    So MECH found Breakdown's corpse last episode and fixed it up. Conveniently, Silas gets critically injured in the next episode and now has a new robot body to hook up into.

    Which makes me wonder, did the writers kill off Breakdown to do a character death while making a segue into this plot point? They could have spared BD and done it with Nemesis Prime's body. But they didn't which makes me think there will be future plot points around Breakdown and his friend's enemies.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    More proof that Breakdown dying was stupid and unnessessary.

    It's been seven days. The maximum for being careful with spoilers. Would you like me not to spoil the fact that Wheeljack comes back, too?

    Another thought, is that the writers got rid of BD to introduce another TF which has Silas' personality.

    Dude, chill. It's been a full week since Crossfire. Not really a spoiler anymore.

    Also, there's another thread titled "possible revival of BD" which gives the reader the same message. Yet no one was complaining about that.

    Oh, he'll live again.
    Because, luckily for Breakdown, MECH is anything but conventional.

    I think the voice actor didn't want to do this anymore.

    I think Breakdown is still alive, and that he and Silas will be fighting for control.

    It could be interesting, and a nice way to perhaps explore Breakdown as a character a little more - even if he is (as himself) gone.

    That would depend on how sparks function in the Prime cartoon, and if Breakdown's is extinguished or what-not.

    It could be interesting if it's handled well or maybe if there's like like an inner conflict between Breakdown and Silas.

    I think there is something to Breakdown being the one to be taken off.

    If no one was killed off, Silas's return wouldn't be possible.
    SPOILERS


    Nemesis was confiscated at the end of tonight's episode.

    And also, what would have more of an impact on the characters? Having a human's mind in a knock-off clone of OP or having a human's mind occupying and controlling a Cybertronian they know/believe to be dead?

    The Autobots will be shocked at seeing Silas in Breakdown's body (less if they know BD kicked the bucket beforehand) and the Decepticons... a range from shock to horror and possibly even feel that humanity may not be as weak as them seem. That could lead to either Megatron deciding to exterminate the human race or transform them into robot slaves (fanfic moment there).

    Meh Silas should've taken Nemesis Prime's body instead of Breakdown's.
