Lost Girl Review: Faepocalypse

by at . Comments

After the failed attempt to bring down the Garuda, the team mourned the loss of Ciara and positioned themselves to win the next battle on Lost Girl's "Into the Dark."

The much awaited "talk" between Bo and Trick finally happened. Yes, Bo and Trick are related, but he is not her father. Instead he is her grandfather, Aife's father. In so many ways that makes sense; it explains Trick's protectiveness of Bo and his disappointment in Aife.

Bo Prepares For Battle

Throughout the episode, I kept waiting for Bo to use her blood to control a situation. Even though she now knows of her blood's potency, she never even considered using it. That's a positive sign that she won't follow her mother's path. Will she use it to defeat the Garuda? I wouldn't be surprised.

With Bo's background and power in place, there were two other necessary components she needed in order to complete her team for the next battle against the Garuda. The Nain Rouge was convinced to help Bo and revealed that the Wolf Spirit was correct -- Dyson will play a "significant" role. She also said that Bo must work with the Dark Fae to overcome the Garuda.

Kenzi realized that the only way Dyson would be useful in the fight was for him to get his love back. After their first failed attempt to trade for his love, Kenzi went in full-force Kenzi-mode arriving at the Norn's with a chain saw and starting cutting into the Norn's tree. Kenzi has a passion and dedication to her friends that is unrivaled. She got Dyson his love back, but at what cost? What was that black goop that got on Kenzi when the bottle fell? Given the Norn's satisfied reaction, Kenzi looks to once again be Fae-infected. I fear that this time it will be of the more permanent kind.

Dyson got his love back, but he didn't tell Bo. Is it possible he got his ability to love back, but not his actual love for Bo? That was unclear, but he did give Bo a loving look at the Dal. The priority right now is fighting the Garuda, so we will have to wait for now. Will we find out in the finale? I hope so, it would be awful to have to wait until January.

While Kenzi dealt with getting Dyson prepared for the fight, Bo spent her time getting the right Dark Fae on their team -- Vex. I love Vex. He's the perfect Dark Fae to help in their battle, though Ryan would have been a decent choice too. But, Vex's powers will be of greater assistance.

How awesome was Bo's manipulation of The Morrigan? Hot! Anna Silk was born to play a succubus; she could be sensual with a wall. The downside is that The Morrigan will now be after Bo, though how much of a threat could she be compared to the Garuda?

With her new team together at the Dal, Bo claimed her role as the champion. Everyone agreed to help, including Vex. The Garuda versuses Bo and team showdown is looking to be an epic battle. One that the Fae are sure to win, but at what cost?

In addition to gaining a grandfather, Bo also moved closer to a relationship with Lauren. They shared a heartwarming moment when Bo admitted to Lauren her true feelings. For the first time since they met, both Bo and Lauren are in a position to truly be together. Bo isn't involved with anyone, while Lauren is free of her commitment to Nadia and at least for now to The Ash. Kenzi is even supportive of their relationship.

The complication -- Dyson. What will Bo do if Dyson is in love with her again? Will her feelings for him resurface? Or, have they been completely wiped out? A love triangle in the making? Personally, I'm not sure who I want Bo to be with at this point. She cares about and loves them both. As a succubus, will she just end up hurting either or both of them

Lastly, what the heck was that black smoke thingy behind Trick? Did the Lost Smoke Monster arrive on Lost Girl?

Next Friday is the Lost Girl Season 2 finale. How would you like the season to end? Who do you think Bo should partner with? Lauren? Dyson? Neither? Or, should she remain an uncommitted succubus? (Please no spoilers if you have already seen the finale)

I love the the Dyson-Kenzi dynamics and I hope we see even more of it in the 3rd season. Kenzi using a chain-saw to get Dyson's love back was one of the highlights of the episode, but I shudder to think of the consequences of being accidentally black-gooped. The Norn looked way too pleased when it happened! And Vex will be a fun character to have on their side, even if he isn't really on their side!

I hope they won't "Fred" Kenzi. Those who watched Angel know what I'm talking about. What I want to know is whether or not the writers will tie up the loose ends by the finale or even next season. Will Lauren find out it was Bo who saved Nadia? What favor will Kenzi have to pay to The Morrigan? What was in the note Lachlan passed on to that woman before he sacrificed himself? And lastly what was The Norn's gift to Kenzi? With Ciara and Nadia gone, the triangle will be brought back next season for sure. However, it is obvious where they are going next. With Lachlan dead, Lauren will have the chance to run but she will willingly stay for Bo. Hale will be the new Ash. Bo and Lauren will be together and Dyson will be Bo's +1 in S3. Fans wants to see Bo and Lauren together and miss Bo and Dyson's sexual chemistry. That way, they get both.

