Killjoys: We see a scary side to Aneela

Hells yeah, Killjoys is kicking some serious ass in Season 3. From deadly Hackmods to waging war against Aneela, we’ve loved every damn second we’ve seen. The fun continues on Friday in “The Hullen Have Eyes,” written by Adam Barken and directed by Ruba Nadda. It features a rollicking ride to a planet with a strange history, Johnny and Zeph—read our interview with Kelly McCormack—butting heads and a peek at what’s going on with Aneela.

Here’s what Space says about this week’s episode:

The Killjoys trace the last coordinates of a Black Root ship to a radiation scorched planet. The planet is home to an abandoned Hullen training camp, creepy inhabitants, and a surprising connection to their past.

And here are some fun tidbits we can add after watching a screener.

Aneela unhinged
We watched Aneela dump goo into Delle Seyah Kendry and bring her back to life. Barken’s script shows how far Aneela has gotten with regard to her war preparations … and how it’s best to run when Aneela gets angry. We also get our first gander at Ted Atherton as Gander, who reports to Aneela.

Speaking of Aneela…
Hannah John-Kamen is putting on an acting clinic with her portrayal of Aneela. She may look like Dutch, but her body language, accent and personality are totally unique.

Xeph + Johnny = plenty of laughs
There is a lot of creepiness to go around in Friday’s episode (what’s under that girl’s hood is going to give us nightmares), so the shenanigans between Zeph and Johnny are most welcome. He’s not happy she’s part of the team and she’s just trying to do her job.

Aidan Devine guest stars
The “that guy” of Canadian television appears in a memorable role. His character has got some unpleasant plans for our heroes … will he succeed?

Killjoys airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on Space.
