In Dark Awakening the Quintessons used special ciruit implants to bring Prime`s body back to a pseudo-life so they could destroy the Autobots.  Rodimus gave him back the Matrix but at the end of the episode he gave it back to Hot Rod saying the the Quints were”monsters, they used me to destroy the very ones I loved in life, but you will save them”.  Was his life force ever in his body, did he exert some sort of control or did the implants back fire since some of his memory and personality remained?  If he was still in the Matrix, how was he able to return to his body when Rodimus had the Matrix in Return of Optimus Prime pt.1?
