Lost Girl S04E05 – Let The Dark Times Roll

o-LOST-GIRL-SEASON-4-facebook

This week’s episode of Lost Girl picks up exactly where last week’s ended with Bo’s (Anna Silk) confrontation with the Una Mens, led by The Keeper (Christine Horne) and the revelation that she is no longer unaligned, but has in fact chosen to be Dark Fae!!

Bo’s reaction is wonderfully Bo.

She’s warned that she must pay fealty to the leader of the dark Fae, hello Morrigan (Emmanuelle Vaugier), before she can do anything else. Chatting with the Morrigan, which sees Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) flirting with her dark side, though bristling under the remarks about her being a pet, Bo learns that she has little time to back out of being Dark Fae, the next full moon, conveniently that night.

Bo has to track down Vex (Paul Amos), whom she believes is the one who has somehow fixed her alignment.

When told she must attend the Dark Fae gathering to learn where Vex is, she and Kenzi, with Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) in tow, end up there. Which ends hilariously as Tamsin finds herself in a dance-off… to the death.

We also finally get to see Bo and Lauren (Zoie Palmer) reunited, and a dumbstruck waiter stumbles upon the amorous couple… Ha!

When Bo tracks down Vex, we learn he is about to pull an Ash, and ends up like Luke in Empire… It seems the Una Mens has put a malignant mold on his hand that is very aggressive, and of course, if he loses both his hands… he’s a mesmer with no ability to feed, so he takes it to extremes… but Bo does save the hand… so who knows, they may be able to save it!

Trick (Rick Howland) returns, and is stunned to learn that his granddaughter is now pledged to the Dark Fae, while the Una Mens have offered him the opportunity to be the Acting Ash, though I suspect there are other political and controlling motivations behind their decision. There is trouble coming for Trick and Bo in a big way this season I suspect.

Bo is told to find out what really happened, she has to find her dark fae sponsor, someone named Rayner… hmmm, connection to the Wanderer comes to mind, but how did everything get signed?

I do like the fact that there is a bit of a mystery around not only her disappearance but her unexpected alignment. As we get further into the season, I expect we’ll see our favorite characters pushed into darker spaces, and making tougher choices, but that’s something you want to see, you want to see how your heroes behave under duress and wonder how you in turn would react.

We know the Wanderer is bound to show at some point, and we know the Una Mens are up to no good, especially now that we learned how they actually were created, and are unable to feel emotion, and are only worried about following the word of the law, and Trick will be in trouble if they cotton to who he actually is.

This season is looking to turn into a sprawling, treacherous adventure, and I am hoping it gets darker before it gets lighter.

What are your thoughts on the season so far?

Lost Girl S04E02 – Sleeping Beauty School

o-LOST-GIRL-SEASON-4-facebook

After the delightful WTF romp that was last week’s season opener, the Fae world is still missing the unaligned succubus of Bo (Anna Silk), but her friends now aware that she’s missing are pulling out all the stops to find her.

The second episode of the season gives us great character beats right from the get-go, as well as setting up future betrayals, revelations and the beginning of a fantastic series of guest stars that are populating this ever-expanding fantastic world.

First up, it was delightful to see Mind Reel’s friend Christine Horne as one of the menacing, Una Mens, as they conduct their rather extensive ‘interviews’ as they learn what has been going on. Also on deck is Mia Kirshner, after a brief appearance last week, as we begin to learn more about who she is, her powers, and also that we have no idea where her allegiances lay.

Alongside Christine, I was delighted to see that the awesome Ali Liebert makes her first appearance of the season, as Lauren’s (Zoie Palmer) boss, at the greasy spoon the human doctor is working and hiding out in.

wanderer

It seems Dyson’s (Kris Holden-Ried) compulsive need to revisit the site of the crash he and Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) went through at the end of the season pays off, as Tamsin returns… kind of. This storyline had some of my favorite moments in the episode, and I am not going to ruin it, but it’s definitely a hoot. Poor Kenzi (Ksenia Solo). ‘Nuff said.

