So yes, I to would like to know if her motives will be made clear, before she bites the dust.
I have a theory about why she's obsessed with achieving perfection, through robotics. This could be a sign of a troubled past. Like maybe she's trying to run from something, by making herself perfect. Know what I'm saying?

Was Jack's sword able to cleanse evil? I vaguely remember him stabbing someone and watching the shadows speed away leaving the victim unharmed. Or am I just crazy?

1.) After her friends were destroyed, she bargained with the HIVE and agreed to work with them. I read on the wiki for Medabots (because it has been far too long since I last saw Medabots) that Sam is often thought of as an opportunist, so in order to survive maybe she just decided to switch sides (Something the wiki said she would do throughout the series if events weren't in her favor). What I do remember from Medabots is that she was a tomboy who cared a lot about her friends. Maybe she felt guilty for her choice later and decided to have herself "fixed" so that she doesn't feel bad.
2.) Something Sam did contributed to her friends being destroyed (I read that Sam would sometimes run away if someone else was stronger than her, so maybe she ran faster than they did?). Vexus (taking advantage of her grief/guilt) convinces her that it was her emotions that got her friends killed. Vexus then offers to fix her problems if she joins the HIVE.

Of course, the catch 22 of her becoming perfect would probably eliminate her desires (as it did her so called other weaknesses). Though that's only true if the definition of perfect involves her becoming 100% machine. This way, however, Dr. X doesn't have to honor his commitment and also gets a loyal follower in the process. It'd be win-win for him.

I think that it would gas out once being opened, but I don't want to get ahead of myself with all this cause we need to focus on timing between the whole thing with the bombing.
bluebluetopaz wrote:I do wonder at times if she really will die. I wonder if that light from the bomb can mask energy signals. We know something happened to her (her energy signal did disappear after all) but we don't see the second reading until after the bomb goes off. Dexter's demeanor in the next page suggests something happened to Blossom, so could she have disappeared too?

I have a pretty good idea, and thank God for that.
I'm not going to keep it very subtle. People will see it pretty quickly. But it evokes a good theme for the continuation past the bomb detonation. One of those ultra-important conceptual movements.
bluebluetopaz wrote:If she dies (I'll elaborate a bit later so stay with me) then I'd probably feel conflicted. Only taking into account the information we've been presented , it would be pretty easy to say that she had it coming (especially since she is up against the good guys/girls). However, since I am somewhat aware of who she was in Medabots, the whole thing just makes me want to sympathize on some level.
bluebluetopaz wrote:I mean, what happened for her to believe that being sentimental will destroy you? It had to have been something somewhat traumatizing.

I'm having a hell of a time drawing any conclusions from this alone. Mainly because there's no clear indication as to what happens after the bomb goes off. I'm still holding on the the theory that Buttercup is the one who kills Sam.

If it is a pretty quick death, then maybe she does get incinerated by one of these energy blasts. Then again it is pretty hard to get a grasp on how much time has passed. Therefore, it is very possible that Buttercup will do something that contributes to Sam's death.

How she dies remains a mystery for now. I'd say it's somewhat likely that one of the stray energy blasts will destroy Samantha. But I think it's more likely that Buttercup will destroy Sam herself(also that's kinda how I'm hoping it'll play out).
Havoc751 wrote:I remember BR also said the events are all dealt with by the emotional contexts of each character. We've already seen this with Blossom. Based on this info, I'm expecting Buttercup (in a blind rage), to reclaim Jack's sword and go completely ape-shit on Samantha with it (something similar to this).
Havoc751 wrote:I'm also expecting Buttercup to completely fuck something up. I feel like the fact she disregarded Jack's lecture, and ignored Ms.Honeydew's warning not to take things too personally, might be some sort of 'foreshadowing'.
Either her unruly actions will be the cause of the bomb going off, or she'll end up killing Samantha, and greatly regretting it. Or she might even unintentionally bring about harm to Blossom somehow.
