This episode takes another step forward in figuring out how to take down the Lady. While they do have their successes, there are a lot of disruptions throughout. It was well paced and the overall structure of the episode was well done and easy to follow but it does have me wondering what the next two episodes are going to be like. So far, I’ve appreciated the pace that’s been set for season 5 but everything is coming to a close and I’m anxious to see how it’ll all fit in. At this point, there’s a lot of different pieces and they haven’t all come together yet.

I finished this episode a few moments ago and I’m still reeling from it. It managed to put me on the edge of my seat, make me laugh out loud, and cry. There are so many great qualities to Killjoys and this episode managed to highlight them all. In fact, this entire season has been fantastic at doing that and it’s been such a relief. This is honestly such an amazing show and it’s wonderful to see that things haven’t changed in its final season. There’s only three episodes left so I’ve got everything crossed it’ll continue and we’ll get a deserving ending.

In August, Brockhampton’s new album Ginger finally dropped. It’s their fifth album and has twelve tracks with music videos for four of those coming out on the lead up to the album’s release. Not only hearing but being able to see I Been Born Again, If You Pray Right, Boy Bye, and No Halo was really the perfect build up. Each of those songs are fantastic and not only was it a glimpse into how Ginger sounds but also the aesthetic and vibe that would be expected of their music videos which are often just as iconic as the songs themselves.

The closer we get to the end of this final season the more emotional I get. We’re more than halfway through at this point so I’m pretty confident that every review is probably going to involve me gushing over how good Killjoys is because every episode so far in season five has been satisfying to some degree. This one was no different.
Last week, the prison ship was taken over by some of the inmates, Aneela finally returned to us, and Gared was approached by Khlyen and we pick up all of those things in this episode.

We are officially at the halfway mark of this season and I’ll admit, I am holding my breath a little bit. So far, this final season has been really wonderful. It’s managed to give me a lot of great things but it is also still stressing me out. There’s so much that needs to be dealt with before the end of the season and I know that will be in some way, shape, or form but waiting for it is the hard part.
Take Johnny and Dutch, for example. Their friendship is so important and beautifully shown throughout the entirety of Killjoys. I even said in my review for last week’s episode that I understood what was going on between them and why Johnny was reacting the way that he is and I still do. I trust that the writers know how important their friendship is and it shouldn’t be ruined by any type of romantic feelings. However, while these are things I do understand, it’s stressful waiting for them to finally be their old selves around one another.

“Not bad, eh? I work in the sewer – but I live near the stars!“
So, a little while back I toyed with the idea of watching every movie nominated for Best Picture which turned into me wanting to watch every movie nominated for any kind of Academy Award award. I really don’t plan to do anything other than keep track of what nominees I’ve seen via a letterboxd list I made and to potentially write a few reviews here and there like this one. It’s because of this random idea I had that I came across Seventh Heaven and I’m so glad that I did.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Seventh Heaven is a silent film that follows a sewer worker, Chico (Charles Farrell) who saves young woman, Diane (Janet Gaynor), and the pair fall in love before war eventually intervenes. It sounds like such a simple premiss, right? It is but as I said before, I’m so incredibly happy that I came across this movie because it is genuinely so good.