There are also a few laugh out loud moments, as Dyson and Hale (K.C. Collins) end up at the Beauty School hinted at in the title as they seek a tracker to help them find Bo… There’s also a moment that some fans have been waiting from Season 1 for, which will surely be revisited later in the season, and no doubt delight a lot of the fan community.

It’s also interesting to see, more or less, where Bo is, and the reveal is a little troubling, especially if Dyson is now in the same place by episode’s end.

It seems there is a nice sense of play so far this season, which I hope lasts through it’s run, but underneath it, of course, there is the worry and development of our characters. Each one of them is not only different from when we left them at the end of Season 3, but they will no doubt be different to Bo when she finds her way back to them.

zoie

And I get Kenzi needs/wants her fake Fae powers to maintain her cover, but when I saw how low she’s willing to go towards the end of this episode, I was so disappointed in her. But I like that. It makes her a flawed character, reinforcing, once again, that none of these people are perfect, they make mistakes, they can be selfish, they can be stupid and foolish.

And Trick (Rick Howland) is going to be furious when he learns about it.

With sharp writing, the return of our characters, scattered as they may be, emotionally or physically, season 4 is already firing on all thrusters are far as I’m concerned, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Brug’s Army: Mingle For A Mission

mingle$21,000!!

That’s how much Amanda Brugel’s Brug’s Army raised for their first ever charity event. The monies will go to the Blooview Children’s Hospital, which is just brilliant.

But just as important for the fans who gave their money, they had a wonderful evening chatting and laughing with some of Canada’s best and brightest.

Sue, our op and good friend Bonnie, and myself all arrived just shortly before the doors opened for the upstairs area that had been reserved, and we fell into the queue which leapt up the stairs to meet all of the amazing folks who Amanda had arranged to join the fans and folks that night.

And what a list of people!

We grabbed a table over by the open windows, and caught up with our friend Rick Howland (Lost Girl) and his wonderful wife Nadia, whom we hadn’t seen in ages. We just sat and chatted, watching the buzz of activity fill the room as people, who had come from all over for this event, got to meet some of their favorite television stars.

We delightedly got to catch up with our friends Adam Korson and Carrie-Lynn Neales from Seed. We hadn’t seen Adam since his appearance on our show, but there really doesn’t seem to be a nicer or funnier guy around and he hugged all of us on sight, and asked when he could come back on our show, so stay tuned for that, cause we’re going to make that happen!

seedCarrie is always wonderful and adorable, and like all the ladies that night was looking spectacular, laughing and chatting easily with one and all.

Also on hand were our friends Lara-Jean Chorostecki (Hannibal) and Trenna Keating (Defiance), who came over to our table to give us a big hello, a round of hugs, and a catch-up of all the stuff we’d all been up to since we last saw one another. They’re both brilliantly funny and engaging and seemed to be having a great time with everyone.

It was actually a lot of fun to see some of the celebs meeting one another for the first time, and consequently tweeting pics about it.

And I need to apologize right now, as neither Sue nor I took pictures, we were just happy to catch up with our friends and spend an evening in their company.

I wandered about and bumped into the group from Degrassi, including Cory Lee, Raymond Ablack and our dear friend, and one of the stars of The Lesser Blessed, Chloe Rose.

chloeChloe and I had a nice little chat about television, and a list of movies she HAS to see (anytime you want to join Sue and I for any of them, you just let us know Chloe!).

As I wandered back to our table, I saw that we’d been joined by Paul Amos (Lost Girl, Captain Canuck) and caught up with him for a bit.

Through it all a whirlwind of activity surrounded Amanda and Zoie Palmer (Lost Girl), so much so that we didn’t get a chance to even say hi to Amanda until later in the evening though she more than made up for it by wrapping us up in a big hug and thanking Sue and I profusely. We love that woman!

We also got a brief moment to chat with Stephanie Anne Mills (Seed) and get caught up with her, she’s delightful and such a joy to chat with.

And in the midst of it all, we finally found the hilarious Kate Hewlett, who we’re looking forward to having back on our show, and I had the unique pleasure of introducing her and Adam Korson to one another, and just watch the two of them goof and riff with one another right from the get-go, it was a lot of fun, and a highlight of the evening for me.

carrieThere were a few people there that we hadn’t met yet, and were eager to say hello to, and hope to persuade them to join us on our show, including the lovely Vanessa Matsui (Seed) and her co-star Matt Baram, as well as Kevin Hanchard and Inga Cadranel from Orphan Black.

