Shadowcon Reviews: Transformers Prime season 2, episode 3: “Orion Pax, Part 3”
As we enter our final review for this epic arc, I’d like to point out that I’ve managed to go non-stop for seven weeks with this, and I feel pretty proud of myself. Hey, it may be petty, but I take a victory or two where I can get it! So Arcee and Jack reach Kaon and the Key’s signal raises a buried vault door. I like that the arena floor that the two are standing on is the same as the one seen in the flashback in “One Shall Rise, Part 3”, when Megatron was seen as a gladiator, crippling his opponents on this very arena platform. The raising of Vector Sigma’s vault door attracts the attention of the vermin that hatched at the end of last episode, leading to a vicious battle between Arcee and the now-named Insecticon. I’ll comment more on the Insecticons when I review “Crossfire”, but for now, I will say that Arcee may have finally met her match, as the Insecticon’s fighting is just ruthless.
