I gave up all hope for one day seeing George Lucas in Heaven, because I'm sure that episode p***ed God off.
Tommy, close your eyes.
Not that Lucas hasn't changed his mind before or chosen to ignore what he's said before, but didn't he once say that the reason he had Maul get cut in half was because he wanted to show he was dead, absolutely dead, not coming back, because his top half was removed from his upper half?

Yes, and he also claims it was always his intention for Greedo to shoot first, since otherwise Han is killing people when we first see him, and it's impossible to redeem him.
Guess he missed the memo that most of us first saw Vader killing people in far more gruesome fashion and are now supposed to believe he's a good guy who had a bad dream about his wife.
Tommy, close your eyes.

again I'm in the minority here but I actually liked the story arc of Savage Opress and I'm looking forward to seeing how they pull off the return of Darth Maul. i think it would be neat to see him as a cyborg.
Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks
As for this story arc, I didn't hate it. Instead, I liked it, though I don't understand how it needed an appearance by Maul at the end. Qui Gon is coming back next week, maybe Jango and Zam Wessel didn't die either, who knows. No one stays dead in comics, maybe this CW show will follow that trend too. I always wonder about the life of a show that has to bring in new and/or previously dead characters.
The series may never be the original trilogy in terms of story quality; certainly it hasn't lived up to the Tartakovsky Clone Wars series for me, though that show had a completely different mandate. The new CW show has not always been as outlandish as some EU stuff, but this CW show is made for kids mainly, like the majority of the prequel trilogy was. Many of us adults that were kids when the original trilogy came out have a much higher standard of quality we expected from anything SW. The prequels, to an extent, reduced the quality expectation. It may be the product of the 80s era, where there was maybe a higher level of quality associated with kid related entertainment product, which though some of it may seem silly to us now, is still superior to much of what children get now. Regardless, I recall hearing once that there would be 100 episodes of CW and we're about halfway through that. Who knows what other "secrets [will be] revealed."
Maybe it's actually Darth Maul Jr, that way Lucasfilm could be right at saying it's Darth Maul, from a certain point of view.
