The series premiere of Star Wars: The Bad Batch arrived on Star Wars Day with an extended 70-minute episode, allowing fans and newcomers alike to get a real taste of what the series would be like.
In “Aftermath” we picked up right at the beginning of Palpatine’s devastating “Order 66,” seeing from the Clones’ perspective, and specifically Clone Troop 99’s “certain point of view,” the confusion and chaos sewn after the order took place.
The episode followed a rift in the Bad Batch as Hunter, Echo, Wrecker, and Tech were resistant to the Order and Crosshair wasn’t, leaving them exposed and newly threatened by the Empire and suddenly the prey of their once comrade.
Disney is treating fans with a double dose of The Bad Batch this week, dropping the next episode on its Friday usual release date. Let’s see what’s in store for the second episode.
Watch the official preview below:
As seen above, the second episode, possibly titled “For Hire” as indicated in the video title, will see the remaining members of the Bad Batch on the run and working for hire as mercenaries as they try to stay below the radar of the Empire.
The Bad Batch, namely Hunter, also picked up a new member in “Aftermath” — a young girl named Omega on Kaminoa. We don’t know much about her yet, but can see in the preview above that she can hold her own in a fight.
At the episode’s end, they were headed to J-19 to meet an old friend for help. Whether they’ll be meeting a familiar face or a new character remains to be seen, but we’re along for the ride.
