    I've been getting a gut feeling since we seen her in the first 5 episodes that this will eventually happen. If it does, who do you think does it? Will it be a new character? Or will it just be a group of clones dispatched by Starscream? Will Miko and Raf both have family members taken too? More importantly, how do you think the rescue will be scripted?

    Interesting thought. I never really thought about her but you're right. I feel that Jack is more important than the other 2 even thought they try to make all 3 kids important. Heck, he's the first kid to be seen and was given more attention at first with his job and bike dream.

    Seeing as his mum is the only parent to be seen then yeah, she is kidnapping bait.

    Miko - Future jailbait?

    But seriously, you're probably right about Jack's mom. Even if she's not kidnapped, I suspect there will be an episode where she finds out about Arcee. Maybe they could bond by complaining about Jack? :p

    Seeing as how Jack's mom is the only parent to be seen onscreen and possibly the only one that has even been created(CGI model), I'm guessing we will see her again in some capacity.

    Are you kidding? She's too cool to be kidnapped. She'd slap any Decepticon on the hand that tried to pick her up, Soundwave included. Slap them with her purse. And then she'd ride them around like a sandworm, all Geena Davis style. Oh yeah!

    I agree, she'll end up as a TF: Prime Daphney.

    FANFICTION! FANFICTION!!!

    I can see her being trapped with a group of humans the Decepticons picked up but not being singled out. I'm pretty sure humans all look the same to the 'Cons.

    That actually would make sense, Then Fowler's partner can be either Prowl or Wheeljack.

    I wished they'd bring her back soon, i mean in almost every transformers series excluding G1, RiD, Energon, Animated and the Micheal Bay films never show the parents much at all in the series or hell were never that important.....or hell bring in Raf's parents or miko's host parents,

    Just thought I'd bump this given the events of TF: Prime Episode "Crisscrossed". ;)

    Before the show even aired, I had guessed that Cliffjumper wouldn't be a member of the main cast. So I got eight ups on you, YE-YEAH!

    Might be. Look at what happened to Isaac Sumdac in Animated. Although to be fair, Isaac was more of a main character than Jack's Mom.

    I just hope it doesn't start becoming a repetitive thing.

    Crisscross handled it well, I think. And the main thing it accomplished was dropping the whole cartoon'ish thing of don't let mom find out.

    This past episode did bring up a few curious questions.

    -Mech (and ostensibly Arachnid) knows where Jack and June live. He is a link to the Autobots and therefore an easy way to get to them when they feel the itch to nab a Transformer.

    -If the Darby's safety has been compromised, what about Miko and Raf's identities and family? Although neither Mech nor Arachnid seem to know of their existence, Soundwave does. And who is to say he couldn't find them through Social Networking Page? Well, Miko at least. Raf's too young I think. lol


    The next few episodes will be interesting to say the least.

    I think this is something the writers will more likely forget for now.

    I hope that the whole "family done got kidnapped" plot is a one-off thing. It's pretty lazy writing and it's been done to death.

    Get out.

    It's completely logical thing to do though, it's been done to deaht in other shows because it works because humans got strong familiar ties, I'm surprised Decepticons never try it much when it's the perfect trap for kids that hang out with the autobots.

    Then again, as TFA, TFP and pretty much everything since Beast Wars proved, Transformers villains are all super super dumb morons.

    I think "Speed Metal" made it clear that most 'cons can't, or don't care to, tell humans apart. They kidnapped Douche Lad when they were after Raf. Those two aren't the same size or even colour and Knock Out made that error.

    Airachnid is an exception, likely due to her little hobby. She's need to be able to tell aliens of a specific species apart from each other.
