KILLJOYS – Season 4 Episode 5 – SPOILERS
Partly-Hullen John keeps banging his head against the wall in the lounge where he is restrained. (Zeph theorizes that the Hullen parasite is creating a massive inflamation in his brain and the concussive stimulation relieves the pressure.) D’Avin is worried about that, but apparently Lucy has no method of restraint that would prevent violent prisoners from injuring themselves. (This actually turns out to be a useful thing, since Delle Seyah’s baby is too big for a normal birth (because of accelerated fetal development) and a C-section proves impossible because pregnancy hormones accelerate the Hullen healing process making the incision close too quickly.
Delle Seyah is indirectly saved by John’s attempted suicide. (One of John’s restraints is a neck collar on a very long chain. He takes a couple of runs at it and breaks his neck.) Zeph (Kelly McCormack) notices that the green in John’s brain is dying because of a lack of connection to the rest of his body. She severs his spine entirely, watches the green in his head go away, and then (somehow) reconnects his spinal cord. The same process works on Delle Seyah, and afterward, she is healthy, human and entirely non-Hullen.
Meanwhile, we get flashbacks to what happened to Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) inside the green. The Lady (disguised sometimes as Khlyen and sometimes as Aneela) knocks Dutch around quite a bit, and tries to get her to explain what Khlyen’s story was actually about. (Combat in the green is virtual, so there are no wounds and no blood, but there is pain.) Dutch can’t tell her because she doesn’t know. We do find out that The Lady is not Hullen, and that she is “a lot older than that”. (This brings to mind H.P. Lovecraft’s “Old Ones” entombed in a submerged city.) We still don’t know what The Lady actually looks like, or anything else about her. She wants to get out of the green, and to that end she awakens all the Hullen that Delle Seyah put to sleep when she suspended the war.
Pree (Thom Allison) offers an uncomfortable Delle Seyah some ice chips, and this exchange followed:
DELLE SEYAH: “This is ridiculous. My baby’s trying to split me in half, and you’re offering me ice chips?”
PREE: “Sweetheart, you stabbed one of my dearest friends in my bar. And as soon as that baby’s out of your entitled belly, I’ll be happy to return the favour. Until then, ice chip?”
Zeph comes in and explains the spine-severing idea, then leaves to scrub up for the operation. Delle Seyah grabs the bowl of ice and whacks Pree over the head, knocking him out, and says: “Ice chip that, you arrogant waiter.”
Later, Pree seems to soften a bit, and promises that he won’t kill Delle Seyah. “She had a really bad day today,” he tells Zeph. “She gets one free shot.”
Tori Anderson (Sabine in “Heart Shaped Box“) will star as tech company CEO Amelia in the Hallmark movie RETURN TO CHRISTMAS CREEK. After being told that her idea for a holiday app lacked Christmas spirit, Amelia returns home to the place where she grew up, a town called Christmas Creek. She arrives just in time for the town’s big annual event. (Her charter pilot uncle flies over the town dressed as Santa and delivers presents to underprivileged children.) Amelia was once his co-pilot, but her family moved away from Christmas Creek after her father and uncle had a falling out. Now, Amelia must try to patch things up between them. RETURN TO CHRISTMAS CREEK will air on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries this holiday season.
Aidan Devine (The Last Seer in “The Hullen Have Eyes“) will be Robert in KEELY AND DU, a film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name by Jane Martin.

She is taken to a remote location, where the group will attempt to force her to have the child. Keely resists the faith-based indoctrination of her captors. She also gradually forms a bond with Du (Nancy Palk), a middle-aged zealot who has been assigned to care for her. KEELY AND DU is the sixth collaboration for award-winning directors Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona. No release date has been announced.
