Defiance Season 2: Linda Hamilton Arrives in Defiance

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 18:51

Linda Hamilton - star of Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day (remember how ripped she got?) and the TV series Beauty and the Beast, among other work - is coming to Defiance!

She'll play Pilar McCawley, the long-missing wife of Rafe and mother to Christie (and thus an in-law to the Tarrs). Regular viewers will remember that Pilar (only spoken about before, never seen) had suffered from mental illness. In the aftermath of the aliens' arrival on Earth, her medication stopped being produced, leading to some dangerous and violent behavior (as in, she tried to kill her kids). Rafe banished her.

But that was then and this is Season 2. Pilar is coming back - but what's she been up to since she's been gone? What's her motivation for coming back? How will she and Stahma get along? And will she try to kill her kids again?

Remember, Defiance Season 2 commences on June 19 at 8/7c (overkill maybe, but we want to get the message across).
