Oh, and that shot of the door opening and the battle unfolding in front of obi-wan was great.
Oh, definitely. It would be something along the lines of him sacrificing himself to save Obi-Wan and/or thwart Sidious.

Finally, the revelation that Bo-Katan was Satine's sister!!
So, does that mean Korky (Corky?) is Bo-Katan's son?

A lot of that had to do with Obi-wan's comment to Maul about it not being his choice to be evil and then Savage's parting words to Maul as he died. Like I said, I hated Maul coming back as it felt like just fanboy service, but Dave Filoni and company have shown they really know what they are doing!

He even said it himself that the Nightsisters didn't take him like they did Savage, he volunteered because he was just that evil. They should let him be evil and die on his own terms. No heroic nonsense.
As far as "cheapened," how'd you feel about Maul cowering and begging to Sidious at the end?

This is probably my favorite episode of the season (probably up there for series as well).
