The Bad Batch Episode 10 recap contains spoilers. Disney+ Hotstar has described the episode as: “The Batch has their ideology challenged.” Common Ground begins with Captain Bragg telling the residents of Raxus planet about the Empire. Bragg warns people to submit themselves to the Empire, whose intention is only to ‘protect’ the galaxy.
Captain Bragg tells Raxus senator Avi Singh to praise the Empire in front of his people. Singh is confused as he doesn’t really support this kind of rule. Before giving his speech, Singh tells his droid to follow the instructions list if anything happens to him. Instead of convincing Raxus people to submit to the Empire, senator Avi Singh bashes it. Captain Bragg is furious and asks the stormtroopers to capture Singh.
The Bad Batch Episode 10 scene cuts, and we see Hunter, Echo, Tech and Wrecker arriving back with Omega safely at Ord Mantell. The Bad Batch decides to keep the profile low and not take up any mission for some time. However, Cid gives them a mission to rescue Avi Singh. When Hunter refuses, Cid reminds him of the debt they all owe her. For Omega’s safety, Clone Force 99 decides to carry out this mission without her. They ask Cid to look after Omega and stay low.
The Bad Batch doesn’t really want to carry out Cid’s mission as Avi Singh is a Separatist. The mission clashes with their ideology, but they have to do it to clear the debt. Hunter and his men meet Singh’s clone at Raxus and face many hurdles before making it inside the Empire facility. After a lot of fights, they finally manage to rescue Avi Singh.
After a long time, Omega had a pleasant time in The Bad Batch Episode 10 named Common Ground. When the Clone Force was away, Omega earned a lot of money by playing the Dejarik board game. She plays by Cid’s side and takes 60% of whatever amount they win. With the money Omega earns, she clears all the debt the Bad Batch owes to Cid. On the other hand, the Empire still has its forces in Raxus. So the Clone Force 99 has no choice but to bring Avi Singh along with them. The episode ends with Hunter and Omega playing the board game.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 10 Recap: Is it worth watching?
Today’s episode showed us two things – the Empire won’t spare you if you don’t accept their rule. Secondly, Hunter, Echo, Tech, Wrecker and Omega don’t truly owe a debt to Cid anymore. So they might leave Ord Mantell in the next episode, and it will be a new adventure or trouble for them.
