We're back! Ready to start season 2! Something nice and simple to ease the viewers into things should be nice, right? Spike, why won't you stop crying???

In this episode, Sparkplug has a little extra evil leftover in him from being brainwashed and the writers REALLY want you to know where their inspiration came from. Hey Optimus? You wanna maybe keep a better eye on your spiraling friend whose whole brain went bad?

Joe Buster Bluths a lot and Kristen didn't expect legit body horror from a cartoon for children.
