FOREVER IS A LONG TIME COMING After the excellent Dark Awakening, we have a relatively less exciting one: It’s another one of those failed Quintesson experiments to wipe out our heroes, lead by the same Quint scientist from Killing Jar?? What a poor track record so far from him. Favorite tidbits: Lots of action in this one. And a lot of Superion! It’s nice to see some of the Aerialbots get some talking role again, if only just a few lines here and there. Especially Silverbolt and I would’ve liked to have seen more dynamic between Rodimus and him, considering that as seen in the few episodes earlier (and also later on) the Aerialbots are kind of an integral part of Rodimus’ military force it seems. This episode is one of those time travel time again! This time, we got some very nice insights from very early in the Autobots history. Probably the oldest time period the series ever showcased. Rewind was pretty awesome in this. It’s the only episode where he said anything and its a shame because being an archivist opens up a whole lot of story possibility. Oh yeah, Ramhorn talks for some reason. And he’s aggressive! The not-so-good: The premise of the plot was simple, and then it branched into two subplots. There’s a lot of things going on but ultimately I feel one of the subplot (i.e. the team that was stuck in past) does not amount to any impactful consequence. Which is a shame because they could’ve done so much more. Coming from that, A3 doesn’t really do a whole lot in this episode. Would’ve like some more interaction from him with the other characters. Conclusion: As you may tell, it doesn’t have as much good stuff as “Dark Awakening”. Some missed opportunities. The setup is there but they didn’t capitalize on it and as a result, the climax does not feel satisfying enough. 7/10 stuff, overall.
