The Bad Batch find themselves cornered in the scrap yard.

The scrapyard on Bracca was originally created for the video game Jedi: Fallen Order, as the place where padawan Cal Kestis was hiding out after Order 66.

Bounty Hunter Cad Bane first appeared in The Clone Wars as an antagonist who proved a tough foe even for the Jedi.

Cad Bane is such a great bad guy. Unreasonably excited to see him show up.

I'm rewatching The Clone Wars (along with the extremely good, better than the subject matter would indicate, A More Civilised Age podcast), and just saw Cad Bane's introduction in season 1. He's such a competent bad guy in a way you rarely get in this sort of show - usually they're bumbling, stupid, over-confident, or undone by the plucky underdog. Cad Bane is none of these.

Hmm, smells like fricaseed sniper in here. That’s what you get for acting like a crazy ex, Crosshair!

I honestly thought Hunter was dead there for a minute, which would have taken this show to The Wire levels of greatness.

I love how literal Tech is, I wonder if he does that on purpose. I’d listen to his podcast.

Working the pride colors into the SW logo at the beginning is a nice touch.

Lol I'm the kind of Star Wars idiot that was like "CAD FUCKEN BANE, YEAHHH!" when he showed up as my husband rolled his eyes. Love that guy! Always happy to see him in his dumb hat and random western regalia.

Now tell me, where is Hondo? For I much desire to see his dumb ass on this show too
