Dutch and Zeph take a sisterly road trip to a throwback cult on Leith in search of a key to The Lady's destruction.

Johnny’s dancing, I Love Lucy, wake-up routine was laugh-out-loud funny. D’avin was right when he warned the Warden that Lucy will always be the “other woman” in Johnny’s life.

D’avin’s lame “wingman” efforts to set Johnny up with the warden (who doesn’t seem to have a name) and Calvert were also funny. I’m still betting on the Warden.

Calvert’s psychotic side would make for a challenging relationship, whereas the warden is a model of stability. Plus, hey, the warden bears a strong physical resemblance to Dutch. Just sayin’.

The who’s-in-charge antics on the prison ship took a well-deserved back seat to the Leith expedition. Zeph is the most interesting supporting character in the cast. Her oppression by and escape from her strange family situation explains some if not all of her own strangeness. She has such a deadpan delivery of her funniest lines, as when she cites her reason for leaving the white-clad cult.

“Why do you think I ran away? Every day is laundry day.”

It seems as if Killjoy Fancy has been given more scenes and lines this season than all the previous seasons combined. Is he being developed as a new love interest for Zeph?

Khlyen’s relationship with the Lady remains a mystery. She murdered a human girl to inhabit her “shell,” yet she has an intense desire to experience human emotions. She seems to want fatherly love from Khlyen, seeing an opportunity to fill the void created by his belief that both of his “daughters” are dead. Are they trying to put a human face on Mrs. Cthulhu?
