    I think we can all agree that the newest episode was not perfect. I for one enjoyed it though. But what were you expecting to see in this episode? A extra scene? A longer story-arc? Or something else?

    NOTE: This thread not meant to be hateful torwards the episode or people who like it, it is to point out what you were expecting in this episode.

    NOTE 2: Please stay on topic and refrain from any arguments.

    EDIT: Reworded text better.

    Dude, shut up about killing Arcee. You're coming off as a douche.

    The episode was fine.

    But you said in the other thread that there were no cons? I'm confused.

    I was hoping for a Shockwave mention.

    Arcee cannot be killed just like that in this moment,let's just hope that all the rest of the charcters of Autobots will stay on as it is as of now.

    Honestly? I expected to be dissapointed. Prime has been nothing but a tease, presenting good ideas and concepts and tossing them away in favour of the status quo. I hoped Optimus would stay Pax and the season would revolve around him regaining/rebuilding his memories, but sadly the creators have a crippling fear against anything different.

    I was in hurry to type it so I didn't have time to type the cons. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the episode. Although I want to hear what people were expecting not stating out flaws.

    I agree & no one of the main characters died and I want it to stay that way.

    I understand your frustration, but honestly, where did you want them to go with that storyline? He would've grown to be Optimus Prime... and then what? We'd... have Optimus Prime again. Redundancy. Great.

    There are other plots out there. Project Iacon, Starscream, Project Chimera, the (supposed) load of new characters. I'd prefer those be given more screen time.

    Plus, we kind of did get Orion's evolution into Optimus, and it felt really natural. It happened fast, but it gave the episode a great conclusion.

    See, I get that. But again, that's wasted time compared to the rest of the story arcs the show could explore. I too would've liked to see Orion become Optimus, to grow and mature into the hardass leader, but that's better befitting a prequel series/flashback episode. I want to get this ball rolling.

    That last bit didn't sound weird, did it?

    The quick disassembly of the insecticon was my only issue. I hate seeing cool characters die off too quickly like skyquake and Cliffjumper.

    No, you're fine Stygimoloch.

    I would have liked Orion to still be there inside Optimus a little more prevalent. Make Optimus take a look at himself and what he was. Slip a little Orion into things once in a while...

    Wait that sounded wrong.

    I agree, with that part, I was hoping that the Insecticon and scraplets would follow Arcee & jack through the space bridge to team up with Megatron but I guess not.

    But the rest of the show wasn't bad.

    Yes I'll admit I regret typing that. Oh well, I won't make that mistake again.

    Yeah, I kinda regret making this thread to be honest. I'll get one of the mods to lock it.
