Note: Full spoilers for the episode are ahead.
"Revival" was a non-stop thrill ride, full of intense action and awesome Lightsaber battles. While the episode may have started a little too fast, and a few of the character models and voice acting near the beginning of the episode could have been slightly better, overall the episode was very impressive with its brutality and violence. Savage Opress impaling Adi Gallia was very cool and completely unexpected twist in the episode. The Ligthsaber battle was expertly choreographed and animated, one of the better fights of the series. Possibly the most shocking and violent part of "Revival" is how Savage's arm was sliced off by Obi-Wan. While I did notice that Opress had a robotic arm in the trailer, I did not expect that Obi-Wan would be the one to cut it off. The detail of his arm was amazing, I could even see his bone and flesh of his arm, The Clone Wars team is really pushing the TVPG rating. The music during the battle was particularly epic, one of the few time were the music was noticeably top notch in an episode. Hondo was hilarious and played a key role in the episode. His dialogue with Obi-Wan and his lines in general were great like “Who are these horny headed maniacs!?” The opening reminding the audience how utterly evil and murderous Maul and Opress truly are, with a cool opening scene battling droids. The nice touch of Maul's legs emitting green ooze from the Night Mother shows the Clone Wars team's attention to detail. Although some of the character's mouths did not match the animation perfect in a few scenes, but that is a small detractor. The Clone Wars started the season with one of the season opening episodes of the series, only season 3 was better.
Overall: 8.9/10- What "Revival" slightly lacked in plot, it more than made up for in sheer action and brutality.
