Xaaron and the Wreckers are held by Flame, who plans to continue his attempts to carry out Megatron's plan, which had been denied by the Council of Elders. Xaaron pleads with him as the plan will endanger Cybertron itself, but Flame won't listen. Above ground, Magnus elects to send Flywheels for reinforcements. Meanwhile, Xaaron persuades Springer to escape, but Impactor follows. Springer manages to get through to him, and he sets off to find out what's going on, while Springer sets off to find Ultra Magnus.
