The Bad Batch Episode 1 "Aftermath" Synopsis
Series Created by: Jennifer Corbett, Dave Filoni
Episode Written by: Jennifer Corbett, Dave Filoni
Episode Directed By: Steward Lee, Saul Ruiz, Nathaniel Villanueva
Separatists are pushed to the brink as Republic forces continue to win on battlefields across the galaxy.
But while assisting Jedi Knight Depa Billaba and her padawan Caleb Dume on Kaller against the Separatists , Clone Captain Grey receives Order 66 and kills Billaba. The Bad Batch overhears the order, but except for Crosshair, they feel no compulsion to execute it and their leader Hunter lets Caleb escape.
Back on Kamino, the Bad Batch encounters Omega, a young female clone who is genetically as unorthodox as they are. Admiral Tarkin later arrives to evaluate whether the clone army is of any more use to the newly formed Empire, and after receiving Crosshair's report on Kaller, he sends the Bad Batch to Onderon to eliminate a group of alleged insurgents and thus test their loyalties.
When the "insurgents" are revealed as fugitives from the Empire led by Saw Gerrera, the Bad Batch decides to go rogue, but are captured when returning to Kamino for Omega. Crosshair, who is still under the influence of his inhibitor chip, is reprogrammed by Tarkin to turn against his squadmates, and the Bad Batch and Omega are forced to flee Kamino without him.
Looking for friends to help them in their time of turmoil they set course for planet J19.The Clone Wars have ended. A period of Civil War has begun.
