    She will just guest star? So 1 episode?

  3. kirads09 says:

    YES! Love her. The orig Sarah Conner too.

  4. Liz says:

    Love her, but the season finale of Defiance last season made me give up on the show. I’d been patiently waiting for the show to get better and then it took that nose dive into obscure philosophical weirdness that just didn’t work for me.

    (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE) cancel this show? what the hell is the point?
