Overloaded, Part 1 is the twenty-seventh episode and the first episode of Transformers: Robots in Disguise Season 2.
The Bee Team must cope with a global Decepticon threat in the Form of Polarclaw who overwhelms them with his sonic roar and Enhanced eyesight and a weakened Optimus Prime. Meanwhile Bumblebee must Face the Decepticon overload and his New mini-con partners backtrack and ransack
Russell buffs Grimlock's side, Sideswipe watches Denny and Fixit play Go Fish, Drift inspects his sword, Windblade examines a stasis pod, and the remaining members of Team Bee listen to Optimus Prime's old war tale. Sideswipe hassles Strongarm, believing she's bothering Optimus, leading to the pair fighting and dislodging the pod Drift is carrying. After Bumblebee has Grimlock stop the pair fighting, they suddenly spot Micronus manifesting as a projection on Grimlock's side. Micronus announces that Optimus must return the portions of the Primes' sparks that he borrowed, and despite Bumblebee's protests, the reversal takes place. Optimus is left perceptibly weakened, though Micronus insists he will recover, eventually. Optimus insists he's mission ready, and Bumblebee announces that he's forming an "away team" consisting of Drift and Windblade to hunt Decepticons far from the scrapyard. Sideswipe opts to join the team too, however when Bumblebee reveals he intends for Optimus to monitor things from the command center, Optimus insists on leading the away team. Fixit detects a Decepticon in the Arctic circle, and after Optimus gives a brief speech, the away team heads through the GroundBridge, which suddenly explodes!
The remaining team deals with the fire by stomping on it, using a fire extinguisher, or in Grimlock's case, dumping a water fountain over it. Fixit manages to raise Optimus and they learn that the away team has safely reached the Arctic near a research installation. Unfortunately the GroundBridge will need to be fixed to get the team back. In the Arctic, Optimus scans for the Decepticon and detects one in a nearby cave, however as they move out, it's clear that Optimus is having trouble just walking.
The other Autobots work on fixing the GroundBridge. Denny and Strongarm wonder if it was a good idea to split the team, especially since they can no longer combine their Decepticon Hunters. At this point Overload arrives and demands they turn over Optimus Prime. The scrapyard's defense systems fire, though they simply bounce off Overload, forcing Fixit and the two humans to seek cover. Bumblebee attempts to attack the Decepticon, but is thrown, knocking the two stasis pods holding the Cyclone Minicons.
Optimus's team make their way up the mountain, though the other Autobots note their leader is slow going, and suggest he fall back. Optimus is about to agree when the Decepticon above starts tossing chunks of ice down at them. Optimus orders the others to move in while he draws the Decepticon's fire, but as they argue, he's knocked off the mountain. Windblade heads up the mountain in her jet mode to distract the Decepticon while the rest of the team try to prevent Optimus from falling. Unfortunately while Slipstream and Jetstorm are able to plant themselves in the side of mountain to provide footholds, the ice quickly begins to crack.
The two Cylone Mini-Cons, freed from their stasis pods, hide themselves in the scrapyard. Fixit looks up Overload in his database, revealing the Decepticon has a history with both Optimus and Bumblebee. Overload has gotten the better of the Autobots, and when Bumblebee reveals that Optimus is absent, Overload realizes he can draw the Autobot leader out by threatening humans in nearby Crown City. The Cyclone Minicons follow him and once the Autobots pick themselves up, they follow suit. The Minicons find Overload first, and he's all too happy to team up with them and wreck the cars in the parking lot he's found. The three soon head towards the city, eager to cause more destruction.
