Good episode. A little more serious than previous ones though acceptable as we near the end and as the stakes were higher this time around. Still funny though especially Sideswipe saying "I hate Everybody" and the interactions between Bulkhead and Grimlock. I knew the two would've had great chemistry but it was so fun to see them together. Bulkhead was himself from Prime but what made him feel better was that, he didn't just feel like he was there so Prime fanboys could stop crying. He did stuff unlike Ratchet (who waa just there), didn't feel forced into the story unlike Soundwave (who felt more like using a Prime character to kiss @$$ to Prime fanboys and pad out the council plotline), and well... Starscream was handled pretty well too even if his arc has less impact on the overarching story than the Stunticons'. But yeah, Bulkhead was useful, not forced, looks awesome, has a nice v-mode, and will be part of the main story from what it seems. Him and Grimlock would make a great team and a great comedian duo. I wish we got some background on him though. We can assume he's been living life on Cybertron but we've been led to believe Team Prime is split up and has lost contact with each other. Ratchet confirmed this in Decepticon Island. So how would OP magically gain contact with Bulky if he can't even get to Cybertron. Maybe Ratchet and him bumped into each other and he told him about Optimus being alive (which Bulkhead doesn't seem the least bit excited about btw). Wingcode was kind of boring but had an interesting story. The mention of the Great War especially. The action was ok but since Wingcode barely appeared there was barely any. It made the episode feel more like padding for the finale, than the previous one. At least there, Steeljaw's Pack was a long time problem the Autobots needed to conclude. Here the writers knew Bulkhead would appear in the finale so they brought him in but since they have to make 26 episodes they made the plot with Wingcode to introduce Bulk to newer viewers and bring him in without having to rush things. The padding is not as fun as Season 1 because excuses for where new threats come from are getting old, unlike the Alchemor prisoners just running wild instead of, an excuse of why they remaind after it's departure. Even if the excuse makes sense, it still feels forced. This doesn't effect the overall quality of the episode. I get why they did it but at the same time, at least make the Con of the Week more interesting. I know they can make one-shots or recurring characters, great characters too. They've been doing it for the whole show. Now knowing about (and being extremely hyped for) Cyberverse and seeing how it will probably have an episodic structure too, let's hope whoever writes it can keep it interesting. We're gonna have Cons chasing after Bee this time so I hope they don't disappoint with that. A lot of interesting Decepticoncepts can come out of that. The part that got to me was how Denny and Russell do seem worried about their friends sometimes and yet don't at other times. While the stakes were high, sometimes the actors and writers forgot to make them feel as high as they should've been. Overall 7.5 out of 10. Which is sad for I was really looking forward to this one and wanted an episode as good as Collateral Damage, but the arrow missed the mark a little bit. Still a good episode, but not a great one. Proof Prime characters don't make a God-tier episode. Hopefully, meeting Dropforge and Steeljaw's probable defeat can get me in a better mood for the finale.
