I was also thinking between A and B but in the first case and then in the second, after the comma it does not seem redundant in the sentence considering that the subject seems to be clear ......

It's B. We either need "and" or "that" to complete the sentence.

Agreed that the sentence would sound better with "and," but it`s the best of the lot.

The choice was between A and B.
B is the best available option.
"and" would have made B even more better.
