Lost Girl Review: There Will Only Be Me!

by at . Comments

"Death Didn't Become Him" introduced us to two of the creepiest Fae that we have met so far. These creatures set an almost horror film tone for the episode, which is not particularly to my liking.

The Cheeno was disgusting. Seriously, why would any being want to eat its own flesh? Gross! I didn't think there could be anything worse, but then came along the Lich. In order to defy death, he not only ate humans, but he resurrected corpses to feed his hunger for knowledge. The idea that the Lich could take corpses, control them, and absorb their energy was creepy. And, his disintegrating skin didn't help either.

Bo Looks For a Stolen Body

At least, the Kenzi-Hale-Tori storyline provided some comic relief from the gross Fae storyline. When Tori threw up all over Hale and he freaked out, it cracked me up. Kenzi and Hale are becoming a pleasant partnering to watch.

While this case-of-the-week was too much for me, it provided character moments that were some of my favorite of the series. For the first time ever, Dyson and Bo worked together without any inkling of their past personal feelings showing. They were friendly, but Bo didn't show any angst around Dyson. At the same time, Dyson didn't show any regret. While I miss their passion, I'm glad to see they have both moved on or at least are able to hide their feelings around each other.

While the passion was no longer there between Dyson and Bo, it was heating up between Bo and Lauren. With Nadia revealed and in the picture now, it seems like an odd time for Bo and Lauren to become closer than ever. They have made passionate love in the past, but now that Lauren's secret is out, their emotional connection is growing.

Bo's unwillingness to kill Lauren and her decision to sacrifice herself first went beyond her desire to live a morale life. She cares deeply for Lauren. That love gave her strength that she had never accessed before. And, that power was scary!

Did Bo reveal the power within her that Trick has feared? Bo's declaration after taking the Lich's power from his animated corpses was a threat. A threat to the Fae way of life.

Bo: I can be more powerful than all other Fae. Everyone will kneel at my feet. There will be no more Dark and no more Light. There will be only me. Rawwr. | permalink

What will Lauren do with this knowledge? Will she tell The Ash? Or, keep Bo's secret? Either way, I fear for Bo now that this power has been unleashed.

The Lich provided information that will help them save Nadia. The nail symbolizes that a curse, not an illness, is keeping Nadia in the coma. Now, Lauren and Bo have to find the piece of wood that is holding the curse and then they can save Nadia.

Bo and Lauren are being drawn closer together through their quest to save Nadia is potentially a problem. What will happen if they do save Nadia? Will Lauren go back to her girlfriend? Or, is her love for Bo that much stronger? At this point, I have to go with the later. Why else would Lauren passionately kiss Bo right in front of her comatose girlfriend?

I agree with Carla the reviewer, in that this episode had some seriously gross moments that were more horror fiction than science fiction/fantasy. The creepy butcher eating his own hand (eww) and that nasty Lich were almost too much for me, as I felt like barfing, too (just not on Hale).
But the Kenzi-Hale storyline really brought the episode out of the darkness for me, and I enjoyed seeing Kenzi's reaction to Hale without a shirt...the Fae has some nice abs!
Though I hope we will get to see more of Dyson in upcoming episodes, it was good to see Dyson and Bo working together again, even if they aren't sharing passionate embraces anymore.
I'm glad that SyFy has bought season 3,and I can hardly wait to see it!

I'm a couple episodes ahead now. I've been marathonning. It's getting more complex. Lich and Creeno were very creepy. Bo's Super-Fay moment was awesome. Tory storyline was good comedic relief.

I'd like to lable this Carry on Camping. Before the Doccubi roar into action I mean camp in the sense of almost pantomime proportions. I almost expected the Lich to say ... boys and girls shall we make the Succubus feed. You didn't shout loud enough." "Oh, yes we did! Oh no you didn't! Should loud enough and you'll meet, SuperBo!" I can't decide whether the Lich was great or the biggest ham yet. I remember watching it and laughing in all the wrong places. Still strangley mesmeric, loved everyone in it.

I agree with you because I've also seen the entire season and it plays a major part in it and you may not like the rest of the season if you didn't like this episode and probably not the third season either since everything after this episode leads up to a huge season finally that will leave you with questions. I liked this episode and I like all the episodes after because it only gets better and season 3 should be the best out of them all.

Easily one of the best season 2 episodes. It's actually my favorite after Vexed. And I watched the entire season. This is such a key episode that if you didn't like it, it's highly unlikely you will enjoy what's to come (and that applies to season 3 as well).

Lost Girl Season 2 Episode 8 Quotes

Bo: So, we're looking for a flesh-eating Fae foody?
Dyson: Or his butcher?

Lauren: Look, if somebody that I slept with and care about told me that they had a girlfriend in a coma trapped inside a top secret facility run by a society of uber-humanoids called the Fae -- I'd think it was a blow off. I really need you to meet her.
Bo: Okay.
