Dutch: “I not judging you right now because I don’t have any right to. Whatever you’ve done, I promise you I’ve done worse. If you can’t be forgiven, what chance is there for me?”
“Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye ” is the July 31 episode of “Killjoys.” Warning: this article does contain spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “Killjoys” airs Friday nights at 8 p.m. CT on Syfy.
Time to get some D’avin answers! The mysterious Dr. Jaeger has been found. As soon as the words “psychotic break” left her mouth, it was clear that it was just a lie to throw D’avin off the truth. What was annoying was how everyone just believed it.
No one questioned it. D’avin accepted it made sense because he’s been through hell, and he was in shock more than anything. Dutch or Johnny should have thrown out the possibility that this Company doctor was lying. It’s not like they hold the Company in high esteem or anything. Did this bother anyone else?
We all knew this day was coming – D’av and Dutch had sex. This was, sadly, inevitable. What’s surprising was that good things came out of this. Johnny’s conversation with Pree allowed him to say why his partner and brother having sex concerned him.
Johnny doesn’t like Dutch in that way, and he’s concerned that the fallout when things go bad (it’s inevitable according to him) will force him to take sides, and he will choose Dutch. This tells a lot about Johnny’s relationships with both D’av and Dutch. To Johnny, Dutch is more like family than his own brother is.
Another thing that helped the D’avin and Dutch sexy times not ruin an entire episode was that almost immediately afterwards, D’avin turned into the super soldier that killed his entire squad. Now instead of having to deal with awkwardness because D’avin and Dutch had sex, we will have awkwardness because D’avin tried to kill all of them.
It’s likely that the next episode will pick up after a couple weeks or more so that Johnny has time to recover, but hopefully, we won’t just skip past everyone coping with what D’avin did. It wouldn’t feel right to go back to everyone being friendly again as if D’avin didn’t just try to kill them all.
Yes, it wasn’t D’avin’s fault and everyone knows that, but this doesn’t mean that the trust is completely there. Wouldn’t you be a little more cautious around the person who just stabbed you almost to death? Even if it is just instinct where Dutch or Johnny takes a step back whenever D’avin gets angry or is armed, there need to be little things that show that everything is not the way it was.
D’avin has the closure he was been searching for, but just because someone made you do it, the pain and guilt doesn’t magically go away. Dutch is proof of this (although her situation is slightly different). Maybe this can be something that Dutch and D’avin continue to bond over. The similarities between their two situations is intriguing, and it allows both of them the opportunity to talk about their sins with someone who might understand what they are going through.
While there’s nothing wrong with exploring D’avin’s and Dutch’s relationship, it would be nice to focus on the other relationships more. Johnny’s relationships with both D’avin and Dutch have only shined in moments. We catch glimpses, but we don’t explore them like we have been exploring D’avin’s and Dutch’s relationship.
Johnny’s relationships with Dutch and D’avin are just more interesting. We have brothers who haven’t seen each other in years, and a six-year long partnership that has built amazing trust. Is there a relationship you want to see more of?
