I did not feel Orion Pax 1-3 was epic and deserving of a Season 2 opener. These episodes were not epic and anything special, especially when you compare them to the last Season 1 episodes. Jack going to Cybertron: so what? Really. I think they only put him into a space suit to try to force a "this is so dangerous and astonishing" attitude in the audience's mind. But once Jack used the key to download the Matrix back into Prime, he wasn't even acknowledged or thanked for what he did. It was just a non-issue. They went against Unicron in season 1 only to go back to the same old formula in Season 2. Nothing interesting was revealed. No interesting plotlines other than making us wonder what those artifacts of Iacon are. Just more meh. The episodes weren't bad. They would have made good middle of the season episodes. They were just not worthy of finale or opening episodes.
