The thrilling third part of the Darth Maul story arc is upon us this weekend with the sixteenth episode of the Clone Wars' fifth season, Lawless. After killing Pre Vizsla in the previous episode, Darth Maul has now taken control of Mandalore with Death Watch under his command. With the Duchess Satine as his captive he lures Obi-Wan Kenobi to the planet and plans to finally enact his revenge. But will a band of Rebel Death Watch members, led by Bo-Katan, and another Dark Lord of the Sith foil his plans? Check out the full episode guide on StarWars.com here.

Official Synopsis: With Duchess Satine as bait, the vengeful Darth Maul lures Obi-Wan into a trap. Drunk with power, Maul declares himself the true Sith Lord, a claim that will not go unanswered in “The Lawless”...
-This episode marks the first appearance of Darth Sidious “in the flesh.” In all other appearances, he has been a hologram.
-Obi-Wan Kenobi is wearing his Rako Hardeen disguise (from Season Four’s “Deception” arc) when he arrives on Mandalore.
-The much battered Twilight now sports a cartoonish illustration of Anakin as a boy Podracer pilot, with Aurebesh text that says “WIZARD!!!” The Twilight has not been seen since Season Two’s “Children of the Force.”
