Killjoys A Skinner Darkly Recap Season 3 Episode 2 – In “A Skinner Darkly,” Dutch and D’avin set about recruiting a new member of the team, since Johnny, with his technology skills, is absent pursuing the Hackmod angle of things. Three candidates from the tech section of the Killjoys organization are chosen and are taken on a mission to see if they have the qualities to make good field agents. Things go wrong, as they often do in such operations, but that aspect proves to be a good test to see how the candidates deal with life-or-death situations.
Killjoys A Skinner Darkly Recap Season 3 Episode 2
One of the recruits, a young woman named Zeph, is a little too good in picking up visual and other clues that lead her to conclude that they are really in a VR simulation. Knowing that their lives are not really on the line, Zeph makes all of the right decisions, but “fails” the test anyway. However, she impresses Dutch so much that she invites Zeph to join the team anyway, which she does with great enthusiasm.
Meanwhile, Johnny, with Olli’s help, continues to try to find out what happened to Clara. They discover an operation that literally steals the faces off of captives and grafts them onto other people. It seems that Clara was getting too close to the skinner operation and its leader, Niko, ordered her to be disappeared. However, Yoki, who is trying to earn enough money to take passage on a ship to a hackmod colony, interpreted the order in a creative way. She captured Clara, wiped her memory, and used the skinner technology to change her into Olli. Indeed, Johnny had found his friend all along but neither even knew it.
Niko decides that having the face graft of a Killjoy would be useful for her operation, so she abducts Johnny and preps him for the transplant, which will of course kill him. Interesting enough the procedure uses the same green goo that the Hullen employs. But Olli rescues him, using Alice the gun arm. However Olli is captured in turn by Niko, who is using her operation as a way to bring down the hackmod owners. But Johnny arrives with some hackmod friends of his and Olli’s and frees his friend.
Johnny, having found what he was looking for, decides to rejoin Dutch and D’avin, who welcome him with great enthusiasm. He now knows where the sources of the green goo are, which the Hullen plan to use to take over and alter the section of space known as the Quad.
Finally, Delle Seyah Kendry, whom Johnny thought he had killed in the second season, wakes up on a Hullen ship, having been resurrected by the green-goo-based technology. Aneela, the insane leader of the Hullen and Dutch’s twin, welcomes the former scion of one of the nine families as she is no doubt to be part of her plan to take over and change the Quad in her own image.
