In Cad Bane’s ship, Omega switches off Todo temporarily by pretending to help him. She then finds her comm device and comm device and contacts the Bad Batch. However, due to low signal, the communication isn’t clear. As Omega walks away and tries to find a spot to get a better signal, Cad Bane comes out looking for her.
The biggest twist of The Bad Batch Episode 9 is Fennec Shand making a smashing entry in Bane’s ship. She kills Taun We, who came there to pay Bane for his bounty work. There’s a fight between both the Bounty Hunters, and this gives Omega enough time to find somehow a way to escape.
