The Bad Batch Season 3, Episode 10 opens with a group of strangers on a mystery planet talking about a “gifted” child. One of the strangers returns home and calls an unknown bounty hunter about the child. On Tantiss, Dr. Hemlock makes Dr. Emerie Karr (Keisha Castle-Hughes) the new Chief Scientist and tells her she needs to be up to speed on Project Necromancer.

They walk together to a vault where he shows her three children, each with special M-count properties. Dr. Hemlock tells Emerie that Omega’s blood is special because it’s capable of acting as a binder to reproduce high M-count levels. While Emerie talks with the children, Dr. Hemlock reminds her to limit her “personal interactions” with them, as they are nothing more than experiments.

Meanwhile, back on the mystery planet, legendary bounty hunter Cad Bane (Corey Burton) shows up to claim the “gifted” child. He and his droid Todo (Seth Green) run a test that reveals favorable results and kidnap the child. Back on Tantiss, one of the captive children, Eva (Olwyn M. Whelan), asks when she can go home, but Emerie can’t bring herself to tell her the truth. Another child, Jax (Ivan Sinitsin) tries to escape until a unit of clones rush in and stun him.

Dr. Emerie Karr Is the Star of the Show in the Latest Episode

The Bad Batch Season 3, Episode 10 continues with Emerie going to visit Nala Se (Gwendoline Yeo) and asking about Project Necromancer. Nala Se tells Emerie it’s now her responsibility to look after the kids, but she claims she can’t do it. Hemlock tells Emerie that another child is coming to Tantiss, and a clone alerts him that Governor Tarkin (Stephen Stanton) needs to speak with him urgently.

Tarkin asks about Project Necromancer, but Dr. Hemlock refuses to tell him anything, standing his ground to a long-respected Star Wars villain. After their discussion, Hemlock contacts the rogue clone assassin and demands they bring Omega to him. Emerie then heads to meet Cad Bane in a secure location to inspect and collect the child. She wants to know where the child is from, but Bane won’t give up the information.

Emerie returns to the base to find Eva upset with her because she lied about Jax not getting in trouble for attempting to escape. Inside the lab, Emerie runs more blood tests and opens a small container to find the doll Omega gifted to her in the first episode of Season 3. Eva wakes up in her cell to find the doll sitting in the doorway as Emerie watches from overhead.

The latest episode of The Bad Batch is another shining example of the series’ prowess in navigating multiple storylines. After an appearance from Asajj Ventress (Nika Futterman) in the previous episode, moving back to Tantiss was no less interesting or compelling. With only five episodes remaining, the stakes are higher than ever before.

The Bad Batch Season 3, Episode 10 is now streaming exclusively on Disney+. Follow the Agents of Fandom socials for all the latest entertainment news and reviews.
