Human-alien lesbian affairs! And the other stuff we're talking about.
Stahma and Kenya, Sitting in a Tree
There have certainly been sparks flying between a bunch of different characters in Defiance, but we'll admit that we never anticipated a pairing between the seemingly demure Stahma Tarr and the...well, not demure Kenya Rosewater.
The opening sequence of this episode followed Ark debris from orbit all the way through its descent as Razor Rain, and it made for a captivating and brutal action scene. Anything wicked enough to take out Sukar...
Sukar's sudden return from death in the midst of his Irathient funeral ritual was a shocker, to say the least. It ended up only being nanites that reanimated him but, at the time, it seemed like something supernatural was going on. Call TAPS!
Sure, we've seen Mayor Nicky plotting against the town, but we've never seen her in as full-on evil mode as we did this episode when she confronted Rafe in his house. Cancer or no, this is not a woman you want to mess with.
Nolan vs. Sukar
Two of Defiance's he-men, battling it out one-on-one with the fate of the town potentially hanging in a balance. It was a fight so epic that it could only end with one of the combatants plunging from the top of the St. Louis arch.
