Lost Girl Review: Betrayed Again?
Dyson's away and Bo will play.
Okay, that's not exactly how it happened on "It's Better to Burn Out Than Fae Away." But, if Dyson had been around, would Bo have hooked up with Lauren? I'm not sure. Bo claimed that she didn't go to bed with Lauren because of Dyson, but a broken heart is difficult to heal. Even if Bo doesn't believe it, Lauren is a her rebound girl. It may stick, but it may not either.
The first time Bo and Lauren were together, they had chemistry, but that was missing this time around. Bo and Dyson had a relationship full of intensity and sexual heat that Bo and Lauren just don't possess. At least not yet. Perhaps it's because of Lauren's previous betrayal or just due to her neediness. Whatever the reason, Bo had a stronger connection to Dyson than she has ever shown with Lauren.
Plus, we found out that Lauren is keeping another big secret from Bo: a girlfriend! What? Will Bo be able to forgive Lauren for this secret? Probably, since Bo is too forgiving.
Outside of Bo's relationship woes, her independence from the Dark and Light Fae made her the perfect investigator for The Morrigan to use. One of her artists killed a Dark Fae and was painting incriminating graffiti. Jason's artwork threatened to expose the Fae to the public.
Vex is one of my favorite Fae foes. The showdown between The Morrigan and Vex looked to be an epic battle, but unfortunately it wasn't to be. Instead, it was The Morrigan's assistant, Bianca, who was behind Jason's actions. The artwork scheme never seemed fitting for either Vex or The Morrigan.
Bo's involvement in the case provided an opportunity for her to free Lauren from The Ash. Speaking of, how long will the Dark and the Light allow Bo to stay in the middle and use them against each other? There is no way The Ash is going to be happy that Bo is using information from The Morrigan against him.
Though, what was it that The Morrigan gave to Bo? The way to get Lauren away from The Ash is to save Nadia, Lauren's girlfriend. Is Nadia the reason that Lauren left Bo's house to return to The Ash? He threatened her "special project," which appears to be Nadia.
What will Bo do? Will she save Nadia to get freedom for Lauren, even if that means she will lose Lauren? Bo is an honorable person and too kind for her own good sometimes, but either way she will want to do right by Lauren. Even if Lauren betrayed her (again!).
This episode provided few answers to the Fae world, but plenty of questions. The big mystery for the next few episodes seems to be headed towards Lauren. I'd rather have Bo go to the Norn and work on "fixing" Dyson, but that will have to wait awhile. What do you want Bo to focus on? Fixing Dyson or freeing Lauren?
Do you want Bo to be with Dyson or Lauren?
