    When Dylan reports that the Autobots are alive and in Chicago, he and Sentinel are on the roof of the building. His next scene is when Carly approaches him, he is lying in an alley. What happened to him in between?

    The novelization says Sentinel threw him off the building into the alley. In that case he shouldn’t have been seen alongside Sentinel when he was being deposed.

    Well he either used his legs and walked, or he used his wheels and drove.
    It's crazy, i know.

    Short answer: :bay  -magic.

    Long answer; we don't really know. As it's been said, the novel says that Sentinel basically chucked Megatron from the building. But of course there's scene of that in the movie, so there isn't really much of an answer other than "he walked and stuff". Between "Decepticons, defend the pillars!" and Megatron chillin' in the alley, it could've easily been 1-2 hours between those two events. Plenty of time for Megatron to scale down the building and wind up in the alley.

    After being completely shamed by Sentinel he skulked there to wallow in his self pity. Good answer?

    He probably got the hell away from Sentinel before he could rip the other half of his face off.

    The timeline of that part of the whole movie is messed up, haha. Answer is:

    What can you say, it's Mike Bay?

    I too in the theater thought, wtf is he doing down there. I could assume Sent beat him and threw him down there. They could had shown that confrontation and the animosity/tension between them, then when Megs comes back at the bridge to take him out, it would have even more pop. Not a stupid motivational speech by a human, heh.

    As you said, the simplest answer really just is :bay 

    Which they did. With that whole tension-building, animosity-setting-up "I will never work FOR you!"-sequence. That's enough to set up angst between them to motivate Megatron's wrecking of Sentinel. The question still remains why he was in that alley.
