Totally. I liked the ambiguity of that moment and, as you say, lends itself to future interpretation. And it's one of those instances that I'm glad Roberts can't play anything straight. At one moment it's almost heartbreaking, until Megatron makes that comment to Pax about taking on the Senate.

Like, should I be touched or suspicious? Awesome stuff there.

Also totally worth mentioning is Milne's work on that scene, with Megatron's shifting expressions. It's art working to enhance the story. It's subtle, but I dig little details like that. Milne continues to grow.
