Preview: Killjoys takes its final ride in Season 5

This is it, Killjoys fans. The end of the road for Team Awesome Force. It’s been one hells of a ride watching the journey Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), John (Aaron Ashmore), D’Avin (Luke MacFarlane) have been on, hasn’t it? And with the group the trio has assembled, including Pree (Thom Allison), Fancy (Sean Baek), Turin (Patrick Garrow) and Zeph (Kelly McCormack), these final 10 episodes are going to be amazing.

Season 5, returning Friday at 10 p.m. ET on Space, catches up after the Killjoys, with Aneela’s help, succeeded in killing the Green, the repository of living memories through which the Hullen lived eternally. But instead of helping Aneela escape it, they lead The Lady (Alanna Bale) into their world. She harnesses her ability to control their memories in hopes of finding Jaq (Jaeden Noel), the Hullen heir.

Here’s what Bell Media has revealed as the synopsis for “Run, Yala, Run,” written by show creator Michelle Lovretta and directed by Peter Stebbings:

A woman looks up.Dutch wakes up and realizes that The Lady has put Westerley under a collective delusion. With no memory comes a new reality. Dutch struggles to find a way to wake up her gang before it’s too late. But before she can, a new Killjoy comes into town looking for Jaq.

And here are more tasty tidbits I gleaned after watching a screener.

We kick off Season 5 with … jazz?
After the shocking Season 4 finale, Season 5 begins with a toe-tapping, finger-snapping tune and Johnny wearing workman’s coveralls. What the heck is happening here? And why doesn’t Dutch recognize D’Avin?

The sarcastic tone is still there
Listen, I didn’t expect the witty banter to abate, it just gave me immense joy to hear “Putting the ass in sass,” and “You put the dick in cocky,” being uttered in prime time.

The search for Jaq continues
And the group trying to find him is growing. And to get to him they’ll have to go through Delle Seyah.

Killjoys airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on Space.

“Ever since I was 10 years old I wanted to write TV shows. There was a Hollywood memorabilia store a few blocks from my place and that’s where I kind of stumbled onto the idea. In the back, they had copies of old TV scripts. I’d buy them and I just become hooked on the idea.” Continue reading.

“We’ve set up all year that the thing Wynonna fears the most is being alone and letting her team down, and that seems to be exactly what has happened. Unlike the episode where she kind of breaks down and gives Bulshar Peacemaker, she seems determined to get them back at any cost.” Continue reading.
