Drake's sophisticated VR simulations train the Machination team on how to destroy Transformers from a large camper van near Lake Michigan. Meanwhile, at the bottom of the lake, Ratchet informs the humans about returning to their normal lives. Megatron learns about Ore-13 and its natural occurrence on Earth, suspecting it may not be natural. The humans blame Prowl for their rejection, not knowing Prime ordered it. Ironhide and Sunstreaker are tasked with taking the humans home, but are pursued by Drake's team. The Decepticons agree on a reprieve before beginning Phase Two. In Lebanon, Missouri, the humans make their move, heavily damaging Sunstreaker.
