Episode 49 -
Megatron's gloating at the beginning really shows that he was more concerned about showing up Optimus than acquiring the relic.
Knock Out's sudden wanting to go after this relic really doesn't get an explanation. I mean, why now, of a times, does he want to go get this relic, instead of during any of the previous times following the events of "Hurt"?
Smokescreen really feels like he should be Hot Rod/Hot Shot, but then his line about destiny stands out from that since the typical Hot Rod/Shot character didn't reach their destined positions by thinking they were supposed to. To them, it just happened. Here, however, smoke thinks he's supposed to become great.
"Destiny's child". LOL
Hey, Knock Out got away with the relic. That was quick. And Megatron really doesn't know what it is.
Oh wow, they're going after the third one in the same episode. I'm liking this good pace.
Bulkhead and Dreadwing have a Matrix
So wait, how come Dreadwing's bomb is so easy to remove this time when it wasn't so in previous cases?
The key was just buried under some rocks? Smoke, can't you see that when things are that easy they never really are? You had much better intuition than that before. Then again, I guess this keeps him from getting more Gary Stu-ish, so kudos to him having some personal flaws.
Sneak attack from Snake Eyyy-I mean Soundwave. And he got the third Key. Two wins for the villains in the same episode. Wow.
It wasn't Soundwave being ninja-like, it was Starscream
using Red Energon. And he overheard Bulkhead talking about Alpha Trion and the Omega Keys. Snap!
Laserbeak has been sent out to seek the proximity of the Autobot's base.
Both sides have decoded the final entry... but there's something different. Instead coordinates, it's bringing up an image.
the last relic?!
By a stroke of luck, Laserbeak has spotted Smokescreen.
Soundwave got him! What took the Autobots so long to bridge to his location?
The end? And without a "To be continued..."?
Holy smokes. This was a huge episode. All sides played a role, and the stakes really felt high this time. We also got more insight on how and why Smokescreen just happened to wind up on Earth. Things also really feel like endgame, as though this could be the end of the series instead of just the second season. It'll be tough for season 3 to top this unless Beast Hunters really blows us away. And, for the second episode in a row, no humans. Go figure.
Next week, Smokescreen is a hostage and being held by Knock Out, he tires to escape but can he? And the Bots also fight Starscream (this trailer was shown during the end credits of the repeat of last episode that aired after this episode).
