Into The Badlands finale react Wolfs Breath Dragon Fire

The Sunny versus Quinn showdown reaches its bloody conclusion For all of the cracked skulls narrative twists and mysterious flashbacks to training the second season of Into The Badlands has always been about one thing and one thing only the inevitable clash between ruthless killer with a heart of gold Sunny and his former trainer master and current babystealer Quinn. Once an oppressed and controlled killer as part of Baron Quinns stable of Clippers Sunny has been on his own for a while now.

At the end of the season premiere it was revealed that Veil and her new baby Henry were now with Quinn. Since then hes amassed a small army of followers dedicated to his cause and Sunny has spent the season finding his way back to his true love and the son hes never met. Wolfs Breath Dragon Fire is the punctuation to this feud as Sunny is finally on his way to confronting Quinn at his stronghold. The final battle is upon us says Quinn while cradling Henry in the creepiest way possible. You know how to tell that this final battle is going to be epic? Sunny brings out the old motorcycle and when he does that he means business.

That doesnt mean Quinn isnt prepared though. Hes more than aware of what Sunny is capable of and at the top of the episode he warns his men. He tells them that Sunny is the most skilled killer hes ever produced. Even then Quinn is convinced that his former Clipper is no match for the men hes now trained to die for him. And believe me theyre prepared. Lydia tries to sabotage Quinns plan by telling the men that hes rigged the whole place to explode should Sunny manage to get too close to Veil and Henry but the soldiers dont care. They are prepared to go down with Quinn. As for Lydia her insubordination leads Quinn to order her execution.

Of course Quinn and Sunny arent the only ones preparing for war. The Widow having nearly killed her daughter in order to advance her cause is now doing everything she can to bring back M.K.s powers so that she can use him to assert control over everyone and everything. Not everyone is on board with this plan though. Waldo believes shes lost her way that shes lost sight of her vision for the future. She offers him a baronship once this is all over but that just reaffirms that shes strayed from her original ideas about free men and women.

M.K. isnt the only one the Widow is controlling. She also has Bajie held captive and she wants him to translate that ohsospecial book thats supposed to include everything about these people with powers and find a way to bring M.K.s back. Bajie has been a slippery character all season long. On the one hand we know he used to train the Widow and maybe has some sort of allegiance to her. On the other hand does he look out for anyone other than himself even if he manages to help other people in the process?

Im not always sure where Bajie stands but to his credit he shows up to help Sunny take on Quinn. Sunny saves Lydia first while shes digging her own grave then sets out to raid Quinns bunker and find his family. Then Tilda escapes from her mothers prison and takes Bajie with her as Waldo provides a cover story. Recap continues on page 2 Its a good thing Tilda helped Bajie escape too because he shows up just in time to save Sunny. The former Clipper does one hell of a job dodging fire arrows and taking down some of Quinns soldiers but a bomb blast quickly buries him under a pile of rubble. Thats when Bajie shows up and digs him out and they set about getting their revenge and saving Veil and Henry. Then Into The Badlands really kicks into high gear and the result is a delightfully violent climax that sees Sunny and Bajie absolutely destroy every single one of Quinns soldiers. Heads roll limbs are removed from sockets and blood sprays in all directions. While Sunny chops down men at the knees — he literally cuts their legs off at the joint — Bajie does his best with a set of nunchucks plowing through one illequipped solider after another.

Eventually though while Sunny sets out after Quinn Veil and Henry Bajie stays behind to deal with Quinns sidekick. I hate sidekicks he says as he slices the mans throat with a piece of broken glass. Its the final kill for Bajie but he hasnt escaped unscathed. Scissors really? he asks as he sees hes been stabbed in the side. He laments his bad luck and this ungraceful way of dying as he sits down in a chair and accepts his fate. And I was just about to save the world he says seemingly his last words as he looks at the coveted compass thats meant to lead to Azra.

With every other solider now missing limbs or their head all thats left for Sunny to do is kill Quinn and reunite with his family. Before the showdown Quinn blows the place up but just enough to create a cool rubblefilled spot for them to fight obviously. As sunlight and snow come through a blasted hole in the roof Sunny and Quinn go to war. They trade sword blows and swift kicks their skills equaling out nobody able to get the upper hand. Eventually when Quinn creates some separation and goes after Veil hoping to kill her before she flees with Henry Sunny throws a sword right through him.

As Quinn falls to the ground Sunny is reunited with Veil and meets his son for the first time. Of course the moment cant last. As the reunited family goes to leave Quinn manages to get back up grabbing Veil and holding her hostage. He offers up Veil in exchange for Henry but you know its not going to happen. Theres palpable dread as the inevitability of Sunny losing someone he loves settles in. Sure enough Veil sacrifices herself to save Henry putting a dagger through her chest and through Quinns at the same time. Its a devastating moment the emotional impact compounded by the length of Sunnys journey. He came so far and yet he couldnt save Veil.  That may be the end of Sunnys revenge story but its certainly not the end of season 2s mysteries. As Sunny leaves Quinns stronghold with Henry in his arms a single shot reveals that Bajie is no longer in the chair where he sat down to die. So where is he?

We see him riding Sunnys motorcycle along a coastline. He pulls up to what seems to be some sort of old satellite station overlooking a great expanse of water from high up on the cliffs. Its a stunning sight. Bajie makes his way inside the station and thats when things get weird and mysterious. He puts the Azra compass into some sort of slot and lights begin to flash. The compass leads him through a pattern of buttons to push and the result seems to be that a signal is sent out. The signal reverberates across the water as Bajie slumps to the ground whispering Azra over and over again.
