Let me help you
Jetfire tells Prime that he wants to join the Autobots but they want the truth — Jetfire doesn’t want Megatron to wipe out an entire population: “He’s fallen into darkness”.
Prime soldiers on with plans
Elita tells Prime to wait for the Allspark to resurface in a safer region as at the moment it is in the Sea of Rust. But Prime wants the Ark, Allspark, and the Spacebridge to work in unison. Bumblebee states that a Decepticon has returned from the Sea of Rust before. Looks like Jetfire will be of some use. As for the Spacebridge, the Autobots have got it working but the Decepticons arrive again. Mirage puts a veil bubble over them so the Decepticons don’t see them.
The virus is deployed
As for the virus, well it has been deployed which is not good for the Autobots. Meanwhile, Jetfire offers his services and offers them an option where they can blow up his brain module if he betrays them. Bumblee and co go visit Soundblaster to make a deal with him for more Energon to help with the Ark’s engines.
The virus has infected
Jetfire, Prime and Hound head to the Sea of Rust. Suddenly, eight Autobot outposts have gone down because of the virus. They’ve been infected. Elita commands that they need to get the Ark ready immediately. While skirmishing through the Sea of Rust, Jetfire saves one of the Autobots — a moment of history in Cybertron, a Decepticon saving an Autobot, a moment that quickly moves on due to all the action.
