Review | Star Wars The Bad Batch (Episode 8: Reunion)

The Bad Batch Episode 8 is another great episode – action-packed with some big surprises! It will leave you on the edge of your seat the whole time!

Today is Friday so this means it’s time for a new episode of The Bad Batch! This one is called ‘Reunion’ and it’s not an emotional reunion but rather an explosive one!

An Explosive Reunion

This episode picks up with The Bad Batch still on Bracca. You get some more family bonding moments between Omega and Wrecker. I love their relationship, it feels like a big brother/little sister type of relationship. On the other hand, Omega and Hunter have a father/daughter bond. It’s great to see Omega having different interactions with each member of The Bad Batch. That’s what makes this show extra special.

As for the reunion, it obviously involves Crosshair. He is back with lots of clones to stop Clone Force 99. It’s an action-packed episode with our heroes trying to escape Bracca. And of course, it doesn’t end well for both sides.

An Unexpected Return

Crosshair’s return isn’t the only surprise of the episode. A fan-favorite bounty hunter makes his big return – Cad Bane (with his droid TODO-360). It was so unexpected. As Palpatine would say “a surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one!” This show keeps bringing back so many characters from The Clone Wars. I couldn’t be happier about this! Cad Bane is back with a brand new outfit. Technically, it isn’t new. It was created for the unfinished bounty hunter arc in The Clone Wars. So I’m glad to see it fully animated now! It’s not as western-ish as the old one but it still is pretty badass.

Obviously, Cad Bane means trouble. That’s what he gives to our heroes. You are not ready for what happens at the end of the episode. It will leave you on the edge of your seat and wanting to see next week’s episode now!

Verdict

This is another great episode – action-packed with some big surprises! It will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time!
