This hand-binding is part of the opening scene. Are Pree and Gared married now?
Dutch introduces the season finale poetically. “The universe has a memory,” she says. “That’s all time really is. Our whole life to hold in moments, the sweet and sour, the kisses and the scars, our beginnings and goodbyes, all written down in time. Recorded, so the universe will know we were here, so we won’t be forgotten. We are all made of memories.”
D’Avin buys Johnny a piece of land on Leith, 200 acres of RAC-owned ranch land with a little creek out back, complete with robot goats. (Johnny asks if there are goats, and D’Avin replies, “Johnny, they’re robot goats.”) The implication of that exchange is that real goats exist on Leith, although we have seen none of them. It does raise a question though. Exactly what would the purpose of a robot goat be? It will be interesting to find out what farming options are available for John. No livestock has ever been seen on the show, and the only visible crop has been hokk. Eating habits in The Quad are a mystery because we almost never see anybody eat anything on screen. There are peach trees on Leith (at least according to Sabine), but Johnny’s newly-acquired land did not seem to contain an orchard. Continue reading →
Young Aneela and her father prepare to leave Qresh for Arkyn.
Dutch takes off with Lucy and Zeph to have Aneela’ neurons injected into her brain. For this purpose, Zeph uses an abandoned Company lab. Since Zeph knew where the old Company lab was, and knew her way around it, it seems likely she once worked for the Company. While Dutch is gone, D’Avin takes command of the war effort, and successfully enlists the formerly Hullen RAC agents in the cause. Former Hullen Fancy Lee (Sean Baek) and D’Avin have a dialogue about loyalty and trust, and it’s nice to see Fancy in the role of leader, instead of as a lone wolf. (We still know very little about Fancy’s personal history.) Continue reading →
Gander (Ted Atherton), Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) and Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) just before Kendry reveals to Aneela that Khlyen is dead. . .
From last episode, we know what year it is in the KILLJOYS universe. It is six years after 10-5-6, and the date looks to be structured like dates in the Mayan Calendar. If so, then six years later would be 10-5-12. If one assumes that it is actually the Mayan calendar being used, and zero out the month and date, Mayan 10-5-6-0-0 converts to the Gregorian date 4 September 934 C.E. Which would mean that events in the KILLJOYS Universe actually transpire in Earth’s past.
ANEELA:“I’m so pleased you survived the transfusion. I upgraded you from whatever gutter green that was inside of you.” SEYAH KENDRY:“What do you mean?” ANEELA:“Well, there are two strains of Hullen. Some were made to take orders. Some were born to give them. I made sure you played for my team.”
Some Hullen are, apparently, superior to others. Since Seyah Kendry now has the high-octane green goo in her veins, does that mean that she now has physical strength similar to that of Aneela and Gander?
Kendry goes against the advice of First Officer (?) Gander (Ted Atherton), and tells Aneela that Khlyen is dead. Both Kendry and Gander are spared in the murderous rampage that follows (indicating that, however self-indulgently violent Aneela may become in times of stress, she always retains some degree of self-control). After the bodies are removed, Gander tries to teach Kendry a lesson by forcing her to clean up the blood. One imagines that he will live to regret that action.
130 year old Hullen reintegration camp
Aneela is quite upset by the news of her father’s death, and at the end of the episode, seems about ready to give up. It is Seyah Kendry’s pep talk that inspires Aneela to carry on, and, given her past, it seems likely that Kendry could be moving into position for an attempted coup. Right now, Seyah Kendry and Aneela need one another.
Meanwhile, Dutch, D’Avin, Johnny and Zeph board one of those fancy Hullen spacecraft, and we get more historical information. The autopilot takes them to a snowy planet. Near their landing site, D’Avin and Dutch encounter a village which Dutch describes as a “time capsule from the first colonies”. (This is an indication that humans are not native to The J, but colonized the place in the fairly recent past.) The planet is subject to bursts of radiation from its primary. Populating the place are the Unseeing (human slaves of the Hullen (who have gone blind because of the radiation), and the Last Seer, a Hullen who was left behind by Khlyen to protect The Remnant. Both are waiting for The Undying (The Hullen) to return. What is this Remnant? The Last Seer implies that he knows, but won’t tell Dutch because, since she doesn’t know, The Remnant is not meant for her. The Last Seer does make this very revealing statement.
“Khlyen. That’s what he called himself anyway. I’d been running this reintegration camp for 100 years and along he comes to shut it down. Took the recruits. Left the human slaves and me…I’ve been waiting here for 30 years.”
From all that we can assume that the Hullen arrived in The J about 130 years previously. They constructed training facilities to enable them to learn how to behave like humans. Khlyen’s rebellion began about thirty years ago, or about the time Dutch was born.
SEYAH KENDRY: “I know what it’s like to have power fail you. To be betrayed. To lose everything you love. Everything falls, Aneela, from fathers to empires, but we are queens. And Queens rise.”
Could this be a clue as to why Dutch and Aneela are physically identical? Sian Alexis Young asked Michelle Lovretta on twitter: “Can you tell us when we find out why Dutch & Aneela look like twins?! Even down to their age?! Is it this season?!” Lovretta responded: “Yuuuuup. And ain’t nobody guessed.”
Zeph and Johnny do not get along. John is irrationally upset at Zeph for leaving the rest of them on the snowy planet with the unseeing ones and the holographic teacher. (She did the logical thing, of course. There was no point in everyone’s being captured.) In the end, John hands Zeph The Remnant and tells her: “Put your ego aside, and figure out how to open this for the team.”
LUCY:“I’ve missed your way with smart women, John.” JOHN:“I’ve missed you too, Luce. Wait, is that sarcasm?”
