Synopsis: A gathering of the Nine leads to several murders, which sees the Killjoys having to investigate.
Review: As the Nine are gathered together to attend a funeral ceremony for the dead Killjoy Generals, Dutch tries to use the proceedings in order to get the Nine onside in the ongoing battle against the Hullen.
Things start to go pear shaped when Dutch, D’Avin and a few members of the Nine wind up trapped in a lift.
Things go from bad to worse as a couple of the Nine die via mysterious stab wounds. Which leads to Dutch and D’Avin having to investigate while simultaneously keeping everyone in the lift from sniping at each others throats.
Elsewhere the Hullen fleet is still traversing space and Aneela makes a dangerous discovery, which leads to her entire crew mutinying against her.
Back with the Nine. Johnny learns both the means and identity of the murderer and it happens to the sister of his dead girlfriend.
This was a really strong episode, which gave us a little more insight into the Nine and their motive, which is to basically abandon the quad and set up anew elsewhere. A plan, which has a lot of flaws as Dutch points out.
We get a really strong performance from Hannah John-Kamen in the duel role of Dutch and Aneela. The closing scene with Aneela walking by all of her dead crew is an extremely powerful visual and shows both her strength and vulnerability.
Also coming out the gate swinging this week is Aaron Ashmore whose closing speech to Louella Simms is given an extra emotional punch given what Johnny went through when he was on the same path of revenge.
With Aneela seemingly once again all alone and Seyah Kendry hooked up to some weird birthing machine. I look forward to seeing how all this will pan out in next weeks episode.
