Yes you read that correctly. There is a zombie threat in Defiance. Well, it looks like there is an outbreak of hemorrhagic fever in the Defiance game, which makes the victims certainly look and sound like zombies, and there is a threat that the plague may make it to Defiance the town, featured in Defiance the show.
To explain it better, here’s the trailer from the Defiance game:
Trailer: Defiance – The Plague
We’ll have to wait and see if that fever gets contained or if we’ll be seeing some crossover drama in the remaining five episodes this season. That’s five including tonight’s, for which you can prepare by watching the “Shooting the Shtako” featurette discussion between showrunner Kevin Murphy and the newly-adventurous Stahma, Jaime Murray; the TV spot for the new episode; and the first three and a half minutes of the episode, which Syfy continues to refer to as “four minutes”:
Featurette: Defiance – Shooting the Shtako: Episode #107
TV Spot: Defiance – Episode #108
Clip: Defiance – Episode #108: First Three and a Half Minutes
Why yes, that is Brian J. Smith (SGU Stargate Universe)!
Defiance, starring Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, and Jesse Rath, airs Mondays at 9/8c on Syfy.
