You mean Terrorcons?

I mean, Chromia basically betrayed Windblade and everything she stands for, and then Windblade just like shrugs it off and plays it like she is a parent telling a child not to tell a lie again.
However, I find that this is also one of my favorite TF stories to date. A nice miniseries that packs punch, doesn't drag on, and is stunning to look at.

I don't think he knew at all, but it's rather down to him being a very adaptable opportunist: he clearly thought it was Rattrap, even just for the throwaway line about it. Issue #3 shows his honest surprise, though whether it is at it not being Windblade trying to blow herself up or at something else, I do not know.
We've seen it with the Metrotitan, with the NAILS, in pretty much every iteration of the character- he's quick, he learns, he knows how to spin things his way, with varying degrees of success. And he probably sees how others can be like him, and only takes it as natural if that actually happens.

But as a Speaker she had to make the decision to stand above her own desires and help all Cybertronians. Though that seems counterintuitive, I believe Windblade made the decision to spare Chromia because in her heart she felt her friend was doing what she did for the right reasons and it'll better for her if they both stand together in their brave new world.
