Sith brothers, Death Watch unite to take down Kenobi on Clone Wars

Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Television

Now that the adventures of Col. Gascon and his Droid Squad are behind us on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it’s time to get back to the business of a resurgent Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress. They want revenge against Obi-Wan Kenobi — and so does Death Watch, a faction of Mandalorians who have tangled with the Jedi before.

After barely escaping their encounter with the Jedi at the beginning of the season, Savage and Maul are found by Death Watch. Both parties forge an alliance when they realize they have a common enemy in the Jedi general, Obi-Wan Kenobi, in “Eminence,” airing this Saturday, January 19th at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network.

This episode has some serious guest-star power: Producer and director Jon Favreau is back as the voice of Pre Vizsla, leader of Death Watch, with Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck, Katee Sackhoff, returning as his trusted lieutenant Bo-Katan. And of course Sam Witwer (Being Human) and Clancy Brown (Highlander) return as demonic duo Darth Maul and Savage Opress.
