Bad Batch S1:E8 Chat (SPOILERS)

Prev1
I'm pretty sure
Wrecker solidified himself as my favorite BB Clone. He got pretty sassy this episode (Tech: "The power is back on." / Wrecker: "Yeah, I can see that.") and his love of chaos is so pure. The return of Crosshair did not disappoint. That whole firing-up-the-engine scene was pretty good.

  • Ok if anyone has watched it yet, I wanna discuss early. This episode was decent, but it seems to be following Mando with the stolen kid thing. Happy to have Bane back now tho.

    Cad Bane was solid. Crosshair coming in as expected was cool. Let’s see who is after Omega; might be the Kaminoans to save her from the Empire. Excited to find out. I enjoyed this episode.
  • When I heard “wasn’t much work” I instantly knew who it was and I **** my pants
  • Crosshair was as imp as ever. Fire up the ion engine to force them out.. didn’t expect to see Cad Bane. The duel reminded me of what was supposed to happen between him and Boba. Was that supposed to happen before or after this event? I know it was in a deleted scene from clone wars, so not sure if it got scraped. I especially loved how wrecker scored a bullseye on the clone with a proton torpedo. Lol.

    I can’t wait for the crosshair event! Though I kinda feel like he’s going to be killed off. Seems like someone is going to have to die and it would be a redemptive style send off.
  • Cad Bane being a wild west icon for 3 whole minutes was all the gift i needed today. I really love how calm and stoic he was. Usually he feels a lot more off-focus and even a little irate, but seeing him so in control was a pleasant surprise
  • How old is Cad Bane (lore-wise)? This takes place after Clone Wars, so Kenobi should be around, right? I’ll bet Kenobi gets involved sooner or later.

    Anyone know what Crosshair said right at the end? I've rewatched it like 5 times and still can't make out what he says as he's standing up.

    I thought the last 2 episodes in the "starship graveyard" were the best episodes yet. Intriguing, a little "spooky"/uneasy throughout both episodes. The contrast between the huge hunks of metal and native creatures was really well done. Cad Bane was great as well.

    It was a great episode, probably one of the best in the series so far. It will be interesting to see how the following episodes play out. Cad Bane at the end was great, definitely one of the best parts of the episode was the Hunter/Bane duel.

    I believe it was meant rather as an easter-egg to that scene: those who know the unfinished scene recognice it, and for those who don't, it won't matter. And I see it as a hint that the actual showdown between Cad Bane and Boba is not going to happen anymore, at least not the way it was originally planned. Actually, it was a little stupid from the beginning... why would Cad agree to a head-shot duel with Boba wearing his helmet^^.

    I’m glad they put something similar to the stand-off between Cad/Boba in the series. I was surprised to see Cad there. I honestly thought he was dead.
    I guess the original scene only makes sense if Cad didn’t know how Beskar worked. Though at the time, pre Mando, wasn’t the Mandalorian armor durasteel?
  • I feel like Cad Bane and Fennec Shand are going to have a run-in with each other.

    He definitely got burned. But now I’m wondering what the empire will do with injured clones and what the republic did with injured clones. As far as I know, the only clone that was sustained injury and still was used in combat was Echo and he was repaired by the CIS. For regular beings, we see prosthetics being used. Han had a fake eye, Anakin and Luke had hands replaced, trench and Vader were more machine than man. With cloning, why not make replacement parts? No chance of rejection, maybe to get a new limb it would take a long time to reach the appropriate age and if an acceleration factor was used to grow it, may need to be replaced more often?

    The return of Cad Bane was an exciting surprise. (Todo 360: fair enough.) I'm glad we have some higher stakes after the set up in the first 7 episodes. We have two bounty hunters now in The Bad Batch with some backstory, and Crosshair's journey will be interesting to watch.

    I'm hoping we see this series start tying in the new (but old in comparison to the original trilogy) tech introductions from The Mandalorian, such as chain codes and bounty pucks. Something that begins to make me see through lines after a lot of retconning that has never always made sense. I believe Filoni is best placed for the heart and the scope of Star Wars, and I'm glad I overcome my initial resistance to the animated projects to watch some of the best storytelling in the franchise. The TV shows together have added such value with their extended scope.

    I enjoyed this episode immensely.

    I’m pretty sure Commander Wolfe has a cybernetic eye, and Wrecker’s got that head scar with a white eye (although he and the rest of the Bad Batch probably wouldn’t be Jango enough for bionics for clones). Don’t think we ever saw clones with bionic replacements, but we never saw mechanical ones either.

    Plus Kamino was said to serve as a medical facillity for clones, even if it was barely shown.

    I don’t remember anything about prosthetics outside of echo. So it would be interesting to see them incorporated into the story like they did for Jedi.
  • Season 1 of CW:TAS included an assault on a medical space station that treated injured clones. It didn't clarify how they were treated, when cybernetics were used, etc., but they were made whole somehow, and no one has ever mentioned that they **wouldn't** be allowed cybernetics. I think we have to assume that some of them have bionic parts.

    No it was always Beskar. Already in the Old Republic era, it was mentioned in the EU with the full name Beskar'gam. But I'm not sure if this was official canon before Filoni used the term in Rebels.

    But whether Jango was a true Mandalorian or not was in question at the time. The CW brushed him off as simply a bounty hunter mimicking the Mandalorian warriors, with a Durasteel copy of their Beskar armor. Mando Armor was “always” Beskar, but Jango’s wasn’t.

    Well, the show literally started with Order 66, so are you asking how long in real time are 8 episodes? My guess would be a few weeks...maybe a month or so.

  • Hard to say. I'd just call it one week per episode unless you have a reason not to.

    I don’t think so. Jango was said to have durasteel armor. Boba Fett in The Mandalorian had Beskar, and now that the Fetts are Mandalorian again, I wouldn’t think Jango would use an inferior metal for his armor. 🤷‍♂️

    I would assume that mechanical prosthetics would be a cheaper, and quicker alternative to replacing limbs in SW. droid tech was advanced.

    Mandalorian armor is Beskar, but some of them (like Mando), have pure beskar armor. And I believe that Jango would use Beskar armor, since Boba made his armor out of Beskar to make it like Jango’s.

    Didn't Boba use Jango's armor? Or at least a spare suit of it? When did beskar actually come into canon? I remember before Mando came out, that Jango's armor was supposed to be durasteel.
