    Yes Terratronus was an unexpected character. I thought she was going to be like Unicron in Prime when it was revealed she was under Witwicky, but I am glad she is a Titan
    As for Starscream I don't think he will get a redemption arc since I see Shockwave taking charge next

    I wonder if the whole "Emberstone shard hunt" plot was inspired by TFA s2...

    TFA did not invented "collect shards of broken magic crystal". It is very unlikely it's referencing that, it's just an incredibly old and versatile trope.

    Considering that Terratronus did not directly answer the questions of Mo, I'm wondering if there is another side to Quintus that's not... well, kindly. It's already questionable that he gave Prime power to a couple of kids or psychologically torment a child in "Prime Time" but still, considering how the show is going, I think we're getting another side to Quintus.

    I also feel like Unicron is going to be the end-all villain, or at least the series seems to be gearing up to that possibility. I mean, why add in the whole subplot of Quintus seeding different planets with "allies for the Cybertronians" if Unicron isn't involved in some capacity? Given he's a Prime and his whole goal is taking out Unicron in some way, I mean the whole using the Emberstone to create allies seems suspect. Pretty sure it's going to be revealed that the different Transformer species out there (Camiens, Sharkticons, Junkions, etc) are the result of Quintus seeding colony worlds with the help of other Primes.

    It would be cool Unicron will be involved but don't get your hopes too high because if season 2 is really the end I am not sure if it would be wise to cram in Unicron in season 2
    I think it needs to be the Quintessons only

    Yeah, I wasn't counting on Unicron being the season 2 villain but rather a season 3 villain. Or movie villain, as Nick has a habit of giving their shows a tv movie that premieres on like the day after Thanksgiving or something like that (look at The Jungle Movie and the Legends of the Hidden Temple movie come to mind). I mean, I could see Earthspark getting season 3 as a movie the same way Prime ended.

    Prime did get a third season
    You mean Predacons Rising was their season 4 not season 3

    I meant that

    Like basically have Unicron as being season 3 or 4's villain. Or make season 3 into a movie.

    So, I binged the season day one but need to sit on it.

    First, this continuity is still by far my favorite of any transformers media but this season was a major let down. I won't rehash everything that has already been said in this thread and more eloquently than I ever could but one of my main gripes is; everything felt like a side plot. Everyone felt like a side character. Nothing really felt like it mattered. Season 1's biggest flaw was dropping plot points and not following up with storylines and this season amplified that.

    Like, why should I get invested in anything if it's just going to fart out of existence from one scene to the next?

    Bumblebee and Breakdown? Don't think about it.
    Breakdown and Aftermath? Hope you didn't take that as anything more than a quick joke.
    Agent Schloeder? Who's that?
    Alex and Dorothy's relationship? Alex and Bumblebee's relationship? Alex's history with Mandroid? Meh.
    Dorothy and Megatron? Megatron's guilt over Cybertron and trying to guide the Terrans to a better future? Thrash's reluctance to learning those lessons? Not as important as Mo jumping around like badass, I assure you.
    Any growth the deceptions showed in the first season? Lol jk. They're evil.

    It's just so frustrating. This show is so, so good when it gets interpersonal and that's the part that they've scaled back on! RAH!

    I think that this is such a great show as well. I am just sad how many fans don't like it it plus with the show might getting cancelled is making me even more upset. I just want it to get at least to season 3 before getting canned

    Aftermath was basically the cow-tipping kid from Barnyard.

    I had always assumed Aftermath was a nod to ROTB Battletrap but with a goofier personality

    I enjoyed episode 3 quite a bit. Hashtag vs. Shockwave.

    I just had to post this somewhere, anybody else notice the nods to TMNT2012 in episode 4? The little smoke bombs Fairmaestro use to disappear are the same design as the ninja smoke bombs Donnie makes, and in Fairmaestro's tent on the shelf just under where the Ember shard is sitting there's like a controller or something that's totally Krang tech. Idk if they're intentional easter eggs or just reused assets but the fact that Robbie's crush wins a giant stuffed turtle makes me think somebody knew what they were doing.

    It makes sense, some of the people who work on Earthspark also worked on TMNT 2012, I recognize a lot of the names (Ciro Nielli and JJ Conway to name a few). Heck, I think the same studio animated season 1 or at least the people who worked on the design assets.

    I was wondering when someone would notice, since when I first saw Earthspark I was thinking "is this being animated by the TMNT 2012 people?"
