Nightsisters is a season 3 episode.

I know that he appeared as a hologram in the TCW film.

Pretty sure we've seen him in Sidious mode on several occasions, but usually giving orders to underlings; I don't recall if we've seen him fight before.

About the ongoing discussion of Ahsoka's fate (as well as Maul's) it makes me wonder if The Clone Wars production team have had any knowledge of the upcoming Star Wars prequel trilogy during this season, last season, even earlier? Would it be much of a stretch to see Ahsoka in episode 7 and beyond?
You mean sequel trilogy, right?

Ian Abercrombie, the voice of Palpatine/Sidious, died about a year and a week ago, so these scripts would've been written and recorded before then. It's not clear how long ago the outline for the sequels was settled on.


She'd be old, sure, but maybe her race doesn't age quickly.
Wookieepedia says a Togruta's average lifespan is about 94 standard years. Ahsoka was born c. 36 BBY, so she would've been around 40 at the time of Return of the Jedi. If the new movies bring back any of the original actors, then we might expect them to be set about 30-odd years after ROTJ to reflect the actors' real-life aging, so that would put Ahsoka in her 70s. That's about 75-80% of her people's average life expectancy, so if we assume a standard of living comparable to the United States, that would correspond to around 60 for a human -- not really that old at all.


The conversation between Obi Wan and Maul was excellent as well. They never traded words in TPM, did they?
I don't think Maul ever spoke in the movie.

Darth Maul has three lines in The Phantom Menace, voiced by Peter Serafinowicz. The first two are on Coruscant, and the last is on Naboo.

Oddly enough he spoke in one of the "tone poem" ads as well.

When Maul is finally killed, I want to see Anakin/Obi-Wan slice up the corpse (off-panel) into a dozen pieces and say "just to be sure"
Don't let Obi Wan do it. He cuts people up, lets them burn alive and they still come back after him. Poor guy can't get a break.

One of my close friends is always complaining that Obi-Wan gets his ass kicked too often in the prequels. I wonder if Obi-Wan is going to 'lose his shit' after Satine's execution and get some revenge of his own? I don't think so. It doesn't seem in his character. Is Obi-Wan not the most centered Jedi around? Besides his forbidden romance to Satine, of course. he seemed quite composed from his rescue.

Quite right! I meant to say Massacre.

Indeed I did! My post was mangled up. The Superbowl's been distracting me from the mighty TrekBBS. The sooner it's over I can re-watch this arc from the beginning again.

Oh! We haven't discussed the death of The Twilght, have we? Poor old ship. Under the circumstances, I can't imagine Anakin giving Obi Wan hell. I actually hope they deal a little bit with the fall out next week... these are big events in Obi Wan's overall character.

But what would make Anakin killing him after he killed Ahsoka different? At this point Maul has taken more from Obi-Wan, so if anyone deserves to get revenge it's him.
Because revenge is not the Jedi way. It's one of the reasons Lucas wisely chose to rename Episode VI from Revenge of the Jedi to Return of the Jedi.

I could see Obi fighting Maul and ultimately taking him into custody or Maul somehow dies of his own accord, but the idea of Obi killing Maul in revenge for Satine doesn't feel right. Plus it goes against the whole Jedi detachment thing.

Anakin killing Maul makes more sense, especially if Ashoka is his victim, because we have seen Anakin kill in anger over a loved one before and we know what his attachment to Padme will lead to in Episode 3. Anakin taking revenge just puts him one step closer to a complete embrace of the dark side.

Plus it would might answer some of those Vader v. Maul debates.
I'm not saying he should actually go after him looking for revenge. I just think if he dies it should be by Obi-Wan's blade.

Uhhh....

If Anakin can just Force push the buzz droids away so easily, why didn't Obi-Wan do that in ROTS?

These aren't the droids you're looking for.

There are so many times a Force wielder could use the Force to do something and they don't. Force usage seems to be determined by the plot.

Perhaps it's more difficult to do in space with no gravity?

Or maybe it is just something Anakin can do and Obi Wan can't.
