What just happened? Is… is this show finally developing a story? So many questions, but only one that matters. Just How Evil Is Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Episode 6?
This episode is surprisingly better than the others. It starts off with some Sideswipe shenanigans, and pretty much stays that way. A group of humans comes into the junk yard, asking for random parts. Bumblebee recognizes the parts are for a spacebridge, and stops Rusty and his dad from selling a generator. This allows them to track down the only other one near a dam.
Bumblebee tells Grimlock and Sideswipe to guard the generator while he and Strongarm go on patrol. This plan would’ve worked if Sideswipe were serious about the job. He abandons his post, and Grimlock gets his can kicked. Bumblebee order’s Strongarm to take Grimlock home while he and Sideswipe search for the perp. They soon stumble upon the humans they encountered before completing the space bridge and scare them off disguised as spirits… I guess that could work.
The humans flee and the duo encounter Thunderhoof – A deer like Decepticon that turns into some sort of tractor. Oh. He talks like a mob boss. So there’s also that. A fight breaks out, and they actually win, sending the con into what they assume is a black hole. Before the credits role we see the bridge reopen in a wooded area, and another familiar face – the wolf-like con from before.
This entire episode is for Sideswipe to develop as a character, and for him to start taking his job a bit more seriously, which he did. I have doubts this will happen too often, but I kind of liked this episode. It’s still not as good as Prime, but at least it was better than last week’s. Overall I’d say this episode was about as evil as a Petty Criminal. Well, that’s all I have for you today.
Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
