We already know that Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 leads straight to Revenge of the Sith. However, it looks like the final season of the animated series is also connected to another Star Wars property. The latest episode has unexpectedly brought back a major character who would eventually play a larger role in Shadows of the Empire.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers from Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 Episode 10. Proceed with caution.
In The Phantom Apprentice, Darth Maul reveals that he is planning to take over the criminal underworld since he knows that information will become an important commodity once the Empire takes over. He later speaks to the Shadow Collective, which includes Dryden Vos of the Crimson Dawn, Lom Pyke of the Pyke Syndicate, and ... Prince Xizor of the Black Sun.
We already know that Prince Xizor is a major crime lord in Shadows of the Empire although some of us may have forgotten about the character (I mean, I did). This is probably why the character's appearance in the Clone Wars was a huge surprise. Still, it's a welcome one considering that people are now convinced that there could be a way to bring back characters who had appeared in the multimedia project.
Prince Xizor played an important role in Shadows of the Empire as he was trying to take Darth Vader's place and serve Emperor Palpatine. In an effort to impress the Emperor, he orders Jabba the Hutt to kill Luke Skywalker. Luckily, things don't work out for both villains.
