Recap: Star Wars The Clone Wars S 5 E 15 Shades Of Reason


  • The Bad Guy Wins: It's an entire episode filled with these.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Pre Vizsla earns this trope in this episode. He betrays Darth Maul, but doesn't kill him (despite saying that he would) and sends him to prison instead, Maul breaks out, he has Bo-Katan give Maul his lightsaber back (ouch) to fight a fair fight, and ultimately gets his butt kicked by Maul.
  • Challenging the Chief: Maul planned on Vizsla's honor, and challenged him to see who's the most worthy one to lead Death Watch and Mandalore.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Pre Vizsla rivals Cad Bane in this regard: during his fight with Maul, Vizsla uses every weapon available to him: the Darksaber, blasters, flamethrowers, jetpacks, grenades, rope, and all manner of projectiles
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Beside the concluding fight, Savage Opress destroys the prison cell he and Maul are kept in with the Force by flexing his arms. He also effortlessly takes down three Death Watch members.
  • Darkest Hour
  • Downer Ending: Duchess Satine's government has fallen, Darth Maul kills Pre Vizsla, Bo-Katan is forced to retreat with some of her comrades who don't side with Darth Maul, and Darth Maul becomes the new ruler of Mandalore, with Prime Minister Almec reinstated as Prime Minister of Mandalore.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Bo-Katan refuses to side with Darth Maul after he kills Pre Vizsla, claiming she does not see an outsider as the ruler of Mandalore.
  • Killed Off for Real: Pre Vizsla.
  • Master Swordsman: Darth Maul, obviously, but Vizsla's prowess with the Darksaber is considerable.
  • Off with His Head!: Pre Vizsla.
  • Vertigo Effect: On Bo-Katan when she sees Darth Maul right before he executes Pre Vizla.
