Episode 49 -
Now that we know from NYCC that the show's creators decided to change things into a serialized story format, the episode recaps without the "To be continued" screens make sense.
so, the final key is literally inside Smokescreen's chassis. Not just the key's power, but the whole physical object. Ouch.
So, back when Smokescreen blacked out during the Decepticon taking of the Hall of Records, Alpha Trion had no more time to launch the final key, and so knocked out Smokescreen, put the key inside him, and didn't tell Smoke so he wouldn't know where the last key was should he have been captured. Not to mention that a mobile key wouldn't have coordinates to provide to anyone, so A3 put a clue into the database instead.
So, that explains why the Phase Shifter doesn't make one fall through the floor. It's programmed with proper grounding.
Second use of the term "Emperor of Destruction" in an American Transformers cartoon!
The entire first Starscream scene was shown at yesterday's NYCC Transformers panel.
Optimus is unfamiliar with the lore of the Omega Keys.
Megatron used a Cortical Psychic Patch on Smokescreen to get the Omega Key info.
Even when stuck in a wall, Knock Out is ever an entertaining character.
The Jet Vehicons are referred to as "Flyers". First "Troopers" and now this. It's like they absolutely refuse to ever say the word "Vehicon" in this show.
BOOM! Megatron's in on the action too!
What the-?!! Smokescreen went through the ground?
LOL! Poor car Vehicon.
Wait, so Megatron's new arm doesn't affect his transformation. The pinkness doesn't even show up in his altmode. Guess they just didn't feel like making adjustments to his space jet mode's CG model.
Oh, so the bit of ground Smokescren went through was an elevated plateau. Eh, I'll let it slide this time. But hey better not get too crazy with making loopholes to the Phase Shifter's laws of physics.
DUDE! Starscream is a conniving dastard in this one! Using his clone's body as a decoy while he sneaks into the Autobot's base... GENIUS!
Business before pleasure, eh Screamer?
Now Starscream is the keymaster.
*GASP* FFFFFFFFFFFINALLY!!!! OPTIMUS GOT FURIOUSLY ANGRY AND YELLED OUT IN FRUSTRATION!!! A SIGN OF EMOTION!!! A SIGN OF EMOTION!!!!
And now he's back to pontificating. >_<
LOL at Knock Out, still stuck in the wall.
O hai, Dreadwing, where have you BEEN during all this?!
Pick a key, any key.
GREAT episode! Knock Out, Smokescreen, Starscream, Megatron, even Optimus for his spat of frustration, all got some great moments and characterization in this. and jus twhen things are looking up for the Autobots, it's Starscream who steals both the keys and the show itself for this episode. Smoke may have had his spotlight at first, but Screamer one-upped him in great performances this time around. Can't wait for more.
Next week, Starscream wants back in with the Cons and Megatron thinks he's nuts, to which Starscream replies, "Yeah, I was!"
