no, it was just a bad episode. It was a pass ....there is a four parter coming up and this was an obvious filler episode.
Maul returns??!???!WTF!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Okay then the Emperor survived as well somehow. Booooooooooooooo!!!! Okay, The clone wars series can´t be taken serios from me anymore.
Well, according to Dark Horse comics, the emperor DID survive, in the Dark Empire series. He transferred his mind to a clone of himself.
Well, if the saber cauterized the cut, and they found the top half and cyborged him, then I guess he could have survived.
Did they ever explain why he didn't transfer his mind into a clone of someone a little less... aesthetically challenged?
I mean, if you're going to be the most powerful man in the universe, there have got to be some self indulgent perks. It can't ALL be about more power and destroy this or that all the time.
I'd like to buy the first three seasons. I have "The Clone Wars" DVD. It's the CG episode where Asoka and the entire story is introduced. Just looking to get everything else, but don't know where to look.
