    Really, with all the commotion happening, where was Wheeljack? Ratchet could have at least contacted him to assist on all the life-threatening events that took place while he was roaming around like a rogue bot. Don't get me wrong now. I like Wheeljack and his ability to kick aft. Even Bulkhead or anyone else in this matter forgot to mention him in any episodes after "Loose Cannons". I hope we get to see Jacky before the so-called "seasonal break" of TFP I've been hearing lately.

    Wheeljack was probably busy in Xbox live against Dreadwing, Soundwave and Knockout .

    Ol' Sparky will get there eventually. He's stuck in desert traffic.

    How does one get stuck in ghost traffic?

    Anyways, Jackie's in non-existence land, sitting at a bar with all the side characters from the movies and Dreadwing, Soundwave and Knockout, wondering why the world hates him.

    At least he's not in Dead land. All anyone ever does there is yell.

    "Where's Arcee?!"
    "Where's Knockout?!"
    "Where's Dreadwing?!"

    He's probably still exploring the planet. It's a pretty big place.

    What life and death situation? The autobots were clearly never in any danger except Arcee. Even Bulkhead was never in any danger, because there were constant distractions to save him. Wheeljack would have been pretty useless in this episode.

    Wheeljack isn't a regular cast member. He doesn't need to show up or be mentioned every episode. Or every other. Let the writers use him when he's actually needed, not just because you want him there.

    He hasn't been shown because Wheeljack actually died in Season 1 and Makeshift was the one who actually lived.

    That's highly unlikely, since before Makeshift died he was talking in Makeshift's voice, referred to Starscream as "lord", and was acting like Makeshift and not like Wheeljack

    That is because the great actor Makeshift fooled everyone.

    I could've sworn I saw him in the "Flying Mind" promo, if it was for a split second. I could be wrong though because it might've been Bumblebee.

    Is this question going to be asked after every episode? Wheeljack is off exploring around; being all Tigatron-ish. He'll be in the occasional episode just as he was before staying on earth (ie one), but the writers now don't have to make an excuse for him to come back to our system.

    I bet after the Season break all the Episode will feature tons of Wheeljack, Soundwave, Knockout and Dreadwing... Of least I hope...

    Nope. I rarely post a discussion thread like this. Well I hope by the time he shows up, he should show some concern and/or sympathy to his comrades about the previous events they endured... If not, then him being an Autobot will really be questionable, given that they are suppose to be protecting and helping one another...
