Graduation Ceremony!! is the thirty-fifth and last episode of Beast Wars Neo. It first aired in Japan on September 29, 1999 on TV Tokyo.
With Unicron's ego growing unmaginably self-important, Big Convoy decides that the only way to defeat him is with a gun—a big enough gun can solve any problem! He attaches the Energon Matrix in his chest to the gun he carries and shoots Unicron, killing him to death.
The Maximals celebrate by eating lunchboxes beneath the cherry blossoms while Navi-chan and Navi circle one another in what one can only assume is a mating ritual. Suddenly, Magmatron teleports back from the afterlife! He attacks the Maximals, only to be interrupted when an innocent child's wish brings Vector Sigma back to life, and she announces that with the old boss dead, Lio Convoy is the new boss, and they must all rebuild Cybertron. So all the Maximals and Predacons—including the ones who were never here—join forces to rebuild the robot houses Unicron knocked down.

And the the Seacons were killed by the Cyber-beasts. How they returned to Cybertron is anybody's guess.
