The voice actor for all the clones in Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Dee Bradley Baker, is teasing a difficult emotional journey for a former member of Clone Force 99. Clone Force 99 split up in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season one because Crosshair could not withstand the Empire’s control due to his inhibitor chip. While the others were successful in defying Order 66, the genetically changed clones were forced to leave Kamino — and their brother — behind. However, there was nothing they could do for Crosshair. Crosshair finally removed his inhibitor chip, but he never returned to his brethren because he felt betrayed by the Bad Batch.
In season 2 of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Crosshair will appear alongside Commander Cody, who betrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi after Palpatine ordered him to carry out Order 66. Baker says it will be a challenge for the ex-member of Clone Force 99, even though he may be facing a confrontation that may force him to turn on his comrades once more. The Crosshair will be the focus of a difficult and emotional narrative that will drive him to his lowest point yet, Baker says in an interview with ComicBook.com. Here is a quote from Baker:
What Will Crosshair Do Next?
Crosshair has stayed devoted to the Empire despite having his inhibitor chip removed. Crosshair hasn’t wavered, even as he fights to save his siblings, despite the Empire’s outright attempt to assassinate him after accusing him of betrayal and disloyalty. Crosshair must be made right in season 2 of Star Wars: The Bad Batch if he is to keep his appeal; otherwise, the back-and-forth nature of his relationship with the Batch would get old very quickly. The forthcoming season may allow Crosshair to recognize his error and rejoin the Batch, given that he will be collaborating with Commander Cody, who has also been controlled by an inhibitor chip.
What is known about season two of The Bad Batch?
Along with Echo and Omega, the entire original Bad Batch squad will return for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2, but additional well-known Star Wars characters, such as Emperor Palpatine, Captain Rex, the Clone Commandos, and Admiral Rampart, will also make appearances. The season will also include an increased sense of isolation for the Bad Batch due to the Empire’s significant changes since season 1 as it gradually phases out the clones. The opposing stormtroopers will increase in size, prominence, power, and their usual inability to fire a shot accurately.
The Bad Batch will need to work together to keep Omega safe after learning that she is the only genetic descendant of Jango Fett, even though information regarding the following season is scant. The clones may seek revenge on the Empire after Kamino is destroyed, which would explain why they are exterminated so fast before the first film in the original Star Wars trilogy.
In Star Wars: The Bad Batch, another Jedi tragedy—the death of the Wookiee Jedi Gungi—follows Order 66; thus, if there is a revolution, it will be fiercely resisted. Even though it won’t be possible to predict each character’s exact outcome until the season has concluded, each episode will undoubtedly feature emotional arcs at least as moving as Crosshair’s.
