    Season 2 Episode 2 - "Force of Eagle's Claw" - March 26, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    After Bajie betrays Sunny, The Engineer decides he doesn't like a "rat" for a Picker so he sends them to the fighting pit to battle his champion Mouse. Fortunately, the arena is unguarded. They defeat their foe, make it to the exit and escape through the mine's ventilation system. They find themselves in the Outlying Territories with a wall separating them from the Badlands. Meanwhile, Tilda learns how to be a proper Regent from Waldo who is working for The Widow. Lydia is living with Penrith and his Totemists. All is peaceful until Nomads interrupt a wedding, looking for goods. Lydia takes it upon herself to save the religious group by killing all the bandits herself, resulting in her father's disapproval of his non-violent beliefs. She is once again cast out and returns to Ryder who doesn't receive her kindly. Also, The Master sends M.K. to her room of mirrors in order to conquer his inner demon; himself. Later, while hiding out in the West Avalon train station, Quinn performs a bloody baptism on Veil's son, Henry, who he proclaims is the Badlands newest heir.
    Veil saved Quinn after all the trouble Sunny went to kill him and she knows he had her parents murdered, huh!

    Lydia kicks ass and yet can't find a place for herself. Her son, Ryder is such a douche.

    OMG! It's Trumps Wall, at least that was what I was thinking when I saw it.

    Season 2 Episode 3 - "Red Sun, Silver Moon" - April 2, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    While wandering the Outlying Territories, Sunny and Bajie find a bridge that leads into the Badlands. But its guarded by a stranger and they've been followed by bounty hunters. The stranger lends them a helping hand and gives them shelter. They learn he's the legendary Clipper Regent Nathaniel Moon, "Silver Moon", who, like Sunny, left the Badlands to live a violence-free life. After he fell in love with a warlord's daughter, he started a family, but they were murdered. Now he hunts fugitives, returning to his violent ways. He tries to convince Sunny that men like them never change. Meanwhile, The Widow asks Waldo to be her Second at the Baron conclave instead of Tilda, but she is put her in charge if she doesn't return. Veil lies to Quinn about his diagnoses on the malady in his head by switching out his x-rays with healthy ones. M.K. discovers the Abbotts are up to something when his friend Tate is experimented on, draining his abilities. Later, Moon still searching for his 1,000th kill mark, sees Sunny as a worthy opponent. He challenges Sunny to a fight to the death, or put him out of his misery by ending his life. However, Sunny continues on his quest to find his family and does not want to be his executioner; Bajie comes to his aid.
    The series is flowing even better than season 1, it draws you in, the pacing is good, MK story used to be the weakest but the actor has improved and there is more intensity in his story so you actually cared about what happened to him as opposed to season 1 when I was tempted to fast forward through his scenes.

    Season 2 Episode 4 - "Palm of the Iron Fox" - April 9, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    Quinn puts his plan in motion to start anew and sets off with his Clippers. Meanwhile before the conclave voting ceremony, The Widow tries to get Baron Chau on her side and thinks about her condition of pledging not to shelter anymore runaway Cogs at her Sanctuary. Later, M.K. takes one of The Master's opium-infused origami and returns to the room of mirrors, this time to find out what happened to his mother, but learns her blood is on his hands. When Quinn is off on his mission, Veil trapped at the transit station with lone Clipper Edgar, tries to escape with Henry in her arms by drugging him, however he blocks her only way out. During the conclave, the five remaining Barons vote The Widow in breach of the Foundation Treaty and is stripped of her baron title, and her lands and privileges are revoked. They give her 48 hours to vacate the Badlands. But she has no intention of giving it up and a baronial showdown is about to begin. That is until Quinn makes a dramatic entrance first and goes after Ryder, killing his son in the middle of his hedge maze. In the end, Tilda shows up at the melee and helps Waldo and her mother in their fight for a Cog-free world.
    Quinn is crazy, simply crazy and the tumor doesn't help.

    Ahhh, poor Viel she can't escape.

    MK ... he killed his mother??? and that is what blocks his control of his power???

