– The Bad Batch Episode 13 Recap for Infested contains spoilers –
Clone Force 99 and Omega return to Ord Mantell in The Bad Batch Episode 13 to discuss how Cid failed to warn them about the severity of the previous mission. They decide to speak with her but are taken aback when they get to the club to find it occupied by an unknown force. They meet Roland, the son of crime boss Isa Durand, when they enter Cid’s cabin.
Roland tells the Bad Batch that Cid is out of Ord Mantell as he is the new boss. Hunter and his team are told to leave. The troop is discussing whether or not they should intervene in Cid’s case. Omega proposes that Cid has aided them and that they track her down. Inside a ship, the Jedi informant awaits them, and they devise a strategy to expel Roland from Ord Mantell.
Cid informs the Clone Force 99 in Disney+ The Bad Batch Episode 13 that Roland has a Spice delivery with the Pyke. They intend to take away the cargo before Roland bring him down. When the Bad Batch and Cid approach the spice storage facility, she tells the men and Omega that it is infested. The men claim that a couple of bugs won’t bother them.
Cid and Clone Force 99 work diligently to complete their task, but the guards detect them. Both sides have a showdown, which awakens the hives, which aren’t your typical bugs. They all get out of the place after a bit of a battle. Pyke is furious with Roland at the club because he is late with the spice delivery. When Cid, Omega and the Bad Batch returns to the club, she believes her plan is successful.
Roland holds Cid responsible for the Spice delivery’s problems. Pyke informs the Bad Batch and Cid that his men will kill them if they don’t give him the spice. Cid admits to Pyke that she doesn’t have the spice, but she knows where she can get it. Pyke instructs them to bring the spice, and he’ll hold Omega and Roland hostage until then. Tech figures out how to deal with the hives while on their way to obtain the spice.
After battling with the nasty bugs, Cid and the Bad Batch obtain the spice. Omega and Roland had a touching exchange. Roland, she realises, isn’t that horrible after all. Pyke releases Omega and informs Cid that everything is clear between them. He is, however, enraged at Roland for the bad deal he made. Cid warns Pyke not to behead Roland since he doesn’t want to cause Isa Durand any problems.
Pyke says he doesn’t like bad deals at the end of The Bad Batch Episode 13. He does not, however, kill Roland, instead chops off one of his horns. Roland’s life is spared, and Cid has returned to Ord Mantell.
