    He would clearly have a video blog, because mere words cannot convey the glory of Starscream. And he would regularly post melodramatic speeches about how everyone is inferior to him and should bow down before him, and get enraged at the comments by humans who think he's a glove puppet.

    Since, Starscream is surfing the web, he might even find out where the kids go to school or hang out.

    Also, I was disappointed that I didn't see WJ in this episode and looks like he won't be in next week's either. (oh well)

    AH! Anyone else feel like Prime is not afraid of being dark but seems to lack the punch of pulling it off?
    The whole episode I'm thinking; "I should be enjoying this; new dude, looks cool, no one trust him, get a little bit of world building, starscream is back to kick ass, new guy pulls a clever move, bulkhead is still injured and all this makes him depressed.' But...I'm broad.

    pretty good episode! liking Smokescreen so far. it's refreshing to have a young, lets-go-get-em autobot on the team - well, one that can talk and properly express himself, anyways. all his praise for Optimus was cute, especially when everyone was just like "yeah Optimus Prime, so what?" haha.
    the whole Airachnid thing really caught my attention too. I'm not sure if Smokescreen's gonna do something there, but I think the writers are at least hinting that she's definetly going to be getting out of there somehow, and maybe soon.

    for me, though, I think the Bulkhead parts left a bigger impression on me, especially the ending. I think his vulnerability and jealousy is going to make poor Bulk do something rash... I didn't think of it at the time, but some people mentioned the Apex Armour. which makes sense, seeing how weak he is right now, so he would love to use it to prove himself. (although can you imagine the armour on him?! geezes!)

    edit: dear god, i almost forgot the best parts!! mention of the Elite Guard, and of course "Starscream? I heard stories of that stilleto-heeled creep back on Cybertron!" YES YES YES! SO MUCH WIN!

    yeah this was the only thing that bothered me. it looked cool and all, but I mean how does he 'phase-shift' through the armour but can come in solid contact with Starscream?? sounds like something G1 would do, haha. not that i'll lose sleep over it or anything

    random and off topic: nice signature. seeing as it's mine and all, haha. (check the tumblr link in my siggy)

    Damn, that last shot of bulkhead wandering off into the dark might be the most effective shot in Prime yet. It was freaking devastating.

    Smokescreen could be interesting, too, I guess.

    Finally saw it today cause Direct TV decided to be a dick and screw up when it aired -,- and i did not expect such a great episode.

    Ahh Starscream being awesome like always had to laugh seeing him on the internet. :lol 
    Sucks he lost the Apex Armor :(  but made away with Red Energon...Red energon shared with knockout in exchange for T-cog surgery ?

    New Bot is cool. Even as a Decepticon fan i seem to be liking and even caring for the Autobots, Bulkhead somewhat but he came off a bit bitchy in the episode.

    I quite liked Smokescreen. At first i thought He'd be another wasted character i would absolutely hate or not care for (like Wheeljack or Bumblebee) but i was proven wrong very interesting guy.

    correct me if I'm wrong but haven't we seen other construction vehicles or i'm crazy ? I wonder if Devastator was ever planned or is planned to appear due to the namedrops seems likely.

    Also Smokescreen seems to have an interest in Airachnid and the relics uh-oh D:

    overall a great episode :D  and next week...Silas/Breakdown is back! epic :D  ... o.o but Damn does he look disturbing and creepy D:

    Anyone else get a Hot Rod vibe from Smokescreen's character? Ambitious rookie who looks up to Prime and desperate to prove himself.

    if the guesses that Smokescreen has a mission from Alpha Trion then he might know the workings of the Phase Shifter and how to extend the shift to things he touches and like Shadowcat he can partially un-phase and re-phase what ever he touches in this case he kicks Starscream while his foot is sollid then phases him out too. granted i would just put my hand into his spark chamber and solidify it.

    Yes, and many have mentioned it too.

    I doubt he'll "turn into HR".

    Smokescreen to me was like Cheetor again xD... and I think he may soon release Airachnid for whatever reason he has...
    oh, and I hope Miko stops her rebelious attitude and leave it to Smokescreen (well, he may even been introduced to take that spot and make Miko a little bit more mature... just a bit!)
    and poor Bulk =/ but in next episode preview you can see him fighting back to back with Smokescreen against decepticons :D  can't wait
