Defiance is big on character development this week, but is its story actually heading anywhere? Here's Billy's review...
This review contains spoilers.
1.7 Goodbye, Blue Sky
The theme of this week's Defiance was things that come back from our past to haunt us, as represented by the storm of 'razor rain', falling on the town. This serves a dual purpose, to glue characters together so they can interact without others interrupting, and as an external force that reminds Irisa that she's not human, like looking in the mirror isn't a clue. The messengers for that are pieces of an Arc spacecraft infused with nanites and Sukar, who was one of the more interesting alien characters the show has thrown up. After Revolution, nanites are becoming a direct replacement for explaining the inexplicable, but here they're blended with a little Irathient mysticism for good measure.
