    I'm still calling time-travel,
    As the secret behind Cliffjumper will unravel.

    I'm calling a flashback episode unless a new McGuffin is found that grants Ratchet powers of resurrection, and Cliff's body just happens to be on-hand... (or maybe they'll use that remaining piece of horn Arcee put on his cairn).

    Seriously, Prime might play fast and loose with some stuff, but I don't think they're going to just bring back dead characters like nothing happened.

    It's gotta be a flashback episode.

    I'm also thinking time travel. arcee travels back in time, so naturally, she seeks out cliffjumper. somewhere along the way, she runs into other decepticons like starscream(who is still in charge of the decepicons at this point) and shockwave.

    It definitely seems like a flashback, but I can't help but think
    the bit in the preview where the two Vehicons bring in Cliffjumper, and Arcee is all like "What the actual f**k?" hints at something else
    . Nevertheless, I'm hoping it's a good episode, I'm looking forward to Shockwave and I'm praying he isn't killed off too soon.

    It has to be a flashback episode, surely. I still think that it's just Arcee talking to Miko and trying to comfort her....as for
    the whole looking shocked at Cliffjumper thing, I guess we'll have to wait and see what that's about

    Flash back. Cliffjumper and Arcee were fighting Shockwave on the Nemesis. Shockwave was not present during Cliffjumpers' death.

    Also, Starscream is leading troops which is unusual.

    I am also calling flashback.

    As to why Arcee is looking surprised, maybe this is the first time she sees him since he rescued her from Airachnid after Tailgate's death, and Arcee wasn't expecting to see him again. And the resultant escape the two pull off, leads to Cliffjumper becoming her partner, until his death.

    My favorite thing is Starscream looking serious and competent, even menacing, like he was in Darkness Rising.

    What I don't get, is why Cliffjumper's appearance is so dramatic in the promo.

    Starscream is leading Soundwave. That alone should prove it's not taking place in the present.

    Hopefully Shockwave survives this episode. And hopeully this episode ties in with the events of the present, hopefully leading Shockwave into the main 'Con cast.

    I have a feeling that Shockwave's appearance here will only be a taste of what's to come in season 3.

    Should still be good, though.

    Probably because he was killed in the first episode, and this is the first time he's been seen alive since.

    Anyway, that is something I've noticed with the advertising of this episode, it seems to primarily focus on "DA TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF CALEEEEEFFFJOOOOMPAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!" rather than "This is Shockwave. He's our new friend. Say hello Shockwave. Oh and Cliffjumper's back too." the promos for Loose Cannons did a similar thing, putting more emphasis on Wheeljack being back than on the introduction of Dreadwing. I guess kids care more about the good guys than they do about the bad guys.
