    So far, we've had 2 characters, Cliffjumper, and Skyquake, buy the farm in the very same episodes they debuted in. If they do the same to Wheeljack, make him a "hi then die" character, I'd be super pissed, especially with them hyping the return of Wheeljack to TF all week.

    I'd be pretty ticked off. No point in introducing new characters just to see them get smoked every week. That being said, I doubt Wheeljack will get killed off.

    That's my biggest fear about tonight, that they will kill off every new character just to keep the status quo of the cast.

    if he dies as well i may stop watching. its like, hey new character, cool story, ok he is dead now, what? Leave a few of em alive for crying out loud. Took forever for em to die in G1 and even in Beastwars almost every character had time for his death to mean something.

    They better not. They have a small cast and 3 looong seasons with this cast would get pretty old fast.

    There's been NO CONFIRMATION of Skyquake's death, goddamn, people. Wheeljack I fear will not have a good ending, but not necessarily death...yet.

    If they kill him off tonight, I may think about not watching anymore, mainly because it would be easy to predict every episode.

    I predict that he won't die, but he'll Tigatron it. He'll go off on is own and show up from time to time..... EVEN if there is a ground bridge that can warp him back in time for supper.

    He'll be fine. The whole mass hysteria regarding character deaths has been premature.

    If he did die, heartbreak hotel. But he won't.

    The nerdrage in this thread makes me lol. If he dies it'll be a shame but it won't ruin all of the great moments we've had in this series, nor will it ruin the potential awesomeness that this series has to offer.

    It would be a shame to see him be a one show character, but I wouldn't be too bothered by it.

    Megatron survived (despite Starscream's treachery), and that's all I care about.

    It would certainly be a shame, but I don't think that the writers would kill off every character other than the main cast.

    Plus I don't think the designers and animators would be down with rendering all these characters only for them to die on first appearance. I hope that Wheeljack sticks around, if not around the base then tigatroning it up as a field unit in much the same way that Cliffjumper appeared to be before his untimely demise.

    It really depends on how he would die. If done right, I would be ok with it. However I don't think he will die in this episode. These character models cost too much for them to kill off each new character in the same episode that they're introduced in.

    I also still don't think Skyquake is dead. He could easily be in stasis, and come back at some point.

    Not very. If he does die I hope his corpse lands next to another one that looks like Windcharger.

    If he gets killed off I might have to give up on the show. Lots of things I've been liking with the show so far but a show that kills off new characters every time a new character shows up just isn't fun.

    Fingers crossed he breaks the short trend and I can get back to a long list of characters I'd like to see them try the Transformers Prime look on.
