Synopsis:
Furious with Optimus Prime for not empowering Jetfire with the energy of the creation matrix, Shockwave deduces that Prime must no longer possess it within his programming. Scanning Rumble's memory, he discovers that Buster snuck past the sentries and entered the Ark. Shockwave concludes that Prime must have transferred the matrix into Buster, and sends Laserbeak to capture him.

Thanks to the bugged phones Blackrock installed in his facility, the Autobots have also learned the same information. Prowl sends Bluestreak and Bumblebee to find Buster. They succeed, but also lead Laserbeak right to him.

With the information provided by Laserbeak, Shockwave programs the non-sentient Jetfire to attack all Autobots at the designated coordinates and retrieve Buster.

Jetfire cleans house with the two Autobots only to have Buster disassemble the enormous jet with a thought. With some help from Bumblebee, Buster re-assembles Jetfire to help them mount a rescue attempt for Optimus Prime...

...which will have to be very swift, as Prowl overhears Shockwave informing the Autobot leader that his usefulness is at an end...
