Easter Eggs & Hidden Details in ‘The Bad Batch’ Season 3 Episode 13

By George & Josh Bate

The Bad Batch‘s final season nears ever closer to its conclusion with the release of the season’s 13th episode. Check out all of the easter eggs, references, and hidden details we noticed in The Bad Batch – Season 3, Episode 13: “Into the Breach” below:

Phee drops the Bad Batch and Rampart off on what appears to be Cloud City, the iconic Star Wars location that made its debut in The Empire Strikes Back. This is actually the planet Bora Vio, which previously appeared in the episode “Bounty Lost.” Previously, the Kaminoans used a cloning facility on Bora Vio as a rendezvous bounty for Cad Bane to deliver Omega to Taun We.

Omega waking up in her cell on Tantiss resembles imagery of Mira Killian waking up in Ghost in the Shell.

The Imperial Station that will lead the team to Tantiss orbits above Coruscant. Coruscant is the galactic capital of the Empire and featured prominently in the prequel trilogy.

The episode leans into various elements from classic prison break movies. Omega using the wall of her cell to hatch an escape plan is akin to what Andy Dufresne does in The Shawshank Redemption.

The Bad Batch strip their armor of any color in order to better blend in with Imperial forces aboard the space station. Their new armor is black and looks similar to Death Troopers.

The Bad Batch and Rampart use disguises to find the control room on the Imperial station. Disguises and infiltration have been part of Star Wars since A New Hope in 1977, and this element has repeated in a number of stories since, including Rogue One, The Mandalorian, The Last Jedi, and Rebels.

All of the establishing shots of Mount Tantiss have been face on. That is, until the below shot appears in “Into the Breach.” This shot is also similar shot to a shot of the Narkina 5 prison in Andor.

Rampart says that the Bad Batch are going to “stand out like overheated Gamorreans.” Gamorreans first appeared in Return of the Jedi as guards of Jabba’s Palace. This species has since appeared in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, amongst other stories.

The control room of the space station looks very similar to the control room of the Death Star in A New Hope.
