After a double dose of Star Wars: The Bad Batch last week, we’re back to the regular schedule of Bad Batch episode releases. The second episode, “Cut and Run” saw the Bad Batch reunite with Cut Lawquane, a former clone trooper as they tried to find a safe place for Omega.
So far, The Bad Batch seems to be a bit of a mashup of The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars as it explores Hunter’s sudden role of father to Omega (much like Mando’s with Grogu) while continuing the story of the clones from The Clone Wars.
However, a huge part of The Bad Batch will also focus on Clone Force 99’s means for survival in the immediate aftermath of Order 66 and their turn to mercenaries, as seen in the preview for this week’s episode.
Watch the official preview below:
As seen above, it looks like episode 3 will find the Bad Batch taking on their first mission as mercenaries for hire (with Omega in tow). The preview also shows the return of Crosshair, who isn’t “defective” as the others and still at the mercy of the Empire.
With Crosshair’s inhibitor chip keeping him loyal to the Empire, the deadly assassin is on the heels of The Bad Batch, making the once-loyal band of brothers fractured as they fight for survival with one of their own hunting them.
What will happen when they meet again? You’ll have to tune in to find out.
