Sure, we were a little harsh on last week's episode, 'Faster'. It felt like a diversion that was unfortunately timed to come immediacy after a standout episode of the entire series in 'The Solitary Clone'. Coming off of this week's 'Indiana Jones' inspired treasure hunt episode, we learned the show was capable of being even more aimless than we already thought possible. Wanda Sykes' character Phee Genoa returns, and we learn she's less of a pirate and more of a treasure hunter, which admittedly is a cool refinement. Unfortunately, the nature of this "mission of week" which finds the Batch exploring a desolate uncharted planet means that there is little to no plot movement for the larger story. To make matters worse, despite some relatively interesting lore possibilities (hello 'Jedi: Fallen Order'), there's also no character work here either. It's the ultimate "filler" episode. I term I loath to use, as its meaning has largely been lost in the popular lexicon, but in this case, the shoe fits.
