    After Starscream shoots down the Xanthium, Sam asks Dutch and Simmons to track down Dylan with his phone. When Dutch hacks into Dylan's phone and triangulates his location to Chicago, Sam says he's going after him. Epps says he's coming too and that they're going to find Carly and take down Dylan.

    As they walk to Epps' car, Sam asks, "Why are you helping me?"
    Epps replies, "Because that asshole killed my friends too."


    So, who exactly was he referring to?

    EDIT: I meant who was the asshole :lol

    Probably some random human NEST soldiers, autobots or someone living in Chicago.

    The asshole was Dylan, who was involved in the plot to exile the autobots. It seemed to be him to give the signal to invade, to destroy the xanthium.

    I was confused by this the first time, but after 2-3 more viewings, it seemed that Epps was referring to Dylan.

    I took it that Laserbeak's assassinations reached even NASA personnel.

    Hence Epps looking for some payback.

    'That Asshole' = Starscream, because he just killed the autobots.
    'My Friends too' = Autobots, because he fought alongside them.

    Would have made more sense if he'd said 'That asshole JUST killed my friends too'

    I think that could be it also. As that scene doesn't exactly stand out right away in my mind, it's sort of hard to think of the context he was using it in.

    I actually thought at first he was referring to Sentinel Prime. I mean, SP completely wrecked the NEST base.

    I think it was a nice twist that Dylan was working for the Decepticons. Didn't see that coming.

    I am almost positive that he is talking about Dylan.
