If a sword cutting a GODDAMN MOUNTAIN IN HALF and MEGATRON HIMSELF PRACTICALLY SHITTING HIS PANTS does nothing to impress you, then i don't know what will. I will agree that it has had some misfires with its epicness, the Armada episode being one. But you're just holding on to the fact that you're trying to make this show bad and you don't grasp the implications! Prime has an ultra-powerful sword powered by an eldritch force than can make swiss cheese out of the topography. Now think about what that means for the Decepticons! If Optimus is in a particularly ruthless mood, all he has to do is run outside, find the Decepticon warship, limber up a bit and take a swing and BOOM. War is won. They're not just going for "ooh look flashy sword thingie can slice rocks!" And, to go further into the preview for next time, Megatron is so desperate to even the playing field that he is willing to CUT OFF HIS OWN ARM IN ORDER TO STITCH ON THE ARM OF A DEAD PRIME!!! He has no idea if that would even work, too!!! Logically it shouldn't, but again that speaks to how desperate he is! This episode has officially brought the epicness to season 2 i think.
