Whatever, it's not a huge deal. Knock Out isn't going to stay a wall decoration for long.
Yea, here's what i have to say about that.
I will be the first to admit that i have kind of been an apologist for Prime, i've tried to defend its ups and its downs, but this is the one thing that i disliked so much that it took me out (besides the end of Chimera and Silasdown).
It wasn't so much the whole stuck in the wall thing, that i enjoyed, it was one line by Megatron: "You shall serve as a constant reminder to those who dare fail me" or something like that. Immediately after i was like "oh man, Knockout's gonna be in a wall now? wow thats awesome.....wait, in the preview he was out again. Huh?"
Again, my qualm isn't that
he was stuck in the wall, or even if we don't see him get removed, it's that Megatron wanted him to stay in the wall as a constant, as in permanent,
reminder to his other followers. And i knew that he'd get removed eventually of course, but for it to happen within the very next episode caused me to think about it on a meta level, which led me to this assumption: either the showrunners outright do not regulate what the freelance writers put in their scripts to make continuity flow, or they are cognizant of the status quo and they just don't care; both of which are huge
red flags for me.
With MECH, they've already proved to me that they can develop excellent ideas, but when they don't go along with what they have planned, they will run them to the ground. Now, they're starting to prove that there is a disconnect of some type between the writers that is starting to be a detriment to the show, and i hope they can escape that; im not sure that they can now. I am always prepared to eat a bit of crow on any subject, however it is rare that i have had to do that.
