  • Who would have thought

    I was quite interested in how this episode came to be. First off with Blurr annd Omega Supreme being brought back into the flow of things. I loved it when Starscream split up his personalities to create the clones. Never would have thought as the Arc being Omega Supreme. Very clever. I was a little bummed when some of the robots they just introduced were sucked into the warp whole. Wonder if they'll show back up again.

    When Sari's arm was scratched and it revealed robotic parts, I couldn't believe it. I hope that she doesn't turn out to be a complete robot. Half human, half cyborg would be great with me. I'll be happy with that. Loved Meagatron and Starscream at the end arguing. Granted the first time I saw it, it was interupted but then it was played again with them being able to be heard. Can't wait for the next season.moreless
  • An interesting finale. (Review for both pt 1 and 2).

    Compared to last season's finale, this is hard to match up.

    I suppose I'll get the complaints out of the way. The whole thing seemed kind of rushed. We're introduced to awesome characters like Blurr and the Clones in part 1, and Omega Supreme in part 2; only to have Blurr and most of the Clones sucked into the Bridge, and Omega Supreme destroying himself in order to save everyone else. If you're going to get rid of characters (hopefully temporarily), get rid of the Constructicons. Also, the ending had the same feeling (in my opinion) as the Transformers movie ending. At the end, NO ONE notices Blurr is gone ("Did everyone make it out online?" "All but one" [referring to Omega]), and everything's hunky-dory.

    However, a couple things made up for this. Firstly, the introduction of Blurr as a character was a brightener. John Moschitta Jr. does an amazing job with his voice and, aside from what people say, his voice is understandable while still being fast, which had an awesome comedic effect. Starscream's Clones were great as well. Their color scheme references to G1 Decepticons was a nice touch. I am interested to know what side of him the femme-bot came from.

    The ultimate clincher, however, was the revelation that Sari is indeed at least part robot. It was a theory I had rejected as too simple, but now it appears I was wrong. But thanks to this, I am even more itching to see season 3. I expect a lot of great things.

    Overall, it could not beat the last season's finale, Megatron Rising. It was a bit of a mixed bag. However, it had many saving graces, like the characters and revelations. And saying that this wasn't my favorite episode is like comparing chocolate to peanut butter--it's still great!moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Female Starscream Clone: What are you doing? Aim for Megatron's spark chamber!
      Starscream: Aim for his spark chamber?! Don't tell me how to slag Megatron. I was slagging Megatron when you were still a gleam in my spark!
      Female Starscream Clone: And look how well that turned out...

    • Egomaniac Starscream Clone: A mere construction bot is no match for my superior firepower!
      Mixmaster: Oh, really? Well, you know where you can stick it! (Sprays him with cement)
      Egomaniac Starscream Clone: (Struggles) Impossible! You cannot defeat me! You are not worthy, you are inferior, and your joke stinks!

    • Prowl: More Starscream Clones?
      Optimus Prime: How is that even possible?
      Blurr: Based on the unusuallly high level of AllSpark energy emanating from Starscream, one can only assume that he somehow acquired more AllSpark fragments, and used their life-giving properties to bring the Clones online.
      Bumblebee: (To Optimus Prime) Aren't you sorry you asked?

    • Bulkhead: Don't get your circuits in a bunch. The space bridge is useless without a receiving code, and for that Megatron, well, he'd already need to have someone on Cybertron.
      Bumblebee: Don't you remember anything? The communication broadcast I picked up; Wasp, the Deception spy I caught back in bootcamp?
      Shockwave: You mean the spy we caught in bootcamp, don't you Bumblebee?
      Bumblebee: How do you know my name?
      Shockwave: (transforms into Longarm Prime) Surely you remember your old pal, Longarm?
      Bumblebee: So... Wasp wasn't a double agent? Which means...
      Bulkhead: You sent an innocent bot to the stockade.

    • Omega Supreme: (About the Decepticons) There's too many! I'm not ready!
      Ratchet: You can do this, old friend! I believe in you!
      Sari Sumdac: That makes one of us...

    • Ratchet: Careful not to fire on our friends!
      Sari Sumdac: And try to get a visual on my dad!
      Omega Supreme: Sure. What's a dad?

    • Angry Blitzwing: You overgrown Autobot! I will scramble your circuits so bad you'll need a GPS scanner to find your own exhaust port. (Omega Supreme headbutts Blitzwing, sending him flying)
      Crazy Blitzwing: Mayday! Mayday! Let's all dance around ze maypole!

    • Optimus Prime: I still don't see where all this "expertise" came from.
      Bulkhead: I had a lot of time studying space bridge schematics back on the energon farm. I just had a knack for 'em, I guess.
      Bumblebee: Oh, well, that's great. So the one thing you're good at is going to hand Cybertron over to the Decepticons.

    • Bumblebee: (About Prowl's humming) Will you please stop that stupid humming?
      Prowl: This 'stupid humming' is a focusing technique. A cyber-ninja can use processor over matter to remove these stasis cuffs.
      Bulkhead: You can really do that?
      Prowl: In theory... I haven't actually completed my cyber-ninja training.

    • Professor Sumdac: (After taking Starscream's head off using the Headmaster Unit) Total ownage, Noob!

    • Megatron: Stop staring at me!
      Starscream: No, you stop staring at me!
      Megatron: Do you think I actually want to spend the rest of eternity gazing at your unsightly visage?
      Starscream: Trust me: your visage is no picnic either! And your face is ugly too!
      Megatron: Someone just take me offline now.
      Starscream: What do you think I was trying to do for the last four million stellar cycles? (Cracks up laughing) It's funny if you really think about it... Tragic but funny! (Laughs some more)
      Megatron: Oh, shut up.

    • Liar Starscream: (After Prowl puts him in stasis cuffs) I'm not down! I can escape any time I want to... I just don't want to.

    • Starscream: It's not like you to hide behind an Autobot.
      Megatron: But it's completely like you to hide behind an army of cheap knockoffs.

    • Bulkhead: Come on professor, we have to shut down the space bridge.
      Professor Sumdac: Why did you make it work in the first place?! What were you thinking?!
      Bulkhead: This coming from the guy that rebuilt Megatron.
