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.
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.
Kenzi, 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…
