Episode Summary

EDIT
Five Faces of Darkness (1)
AIRED:
Much has changed for the Transformers recently. Certainly, though, the Autobots are in the best possible position of all, controlling Cybertron. However, unknown assailants put a damper the situation, and at Ultra Magnus, Kup and Spike's expense at that. It seems logical for the Autobots to suspect the Decepticons, especially with a supposed witness around. Some truth about this situation awaits on Charr, ensuring surprises and danger. Meanwhile, Cyclonus and Scourge want Galvatron back to lead them.moreless

    A new level of sophistication has now entered the series, and it's no wonder these more adult and grim tales appeal more to older viewers (of which I am now one)

    I certainly recognised the spooky atmosphere of these post-movie episodes as a child and several (though not these early ones) have certainly stayed with me and one with my sister also.



    It is sad to see the Decepticons aimless and squabbling, and it's great that Rodimus recognises that. No longer are they so keen to take over as Decepticon leader... This theme of leadership being an unwanted burden is something that will continue all season, particularly with Rodimus.

    Part one sets up nicely a fantastic, ambitious five (!) part beginning to the new season. 8.5/10moreless
