Optimus!!!

Ohh....this looks interesting...it will be nice to see another Prime episode. I haven't seen one since the Singapore special. I am looking forward to this.
Megastar
I'm hoping for Ultra Magnus vs. Megatron and Arcee vs. Shockwave fights.
Logicfry
Prime I hope you die. You have been a stupid SOB this whole series good riddance.

Now that I say that you will probably live.
spiritprime
Goddamnit, Optimus! That's death No. 9001!
kaijuguy19
Optimus will likely be out of commision for a while at least seeing how Optimus never really dies in EVERY series he's in.
Shatterpoint
Well, Optimus certainly isn't dead. You don't put a spoiler like that in the promo.

He's dead. But it's obvious that he's going to come back towards the end of season 3 or the movie.
moreprimeland
Man, they really like messing with us. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Smokes...it's up to you....you better figure out something and quickly.

UM going to take on Darkmount...

Theory: Smokescreen sacrifices his own spark to fuse it with Optimus' and revives Optimus in his new body.

I'm basing that on the shot of Smokescreen on the highway in the clip. If you look around the edges, it fades to black unlike every other shot in the clip. That could indicate it is a memory or a flashback, possibly some sort of memorial flashback sequence if Smokescreen sacrifices himself to revive Optimus
LegendAntihero
Optimus wouldn't have needed to tell Smokescreen to carry on the fight without him if that's where the story was going.
Prime Jetscream
...Optimus dies again...
*sigh*
I hope we do see that new version of him.

Except smokescreen is nothing like Hotrod, by the end of the animated movie he had become a leader in his own right and so earned the matrix. Smokescreen has done no such thing.
Feralstorm
I like the little "clunk" noise as Optimus' eyes turn off.

So, who do you think the new guy in the episode description is going to be: Rodimus Prime (Smokescreen), Optimus Prime 2.0, Alpha Trion, Omega Supreme (Ultra Magnus' ship) or someone else entirely?

Alpha Trion sent Optimus Prime the relics for Optimus to use during a pivotal part of their war, and Smokescreen's the most powerful of them all, says A3, anyway

If Smokescreen isn't Rodimus Prime, perhaps he is Nexus Prime--Nexus Prime is familiar with Solus Prime's creations.
divinecomedy
Smokescreen should become the new Prime and HasTak should release a Voyager version of him fixing all the problems in his deluxe sized toy.

"long-standing fortress"

By the timeline of Transformers Prime as of episode 3 the fortress has only been there for approximately a week... maybe two if you push the time frame a lot...

Put simply; Its not a long-standing fortress... its been there very little time.

"unexpected attack of the vengeful Autobots"

From the sounds of the trailer Starscream is fully aware that the Autobots are coming to attack - "They couldn't hide forever" - unless they really think the Autobots would surrender... which would be silly (Though I honeslty wouldn't be surprised if the Autobots let themselves get captured so that they could get close to Darkmount before Ultra Magnus attacks as a distraction.

The description was referring to the new member of Team Prime: Ultra Magnus.

I believe one of two things will happen:

1. Smokescreen sacrifices himself for Optimus's longevity.

2. Smokescreen takes the matrix, uses the Forge to fix Optimus, and then returns the matrix.

Why are you spoiler tagging your predictions?

I wonder if it is Ultra Magnus--why not use his name, when he's already been in two episodes prior?

I think we're supposed to think it's Ultra Magnus, but in the end it won't be him--like G1, he's going to fail at leading in Optimus' absence. I remember Hot Rod saving the day.

That shot of Smokescreen on bended knee, head down and palms to the ground looks pretty primed to introduce a new character I only wonder if he'll be alone or with someone else...

Alpha Trion is my guess.
TF FOC Autobots
I think Smokescreen will become leader and than find a way to revive Optimus Prime

That would be a nice little not to G1, especially if Alpha rebuilds Optimus.

Hopefully, Smokes saves the day.

FFS, stop typing like this. THIS is annoying.

On topic -

I won't say "never", but it's doubtful the writers would have an Autobot sacrifice himself for Optimus. It would most likely be the other way around, if the situation called for it. They're not going to have someone else sacrifice for him, it's usually him sacrificing for everyone else.
BeeIsMyHero
I'm looking forward to Smokescreen and Ultra Magnus meeting for the first time. 'Cuz, I don't think Magnus is going to take kindly to Smokescreen being a Prime.
CodeXCDM
...let's see if they actually KILL PRIME.

Really... as much as I enjoy TFP... you know they 180ed would-be outcomes that were "bad" within an episode... sometimes even a commercial break!

Case in point: Season 2's teasing of "Decepticon Orion Pax."

Optimus will be back! He always comes back!

I think so too, and that's exactly what happened--the captain went down with the ship after making sure all souls were accounted for and away.

Wouldn't he just accept him? The Matrix bonds itself to whoever is the chosen one. When it chose Optimus, the Autobots fell in line.

Smoke screen, while a Cybertronian and an Autobot is also a relic (says Alpha Trion). Whatever the case, there's something special to him, both Optimus and Alpha Trion have said so. Optimus believes he's the next Prime in the long line of Primes--but what if he's misinterpreted the signs given him?

Should Optimus pass the Matrix on to Smokescreen, it should bond to him as it did Jack in season 2.

The Autobots follow whoever carries the Matrix of Leadership. Not doing so would be against protocol

Wait?! You thought Orion was going to stay a Decepticon forever
Exodus
Looking forward to this.

I was wondering why he is tagging his ideas as well.

Maybe the Optimus Prime is Smokescreen with Optimus armor, like Optimus with Jetfire armor in the movie, not actually prime himself.

Maybe he will bust out of the armor after they win the fight.
Ultramax Primus
I wonder if Smokescreen will sacrifice his Spark to repair Optimus. Or if Mangnus will use the forge and repair Prime. Either way I think this episode Prime will have his new body.

I don't think that's likely, as Optimus' bio is Optimus' story and the same is true for Smokescreen too.

And there's that bit about Alpha Trion telling Optimus that he sent him the most significant and powerful of all relics during season 2, the last two relics were the final Omega key and Smokescreen. Smokescreen's a closet bad @$$

I too, am looking forward for Smokes and UM to meet.

Possibly, UM might find it difficult to accept Smokes as a Prime but let's not jump to conclusions just yet.
SPLIT LIP
Man that shot of dead Prime really highlights the "failings" of his face design. He looks so goofy, like an internet memeface, with his sad eyebrows and D: expression. I've never overtly disliked the Prime designs, but their faces don't really have an appropriate range of emotions. Afterall, Megatron, when he's not looking just typical scowled-evilface, always looks so ridiculous whenever he has to widen his eyes or open his mouth wide.

Yeah, but Prime is much darker. This COULD be the series that breaks the rule. There's been so much permanent death already...

"He's got Starscream hear to sing around on his fingers for amusement..."

LOL.

"If it involves girl scout cookies... just watch out."

*raises brow*

*stains to hear optimus voice dude*

Umm... all this guy said was that Optimus was looking forward. Which could mean he's looking forward into a future with Smokey as a Prime.

So Smokescreen hasn't been a valuable member of Team Prime? What about all the work he's done with the Phase Shifter?...Got the Apex Armor from Starscream, obtained most of the Omega Keys by escaping from the Decepticon ship,...Alpha Trion must have thought highly of him, right?....I'm not saying that anybody should replace Optimus, not even Hot Rod, but come on....he's probably done as much, if not even more than Hot Rod over a period of episodes, not just an 1 1/2 hour movie....not to mention we didn't even know Hot Rod before the movie....
