Tonight is episode two of defiance and I can actually say I'm kind of excited. The first episode wowed me as I thought I wouldn't like the show at all.

What does everyone think will happen?
Will nolan hook up with the mayor? *giggitty*

Feel free to discuss anything about the show and post your thoughts as the episode airs.

Idk, but I'm excited also, I knew I'd like the show though... Well scratch that, I liked the idea of the show. They could have botched it up, but I feel they did great.

For a pilot that had to present soo much, new world, environment, characters, drama, races, languages, etc I feel it did a great job, now to the new episode, btw DVR is a beautiful thing.

doesn't appear that any pay site will air the show as it airs on tv, which is dumb.

Watching the end of the last show in waiting, noticed the spider machine thing in the background... That thing will grow and guard San Fran! I trade getting to San Fran by cloaking behind trees, it doesn't work... Guess I have to do the missions :( Nolan, why didn't you blow it up then QQ? It wasn't evil then.. But things change man.

While I normally agree with this...trion and syfy are not very smart to not think this one out.

I mean you have what...90% of your playerbase unable to watch the damn show as it airs, just offer us a way to pay and watch the show with everyone else either via tion or syfy....hell think of it as a perk only people who buy the game can receive (even if it costs additional).

Its going to suck watching the show a day later moving forward..

But yeah that illegal stream is too choppy to even enjoy watching and ive already missed 20 minuets...so I guess ill wait until tomorrow.

Realistically though...both companies need to get their stuff together and realize they could be making money on the show to all these people who don't have the syfy...

Still no Doc... but watching Irisa go feral almost made up for it. Deputy is either going to hit that or die in her arms. I called it during the pilot and still sticking to it.

Most of this episode was pretty meh, but the end scene with the music was totally worth it. As well as when the Casti voluntarily walked away with Datak. I kinda figured something like that was going to happen.

(Actually reminded me of some of WH13's more depressing scenes with the music.)

I'm hoping we get more Doc Yewll next week. :-\

That was much better than the pilot, though it obviously had its flaws (just because it's a nuclear power plant doesn't mean you can just flip the lights on after 30 years. That **** would have melted down decades ago).

Also noticed a possible game teaser in the pilot (that has probably been discusses to death already) where Amanda mentions her meeting with Ara Shondu about a mag-lev. It wouldn't fit very well into the world (Bay and Defiance combined don't have the resources to build it) but if they ever link the areas, that might be how they explain it or it could be how Trion gates the DLC expansion areas.

The guy that plays her son must have been like "Maaaaaannnnn... I hope this takes a couple of takes."

If Doc doesn't have any lines and/or Irisa doesn't 1v1 a Monarch with her bare hands next Monday... I'm going to cancel my preorder of Defiance 2. If and when it's ever announced in the future, of course.

And how odd is it going to be to have two Jaime Murray shows back-to-back on Mondays? I mean, it's going to be cool, don't get me wrong ... But it's going to be interesting having to flip the switch between Stahma Tarr and H.G. Wells. (Who wrote War of the Worlds. A copy of which Nolan picked up while underground.)

It is possible the entire universe could have been a Grazbi induced hallucination of Von Bach's genius mind. Given the Nim encounter during the main storyline of the game though I can't imagine he hates himself that much.

I very much enjoyed the second episode, "Down In The Ground Where The Dead Men Go." The pace might have felt a bit slow after the breathless introduction of everything in the pilot, but I thought that helped. With the characters introduced, we were able to focus on just a few this time.

I'm actually not sure which plot line was the A and with was the B plot line had about equal screen time. But let's call the Casti ritual plot line A. For that one, I liked some of the questions is posed about different groups trying to live together. Where is the line between preserving traditions and respecting other cultures and holding the whole group to certain standards and laws? Now, the show sort of gave themselves an easy out here. It's too bad that they didn't let the Casti ritual have more merit and thus make the moral quandary more gray. By making the ritual a torture, I feel like we're a bit too easily put on Irisa, Nolan, Amanda and Tommy's side. It doesn't help that Datak is sort of the villain here. I did think they made a pretty good show of explaining the Casti was of looking at things, though, even if the audience sympathies are pretty clear.

As for the B-plot of chasing Ben into Old St. Louis, it provided some nice visuals, to be sure. But even more I liked the chance for Nolan to bond with Rafe McCawley. I didn't think much of Rafe or most of the McCawley's, to be honest, but I thought they acquitted themselves well here, especially Rafe. I really came to like him more, and be more impressed with the performance overall. I did think it was a bit dumb of Nolan not to realize what Ben would do (how does an Indogene have a name like Ben, btw... wonder what his story is...) after McCawley decided not to kill him. But I was intrigued about the hints of what Rafe did to his wife, and the fact that his beloved son really wasn't so pristine clean... and wanted to get away from him.

It's hard to deny that both story lines didn't have quite the climax I might have hoped for. But I was still entertained and enjoyed getting to know these characters more. I am very intrigued by what happened to Irisa to make her hate chains and get her those scars. Maybe that's why she was glad Nolan killed her parents? One other note - definite improvements on the production standpoint. Alac's (and pretty much all the Castithan hair) looked much better, for one. And, weirdly, the town felt much more "real" to me this time. It seemed a bit more lived in than in the pilot.
