A discussion with Tamsen McDonough (Lucy, Killjoys)

I recently was able to ask Tamsen McDonough, aka Lucy from the wildly popular SYFY show Killjoys, questions about working on the show and herself in general.  Here’s what she had to say.   How did you hear about Killjoys? I had just moved to Vancouver, BC (Canada) when my agent asked me to put…

Killjoys (S03E10) “Wargasm”

First off let’s rejoice that Killjoys doesn’t just get 1 but 2 more seasons and is allowed to give closure to fans in Season 5! Second, let’s review: The episode starts off with the Last Supper motif. The whole season the show has played with the good old battle between man and the Devil so it’s only…

Killjoys (S03E09) “Reckoning Ball”

Before the big battle everyone is going through a reckoning (no one can have a normal conversation without something pointy around here). Alvis lends Dutch a knife so she can do some reckoning.

Killjoys (S03E06) “Necropolis Now”

Working out your problems with alcohol would be so much easier if your metabolism wasn’t so high, which is the problem Dutch was having as she tried to drown her sorrows in drink as they headed to a funeral for their fallen comrades. Dutch is feeling guilty for killing Banyan and D’avin offers his shoulder…

Killjoys (S03E05) “Attack the RAC”

Dutch and D’avin kidnap upper management of the RAC and prepare for a coup to route out any Hullen hidden in their midst.

While Zeph tries to figure out how to open Khlyen’s weird box, D’avin and Dutch go to the Royale with Johnny to celebrate his promotion to Level 5. He’s one of the big boys now. But Turin tells Johnny that Dutch had repeatedly blocked his way to becoming a 5 sooner. Suddenly a Killjoy comes…

Killjoys (S03E03) “The Hullen Have Eyes”

Johnny is back but doesn’t get a warm welcome from the new boss of the RAC.

Nevertheless Johnny gets reinstated but he’s not happy to find a…

Killjoys (S03E02) “A Skinner, Darkly”

Killjoys (S02E10) “How to Kill Friends and Influence People”
