Part One of the two part second season finale of Defiance opens with Stahma and Datak kidnapped and left to awake chained together in the bottom of an abandoned silo. Good Tommy, still suffering from the stab wound he received from Irisa at the end of the last episode, is relentlessly pulled through the snowy woods surrounding Defiance by Nolan, determined to get him the medical help he needs. Throughout the night, flashbacks of Tommy are peppered throughout the episode, queued by his visions of friends standing in the silence of the snow filled woods. Meanwhile, Irisa takes control of Votan terraforming satellites hovering in the debris field above Earth and annihilates New York City. Lastly, Mayor Pottinger offers Amanda a surprise gift with unexpected results.
