Blot speaks to Death's Head and offers him a bounty to kill Rodimus Prime. Meanwhile Prime has his own concerns and takes a couple of warriors to auobase to check out some fortifications, during the trip he reflects on his days as Hot Rod and the death of Firebolt. At the Decepticon stronghold, Shockwave tells Cyclonus and Scourge about Death's Head being hired to kill Prime, which doesn't sit well with them so they go to find and kill him on their own. Back to Prime, his warrior protection is taken out by Death's Head and during a fight with him the two plummet to a underground tunnel. Death's Head takes advantage of how Prime landed and levels his gun to his head.
