Scourge heads to Shockwave's base to recover Cyclonus' body, and finds the Decepticon rambling incoherently. Shockwave then shoots Scourge when he tries to take the body. Meanwhile, Galvatron and Megatron catch up with the Cybertronians, and another rout begins. Elsewhere, Rodimus mobilises the Autobot/Decepticon coalition, watched from limbo by Optimus, unable to return for fear of accelerating the time rift. Back at the battle, Roadbuster is able to injure Galvatron with the experimental Decepticon Pathblaster weapon, only to be destroyed by the feedback.
