Behind the wall but no longer cloaked, Arcee bears witness to the events unfolding before her with a clear vantage point. Before long she spots a bulbous metal contraption beside the Quintesson judge. Dropping down her goggles and zooming in on it, she notices five separate sources of light hovering inside--the sparks of her fellow Autobot compatriots.
"Optimus, stop!" pleads Magnus, pinned to the floor.
Arcee panics briefly, but then gathers herself. Surely, barging in on the scene would do little good. If only she could get a proper angle to shoot the device open and free the sparks, it might be enough to return everyone back to normal. Arcee aims her pistol, steadies her hand...
"And just what do you think you're doing?" Mirage unstealths himself behind her and smirks, surprising Arcee. He grabs ahold of her arms and turns her to face him. "The Quintessons allow no one to escape judgment!"
"AAAAAHHHHHHH" Magnus screams as his spark is vaccuumed out of his body and into the Quintesson's control device with the others. He steps to his feet, his mind and his optics clouded, and moves with the others toward Rodimus.
Arcee quickly knees Mirage in the stomach plate and konks her pistol over his head. He collapses onto the floor, no match for a fembot on a mission. Nothing could break her concentration now.
Formulating a plan, Arcee picks up Mirage and engages the electro-distruptor mounted on his shoulder. The photons around them bend, and in an instant the two Autobots are invisible. Arcee transforms, nudges Mirage into the passenger seat to keep herself hidden, and zooms across the room toward a struggling Rodimus Prime.
"No one escapes judgment... No one escapes... judgment..." they chant, "No one--" *KKRRRSSSHHHH*
The droned Autobots mysteriously go flying as Arcee plows through them on her way to the Quintesson judge. It buys a confused Rodimus enough time to get back to his feet.
Arcee transforms back to robot mode beside the Quintesson; she reappears as Mirage falls away from her.
"Arcee!" Rodimus shouts, relieved.
She shoots the Quint and he falls, crying out for the guards as he hits the ground. Wasting no time, Arcee blasts the metal device beside him open. The six sparks fly out and back into their respective bodies. Kup's optics flash to life... Optimus, Mirage, and the others get back their bearings just as a swarm of sharkticons begin to overtake the room...
