I'm sure this has been asked. If it's clarified in the novel please inform. How does Bumblebee suddenly have the ability to speak? Something that I thought that would have gave Makaela some validity as a character was if she was actually the one that fixed him. That could have been fantastic! That would have shown that as much as Ratchet had tried she actually could do it. It would have made all of the knowledge she had about mechanics actually mean something in a way that Sparkplug had when he would repair the bots. What do you guys know and/or think?
