defiance season 1 finale 'Defiance' Season 1 finale: The Earth Republic takes controlThe “Defiance” Season 1 finale was full of unexpected twists — what did you think?

We’ll admit it. For a second there, we thought Nolan was dead. Luckily, he is not but what has happened to Irisa, embracing her fate and entering into the mines? What iteration do you think we can expect from her character in Season 2?

Meanwhile, Datak Tarr has won the mayoral race against Amanda Rosewater and seems to be merely a puppet for the Earth Republic. Until he slaughters the Colonel. Oops. As the Earth Republic’s tanks and troops roll into town in the final frames, we have a feeling that incident will be revisited in Season 2.

And speaking of Datak, we’re also quite curious to see what becomes of Kenya Rosewater. We do so love her chemistry with Amanda — such a nice dichotomy, light and dark, Darla and Isobel.

What did you think of the Season 1 finale, “Defiance” fans?
