Have you been watching Syfy’s original drama Defiance? Based on the ratings, it seems like many of you have. Maybe you’ve been playing the online video game that accompanies the series. We know the show has been renewed for a second season, so they’re not going to go too crazy, like killing off everyone or blowing up the planet, but as we approach the conclusion of the freshman season, some of the characters are not long for this world.
A recent article over at TV Line reports that, within the last few episodes of season one, fans will witness “the death of two characters who’ve been with us from the start.”
While Defiance has a decent-sized cast, we’re not talking about a Game of Thrones scale call list here. HBO’s fantasy epic can drop a couple characters without missing a beat. Most shows, however, aren’t that lucky. Dropping two key players will cause some large ripples, to be sure, but we’ll have to wait and see exactly how big these deaths are. Are they the kind that will alter the show moving forward, or are they more of the momentarily shocking variety?
There is also talk of a “shocking secret,” one that will change the landscape of the Defiance world. All in all, it sounds like a promising conclusion to a first season.
Oh, and you’ll also get to “witness a Castithian bachelor party” before the season wraps up, which promises to be a shindig to behold indeed.
Have you been tuning in to Defiance? Any theories about who will die? Leave them below in the comments.
