How does Transformers: War for Cybertron season 1 (Siege), episode 6 open?
Soundblaster does not want a deal with Bumblee for more Energon so they have to escape. As for Prime, he and his team are still fighting off the zombie bots (they are called the Sparkless — they look for Sparks to come back to life). The Allspark saves the Autobots and Prime now has the relic. Game on.
There’s still hope
As for Spacebridge, they are struggling to protect it as they have no comms from command due to communications being down. The Autobots return with Energon at the Ark — Elita declares there’s still hope. Meanwhile, Megatron states that they need to free Cybertron once and for all. It’s a rallying cry — one last-ditch attempt to stop Prime’s plans.
Losing the protocols
Elita tells Prime that they are ready and they plan to rendezvous at the Spacebridge. Meanwhile, Bumblebee has lost the Alpha Trion Protocols due to the virus. This was a shortlived and wasted storyline, unfortunately. Megatron comes to the theory that Prime is trying to take the Allspark off Cybertron using the Spacebridge. Elita is worried that Megatron knows so demands that they turn the engines on — Prime is warned.
Prime and Megatron
Prime is confronted by Megatron — Prime insists that their world is already destroyed and Megatron’s thirst for power has ruined everything. Megatron believes that Prime taking Allspark off the world is worse than what he’s capable of. They are like two siblings, constantly disagreeing with each other.
Finish the war
The battle begins. The Ark is turned on by Elita and it is ready; however, the Spacebridge hasn’t been activated yet as the Autobots are struggling. Prime heads towards the bridge and asks Ratchet to activate it. It is activated and now ready. Megatron asks his Decepticons to finish the war — Megatron and Prime fight.
How does Transformers: War for Cybertron season 1 (Siege), episode 6 end?
Prime is knocked out and Megatron picks up the Allspark. Bumblebee shoots Megatron and he drops the Allspark and Prime throws the Allspark into the Spacebridge. Omega Supreme turns up from The Guardians and helps the Autobots.
The Autobots head to the Ark but Elita tells Prime she isn’t leaving as she wants to stay behind and protect Cybertron. Prime leaves her and the Ark heads into the Spacebridge. Elita believes the Ark didn’t make it and says they need to keep fighting the war. Jetfight tells Elita she won’t have to do it alone.
The episode ends with the Ark’s dashboard warning that an unknown vessel is approaching. Episode 6 is a teaser for what’s to come as we all now have to wait for chapters 2 & 3.
