Alright, Batchers, buckle up! We’ve finally reached the halfway point of this 16-episode season which means we need to prepare for things to go sideways in The Bad Batch episode 8. It’s just the way of television.
The midseason often leaves viewers gasping, potentially pulling at their hair, and jumping up and down for the rest of the season to unfold on their screens. Thankfully Disney+ isn’t putting a month or two between the first and second parts of the season.
According to The Bad Batch‘s release schedule, there will be no breaks between episodes for this series, so if episode 8 leaves you desperately wanting more, you can anticipate another episode next Friday.
We left off in episode 7, “Battle Scars,” with a scrapper informing the Empire of the Batch’s whereabouts. The group, after a brief, dangerous encounter with a brainwashed Wrecker, removed their inhibitor chips. So, there’s no way they can be turned by the devious regime but that doesn’t mean there’s no cause for concern.
Here’s what episode 8 has in store for these clones on the run.
The Bad Batch episode 8 synopsis, title, and runtime
“Reunion” is episode’s 8 title which means even if you decide to skip viewing the trailer for the episode, you can pretty much guess who the Batch are about to cross paths with. We’ll keep things hush-hush for spoilers’ sake but it’s exactly who you think it is.
As for the synopsis, once again not much is given away:
"The Batch find themselves cornered on treacherous terrain."
Still, it sounds like a nail-biting situation. How will our misfit crew make it out of this one? Can they? It’s the midseason episode, what will most assuredly go wrong? Anything is possible. The Empire knows exactly where they are, they’re in debt to Cid, there’s a bounty on Omega, and there aren’t a lot of places in this scrapyard to hide.
Could the Batch’s clock be running out of time? You’ll have to watch this 27-minute episode to find out and see where the show takes us next.
The Bad Batch episode 8 is streaming now on Disney+.
