Darth Maul (the daydreaming Sith) has mysterious visions of the Queen while he's going after her and the Jedi. These visions are intrusive at times, but he is curious as to what they mean, and enjoys carrying this alternate reality with him in his mind. He sees many things through the Force--many things that never come to be and many things that do. Some of the things he sees are simply stories or fantasies. This is just one of many sets of vision-images floating around in his mind (he daydreams frequently, the Force enhancing his dreams).

It becomes clear to him that the Queen carries doom with her--he can see her death coming (one way or another she is doomed to die and this is obvious). Perhaps it gives him a further sense of power to look upon her with pity. What he doesn't realize is that his preoccupation with these visions is a mask to cover his insight into his own death that is soon to come (that the doom he sees around her is also his own).

Not believing he will fail or die (blinded by his arrogance to that outcome), he doesn't understand who the man surrounding the Queen in her future is... he tries to peer in further but he can't even see his face (he is simply a dark presence). The man's back is always turned. He is cold and unapproachable. His presence feels like it is of the Dark Side. The man is a threat to the Queen and endangers her future.

It isn't until the end that Maul realizes he's already met this man (it was the boy he nearly ran over on Tatooine). He now probably realizes what this means: the man is a Sith who comes after him, because he in fact will die well before the Queen. In shock, he now sees all the signs that were staring him in the face.

In a way the Queen was the only sympathetic figure in his mind... the last shreds of "goodness" in him cling to her image. She has many faces--some alien, ominous, cold and powerful; others soft and full of feeling (more human than symbolic). He can't see through any of them to understand what exactly she is. The form of the angel is a foreign presence that he fears as he is terrified of death and the unknown. Angels represent all of this to him because angels are dead. She is the angel.

(I changed my mind a lot about what this was about in the beginning, so the video comes out somewhat slurred and unclear in concept. I'd really like to remake this whole thing with a different song because I feel it just didn't get at everything I was trying to reach.)

I couldn't seem to help adding that clip of Obi Wan and that creature falling into that pit from Attack of the Clones, which rather detracts from any more serious tone. I rather wish I hadn't. I think I felt that the video was too far from what I wanted so I gave it this botched mark.
