Cut Lawquane at Home The Bad Batch Star Wars Disney Plus

Picking up where the last episode left off, the group heads to meet their contact on a new planet, with Omega in tow.

The contact is Cut Lawquane, a deserter Clone Trooper, and his family, who had just said goodbye to Captain Rex, also looking to disappear following the events of The Clone Wars series finale.

The Bad Batch is looking for tips on how to disappear from him, but he also needs their help. With the Empire solidifying its control of the planet, he needs to get off-world and to a more isolated location to avoid being discovered.

The only problem is that every ship and person is being registered by Clone Troopers, and Cut won't be able to get a registration chain code without being discovered.

The group discusses a plan while Omega plays with Cut's children, before she needs to be defended from a wild creature.

Eventually, Tech determines he would be able to make fake chain codes for the family to board a civilian shuttle. Hunter also decides to make an extra code for Omega to go along with them so she can have a childhood.

Most of the team sneaks into the enemy base for the codes by allowing their ship to be captured, unintentionally bringing Omega.

She then goes to bring the codes to Hunter and Cut, before being left with them at a moment's notice.
