Summary

Episode 6 is a predictable piece of work — an ending that gets a little tiresome. But the writers are trying to reach a timeline that audiences will be excited about.

This recap of Netflix anime series Transformers: War for Cybertron: Earthrise episode 6 — the ending explained — contains spoilers. The series is part of a trilogy. There will be three chapters.

Check out the season review.

Check out the review of Part 1 – Siege.


The opening

Episode 6 opens up with Prime’s squad wondering where he is. They cannot get to the Allspark. Prime tells Bumblebee that the Matrix remains close; Bumblebee reminds him that Megatron will never change. Suddenly, Megatron’s ship uses their tractor beam on Prime’s ship — they have to brace for impact. A dramatic start, as expected.

Another chance to kill Megatron

Prime’s Autobots ambush Megatron’s Decepticons. Prime then fights Megatron, and they do their usual talking. Prime c***s a gun at Megatron’s head. Megatron laughs, believing that Prime will not kill him as it’s not in his blood. Prime tells him that the cycle ends here. He wants forgiveness first. Cog walks in and asks what Prime is doing, which distracts the situation, and Megatron gets out of a deadly situation. This routine fighting and talking between Prime and Megatron is predictable at this stage. Prime stands for his morals — he isn’t prepared to kill.

Danger for Elita

Back on Cybertron, Elita notices that the prisons are empty — they are wondering why. Sensing danger, she comes face to face with Shockwave.

Elita is struggling against Shockwave due to his stealth. Shockwave tells him to call off the Guardians. Elita breaks his stealth mode but recognises his strength — she realises he is draining Decepticon sparks and making himself stronger.

The fighting continues

Megatron and Prime continuing arguing about Allspark and their differences in morality, while fighting as per. Meanwhile, Bumblebee is doing everything he can to power up defences and weapons. He’s relying on Wheeljack’s efforts.

Prime once again has Megatron in a position where he can kill him, but again his morality gets the better of him. Megatron begs for mercy but then electrocutes Prime. Megatron opens Prime up. Why does Prime keep falling for Megatron’s deception? The writing is too predictable.

Deseeus preps for revenge

Doubledealer continues to threaten Bumblebee and the crew. He calls it payback — suddenly, he’s revealed as Deseeus who wants revenge for the loss of millennia, for his solitary exile and the honor of his fellow Quintessons. He’s using Doubledealer as his new face.

Get the engines running!

After losing a fight to Shockwave, Elita is now on a table, tied to it. Shockwave is distracted as he’s told a traitor is captured. Meanwhile, Ironhide reads a massive breach to the Fortune’s warp actuator. Bumblebee asks the team to get the engines running while he looks for Prime. An injured Cog sends out a message; he’s taken control of the mercenary ship and asks for a ceasefire.

A close call for Prime

Elita tries to escape the table she’s tied on while her squad manages to escape imprisonment and a huge explosion follows — the outcome of this will be seen in Part 3. As for Prime, he’s confused by what Megatron has done to him — Megatron tells him to relax and calls him “Orion”. Prime asks Megatron why he wants the Matrix of Leadership. Megatron believes he has the fate of the Universe at the right place and time and states this is how it ends. Megatron loads his weapon, declaring that he does not crave forgiveness, but then Bumblebee pops up behind him and shoots Megatron to save the day.

The ending

Bumblebee tells Prime that Megatron has the Matrix; Prime states he will soon have Allspark if they do not stop him. Bumblebee doesn’t believe they are going to make it without engines, and an explosion is imminent.

Prime asks Wheeljack to put the Nemesis between them and the Fortune using whatever thrusters they have. Prime then asks them to divert all power to the shields. Suddenly, there’s a heavy explosion in space and remnants land on Earth. It’s during the age of the dinosaurs, which gets the audience ready for Part 3.

Transformers: War for Cybertron: Earthrise episode 6 is a predictable piece of work — an ending that gets a little tiresome. But the writers are trying to reach a timeline that audiences will be excited about.
