Podcast Stardust #286: The Bad Batch – Rescue on Ryloth – 0112

by Podcast Stardust

Hera recruits the Bad Batch to help rescue her parents from the clutches of Admiral Rampart and the Empire.

The last episode of The Bad Batch featured Hera Syndulla and her parents. The Bad Batch only made a brief appearance in their own show. However, that all changes this week. Cham and Eleni Syndulla are held prisoner for allegedly attempting to assassinate Orn Free Taa. When Hera sends a request for help, Omega is eager to come to her aid. Hunter isn’t so sure about this plan though. On this episode of Podcast Stardust, we talk about the relationship and influence Omega, Hunter, and the rest of the Bad Batch have on each other and how they make it work to rescue the Syndullas.

On this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • Hunter’s reluctance to accept Hera’s mission to rescue Cham Syndulla,
  • Omega’s relationship with the rest of the Bad Batch,
  • How The Bad Batch is about the Empire establishing its hold on the galaxy,
  • The display of Hunter’s skills in taking down the probe droid,
  • Hera and Omega’s relationship and Hera’s plan to rescue her parents,
  • How Captain Howzer seems not to be subject to his inhibitor chip, and
  • What is Crosshair’s motivation and his plans to hunt down the Bad Batch.
