  • Datak is out!

    9.0
    Too much Irisa in this episode. The only saving grace, and the one thing that made this episode brilliant, is that Datak is out!
  • Very interesting!

    Another great episode whihc had some big develipments on a few fronts. Amanda is in a state and things are developing with her and the new mayor, whil e Christie has some big news of her own.



    Irisa's storyline was interesting - it's still a bit confusing and bit unclear but gradually things are presenting themselves and it is interesting to follow.



    But what I really enjoyed was the last scene! Powerfully done and I think that sets the tone for the next one. Looking forward to it!moreless
  • Never Seen Amanda ln This State Before.

    Well the good news is that Christie is pregnant and the bad news is that Datak wants to know if Stahma is really running things and he asks if his men are following her commands. Alak says they're getting used to it and Datak says she's keeping him there so she can stay in control (which is true). Alak comes home and see's Stahma counting their money (mostly hers), Stahma wants to give Alak one thing his father brought from Casti a short laser knife, she gives it to Alak to protect something of his own, his wife and child. Stahma also knows that he went to see his father Datak (Stahma really knows everything that goes on) and she says we both know, we can never allow him to come home. So with Mayor Niles making a deal with Yewll, giving her parole under his watchful eye back in Defiance and asks if she can do what Irisa was talking about and she says she would need funding and an assistant that she can trust. Datak tells Yewll later that Niles can't be trusted and Yewll basically struck a deal so that Datak is released to protect her. Amanda is doing some serious drugs, gets into a knock down drag out fight with a customer and Nolan drags her off before she kills him and notices her pupils are dilated, she pushes him away and says she's fine. Niles finds Amanda in his office looking like she is going through withdrawls, she wanted to say she wasn't judging him about the adreno, so Niles takes his own stash out and they both partake together. Irisa what is going on with you, you seek Sukar's guidance and to be honest, i have no idea what is going on, you kill Sukar and then yourself and Irzu wont let you die. Then everyone you have killed is alive, including Bertie, this has something to do with the Mothership. Then at the end Datak comes home, tries to kill Stahma and Alak. Fantastic Episode.moreless
