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.

“Listen, nobody loves this show more than me, but at the end of the day, I care more about a human being. I care more about Melanie Scrofano than I care for the character Wynonna Earp, and I love Wynonna Earp. I didn’t even have that thought, so when I saw she had it and it all came out, I think it was a great sense of relief all around.” Continue reading.

“I liked it being Nicole first because people are really interested in their relationship. And if that’s your jam, there’s some delicious stuff coming down the line. They didn’t have problems with each other and really liked and respected each other, but their relationship really changed once Wynonna found out that Nicole and Waverly were dating.” Continue reading.

“Wynonna is literally a badass superhero, but at the end of the day she needs someone to help her, to cry with and to be like ‘I don’t think this is fair.’ Destiny has it in for Wynonna in a weird way, right? It’s the ultimate metaphor for being a woman in 2017 on some level. She never gets to make her own choices, yet every single day she gets up and is going to try to, and that’s my favorite thing about her.” Continue reading.

From Kelly Townsend of The TV Junkies:

“Basically, we wanted to tell a story and this let us tell the story in a unique way. Sort of non-linear, if you will. Really, what I wanted to do was find a way to get inside Six’s head. The real nugget of this episode was the revelation that he had a family, and essentially what happened to the family. It just seemed like an interesting way to get at that story.” Continue reading.
