We are excited to share with you some exclusive images of the upcoming episode of Transformers Prime, which airs on The Hub TV Network.
The upcoming October 1 episode is the first of a three-part season finale, and the plot summary is:
One Shall Rise - Part 1: When Earth becomes plagued by natural disasters, the Autobots come to the horrible realization that Dark Energon is the source of the bizarre events.
Dark Energon is essentially a corrupted version of energon, which is the fuel that the Transformers use. It is extremely powerful and can make them faster and stronger when ingested, but it is also highly addictive. (Hear that, kids? Don't eat Dark Energon).
The first image we have for you is called Megatron Volcano, and with the bit about natural disasters mentioned in the plot summary, I think I can safely assume that a volcano is erupting behind Megatron, the leader of the Decepticons. (That, or it's an impressive fireworks display, which would also be really cool). Megatron is voiced by Frank Welker, one of the greatest voice actors to ever speak in a cartoon.
The next image is simply a menacing closeup, but if the purple eyes are any indication, then Megatron is utilizing Dark Energon. Unfortunately the art only gives up the briefest of glimpses into the new episode, so be sure to tune in to find out what happens.
Transformers Prime airs this Saturday at 8:30 pm ET, 5:30 pm PT.
