    halfway through the ep, dreadwing says starscream committed a "capitol offense" for aiding an autobot. but wouldn't dreadwing and optimus teaming up to defeat starscream be considered aiding an autobot? do you think dreadwing will be in hot water with megatron for this?

    He'll probably be in hot water for not getting the artifact, rather than teaming up with Optimus.

    It's not like Megatron had too much of a problem working with the Autobots when he needed to.

    He was told to fetch the relic. He wasn't told how he was to fetch it.

    Its one thing to team up with an enemy against a more powerful enemy, it is another to help an enemy defeat your former allies

    I think it's possible that Dreadwing might get into a little trouble with Megatron. But on that same note, unlike Starscream, Dreadwing teamed up with Prime only temporarily so that he could stop Starscream. Had things gone differently, and the two had removed the armour from Starscream, Dreadwing probably would have killed Prime, locked up Starscream and taken the relic back to Megatron.

    Dreadwing deemed it a capital offense due to his code of honor. Giving information to your enemies to selfishly further your own goals (ala Starscream) is a heinous act in Dreadwings eyes.

    Megatron still wants Starscream dead. However i dont think Megatron looks at a code of honor, nor any official statement of what Starscream did as being a 'capital offense'. Megatron just wants Starscream dead cause he's pissed off at him.

    :lol 

    Would Scumbag Dreadwing also work? The "I Lied!"-face? Perhaps even the troll-face?

    But yeah, I agree with the people who say that Dreadwing might get a verbal smackdown from Megatron, providing Megatron even finds out. It's one thing for the traitorous Starscream to do something like this (for which Megatron would just beat the ever-loving f**k out of Starscream), but Dreadwing is actually a competent, trustworthy second-in-command who essentially teamed up with an Autobot once to help stop the above-mentioned traitorous Starscream. It's an offense, but something that I can see Megatron forgiving based on the circumstances.

    Yeah, what Tyler said. Dreadwing wouldn't have had to team up with Prime if Screamer hadn't been a douche.

    How can Dreadwing criticize Starscream for helping Prime (not that Starscream really had a choice in that matter) after DW made it very clear that were it up to him, he'd kill Screamer. SS did what he had to survive. Why Dreadwing sided with Prime idk, he could have just flown away and let Screamer deal with Optimus. Double standards, Dredwing u dick

    it doesnt count of you have no choice, im pretty sure megatron would want a beefed up starcream dead more than a regular optimus, since starscream probably could actually take on the full decepticon ship with the apex armour, optimus and his friends could barely take megatron on there own....

    Exactly.

    He wouldn't be a very good 2nd in command if he did.
