Ugh. So when Rey moves into the Skywalker farm, she finds an old letter from Gramma Omega to her daughter, and tells her about the old BBQ where she met Rey's grandpa?
Yeah, that'll be great. I suppose Star Wars Street needs a dance hall or diner for characters to hook up and get the old incest generator going.

Now what I'm thinking will happen is that they'll manage to get the chip off Crosshairs... and it won't change a thing.

This, this I can see. I like it.

Pardon if this is a dumb question but do we know if Rae's Palpatine parent was the mother or father?

That’s my understanding of it too.

And if memory serves, he wasn’t a natural birth? Just been looking on various sites, and it seems I can’t actually substantiate that at this time.

I don’t think she’s a Palp clone. She’s not given Enough importance for that and the Caminoians behaved like she was a personal project and not one sanctioned by anyone. I don’t think Tarkin would be there threatening a shutdown if that project was going on.

If they even know. Palpatine wouldn’t tell Tarkin everything.

Consider. The Kaminoans, or at least Lama Su was in on Order 66, yes?

What better way to protect your position than cloning a Daughter of Palpatine, so should he fall/be assassinated, you’ve got a puppet Emperor to ensure you’re left entirely alone.

Without getting vulgar or crude, I always preferred to think that the Palpatine kid was a clone/high tech IVF or whatever than Palpatine getting busy.

Even today it would be technologically trivial for a would-be dictator to artificially seed tons of children.

TCW ahd an arc where Boba Fett killed him, got a dent in his helmet during the process and thus became "the bestest bounty hunter" my guess would be that they're going to bring this arc into The Bad Batch, figuring it's too important to just leave on the cutting room floor

From what I've heard, it might get referenced in the book of fett also.

Doesn't make much sense for big players with stakes to hire budget bounty hunters.

I wonder if we’ll see the first gal again at all or if her time on Cameo-Of-The-Week is done.

Fennec Shand? She's introduced as a rising star and active at the time, and we know where she's headed. The previous shows have been good about fleshing out a number of characters and I don't see why the Bad Batch would be any different. I don't doubt there'll be more of her.

Edit: To add the thought, it's not that that necessarily needs to happen. But currently underworld stuff is in theme for the story and even if they go full blown rebels, there's reason for bounty hunters to appear in the story. So there's reason for her to make another appearance, although specifically her involvement isn't required.

This is Star Wars Street, neighbor. You'll take your cameos and like it.

Any strong female characters will remain seated during the mandatory Damsel-in-Distress portion of the plot. (barring a sudden heel-face turn and she helps out due to the insult to her professional rep).
Now they just need to call their contacts to get their allies together for a raid on the secret backup facility, while ramping up for the final showdown with their ex-best friend. And then the bittersweet ending where someone dies and the sequel flag is raised.
Hmmm... and a filler episode, as 8 left is a little too long for that.

IIRC she's refered to in the latest episode as the "contingency plan" with the implication that if the empire ever turns on them etc she's the contingancy plan.

They mentioned previously that the original Boba Fett genetic sample is degrading to the point of being unusable. My money is still on her being some kind of hail mary plan to keep that sample usable. Also, this show had better end with the Kamino Rebellion.

Spoiler:
One could presume, in a very very dark sense, that a female would be a much better source of genetic material than a male. Harvesting her eggs could provide a basis for a mountain of fresh genetic material.


I was predicting that they'd reveal Shand was the the new Bounty Hunter being used as a basis for future clones and that Omega was actually her clone, cause she seemed to have a personal interest in Omega in prior episodes beyond just having a job to do. The most recent episode seems to have shot that down though.

Well, on the upside, that didn't turn out the way I expected and resolved quickly.

On the other hand, that resolved quickly and the show has defaulted back to its standby mode of 'and now what?'
Past time to pick a plot arc already.

I'm still trying to figure out how a clone, which is by definition a perfect genetic copy of another being, could be female when it is a clone of a male being. Makes me suspect the Kaminoans did tamper with Omega's genes in some way. Or that there was some random mutation which they are trying to figure out how it happened.

Clone generally doesn't include the word 'perfect' in its definition. Cloning a female from a male is relatively easy once you can do high level cloning (though potentially disposed to genetic problems) as you just duplicate the X chromosome (so if you have a detrimental recessive trait on the X, the clone is definitely getting it, unless further tampering ensues.). Making a male clone out of a female sample (which has no Y chromosome), would require some... creative work.

But yes, random mutation could also work.

The benefits of a female clone over a male are pretty significant. Even leaving out super creepy stuff, you can go all Dolly the Sheep on the egg cells and produce viable offspring that would be potential candidates for cloning in their own right. Hopefully they won't delve too much into this angle, because it would be super easy to make it overly twisted and dark, and not-at-all appropriate for a pre-teen character.

---
Though, honestly. Alternately they could just find another decent candidate in an entire galaxy. It can't be _that_ hard.
But really it should dawn on them by now that the Empire doesn't give a dead rat carcass about keeping the clone program running regardless. They're krunked no matter what.

I really expect to see some form of Clone Rebellion kicking off in this series.

Maybe not this season though.

After all, if they programmed in Order 66, what other useful things might be programmed alongside it?

Yeah, I think the Clone Rebellion might end up being one of the main 'reasons' for the series, particularly as they said 'kthnx, no' to Rex and what I assumed was the nascent start of the rebellion, or at least Bail and Mon Mothma getting organised.

Basically Bad Batch being 'Whatever happened to the clones?' while Clone Wars was 'what actually happened in the Clone Wars' and Rebels being 'what was the early Rebellion like?'
