Episode Summary

Red Alert emerges from below Cybertron; damaged, but functioning. The planet's surface appears trashed with debris from buildings and structures. Inside Unicron's core chamber, Optimus Prime and Galvatron notice the 3 Mini-Con weapons are linked to Unicron, wrapped under organic tendrils. Sideways exits Unicron's heart and he adopts the planet's voice as he tells his origin. Sideways is a shell of Unicron and he's been on Cybertron for eons, observing (and encouraging) the Transformers' war. Able to absorb their negative energy from fighting and hatred, Sideways powered Unicron enough to grow into the planet, now strong enough for total domination! Outside, the Armada is suffering losses, but then Sideswipe successfully blows up a hole in Unicron's neck. The jet fighters enter, dodging internal planetary defenses. Meanwhile, Galvatron and Prime are captured by the organic tendrils, which bond to Galvatron, putting him in suspended animation. With the matrix inside him, Prime is able to resist, and Sideways offers to allow Prime to merge with him. The jets blast Unicron from inside, then exit, destroying much of his head. But Unicron instantly repairs himself with his enormous power, still being fed by the Transformers' hatred. Inside the core chamber, the kids and their Mini-Cons show up and Sideways tells the Mini-Cons they weren't programmed for peace and are part of him. Highwire resists but Unicron manages to possess all the Mini-Cons. Outside, the glowing Mini-Cons disperse from their Unicron-form, giving the real Unicron direct access to Cybertron. Inside, the kids get captured and suspended by the tendrils, while Sideways offers to battle Prime, winner takes all. Unicron shows what's at stake by approaching right over Cybertron, ready to crush it. The kids seem to appear in Galvatron's throne room with his top Decepticons, and realize they are in Galvatron's fantasy, in a collective dream state. Alexis quickly pulls them out, and into her own forest fantasy, where they're surprised to see Highwire in the distance. They call out to his true consciousness, which angers Unicron, who threatens them. They're suddenly pulled into a peaceful fantasy with glowing Mini-Cons in the sky. Highwire has regained his will! Awakened, Highwire again stands up to Unicron and tells him the Mini-Cons believe in peace and will oppose him. United again, they begin to resonate the Mini-Con music! The glowing Mini-Cons pass through Unicron's body, disabling him and releasing all the captives in his core chamber. The 3 Mini-Con weapons finally disband and Prime and Galvatron are re-colored. With Unicron dormant again, Sideways exits his heart (in motorcycle mode), angered at the Mini-Cons, and tries to run down Highwire. Prime fatally blasts him with the Requiem Blaster. Sideways vows (a seemingly hollow) revenge and dies. The victorious coalition is ready to exit Unicron but Galvatron surprises Prime by telling him it is now time they battle!moreless
