    Absolutely loved the episode! I had a feeling about Ratchet's TF:A bio when info first leaked about the characters and show, and I'm so glad to see him become even more dimensional than I anticipated. The cameo in this episode was unexpected but A MILLION TIMES welcomed! I don't think I could have been happier seeing that character, let alone be so heartbroken at the same time.

    I genuinely love all the characters so far (yes, even the Sumdacs - they're not as bad as people think they are), and Ratchet, well, he's at the top of the list now as far as I'm concerned :)

    Not to shamby episode, Lance (I know the last name, but its hard to spell it) is badass as the voice for Lockdown and its cool to hear some familiar voices like Susan Blu as Arcee. Awesome.

    Best episode yet imo, so far from the way the episodes have started. I think its on a rise with Total Meltdown being my least favourite so far.

    Man, This show is constantly getting better and better. The animation rocks! The Stories are Great. Ratchet Rules! And..... Arcee, Woo Hoo. I hope this means we'll get a decent Arcee toy based on her G1 style. Over-All, I'm completely Diggin' this new series. I can't get enough. Bring on more. More, More, More, More.

    Oh man the episode was awesome.
    Now I can say that Ratchet is my favorite Autobot and I HATED Lockdown... but that's good because he's a villain. So freaking evil!

    Arcee's voice was just as it was in g1, its amazing that after so long that an old voice can sound exactly the same.

    VP's death ep wasn't nearly as good as this. Sure it was great in concept, but in execution there were too many annoying parts. (kids, animation, plot, Vector Prime...)

    This is easily twice as good as VP's death episode. Especially since nobody actually had to die to have such an emotional impact. (Arcee losing her memory permanently was an amazing climax. And ratchet's guilt for doing so gave him so much character)

    I really loved this episode. I hope they bring bring back Arcee and/or we get a toy for her. I'm glad we got some characted develpoment for Ratchet. We havn't gotten character development like this since Beast Wars. I just love this show.

    Did anyone else notice the billbord Prime used as a sheild in the first scene was advertising the "All New Squid Burger"?

    Lockdown is a cool character and finally seeing Ratchet's story was nice. And yes Bumblebee's horn kicks ass.

    Nah, it's not nearly as good as the G1 episode where Seaspray gets transformed by a magical pool into He-Man with a stupid voice. Priiiiiceless! XD

    I like everything about Blitzwing except the spinning faces. Split personality is nice and refreshing, just not the spinning faces. Reminds me too much of Quintessons, not a good thing.
