The Bad Speculation

Recommended Posts

I figured we could use a spot to speculate where this show is headed to next. We have 16 episodes and we’ve seen almost all the trailer footage now. We are still expecting to see Rex and some fight scenes which are in the shorter trailers.

I’m guessing we’re going to see a storyline about the chips and/or Wrecker. I bet that’s where Rex and possibly Ahsoka will come into play.

The Empire has to exterminate the Kaminoans at some point. Most of the clones will resist and die there.

Wow, I didn’t realize that, but it makes sense. Wow, I wonder if we’ll get battle scenes there. Makes you wonder if the Batch turns off chips in other clones to mount a potentially significant but ultimately unsuccessful battle there. Makes you wonder if Rex and/or Ahsoka play a part more then just telling the Bad Batch about the chips and how to turn them off.

So definitely getting the Empire and Crosshair on Bracca next week? Just in time for the mid-season to start. Wonder if they’ll get the chip out of Crosshair bc they know how to AND they have the tools to do it. I bet we see a spaceship chase through all of Bracca’s shipyards.

Why do junkyard ships still have power? That would be the first thing to salvage.

Crosshair might need skull surgery now... the Kaminoans / Omega could secretly take out the chip

So we’re definitely going back to Kamino. With Omega and Crosshair in the same place, is she going to try to get him out of there? And is 99 going directly there too? They’re struggling with just the four of them, they need help if they’re going to actually rescue Omega and hopefully Crosshair. Hunter is going to be a clone to be reckoned with-leaving behind two members of the 99 now.

I definitely don’t want them to kill Crosshair off now-I want to see him living with what happened to him. What a great redemption story for him. I hate sacrifice plays.

If the original hunchback 99 is still alive, he will help

At some point Rex leaves the rebellion. What if its the slaughter of more clones at Kamino? Maybe 99 hatches a plan to try and save Omega and Crosshair, recruits Rex’s rebel cell but its a massive loss?

I can’t imagine one taking the loss of Omega lightly, but I also can’t imagine them in any shape to mount a rescue either. At least, a rescue by themselves.

If only they knew someone with Jedi skills...

Filoni modelled Mando on For A Few Dollars More; unfortunately, Batchers are approaching The Wild Bunch territory...

Maybe getting slaughtered is what solidifies the Rebellion.

Looks like showdown on Kamino is a non-starter since nobody alive will be there... wherever Rex was calling from must be ground zero...

If there is no plan for Season 2, The Batch dies in a blaze of glory.. Omega and Cid will get a Casablanca spinoff where Rebel & Empire deserters warily co-exist in the second most wretched hive of scum and villainy.

This show could go so many different ways. Everyone could die. The Batch could be captured one by one. They could reach out to so many people for help. Makes me wonder how long the finale would be-long like the premiere or short like all the other episodes.

My bet would have been the Batch being captured one by one, with Omega being the last girl standing. I would have guesses a trade between Omega and Rampart, but he hates the clones. He wants the Batch working for him so that theory is out the window.

Echo could reach out to Rex for help. I would love something like Rebels were a throw away episode had something in it that was key to rescuing Hunter. Shand would probably help the Batch if she was paid. The Martinez sisters seemed to like Omega. The Syndullas are busy with their planet. So many open threads with everyone they helped…

Could we get big cameos too? Vader? Ahsoka? Maul? Mandalorians? In the universe’s smallest galaxy, anything is possible in finales right?

Agree that anything is possible, but there ARE smaller Galaxies out there...

Rex has problems of his own... He called The Batch for help...

But Rex could put them in contact with someone who could help. Probably not Ahsoka, maybe Wolffe? Saw?

I'd love to see Ahsoka but it seems doubtful although a Jedi would come in handy. But I think that's exactly why we won't see her (or Obi-Wan for that matter) - this show is not about the Force and Force wielders. Reaching out to someone they helped along the season makes more sense even though most of these folks are probably not too keen on taking on the Empire. Cad Bane and Fenec Shand might be willing if the payment is okay - which makes me wonder if the bounty on Omega is still active. Other than that only Saw comes to mind.

What kind of cliffhanger is coming? Rex & Gregor have guaranteed plot armour. Cid & her henchmen do not. Nala Se might hijack a transport and rescue The Batch.

I’m wondering if Nala Se still gets her hands on Omega. Now that the Prime Minster is out of the way, she can go back to experiments and not worry about Omega being killed. Maybe we’ll see Shand again with a cliffhanging kidnapping at the end of the episode.

I’m wondering if we get a storyline where Crosshair still has the chip, they get it out and Crosshair still leaves them because he knows they didn’t come back for him. I wondered if Crosshair and Shand join forces at some point because of her impressive long distance shooting skills.

Mandalorian canon confirms that Fennec was an assassin for numerous crime lords- including Jabba - before the Rebellion. Maybe Crosshair was her partner for a while... ETA: before she got tired of sharing contracts and killed him

I bet he does. The Kiner Brothers who wrote the music for the show tweeted near the release of the show that they were working on the finale music and it was making them cry. What’s more heart wrenching then Crosshair choosing to leave his brothers because they left him?

But I also wonder if Echo has one robotic foot out the door too-he seems ready to fight with Rex, especially after rescuing Gregor. What if the Batch fractures and next season is about bringing everyone back together?

I was close-Crosshair did choose the Empire over the squad. I’m glad no one died. Anyone up for season two speculation?

There was an interview where Jen Corbett admits Crosshair didn’t have his chip anymore and it should be pretty obvious when that happens. I’m guessing it was after his bout with the Venator’s engine. The Syndulla arc showed he was different, he didn’t kill Howser for his turncoat choice.

I’m speculating he’ll get a Kallus storyline, where he finally realizes the Empire doesn’t care for him, along with a couple of storylines where he butts up against 99, where they show they still care. I hope they actually show Crosshair with the Empire next season, unlike this season where we’re told his chip was removed by the writers and didn’t actually see it.

I’m also hoping we see 99 finally join the rebellion. It would be kinda cool to see a different side of the rebellion. In Rebels, Tarkin talked about how other cells of the Rebellion were killing during their attacks-unlike the crew of the Ghost who tended to stun more when they were on Lothal. It would be interesting to see the start of the rebellion with Rex and Gregor.

The Batch gets involved with Rogue One prequel events... maybe set up a tangential connection to Cassian Andor live action series

That’s what I was thinking too. Cassian would be really young right? I think he said in Rogue One all he’s ever known is war and being a spy. Makes me wonder if his parents were involved in the rebellion too. Man, when I watched Rebels I really thought we were going to see the Battle of Scarif but wouldn’t it be wild if 99 was there and that’s why we don’t see them later? I kinda hope they don’t, bc just like Rebels, I like seeing other rebellion battles. On the other hand…I do like seeing animated moments on the shows.

Wonder if we’ll get any time jumps. I hope we don’t next season, but maybe eventually see a jump to age Omega a bit or get us closer to the Andor/Rebels timeline.
