Destroying the Nemesis would be the best thing that's happened on the show, because it would actually change the status quo. The Decepticons wouldn't be able to just bridge away after a defeat, and they'd actually need to use the disguise aspect of alternate modes instead of just bridging in, stealing something, and bridging out.

The Cons should check to see if River Tam is hiding in the Nemesis .

I highly doubt this is going to be what anyone expects. Certainly not Trypticon.
It's a blog about video games. Need I say more?
Visit the Kingdom of Evan Topic here. Apologies, we're on temporary hiatus!
Read TF2: Aftershock and TF3: Ex Machina. They're pretty good.

And that Vehicon, best voice for a Vehicon ever.
This show should really develop a few of the Vehicons and have them (through sheer dumb luck) survive each Autobot battle, like henchmen #21 and #24 in Venture Bros.

I meant destroying the ship's mind/Trypticon, as in the personality. And I am quite sure that's what's gonna happen, after I read the episode synopsis and saw it mention how the kids (really?) are the key to stopping the ship. My guess is, Raf'll pull out some mad hacker skills and stop the ship.

But I agree, that'd be a good change of the status quo. The Cons could not roam free if they were grounded - a huge convoy of identical black-purple cars would be quite obvious. (Then again, this is the same show where techno-terrorists travel in bright metallic blue uniform vehicles...)

I'm really really hoping they are leaving bread crumbs, a spark extractor here, a forge hammer there, airachind somewhere else. So it all comes together at the end (well one can hope can't they!)

Really, don't mention Transformers Prime and pacing in the same sentence, please. Just compare the season endings in Young Justice and Prime to see what a proper structured season-arching plot is.
Was I TALKING about a season-long plot arc? No, I said "pacing out of the big events" within a set 26 episodes, not a singular 26-episode story. Intro mini-series/status quo set-up -> important new plot element introduced at end of 1st quarter/start of 2nd -> mid-season shake-up event -> character plots and threats from first half recur and are built upon in 3rd quarter -> big finale event for 4th quarter. It's basic shit, and Prime followed it in all the right ways, both for its first season, and for its second thus far. For Trypticon to randomly come stomping in dino-mode right now, in the middle of the second quarter, defies that. If he's ever going to transform, that's season-ender shit that's being seeded now.

(Not, as I said, that I wouldn't be fine with being proven wrong on this.)

Ok, thanks for sharing. If the ship is who you guys claim to be then I gotta ask: why and how Megatron is unaware of it? I guess its only matter of hours to find out.

If it's impossible for the ship to become sentient then that excludes it from being Trypticon.
