Theory: Based on the title, the fact that Arcee and a friend of her's is involved, this episode could possibly include the flashback scene of Arcee and Cliffjumper (her "friend") being introduced to Shockwave by Starscream seen in Shockwave's Hall of Fame video.

Alternate theory: This episode will feature an animated adaptation of the Prime graphic novel, which also featured Arcee and Cliffjumper "uncover[ing] a feat of Decepticon engineering intending to destroy the Autobots" before the cartoon series began.

Or (RIP) Cliff actually is in the cartoon, the weapon being Terrorcons: Dark Energon infused dead bots or something of the sort. Would explain the figures of a dead character at least. (Especially considering how they've treated Breakdown.)

The reason we got all these Cliffjumper toys is because, at the time, Hasbro's toy department assumed Cliffjumper would be a main cast character and didn't know that he'd be killed off in the first episode. Recall how the Skyquake toy mold was switched to being released as Dreadwing first due to his being alive? That's why the Skyquake deco is coming later.

I can imagine that if they bring in Shockwave, they'll bring in the dinobots as well (maybe they're hunting him for revenge for what he did to them) that could explain the title as well :-?

There's more evidence for the Dinobots to show up in season 3 than season 2 (if they show up at all) since "Rage of the Dinobots" lead directly into season 3.

well how d you know season two is.gonna be long.

This could be a shorter season but i dont think so.

Arcee and a friend? I wonder what friend, tailgate, cliffjumper anyone else?

It could be her and ''buddy'' could discover the dinobots which were made by shocky right?

Hhhhhmmmm :-?

The "Decepticon engineering intending to destroy the Autobots" could be the Dinobots judging by the title "out of the past" :-? . Maybe the writers are trying to do something similar to FOC in that case if they don't bring in the Dinobot strait away they may bring in shockwave. :-B
Whatever happens i'm gonna die if I don't at least see a promo :shock: :BOT:

Season 2 is 26 episodes, just like season 1. Only 15 episodes have aired thus far, so it's morel likely for the Dinobots to show up next season due to "Rage of the Dinobots"

isnt this obvious to everyone the "friend" is a reference to Bulkhead. They arent going to reveal that its Bulkhead in the episode description because they dont want to release the spoiler that bulkhead survived the mid season 2 finale.

this is clearly a Bulkhead reference.

which honestly disapoints me. i will explain. due to the cost of this show and the depth given to each character, the only way we are gonna get new bots is to replace existing ones.... sure we got wheeljack as a more of a special guest star, however if we want Ironhide in the show - as much as i hate to say it our best bet is to say goodbye to Bulkhead. and i am ok with that. if simply for the fact that i want very badly to see some new characters. :CON:

Anyone else notice that is says Arcee and a friend uncover technology 'intending to destroy the Autobots'? Typo or something else? :-? We did see Starscream introducing her to Shockwave at the Hall of Fame after all...

Wait, The Hub is moving Prime back to Friday nights? #-o

I get worried when networks keep moving shows around (Firefly, SGU, etc.), it usually doesn't end well...

Argh! Now that this has been pointed out, it means that once my Fall semester starts, i'll be missing both the Prime episodes on Friday evenings and the Rescue bots episodes Saturday mornings (since I have class at both of those time; it's a Friday/Saturday class).

While I can still catch them with the DVR, there's just something so fulfilling about catching the episodes live at the times they air at. so much for being able to enjoy that feeling. >:oP
