    Alright, I guess I need to watch the trailer again...

    *watches trailer*

    Well damn it, that's not the same trailer they showed after Brothers. Now I done-gone spoiled myself even more. :(

    Okay... If there's no explanation for Darth Maul's horns changing like that I'm going to be pissed. I'm already pissed that they only made Savage monster-size in one episode and then shrank him down to the same size as everybody else. This is getting ridiculous now.

    This HAS to have something to do with Mother Talzin.

    They will eventually show his appearance change in the episode.

    But they didn't shrank him back.

    I agree.

    Most of the preview clips on starwars.com seem to be taken from the first couple minutes of the episode. Which kind of makes me pessimistic about getting an explanation, since if they follow that pattern, then have only a couple minutes to establish Obi-Wan getting drawn out to this planet, and are they going to cram how Maul switched his legs in that first 60-120 seconds of the episode?

    Why his horns change isn't that important. It can be deduced that he whittles them down. In some of the pictures of Maul you can see the flat surfaces where chips of bone would have been cut away. As to his legs, that should be explained. But part of me fears that it will be just a throw away line in the opening reel that says that Talzin did it or something.

    Look how big he is compared to Ventress when he first stands up after his transformation in Monster. Then, look how big he is compared to Ventress in Witches of the Mist, the very next episode. He went from being huge to being the same size as everyone else.

    Regarding Maul's horns-

    Compare:

    The surface of his horns are made of the same series of flat surfaces that a skinned apple has when you cut through it again and again. Or that a stone tool has when you sharpen a rock by striking it with another rock so that shards of it break off. Savage's horns don't have this texture. I think that it's safe to say that he has cut off the bulk of his horns after Brothers

    I thought his horns looked cool in Brothers, if they're changed without saying why that's lame. Not the how, but the why.

    Well, I figure it's no different than if you watch a movie like Jumangi and Robin Williams' character grows his hair out because he's been living out in the jungle for years, and then the first thing he does when he gets out of the game is shave and cut his hair. Only Maul doesn't have hair. But he just didn't groom himself because he's wallowing in insanity for 10 years.

    I suppose that's fair enough. They worked nicely as a physical manifestation of how twisted the character has become though.

    Yeah, that's Kenobi's lightsabre, and no it's not a flashback, because Kenobi's sabre in TPM was a totally different model. Unless TCW screwed that up, which is not entirely impossible. :p

    Maul kills Obi-Wan and steals his identity. If it wasn't for Maul, Anakin would've never had to wear the suit. Hence him knowing about the "high ground." It is actually Maul who trains Luke and helps him become a Jedi. MIND BLOWN.

    It all makes sense now!

    I really, really hope Filoni and the crew make this final episode at least bearable. This weekend has been the ultimate disappointment for me. Brothers was the hugest pile of crap we've seen from TCW for a long time. And then we get to the real heartbreaker of [hl=black]Mass Effect 3's ending. I'm literally so crestfallen right now after that. I don't know which, of the two, was worse. And I don't mean it was heartbreaking like, it was so sad that everyone died and I watched Liara pass away in my arms. I mean it was bad. And believe me, I know when something's bad. Humble, I'd hold off on buying ME3 for a good while if I were you.[/hl]

    EDIT: Put ME3 stuff in black spoiler tags for those who haven't gotten to the ending. Enjoy the ride while it lasts guys, because when you see what your final destination is, you will want to get straight back on that bus.

    I'm the minority but I really likes ME 3's ending. Plus you must admit watching Joker crash the Normandy into Harbringer was awesome!

    Fortune cookie could only mean one thing, Ventress will come to Obi-Wan's aid, but will die for it.

    There will be an explanation of why he looks different. He's nearly a skeleton in Brothers who has lived in a trash pit for over a decade.

    Clearly, Savage takes Maul to Mother Talzin who somehow conjures new legs and restores him to sanity and health. It will all be explained.

    Yeah I'm also thinking this will be the end of the road for Ventress.

    I doubt they would kill off Ventress after all this character development.

    NO. VENTRESS DOESN'T DIE IN THIS EPISODE, IT CAN'T BE ALLOWED. THIS IS HIGH CANON TREASON!
    *goes Kenth Hamner crazy*

    Ventress' story ends on Boz Pity.