It was a well put together event, and considering that there were over 100 people there celebs included, everything seemed to go very smoothly, and everyone got into the relaxed chatty atmosphere, wandering from circle to circle, introducing themselves and snapping pictures and getting autographs.

It was such an easy atmosphere, Brug’s Army did an amazing job, and it seemed to work brilliantly.

The thing that simply stumped Sue and I the most though, were there were people there, people we didn’t know, who knew us because they watch our show! One woman shared with us that not only did she love our chat with Adam and Carrie, and loved how we put our guests so at ease, but that she uses that episode to unwind after tough days, and just rewatches it for all the laughs (#appreciatewood).

tmrThat was really nice. I love when people ‘get’ our show like that, it makes me really happy.

In the end, it was a fantastic night, with a lot of friends and new friends, chatting, sharing a beverage and a laugh, and happily doing it all for an amazing cause.

Amanda Brugel and Brug’s Army did a fantastic thing on Sunday eve, and I hope it’s just the beginning of a number of events like this.

We had a great night, and it was so good to see all of you!

Thank you to everyone who came from near and far to join in the festivities for the evening!

And congratulations on helping to raise $21,000 for the hospital!

Brug’s Army is off to a great start! You can find them on Facebook and on Twitter.

Lost Girl S03E12 – Hail, Hale!

lgAhh, now this is what I’m talking about for a race to the finish line!

Steve Cochrane pens this week’s penultimate episode of the season and it’s definitely getting ready to pull out all the stops for the finale next week (unfortunately I’ll be away and won’t be able to see it until I get back, oh well).

I realize that perhaps the show can’t be like this all the time, but this one was pretty much firing on nearly all cylinders!

Bo (Anna Silk) almost takes a back seat with everything that is going on…

It’s supposed to be Hale’s (K.C. Collins) inauguration as Ash, and we learn he’s been trying to broker a form of peace with the Morrigan (Emanuelle Vaugier), and has actually invited her to attend the event, a huge first.

halemorriganThere’s still some friction between Hale and Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) who still thinks he’s acting like a douche.

Lauren (Zoie Palmer) is off with Isaac (Shawn Doyle) working in a lab, and coming up with something that Isaac exploits, as a poison. We were right not to trust him because he’s apparently involved in hunting the Fae down, having them fight against one another, and studying them. The dead ones apparently end up in that mass grave Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) and Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) discovered in last week’s ep.

Tamsin is still a bit of a drunk this week, dealing with things she know she has to do, but I don’t think wants to do any longer, and ends up in the bath with Bo for a moment… I do like their chemistry together, it just feels, well… naughty in the sexiest way.

trickLater at the Dal as Bo and Dyson have a chat a very familiar looking human bartender Jerry (Seth Cooperman) as Trick (Rick Howland) had to get ready for the ceremony. It seems though Jerry has been put in place by Isaac, and poisons Dyson, a blatant attack by a human on a Fae.

Dyson wakes up and finds himself having to fight a cage match to the death while his captor watches from the  open rooftop of an observatory. Great location!

Bo learns that Tamsin is up to no good with the potion she’s been preparing, Lauren discovers that Isaac is more evil than he initially appears, and the Morrigan uses the attack on Dyson to hold a vote of no confidence for Hale, and then proclaims that all claimed humans by any Fae are now terrorists, they are to be seized and await the setting of a date for their execution.

jpegThis rockets things along to Hale and Kenzi finally sharing a kiss, a long overdue one, while surreptitiously slipping the key for her handcuffs into her jacket pocket. There’s also a Fae wandering about, pestering Kenzi for the length of the episode about what if she were Fae, or had Fae powers… Kenzi thinks it’s a bit of a con, and I have to agree. I also hope that Kenzi doesn’t become Fae. It’s a more interesting dynamic having her as the outsider, but still family.

Tamsin gets shot, there’s a last second revelation, Trick gets kidnapped!!

