Dutch and D'avin retrieve Johnny and Pawter from Old Town and plan to go after Jelco in Spring Hill. However, Jelco proves to have information relevant to Dutch's interests, so she saves him from the angry people of Old Town, who take Dutch hostage instead.
- Stephanie: I was deeply engaged with this episode. I had several moments where I found myself sitting forward in my chair because I was worried or excited or engrossed by what was happening. However, I was disappointed with the choice to kill Pawter, even though I think we all saw it coming.
- Kris: I liked a lot of this episode, but I HATED part of it. Sadly, I think that one part of the episode has overshadowed the other aspects in my mind. But I really loved that Dutch and Johnny got a chance to talk about things, and that Johnny reaffirmed his dedication to Dutch. Also, I do think this episode was a really solid setup for an interesting finale.
- Annie: This great, very intense episode really drew me in on the strength of the character moments and the acting. Pawter’s decision about the wall was just awful to watch, but it could be logically understood. Major Johnny and Dutch BFF feels! Even though I suspected Pawter’s demise, I still hated and was shocked at the moment it happened. I really loved the moments of humor sprinkled throughout what was an otherwise serious, grim episode.
- Dutch challenges Pawter about getting Johnny involved with her plans. Pawter maintains that Johnny made his own decisions, which he did, but Dutch still blames her because she knows Johnny wouldn’t have refused to help her because of who he is.
- Johnny good naturedly points out that both Pawter and Dutch are telling him what he can’t do in this episode. Dutch champions people making their own choices, but she struggles with Johnny making dangerous choices because she loves and needs him so much.
- Pawter decides to sacrifice the few for the many, and she manipulates the people trapped in Old Town to run into the wall and short it out. Poor naive Pawter thought she had out-ruthless-ed Delle Seyah, but she hadn’t.
- D’avin took a secondary role this week, but he was an important counterpoint to the more serious stuff going on with Dutch, Johnny, and Pawter. We had fun seeing him have so much fun: working with Johnny, stunning the guards, and blowing up Spring Hill.
- Lucy also served as a thankfully lighthearted element of this episode with her great statement about not wearing pants and her battle with catty AI Julian. Killjoys computers are so sassy!
- Pree got a fantastic scene, showcasing his grit and loyalty to Dutch. Too bad he wasn’t around otherwise!
