[S7E10] Master Plan ((EXCLUSIVE))
In the Undercity of Sundari, Ahsoka Tano is surrounded by Mandalorian super commandos as Maul steps from the shadows. He knows her name, although it is not familiar to him. Ahsoka says she knows him, and Maul chuckles, saying he is sure they have several "mutual friends." Ahsoka activates a beacon on her gauntlet, alerting Rex and his squad to her location, and they enter the tunnels to trace her signal. Maul continues, telling Ahsoka that he was certain Obi-Wan Kenobi would have been the one to search for him, perhaps with his "loyal foal," Anakin Skywalker, but Ahsoka states that Kenobi had a more important engagement, leading Maul to wonder if "the moment" is upon them. Maul ponders why Kenobi sent Ahsoka, and she suggests he surrender so they can ask him. Maul says his surrender would be pointless, as he believes the Jedi and the Republic will soon no longer be the controlling interests in the galaxy soon. When Ahsoka asks if he will be the one to replace them, Maul fearfully replies that he won't but his master Darth Sidious is along with his new evil Empire.
[S7E10] Master Plan
In the throne room of the Sundari Royal Palace, Bo-Katan Kryze, Ahsoka and Rex brief Obi-Wan via hologram. Bo-Katan says there are some small firefights in Sector 11, but the clones have proven effective; however, they need to capture Maul quickly before he can unravel their victory and escape. Ahsoka tells them that Maul mentioned a name: Darth Sidious. Bo-Katan inquires as to who that is. After telling them that he doesn't know much Obi-Wan agrees to reveal the suspicions of the Jedi Council to them, Master Kenobi explains that Darth Sidious is the Sith Lord who orchestrated the Clone Wars and has played both sides from the beginning. He says that he first learned the name from Count Dooku, but Obi-Wan informs them that any chance of learning more about Sidious from Dooku has been lost, and when Tano asks why Obi-Wan tells her it was because Count Dooku is dead since Anakin killed him while rescuing the Chancellor. Tano is briefly shocked at the news of how her old master finally defeated his nemesis. However, he suggests if they can capture Maul, he may be able to reveal the missing pieces to the puzzle, namely Sidious' secret identity, to the Jedi Council.
Elsewhere in the tunnels, Jesse tells Maul and his Mandalorian warriors, including Gar Saxon and Rook Kast, that they are wasting their time because he won't tell them anything. Maul is amused that he believes this statement to be true. Maul remarks that clones are bred for combat and tells him that they are part of a greater plan, which he admits he was not made aware of. Maul says that he played his part and was cast aside and forgotten, but that he survived and can thrive in the chaos to come.
In the prison, Lady Bo-Katan, Ahsoka, and Commander Rex meet with the captive Almec in his cell. Almec is flattered that they took the time to see him. Bo-Katan demands to know Maul's escape plan. Almec tells them that Maul is not trying to escape because he sees no point in doing so. When Bo-Katan asks if Maul believes he can defeat them, Almec explains that Maul has been consumed by a strange sense of dread for the past several weeks.
Tano says that she will help him on the condition that he answers one question. Maul says that she only has to ask it. Ahsoka asks what he wants with Anakin Skywalker. Maul says that Skywalker is the key to everything. When Tano asks if it is to bring balance to the Force, Maul replies that Skywalker is the key to destroy and that he has long been groomed for his role as his master's new apprentice.
Back when Star Wars: The Clone Wars was on the air, a story arc entitled "The Siege of Mandalore" set on the planet Mandalore was written by head writer Matt Michnovetz to serve as the show's series finale. According to Supervising Director Dave Filoni, the story arc revolved around the possibility that Ahsoka Tano would rejoin the Jedi Order following her departure in the season five finale "The Wrong Jedi" and a fight between her and Maul. The episodes were not finished before the series was cancelled in 2013 by The Walt Disney Company.
At San Diego Comic-Con in July 19, 2018, the Siege of Mandalore arc was announced by Lucasfilm Ltd. to be part of a twelve-episode revival of The Clone Wars. To not conflict with their plans for the revival, Lucasfilm previously asked Johnston to not include action scenes during the Siege depiction in her novel. A completed version of the story arc aired as part of The Clone Wars revival on April 24, 2020 on Disney+, Disney's streaming service.
Gothel played the long con with Drizella, and it was great. If you watch Once Upon a Time online, you will already know that Drizella thought she was the puppet master, so seeing the reaction on her face when Anastasia stole her powers was everything and then some.
They've both appeared as one-dimensional characters, and there seems to be minimal scope for improvement. Henry is smart, but I thought he would have had a better plan before he was poisoned in the other realm.
