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, planet Dathomir, where Mother Talzin, the Nightsister shaman-witch, might help him recover...
recover. Savage and Maul, pursue Obi-Wan Kenobi in search of revenge, and the Jedi Knight finds himself forced to unite with a surprising ally to defend against the deadly siblings.

* 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/[[CurbStompCushion Curb Stomp Cushion]]: 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. Then Maul easily smacks Obi-Wan around some more when they are fighting one-on-one though this was after Maul and Savage roughed Obi-Wan up and Maul was taunting Obi-Wan about Qui-Gon's death which enraged Obi-wan and made him sloppy with his mind clouded by anger.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Maul threw his murder of Qui-Gon in Obi-Wan's face just to provoke him.


* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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]]).
