The Bad Batch Episode 1 Breakdown

The Bad Batch episode 1 has officially begun! The 75 minute episode gave us tons of new material to learn about Order 66 in Star Wars and how it impacted the Clones in particular. This show is essentially a continuation of The Clone Wars, and I am pretty excited to see where it goes. The start of the show with Kanan and Depa had me on the edge of my seat, but once he went away, it was a bit slower for me. I'm looking forward to seeing where it'll go in episode 2, maybe we'll meet up with Rex and Ahsoka?
Will we see Vader and Palpatine? I like how it shows where we are at certain moments during the episode, relative to Revenge of the Sith. I love those markers, it helps me know what else is going on in the galaxy and to keep things organized.

What do you hope to see from next week's episode?

  • Just something for all the fans who think Crosshair was or is sadistic, he isn't. He is not himself of course. Remember the Clones normal behavior is being overridden, if you will, by the chips. And if you want to see a Clone who WAS callous & sadistic, watch the Clone Wars episode(s) with the Clone Dogma starring. He wasn't even post Order 66 there either. Dogma betrayed his brothers, Crosshair did not. Talk about soldiers following orders..

  • Someone commented on how Crosshair was reacting the same as the regs at the end of Palpatine's Galactic Empire declaration, he indeed WAS NOT. He had his arms to his sides as did his Batch brothers. He was not raising his fist in agreement at any point there. Gosh people can we stop with the Crosshair bashing, please. And be accurate with your statements. Thank You.

  • Caleb/Kanan's voice freaked me out cause he should've had a slightly higher voice since he's only like a preteen/teenager here. Kanan's voice is too deep. Plus his skin is so light for him couldn't they have made his skin a little tan?

  • What has bothered me for so long is why/how Palpatine says the name of each Clone Commander when executing Order 66? I mean how many battlefronts were going on simultaneously? He couldn’t have prerecorded it because he was not deformed then. It’s a small detail but it’s always irked me.

  • I think we're gonna find out that crosshair following orders has nothing to do with his chip..I feel like we are gonna be led into thinking he can be redeemed or "fixed", but will find out that following orders is just who he is, chip or no chip! after ep 4 I believe this even more...they make it sound like it's his chip that is making him more susceptible to following order 66 but, they also pointed out that his defect should have made the chip less affective but that it was still "kinda" working? pretty sus if u ask me..I think when they amplifies the chips affects, it made him more cold blooded and robotlike however, I think he still had "a good soilder follows orders" type of personality either way n the amplification of the chip just brought out more of that personality.. the only part that gave me a lil doubt is when omega told him that she knows what he's gonna do, n that it wasn't his fault cuz he can't help it..if omega really has a super sensitive perception than that could derail my theory, so we will see.

  • 7:58 see i dont really like that theory i prefer to see it as croshair just genuenly velibing that following orders is always the good thing to do, not power hungry or gealous just genuenly disagreeing with hunter, also i think making it an effect of the chip would cheapen the concept, i like to imagine that one of crosshairs mutations is that he just really prefers to always follow orders, as a personality trait, no mind control

    Agus PuigAgus Puig26 күн мурун
  • personally i underrstood the crosshair firing at kanan thing as, his chip was broken or not working just like the others but part of his mutations just made his personality more akeen to following orders, think about it, the rest of the clones executed order 66 without speaking a word and treating people who didnt follow it as traitors, crosshair just said ''good soldiers follow orders'' but didnt inmediately atack his squad, so he is in control but is choosing to follow order 66, i like the idea that he isnt brainwashed its just that psicologically hes the kind of guy to always follow orders, even in episode two (spoilers for episode 2 btw) when they try to turn him against his squad they dont talk about repairing or strenghtening the chip, they talk about strenghtening his unique mutations that make him more obedient

  • The Bad Batch series is easily among the most emotionally resonant and masterful Star Wars properties ever released. For an optimal viewing experience, be certain to watch all 7 seasons of The Clone Wars before delving headlong into this most recent slice of superb space opera opulence. If you actually give a shit about the franchise, heed my recommendation. Until then, you'll never know what you're missing.

I had a "feeling" when she tried to comfort Crosshair, it had the "Jedi Mind Trick" vibe, but when she almost made a headshot against Crosshair (I'm pretty sure she could have killed him, but decided to just disarm him), that confirmed it more to me, but lets see what you think. After Watching: 4:47 Yes!!! I thought I was crazy for a minute!!

  • I think Omega is force sensitive, but I also don't think what she said to crosshair in the cell was a result of her force sensitivity. I think that because she was studying to be a medical apprentice, she knew of the inhibitor chip's existence and realized that crosshair's chip was still active.

  • I actually really like how they explained why the Empire moves away from Clones. While yeah, the Stormtroopers are objectively worse soldiers than the Clones, the Empire's reasoning is actually sound. The Clone Wars are over. And the GAR, now Imperial Military, needs to shift from a warfighting force to a peacekeeping and garrisoning force. Which means combat effectiveness is no longer the priority, but rather cost effectiveness. One billion good enough Stromtroopers are better for galactic peacekeeping than one hundred million excellent Clone Troopers. It underscores that Palpatine and the Empire as a whole really did not seriously expect to fight another Galactic War. Or if they did, they did not want to fight one where their soldiers would be stretched thin, like they had been in the Clone Wars. The Rebel Alliance and New Republic was really something the Empire did not expect.

They agreed to do it a hand at stages along the journey two of them willingly sacrifice themselves to keep her alive. I am totally foreseeing everyone sacrificing themselves so that Hunter and Omega can retire to be normal people living a normal life somewhere.
