At the beginning of the episode, the clone previously thought to be dead emerges from under the rubble and resumes his search for Omega. Wasting no time, Rex (Dee Bradley Baker), Omega, and Clone Force 99 attempt to escape the base and get back to their ship to contact Echo. Imperial reinforcements arrive and meet with the rogue assassin who survived the blast.

The Imperial clone reinforcements discover the crew’s escape hole and before the commander can give an order, the rogue clone jumps in after them. The assassin intercepts the Bad Batch, but Crosshair holds him off while the rest of the group heads towards the ship. They manage to reach the ship and escape the base, but the assassin shoots them down in the forest and the Imperial clones head out to search for them.

Once the group crash lands, Howzer admits that he can tell Crosshair has changed and asks why, and Crosshair delivers a speech about loyalty as to why he left the Empire. The Imperial clones cut off the Bad Batch en route to the extraction point, but Clone Force 99 cuts through them like butter. The assassin kills Nemec and Crosshair holds him off once again while the group moves towards the extraction zone.

Captain Rex Gives a Poignant Speech That Gets Through to His Old Friend Wolffe

Crosshair and the rogue assassin clone get into a vicious fight, and he almost kills Crosshair, but Rex saves him just before he drowns. They make it to the rendezvous point, but Echo isn’t there to meet them; instead, it’s Rex’s old friend Wolffe. Following a brief speech about loyalty and family, Wolffe lets Rex and Clone Force 99 escape so they can get Omega to safety.

After previously being blown up last episode and falling off a cliff in his fight with Crosshair, the rogue clone crawls onto the shore and somehow manages to survive yet another dance with death. Rex and Hunter share a moment on the ship, and Hunter tells him the Empire is too strong, and he can’t win — but Rex refuses to give up. Rex tells him that to truly keep Omega safe, they must find out what Dr. Hemlock (Jimmi Simpson) wants with her.

Each subsequent episode in The Bad Batch Season 3 continuously improves upon the last, building on a layered and intriguing story while further developing the compelling characters. Although Dr. Royce Hemlock and his operations at Mount Tantiss have been absent for several episodes, the thought of their looming presence strikes fear into both the audience and Clone Force 99. As it currently sits, the final season of The Bad Batch has a chance to go down as one of the best Star Wars animated properties ever.
