Why? She had a good episode already. Welcome back, we return to ask the ever so important question. How Evil is Transformers: Robots in Disguise Episode 9?
This episode is Strongarm’s solo mission. At least it would be if Bumblebee wasn’t busy tailing her throughout the entire episode. Anyway, the pair run into Springload, a poison frog-like Decepticon who’s body is coated in acid. They quickly learn that Springload is… He’s just out of his mind, okay? While Strongarm and Bumblebee try to fight him, he ends up being more than a match for them. After Springload escapes, Bumblebee calls for reinforcements. But Strongarm cancels his order by giving the rest of the team the all clear.
Back at the base, Fixit and Rusty’s dad have had it with each other… Why? Because Fixit is mad the human is trying to help fix Cybertronian technology and Rusty’s dad is mad Fixit won’t let him help. They both devolved into toddlers. What does the base team do to stop them? Absolutely nothing. They pretty much just sit down and watch the hilarity. Until things start to get out of hand. Fixit rigs the TV into the ship’s computer system, forcing it to only show the prison catalog. Rusty’s Dad threatens to destroy the main console which prompts Rusty to “Sabotage” a weapon forcing the fighting duo to work together. This puts a stop to the fighting at the base.
Out in the field, Springload has fled to some ancient ruins, looking for the Cybertronian version of the Fountain of Youth. Bumblebee and Strongarm sneak up on their demented foe, and trap him in an open stone coffin. How does that work? Autobots are made from a living metal and his acid ate through it in seconds. How does stone stop that?
This episode is a mess. Strongarm did a reversal and went back to the whole ‘By the Book’ thing. Why? That last solo episode was good. Bumblebee wouldn’t give her space to do a solo mission. Fixit and Rusty’s dad have never fought before, so where did that come from? Overall, I would say this episode is about as evil as a Pity Criminal. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
