Star Wars Rebels - Season 2, Episode 21-22 //
Twilight of the Apprentice Episode Guide
In search of a way to truly defeat the Inquisitors, Kanan Jarrus, Ahsoka Tano, and Ezra Bridger made their way to Malachor. The Sith temple greeted them with it's looming pillars covered in text written in the “old tongue” and Ezra unwittingly opens one of the temple's door when the trio go to inspect them. Upon entering, the rebels discover that the temple was a battlefield and learn that they are not alone. While Ahsoka and Kanan fended off the Inquisitors, Ezra uncovered a Sith holocron containing the knowledge they seek. No one leaves the Sith temple unchanged.
Sith holocrons hold knowledge and wisdom that can only be accessed by dark side practitioners. The artifacts can also be used as keys to unlock temple doors. The Sith temple on Malachor was the home of a Sith holocron that Maul attempted to steal with the help of Ezra Bridger. When placed in the temple's obelisk, the holocron could create a super weapon, designed to take life. Maul's plans were foiled, however, when Ezra and his Master Kanan were able to pull the holocron from the obelisk just in time.
Nimble and menacing, the Eighth Brother was a deadly Terrelian Jango Jumper Inquisitor. Dispatched by Darth Vader, he was sent to Malachor to attempt to find and capture Maul, and instead found himself face to face with Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus, and Ahsoka Tano. The Eighth Brother often used his double-bladed, spinning lightsaber to propel himself through the air, making for sneak attacks and quick escapes. This method proved unwise, however, when he jumped off the edge of the Malachor Sith Temple with his damaged lightsaber, and fell to his death.
A deadly, agile Sith Lord trained by the evil Darth Sidious, Darth Maul was a formidable warrior and scheming mastermind. He wielded an intimidating double-bladed lightsaber and fought with a menacing ferocity. Though he fell in battle against Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Zabrak from Dathomir would prove to be much harder to destroy than originally believed.
