Killjoys - Season One Finale

Dutch, Johnny, and D'avin have too much to do, and time is running out. Dutch needs Johnny to have his tech friend Carleen decrypt Khlyen's files so they can figure out how to combat Level 6. At the same time, Alvis has been thrown in jail and sentenced to death for an explosion at the Leith bazaar, and Dutch tells the somewhat reluctant Jaqobis boys that they need to save him.

Meanwhile, Carleen's decryption of Khlyen's files gets interrupted when Khlyen shows up and murders her. Khlyen heads to Old Town and takes the liquid back from Johnny's room, but before he can leave, he's confronted by Dav.

Dutch and Johnny, meanwhile, are on Qresh, because Delle Sayeh calls in the debt Dutch owes her, and she wants Dutch to be her bodyguard (and arm candy) while the Nine votes on whether to rescind the promise of Leith land to Westerleyns. While there, Dutch spots the genetic bomb that she and the boys encountered on Leith. Before they can do anything about it, Delle Sayeh sets off the bomb, vaporizing all her rival families, and committing a coup among the Nine.

Johnny and Dutch head back to Westerley. They're aboard Lucy when they learn that Alvis and the rebels are being blamed for the attack on the Nine, and in retaliation, the Company is sending bombers towards Old Town.

There's very little time to get everyone in Old Town to safety. Dutch and Johnny take Pree and everyone who can fit onto Lucy, while Alvis (who managed to free himself, with the help of some prayer beads … that turn out to be bullets) and Pawter lead the rebels to the underground tunnels.

The last thing we see is Dav at a Red-17 hospital. In the bed next to him, Fancy Lee is hooked up to medical devices, perhaps being biologically modified into a Level 6. When Dav makes it to the outside, he's floored by the realization that he's no longer on Westerley … or Leith … or Qresh. Welcome to the blasted-out remains of Arkyn.

Wow.. wow.. wow.. so much happened in the final episode of season one I don't even know where to start. Khlyen is such a horrible person, which makes him a good "big bad" for the series. I was shocked when he killed Carleen just like that.. and he didn't just kill her outright, he tortured her, which is worse. Alvis being arrested and put in jail was a given, but I did like the way he escaped. Dav confronting Khlyen by himself was stupid, but he held his own for a few seconds. Delle Sayeh is a another horrible person. Using Dutch like she did and then she kills one of the ruling houses with one of the more ingenious weapons, a genetic bomb that only disintegrates a certain genetic code. 

It was only a matter of time before the revolution started on Westerley but I didn't expect them to bomb the entire city and kill everyone (well with exception to those who got away). And of course we find Dav kidnapped and being held in the infamous Red 17 which was talked about through out the season.

They leave so many open and unanswered questions and at the time of watching there was no word if they were getting a second season or not. But as I'm writing this I'm happy to say they were officially picked up for a 10 episode second season... I can't wait!!!
