HIS RECAP CONTAINS THE BAD BATCH SPOILERS.

The Bad Batch returns from a dangerous mission to discover an old ally. Wrecker’s headache isn’t getting any better, and the group has no choice but to fix the problem once and for all.

Over the next few months, we’ll follow up each new episode of The Bad Batch with a quick recap while you’re excitedly yelling in our Discord (don’t forget those spoiler tags!) and waiting for our weekly Bounty Hunt live stream. 

While we’ll stick to recapping each episode here, both our Discord and Bounty Hunt will be perfect places to discuss reactions and predictions for what’s to come. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW.

You think you’re ready. You’re not.

Omega and The Dad Batch return from another dangerous mission to find Captain Rex laying low (until he pulls a Kenobi and draws a weapon indoors - why do they keep doing that?). It’s a warm reunion until Uncle Wrecker starts complaining about his headache.

The last time Rex had to deal with inhibitor chips, it involved burying an entire battleships’ worth of his brothers. Not cool. But once the Batch agrees to have them removed, he calms down enough to ask them to rendezvous on Bracca.

What’s on Bracca, you ask? A Jedi cruiser with a medical bay just like the one Ahsoka Tano used to remove Rex’s chip during Order 66.

The closer the group gets to removing Wrecker’s chip, the worse his headache gets -- until he snaps into Good Soldier Mode, attacks his brothers, and pursues Omega.

Just as he’s cornered her, unable to control his impulse to terminate her, Rex hits him with a stun blast long enough to allow the Batch to get him back to the medial bay and remove his chip. The rest of the group has theirs removed successfully as well.

Wrecker tries to apologize to Omega for going after her, but she gives him a peace offering, understanding the chips and that he didn’t mean to hurt her on purpose.

Rex and the Batch part ways after Hunter tells him he can contact them whenever needed.

All seems right again. But the Batch has been spotted, and the Empire will be on their trail again soon enough.
