Loving this show. So much of what I wanted to discuss has already been outlined by others, but just wanted to comment on a few things anyway. I love to see other people's insights - and thank you so much for your thoughtful reviews. There don't seem to be many other reviews out there. I can't believe it is only a 10 episode run. And that it hasn't been renewed yet. I don't know anything about Space as a company - do they announce renewals early or at the last minute? I still suspect Johnny is in denial with his voluntary friend zoning and she's my sister stuff. Not because I like triangles (so done to death) or because I don't believe men and women can be platonic friends (in real life of course they can), but because it's television. 99 out of 100 writers are going to go there at some stage - because there seems to be a general belief that that is what works and that it somehow has to happen. D'Avin does have his shirt off an awful lot. I'm not complaining about that, but a few more funny and insightful one liners would do more for his character than a continuously exposed torso. With only three episodes to go I'm not sure how much more developed the overall story lines are going to be able to get - I think a war in the quad might break out. Now that he's been mentioned, there will be more about Dutch's one time husband. Probably more about Dr Pawter's background - she claims to have influence and can get the med-techs to land, but it didn't help her stay out of jail. A nine family black-sheep?
I hope there is going to be more D’Avin shirtless scenes. ;)
Such a great episode. It was so emotional. This show has easily become my favorite Syfy show and maybe even my favorite summer show. I can't imagine not getting another season. The show is just so fantastic. It's no secret that Johnny is my favorite character and I completely agree that he is the heart of the team. From the preview we got last week I knew Johnny was going to get hurt but it was still so emotional. I never feared Johnny wouldn't be okay. But everyone's reaction and just everything made it so emotional. Lucy not knowing what to do was sad and then Dutch running to see him as he was in surgery. Pawter was awesome in the scene where she got to the ship to save Johnny. The med ship wasn't going to come and get them but she yelled at them and gave them her name and they came. That intrigues me on who she is. I wanna know more. I didn't really suspect anything of Dr. Jaeger. So I wasn't completely surprised that she was the bad guy. I was a little surprised that she gave the kill warrant. I kind of hope that her memory being wiped means that this is the end of D'avin and all this memory stuff but I also have a feeling that it's not because Jaeger said something to Dutch that made it seem like something big was going to happen and if that's true it will most likely involve soldiers and the experiments she was running. I liked the scene between Johnny and Pree after he'd just walked in on D'av and Dutch. I liked it because when they were talking Johnny knew that things would go bad and he'd have to choose sides and he and Pree both knew he'd choose Dutch. I just thought that said a lot about Johnny and Dutch's relationship. I also liked how after John was stabbed Dutch was there with him the whole time. She never said anything but just her reaction showed that he is the most important to her and that if she had to make a decision ever she'd choose Johnny. At least that's what I got from it. I can't believe there's only 3 episodes left. I feel like the show just started. I need more episodes and seasons. It's been a long time since I've loved a show this much especially a new show.
I miss it having Defiance reviews on TV Fanatic
Great recap! And amazing episode. Just one quick word about Pawter. When she's on the ship to rescue John, and calls the med ship, they reply that they can't go in that sector. And then Pawter tells them her name and they agree. Seyah. Her name is Seyah. One of the most powerful families. Can we assume that she's related to Delle Seyah?? That puts a whole new spin on her story!
Was it Seyah? Interesting... Can't believe I missed that.
I heard that too! I thought it might be a title for those in the nine families if not a direct relation.
They're all so involved in their various romantic entanglements that they have little time to focus on their jobs as cops! Andy and Sam are too cutesy for words! I stopped watching halfway through this episode.
Some people are too harsh with this show. It's a mess, yes, but it's a funny mess. This show is just the right kind of entertainment for the summer time, and it is does not need to ne taken too seriously (like people did with "Lost", which was full of islands disappearing in time and immortal brothers fighting for the Good and the Evil... I mean, come on!).
There was so much to this episode that it is hard to address it all. First, and this is nitpicking, but it kept bothering me throughout the episode. The drastic change in Dutch's hair and makeup in this one were too much. She doesn't need the dark black goth look around her eyes and the bangs make her hair look like a hat/wig.(look at the difference in the earlier pics) Okay, not important, but hopefully they aren't really going to make that the thing. (and it was there from the beginning of the episode, so wasn't just her dressing up for the utopia scene) Pawter redeemed herself a bit in this one, not completely after the ridiculous way she manipulated D'avin, but somewhat. The whole sex scene was groan worthy.. one of those, oh great, here we go with an unnecessarily stupid love triangle. .. but they managed to save the day with the plot twist with the doctor controlling D'avin and programming the kill order for him to take out his team, like she had done before. She told him he was responsible, but she was lying and admitted to the lie when Dutch forced her to. So, now we know for sure that it wasn't him, or anything in his mental state, which makes Dutch's last statement so poignant. She thought she had a kindred soul in D'avin, someone who did something so against his moral fiber that he was suffering from the idea that he was capable of such a thing.. the same way she feels about herself. But it turns out it wasn't him at all.. so she is back to being alone in her guilt about her past.

As I mentioned in my review, I didn't find anything wrong with the sex scene. As a matter of fact, if you go back to the pilot D'av had been attracted to her since day one. Like Pree said, it was just a matter of time. I think fans will find it interesting the way the whole situation plays out. Jaeger did say they underestimated D'avin's desire to kill. I do think he's not altogether there and unpredictable as a Killjoy. That said, he's not a killer like Dutch was trained to be. So yes she's aline in her guilt. Didn't notice the hair/make up thing at all by the way. Sorry. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
Dutch's hair is always fake- it's a weave. I think the loose really wavy hair of the first episodes looks worse.

I liked the part where D'Av was telling Dutch "That wasn't the real me" and she replied "But it WAS the REAL Me!"
100% agree. My favorite line!
Best episode this season so far.
