Star Wars: The Bad Batch - A Different Approach / The Return

"A Different Approach" picks up events with Omega (Michelle Ang) and Crosshair (Dee Bradley Baker) on the run together and the new pup teaching the old dog a few new tricks as Omega takes the lead in less murdery plans on getting back to the rest of the squad. It's a nice little episode building the comradery of the two characters even more before delivering them to a remote location in time for a reunion.

The title of "The Return" works in multiple ways as its the first mission with Crosshair working with the team again and it also marks his return to the site of him breaking from the Empire when the squad travels to the abandoned base of Barton IV hoping to use its computers to unlock the encrypted data within the stolen data pad. The episode is most notable for the tense moments between Crosshair and Hunter (Baker), Crosshair paying silent respect to the clones who died in the facility, an the pair working together to save the group from a giant ice wyrm.

So far the season has progressed as expected first dealing with Omega's escape and journey home and now starting the process of Crosshair's redemption and return to the fold. There has been quite a few mentions of the noticeable tremor in his hand suggesting this will come into play at some point before the series concludes, perhaps in a most inconvenient time for the characters.
