Three Killjoys and a Lady
Dutch has been ministering to Zeph, who had been shot in the gut and in need of some immediate medical attention, which is hard to come by in Westerley. So Dutch goes to Turin (who is now working the back alleys of Westerley peddling illicit substances) and procures some antibiotics and other goodies. When he demands payment, Dutch takes off. She reappears shortly thereafter back to Zeph's lair, and proceeds to perform surgery on a laid out Zeph. Is Dutch qualified or prepared to perform surgery on Zeph? Not a chance. Will she? (That's a yes.)
Pree, as a RAC agent, issues a black warrant for the arrest of Dutch, and puts a bounty on her head. He makes the announcement at the bar, where Dutch used to work, in front of all the guests. It's a race to the bottom, folks. Pree tells Johnny that in addition to her current crime, Dutch is also under arrest for killing her last husband. This is news to Johnny. So the jilted husband goes to D'av and strikes a deal: together they'll work to find Dutch, and bring her back alive, before Pree and the other bounty hunters get her... dead.
Johnny and D'av drop by Turin and ask if he's seen Dutch. He has, but he wants to punch Johnny as revenge for his wife's stealing from him before he talks. Wish granted. After, Turin tells the guys that she must be off with Zeph (aka Stinky Raincoat!), and also where they might find them.
In her lair, Zeph regains consciousnesses, and immediately gets put back to work by Dutch. If her calculations are right, the Lady's eco-terrorism/terraforming will kill everyone in 27 days. If they can destroy some of the pollution factory centers, they might be able to buy some time.
Johnny ditches D'av after he starts trash talking about Dutch, and he follows a trail of drainage right to Zeph's hiding spot. Zeph hides under her desk as soon as Johnny gets there. He's beside himself at what he sees, and what he thinks his wife is getting into. He finds a tablet, and steals it.
D'av catches up with Dutch, and is ready to apprehend her when she turns the tables on him. She kisses him, disarming him, while she waits for his memory to start to come back and his contamination bracelet to fire off. Then she runs off.
Johnny and D'av reunite, and realize that Dutch isn't who they thought she was, but that maybe neither are they. Before Dutch left D'av, she slipped him a tablet with some information about The Lady's gas factories. The two guys put their heads together to figure out the connection.
Zeph and Dutch are trying out Zeph's invention, a protein blocker that could help people resist the memory gas flooding the atmosphere. She tries it on herself. Zeph lets the memories rush back in, and she's herself again. Dutch finds Johnny and D'av in one of the factories and does the same thing to them. It's the Killjoys, people!
Later, Dutch separates from the guys, and gets to destroying The Lady's species, contained in boxes in the factories. Looks like in terraforming Westerley, The Lady was preparing the moon for colonization. But killing all those little creatures has angered her, and also shut down some of the power on Westerley.
This makes it tricky for our heroes to escape from the factory (with an unconscious Pree, whom the boys knocked out when they caught him following them), and they're encircled by guards. Zeph gets caught in the chemical rain while trying to fix her mainframe. And when she regains composure... she's forgotten everything. She had time to carve some symbols on her arm before the rain took effect so she could remember.
