    After watching the episode, do you think Prime would of shot Megatron? if it wasn't for Dreadwing and the rest of the Decepticons. This scene reminds me the one from a popular scene 25+ years ago when Megatron was begging Prime not to shoot and forgive him.

    The lines are similar,

    TF:TM
    Megatron: Please Optimus grab me mercy I beg of you

    TFP Crossfire
    Megatron: I would seem that I am unarmed at your mercy, so tell me Optimus do you intend to take me alive or end this fury now

    Of course he was going to shoot him. That's why he pointed a gun to his head and charged it up.

    I second this. Unless Prime was pulling a little prank.

    Yes. Part of the Unicron arc was him realizing that he needed to kill Megatron.

    You gotta admit that scene is similar the one from TF:TM and Dreadwing interfering is the same as when Hot Rod interfered

    Of course. He has to hesitate. If Optimus actually kills Megatron, a) he's no better than Megatron himself, and, b) the series is essentially over, unless Unicron decides to copy TF:TM even more and bring back Megatron as Galvatron.

    You see, I never got this.

    If he's doing it because he has to, he isn't stooping to his level. At all.

    Why not just use a spark extraction, and house the spark in stasis? aka Garrus-9.

    Otherwise, this makes Optimus the judge, jury, and executioner.

    I'm pretty sure this universe is like the Movies.

    Remove the spark, they die.

    There was a huge difference in these scenes. In TF:TM, Megatron's line was not pleading for mercy, it was specifically to buy time, knowing it would cause his Nemesis to pause. While in Crossfire, it was Megatron admitting defeat, and in fact he respects anyone who is capable of actually killing him.

    [ MEGATRON ]do not grieve, for soon, I shall be in control of Unicron.

    [ SOUNDWAVE leans forward as if to say something, then remembers he's Snake Eyes. DREADWING and BOMBSHELL watch, BOMBSHELL's arms in praying position. A VEHICON turned away from the monitor in surprise]

    [MEGATRON] Dreadwing... [grunts] I leave this to you, my first lieutenant
    I give you my fusion cannon, as it was given to me by a coliseum armorer once before.

    [ DREADWING ] But Megatron, I am just a seeker. I am incompatible with it.

    [ MEGATRON ] Neither was I, but I reintegrated my circuits. One day, a Deception will rise from our ranks, and bring the universe to order. He will wield the cannon, and use it to end the Autobots' darkest hour.

    [ MEGATRON rips his cannon off his arm and makes DREADWING try to catch it. DREADWING misses in a slo-mo shot, and SOUNDWAVE catches it. The cannon misfires as it touches SOUNDWAVE's arm and the shot kills the VEHICON]

    Yeah, if the spark is removed, the body can't survive. But at least Optimus will have a lovely shiny spark to put on his mantlepiece.

    Alternatively, the spark contains Megatron's mind, and he is forever trapped in it, doomed to an eternity of nothing. He has no mouth, and yet he must scream.

    I don't know about you, but I'd take a gun to the head over eternal solitary confinement.
