    Was anybody else shocked by the Insecticon Hive that Airachnid discovered underground at the last 5 minutes of "Crossfire"? :jawdropper: 

    I predict that they will play a very major role in the 2nd season finale!

    Think about it: A massive swarm of Insecticons under Airachnid's command ravaging the Earth, like the The 8th plague (of locusts) of Egypt!

    That would make for a great 2 or 3-part finale for the 2nd Season! :thumb 

    But for now, let's ask ourselves:

    How the devil did they reach Earth or divide/multiply for that matter? :confused:

    Think you should [ spoiler ] that title for just a little bit longer...lots of folks have to wait for uploads to watch the ep.

    That said, I don't think she FOUND them...as much as has been keeping them hidden...for the opportune time to activate them. She'll decide when that will be.
    As for how did THEY get here?? Same as everything else from Cybertron, they were sent here...in this case, probably what was on her ship, b4 it was destroyed.

    She acted suprised when she found them, so I doubt she knew they were there.

    Why are people flipping out about "SPOILERZ!!!!" on the thread about "We know who dies" but not on this one when the spoiler is IN THE TITLE?

    This. If that's not a clear sign of Shockwave's presecne and forshadowing I don't know what is...

    I mean Shockwave did made studys of Prehistoric Earth in FOC so he may have planted some eggs in there as well to prepare his conquest of Earth.

    If that's true then the Insecticons will only obay Shockwave's commands muc to Airachnid's dismay.

    Probably because the death of any established Transformer character is far more juicy! :inquisiti

    It seems that being the creator of the Insecticons is part of Shockwave's TFP Bible bio.

    If he shows up I'm sure they will connect it to him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Shockwave makes his debut in the first part of the Season Two finale to show his power over the Insecticons, among other pieces of a big plan. That, and I think it'd be cool if it also involved the Forge of Solus Prime and the remaining Project Iacon files in some way - seeing how the first season's bookend plot element was Dark Energon.

    Shockwave would be great to SEE. I stress see, because, well, Seaspray, and all those other Wreckers...
    Plus, the 'cons could use some 'replacement' firepower

    The Insecticon & Shockwave connection is pure speculation - albeit cool.

    It would be rather crazy for any 'Con to engineer bots who couldn't be controlled. Vehicon's are loyal to Megatron's cause. Insecticon's seem more in line with the techno-organic theme that the T-Cog discussions started.

    That final scene creeped me out! :eek:  If one of those things was hard for Megatron to take down, how are the Bots and Cons going to handle hundreds?

    I think this is going to shape up to be a Soundwave vs. Airachnid storyarc. Someone in another thread mentioned Airachnid controlling the Insecticon using sound, and they posited that Soundwave would be required to overcome her control over the "army". Sounds plausible to me.

    I find Airachnid really tedious, so I'm not looking forward to the "queen bee" role that will inevitably come in the near future. But if Soundwave is integral to her defeat then I'm ready and willing to watch.
