    Episode 3.11!!
    Point of No Return

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

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

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

    (3) Discussion in the actual episode thread will be limited to that specific episode, NOT future episodes; past episodes may be referenced. Speculation based on released material is permitted.

    (4) The Bad Batch episodes air on Wednesday on Disney+. Anyone who shares plot details about an episode before then must use spoiler tags. After that folks will begin discussing their reviews and thoughts without tags 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.

    (5) All leaks and rumors must be spoiler tagged until they are either proven or disproven.

    (6) 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.

    No Return? That's a blatant lie. I half expected Hunter to look into the camera and say, "I'll be back."

    Point of No Return? Well, I did not expect Colonel Gascon and the D-Squad to appear. Now that's a cameo that makes sense.

    I mean how cool was it to have a Shakespearean comedy? Having Hunter as a space version of Hamlet on Dathomir with Lady MacOmega and King Crosshair was a mash up for the ages. Their philosophical debate about what it means to return or not to return may well end up being to Star Wars what Shawshank Redemption was to movies.

    I don't think it was a good idea to have Hunter and Wrecker watch the whole time though

    Well, its in part a expermental treatment to help fix Crosshair's hand. Turns out, Pabu was originally settled as some sex cult retreat but there was some zoning issues. Point of No Return is referring to Phee trying to deal with the Imperial Zoning Commission over it. Turns out, its so ill run that the Emperior has issues with them and he sent Vader out to pay some parking tickets.

    Meanwhile, Gonky and AZ are trying to open a Casino with Blackjack and Hookers. Omega is dealing for the house.

    Hemlock is busy trying to get the DVR on Tantiss fixed because Scorch can't get a hold of Fixer and Hemlock really needs his Soaps.

    I'mma guess in this episode the Batch will reach a point from which there is no coming back.

    That does fit with the previous discussion. One can't unscrew a shrew.

    What another episode! Goodness me these two knocked it out of the park!

    That was outstanding. Just so tragic all round, absolutely smashed.

    So was Omega using the force at the end?

    And which was the third clone and what was he not to be harmed?

    Is Clone X…Crosshair’s clone?

    Would be better if at least someone died. This show is really afraid of ramping up the stakes and tension. Really feels toothless. Take the first film as an example: the Empire killed all the Jawas and Luke's aunt and uncle to get to him. Here, the Empire destroyed some boats. Real scary.
    It was well directed and the music was good and it looked good, but the plot happened pretty much as I thought it would happen, nothing unexpected whatsoever. Quite predictable that Omega would be taken again.

    I didn’t watch yet, but if nobody died I’m kind of getting sick of the Twitter crybaiting from the showrunners.

    “I’m telling you, get ready for this one, I physically couldn’t handle reading the storyboards and had to change my pants!”

    *episode proceeds to be The Bad Batch fighting a giant manatee with a top hat and mustache*

    (they literally suggested people call out of work to process these episodes)

    Tech dying didn’t even really hit me very hard, not like Kanan’s death or anything. The cast is essentially the DK Crew from Donkey Kong 64, I can’t get THAT emotionally invested into them.
