    I heard around Crossfire-time that the Prime producers had said that the body count would double this season. Considering after the math that, if this is true, we're actually due for three more deaths this season, can anyone provide some sort of link or quote to confirm this?

    I've heard that. I'm really hoping Airachnid is on that list.

    Heh. I'll laugh when the next character dies in Season 2. All the 'but they said only one major death's, and the 'no! I loved (insert name here.)

    They did phrase it in such a way that if anyone else dies, they didn't actually lie- they said "a major character will die between the start and middle of season 2", which leaves the middle and ending of season 2 for more deaths.

    Tricky producers. ;)

    If Dreadwing dies, it BETTER be handled in a powerful and well-written manner.

    Same for Arcee.

    What about Steve, he's almost in every episode, that has to count as major!

    Bulkhead and Airachnid does come to mind. Though I'm not sure if Dreadwing is going to be killed off after his promised 12 character arc's ended. If he does then no biggie. :)  Silas's also a posiblty too because they ddin't say it's stuck to robots only.

    Just as long it's not Arcee I'm fine with who ever's killed off.

    Then again they could habv actually meant for the lesser characters to be killed off like the Insecticons and Seaspray and Breakdown could be the only major character for this season at least.

    My guess is Bumper, Hubcap and Glyph. But it's their own fault. They're Cliffjumper retools in the same place as Arcee.

    Perhaps Tailgate and Cliffjumper aren't the only partners that Arcee lost. The killer of Bumper would end up being Knockout (Arcee: *gasp* You killed my partner!), Hudcap gets blasted to bits by Dreadwing (Arcee: You'll pay for killing my partner!), and Glyph dies from cancer (Arcee: I'll kill you cancer!!).

    Five. Cliff, Quake and Makeshift. That means three last season and six this season, minus Breakdown who has died already, this season.

    If tailgate counts as part of last seasons as well, that would possibly mean that Spray, Roadbuster, Pryo, Rotorstorm and Impactor counted for this season, leaving two out of eight death left to go. So lets hope Tailgate doesn't count as part of last seasons casualties and we have five out of six left to go.

    Besides Cliffjumper, who died last season? Are they counting Makeshift? What about Tailgate? Technically, he was dead long before the show started. That was only a flashback.

    I don't think Tailgate would count as he technically died before the first season. Also, Makeshift could be considered the equivalent of a Vehicon. It's not like he was a character or anything. More like a mcguffin.

    I recall them saying simply that the body count would increase, not that increase would be a double of last season's

    Whoa. Where did you get four deaths? I only recall during the Prime panel at NYCC that the body count doubled from 1 to 2. And I don't even know if that refers to the first half of season 2, or the entire season. Then again, if it did only refer to the first half, I wouldn't be surprised if the body count suddenly multiplied during the second half.

    I doubt it. They don't have the budget to add more characters. As for body count doubling, they probably talking about all those Insecticons that will be killed eventually. How many characters did BW have at this point in the series?

    So two deaths and not three? (I'm counting
    Breakdown's
    death as the first) That's kind of a relief.
