    what do you think it'll be?

    Season 1
    Autobot Agenda-fight on Earth, protect the Allspark, stop Megatron from coming back
    Decepticon Agenda-aquire the Allspark, resurrect Megatron, take over galaxy

    Season 2
    Autobot Agenda-look for Allspark Fragments, defend Earth from whatever the Decepticons are doing
    Decepticon Agenda-Look for Allspark Fragments, Slag the Autobots, get to Cybertron through spacebridge technology

    Season 3
    Autobot Agenda-fight Decepticons?
    Decepticon Agenda-find Megatron again? Continue to slag Autobots?


    each Season seems to have an overall storyarch so far (rebuild Megatron, get off Earth) so what do you think it could be for Season 3?

    The cons are going to go all out, so expect whoop ass

    Im guessing the Autobots are out to stop them. Im expecting a few twists in this series though. Maybe if the story arch is big enough it will be spread over 2 seasons.

    I think the whole "let's rebuild Megatron" angle has been beaten into the ground. Expect a whole new story.

    Optimus Prime's crew will be arrested and brought back to cybertron by Military Police officer Warpath to stand trial facing charges placed by Longarm Prime in an attempt to discredit them so that their accusations against him are undermined. I believe said trial will carry over a few episodes and will via flashback deal with how Optimus Prime's crew are all malcontents(well thats the way Longarm Prime will paint them), this is how we will see exactly why Optimus and Prowl are part of a space bridge repair crew.

    I believe Optimus Prime was put on the spacebridge repair crew because of what happened with Elita-1 and Sentinel Prime's story of what happened (which painted Optimus as a save-my-own-hide type of bot).

    Bumblebee and Bulkhead we know were part of it because they flunked out of the Elite Guard training program.

    It would be nice to see Prowl's backstory as to why.

    From what I've gathered watching the series, I think Ratchet was on it because he "retired" ... didn't want to be part of the medical side of things after the Arcee incident.

    That's what I always thought, but then you get all these people making up all these other theories for why he was there...

    Its not that the events depicted in Along came a spider arent the reason its just that I believe the important part of that story as it concerns why Optimus is where he is was what occured when Sentinel and Optimus returned from that mission we saw what happened from Optimus Prime's perspective and what he did didnt really seem to warrant what happened it would be nice to see the 'official' retellig of those events.

    He got someone killed on an off-limits planet.
    I'm pretty sure they'd boot you for that.

    I dont recall that happening, I recall Elita and Sentinel exherting peer pressure to get Optimus to land on a off limits planet something he didnt want to do. I recall Optimus dragging a stasis locked Sentinel's but out of the fire and I remember him making the tough call of not putting himself and Sentinel at risk to go back and grab Elita an act that was from Optimus' assesment of the situation too much of a risk with too little chance of payoff.

    So what I saying is that the way it was reported to Autobot command must have deviated from what actually happened. There have already been allusions to Sentinel selling Optimus down the river for his own benefit I would just like to see what the actual fallout from that mission was.

    maybe the Autobot High Council is also a jury? Congress and the Supreme court rolled into one

    I'm betting on a sub-plot where Swindle becomes a drug-leader, which leads "Crack Patroller" Skram, to chase him in a fight to the finish!

    Really? I saw it as more of "Get revenge on the autobots that "killed" Megatron". "Resurrecting Megatron" was really more of Lugnut's goal.

    EDIT: Sorry, I messed up the quote thing.

    Sentinel was online, and pissed. Presumably, Optimus was honest about his actions, and Sentinel manipulated that to his advantage and Optimus' detriment.

    I really think it's best left unsaid.

    Story arc for S3?
    Starscream, fuelled by the Allspark, goes to Cybertron, conquers it, traps all the sparks, then floats around as a disembodied head until the Autobot team arrives, whereupon the 5-bot team proceeds to somehow disrupt his planet-wide domination and defeat his limitless legions of soldiers.

    I'm thinking the main idea of this season will be the ever growing war, and new resources, and 'tools'. Gestalt tech being a big factor maybe. Prowl's backstory I expect covered too. Other than that, not sure other than further diving into sari's potential and past. Probably even setting her up for her own spin off eventually, or maybe a move in the direction of human's trying to find ways to protect themselves from decepticons and not rely so heavily on autobots saving them.

    Two more dinobots is a must too. (at least two to round out the G1 nods, but I would not be adverse to 3. =D )
