Episode 32 -
First in show mention of the term "Terrorcon" to refer to a Dark Energon zombie! And first acknowledgement of Skyquake being one (but do they know about him being in the Shadowzone? Maybe, if the kids told them, but nothing's been said).
Aw, Wheeljack's got an arm cannon that his toy doesn't have. That's no fun.
Dude! Fowler still pilots a jet without a flight suit. Dude is still hardcore!
So that's probably what Optimus won't approve of. Wheeljack's undisciplined, rebellious nature and disregard of others' safety. The guy really is a loose cannon.
Seaspray was a Wrecker and another old friend of Bulkhead's. And yes, Wheeljack says perfect straight that he was "blown to bits."
The place or planet that Wheeljack was gonna meet Seaspray near was called "Madeira".
Optimus says Dreadwing was both a captain of a Seeker armada and Skyquake's twin. Not sure if he meant figuratively (in that they just share the same body-type) or literally (in that they're actual brothers).
I just noticed something. Doesn't the Dreadwing/Skyquake body-type kind resemble a Prime version of Movie Starscream's body? (With a new head, of course.) I mean, the cockpit chest, the wide torso, the jet altmode type, the wings hanging off the the back in the odd way (i.e. - not pointed up like the G1 Seekers) the broad shoulder width, the bulked up physique... it all reminds me of Movie Starscream (with some modifications made to fit the Prime art style, of course).
Okay, Dreadwing pretty much describes both him and Skquake as being literal twin brothers who share a sensational connection, yet he refers to Skyquake as one whom he only "considered" a brother, rather than just saying that he was his brother.
He also swears by the Pit.
Jackie lists off the names of other deceased Wreckers: Roadbuster, Pyro, Impactor, Rotorstorm, and Seaspray.
Did Bulky and Jackie really both fit inside the Jackhammer together?
LOL. Well, if Optimus squeezed in there, I guess Bulkhead did too.
Hey, G1 fans, look! Wheeljack's being all mechanic and tech-savvy trying to defuse the bomb on Bulkhead. You can all calm down now.
Wheeljack mentions Sandokan (which the closed captions misspell as "Sandakan").
Bulkhead apparently does no know of Wheeljack being the Wreckers' mechanic, as he has no faith in Jackie being able to defuse the bomb.
Huh, even Wheeljack admits that he can't defuse the bomb. I guess this device was simply that complicated to disarm.
...Or maybe it was just one of those "so simple that it just looked unfixable" bombs. Really, this sure does some serious injustice to Wheeljhack's technical know-how. He is a mechanic in this continuity, so maybe he's just lost his edge over the past several eons. Though, he did have it narrowed down to the right one and two others, so many it was just the pressure of the battle weighing him down.
Sleek altmode, Jackie.
And with this episode, Dreadwing makes another compelling Decepticon like Starscream and Airachnid.
Next week... no preview. Bummer.

People say he's colored like Depth Charge.
Shadowman wrote:-Wheeljack doesn't like Optimus, and doesn't recognize him as leader. Which is weird, because as a Prime, that makes Optimus the boss of everyone who isn't a Decepticon.
He's a rebel and a former black ops soldier. He doesn't fully respect the rules authority.
Shadowman wrote:-Well, the 'cons have a new member, and the 'bots may or may not be keeping Wheeljack; they finally convinced him to stay on Earth, but I don't know if they managed to convince him to stay at the base.
He'll probably come and go as he pleases, but staying on Earth and using the base as his, well, home base.
