How is there not a topic for this series yet!? It's so awesome!
–- Update From New Post Merge ---
This week's episode and this entire story arc have been amazing @_@
I'm really interested in what will happen with Darth Maul in the future. Having Darth Sidious show up in person was really cool. The lightsaber fight was amazing. I loved Maul using the black saber.
Though I wasn't particularly attached to Satine it was sad to see her die with how much she means to Obi-Wan.
The brothers Maul and Savage always seemed so menacing. Having one of the duo killed and the other cower in fear of Sidious really shows the depth of his power and manipulation. Even though Maul begged for mercy, as is typical of the Sith, I feel like his plotting against Palpatine isn't over yet.
I suppose we'll have to wait until season 6 to see the fallout of this story arc. Next week starts the 4 episode Ahsoka-centered arc. It seems there were at least 3 episodes in the Clovis arc as well. I do wonder then, what happened to the 4 episodes that were bumped from season 5 to make room for the Young Jedi arc. I'm not complaining since I loved Young Jedi, but I guess we'll end this year on the Clovis arc? Or could they just extend the season to 26 episodes?
We know that as of September 2011 they had already written through the end of season 6. I just watched the Kadavo / Zygeria commentary on the bluray. In it Dave Filoni mentions desert armor for the Wolf Pack that will appear in some season in the future.
I really get the sense the show will continue at least until season 7. We know officially it'll be at least 6 seasons. I could see it going even longer...8 seasons maybe?
With how awesome the show has become, I'd love to see it keep going for as long as Dave Filoni is willing to keep working on the show.
