    ***SPOILERS FOR TUNNEL VISION***




    In Tunnel Vision, Knock Out gets banged up quite a bit throughout the episode. At the end, he has serious cosmetic damage to his body and face. In his last moment on screen, he seems to lose it when he drives off missing one tire.

    I think that when he comes back, he's going to not be all there in the head. He'll probably still have some scars from this episode and it will really effect his mind.

    What does everyone else think? Will this incident change him or will he be back to his old self in the next episode?

    Knock Out's what we call a "flat character." No, I don't believe he'll change at all.

    Be kickass if Megatron denied him repairs, however. Knowing Megatron, it's what he'd do.

    If he slowly starts becoming insane and turning into a mad scientist doctor, I would dig that.

    Becoming the dean of Vehiconic Medical College, stealing the formula for Synthen from Ratchet, and getting his head chopped off by a robo-shovel?

    I'd dig that.

    I'd love him to go insane. Slowly throughout the series. It'd make a good story arc, driven to insanity and nightmares.

    Did he lose a tire? didn't see that. His toy character bio does say he has a tendency to ruin his patients. After losing his assistant and his finish, maybe he'll be less concerned with the results of his procedures.

    Or maybe he'll just have a cry.

    I just want to believe, he is pragmatic enough, not to get killed because of this accident.
    But it would be nice, if he stops just stinging Autobots and get to killing them.

    It was inexcusably by writters not to kill any Autobot, while they were out of order.

    Possibly, but Megatron needs to promote his members sometimes, - like supposed races. What if valuable doctor can without Megatron?
    I wonder: can he?

    How exactly do you keep your team's medic from repairing himself?
    He's the medic, repair and modification is what he does.

    I do not think he will go off the rails (Badum-tish) but he has certainly
    been shown to be the grudging sort.

    Also something I took note of; The more nervous he gets the more
    "flamboyant" he gets. I think it is a defense mechanism he is hung
    up on when he get's nervous. I've seen real people get very ahem
    "Diva-esque" when they feel threatened in someway.

    Look, if they decide to kill off Knock Out, I'll be done with this show.

    Unless they replace him with Flatline.

    Knockout's death would be pretty amazing, if only to watch the massive fangirl strokes.

    I think Knock Out really needs a Female Partner that is also a medic.
