    Galvatron was Megatron? I mean when the Quintesson revived him, Oppy kind of started giving the non-plague infected Autobots instructions and went right into action.

    The when walking in the cave to get the heat-resistent metal, he tells Galvy he knows him to well (why didn't reveal why he wanted the metal).

    So does Optimus know he was walking alongside Megatron?

    YouTube - The Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime

    At 0:38, Rodimus tells Prime what happened to Megatron after Prime died. Yeah, it's not anywhere NEAR being cannon (since Prime imediately says the F-word after Rodimus explains, and then later on renames Kup as Shitpiece), but considering how screwed up Season 3/4 was (plus it's Dr. Smoov, and EVERYBODY loves Dr. Smoov, even the Botcon guys who asked him to make their movies), it's close enough.

    I always figured Optimus Prime got briefed by one of the Autobots in Skylynx on the way to Charr in TROOP. Goldbug, Blurr, Blaster and Sh|tpiece all knew the truth by then.

    Watch Dark Awakening the Quints revived Prime as a Zombie and he faced a number of Decepticons and he knew at that time about Galvy, maybe the Quints told him aswell. And in The Return Of Optimus Prime, Prime goes to Galvy "thats because i know you to well Galvatron" and he was refering about Megs aswell.

    When prime first awakens he says something like "tell me everything" to the remaining autobots. I think that was meant to be a catch all line to the fact that prime is now full of knowledge of things that happened while he was dead.

    Actually, how did all the other Autos know Megs is Galvy?

    Prime was inside the matrix, full of wisdom and knowledge. He announced Rodimus Prime's existence and told Hot Rod what his new name would be. I'm sure he knew.

    I always thought (then and now) that the Autobots in the matrix knew what was going on through Rodimus' eyes

    It's possible that they just put the pieces together over time, or that they discovered the truth through recon. The story of what happened at Starscream's coronation probably spread pretty quickly.

    Wouldn't that kind of make the Autobots think Megatron is a completely different person and has nothing to do with Galvatron

    With that line, I believe that was Galvatron's intent. A public statement to Ultra Magnus that a new Decepticon has stepped up to fill Megatron's shoes, while hiding that he is really Megs. But when he attempts to kill Hot Rod later inside Unicron:

    "First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now you. It's a pity you Autobots die so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction now."

    Galvatron flat-out admits to Hot Rod that he is Megatron, but intended to kill him, and the knowledge with him. Unfortunately things didn't go according to plan and Rodimus probably let some of the Autobots know that Galvatron was formerly Megatron.

    Plus, Five Faces of Darkness part 1 showed that Astrotrain, at least, had figured out Megatron and Galvatron were the same. It's entirely possible others on both sides figured it out on their own and clued in Optimus.

    I forgot which, but one episode one of the Con's said,

    "Well they're the same guy."

    If you've been at battle with your war-brother for ages, and ages, I'm sure you would know it was him even if he had changed completely.

    It don't take a genius to figure out massive ARM cannon, leader of deceptions and the fact he looks like megatron with a crown

    Wasn't it The Burdon ardest to Bear that Scourge had the Matrix in him?

    If nothing else, when Hot Rod got the Matrix back, information could have passed that way.

    I was gonna go with "these things didn't matter when we were 10", but I guess what you're saying makes more sense, even if the whole confession thing fell upon deaf audio processors.
