While on Kaller, Clone Captain Grey receives Order 66 and instructs the clones to kill Jedi Knights Depa Billaba and Caleb Dume. When the Bad Batch overhears the order, they feel no compulsion to execute it…except for Crosshair. Back on Kamino, the Bad Batch encounters Omega, a young female clone who is genetically as unorthodox as they are. Meanwhile, Admiral Tarkin arrives to evaluate whether the clone army is of any more use to the new Empire.
