As the fighting on Cybertron goes on, back on Earth, the Constructions have created Trypticon, who attacks the still transforming cog-less Metroplex. Sky Lynx is sent to retrieve the cog from Wheelie and Blurr, and ends up fighting off the new Predacons before making it back to Earth. The cog is given to Metroplex during the battle, and he throws Tryptie over the horizon. Blitzwing discovers that there is no Decepticon Matrix.
On Cybertron, the Quints sneak past the distracted Deceps and Autobots and activate a immobilization device, which they had previously tried unsuccessfully to use to stop the revolt of the Transformers. All Transformers are immobilized, but Spike isn't and manages to reverse the freeze ray. After the Quints escape, the fighting is called off by Blitzwing, who forces Galvatron to retreat for the time being.
