TV Recap: Into The Badlands (S02 E02)

It’s about time Sunny got free!

The episode starts with the best thing about this show – the martial artistry. Sunny and his Baije (his new friend) trickishly and conveniently fight their way out of Bordo mines.

Maije and Sunny.

M.K. is still getting closer towards learning to control his gift. The Master introduces him to his greatest enemy – his dark self – and tries to prepare him yo be independent of it. I must say, presently, M.K. happens to be the most powerful being in this world… and that’s a great feat especially since he’s being trained by someone called The Master. M.K. did battle his alter-ego inside his head, and lost. The warning The Master gave to him still rings in my head – she said, whatever force M.K. was using was the one in control of his power and not him; encouraging him to take charge.
Quinn is still as terrifying as how we remember him. He seems to have a liking for Sunny’s wife, Veil, and her son whom he christines Henry. Quinn has this underground activity going on at their hideout, and its proving to be a very grand one. He’s raising some sort of an army for acts yet to be known. Though he displays some elements of higher brow craziness, Quinn is quite likeable in this episode.

Meanwhile, Quinn’s wife, Lydia, makes a return in this episode. She found herself among men and women who abhor violence to the core, even at the point of death; the kind of people who scold you for killing someone who would have killed them; it’s no surprise when she leaves them.no questions asked. But, with her son, Jaden, not fully appreciating her return because it immediately signals her resolve to interfering with his ruling as the new Baron, she’s left conflicted.

Have I mentioned that Widow is hot! She makes an appearance during the last four minutes of the episode, as she deliberates with a newly returned Waldo over how the other Barons will be handled now that Ryder is calling a meeting, probably to incite them against her.

The final reveal of the episode is a bigbig deal. Sunny discovers there is a far stretch of wall preventing people from gaining easy access into the Badlands.

I must say, Into the Bad land’s sophomore season shows so much promise at this stage that I can bet it will be a bigger success than its first season.

Into the Badlands airs Sundays on AMC.
