Synopsis: In The Return, Tensions rise as our heroes navigate new dynamics on a dangerous mission.

 

The Story

Having rejoined the team in last week’s episode. Omega and Crosshair spend a little time settling back into a routine, but Crosshair, who is still struggling with his hand is finding it difficult to adapt given that he betrayed his brothers and joined the Empire way back in season one. When Echo arrives the team is keen to get as much intelligence about the base on Tantiss. Aside from what Omega remembers all they have is an electronic pad that Nala Se had been using, but they need access to an imperial console so they can decrypt it. To that end, Crosshair provides details of an imperial base that is undermanned and easy for them to access. But things do not work out to be as easy as they’d thought.

 

The Acting

The Return has somewhat of a smaller cast than usual with Dee Bradley Baker providing all the voices for The Bad Batch while Michelle Ang continued to voice Omega. The only other cast member listed on IMDB was Ben Diskin as the droid AZI-3. 

As always the acting performances are solid throughout this episode.

 

Overall

Another solid episode, which brings this years story arc a little more into focus as The Bad Batch set about looking at the bigger picture of their mission, which looks like it could well see them eventually looking to take down the base on Tantiss. It was great to see Echo make a return to the group as I’d kind of been missing that particular character from the group. Tech gets a quick mention, but as far as we are concerned he fell to his death in the last season while enabling the rest of Clone Force 99 to escape.
