Killjoys heads for a “Wargasm”

This is it, Killjoys fans. The final battle for the whole enchilada. The Season 3 finale, “Wargasm,” is upon us. Written by series creator Michelle Lovretta and directed by Stefan Pleszczynski, the episode wins top marks for the title alone.

Will Killjoys be renewed for a fourth go-round? While we wait to get an official word—what is taking so long??—here’s the episode synopsis via Space:

It’s go time. The Killjoy militia has gathered everything they need and are ready to go to war with Aneela and her Hullen using Delle Seyah as bait. But as the battle begins, Aneela changes the entire game.

And here are more non-spoiler teases after watching the episode.

Alvis has left the building
We had stuffed this bad news into a deep corner of our minds after it happened last week. The “previously on” recapped that awful moment once again. Can we get a slow clap for Morgan Kelly for his awesome portrayal of that lovable Scarback?

A final drink
This wicked-cool group shot has been online for a few days now and we love it. Google “The Last Supper” by Leonardo da Vinci and compare the two images. Who is The Savior? Who are their loyal followers? Who is the traitor? And who will be sacrificed for our sins? The sepia-toned scene of Dutch, D’Av and Johnny, surrounded by their faithful fighters, is wonderful and sad. And Dutch’s narration played over a montage of her memories, will have you reaching for the tissues. Also? Pree’s war paint is. Bad. Ass.

Zeph and Dutch have a moment
It’s during final prep for Dutch’s head-to-head to Aneela, and it’s tearfully touching.

Turin returns
With close to 10 minutes already elapsed in the episode—and as familiar faces congregated—I wondered if our favourite scratchy-voiced ginger would appear. He does, but can he be trusted by our heroes?

Aneela changes the entire game.
Indeed she does, and our trio don’t see it coming. I yelled “No!” out loud when I realized what was happening. Not good, folks. Not good. Michelle Lovretta promised a drag-em-out fight between Dutch and Aneela in the season finale and she wasn’t lying: it’s a showstopper. I can’t even imagine the prep work and coordination involved to make it look so seamless on TV. Kudos to the stunt crew, doubles and Hannah John-Kamen for some gripping fight footage.

The space battle is top-notch
I have no clue what the CGI budget is for Killjoys, but they must have gone way over with the battle footage. It’s fantastic.

The Killjoys season finale airs Friday at 8 p.m. ET on Space.
