Starscream gives an opening speech of: "I have been a fool made mistakes, monumental ones. I now realize I was never destined to a leader or even an equal partner, and I am at peace with that. I have gained a clear understanding of my place in this universe of who I am of who I was always meant to be: Starscream second in command, humble servant to Lord Megatron. Thank you for listening, Soundwave." Starscream then walks away into a room with Megatron and Airachnid having a conversation about the Harbinger. Airachnid claimed it possesses valuable weaponry and Megatron orders Starscream to bring her to the ship because he told he memorized the coordinates to avoid the consequences for not recording them.
Starscream and Airachnid arrive at the site of the crash site. Starscream refuses to tell Airachnid the information for where the Harbinger's weaponry is until she traps him in her webbing & threatens to kill him if he doesn't. Airachnid decides to abandon him there, but she doesn't notice that Arcee, Optimus, Bumblebee, & Bulkhead have ground bridged into the exact location. Arcee chases after Airachnid and the two climb into the ground, then battle before Optimus tries shooting at Airachnid. Optimus claims that Arcee must consider on attacking alone before doing so, then Bulkhead & Bumblebee bring in Starscream. Starscream then claims that he wants to be on their side in order to get even with the other Decepticons.
Optimus Prime decides to accept Starscream's request, then the Autobots drive to a canyon where Airachnid has obtained the Immobilizer. Arcee is ordered to look after Starscream who is in cuffs on his wings and arms. Optimus, Bumblebee, & Bulkhead engage in battle with Airachnid who is trying to strike them with the Immobilizer.
Arcee is waiting while Starscream complains about the cuffs. They both agree that they despise Airachnid for her sadistic, brutal bullying. Arcee then added she terminated her partner (referring to Tailgate), then Starscream believes Airachnid is getting credit for that, and said it was his doing, as indirectly referring to Cliffjumper. Arcee then gets curious, realizing that Starscream admits to killing 1 of her partners, Tailgate or Cliffjumper. Starscream claimed he doesn't know who Tailgate is, so Arcee realizes that Cliffjumper was the one he killed.
Arcee at first decides to kill Starscream, but then he begs for mercy. Arcee gives him the key to his cuffs on the ground, but Starscream fakes that he refuses to, then when Arcee reaches to reclaim the key, Starscream claws her hip, making her spill Energon, then Starscream takes the key to unlock his cuffs, then enters battle with Arcee.
Optimus & Bulkhead are immobilized, and Bumblebee is the only remaining Autobot. While shooting at rocks falling off, Airachnid immobilizes where he is, with Bumblebee in a position of trying to run off but doesn't move. While Airachnid is bragging about herself, Bumblebee sneaks up behind her revealing he did not get immobilized, then punches her face and breaks the Immobilizer. Airachnid retreats in helicopter mode escaping Bumblebee. In the outcome of the battle, Arcee wins the battle and is about to kill him, but Bumblebee's sympathetic look influences Arcee to spare him.
Ratchet repairs the Immobilizer and frees Bulkhead & Optimus from their immobilized state, while Megatron believes Starscream is imprisoned by the Autobots, angered at Airachnid for her blunder. Starscream has freed himself from the cuffs on his wings, then flies off claiming he is no servant to anyone.
- Bulkhead mentions The Fallen.
- The Immobilizer is like the G1 version except when they get immobilized, the 'bots don't turn into a grey color, they keep whatever color they are.
