    I hope this is the right spot for this.

    I just got into Beast Wars through Netflix, and I've enjoyed Season 1 so far. My only question: Why is Megatron so upset when Tarantulus is killed? It's obvious that he has SOMETHING in mind for him, because he let him get away with stealing the Transwarp Drive and was following his scheming about escaping from the alien's destruction of the planet, but to what end? Unless it's explained next season (haven't started it yet), it's a plot thread that's gonna bug me (no pun intended) for a while :?

    Thanks.

    He wanted Tarantulus to use the pod so he can do what he ended up being able to do to Primal.

    He planned to have Tarantulas and his pod be re-routed into the alien machine and destroy it. That's why he's so elated that he and Primal both come upon the same idea. It's all explained.
