Killjoys Review: The Hullen Have Eyes (Season 3 Episode 3)

Killjoys, Reviews

On Killjoys Season 3 Episode 3, “The Hullen Have Eyes,” Johnny learns that being back doesn’t mean that everything is how he left it.

It’s not surprising that he isn’t a fan of Zeph’s. He returns home to find out that his team has replaced him. It’s no longer the three of them against the world. Team Awesome Force is expanding, and Johnny’s just now learning about it.

The slightly antagonistic banter between Zeph and Johnny is hilarious, but what’s even better is when Johnny starts to mentor Zeph a little bit.

There’s a lot that the new nerd can learn from the old nerd, and it’s fun to watch Johnny try to be civil and work together with Zeph. They’re left on the ship and forced to work together to save Dutch and D’av, which is just fantastic.

Dutch: You’re back now, and we can figure it out like we always do, just more of us. Come on, she’s rough, so were you. Put your mentor pants on.

Johnny: I feel fat in them.

Zeph and Johnny working together actually makes Zeph a lot more likable. It’s entertaining to watch her give Johnny a run for his money.

On Killjoys Season 3 Episode 2, Zeph was the annoying, “I have to be right,” person. But on the Hullen ship, she shows her vulnerable side, just for a moment.

That moment shows us that she’s not always confident and determined to prove she’s right. She’s human, and she needs a pep talk every now and then just like the rest of us. How awesome is the scene where Johnny comforts her, by the way? #NerdPower.

Johnny’s still not a fan of Zeph’s, so there’s still a bit of an edge to his advice, but you have to admit it’s good advice.

One of the reasons I didn’t immediately fall in love with Zeph during Killjoys Season 3 Episode 2, is that she put the team at risk to prove she was right, and she didn’t suffer the consequences for it.

Even though Turin kicked her off the team, Dutch added her back on quickly thereafter. Then during this mission, it’s like Zeph never messed up in the first place.

Not so surprisingly, Zeph does the same thing during this mission. She still has not learned that being right doesn’t trump abandoning your team or putting them at risk.

Thankfully, Johnny will not let it slide, which makes sense. She put Dutch and D’av — Johnny’s family — at risk, and that’s never okay.

Hopefully, Johnny will keep his mentor pants on a little longer and help turn Zeph into a stellar member of Team Awesome Force. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to watching Johnny and Zeph interact more.

Johnny: As the old nerd, I’m telling you your job isn’t just to be right. It’s to be careful. It’s to protect them. The missions? They’re not labs. And Dutch and D’av are brave as shit, but they cannot do what we do, and they know it. If we tell them to run into fire, they will, so you better be sure that you can get back out.

As much as I love Johnny and Dutch’s relationship, it’s great that Johnny opened up to D’av about what it’s been like to come back to the team and find that things have changed.

It feels like a while since we’ve spent time with the Jacqobis boys, and I’ve missed their one-on-one scenes. Haven’t you?

One thought on “Killjoys Review: The Hullen Have Eyes (Season 3 Episode 3)

  • While I adore Johnny Jacobis as much as any other rational and sane person, he’s not the only RAC agent on the show. I can recall there being two others who do stuff too. Wouldn’t it be cool if the reviews covered them as well? This is the second in a row that barely touched on Dutch and D’avin. Admittedly, their plot in the previous episode was pretty lame and got about as much attention as it deserved, but they didn’t even get that much in this review. And no mention at all of Aneela and Delle Seyah.
