Hunter, Wrecker, and the rest of the team start to execute their rescue plan but are met with a few obstacles. 

Synopsis: In Flash Strike, Hunter, Wrecker, and the rest of the team start to execute their rescue plan but are met with a few obstacles.


The Story

Picking up from where last week left off. The Bad Batch and Rampart have hitched a ride on an imperial ship to get them to Tantis base. However, Hemlock is very much aware that the Batch are coming for Omega and is taking steps to make things harder for them.

While, Hunter, Wrecker, Crosshair, and Rampart make their way through the jungle to get to Tantis base. Echo is making his way to the base by posing as a Stormtrooper, but soon gets spotted by Dr. Karr who agrees to help him and the others rescue Omega and the other children.


Voice Acting

Noshir Dalal continues to provide some fun moments as the cowardly Rampart. I loved the exchanges between him and Hunter where he has a go at the Batch and lets them know that he still sees them as defective clones. I also liked the brief exchange between Rampart and Crosshair where Crosshair says that he has changed.



A really strong episode that is building up to what might well be one hell of a finale. I really enjoyed the scenes where Echo was sneaking his way onto Tantis base and how that built toward his meeting with Dr. Karr.

The exchanges between Rampart and The Bad Batch are a lot of fun as its self-evident that Rampart’s presence on the mission is a liability, which is becoming the source of some genuinely funny moments. I also loved the scenes in which Omega is trying to work out how to escape while the other children cover for her.

Overall. A really strong episode with some fantastic moments. I look forward to seeing how they get Omega out of Tantis base.
