  • Bizarre start

    6.5
    Not sure what their angle was here, but this first episode was poorly constructed after the good finale from last season. We see defiance in disarray and Amanda in funeral dress nine months after her sister has gone "missing". Tommy is now SS Lawkeeper for the ERep.

    Nolan goes after Irisa who is across the country. It's hard to know exactly what happened to Irisa, but I am sure they will explain that over the season. The new mayor is a creeper. Stahma has lost almost all her charm by deciding to be a jerk power player. I think it was a mistake to fast forward 9 months. Hopefully the season gets better as it stabilizes.moreless
  • disappointing start to the series

    disappointing start to the series, after a good finale, I expected the show to pick up on the same note it left off.
  • Great start!

    This was an interesting series premiere with a lot having changes when we move on nine months from where we left off. My memory of the first season is somewhat vague, I don't remember all the details, but this episode was easy enough to follow.



    The most interesting stuff within the episode is the stuff with the Earth Republic, which I am very much looking forward to! Amanda will surely play a role in all that. Trouble is also brewing in the mines!



    Meanwhile Datak is imprisoned and Stahma is taking over which is interesting. Also Joshua & Irisa are on their way back home!



    Looking forward to more!moreless
