Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 3 Spoilers
The upcoming episode of ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ is titled ‘Replacements.’ Episode 3 will likely expand upon the helpful nature of the Bad Batch as they make their way through the galaxy.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 2 Recap
The second episode of ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ is titled ‘Cut and Run.’ It follows the Clone Force 99 sans Crosshair with the addition of Omega. They land on the Outer Rim planet Saleucami. There they meet an old acquaintance, the former clone trooper, Cut Lawquane. The Empire is working on preparing a database of the galaxy’s residents and tightened their policies regarding the use of Imperial currency and registration for chain codes.
As a deserter, Cut fears that the Empire will punish him and his family if they discover him. He is planning to shift his family in the further reaches of space where the Empire cannot track them. Tech devises a plan to steal the memory disks of devices containing the database and copy the chain codes for their personal use. While stealing the chain codes, Omega gets caught up in an attack by a Nexus.
She later manages to steal the chain code disks in time, and Tech modifies them so that Cut and his family can board a public transport that will carry them to safety. Hunter realizes that Omega will always be in danger if she remains with the Bad Batch and asks Cut to take her along with them. However, Omega refuses to leave the group.
