    This is just a speculation, so don't go jumping the gun just yet. It may contain spoilers, so I suggest you leave this thread right now before you're murdered in your sleep... kidding. ;P

    Anyways, this what I think the reason for Wheeljack's return and his hunting for Dreadwing:

    Considering how he's returned without the Wreckers (maybe) and that Dreadwing is here on Earth, I would suspect that he wants to avenge them for what Dreadwing did to them. This is just a hunch, but it would also explain why Wheeljack clashes with Optimus Prime according to the title description a while back.

    Again, please don't go all gung-ho on me. I'm just guessing.

    It's possible, and seems probable.

    Only time will tell, though.

    Okay, seriously, what's with all this talk about Bulkhead getting killed this season? Yes, the writers did say that a main character WAS going to get killed off in season 2, but we don't know WHO yet. If you mean the bomb strapped to Bulky in the preview, then my guess as to what happens there is that he probably rips it off at the last second, throws it into the air, it explodes, and he'll be okay.

    If he actually does die off in this season though...well, I'll definitely be having fried crow with a side of mashed taters.

    I'm alright with Bulkhead dying, if only because I'd rather it be him than someone else (aside from Bumblebee, who I'd love to see die but I know he likely won't). Plus it'd cause Miko to mature

    No, Wheeljack took the other Wreckers' slices of cake, and they got mad and wouldn't come to Earth with him.

    If an Autobot dies it is undoubtedly going to be Bulkhead. He's a fairly new character to the franchise, and Hasbro likes to stick with established names and looks. Arcee and Bumblebee won't die, Ratchet's death wouldn't really have much of an impact just yet, and Prime's not going anywhere right now. Wheeljack isn't a full cast member yet either, so it would be pointless to kill him off.

    We in fandom tend to see what isn't there and make more out of what is there than we should, so in this case I think the blurb about OP and Wheeljack is more than likely misdirection than some major betrayal on the part of the character.

    Not sure what's brought him back to earth, but probably has a lot to do with his feelings of comradrie with Bulkhead, a certain protectiveness towards his fellow Autobots, and knowing how outnumbered they are on earth- wanting to help where/when he can. Dreadwing being involved is a complete and welcome mystery and how he ties in with Wheeljack will be a welcome 30 min of revelation!

    Well if Bulkhead doesn't die, he sure is gonna be taken out of the fight.
