Last night, Irisa challenged Datak Tarr by stopping the ceremonial torture of a Castithan who had run from a battle. Nolan and Rafe took a team to Old St.Louis, which is underneath Defiance, to search for Rafe’s son Luke’s killer.

Christie was having second thoughts about marrying Alak Tarr so soon, but his mother convinced her that love conquers all fears. (Of course, Alak’s parents only encourage the marriage because they want access to the McCawley mines).

The former mayor, Nicky, plans to destroy (Defiance or the Votans?) in order to reclaim Earth.

Amanda’s ability to run the town is challenged by Datak and others, and a fight almost ensues. Datak makes a great show of mercy, only to murder the Castithan deserter overnight and leave him to be found by Mayor Amanda and her team.

Rafe goes through his deceased son’s things and finds a large gold item that looks like jewelry but is obviously something much more important. 

NEXT WEEK: We learn more about Irisa’s visions.
