I think they confirmed early in the series that Soundwave CAN talk. He just doesn't.

Calling it now, Ratchet jumps to the Decepticons because he wants Cybertron resurrected.

This would be astoundingly out of character, non?

So Shockwave will use synthetic Energon to recreate the Omega Lock. I guess the Forge wasn't the last hope for Cybertron after all! Hur Durr.

If it means he gets more screen time, I'd love to see that. So far he hasn't done much this season. Come on Prime writers. Give us some tension and suspense for this last story arc!

Would it? I'm not sure, given his reaction to Optimus blowing up the Omega Lock.

I agree that Ratchet has made it clear he feels a major sting due to the omega lock being destroyed, but I do not agree that he'd betray the Autobots simply to see Cybertron restored. After all, at what cost? Yes you've restored the planet, but you've also lost your 'soul', if you will, in the process. Also, I would imagine the writers would have given us some pretty clear hints along the way that this was coming, and Ratchet has been very much a background character this season. I just don't see this happening AT ALL.

soundwave probably lets them capture him to get info. hard to say on ratchet, but they did say someone would switch sides. or ratchet and the decepticons are working together to perfect syn-energon somehow.

Giving up objectives to save one's "soul" or sacrificing everything for one individual is what has led to this mess, time and again. It's why Optimus spared Megatron for what was an obvious deciet, it's what destroyed the Omega Lock, and it's what led to the Forge of Solus Prime running out of power.

I'm not sure if the show would be willing to depict it, but Optimus very much has to learn a lesson about doing what is best for his people rather than only what is best for his immediate friends, and that being unwilling to stop playing hero and make true sacrifices (giving up your life not counting 'cause you're not there to suffer the fallout) is the only thing that will save his species. If the show's willing to show it, it would absolutely be the right thing for Ratchet or Optimus to offer to work with Megatron, ignoring the political consquences, in order to restore Cybertron.
Duwian
This just got really good... Optimus vs Predaking will be intense.
Also, I would love to see Cybertron alive again. As a way to end the series. Pumped for Friday!
Stardust262
Yeah, looks like Ratchet will betray them.
SmokeyPrime
Huh, and I was liking Season 3 again. Yeah I know, I might wind up liking this last arc but I doubt it. It's weak that the final season finale is going to be, basically, the same as the previous season finale.

He has been a backround charecter, sure, but they can't focus on everyone, because their time is so limited. I'm not saying he will fight the Autobots or something, or even really get along with the Decepticons, but helping them to restore Cybertron, because it's quite clear the Autobot's don't have any plans of doing it. And wouldn't it be really pointless t odo a episode with Megatron "appealing" to Ratchet, only for it to not lead anywhere?
TK458
As much as I do not like saying it... I believe Ratchet could possibly desert to the Con side. It's obvious they're on the losing side of a war.

The Autobots have ways of making him talk.
Rumblestorm
Didn't they say he was gonna talk in the future?
Master Zarak
I don't think Ratchet will flat-out switch sides. He'll likely pass on some intel to the 'cons in achieving this one particular objective. Whatever the outcome, he'll remain an Autobot, albeit with perhaps with a guilty conscience once Prime gives him a good talking-to.
Zabilac
Maybe Ratchet will pretend to go join the Decepticons, but drop clues and hints at what what they're doing to the Autobots?
Autovolt 127
The old plan is restoring Cybertron again, and it's without the Forge of Solus Prime. Neat.

Agreed. I mean if Ratchet does join it'll likely be blackmail by Megatron for if Ratchet helps him with the plan Megatron won't kill his friends.
Tekkaman Blade
please let Welker voice Soundwave, then we just need Bumblebee's voice box fixed and every one will have talked. I always found the lack of voices a waste of those two characters.

Yeah, it looks like Ratchet is making some sort of detour whether intention or not, we'll find out Friday. Also, WJ made a comment, "someone knew we were coming" and he's looking at Ratchet.

So that's Megatron's old plan.

Man, this episode might be pretty good.

Thanks for sharing.

Glad to see, that the Omega Lock isn't a dead subject.

He said doesn't not can't, and you know what? He's right, Soundwave doesn't talk--he took a vow a silence. Unless he brakes that vow, I don't suspect he'll say much of anything.

I've been wondering this very thing. I've been wondering if Soundwave sets himself up to be captured so that he may be able to transport himself and Ratchet away via Space Bridge once the opportunity arises, but one question keeps me from believing this to be the case: what does Ratchet know of rebuilding the Omega Lock? He's a doctor, not an engineer. Wouldn't Bulkhead be a better candidate?

but bulkhead did not build the omega lock plus he was mentioned to be a construction worker not an engineer and yes there is a difference.

Construction worker or engineer, either would be better than a doctor, no?

Rebuilding the Omega Lock isn't Megatron's old plan--the Omega Lock was introduced last season

Megatron's old plan is the restoration of Cybertron!

