As several fans of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” have pointed out, Wrecker seems to have a knack for hitting his head. Wrecker’s injuries were an ongoing gag in earlier episodes, which led to his inhibitor chip activating.
Here is every time Wrecker hit his head in “Star Wars: The Bad Batch.” Prepare for several undiagnosed concussions.
Episode Two: “Cut and Run”
In this episode, Wrecker bumps his head on a pipe while in disguise. Besides cutting and running, Wrecker is also bumping.
Episode Three: Replacements
In the chaos of a crash landing due to Tech’s negligence for ship repairs, Wrecker hits his head. He proceeds to complain about a headache later in the episode. Someone really needs to get this clone an ice pack.
Episode Four: Cornered
Fennec Shand throws Wrecker headfirst into a wall during this episode, showing the clone he shouldn’t underestimate bounty hunters.
Episode Five: Rampage
Near the opening of this episode, Wrecker has a rampaging headache but shrugs it off. When the Bad Batch is rescuing Muchi the Rancor, Wrecker headbutts the creature to assert dominance.
Fellow Clone Force 99 member Tech wasn’t kidding when he said that Wrecker “is losing his touch” while headbutting the Rancor.
Episode Six: Decommissioned
Wrecker’s head should probably be decommissioned at this point. He hits his head on a lever while swinging across a platform during this episode. The impact bothered Wrecker, to the point of muttering “good soldiers…” and passing out.
Since a famous phrase for Clone Troopers following Order 66 is “good soldiers follow orders,” this moment teased doom for Wrecker. Combining that with his fear of heights, this certainly was not the best day for the clone.
Episode Seven: Battle Scars
This episode turns a running gag into a vital plot point. When Wrecker complains about yet another headache, Captain Rex gets concerned and takes the Bad Batch to get their inhibitor chips taken out. Unfortunately, Wrecker’s chip activates, causing him to turn on his clone squad.
Wrecker hits his head twice, once while swinging on a rope and the other when Hunter smacks him with metal.
Wrecker goes from a ticking Order 66-time bomb to a head trauma patient when his chip gets removed. At least he has the battle scars to show from it.
Episode Eight: Reunion
Despite no longer having his chip, Wrecker has another reunion with a head injury in this episode. While holding onto a Scrapper’s speeder, Wrecker’s head gets hit multiple times during the chase.
Wrecker in Later Episodes
In later episodes of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch,” the writers seem to have given Wrecker’s head a deserved break. Since guest characters like Fennec, Cad Bane, and Hera Syndulla from “Star Wars: Rebels” seize the spotlight, Wrecker takes a back seat.
Either way, Wrecker should be screened for any head injures. Unless the Mantell Mix Wrecker and Omega like to eat after a successful mission has healing properties, he should be more careful.
