    Do you think that girl and her mother survived Laserbeak's visit to the father?

    Anyway, it looks like Laserbeak's got some pedo in him, judging by the way he likes to fawn on his victims (The way he slobbers to Wang: "Jerry, you are my favourite..." and his coiling around him was very NIGHTMARE ON ELM STR-esque) and the fact of most of his victims are old childhood acquaintances instead of total strangers that he couldn't easily scare suggested that he'd "befriended" his contacts in their childhood (Voskhod and Gould, as the comics say) to ensure they toed the line; in fact the way he slipped into the little girl's house as her toy is a very suggestive move. I got to give kudos to MBay for reinventing Laserbeak in a very creepy manner.

    He's not a pedo. He's a merciless killer. And why the hell would he let the girl survive and have the chance to tell the police. She's deader than Jerry Wang.

    Laserbeak's (oft-forgotten) original Function was Interrogator... it's really just a natural progression of his (supposed) mindgames that he would play.

    ... but yeah. She dead.

    Well, chances are, he probably did leave the kid alive. The kid probably didn't rat him out, out of fear of reprisals...

    You never actually see Beaky kill the little girl and the mother, you know? His mission was to only kill the NASA dudes. He doesn't worry about witnesses, they would be too scared to even think about running to the authorities or they would fear that the law would dismiss everything as a joke.

    He's a cold-blooded murderer who's entire mission is to eradicate all witnesses to the Decepticon plan. That mom and kid became witnesses when he went after the husband. I'll leave you to fill in the blanks.

    I do not think there is a sexual aspect to his motivations, nor do I think such a subtext exists in the film. I think you're seeing things that aren't there, QLR.

    But the little Ironhide girl invited Beaky to a tea party... Laserbeak loves tea parties!

    she may have survived, I remember bay said on the Armageddon commentary, the 2 rules from many directors, 1 never kill kids 2 never kill dogs/animals. So most likely the girl some how survived

    Considering Laserbeak's killing streak, did the little girl (and her mother) survive?

    No. Nope. Not one bit. Not at all. Nein.

    And my personal favorite, guy-falling-off-a-cliff:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......

    The rule is to never kill kids ONSCREEN. Implied death is different.

    This is acutally a fairly resonable topic. Did Laserbeak kill the little girl? We don't know for sure. But for some reason I fear he may have.

    I thought it was well-established that Laserbeak is a monster who enjoys killing. He revels in the fear of his victims as he prepares to kill them.

    That poor family never had a chance. He would kill them all out of sheer bloodlust or boredom, never mind what his mission required.

    little girl: Please let me out, I won't tell anyone!
    Laserbeak: It puts the lotion on it's skin or it gets the hose again! Speaking of hose, where
    the hell is Hot Spot?

    Because you have an ounce of common sense.

    There is no reason to think he wouldn't kill her. He's entirely remorseless, enjoys killing, and his mission was to tie up loose ends. Honestly, the scientist father was less of a loose end than the mother and daughter being witnesses to the murder of the father.

    She's dead, Jim.

    He finished killing her parents, then finished their conversation.

    Laserbeak killed a vulture. Nuff said.
    Bay broke that rule, there's no reason he wouldn't brake the second.
    Plus, the vulture was killed ONSCREEN. Assuming he did kill the daughter, that was offscreen anyway, so technically he didn't brake the rule.
