Im confused ,what happened to jacks dad.Did he die or something?
some people believed he died from a motorcycle accident, which is why his mother is so protective and paranoid about him having a motorcycle BUT...
when his mother talks about Jack's father not being around, she makes it sound like he left, like a deadbeat...so, i'm going with the latter, since the dialogue lead more to that than anything else.
June mentioned that he "left" in Metal Attraction, sometime prior to the show.
We've really don't know what happen to Jack's dad.
He went black to his home planet. His people needed him. (Note: He died before he could get there)
He left them, June said so
His dad is... Agent Fowler!
(There was no word mention WHEN his dad left so Jack may not recognize Fowler as his real father)
If Fowler was the father then June would recognize him
She could also PRETEND to not recognize him as the father.
Pretty sure word on the street was him being Silas or something. Either that or he left June for Airachnid (inb4timelinebreak) for arguably an even more fanwanky outcome. He better not be dead though, or I'm really gonna pretend to rage to the Prime forum about the writers & their cop out, yaddy yaddy yabba.
Realistically though, my guess is that he left rather recently, rather than right after Jack was born or something. I mean, if it was just the 2 of em, why would they live in a suburban house with an empty garage that's only used for Arcee to sleep in?
Then Fowler would have recognized her.
He may have recognized her. He calls her by "Mrs. Darby", not June to disturb Jack who had already gone through enough with Silas and Airachnid.
Left or died.
Although I'm fairly certain he won't come back up, I would like for them to make him a run away/deadbeat. It would make shows more realistic and not many kid shows touch on that kind of stuff methinks.
It's a vicious cycle (pun intended). Jack's dad left June for another man, just like Jack is doing to Arcee. In fact, that's kind of what Arcee is: a vicious cycle. Kudos to Prime.
TF: Prime actually takes place in the future and Jack's real dad is really Sam Witwicky and the real reason Mikaela dumped him was because she was pregnant with Jack and she didn't tell Sam because she thought he was irresponsible. She also changed her name to hide from the threat of the Decepticons.
I like the continuity there haha.
During season 1, I think the Prime writers saw a lot of what people were saying. I didn't pick up Prime until season 1 was alreayd over, but I understand that a lot of people hated the humans ( i didnt) during season 1 and wanted them toned down. From what we could see in Speed Metal and the likes, the children's social lives probably would have played more of a part, but that was probably dropped because, well, look at what season 2 is doing.
Things I think they were going to go for in season 1 would be Jack's father, or just how he lived with his mother all his life. Raf's big family and how he's constantly ignored by them because things are so busy there and one day, Miko talking with her parents in Japan and having to lie to them about what she's doing in America...I would have liked those, but...what could have been =[
I think those could've worked well too, but there's always a chance to explore the human side of things later on, sort of like what happened in Digimon.
