I loved loved loved this episode! My favorite episode of the season so far. Did you notice they were playing "The Wanderer" in the bar as well? I'm sure we'll soon find out what that business means. Also, I believe there were pictures of Bo's mother on the walls and then there was the small flashback to her as a baby that she remembers. I hope we learn of Bo's origins sooner than later. This was a very psychological episode which I love. The scene in the police station showed her dedication to humans despite being a Fae and I thought it was interesting how they twisted Lauren and Dyson's characters in the faux world. Of course, the best part of the episode for me is Bo and Dyson and their special moments together. They both got to demonstrate how much they truly love each other...enough to bring each other back at all costs. Both Anna Silk and Kris Holden-Ried were magnificent in this episode. I also loved Kenzi's response to the Lode Star when she said that Bo was going to surprise the s**t out of everybody like she always does. I love Kenzi!!!

PS:

Just read my opening post and it sounds rather rude towards the reviewer. I'm sorry did not intend for that. This episode had A LOT going for it but I was just a bit floored by the hmmm angle? The realities constructed by Bo and then influenced or messed with by Dyson (up for debate if he did it on purpose or not though it hints on being on purpose) gives a lot of insight into important aspects of the show and character so I guess I was expecting more about that. That does not excuse my rudeness so sorry for that :)

Last thing of the episode. I wish Bo would get a say in the whole "we will date in a 100 years after ur current love drops dead". It is an instant annoyance this kind of shit. Making these assumptions on Bo and what her decisions would be.

The episode was really a mixed bag, neither good nor bad, IMO. Dyson got some much needed attention for the writers, but IMO they did him no favors. He essentially inserts himself into Bo's Dawning and then tries to run the show all the way through. It was selfish--I get that he has noble, protective intentions, but IMO this tendency ends up being more of a hinderance than a help. I also felt the other message for Dyson was that Bo has moved on, which I think the character and the show sorely need to hear. The "wolves mate for life" thing drags the character down, and I hope this episode freed him of that. He deserves better development, outside of his pining for Bo and his desperate attempts to play the hero. He is a hero, just not in the way he thinks, or feels he has to be, because Bo can do those things for herself.

The best thing about the episode for me: Dyson's fantasy is to be Lauren. Can't say I blame him. :)

that helped Bo gain control to start with. Another view is that the injections were to be seen as something Bo is past now in her new stage. Now they prevent her to gain true control of her increased power / they keep from reaching her true potential.

So much more to say. The worlds Bo set up tell so much about the relationships and the fact that Dyson thought he had to be Lauren to be with Bo despite how dismissive he seems to be at times of that relationship is interesting. Got more to say but no more time.

There was a lot of symbolism that I wonder if it was just for giggles or if it was intended cause damnnn.

talks about giving love away and Bo with doctor!Dyson their talk is very much like their flirting. There were a lot of anvrils being thrown. I find that very telling in how both Bo and Dyson percieves both Bo/Lauren and Bo/Dyson.

You say he took his job as hand seriously but I think they made his character look bad. The constantly jumping in front of Bo actually ended up making things worse and derailed the Dawning. So not sure if the writers intended to highlight this flaw in their dynamic (Dyson's constant need to protect Bo even when she explicitly tells him to back off).

The injections I am not sure on. I seen many ideas being thrown around and I can give credit to several easily. Some think it was related to the growing under Fae in Bo and the injections were meant to show the attempt to curb it, while there is a side of Bo wanting give in. Others have as the reviewer talked about stopping Bo's Fae control but it makes little sense when it was those injections that helped Bo gain control to start with. Another view is that the injections were to be seen as something Bo is past now in her new stage. Now they prevent her to gain true control of her increased power / they keep from reaching her true potential.

My impression is the reviewer is a huge Dyson fan. I do feel A LOT of things got overlooked in this review. Now there was SO MUCH stuff in it, but there are some key things that I feel are important.

Bo's Dawning got messed with because of Dyson. There is a slew of theories going around about this and how she picked the wrong key. The symbol on Bo that was representing right path/truth was a symbol worn by Kenzi in the cop reality. Therefore many think Kenzi was the real proper key, and not Dyson.
Also while it was Bo's realities Dyson inserted himself into them and at least initially wanted to stay. The guardian dude entices Dyson about with the idea of making his own world queue Dyson suddenly as Doctor with happy family in the making life reality. Obviously the doctor Dyson was suppose to be Lauren as per Bo's reality but Dyson inserted himself so he could be with Bo. This caused Lauren to be Dyson. The dialog is a dead give away in this perspective as Bo with cop!Lauren talks about giving love away and Bo with doctor!Dyson their talk is very much like their flirting. There were a lot of anvrils being thrown. I find that very telling in how both Bo and Dyson percieves both Bo/Lauren and Bo/Dyson.

Good episode. The dawning was nothing I expected I thought it would be a series of challenges not some alternate reality. In glad Dyson finally told Bo he loved her it was about time. Kenzie talking to trick about how the fake kenzi she might be Fae was so sweet. I'm very interested in whether Kenzie is Fae or not I mean is it possible she could be part Fae and the being the reason no one knows and they all think she's human? Something I've just been thinking about is that we don't know a lot about Kenzie's family and I think they should explore that more. Tamsin in the alternative reality freaked me out she was real creepy. The wanderer story is interesting and I'm wondering if that's Bo's dad. Can't wait till the next episode it looks good

I felt a bit let down by the Dawning too. I thought it was going to be a bunch of trials...but it was just her chasing after this thing. It was very short.
I'm not sure Bo was saying goodbye to Lauren now...but I think she realizes that she will have to say it eventually. The reviewer is definitely a Lauren fan....and seems to know what future episodes will bring. You don't know that Lauren and Bo won't break up. We'll just have to wait and see. I think tonight clearly showed that Dyson is definitely still 'in it'...much more than we thought. Lauren is ok...she just bugs me. Most of the time she has the same mopey face. And she is always trying to 'fix' Bo. I think she wants to keep her as human as possible because she knows she might lose her if not.

This reviewer is clearly a doccubus shipper because I do not know how many times she could have mentioned "friend" when referring to Dyson. LOL. Who are you trying to convince? Us or yourself? This episode showed Bo still loves Dyson and is angry at him from keeping the news from her. If you did not get that from watching this episode then nobody can help you.

Am I watching a different show? I thought it was pretty clear that Bo was saying goodbye to Lauren. I thought that the Alternate Universe was a representation of Bo's sub-conscious/ her true desires. When she's talking to AU Lauren she tells her that she really did think she loved her, but she just doesn't. Oh well. I am all about a tamsin, dyson, bo love triangle. Tamsin is more interesting and she is the first dark fae I can get behind.