Everything happens fast and furious in this episode, it’s just one thing after another, ratcheting up the tension…

laurenThe Wanderer is neither heard or mentioned by name at least, in fact the song doesn’t make an appearance at all in this episode as far as I can tell, though there is a nice cover of The Minstrel Boy playing in the Dal.

One of the things that we’d been talking about all week was the fact that Lauren left her mobile on her counter top, which Bo addresses as soon as she comes in, though no one asks why she left it on… Was it just so that we could see that Bo was calling last week as she was leaving?

This was a great episode to lead us into the final adventure of the season… I’ll be interested to see how many story threads are tied off, and what’s left unresolved for next season…

Lost Girl S03E09 – The Ceremony

lgThings get a little more Lynchian this week, with a script by James Thorpe and directed by Lee Rose. Bo (Anna Silk) under goes her Dawning, by entering the Temple. She can only get out when she has the key in hand.

We also get a little more hint of The Wanderer, while Bo (Anna Silk) is in the first part of the Temple (which looks remarkably like the Dal) and the classic tune by Dion is playing. Trick (Rick Howland), however, at the end of the episode says not him. So The Wanderer isn’t a reference to Bo, but someone (thing) that’s coming. Hmmm.

The crux of the episode if Bo going through the Temple to survive the Dawning and hopefully not devolve into some under-Fae.

Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) volunteers as her Hand, or protector in the Temple, which also means she doesn’t have to declare an alignment with the Light or Dark. She only takes Dyson after Lauren (Zoie Palmer) advises her she will need any advantage she can use. It’s nice to see that even though Lauren is hurting from the events of last week’s ep, she still loves Bo enough to show when she knows Bo needs her.

boUnder Stella’s (Deborah Odell) eye, which she doesn’t look on Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) kindly with, Bo and Dyson enter the Temple. Or rather apparently, reappear in the Dal, which is empty but for a radio playing The Wanderer and an old man referring to himself as The Caretaker. From there, they wander through a mish mash of rooms and realities, populated by familiar looking characters behaving in slightly off ways (although both Anna and Zoie look great in police uniforms!) and possible existences there in the Temple.

Now at this point, there can be a lot of conjecture, thoughts and even arguments about what everything means in the Lynchian creations inside the Temple, I also think that on repeated viewings watching all the details (though the pictures of that model showed up way too often, I felt like I was being hit over the head with it – sorry), and I mean all of them, there will be more and more revealed. Not only about Bo’s character but things to come. That’s my instinct anyway.

Bo’s resurrection of  Dyson by taking chi from her friends in the Dal was a little questionable. It’s no doubt she cares for him, and he’s finally revealed that he still loves her, and of course Bo has never played by the rules, but I was hoping she would at least have asked.

lostgirl309That one instant, for me, shows what a threat Bo could be to not only the Dark, but those she calls her friends and family as well.

And speaking of friends and family, I love the moment Trick and Kenzi had about what would happen should Bo not come through the Dawning as herself, and Trick confesses he sees the human as family. A long overdue moment and scene.

Having just checked the episode page on the Showcase site, apparently this episode is rather polarizing, and a lot of people are furious about the way Bo has treated Lauren. Neither side of the relationship is perfect, and this relationship with Lauren is obviously going through growing pains, like all relationships. It can’t be sunshine and roses all the time, otherwise the characters don’t change or grow.

Give it time, which we know Bo has now that she’s survived the Dawning. Now that is sorted, maybe she can get her love life on track…

Thoughts?

Lost Girl S03E08 – Fae-ge Against The Machine

lgThis week’s episode sees Bo (Anna Silk) dealing with the incredibly fast approach of her Dawning, and ends with the fantastic image of Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) standing in a rain shower of tarot cards depicting someone (thing?) called The Wanderer, and leaving us wondering what the hell this has to do with our favorite succubus?!

Alexandra Zarowny scripts this week with direction by Andy Mikita, and the story ends up being a cross between Jumanji, David Fincher’s The Game, and a little High Noon. Draw from that what you will.

Trick (Rick Howland) and Stella (Deborah Odell) are trying to prepare Bo for her invitation to the Temple, a rite of passage on the way to her Dawning. However, the arrival of a machine while Bo isn’t there, though she accidentally activated it before she left, means that a dangerous game has already started, and Trick must play in her stead.

