    I know this is small sour grapes, but was anyone else urked a little about season 2's ending. I mean the bots are all just standing around talking when a few moments ago they just found out the head of their Intel is a decepticon. They should have been frantically trying to contact Cybertron. Forget Sari. I wouldn't have cared if she turned into a 30 yr old hooker, never mind a robot. I would be trying to reach UM ASAP. I did luv the ep still just a small complaint.

    They were in the middle of the countryside recovering from a battle they just had a couple of minutes ago. How the heck are they supposed to just contact Cybertron straight away?

    I thinnk Blurr should have had more of a reaction.
    After all, Longarm was his boss.

    I understand your point but, for them to show the autobots rushing back to HQ would've added more time to the episode. And they weren't going to add anything more to the two 1/2 hour episodes.

    Maybe they don't have a tachyon transmittor thing, though honestly it was just outright stupid of Shockwave to reveal himself in the first place. He himself wasn't sure if the space bridge would work!

    Eh, it was good for dramatic effect. I sorta get what the original poster is saying, though- wouldn't that be some high-priority info?

    He got dumped into the space bridge with Thundercracker and Skywarp to wait for a convenient Season 3 plot device to restore them

    This guy's the head of cybertron intel, a spy, and, probably, an EXCELLENT spin doctor. With the fact that everyone at Cybertron, except magnus, it seems, hates Prime's crew and Longarm's clout, I doubt anyone'd believe them IF they dropped everything they were doing to contact cybertron.

    Bingo. Shockwave wasn't too logical there. I agree with that. I would have liked Shockwave to remain hidden for season 3. What's his role going to be now?

    I would agree with Pete there, but Shockwave really didn't have to do that.

    Longarm Prime, Is Prime of communications networks. Sentinel is Prime of the Elite Guard, therefore he's not Blurr's boss

    Longarm Prime is head of Cybertron Intelligence. Blurr works for Cybertron Intelligence and was commissioned by the Elite Guard. Pay attention.

    It's still possible. Blurr's made visual confirmation and he is in the Elite Guard, Longarm holds the Prime rank but there's reason Blurr's in the Guard, he's trusted to be the best at his job. A direct report to Ultra Magnus and Shockwave would be busted, he just has to get back from wherever in space he got dumped.

    True, but it wouldbe very logical to assume that since the bots were in the hands of Megatron, they weren't going to be functioning for much longer.

    Agreed, everybody underestimates prime's crew. Shockwave was just trying to ruin bb's day right before he figured megatron would kill him
