    I think it will take up a good deal of the season because it won't be the only focus. Similar to how mech comes and goes in season 1, Im thinking Decepticon Orion will be confronted a few times by the autobots with no success for them and during his time back in the nemesis, he'll have some flashback moments of his time with megatron.. maybe even an ep or 2 of it..with him coming back happening later on in the season..so he'll be a decepticon for a while, just not constantly episode to episode since screentime'll probably shift to other things.. (Mech, Starscream, Scraplets, and Autobot leadership issues)

    I have a feeling it'll open with a 3-parter after which he'll have his memories restored, which I really hope it doesn't, because I'd really like to see this plot-line take up a significant part of the season

    I'm thinking it will be the entire seasons story arc. Could be wrong.

    I'd like him to stay a con for the full season.

    Yes, I hope too that it will take more of season 2. But then again... the three-parter of season 1 promised me a season with zombie robots and a plot around dark energon but then it was only important in those episodes merely.

    I'm guessing just the first multi-part episode, if not only episode 1 of season two.

    I hope it's long. Ideally, permanently.

    I'm Guessing no more than 3/4 of a season.

    I'd say no more than 2 episodes, though I'd love to see it as a season long storyline.

    He'll only be a con for 2-3 episodes, if they really don't want a cop-out, half the season max.

    As long as the story takes to properly develop. Rushing Prime back to normal deflates the dramatic tension, but I'd hate to see Orion become the S2 version of Miko seemly learning his lesson numerous times only to irrationally backslide between episodes.

    Realistically, as long as the story needs him to be. Though personally, I hope he's with the con's for a good while. At the very least half of season two, if not the entirety of it. Maybe even have the ending of season two be all about the process of him getting his memories back and returning to the Autobots.

    I hope he stays that way most of the season. Optimus becoming a Decepticon is a neat twist, and it would be disappointing for the concept to come and go too fast. But I won't be surprised if he's back to normal in a few episodes...

    Orion Pax plotline is too nice to waste, but keeping him in Decepticon for whole season would be little bit weird.
    So, how about OP becoming rogue like Starscream?

    I think just a few episodes at most. Something big might happen that will make him realize that the Decepticons are not the side to be on. He's lost his memory, not his personality.

    But I hope it takes a little longer to remember everything.

    If the story arc lasts at least 7-9 episodes I'll be happy! Not too short but also not too long.
