    Anyone else kinda like that instead of just killing him off, they're using his injury as some story development for him. While I was originally dissapointed that the writers didn't dare kill someone, I'm glad they didnt, as this could get interesting ^^

    I do like that. Still, it just gets tiring that Bulkhead is always the one who suffers the worst and yet he still has not joined The Well Of All Sparks. Shredded by Scraplets, all his brawls with Breakdown, the cave-in, the Tox-En and Hardshell....

    Yeah and his rival, who was just as strong looking is taken out by a fembot. Got to love logic in the TFP universe.

    I'm happy that he's not dead but instead disabled, and trying to cope with it. It'll be a more interesting and dramatic turn: he has to deal with being sidelined and possibly getting neglected by his friends (Miko especially?) and becoming useless - factors that might lead him to something desperate and risky, like teaming up with Smokescreen in his convalescent condition or something worse...

    There was an BW episode planned where Rattrap felt the same way and decided to go to Megatron, since he'd provide him with the gear to make him feel big again. Not saying Bulkhead may/should do that here, it's impossible; but it's going be interesting to see how desperate he will be to prove himself...

    Yes. I'm really interested with what will happen next as well. I think it was a great move from the writers.

    I'm hoping to see great character building from this.

    It made sense to me. Bulkhead and Breakdown strike me as fighters. People who enjoy fighting for the thrill and sport of it. Airachnid is a killer. Being a good killer means taking care of business so that there isn't much of a fight.

    Kinda like it? I love it. Much better than killing him off, killing him off would be a bad move from the beginning. If he was dead we would have people crying over him, big whoop, we saw that happen before in lots of TF shit and in this show too. Bitter crippled guy in the last episode and Miko taking care of him are both really sweet things and fun moments for the characters that I enjoy watching much more than I would enjoy people on the internet going THANK GOD THEY KILLED HIM I DECIDED HE NEEDED TO DIE SINCE I REPLIED "^THIS" TO A GUY ON A FORUM TAHT COMPLAINED ABOUT HIM BEING ALIVE.

    As in, I wouldn't enjoy that last part -at all-.

    I think it has potential, not really loving the whole wounded warrior thing they've got going just yet. Especially how Bulkhead came off as whiney instead of worried when Smokescreen came along (not that I blame him for feeling like his place is being encroached upon)

    But I do see it going in a pretty good direction. He'll probably try to prove that he's okay a few times which will lead to him not being okay and ending up in serious trouble, and then he'll overcome his injuries and do something extra badass! Idk. That's what I'm expecting.

    I glad he didn't miraculously recover in one episode. I don't know if I prefer this to him dying yet, however

    I'm just happy it didn't take one episode for him to recover. I think it's cool how Bulkhead feels like he's being replaced. Maybe all of this will finally lead up to Bulkhead for sure being killed off in the season finale.

    It is good to see Bulk though, start to get jealous over a new bot, cause of what he's already done from his first day on earth.

    Bulkhead is finally becoming interesting.

    I always had faith.

    Honestly it's given us a new perspective on how to do the big green lug. It seems to draw influence on the original concept of Bulkhead back in TFA or being a bitter war veteran.

    I expect this to happen next episode, if not the episode after that.

    The one thing I DON'T want to see is 'everything is back to normal' after all is done with. If Bulkhead ends this character arc with him being back the way he was before he got injured that would be terrible.

    I was hoping Bulkhead would be the new rhinox.
