Oh come on, the Jar Jar episodes aren't "that" bad.


I actually quite like the Jar Jar and Padme episodes. I like some variety in my stories.

Getting back to this week's ep, I didn't mind the minor bait-and-switch (with the story focusing solely on Asajj and not the red-faced, horned dude).

If this is how she bows out of the series, I don't mind the ending they gave Asajj.

Episode 421: Brothers

The first of the season finale episodes has done absolutely nothing to make me warm up to the idea of bringing back Darth Maul. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad episode, just kind of pointeless to me.

Spoiler


And somebody call RA Salvatore, this episode's writers totally "borrowed" his Drider concept...

I want to know how maul survived being cut in half , falling down a very very very deep shaft at the bottom of a massive power plant that Appears to have survived the month long occupation of the city with out much damage. A massively damaged facility might have accounted for maul being taken away by a salvage ship, but that appears not to be the case.

I think we deserve some kind of explanation as to how Maul ended up on a garbage planet with a robot spider legs.

The more important question is: who brought him the life back and gave the spider legs?

The explanation to Darth Maul's return is gonna be interesting to say the least. If he was able to survive the death we saw in Episode 1, why couldn't any other fallen Jedi do the same (is the Dark Side really stronger?). I'm expecting to see some kind of reincarnation story from a Marvel comic to explain this.

Not what I know...
They call the human race from the planet what they come or afiliation.
Like Jango Fett and his (clone) son Boba, are Mandalorian (I don't remember now the name of planet where Jango come, I read in the comic from Dark Horse).

Although... Jango was not mandalorian. He only wore their armor. If I recall, the mandalorians were a lil bit upset by that in the clone wars cartoon.

Jango was a Mandalorian by afiliation.
His origin in the comic, his parents are killed by a rogue Mandalorian faction.
And he are "adopted" by the leader of other faction.

Just watched the Maul return episode. He was kinda pathetic. Not the guy I remembered. Not a guy who uses the force in any way. I hope they are going somewhere good with this.

I wasn't a big fan of the episode. Not liking Maul being alive.. that said, I hope Obi Wan finishes the job. Perhaps taking out both Maul and Savage. Though I can see Ventress getting involved, then her and Obi Wan defeat them.

Too me it seemed like there was too many cut scenes or scenes showing characters "sensing" something sinister. The whole thing with Anakin and Ahsoka was completely pointless. As was the scene with Ventress having a drink with that bounty hunter.

Also I would assume that Maul is no where near as powerful as he once was, seeing as how he would have about half his midiclorian count... right? That and like 12-13 years of no training with the force... Maybe I am overthinking this, but I would hope Maul in a one on one fight with Obi Wan (who defeated Maul as a Padawan) he would just get his ass kicked handidly this time around.

That said season finale:

Episode 422: Revenge

Savage and Maul, no reunited, pursue Obi-Wan Kenobi in search of revenge, and the Jedi Knight finds himself forced to unite with a surprising ally to defend against the deadly siblings.

Here's a preview of Obi Wan vs. Maul:

Maul was better when he didn't talk...he said like 3 words in TPM which is WHY he was soooo COOL. Come on---this isn't Days of Our Lives...people (bad guys) should STAY dead.

I liked that he was pathetic. He got chopped in half, fell down thousands of feet and even bumped his head on the way down, and then got thrown in the trash. I think that would change a man. lol

Not too shabby of an ep.

Spoiler


Looking back at the whole season, it kinda sucks that we only got one arc really centered on the clones.

Not that he's stupidç
In TPM, he doesn't have much to say, or to say for someone, since most of time, he stay alone.

And besides, actions speak louder than words XD

Of course Maul is whiny and moody now, as well as crazy and irrational. He lost his nuts, and is essentialy a woman now, makes total sense.

Guess the reason he didn't off Obi so quickly was because he wanted to talk to Obi about his FEELINGS.

its not like they are bringing vader back or anything..

To address how he lived, maybe one's chance of survival is greater if is force sensitive. It would follow the idea of the force. From a taoist (origin of Jedi) perspective, control of energy around you does heal you.

Wow, this is ages ago to you guys, but started watching the first episodes of season one and it is a GREAT series. Even the GF got pissed when one of those manta rays (flying through the nebula when Annie took the short cut to get to Grievous's ship) clipped and knocked the head off an R2 unit, she yelled "what the, aw man",, I thought she was sleeping, but she's really into it. the kids are glued to it too. Thanks

Agreed. It's a damn good show & an excellent addition to the SW universe. Any so called SW fan who can't get past the CGI or the Cartoony designs is really missing out.

WIN! :lol:

Well I noticing a pattern that at towards the end of each season they introduce a new villian, but really never gets any conclusion in the following season.
Also it's annoying how the mini story arcs appear to not follow each other. As if they all got a seperate timeline within each season.

Other than that it really wasn't a great season, and the appearance of Maul salvaged some fanboy fantasies.

I feel slighted that the previous arc (Obi-Wan in disguise) was twice as long as THE RETURN OF MAUL. Of course, all of next season could be about Maul, but probably not. He and Oppress will probably show up at the end of next season for another 2-parter.

I thought this season was far better than season 3, although still needed more clone-based episodes.

I personally liked the General Krell arc the best, although the episode where they fought on speeder bikes with those cool sidecars that could pivot back 90 degrees against Commando Droids was pretty cool.

So if one were to summarize this season in a few words, it would be: water fights, Droids "Gump"ing it, Krell, and torture Obi-Wan.
