Well, after that last travesty of an episode, how much more can they possible screw up? Let’s get this over with. How Evil Is Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2015) Episode 14?
The episode starts off with an illegal street race getting interrupted by a crab-like Decepticon, before it vanishes into the sewers. Huh. Not the opening we usually get, which was pretty refreshing. At the Autobot base, the team is, well, doing nothing. The Cons haven’t attacked for a while so there is nothing to do currently. Bumblebee, in particular, is going a little stir crazy and is very jumpy around loud noises. The alarm goes off alerting the bots to the Con, hiding in the sewers, so they head out to investigate.
Once they arrive, they decide to split up… I know what you’re thinking, this time they successfully corner the Con called Clampdown. After being cornered, Clampdown showers the Bots in sewage. Yeah. There it is. Oh, were you expecting them to catch him? Ha. That’s cute. Upon escaping the bots, Clampdown is “persuaded” to join Steeljaw’s crew… forced. He was forced.
At the Con base, Clampdown is greeted by most of the cons, except Thunderhoof. Thunderhoof reveals that Clampdown is the snitch that got him arrested, and he would very much like to trash him. Did I mention Thunderhoof was supposed to be a gangster? Because he’s supposed to be a gangster… a gangster who looks like a deer. Intimidated yet? Yeah. Me neither. But Clampdown is, apparently. He flees the Con base, followed by Thunderhoof. Strongarm sights Clampdown fleeing and reports back to Bumblebee.
The Bots catch Clampdown and start to question him when Steeljaw and his Cons arrive. Both sides square off, with the Bots coming out on top in the end. All the Cons get handcuffed and rounded up… into a single area. Bumblebee starts to pat himself on the back, but is interrupted when Steeljaw breaking free. The Bots chase Steeljaw, only to lose their other prisoners in the process of saving humans from a disaster set up by Steeljaw.
This episode was leagues better than the last one. We had our first real battle between the two sides and team arguing on the bots’ side. There actually seemed to be a bit of progression with this one. I’d say this episode is about as evil as a Politician. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
