Killjoys - Reckoning Ball

The penultimate episode of Killjoys' Third Season deals primarily with D'Avin (Luke Macfarlane) attempting to come up with a plan to stop Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) that doesn't involve Dutch's (John-Kamen) death as well. The idea of leading her crazy doppelganger into a trap through a fake memory placed within the Green is a good one, but (as is often the case) things hardly go according to plan. Meanwhile, Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) has his hands full with the arrival of a pregnant Delle Seyah Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) under a flag of truce. And, based on the episode's final scene, she's not the only one who has made an unexpected visit.

The idea of a Reckoning Night where one makes peace with both friends and enemies before heading into battle is an interesting one which provides some unexpected small character moments between the two larger plotlines. Despite the attempts to convince her otherwise, Dutch is ready for her suicide mission understanding that Annela's death also means her own. However, the arrival of Aneela is certainly going to make things interesting As for Johnny, there's little doubt that his choice to arrest Kendry is going to bite the bounty hunter in the ass... if he lives through the next few days that is.
