  This week’s episode takes us inside the mind of Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) as he is held by The Keeper (Christine Horne) and the Una Mens, not for his reaction at the end of last week’s episode, but for crimes of his past, murdering both human and Fae. Bo (Anna Silk) refuses to believe Dyson…

Lost Girl S04E06 – Of All The Gin Joints

  This week’s ep of Lost Girl, came across as a slower, gentler story that had some fun moments, and sees some great pay off finally for those who have been waiting for the Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) and Hale (K.C. Collins) romance to come to fruition. We also learn that Bo (Anna Silk) while aboard…
