After having fought alongside Ezra, Kanan, and Ahsoka against a few Inquisitors, with the Inquisitors falling back elsewhere on Malachor during “Twilight of the Apprentice”, Ahsoka gets very concerned about what Maul is doing, yet Maul assures her that they are on the same side:

Maul: "I am the enemy of your enemy now"
Maul: “I am the enemy of your enemy now”

Ahsoka: “Maul, what game are you playing?”
Maul: “The end game, Lady Tano. The end game. I am the enemy of your enemy now, and I have my own reasons for wanting the Empire to fall. (INHALES SHARPLY) But we have little time. The one they call Vader will be here soon.”

Upon hearing about Darth Vader, Kanan gets very concerned:

Kanan: “How do you know this?”
Maul: “His dogs will tell him where we are. Two Jedi and a “part-timer”. Oh, he will come. He will not be able to resist us.”
Kanan: “Okay, hold on, there is no “us”. Dealing with Inquisitors is one thing, Vader is another. And I’m not convinced we’re all on the same side anyway.”

At this, Ezra jumps in, bringing up the Sith holocron he and Maul have procured:

Ezra: “Kanan, we should trust him. Uh, look! He and I took this from the temple together! This is why we came here, right? To find out about the Sith. To find a way to beat them. Ahsoka, you said we came here for knowledge.”
Ahsoka: “Ezra, there is no way a Jedi can unlock that holocron.”
Maul: “But you may unlock the Temple itself.”
Ezra: “How? Tell me how.”
Maul: “At the top of the temple is a chamber. Connect the holocron to the obelisk within and you can unlock the ancient knowledge of the Sith.”

Ahsoka: “Why are you working so hard to keep us here?”
Maul: “I cannot defeat Vader alone.”

Maul, having been stranded on Malachor and expecting Darth Vader to confront him, is not in a good position, yet it’s not compelling enough of a reason for the Jedi:

Ezra: “I say we stay with him.”
Kanan: “Yeah? Well, I say we go, so that settles it.”
Maul, scoffing: “Are you such cowards that you would run from this chance to defeat your enemies? Who slaughter your friends?”
Ezra: “Kanan?”

Maul puts forth a convincing argument, causing Kanan to look over to Ahsoka for approval and she nods, causing Kanan to reluctantly agreed:

Maul is excited that Kanan has decided to work together to defeat the Inquisitors and Darth Vader

(SIGHS) (COMLINK BEEPING) – Kanan: “Chopper, we’re staying for a while. – (CHOPPER GRUNTING) Yeah, I know it’s a bad idea. Just scan for incoming ships, and keep the Phantom out of sight.”(CHOPPER GRUNTING)
Maul: “Oh, how exciting. We’re all on the same side.”
Kanan: “Just show us how to get to the top, and hurry.”
Maul: “This way.”

Maul is very excited 🙂

What’s Next
The Inquisitors regroup….
