I did enjoy this episode. I actually made an effort to watch it late last night but fell asleep due to exhausation. So I tried again tonight and was thorougly impressed.

I liked how Blackarachnia cried at the end. It's not usual for Transformers especially and it makes them seem much more human as I can appreciate how she feels to have gone through what she has. It's not just cold, mechanical revenge but a layer of hurt that tears away at her.

As for Sentinel Prime and Elita-1 themselves, I felt that in the flashbacks they deserved what was coming. They were the ones who wanted to keep going when Optimus said not to. Now they turn around and blame it on poor ol' Optimus.

I do agree that what holds this back is the excessive Halloween hunting aspect of it. Nevertheless its still a very decent episode.
