Release time, date and total of explored episodes
* WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Episode 8 of The Bad Batch *
Episode 8 of The Bad Batch was arguably one of the best episodes in the series yet, as it eventually saw the Empire catch up with Clone Force 99.
Titled Meeting, the episode also saw the reintroduction of an infamous bounty hunter whose appearance didn’t bode well for Omega and the Bad Batch.
The episode ended on a dramatic cliffhanger that left fans hungry for more and keen to know the episode 9 release time.
Recap of episode 8
Episode 8 of The Bad Batch, titled Meeting, continues directly from the events of episode 7.
After a warning from the Scrapper’s Guild, the Empire sends a team of soldiers, led by Crosshair, to hunt down Clone Force 99.
It’s a clash that we know has been going on for several episodes and it takes all of Bad Batch’s skill and ingenuity to survive, using Bracca’s junk to their advantage.
However, as it looks like they are on the verge of escaping, our heroes are faced with an unknown (and very familiar to us) enemy bounty hunter Cad Bane.
He appears to have been sent to retrieve Omega by Lama Su on Kamino but the Bounty Hunter does not reveal who hired him in the Bad Batch.
Hunter does what he can to get in Cad Bane’s path, but it’s not enough as the bounty hunter knocks him out and takes the young clone.
