To find their friends in Old Town, Dutch and the team take a warrant ordered by the Company officer who is controlling the area while it is on lockdown. With help from Alvis, they track down a prison escapee who took a dangerous chemical weapon. Meanwhile, Johnny urges Pawter to use her Qreshi ties to get aid to Old Town.
- Annie: Another solid episode! I really love how the supporting characters of Alvis, Pawter and Pree are given more screen time and depth. And how the Killjoys are willing to risk everything for them, like a dysfunctional family. Not sure about Turin and his alliance with the Killjoys – can he be trusted? And Jelco is my new least favorite a-hole on the show!
- Kris: I liked this episode a lot! Lots of stuff going on, as always. It was a natural progression from the premiere, with us catching up with the rest of our supporting characters. We also get a new villain in Jelco. I like how seamlessly Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers work together and that we see how much all of the people in their circle mean to them.
- Stephanie: While I was very happy to see familiar faces and see how much love and affection our core group has for one another, I had a couple of issues with this episode. The pacing felt a little too frenetic for me. There was a lot going on, and I wonder if some of it could have been saved for a subsequent episode. Also, I’m disappointed in the Tighmon storyline for fridging a POC, albeit one only introduced in this episode, to further the storyline of a (presumably) white character. But I’m excited by the possibilities created at the end of this episode.
- Back to Old Town to return Pree to The Royale and find Pawter and Alvis
- Alvis has gotten a bit darker since we last saw him — using himself as bait to get supplies to help Pawter, etc. His encounter with Tighmon encourages him to take more direct action against the Company, but he can’t gas Pawter and Hills. Now he has a place on Lucy and potentially some sparkage with Dutch.
- Hills! NOOOOOO!
- Pawter has toughened up over the last 10 days. She is now in the (protective?) custody of The Company, but Johnny slips her a communicator.
- Turin is surprisingly not dead but does not appear to be a Level 6. He remains skeptical as ever and recruits the team to help him investigate who is really controlling the RAC. He says Khlyen and his lot destroyed the Red 17 base on Arkyn and scarpered off somewhere.
- Pree was a warlord with amazing hair, and he did something worse than put a knife through a guy's hand to get The Royale. Hm.
Things Made Us Happy
- The team is reunited! While we hope that the issues between D’avin and Dutch haven’t been completely papered over, it’s nice to see them back together as a unit.
- Dutch and D’avin both putting their hands on Johnny’s bouncing knees
- Pawter's complete nonchalance about the mummy
- “That makes no sense.” “Because I’m angry.”
- Dutch, Pawter, and Pree beating up on Gared
- Johnny’s initial love of “the wall”: “Forgive me, I’m aroused.” “Mad. Wall is mad.”
- Johnny sneakily giving Pawter a comm device so that they can keep in touch with her
- Scarbacks haven’t been on Arkyn for 200 years? Whaaaaaaaat?
- And what was with Dutch’s reflection going all Peter Pan's shadow on her? It’s definitely a hint about Dutch’s presence in D’avin’s shared memory, but what does it mean?
