Having been freed by Ahsoka as a diversion amidst the issuing of Order 66, in the final episode of Star Wars The Clone Wars, “Victory and Death”, Maul continues his diversionary actions.

Diversions & Shenanigans
Having picked-up a communication device from one of the clone troopers at the end of the previous episode, “Shattered”, Maul continues wreaking havoc on the Republic cruiser, as we see him Force-choking two clone troopers simultaneously to death.

Maul then moves on to moving in to the the hyperdrive room, where he Force-pushes clone troopers into each other and then, dodging blaster shots from clone troopers, then Force-turning one of the clone troopers to end up shooting his fellow clone troopers.

Maul then tackles one of the clone troopers and bashing in the other clone troopers around him until he neutralizes all of the clone troopers around, at which point, he begins to Force-move the hyperdrive generators. He moves these massive hyperdrive generators and destroys them, causing massive damage to the ship, as well as making the ship come out of hyperspace.

Competing with Ahsoka for the Last Remaining Shuttle
While Ahsoka and Rex are fending off the dozens of clone troopers in the main hangar in seeking to get to the last remaining ship there, a shuttle, Maul emerges into the hangar, as well. Maul then spots a ship and begins running toward it. While running toward the shuttle, Ahsoka spots him and begins running after him to either join him on the shuttle or stop Maul.

Maul then yells, “You wanted this chaos!” (his only line of the episode) while Force-hurling crates at Ahsoka. After she leaps over them with her lightsabers, she then continues rushing Maul. However, Maul then massively Force-pushes her away, allowing him to hop into the shuttle and begin to take off.

Escaping Off of the Republic Cruiser
Once he begins piloting the shuttle and maneuvering it to leave the hangar, Ahsoka begins to pull the ship using the Force back to her in an attempt to either use it to escape with him or even stop Maul. While Ahsoka struggles with Force-pulling the shuttle, Maul is eventually able to pull away and fly off.

Conclusion
Maul is incredibly strong in this episode, and it is incredible to see how his Force powers have developed, seeing him go through clone troopers easily once Ahsoka frees him following the issuing of Order 66 and how much damage he can do without a lightsaber, as well as with all of the Force telekinesis he employs, especially in this episode. He also gives Ahsoka some of her own medicine – she freed him not to save him, but to save her, so now he is not going to save her in leaving the Republic cruiser.
