[birds chirping]
[gentle music]
- I hope these help Bumblebee
feel better.
- Let's take a selfie and I'll
make it into a get well card.
Everyone say Bee on three.
Ready? One, two
- [growls]
- Three?
- Hey, Mr. Grimlock!
Uh, Mr. Grimlock?
- [roars]
[all scream]
- [caws]
- [screaming]
- Keep it in park, JB.
We got this.
- But I can help.
- Let the others handle it.
Their alt modes
are built for this.

[electricity crackling]
[power whirs]
- [sighs]
Enjoy your rest, old friend.
- Is he gonna be okay?
- He, uh, needs time to heal.
Maybe on the inside too.
[electricity warbling]
[electricity crackling]
[power whirs]
- [gasps] Amazing.
He made it all the way
to Witwicky
from Philadelphia in Dino mode.
- Get away from me!
[power whirs]
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
You're okay.
- It's Elita-1 and Bumblebee,
You are safe.
- Mm-hmm.
- Wherewhere am I?
- Just have a seat
and take a load off.
- [sighs] Yeah.
I think I need a vacation.
- Ghost will be thrilled
to hear
the King of the Dinobots
is back.
- Make that a long vacation.
- You can hang here
in the Med Bay with me.
We've both been through a lot,
- I'm fine.
I just
need to stretch my legs.
[soft dramatic music]
- I'm just saying it doesn't
feel good to get benched.
Like, I can't hang
when stuff gets real.
- We just didn't want you
to get hurt.
- Facts. Dinobots are no joke.
They're the biggest, baddest
warriors on Cybertron.
- [roars]
- Yeah, I really wish
I had some of that.
- Don't believe everything
you read, kid.
[chuckles] Listen.
Um, about last night.
And the incident
in Philadelphia.
I was, uh, not myself.
- But you were awesome!
And when you're with
the Autobots,
I bet they never make you
sit on the sidelines.
I wish I had mega-dino powers.
- Um
- Really?
Fierce isn't exactly
your style, JB.
- It could be.
- Jawbreaker,
you're likeensaymada.
Sweet. And that's okay.

- Hey, Grim?
You wanna come rest up and, uh,
maybe talk about what happened?
- I'm fine. See?
And I'm-I'm busy getting
to know the young ones.
- You know, if you're not up
for an Autobot mission,
then maybe
the King of the Dinobots
wouldn't mind training
a Terran or two?
- I don't know about that

- I'm fine.
And spending time with a young
protoform sounds delightful.
What say you, uh, um
- Jawbreaker. That's me.
I'm Jawbreaker.
Mr. Grimlock, siruh, sire?
- [chuckles]
Just call me Grimlock.
- [squeals]
[bright music]
Oh, are you gonna show me
your fire breath?
Does it technically make you
a Dragon-bot?
Did any real dinosaurs
breathe fire?
- Jawbreaker.
Jawbreaker, let's focus on
helping you feel
more fierce, okay?
- Deal! Wait, but how?
I mean, I don't even have
an alt mode.
- I'm gonna let you in
on a little secret.
You don't need an alt mode
to be your best self.
- Oh, I don't?
- No!
And I'll prove it.
Pretend that's a Decepticon
who hurt your family
and show me
what you're gonna do about it.
[hand thunks]
- [grunts]

Uh, uh
Oh, sorry.
Uh, that isn't
what I meant to
- Leave it be. It's fine.
Maybewatch me first.
Everything you need
is already inside your spark.
Just harness it, and
- Whoa!
The Seismic Stomp.
- See?
Make it work for you.
Now, try again.
- [grunts]
- Again!
- [grunts]
- Very good!
Keep going!
And let me hear you.
- [grunting]
- [laughs] Oh,
you can do better than that.
[car thunks]
Heads up!
[power whirs]
- [gasps]
[dramatic music]
- [grunts]
- [chuckles] See?
That power has always been
a part of you,
and you can control it.
But it can also control you.
Use it wisely,
and it's a beautiful thing.
- Whoa, this is amazing!
Thanks, Mr. Grimlock!
Can you show me
some Dinobot moves too?
I-I was kinda pretending to
be you in the Bot Brawl, and
[power whirs]
I did this with my arms
[cheers and applause]
[Jawbreaker imitating
and fighting sounds]
Kaboom, and,
oh, here it comes.
Pow, pow, pow, pow!
- Ah!
- And the crowd goes wild!
[imitates fighting sounds]
- Kid, kid, kid.
- Huh?
- Let's go see
what Elita's doing.
[soft dramatic music]
- [grunting]
[upbeat music]
[tires screech]
- Go, Hashtag, go!
- JB? Where's Grimlock?
- Dibs!
- Dude, save some for me!

