Personally, I liked it. This arc was very cool. A true show of Sith brutallity was when Maul killed Satine and Sidious shocked Maul until the credits. It was a great way to leave the arc hanging like that. Bo-Katan is a well-developed character and a true show of Mandalorian bravery.

But who was that Mandalorian with the spike helmet? It couldn't have been Maul because they were both in the same room at different times.

I don't know but me and my kids had our mouths hanging open during the whole episode. Probably the best we've seen and we've been watching since the beginning. Sidious was AWESOME

Old Palpi is strong!!!! Easily the best fight scene of the season so far.

sidious is so strong he held off maul AND savage and all his brute strength with one hand using jar'kai. I was like whaaaaaat?

I'm pissed savage died tho, i felt he was just brought in to make the maul story better. Waste of a good character.

Maul was surprisingly close to beating sidious though. I def think he can beat dooku now. Think about it, dooku couldn't defeat yoda, and yoda couldn't defeat sidious, yet maul came VERY close. A dooku vs maul fight NEEDS to happen

Rexas - Juggernaut, Predatus - Marauder, Malitus - Assassin

Dooku would have to win though. Unless Disney decides to remake episode 3 according to the Clone Wars

Bo Katan was, yet again, friggin awesome. I really start to love that character, even though it seems she is willing to hand over Mandalore to the Republic, so I´am intrigued how that is all playing out in the end.
Finally Satine is dead. I have nothing against people who are pacifist, but this woman was so naive...
Sidious ülayed his role as I was expecting. No surpirses there and Savage is also finally gone. Sadly Maul is still alive.

Overall, the whole episode feeled rushed again. The should have scrapped the other story arcs of the season to improve the dialogues, the pacing of the story and the emomtional development of the characters more.
But it still is a kids show and we can´t expect mature story telling.

I donno ... they executed satine and made obiwan watch ... fairly dark for a kid's show ... then sidious killed savage while maul watched ... and sidious smiled in glee. I thought the tenor of the episode was great. A lot happened. I went back and watched it again and I never do that

loved this episode, lots of action, bit of comedy satines death was a shame but i hope bo katan survives and replace her. there were more followers of bo katan then i thought there were but i suposse it was needed, and the sidous maul and savage fight was amazing

Hells no. Sidious wiped the floor with them. His was tossing Maul around like a ragdoll and the only time Maul even had a chance of giving some account of himself was when they were using lightsabers.
Peace is a lie. There is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken.

I'm sad that Savage died, I thought he was a character with a lot of potential, a shame really.

Also I was surpised at the Dutchess's death, looks like they wanted to get rid of a couple of characters to avoid an "overpopulation".

Still, kickass Palpy is kickass.
