Bounty Lost

Synopsis: In ‘Bounty Lost’. The Bad Batch Embark on a rescue mission to get Omega back. Meanwhile, Cad Bane seeks payment from the Kaminoans.

 

The Story

Picking the story up from where last week left off. Cad Bane has kidnapped Omega leaving a wounded Hunter behind. While Bane gets away and sets a course to meet his Kaminoan contact. Hunter and the Batch try to pursue but are forced to abandon their pursuit in order to escape from Crosshair and his troops.

Meanwhile, on Cad Banes ship. Omega begins to work out a means of escape and puts her plan into action. As Cad Banes ship lands at the arranged meeting point Omega manages to briefly escape and make contact with Hunter and the Batch. But things get messy when Cad Bane and Fennec Shand begin to fight over who should claim the bounty on Omega.

 

The Voice Acting

Michelle Ang puts in a solid performance this week as Omega who begins to show her tricky side. The scene in which she manipulates Cad Bane’s droid into letting her out of her cell is nicely performed.

We also get brilliant performances from Corey Burton and Ming-Na Wen as Cad Bane and Fennec Shand have themselves the mother of all battles to decide who should have custody of Omega. Indeed, it appears that both Bounty Hunters are working for different Kaminoans.

 

Overall

‘Bounty Lost’ delivers the goods on various counts. We get some great action sequences from Cad Bane and Fennec Shand. As well as solid acting. But most of all we learn a little about why Omega is so special to the Kaminoans. She apparently is damn near the perfect clone of Boba Fett, which can only make things more interesting as the series moves forward.

Overall. This was a nicely paced episode that sows some interesting plot points that can be taken advantage of further down the line.
