The Prison Arc!

For all you Obi-Wan fans, there's an Obi-centred arc coming right up!

"Obi-Wan Kenobi is turning villain! Star Wars: The Clone Wars launches a four-episode arc January 13 that finds the legendary Jedi knight going undercover as an evil marksman from the planet Concord Dawn. He'll infiltrate the Republic prison to gain information about a Separatist plot and, while there, he will mix it up with a cadre of vicious bounty hunters including faves like Cad Bane, Bossk, and Boba Fett. "Embedding himself in this group is a pretty awful risk for Obi-wan." says supervising director Dave Filoni. "It'll cause conflict between him and Anakin Skywalker, the kind that will test their relationship. How well do they really know one another? How much do they truly trust each other?" Among the highlights is an awesome obstacle-course tournament in which the inmates, including Obi-wan, must prove themselves and fight each other for survival. And teases Filoni, "There just may be a prison break!""

"Deception: ""When the Jedi learn of a Separatist plot to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine, Obi-Wan is sent to a Republic prison disguised as a convict to extract information from the conspirator. While inside, Obi-Wan discovers that Cad Bane has been enlisted and they must work together if they are to escape."

"Friends and Enemies: ""Fleeing across the galaxy, a disguised Obi-Wan, Cad Bane, and Morallo Eval are wanted fugitives pursued by Anakin and Ahsoka. Bane and Kenobi work together to evade the relentless pursuit from Anakin but it is Obi-Wan who must confront his former apprentice and do so without blowing his cover."

Obi-Wan is working with Bane? What is the galaxy coming to? JK, this sounds interesting. We have:

The return of Boba Fett. Last time we saw him, the young bounty hunter was being escorted to prison after his failed assassination attempt on Jedi Master Mace Windu. Based on screenshots from different trailers, I'd say that he's grown up a little. It's possible that over a year has passed since we've last seen him.

The jailbreak of Cad Bane: One word- Cool! But how the heck does Bane not realize it's Obi-Wan who is his partner in crime? Even if he IS in disguise.

Anakin/Obi-Wan confrontation- do I smell foreshadowing? This could be interesting. Anakin is chasing Obi-Wan across the galaxy, then they possibly argue? Sounds like episode III to me.

Then throw Ahsoka, Bossk, an obstacle course and a new bounty hunter into the mix and this ought to be interesting!
