    Can we start another thread that contains spoilers for this show? All of these spoiler tags are annoying.

    Fantastic stuff! I enjoyed every second of this episode and now I'm anticipating the next episode even more than usual. Hyped!

    Perhaps we should start spoiler topics for each individual episode as they dop, like we've done in the past for Mando?

    I don't want to sound obnoxious, I work with allot of women and they're constantly offering me food. I politely say no thank you with a smile :D, I'm drinking my water and I ordered a salad for lunch. :D

    I watch how they eat. Fried breaded meat, pasta with creamy sauces, sandwiches with huge soft potato buns, extra large coffees loaded with sugar and milk, soda with every meal, and they're constantly sitting down. It's a chore for them to get up and do simple things.

    On the other hand, a co-worker of mine, she wakes up at 4am goes to the gym, fast during the day, and also enjoys a good salad with no dressing. she is very attractive and doesn't need help arresting a perp (we are law enforcement officers, btw).

    Women in their 20's and 30's constantly want to date me, but I have to warn them I'm 52... OMG really...:eek::oops: HAHA :D

    So for me, its not odd for a 57 year old woman ( Ming-Na Wen, Fennec) to look attractive and perform stunts that a normal 57 year old woman would never dream of doing... just to keep it on topic

    Work-out and keep healthy... stay away from the junk food...

    Now accepting apologies from anyone who insisted to me that Filoni's TCW test footage was proof Cad Bane was dead in canon :p

    Thanks for all you do.
    That was sweet! Old "Angel Eyes" returns. Finally some possible resolution to Cad Bane. The 1st person POV scene with Hunter was awesome. Also nothing like a proton torpedo to the face that will darken your day.
    I will speculate that we will get more bounty hunters competing for the Omega bounty, possibly Aurra Sing, Boba Fett, etc.. Shand should make another appearance IMO as well but she may have missed her chance.

    Definitely, that first person shot was really cool! Reminds me of that Kallus episode in Rebels (and Republic Commando, of course.


    Yeah, I'd imagine we'll see the seedier side of the galaxy soon. Fett would be interesting, and maybe we will eventually see his confrontation with Cad Bane, played out in a little bit of a different era this time.

    I imagine Shand will return. I thought her part in the series would be bigger, but maybe I was wrong.

    Bounty Lost was another alright episode.

    It's a little disapointing that they resolved the Bane-captured-Omega storybeat in a singel episode, which, unless there are further developments down the line, renders the Bane thing rather pointless. That said, there were some interesting story & character developments in this one regarding Omega's origins and worth, and who wants her for what purpose. Also, my predictions that Shand was hired to keep Omega from falling into bounty hunter/Lama Su, thereby making Shand a good gall in the show, turns out to be correct; it's nice to guess right for once ;)

    I liked the visuals of the wrecked city and the moldy cloning tanks were obviously ment to remind us of the Snoke-tanks in TRoS. Other than that, the episode was a bit unneccessary. Unfortunately, you can skip directly from ep.7-10 without missing anything essential.

    I wonder what the show will be about now... If Omega isn't going to be captured by bounty hunters at some point (="darkest hour"), then what is this show going to try and resolve in the end? And if Bane eventually manages to re-capture Omega anyway, then what was the point of this episode? I'm confused but still intrigued. Also, the show looks amazing!

    Crosshair putting off some major Dengar vibes. Granted, only the head dress/bandage & I guess armor match. In doing two minutes worth of Dengar research I see there's no way the two could be the same person. Still, it's an odd choice, visually. (I didn't Spoiler this because Crosshair was seen this way in last week's episode.)

    Fun episode with great action and moments but Omega..
    getting the upper hand a lot and escaping on her own almost ruined it for me. I hate that type of kid trope!

    I’d say the ‘ultra-competent mercenary who inexplicably has a comically inept sidekick’ is a way way worse trope than anything the Omega character displays.

    On a different note: The character named 'Omega' has a counterpart named 'Alpha' . . . how cute :)

    I disagree but it's cool because I've enjoyed every episode, am enjoying the show as a whole and do like Omega so much more than I expected but just didn't like certain stuff with her in this episode. As for the other stuff, that trope is still cool on this case.

    Really kind of shocking that they killed Taun We. Almost kind of disappointing that they didn’t kill Cad Bane. I’m sorry but he has outlived his usefulness.

    A lot of interest and excitement, but also a lot of plot holes:
    -Kaminoans are expert cloners. How could they possibly not have any backup of Jango? Depending on how cloning works, the backup might have to be an actual living person, but still… really?
    -How can Omega be an exact clone of Jango? Unless she is transgender, this doesn’t make sense.
    -The show seems to imply that whatever the Kaminoans want to do to Omega would probably kill her - but the cloning process didn’t hurt Jango at all. Even if there is some other process they are planning that is more dangerous than cloning, couldn’t they just clone Omega, do the process to the clone, and return Omega to the Bad Batch? Then basically everybody gets everything they wanted without any fighting.

    Something about the soundtrack in Episode 8 that I noticed. During the quick draw battle, I heard the four note "danger motif" that James Horner was fond of using. Nice little callback, there. :)

    Were I to select a getaway vehicle it would not be one of those slow, lumbering tanks. They make the bombers from TLJ look nimble.
