Lost Girl Review: Sex is Never Just Sex

by at . Comments

While the Fae have highs, they definitely have miserable lows as well. And after being dissed by Dyson, Bo didn't want to get out of bed this week on Lost Girl.

I'm sure most of us have felt that way after the end of a relationship, though I'm not sure it would be that intense after just one date. And Bo wasn't the only one dealing with it.

A Look from Bo

Dyson's decision to push Bo away was weighing on him, too. He got out of bed, but the perps around him probably wished he didn't. He overreacted and had three complaints in one week, including the broken arm we saw. That was definitely not a way for Dyson to keep his police job, which is essential to the Fae.

Kenzi convinced Bo to get face the world, but really, she probably would have been better off sleeping the depression away. Instead, she drank and sexed it away. The sex between Bo and Dyson may have been hot, but a three-some with Bo, a Fury, and her husband... wow! That was not a scene I expected to see on Syfy. Not that I'm complaining, it wasn't gratuitous, like on True Blood, actually fitting the story here appropriately.

Lost Girl is doing a nice job of slowly introducing us to the different types of Fae. This time, a case of jealousy went awry and people died. Though it really didn't play out at all as expected. It was a nice twist that Samir, the supposed cheating husband, was being stalked by a crazy woman. Yes, he did sleep with her once, but it wasn't a love affair, as his wife thought.

The wife's jealousy ended up stopping a serial killer. I never saw it coming that Jenny was the one that murdered Samir, did you? I really thought the wife did it until the last few minutes of her life. But Jenny? The procedural element of the series is my least favorite, but if the surprise twist continue that could change.

Here, a human was the culprit, not a Fae - a pleasant surprise. Jenny's reaction to Bo's touch was also a lesson that she needed to learn. She can't use her Fae powers on humans without repercussions.

In the end, "Faetal Attraction" left quite a few deaths to be cleaned up but they were all attributed to the human serial killer, and Dyson got commended at work. He even opened up to the police therapist about Bo.

But... what were they thinking? Friends with benefits? That is not going to end well! They both developed deep feelings for each other after one night together; this is going to be a disaster. And how is Trick going to feel about it? It is exactly what he told Dyson NOT to do.

Still, I can't wait to see how it develops. I love their interactions; the way they play off each other is fun to watch. What do you think about this new arrangement? Disaster? Think they can make it work?

Hot threesome. Hilarious Kenzi. Good case. Obviously there's going to be trouble with Bo and Dyson being idiots with each other.

This was a great episode. My favorite part was Kenzi finding the head in Jenny's bag with the chainsaw it was pretty creepy. I also liked the part were Bo came in to save Kenzi and Jenny picked up the severed head and played it with like 8 other ones I was a little freaked out. My favorite of the whole episode was deffinetly Kenzi making Bo get up so she could get over her rejection.

I'm more interested in the interactions between Bo and the doctor, to be honest. They have crazy chemistry together and the actresses play off each other really well. I wonder how this Fae/Human thing is going to work, I mean, I do know there is an ongoing love triangle and being completely unspoiled how is the Bo/Doctor thing going to work unless Bo learns how to control her urges? It is a much more interesting relationship and I like the slow burn thing in contrast to the shoving down our throats relationship Bo and Dyson have. And yes, that threesome was HOT. I also totally loved Kenzi this episode, what a great sidekick!

Gold star for Kenzi. Rebound sex was exactly what I needed.

Bo

It doesn't matter because Lauren is human. I sleep with her and she dies.
