the episode, we see a shot of the Darkside. But, wait!
It’s not the Darkside, it’s a computer model. The view
of the Darkside turns into an aerial view and several
points are placed around the image of the Maximal base.
It seems that Dinobot is looking up something. The pattern
that the points make is then compared to a symbol from
the Golden Disk. There is definitely a pattern.
concludes that Megatron’s plans continue even without
the disk and wonders what the tyrants reaction would be
if he switched back to the Predacons’ side. The raptor’s
thoughts are interrupted when he receives a call from
Optimus, who wants him to lead a mission into Predacon
territory. Dinobot gives his computer screen one last
look before he heads out.
next see Dinobot leading the mission on his favorite mode
of transportation (Rat Patrol!). Of course, Rattrap is
annoying Dinobot along the way about his serious attitude
about the job that Optimus asked him to do. Silverbolt
then reports to Dinobot that he found a jamming station
but no Predacons in the area. Dinobot instructs the fuzor
to be backup as he and Rattrap go in to investigate.
they go, Rattrap comments that it looks like they are
walking right into an ambush. Sure enough, Inferno suddenly
springs out of the ground. The crazy ant knocks Rattrap
out of the way and charges at Dinobot. Dinobot, however,
(‘cause he’s got superb skill) flips (the flip! The one
I watched in slow motion about eleventy billion times.
Just look at that technique…@_@…*repays the scene a few
more times*… ahem) out of the way.
Dinobot deals with Inferno, Rattrap has his own problems
to worry about. Quickstrike comes from behind and tells
the rat to holster his weapon unless he wants to get shot.
Rattrap does but quickly draws his weapon again, hitting
the fuzor and dodging the Pred’s blast (pretty cool move
but not as cool as…the flip! *repays the flip scene again*).
Quickstrike hangs off a cliff but not for long when Rattrap
shoots him off.
Dinobot is stuck behind a rock to avoid Inferno’s firepower
(Man, Dinobot, how many times are you going to get pinned
behind a rock (or the Maximals’ table) because of Inferno?
That’s it, time to cheer for the ant. Go, Inferno! Kick
his traitorous tail! For the Royalty! ) Silverbolt spots
Dinobot having trouble so he flies down to help. Waspinator
shoots him in the back ( Hey, Waspi can’t have a bad day
all the time. He gets to shoot somebody down and he hasn’t
gotten blown up…yet. Wow! ) and Silverbolt goes tumbling
runs out of ammo ( Huh? When does that ever happen? Inferno,
run out of firepower?!? *gasp!* ) and Dinobot was about
to make his move when the bird-dog crashes into him and
gets knocked out. Inferno comments that Waspinator served
the Royalty well but Waspi’s still feeling good about
today and says that he rulez. Quickstrike’s not, still
being upset that Rattrap shot him.
flies back to the base with Dinobot. Waspinator tries
to carry Silverbolt but he’s too heavy. He asks Quickstrike
for help but the fuzor walks off. Rattrap, hiding behind
a rock, imitates Quickstrike’s voice to trick Waspinator.
The rat throws a device and tells the bug to press the
switch on it. Waspination does and is knocked out by the
gas in the device ( and so concludes the good day that
Waspinator no longer has).
the Predacon base, the Preds have the still unconscious
(Or is he?) Dinobot caged. Tarantulas thinks that they
should destroy him but Megatron has other plans. Blackarachnia
and Quickstrike hold the raptor while Tarantulas holds
a device that would shock him awake. Dinobot, however
(again because of his skills ), frees himself, knocks
the Preds down, transforms, and points his blade to Megatron’s
chest in a matter of seconds.
is impressed but points out that if he gets damaged, his
troops will fire. Dinobot points out to him that he might
get shot too but that would be a waste of two Predacons.
Megatron is a little surprised at Dinobot’s statement,
saying that he thought Dinobot was a Maximal now. Dinobot
says that things have changed and bows ( Nooo! He can’t
bow to that guy! He…he, has a rubber ducky for crying
out loud!) down ( * shakes head * Why, Dinobot? Why!?!?)
and offers his sword to Megatron.
