with the Flow
is a light hearted, fun, non-series-plot orientated one which is
great to watch if you're
in the mood for some sweet and simple entertainment.
The episode starts off with a view of a cave on
top of a mountain peak, from which a curious flashing light is being
emitted. The camera then zooms in on a section of the forest
where TM2 Cheetor is on the prowl. Something in the trees
above him makes a noise and he quietly transforms from beast mode
to robot mode, ready and on the alert. Suddenly, a small Neanderthal
jumps onto him from the trees and Cheetor falls down with a laugh.
It's Jock, his little Neanderthal friend, and a moment later, Una,
Jock's sister, hops down from her hiding place too! Cheetor
gives them the tip that when they're battling bots, it's best to
hack at the hinges. A noise causes all three to turn and see
Rattrap arriving in vehicle mode. The TM rat transforms, informing
Cheetor that he has orders to watch him.
Cheetor then goes on to give Jock and Una lessons
on basic tool making. He teaches them the pulley and the lever.
Back at the Predacons, Megatron and his troops are
busy setting up a huge disruptor cannon, the aim of which is to
destroy the Maximals with a powerful energon ray. However,
the energon is affecting all of them and in order for Megatron to
finish setting it up, he needs a non-cybertronian to finish the
job. He mentions the early humans would be perfect, were they
capable of following instruction. tarantulas notes that he
has, by use if his cyber-bug cams crawling the forest, discovered
the two smart anthropoids Cheetor has been training and suggests
Back with the good-brigade and Cheetor is trying
to teach the children how to make useful non violent tools.
However, he finds himself having to use violence himself when Waspinator
and Inferno appear! The Predacons open fire on Rattrap and
Cheetor, who return the favour. Una and Jock are left unattended
and while Inferno preoccupies the Maximals, Waspinator grabs Una
and flies away with her! Depth Charge arrives on the scene
and deals with a now out-numbered Inferno, ending the fight.
Cheetor has sustained a lot of damage and after a brief com.-chat
with Optimus, it is decided that Depth Charge and Rattrap would
rescue Una while Cheetor goes for repairs. The duo begin their
Meanwhile, Waspinator is having a bad time keeping
Una still. The smart kid remembers her lesson about 'hacking
at the hinges' and does just that! By the time Waspinator arrives
at the cave, he's a wreck and upon dropping off Una, he collapses
into a heap. Before Megatron can use Una, he has to deal with
an incoming Depth Charge and Rattrap. He commands Tarantulas
to fire a low-power test ray at the Maximals. The ray succeeds
in frying Depth Charge's energon circuits, causing the flying bot
to crash down into the mountains. Megatron has to shut off
the ray quickly as it is once again affecting everyone (except Una).
After a rough landing, Depth Charge and Rattrap
awake. Depth Charge is, until his energon circuits recover,
paralyzed, leaving it up to Rattrap to rescue Una.
Megatron has meanwhile started instructing Una to
finish setting up the ray. It takes a while and a lot of patience
(a difficult thing for Megatron) before she understands, but she
eventually gets the idea. When she finished her job, Megatron
commanded her to install a stabilizer crystal, which she appeared
to do. Megatron gleefully states that victory is before him,
while a sneaky Rattrap informs him that 'da rat' is behind him!
Megatron is caught off guard but so is Rattrap and Transmetal Dinobot
shoots the gun from out of the Maximals' hand and makes short work
of his tail spear as well. Meanwhile, Una has fled from a
hungry Tarantulas and is on top of a compression towel. She
uses a metal pole as a lever to push the towel onto Tarantulas,
but falls in the process. Rattrap transforms to vehicle mode
and catches, wasting no time to leave the cave and head back.
Megatron sends Inferno, Waspinator and TM2 Dinobot after them.
Rattrap goes back to Depth Charge and stresses on
how to push the larger bot to the water. Una points out that
they can use a stick as a lever. Rattrap agrees with her suggestion
and the two of them push Depth Charge into the water and begin paddling,
using him as a boat! Pursuing them are the Predacons and Rattrap
tries to fire at his opponents. Unfortunately, they come across
a waterfall and go over the edges, splashing into the plunge pool
below. when they emerge, they find they are still being chased
by the Predacons. Una once again suggests using a lever and Rattrap
uses his paddle to scoops up mud as they travel alongside the river
bank and flings the mud onto the face of Waspinator. Depth Charge
gets stuck between some large rocks in the river while on the river
bank, TM2 Dinobot prepares to destroy them. Waspinator cannot see
and crashes into Inferno, sending them both spiraling down onto
TM2 Dinobot! The three groggy Predacons slowly crawl out of their
heap and Megatron tells them via com. link to return back to the
gave, as the disruptor ray is ready and Depth Charge, Rattrap and
Una are in line with the maximal base!
In the Maximal base, Cheetor is repairing himself
while Rhinox observes for the first time that Megatron as built
the disruptor ray and is preparing to fire it!
In the cave, Megatron is confident his ray will
work and fires it, while Depth Charge and Rattrap, who have since
got out of the river, watch what they expect will be the coming
of their demise. However, the disruptor ray doesn't work,
and back fires on the Predacons, much to to confusion of everyone
including the Maximals.
Una smiles and takes out the stabilizer crystal
she was meant to install and outs it in her hair, saying: "Una
pretty!" Realizing what has happened, Rattrap and Depth
Charge dive into the river along with Una just as the disruptor
ray explodes. The explosion rocks the Maximal base and everyone
goes flying. When the explosion is over, Optimus looks at
his screen to see that the cave is indeed in a state of wreck.
Depth Charge has emerged out of the water and transforms
back into beast mode, allowing Rattrap and Una to use him once again
as a boat. Depth Charge says that the Predacons are probably
helpless back there, but Rattrap notes that neither are they in
fighting trim themselves and instead, the threesome paddle away
into the sunset.
