Lost Girl Review: Happy Birthday Bo

by at . Comments

The Ash may have locked up Lauren for four days, but she was rewarded for the imprisonment.

Over those days, Lachlan investigated the cursing nail, which is what she asked for in the first place and the result was her greatest wish: Nadia woke up.

Bo Tries To Free Lauren

The story of Nadia's illness and ultimately her curse was much more involved that I expected. Compared to Lachlan, the former Ash seemed to be a decent leader, so his manipulation of the situation was unexpected.

It was cruel to purposefully put Nadia in a coma in order to force Lauren into servitude. The former Ash's plan worked as Lauren found the cure for the Fae virus and then for some reason he decided to continue to use her for research. Now, that Lauren has re-committed to Lachlan, I fear something will happen to Nadia. Will their love continue where it left off or will Nadia tire of living under the Fae control with Lauren. I don't see any way they can have a fairy tale ending.

Besides, there is Bo. She risked her life to save Nadia. When Lachlan first mentioned that he wanted Bo to go to the Congo, I wondered how they would be able to resolve that within"Masks." The journey to Africa itself would take days. The Fae travel agency was an ingenious solution. Plus, the travel agent provided a little comic relief in an otherwise serious episode

At some point, Lauren and Bo have to have a heart-to-heart about what happened and Lauren will acknowledge her true feelings for Bo. Though, I'm more concerned about what Bo is going to do when she finds out about Lachlan's treatment of Lauren. She's not going to be happy.

Bo isn't happy anyway, is she? She's lost Dyson and now Lauren. At the party, even the gifts from her friends made her feel alone. Weapons and more weapons, so impersonal for those closest to her. Trick's gift of his wife's bracelet to help out Lauren was much more personal. After all Bo has been through in her life, she finally thought she had found a new family, but that is shifting. While she was their center of attention, they are each finding companionship elsewhere.

Bo is in a vulnerable emotional place right now. That makes the appearance of the mystery man all the more worrisome. Who sent the bracelet? And, what does the engraving say? The immediate future looks dark for Bo, her friends, and the Fae.

Lauren and Nadia kissing was gross.

But we already know who Bo's mother is.
There's got to be some other storyline going with Trick's wife. And, was Dyson shocked to learn about Trick's wife or that he told Bo? Surprised that Bo just slid that mystery braclet right onto her wrist even after all the bizarre things she's seen lately. Yes, Lauren should have negotiated a better deal. Still don't really like her character and never really gave much of substance to Bo. Love Kensi when she's smiling like this. Enjoyed the travel agency.
"Take a number."
But kept trying to figure out how they got back so distracted feom next scene.

The only redeeming quality about this episode is that we learned the lengths Bo is willing to go through for Lauren. It was truly a sacrifice and an ultimate act of selfless love to save the woman she obviously loves knowing she would be losing her in the process. The fact is aggravated by the Ash using her emotions to achieve his goals. "I guess Dyson fans must be asking when Bo will be going into battle with the Norn."
Not happening. I find it interesting that Bo never once sacrificed anything for Dyson. She did for Lauren. Twice this season so far.

What? No mention of the bracelet that Bo receives from Mysterious Guy during the party and foolishly slips onto her wrist? It is 100% certain to be something bad. How can Bo be so incautious? She just crossed a meany who can turn anything into flesh-eating sand and a shaman who can curse people by knocking nails into boards. She's got plenty of enemies who would snare her with an evil gift in a flash if they thought it would work. The travel agency was cute but the travel itself was nothing. And how did they get back, anyway? That wasn't covered. As for the old Ash vs. the new Ash ... neither one is a winner.

I've already seen this season and I can assure you there will be more of kenzi's neighbor but I woulnt say anything more cause I don't want to ruin anything.

Bo got a bunch of lame presents both Dyson and Trick gave her weapons too. Then Kenzi gave her book full of drawings of the worst birthday party ever. Bo put her life on the line to get Nadia de-nailed for Lauren her only reward to see Lauren happy. I guess Dyson fans must be asking when Bo will be going into battle with the Norn. And is this really the end of Bo/Lauren ...? What Lost Girl gives with one hand, it takes away with the other. My advice, don't bet money you don't want to lose.

Did anyone else notice that Trick was giving Bo a lot of stuff from his ex-wife? That says to me that his ex wife was Bo's mother and that he is really her father, and if he isn't, he knows who is. Oh, and I was glad to see that Kenzi didn't get her weapons for gifts...that was so LAME of Lauren to give her throwing stars!
Oh, and I have to say KUDOS to the SyFy channel for giving us TWO episodes of Lost Girl next week, one on Monday and one on Friday...I can hardly wait! I love this show, and I hope it stays on the SyFy channel for many years to come. Oh, and Kenzi's cute neighbor is just that, adorable, I hope we see more of him!

Yes, I agree, this episode was rather depressing for our heroine succubus, Bo, and I felt just awful for her when I saw her sitting in the middle of her birthday party, surrounded by friends but all alone, the only person in the room without a love life. I think that Lauren should have taken the chance to determine a specific amount of years she will be enslaved to the Ash, instead of just bending knee and declaring fealty forever...for a smart woman, she makes some stupid choices. Still, at least she is with Nadia now and will leave Bo alone, thank heaven. I find her character so dull and uninteresting! I would like to see Bo fight for Dyson, or at least try to get his feelings back from the Norn.I do not want Dyson to end up with Ciara permanently, because she's also pretty boring as a character...not at all kick-ass and fun like Bo and Kenzi. She is pretty wimpy and mousy, and I don't really see what Dyson sees in her after having had such a wild rumpus with Bo. Did anyone else notice that Trick was giving Bo a lot of stuff from his ex-wife? That says to me that his ex wife was Bo's mother and that he is really her father, and if he isn't, he knows who is. Oh, and I was glad to see that Kenzi didn't get her weapons for gifts...that was so LAME of Lauren to give her throwing stars!
