    I was just checking out the TFwiki and it says that in episode 20: Partners

    "The team is surprised to learn that Starscream wants to become an Autobot."

    I didn't see this discussed anywhere but if this is old news I'm sorry for opening a thread about it :) 

    I don't think this will be "for real" but at least it's going to be an interesting episode!

    I wonder is that going to be like Transformers:Armada when Starscream joined the Autobots?

    While that's possible, I'd still put my energon on it being a ploy to screw over both Optimus & Megatron in the end. Like, I hate to preach the obvious & all, but you know.

    Yeah, Starscream's been far too much of an evil dick for this to be a genuine shot at redeeming the character. Still, if they keep it up for a few episodes it could be an epic plot twist.

    You know I was Armada Screamer was homaged more... he's a really good character and one of the best they've ever created. Design was awesome too. This could be really interesting if done right.

    It worked great for Armada Starscream. He was a great character and it actually made sense given the setup for the whole thing...

    Prime Starscream, on the other hand, is rotten to the core. He MURDERED Cliffjumper, for crying out loud. He tortured Fowler. No... it's a ploy.


    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't mean to insinuate that Prime Starscream isn't a great character. He is.

    I'm more interested in how the Autobots will react; Starscreams going to be a very interesting litmus test for how moral and idealistic this group of bots are.

    Interesting.

    Why do I get the feeling this is only to further his plans to overthrow Megatron. Still I doubt it will last long.

    This will either be a really good episode or a really bad episode.....

    I think it will work well since this Starscream is the most perfect portrayed Starscream ever!

    I think it would be very interesting if done right. I really liked Armada Starscream. So I think it would be interesting. What I especially would like to see would be how the autobots, especially Prime could influence Starscream.

    I also like the possibility of an antihero amongst the autobots. Something to put out a conflicting point of view and keep the bots on their toes. Something like a Prime version of Dinobot.

    It's not really a spoiler considering it's all that's been revealed about the episode Partners.

    Anyways, I don't think anyone was expecting Screamer to be one of the faction-switchers.
