  • It´s a good episode, but I don´t like it.

    How they can do that to a hero? A hero like Optimus Prime? Man, when I saw this episode in my chilhood, I really get pissed off (even today, I´m still pissed off with it). The writers makes Optimus Prime return from the death, that´s cool, but he was reprogrammed to betray his friends. Can somebody tell my why has to be him? Can´t be Ironhide or Ratchet who must to die? A hero NEVER dies. At least in this episody, it´s clearly who is the best: Optimus Prime defated Rodimus even when Optimus was very damaged and lost his left arm; Optimus recover his mind, saves the Autobots and survives the attack of the Quintessons. For me, Optimus Prime is the HERO.
