This episode primarily focuses on Arcee and her two deceased past partners, Tailgate and Cliffjumper, but Starscream also has a huge role in this one too, and are I say Airachnid, as well? I’m wondering if Airachnid and Starscream have teamed up, unbeknownst to the audience and everyone else. When you get down to it, these two were made for each other. I began thinking about this after Airachnid divulged to Starscream that she knew of the events that took place in the minds—surely, Megatron did not tell her about that, I mean, why would he? Obviously, Soundwave wouldn’t have shared such info with her, so either she was there or she accessed some files and found out on her own. Being a Decepticon before now, has taught her to always watch your back as well as whom she needs to keep an eye, Soundwave being at the top of that list. What are the chances that she and Starscream planned the whole event that lead to his secession from the Decepticons? He couldn’t just leave, he needed a plausible exit, and he got it. The episode ends with the show’s opening, a recorded message he did with Soundwave, which is played just before he frees himself from his Cybertronian cuffs, smiles sinisterly and flies off into the sunset. And Airachnid, though gets a mouthful, survives the ordeal unscathed.
