Hello everyone, welcome to the Matta critic. This is Matthew Hemenway. In this episode of Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 9 that is currently on Disney+ done by Lucasfilm. The name of this episode is called the Crossing. I will go over several topics and point out several Easter eggs in this episode. I hope this episode inspires to Read, Watch, and Learn. This episode will deal with the team losing Echo and Omega having a tough time dealing with it while on a mission to retrieve a mineral that is valuable and explosive. I will give you my rating at the end of the review.
Please consider checking out my Facebook page to get links and check out the posts from YouTube, and Patreon. I have been posting links to my blog on my Facebook page, that you would want to check out at www.mattacritic.com/blog. The blog will have the written portion of the review as well as the YouTube video included there. Now on with the review.
The episode begins with the team landing on a planet that is rundown, and it will involve going on a dangerous mission which involves a mine that has a mineral that is valuable, but explosive in nature. Hunter will ask Wrecker and Omega to be on the lookout for thieves that are known to steal things like spaceships.
Omega tells Hunter that she can handle the responsibility of guarding the ship and being the lookout. Hunter tells her that it is not a clever idea to leave you alone to do it. He insists that Wrecker helps to guard the ship while he and Tech figure out where this mineral is that they need to mine for Cid. This is a mine that Cid bought, and she wants them to mine this mineral out that is valuable and explosive in nature.
Tech later asks Omega to come in the mine as they know that they need her size to help them mine the mineral that is in the mine. This leaves Wrecker to guard the mine and the ship to make sure that no one traps them in the mine or have someone steal the ship. There is someone lurking around as that individual was watching them land the ship and looks to steal the ship. While they are in the mine, that individual does that. Wrecker was not paying attention like he should have. Omega, Tech, and Hunter get out of the mine, and they hear the person taking the ship. Hunter and Tech are upset at Wrecker for the ship being taken. They have every right to be upset with Wrecker as he failed at his job for not preventing that from happening.
They will later have to figure out how to get off the planet from there. It will be challenging to say the least. There is a storm that is coming that is dangerous and it will be bad if it gets to them. They later must get into another mine and mineral explodes after that happens and traps them in that mine.
Omega is having a tough time with Echo being gone because he was more than just a squad member to her, he was a family member. Like she would have told Hera when she was in the last season of this series, they are my brothers. To her, Echo was her brother, and she misses him. It does hurt when those we love leave, but as Tech says that is life, and we must move on. Tech upset Omega earlier, but he later points out that it is hard for him. He just processes emotions differently. He reminds her that Crosshairs was part of this squad, but he is on a different path than the rest of them. Echo is doing what he thinks he must do. Echo pointed out to Hunter in the 1st episode of this season that they should be doing more to stop the Empire and that is why he went with Captain Rex to help with his mission in doing just that. They must get out of the mine by using the same mineral that is in this mine to get them out.
As not to be revealed, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of this episode and set up Episode 10 of this season.
I will give you, my rating. I give Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 9, a 10 out 10. It was fun, but it was engaging. The mines on this planet that the Bad Batch went to along with Omega, were very realistic. A lot of mines are caves on Earth, and they have water ways that were like what the viewer saw in this episode. The Bad Batch will have to figure out a solution to get off the planet with their ship gone since it was stolen. What does the Bad Batch and Omega have to do? Who did they contact to get help to get them off the planet? Was Echo in communication with the team or not? Is it who we thought they were going to contact? If you know the answer, please leave your answer in the comment section below. What Omega was feeling is normal, this is no different than if a person leaves to go to college or someone joins the military. It is always hard, and no matter where a person is in his or her stage of life, it can be hard for that person to adjust to that reality. This is what made this episode good but touching in that way. That is important to cover. Thank you.
