  • Sentinel Prime mysteriously captures the most powerful Decepticons while the Autobots are wary of his methods and wonder if he's had assistance.

    Great episode! It featured tidbits of Prowl's past, his connection with Lockdown and origins and how he aspired to become a Ninja bot. The only thing missing was showing how Lockdown got the drop on Yoketron, their former sensai and his escape with the guarded Protoforms. In the episode, Prowl finally learned the "Processor over Matter" technique thanks to being captured by Lockdown's chicanery. Lockdown sabotaged the helmet he stole from Yoketron to capture Prowl, the Decepticons and to steal their modifications. It was interesting to see how Prowl and Lockdown's paths were connected to the past as former Yoketron students. It was even more interesting to see that Prowl was somewhat of a misfit in his younger stellar cycles.

    Sentinel Prime is bot that you love to hate with his holier-than-thou attitude. He may ultimately betray the Autobots at some point because he seems to be headed down the path of greed and avarice. He's beyond selfish and thrives to take all the glory for himself. It was good to see Optimus put him in his place after learning he hired Lockdown to capture a majority of the Decepticons. The Autobots, Prowl in particular were hot on Sentinel Prime's trail and soon learned that he enlisted Lockdown to help capture the Decepticons. As Sentinel tried to explain the error of coming to Lockdown for an aid, he was betrayed as the latest apparent Starscream clone offered more in energon and weaponry. Ultimately, Prowl saved the day by escaping and besting Lockdown by utilizing Processor over Matter.

    It was nice to see a cameo appearance from Cliffjumper and appearances with Jazz and the Autobot twins, Jetstorm and Jetfire. Hopefully, we'll see what happens with the Autobot traitor Longarm Prime/Shockwave and the stolen Magnus Hammer in the next installment.
