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.

Killjoys - Wargasm TV review

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 TV review

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.

Killjoys - Heist, Heist, Baby television review

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.
