    Have you ever watched a TV show in your life?

    At the first sign of a character getting as much as punched, everyone gets their panties in a twist and starts going "OMG, DID YOU SEE THAT? HE DEFINITELY DIES THIS EPISODE!"

    You're the same kind of people that are gobsmacked when a Marvel superhero comes back from the dead.


    And for the record, naming a thread after a huge episode plot point and writing 'Spoiler' next to it, is not how you contain spoilers.

    Good job.

    You'd think that with everyone eating up whatever TVTropes comes up with next, they'd begin to expect people coming close to, but never, dying.

    I don't do that to every show I watch

    It's just that the writers of Prime have shown to kill off characters at unexpected times which can have some people speculate.

    Well said. :) 

    I was going to make a topic like this last night, but didn't bother.

    People here seem really fascinated with characters dying (or they just want them dead), instead of the story. Plus you are right, since if a character is attacked, or is lying around...they scream "INSERT NAME HERE IS DEAD!"

    As for the "Shocker" at the end of the latest episode...they are not dead. Just like how people were saying "Wheeljack is going to die," and nothing happened, or "Bulkhead is going to die (in Loose Cannons)" and yet nothing happened.

    Just because a few characters actually do die, not EVERYONE is going to die.

    Also, with the large number of Mods on this site...I am shocked that these bullshit spoiler topics exist for more than a few minutes. How hard is it to monitor the Prime board for about an hour (during the show, then 30 minutes afterward) to keep jerk-offs from spoiling plot points on purpose.

    I totally agree with everyone here. the threads here are nothing more than wild speculations based on a few seconds worth of clips magnified by impatient, 12 year olds.

    sheesh.... grow up will ya? just wait for next week episode and let's just enjoy the show like everyone else. just relax and avoid being too emotionally tied up to it. there are much more better things to be all worked up than a tv show (not even for something as awesome as TFP!).

    my two cents:
    should there be any deaths in TFP, I doubt they would make it obvious.

    remember Breakdown's death? we didn't see that one coming in the promos, eh?

    Maybe they're from a dimension where everybody explodes when they get slapped.

    I agree with you UTF.

    Why are we so damn obsessed with charecters dying? Did anyone ever expect death when they were watching Beast Wars in the original run?

    Every time anyone dies in any Action TV show, its at an unexpected time. Did you expect the writers to put a big arrow over the guy at the beginning of the episode saying "==This guy dies in 14:12 minutes==>". That wouldnt make for very compelling story telling.

    Are we?

    I could say, that I want to be morally prepared for a death of a character, that I don't want to be dead, and reducing the feeling of dissapointment. But I wouldn't say that.

    For that matter, why doesn't My Little Pony have this problem?

    Pinkie Pie confirmed for dead next episode.

    No but it would make for a hilarious trolling moment from the production staff. After the WTF wore off, I'd be LOLing.

    That's what I do too. So if Arcee does die I won't be as upset.
