* Toxicity- [[spoiler:is Hardshell dead or alive?]] He could be either, but given that DavidKaye was awesome in this episode...

** Some school avoid Friday events to increase the likelihood that students will show up. If it was a Friday, students may have their own plans and be unable to attend.

** That makes sense, but Bumblebee (translated by Raf) said that Jack was supposed to go with Arcee. Even with Arcee and Bumblebee both going, why did they have to pick who was going with each autobot?

** The autobots are alone on a hostile planet. The soldiers they have can be counted on one hand, and at this point they have yet to have the backing of the US government. Not to mention the last time an autobot went alone on a potential combat mission, he died (Cliffjumper) Of course they send more than one, at a time like this every soldier is valuable enough to merit backup.




to:

** For much of Season 1 both Autobots and Decepticons seem to only be trying to gain footing, most of their missions are not combat offensives but attempts to seize Energon and relics. So I assume that efforts to locate the Autobot base is half-hearted, especially since they ave no idea how many soldiers Optimus has, for all they know his army outnumbers theirs. Only when the same four/five bots turn up everytime do they finally start in earnest to locate the base. As for finding it, don't forget they have a ground bridge. Sightings are basically worthless, they have no way of knowing if the Autbots were fighting near their base or teleported from Vietnam to do so. Installations and roads don't mean anything, the US alone has hundreds of places fitting that description. And their bases was stated to be shielded, Megatron can't track it from his ship even when physicaly inside because no signals can penetrate it.

** According to the wiki, it was abandoned and being deconstructed by the US government.

* In "Darkness Rising part 1" Optimus sent both Bumblebee and Arcee to pick up Jack and Raf. This was before sorting out the need for them to have guardians so why didn't Optimus just send Bumblebee?

** Dark Energon is harmful to humans. Normal energon was used to neutralize it without harming Raf, which suggests that the normal stuff has little effect on human tissues. [[BeastWars Other series]] portray normal energon as having little to no effect on organics.

* Does anyone know how Darkmount was back in Predacon Rising when we see it get destroyed in Rebellion?

** Well if Starscream had been captured by the Autobots, they would have caused serious problems for Megatron. Since those problems never happened Megatron probably figured it out that Starscream wasn't with the Autobots. This Megatron is more GenreSavvy than most versions, particularly regarding Starscream.

** Where was Optimus going to get missiles from? Starscream has less excuse, but he ''did'' lead off the combat with one of his missiles, [[GenreSavvy prudently saving the other]] until he confirmed the source of the signal.

*** Honestly, I think the lack of the Autobot Ark is more because this is a reboot of the franchise, and it's not necessary; [[TransformersAnimated Animated]] got by. Besides, given how closely this resembles the movie franchise in some respects, chances are the 'bots in Prime came to Earth the same way.

*** Badassitude? Really? I always figured that headdrop was just apart of Soundwave's ''snap-shot'' camera-function or something like that. Though I guess you could be right, he does seem to really go out of his way not to harm them to badly when they meet. Which is really weird for just about ''any'' [[TransformersAnimated Soundwave]].

* Why do they keep the kids around by this point? I'm not the kind of fan who thinks no humans should ever walk across the screen, but do the Autobots by this point really think the Decepticons would care about the kids who saw a Vehicon or two once months ago? Isn't it clear by now the 'cons have bigger fish to fry and that the danger the kids are in from being around ''giant robot warfare'' is also a factor (see One Shall Fall)? It's not like the other series that went farther to justify the kids' presence; no [[TransformersFilmSeries Allspark map in a pair of glasses]], no [[Anime/TransformersCybertron MacGuffin-related sound that only they can hear]], no [[TransformersAnimated magic key]]. There haven't been any humans who were constantly with the Autobots despite being ''completely'' superfluous since Spike and Sparkplug.
