KILLJOYS – Season 4 Episode 3 – SPOILERS
Hullenized Johnny is preoccupied with finding Dutch. He locates a pool of the green, and seems to use repeated attempts to kill his brother as a device to get Dutch’s attention. (He could have jumped into the pool to make himself fully Hullen, but did not.) And it works. Just as he is about to strangle the life out of D’Avin, Dutch walks out of the greenpool and shoots John (non-lethally) with the gun he threw in there earlier. Then Dutch loses consciousness. (The pool crystalizes after she leaves it. Even Zeph doesn’t know what that means.)
The debtors colony where the Jaqobis brothers and Delle Seyah find themselves is identified as being in the Alcador Cluster, which must be a place in the same star system as The Quad. (The severed elevator cabin in which they arrived after drifting in space for a while has no propulsion system, so it couldn’t get far. Also Delle Seyah’s captor is sufficiently familiar with current events to know about The Nine, and that Delle Seyah is believed to be dead.) Zeph figures out where Lucy is hiding by tracking the Hullen ships that pursued her after she severed the elevator cable. The ships chasing Lucy disappeared into something called Borian’s Belt and never came out again.
When located, Lucy is in lockdown mode, but Pip (Atticus Mitchell) figures out that the song Johnny played when he was trying to steal the ship years earlier is the password. According to Tunefind, the song that unlocks Lucy is “There Ain’t Nobody Home” by Rockin’ Horse. The song does not seem to be available for download anywhere.
Delle Seyah (Mayko Nguyen) is at her best in this episode. She makes an alliance with fellow captive Bea (Mercedes Morris) and together they easily outwit Juno Clay (Billy MacLellan) and free themselves employing entirely non-violent methods. Delle Seyah has been out of touch with the green for a while and her human emotions seem to be returning. She expresses maternal feelings toward Bea and gets an unexpected hug in return. Through sheer will, Delle Seyah seems to have incorporated only the best aspects of the Hullen into herself.
Dutch, who Zeph says is physically okay, is back on Lucy, but won’t wake up. Johnny is locked up while the rest of the team figures out how to turn him back into his old self, and Delle Seyah’s water broke. (Her’s will be the second baby born on Lucy. Constance, a surrogate mother for The Nine, gave birth in Lucy’s cargo bay in “Vessel“.)
The episode’s best line is one of these four from Delle Seyah:
“A hint of murder is what you want in a bodyguard.”
“Every Cage has a door. You just have to find it.”
“The world is full of lesser men with greedy fingers, Bea. Let me teach you how to break them.”
“Don’t villainsplain me, honey. I’m the master.”
Emily Piggford (Yoki in “A Scanner Darkly“) will be Helen in two episodes of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY, an adaptation of the series of comic books of the same name about an alternate reality in which forty-three superpowered children are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who previously showed no signs of pregnancy. Seven of the infants survive, and are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, an extraterrestrial being living incognito on Earth. Among them are The Rumour (Emmy Raver-Lampman) who has the power to change reality by lying; The Séance (Robert Sheehan) who can speak to the dead; and Vanya (Ellen Page), who is destined to become The White Violin. Currently filming in and around Toronto, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY will be on Netflix in February, 2019.
