Killjoys - Don't Stop Beweaving television review

“Don’t Stop Beweaving” begins and ends with our characters in a happy place, although there is plenty of trouble to get though in between. The episode opens with Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) celebrating the return of Lucy. After that things get a bit tricker as he and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) work on turning prisoners into freedom fighters and Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) and Zeph (Kelly McCormack) take a trip back to the scientist’s homeworld to follow a clue about the Lady back to the world of fundamentalists who Zeph ran from years ago. Meanwhile, Khlyen (Rob Stewart) has his own troubles both mourning the loss of his daughter (who isn’t yet dead) and with the Lady’s latest tantrums.

Killjoys - Three Mutineers television review

Alliances continue to shift in “Three Mutineers” as Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) struggles to deal with backstabbing convicts and murderous envoys. Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) on the other hand makes a new friend (Rachael Ancheril) and puts Nucy to work to get the Killjoys a new ship. By the end of the episode the Killjoys have all made it out alive, have a way back to Westerly, tricked the Lady into thinking that they are dead, and Dutch and Johnny have (thankfully) put hurt feelings and bruised pride aside just in time to continue the fight of their lives. Not bad for an hour’s work.

Killjoys - A Bout, A Girl #tvreview

It’s hard to tell whether our heroes are in better or worse shape after the events of “A Bout, A Girl.” The arrival of Qreshi onboard the space prison for a prisoner super-brawl known as Bellaxion gives Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) a plan of escape. Joining the contest with Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) working behind the scenes to hack the security chips within all the prisoners gives the team a change. However, to make the plan work they’ll need the help of their new pal Sparlow (Alain Goulem) which turns out to be a very bad idea. Along with a montage of Dutch kicking some serious ass, the episode also features a tender moment where she breaks down to D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) about the fracture of her relationship with Johnny who, as Khlyen (Rob Stewart) so eloquently pointed out, is her true North.

While Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane work on getting out of the prison they’ve been sent to, a reawoken Zeph (Kelly McCormack) enlists some help to slow down the Lady‘s terraforming project. Although the Killjoys fail in their escape attempt, they do gain the notice of the space-prison’s warden (Rachael Ancheril) who offers them a deal in helping to prevent an assassination attempt inside her prison. As for Zeph, she, Pree (Thom Allison), and Turin (Patrick Garrow) manage to make a small dent in the lady’s plan by destoying several of the ships she uses to seed the clouds with her mind-controlling rain.

Killjoys - Three Killjoys and a Lady TV review

Having escaped from the Lady, the Killjoys find themselves at odds with each other when appearances suggest one of them has been turned by their adversary. Suspicions run high in “Three Killjoys and a Lady” and before all is said and done our heroes will be recaptured and one core member of the team won’t make it back alive. Along with the paranoia there’s more than a little humor as Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) finds just the right way to calm the Jaqobis boys down and reveal the true villain in their midst. Like Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), I’m sad to see Lucy go but the episode does let the A.I. go out in style with an on-screen appearance of Tamsen McDonough giving Lucy a face to remember. Another member down, the fight with the Lady is just beginning.
