Killjoys - Sporemaggedon

The Killjoys season finale finds Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), and D'avin (Luke Macfarlane) all entering the Green for a final battle against the Lady. There a few twists here as D'avin's anti-Green powers prove not to be the answer to stopping the Lady, the Lady toying with Johnny allowing for a return of sorts for Pawter (Sarah Power), a sudden amnesia causing disease is released in Westerly, and the Lady has one final trick up her sleeve to escape the Green just when in looks like our heroes had saved the day, thus resetting the show for Season Five.

Although I was hoping for a definitive end the to Green storyline and getting the bounty hunters back to catching bounties again, "Sporemaggedon" makes some intriguing choices wiping all the core characters' memories (but what about those in orbit or on other worlds?) and giving fans a look at Johnny and Dutch together. With D'av tasked with finding Jaq (Jaeden Noel), I'm guessing he holds the key to bringing Team Awesome Force back together and defeating the Lady once and for all. I'll be curious to see if Noel returns in the role, or if the show decides to age the character forward again. The apparent destruction of the Green suggests the end of Aneela, but with the Lady released who can say just how crazy things might get when Killjoys returns next year.
