Defiance Season 2: Launch Trailer


Sledgstone

It's time to take back the town in the return to Syfy's groundbreaking series, Defiance. Season 2 premieres Thursday, June 19 at 8|7c on Syfy.

I really liked the first season and I hope season 2 picks up the pace and incorporates some aspects of the game like the EGO system, Nim, the 99ers, Dark Matter, infector weapons, etc. Considering its a series that is connected to a game.. there are very few actual connections between the two properties. It almost feels likes its the same world but to different realities.

Considering how surprisingly good the first season was I'm hoping this season is just as good and it's about damn time. I've been going nuts waiting for this to start back up. Really want to know what happened with Irisa after everything went down the way it did.

 

It's not surprising the game and show aren't really connected since the game takes place in whats left of San Fransisco (it does doesn't it? I mean the Golden Gate Bridge is on the cover of the damn game). It's be hard to connect the two since they're on other sides of the continent from each other. I wouldn't know much outside of what my friend was telling me since he plays it and watches the show (he told me there was a few connections but they were the ones you already mentioned in the last topic). Would be rather interesting if this season does connect the two together, are there any big events being planned in-game currently with the release of the new season so near?

The only game tie in that I know of at this point was some contest somebody won that will get their picture on the show in some random scene which sounds pretty weak. Other than that I haven't played the game in months now. It seems like Trion is struggling with releasing the dlc for the game than promoting any cross over potential.

Is this the same show with a really really bad season finale or am I getting confused with another series? 

 

Its the same series, I'm pretty certain you hated the show so I wouldn't recommend season 2 for you. :soul:

And you were OK with the show's ending and the cop-out let's-kill-but-conveniently-revive-Nolan-so-the-kill-in-the-first-place-didn't-matter-at-all thing?! And that's barring other really dumb plot holes and bad writing! I'll watch the last episode and give you a recap :

That's ok, I was fine with the way it ended. :P It definitely would have been a more powerful season finale if Nolan's death was permanent tho.

Season 2 has started and after 2 episodes I'm enjoying it. Its good to see some actual technology in Defiance too. The higher up E-Reps are completely corrupt, but I think that will lead to better plot lines than what we would have gotten with "Mayor Datak."

 

Irisa walks off to kill random people now.. well then.. I wonder how well thats going to work out for her in Defiance seeing as Nolan will end up having to solve those murders.

Hmmm, definitely an interesting start to the season with those two eps (yea I'm slow, lot of crap going on).

 

I'm happy to see Stahma finally grew a pair (persay) and has finally shown us her true colors. I really wish we would of seen more of it last season but I'm really happy to see it now. I really want to know where this Irisa story is going because this random killing people for no apparent reason is confusing the crap out of me. Quite honestly I'm surprised Nolan was offered his job back considering his past. I just wonder how Tommy is going to take it when he finds out (seems to really like his new job, would hate for him to lose it even if he isn't the right man for the job).

 

I'm also extremely happy to see Datak in jail. I really don't like him and hope something bad happens to him on the inside.

The last couple episodes have been very good. Datak got out of jail and attacked his family.. and now after tonight's episode they got their revenge. I'm surprised they didn't outright kill him. I think it was a bad choice to let him live. This show has gotten much more graphic.. the attack in the bath, the mayor getting violated with urine.. side boob, brutal beatings.. This season is really keeping my attention.

I have yet to watch last nights episode (apparently 8 central means 9 my time, when did this happen because I'm an hour behind them) but last Thursdays episode was really something.

 

So apparently instead of killing these people Irisa is saving them? I must of missed something because I'm confused as all hell right now and whats with these weird ass flashbacks that shes having? Were those her real parents she's seeing? Gah, so many questions and not enough answers yet. Was rather interesting to see how Nolan was taking these changes in Irisa. You can really tell he cares for her but he just doesn't know what to do.

 

And what the hell, I thought Sukar died last season. Did I miss something because I could of sworn they dunked him in the acid bath thing after the nano-machines went offline?

 

Datak getting out of jail wasn't a real shocker but I'm still surprised they let him out, even with Doc Yewll's backing. I had to laugh at the end of the episode when Datak was going off on them. Not like they didn't deserve it but honestly it was quite hilarious. Kinda curious to see what happens now that you said they get their revenge. Might have to watch the episode tonight before work if I remember too.

 

I like how this show is taking a much darker turn. I mean last season was fun and all but it lacked the drama this season is putting forth. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some pretty major characters bite the bullet before the end of this season.

In those flash backs I think those are Irisa's parents and my theory is that the ship in those memories crash landed and is located under defiance in that cave Irisa went to at the end of season 1. If that is the case it would explain why the e-reps are so intent on drilling the hell out of the mines at a substantial monetary loss. If they can get a mostly intact votan ship, it would be huge.