The Autobots and Decepticions' war depleted Cybertron of its resources (namely Energon, as seen in FOC) which rendered the world uninhabitable.

In the episode entitled Out of the Past, which took place well before the series began, showed us two things: Starscream bringing a fresh shipment of excavated Energon to Cybertron, which seemed to be a regular thing of his at the time and Shockwave finalizing the construction of a Space Bridge on Cybertron, which I assume now was meant to hasten the delivery of Energon shipments--Starscream and company had already had a Space Bridge just outside's Earth's orbit ready to go.

Season two's finale told us that Cybertron's savior, would be able to influence generations to come as well as rule Cybertron, which is what Megatron was wanted to do since he challenged Cybertron's former leadership.

While the Autobots may have been few and beaten, they still existed. More importantly, Optimus existed, and he had proven to be resilient and quite frankly, Megatron's equal, and so long as he lives, Optimus never allow Megatron to succeed.

Seeing how the War for Cybertron ended in an unfavorable stalemate, might this be the reason why Megatron traveled the universe in search of his forces?

He didn't find the army he was looking for, but a big hulking slab of Dark Energon, which allowed him to do what he had planed to do with his forces anyway, which (as lame as it was) was to overwhelm the Autobots with undead army, the Terrorcons.

Anyway, Megatron's plan from long ago, was the restoration of Cybertron, not the Omega Lock

Aside from the various new twists in story and newly added mythology, Transformers Prime is still following the original outline of the G1 TV series.

Season 3 ended with the Return of Optimus Prime and the return of Cybertron's Golden Age--looks like everything is on course to finish in a similar fashion

Bumblebee may not be Goldbug, but he did get a new look this season and Smokescreen may not have become Rodimus Prime, but his color change was the rebirth of a more responsible Smokescreen, which isn't unlike Hot Rod, who Smokescreen's character resembles.

If all goes well, this series' finale could turnout to be a great jumping point for the next series--season 4 of G1 was short lived and showed the Decepticons getting their chassis kicked and zapped to some far off corner of space. I don't want to see something as cheesy as that happening, but I like the idea of the Autobots coming out on top for once at the end of the season (series really) and the Decepticons having to go elsewhere to regroup and rebuild...with the possible ousting of Megatron and introduction of a new leader, perhaps a general or two of his who were elsewhere in the universe continuing their fight with the Autobots or a new threat might introduce some changes those unhappy with the story so desperately want.

Wasn't Screamy kinda in charge of building the space bridge?

Maybe Screamy and Shocks can rebuild the Omega Lock together.

Now that would be an interesting episode those two working together.

Only the ones outside of Earth's orbit and the one in an abandoned mine on Earth (well, one might assume he would have been in charge had he not taken off as he did).

Quote:

Starscream is no idiot, he's definitely a quick study, but I don't think has the knowledge to rebuild/build anything for that matter.

Shockwave was said to have been the one to reverse engineer the Space Bridge, so I think the whole rebuilding of the Omega Lock will be his doing.

That would make for a fun episode, but Starscream's ego is much too big for these two to work together.

^^ Thanks, I wasn't sure about that stuff. ^^

Yeah, forgot about that ego stuff Screamy has.

No prob.

If Starscream wasn't so insecure and were able to keep his ego in check, he would be able to work with anyone.

Emotionless Shockwave will work with anyone to get the job done.

Knock IS better. He re-engineered the stuff from a droplet; however, I had thought that Ratchet and Knockout might perfect should they work on it together.

I don't know, Ratchet made the stuff with partial instructions. They propably would want to make it better at creating those cyberforms.
Transformed
Ratchet has hit a brick wall, and it appears that he hasn't been able to do much of anything--he's missing something, and he doesn't know what it is. There are no other Autobot scientist or chemists among them that can help him finish the missing sequences.

Knockout, for all we know, already figured it out, but if not, maybe these two can. If not the two of them, may those two and Shockwave can.
Negativedark
I have to wonder, if Megatron recreates the Omega Lock, will he restore Cybertron before or after he Cyberforms earth? Because that's why Optimus destroyed it. If Rachet goes over to the Cons to restore Cybertron, he may have a "Primus, what have I done?" moment.

Oh, and Hasbro, could you make up your mind about what this season's about, please? First we had Predacons, but now there's only one Predacon and we're jumping from pointless plot point to pointless plot point. At this point, it'd be more tasteful to give this series the moniker of 'Transformers; Wasting Your Time'.
Transformed
Megatron tried to have his cake and eat it too and that didn't go over well. I think he's done trying to go for a twofer.

You know, Ratchet's defection (if that's what's going to happen) could be ploy. I thought it was said that we'd see someone change sides and change sides again.

That's not really Hasbro's call. It's the writers who have made this show a giant non-event. Hasbro put Predacons in, but it's the writers who decide what actually happens, which is nothing.

They already started work on the series; they actually had to go back and make Predacons happen.
