    What happened to Airachnid?
    Could her "prison" save her or was she destroyed?
    I doubt that the Autobots could have released her.

    Sorry, I searched for "Airachnid" key- word for the last week and haven't found any similar threads.

    An update: what happens, if she survived: will she be locked in her cell or will she be realesed because of something or somebody.

    I'm hoping crushed like a insect getting smashed by one's foot.

    come on, she is in a stasis pod. of course she survived. this show always shows the body when a character dies, and they never showed hers, so that means her fate is still up in the air.

    she's in one of the insecticons stasis pods. no way she's dead. those things smashed into the earth upon entering orbit from cybertron. no way a little explosion is going to harm it.

    Even if she survived...Will Megatron or others discover her locked or free?

    I don't think that these stasis cells are so powerful that they can protect from anything. Otherwise we would have much more, than one Apex Armour.

    I'd like to see Megatron slowly tearing her apart.

    well, she could survive but highly doubt she'd be welcome back into the ranks so easily. if anything she'd go rouge, maybe even take the insecticons. megatron said no more infighting amounst the team and she likes to plot and scheme. so ... who knows.

    She was shown so often, I guess in the next episode, when Optimus frees himself from the rubble, he encounters her broken prison. Empty.

    i mean characters that we are introduced to in episodes.

    it is unlikely but not impossible, megs did take starscream bacl despite the amount of times he has tried to kill him.

    plus it would be good to see Airachnid hunting down Arcee and Jack.

    I think, he requires some help for that...
    I suppose that the explosion could open the cell somehow: it could make some damage or be like a signal to the cell.

    I refuse to believe we were teased with Airachnid twice only to have her forgotten just like that.

    Stasis Pods are designed for interstellar travel, protecting its occupants from the harshness of deep space, as well as slowing their internal clock to a snails pace and providing them enough substance to sustain life.

    While a direct blast from the Nemesis may have devastated the Autobot's mountain base, it did not reduce it to powder. We can see a lot of the base's inner workings while Megatron and Starscream bare witness to the destruction--even a portion of Optimus (to the viewers of course) is visible. My point is this: if we can see parts of the base/Optimus intact, surely Airachnid in a Stasis Pod could have survived too.

    If anything, I'd say that the blast compromised her pod, creating her the opportunity to escape. Airachnid's survival could be the Decepticons' new found fealty into question. Again. Starscream, like Dreadwing, won't be able to let past transgressions go. Imagine his mindset when he discovers an empty pod and no Airachind.

    And what about Megatron's? He says that Decepticons need to get passed their difference and must be united, but is willing to look past the fact that Airachnid concocted two plans that nearly killed him twice?

    Isn't she too dangerous to be kept alive?

    I'm sure Airachnid would want nothing more than to find a ship and get the hell away from Earth, but as that isn't an option, I think she's more likely to ally herself with the Autobots, and what better way for her to do that than to save Optimus from discovery or capture?

    Knowing her she survived the blast because the stasis pod "saved" her.

    She didn't suffer a direct hit from the Nemesis, so I don't think it's a matter of her pod saving her--again, the base wasn't reduced to powder. I will say, however, that her pod, puts her in a better position to free herself given the space it provides its occupant.

    Transformed, so you think that the cell reacted on the invasion and got opened?

    are forgetting we saw the explosion, no way he survived that and it took out the vehicons there too.

    it isnt like they cut thr camera the moment we saw the grenade on him.

    It would make zero sense to have Airachnid written out of the show without killing her and then kill her. If she wasn't put in that stasis pod to allow the writers to come back to her later, maybe when Gina Torres was available again, I'll eat my hat.

    Don't know, and honestly? don't really care either. While it wouldn't make sense to not return to her, I would be perfectly ok if we never saw her again. Her character was interesting...for a while. I can't really say that I would be invested in her story continuing. Though if they made her interesting again, I guess that could change.

    Would be hilarious if she was still in the stasis pod, the Decepticons find her, and all they do is transfer her to their new base to be put on display like a trophy, lol...
