killjoys-bro-d-trip

“Bro-D Trip” focuses on the Jacobi brothers and their search for Green while leaving Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) to fend for herself against Juno Clay (Billy MacLellan) who plans to hunt down the Killjoys and take her baby to recoup lost expenses. Throughout the episode, a more devious and murderous Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) continues to struggle with the effects of Hullen psychosis (even going so far as to actually shoot is brother in the back at one point). Dutch‘s (Hannah John-Kamen) appearance at the end of the episode saves D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) but leaves all kinds of questions about what is happening in the minds of two of the show’s three stars.

killjoys-johnny-dangerously

Last week’s season premiere caught us up with Dutch‘s (Hannah John-Kamen) adventures in the Green and offered a flashback to how she and Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) became RAC agents. “Johnny Dangerously” catches us up with the rest of the characters including the marooned Jacobi brothers and Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen), and lets us know what happened to the rest of the good guys following the sudden halt in the battle against the Hullen. Stuck in the middle of nowhere D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) and Kendry take rash action to save a dying Johnny by injecting him with the Green. The process saves his life but also makes him more unstable and unpredictable.

While temporarily putting the bizarre adventures of the Green on hold, Season Four of Killjoys opens with a bedtime story for Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen). After she is wounded inside the Green by the Lady, Khlyen (Rob Stewart) offers the daughter he raised a bedtime story which he hopes will give Dutch the strength to fight back against their mysterious adversary. That story just so happens to be how Dutch and Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) got to the Quad and became Killjoys. While I’m still very much on the fence about the Green and how much of the series the storyline has taken up, its fun to see the show return to simpler times for our two heroes.

killjoys-wargasm

Killjoys closes out its Third Season with the war between the Hullen and the Killjoys finally heating up. “Wargasm” also gives us the confrontation between Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and Aneela (John-Kamen), although its outcome (and that of the war) is unexpected. Given how the episode ends, it looks like its going to be awhile before our three heroes return to their roles as space bounty hunters.

killjoys-reckoning-ball

The penultimate episode of Killjoys‘ Third Season deals primarily with D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) attempting to come up with a plan to stop Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) that doesn’t involve Dutch‘s (John-Kamen) death as well. The idea of leading her crazy doppelganger into a trap through a fake memory placed within the Green is a good one, but (as is often the case) things hardly go according to plan. Meanwhile, Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) has his hands full with the arrival of a pregnant Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) under a flag of truce. And, based on the episode’s final scene, she’s not the only one who has made an unexpected visit.

Unaware of the chaos aboard the Hullen ship where Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) is desperately searching for Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) and consumed with taking back control of the green, the Killjoys come up with a plan to even the odds against their enemy. However, they’re going to need some unusual tech to do so. Buying some information off some less-than-trustworthy allies who end up betraying them, Dutch (John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), and D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) head out to steal a sonic amplifier and, as usually happens wit the Killjoys‘ plans, things go wrong rather quickly.

killjoys-the-wolf-you-feed

The nature of Dutch‘s (Hannah John-Kamen) connection to both Khlyen (Rob Stewart) and Aneela (John-Kamen) has been one the show’s writers have kept close to the vest, until now. With the help of Zeph (Kelly McCormack), Dutch undergoes a risky medical procedure which allows her to see into the memories of Aneela allowing the Killjoy to discover the nature of Khlyen’s relationship with her more evil and unstable doppelganger and better understand what led Klein to rescue her all those years ago. Like most of the show’s reveals, it’s about as bizarre as possible. And answers she finds only raises further questions for Dutch and who and what she is.

killjoys-attack-the-rack

The war against the Hullen begins as Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) leads a culling of the local branch of the Rack which goes horribly wrong when the Killjoys discover they have been betrayed by one of their own (Erik Knudsen). While Dutch continues to skulk around playing whack-a-Hullen, Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) and D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) are captured and tortured for information. Despite surviving, and proving the truth about the Hullen to the leaders of the other Rack groups, the Killjoys are dealt yet another crippling blow as Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) destroys all the enemies standing in her way.

The celebration of Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) reaching Level 5 soon turns sour when other RAC agents appear to take the Killjoy in on a warrant for his arrest for the murder of Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen). While needing a place to hide and allies to fight the Hullen, Pree (Thom Allison) escorts Johnny and Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) to the world of Ferran (who aren’t as glad to see the former leader as he hoped), leaving D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) and new girl to track down the breadcrumbs that Kendry is still alive and a member of the Hullen.

killjoys-a-skinner-darkly

“A Skinner, Darkly” offers two separate stories before bringing Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) home. Before he can get there, however, Johnny will learn the (disappointing) truth about both his missing friend and Clara (Stephanie Leonidas) and the young woman (Tommie-Amber Pirie) wearing her weaponized arm when he uncovers the facts about a re-skinning operation which is using the Hullen ooze to allow others to take on the appearance of the doctor’s (Viktoria Modesta) victims. The audience isn’t the only one disappointed in the outcome, as Johnny (thankfully) heads home calling an end to his solo travels.
