Warning! This post contains SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 3, episode 15.


  • The Bad Batch finale provided an emotional and happy ending for Clone Force 99, with all members surviving and living in peace.
  • Omega is revealed as a Rebellion pilot who may join the New Republic Rangers, setting up her potential appearance in Ahsoka season 2.
  • Omega’s story continues as she sets off to explore the galaxy and potentially reunite with Hera Syndulla, hinting at an exciting future.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch’s series finale has set up an exciting reunion for Ahsoka season 2. The Bad Batch’s season 3 finale was an emotional, satisfying, and happy ending for Clone Force 99 – all the remaining members survived and lived out their lives in peace on Pabu, far away from the terror of the Empire and the trauma of war. Audiences were also granted a surprising glimpse of Omega as an adult, too, heading off into the unknown as a pilot for the Rebellion while Hunter, Wrecker, and Crosshair stayed on the island, their fighting days long behind them.

All in all, Clone Force 99’s story has come to an end. Their mission was to protect Omega from the Empire, and they succeeded. By effectively shutting down Tantiss and killing Dr. Hemlock, one of the few who knew of Omega’s unique genetic traits, Omega was no longer in active danger. Omega’s story, however, was arguably just beginning. Though she’d learned and witnessed a lot during her time with the Bad Batch, there was still so much left for her to explore. With the finale’s epilogue reveal, it’s now clear where Omega is headed next, and it may have set up an integral reunion and Omega’s live-action debut.


Will There Be A Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 4?

Has Star Wars: The Bad Batch been renewed for season 4? Here’s everything we know about the animated series and Clone Force 99’s future.

Omega Is A Rebellion Pilot – And She Already Knows Another Prominent Rebel Pilot Too

During her time with Clone Force 99, Omega met a lot of interesting (and previously established) Star Wars characters. One such character was a young Twi’lek girl named Hera Syndulla. In The Bad Batch season 1, episode 12, “Rescue on Ryloth,” Omega, Hera, and the Bad Batch accomplished a dangerous mission on Hera’s homeworld to liberate Hera’s parents, freedom fighters Cham and Eleni Syndulla, from the Empire’s clutches. Hera and Omega became firm friends during that mission, sharing a love of droids, space, and most importantly, flying.

Hera Syndulla

Hailing from the planet Ryloth, Hera Syndulla is the daughter of a legendary Twi’lek freedom fighter. Although relations between Hera and her father have sometimes been distant, they share the same cause; Hera settled on the planet Lothal, leading a nascent rebel cell there. She became a general in the Rebel Alliance, participating in the Battle of Endor, and remains an important military leader in the New Republic.

Hera, of course, was originally introduced as an adult in Star Wars Rebels. In Rebels, Hera was one of the best pilots in the Rebellion, as she and her crew, more commonly known as the Ghost Crew, used Hera’s primary ship, the Ghost, to launch hundreds of important rescue missions, supply runs, offensive attacks, and more against the Empire. In the end, Hera became known as General Syndulla, a title she still held long after the Galactic Civil War ended during the New Republic era.

Star Wars Rebels.
Characters like Hera Syndulla, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Jacen Syndulla also crossed over into live-action for the first time in

Hera made her live-action debut in Ahsoka season 1 as one of Ahsoka Tano’s closest allies, though she didn’t have as prominent a role as she did during Star Wars Rebels. This could all change in Ahsoka season 2, however, now that the dangerous Imperial Grand Admiral, Thrawn, has returned from exile. Hera was an important figure during the first fight against Thrawn in Rebels, and she’ll surely want to be on the frontlines this time around, too. What if an old friend of Hera’s, one who also became a Rebellion pilot, shows up to lend a hand?

Could Omega Be A New Republic Ranger By The Mandalorian Era?

In the fight against Thrawn and the Imperial Remnant, the New Republic will need all the help it can get. Many of the Rebellion’s old pilots have become rangers for the New Republic after the fall of the Empire – Captain Carson Teva, Hera’s old crewmate Garazeb Orrelios, and even The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin now work as New Republic rangers, patrolling the galaxy to keep it safe. So, why couldn’t one of Hera’s old friends join the rangers, too? It’s entirely possible (and even plausible) that Omega went on to become a pilot for the New Republic if she used to fly for the Rebel Alliance.

A mysterious mutant clone created by the Kaminoans, Omega longed to get away from Kamino and explore the galaxy. She was rescued from the Empire by Clone Force 99, and soon became the heart of the team. The Empire still view Omega as valuable, though, and all signs indicate her story could well end in tragedy.

This sets up Omega’s live-action debut in Ahsoka season 2. Perhaps Hera and Omega flew multiple missions together during the last few years of the war, or they reunited every once in a while, at one of the Rebellion’s bases, like Yavin 4 or Dantooine. Perhaps Omega even flew under Hera’s command as a general. Anything is possible. Omega becoming a Rebel and New Republic pilot makes sense – she learned to fly and fight from some of the strongest and most effective clones, after all, and all she ever wanted was to explore the galaxy and save those who couldn’t save themselves.

Omega making an appearance in
season 2 is the perfect and most organic way to keep her legacy alive in the franchise.

Now that The Bad Batch has come to an end, having Omega make an appearance in Ahsoka season 2 is the perfect and most organic way to keep her legacy alive in the franchise. Hunter, Wrecker, and Crosshair’s stories may have come to an end, and deservedly so, but Omega’s doesn’t have to. As a character, she still has a lot to learn about who she is without Clone Force 99. What does she want to accomplish on her own? What relationships has Omega built in the years since being liberated from Mount Tantiss? Star Wars: The Bad Batch couldn’t provide the answers, but perhaps Ahsoka can.
