'Defiance' Showdown: A Shocking Discovery Puts The Town On Edge (VIDEO)

The citizens of Defiance are used to their share of disturbing events, but what transpires in the June 24th episode is especially hard on the town's mayor, Amanda Rosewater (Julie Benz), and her sister, Need/Want proprietor Kenya Rosewater (Mia Kirshner).

A dead man is found in a strange location, and as The Huffington Post's exclusive clip above makes clear, Amanda and especially Kenya had a particularly strong bond with the victim. When Lawkeeper Nolan (Grant Bowler) tells Amanda about what he's found, it prompts her to recall a difficult confrontation with her sister years ago.

The pressure on Nolan to solve the case of the mystery murder victim is intense, but his investigation riles up the town's citizens, which is the last thing Datak Tarr (Tony Curran) wants on the eve of his son Alak's wedding to Christie (Nicole Munoz).

"Defiance" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
