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.
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.
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.