    I think the Widow ruled this episode and they did a great job filming the major bloodbath fight scene.

    Re: Into the Badlands - AMC Sundays 10/9c

    Season 2 Episode 5 - Monkey Leaps Through Mist - April 16, 2017

    Quick Synopsis:
    Sunny and Bajie get help from an unlikely source, but it comes with a price. The Widow considers a risky gambit, while MK enacts a dangerous plan.
    Into the Badlands: Season 2, Episode 5 - AMC

    Recap:
    At Ryder's mansion, Jade stands over Ryder's corpse. Merrick, an armadillo Clipper, considers Quinn's actions to be "a declaration of war," and Jade states that as Ryder's "rightful and only successor," all powers now fall to her. Merrick administers the oath for Barons using Ryder’s sword, and Jade cuts herself on the blade to use her blood as part of her pledge. The Clippers kneel before her.

    Sunny and Bajie make it to Nos's compound so they can trade Nathaniel Moon's signature blade for passage through the tunnel. Sunny spots Mechs all around – the same tribe of people who sold him to the Bordo mines – and grows suspicious, but Bajie insists they need Nos. Nos greets Bajie as a "thieving bastard" and welcomes him warmly. Bajie introduces Sunny as one of the deadliest Clippers in the Badlands. They show off Moon's blade and Bajie implies that Sunny killed Moon for it. Nos says they've "come to the right man."

    Quinn and his men trek through the woods back to their train station bunker. Quinn hallucinates and imagines Ryder standing near a tree.

    At The Widow's Sanctuary, Tilda apologizes for disobeying the Widow and showing up to the conclave. The Widow says she wishes she listened to her own gut "instead of trying to play by someone else's rules." She thanks Tilda for saving her life and asks for a private moment with Waldo. Waldo insists he didn't know about Quinn, but thinks his reappearance buys them time, as the other Barons will be focused on hunting him down. He suggests "delivering his head on a platter" and becoming an ally to gain leverage in their fight, but the Widow scoffs at aligning with her enemies.

    At the Monastery, M.K. trains amongst the other Novices. After Ava signals the end of training, the novices make their way back, but M.K. uses the opportunity to run to the woods.

    At Nos's compound, Sunny and Bajie are treated like honored guests. Nos asks Sunny to name his favorite kill, but Sunny doesn't respond. Nos says he takes pride in his own work and his Dolls. He references a young girl, Amelia, and says he knows when she'll "be ripe." Nos mentions trouble "brewing" in the Badlands and explains how Quinn showed up at the Baron conclave and killed Ryder. Sunny is stunned at the news.

    Quinn studies his bloody hands in his office. Ryder appears in another hallucination and taunts Quinn for killing him. Ryder's apparition says Veil is lying about Quinn’s tumor being gone, but Quinn insists he's healing. "Then why am I here?" Ryder asks. Ryder suggests finding out the truth by threatening Henry.

    Armadillo Clippers bring Lydia to Ryder's mansion. Jade fills her in on Quinn's return and shows her to Ryder's body. Lydia weeps.

    Declan has Veil tied to a chair in the barbershop and interrogates her about Edgar's death. When he puts a knife to her throat, Veil claims self-defense from rape, but Declan doesn't buy it because, as he reveals, Edgar was gay. Declan decides to keep Veil alive since she's needed as a medic to heal Quinn. He shows her the X-rays she hid and demands she start actually healing Quinn's tumor.

    M.K. comes across a tree with the corpses of young men hanging from ropes. He cuts down one of the bodies and changes into the boy's clothes, then buries him.

    At Ryder's mansion, Lydia tells Jade of Ryder's difficult birth and mentions all her hopes and dreams being "wrapped up in just one" because she couldn’t have more children. Jade cites their shared love for Ryder and the need to avenge his death. Lydia knows where Quinn is hiding and requests to kill him herself.

    The Widow studies a map that depicts the Barons' territories. She removes an armadillo insignia pin and thinks.

