    I guess he'll think twice about underestimating humans now. He should have known better anyway, after all humans are Unicrons children.:D

    Is it odd I find the autopilot and missile launching controls reminds me of the Mass Effect Paragon and Renegade?

    I'm a bit irritated that they killed Hardshell. It was an okay episode, imo.

    They do know, if they wanted to kill him off, they would have done it, now we will see a bad atmosphere at team prime until Bulkhead fully recoveres, and it can take everything from one episode till the last one this season.

    I actually liked him, but obviously they have to make room for the slow arrival of Shockwave, i just hope that Shockwave is not just gonna be in one flashback episode.

    Maybe it is hard for him to accept that the Screamer was right about something

    Loved, loved, loved this episode. I'm a sucker for emotional drama. So for it to work in Transformers is quite the accomplishment.

    I felt no connection to Hardshell so I wasn't upset about his demise.

    As for Bulkhead, I guess "comatose" is better than "miracle" for the hundreth time.

    I'm glad this episode brought back my anticipation for this show. The same can't be said for this fandom, however.

    There are times I wished Hardshell would still be here to stay - quite the worthy opponent against the Autobots! Still, quite the episode! :D

    How did the Insecticon manage to hit KnockOut, who was staying behind the door?
    Doctor really have a nice temper.

    He reopened the door.

    Woah, that was a great episode. Miko rocked. And the fight reminded me of Wolverine Vs. Hulk.

    Miko was great in this episode, even if it was at the expense of wheeljack. One of the better shows of the series.

    Oh wow,this episode was miles better than I expected it to be.Miko was great in this one.
    About Hardshell...never thought he was an interesting character to begin with,nor did I think that he could evolve,so his death doesn't bother me at all.
    Oh,and Bulkhead better stay in coma for a while.

    This is why the Prime humans are so much better than Spike, Carly, Chip Chase et al. They play meaningful roles—and are actively involved in the war—rather than running around trying not to be stepped on (although they do plenty of that too).

    Fowler, Jack, June and (begrudgingly) Miko are far from useless. Neither is Raf, even though he plays a non-combat supporting role (and unlike Chip Chase actively avoids fighting, as he should).

    Being involved in a war (in a realistic manner) will involve killing at some point for many of the characters. I have no doubt by the series end, that—out of the kids—Jack (at the very least) will have also killed a Con. Real life is no different. There have been many situations where really young children—younger than Miko—were forced to take up arms in a dire situation, like the children that fought in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in WWII etc.

    I think the original poster's characterization of Miko as a cold-blooded killer was, at best, a tad "armchair critic." Miko did what any reasonable—thinking, feeling—individual would have done at the time if they saw their friend in mortal danger.

    The episode was fucking awesome up untl Miko killed Hardshell. Then I rage quit and didn't finish the episode.

    Hardshell had a good dynamic with Knockout and Megatron and could've been a much much much more fun character to watch bouncing around the Nemesis than Dreadwing or Airchnid or hell even Breakdown were.

    But noooooooo!

    ChaosDonkey, the door did re- open, but KnockOut still was staying behind that door. Even, if the Insecticon hit him, there is no possibility for KnockOut to be before the door and there is no possibility for him to be sent away and hit the door with his back.

    After you posted i watched it on youtube since i found it weird myself, you can see the door close behind him before the hit. 08:15-08:21.
    Cause of the scene changes some seconds towards the insecticon runing towards the vehicon you don't see him exit the room. But you see the door shut behind him, the vehicon then jumps to the right to avoid the insecticon hit, and hits knockout instead.

    It is easy to be confused by slightly bad cutting in that scene

    KnockOut hadn't left the room, he was inside. And the door still was staying between him and the Insecticon. And after the Insecticon hit him, KnockOut must have had rammed the environment of his room, but there was no way for him to be staying before the door.

    KnockOut didn't have a chance to leave the room: the Vehicon was occupying the only space, where KO could make a step forward. In addition, the Doctor didn't have any reason to leave the room, since he had seen, what was happening there.

    find it on youtube and see the scene between 08:15-08:21.
    It cuts between Knockout inside the room, the insecticon, and then knockout with the doors shuting behind him.
    Bad cutting
