They could if they aired almost every week without many breaks.

Maul needs to die (again) in the Clone Wars series. That would make the most sense thematically.

Absolutely. Whatever they have planned for them, they shouldn't assume that the core film audience is out watching all of the Clone Wars episodes.

For consistency Obi Wan must kill Maul "again." Otherwise there is so much material set in stone out there that would suddenly become incorrect (i.e. Q: Star Wars trivia game: Who killed Darth Maul?)

However I hope they take their time correcting this. After the four partner this year I'm convinced bringing Maul back from the dead was a stroke of genius. Perhaps we'll even learn how he was able to keep alive. Being cut in half is not something most bipeds should be able to... ahem... 'walk away from.'

The question is, will they roll Maul back out next season and give him final closure, or will they keep him on ice for use in some future media project somewhere down the timeline.

My guess is that Darth Maul makes for a great poster child, and that's something that Lucasfilm/Disney is not going to want to squander. Especially after all the hoopla of bringing him back in the first place.

What they do with Maul will probably depend just on how much longer the show is going to go on.

Mostly it will probably depend on what they do about where they left Madalore, since the episode ended by implying its going to become a battleground.

I don't really think this crew cares much about consistency with other sources...

I'm leaning toward a Raistlin-Fistandantilus kind of thing.

Looks like Tim Curry is replacing Ian Ambercrombie as the voice of Palpatine.

This could be interesting, he has a very distinctive voice.

^Interesting, but quite a departure in sound. Abercrombie sounded somewhat like Ian McDiarmid (and had the same first name!), but Curry's voice is unmistakeable as anything but Curry's voice.

(And I guess nobody will be replacing Abercrombie as Ganthet on Green Lantern, since that's been cancelled.)

You know its a good thing that Palpatine being evil isn't a state secret, becuase this would totally give it away


Yes, I know he doesn't only play bad guys. But come on this is the guy said to have not been hired to play the Joker, becuase he was TOO SCARY.

And who replaced Curry as the Joker? Mark Hamill! It's all connected! Luke and the Emperor were joined through the Dark Side after all!

Wait Curry is already voicing Palpatine.

I thought he would have been starting next season.

Excellent episode.

Looks like the Wookieepedians are going to have a busy day.

Excellent episode.I really hope we get a Season 6 because it would bring a lot of exciting possibilities to the show.

I was impressed that CN let those end credits play uninterrupted. It was predicted who was responsible but I still liked how everything played out. Ashley Eckstein did a great job with Ahsoka.
