Linda Hamilton is playing Rafe's ex-wife. 'Nuff said.
Be Careful Who You Trust
Are we totally naive? We didn't see Irisa's betrayal of Tommy coming. Perhaps it's not really a betrayal, giving Irisa's POV is that she's saving Tommy. Still, it was surprising.
Ambassador Tennety brought a serious case of the bitch upon her return to Defiance, but Amanda gave as good as she got (Best line from Amanda, in response to Tennety's offer of as job as her secretary: "Thank you. I already work with prostitutes."). They are the Krystle and Alexis of 2047! Tennety is totally Alexis. Also, we hope everyone got that reference.
Love And Psychosis In the Time of Defiance
Treasure Doll is unstable and determined to get Alak for herself. In other words, she's great television. Also, she has great hair. Anyway, her confrontation with Alak was intense and proved there's clearly more to come.
What the frack is going on with Irisa? It's up in the air at this point, but the image of all her "acolytes" being sucked down into the Kaziri (the huge, alien ship that lies under Defiance) was pretty mesmerizing. Also, Bertie's weird moaning/singing earns her a spot on the New Earth Voice, hands down.
