Well that was a particularly brutal episode. Ah, Sidious putting the smackdown on the upstarts...how fitting. I wonder what he has planned for Maul?

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.

I had thought Maul might be faking it but we don't see it happen. Personally I think he has fallen out of the Dark side of the force. He is more emotional and cares. Look at how he ran to his brother. I think those years being crazy have changed him more than we expected. His dark powers are closer to Asaji now.

What an awesome, brutal, beautiful episode! I was seriously shocked when Maul killed Satine right in front of Obi-Wan's face. What a dark ending to that story! And then to cap it off with Sidious vs the Maul Brothers, gorgeous! And he killed Savage! And took down Maul! That was amazing!

I liked the begging.

Asajj - but her name is probably taken from Asaji.

Way better than the duel between him, Mace Windu Kit Fisto and whatshisface.

I don't like the way Maul begged for his life, though. He should have been stronger than that, defiant to the end. But I guess he was regressing to his crazy garbage world time?

I am really mixed on that. At keast it was a suprising twist. I totally expected him to bite the bullet.

Should he, though? Against anyone else, sure. But he was Sidious's apprentice. I'm sure the Sith master-apprentice relationship is traditionally a very abusive one, with the apprentice subjected to a lot of cruelty by the master and brutalized into submission. So Sidious would've been the one person who could break down Maul's defenses and reduce him to that submissive status again.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I would love to read novelizations of the Maul/Savage arcs. So much happened in these 66 minutes alone that could be expanded into an amazing story.

I'm hoping this all continues as the last arc of these series, in which Maul kills Ahsoka and Anakin kills Maul.

I'd prefer to have Obi-Wan kill Maul (again) myself.

Taken Master Kenobi's kill, Jedi Skywalker has.

How embarrassing. How embarrassing.
