Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Ending Explained

Warning! This post contains SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2, episodes 15 & 16Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 concluded in an epic two-part finale, featuring major twists and reveals that will transform the Star Wars franchise. Set during the Dark Times of the Empire's reign, Clone Force 99 continues to survive while working as mercenaries, all while protecting their newest and youngest member Omega, a unique female clone created by Kamino's former lead scientist Nala Se. However, their attempt to rescue and redeem one of their own ends in major disaster.
Clone Force 99 had earlier learned one of their own, Crosshair, was held prisoner by the Empire's secret Advanced Science Division, led by Doctor Royce Hemlock. He freed himself long enough to send a distress signal, actually intended to warn the team to be on the lookout for Hemlock, who seeks to acquire Omega to force Kaminoan cloner Nala Se's compliance. Instead, Clone Force 99 decide to try to rescue Crosshair, figuring they can track Dr. Hemlock back to his facility. Unfortunately, their mission - which infiltrates a major Imperial summit on Governor Tarkin's world of Eriadu - goes badly wrong.
The Bad Batch Season 2 Finale's Major Rogue One Cameos Explained The Imperial Summit sees Tarkin and other Imperial leaders listen to Hemlock's still-mysterious proposals for the remaining clones, as well as the ones who have begun to resist the new galactic order. Tarkin then requests a report for Orson Krennic on Project Stardust, the codename for the construction of the Death Star. Krennic was played by Ben Mendelsohn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and he returns to voice the character in a surprising cameo. It's interesting to note he's still only a commander, although he apparently already has a leading role in the battle-station's development.
The summit on Eriadu has also been targeted by another old ally of the Bad Batch - Saw Gerrera, who they allowed to leave Onderon in season 1 before they deserted the Empire. He has now begun his crusade against the Empire in earnest, intending to blow up the Imperial summit along with all its leaders. Although Crosshair and Tech try to appeal to Saw and convince him to call off his attack so they can track Hemlock and save Crosshair, Saw is considered an extremist for a reason. As such, Gerrera refuses due to his commitment to the dream of destroying the Empire once and for all.
How Tech's Death In The Bad Batch Season 2's Ending Will Change The Show Governor Tarkin protected his summit well, and all the leaders survive. Tragically, the only real major casualty from Gerrera's attack is one of Clone Force 99, Tech, who sacrifices himself during the Bad Batch's escape from the facility. Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2's finale thus shows the first casualty, with Tech choosing "Plan 99" for the sake of his brothers. Going forward, Tech's absence is undoubtedly going to be felt by the rest of the squad for quite some time, and not just due to his brilliant mind and technological know-how. The Disney+ TV show has done a good job developing Clone Force 99's family dynamics, with Tech serving as their heart.
The interesting question is whether Tech is actually dead. While Dr. Hemlock claims only his glasses could be salvaged, that isn't necessarily the case; there are interesting parallels between Tech's death in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2's finale and Bucky Barnes' in Captain America: The First Avenger, perhaps meaning he will become a Winter Soldier figure. While his body is not shown at the Empire's Mount Tantiss facility later in the episode, there are humanoids in some of the booths.
Why Cid Betrayed Clone Force 99 In The Bad Batch Season 2 Ending The rest of the Bad Batch barely escape Eriadu with their lives, and they are forced to return to Ord Mantell for medical care. Unfortunately, they are betrayed by Cid, who sells them out to the Empire. This particular twist has been well set up over the course of Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2, with Cid portrayed as someone who does only what is best for herself. From her perspective, as she confessed to Wrecker, Clone Force 99 had brought too much heat with them, and she had to act out of self-preservation. She clearly gelt guilty, and even tried to help the Bad Batch save Omega, but it's doubtful she will ever get back into the squad's good graces.
The Bad Batch Season 2 Finale's Omega Sister Twist Explained Omega is taken to Mount Tantiss, Dr. Hemlock's base, to serve as a living bargaining chip and force Nala Se's compliance with the Empire. She discovers Crosshair, before being approached by a female clone engineer - who claims she is Omega's sister. Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2's finale suggests Omega was not the first female clone of Jango Fett created by the Kaminoans, which potentially creates another strand to the Fett bloodline.
Somehow, this older clone was created and eventually became part of the Empire's Advanced Science Division without Omega ever knowing she existed. It's reasonable to assume this major twist will be further developed in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 3. It's likely only Nala Se knows the truth.
The Bad Batch Season 2 Finale Confirms Palpatine's Cloning Plan During the Imperial Summit, Dr. Hemlock claims his work is "of great importance to the Emperor" on a personal level. This potentially sets up a straight narrative throughout to Palpatine's resurrection through cloning, seen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Later, Nala Se insists what the Emperor wants is impossible, and is told she must find a way to make it possible - or Omega will suffer. This likely refers to the attempt to create a clone that carries a strong connection to the Force through midi-chlorians. This is also probably why an Imperial Remnant scientist, Dr. Pershing, was experimenting on Grogu years later in The Mandalorian season 1.
