Previously on "Defiance," Sukar (Noah Danby) was struck down by a nanite-filled shard of metal razor rain from an alien vessel, only to be brought back to life by the nanites while taking a bath in "cleansing" acid as part of a burial ritual. (Talk about a rough week.) His nanite-zombified body saved Defiance by helping a smart alien ship — which "knew" not to harm the Votans in Defiance — hurtle to Earth at a safe distance from the community. Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas), with only her faith in Sukar and her visions to guide her, helped him out until he died for real.
In this exclusive four-minute sneak peek at Episode 8, "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times," Nolan (Grant Bowler) and Deputy Tommy LaSalle (Dewshane Williams) walk through a barren desert on their way to check out the downed alien spacecraft. The main topic of discussion is Tommy's new focus on Irisa.
Oh, if Nolan only knew what went on between Tommy and Irisa right in the middle of his own law-keeper station, the proud father would probably burn the station down and run for the badlands — better than having the image forever burned in his brain.
When Nolan and Tommy reach the wreckage, they find a number of old Earth items, including what appears to be part of an American spacecraft. They also find a Russian uniform with the name A. Borovsky and an American one with the name G. McClintock. Then they spot a couple of bags of people, one of which becomes agitated.
They run to the bag and pull out the sexy actor Brian J. Smith, who used to play Matthew Scott on "Stargate Universe." In "Defiance," he's playing an astronaut named McClintock, who had been abducted by aliens.
He's in his tighty whiteys (except that they're brown) and covered in blue placenta-like goo. Fitting, as he has just been born into a new world of large-eyed Irathients and orange-eyed Castithans. There are also the aliens who abducted him, who are likely the featureless, androgynous Indogene scientists. Those Indos sure do love poking and prodding.

Yet, McClintock's first concern is whether the two strangers standing over him are American. Dude, do you even realize that you were abducted by aliens?
The other human didn't fare so well. The placenta bag holding the person supposedly known as A. Borovsky is looking a bit haggard and has a disconcerting putrid brown hue. McClintock has no idea how lucky he is. He could have become a feast for bacteria, like Borovsky.
G. (Gerald? Gary?) McClintock is probably going to pass out on learning that his home planet is now being shared with the same creatures who preserved him for years in a bag of blue primordial ooze. No, it wasn't the Russians, G.; it was the aliens.
