      Beast Wars - Victory is an episode that offers the Maximals a second chance to return to Cybertron, which was a little surprising to me since the previous episode also presented them with an opportunity to return, and now all of a sudden we have another, back to back. That oddity aside, this is another quality episode that offers a blend of humor, action and light drama. It is a great triple combination that works very well.

      In this episode, the Maximals supposedly witness the Predicons destruction due to a rebellion that occurred near the test lab where the


      Predicons were experimenting with some energon. A fight breaks out, and the energon is hit, resulting in an explosion.

      The Maximals celebrate, believing the beast wars may be over, but to be certain, they venture to the Predicon base, on guard. They search the base, find some remains of one of the Predicons, and assume that the rest of the Predicons must have been obliterated in the blast.

      They then salvage the parts they need to repair their own base so that it can again be capable of flight. During all this, Dinobot is on edge and even becomes ...


      • angered when Cheetor is joking around with a pair of Tarantulas’ legs.

        Optimus understands the pain Dinobot is feeling, knowing that even though he left the Predicons, they were still his comrades in a sense. Later in the episode, Dinobot announces that he will not join the Maximals in returning to Cybertron, and although his decision upsets Cheetor and Optimus objects, Optimus allows him to leave.

        This episode is one that does a great job of demonstrating how torn Dinobot really is as a character and how he does not feel comfortable with who he is, other than when

        he is fighting. The Predicons are his enemy, yet he mourns their deaths.

        He chooses to remain behind, even though he knows that it will ultimately lead to his termination. In a way, Dinobot’s decision to stay behind seems almost cowardly, as if he would rather die on planet than answer for his crimes on Cyberton.

        Still, the plot demanded that he take this course of action. The ending to the episode, while intense, is pretty unbelievable and I wish that the writers would have attempted to handle it a little better.

        Nonetheless, the episode is still one that I look forward to watching.
