Lost Girl Review: Fae Striptease!

by at . Comments

It has become clear on Lost Girl that having special Fae powers is not always a fun ride. This magical world is filled with servitude and sacrifice.

"Fae Gone Wild" is right! The Selkies knew how to put the whole police department into a sexual hypnotic state. I loved that it appeared to be a planned striptease routine, yet there was a hint of a purpose behind what they were doing. What a brilliant plan to get the killer out of police custody.

Bo Goes Undercover

With Bo and Dyson still a bit uncomfortable around each other, it was a nice change for them to be working a mystery, but not together. Most often it seems one of them will get a case and ask the other to help out. The divide between them could be felt as they kept each other out of the loop. Ultimately, they ended up in the same place together.

Dyson's sacrifice, while unspoken, permeated the episode. When Sheri asked him if he ever had something taken away from him. Her plea convinced Dyson to cover up the Selkies' crime, since they were after the freedom that was taken away from them.

It was also apparent after a steamy love scene between Dyson and Ciara. The nudity on Lost Girl seems to get more brazen as the series goes along. That was a lot of Ciara boob, yet it didn't seem gratuitous at all. Their intimacy made Dyson's look of regret over Ciara's shoulder all the more heartbreaking. He may be with her and potentially creating a combined home, but he knows what he has lost.

Just as the Selkies were trapped into servitude by Lewis, Lauren was by the Ash. At least Lauren wasn't tricked into it and instead willingly made the agreement. Bo's anger at Lauren thankfully subsided once she learned the truth about Nadia. How do you tell someone you are falling for that your lover has been in a coma for five years? Is it acceptable to move on with someone else?

In this case, it is a tough call. Since Lauren is bound to the Ash because of her girlfriend, she probably should have been upfront with Bo right away. That didn't happen, so it became a difficult secret to reveal. In the end, the gift from Morrigan will probably bring Lauren and Bo closer together. What was in the box? And, will it save Nadia? If it does, then what happens between Lauren and Bo?

In other Fae news, unprovoked fighting between the Light and Dark Fae has broke out. Trick's concerned about what has caused this violence and sought Lauren's advice. Neither of them knew why the fighting was happening. Will Trick bring Dyson and Bo in to investigate? Is it possible Aife is nearby? The next big Fae mystery to be solved!

I love Lost Girl. Half of the pleasure of watching is that you don't have to over-think the show. Lost Girl doesn't take itself too seriously and watching the characters unfold is a whole lot of fun. The premise is interesting too. Thanks, Syfy!

Good episode. New Fae, new magic, new background. Mysterious ending.

A more balanced review but still asking leading questions about Lauren. I'll bite as I find the writing of Lauren perplexing. First off, I think the only logic of Lauren's running away is that she panicked. She doesn't want to put Nadia at risk. She doesn't want Bo to go and fight her corner because she knows Bo is impetuous and acts before she thinks. Actually both Lauren and Kenzi know this and stop her from facing the Ash in Episode 2.05. Bo is very grateful to Lauren because she is the one that gave her hope of not being a monster and taught her how to temper her skills. Can you imagine what would have happened in 1.08 if Lauren had told Bo that the Ash had told her to keep Bo busy, by implication, sleep with her and she couldn't disobey him because he might pull the plug on her comatose girlfriend. Forget Vex,Bo would have been kicking in the door of the compound to fight the Ash. Of course that would never have happened because they hadn't made Nadia up yet. Shoe horning Nadia in to expand the series really caused problems for Lauren's character much as Dyson's lost love makes him progressively less than endearing in Season 2.
