I agree Sidious plans to confront Anakin with Maul, but The Chosen One is stronger.
Other discovery about bionic parts: Maul didnīt die because his bionic limbs donīt produce a short circuit which compromises his lungs.

About the magic armour of Opress, he ended in a simple short, even without his boots

there is another clue: Night Sisters, witches and Talzin can create material items from black magic (the green aura),
in some way it is a blink to sith alchemy. In EU there are sith mutants, beasts, transformed also by spells.

While Dark Side vs Light side of the Force was a duel of Ki or Chi, Sith vs Night sisters is a duel of magic.

Some fiction Universes keep the magic characters interacting with main characters (example: Shazam, Black Adam in DC)

Returning to Palpatineīs plot, he should confront Maul and other Sith assassins against the night sisters, as magic is posing an active opposition to dark side hegemony.

The duel Sidious vs devil brothres was ok and gave relief to the audeince when killing Opress

I agree with a previous coment, it si possible maul further face Dooku, even Grievous, lol  :D ;D
But someone must kill Maul. Anakin in rage, Obi Wan in justice or Yoda as preventing Sith to reassemble in the near future.

About Satine, her murder only showed Maul more crazy than ruthless.... itīs a pity Maul hates cutties.

Remember a bit when Jabba kills Oola, but the Hutt was in lust t this moment

For Filoni... he lost a lot killing Satine

I can undesrtand his plot and commercial purposes but

Satine in love with Obi Wan, would have been positif as most powerful Jedis have married Kento Malek, Anakin, Luke in expanded universe.

So many seasons with Satine and what a waste Obi Wan didnīt kiss her in the cell when she hugged him or as a farewell

I think it wouldnīt have express weakness in Jedi, as Sith are identified with Hate and Jedi  with Love.

Jedi without belongings, but who was watching? So Obi said: "ok I am 36-37 and canīt kiss a girl because it is not politically correct as I am a Jedi Master"

Justice is up to Kenobi, indeed Jedi feel the need of vengeance too, but it is a war.

In conclusion to definetely kill Maul a Jedi must behead him or then slice him in two, this time not horizontally, but vertically
like when the Cid, Rodrigo Díaz de Vívar did with a Sarracen enemy.

Nice episode "Shadows of reason"

Funny to watch  ;D

Maul ambition is growing bigger as he is an improvised tyrant for Mandalore

About Pre Vizla death, it makes Death Watcha looks headless, alienated to a different band (sith, dathomir, renegade warriors)

Only one flaw in the combat between these dudes: Maul could be more kung fu proficient, but it is not credible he kick pushed
so powerfully Vizla in the air, while he was high flying and at full speed of his jet pack.

For the upcoming battle among Sidious and the horned brothers,
I can say one of these devils would die, if not both; perhaps Savage Opress
will get stabbed many times by Palpatine.

As Maul returned to life, however in the end of Episode I, Windu said they made an analysis of his heart... and why they didnīt incinerate the body, where it was buried or preserved?

Palpatine can collect the Maul and Savage bodies to clone and manipulate them, as Force Unleashed proposed this use of
Starkiller Galen Malek.

Maul is building a team based on fear, Vizla doubts of his project in the end of this chapter.

Action was ok, but showed with haste (sometimes fights were naïves, like kung fu operas)

when Black Sun and Jabba are free from menace they turn in Maulīs favor. (the gangs alliance looks questionable)

Seems for credibility, Mandalores must left garrisons in both places (a detail missing in the episode)

Hope if they use Dengar again, they wonīt show him as a runner. Always that guys in turbant vendage seemes mysteryous.

Agree, more action than expected
as the droids become acrobats and fighters

Gascon looks a bit like boss nass
but with a more serious voice.
He could be of some use for further episodes
but as a supporting character.

Funny Walrus Man on Missing in Action   ;)
they need to include Hammer head, greedo (vintage versions too)

This chapter explores poverty, as they tried to depict an undevelopped planet.

Coackroaches, flies, trash gave the ambience of crisis to that galaxy far away,
and so it brought the internal crisis of Gregor...
He wanted a new life (a dream)
It is a blink to "Complaint of the Homeless" by Allen Ginsberg.

The Vietnam vet who returns America to wipe carsī windshields.

Hondo vs Grievous

Hondo is a more complex character than Grievous, whose lines are the plainest of the galaxy far far away.

Grievous is always depicted overacted, and with an uncontrolled fury in almost silent videos.

General Grievous is the representation of violence without intelligence. Filoni needs urgently to make him kinda
a Bane from DC Batman, that is a subtle villain.

Today the cyborg and Ashoka watered down in their fight, specially the padawan who looked weary.

Returning to Hondo, he is better balanced, seems inspired in Sir John Falstaff from Shakespeare plays;
sometimes funny with wit, others with the lust of flirting. His new attire and wardrobe let him get that evolution.

Filoni should drive more attention on Hondo, and why not? profit from his lizard monkey too. So Filoni, give the pet a name, search a Greek, macedonian, arabic name which fits the series.

About weequays

complex drawing, two colour faces with cartilage and flesh, muscular pirate was like Pote Snitkin.

Hey guys, what about Mara Jade character?

Do you think Shanon Mc Randle needs to appear on episode VII?

Today I finished "About the Sublime" by Casio Longinus
an aesthetian whose book continues in certain way
"Ars Poetica" by Quinto Horatius Flacus.

Longinus is strongly inspired by Demostenes and Plato.

This was an episode more for kids, the fight of Ashoka and Hondo was naif: too many jumps and very few techniques.

The engenneer professor droid looked curious, a brand new animation, that could have a reminicense to Dexterīs bar on Coruscant.

But deep inside the naivité of the episode is a bit of darkness when the human youngling killed one weequay by short circuit of the light saber.

The robot told it was due the circumstances, but at last, even younglings could be forced to kill.

I think as animation got haste at the end of the episode, to end a fight or close the emission, the pirates were bouncing on the walls, the corridors like puppets or plastiline figures who never arrived to break apart.

This need revision, 3d animation is not perfect yet, better they simplify some scenes, instead of lots of marionettes they couldnīt handle properly.

Casting the original actors Mark, Carrie and Harrison would be a nice hommage to us the original SW generation of fans.
We the X Generation deserve that

I am just watching "Tipping points"

What I can first comment is that

I liked the pterodactils, flying saurious....
they are beasts more colored than ever
but their wings look a cross between buterflies' and bats.

The paintjob on body and wings gave those dragons distinction.

The huge burden saurious in the market, the one which crashes two battle droids
is like a large dewback, nice try this time on purple.

The rest is kinda cartoon style, lots of details are improving now
but designers must focus on the heads of humans to insuflate
more realism. Some angles of Steela head are chooked.
