It’s hard to believe it has been a week since Killjoys season two epic finale!

Luke was very proud of the series and most especially the season finale. “It’s our biggest episode by far. It has the biggest set pieces and the most exciting action and the biggest reveal,” says Luke.

Luke describes the series as “a family drama disguised as sci-fi.” The bounty hunting triad is comprised of Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and brothers John Jaqobis (Aaron Ashmore) and D’avin. The team each shares their own dark past and together have created family. And, just like any family they have their ups and downs. “[Dutch] surrounds herself with these two guys who are able to go through the spectrum. We see Johnny go from caretaker, to lover, to reckless abandon guy. We see D’avin do the opposite as well.  [Dutch] needs them to be those sort of polarities in her life. I think as much as we have changed is all necessary for Dutch to navigate the world with these two guys.”

In episode 2.08, Luke’s character, D’avin, made the top spot on our list of wonderfully weird moments when he accidentally exploded the eyeballs of his enemy. “They couldn’t get the blast right. First one was way too much. They did it so many times. It was green, vanilla pudding,” Luke jokingly recalling his memories of that experience.

When he did, it was like, ‘Holy smokes! Amazing!’” Luke recalls.
