    Maybe he thought that it would help find the other pillars. If Shockwave pretended to fight, then that would explain his quick demise at the end.

    Yeah. Shocky attacked them so Optimus would think the decepticons want the Ark, making him go get Sentinel first.

    To quiken things. By showing up and revealing himself, it forced Prime to be more hasty in retriving Sentinel from the moon. Plus it made it more convincing. That's why he didn't put up a real fight, and was basically just running around makign a scene until Optimus disarmed him, then legged it.

    SHockwave led Optimus to the fuel cell
    They knew Optimus would chase Shockwave, like Laserbeak said, "The AUtobots have taken the bait"

    I was more concerned about how Frances McDormand's character was all, 'this was all classified information..btw, here are a couple guys who kept the secret as well as Buzz Aldrin. And unlike their contract states, we're perfectly fine with them telling giant robots, and they will not take their cyanide capsules.'

    Megatron told him too. But it was all a pretend fight, otherwise he would have fought Optimus right then and there.
