I just watched this week's episode.  And it looks like we're already getting a bit more of a look at how the criminal underworld of Star Wars functions.  And it also had some nice links between Clone Wars and the OT.  The new character, Sid, seems like she's going to be an interesting recurring character in the series.

The most recent episode was the first one that I think was totally "fun" and what I was hoping for with this series.  It had little to do with Omega and was about the whole crew getting a mission accomplished.

Big debate on the internet concerning the fate of Moochi.
This is the way.

(edited to remove hints of spoilers)

People falling in love with Moochi and losing their mind at the possibility it is the one.

It'd be a pointless sidebar to the episode if Moochi isn't. His/her inclusion is an easter egg, not red herring.

Pretty solid episode last week.  I liked connecting Rex in with the Bad Batch.  I think it would be awesome if the Bad Batch got hooked in with the Rebels somehow and were used as Stormtrooper infiltrators.

I know this "small universe" stuff bugs quite a few people, but I don't mind that basically every episode has the Bad Batch bumping into someone from TCW, Rebels, The Mandalorian, etc.

I thought it was cool that it was Rex that helped them get rid of the chips, mainly so that the chips weren't a lingering plot point hanging over the Bad Batch heads making us wonder if/when they'd switch on.

The small universe stuff does bug me a bit, but to me it seems natural for Rex to seek out the Bad Batch and vice versa.

+1 on the concerns over the "small universe" concept.  But in this case Rex seeking out the Bad Batch works.  They had a full story arc together in season 7 of Clone Wars, and Rex had an even longer relationship with Echo. 

As for the Martez sisters showing up in the previous episode?  That seems like a little bit of a stretch.  But after bringing Rex into the series this past week, I feel pretty certain that Rafa and Trace reached out to Rex in the hologram transmission at the end of the episode on Corellia.

Another episode, another TCW character shows up.   :D

Apparently there are only five bounty hunters in the whole galaxy, and they live for a long time, so yeah...

Or you hire the best when you have the money and the target is that important to you. There aren't five lawyers in world or sports agents but sometimes it seems like it.

You've got an excuse to get Cad back into our minds then sign me up Disney.

I loved the episode.  I'm hoping that it takes a couple of episodes for Cad Bane to get to Kamino with Omega and he has a run in with Boba Fett and maybe Fennic Shand!

Don't get my wrong, I've enjoyed the last couple of episodes too, but sometimes the small universe thing bugs me a bit. 

I'm not sure if they bring back Cad / Fennic because they think its fun, or because they're lazy and don't want to sketch out a new character.  Probably some of both.

They went to the "trouble" of creating the Cid character when they could have had it be Jabba, Xizor, or maybe Darth Maul.  I'm glad they created the new character as it feels more original.  So I guess reusing some of the same characters when they don't need to sometimes just feels lazy.

It would be a nice reason for Hasbro to re-issue the 6" Cad Bane/TODO set as a deluxe item in the Bad Batch packaging too.  I know a lot of folks who missed that set when it came out...

This is a great idea that is fan friendly and would make a world of sense.

It'll never happen.
