    I hope they kill Maul off. I still find it silly they brought him back from the dead in a total fan boy way.

      • March 11, 2017 at 3:24 am

        If they kill Maul off I suppose we’ll get another version where it’s his legs running around with a robot upper half.

          lol nice

      • March 11, 2017 at 4:47 am

        Just as believable as a death star, or lightsabers… or any fudging thing else in StarWars.

        Who the hell is watching SW for believability?

        • March 11, 2017 at 7:22 am

          I can believe in the fantasy of huge space weapon and laserswords. A biped humanoid getting severed from the midriff down losing many of his essential body parts and yet is still kicking is a little more of a stretch even for this universe. Wants next sticking Dooku’s head on top of a robot because anything is possible in Star Wars lol.

          • March 11, 2017 at 9:24 am

            Right, but it turns out you’re not the one who gets to draw that line.

          • March 11, 2017 at 3:18 pm

            Of course you would.

          • March 11, 2017 at 5:27 pm

            In the end Seeker, it’s your loss that your suspension of disbelief ends at super lasers and space wizards.

          • March 11, 2017 at 5:47 pm

            Do you even read? I see why your choose that username for yourself lol.

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:02 pm

            You also see why I have him blocked, lol.

          • March 12, 2017 at 7:12 am

            Because you’re a pissant sore loser too, buddy o’pal.

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:29 am

            I do. Seems to be here to stir up trouble. What people do for kicks these days.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:34 pm

            TUD used to whine about how this cartoon wasn’t more adult. He got mad when I pointed out the expectations for a 23 minute animated feature on a children’s network wasn’t going to satisfy his adult expectations.

            He then blocked me and has oddly enough never complained about the same topic again.

            He’s also a misogynistic asswipe. No loss having him block me. You’re welcome to do the same.

            If by stirring up trouble you mean discussing an opinion you posted on a open forum and handing you your ass when you were unable to validate the thought process behind it to begin with without resulting to lame insults.. Well yes, I’m here to stir up trouble.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:46 pm

            You once again think you can debate my opinion. Your username is indeed ironic.

          • March 13, 2017 at 7:15 pm

            We did debate the reason for your opinion. Denial looks cute on you.

          • March 12, 2017 at 7:11 am

            Ah, yes. After being crushed in debate we resort to the ole’ YOUR USER NAME SUITS YOU.

            The funny thing is, Seeker, this user name was chosen to be ironic, and for poor schlubs like yourself to feel like they’ve accomplished when they try to throw it in my face.

            Tack on your little ‘lol’ there and we have ourselves a sore loser. Do come back for some more verbal smack down. It’s been a while since an upstart has tried to come at me.

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:21 am

            How can you debate opinion? I like live action Maul and you like animated Maul. You can say why you like it better but it will always be subjective. If you think you won a debate of opinions then that ironic name you picked for yourself just became a self fulfilling prophecy.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:30 pm

            Never said I didn’t like live action Maul, and that wasn’t the debate on this.

            The discussion was on ‘realism’ in the Star Wars universe.

            You’re not trying to change what the argument was about to eek out a win.

            Sorry bro.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:45 pm

            All I said was a line had to be drawn somewhere even in a fantasy world or you will have a Robot with Dooku’s head or yes Maul walking around with half a body. That is my stance. You can keep saying Star Wars is silly but that does not fly with me.

          • March 13, 2017 at 7:16 pm

            So your okay with Anakin Skywalker using the Force to keep from dying but not another powerful Sith. Got it.

          • March 13, 2017 at 11:58 pm

            Anakin did not get cut in half. So since Star Wars is full of silliness how about another Sith Lord in Dooku coming back head attached to a robot? Or are you drawing a line with getting cut in half? If one Sith Lord can do it another can do right babe?

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:13 am

            First of all, someone else made the comment about Dooku. Stop trying to pass that off as your own witticism. It’s absolutely pathetic.

