Optimus Prime is trying to get away from the Predacons, with little success. They form Predaking, and he seems to be in big trouble. Meanwhile, the Autobots aren't looking, as Wheeljack is unaware that this isn't part of Prime's plan. Optimus makes it back to his trailer, but is seemingly gunned down by Megatron. He orders the Predacons to finish Optimus off. Later, Wheeljack and an Autobot search party stumble over Prime's destroyed body.
