sjohnson August 17, 2015 Share August 17, 2015 Not caring for people you hook up with is rather like not caring for people you don't hook up with: Both may be fairly common attitudes but they seem to be strange things that people have gotten used to, rather than being understandable. Dutch would be kind of messed up if she can't feel affection for a bedmate, or if she thought feeling affection for someone who reciprocated that with loyalty was somehow disqualified as a romantic partner. Dutch of course could be a loyal partner to Johnny without desiring him sexually and want D'Avin sexually, then feel a bond from making love. Resenting or despising sexual partners seems to be all about puritanical shame, guilt and self-hatred. Dutch/D'Avin romance is perfectly compatible with the Dutch/Johnny partnership, just as Johnny's partnership with Dutch doesn't exclude a relationship with someone else...so I conclude that Johnny loves Dutch, who doesn't love him back that way. Standard disclaimers, but even though all three leads are so cool that they don't have any normal mortal weaknesses, the show doesn't think anybody is as awesome as Dutch. The show isn't much about Killjoys, which isn't much of a premise without more human characters. The show appears to be making itself on what's coming to the Quad. And in that story, Johnny and D'Avin are assistants while Dutch is the predestined hero, the literally chosen one. Link to comment
