Synopsis:
Ratchet journeys to the Savage Land in search of the Dinobots. Megatron, meanwhile, readies the head of Optimus Prime for travel to the Blackrock Aerospace Plant, where Shockwave plans to use the Creation Matrix within Prime to begin the creation of a host of new Decepticons.

Ratchet uncovers Slag from the tar, and taps into his memory banks to discover how the Dinobots beat Shockwave the first time, and sends this memory transmission back to Megatron, tricking him into believing the Dinobots have beaten Shockwave once again.

Pleased that Ratchet has fulfilled his part of the bargain, Megatron meets him at the designated spot. When he prepares to betray Ratchet, Ratchet reveals the ace up his sleeve: the Dinobots have been waiting, and all of them attack Megatron.

The Decepticon leader beats them off, but Ratchet charges Megatron. Crashing into the Decepticon sets off an avalanch that buries Megatron under a mountain of snow and rocks.

And far away, in a hospital, Josie Beller recovers and begins the process of turning herself into a robot-killing vigilante...
