    Defiance "Past Is Prologue" Review: All the Pieces in Place

    I'd been looking forward to this election episode, and I was pretty happy with how all the various schemes played out.

    • I can't wait for the finale!

      Brilliant episode, I can't wait for the finale! Datak gets more evil each week, but I have a strong feeling he's not totally behind this plot. Stahma, I think, is the real one behind the whole idea. I felt sorry for Dataks son, I credited his father in law with more brains then to not know the poor boy was used. The whole thing with the sneaky doctor is boring and drawn out, I hope this particular storyline ends in the finale, I'd hate to go another season of her sneaking around and doing sneaky stuff that we don't know or care about. Just stop with the sneakyness already!moreless

      Into the penultimate episode of the first season now, and Defiance has been getting better and better for many weeks now. Today is no exception. There were so many fascinating scenes as stroylines developed. The mayoral race took several interesting urns and the character of Kenya got a whole lot more interesting and fierce!



      The ending was supenseful as well, with Irisa in grave danger. I anticipate a breathtraking season finale. This one was immense! Cannot wait or more!moreless

      Just when i thought Tommy and Irisa were getting it on, what is Yewll doing with the Golden Knot at this point whether its good or bad i dont know, Irisa is somehow connected to it. As for Stahma no surprise here when she told lies to Kenya that Datak is going to kill Amanda, maybe at some point he will. As for Kenya going to see Stahma and telling her you set me up and she is going to tell everybody and Datak, i hope Kenya screams their sexual relationship they had from the highest mountain top. What Rafe did to Alak, i really want that message sent back to Datak and i also want all the corruption of Datak and the Earth Republic made known. Otherwise how else could Datak receive sealed documents about Nolan's past if he didn't get it from the Earth Republic. As for the fight scene with Nolan and Datak i wish it went longer, but Irisa had the final say by kicking Datak in the head. Like Amanda said to Nolan thats not who are, its who you were and i really dont want Nolan to leave. Another Fantastic Episode and i think the season finale is next week. Thumbs Up. Just One Last Thing, Thanks To Everyone Who Is Playing The Game. Makes it interesting.moreless
