Killjoys - A Skinner, Darkly

"A Skinner, Darkly" offers two separate stories before bringing Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) home. Before he can get there, however, Johnny will learn the (disappointing) truth about both his missing friend and Clara (Stephanie Leonidas) and the young woman (Tommie-Amber Pirie) wearing her weaponized arm when he uncovers the facts about a re-skinning operation which is using the Hullen ooze to allow others to take on the appearance of the doctor's (Viktoria Modesta) victims. The audience isn't the only one disappointed in the outcome, as Johnny (thankfully) heads home calling an end to his solo travels.

In the episode's B-story, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and D'Avin (Luke Macfarlane) put three nerds (Kelly McCormack, Erik Knudsen, and Luc Trottier) through the paces in a simulation designed to see if any of them are field worthy and can help in the coming battle against the Hullen. Neither storyline is much of a stand-out as events are mainly used to keep the team apart for another episode before bringing them together for what's to come. Also, "A Skinner, Darkly" makes no mention of D'Avin taking one of the recently discovered ships and piloting to who-knows-where at the end of last week's episode which creates a rather large plot hole.
