... in what way?
Presumably the finale will do one or more of the following: wrap up Crosshair/Batch,
make them decide to be useful people (join the Rebellion)
Someone dies
Set up next season or sequel in some other show.

If you're waiting for some moment of revelation or... awe? I don't think we've been watching the same show.

I'm more thinking the finalle of Season 1 of rebels where all the little subplots seemed to come together and actually build something.

other then that I expect the ending will be more or less what you're suggesting

I'm usually on the 'character development' bandwagon, but yeah, this last episode didn't really establish or consolidate anything that the 'Omega hangs out with Cid and makes her a tonne of money' subplot a few episodes ago didn't do.

They really do need to do more for Tech and for Echo. Right now, there is WAY too much overlap between them and they need to like, individualise them more, highlight their differences.

Or, y'know, kill one off. But it'd be weird to kill off Echo, again.

I'd say they've done a good job of establishing the bond with Omega, Wrecker and Hunter though.


But yeah, I at least, really disliked Rebels until the last couple of episodes of the first season, when the 'incompetent comic relief 80's villain badguy henchmen' got surprise lightsabered, then everything changed and it's one of my favourite pieces of animation now.

Even that is too little, too late. I gave up on Rebels about the time of the 'Erza enrolls in an Imperial School' episode. Fortunately, cartoons don't count. ;-)

Rebels is definitely worth revisiting. The first season is definitely a slog, but what follows is genuinely brilliant.

Stakes! Consequnces! Intrigue!

Agreed on Rebels being worthwhile. It and Clone Wars are a large part of why I felt positive about Star Wars in spite of the sequel trilogy.

I wouldn't call its first season a slog, though. Bad Batch seems a lot slower to get to any kind of point while Rebels season one at least had Ezra's training and the gradual lockdown of Lothal as recurring themes that tied the episodes together and led to the finale.

Like others I hope to see a similar finale happen with the remaining episodes of Bad Batch that tie everything shown so far together, but it's kind of hard to believe there's much to come at this time.

It's just so.... arrrgghhh! The infantile 'hi-jinks' between Erza, the R2-D2 proxie and the Chewie proxie have me grinding my teeth. The villains of the show make 'the old caretaker' from Scooby-Do, Where Are You? look like Hannibal Lecter, and Erza... he's so grating even Yoda would've shot him in the back of the head.

I'd almost argue you can just start with the season 1 finale and go from there. The characters grow so much past that point that there's very little you can't pick up on just from the archetypes they play up to that point.

I'd argue the infantile hi-jinks between Ezra, Chopper and Zeb are an important part of the experience because

Spoiler:
they grow up. OK, Chopper doesn't, but that's why we love Chopper. But the theme of loss of youthful exuberance/innocence is part of the journey and the changing tone throughout the show relies on the large distance between starting point and end point.


Your points aren't wrong at all, but it gets better and at least to a degree I believe the show is more effective for starting out the way it does.

Right, episode 14.

A good bit more like it, as we’re seeing galactic developments.

Kind of funny given that the original idea of the stormtrooper armor was that you couldn't tell any of them apart.

Variants are cool, but...

To be fair, early mark of Stormtrooper armour.

I think the ORIGINAL idea was to make toys to sell. In that regard nothing has changed.

Quite the opposite.

The success of the movies spawned entirely unexpected toy sales.

Star Wars revolutionised the toy and tie in market.

If you’ve got Netflix, watch the relevant Toys That Made Us episode.

The ones that looked like Clone Commandos were Clone Commandos. The proto-Stormtroopers looked like regular Stormtroopers but with a heavier skull cap.

Literally what I wanted to see 7 episodes ago. Pretty good, though.
Except the rescuee could have been useful or relevant somehow. (beyond 'was probably a specific clone in season Y episode XX of clone wars, obviously.')

Yeah, this was ultimately just another 'Introduce a Rebels character' episode.

I'm curious if the shutting down of Kamino will still be a battle (as it was in the old EU) or if killing the Prime Minister was all they're going to cover of it. No idea if this has already been dealt with in the new continuity, as I haven't been keeping up with anything outside of the movies and tv series...

There is clone commando armour AND early mk TK armour.

Rebels ALSO used this design of TK armour.

As for the toys thing, yeah. After the big-boy toy companies knocked them back, they reached out to a small toy company Kenner and pretty much pulled them into the big league.

You mean, introduce ANOTHER "Rebels" character.

I prefer the term "post-foreshadowing".

the early mark TK armor IIRC is based off ralph mcquarrie concept art, so.. no suprise there.

as for introducing a rebels character...... umm
Spoiler:
gregor first appered in clone wars. namely the episode "missing in action"


not sure I agree with those who say nothing happened. this is clearly setting up for the big season finalle. and it's pretty obvious what's going to happen.

[/spoiler]Omega will hatch a plan to rescue Hunter, possiably because crosshair will use him as bait for a trap, she'll call in all the various friends etc they've made over the past season to make her plan work.. etc.. [/spoiler]

if this sounds familer BTW thats because this is more or less how rebels season 1 ended

Not sure I saw that one. I think I wound up missing a chunk in the middle somewhere.

Although I did just start over again today, to introduce my daughters to the series, so I'll no doubt get to whatever I missed before too long.

Seems it’s another Star Wars Lego effort, which I have mixed feelings about.

Its What if, but with Star Wars and legos.
And Halloween themed, apparently.

Darkest Night: Lego Wars edition? (yes, yes, DC special event, not marvel, but still...)

Despite my misgivings on Season 1, I’ll be here for Season 2.

Part masochism, part genuine recognition the animated SW stuff usually takes time to find it’s feet then gets really good.

I guess it’s kinda like running a TTRPG for a new mix of players. Got to experiment some to figure it all out.
