With the end of the Clone Wars, the Empire has no further use for Kamino, and this week, they make that apparent. What happens this week will drop the curtain on the age of Clone Troopers, for good.
When the Bad Batch tries to rescue a deserting clone, they come face to face with the first of the infamous Stormtroopers!!
While everyone would want the Bad Batch to get things ready for the endgame between them and Crosshair, this episode returns to the same weekly formula that we’ve come to expect.
With her parents held captive and Ryloth occupied by the Empire, Hera turns to the Bad Batch to help break them out.
Ever since Disney took over the Star Wars franchise, they’ve been trying to run a tight ship. It’s not just axing most of the Expanded Universe. They’re trying to make sure that all Star Wars content is connected to each other in some way. As someone who was a fan of the EU, this strategy seems like a double-edged sword. Yes, it means less contradictions, but it also makes Star Wars not as big as it once was. Case in point, this week’s episode of The Bad Batch barely features them. Instead, it focuses on the origins of a future rebel leader, Hera Syndulla.
