    Was anyone disappointed on how Cylas was wasted. Could of been interested between him with Knockout and facing Bulkhead. Could provide the cons an even plain field against the autobots. Like I feel, the cons are always short out of characters.

    Well we actually don't know if Silas is indeed dead. For all we know Knockout's doing worse things to him by keeping him alive in some twisted manner.

    It still ruins the concept of Silas being inside Breakdown.

    Also making BD's death even more useless and unnecessary.

    I doubt he's still around, Knockout probably turned him in a rag for his hood wax by now.

    I'm still hoping that Silas ends up in the Nemesis Prime body.

    Oh and maybe he'll escape and team up with Starscream... again?

    Nope. Cylas deserved what he got, karma's a bitch in his case. He loves carving up bots into little pieces, now he'll realize what it feels like coming from an insane mad doctor with a fetish for vengeance.

    The only similarity between him and Megatron... Both are completely ruthless and I'm sure Megatron would pay no mind to killing his own Vehicon drones. After all, they are apparently expendable.

    We don't even know if Silas is dead. Megatron said Silas would be studied by Knockout.

    In Megatron terms, "studied" would mean "dissected". Why else would he sentence Silas to Knock Out's dissection table?

    I've had a really crazy theory about Silas. And by theory, I mean I'd just like to see this happen and don't think it ever would. :p  WARNING, UPCOMING EPISODE SPOILERS!


    So in an upcoming episode,
    Smokescreen is captured, and he attempts to retrieve some stolen keys
    . Assuming Silas isn't actually dead (Knock Out's the sick kind of bot that might prefer a 'live' subject), it's possible he might be held captive as well. Smokescreen could be forced to work with Silas in escaping/getting the keys. And Silas, after going through Knock Out's examination, might get another new outlook on life and decidea he wants to change. This would fit with information we've gotten about a character having a 'Dinobot' moment. Maybe at this point he is killed helping Smokescreen escape with the keys.

    If he isn't killed and they both escape, Silas might want to join the Autobots. There are obvious problems, and the main one being from Bulkhead, who doesn't like what Silas has done with Breakdown's body, and when someone (let's say Miko) mentions their surprise that Bulkhead cares for his archnemesis, it is at this point that the past between Bulkhead and Breakdown is explored.

    Again, no evidence that this will happen, but I can wish. :)

    True but we still don't if Silas is dead. I'm just going to wait for future episodes for the confirmation on whether he's alive or dead.

    I guess, but it could of been expanded more. Cylas is right and the human factor helps the autobots beat the cons more ways than another. Why not keep him in the crew to take that advantage away.

    I didn't like Silas,he was booring & a megamaniac type soldier.

    I am thankfully that silas & crew are a done deal. I had my fears that silas & crew would ruin the season 2 finale episodes.

    I honestly feel that Silas couldn't really be explored any further. And c'mon, Megatron hates humans. Why would he keep one around, especially when's said human is wearing a 'Cons armor as a second skin?

    Plus, as another user stated, karma is a bitch. He deserved what he got.

    I seriously hope Cylas is heard from again, even if he's mostly disabled to be seen again later when one of the bots board the ship.

    Or maybe Starscream goes on and instead of finding an autobot he finds his former 'ally' who betrayed him. Who knows Starscream is in need of a henchman and a experimented on Cylas/Silas might be the best of available options, but I think KnockOut is more likely.

    You mean how they forgot about her in the Smokescreen episode?

    I thought it was cool that they remembered her.

    I really doubt we've seen the last of Silas. After all, Tomy has a toy to sell.... I doubt they retooled that front end for nothing...