    Nos sends some of his Dolls to please Bajie and Sunny in their tents. Amelia enters Sunny's tent and says her mother, Portia, is getting ready for him but notes he’s "not like the other men.” He mentions having a woman and baby already. Portia enters and dismisses Amelia. Sunny tells Portia he doesn't "need any company," but Portia fears being punished for disobeying Nos. Sunny allows her to stay to fool Nos. Portia shares her fears over Amelia's future and begs Sunny to kill Nos in exchange for payment. "All the marks on your back," she says. "What difference would one more make?" she implores. But Sunny refuses.

    Veil finds Quinn in his office, rocking Henry while holding a knife near Henry’s throat. Quinn asks Veil about his tumor, and she says he's healing. Ryder's apparition warns Quinn not to trust Veil and reminds Quinn that he killed Veil's parents. Veil watches as Quinn talks to the air and admits she once despised Quinn, but her feelings have changed for him. She kisses Quinn tenderly and promises they can be a family as she takes the knife from his hand. The Ryder hallucination scoffs at women being Quinn’s weakness.

    As Sunny and Bajie prepare to leave, Nos confronts Sunny about Portia's request to have him killed – information he overheard from the Doll in Bajie's room. Nos thanks Sunny for "not taking the honor," but shows off the slashes on Portia's face as her punishment. Nos deems Portia worthless as a Doll and mentions Amelia's potential. Sunny asks to take Portia and Amelia with him, as the sword he traded is worth more than just passage, but Nos declines the offer and jabs a knife into Portia's side while Amelia watches. Sunny refuses to leave without them and springs into action as Nos's Mechs surround him.

    Sunny battles the group of Mechs, flinging a hubcap into one of the Mech's throats in the process. As the fight ensues, Bajie carries Portia to the car Nos has provided for passage, but the keys are missing from the ignition. Nos prepares to kill Amelia with Moon’s sword, but Bajie steps in and knocks out Nos with a bat. Bajie then takes the car keys and ushers Amelia away. As more Mechs come at Sunny, Bajie throws Moon's sword to Sunny so he can finish the fight. Sunny, Bajie, Portia and Amelia escape from the compound in Nos's car.

    At the Widow's Sanctuary, the Widow tells Waldo she's decided to make an alliance with Quinn. "We tried it your way," she says. She instructs Waldo to find Quinn before the other Barons do.

    Quinn smokes opium while watching a film and sees Ryder's apparition again. Meanwhile, Lydia and the Armadillo Clippers close in on his hideout. As they rush in, a bomb goes off and they're sent flying from the blast. Quinn rushes through the station and finds Veil missing. Out in the woods, Veil escapes with Henry in her arms.
    Interesting how Jade, the young widow inherits the barony but not Ryder's mother (Lydia). Did like the bomb.

    Season 2 Episode 5 - "Monkey Leaps Through Mist" - April 16, 2017

    Wiki recap:

    With Ryder dead, the other surviving Barons have fled, going to ground. Jade, the only successor, is sworn in as Baron by her Regent, Merrick, and declares war. She then turns to Lydia for help in finding Quinn. However, Lydia has one condition; she gets to kill Quinn herself. Meanwhile, Bajie takes Sunny to Nos, the Commandant of the Mechs, or metal traders, to trade Silver Moon's sword for a shortcut back into the Badlands. Sunny learns from the leader that Quinn's still alive. During their overnight stay, a Doll named Portia visits Sunny asking him to kill Nos so her young daughter Amelia will not lead a life of prostitution. He refuses at first, but after seeing Portia's face mutilated and her stabbed, he and Bajie steal their ride, bringing mother and daughter with them. Also, while training, M.K. escapes the Abbotts and disguises himself with clothes from a corpse that was hanged nearby. Later, The Widow ignores Waldo's advice, to either align with the other Barons who tried to kill her or lose everything she built, instead aligning herself with Quinn. Lydia and the Clippers seek out Quinn, but the bunker doors are booby trapped, and she loses most of her men. In the commotion, Veil finds her way out of the transit station and flees from Quinn, who is having hallucinations of his dead son.

