Are you ready for some good old fashion Starscream shenanigans?
Was wondering when this would start. Still no preview clip though? What are they playing at?
I dunno... this Starscream ispretty unpredictable, so his supposed factionswitch may be sincere and it may not be. It depends on what happens and how it could benefit him.It would be REALLY awesome to see a genuine Autobot Starscream that lasts for more than 5 episodes though. Although I'm thinking he'll switch back to the cons by the season finale since they're releasing his toy as a Decepticon.
As ready as I am for the summer and hot nuts... nights!
I hope 'Screamer will be less misreable and pathetic and remebers his badass persona from Darkness Rising. And I just can't for his 'I want to join the side of good' speech XD
I hope that this isn't just a one-episode thing, that'll be really disappointing, but I think it'll last more than one episode, due to the fact that Megs isn't particularly happy with Screamer at the moment, so if Screamer failed in just one episode it won't be good news for him
Yeah, it seems like too much of a big thing/important plot line to let it go to waste.
Well, they did mention it was Dinobot style- switching.... so maybe Screamer's defection is sincere? I mean, it only took Dinobot one/two episodes after years as a Predacon, right?
I'm still pretty convinced that infiltrating the Autobot base will be Starscream's "last chance" from Megs. Either that or Megatron will really push SS on the edge (e.g. by stripping him of his rank). I just hope they won't handle it the way Armada did (i.e. killing Starscream).
If Starscream were to stay with the 'Bots for longer, Agent Fowler should be his human partner. Hilarity would ensue.
DinotBot's reason for defecting was so he could use the Maximals as a force against Megatron, he just ended up changing his ways after he joined the Maximal team. I cannot see Starscream doing the same. He probably switched to save his own butt, and because the Autobots have something he wants.
But I have been wrong before so we'll just have to see tonight.
That was the initial reason, yes, but his actual switching of sides left him very conflicted. Ultimately what made him change sides for good was his honour, something Starscream lacks.
Thanks for that. I was trying to make that point but I still have trouble putting it into words...er font... you get it.
I'm looking forward to this episode. Starscream's switch should be interesting and even though I doubt it will be permanent, I do hope it lasts more than one episode. This is an interesting concept and I'd like to see it explored extensively.
Frankly I'm just excited for more Starscream. He's hands down the best character in the show and probably my favourite Starscream ever. Everything he does, he does in his own little flamboyantly unique way.
I'd love to see how Starscream would act as an Autobot, but I really only see it as a ploy to gain advantage over the Autobots. Either that or he'll act out of cowardice to Megatron and will want protection from the Autobots. If this were the case though, I'm sure he'd be back to being a con in no time. I'm sure though that the status quo of his allegiance will be the same at the end of the episode, I'd really like to be wrong though.
Should be neat.
It would be interesting how everyone will react to starscream's presence.
Will see what happens.
Really looking forward to this episode
I hope it turns out like that G1 audiobook where Starscream "joined" the Autobots to get secret information Megatron thought they had. Needless to say the Autobots caught on quickly, fed him false information and basically told him to get the fuck out before he's blown to pieces.
Dang, Xaddion, let someone else do the episode discussion threads,
I am not expecting much from this supposed faction switch. I may be wrong, but this Starscream would never do something major like this unless it benefited himself.
My guess is either Starscream's switching is some sort of trick or he's just THAT scared of Megatron.
