The Newest Episode of ‘The Bad Batch’ Is Surprisingly Dark

The Bad Batch‘s third episode was way better than I expected as it introduced new characters into the story that add a particularly interesting spin on the series as a whole. Crosshair is back and creepier than ever, the Bad Batch’s grip on my emotions is tightening and I’m honestly terrified of anything happening to them, and Omega is as sweet as she can be.

But what surprised me the most about this show’s third episode is its darkness. Both The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels have had their dark moments but for some reason there was a particular scene in this newest episode that left my jaw dropped.

It struck me with its brutality and it made me begin to wonder just who the show was made for because it didn’t seem like it was catering to children. The Bad Batch continuously manages to subvert my expectations and I’m just ready for the next episode.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.