Silverbolt is awake and feels bad about what happened.
He wants to go rescue Dinobot but Rattrap tells him that
he needs to fly past the jamming station to call the other
Maximals while he searches for the raptor. The rat tells
Silverbolt that he will contact him when he finds Dinobot
and heads off.
at the Pred base, Dinobot is still kneeling ( *Gah!!*
). Megatron is not convinced and thinks it is a weak attempt
at saving Dinobot’s hide. Dinobot explains that he thought
Megatron brought them to the wrong planet and was betrayed,
so he had joined the Maximals. Now, however, he believes
that Megatron will win the war and changes his activation
wants to verify that Dinobot is really a Predacon now
but Megatron doesn’t like that idea. Blackarachnia suggest
that Dinobot face ( The Predacon Challenge!! ) Quickstrike
in one-to-one combat. Dinobot agrees, not thinking that
is would be much of a challege.
two Preds face off. ( *like in the Cable Guy* You’re goin’
down Quickstrike! Quickstrike’s goin’ down! Down, down,
down!) Dinobot beast modes and lunges at the fuzor but
Quickstrike dodges him. He fires two blasts of cyber venom.
Dinobot dodges them but they hit Blackarachnia and Tarantulas.
Megatron is very amused. Dinobot pins Quickstrike down
but the fuzor flips over and strikes (That’s way they
call him Quickstrike lol) down with his tail. Dinobot
bites it and tosses him aside. Quikestrike’s upset about
his tail getting bitten so he transforms and shoots at
Dinobot. Dinobot transforms too and counters the attack
with his eye lasers. Dinobot’s beam out powers Quickstrike’s
and the fuzor is blown back. Quickstrike asks if that’s
all Dinobot’s got and (unless you’re watching the edited
version) Dinobot finishes him off with one final blast.
throws him back his sword and tells him to finish him
( And, seeing the edited version I had to agree with him).
Dinobot says that he would make a good soldier with training
and Megatron slowly agrees. He tells Inferno to aid Quickstrike
and the ant does but not without calling him the “Q” word.
Dinobot is a little puzzled (I give him three stars for
talking with Megatron after that with a straight face
‘cause I could do that after someone calling him Queen)
and Megatron explains that Inferno has faulty programming.
Dinobot has rejoined the Predacons, Megatron asks him
to give him back the Disks. Dinobot tells him that he
gave the alien disk to Rhinox but the other one was hidden.
The raptor tells him that he will get it for tomorrow
but Megatron wants it now (Wah, wah, wah. “I want it back
now.” Big baby…).
the next scene, Rattrap sees Megatron carrying Dinobot
and follows them. Megatron and Dinobot lands and Dinobot
gets the Disk from under a rock and gives the disk to
Megs. Megatron states that he will change the history
of their race with the disk but Dinobot thinks he might
also destroy it. Megatron assures him that he knows what
he’s doing and prepares to hit Dinobot in the back when
Rattrap suddenly shoots him.
knowing what Megatron was going to do to him, Dinobot
retaliates and shoots Rattrap. Megatron is please then
aims at the fallen rat. Dinobot thinks it would be unnecessary
to kill him but Megatron wants a final test of Dinobot’s
loyalty. Dinobot walks over with his sword drawn, ready
to kill the rat. After a few tense moments, Dinobot can’t
do it. Megatron tries to strike him from behind again
but Dinobot counters it. He tells Megatron that he will
destroy everything with his plans. Megatron tells him
to return to the Maximals and flies off.
and Silverbolt come to the scene and ask what happened.
Rattrap tells them about what was going on with Dinobot’s
betrayal. Dinobot says it is true and explains that he
thought that he wanted to be a part of Megatron’s plans.
He asks if he can join with them to stop the tyrant’s
plot and after some consideration (and some complaining
from Rattrap) Optimus lets him back in. The Maximal leader
and Silverbolt fly off leaving Dinobot alone with Rattrap.
The rat offers him a ride then asks why he didn’t kill
him. Dinobot tells him that he will chose when that will
happen. Rattrap says that he’s glad to have him back and
they lived happily ever after. The end.
