The latest episode of The Bad Batch was this season’s shortest and yet it never failed to disappoint. The relationship between Hunter and Omega is becoming a major staple to the show, even if it does feel kind of like it’s piggybacking the success of The Mandalorian, but to make sure things wouldn’t get stale they brought back a fan favorite: Fennec Shand.
Fennec made her debut in the first season of The Mandalorian and instantly became a fan favorite with her bad*** moments. And then we thought she was dead forever, until she came back for a surprise return in the second season and surprised us even further by getting a major role in the upcoming Mandalorian spinoff.
Now she has returned for The Bad Batch and it seems she is going to be around for a minute. It was very exciting to see her in this episode but most importantly, the episode focused on the subtle implications of Fennce Shand being more than a ruthless killer but rather a person with a heart.
We see her focusing on her objective, capturing Omega, but there is a sort of tenderness to her actions with Omega. Maybe she’ll become a bit of an ally later down the road. We’ll see.
All in all, the episode was pretty darn entertaining and my favorite of the season so far. Let’s see what happens this week.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day. May the Force be with you.
