me: boy i sure do hope Optimus is just under some form of mind control like the obvious purple eyes suggest, instead of willingly being all like “y’know what, random Maker lady i just met in space….fuck it….you’re right…..maybe i should have put Cybertron first this whole time….ok let’s go fuck up the Earth lol” like the set interviews, trailers, and that movie poster suggest
brain: but the latter sure would explain his rising levels of “insanity” as the movies went on…..plus it would turn Sentinel’s betrayal into foreshadowing….mmmmm smell that continuity and the connections??? ah yes it’s like the new writers have been hinting at this whole time……connecting all the movies AND changing things up
me: *sweats nervously* true but that doesn’t mean i have to like it lmao
Irish faeries are actually aliens who just happen to be super small and they had technology that seemed like magic to the Irish folk of the time, so that whole thing about the fairies taking you to the Other World was just a threat the aliens made to the terrified villagers so they’ve been living in peace in their cloaked alien observation posts just watching humanity find new and better ways of killing each other.
