    Kind of what the title says the Autobots never noticed that Sam was wearing this watch thing,
    in the comic book adaptation of the movie Sam later admits to Optimus what the Decepticons did and Optimus said that he realized something was off,
    all that didn't happen though in the movie so what is your take on it, was it just a mute point and never brought up or do you think Optimus thought they did somthing to Sam, etc.?

    It's implied that Optimus knew, which is why he didn't tell Sam of their plan.

    Actually, I think they did know. That's why Optimus said "There is no plan".

    The whole point was that Optimus knew something had to be up, so he acted normally. The "faking death" plan lets us know that he had to have known something wasn't right.

    Maybe all of Sam's creepy mannerisms and self-groping distracted them?

    Regardless, I think that was a plot point we could do without. It would have been far more interesting if the motivation for Sam's silence was simply Carly's safety. Suddenly we have a character moment where Sam has to test his allegiance to the Autobots versus his love for Carly. Besides, did the Decepticons ever get any information from the bug? It seemed like the only result of him wearing it was having a few moments of comic relief.

    As others have said in this thread: I have to agree.

    Optimus had planned on leaving, but he noticed something was wrong and the Wreckers had an idea to hide.

    It was obvious that Prime detected it because the camera zoomed in on his antenna ear things as if he were sensing it.
