    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.

    • 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

      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!!!!!!!!!

      So the Plague has come to Defiance, supposedly spread by Irathients (Which I'm Not Convinced It Is). So when the Amanda becomes ill, of course Stahma tells Amanda her loyal husband Datak will take over as Mayor until she gets better. Why Quentin did you give Nicky the so called Golden Knot, as Yewll said (Reshape Or Destroy), of course Nicky wants to destroy before she can create (Someone Should Have Given Her The Plague Without The Cure). Datak is now is running against Amanda to become the new Mayor of Defiance, before this episode, we always knew what Datak was like, now just more power hungry. Datak was a nobody in his own world, the lowest off the low in their cast system. (Therefore Who Ever Is Playing The Game, Please Stop Him And Get Rid Off Nicky). Another Fantastic Episode.moreless
