Available since Friday, May 7, episode 2 of The Bad Batch refocuses the action on Omega and we tell you what we think about it right here!
Lucasfilm and Disney celebrated May the 4th by airing the first episode of the animated series The Bad Batch this week. The opportunity for the Clone Force 99 to unveil itself as it will have to fight its way to freedom in order to escape the threat of the Empire. Available since Friday, May 7, episode 2 of the show piloted by Dave filoni continues its momentum by certainly offering us an episode much shorter than the previous one but just as interesting vis-à-vis the characterization of its characters and more particularly the clones, whom the Star Wars saga has often portrayed as flavorless protagonists.
The paternal bond between Omega and Hunter will indeed strengthen throughout their new adventures, while the squad leader will try to protect the young girl as well as possible. This apprehension could also remind us of films like Logan, in which the seemingly badass main protagonist discovers a more sensitive fiber. Without falling into the clichés that the genre requires The Bad Batch plunges us into a rather original group dynamic, the series also offering Omega a naivety that her condition as a child implies while making her a strong character who should reveal spectacular skills in the next episodes.
This plot will also most certainly be developed in the rest of the season, several members of Clone Force 99 questioning the creation and purpose of Omega. Given its uniqueness, it’s a safe bet that kaminoens will go in search of it. What most certainly to offer a series filled with action and challenges for our heroes. Built like the series The Mandalorian, The Bad Batch indeed promises many adventures while following the common thread around the child. Another similarity: we could compare the adventures of this squad to those of Din Djarin with Baby Yoda. Given the success of the series Star wars worn by Pedro Pascal on Disney +, it wouldn’t be surprising if The Bad Batch follows his example when it comes to the theme of the family. Moreover, this spring has always been the glue of the franchise created by George Lucas. It is therefore not surprising that this new animated show takes up the codes of the saga to offer a new understanding of this theme. It remains to be seen if the series will hold this bet but something tells us that it could surprise us as fans! Episode 3 of The Bad Batch will be available to discover from May 14 on Disney +.
