Recap / Star Wars: The Clone Wars S5E14 "Eminence"

One vision can have many interpretations.

Maul and Savage conquer Death Watch, the Black Sun, the Pyke Syndicate, and the Hutts in order to rule the criminal underworld of the galaxy.

This episode provide examples of:

  • Creator Cameo: Dave Filoni, the show's supervising director, voices one of the Black Sun Council members who gets beheaded by Savage Opress for refusing to co-operate with Darth Maul.
  • Dispense with the Pleasantries: In a universe where everyone from Luke Skywalker to Palpatine himself refer to Jabba as "Mighty Jabba" or "Your Excellency", Maul and Savage pretty much break protocol and make sure to let Jabba know that if he doesn't join, he dies. And they succeed.
  • Off with His Head!: The Black Sun Council by Savage Opress when they refuse to help Maul.
  • Villain Team-Up: Darth Maul and Savage Opress work alongside Death Watch for their plans on Mandalore.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The bounty hunters hired by the Hutts flee when Maul, Savage and the Mandalorians prove too much for them. Maul lets them go on the grounds that, as bounty hunters, they have no allegiance.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Two examples in this episode, both involving Darth Maul.
    • Darth Maul chokes Bo-Katan (but doesn't kill her) to make a point about doubt leading to failure.
    • Darth Maul nearly kills Sugi on Nal Hutta with both his lightsaber and hand-hand combat.
