**SPOILERS Ahead For The Bad Batch Episode 15**

In this week’s installment of Dave Filoni’s latest animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Omega (Michelle Ang) and Clone Force 99 (Dee Bradley Baker) — Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Echo, and even Imperial Commander Crosshair — find themselves back on Kamino, where the Clone Army of the Republic was originally created.

One moment in Episode 15 (“Return to Kamino”) passes so quickly, it almost doesn’t register at first — but it has potentially major implications in regard to what, exactly, is going on with Omega.

We know the young female clone contains first-generation Jango Fett DNA. This makes her Boba Fett’s (originally known as “Alpha”) younger “sister”, in essence, and changes a lot of things we previously thought we knew about the notorious bounty hunter’s background.

What Episode 15 confirmed, however, is that Omega is aging at a far different rate than any of the other clone troopers we’ve met in the Star Wars universe so far. When the little girl shows The Bad Batch Nala Se’s secret laboratory, she also shows them the tanks where they were created. This proves she remembers Clone Force 99 coming into existence, and is, therefore, older than they are, despite looking much younger.

Although we haven’t yet encountered Boba Fett in The Bad Batchthough it seems likely we will see both him and Cad Bane (Corey Burton) in next week’s season finale — it’s clear that Omega is aging far differently than he did, as well, despite being cloned in the same “batch”.

This new information has fans extremely confused, and slightly sad, for new fan-favorite character, Omega.

really f**** me up how omega who’s like 11 remembers how the bad batch (fully grown men) was created…so they’re actually like what? 6 biological years old? so they’re maybe aging 4 times quicker? they’ll be dead when she’s like 30?

If omega knew about where the bad batch was created was she there ? She’s obviously not got accelerated ageing so assuming she’s like 11 they’re all only like 22-26 and they’ve gone through so much :((((((((

Meanwhile, other Star Wars fans, like Twi’Lek Enthusiast, are less concerned with Omega’s age, and more with who she is going to turn out to be:

So my theory is that I feel like Omega is unknowingly a double agent. Nala Se let tbb & Omega escape Kamino in the 1st ep so her experiments survive & she sent Fennec to keep tabs & such.

There’s also the possibility of Omega having an inhibitor chip. But I’m really sure the last ep is gonna feature Nala Se & reveal what is going on with her. I know we haven’t seen the last of her

While we have to wait until next week to learn more secrets about what was really going on on Kamino, it’s sure to be a wild ride to the finish. But, fortunately for fans, The Bad Batch Season 2 was recently confirmed, so there are more adventures to come with our favorite elite squad.

What do you think about Omega seemingly aging at a normal rate?
