Darth Maul Returns

Last season's "Nightsisters" arc teased it, but now it's been confirmed: Darth Maul, the bisected Sith Lord from The Phantom Menace, will return in The Clone Wars next spring. While there's no official word on how or why the tattooed menace, who was sliced and diced by Obi-Wan Kenobi at the end of the film, returns from the dead, Dave Filoni did refer to Palpatine's famous line from Revenge of the Sith:
“The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be…unnatural.”
I, for one, am very interested to see how this plays out, and am crossing my fingers that it's well executed (not to mention for another showdown between Obi-Wan and Maul). If done right, this could very well be one of the most powerful and popular storylines of TCW yet. Hop on over to Entertainment Weekly and USAToday for more pictures and a video.
