    Ok, since i've last watched Dotm i keep thinking, why in the world are The Dreads chasing Sentinel if he was already on the Cons side? Did they think that still had to kill him because of all that time in stasis on the moon? Also, why in the world does Sentinel need to be protected from them anyway? Clearly that fight in Chicago proved he can put the hurt on any Both or Con.

    Sorry if im asking too many questions.

    maybe they were sent to recruit Sentinel, so he could meet with Megatron.

    For your first question: The Dreads chasing Sentinel was a misdirection ploy, to throw off the Autobot's guard and make them focus on The Dreads instead of Sentinel, thus giving him the chance to get them off-guard and run away before they retaliate [if you watch closely, you'll notice the Dreads attack caused NEST to split up to search for 'Cons, left Optimus behind on the road and made everyone not pay attention to Sentinel].

    For your second question: Theodore Roosevelt was probably more badass than the entire American army together, but they still felt like they needed to protect him: Regardless of his skill in battle, he is too important to be risked, regardless of the occasion.
    He's also been in Stasis for a while.

    Sentinel is heading to NEST to steal the pillars back. They have the Dreads intercept his group on the way to eliminate his autobot escort.

    Sentinel and Megatron had kept their alliance pretty quiet, so I wouldn't be surprised if only a small number of Decepticons knew Sentinel was on their side. And even if they did know, they could have just been putting on a show to keep the Autobots in the dark that much longer. Or maybe they didn't want Sentinel to have to reveal he had turned as soon as he was forced to when the Dreads were killed.

    At that point in the movie Sentinel hadn't done any fighting (I'm not counting waking up and jumping Optimus). The Autobots and humans may well have assumed he'd need help defending himself after spending so much time in "sleep mode." Besides, they acknowledged him as the key to everything the Decepticons had planned before they even knew he had allied with them, so even if the humans knew he was a great fighter it would still make sense to guard him as much as they could.

    He was left behind, since trucks are not that for highway outmaneuvers and high speed chases in crowded streets.

    2 more question. I heard Wheelie say it was a Decepticon trap. Its like he knew what the Cons were doing. Any explanations? Also if Wheelie and Brains knew, why not say something before its to late?
