Warning! Spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season two, episode nine, “The Crossing.”
After last week’s emotional arc that saw Echo (Dee Bradley Baker) leave the Bad Batch, this week returned Clone Troop 99 to a regular mission with Cid (Rhea Perlman) as they dealt with the fallout of losing another brother. Let’s take a look at the ending of “The Crossing” and what’s next for the Bad Batch.
The Sad Batch
After discovering the depth of the Empire’s plans for their clone brethren, Echo left the Bad Batch with Rex to help the clones and join a larger fight, a sentiment he had been building toward all season.
This week’s episode saw the few remaining members of the Bad Batch, primarily Omega (Michelle Ang), deal with the emotional fallout of his decision as they worked on a dangerous abandoned mining planet on behalf of Cid.
“The Crossing” felt like a bit of a setback in terms of plot and emotion after two episodes that saw The Bad Batch deliver shocking revelations for the larger canon. While the standalone episodes and missions are fun, they seem to miss an opportunity to dive deeper into the larger world of Clone Troop 99.
This episode ends with Cid leaving the Bad Batch to languish on the planet until she can send a rescue transport. It’s clear the clones and Cid are not on great terms and need to part ways, especially after being put in so many dangerous situations back-to-back.
With seven episodes left, it seems like it will probably be the finale before the Bad Batch leaves Cid behind and joins Echo in the larger, more consequential battle against the Empire to help the rest of the Clones. Until then, you’ll have to tune in to see what happens next.
