Trouble In Space Greece | “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” Season 2: Episode 13 “Pabu” Review

Coming into this episode the Bad Batch (all voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) are still ghosting Cid (Rhea Perlman), but in the meantime have been doing missions for her friend, Phee Genoa (Wanda Sykes). In fact, after one mission, she brings them to her home of Pabu, where she’s never brought Cid.

Pabu is basically space Greece in aesthetic, though it’s essentially a huge village on a mountain. Tremors normally occur here and seeing as we need some excitement, a large one happens, causing a tsunami. The Bad Batch must now rescue the villagers and Omega (Michelle Ang), who was out at sea with a new friend when the tremors started happening.

Overall, this was an OK filler episode, but it was one of the weakest of the series. The episode gives the Bad Batch a potential new home with Phee away from Cid, who has severely damaged her relationship with the Bad Batch and it is on her to mend. Pabu could potentially give them a more peaceful life, being a place that is under-the-radar from the Empire and is full of people looking to start fresh, which might be better overall for Omega.

Still, with three episodes left and Omega very much at large for the Empire because of her connection to Kaminoan cloner Nala Se — plus Crosshair’s murky fate — I doubt the Bad Batch’s happy ending will be near.

I predict that Crosshair is being converted into a dark trooper — the droids we see in “The Mandalorian” Season 2 — as their first series were apparently cyborg clones. He’ll probably look a bit like Echo — who was also installed with cybernetics against his will in order to be a weapon that can be controlled — complete with a new inhibitor chip. But I don’t think he’ll be completely compliant and will be able to break free of the Empire’s programming, as he is an irregular clone.

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” Season 2: Episode 13 “Pabu” gets a 6.5/10

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
