With the Hullen fleet making their approach, the war is on in The Quad. However, Delle Seyah and Aneela have a few tricks up their sleeves, and the war starts without Dutch. Turin, Fancy, and Pree try to handle the Hullen soldiers, while D'avin and Johnny try to find Dutch so that they can help her face Aneela.
Kris, Annie, and Stephanie discuss the Season 3 finale of Killjoys, “Wargasm.”
- Annie: Oh my god, what an amazing, action packed finale! So many of the things that make Killjoys great – amazing special effects, humor, Dutch fight-y scenes and Jaqobis brothers stuff. I really loved how the final battle didn’t go as planned, with Fancy, Turin, Zeph, Pree and Gared all getting their moments, with lots of classic Killjoys humor/one liners in there. The final confrontation between Dutch and Aneela had a great twist as they found a common goal in going after The Lady. I’m looking forward to who/what The Lady is (though did it have to be spiders??) and how she’ll manifest herself in season 4.
- Kris: What a satisfying season finale! I love so much about this episode — the mushy pre-war stuff, everything Zeph says and does, the Green Queens scenes, the Jaqobis brothers, and the Dutch/Aneela showdown-turned-teamup. Even though we were pretty sure it was coming, the “I remember you” moment was AMAZING and cathartic and I love it.
- Stephanie: I liked this episode the first time I watched it, but I loved it on rewatch. I think I got bogged down in the firefights the first time, which aren't really my thing, but the second time through I basked in all the great character moments. I loved Zeph as the worried mother hen, especially when she told Dutch that she is a really good person. The Jaqobis brothers made a great pair as always. Their reactions to Delle Seyah holding their hands in the elevator were priceless. Even Turin got a good laugh out of me with his “Just let me have my hero moment, you piece of [crap]!” The confrontation between Dutch and Aneela did not disappoint. The fight choreography was great, and I loved that Dutch asserted that she matters as she was making her last stand.
Thoughts & Questions
- Nooooo! Hunky Monk! We're sad that he was killed, but it wasn't surprising given that Pawter died in the Season 2 finale. And compared to Pawter's death, Hunky Monk's doesn't feel like a waste of narrative potential the way Pawter's did. We would have liked for him to have stuck around, more could have been revealed/learned about him, but this point was not a terrible place for him to exit.
- Why WHY did the episode begin with an allusion to Da Vinci's The Last Supper? Why are you making us worry like that, Lovretta?!?
- How did Gander know the location of the sonic disrupter? Fancy asks Turin about it too, so it seems potentially narratively significant. Is there another Hullen mole amongst the ranks?
- Thank GOODNESS Johnny knew that Aneela wasn't Dutch.
- The writers haven't tried to woobify Aneela and Delle Seyah, but they aren't two-dimensional villains either. Delle Seyah in particular is so enjoyable as an adversary.
- Stephanie supposes she can see why the writers threw Zeph and Pippin together, but she's not giving up her #GiveZephAGirlfriend campaign.
- Coming out of Season 3 we have Aneela, Dutch, and Khlyen preparing to face The Lady in the green space, a pause in Aneela's Hullen war against the Quad but The Lady's Hullen just arrived, and Johnny, D'avin, and Delle Seyah floating in space in an elevator, D'avin trying to drive Delle Seyah crazy with baby questions.
