So yesterday’s episode of The Bad Batch was fun. It was simple with a bit of touching moments between Hunter and Omega, invoking that same sense of familial comfort that Favreau and Filoni were able to perfectly create with Mando and Grogu in The Mandalorian.
And I think that’s going to be the main focal point of this newest animated series. The bond between these clones against the adversity the galaxy will bring, the shocking turn of Crosshair and how he will be a major thorn in the Bad Batch’s side, Omega’s story and how she will grow closer and closer to this group of clone misfits, and eventually, toward the end of the series, we will see some of these characters die.
It’s bound to happen because, well, we’ve never seen The Bad Batch beyond this point. Will they all die? I’m not quite sure but I think it’s kind of obvious that Filoni is going to kill Hunter and rip our hearts out in the process. Why do I think this is going to happen? Because he’s already killed so many lovable characters before; Steela Gerrera, Satine Kryze, Kanan Jarrus, and even though Ezra’s technically alive, he still made him sacrifice himself at the end of the show, disappearing for three years now.
So yeah…I have a bad feeling about this.
I’ll give the second episode a solid 4 out of 5 stars. It wasn’t the best thing I’d ever seen nor was I expecting it to be but it was enjoyable, engaging, and yeah, I got a little stressed out.
