    Episode 1.08!!
    Reunion

    -------------------------------------

    Discussion of New Episodes - Rules
    (1) One of the mods will post each week's episode thread a few days before it airs on Disney+.

    (2) Discussion in the actual episode thread will be limited to that specific episode, NOT future episodes; past episodes may be referenced.

    (3) The Bad Batch episodes air on Friday on Disney+ at 12am PST/PDT. Anyone who shares plot details about an episode before then must use spoiler tags. After that folks will begin discussing their reviews and thoughts which will likely include spoilers. To anyone concerned about being spoiled before watching the episode it is your responsibility to avoid the thread until you have had your chance to view.

    (4) Spoilers like character deaths, appearances, and major plot details must be spoiler tagged in the new episode thread prior to the episode television air date.

    (5) Do not post any preview video clips from the individual episode in the episode threads.

    (6) Official episode commentary may be posted in this episode thread.

    (7) Do not discuss future episodes in here.

    (8) Reviews for each episode may be posted once they have aired. One of the mods will add a grading poll to that episode's discussion thread.

    Terrifying title! It puts fear in me like Dunkin Donuts just up and going completely out of business.

    I actually like the title. Either BB has to put up rules on popcorn (joke) or Crosshair has some dark fun.

    Or ... the BB learns about the rules of early rebels.

    It puts me in fear like the mall near-by going out of business and shutting down.

    With a title like that, I do wonder if
    we will see the destruction/decommissioning of the cloning facilities on Kamino.

    And I wonder if, with a title like that one,
    we'll see Omega journeying to find an embittered Hunter alone on an island where she'll try to convince him to fight against the baddies and he'll just sit around drinking milk while monologuing about how it's time for the Bad Batch to end.

    Or maybe the Batch will get involved in a tediously long space chase while two of them take Gonky to some ritzy planet on a fetch quest that doesn't amount to a whole lot.

    I wonder if they'll explain the origins of Dr. Pershing's organization, and how it's connected to Kamino.

    I suspect we will learn about Omega's origins, maybe.

    All those are good inquires. How about will we learn if Boba ever had an implant? Omega's answer on why she doesnt have a chip is the key.
    Should be a good episode. Really liked Ep.7 so looking forward to this in a few hours.

    - Give it up, the thread title's never going to be right.

    - A long awaited reappearance after almost a decade in canon exile... TODO 360!

    - Seriously, glad they didn't go with the obvious (Boba.)

    - So, did Fennec Shand get scooped or was her client a different party?

    - This may also mean another unaired arc has bit the canon dust.

    - Strange little aside about what the war was like. I assume this is foreshadowing for later as it got cut off quite quickly.

    - Also, keeping the scrappers from scouring the armory was apparently the reason for the otherwise unnecessary dianoga in the prior episode.

    - I think they should have left the last scene for the next episode. Not that anyone would think the show would take out Hunter so soon but why not let the mood ride?

    I think it’s probably time to quit while you’re ahead and stop putting the names of the episode in the title until you actually know what the title is

    Onto the episode…
    Great episode again! I really did think that the other bounty hunter was going to be Boba, so I full on marked out when Bane and Todo appeared!

    I liked the use of first person at the end when Hunter was recovered by the rest of the team

    Wowsers!

    That is a cameo I can get behind and man, that came at a cost for everyone, such a great episode.

    I love the kind of Vadering of Crosshair.

    And man, we are heading to the Kamino war baby!
