Episode Summary

Billy and Fred argue about the Transformers, and their origin, when they spot Rad, Carlos and Alexa riding off in the distance. They speed off to catch up, but stop short of finding them as the children enter a forest. Cyclonus manages to find the children on what appears to be a survelance run, and corners Rad against a tree. He manages to drive Cyclonus off briefly with a shot from Laserbeak, but Cyclonus finds the two bullies and grabs them, taking them hostage. He yells back to Rad that he will trade the kids for the Autobot's Mini-Cons. Rad sends Laserbeak to follow them, and the children report back to the base. The Autobots agree they have to save Billy and Fred, and when Red Alert locks onto Cyclonus's coordinates where the Autobots warp out to his position. They find themselves in a deserted town, were Demolishor, Cyclonus and Starscream are in hiding. Billy and Fred are held captive in an abandoned warehouse, where Leader-1 keeps guard over them. The Autobots arrive in the area where the bullies are being held, and transform to negotiate with the Decepticons. The children take off on their Mini-Cons, while we see Fred and Billy wrestle with their captor. A battle starts between the Autobots and Decepticons, and the kids find the building where the bullies are being held. Their Mini-Cons enter the building while the Autobots take on the Decepticons outside. Sureshock, Grindor and Highwire surround Leader-1 while the fighting continues outside, and Jolt joins Hot Shot to fight Cyclonus. Meanwhile, inside the building, Megatron suddenly transforms from under the rubble in the warehouse and takes the children and Mini-Cons hostage. Megatron demands the rest of the Mini-Cons from the Autobots, and Optimus reluctantly agrees to his demands. He signals Red Alert to send Long Arm and Jolt to the Decepticons. Somehow, a shock from Laserbeak manages to stun the giant Decepticon and the children escape, while Megatron falls to the ground. The Autobots scramble to attack, only to be stopped as Megatron captures Rad and demands that they all stop. Fred realizes that he has to do something runs at Megatron with Laserbeak, and Megatron sends Leader-1 to stop him. A brief pause in the action by Leader-1 was all that necessary for Hot Shot to take the initiative to punch Megatron, releasing Rad and then giving the Autobots the advantage. Knowing better than to face the Autobots and their Mini-Cons without support, Megatron berates Cyclonus for his plan and warps back to base. Rad introduces the Autobots to Billy and Fred, and now the secret is out....moreless
