Episode Summary

EDIT
The Return of Optimus Prime (1)
AIRED:
Ship alloy testing leads Jessica Morgan and the Transformers hating Gregory Swafford to inadvertently stumble upon two things – the ship Optimus was last seen on and the Hate Spores. The former Autobot leader's body is still intact, and while this is knowledge worth sharing with the team, Gregory has other ideas. When a later battle involving Protectobots, Technobots and Terrorcons injures Jessica, her father comes around to the same thinking. Thus, they lure the Autobot team to Optimus' body and release the Hate Spores. This works too well, however, as the infection rate grows exponentially. Among the few uninfected is Sky Lynx, who works to revive the only one that can end the Hate Plague – Optimus himself.moreless
