Defiance Season 2 Retrospective

Command postThe second season of Syfy’s Defiance has ended, with a pretty good two episode finale. While I tend to focus on small moments in my reviews of each episode, I’d like to stop and look back now at the season as a whole. I feel this is the best way to gauge the quality of it, as things that didn’t really seem to contribute much before may have more to offer in hindsight. So, let’s take a look at some of the running storylines of the season and the new things that were added to try to see what worked and what didn’t.

Needless to say, this is 100% spoilers. Proceed only if you’ve finished the season!

Mystery ManIt seems like answers are finally on the way in regards to Irzu and the Kaziri, but some more returning faces steal the spotlight this week (and if you read the SDCC panel breakdown, you know exactly who) and with them just comes more questions.

Defiance S2E7 Review: If You Could See Her Through My Eyes

MordecaiRemember what I said about Defiance taking one step forward and one random step? This week is the perfect example.

They aren’t the only things returning, however… read on for more.