Unfortunately, all of this happens on a special night for Lauren (Zoie Palmer) as she is being recognized for some of her work with an award.

fae-geAnd Bo just can’t seem to get away as she and Tamsin work to help Balzac (Ryan Belleville) rescue a decidedly odd young Fae, Hannah (Allie MacDonald) whose tears serve as highly potent drug in the Fae underworld.

Some of the moments feel downright Lynchian, including Bo’s interaction with the gatekeeper before entering Brazenwood, which looks like the Fae version of hillbilly hell, leading to a final showdown on what I guess would be the main street.

The episode is fun, but for me the best part is the new added factor of The Wanderer and Tamsin wondering and fearing (!) that Bo may be the One.  Hmmm!

I love the fact that though Bo didn’t know it, but Trick was helping her, guiding her, and helping in her choices as he plays the Machine’s game, which presents two choices at a time, and he has to pick the one that he believes Bo would, and his choices directly affect her.

That was cool, and allowed Trick some long overdue extended screen time, and have some fun moments with Stella, as their chemistry and interaction is a lot of fun to watch.

annaIt also looks like there may be some strife coming along in the Bo-Lauren relationship as Bo, under the influence of the Machine, makes a huge faux pas with the doc, and Lauren hangs up on her. Sure it could be a tiff, all couples have them, but then, a knock on the door and there’s Dr. Isaac Felt (Shawn Doyle) to chat with the doctor, he’s a nice guy, laughs at her jokes, and wants to get know her mind.

But there’s also a new added tension between Tamsin and Bo, who share a kiss, caused by Trick and Stella, but you can tell, that both of them are thinking about it as the episode comes to a close.

Personally I just think that adds to the depth of Tamsin’s character, because I still think we’re learning lots about her, as she is herself. She may be Dark Fae, but there’s more to her than that. She’s seen how Bo and the gang love and support one another, and I think she not only finds Bo attractive (and who doesn’t?) but she finds the family dynamic of that appealing as well, so I think those factors are coming into play big time for her.

It’s a good ep, not There’s Bo Place Like Home good, but it does set up a number of nice things for the rest of the season…

What are your thoughts on The Wanderer?

Lost Girl S03E07 – There’s Bo Place Like Home

lgThis week Anna Silk pulls out all the stops as Bo and puts us through the emotional wringer. Brendon Yorke penned this week’s episode, and as I was delighted to see that it was directed by Gail Harvey!!

As the Dawning, Bo’s rite of passage grows closer, with the threat of her devolving into an under-Fae hanging over her head, Trick (Rick Howland) tells her essentially to move forward she must be able to forgive her past. In Bo’s case, the hateful and painful accusations her mother (Nola Augustson) laid on her when she was a teen and first experiencing the first appearance of her Fae powers, which resulted in the death of her boyfriend.

She and her mother had a huge falling out, and things that family say to you can weigh on you for a long time.

So Bo and Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) set off for Bumpkinville, to face Bo’s mother, and try to forgive her. On arriving at the old homestead however, we learn that her mom is suffering from a touch of dementia, and doesn’t always remember when or where she is, and is just delighted to have Bo home again.

boAlong the way we learn that there is a Fae stalking old classmates of Bo’s, who all had a hand in a seance on the same night her boyfriend died. It seemed something was let loose, and is now intent on killing them.

The episode is filled with delightful moments, with Kenzi jabbing Bo in the ass with needles to keep her other side in check, happily supplied by the good Dr. Lauren (Zoie Palmer). Trick realizes that Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) has had his love for Bo returned, and Trick also has a love or at least lust interest thrown his way in the form of Stella Nashira (Deborah Odell) who is on hand to offer counsel and guidance for Bo’s Dawning. Oh, and let’s not forget Kenzi and Bo in sun dresses! I also like the fact that everything is bright and sunny in Bo’s hometown, while anything to do with Fae (Bo mostly excluded of course) are more hidden in shadows, and darkness. The Dal is dark, the sky goes dark when Lady Polly (Phillipa Domville) shows up, the past, or at least Bo’s stroll down memory lane when she goes home, is always sunny, even though it hurts her to face her past. It was a nice touch.

