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.

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.

Luckily Zeph (Kelly McCormack) has survived her near-death experience and has come up with a way to wake up the Jaqobis boys. Unlucky for Zeph, she gets caught in the rain and is reprogrammed, unable to help the reunited team make an escape after attack one of the the Lady‘s terraforming factories.

Killjoys - Run, Yala, Run TV review

Sometimes the heroes lose. It’s a brave new world in Killjoys‘ Fifth Seeason premiere. After escaping the Green, the Lady (Lily Gail Reid) has begun reshaping Westerly to suit her needs. While D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) remains a Killjoy, albeit without any memories of his friends or family, Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) and Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) are living life as a married couple blissfully unaware of the truth… until Dutch begins to wake-up. The Lady has turned the world topsy turvy recasting those to fit her whims (and to keep the dangerous at arm’s length). There are certainly questions here, such as who is lurking behind the scenes to help trigger Dutch’s memory? And, now that her first attempt has failed, what kind of shock will Dutch need to force on her friends to try and awake them again?
