What I take from this episode.

Dutch: Considering that several other critics (not that I am one) have written how amazing, super, fantabulous, amazeballs and awesome Dutch is, I suggest that you, if you want to read all the praises on Dutch's super-womanhood, you search for those nice interviews.

I already said that since Elizabeth Jennings I'm kinda fed up with 'super-women', even though I do like Dutch. Because, contrary to Elizabeth, Dutch has emotions, she's curious enough to ask 'why' and she has a sense of humour. And she has a gruesome past that shows that, unlike EJ, you don't have to turn into a psycho because of it. Other than that, I'll leave her to the fanboys to drool over.

John: I truly like him. He's a good brother, a good partner and someone who takes real good care of his ship too. And he's smart and doesn't see the necessity of using force when you can you use your brain, even though he's not afraid to fight, if he has to. (Maybe this sounds silly but he reminds me of Justin Walker somehow)

D'Avin: What can I say? Perhaps, because of I'm a fan of Luke, I'm taking D'Avin's side too much, but Dutch's constant bickering on him got a bit on my nerves. I liked how he fought back though, even pinching her weapons. (Liked Dutch's 'Cheeky!' protest when he did.)

Just because he's a soldier, doesn't mean he's an idiot. He did have a few points to make. And I'm glad that he had the opportunity to show how good a soldier he actually is. And that he's brave enough to get himself shot first to give Dutch and the girl a chance to escape on that roof-top. And I'm glad she did listen to him eventually, rather than follow the usual 'ignore and find out the hard way' routine.

Besides, I was a bit suprised that, when following Simon, D'Avin was constantly on his guard, checking left, right, up and down, knowing that they are in enemy territory and in a battlezone. And yet, Dutch, half the time, didn't even look where she was walking. Anyone could have simply shot her, she seemed oblivious to the world around her... unless she would have known about the sniper because of her spidey-senses. I don't know. I just just felt rather foolish to me. It was only because she wasn't paying attention that D'Avin could so easily take away something that belonged to her.

What I also liked was that D'Avin trusted his brother to be on time. Trust issues seem to be going on between all three. I read that some thought that the 'not-so-happy' look on John's face, when Dutch suggests that D'Avin becomes a Killjoy, is because he's not happy with his brother joining, but I think it's more that he doesn't trust Dutch about the missing 10 minutes and that he thinks she's up to something. He knows that she was lying.

Funniest moment: Pree offering D'Avin work as a sexer (prostitute) and D'Avin's face.. Priceless! :)

Will post some screen-caps tomorrow, as it's past 1 in the morning here in Holland. :)

I like John a lot too, and Lucy :) And now that you said it, it's true that he reminds me somehow to Justin too. About the "not-so-happy" look, I think his first reaction is of surprise and he doesn't like it, but at the end it seems as if he smiles, so the first reaction is not good but he's happy that D'Avin joins the group. Maybe is what you say about being worried for Dutch. Or some jealously because Dutch and D'Avin seem to start to get along better.

Yes, the moment of Pree offering D'Avin to work as a sexer is priceless :)

I want to know more about why D'Avin is looking for a doctor and his past. I like a lot the three characters and their chemistry, but D'Avin is too much in the fighting and shooting scenes that I find very boring and crappy in all the tv shows. I hope in the next episodes they focus more on the relationship with the characters and the politics and social aspects of their world and less in the explosion and fighthing scenes.The corporation seems to be pure evil, I hope they will end joining the rebels and working against the corporation. The sneak peek of the next episode it's very promising, it seems they will show more about the social structure of the Quad.

I saw the screencaps. Thank you for positing them. They're great!

Glad you like the screen-caps. I think some attention should be given to LM every now and then. :)

Yes, I'd like to know more about the politics (still a bit misty for me), but also the characters. Someone on Facebook, who has seen the first 4 episodes said that more will be known about D'Avin by the 4th episode.

I was a bit upsetangry that most attention went to the other 2 characters and I started wondering if Luke had big part in this show or not and then he answered that he had. :)

And I'm glad that he has. Voting for more shirtless scenes though. ;)

I can see the comparison of Johnny and Justin, especially after 8 episodes.

I like the main trio well enough, but I love the supporting characters of Pree, Fancy Lee, Alvis, and Pawter.

*** I can see the comparison of Johnny and Justin, especially after 8 episodes. ***
Though in the last episode he suddenly turned into Tommy Walker, when he turned away from D'Avin. It was interesting though. :)

I feel the same. I like a lot of the supporting cast as well. Pree and Alvis are interesting. Pree from the start, Alvis since the last episode for sure (I had my doubts before.I'm curious to learn more about Fancy Lee. I was quietly rooting for Pawter/D'Avin. (Sad sigh)

I'm however less interested in the whole Khylen/Dutch thing. The actor who plays Khylen does a good job, but I don't really care about the character. Perhaps it's because I have little interest in Dutch's background story.

I was thinking S1's "Family Day" and everything finally getting to the point where Johnny just has to state his boundries with everyone's b.s.

I can see that too after thinking it over... , but the memory of Tommy telling Justin that he would no longer be there for Justin was the first thing that came to mind. I'm glad that things aren't settled yet, but getting there. I felt sorry for D'Avin at the start of the latest episode. :)
