Return Of The Zillo Beast | “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” Season 2: Episode 11 “Metamorphosis” Review

Fresh off their liberation of a mining planet, the Bad Batch (Dee Bradley Baker) get a tip from Cid (Rhea Perlman) of a crashed ship, offering them a 50 percent cut of its cargo. Unfortunately, it has a monster on board and it ate the ship’s crew.

We then see the facility Nala Se (Gwendoline Yeo), the head scientist of Kamino, is being held by the Empire. The head of the facility, Dr. Hemlock, tries to get her cooperation, with no luck. Hemlock is dressed in the same uniform Dr. Pershing was wearing in “The Mandalorian,” which is presumably the Empire’s cloning division and he is responsible for the cloning of the beast the Bad Batch face.

It’s an exact copy of the Zillo Beast — a creature that grows exponentially by consuming energy — that rampaged across Coruscant in “The Clone Wars.” This makes it very hard for the Bad Batch to neutralize it before it heads to a town and they are ultimately unsuccessful — the Empire has to get it under control.

There is presumably more to this beast than meets the eye, as Sheev Palpatine ordered its cloning when he was chancellor and wants to use it to develop weapons from its genetic material. It’s also left alive, so I think it’s likely we’ll see it again in a future episode.

This was a petty standard “Bad Batch” episode. It’s not one of the series’ best, but it hits all the points it needs to.

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” Season 2: Episode 11 “Metamorphosis” gets a 7/10

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
