The creators of the show stated that in Season 3, bad characters will turn good and good characters will turn bad. We saw how Ratchet scolded Optimus for chosing to put the kids' wellbeing above that of Cybertron. So I am wondering. Will Ratchet join the Decepticons in Season 3, even if briefly. It's not like any of the Autobots could know since he will be alone on his own when the Cons find him or he finds the Cons. The show creators did say that we haven't seen the last of the Synthetic Energon. Could Ratchet play a part in helping the Cons make the Synthetic Energon formula?
