Some of the season finale reviews of Defiance mention Linda and her character so I’ve added them below.
“Pilar is a fantastic character — manic, mad and full of secrets,” says Hamilton. “This is why I love doing sci-fi. You can go to so many more interesting places than you can in some forensic cop drama.”
Thing is, Pilar has dangled before them the promise of a hippie commune where mixed-race kids are not treated as outcasts — but known to only her and son Quentin, no such place exists. And as the finale draws to a close, the four of them are bound for who-knows-where, with the Tarrs and Rafe in pursuit. (How they skipped a primo opportunity for Linda Hamilton to bark at the kids, “Come with me if you want to live,” I do not know. But she sure was hella entertaining when stomping around the pristine Tarr home.)
Linda Hamilton delivered a worthy performance in her short guest appearance, and I hope we get to see more of her in season 3, if there is one.
I love that all of the reviews were really positive about Linda and her performance.
