Khlyen (Rob Stewart) and Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) are human now, but Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) is somehow still Hullen. She was inside a Khlyen Cube during the death of the green, so it is possible that the cube offers a connection to a pool of green in another place far enough away to not have been affected by the spores (see episode 4.10). The Khlyen Cube is probably based on Hullen technology, and up till now we really hadn’t seen it do much. On Arkyn, it worked like an elevator. This time, when Jaq enters the cube, it disappears, but not all at once. The cube’s outline remains visible as it rotates and reduces in apparent size, as though it is tumbling into a multi-dimensional wormhole. Continue reading →
Jaq (Jaeden Noel) and Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) on an unknown planet outside The Quad. One wonders, why the bow and arrows and where did she get them?
Cage fighting and Corin Jeers, two things that were a part of the very first episode of KILLJOYS (Bangarang) are also part of this one. Jeers was the first person to be “locked and served” by Dutch and Johnny on KILLJOYS. In Bangarang, the fight was between D’Avin and John. In this one, Dutch gets entered into a prison fight tournament called the Bellaxion.
Originally ten families controlled Qresh. When Khylen and the Yardeens left Qresh for Arkyn (see Episode 3.7), the family lost all of its lands and power, leaving The Nine to rule. We know the names of the nine familes of Qresh from previous episodes (mostly from Necropolis Now, which was written by Andrew de Angelis, who also wrote this episode). They are: Derrish, Hyponia, Kendry, Lahani, Nenodall, Rinn, Simms, Trus, and Traclus. The Bellaxion is being run by Evi and Sylas of Land Robbel, so either one of the families has been renamed, or there is a new clan on Qresh. Continue reading →
After contriving her own reawakening, Zeph wakes Turin (Patrick Garrow) and Pree (Thom Allison). Between the three of them, they locate a hidden nest of Black Root ships being used to seed the clouds of Westerley with mind-wipe chemicals, and blow up about a third of them in an attempt to slow down the terraforming process. This makes The Lady aware that the rebellion is bigger than Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers. (The hidden airfield is located at latitude 43.7 and longitude 79.13 on Westerley. On Earth, 43.7 North and 79.13 West is a spot very close to Toronto.)
Meanwhile, Dutch and the boys fail to escape from what turns out to be a prison ship. Their escape attempt impresses the Warden (played by Rachael Ancheril, who also plays twin witches on WYNONNA EARP). The Warden enlists their aid to stop an assassination, which they manage to do in short order, despite being outed as Killjoys to the prison population.
Would-be assassin Calvert (Anastasia Phillips) offering D’Avin advice on how to survive the prison psych ward is the best scene of the episode. (Phillips was also Vera Burr in the 2012 Global TV series BOMB GIRLS.) Continue reading →