            Next. Anakin Skywalker came into contact with a lava flow that was so hot he burst into flame almost spontaneously and was scorched across his entire body. So badly in fact, and I know you may not know this so I’ll let you in on a secret, he couldn’t BREATHE anymore. That’s why he needed a suit and a respirator, it was impossible for him to breathe without the assistance of a machine or we would die.

            Yet, he survived until Palpatine came and picked him up.

            Now you may argue there’s been some discussion on how long it took Palpatine to get there, but with your average human being, brain death occurs after three minutes without air.

            I think Palpy took longer than that to reach Anakin on Mustafar.

            SO! Sith Lord cut in half survives using the Force? Silly. Sith Lord nearly burns to death and is unable to breathe on his own and uses the Force to preserve his life? Silly.

            Dooku coming back as a robot brain? Please see the B’omarr Monks of Tatooine, other wise known as the spider droid in Jabba’s Palace from Return of the Jedi.

            What the other more imaginative and intelligent poster said that you have repeated here to prove a point, which of course you said you weren’t arguing because it’s an opinion and apparently that would make one ignorant for doing so, is very silly. And already canon and very plausible.

            Learn something, son. Then try to argue with me.

            Have a nice day!

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:18 am

            I did not read past the first sentence because that witty person you are referring to that made the Dooku comment was… Thanks for the compliment.

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:22 am

            Oh you read the whole post. Go on now, you’ve been schooled.

            “If they kill Maul off I suppose we’ll get another version where it’s his legs running around with a robot upper half.”

            This post came before yours, you even up voted it. It was by Andy, he’s a little farther down.

            Anyways! Thanks for playing! Try harder next time. I like a challenge.

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:25 am

            Apparently you did not read my post either..oh wait you called me witty. No need to carry this any further. Enjoy being blocked by this witty dude.

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:58 am

            Ah yes, another sore loser. Tuck that tail and run, son.

            Mission accomplished.

      • March 11, 2017 at 8:32 am

        Because there never was a guy who could create life and prevent death, right? Surviving getting chopped in half seems trivial in comparison.

        • March 11, 2017 at 3:21 pm

          But he had the power Maul did not. Also it is stated he could save others and not himself.

          • March 11, 2017 at 5:26 pm

            Because he didn’t see Palpatine coming to save himself.

          • March 11, 2017 at 11:06 pm

            Would you call a guy losing all his limbs, and then surviving getting burnt alive with damaged internal organs, nervous system, and skeletal structure any more likely?

          • March 12, 2017 at 2:13 am

            Key word in your article was damaged not missing lol. The life support system is awesome and makes sense. Sidious’s found Vader almost immediately after the fight and preserved him. None of which happened to Maul.

          • March 12, 2017 at 4:30 am

            Sidious didn’t arrive immediately, and the novelisation says it was only his hate for Obi-Wan that kept him alive. Same with Maul, it’s said his singular hatred for Obi-Wan kept him alive.

          • March 12, 2017 at 5:57 am

            “and the novelisation says it was only his hate for Obi-Wan that kept him alive.”

            To be fair, the novelization isn’t canon.

      • March 11, 2017 at 5:37 pm

        Crawl……..yes, walk… lol

    • March 11, 2017 at 3:52 am

      Yeah. Completely sucks that they brought back a character that had such meaningful attraction as a villain, fleshed him out, gave him purpose, back story, and a great voice performance to make him memorable.

      Should have just left him dead.

      • March 11, 2017 at 5:49 am

        Yes, as apposed to doing that with a new character and giving maul back story in something prior to TPM. It is a very large galaxy. He was cut in two and fell down a seemingly endless pit. I didn’t say he sucks, I just said it’s silly…and it is.

        • March 11, 2017 at 6:11 am

          Moon sized super weapons aren’t silly? Laser sword wielding space wizards in bathrobes aren’t silly?

          Have you seen the hats people wear in Star Wars films?

          The whole Universe is bizarre and silly. It’s part of the charm.

