Review: The Path Season 2 Episode 11 “Defiance”

With only two episodes to go, all three characters are spiralling into anger and desperation, lacking control of their behaviour and interactions with others. The reasoning behind these developments work brilliantly for all three characters. From Eddie’s vengeance against Cal and his leadership, to Cal’s past of sexual abuse, attempts at holding control over the movement and defence of Sarah to Sarah’s realisation of the immorality of her actions. All three actors do incredible jobs, especially Aaron Paul and Hugh Dancy, both of whom show the quick changes in attitude. However, while the character work here is impressive, there is little plot progression and it does feel like the show is stalling in the lead up to the finale. Also, Hawk continues to go back and forth in terms of being a compelling character, so it will be interesting to see how the writers handle him and his relationship with Eddie as tensions increase. 7.6/10
