Important lessons on who not to mess with and 2046 uses of duct tape.
Kenya is either an environmentalist, fashion forward or just ran out of underwear (or all of the above), but we love the idea of a duct tape bra. However...does it hurt to take off?
Just Say No
Even in the future, the illegal drug trade is bad news, as the ultimate fates of Nico and Ulysses aptly demonstrate. Best to steer clear.
Can't Buy Me Love
If there's one thing Datak Tarr knows, it's that money only gets you so far. That's why his price for helping locate Kenya wasn't jaja - it was respect, and the power that comes with being a part of the town council.
Behind Every Bad Man...
Nolan's only starting to realize that, as dangerous as Datak is, it might be the Castithan's wife who truly has the gift for scheming. Counting someone out because they wear a nice dress and smile demurely is NEVER a good idea.
'Cause Little People Know
It's as true now as it ever was in Victorian England - when you're in a slum and you need a vital piece of information, just seek out a plucky street urchin, and you're good as gold. Just be sure to have something shiny to bribe him with.
Know Your Saints
It may be hard to believe this, but back before the Internet, when someone you trusted told you a fact, you just believed them without checking snopes.com. In Defiance's post-Internet world, it's much the same, which is why Kenya went most of her life believing falsely in a Saint Finnegan. Where have you gone, Wikipedia?
