Episode Summary

The issue starts with a one-page flash back to issue one and then picks up the pace with Virulina and Cindarr taking the head of Kup back to Merklynn. Much to Leoric's surprise, and disgust, Merklynn has also destroyed a couple of Transformers and is happy to see that Virulina "took his hint".

Whilst Virulina and the Darkling Lords stir up a crowd of Prysmosians, Leoric meets with the other Spectral Knights (Arzon, Witterquick, Ectar and Galadria) to discuss what is going on and how they can, and must, stop the Darkling Lords for their species to survive (as they fear diar retribution from the Transformers).

The Spectral Knights attack the Darkling Lords with a mixture of success. Witterquick uses his super-speed to get the best of Cravex, whilst Galadria takes on Cindarr (both transform into Animal form). Ectar gets the best of Lexor until the crowd starts hurling food and attacking the Spectral Knights.

All the while Leoric is bested by Virulina as they pair fight in animal form. As Leoric goes to attack Merklynn he is quickly disposed of.

At the end of the issue we see Ironhide arrive back at Wheeljack's lab ready to put the hurt on all the Prysmosians to rid eradicate them from Cybertron. Whilst Wheeljack explains that the Cybertroians are at risk of being turned to dust due to the Visionaries magic the Spectral Knights turn up to offer forming an alliance with the Autobots to defeat the Darkling Lords.
