    I can’t watch the episode until it airs here in Canada next week, do you want to spoiler tag who you are referring to?

    Episode Rundown
    Warning Spoilers
    Episode starts with Bumblebee, alone, bored on the stolen Decepticon Scout Ship. He decides to use Cordical Psychic Patch to find something "fun" in his memories. One of his memories are unlocked from the time he visited Planet Velocitron, basically Planet Hotwheels, with some friends via spacebridge in the middle of the city. Hot Rod and Blur are introduced. Blur is a native of Velocitron. Blur and Hotrod have an ego measuring contest on who is faster.
    Bumblebee is bumped in to by a Transformer, suspiciously in a hurry, dropping some suitcases. He is a recolored Wheeljack with purple eyes. Bumblebee is at first suspicious, but brushes it off.
    Then, on the Monitors that are spread around the city, Bee listens to an urgent news story about the spread of Cosmic Rust that has already consumed half a planet across the galaxy recently.
    Bee is reminded of the stranger, but is distracted by Hot Rod and Blur making their way to one of the race tracks and tells Bumblebee to hurry up. Hot Rod is called "Hot Shot" by Blur. They race with Blur in the lead. They're race is interrupted by some debris on the road. When suddenly a Drop Ship comes crashing down on their path, and notice it covered in rust. The rust spreads rather quickly.
    The three Autobots manage to escape and make their way to Blur's hideout. They try to think of what to do, but Blur assures them they are safe there. An Occupant of Velecitron manages to get in and is infected with Cosmic Rust, he crumbles to dust and spread to the hideout. They escape and try to make their way to the space bridge with the rust right on their trail.
    Managing to make it to the Space bridge, but realized that someone needs to stay behind to shut it off so the rust won't spread to Cybertron, that is if the Space Bridge is left open. Blur volunteers because it's revealed he has been infected when they were on the way here and wants to stay with his planet. We see earlier while they were making there way to the space bridge, rust had made contact with Blur, while he was driving. Bumblebee and Hot Rod honor Blur with his bravery and make their way through the ground bridge as Blur rusts away and crumbles to dust.
    Subplot: While Bumblebee is in his memories Windblade discovers the Decepticons have tracked them here and must escape from Slipstream and her Seekers. Manage to lose them by flying into Space. For some reason Slipstreams jet pulsars stall out. Must not be able to travel in space in Jet Mode.

    Well I’m disappointed we didn’t see any Velocitron natives like Override, Ransack, Crumplezone, etc, and only saw Blurr and genetics instead.

    But, given what happens to Velocitron with the rust, maybe it’s better we didn’t see them?

    Blurr dying is surprising given his being one of the first 9 Autobots we knew would be in the show, but it also doesn’t mean much since he wasn’t around long enough to make me care about him.

    The Wheeljack recolor threw me for a loop at first; wasn’t expecting that body to be used for other characters lol, especially not a random one-off dude

    The credits tell us the two new Seekers who attacked the ship are indeed Thrust and Acid Storm if anyone was curious.

    Acid Storm - Jamie Lamchick
    Blurr - JC Ernst
    Hot Rod - Travis Artz
    Thrust - Tomas Virgadula

    Something else to note, Thurst is not a conehead but has a regular Seeker body. Interesting decision since Dirge and Ramjet from episode 7 are coneheads.

    Do you mind double-checking if it’s Jamie or Jaime?
