Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

Something that just occurred to me, where did this prison camp that's apparently within a day's drive from Defiance come from? In season 1 everyone was being sent to prison in Vegas, even Nolan's bounty hunter friend was to be sent there when he was arrested by E-Rep. And now there's an E-Rep run prison practically next door to the town.

It's just fences and tents and prefab buildings. They've had an entire army there for months and lots of forced labor from the prisoners. It's not like it's that hard to build.

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

I was wondering if there was already a thread on this, but thanks for starting.

I thought Nolan was dead at the end of the first season, but Irisa obviously did something to resurrect him. If she fell into the bright light inside the cave, what happened to her body? She apparently survived the ordeal, and thus Nolan had been out looking all over for her for nine months.

The new mayor who looks like Robert Downey Jr. seems likeable so far, but if he's an E-Rep representative, he's got to be devious like Datak Tarr. I would like to see this new guy as a person I'd love to hate.

I thought the Liberata were supposed to be subservient, but the hairy alien who had Nolan beat up in old L.A. was some kind of boss.

Stahma is one sexy mother. "Dad would go I-rath if he saw you using Ereshkewa [?] in the bath."

Good show!

Did they subtly change Arisa's face makeup this season? She looked less "alien".
I totally noticed that too!! It is like how they de-ridged B'Elanna. And there was some other show with a female character who was almost unrecognizable after they decided to make her more pretty human and less alien though what it is I can't recall atm.
Dureena Nafeel from "Crusade". The network told the producers to tone it down and they did (they also told them to make her a nymphomaiac or something; thankfully they didn't). In any case, she may well have not been wearing any makeup after they changed the appliance on her head.

The premiere set up a nice tone for things going forward. It's clear to me that Arisa is staying away of her own will so she WON'T hurt Nolan, but is resigned to coming back now to hopefully figure things out.

I understand that Defiance is now free-to-play for the masses... Anyone here actually tried it? I get motion sickness with FPS games.

Re: Defiance Season 2 Discussion

ah I remember that from Crusade but I think there was a SG-1 female alien that had her makeup changed too, to make her prettier.

Free to play eh, might try it out though FPS is not my thing.

Any ideas what these kill fantasies and shadow self thing is with Arisa?

I kinda felt like Nolan got pudgier and his voice less gruff than last season. Maybe it's the actor needing to settle back into character or something.

Obviously this guy goes against the grain for that species.

I had been assuming it was a manifestation of Irzu and/or some kind of AI from the Kalvar (the thing they put in Irisa) or Kaziri (the thing she jumped into).
As for the game, it's a third person shooter, not an FPS. I didn't realize it was F2P, I might have to check it out now.

It's almost like they're individuals with their own individual motives and stuff.

You might as well get upset whenever you see a skinny American or a German hippie.

New episode tonight:
TV Guide wrote:
Irisa is arrested upon her return to Defiance, but Nolan can arrange her release by capturing those responsible for an explosion that nearly killed Mayor Pottinger. Meanwhile, Stahma decides the only way to stay in control of her family's criminal enterprises is by ensuring that Datak stays behind bars.
