Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Although the Transformers episode "Starscream's Ghost" chronologically takes place after "Thief in the Night" and "Fight or Flee," it was seen before these two episodes when it first aired in the U.S. on October 2, 1986. Fleeing from his fellow Decepticons, the duplicitous Octane is given shelter by Autobot Sandstorm, with whom he forms a strong friendship. Unfortunately, Cyclonus and the Sweeps catch up with Octane, chasing him into a Decepticon Crypt -- where his body is promptly taken over by the vengeful spirit of the late Starscream. The episodes concludes on a typical "the end -- or is it?" note. "Starscream's Ghost" was written by Megeen McLauglin.
