In my opinion, this is where the series begins. Everything up until now was just for us to get used to the characters. with Megatron having his own body, things are really gonna heat up.

I think were going to be screwed over as they won't show Megs until the last few seconds with a new body, but I'm sure it will still be a good episode.

That face Prime had at the end of the episode was the same face I had after watching this.

I knew Megatron's body was in the mine, I was kinda hoping for that to be found instead of some possesion plot, but whatever...

This series isn't realy apealing to me, however the writing and dialog at time has its moments.

I'm not expecting anything great, but I hope its good. More importantly, I hope it speeds up the overall plot. 3 months in and still nothing has happened outside of some girl misusing an all powerful key, and no one taking it away from her!?!



I hate quoting myself, but I was actualy very pleased, one of the first things that happened, they took that idiot key away. Of course they lost it anyway, but that also had dismeberment, so it's all good.

I like the way alot of side issued got wrapped up and elaborated on to. The little fat guy being pulled through the ground was cool to!

Very nice to finaly see some Decepticons! I hate when stories only focus on the Autobots reguardless of what series it is.

So over all I liked it. It left Prime looking like he just crapped himself!

Awesome episode. I liked how they worked the Dinobots in, even if it was only for a cameo. Hopefully, they'll show up in Part 2 to help the Autobots. Im sure they will.

Megatron's resurrection was done very well. I had goosebumps as he pulled himself together. It was good seeing the 'cons as the baddies again instead of more human villians. Can't wait to see the all-out battle they have next week.

They are going to have to rebuild Detroit if the Dinobots show up. I never thought I'd actually look forward to more Dinobots.

I bet what will happen next week is autobot reinforcement will show up from cybertron and help out. I can't wait to see the second half of the episode next week. I wish they had done it as an hour long special unstead of showing a rerun of ben 10 before animated since the original ben 10 series has ended, and they are get ready to start a whole new series just like with the original justice league.

Well, the way I see it, the autobots are screwed. I'm guessing that they'll be saved by either the Dinobots or Sari.

I know, I think it was stupid of them not to do so. YTV just showed a bad Fantastic 4 rerun after Animated. They should have aired the second part instead.

Amazing episode though. It was definately focused on the Decepticons for the first time in this series. I loved the whole episode. I could hear all the fans screaming "YES!" when Prime took the Key from Sari. Anyone else feel like Kaye was using BW Megatron a little in that scene? And BA was in it. After her appearance, I was expecting Lockdown and Soundwave to come back too. I hope FanTransformers uploads it to YouTube soon so I can watch it again.

BTW, what happened to Sumdac? He was sitting on Megatrons hand when he started to be reformatted. His hand closed and went through the floor and then when it was on his arm, Sundac was gone. :-?

SO how long do you think before this series is on DVD?? Cartoon Network has been pretty good about getting their programs out fairly quickly- See "Ben 10" box sets on store shelves now- especially the ones the get good ratings as TF:Ani does. Since I'm a second shifter at heart, I haven't been able to wake up in time to watch the shows...

I'm sure this series will get five seasons sice that's the usual run for shows on Cartoonnetwork. The ep. was awsome, loved what they did with Megs and Starscream.CN should've made it an hour long special like Transform and roll out

I believe June is when we have the first officially slated at coming out at this point.

This episode really focused on Prime's ineptitude as a leader...or to be nicer, his inexperience.

How he handled Sari, well I know some people on here were cheering him, but I felt bad, and the fact that he could not take the key from her himself that was just pathetic. Make Ratchet do it instead. :-x

Of course, Sari reacted like any child would, if she didn't it would have been odd. She did have a good point, but also I do agree that Prime had to make sure to tell her that while a part of the team, she was not a physical combatant in the war. Why couldn't they leave her on 'the Ark' with the key, Ratchet, and the Allspark?

I found it a rather odd coincidence that Black Arachnia just happens to show up and want the key again, at this very point, when the other cons seemed to want it too, and Prime decided that he wanted it to be safe with the Allspark. I know coincidences happen, but WHOA :shock: !


Bumblebee's reaction was good. I like that he showed some loyalty to his friend, and I am surprised that Bulkhead did not join with him.

Prime's insistence that his ideas are the only right ones seems so odd. Not seeing Prowl's logic, not caring about the fact that the dinos are living creatures now, it was very new.

Since Grimmie and Megs seem to have the same strength level in their bios, I imagine that Grimmie and Megs will go toe to toe soon, now that Megs has his body back.

Overall, a very good episode. Starscream was great, and the return of Blitzwing and Lugnut was also good. Finally the Decepticons are together and going to cause some trouble!

It would've been a bad idea to take Sari to the Ark because the Decepticons would go there to get the allspark. Prime has finally got some lugnuts, the other Autobots should realize this is a dangerous situation and that they should respect Prime's orders. I actually hope BB gets beat up by the Decepticons for doing such a stupid thing.