          Maul was the new Boba Fett. And even the hardest of the hardcore Prequel fanboys lament his immediate departure after his initial introduction.

          Lucas has a great looking character design he wasted.

          They fixed that.

          • March 11, 2017 at 6:37 am

            I suppose, you know what they say though, there are only two certainties, death and taxes. I guess that isn’t the case in SW lore XD

          • March 11, 2017 at 1:39 pm

            And if you live in the UK, the next DFS sale …

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:27 am

            “The whole Universe is bizarre and silly. It’s part of the charm.”So Maul’s return is bizarre and silly? I hope they stick Dooku’s head on top of a droid body so we can all talk about the charm this kind of stuff brings to the universe.

          • March 11, 2017 at 2:49 pm

            Your comment almost makes sense. Please submit, and try again.

          • March 11, 2017 at 3:23 pm

            I am just trying to get your stance apparently it is if they look cool enough then of course they could survive laughably fatal wounds.

          • March 11, 2017 at 5:22 pm

            My stance is that Star Wars is filled with silly, from the top to the bottom. If having Maul survive being cut in half is too silly for you, may I direct you to a planet that was turned into a hyperspace weapon in Episode VII and shot super novas across the galaxy.

            Or Anakin Skywalker, who was lit on fire by a lava flow and burned nearly to death, but preserved his life through the Force. They took their cue with Maul from that.

            And you know, wtf, if you’re a Jedi you can come back as a ghost and talk to people. Because this is the epitome of realism.

            It’s Star Wars. Realism takes a far back seat. Physics does not apply. Mortality does not apply. It’s always been about exciting space adventures. They resurrected a character and gave him the story he was due.

            Why don’t we talk about flight characteristics of starfighters in the atmosphere while we’re here pissing back and forth about ‘realism’ in Star Wars.

          • March 11, 2017 at 5:52 pm

            I am glad we both agree Maul return is silly then.

          • March 11, 2017 at 6:51 pm

            Profound comment.

          • March 12, 2017 at 7:09 am

            Oh Seeker, I don’t agree with anything you say.

            Trust me on that.

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:15 am

            You said in defense of your position on Maul that this galaxy is filled with silly things. So if that is not your stance on his return I recommend picking a new argument position.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:31 pm

            Really? Again, you’re talking about a film universe filled with outrageous silly things. It’s an excellent stance in a discussion when you try to whine about ‘realism’ in the Star Wars Universe.

            You could, you know, just said you didn’t care for Maul’s survival and left it at that, I would have never replied.

            But when your argument is realism, yes, I’m going to point out you’re complaining about something that doesn’t exist in the Star Wars universe.

            At all.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:42 pm

            You said this maul thing is fine because Star Wars is filled with silly things but you will not acknowledge that by saying that you are Maul is silly. Your argument is filled with holes but go ahead and do some do some Internet grandstanding if that what helps you get through the day.

          • March 14, 2017 at 1:19 am

            Sorry, I missed this. Let me reply.

            How is my argument filled with holes? I’m saying judging anything in Star Wars as realistic is silly, because Star Wars is silly. Yes, Maul surviving is silly, but it doesn’t bother me. I’m used to the outlandish technology and events that occur in the franchise. It’s what happens. Over and over again.

            And internet grandstanding is what I do best, so thank you for the platform.

  • March 11, 2017 at 12:31 am

    Based on the episode description released a bit ago, am I the only one worried that the whole fight will just be a vision that Ezra has and will not really occur. That Ezra will find a way to stop Maul before he finds Kenobi and so it will just be one big fake out.

    • March 11, 2017 at 8:52 am

      It won’t be. I don’t think that there’s ever been a real cop-out in any of Dave Filoni’s Star Wars cartoons, and I don’t suspect that the big event that they’ve been teasing all season long is going to have one of those “it was a dream” endings.

      – Pomojema

  • March 11, 2017 at 12:31 am

    Since this will feature Tatooine, there will be no excuse not to bantha the episode up as much as possible. And they could throw in several blue bantha milk shots as well.

