In this Star Wars explained style video, we explore a big moment from The Bad Batch Episode 8 “Reunion” between Hunter and Echo that could have major implications going forward for the Clone Wars spin-off by Dave Filoni. I also look at a Star Wars theory for what could happen with Captain Rex, Echo and it even involves Commander Cody and the Inhibitor Chips. After doing my full episode breakdown for Episode 8 the Bad Batch, I spoke about Omega, the Kaminoans, what will happen with Crosshair and of course the new big bad of the series – Cad Bane. But this detail is something that went over most people’s heads.
As the Empire begins its plan under Tarkin and Rampart – Project War-Mantle, will the clones soon be replaced in the aftermath of Order 66? Is a clone rebellion coming up? Will Lama Su be able to get Omega back in time? It’s believed that Omega is force-sensitive and not just a regular Jango Fett clone. Could she be linked to Palpatine? In the aftermath of Order 66, Clone Force 99 were confronted on Bracca by Crosshair. Hunter was shot by Cad Bane which signals a possible cameo of Boba Fett with Fennec Shand. Crosshair was injured by the ion engine which means he might have a redemption arc and rejoin Echo, Tech, Hunter, Wrecker and Omega since he is now useless to the Empire.
The Bad Batch is one of the many upcoming series that were announced by Kathleen Kennedy at Disney Investor Day 2020 with The Mandalorian Season 3, Star Wars: Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, Lando, Cassian Andor and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