For all that though, it is the episode’s emotional climax which makes this episode a stand-out, as Bo realizes she can forgive her mother.

kenziThe two of them sit at a table, observed unseen by Kenzi, in a beautiful scene that touches on not only mother-daughter relationships, but families in general. Anna actually made me cry in this episode, so nice work to all on that count! It’s a lovely scene, and watching as both women breakdown is just heart-touching, and truly a special moment for the series.

We know where Bo is, but now we get to see where she came from, and not only the events that shaped her, but the people as well. The tenderness both Anna and Nola show in this scene, the way she exposes  herself emotionally on camera in this episode… I think we’re get to know Bo in the episode more so than any other episode prior.

This one goes down as a great episode as far as I’m concerned, and while there is a villain in the piece, I’m so glad it didn’t overshadow the emotional side of the story.

Then of course, ending the way the episode did with Anna asking why Kenzi went to see the Norn….

Nice.

Lost Girl S03E06 – The Kenzi Scale

lgAha!!

Now we get to it!

This week’s Lost Girl not only helped us sort out what the hell was happening with Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) last week, though we still don’t know what the final outcome of her Fae induced rash will be. We learn that Kenzi was grabbed by a fox Fae that night by the dumpster, and has since by in her warren while the fox Fae, a rather distrubed being (though part of that may have been caused by Tamsin’s (Rachel Skarsten) interference).

The fox Fae, Inari, is looking to belong, looking for friendship, acceptance and be loved. She was a little unbalanced, we learn from a group of fox(y) Fae that Tamsin has protected. Tamsin, as a Valkyrie can sow doubt into the minds of their opponents, something we see when she exercises that talent on Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried).

It all starts with Bo (Anna Silk) bringing Kenzi into the Dal in attempt to convince Trick (Rick Howland), Dyson and Tamsin, that she is not who Kenz is not who she appears to be. When Kenzi reveals that Bo is killing again, Trick has our favorite succubus locked away until they can figure out what is going on.

kenziEvil Kenzi uses this opportunity to exploit a relationship with Dyson, which leads to a violent confrontation.

It hurts Bo, that not only her grandfather and Dyson don’t believe her, but Lauren (Zoie Palmer) doesn’t either, and that may cause some problems for them down the road, by episode’s end when Lauren tries to apologize Bo tells her that she can’t deal with that now.

Lauren however learns some worrying truths when she uses the DNA sample she takes from Bo to find out what’s wrong with her, we learn that something is very wrong with Bo.

Other interesting things we learned is that there may be something else going on with Tamsin. Bo, who’s flagging because of something that is in her system, replacing her cells, feeds off Tamsin, and Bo notices there’s something unsual about her chi.

The Morrigan (Emmanuelle Vaugier) makes an appearance, reminding Tamsin of her allegiances and that she wants Bo dead. Her hate is really escalating, and is beginning to be more of a threat to our heroes. Tamsin visits the coma victim from Bo’s first feeding at the beginning of the season, and though it will be damaging to him, she wakes him from his coma, and he identifies Bo as the one who attacked him. Tamsin however does not share this with The Morrigan, who warns her about the choices she’s making.

lost-girl-the-kenzi-46903_bigKenzi, in a true display of friendship and faith, never gives up hope on Bo and Dyson rescuing her, and even all dirty still dresses better than evil Kenzi, although she can certainly rock one of Dyson’s shirts and little else. Wow.

Finally, as the episode draws to its end, and Kenzi is safely returned to the loving embrace of her friends, we learn more about this thing that is replacing the cells in Bo’s body.

Trick calls it The Dawning, but it seems to be 200 years early in Bo’s case. It seems it’s a rite of passage, a test of some sort that is coming Bo’s way, and if she fails it, she will devolve into an under-Fae.

It looks like Bo is going to have some tough times before her…

The Morrigan is going to be more trouble…

Is Kenzi going to start exhibiting some Fae abilities?…

How damaged is Lauren and Bo’s relationship now?…

And then there’s Tamsin…
