- "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
"Revenge" is the twenty-second and final episode of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series' fourth season. This is the conclusion to a four-part storyline about the fate of Asajj Ventress, the Nightsisters, and two of the Nightbrothers, which began with the last three episodes: "Massacre", "Bounty", and "Brothers". It first aired on March 14 in France on W9, before its official premiere on Cartoon Network on March 16, 2012. This episode is chronologically followed by Season Five's second episode, "A War on Two Fronts."
Reunited, Maul and Savage Opress travel back to Dathomir, where they are led by Mother Talzin to her village, where she removes Maul's spider-like cybernetics and uses magicks to create new cybernetic legs, as well as restore Maul's sanity. Once back to full health, Maul decides to wreak his revenge on the man who reduced him to his state: Obi-Wan Kenobi.
To bring him to them, Maul and Opress travel to a village on the planet Raydonia, slaughter the inhabitants and send a hologram message to the Jedi Temple, challenging Obi-Wan to come to them. Despite Mace Windu's suggestion to send in a Jedi task force, Obi-Wan decides that he must go alone to rectify his mistake. But as Windu expresses his concerns about this undertaking, Yoda cryptically states that Obi-Wan will not be alone in this endeavor – and as he speaks, in a certain place on Tatooine, Asajj Ventress learns of a reward placed on the head of Savage Opress and goes off after him.
Obi-Wan travels to the Raydonian village and is quickly taken down by Maul and Opress, who take him aboard their hijacked freighter to be tortured to death. However, just before they take off, Ventress has landed on the planet, found their ship and hitched a ride. Appearing before the two brothers, she taunts them, making them abandon an unconscious Obi-Wan to search for her. Ventress returns to Obi-Wan, wakes him up and lends him one of her lightsabers for his defense when Maul and Opress return. The two team up in order to fight the brothers, but find themselves outmatched and just barely escape by jettisoning the ship's cockpit, leaving Maul and Opress adrift. Despite this setback, Maul is satisfied that the Jedi will yet come after him once more and that he will get his revenge after all.
"Revenge" was the second episode in the series to feature a red opening logo, rather than the standard yellow one. The previous episode also featured this logo, for the first time, due to the return of Darth Maul.
According to a behind the scenes feature at StarWars.com, the turtle tanker is not actually stranded in space, as there is a second control pod in the tanker. Maul is seen in it at the end of the episode.
