The Wreckers and Mayhems are decimated by Galvatron and Megatron, and Springer and Carnivac are kept out of the battle by Scourge and Ravage. Springer tells Scourge of the time rift, distracting him. Meanwhile, the assembled Autobots and Decepticons listen to Optimus Prime, and begin to assemble a strategy. Back in the base, Springer takes out Scourge and orders a retreat, reluctantly followed by Carnivac. However, the time rift has now arrived on Earth.
