    • I Just Wasn't Made for These Times

      I Just Wasn't Made for These Times was an intriguing episode of Defiance as moral questions were asked. It was great to learn a little tiny bit more about the bigger picture after Nolan discovers a strange remnant of the past which has its own secret. I liked how the Tarr storyline unfolded further. Stahma in the white room is always beautiful. Irisa is still upset with Nolan and I hope this gets more focus Lang from Earth Republic gave Amanda some interesting information. I liked how everything played out and look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!

    • ONe of the better ones!

      I really enjoyed this episode and it is one of my absolute favourites so far. It was really quite great with an intriguing storyline and very interesting developments particularly with the mayor, Amanda.

      Not crazy at all about the storyline with Kenya and Stahma, but fortunately there was enough interesting moments from the other storylines that made me really enjoy the episode.

      I also absolutely loved the ending! Great way to end the episode and now I'm fascinated to see how that all unfolds next week with a plague on the horizon! Can't wait!moreless
