The Bad Batch Season 2 Ep 6 is the sixth chapter of the second season of an animated television series set in the Star Wars universe. The series follows a group of elite and genetically enhanced clone troopers, known as the Bad Batch, as they undertake daring mercenary missions after the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. The show explores the events that occur after the end of the Clone Wars, and how the characters adapt to the changing political landscape.

Entitled “Tribe”, The Bad Batch Season 2 Ep 6 finally brings this series back to basics. Although this chapter is still a standalone one, at least it is connected to the bigger story elements that make up Star Wars. Gungi – a Wookiee Jedi Padawan first introduced in The Clone Wars – makes an appearance here. The young Wookiee is rescued by Omega from a group of droids and the clones agree to bring him home.
And home is the planet Kashyyyk, from which Gungi has been away from, as a Jedi Padawan. We discover that the Empire and specifically a group of Trandoshan collaborators were hunting down Wookiees and destroying the planet’s natural forest habitat. The clones have no choice but to fight on the side of the Wookiees, although technically it is Omega who leads the effort together with Gungi.
The Bad Batch Season 2 Ep 6 is significant to the path of the clones, as after the meandering plots of the previous chapters, the clones realise that they have a stake in the rebellion against the Empire and perhaps they cannot stay on the sidelines anymore. This is the right direction for the series to take and hopefully the rest of season 2 will stay the course!
