Killjoys - Sporemaggedon TV review

The Killjoys season finale finds Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) all entering the Green for a final battle against the Lady. There a few twists here as D’avin’s anti-Green powers prove not to be the answer to stopping the Lady, the Lady toying with Johnny allowing for a return of sorts for Pawter (Sarah Power), a sudden amnesia causing disease is released in Westerly, and the Lady has one final trick up her sleeve to escape the Green just when in looks like our heroes had saved the day, thus resetting the show for Season Five.

Killjoys - What to Expect When You're Expecting...An Alien Parasite television review

“What to Expect When You’re Expecting…An Alien Parasite” is a fun episode that finally features all the core characters together under one roof. While trying to figure out how to help Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), more of Dutch‘s (Hannah John-Kamen) time in the Green is revealed (although still not how she managed to escape). While we still don’t understand why the Green crystallized following her return to the real world, we now know why Aneela stayed behind and what the Lady wanted from Dutch. As for Johnny, his attempt to kill himself not only revealed a way to de-Hullenize him but also how to deliver Delle Seyah Kendry‘s (Mayko Nguyen) baby, which it turns out isn’t a tentacle monster ready to enslave the human race. I don’t know if I’m relieved or disappointed.

Killjoys - Bro-D Trip television review

“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 television review

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.

Killjoys - The Warrior Princess Bride television review

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.
