Lost Girl Review: War is Coming

at . Comments

There is so much we don't know about the Fae world on Lost Girl.

"Barometz. Trick. Pressure" provided insight into both its history and future. In this case, it looks like history is set to repeat itself unless the unaligned Bo can stop it.

The Lost Girl

With the Blood Moon came important reveals. Trick has been full of mystery; we knew that he was the Blood King, but not much else. Through his visions, the consequences of his decisions during The Great Fae War were revealed. He used his blood to change fate and with that came delayed resolution.

Despite telling Trick she would leave The Ash alone, Bo broke into his place anyway. She ended up finding not one, but many, Lachlan heads in the trunk. When he confronted her, they had an awesome sword fight. Bo held her own against The Ash, that's for sure. In the end, he conceded to her, but she couldn't follow through and kill him. Bo passed his test; she proved compassionate with a moral code that her mother, Aife, was lacking. Bo earned Lachlan's trust and he brought her in on the dire future ahead.

Trick's vision and Lachlan's reveal aligned to provide a view of the coming battle. The Garuda are back. This creature feeds on the Fae's anger and rage. With the end of The Great Fae War, that source was decimated and the Garuda suffered. Trick used his blood to interrupt fate and the natural end to the war never came. Now, the war will pick up where it left off and The Ash wants Bo to lead the fight.

What will Trick and Dyson think of Bo teaming up with The Ash in this battle? I can't imagine they will be happy about it. And, what form will this war take? How do the Garuda and Fae fight? Lachlan is a Naga and his venom can kill the Garuda, but how does that work?

More often then not, Lauren has been a bore to watch. If she came back and started working on a way to replicate the Naga venom or use it to create a weapon, that would provide a purpose for her to be involved. And, perhaps add depth to her relationship with Bo.

I don't necessarily mind the Fae-in-crisis weekly stories, but I prefer when the show addresses the bigger Fae picture. This storyline should provide the avenue to give us more insight into this world and that is a good thing.

Odds and Ends

  • The shifter turning into Bo was freaky. And, her succubusing herself was just weird. But, it worked.
  • I don't trust Nate. I'm not sure why. Maybe because of the nature of the show, but there is just something too perfect about his re-entry into Kenzi's life.
  • Kenzi is set to go on the road with Nate. Please don't be gone too long. Bo needs Kenzi. But, also, don't have a crisis on the road that you need to be saved. That would be too predictable.
  • Hale's reaction to finding out that Trick was the Blood King was priceless. And, then that Bo knew and he didn't.
  • Dyson saying out loud that he couldn't love Ciara was no surprise, but it was comforting to know it was true.
  • Was that the goodbye between Bo and Kenzi? I hope not. It was a sad parting.

I just got around to watching this episode after being on vacation and I loved it! I really like the arc and can't wait to see how it ends. I do have to agree though with the criticism of Lauren. I just don't get the attraction between her and Bo due to the fact that we have barely seen her in both seasons. I have heard that she becomes the one for Bo by the end of this season, but I have a hard time seeing how that can be possible unless she comes back big time in this latter part of the season (and she might, I haven's read any specific spoilers). Also agree about being over heartless Dyson. We get it... he can't love Ciara. Let her go, get your heart back and fight for Bo! Learn to share (since she's a succubus!) or move on to someone else. This triangle is very boring at the moment and I hate not having someone to passionately root for...


There might be a symmetry to that book and Lost Girl-- but I leave that in the capable hands of sociologists and TV Reviewers.


This episode was pretty great for alot of plot movement. I enjoyed the normal 2min screentime of Bo/Lauren as a nuanced performace full of things unsaid. Brilliant. I LOVED Trick and the boys as his backup. The potential of the Garuda--FABULOUS! Swordfights? GOD AWESOME. Too bad Lachlan wound up being the good guy. He was a great badguy. @R-- why in gods name do you even ask this question? It's a matter of preference. And the enjoyment of ACTING on a television screen. I could ask reviewers and commenters the same-- Why do you like Dyson? He's so boring. "BO! YOUR THE ONLY ONE FOR ME! I WONT SHARE YOU! I"M A WEREWOLF!" um.. what the heckfire is so original with that All the effing characters have faults. That's what makes them interesting to watch and interesting to play. If they didn't they would all be Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Puke. Who is perfect, a billionaire, does nothing without being sexy and is a DOUCHEBAG. I might say there is a symmetry here to Lost Girl... but. I leave that in the capable hands of sociologists and TV Reviewers.


So, we won't be seeing Lauren and Kenzi next episode? And that's supposed to work because...? Kenzi is the best character! *Why are people so pro Lauren*
Because they appreciate subtlety. She is nuanced and layered. People like that better than Twilight-esque characters such as Dyson.


Why are people so pro Lauren. I don't care for her. I think she is indecisive and too secretive. I like Dyson, have from the beginning.
I hope Trick doesn't get killed.


The Ash manipulated Bo and Lauren for a reason. Lauren is obviously the key to defeat The Garuda. She's the only doctor/scientist on the show and it makes sense she'll be the one to assemble the Naga venom so Bo can defeat the Garuda. That's her purpose, unlike Dyson, who has none. Best episode of the season.


If you're not bored with Dyson's lost heart by now,you have stamina girl and if you continue smitten until the end of the series, ah well, a shippers heart. This episode shows what Lost Girl could be if they tried a bit harder with the arc plot ... you may note it disappeared for nearly ever with relationship detours. Sadly it ducks out of sight rather quickly for more nonsense.


Turning point of season 2.
