Episode 25 -
The time machine resembles a large portal instead of a Delorean. Oh well.
Short version of the theme song again.
The "Temporal Station" was built in 1939, but never able to work.
Chief referred to Heatwave as "Fire-Bot", his toy bot-type designation.
Whoops! The Bots got zapped into the portal with Dither.
Dr. Morocco already! He was there back in 1939? What a twist!
Morocco, that is. And Cody notes how he looks exactly the same in 1939 as he does in the present.
Hello, Elma Hendrickson.
Mrs. Neederlander as a kid. Voiced by Kath Soucie.
Morocco wants world domination. Typical.
And he has a "Chamber of Youth" to rejuvenate his life. So that's how he's still young.
So Frankie didn't fully know, but just now got confirmation of the Bots being alive.
Bumblebee! Optimus Prime! OH YEAH!
They left Dither. But couldn't go back for him.
And he's been found. Oh no.
Goodbye Griffin Rock, hello Moropolis.
Uh oh, it's the Morbot Gestapo.
To be continued...
Excellent episode. So much suspense, many twists, and fun surprises. And plenty of history too.
Episode 26 -
Heatwave said the word "Decepticons".
President Arthur's hologram is sentient.
Dither was reverse-engineered into MorBot version 1.1.
Charlie Burns is a janitor in the new timeline and has no son named Cody.
Charlie just got punched by a MorBot! On screen!
Huxlett Prescott is a Taxi driver and Luskey owns a restaurant.
Burns Auto Repair. The family business.
Morocco has been sealing up the island's tunnet in fear of rebellion. And he's always suspected the Burnses of being part of such a rebellion.
Dani doesn't like flying, yet Charlie still rocks his sexy bikini apron.
There's no Doc Greene on the island. Cody suspects he just lives elsewhere.
Morocco's wasting no time blasting at the Burns Auto Repair shop. This episode is the most violent yet!
Secret Weapon: MOBILE COMMAND HEADQUARTERS!!! I am SO buying that now! That thing is a BEAST!
Optimus: "Rescue Bots, roll out!"
Heatwave, "Hey, I like the sound of that."
YES!!! They're taking the MHQ with them!
They got Dither!
And they're back home! AND Doc Greene is now in on the secret!
This episode was every bit of awesomesauce I was hoping for and MORE! So much fun, so much excitement, and surprisingly darker and more violent than I expected. Man, I cannot wait for season 2! I haven't been this wowed by a whole TF cartoon season since Animated! And no Decepticons were necessary, even! All in all, I loved it. I absolutely loved it! We better get Dr. Morocco episodes in season 2, as the writing for those are above and beyond the standard for this series. And with such great effort put into these episodes, I can only hope for more. Rescue Bots, ROLL OUT!
