->''The enemy of my enemy is my friend.''

Savage Opress has finally found his brother, Darth Maul, crippled and insane as a result of [[Film/ThePhantomMenace his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi]]. Now Savage brings Maul to their home planet, where Mother Talzin, the Nightsister shaman-witch, might help him recover...


* AllThereInTheManual: Obi-Wan and Ventress escape the transport by using the specially built cockpit/escape-ship, apparently leaving Savage and Maul drifting in space. However the episode guide reveals that the room in which the brothers discuss their next steps at the end of the episode is a secondary cockpit for the transport.
* AtopAMountainOfCorpses: Maul is standing on one when he first appears to Obi-Wan on Raydonia.
* BestServedCold: By the end of the episode, Maul realises that after waiting for his revenge for so long, he really can afford to wait a little longer.
* BodyHorror: Maul's transformation by Mother Talzin.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Obi-Wan pretends he doesn't know Maul, but Maul rebuts this by calling him out on forgetting Qui-Gon's death so easily.
-->'''Obi-Wan:''' ''[feigning ignorance]'' I'm not sure I've made your acquaintance.\\
'''Darth Maul:''' I am surprised you could have forgotten me so easily, after I killed your master, and you left me for dead on Naboo!\\
'''Obi-Wan:''' ''[horrified]'' [[OhCrap It]] ''[[OhCrap is]]'' [[OhCrap you]].
* CallForward; When Maul and Savage arrive on Raydonia, we see a shot of Maul igniting his lightsaber while standing in front of a group of unsuspecting children in the same way Anakin does in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' (that serves as the page picture for VillainyDiscretionShot).
* CentralTheme: Revenge, of course. Maul's obsession with revenge on Obi-Wan is one of the only things he managed to hold on to through his years of insanity, and once he's healed, the plot of the episode is driven by his attempts at taking revenge for his suffering. It's downplayed, but it's implied that Savage wants revenge against Ventress for his previous mistreatment (his tone as he tells Maul who she is definitely implies some bad blood), and Maul taunts Obi-Wan by implying that he, too, wants revenge, in this case for Maul's killing of Qui-Gon.
* CliffHanger: The episode ends with Obi-Wan and Ventress barely escaping in the cockpit/escape ship. Savage wants to go after them, fearing that the Jedi will know too much if they inform them, but Maul dismisses his concerns, counting on the Jedi to come after the two of them.
* CurbStompBattle: Savage effortlessly defeats Obi-Wan in their brief duel. Of course it helps that Obi-Wan is distracted by Maul's presence, and he didn't expect Savage to be there either.
* EnemyMine: Obi-Wan and Ventress team up against Maul and Savage. Bonus points since Maul has taken Obi-Wan's lightsaber from him, so Ventress lends Obi-Wan one of hers.
-->'''Ventress:''' I want that back.\\
'''Obi-Wan:''' That's fine. Red's not my color.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Maul's trap for Obi-Wan on Raydonia fully establishes his new characterisation; unlike the blunt instrument of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', Maul is now his own agent, and demonstrates the brutality (slaughtering a village full of innocent people) and cunning (using the village as bait and having Savage be ready to ambush Obi-Wan) that defines his appearances from this point on.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Maul comments to Savage that they will "start" with revenge, hinting at the larger goals he starts working towards in later episodes.
* GenreBlindness: Obi-Wan insists on going alone to Raydonia, where Maul waits for him, because he fears if he goes there with a Jedi strike team, Maul will slaughter all the villagers. Maul and Savage of course slaughter them before he arrives anyway.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Only the lead-up and aftermath of Maul and Savage's rampage on Raydonia is seen. Maul's message to the Jedi Council, which has him behead a group of hostages, also noticeably cuts away from the actual violence, only showing Maul swinging his blade and the bodies falling to the ground (some of them [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence still twitching]]).
* HesBack: Maul finally regains his sanity, and is dead set on getting revenge on Obi-Wan.
* IShallTauntYou:
-->'''Maul:''' Your master, Qui-Gon Jinn; I ''gutted'' him, while you stood helpless and watched! How did that make you ''feel'', Obi-Wan?
* LargeHam: Maul is really ChewingTheScenery during his speech about his hatred towards Obi-Wan.
* MythologyGag: Maul's second set of legs are based on his appearance from the ''Old Wounds'' comic.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Savage and Maul beat up Obi-Wan really badly.
* ThePowerOfHate: How did Maul survive his bisection at Naboo? His hatred for Obi-Wan fuelled him to stay alive.
* {{Revenge}}: The episode's [[TitleDrop title]], CentralTheme, and Maul's driving force.
* RuleOfCool: A lightsaber battle between 3 former Sith and a Jedi, involving the Jedi [[EnemyMine teaming up with a Sith]] and ''everyone'' wielding red lightsabers? ''Awesome''.
* SatanicArchetype: As if Maul wasn't this based on his appearance normally, he reintroduces himself to Obi-Wan on Raydonia backlit by a burning building, and standing on a ''pile of corpses''.
* SiblingTeam: Maul and Savage.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Ventress and Obi-Wan.
* SpecialEditionTitle: The opening logo is red instead of yellow, for this and [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS4E21Brothers "Brothers"]].
* StaggeredZoom: When Maul runs out of the cave on Dathomir and screams to the sky, the camera jump-zooms out twice to emphasize his volume.
* TemptingFate: Obi Wan says that he will defeat Maul again just like last time -- right before Savage shows up to kick his ass. This is even lampshaded by Maul:
-->'''Maul:''' ''[chuckling darkly]'' Don't be so certain.
* TitleDrop: A conversation between Maul and Savage.
--> '''Maul''': I was apprenticed to the most powerful being in the galaxy once. I was destined to be... so much more. But I was robbed of that destiny by the Jedi. By ''Obi-Wan Kenobi''...\\
'''Savage''': Then you must have your revenge, my brother.\\
'''Maul''': Yes. We will start with revenge.
* ToThePain: Maul goes into some pretty horrifying detail about his planned revenge on Obi-Wan.
--> '''Maul''': I will make sure you stay awake long enough to feel every single cut. Your death will be ''beyond'' excruciating. ''You'' will suffer as ''I'' have suffered!
* WouldHurtAChild: The CallForward mentioned above heavily implies that the aforementioned children were the first victims of Maul and Savage's rampage.
