That's the impression I got too. Maul doesn't seem the type to beg or plead under any circumstances, it definitely seemed like he was buying time so he could make another move.

Oh! When Palpatine told Maul that he is "no longer my apprentice" and that he had "found another", I'm guessing that was a reference to Anakin, right? I rambled through my brain-index quickly to try and think of who it might be. Unless there is some other character they haven't introduced yet (which would be cool!) I can only think he's talking about Anakin.
