Episode 19: Vacation
Alexis arrives at the Autobot base to find the Autobots about to warp
out. They're taking a vacation, and the kids are going with them.
Alexis had never heard about this, and though Rad and Carlos insist
they forgot to tell her, she thinks they purposely didn't invite her,
so she stays behind.
On the moon, Megatron announces it is time for Decepticon training to
begin, which seemingly consists of no more tan Megatron attacking his
troops with the Star Saber. Sideways tries to sit this exercise out,
deeming it a waste of his time, but Megatron doesn't take this lightly
and chases after him.
The kids are having a good time playing in the river with Red Alert and
Smokescreen, but a huge storm soon moves in, forcing them to pack up
and get ready to go. A little kid named Shawn they played with earlier
starts waving to them from the other side of the river, and Carlos
drives over to him through the river in Red Alert. Unfortunately, a
mudslide comes over the hill and buries the three of them.
Smokescreen starts digging for them, but it's not enough. To make
matters worse, a weather reporter is on the scene with a cameraman, so
the Autobots are risking exposure. Optimus, Hot Shot, and Scavenger
warp to the river to help the rescue operation. The kids and Shawn's
dad climb inside Hot Shot to evacuate and Laserbeak takes out the
reporter's camera so they can get the job done without being seen. When
the flood gates of the local dam are opened, Prime tries to hold off
the flow of the river with Scavenger's help. Smokescreen digs out Red
Alert just in time, and they all escape the overflowing river via Red
Alert's tow cable.
When they arrive back at the base, Alexis apologizes for being angry
earlier, but proceeds to chase Carlos when he says something stupid.
Back on the moon, Megatron is still chasing Sideways, who hides in a
crater right in front of Megatron. Amazingly, Megatron doesn't find him.
Name Mistakes: Alexis addresses Sureshock as Grindor.
