```Hello:

You can do what you want with Sequence:

In[1]:=
seq1 = {{a, b}, {c, d}}
seq2 = {{e, f}, {g, h}}
Line[{Sequence @@ seq1, Sequence @@ seq2}]

Out[1]=
{{a, b}, {c, d}}

Out[2]=
{{e, f}, {g, h}}

Out[3]=
Line[{{a, b}, {c, d}, {e, f}, {g, h}}]

However, it would seem to be much easer to just join the lists of pairs.

In[4]:=
Line[Join[seq1, seq2]]

Out[4]=
Line[{{a, b}, {c, d}, {e, f}, {g, h}}]

Hope this helps.
