Meanwhile, Ultra Magnus and Kup confront Optimus Prime about Soundwave's actions, and Prime tells them not to worry, that all of this will pass over once Megatron's 'second coming' comes and goes without his reappearance. In between, we're given the entire series run as flashbacks (from Marvel Comics), as Soundwave begins his plan, starting with the destruction of the Last Autobot. To be continued...
