Killjoys - Ship Outta Luck

While Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), and D'avin (Luke Macfarlane work on getting out of the prison they've been sent to, a reawoken Zeph (Kelly McCormack) enlists some help to slow down the Lady's terraforming project. Although the Killjoys fail in their escape attempt, they do gain the notice of the space-prison's warden (Rachael Ancheril) who offers them a deal in helping to prevent an assassination attempt inside her prison. As for Zeph, she, Pree (Thom Allison), and Turin (Patrick Garrow) manage to make a small dent in the lady's plan by destoying several of the ships she uses to seed the clouds with her mind-controlling rain.

"Ship Outta Luck" offers some nice twists in building up to our heroes' escape attempt (involving Johnny momentarily frying his brother's brain) only to be sent into an even more violent part of the prison where they manage to both do the warden a favor and make a new friend. For an episode that features our heroes beaten and throw in jail, there's quite a bit of humor as Team Awesomeforce refuses to give in to despair. The resulting misadventures also offer the seed of a new plan for Dutch who knows right now the Killjoys don't stand a chance against the Lady on their own. The episode also introduces a new character in Nucy who might be just what John needs to get through the shitstorm our Killjoys have found themselves in.
