Let me also say this. The arguments that Dyson or Ryan or any fae (cough*man*cough) would sustain Bo completely were invalidated by season 1. As Dyson was her only sexual partner for 2-3 episodes --she was literally draining him dry. He couldn't not be his protector wolf self when she was boinking him exclusively.

The "fire and tension" is subjective. I see it, my straight friends see it, and are blown away by it. But "lack of fulfillment with Lauren?" Seriously? Talk about out of touch. Lets see how the rest of the season plays out, shall we?

Louise, I feel the opposite way. The only times I've found Dyson unlikable was when he was not being himself, which was mainly during season 2 when the Norn took away his ability to love. Generally he has great chemistry with almost everyone he interacts with. In the first season it was mostly Bo, but since then, he's had great chemistry with Kenzi, Tamsin, Hale and even Vex. But that probably has a lot to do with the actor.

Well, like usual, I disagree with pretty much everything you have to say about Bo and Lauren together as well as Bo's "adorable" attraction to Dyson, but that's nothing new. You're "They're boring but they have chemistry statements are very confusing." And they didn't have sexytimes in 2.20. Lauren simply took comfort in Bo by sleeping on her chest.

I think if anything, this episode solidified, why I dig the ladies together so damn much in or out of the bedroom. Their tenderness is a joy to watch, and Bo brings out Lauren's playfulness. What they have to go through to be together is much more powerful than what a fae/fae relationship brings to the show.

Bo and Lauren have only had ONE scene in their relationship and you already think it's boring? Um, ok. That's not biased at all. They haven't even scratched the surface of that relationship yet. Bo's nature is going to play a part soon and unless they completely assassinate Lauren's character, she will understand and respect that. It will have to be an "open" relationship which will add an interesting dynamic to the show. No one can sustain Bo alone. Throw Dark Bo into the mix and you certainly have me interested.

Why is it that Dyson is only ever likable when he's not being himself? All real Dyson does is brood and ruin every scene he's in. When he is someone else he actually steals every scene he's in. Go figure. I didn't like the body switching episode last year but this one was awesome. Unfortunately Tamsin lacks chemistry with everyone including Dyson. Skarsten hasn't evolved at all from her BOP days.

Kenzi is still the best thing about this show. It's too bad Vex left because I was really enjoying the two of them together. Too bad x2 Syfy cut the scene where he called her out on her Dyson bias.

The reviewer summed up the problem I've been having with Bo and Lauren, which is that outside the love scenes, they are extremely boring together. This was made all too clear with this episode when Bo interacted with Dyson and Tamsin, who she showed a lot more spark with. In real life, that wouldn't be a negative against her relationship with Lauren. However, as a viewer, they just make for boring entertainment.

I'm predicting that either Dyson or Tamsin will have a relationship with Bo, which should be fun, although I think that ultimately Dyson belongs with Kenzi! I'm also loving Vex this season.

I have mixed feelings about this show. It's fun to watch the relationships, but I don't find the underlying plot that interesting as far as Sci Fi shows go. I think that shows like Haven and Continuum have much better plots in that regard.

Sorry, but Bo and Lauren's chemistry can't be matched. A relationship needs a lot more than "fire" and "sex" to work. Bo and Lauren's relationship have depth, which Bo and Dyson's never, ever did. Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer bring it to a whole new level and it certainly helps that the show is doing it right and doing their relationship justice. That is more than you can say about... any television show... ever.

I thought this ep was good but ep 3.4 smashed it with a rock.

I really enjoyed this episode! It was quite funny. I actually liked Lauren in this, her interactions with Kenzi were amusing and I loved that they aired out their stuff. I thought you did a decent job reviewing and I fully understand your point. I hate that it always boils down to being accused of homophobia if you don't care for Lauren and Bo when that isn't the case. It is Lauren as a character, she comes across as stiff and stoic. On a show where other characters have a bit of bite and humor she always falls flat. It does affect her relationship with Bo. Sex aside they come across as completely incompatible. And no, I'm not being homophobic. I do like Bo with Dyson. Very much, but I seen more chemistry sbd fire between Bo and TAMSIN( who I really like. Nice addition) and would choose her and Bo over Bo and Lauren any day. I'm going to miss Vex! I really loved him and his chemistry with Kenzi.

I loved this episode. The Lauren/Kenzi pairing was my favorite. It was nice to see them finally clear the air. I would love to see them possibly become friends. Kenzi was awesome as the holder of the Staff of Righteousness. However, I would have loved to seen Lauren in that role as well. I'm anxious to hear more about Lauren's time in Afghanistan!
As for Lauren & Bo, their chemistry is undeniable. They have more chemistry in the tips of their fingers than Bo/Dyson & Bo/Ryan had combined.
I love Tamsin and the actress that plays her is very talented. I like the interactions between her & Dyson as well.

You didn't think much of the sex scene in 2.06 which is viewed by millions on Youtube and now the sex scenes are the only area you find they have chemistry. Looking at your review none of Lauren's scenes are featured and she was in it a lot. There's clear bias on two forums Afterellen and Heroes and Heartbreakers which are clearly partisan, I find your reviews the same ilk as the latter, you don't give a balanced review and because you write for the less populous camp, the only time you get a healthy response is when you sideswipe Lauren.
