The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 5 Teases Major Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reference


Watching out for Easter Eggs has turned into a popular pasttime for fans who tune in for the new Star Wars projects. So it's no surprise that people have spotted a huge one in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 5 and it might confirm a major connection to the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

In The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 5, Clone Force 99 joined the pirate Phee Genoa on a search for treasure. The treasure in question happened to be the Heart of the Mountain, a crystal hidden away in Skara Nal. When Phee finally takes the crystal, the Bad Batch learns that Skara Nal is actually an ancient doomsday mech that is activated by the stone's removal.

But wait, does that mech look kinda familiar? Fans are pointing out that the design is similar to the Zeffo, who designed the Tomb Guardians featured in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Considering that Phee mentioned that Skara Nal is an ancient legend, we're pretty sure that it was built by the Zeffo to ... destroy an entire planet if the crystal is stolen? Who knows what those guys were thinking back then?

In Jedi: Fallen Order, the Tomb Guardians are ancient automatons designed to protect sacred tombs and crypts on the planet Zeffo. They only attack intruders due to a programmed response, which is pretty much the same as Skara Nal. Needless to say, the appearance on Zeffo creations in The Bad Batch Season 2 could lead to more references in the future.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 5 is the second episode featuring Wanda Sykes as Phee Genoa, who appeared briefly in the two-part premiere special. Considering that Omega seems to look up to her, there's a good chance we'll see more of Phee in the future.

The Bad Batch Season 2 Episode 5 is now streaming on Disney+.
