    I was wondering if Jack has a dad. Miko explains that her real parents are in Tokyo, Raff has a big family but it's just Jack's mom. I would like to know something about his dad. Why she is single or if he died or whatever

    She mentioned that his dad "left them", though we do not know if he is dead or if he left the family because he's a dick etc.

    I would vote on him beind dead because of a motorcycle accident, that would explain why June freaked out about wearing a helmet.

    I consider it likely he's dead - but they might change their mind on that I think it's open to be utilised in either way if they want to.

    Can't a kid have divorced parents in a cartoon? Or maybe they were never married at all.

    Maybe MECH's leader sees Jack and says "I'm your father." :p 

    I suppose Hasbro will somehow use Jack's father as a plot device.

    This exactly. And to add to it, can't a kid have a parent who's not involved in the show what-so-ever?

    I mean, we hear about Raf's parents and siblings and they haven't been show...outside of a tiny picture on his phone.

    I believe he left Jack and his mother, I think it is an aspect of life that is hardly addressed in mainstream media, not even the live action movie dared have Sam have anything less then a "perfect" family life.

    I'd find it creepily funny if it turns out Silas is Jack's father.

    But creepy is right. Silas is what, 60? June's what, 30-35?

    20-25? You've got to be joking. If she were 20-25, how old would she have been when she had Jack, who's now 16? Do a little math here.

    I'd put June at mid-to-late thirties. She therefore would've had Jack in her late teens to early twenties. Assuming Jack's father was the same age at the time, he would've been about the correct age for a young douchebag who'd 'hit that shit raw dog, then bail'.

    Meh, I don't think Jack's Dad is a story angle that necessarily merits being explored, unless they've got a doozy of a way of going about it. And I doubt that the producers & writers will pull a Darth Silas on us.

    Now, if the whole town of Jasper turns out to be Minicon Pretenders who don't know they're Minicon Pretenders, or that they were the result of an attempt by Alpha Trion to salvage Optimus in the event of his death by "seeding" remnants of him across the cosmos, on the other hand...:tongue:

    I don't know. She looks that young.

    Or I'm an idiot. It's one of the two.

    She DOES look very young, but to be 9 years old when she had Jack? I don't think so for many realistic and show based reasons...I think the earlier post of mid thirties covers it more correctly.

    I remember someone mentioning on these forums that if the character death next season is Agent Fowler, then it'd be cool if he's replaced by another Agent that happens to be Jack's father. I think that would be epic onlyfor the reveal... but nothing better could come out of it without delving into very dark places lol. Plus I want Ernie Hudson around forever.. so no to that!~

    If Silas would be Jacks father wouldn't Jack recognize him?
    Maybe there are still photos of him somewhere?
    Or it could be possible that his dad left them as Jack was a little older or he had left only recently.


    I assume she looks so young because of all the tofu she eats

    Can we assume that Jack ever met his father?

    No, but we can assume June knows who he is. Think about it- d'ya think she saw Silas when he and Airachnid kidnapped her in Crisscross?

    Unless she was drunk when they knocked boots, of course.
