Here are the five things we're still talking about....what about you? Tweet us using #Defiance!
1. When TUMS Isn't Enough
Here we thought we were getting a sexy S&M scene, and instead, we got the sudden shock of seeing a hellbug attack up close. As in, the bug came THROUGH HIS CHEST. It's like Ghoulies meets Alien meets 50 Shades of Grey.
2. The Warrior Tarr
We know Datak is a survivor and not averse to violence, but seeing him swagger away from an encounter with multiple hellbugs with only some ichor-stained clothes to show for it, we're more impressed with his skills than ever...and slightly intimidated.
3. Getting To Know You
We have yet to spend much time with Irathients outside of Irisa, but this week, we learned a lot about them: Their love of nature, their status as a people displaced in the name of progress, and the ability of some of them - like Irisa - to gaze into the unknown. Also, they like top hats.
Players of the Defiance game have encountered Hellbugs before, but this is the first time they've appeared on the show, and our introduction to the beasties (and their queen, the Matron), did not disappoint.
5. Family Ties Undone?
We've seen Nolan and Irisa bicker, before, but it looks like, with the arrival of Sukar and his Spirit Riders, their relationship will be severely tested as the young Irathient begins to explore her past and her heritage (Irisa's "I'm an alien, and you made me ashamed of that!" rings through our ears). Is this the beginning of the end for them?
