As if Optimus hasn't gotten short with Smokescreen before? He was furious with him when he put Jack's life in danger. Even Optimus can get strict when he has to. I'm a supervisor where I work, and while it's not in my nature to be mean to people, I understand the importance of lecturing people from time to time. I don't do it to be snooty or arrogant, but I need a unified team with everyone doing their part, and I won't lie--some people work my nerves to the point where I can get mean. But that's getting off the subject just a tad. Just as Arcee was hard on Smokescreen, I think a lot of people are being hard on Arcee. Again, she had good intentions. It was tough love. I'm sure she quickly realized the error of her way. This is hardly an irredeemable crime on her part.
