A bit of a rush in more ways than one
10 July 2013 | by pjrocksaSee all my reviews

The only criticism I would have about this season finale is it should have been a two hour episode. The pacing of this episode made it seem rather rushed. I won't go into detail so as not to spoil anything. I'd say this episode was a lot of fun but the previous one, "Past is Prologue," was much better, and set things up rather nicely.

I would think the writers will sit down over the next year and dwell further into the mythology surrounding the Votans. More interaction between the television series and the game is to be expected, as well as plugging a few additional plot holes. I'm sure we'll see more new characters and villains, characters returning (some in flashbacks) and a few leaving in order to advance the story. I very much look forward to Season 2 of Defiance.
