    Arcee takes Jack along on a seemingly routine mission but when her nemesis Airachnid turns up, Jack becomes a liability she needs to protect.​



    I know this is kind of early to have a talkback about an epiosde that might air hours from now. But hey it's my 6000th post and there's no rule on having a talkback for an episode that will not air hours from now.

    Anyway, looking forward to this episode since it's Arcee "centric" and has a Con voiced by Gina Torres.

    The episode airs tommorow at 8 or so.


    But the episode looks epic.

    This is probably a long shot, but a thought occurred to me just recently about what Airachnid and Arcee's relationship could be.

    What if instead of Airachnid being an old friend who turned bad, what if it's actually Arcee who was the one who changed sides? What if Arcee use to be a bad girl?

    Complete BS speculation. But still, what if?

    @Paxtin

    Would explain why she's so bad ass and showed little emotion when blowing those humans to smithereens (Convoy). Also she seems alot more Decepticon like than anyof them. I hope that makes sense.

    This would be so painfully awesome.

    And it's not outside the realm of possibility. She's definitely one of the most violent and aggressive of the bots, and she seems to always have the various autobot rules on her mind, like she has to constantly remind herself on the proper codes of conduct her new side expects of her.

    That would be a completely awesome concept/twist.

    Or, shocking thought, they're totally unrelated, Airachnid is just batcrap insane and has the bitchy hots on for Arcee.

    Check out one of the preview pics that were recently released:

    Their head designs are almost identical. No two male TFs share a head design (excluding the Vehicons), so it's unlikely that it's a basic head shape for fembots. My thought is that they're sisters, hence the similarity.

    That would make for some interesting character development. Guess we gotta wait and see.

    I speculate Airachnid's toy is going to be a bitch to stand up.

    I'd imagine she'd stand very easy, having 6 thin spider legs AND 2 regular legs.

    Well, Optimus does have a fatherly relationship with Arcee; what I'm getting at is less 'sister', more 'mother'.

    I think Arachnid look more like Starscream than Arcee.

    Blackarachnia wasn't a helicopter nor a ... Lockdown version of a zoo.

    She turns into a helicopter? Didn't know that, but it still seems weird. Why not reinvent Blackarachnia?

    I could care less what she's called. I find it more curious that they already have a name for a female, spider-like baddie and instead, they went with another name.

    Whatever. I'm still interested :D

    Why is everyone calling her Arachnid instead of Blackarachnia? Arachnid is a real thing that can't be Trade Marked where as Blackarachnia is a fully Trade Marked name that Hasbro will no doubt be reusing.

    Because EVERYTHING we've seen calls her Airachnid, and because we don't need trademark for in-show character names.

    Just look at how we got RATCHET, not AUTOBOT RATCHET everytime somebody says his name.
