Rodimus is having problems with all the responsibilities that come with being a leader. He is attacked by decepticons who manage to take the matrix from him, transforming him back into Hot Rod. The Autobots want to go after the decepticons right away to get the matrix back. But Hot Rod isn't as anxious. Scourge tries to give the matrix to Galvatron, but it doesn't work for him, Scourge uses the matrix on himself, and becomes more powerful, and attacks Galvatron, and then goes on a rampage. Hot Rod witnesses a sensei training a student, and learns a valuable lesson, and realizes what he has to do. Written by Jesse Sanchez
