Stephanie and Kris have some strong feelings about the deaths in the second season of Killjoys and discuss whether or not “fridging” happened, as well as an explanation of what that means. Don’t listen to this episode until you’ve finished watching the season!
- Introduced as a love interest for D’avin, which automatically made us nervous
- Good twist with her character, which fleshed her out, but it happens in the same episode she dies!
- We see Dutch shoot Sabine but her body is dragged off by presumably the Black Root at the end of “Heart-Shaped Box.” Was that scene intended to leave a door open for her to possibly return? Even if was, it seems unlikely that she will, especially given that the actress who plays her was cast in a lead role on The CW’s No Tomorrow.
- Not fridged but still frustrating
- Johnny suffered from an almost identical wound last season, and Pawter saved him!
- However, it was a logical conclusion to Pawter taking on a task too big for her and Johnny to handle themselves
- But if she had survived, it could have been really engaging to see her deal with making the controversial decision to sacrifice the people of Old Town to free them
- Possibility floated that Pawter could return next season as a Level 6, but we think that is unlikely given what was revealed in the finale
- Unlike Pawter, he chose his fate, which makes it something of a heroic death or at least a redemptive death
- Arguably, not a bad place for the character to exit the show given how much the audience’s perception of the character has changed