    • March 11, 2017 at 1:22 am

      F that. I wanna see some Bantha’s GETTING milked. I wanna feel like I’m in the desert farmlands. Or at star wars land when you go to the soda machine make the blue milk dispenser a bantha udder.

  • March 11, 2017 at 12:54 am

    Hope he dies for real this time. I hate Witwer’s over acting. He is not even Maul any more. Reminds me of amatuer Shakespeare night in the park.

    • March 11, 2017 at 6:55 pm

      Not Maul anymore? What? Are you comparing Witwer’s performance to the oh so many lines Maul has in TPM? Great comparison. Pretty sure your comment should actually read: “He is not my Maul anymore”

      • March 11, 2017 at 7:04 pm

        You do not have to have 100 lines of a dialogue to qualify as character. Maul’s whole personality was he was a silent hunter who preferred fighting his enemies to talking to him. He was animalistic in many ways and I loved that about him. Now he runs his mouth and twirls his mustache and very much belongs in the cartoon world he resides in now. As silly as bringing him back was, his utter personality change bothered me more.

        • March 11, 2017 at 7:06 pm

          “Maul’s whole personality was he was a silent hunter who preferred fighting his enemies to talking to him. He was animalistic in many ways and I loved that about him.”

          No offense, but I think you’ve just *invented* a personality for Maul that wasn’t there in the first place. Not only did he not have any lines in TPM, he didn’t have any character moments. He just stood and ran and did stuff. He was a walking lightsaber. That’s it. He didn’t HAVE a personality or a character to begin with imo.

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:16 pm

            He was an assassin that is who he is. The animated team is the one who invented a new personality for him.

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:22 pm

            Yeah, I just personally think that


            isn’t much of a personality. How interesting is that, really? It’s cool to look at, but it’s not actually a CHARACTER to be invest in? Why should we actually CARE about Maul in TPM when he has no personality?

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:32 pm

            First assassin is what his job was i never said that was his character. He was hunting Jedi and the Queen so why being the hunter he is waste time talking to them? You say I am the one who invented a personality and that is obviously not the case. Filoni did in order to “fix” him.

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:38 pm

            Yes, Filoni did “invent” a personalty (as in he wrote it). But when I say that you “invented” a personality for him, I mean that you’re creating a personality in your brain that Maul never actually had. It’s revisionist history, in my opinion.

          • March 11, 2017 at 7:44 pm

            That is definitely your opinion.

    Please end this guy’s existence. Do it justice… but end it please. IMO he’s overstayed his welcome. Admittedly I wasn’t to keen on his resurrection as it was…

    • March 11, 2017 at 10:25 am

      Forced to agree. I think the “out for revenge at all costs” has somewhat limited the mystery of his character and I personally am a bit bored with it now.

    • March 11, 2017 at 7:35 pm

      especially after the inconclusive finish between ahsoka and vader last year. give this battle a decisive finish. the characters deserve it.

  • March 11, 2017 at 10:41 am

    Maul looks very fired up from hearing him scream Ben Kenobi’s name; should be a very exciting episode. ^_^

  • March 11, 2017 at 11:03 am

    This series have a problem when the season climax needs to be starred by TCW characters instead of Rebels characters. It already happened with Ashoka vs Vader. TCW should have never been cancelled.

    • March 11, 2017 at 6:21 pm

      They made Space Aladin and the rest of the Rebels crew in order to appeal to the younglings.

      • March 12, 2017 at 12:26 pm

        It’s not terribly smart to use “Space Aladdin” in a derogatory way when the main character of the movie that started the whole franchise is, basically, Space Wart (Wart/Arthur from ‘the Sword in the Stone’).

        • March 12, 2017 at 4:06 pm

          Space Wart is awesome though. Space Aladdin is not but as said I am not a ten year old so I am in the wrong demographic to like him.

    • March 11, 2017 at 7:13 pm

      To be fair, the actual season finale is the attack on Attollon.

