Warning! Spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season two, episode fourteen, “Tipping Point.”
Last week’s episode of The Bad Batch saw the crew seemingly settle down in a tranquil remote safe haven for refugees. This week, Clone Troop 99 was pulled back into the main conspiracy plot of the season in a story that will reunite the clones with their once-forsaken brother.
After a somewhat disparate season, “Tipping Point” finally seems to be bringing the Bad Batch into the larger story of the season. The episode opened with an action-packed heist aboard an Imperial ship led by Echo, Rex, and their band of clones.
Echo (Dee Bradley Baker) showed up later on Pabu with a stolen piece of Imperial data he needed Tech’s help to decrypt, reuniting the crew with their brother for the first time since he’d left to help their fellow clones–a mission Hunter still doesn’t seem to get.
Tech quickly processed the files and discovers Crosshair is being held captive by Dr. Hemlock (Jimmi Simpson) and had also sent them a message. However, the remaining members of the Bad Batch were reticent to jump in and rescue him, worried it could be a trap.
Meanwhile, Crosshair’s allegiance to the Empire seemed to be completely gone. As they tortured him for any information about his brothers or Omega, wanting her back because she is their “property,” Crosshair refused to reveal anything he knew.
The episode’s final moments were chilling as Hemlock sicked another Interrogator on Crosshair, hoping to break the clone. It’s likely his brothers will rescue him, but what condition he’ll be in, and what will happen to Omega, remains to be seen.
