Star Wars: The Bad Batch - Shadows of Tantiss

"Shadows of Tantiss" makes good use of a ticking tock trope using the blood sampling we saw introduced in "Confined." With Omega's (Michelle Ang) blood now in the system, she's forced to escape with Crosshair (Dee Bradley Baker) before the sample is tested leading to a hurried, but ultimately successful, escape from Tantiss. However, now that the Empire knows the secret they have been searching for so relentlessly is locked in Omega's genetic code you would expect them to redouble their efforts to capturing her again.

Notable moments of the episode include Crosshair's general complaining about the half-assed escape attempt, Omega putting her knowledge of the base to work in the escape, the arrival of the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) at the facility, the chase through the jungle, and Crosshair and Omega liberating themselves without the help of the rest of the squad (meaning you can completely ignore the mismanaged, and now completely redundant, second episode of the season which veers too far in the horror genre for a Star Wars property).
