It looks like fans finally got what they have been waiting for. Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 7 just featured the return of an important character who could continue to play a huge role in the rise of the Galactic Empire.
WARNING: The following contains SPOILERS from Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 7! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!
The latest episode of The Bad Batch is titled Battle Scars. It opens with the Clone Force 99 being told by Cid that they offer her after they failed in delivering the tactical droid's data from the previous episode. But before Cid could give the Bad Batch their new mission, Captain Rex arrives and interrupts their meeting.
It's not exactly a happy reunion for the clones. Rex is shocked to find out that the Bad Batch hasn't removed their inhibitor chips yet and urges them to do so. They all set off for Bracca to find a Jedi cruiser in order to use the medical bay for the extraction.
It's not as simple as it sounds. The planet is ruled by the Scrapper Guild who aren't exactly welcoming to their guests. Moreover, Omega worries about what could happen to her friends when the chips are extracted. That's when Wrecker's chip suddenly activates and he attacks everyone but is ultimately subdued by Rex.
Luckily, all the inhibitor chips are removed without more incidents. Rex parts ways with the Bad Batch but it sounds like they could see each other again soon. The episode concludes with Hunter being noticed by members of the Scrapper's Guild.
It's great to catch up with Rex after the events in the Clone Wars Season 7. Hopefully, we'll get to see more of Rex in the future.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 7 is now streaming on Disney+.
