Episode Summary

The Channel 4 Weather crew is reporting from a camping/forest recreational area. A noisy kid runs through the cameras view...... cut to "intro" Alexis riding Sureshock to the base presumably, commenting on how a vacation and some R & R would be nice. Cut to the base.... Scavenger and Hot Shot are engaged in training, Scavenger easily pins Hot Shot.... ALARM! Could it be a Mini-Con? The Autobot crew rushes to the launch gate. Optimus then announces there is no Mini-Con to be found, but they are going on a camping trip for some R & R. Alexis had not been notified, and arguing ensues amongst the kids. Alexis chooses to stay behind instead of going with her friends. Cut to the Decepticon Moonbase - Megatron insists on starting Decepticon 1 on 1 training, while he wields the Star Sabre. He searches for a volunteer, but chooses Sideways after he makes a comment about he should have stayed with the Autobots. A chase ensues.... Red Alert and Smokescreen are creekside, while the kids play in the river basin. Long Arm attaches to Red Alert so he can swing the kids out into the river via his crane. The Weather 4 News Van drives by up ahead, and slows down when the reporter spots the kids playing and the vehicles that they are with. The reporter gets a glance at Grindor and Highwire in Red Alert's cab before having to drive off, but her driver doesn't seem to notice. While a storm approaches on the horizon, the child from earlier in the episode joins the kids in their play. When the rain starts coming down, the kids camp out inside Red Alert and Smokescreen's cabs. There is a flash flood alert and if the flood rises, the damn in the distance will overflow into the area. The kid from earlier is across the basin, and Red Alert and Carlos rush across to save him. They are too late, and get caught up in a landslide caused by the downpour. The two children are buried underneath the mud inside Red Alert. Prime and Alexis are in the base, and radio to Red Alert... once they find out about the accident, Optimus, Scavenger, and Hot Shot rush to the rescue. The Weather 4 team is back on the scene, trying to uncover the Autobots secret. The reinforcements arrive, with the Scavenger and Smokescreen beginning to uncover Red Alert, Carlos, and the kid. The father of the guest child arrives and is ushered inside Hot Shot. Red Alert is freed! Laserbeak flies out and attacks the reporter, causing her to drop her camera. The nearby damn's floodgates have opened, and floodwaters race toward the group. Prime blocks the river using his trailer, while Scavenger braces behind him. Red Alert, Smokescreen, and the others escape using Red Alert's grappling line, scaling up the ravine to safety. The skies clear, the child is returned to his parents, and the Autobots disappear from the scene. The weather reporter returns to her van with footage she taped of the scene... claiming that she has proof of giant robots. There is no real evidence that the driver sees however, as both do not note the rather poorly shot footage of the Autobots escaping from the flood. Sureshock and Alexis are fussing at the base when the Autobots return. Alexis and Carlos fuss, before Carlos jokes on Alexis and is chased off through the base.moreless