      …which is centered around a character from Legends.

    • March 13, 2017 at 10:36 pm

      I think there are likely folks at Disney who agree it shouldn’t have been cancelled. Unfortunately, there are boring reasons behind it. Notably the cost per episode and the tangled licensing between Lucasfilm and Cartoon Network (Disney would obviously want the show on their own channels). It doesn’t make the decision any less maddening, just providing context.

    I feel they have let us down a bit on Maul by painting him as obsessed with little more than Kenobi. The guy was a trained Sith Lord and all we get now is his “revenge at all costs” plot. I would like to have had more depth to the character, but I feel I am getting bored with him. I hope Obi-Wan takes him out for good.

    • March 11, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      “I feel they have let us down a bit on Maul by painting him as obsessed with little more than Kenobi.”

      I completely agree with you, although I’m still not convinced, that he is out for revenge. He could have easily killed Obi-wan twice before during TCW, but he didn’t. In fact Maul said this, when he had him unarmed and surrounded: “I NEVER planned on killing you, but I will make you share my pain, Kenobi.”

      Filoni and co stated several times, that Maul’s main motivation now is to build a legacy, to leave something behind (that is why he wants Ezra as his apprentice). I just don’t see, how the whole revenge stuff fits into this. Against Sidious and Vader? Sure! But who cares about a broken man on an insignificant planet.

      Now, I’m sure they can execute the “killing Kenobi” story in a compelling way, but I do hope, that they came up with something more interesting.

      But these are just my thoughts, so who cares?

      • March 11, 2017 at 1:55 pm

        I care! 🙂

    • March 11, 2017 at 5:15 pm

      “The guy was a trained Sith Lord…”

      Hmmm…that’s highly debatable. For all we know, he was merely one of several pawns that Palpatine used, granting them the title of “Darth” just to squeeze as much out of them as possible. As far as I can tell, Palpatine was the last, fully trained Sith Lord. The rest were just lackeys used to get the job that he needed done, done.

      Besides, getting cut in half and tossed away like garbage tends to do things to ones psyche…or so I would think. 😉

      • March 12, 2017 at 5:47 am

        So a partially trained sith pawn, as you put it, was able to kill a Jedi Master?

        • March 12, 2017 at 5:53 am

          Yes. And a partially trained Jedi Padawan was able to kill him.

          Anything is possible.

          • March 12, 2017 at 5:57 am

            Ya, after maul had bested Kenobi he got cocky, let his gaurd down, and that led to him getting chopped in half. Nothing besides fan speculation implies that he wasn’t a fully trained sith lord

          • March 12, 2017 at 5:58 am

            Most canon material seems to suggest that he was trained as more of a weapon than a true Sith apprentice.

          • March 12, 2017 at 6:02 am

            Which Canon material are you referring to?

          • March 12, 2017 at 7:27 am

            Canon character guides, comics, supplementary material, Wookieepedia (which Lucasfilm endorses), the like.

          • March 12, 2017 at 7:53 pm

            Ya.. nothing in those suggest what you’re saying either. The only Canon comics he’s in is son of dathomir and the new one they just created, and neither of those support your claim. Character guides always refer to him as a Darth, not just a force user trained in the dark side like the Inquisitors. As for wookieepedia, if you have to refer to that then you’re really stretching it. Regardless, let’s look at what wookieepedia says:

            “Sidious eventually abandoned Talzin, despite promising to make her his apprentice, and instead took Maul once he realized the boy’s potential.[8] Once under Sidious’ tutelage, Maul began training as his Sith apprentice.[1]

            For years, Maul was trained to become a weapon of the Sith. He became an acrobatic warrior, one trained to be relentless against his enemies, and learned to use a dual-bladed lightsaber. His Sith training made Maul long for revenge against the Jedi Order,[1] which had defeated the Sith a millennium earlier.[11] With his master, Maul hoped to destroy the Jedi and restore the Sith to galactic power.[1]”

            The only thing you keep referencing is that it says that he was trained to become a weapon of the sith, which doesn’t prove your point. What about being a weapon implies that his training was incomplete or that he isn’t a real darth? Sith apprentices are always used as weapons to do their master’s bidding. Maul is the only apprentice of sidious that had trained to become a sith Lord since his childhood; his entire life was spent training in the dark side. Being called a weapon doesn’t add or subtract anything from him being a true Darth.

