    Is the Mistress of Flame sitting on Alpha Trion\'s body? Also, is that a generic that Tracks is worried about, or someone we just can\'t see?

    She's kneeling beside it, not sitting on it.

    This is the first time it has really shown only HALF of a Matrix in Prime's chest.

    What's the spoiler though? Does somebody die? Optimus Prime? Windblade? Bumblebee? Kup?

    Which spoiler are you talking about exactly? Also Kup's already dead (again).

    There is no theoretical limit to the number of times they can resurrect and kill Kup. There's no reason they couldn't bring him back in Visionaries #5, just to kill him again here. I just don't know!

    He’s kinda just ashes now. There’s nothing left unless unless wheeljack perfects what he was doing earlier in the book.

    We’ve seen it a couple times.

    Windblade vol2 when he showed up on Caminus and in issue 6 of OP when he calmed down the junkion attack

    This is 5 pages of...really I cannot tell. It seems like hardly anything happens. Aileron's deep thoughts part 37, recaps of past events nobody needs to be reminded of, the titan transforms, then a smattering of characters saying things and 90% of those comments aren't even replied to by another character.

    Do we need MORE setup in this story? The whole thing is ending soon.

    That last panel is kind of a mess.

    It’s off panel so I guess we’ll found out this week!

    Are you really expecting someone to know?

    Well I see body parts there so we could always guess. Hope it’s not Dreadwing.

    From the bots we saw last issue, its either dreadwing, seaspray, or beachcomber.

    It could also just be a generic or anyone else who was in the building that we didn't see last issue.

    All the way back in Issue #4, the Matrix is shown to be halved in Prime’s chest as he and Aileron have a spark to spark conversation right before Pyra takes that another opportunity to put Optimus down, @Hadlen_Weltall

    It’s quite funny, since it’s sitting rather precariously in Prime’s chest, as opposed to locking to one side.

    The full preview for #18 is out now too. Everyone told me not to read it so of course I read it. It's great. I am happy with the way events are proceeding. But don't even open the page if you don't want the surprise spoiled.

    Trust me people, DO NOT OPEN THIS. Wait and read issue 17 to get the real experience.

    Yeah, I don't care about spoilers personally but that one is massive so don't touch the preview until you've read #17.

    Also, I guess I kinda owe someone a beer as they actually called that development a good while back and I thought they were out of their goddamn mind.
