    Defiance "If I Ever Leave This World Alive" Review: Boring Sickness

    A plague struck Defiance this week, but the show ignored anything really interesting in order to set up a plot point for the final run of episodes.

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    A plague strikes down the residents of Defiance. The people blame the Irathients and place them under quarantine, while Nolan and Connor must confront the E-Rep soldiers to get the cure.

    • Now we are getting somewhere

      8.5
      The show has potential. The episode manages to give us a nice little slice of quite a few characters. Information we didn't know before or just needed confirmation on. But it also manages to kill off a few extraneous characters that were just cluttering the narrative. The only slip up for this episode was the lack of emotion from Irisa about some of the deaths. Although maybe that will come in another episode. There are a lot of good story arcs coming in the background, but they will need a bit of massaging to get the most out of them.moreless
    • Where was the mayors sister?

      8.0
      I found it a little odd that the mayor was dying of the plague and her sister was nowhere to be seen? Apart from that, a great episode :)

      This was prehaps my favourite episode so far as scenes got very interesting with many different storylines emerging.



      The plague hit Defiance and a lot of things happened including a very interesting development at the top of the arch with Datak. As evil as he may be, his wife is quite a snake indeed, worming him into the temporary mayor position.



      What I also liked was the suspense because not one but multiple characters came down the sickness.



      The racial war is escalating as well because of the plague!



      Overall, it was a superb episode! I feel like here is what the show has been building towards and I can't wait to see what the next chapter unfolds!moreless

      9.0
      If I Ever Leave This World Alive was a superb episode of Defiance and I really enjoyed watching because there was lots of action, character development and intrigue. It was interesting to see various conflicts arise because of the plague. It was great to see main characters step up their games. I liked how things played out and look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!