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:15 pm

            Well, we do know that Darth Sidious basically planned to let him get killed from the beginning, and we know that he at least viewed his training as disingenuous.

            Forgive me for coming to a conclusion, but it’s not that large of a jump, really.

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:49 pm

            Ayayai. No, that’s yet another fabricated statement. Why would sidious invest more than a decade of training for maul and yet plan to let him get killed? He was shocked and disappointed when he found out that maul had supposedly been killed. As for Maul’s training being disingenuous, he never said that either. Maul says in Rebels, “there was a time when my power was almost absolute”. That’s not a statement made by someone who thinks that his training was incomplete or partial.

          • March 12, 2017 at 9:01 pm

            Yeah, but he also says that the Sith used him, and betrayed him and blah blah blah. While that’s true of any Sith apprenitce, don’t be surprised if someone interprets that differently than you do.

          • March 12, 2017 at 9:05 pm

            Still doesn’t change the fact that he was a real darth, and that his training was legit. That’s all I’m arguing.

          • March 12, 2017 at 11:19 pm

            I don’t think you and I REALLY disagree. In the end, the Darth Maul comic will probably give us a concise answer.

          • March 13, 2017 at 3:13 pm

            Has it occured to you that he character no doubt argues that from his own perspective, rather than one of universal fact? As far as Palaptine was concerned he was dead until he showed up again in TCW. Of course Maul would say he’s been betrayed if he comes back and finds that another apprentice has taken his place.

      • March 13, 2017 at 3:08 pm

        You realise you’re indirectly arguing that Vader wasn’t a Sith, right?

        • March 13, 2017 at 3:55 pm

          Yep…in Palpatine’s eyes, I certainly am. Through the veil of the canon material out there now, one could argue as much.

    • March 11, 2017 at 7:23 pm

      i that kenobi has become maul’s white whale. as he descends further into madness maul feels he only has his revenge left to him. i mean, maul lost his spot as right hand to the most powerful man in the galaxy, then he lost his legs, his brother and his mind. makes sense for me that his obsession with the one he thinks started this chain of events would consume him.

    • March 11, 2017 at 9:05 pm

      The guy was indeed a trained Sith Lord, and petty revenge schemes is totally their thing, if you want to call being cut in half and left for dead a petty grievance.

  • March 11, 2017 at 5:50 pm

    Disagree with me all you want, but i truly love what they did with Maul (overall). Between TCW and Rebels, i like the way his character has become. Sure, if he didn’t get cut in half by Kenobi he would likely still be the way he was, but if you truly don’t see why he is the way he is that’s not an issue on the storytelling group.

    Why does he care about Kenobi so much and not Vader/Palpy? Well..Duh, Maul and Kenobi were almost mirror images of each other. Both young apprentices, Light and Dark. That destroyed Mauls destiny, sureeee Palpy killed his brother and left him to rot but in Mauls mind this all stems from his halving heh. I also kinda think that Maul has plans beyond this, obviously. He wants Ezra as an apprentice which so i feel that he thinks once he deals with the person who took his potential from him, he can and his new apprentice can move on and take out the sith.

    Just saying…if you can factor in every element of his story you should be able to see why he is how he is.

  • March 11, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    So, I believe this is what the fanboys wanted…
    After the fight this ridiculous arc finally ends.
    Silly fanfiction resurrection.

    • March 11, 2017 at 10:34 pm

      I do consider this fanfic.

