Star Wars and Disney not only dropped an exciting 70-minute premiere for The Bad Batch but they also released episode 2, “Cut and Run” this morning. Now that the Batch are fugitives of the Empire, they must find a way to survive. The problem is the Empire is cracking down on its people and they have a curious child in tow.
Before we get into this Bad Batch episode 2 breakdown, this is your spoiler warning. The Bad Batch is now streaming on Disney+.
The Clone Wars intro is gone. Now the boys are fugitives from the empire and are responsible for a young clone – Omega. Clone Force 99 has made it to J-19 but unfortunately so has the empire.
They meet up with an old friend, someone you may recognize if you watched The Clone Wars. Cut also drops a hint that Rex has come and gone recently. Since Rex appeared briefly in the trailer, it is safe to say we may see him really soon.
With the increased presence of the empire, Cut and his family needs passage off the planet but the only way to do so is with chain codes. Unfortunately, he can’t get one since he is technically a deserter. That’s not an issue for the Bad Batch. Tech comes up with a great plan. But things never go as planned for our clones and they must fight their way out.
We are sharing our thoughts on episode 2 and where think the series is headed. Plus you can hear the full breakdown. Subscribe today so you don’t miss an episode!
Happy May the 4th Be With You! As any Star Wars fan knows, this is an important day on our calendar. This year, Disney and Lucasfilm released The Bad Batch, the latest animated offering in the Star Wars canon.
Being a spiritual successor of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch starts off in typical Clone Wars fashion. A narrator brings everyone up to speed on the latest happenings in the galaxy. Then it’s time for our Batch to do what they do best.
After they save the day the galaxy descends into chaos when Order 66 is enacted. All the clones around them proceed to react and eliminate the Jedi master in their midst. They also attempt to kill a young Padawan who Star Wars Rebels fans might just recognize.
Hunter and most of the Batch are confused by this new order and what life in the empire will mean for them. Crosshair however is more on the order following side and disagrees with Hunter’s methods.
They meet a new clone named Omega who reveals Kamino is no longer safe for her or the Batch. After a daring escape, the crew sets course for a planet to visit an old friend. Unfortunately, one of their own has turned on them. The fact that he is now working steadfastly for the empire will make for some epic drama down the road.
Welcome back! Just in time for May the 4th be with you, we are back with friend, marry, kill, Star Wars edition! The Marvel episode was so much fun we had to do it again. Funny enough, one person makes both lists in the same spot! We will give you 3 guesses who that is and the first 2 don’t count.
Friend, Marry, Kill Star Wars Edition
The rules are simple. Friend means you are meh on the character or the storyline. Marry they are perfection and should be treasured forever. Kill they are the worst, the absolute worst. You got the idea, so let’s introduce our special guests.
Meghan Cooper is the creative force behind JaMonkey and DisneyWishful. She is a good friend of ours and fellow geek. From Disney to Star Wars, Harry Potter to Marvel, she loves her fandoms! You can find her on social @JaMonkey.
Shockers aside, we all felt that The Clone Wars (not including the latest season and Ahsoka, The Clone Troopers, and Maul) are okay. Sometimes the back and forth of the storyline and heavy focus on disliked characters from the prequels detract from the overall greatness.
Don’t hate us too much, we like them we just don’t love them enough to marry, unless we could tweak a bit.
Star Wars Resistance also made the list. Kaz is whiney like Iron Fist and you know how we feel about Danny Rand. And following the greatness that is Star Wars Rebels in the animated Star Wars world, it just felt like a so-so show.
About Meghan’s list though… I don’t want to spoil anything, but you might want to say a certain compound word that starts with m and ends with -er when you hear it.
