    This past week i have been watching more and more of The Clone Wars, and i have found something interesting. In the Mortis Arc The Son says the same line as Darth Maul in his first episode (both played by Sam Witwer) and later on they say that the balance is shifted and the sith will rise, and after that Maul makes is re appearance. Could it be possible somehow that Maul and the Son are some how connected?

    Also in the arc Ahsoka is resurrected by the Daughters last act, Ashely Eckstein has stated "that Ahsoka really starts to mature and form her own opinnon of things after that arc" (RebelForceRadio Interview 2013) Could this mean that part of the Daughter is within Ahsoka? and if so what about Maul and The Son?

    This is just something that i have been thinking about any thoughts or ideas?

    Maul and The Son are not connected, just because they say the same line doesn't mean they are not connected, it's the writers that wanted them to say the same thing,

    @JevanShevu Just out of curiosity, what was the same quote?

    Wasn't this same topic talked about before a few times? I think the theory was that when the son died, he took over Maul's body and that when the daughter died, she took over Ahsoka's body, etc. I think the main argument in those other threads was the time issue...maul has been around since at least 10 years prior to our heroes meeting the son.

    Plus the TCW crew had stated somewhere about it being a nod to Witwer playing both roles and that it was nothing else...

    However, I do think Mortis had a profound effect on Ahsoka - probably for many reasons, but the most popular one right now is concerning her future self warning her not to remain Anakin's apprentice.

    I was really annoyed at the son using red lightning. I honestly wanted that to be Maul's thing since many years ago, after watching TPM, that if Maul used sith lightning it would be red in color.

    At this point, I'm not holding my breathe for anything Mortis related to be brought up again or expanded upon. They said we would be getting more episodes like Mortis back after S3. I figured they would have been working busy animating S4 at that time and possibly writing for S5. With the coming and going of S5, there still hasn't been anything Mortis related or even Mortis-like.

    Filoni made mention in the IGN interview of how the kids that were 10 when the show started are now 15 and they felt like they had to do something major this season (Ahsoka leaving) to up the stakes and make it feel like there would be some kind of payoff to sticking to the show. Even if Mortis or anything related to it is brought up again, it would be S6 at the soonest and 3 years later. With such a time gap I don't think it's ever going to come up again.

    I think Hardcase is actually Han Solo's dad as he prefers a straight up fight to all this sneaking around.


    It's not as if lines from the saga and the show are repeated by different characters constantly. In fact, go ahead and try to find an episode without a dialogue reference to the films.

    As much as it hurts me to say it - were they perhaps referring to "A Sunny Day in the Void". They did spend every precious moment in interviews telling us how experimental it was - and that was how Mortis was touted prior to it's release, as this really out there look at the Prophecy and the nature of the Force.
