"Revival" is the first episode of the fifth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It is the eighty-ninth episode of the series overall. It was screened on August 24, 2012 at Celebration VI, and released on September 29, 2012 on Cartoon Network.


Fueled by vengeance and rage, the newly reunited brothers Savage Opress and Maul spread terror and violence across the galaxy. As the Sith brothers forcibly recruit Hondo Ohnaka and his pirates, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Adi Gallia chase them down, leading to a deadly confrontation.



Maul and Savage's brief duel.

A mysterious power outage ensues the space station over Cybloc to ensue in total darkness, alerting the police droids. Police droid commander LD-112 leads three others droids into a warehouse, searching for clues. LD-112 asks for a report from SD-357, but there is no answer. LD-112 opens a door to go down a hallway, but sees a dark figure destroy 357. LD-112 hopelessly charges at the figure, Darth Maul, who uses the Force and destroys the droid while his brother, Savage Opress. attacks the other droids. The two search the warehouse and Opress finds a vault full of credits, but Maul explains his fortune as Kenobi's demise. Maul then explains they need to follow his vision, but Savage protests that they should not have dominance. Maul tells Savage about there being two, and that Savage was the apprentice. Offended, Savage duels with Maul, but Maul easily defeats Savage, and he accepts his position as an apprentice. The two then leave the station on a cargo ship with the credits.

Alerted by the robbery, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Adi Gallia are sent to investigate. They are greeted by Zutton, who explains how it were two Zabraks with red lightsabers who committed the robbery. Kenobi explained it was the Sith and they needed to find it. Zutton told him the droids heard about them going to the Sertar sector. Gallia inquired what was in the sector: Florrum. Maul and Savage's cargo ship arrived in front of the pirate Jiro's pirate saucer. Jiro and his pirates boarded the ship and search the valuables, but Maul and Savage confronted them, offering the pirates to join them in their quest for revenge. Jiro contacted some of his fellow pirates to see if they were interested in joining, and they accepted, but one wants to see what their leader, Hondo Ohnaka, would say. Maul contacted Hondo and told him of their betrayal, killing the pirate who wanted to see what Hondo would say as a penalty of resistance. Hondo warned Maul he is not the first laser sword wielding maniac he had to deal with.


Maul, Savage, Jiro, and the pirates overlook the skirmish.

When the Jedi arrived, Kenobi contacted Hondo about the brother's attack, and Hondo explained he will deal with his men as long as the Jedi deal the Zabraks. Maul's pirates engaged with Hondo as Maul and Savage landed. The Jedi soon landed and Gallia dueled with Savage while Maul took on Kenobi. After a time of dueling, Savage was able to get Gallia to loose her balance and rammed his horns into her, and Kenobi gave out a cry, and tried to kill Savage, but Maul saved him.

Hondo and his pirates confront Maul and Savage

Kenobi, Hondo, and Hondo's pirates retreated in the damaged base and prepared for an assault. Maul and Savage then chased Kenobi while Jiro and his pirates chased Hondo. Hondo's pirates readied the cannon, and Jiro quickly surrendered and reunited with Hondo again. Kenobi dueled Maul and Savage and was able to cut off Savage's arm. Maul and Savage retreated, with Hondo, Jiro, the pirates, and Kenobi behind. Jiro shot Maul's mechanical legs, and Savage helped him up. They retreated to the cargo ship, where one pirate blew up the engine, and the brothers escaped in an escape pod. Hondo searched the wreckage and thought they were demised, but Kenobi wasn't sure. On Coruscant, Chancellor Palpatine said this little skirmish was not big enough to be a direct threat to the Republic, thus no meaning to hunt them. Kenobi felt unsure, but Master Yoda said they must heed the words of the Chancellor.
