    Gee. I wonder who this episode is about?

    NOTE: Closed until air time ... why? Because various schedules say "Blast from the Past" and others say "Along Came a Spider" ... so stay tuned.

    SPOILS!: Sentinel is a douche, but atleast he's somewhat dependable. It's cool to see how E-1, OP and SP were all friends.

    Sari, BB and Bulkhead, FTW.


    Nice use of G1 Energon cubes!


    EDIT: HOLY CRAP! So that's how it all happened! For those who thought Optimus didn't get enough character, here ya go.

    BA is just the same as she was in BW. Using here body to her advantage.:lol  Bulkhead's such a nob.

    But I feel so sad for BA. Don't cry Blackarachnia. :cry 



    EDIT2: That ep was a little on the heavy side. A lot like TOTH, only... sadder.:(

    Too bad the energon cubes didn't create a stronger explosion. It was cool to see Elita, nice deviation from the G1 and it was better that way with how they made her Blackarachnia. Prime needs to explain his action of leaving BA back there alone. Sentinel probably reported this and got him booted somehow but I don't see how it plays into "being a hero" etc.

    Pretty good ep imo not as great as Thrill of the Hunt but it was nice to see a 'Con back in the mix and how the organics mask her energy signature.

    Btw creepy with Sari aging instantly like that with the key o__O

    Hell yea, I hope they reach possibly 4 seasons and perhaps explore the future of the Animated Universe. So much potential with a new continuity.

    Though there wasn't much action with the present story in this episode, the flashbacks to the past were cool. I was hoping they'd tell how BA aligned herself with the 'Cons and what that ship was doing there.

    Well, that was fun and unexpected! I mean, maybe it shouldn't have been entirely unexpected, but it still caught me off guard. Man, I love this show.

    Did anyone else see an empty 'Con helmet that looked like BA's head/helmet in the ship before Elita-1 got transformed?

    I did. Maybe she has some sort of dis-figured face or some fucked-up spider head that she hides behind the helmet.

    I feel sorry for Elita... or BA, or whoever she wants to be called.:( 



    Energon-y goodness?:lolol

    I thought this was coming on NEXT WEEK?!!! Damn good thing I watch Animated by default.

    BA is DANGEROUS!!!!
    She's like Rogue from X-Men...She can copy TF's powers and abilities...She's got a hint of goodness, but she has trust issues toward Autobots.

    Speaking of X-Men, anyone catch the "fastball special" bu Bulkhead and Bumblebee?

    Man, if people are hating on Animated, it's because they haven't watched it. Especially this episode and TOTH. Elita-One, Energon cubes...

    We know why Optimus was demoted...it was an honest mistake.


    How can the Autobots beat ALL of the Deceps if they decide to team up...

    This was such a good episode. I am so pleased with how they are building this continuity. There was so much characterization in this episode.

    It comes back on at 11am tomorrow morning.

    Cartoon Network loves to mess around with the schedule.

    That was a good episode. Optimus shouldn't have left her behind though.

    I think he did the right thing in that situation. If he had gone back, they probably would have all died anyway.


    Now we know why Sentinel hates Prime so much.

    If you wait about an hour, FanofTransformers on youtube should have it up.
