I find that for some reason I'm less bothered about the direction they took now that it's apparently a done deal. It's kind of like the bringing back Maul thing. I was dead-set against that as soon as I heard the spoiler that they were bringing him back. Even when I saw Witches in the Mist
, I was still in denial, arguing that it was just a trick, that Talzin was simply manipulating Savage to get him to do her bidding. Then I got into the Maul episodes and totally bought into them based on the overall quality, Witwer's performance, etc.