      • March 11, 2017 at 10:44 pm

        So do I, though I consider the entire Rebels show as fanfic…
        Active jedi were treasure hunting ancient sith/jedi artifacts so close to ANH? Come on…

        • March 12, 2017 at 12:15 am

          Kanan should of been killed of a lot sooner IMO, giving Ezra a chance to evolve as a loose-cannon. Partially trained by a Jedi, but no follow up compared to Luke with Yoda.

          Doesn’t make sense why Vader isn’t hunting him down…

          • March 12, 2017 at 1:42 pm

            That would make more sense continuity wise.

            “The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that’s left of their religion.”
            I really doubt Tarkin would say this to Vader knowing what Kanan & co were doing just a couple years before ANH…

          • March 12, 2017 at 8:31 pm

            Unless Kanan and Co. die. Just because they’re alive now doesn’t mean they always will be. It also doesn’t mean that Tarkin isn’t anywhere that there must be more Jedi out there.

          • March 12, 2017 at 9:25 pm

            Exactly. Ezra would of been a far more interesting character finding his own path in using the force, more so if his lack of control or ability to listen caused Kanan’s death. Kanan now appears spent in the show and Ezra is getting dull.

        • March 12, 2017 at 5:51 am

          Do you know what the word fanfic means?

    • March 12, 2017 at 1:02 am

      lucas ok’d his return originally, so get that ‘fanfic’ stuff outta here.

      • March 12, 2017 at 5:52 am

        No, no. A fanboy doesn’t like it, so it’s a shitty fanfiction.

        Get it together. /s

      • March 12, 2017 at 1:36 pm

        Lucas oking stuff isn’t necessarily a good sign either since 1980…
        Though I’m pretty sure he didn’t care much about the show’s plot.

        • March 12, 2017 at 8:29 pm

          Doesn’t change that “fanfic” status though. Lucas would’ve been right there with Filoni when Maul got his cybernetic legs.

    • March 12, 2017 at 5:50 am

      That thumbnail is horrifying….

  • March 12, 2017 at 5:33 am

    the obi wan revenge arc makes no sense for maul’s character because of this reason:
    in the clone wars, maul had the opportunity to kill kenobi but chose to kill his love interest satine instead because he knew that this would hurt kenobi more than anything else. he already got his revenge. he let kenobi live so that satine’s death could constantly haunt him and make him suffer.
    so now all of a sudden maul wants to kill him? makes no sense, considering he already had the opportunity.
    would of made a lot more sense for his character to try to go after vader and palpatine, maybe with ezra as his apprentice.

    • March 12, 2017 at 5:51 am

      Maybe he’s just gone crazy. Or maybe he something bigger planned….

    • March 12, 2017 at 6:37 am

      Well yes, he wanted him to suffer, but i think he figured Kenobi died during Order 66, so to realize he has been hiding out and living through his old age probably burns him up. It was probably a shock that he was still alive.

  • March 13, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    Yawn…Once again, Vader should have killed everyone on this show already. blahhh

    • March 14, 2017 at 2:53 am

      I’m sure he has more important things going on. Either that or he can’t find them. With your logic, he should have killed Luke a couple thousand times over in the huge gap between ANH and ESB, but clearly that didn’t happen.

      • March 14, 2017 at 4:04 am

        Luke comment makes no sense…for this series, him showing up and wiping them out would be gut wrenching and prove the Dark Lords true power…what a great way it would be to end this show!

        Btw…kill Luke?????huh?

        • March 14, 2017 at 5:13 am

          You say “Vader should have killed everyone on this show already”, as if Vader not tracking down every character and killing them IMMEDIATELY is a bad thing. I was pointing out that with that logic, he should have been able to track down Luke during that 4 year gap between ANH and ESB. But clearly what you MEANT to say was that you hope that Vader end sup killing everyone, and I agree that that would be cool. At the same time, I think the Dark Lord has already proved his true power.

          • March 14, 2017 at 2:20 pm

            Rogue One sure helped to show that…but, to kill Ezra and his crew would just be fabulous….lol!
