Now... Now... Does she look like a Cliffjumper or even a Breakdown to you?
The writers have stated that no one is safe from death in this show. You don't know who's going to die next. By the end of Season 3 the only original Autobot left could be Optimus for all we know.
Yeah... And that is writer's lingo for "We can kill off any character we want, just not the ones that Hasbro want to keep alive for marketing reasons."
It's kind of like NCIS, which disposed of two major characters before replacing them with others, disposing of a recurring character, and might be removing another main character (which is highly unlikely). So when it comes to this series, they will only dispose of characters tied to voice actors that do not (or are not allowed to) renew their contracts, much less willing to do such as said character.
And besides... Arcee was the one who had technically gotten revenge for Break Down. So you should be grateful for that.
I personally do not care which Autobots or Decepticons die, but it's how they die that matters. The fact that Breakdown was killed by Airachnid is the reason I wish he'd come back, aside from the part where he's my favorite character. Airachnid is as annoying as Miko was to me, and therefore did not deserve to die by the hands "of that retch."
Besides, not every character in the toyline's a big seller. They'd kill a character just like that once it doesn't sell. I have high doubts Arcee will be infected with Bumblebee cancer.
