Fans can still catch Painkiller Jane one last time before the Sci Fi Channel pulls the plug on the show based on the Event Comics series created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada.  Culmination comes in the episode fittingly called “End Game,” which airs tonight at 10/9c.

Produced by Sci Fi, Insight Film Studios, Starz Media and Kickstar Comic Arts Studio, Painkiller Jane stars Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) as Jane Vasco.  As the main protagonist of the show, she is featured as a DEA agent who is recruited by a secret government agency that tracks down, contain and neutralize the threat of genetically enhanced individuals (Neuros).  However, she soon discovers that she too possesses an amazing ability to heal rapidly from any injury, and because of this, she is even more determined to learn everything there is to know about Neuros.

Operating from a secure abandoned subway platform are the core members of the covert agency, including Andre McBride (Rob Stewart), the seasoned team leader, Connor King (Noah Danby), a special agent, Riley Jensen (Sean Owen Roberts), an evolved computer expert in charge of surveillance and communications, Dr. Seth Carpenter (Stephen Lobo), the unit's doctor and scientist, Joe Waterman (Nathaniel Deveaux), the middle-aged caretaker of the subway, and Maureen Bowers (Alaina Huffman), Jane's former DEA partner and friend.

In the series finale, Jane is convinced that her handlers have been lying to her so she goes rogue and joins the Neuros.  Meanwhile, a major emergency at NICO results in the escape of the most dangerous Neuros under the guidance of a surprising ringleader.

Based on the episode preview, the series ender will explore and answer every question about Jane's origin, including the most astounding question of them all: Whose side is she really on?

Fans will just have to find out in the conclusion of Painkiller Jane tonight on Sci Fi.
