Killjoys - Come the Rain

While sending out Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and D'Avin (Luke Macfarlane) on a fake warrant in an attempt to get the two to work out their problems, Johnny's (Aaron Ashmore) R&R in the bar is interrupted by thieves who take the place hostage while escaping the acid rain falling from the sky and the authorities on their trail. In the course of saving one of the robbers' lives, John learns more about Pawter (Sarah Power), her troubles, and her what brought her to the back-end of the galaxy. But with no help on the way, and an anxious squad of soldiers ready to burst in guns a blazing it's up the the RAC agent to bring the situation to an end in a way that spares the lives of the hostages.

In the other half of the episode, while trapped aboard Lucy (Tamsen McDonough) until they find a solution to the mess they've gotten themselves into, Dutch and D'Avin are forced to share truths about themselves in John's attempt to make the pair work through their issues and repair the trust destroyed by D'Avin's murderous freak-out. In the end the situation is resolved, leaving the state of the team much the same as when the episode began. Given the set-up of the show I don't see D'Avin being dumped anytime soon, but with John washing his hands of the situation it's up to his brother to find a way win back Dutch's trust and put the team back together.
