Nicely, apart from being one other legacy character for whom death is a revolving door or one thing to steadily lie about for the drama of all of it, Ventress’ return within the closing season of The Unhealthy Batch raises lots of attention-grabbing questions on how she’ll match into occasions, and extra broadly into this period of Star Wars. In any case, we thought she didn’t survive to see Sidious’ rise and his final plan to type the Empire truly come to fruition—however now she has, so what’s going to her place in all that be? Is she serving to the Batch to rescue Omega from the clutches of Mount Tantiss, or do they encounter on another mission?
The place they may discover her is attention-grabbing, too. The trailer additionally consists of what seems to be a return to the planet Teth—which was first launched within the authentic 2008 Clone Wars film, and the place Obi-Wan and Ventress first crossed blades. Bringing Ventress again and having it related to the primary battle we noticed her in can be an attention-grabbing parallel, and in addition maybe Unhealthy Batch coming full circle on an animated type and story that started 16 years in the past.
There’s additionally one other vital query: if Ventress survives this second likelihood at life and comes out of Unhealthy Batch in as soon as piece, the place does she go from right here? All of a sudden, there could possibly be much more tales to inform with Ventress, as an alternative of getting her, as we’d seemingly thought for practically a decade, perish earlier than the subsequent chapter of her post-Sith life may actually start, to have saved and redeemed Quinlan Vos. Might Ventress survive the rise and fall of the Empire? What would she be doing in that point?
And, maybe, given simply how vital Dathomir and the Nightsisters have develop into to the occasions surrounding the return of Grand Admiral Thrawn within the occasions of Ashoka, the timing of Ventress’ survival is very attention-grabbing certainly. Maybe we is likely to be setting the stage in Unhealthy Batch for her eventual arrival in live-action Star Wars? An Ahsoka team-up after every thing they’ve each gone by way of can be very intriguing (and truthfully very humorous, given their histories).
We doubtless received’t get a solution to all of those questions instantly, however we should always begin getting solutions to a minimum of just a few of them when The Unhealthy Batch’s third and closing season begins streaming on Disney+ February 21.