Wow, good review, although I was looking for spoilers when i found it. I'd say pretty obvious they are going for a love triangle for next season. I think Bo will ultimately end up with Dyson. Although I wouldn't be surprized if this show goes all Dawson's Creek in the love department and everyone ends up in a relationship with everyone else before it's all over. I WANT to know what happened to Kenzi. They called her human WAY too many times in this episode for her to stay that way. I'm just hoping that it turns out to be something she can use for good. I'm still trying to figure out what an appropriate fay power for her would be. And lastly what is up with all the gay vs straight crap. Be what you are, watch the show and don't bring your personal drama to the "forum"

I don’t care which characters you root for. I just would like fair representation in reviews for the singular gay character on the show. Sorry if that’s too much pot stirring for you.

But this show. It’s different. It’s challenging. It’s fun. It opened doors that no other tv show has done, provided a look a sexuality that is refreshing and lovely. When the show came to the US, I was dismayed by the lack of support or the marginalization of the Lauren character. Instead of just one off reviews, it became patterns of dismissal and/or contempt with many reviewers (there are about 5 main ones for this show that post as news on “google�.) I’ve never labeled this as homophobia. Perhaps heterosexist… but there is a difference. When reviewers put down one couple over another. When reviewers ignore pieces of an intricate dance of relationships, it sends a message. And I think reviewers, that aren’t just personal bloggists, have a responsibility to all of the viewership. You can have your animus, your thoughts, your personal ideas about where things should go. This isn’t an agenda. I don’t care which characters you root for. I just would like fair representation in reviews for the singular gay character on the show. You might call that pot-stirring. I call it standing up.

Shely—I’m not here to be a jerk. I’m here because this is important. I’m here to say things just like you. My respect level comes from smart writing, consideration, and a willingness to listen. Especially to things I might disagree with. Let’s talk about this for a sec. Here’s the thing about TV. It’s entertainment--yes. Some of it is for learning, some for escaping, some for laughing, and some of it does some of the above while being challenging to current social issues. You say that those of us that care about balanced reviews have lost touch with the purpose of the show. That is isn’t about gender to begin with. I think, if anyone is more aware of that fact, it’s the GLBT community. I think we care BECAUSE of its message. If it was just another Glee one off, or a sanitized Grey’s Anatomy (where a man is always in the middle of the f/f relationship)…. I wouldn’t care.

I didn't exactly pick up a sexual vibe between Kenzi and Dyson but I admit there is definitely chemistry there. I don't see it as incest (can't see anything that resembles a sibling relationship, sorry) so it didn't really bother me. I thought it was poignant Kenzi was the one to snap him out of it and ultimately "save" him. Vex and The Morrigan should be seen more often. Absolutely loved that Vex will be integrated to the gang and Bo seducing Evony was the icing on the cake. Bo and Lauren's chemistry continues to be unmatched. Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer have this glow about them and it shows whenever they have a scene together. Fucking finally Bo admits how she feels -- it's too bad Lauren would rather, you know, work. $10 bucks there is a kiss in the finale. They always deliver the good after the tease.

Best. episode. ever. Every single thing they pulled out of their asses after the mid-season finale (2.13) turned out to be a waste of my time. It bodes well that this particular episode was written by the new show-runner. As much as I loved Kenzi with the chainsaw, that entire set up was actually my least favorite aspect of the episode. Seriously, his love was a "pink" element in a bottle? And he had to drink it back? Really? Wow. It was just pathetic as Dyson as a character. I thought Bo and Trick's scene was touching, but a bit anti-climatic. Nothing is unpredictable on this show. I've called it a few episodes into season 1. Boring.

character of Lauren. There are people who don't like either of them. There are people who could care less who Bo rides off into the sunset with, because who knows when or even if that will be. Think of how many shows never get the will they or won't they star-crossed lovers together. Most people don't watch the entire show through agenda-colored glasses. They just watch the show. I'm over the fan wars, the anger, the trying to force supposed agendas on people, the being dismissive of other viewers' opinions, the assumption that one side or the other has sole rights to interpretation and understanding nuance. Have more respect for people.

I get that there are social equality issues that are being fought for right now. And I'm sorry that we don't live in a happy accepting world. However, this is entertainment. You can't bring culture wars into a fantasy TV show that never started with that intent. Fantasy is about escapism. People don't enjoy preachy television. More than that though, you lose the most progressive part of LG: Bo's sexuality is a "no big deal" nonissue. If the fandom makes it into a culture war, that is lost. "You have to like Bo/Lauren or you are homophobic" is not an LG stance. It is an LG fan stance. "Bo/Lauren have to be endgame or they've betrayed their progressive socially conscious potential" doesn't make for good drama. Attacking reviewers for not supporting your agenda in a show or for supposedly trying to influence fans based on unacknowledged biases isn't the way. I swear to you: not everything in the show is divided based on whether you prefer the character of Dyson or you prefer the character of Lauren. There are people who don't like either of them. There are people who could care less who Bo rides off into the sunset with, because who knows when or even if that will be. Think of how many shows never get the will they or won't they star-crossed lovers together. Most people don't watch the entire show through agenda-colored glasses. They just watch the show.
