We have all heard in the news lately that Darth Maul is going to be resurrected in the last few episodes of season four. Now we all have different opinions, some believe that the idea is completely ridiculous, others absolutely love the idea. Regardless of your current opinions, I think that we should watch the episodes before jumping to conclusions. We don't know what they are going to do with Maul, all we know is that hes coming back.
I know in the past I have protested the idea but I have had a change of heart recently. It is physically impossible that Maul could have survived being chopped in half and the impact of hitting the bottom of the reactor shaft but this is Star Wars after all. Take General Grievous for example. After his shuttle crash, Grievous was essentially a brain, eyes, heart, lungs, liver, stomach, etc. If he could live like that in a bionic suit for the rest of his life (that is until being killed by Obi Wan) then I guess its possible, according to star wars physics, that Maul could have survived his ordeal as well.
Now on the flip side I have a somewhat negative theory on why they chose to resurrect Maul. Much like my theory with Ahsoka (my theory being that she was created as a marketing ploy to promote the Force Unleashed game back in 2008), my theory with Maul is that his resurrection is merely a marketing ploy. With the recent re-release of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in 3D (which I saw and very much enjoyed), they could have resurrected Maul in order to promote the re-release of the film. Again this is just my theory.
The main point that I'm trying to get across here is don't judge a book by its cover. Regardless of my theories and any previous thoughts you may have had on the subject, we should wait until the episode airs before making any critical judgments.
