    Agreed. I would've liked for him to have more of a role in the series-or perhaps just not kill him off yet. It really seemed like a waste-just having Bane show up for a couple brief showdowns and stare-offs and that's it. He's gone. Dead, after all we'd seen from him before the days of the Empire. I mean, where was he all this time? What has he been up to? Dont just show him in like two scenes just to kill him...

    I’m clinging on to that blinking light as my ray of hope here, lol.

    I am someone who wants him dead as I am tired of people coming back. But even I think he’s alive at this point

    Yes, these constant resurrections are so boring and banal at that stage. My only reason for believing/hoping that he will not come back is that I don't see how they can come up with a better death scene. After all he was killed by a legend he himself helped create: his former protégée that happens to be the son of his former mentor. How can you realistically beat this? He is absolutely not suited for redemption nor has he another nemesis at that level (after that deaths of Obi-Wan and Anakin). Ahsoka has some history with him, true, but such a confrontation will still be less emotionally charged; plus Bane's battles with the Jedi are better suited for animation format (the flying boots will look ridiculous in live action). Maybe Omega can play this role, especially if Bane manages to get his revenge on Boba. I am not counting Hunter since, even if he is alive, he will be ancient and barely able to move by that time.

    I think the blinking light was there in case they decide to bring him back. But for now. i think the intention is that Boba killed him. Like they probably wanted back in Clone Wars.

    I think he's dead, but fully expect to see him again in Bad Batch or even one of the other love action series set earlier. I still think we'll see the Fett and Bane duel from the Clone Wars unfinished arc at some point too.

    "Love action"? I've been gone a week and Star Wars has gone in a completely different direction...

    Cad Bane's lived longer then most characters in the Galaxy, only few like Dooku and Palpatine surpass him in that area.

    Star Wars is all about redemption.

    But not all characters get redeemed like Palpatine, Maul and Jabba. Cad Bane is such character. He would kill children if the pay was good.

    I agree that he is not suited for redemption, but he still had some semblance of a twisted honor code. For instance, as a matter of principle, he didn't allow Moralo Eval to murder the disguised Obi-Wan (as Rako Hardeen) by changing the announced rules of the survivor game.

    A near naked Boba Fett can survive getting brutalized, electro spiked knuckled punched to the skull, bitten and back broken by a ovegrown wookie. Then same Wookie survives multiple stab wounds. Poor Cad got the crap end of the gaffi stick by the writers,lol.

    He’s also old. We can say whatever we like about alien biology but the opposite can be just as true we have no idea

    I wouldn’t say Maul was completely irredeemable. His perspective is warped by a lifetime of being under Palpatine’s tutelage but in the end he definitely seems genuine in his desire to see Palpatine defeated.

    “Is he the Chosen One?”

    “He is.”

    “He will avenge us.”

    In his dying moments I think he comes to recognize that Palpatine betrayed both him and the Jedi and he holds onto the hope that the Jedi Chosen One will defeat him. So I think he got a small measure of redemption in those final moments. As much as Maul is capable of it.

    Maul is not irredeemable, no one is, but if you try that it just won’t work. George wrote Qui-Gon to be the most likable in TPM and Maul killed him. And Maul killed Obi-Wan’s love interest when both were unarmed in cold blood. So while he does have human qualities like his love for Savage, it would be a very tough sell to the audience.

    Well, they did redeem Vader (killed hundreds of Jedi, including children and his teacher, cut his son's hand and delivered him to the Emperor, was part of group that supported blowing up Alderaan) and Kylo Ren (killed his father, tried to kill his uncle (he didn't know that he was fighting a force projection), tried to destroy his mother's organization, killed Lor San Tekka, an old family friend, and supported blowing up the Hosnian system). Maul is a modest villain compared with them (he had much less impressive murder count and he genuinely cared about his mother and his brother and even had a soft spot for old man Palpatine). However, he was not part of the privileged Skywalker bloodline and so drew the short straw:).
