Well, it wasn't much a surprise that Doc was revealed to be an Evil Scientist during the Pale Wars, but I still like it.
And Zombies? Sure, why not?
As things are going now it will probably be revealed that it was all a biological weapon created by our dear Doc and all hell will break loose between the Votans and the Earth Republic and Defiance is caught in the middle.
This weeks Doc: "Cool it Tiger. I'm too old for you."
And the episode was channeling Star Wars a few times:
"You want me to join the evil empire?"
"We're not an empire! You will be given regional governership."
"Control your hatred!"
Oh, and I think Defiance is a bit bitter that it is not on HBO. There is a lot of bathing but since there can't be sex they'll talk alot about sex instead WHILE bathing.
