KILLJOYS – Season 4 Episodes 6 & 7 – SPOILERS
Delle Seyah names her son Ozzman Kin Rit combining the name of her grandfather with Aneela’s family name. After an unsuccessful attempt at teaching him etiquette, she hands him a small metal object on a chain and says: “This is in case you are ever in trouble, and need my help. Emergencies only. And it has to be our little secret.” Then she makes use of an untraceable ship provided by D’Avin to get her back to Qresh, but, as she is leaving, she says that’s not where she’s going. In episode 4.1, the story Khlyen told Dutch began in a spaceport, (see previous post) and in the background a PA announcer said “Last call for boarding for the Q Cluster.” As Delle Seyah walks toward her ship, another PA announcer says exactly the same thing. Where is she going?
When Ozzie tells D’Avin about the name Delle Seyah gave him, his dad says he can pick his own name. In an effort to please his father, Ozzie chooses to be called Jaq (short for Jaqobis).
Ozzie has a limited sort of clairvoyance. He sometimes becomes aware of events that will happen in the very immediate future.
Khlyen is pretty clever for a dead guy. He embedded the sound of a pulsar in that story he told Dutch in the green. Lucy identifies the pulsar’s coordinates, but when they get there, they find themselves being drawn into what appears to be a black hole. (Of course it isn’t because that would be the end of things.) Lucy involuntarily lands on an unknown planet, which is probably circling the binary partner of the hidden pulsar.
On the planet, John locates a device that he calls “a magneto-optical trap used to mimic the properties of a black hole”. In other words, the pulsar has been camouflaged with a massive hologram and instead of a black hole’s gravity, Lucy had been latched onto by a tractor beam. Both the hologram and the beam are powered by the pulsar. (Pulsars are extremely stable objects, but it seems no one took note of a pulsar that “vanished” 250 years previously. It is then a reasonable assumption that pulsars are not used as navigational beacons in The J.)
We discover that Lucy is equipped with both coil and rail guns.
D’Avin and Ozzman left because D’Avin thought Dutch was a bad influence on the kid. (Ozzie walked in on Dutch as she was about to begin torturing a captured assassin, and she wanted to let him watch.) D’Avin and Ozzie are on their way to Telen, the Jaqobis’ home planet.
Meanwhile, Dutch is accosted by guards wielding technologically enhanced quarterstaffs, but once she identifies herself as Khlyen’s daughter, they become friendly, and point her in the right direction. In an otherwise empty room (with ancient Qreshi wall hangings) Dutch finds a cryopod, and inside it is Aneela’s mother, Yalena Kin Rit (Karen Glave). Khlyen had traced the movements of the Lady in the green and they all led back to this planet. (We get a flashback to 250 years ago when Aneela’s mom visited Khlyen at Red 17 HQ on Arkin.
At her own insistence, Khlyen took Aneela’s mother to see the place. He explained that he had a substance that, if introduced into a green pool, would kill everyone attached to the green. Hoping there was a way to save Aneela (and presumably all the other Hullen-infected folk) Aneela’s mother talked Khlyen into leaving the weapon with her.
Before Yalena goes back into stasis, she says the episode’s best line. After giving Dutch the weapon, she tells her: “If you can’t do the impossible, do the honourable. The thing I couldn’t do.”
Pree rescues Gared. They are assisted in their escape from the Hullen-occupied RAC by Weej (Ishan Morris). Weej is an interesting guy. He was once Hullen, then Zeph modified him to make him co-operative and not subject to The Lady’s commands. When the rest of the Hullen were frozen, he was ambulatory. When they were reanimated by The Lady, he remembered his name. His instincts are still Hullen-like. He suggests sacrificing Pree and Gared, and Turin has to explain to Weej why this would be unethical.
Weej calculates that Turin will almost certainly be killed if he goes to rescue Pree and Gared. So he knocks Turin out, and rescues the two himself. (It is the second time Weej has saved Turin’s life.) In the process, it is discovered that the Hullen on the RAC are being killed and the green is being drained from them to create a liquid pool for The Lady to use as an exit. (It might also be a way for Dutch to get back in to rescue Aneela.)
Pastel Supernova (the sexer whose session is interrupted by Dutch in “Baby, Faced Killer“) will be The Princess in I’LL TAKE YOUR DEAD, a horror film directed by Chad Archibald, about William (Aidan Devine), whose job it is to make corpses disappear. (There’s a gang war going on in his vicinity, and his farm is convenient for disposal operations.) Things get interesting when one of the bodies dropped off for disposal turns out to not be dead. William patches her up and becomes somewhat attached to her, but the folks who originally tried to kill her find out and want to finish the job. No release date has yet been announced.
Shaun Benson (The Hunter) will be Mr. Calder in I STILL SEE YOU, a film adaptation of the 2013 Daniel Waters novel “Break My Heart 1,000 Times” (which was the film’s original title). The film is set ten years after an apocalyptic event centered near Chicago killed nearly two million people, and left the world haunted by ghosts. Roni (Bella Thorne) receives a threatening message from beyond the grave, and joins forces with a mysterious classmate, descending into a shadowy place between the worlds of the dead and the living. She must race against time to stop a clever adversary determined to kill her. A trailer is available on YouTube. Filmed in and around Winnipeg, I STILL SEE YOU will be in select US theatres (and on VOD) on 12 October.
