I rewatched the Beast Wars episode Deep Metal and there was something near the beginning of the episode that made me wonder if Rampage really did die. At about 2 1/2 minutes into the episode, where it introduces Depth Charge, the quantum scan revealed Rampage's energy signature. I thought this was curious because Depth Charge was in the present and not the past when the energy signature was detected. Of course, I am completely unfamiliar with "quantum scans" and the like, so I could be looking into it too much. After I finished watching the episode and watched the scene in Nemesis Part 1 where Depth Charge thrusts the Energon Blade into Rampage's spark. There is the explosion and also the bits and pieces of both Rampage and Depth Charge. Again, perhaps I'm looking into it too much, but I was wondering if it was at all possible if Rampage could have actually survived his implied demise, since other characters have been blown up time and time again (albeit usually in comical ways and reasons). Does anybody have any thoughts on this? Thanks. P.S. Please don't hurt me. I'm not trying to stir up controversy or start an arguement; I'm just curious what you think.
