Starscream, using his new Quintesson powers gained from his encounter with them, incapacitates the Transformers, thwarting any escape plans they set in motion. While he judges some Transformers, Optimus, Bumblebee and an injured Wheeljack escape into the multiverse. Meanwhile, Windblade heads to Maccadam's, fights off the Quintesson Sharkticons and fully awakens Iaconus with assistance from Maccadam. In response, Starscream summons a brainwashed Croaton to attack Iaconus.
When Bumblebee can't remember what his current mission on Earth is, Windblade repairs his memory chips, enabling him to rediscover his past adventures on Cybertron. When his memories are being repaired, Bumblebee gets a clue that will lead both him and Windblade to complete their mission and save their friends, unaware that Megatron sent his Decepticon assassins to hunt them down.
