Bangarang is the first episode of Season 1 of Killjoys, as well as the first episode of the series.

The episode aired June 19, 2015 on Syfy and Space.

A trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial chase deadly warrants through out the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multiplanetary class war.


In the badlands of Westerley, in the Quad Planetary System, Dutch and John Jaqobis are Killjoys working a Level 3 Warrant for Coren Jeers, a crime boss. They are bounty hunters and are undercover as thieves who stole an H-class frigate that Jeers had bought for 60,000 Joy. Dutch and John are able to capture Jeers and take him to the Prisoner Intake Facility in Old Town.

While processing the warrant for Coren Jeers, Johnny sees an incoming warrant for a person named Kobee Andras that is clearly important to him, though he doesn't say anything to Dutch. He tells her he needs to spend some time on his own and leaves.

Later in The Royale, a bar in Old Town, Duth tells Pree, the owner, she's not sure what Johnny's up to, but she bets it's "something stupid." Later on Leith, Dutch checks in with her warrant broker Bellus Haardy and finds out the Johnny has signed on for a Level 5 Warrant in Dutch’s name. Johnny, who is a Level 3 Killjoy, is not authorized to take a warrant above his level and will be in serious trouble if caught, so Dutch goes after him.

Johnny has signed up as an indentured fighter on a slaver ship so he can cage-fight Kobee Andras. Andras is actually Johnny’s estranged brother, D'avin Jaqobis and Johnny intends to get him out from under the kill warrant and save his life. They meet in the fight ring on the ship and begin to work out the issues between them by punching each other. Dutch is also on the ship to help Johnny. She spots a fellow Killjoy, Fancy Lee, in the crowd. Seems this particular warrant was double-booked.

Dutch manages to dart D'avin with a sedative before Fancy can kill him with a projectile knife. She and John take D’avin back to their ship, Lucy. Dutch missed someone else in the crowd though, a man that seems to be following her.

Back on the ship, Dutch doesn't trust D'avinn and has a plan to keep John out of trouble and get the warrant on D’avin dropped. Bellus told Dutch that the Company took the warrant out on D'avin, so if they can find someone else the Company wants even more, they can make a trade.

Alvis Akari, the leader of a religious order called Scarbacks, meets with Dutch and Johnny in Old Town and tells them who the Company's looking for - Rolly Desh, a Scarback/resistance fighter who stole something from the Company and they want it back. Alvis also talks about the rumors of revolution around Westerley and the resistance movement against the Company.

The mission to find Rolly Desh takes them to Qresh, the richest planet in the Quad System, and a Land Blessing ceremony where they think they will find him. They spot Desh and start to go after him, just as Fancy Lee grazes Dutch with a poisoned blade. Dutch has John and D’avin go after Desh while she tries to stop the poison in her body. The man that was tracking her on the slaver ship shows up and gives her an antidote for the poison. He knows her and she is afraid of him. Dutch passes out and flashes back to when she was a girl and the man trained her as an assassin.

Johnny and D'avin track down Rolly Desh, and while Johnny tries to talk him down, D'avin doesn't have time for talk and shoots him in the head. The boys retrieve the company information stolen by Desh, but get cornered by guards in a hallway. Dutch shows up and takes out the guards in spectacular fashion.

The Company accepts a trade, cancelling the warrant on D’avin for the information that they retrieved from Rolly Desh. The RAC calls Dutch in, because she defied the RAC code: "The warrant is all." She would normally be punished severely but an authority high in the RAC cleared her of all charges.