Jay's mother asks the Past Master of Ice if she is seeing things, asking if they are the same people they just beat, with the Ice master saying they are. Krux explains they are indeed, and that they stopped them once today, but it was before they had a legion of Vermillion, courtesy of the Great Devourer. As the master of Lightning complains that she thought she was finally able to go on her honeymoon with Cliff Gordon, young Wu tells the group to focus. Acronix then tells Machia that "it is time," with Machia ordering the Vermillion warriors to battle as they emerge from the Iron Doom. The Masters start to fight the Vermillion, but they are unaware of how to truly defeat them as they continuously reform back together.
In the present, Kai and Nya drop out of a time vortex with the Reversal Time Blade in the Vermillion Swamps near the others. As Ray says he cannot hold on much longer, Maya expresses her griefs before Kai uses the Reversal Time Blade on his father, curing him of the time punch. As everyone celebrates, Cole questions where Master Wu was. Kai then realizes that he stayed behind on the Iron Doom to deal with Krux and Acronix, with Nya saying he was now gone. As Cole expresses his sorrow in having no master, Jay steps up, saying that Lloyd is now their master. Before Lloyd questions this, Kai calls him "Master Lloyd" and presents him with the Reversal Time Blade as everyone looks at him. As Lloyd accepts his new title and takes the Reversal Time Blade, he tells everyone that they must discard the Blade, saying it holds too much power and that they will not rest until they know where Master Wu is.
Starlight explains the situation to Twilight and says she plans to confront the princesses directly about her lack of communication. Twilight warns Starlight, however, that the last time the sisters fought, Luna turned into Nightmare Moon and Celestia had to banish her for a thousand years.

That concept is important for any foodie or food fan watching at home. For a new dish, following a recipe step-by-step is important. Recipes have instructions for a reason. Once you master a dish, then you can experiment away from the recipe.
With Dooku dead, Ahsoka requests for help to capture Maul and learn more about Sidious through him, but Obi-Wan has his hands full with hunting Grievous on Utapau, and Anakin has been ordered by the Jedi Council to spy on the Chancellor. Obi-Wan asks if Ahsoka can speak to her former master, but they're cut short by an attack on the lower levels.
When the Atreans discover that the core of their homeworld, Atrea IV, is cooling, posing a significant threat to the continued habitability of the planet, the USS Enterprise-D is dispatched to find a solution. Dr. Pran Tainer, an Atrean geologist, and his wife, Dr. Juliana Tainer, come on board to assist the Enterprise crew in this task.
After briefing the senior officers on the nature of the problem and revealing that the planet will become uninhabitable in 13 months, Geordi La Forge and Data suggest employing ferro-plasmic infusion to reliquify the planet's core, using the Enterprise's phasers to drill through the surface and setting up plasma infusion units. Data believes that if the procedure is successful, the core will remain molten for centuries. After Captain Picard and Pran approve this plan, they, along with most of the other officers leave the observation lounge, leaving Data alone with Juliana Tainer. Juliana asks Data if he remembers her. When he says he does not, she reveals she was Dr. Noonian Soong's wife, and involved in Data's construction, therefore making her essentially Data's mother.
Data joins La Forge in engineering, and proceeds with verifying what Juliana told him. Reading the information at the master systems display table, Data finds records that show Soong and Juliana spent four days on Mavala IV, but there is no accompanying proof of marriage. Data notes to La Forge that the Registrar's Office could not confirm the wedding, as many of the documents were lost when the planet's government was overthrown. La Forge suggests that Data is looking for a lie, but Data protests that he merely can't figure out why Soong would never have mentioned his wife. Aware of the fact that Juliana left Dr. Soong, La Forge wonders if maybe Soong had his heart broken and wasn't eager to discuss the experience. Together, he and Data surmise that there may be hidden memories inside Data's emotion chip about his mother, which Soong intended Data to access when he was ready.
Drilling continues on the surface of the planet, with Data, La Forge and Dr. Tainer once again working from engineering. Suddenly the ship rocks: feedback pulses are picking up along the particle beam. Dr. Tainer believes the phaser beam must have impacted a pocket of magnesite ore, and tries adjusting the phaser harmonics to compensate for the pulse. Riker calls down, saying that they will have to terminate the beam if the feedback keeps up. Data explains that if they do, they would have restart the process in another suitable location; Dr. Tainer states that there are no other locations and asks for only a few more seconds. La Forge starts to say that it will take her a lot longer than they have, but she unexpectedly finds the right frequency and the feedback ends. Dr. Tainer just attributes it to luck, but doesn't notice Data giving her a long, pondering look. The Tainers and Data beam down to the first magma pocket to set up the infusion unit. 041b061a72
