The accent is strong with that one.Lol. Omega doesn’t even pronounce her own name correctly.
…The third episode was definitely more interesting for Crosshair than for the Batch. Crosshair getting his own squad, AND showing us that his attitude will effectively lay the groundwork for trooper/civi interaction.
Yup, but don't forget... This is like 30 years before we meet her in The Mandalorian, so, I'm guessing they're going for a full character arc.SPOILERS FOR THE 5/21 EP:
So…..did Fennec straight-up murder that Pantoran cop and the totally-minding-his-own-business driver that she threw off the transport?
It’ll be hard to root for her as an anti-hero after that.

Although, come to think of it, we don't know how 'good' she actually is. The only heroic things we've seen her do is because she's serving Boba, & those things were because he's indebted himself to Din.
Yeah, I agree about the broad strokes. There are characters like Bo & the rest of the Night Owls who are the straight up heroes in other series/stories, but in The Mandalorian, the way we seem to be intended to view them is 'How does their agenda/story go with/against Din Djarin'.That’s very true. But Favreau seems to be painting with a very broad brush on “The Mandalorian”. Seems like they are setting her up in BoBF as a darker shade of Melinda May’s “fiercely loyal and extremely badass”.
Not saying they can’t pull a head-fake and have her turn out to be a backstabbing straight-up villain, but long-game switcheroos like that don’t seem to be the creative team’s modus operandi.
That’s why this ep of Bad Batch was surprising. If she had tossed the transport driver out at a very low altitude and speed where he might have just gotten banged up is one thing, but that guy is totally innocent and totally dead. And, again, she shot that cop square in the chest.
I never said she was a hero. I said it’d be hard to root for her as an anti-hero, especially since it seems like that is how they were trying to position her in The Mandalorian.Why would we see her as a hero anyway? She's a bounty hunter. They've always been, at best, anti-heroes in the SW universe. Even the honorable ones aren't really heroes.
I hear you. You’re right; it’s murky.Yeah, I agree about the broad strokes.

Just like when Boba showed up at the end of ep1, seemed like it could be leading toward a conflict. Then he shows up & becomes an indented ally, & by proxy, so does Shan. By the end though, they straight up walk into the palace, murder everyone in sight (except the dancing slave),& seemingly set themselves up as the heads of whatever enterprise was running out of that place, & I doubt it was an altruistic endeavor.
Heck, for that matter, we might not like the Mandalorian himself if we'd seen many missions before he was involved with Grogu.
So fit those reasons,I think it's difficult to get a read on many of the newer characters agendas/allegiances.
Absolutely!I hear you. You’re right; it’s murky.
But not harming the slave dancer just plays further into the anti-hero angle, right? Boba and Fennec will readily kill “bad guys” - guys who bought into the criminal world - but won’t hurt “civilians”.
Ostensibly, everyone else in the palace was some kind of underworld criminal and far from an innocent bystander. And I got the impression that there was already some post-ROTJ “bad blood” between Boba and the remnants of Jabba’s court.
