SPOILER ALERT in episode 26 (which we have yet to fully see) we saw a clip of commander airachnid giving an order to leave earth but soundwave acts like a total bad ass and puts her in her place and they remain orbiting earth. that was because soundwave knew megatron was still alive and would not abandon his master but in the event of megatron actual gone for good would airachnid truly be lord (or in this case lady) of all decepticons? or would soundwave or some other decepticon take her out of the picture and put them self as ruler? would soundwave even try to take command? he never did when starscream was in charge.
