Buster flies back to the plant in Jetfire aiming to act as a captive and aid the Autobots, when they encounter USAF jets. Jetfire is able to evade and destroy them, but Buster blacks out in the chase, and Jetfire reverts to his pre-programed flight plan. At the plant, Shockwave leaves Rumble to guard the workers, and reveals to Prime he knew of the phoneline bug, and has set the Autobots up. Jetfire then arrives, and gives Shockwave Buster. Jetfire is then sent to drop Prime's head in a Swamp near the Autobots, who put it back on his body. Prime then attacks the Autobots, and the Decepticons arrive.
