Bad Batch Composers Confirm Old Omega In Season 2
With all the hubbub that constantly surrounds star wars, whether it’s announcing new series or long-awaited projects, it can sometimes be difficult to step back and take a breather. During those quiet moments, memories of other recent spots in the growing franchise can come flooding back like a fever dream. For example, there are probably at least a few people who almost forgot about the Disney Plus series. The bad lot until that exact moment.
There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. star wars always has something new on the way, after all. It would be unfair to expect someone’s brain to simply keep track of it all. But now is definitely a good time to focus on those dusty recesses of the mind. The bad lot turn again. It turns out that a popular theory about The bad lot Season 2 has just been confirmed, and it could have some interesting implications going forward.
In a recent charity edition of the YouTube podcast The Convor Callthe composers behind The bad lot (as well as The Clone Wars and star wars rebels) made an appearance to briefly talk about what to expect from the series going forward. Although they made a conscious effort to hold back as much as possible, they were able to offer the smallest bit of information regarding new fan-favorite character Omega. Turns out, the next time audiences see her, she’ll be “a little older,” according to songwriters Sean and Dean Kiner. However, they made sure to make it clear that his age jump won’t be “by much.”
This basically confirms the widely held speculation that Season 2 would begin with a time jump after the events of the suspense. Bad lot season 1 finale. Omega, Jango Fett’s only female clone, was barely a preteen in the first season, so even the smallest time jump would give her the opportunity for significant growth, especially considering of his thirst for learning. Not to mention the rather rambunctious nature of the titular Bad Batch itself, whose penchant for danger would easily work as a crash course in survival for anyone in their company.
The bad lot saw a small group of “flawed” clone troopers band together as their own unit, turning their respective individual traits that deviate from the intended pattern into advantages that allow them to work as a special ops team. Shortly after Emperor Palpatine executed Order 66, The Bad Batch realized their flaws allowed them to break free from the genetic programming that forced the other clones to attack and wipe out the Jedi Order. As they escaped their lives as Imperial soldiers with this knowledge, they also brought Omega with them, who herself was considered a flaw of being a female clone.
The time jump between Seasons 1 and 2 will likely provide an opportunity for the entire team to grow as a unit. They definitely should now that they’ve made a clean break from the Empire, and knowing that their old comrade Crosshair is still hot on their heels essentially forces them to think up new tactics to stay one step ahead. Omega proved throughout the first season that she had become a capable member of the team. So with even about a year of experience under her belt, plus rumors that Omega may soon be moving into live action, Season 2 could present viewers with a real evolution for her.
