“I think a third season does allow you to take the time for a “detour” episode like this. The audience knows the game and is ready for the expansion packs; the actors are hungry to take their characters to new places; the writers know how to write to the actors’ strengths and how to shade the colors in more inventive ways. That being said, part of the struggle with Killjoys is we’re always trying to cram a regular thirteen-episode season into ten episodes. So even if we get to take a delicious road trip into Pree’s backstory, it still has to serve the greater arc of the season. It still has to pay off what we’ve set in motion. As Pree would say, there are no free rides in Killjoys. Except maybe Johnny. But that’s between him and the Sexers.” Continue reading.

“There’s disagreements. They’re very different people. They look at the world in very different ways but they love each other and respect each other so much that they work through the stuff and I think that’s a realistic relationship and that’s a good friendship. You’re not always going to agree with your friends or family. You work through it and talk about it, and then you move on. There’s still that level of love and respect at the end of the day.” Continue reading.

“I had to read it in sections because I had to walk away and walk around the apartment because I was so excited about what was happening. To see it unfold and be so much more than I imagined, with surprises and entrees into parts of his life you’ve not thought about, was just so exciting.” Continue reading.

Killjoys: Pree gets a rich and meaningful back story

Every episode of Killjoys is must-see, but this week’s instalment may be among the most anticipated. As show creator Michelle Lovretta told us prior to the Season 3 return, “The Lion, the Witch and the Warlord,” delves into Pree’s past.

Both Lovretta and actor Thom Allison teased the episode on Twitter, ramping up the drama with these two posts:

So, does Friday’s new episode live up to the hype? Here’s Space’s official synopsis:

An ambush sends Dutch and Johnny running to Pree’s warlord past for help, as D’avin tries to get to the bottom of a Black Warrant that hits unexpectedly close to home.

And here are some juicy tidbits gleaned from watching the episode, written by Julian Doucet and directed by Paolo Barzman.

Zeph vs. Johnny
We won’t give anything away, but D’avin having to say, “Into your corners, nerds,” should be a pretty good indication as to how the relationship between Zeph and Johnny is going. Perhaps they’ll be able to bond over a shared project: opening the Remnant. To be honest, I’d watch a spinoff series starring Zeph, Johnny and D’avin—the chemistry with this trio is off the frigging charts.

Johnny celebrates a milestone
And Turin is there to be very hands-on with the party. He may not get a ton of screen time, but Patrick Garrow (and his hair) make the most of it when they do. Turin is the perfect counterpoint and confidant to our heroes. Johnny’s buzz is killed by a situation from his past that returns to haunt him. Chaos ensues.

Pree shines
From his quips in the bar to his shady past, Pree is front and centre on Friday night, helping Johnny get out of the mess he’s in. That leads Lucy, Johnny and Dutch to a planet only Pree can get them access to. It’s a world called Ohron, an icy place where making an entrance is key, keeping warm is necessary and going blond is fabulous. Writing for television is a collaborative effort with many hands involved in the recipe, so kudos to Julian Doucet and the writing room for giving Pree such a rich and meaningful back story. Also? Johnny and Dutch air out some very dirty laundry between them.

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