If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/28/17

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

Last week on Syfy’s Killjoys, the trio of RAC bounty hunting agents started things off with a party to celebrate that Johnny was now finally a Level Five agent like his brother D’avin and their longtime teammate Dutch. The festivities were broken up by other RAC agents arriving to serve Johnny with an old warrant for killing Del Seyah. The orders come straight from the new Reclamation Apprehension Coalition overseer, Banyan Gray. Dutch and Turin stood up for Johnny, but when he admitted he killed her, a tense shoot out began. Johnny & Dutch made their escape with Pree the bartender, who is both a smuggler plus their sometime informant and ally.

Meanwhile, on the Hullen Armada Mothership, Dutch’s evil doppelgänger Aneela was acclimating the recently recruited and very much still alive Del Seyah. Aneela is the default leader of the Hullen species now that her father died in last season’s finale. Seyah was shown that the green goo that fuels her species can fully immerse them into any of their collected memories just by touching it.

Dutch and Johnny made their way to the Ohron moon, where they encountered the obscure group of outlaws known as the Ferran. We discovered that Pree is a disgraced former leader of their band, and he offered himself up to their justice in return for amnesty for both Dutch and Johnny. The Ferran then set up a triathlon competition to represents the two sides of the drama, and Pree picked Dutch as his champion. Cleverly, the Ferran selected Johnny as theirs, as he had already been granted entrance to their ranks by being on the run; that base qualification of “being on the run” is sacred to them and the primary cause of how they formed as a collective.

Back in Westerly, D’avin found proof on security cam footage that Seyah survived the time that Johnny shot her. He used this evidence to force Banyan Gray to cancel the warrant on his brother, but not before a RAC agent took Dutch & Johnny into custody during the third round of their forced contest. Pree was left to face death at the hands of the Ferrans, but let’s be honest, he’s too damned charming to just be executed by his former comrades.

The new nerd tech girl Zeph, who is akin to a future sci version of Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, finally conceived a way to take advantage of D’avin’s prior exposure to the goo, and she was able to send him into a recently created memory that confirmed Seyah is both alive and working with the Hullen. Pree and the Ferran rescued Dutch & Johnny from the rogue RAC agent who still held them as captives.

On the Mothership, Aneela actually saw D’avin invading their space psychically and she ejected him forcibly with a message: Tell Dutch Aneela is coming for her. The very last scene saw Dutch, D’avin, and Johnny all together agreeing to collaborate towards the ends of the Hullen perversion of humankind.

On tonight’s episode, “Attack the Rack,” the Killjoy rebels take drastic measures to clean house: a secret ops attack against their own Rack. But thanks to Aneela’s schemes and a mole among them, not everyone will make it out alive.

Don’t miss all the excitement tonight on Syfy at 8/7c.

In addition to this quickly escalating show, I will also be catching up on my Wynonna Earp & Dark Matter. (P.S. Be on the lookout for my upcoming August interview with Dark Matter/12 Monkey‘s Jeff Teravainen!!!)
