Killjoys Season 4 Episode 2 Review: Johnny Dangerously

at .

Hullen John is going to be fun. And dangerous.

In a desperate move to save his life, D'avin and Delle Sayeh sent John to the dark side on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 2.

And he liked it, liked it, yes, he did.

Saving Johnny - Killjoys

So, as if having Dutch in the Green Space and Hullen on pause all over the Quad isn't enough, now John's id is on the loose.

Gods help them all.

There was nothing new on Dutch, seemingly left dying in the Green Space on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 1.

Instead, things picked up shortly after the cliffhanger on Killjoys Season 3 Episode 10, and we got to find out what everyone else has been up to lately.

Not surprisingly, the Necropolis elevator wasn't the most spaceworthy of vehicles, and it crashed on some remote planet outside the Quad.

After watching Delle Sayeh's humorous flashbacks of their time adrift, it was a wonder that they didn't kill each other.

The friction between Delle Sayeh and John remained evident, with D'avin forced into the role of mediator. After all, she's carrying his child, even if he did have nothing to do with that.

Naturally, the first people they met tried to rob them, even if Delle Sayeh did kick their ass. The problem was that the encounter reaggravated John's punctured lung. 

While they did find shelter at a nearby outpost, there was no doctor and few medical supplies. So D'avin and Delle Sayeh had to resort to her magic green Hullen goo to save John.

Delle Sayeh admitted right up front that she had no idea how such a small amount of goo would affect John. 

Apparently, the end result was the joker's wild.

Hullen John was not sweet. Instead, he was violent, ruthless and scheming. And, like any junkie, he was looking for his next fix, although no one figured that out until way too late.

As the Killjoys usually do, it appeared that D'avin, John and a reluctant Delle Sayeh wanted to help the "farmers," up until the point that the con job was unveiled. Still, they were willing to help out in exchange for a ship to get off the planet.

No one knew it, but John was working his own con. After all, that's his background. He sent the guards after Delle Sayeh and Bea, then took an unconscious D'avin on a road trip to the nearest goo pool.

Was Dutch appealing to John from the Green Space? Or was John's conscience just taking the form of Dutch, to appeal to his better side?

Well, John only killed the men waving guns around, so that's a positive, right?

The plan was to get John back to civilization and cleanse him, but he certainly doesn't seem to favor that idea. He liked having a finger banger last season, and this is so much more enhanced. 

So he's going to fight going back to human.

Meanwhile, back at the RAC ... 

Zephyr and Pip, that couple who was thrown together by war, was hiding in a lab at the RAC station, surrounded by "dolls," shut-down Hullen.

In Dutch's absence, Zeph had taken charge (granted only of Pip). But that newfound confidence allowed her to lead Pip through the gauntlet of comatose Hullen and escape to the former Hullen command ship, which has been commandeered by the human resistance, led by Turin.

It was amusing to see Zeph back down Turin and get approval for her daring plan to jump into Necropolis. It will be interesting to see how that self-confidence holds up when the Killjoys finally reunite.

Leave it to Garrett to find the former Scarback Zeph needed to create a map of Necropolis for her jump.

Feruza looks like an interesting addition to the cast. Is she going to be a Scarback replacement for the late Alvis, or will she be more short-term?

Thanks to Zeph's jump, now everyone on the home front knows what happened to Dutch, John, and D'avin. However, that's not the same as knowing where they are now.

Their only option is to somehow find Lucy, who placed a tracker on the elevator. That could lead them to John and D'avin. Reuniting with Dutch is going to be a more difficult proposition. 

Has Pip been compromised? One minute, he was being attacked by a Hullen possessed by a robotic spider. The next, he was upright, like nothing had happened. So is he the Lady's spy in the midst of the humans?

To follow the Hullen saga, watch Killjoys online.

Will John allow himself to be made human again? Can Delle Sayeh save herself? Where is Lucy hiding?

Killjoys Season 4 Episode 2 Quotes

Hey, if I have to separate the two of you again, I will turn this hike around.

D'avin [to John and Delle Sayeh]

Delle Sayeh: What are the odds there's a decent spa around here?
John: Why are we still with her? We should have left her on the elevator to fend for herself.
D'avin: Well, you know what they say. The pregnant enemy of my enemy is my alien baby mama.
Delle Sayeh: Can you get that on a mug?
