Clone Wars -- "Brothers" (Ep. 4.21)

-- A fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.

Something sinister is rising...

And I hate to be all spoilery, but it's the return of the brother of Savage Opress. What? Don't know who that is? Seriously? Because it ought to be pretty obvious.

But he's dead!
Exactly Obi-Wan's reaction.

To be honest, I've never been able to decide how I feel about the fact they decided to bring Darth Maul back. If I'm remembering correctly, my initial reaction was something akin to disgust. I mean, being cut in half is pretty final, even for a Sith.

However, I think I softened on the whole thing over time because the story ended up being pretty good.
I think.
Also, he looks pretty cool.

Most of this episode is taken up by Savage's quest to find Maul.
And I think there's a continuity issue with this episode, but I'm not going to go back and check the other episode to try to figure it out.
Look, it's been a really busy month, and I'm just not doing it. At least I'm not doing until it starts bugging me enough to do it.


  1. I'm encouraged to hear this story turns out well because I'm really not happy about it at the moment. Death is final in Star Wars. I like that. Ghosts are okay. Survival through Darth Maul/giant spider grafting is not.

    1. TAS: Well, I didn't say it turns out "well," just not as poorly as my initial reaction.
      I really can't remember what comes of it and haven't started into season five, yet.
