The episode starts with wasp yet again being chased. Wasp is captured by Blackarachnia and the Dinobots. Blackarachnia convinces Wasp that she is his friend. She tells him she understands his story because they were both betrayed by the Autobots. She convinces Wasp to enter a trans warp device. She then retrieves an insect she has stored (which looks more like a bumble bee than a wasp).

Sentinel Prime receives a warning from Optimus not to proceed to Dinobot Island. Optimus suspects Blackarachnia's involvement and hasn't told Sentinel about the fate of Elita-1. Sentinel ignored the order. He orders Jetfire and Jetstorm to create a diversion to distract the Dinobots who are guarding the door. They disable Snarl and lead Grimlock and Swoop away. Sentinel heads into the base. Sentinel confronts Blackarachnia and learns her former identity. He is disgusted and attacks her. Wasp emerges from the chamber as a large wasp. He transforms into robot mode and anounces that he is now Waspinator.

Bumblebee and Optimus arrive on the scene. Bumblebee confronts Waspinator and apologizes for falsely accusing him. Waspinator's voice temporarily changes back to Wasp's and he says he forgives "Bumblebot". Then it changes back to Waspinator's and he screams that Waspinator never will forgive him. Waspinator then discovers Blackarachnia only created him so she could experiment on how to change him back (which could destroy him). Waspinator's trans warp signature then becomes unstable and they all flee the lab back onto the island. Waspinator attacks Blackarachnia. Optimus intervenes and say he will not leave her behind again. Blackarachnia then says no, but she will and forms a cocoon around her and Waspinator. Waspinator explodes destroying most of dinobot island.

Blackarachnia and Waspinator are actually transported to another planet. Waspinator is in pieces but still functional. Blackarachnia is unharmed, but realizes when she is confronted by animals that it is another organic planet.

Other notes

Transformers references

  • Though never mentioned in the show itself the episode's title is reference to the Predacons from the Beast Wars.
  • At the end of the episode Blackarachnia is face to face with a Rhino, Gorilla, Rat, and a Cheetah. These animals are the alt modes of the original Maximals from Beast Wars.
  • Wasp, now Waspinator, says at the end of the episode that, "Waspinator has Plans". This was a line used by Waspinator in the Beast wars cartoon.
  • Like in Beast Wars, Waspinator can survive being blown to pieces, though sadly even in Transformers Animated no one bothers to salvage him when he gets blown up, looks like some things never change.
  • While flying to Dinobot Island Sentinel orders Jetfire and Jetstorm to go to "Maximum Burn". This was a phrase used throughout the Beast wars cartoon.
  • Sentinel Prime and Megatron from Beast Machines seem to share the same hatred towards Technorganics, imagine that.
