In Season 2, Episode 5 “Monkey Leaps Through Mist,” Sunny finally finds what he’s looking for — passage through the tunnel to get into the Badlands and back to his family — but even with such a clear way out, he can’t leave Nos’s compound without helping someone in need. “[Sunny’s] trying to prove himself worthy of Veil. He’s always felt the guilt of what he’s done and the consequences of what he’s done,” Executive Producer Miles Millar says in a new behind-the-scenes video.
Dirty past aside, Sunny now has the chance to save a Doll and her daughter from an eternal life of servitude. “He knows that he should leave,” Daniel Wu says. “But he almost feels guilty because, partially, it had something to do with him, so he doesn’t want to have that burden also.” After all, Sunny refused to kill Nos for Portia in exchange for her money.
But regardless of Sunny’s good intentions, rescuing one of Nos’s Dolls won’t happen without a fight — and Sunny finds himself vastly outnumbered on his mission to do good.
