Episode Summary

Grimlock's New Brain
Anti-electrons are released and wreak havoc on whatever Transformers they encounter, as well as a power generator deep beneath Cybertron's surface. Grimlock takes a nasty hit himself before the Autobots tamp this problem down. Surprisingly, though, Grimlock is now the smartest Transformer of all. As part of his new genius attitude, he deduces that the Decepticons caused the trouble in the first place and what their next move is. Meanwhile, those were the last of Galvatron's anti-electrons. The dormant Unicron holds more, however – setting the stage for a showdown.moreless

    • Galvatron: Who are you?!
      Computron: Name: Computron. Primary goal: Obliterate Decepticons.

    • Computron: My computation capacity is nearly infinite. But I lack the intelligence to feed my capacity.
      Grimlock: Kneel, Computron. You will now receive my intelligence, Computron. (Computron kneels before Grimlock) And I will return to my former state.
      Computron: But Grimlock -
      Grimlock: Super intelligence is the only way you can defeat Abominus' brute force. It's the only way. (after the transfer) Me, Grimlock say you smart now. Me no can help you any more.

    • Afterburner: Come on, Technobots! Let's show 'em the stuff Grimlock made us of!

  • NOTES (7)

    • Omega Supreme is mentioned in this episode.

    • The Anti-Electrons seemed to have absolutely no effect on Grimlock. The other Autobots kept faltering in their presence, but Grimlock seemed to have some type of immunity that was never explained.

    • With all of the Autobots to choose from, it made little sense for Rodimus to choose Grimlock to be the one to turn on the generator. You might want a Dinobot in the thick of battle, but they had never been shown to be good at intricate operations. For that matter, bringing Grimlock along on the journey to the power core made little sense as well.

    • No origin is ever given for the Terrorcons. They are simply there.

    • Last appearance of Cosmos.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of the Terrorcons; Hun-Grr, Rippersnapper, Blot, Sinnertwin and Cutthroat, who combined, form into Abominus.

      Also the first appearance of the Technobots; Scattershot, Strafe, Lightspeed, Afterburner, and Nosecone, who combined, form into Computron.
