Killjoys Season 4 Episode 4 Review: What to Expect When You're Expecting...An Alien Parasite

at .

World's worst patient.

Delle Seyah did finally give birth on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 4, running everyone on board Lucy ragged in the process.

I like Delle Seyah, Act II. She's a snarky bitch to all those around her, but I chalk that up to hormones and missing Aneela.

Birth Of a Child - Killjoys

Sure, she was a murderer and a schemer in her first life. That was perfectly normal behavior among the Nine. That was how they got ahead and stayed on top.

Most of the Nine fled the Hullen hoards. Delle Sayeh, albeit not voluntarily, went the other way: If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

She served Aneela well as consigliere and lover throughout Killjoys Season 3 and was right to feel abandoned, just like John and D'avin did when Aneela and Dutch went into the Green on Killjoys Season 3 Episode 10.

Based on common interests, she threw her lot in with the Jacoqis brothers, which made sense. She was carrying D'avin's child, so he would protect her (not that she needed much protection). She and John tacitly agreed not to kill each other, at least until Dutch and Aneela had been rescued.

That flew out the window after Sweet Johnny became Evil Johnny and left her for the debtor prison's guards on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 2. Those Hullen just got no loyalty.

When she led the prisoner revolt on Killjoys Season 4 Episode 3, it almost seemed like she was mellowing, doing something for others. More likely, it was pure self-interest, to get her out of that hellhole.

Entitled Delle Seyah was back with a vengeance in the episode, expecting everyone to kowtow to her and get that thing out of her. She was en fuego.

In her previous life, Delle Seyah would have used a surrogate if she wanted a child, a purely hypothetical situation. Now she was the surrogate. Ain't karma a bitch?

So there she was, doing the J's worst Lamaze breathing and reading a comic book while Zephyr pondered how to remove a child growing exponentially fast from inside her.

Zephyr figured out a solution, far too simply, I thought, and finally delivered the baby. Now everyone is stuck with a human Delle Sayeh stll lacking any maternal instincts. Is D'av destined to be the only parent for that child?

Now it's time for a name-that-baby contest. I vote for Bubba. List your choice in the comments below!

I'm also enjoying confident Zephyr, who has become almost an equal crew member this season, unlike, say, Pip and Pree.

Zephyr has always been brilliant. Now she just doesn't seem to give a damn about what others think. She's acting rather than hesitating. It was probably all those months on the RAC with only Pip for human company.

That doesn't mean she has lost that adorable social awkwardness. An example would be that moment when she tried to put Delle Sayeh at ease by telling her that she was birthing cows at a young age. Just what royalty wants to be compared to -- bovines.

But she has the scientific chops, even though she was experimenting on a human, err, Hullen. That transfusion idea she had was genius, even though it was too much for the baby to endure.

Best of all, she cured Johnny.

That was certainly some radical surgery that only someone with her biological background could have concocted. Then she turned around and used it to save Delle Sayeh and her baby as well. She shouldn't expect any thanks, though.

It was fun to see the nasty side of John, for a time. But ping-ponging between human and Hullen was killing him, so it was time for that storyline to end. It's a problem when D'av is the sensitive one of the crew.

Dutch was too harsh with D'avin about his choice of how to save John. She would have done the same had she been in his situation. They both made hard decisions and did what they had to do.

Those Dutch flashbacks were a mess.

Here's what I took away from those: The Lady is the nasty, overwhelming big bad. Aneela means well, but she's a little crazy from the holes Khlyen made in her memory. Khlyen is too damn cryptic for his own good.

After enjoying her visit to Lucy, Dutch was fixing to dive back into the Green to save Aneela, or maybe tag-team with her, as they struggle to keep The Lady there instead of in the real world, metaphysically speaking.

I'm open to other interpretations.

I'm just glad Pree's on Lucy since the Hullen were waking up on the Armada. I hope Garek comes out OK, as I'm sure either Turin or Fancy will get sacrificed for dramatic purposes.

And The Lady wants Bubba as the start of a new human-Hullen race. That's not good.

To determine what Khlyen's story meant, watch Killjoys online.

How soon before we actually see The Lady, whatever she is? With John cleansed, is Pip the new sleeper agent? Will Delle Sayeh be friend or foe?
