Given that the Empire will execute Howzer (unless he escapes), I say R.I.P. Howzer, you are a legend.

What if this Is happening to more and more clones over time. Therefore, Leading up to the Kamino Uprising. Just my own little theory, what do you think?

Maybe the tossing aside of arms is where the empire ramps ups efforts for non clone recruits and start heavily mixing squadrons with these new soldiers. Clones training their replacements would be interesting to see.

It would be cool to see the first large scale action of rebellion come from clones.

Order 66 was specifically for killing the Jedi. but as for Jessie and Rex if you watched or remember when Rex was talking to him, Rex almost got through till Jessie shook his head and snapped back to "Kill Ashoka"

I think, since order 66’s main objective was to eliminate all Jedi (or any force users) its not an issue for Howzer to think freely because, as you said, there’s no Jedi around, at least that we know of. Maybe this is why the empire started to convert their forces slowly in recruits than clones, because after the initial order and most Jedi being eliminated, the chips started to become less effective over time.

I have two theories, first being that gen 1 clones have their chips degrading? Second being the length of time since heat order 66?

I definitely think it’s a time thing. Wrecker viewed everyone in violation of order 66, including Omega. I strongly feel that over time, we are gonna see more clones have their chips wear off and switch. Leading into the clone rebellion on Kamino, and the real reason why the clones were phased out.

5:53 again, no. The chips are deep inside their brain, and there is no way he'd act like that suddenly. By that pace, the next video you make will say that not even one clone is under order 66.

Order 66 only makes clones kill jedi right, so it isnt that weird that they put down their weapons

I know that Howzer’s Action figure was named Ballast, so is that his nopickname now or is he the 1st clone with a surname, since SW Theory refers to him as Howzer Ballast?

I think Order 66 tends to have a double effect: Primarily, it is a fail-safe to exterminate The Jedi Order; but, it seems to make the subject much more compliant to the will of The Emperor and The Galactic Empire. I believe, perhaps because of the enormous amount of Clone Troops created over the last 10 years, and even more so over the last 3 years, during The Clone Wars, the reduced Jango Fett DNA is causing the chips to be not as effective as they were on a 1st-Generation Clone, like Rex and Jessie. I also very much believe that the lack of a Jedi presence on Ryloth has a decided role in how this particular platoon/squad is currently behaving, esp. if, like Ballast Howzer, they have been stationed on the planet for 2 years, and feel a sense of duty and unity with the denizens of the planet. My guess is: Filoni & his creative team are planting the seeds for a Clone uprising against The Imperials, along with a civil war amongst The Clones, themselves. This should be bloody and tragic. And, yes, Jeremy: I foresee Crosshair, at some point in the narrative, coming to his senses, and doing something truly heroic and expiatory, only to die at the hands of Darth Vader. It would be the perfect way to introduce that new HORROR to the galaxy. I think the last moments of Season 1 are going to be significant and revelatory.

The fact crosshair did not shoot ballast but still wants to hunt down his former brothers signifies he is no longer under control of the chip.

Well the order also said to take out any soldiers who do not comply with Order 66 and the Bad Batch fit that category.

The Kaminoans did say humans were "emotional". It could be possible that the chips "hit" like a capacitor (really hard at first and diminish over time).

If Howzer dies it will be the worst thing Disney has done yet

imo the actual reason is because the chips is only activated when order 66 is executed, which this occupation has nothing to do with, thats why they werent affected

Honestly I believe that Howzer’s chip never activated since there were no jedi on Ryloth

I HAVE THEORY! i beleive that after the fall of the jedi and order 66. they didnt need to put in the chips anymore it was instilled in them to fight the jedi. kind of like our military today. do anything for god and country.

I have a theory that if crosshair doesn't die by the end he'll likely either become a phase 0 dark trooper or the first death trooper. He's too valuable to be tossed to the side like other clones and with his talents, DNA and loyalty to the empire it would make sense for them to make him the first canadite for either project.

You're being way too hard on my man Crosshair. I'd be pissed too if my brothers mangled me, left me for dead, and replaced me with a little girl with mediocre aim. I bet if the Batch tugged on his heart strings with "You were my brother, Crosshair! I loved you!" he'll snap back eventually, just like Anakin did.

I think the only reason Howser didnt lose his personality like the rest of the boys is the absence of the jedi on Ryloth. now you can bring up Crosshair and Wrecker. but these are 2 different type of people. Crosshair by nature is a sniper and meant to personally take out his targets. giving him more of a leaning to dark deeds. Wrecker on the other hand didnt try to shoot the jedi but thats also before he kept getting his head knocked around purposefully for the sake of plot, otherwise he wouldve just been unaffected like the rest of Bad Batch. For all intensive purposes Howser is a "reg" and every instance we've seen of a reg executing 66 theyve done it without question with jedi present. Jedi are like showing red to bees after 66 was issued. without that stimulus to Howser and his boys they were able to retain some of their previous 66 personalities. Howser more so because Clone Captains were bred to be more free thinking and authoritive.

If I ever run into Dave Filoni I’m asking for a Darth Bane trilogy.

It does introduce a new factor into everything we knew about Order 66. Darth Filoni is at it again. The man is a legend.

My theory:
The effects of the chip wear off over time. The more time passes after order 66, it becomes easier for the clones to fight against the chip and question their actions.
The chip is a short term solution and overwhelming when activated. Also i think that those clones that spend the most time with the jedi (captains, commanders) are the first clones that are able to fight against the chip, because they developed their personalities way more than the other clones. Thats probably why captains and commanders are always portrayed to look very unique.

I think Howzer's behavior has to do with the clones DNA being stretched too much over the years.
