The abandoned cloning facility has become of my favorite BB locations so far, not only because of its creepy atmosphere but also by expanding on the lore of the Kaminoans. Could it have been a place for some of their more bioethically-questionable experiments? The sight of the Kaminoan clones/mutants is pure nightmare fuel (I second the allusion to Close Encounters). Also I can’t help but notice the similarity between the Kaminoan growing vats and those on Exegol. Maybe Palpatine, despite having no more use for a clone army, still required the Kaminoan facilities and assets for his greater-scope contingency plan.

Though I crave for more Batch development (particularly for Echo and Tech), I really liked how they took a backseat and let Omega be the star for this one. She was smart and resourceful, having come a long way from her beginnings, and they did a good job tackling her inner fears of being no more than a Kaminoan pet project.

Nice small wink to the Legends fans with Boba’s original codename being “Alpha”. This looks as further evidence he may cross paths with his “sister” at some point in the future (“Alpha” and “Omega”, anyone?).

On the topic of Boba, so did anyone notice the metal plate on the back of Cad Bane’s head? Could it mean his standoff with Boba already happened? 😦
