The Good: Great art, lots of dark side versus dark side action, a solid conclusion for the Shadow Collective and Mother Talzin, and a great show of Sidious’ presentation as a master manipulator and planner
The Bad: Darth Maul and the Mandarloians’ story ends on a head scratching cliffhanger, Dooku and Grievous continually being played as incompetent morons, and the Jedi show up in a plot they really have no business being included in
The Ugly: Dathomirian possession. What’s up with the Dathomir witches’ magicks, anyways?
Overall Verdict: A solid but slightly rushed conclusion to Darth Maul and Mother Talzin’s involvement in the Clone Wars that only leaves one major question unresolved: the fate of Maul and his Mandalorians.
