My Evaluation of Episode 9 of ‘The Bad Batch’

The Bad Batch has had its ups and downs but yesterday’s episode was all pros, no cons, and now I’ve got to write about it.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

First off, and I’m going straight to the nitty-gritty with this evaluation, was that a first rendition of Snoke?

In Episode 4 of The Mandalorian‘s second season we saw Mando and co. go into an Imperial facility on Nevarro where they encountered blue tubes with the remains of what appeared to be a botched Snoke clone. I immediately began to suspect that these shows Filoni were producing were going to try to make the sequels make more sense. And no, these connections won’t ultimately fix the debacle that is the sequel trilogy (only an animated remake of the trilogy would fix that) but it can make the sequel trilogy a little bit better.

Now, in this episode, we’ve seen more experiment tubes, this time with green gook inside, and inside that green gook we managed to see a large alien that looked like a hybrid between a Grey and whatever Snoke is.

The Bad Batch season one, episode three recap: Replacements

This feels like an early rendition of what Snoke turned out to be but the real question is, what eventually succeeded in creating Snoke to the point where he could shoot lightning out of his fingers with a simple gesture?

I think we’re going to get this question answered in either this show or maybe the Ahsoka series.

And then there’s the other major bombshell of the show and why I truly believe this series is connected to The Book of Boba Fett. Yesterday’s episode answered the question of why Omega is deemed so special. Apparently she’s made of first-generation genetic material from Jango Fett, resulting in the notion that she is Boba’s sister.

Why would Filoni reveal to us that Fett now has a sister months before his show comes out? It’s not a coincidence and I am totally here for it. Plus, the show is roughly six months away and we haven’t gotten any casting news which means…

Here’s to hoping for her live-action debut in The Book of Boba Fett.

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

‘The Bad Batch’ Was Kind of Boring This Week

The Bad Batch, for the past four weeks, has been so much fun. There have been some surprises, some heartfelt moments that made me care about and love these characters that I once hated, and it’s just been plain fun.

And then today’s episode happened. Will it move the story forward? Yes. Was it necessary for character development, specifically for Omega? Yes. But it was boring!

I was excited to see the Zygerrian slave traders in this animation and they were as beautiful as I imagined they’d be but…it just wasn’t one of those fun episodes for me.

It felt like one of those classic boring Clone Wars episodes that you skip to get to the next good episode. Unfortunately, I can’t skip to the next episode so…

Minor Spoilers Ahead!

But one thing I will say about this episode. There’s been theories going around that Omega is Force-sensitive. This episode all but confirmed those theories when Omega was the only clone to figure out that Cid was actually Cid just by looking at him.

The fact that the Kaminoans may have created themselves their very first Force-sensitive clone is very intriguing for the story moving forward and its implications for the future. And could we see Omega return in live-action somewhere down the line like in The Book of Boba Fett or even The Mandalorian‘s Season 3? Or maybe even Ahsoka? We’ll see.

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