This week’s episode of Lost Girl begins to give us more questions about what’s going on with our heroes than answers.
Bo (Anna Silk) and Lauren (Zoie Palmer) are trying to find a balance between their relationship, and Bo’s need to feed. While they agree that it’s best that Bo has some extracurricular activities you can see in Lauren’s eyes that she’s of two minds about it. The scientific side of her realizes that Bo needs more than her to survive, but the emotional side is more than a little hurt by it I think.
It gets worse when the little dalliance that Bo brings back to the apartment winds up dead not so very far away… And both Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) and Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) are starting to think that the unaligned succubus may have more to do with it than she’s admitting to. Dyson doesn’t believe she’s capable of murder, but her scent on the body is unmistakable. Tamsin, affiliated as she is with the Dark, is more than willing to believe the Bo murdered the woman, and the other fae from the end of episode 1. Trouble is coming to Bo town…
In the interim though Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) has run down a case for her and her bestie to investigate, it seems a human male has simply collapsed into a pile of green goo. Their leads bring them to a sex club, a Bacchanalia, run by Roman (Damon Runyan), who as our heroes investigate learn some rather troubling things, and a new sub-fae is introduced and partially glimpsed, and let me just say, GAH!
Woven through all of this, are secrets, there is so much going on here now that we don’t know. I was struck halfway through the episode that our trio, Lauren, Bo and Kenzi are all keeping things from each other, whether they know it or not. Bo, in the episode’s climax goes all glowy-eyed again, and threatens Lauren, until the good doctor talks her down slowly… but now Lauren knows something is terribly wrong with her lover. A fact she shares with someone via phone at the end of the episode. Who?
Then of course, there’s the whole thing with Kenzi. At the tail end of last week’s episode we saw Kenzi pulled off into the dark, and yet this week, here she is. Bo even mentions the phone call that Kenzi made before she was grabbed, so it’s not something we dreamed about.
We also see through the course of the episode that this is not the Kenzi we know and love, she’s manipulative and cruel, trying to turn Bo and Lauren against one another, and a total lack of compassion for anyone else but herself. This is not our Kenzi.
Despite that, Bo doesn’t do anything about odd-Kenzi until the episode’s end, when she slams her up against a column and demands to know where Kenzi really is!!
A strong episode, seriously lacking in Trick (Rock Howland) though. Our fave King only has about 3 scenes, though his delivery of the line “So many glasses to polish” is priceless as well as his dialogue with Kenzi clarifying that he did not say anything about being Bo’s grandfather and going to the Bacchanalia.
Keep these strong episodes coming, but please, more Trick and hey, how about some with our temporary Ash, Hale (K.C. Collins)?
And maybe some answers…
