    Steeljaw and Quillfire tortured him real good and Bee got like one good shot in. Lots of great shit talk too. Their arch-nemesis-ship is getting really good.

    I just watched all of the parts of the episode. It was nice seeing Fixit using his wits to outsmart the deceptions, and seeing Steeljaw as a worthy adversary to the Bee team.

    At first I thought SS and Strongarm reletionship was gonna be reset again. But I was wrong. They were actually getting better and acknowledged it. It's just they're childish and SS is just a sassy drama queen that happens to annoys Strongarm all the time.

    SideArm ftw.

    Bee is badass.

    Fixit is smart.

    Grimlock is cute.

    9.7/10

    This episode was fun! A little filler-y, but has its charms for sure. It was really entertaining seeing Sideswipe and particularly Strongarm act so childish to each other, even if it has been played out for the entire series. Steeljaw's very cruel desire for revenge against Bumblebee is growing very apparent, to the interesting point we see even Clampdown and Quillfire recoil a bit from it. Not saying the other cons will stop him from hurting the Autobots or anything, but the idea of the rest of the team becoming extremely frightened of their self-appointed leader is becoming more plausible.

    Side note: glad we got a little bit more information regarding Quillfire's quills. I guess Scatterspike's remark on not knowing what they do or how long they last applies to him too. Also interesting to know that it's painful to forcibly remove his quills from him, thanks to Steeljaw. I am glad they brought Quill back, he's been really fun to watch.

    Ultimately excited to see what's in store for the future of this series!

    Sounds like the episode just twiddled its thumbs the whole time with another tease about Cybertron.

    In a way, yeah.

    What do you want though? A season that lasts 10 episodes with no build up, character moments, fun, or down time.

    Just 110% full force forward plot who even cares what any of these Bots' motivations and relationships with each other are.

    Robots in Disguise is about it's characters. They come before the plot, which has been slowly but surely spinning into something solid.

    This episode is one of the best of the series because it continues to push forward the PLOT around SS and Strongarm's dynamic and the deep piercing hatred that continues to fester between Steeljaw and Bumblebee.

    Plus it shows the Autobots are in a "time of crisis" with no suitable base and getting really irritated in close quarters. Strongarm and Sideswipe say some horrible things to each other and Fixit is going even glichier. Quite the contrast with their awhs and ohs teamwork they've continued to grow this season. Because shits seriously bad for them.

    Yeah but bro, Prime Characters will most definitely return in the final arc and this show (which has been excellent as its own thing) must become Prime.

    Jk of course.

    This was a good episode. I love Strongarm and Sideswipe's bickering. I liked the callback to Tunnel Vision where Bee learned about the third rail.

    Finally got around to write about this good episode.

    Did anyone realize when Sideswipe told Strongarm that "she's pushy" Strongarm got defensive and said "I show you pushy"?

    It almost looked like that Sideswipe is intimidated by Strongarm.

    Loved this episode. Its fun to see how the destruction of the base effects all involved. Steeljaw's Pack have a much simpler goal than in the past two seasons; destroy the Bee Team, and yet for some reason that's still as enjoyable as their previous goals.

    9.5 out of 10. We're going to a nuclear waste plant next episode. Might we see a Steeljaw's Pack Combiner

    I wonder if Grimlock will die instead of Drift during the finale of "Transformers Robots In Disguise - Combiner Force"....

    Neither. No major deaths are likely but especially not those with no build-up or foreshadowing.

    Yeah it was totally filler.Just SS and SA conflict.And quills.Yes,Steeljaw has become a madman.And Strongarm is actually going to help a prisoner in E20.Yeah,the quills were interesting.

    Pretty much.

    Yeah...and oh...Ultrajaw...how cool...well,Steeljaw is supposed to be Greenjaw soon.

    Nobody will die.Confirmed by the showrunner.

    1)Yeah filler.
    2)Yeah that was a nice addition to the episode.
