Satisfied because it was a fitting end to a character’s twisted journey, finding peace in a demise at the hands of a foe, but still unable to come to terms with the purpose behind the truth.
Angry because it wasn’t the long, drawn-out battle you’ve become accustomed to seeing over the course of Maul’s appearances in the Clone Wars and Rebels. But it truly was epic.
In the episode, Ezra Bridger finally finds Obi-Wan and attempts to warn him of Maul’s search-and-destroy mission, while also pleading for his assistance in the growing rebellion against the Empire. But Obi-Wan has a greater purpose in his residence on Tatooine, and he is unable to leave the desert planet.
Maul interrupts their meeting as Obi-Wan makes it clear to Ezra that he’s been manipulated by the Dathomir; the Holocron’s message was twisted and distorted by Maul in his quest for vengeance against the Jedi in hiding. The Jedi Master makes it clear to Ezra that his place is with the rebels, alongside his friends, and puts Ezra and Chopper on the path home.
Then, Maul and Kenobi do battle.
