Killjoys - Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye

"Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye" marks a turning point in the show's First Season, the true fallout of which may take several episodes to be resolved. Just as the search for Khlyen (Rob Stewart) hits a dead end, the search for D'Avin's (Luke Macfarlane) doctor picks up with the discovery of a mental patient suffering similar symptoms who was treated by Doctor Yeager's (Amanda Tapping) former assistant (Sarain Boylan) who has turned the military programming into a lucrative cash source in the middle of the exclusive drug and sex market known as Utopia. And it's on Utopia where D'Avin and Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) give finally into their mutual attraction leaving John (Aaron Ashmore) in an uncomfortable position of third wheel.

John isn't the only one who has to deal with the fallout of Dutch and D'Avin's lust as tracking down Yeager leads the doctor to reactivate D'Avin's training and send the mind-controlled soldier after his partners leading to a throwdown between Dutch an D'Avin and John getting a prolonged stay in a medical bay planetside. I've been against the show pairing D'Avin and Dutch together but I do like how they handle John's reaction which isn't simple jealousy but a complicated reaction of seeing the two people he cares most about make a decision he knows will end badly for all three of them.

Deciding to break the patient out of the sanitarium also gets Dutch gets temporarily arrested leading to the reappearance of Seyah (Mayko Nguyen) who agrees to get the RAC agent released in exchange for a future favor. I'm guessing Dutch is going to regret that decision, although perhaps not as much as the shame of D'Avin's condition forcing her to become the world-class killer she has tried so hard to forget just to keep John's brother from killing her.
