Legend of the Seeker – Who is more awesome, Denna or Cara?

- Season 2, Episode 7 - "Resurrection"

The Mord-Sith Denna trains General Grix in "Resurrection."

We last saw Denna in “Bloodline” after Kahlan (on Richard’s orders) almost beat her to death. Although the writers have pretty much thrown Goodkind’s books out the window with this story, I actually like their decision to keep Denna alive. The fans simply love the Mord-Sith, and who would say no to an episode like tonight’s, which featured both Cara and Denna? The cast was smoldering hot.

All right, I have to ask this question, because we finally got to see Denna and Cara go head-to-head tonight. Which of the two is more awesome? You can define “awesome” any way you like — hot, kick-ass, whatever — but which of the two would you rank higher? I love Cara. She’s deadly, witty, sardonic, and something of a lone wolf, but also naive. That said, I won’t lie — Denna is my favorite Mord-Sith. Her history with Richard and her sheer badness have made an indelible impression. To me, she will always be The Mord-Sith, the one who epitomizes the red leather. (Weigh in by taking the poll below.)

Another character returned tonight. That is, of course, Dennee, Kahlan’s little sister. (Hey … Denna and Dennee have nearly the same name. Haha.) I think the pieces of the story fit together nicely, but once again, Kahlan is no longer the last Confessor. I’ve given up any expectations about the show staying true to the books. Now, I’m just about enjoying the characters and the great production values.

Darken Rahl spent some quality family time with Richard in this episode. I know we’ve discussed the nature of the Underworld before, but this episode once again seems to suggest that everyone suffers in the Underworld — good and evil alike. Why else does Richard end up there in the vengeful hands of Rahl?

A few other notes on “Resurrection”:

  • Darken Rahl’s crimson robes don’t look good on Richard at all. When he finally takes the throne, Richard needs to get some new clothes tailored in his own style.
  • Although I thought the explanation of the whisperer weapons was a bit cheesy, I loved the effect of the detonation, as well as the depiction of the deafening spell that Zedd cast. Very, very cool effects.
  • Denna will be back next week in “Light.” I’m definitely watching. Will you be?

i can’t choose between Denna & Cara. although i love Denna, Cara has grown on me & they’re both so hot!

btw, i like both Cara & Denna when they’re hair is not done up in the braid. Cara, especially in the season finale, just didn’t look good with the braid. actually, she kind of looks completely different than the season finale. Denna is just hot no matter what, but especially when her hair is down.

oh yeah, the white leather was a nice call back to the books. the white agiel though? lame!

I can’t really choose between Cara and Denna.

I enjoyed this episode as I have enjoyed every Legend of the Seeker episode thus far. However, I didn’t like the decision to have Kahlan’s sister permanently resurrected in another women’s body. I found that rather disturbing. And the fact that Dennee is now going to raise the woman’s child makes it even more disturbing. I can’t wait until they tell the kid that mommy isn’t mommy anymore! All well, hopefully the new Dennee will have a very small role from here on. In fact, I would rather see them have her killed off.

Cara For SURE!!! She can be cruel, but has shown how she felt from time to time , and that’s what makes me love her . Denna is just a simple Mord-Sith who wants to have her way with Richard. Its not a battle CARA IS MORE AWESOME MORD-SITH . Period .

Cara,no contest. And I say this as a straight women, she is major hot and rocking the leather look. Denna’s just a bitch.

LOL – all the Mord-Sith are bitches. I think the actress who plays Denna is more beautiful (particularly when her hair is down; it’s only fair to compare them when her hair is not braided because Cara’s hair is always down ever since her braid was cut off). However, I definitely think Cara is the better warrior.

LOL!!! they fuked Cara over when her own sisters cut off her braid . You think Denna is prettier 0.O .. i think she’s pretty , but have you see Cara . I jizz my pants just thinking about her … Omg i felt so bad when Cara killed her though … i really think she was going to change .

Is this really a question? Well, looking at the poll result, no, it’s not. Cara is more awesome, no doubt about that. :) And I think Tabrett is more beautiful than Jessica too.

May 7, 2010 at 5:26 AM

Indeed, I think Cara. In this woman more expression, charisma and charm. But I was very sorry for Denna, when she died, because she played well. Kara is the closest person to me in the book, Tabrett Bethell plays perfectly, even though she did not read books (as she said in an interview).
