    Eminence

    +Evocative opening reminiscent of Alien
    +Maul opening his eyes at the touch of the light and closing them again as the light went away
    +Bo-Katan
    +Maul recognizing the Vizsla clan symbol
    +Villains playing each other off
    +Zanbar looks interesting
    +Black Sun
    +Savage's decapitations
    +Sound of heads rolling on the floor was dark
    +Spice traders were cool despite their bread appearance
    +Hutts not speaking Basic
    +Nice bounty hunter battle
    +"So the only thing you can tell me is that Jabba can be found at Jabba's Palace?"; Loved Maul in that sequence
    +Jabba's palace sequence
    +The music was phenomenal
    +Animation/lighting brilliant as always
    +Sound design

    -Lion roar?
    -Pacing was a bit fast in some places

    Overall, a 9/10. Brilliant and dark episode that makes me even more excited for what is to come. I despised the idea of Maul coming back, but I can't argue with these results. This is what this show is capable of and more.

    7/10. A good start to a decent trilogy. I don't really count Revival as part of this arc, because absolutely nothing worthwhile happened in that dreck.

    9/10. Good to have Maul and Savage back as well as Death Watch. Got to see Bo-Katan with her helmet off! And traveling around the galaxy, taking over Black Sun and the Hutts was fun. As was that Bounty Hunters vs. Team Maul fight.
