In Season 2, Episode 8 “Sting of the Scorpion’s Tail,” Sunny accepts a role as Baron Chau’s Regent. His first order of business? Turn M.K. over to the Widow and leave Bajie behind in the cog pens. “Sunny knows the Badlands is in chaos [and] he knows everyone’s vying for Quinn, so he’s going to use those elements to get back to Quinn,” says Daniel Wu.
Although it turns out Sunny’s actions were just a small part of a larger plan, “Bajie and M.K. really believe that Sunny has betrayed them,” says Executive Producer Miles Millar. “The sense of friendship and trust that he has built with them has evaporated.” Now that Baron Chau knows the Widow is interested in M.K.’s alleged dark power, “there’s still some level of betrayal,” says Aramis Knight of all the secrets Sunny gave away as part of his scheme. “I’ve spent so much of my life trying to hide my power and he just gives it all away.”