    Season 2 Episode 6 - "Leopard Stalks in Snow" - April 23, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    In the aftermath of the transit station explosion, Lydia loses all her men and is captured by Quinn who offers her a chance to avenge their son with a dagger to his heart. Unlike Ryder, she doesn't hesitate, but Quinn stops her hand from the killing blow, then has an intimate moment. Meanwhile, after their escape from the Mechs, Bajie takes Sunny to his healer friend located in a Gasper addicts opium den. Veil finds temporary solace at The Widow's Sanctuary, but The Widow makes an unholy alliance with Quinn and hands her and baby Henry over to him. Also, Tilda gets closer to Odessa by telling her why she calls Minerva "mother" and they share an intimate moment witnessed by Waldo. Later, Ava finds M.K., who seemed to have lost his power after a skirmish with a Nomad, leaving him bloody. They make camp at an Old World hotel left abandoned during Christmas 2024. Sunny and M.K. reunite, but he's followed by the three Abbotts; Cyan, Ramona, and Dury, seeking out M.K's darkness with an Azraian device. A melee ensues and they're quickly defeated until Bajie shows up, revealing his secret of being an Abbott in another life. Ava dies from her injuries after saving M.K. while Sunny suddenly collapses from a mysterious blow to the chest.
    Opening scene ... gruesome and very bloody display of what results from an explosion.

    What Bajie was a monk?

    Cute fight in a Mall Christmas display.

    Like Sunny and Bajie's knit outfits, especially Sunny's. Someone did a great job on that top and jacket.

    After all the trouble that Veil went to to escape Quinn, even killing the one guard and thinking she found a sanctuary with The Widow only to have The Widow hand her back to Quinn, how devastating.

    Season 2 Episode 7 - "Black Heart, White Mountain" - April 30, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    After a dying Cyan attacked him with the hand of the Five Poisons, a poisoned and comatose Sunny is trapped in a nightmare in which he must confront his inner demons. In the dream, he is living a simple life as a farmer with Veil and Henry who has grown into a boy. Things quickly escalate as the poison seeps through his body, causing all the victims he clipped, including a girl named Artemis, to kill him. Bajie and M.K. infiltrate the Abbott monastery to gather medical supplies and special needles in order to revive Sunny, along with Sunny's Azra compass Bajie secretly steals. Later, Bajie explains his departure from the monastery. He had a loving relationship with his novice Flea, who had dark abilities similar to M.K. and wishes to find her. Meanwhile, Quinn and The Widow assault Jade's palace in order to exile her from the Badlands.

    All the abbots and novices have dark abilities that is the entire point of the monastery, training to control the darkness.

    For some sneaking suspicion I think Flea maybe The Widow.

    I was surprised that they let Jade go.

    I just realized that The Wall is the wall between the US and Mexico and The Badlands are the US. Something bad happened.

    Season 2 Episode 8 - "Sting of the Scorpion's Tail" - May 7, 2017

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Into_t...n_1_.282015.29

    Quinn and The Widow prove their alliance by presenting their gifts; Baron Hassan and Baron Broadmore's heads. Meanwhile, Bajie gets Sunny and M.K. out of the Outlying Territories and through the wall into the Badlands. But it comes at a price when they're captured by Baron Chau's Clippers. However, Sunny devises a plan to get them out by proposing to Chau he knows how to lure The Widow out. He becomes Chau's Regent, slips Bajie the cell key to his freedom, and delivers M.K. to The Widow in order to find Quinn's hideout. Sunny and The Widow's reunion is a bloody one as they work together, alongside M.K. and Tilda, fighting the Clippers. Later, Veil is forced to marry Quinn so he can help raise Henry, grooming him as his heir to the baroncy. Their consummation is interrupted by a report that Sunny is alive and joined forces with The Widow and coming to find Quinn.
    Lots and lots and lots of beautiful choreographed fighting. Seriously though who puts their soldiers/clippers into white uniforms. This entire episode just moves the players so The Widow, Lydia (Quinn's first wife), Sunny (Quinn's ex-regent, Veil's love, and Henry's dad), Veil & baby Henry, MK, and Quinn are all in the same place at the same time.