Sutar.. I remember the acid bath and then he woke up while in it.. then saved defiance because he had some arc tech in his brain controlling him.. then Nolan shot him and he apparently fell to his death off of the arch. But he somehow survived and was comatose. I think he woke back up again at the end of the season when Irisa jumped in the hole. But they never mentioned anything about that and Irisa walls right up to him like it was any other day 2 eps ago.. so wtf. This guy is like jesus or something.

But then Irisa killed him with the metal crap from her mouth. And it looks life she is killing them because when they showed Sukar again he was looking at his own dead body? So I guess she is making clones? :confused:

I re-watched the end of ep 3 and actually I think that's the original Sukar. Right before they pan to him sitting his apparently dead corpse starts breathing again and blinks. I could be wrong but that's what it looks like so if she's not making clones she's making something else. Either this metal crap is re-wiring them to follow Irzu's commands (as seen by that Casti chick going after the Casti kid) or something bigger is going on.

 

If that was her parents then why were they on that ship because it that's the ship under Defiance then they were in an extremely powerful warship if everything we been told so far is true. Everything they've told us and the way Yewll was acting last season makes me think this won't end well if that ship is ever recovered.

 

I also finally did get around to watching last weeks episode and I have to say I'm quite happy to see Datak get the snot kicked out of him. Such a cocky bastard but Stahma is going to regret letting him live. He might not currently have a crew but with what happened to Rafe I can see him joining up to help retake the town now.

 

This season is really starting to get good. I don't want to get my hopes up (like I did with Almost Human) but if keeps along these lines I can definitely see another season getting greenlit.

This last episode with Amanda, Niles and Yewll having hallucinations was ok, but not the best episode so far. It felt like the episode was dedicated to the LGBT community. This show seems to want to push the envelope on all subjects now. lol. I thought it was a bad batch of the "Blue Devil" drug that caused the hallucinations, but when doc Yewll was revealed to be seeing things too, then I didn't understand wtf was going on. This show really has nothing in common with the actual free to play game now. The way the EGO device was described seems way off from what it actually is in the game. Why would they need Amanda's memories? Why would anything in her life or past have anything to do with the ongoing plot line of the device in Irisa? hmmm.. maybe there is another story they haven't revealed yet. This could have been a transition episode to get Amanda off the Breaking Bad Blue Crystal Meth.. err.. "Blue Devil" and to break off her relationship with Nolan. She was a strong character in the first season, but now she is a drug addict running a brothel. She definitely needs to regain her composure.

 

I think they show developers realized how different the show is from the game (its like they are alternate versions of the same reality) so Syfy made a website that has weekly graphic novel episodes that is supposed to coincide with the show.. I haven't tried it yet, but I figured it was worth a mention:

The next episode preview showed an arch fall and a robot warrior. It should be a good episode if it has some action in it.

I finished watching the 2 episodes that aired back to back tonight. Next Thursday is the 2 hour season finale. So far the show has not yet been renewed for a season 3, so I hope the finale is good and at least finishes up the Irisa / Irzu thing.

 

Some things in the last handful of epsiodes don't make sense to me. I thought Niles wanted the doctor out of the jail because he saw her secret research about the metal filiments / Irzu that is in Irisa and wanted to use that power for his own advantage. But no.. he wanted her to use the human dna grafted onto the indogene host technique so that they could clone Amanda's sister.. and then they needed to put the ego device in Amanda's head to get her memories to then put into the cloned sister's head.. all of this elaborate scheming just so he could somehow hook up with her? This was one of the worst plot lines I've seen in a while. :confused:

 

But then Niles wants the doctor brought to justice for her crimes.. but if anyone actually catches her she could easily implicate him in the whole mess. Also, Datak was released from prison on Yewll's behalf because he was supposed to be her protector or something. Now that the doctor is wanted again, shouldn't that have recinded Datak's parole? Yet he is still free.. I kind of wish this season left that entire clone plot line out all togther and focused more on the political matters or some outside danger again like in season 1. It would have been a bit more interesting to me. I kept thinking it would all somehow tie into the main plot line, but it really didn't and it felt like filler in hindsight.

 

The last couple episodes were much better. Nobody knew who killed that woman, lmao. That was great.

 

And now the season finale is going to be the "Votan Rapture" as Nolan called it. Should be interesting and I look forward to seeing how the season ends. Hopefully if a third season does happen, then they get some better plot lines.

Season 2 has ended and I'm somewhat pleased with how they finished the Irzu story arc. They definitely left it open for a season 3, but I don't see how they'd bring Nolan and Irisa back into it at this point. If they make a season 3, I'll watch it.

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
