With such a big time gap between The Bad Batch and Return of the Jedi, it’s hard to say for certain if Pateesa is actually Muchi (which would make this yet ANOTHER retcon!) Let’s just say that Muchi arrived at Jabba’s Palace but refused to eat anyone, so was sent away to live happily in the countryside before she could be murdered by that horrible monster Luke Skywalker.
When I heard the line “you pull a job for me, I get the information you want” I immediately thought this was gonna be a Mandalorian-style sidequest episode, and I felt fed up with the Mando similarities. In the end though, it didn’t bother me at all. I really enjoyed the episode, its sense of fun and its unexpected turns, and I think stuff like the plot with Crosshair and the regular building-up of something involving Wrecker’s inhibitor chip will stop The Bad Batch from feeling like a formulaic series.
