What a crazy awesome episode. Can I say good fanwank?
Wonder what Maul will be doing? Shall we be saying goodbye to Anakin's apprentice soon?
Indeed good fanwank, definitely made the dork in me want more...except for Maul begging, just don't see that happening. Maul always seemed like the kind of psycho who would look death in the eye and laugh in its face, but that is not how they wrote it.
This is pure speculation, and spoilers might be abound for anyone who just wanders in: Sidious sends Maul to slay Ahsoka, and as some have suggested, pushing Anakin closer to the dark side. He already harbors the pain of losing his mother, add losing Ahsoka to the mix and you get the Anakin in ROTS; a man in constant fear of personal loss.
Can't wait to see where this goes.
