Into the Badlands: Sting of the Scorpion’s Tail (RECAP)
In Season 2, Episode 8 of Into The Badlands “Sting of the Scorpion’s Tail”, we have solidified the fact that the Widow and her cohorts are not to be messed with. And it’s with that in mind that the opening scene of episode 8 is arguably one of the best stylized scenes of the entire series thus far.
We start with the Widow’s “butterflies” sneakily attack Baron Hassan and one of his clippers while hiding behind sheer sheets. The location they cornered him in was extremely clever, as he seemingly went to war with shadows. Talk about a disappearing trick! He haphazardly tries to defend himself when the Queen of the Damned walks in: The Widow. Under the mercy of her sword, he still tries to defend himself with a knife he smartly tucked under his sleeve. But I beg to question, why does he even try? Not only is he greatly outnumbered but it is the Widow he is facing, the sheer definition of a badass.
