If you missed last Friday’s Season 5 premiere of Killjoys, go back and watch it. I’ll wait. OK, all caught up? Wow, right? My thoughts exactly. Opening with our faves all caught in The Lady’s memory matrix was an amazing twist to kick off this final run of episodes and served as a reminder of why I’ve loved Killjoys since Day 1, and why shows like it are successful: create characters that you care about and throw them into (sometimes) batshit situations.
Episode 2, debuting Friday, is called “Blame It on the Rain,” and if you don’t have the Milli Vanilli song stuck in your head right now I’m disappointed. Mainly because it means you’re young, and I’m old. Anyway, here’s the official synopsis for the instalment, written by Nikolijne Troubetzkoy and directed by Peter Stebbings.
Awake from the memory matrix, Dutch is determined to wake her friends and stop the Lady, before it’s too late.
And here are more treats I caught watching the episode.
Is Zeph dead?
I sure hope not, but the wound she sustained last week sure looked serious. Dutch is going to rely on an old friend—who has a sweet new hairdo—for help in saving her. Zeph can’t die, because she’s the only one who can stop the pesky rain from keeping everyone stuck in the matrix.
Pree is on the hunt
First of all, how much are you enjoying Pree’s new look? (Follow Thom Allison to learn some insight into it.) Secondly, he’s not letting up in his search for Dutch, especially with a Warrant 5 on her head.
Khlyen vs. The Lady
I love seeing Khlyen go head-to-head with anybody and he has a wonderful history of doing it. And his tête-à-têtes with The Lady have been truly compelling; their verbal volleys have been wonderful. But The Lady delivers an overhand smash that leaves Khlyen speechless. Also? We learn there is a finite number of days until the terraforming is complete, rendering all breathable air, well, not.
Welcome back, Fancy
I was wondering when Fancy would waltz back into our lives. He does it on Friday, and his opening lines are hilarious.
Killjoys airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Space.
