Into the Badlands S2E1 "Tiger Pushes Mountain" Recap

Six months after the events of the season one finale, Sunny is now a "Picker" which means he works as a miner working slave labour excavating opium in the Bordeaux Mines far away from the Badlands. He is shackled to a smuggler named Bajie (Nick Frost) whom he becomes friends with. M.K. is being trained by the Abbotts with Ava being the main one in charge. He later meets The Master, who offers up his freedom if and when he learns to control his abilities and that she will now be in charge of his training. Sunny observes an arena fight in which under-performing Pickers are executed for not reaching their quota and it inspires him to plan his escape. After Bajie obtains a map, he wants to go with Sunny but Sunny refuses. In turn, Bajie reveals Sunny's true identity to the mine boss known as The Engineer.

Back in the Badlands, Ryder has been living it up with his love Jade as the Baron after his father died and controls all the territories owned by Quinn, Jacobee, and The Widow. The Widow and Tilda, a Regent, attack during an inspection of the oil fields and kill most of Ryder's Clippers and he has no choice but to retreat. They are forming an army of Cogs and Dolls with the promise that they will end the Badlands feudal system and establish a democratic one instead. Tilda recruits Odessa, a former Doll, to join them as a Butterfly and goes against her mother's orders to have the Clipper prisoners murdered as vengeance for their abuse of the Dolls.

Finally, we see Veil give birth to a baby boy in the company of Quinn, who is still alive.

Into The Badlands airs on Sundays on AMC at 10/9c.
