ally barone

Quinn’s ability to hear whispers is sounding supernatural, does he have ears stationed at the door or have bugs planted he can hear what Veil and Lydia are saying? I love that the girls are allied together and Lydia came to the rescue for little Henry, poor mite. Being punished as well because his mother dared to defy Quinn, the babe even gave a tiny burn of his own, crying in Quinn’s arms only to stop for several moments when he’s in Lydias. Hope they all make it, Lydias one of the family now. 

Sunny and Waldo’s talk was really good, Sunny asking Waldo if he ever thought of fighting for himself, to be his own man shows great character development. Waldo tho is still pragmatic he gives tact and logical advice to Sunny to remember his training and calling him Sunshine at the end was lovely. The look in Waldo’s eyes doesn’t think he’ll see his former colt again it kind of felt like closure for the two. 

Quinn’s going on emotional abuse again trying to get Veil to submit being his “family” like henry “has” and putting words in Gabe’s mouth to get Sunny to react in the way he wants. 

I knew Sunny would be betrayed, widows a baron through and through and now she’s also hunting him giving her conversation with Tilda later. Sunny leaving MK with her for protection wasn’t a good idea but hoping Bajie does the right thing and gets MK out of there like Sunny asked him to. The lone warrior shot of Sunny walking the road with his badass longcoat swirling was awesome. 

Parallels galore 

I loved the confrontation with Minerva and Tilda. Widow even using Quinn’s words to Sunny from last season and Tilda calling her by her name to her face in defiance. Tildas uncompromising like widow thought herself to be once and Minerva using emotional words either out of mixed love and manipulation is still trying to justify herself because she can’t get out of this now and she knows it. Waldo asking for Tilda next week is going to be a wipeout I think. He cares about her, same way he does Sunny. Maybe he might even take Sunnys words to heart to fight for himself, to do the right thing. 

Veil slapping Quinn and her terrific burn,why waste my breath on a dead man had me cheering! You go girl!

Odessa’s a little rat. 

Sunny and bajies hug they’ve come far those boys.

Next week: SUNNY VS QUINN!!!

I was watching Into The Badlands behind the scenes of 2.08 on the One Demand Channel (cable). I spoke about this channel before. It’s great to hear what tptb are trying to convey each episode. Marton Csokas speaks of Quinn offering Lydia and Henry refuge by them becoming a family. Madeleine Mantock also speaks of Veil having no choice but to try to kill Quinn because if Quinn had impregnated Veil there was no getting out of that. It makes me believe that Veil plays the game very well. I recall her telling Lydia that she wouldn’t be able to consummate a marriage to Quinn, the man that killed her parents. Which makes me feel Veil could marry Quinn but not see it through all the way because of the consequences of becoming pregnant. If Veil had killed Quinn by all rights she would be baron. Veil is alot smarter than people give her credit. Aramis Knight spoke about MK still feeling a bit of betrayal by Sunny telling everyone a secret he’s always tried to hide and Ally Ioannides speaks of the joy and relief Tilda felt seeing MK and her being shocked by seeing Veil at Quinns and the truth hits Tilda. All and all good stuff and lovely to hear what they’re trying to convey.