- [grunts]
[both grunting]
[laughs] Yes!
Did you guys see me?
- Easy, Jawbreaker.
Remember what I said about
controlling your inner power
so it doesn't control you?
- Oh. Oh, right.
Grimlock showed me
how to be fierce,
but I'm still learning
how to do it right.
Sorry, Hashtag.
- [grumbles]
Just don't practice so hard
next time.
- Maybe you could
help me practice?
- [chuckles]
Sure. First thing
- It'll be like round two
of our wrestling match.
Kaboom! Wow! Wah, kapow!
But you have the best,
most powerful alt mode
I've ever seen!
[power whirs]
- [grunts]
- I could beat you up!
Fight you! Pow, pow, pow!
- S-stop, Jawbreaker!
- One, two, one.
Heads up! Kablam!
[imitates fighting sounds]
[power whirs]
- I said stop!
- Ah!
[electricity whirring]
- [groans]
Hey, kid, you okay?
[dramatic music]

[system chirping, beeping]
[suit whirring]
- [roars]
- Jawbreaker?
How did you do that?
- Do what?
- You picked an alt mode.
- You're a Dinobot!
- Um, I did?
I am!
- From just bones?
- Not how trans-scanning
usually works.
- You hear that, Jawbreaker?
You've got a natural knack
for trans-scanning!
- [whirring]
I guess I am good at this.
And it happened
just like you said, Elita!
My spark told me
what was right,
and my T-Cog made it happen!
Which Dinobot am I?
- Aww, you're a cute one.
- [purring]
- I learned about these
in school.
It's called, um, a stygimoloch.
They were plant eaters
and they traveled in herds.
- Like families?
- Exactly.
And their skulls were
for headbutting predators
who threatened their group.
Mom says stygies were common
around here.
- [laughs]
[foreboding music]
- Grim?
- Grimlock!
Now we can wrestle!
Dinobot versus Dinobot!
[power whirs]
- [groans]
- Come on, go Dino mode
and we'll see who's better!
[power whirs]
- [groaning]
[heartbeat thumping]
[distorted cheering]
[thunder booms]
You don't need an alt mode
to be your best self.
- Oh, come on.
You don't have
to say that anymore,
now that I have an alt mode.
[thunder booms]
- [grunts]
[power whirs]
- [no speech]
- [groans]
- JB, that's enough!
[power whirs]
- [panting]
[both grunting]
- [screams]
I'm warning you, kid.
Sometimes, Dino mode gets
my special Rage power stuck,
and people get hurt!
- Aw, but it's not like
you're still under Mandroid's
mind control or anything, so
- Go away!
[tense music]
[electricity crackles]


[metal echoing,
sharp ringing]
[device rattles]
- It's-it's okay, Grim.
Just calm down
and we'll bring you home.
- I don't wanna hurt you!
So just leave me alone!
[screams, roars]
- Malto, s-stay behind me.
- [growls]

[footsteps thumping]
- [whirs]
This is bad.
This is really bad.
It's all my fault.
- We'll discuss this later.
Right now,
Hashtag, you're with me.
- Yes, ma'am.
- Mo, I need you to stay here
with Jawbreaker.
Whatever Grim unlocked in him
could be more trouble than help
right now.
- Good luck.
[tense, somber music]

[tires screeching,
engines roaring]
[people screaming]
[footsteps thumping]
[car alarm wailing]
- [roars]
[tires screeching]
- We have to stop him before
he hurts someone, or himself.
- [roars]
- [grunts]
You're on fire brigade.
I'm on Grimlock.
[tires screech]
- [roars]
- Grim?
Elita-1 here. Your friend.
- [growls]
- I know you're in there.
I just wanna bring you home,
- [roars]
- [gasps]
- [growls]
- I promise
they're set to stun!
And I'll stop if you do!
- [sighs]
I should've known
not to bring up Grimlock's time
with Mandroid.
How could I be so stupid?
[somber music]
- You're not stupid.
Don't say that.
- I just wanted everyone
to know that I can be fierce,
that I can be more
than one thing
and not get put on
the sidelines anymore.
- I get it.
Sometimes, people can only
see me as one thing
a kid, or a girl.
- Or Ensaymada.
- Yeah.
Sorry for calling you that.
- It's okay. I am sweet.
- [giggles]
- [laughs]
- Can we make a pinky promise?
We're both growing up,
so we can help each other
change when we need to.
But let's make sure
we never stop being us.
- Deal.
- [roars]
- [shouts]
- This was easier
when it was five on one!
- [yelps, groans]
- Sorry!
- [roars]
- Hashtag, look out!
- [grunts, groans]
- Hashtag!
[tense music]

[thunder booms]
- [grunts]
- [roars]
[dramatic music]
- Thanks for the assist.
- [roaring]
- I can't have you kids
fighting your way out of this.
- I know I messed up,
but if anyone can get through
to him, it's me.
- All right,
let's give it a go.
But if I call it off,
you egress ASAP, got it?
- Got it.
- Hashtag, get Mo to cover.

- Grimlock!
- [roars]
- Your powerful Rage is a gift.
But you control it!
- [roars]
- Don't let it control you.
- [groans]
- [roars]

- [grunts]
- [growls]
- You taught me the real us
is always inside.
[power whirring]
- [gasps]
- [roars]
- I may be looking at a T. rex,
but I see you, Grimlock.
- [roars]
- [whimpers]
- [whirring]
- [grunts, sighs]
- Thanks, kid.
I needed to hear that.
[soft music]
