Lost Girl Review: Troubled Fae
The Fae world is full of conflict that unfortunately is feeding right into The Garuda's plans.
The Fae case was intriguing in "The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire" primarily because it provided background about that universe, but also disrupted the relationships of the main characters.
Bo and friends have been aware that The Garuda is coming to suck the life out of the Fae world, but other Fae have been kept in the dark. With the death of two Noble Fae and the defeat of the Cherufe, Bo revealed the truth to the Clans.
Unfortunately for the Fae, the Clans didn't care. They wanted to continue their fighting despite the greater consequences. Their arrogance could be the downfall of the entire species. Though, I'm not sure why it fell to Bo to tell them. Why didn't The Ash do it? And, what about The Morrigan?
On the relationship side, they continued to be messed up. Lauren is still with Nadia, who gets creepier by the day. Is Nadia crazy or possessed? Up until the end of this episode, I thought she was just needy and possessive of Lauren. That would make sense given that she was in a coma for five years and awoke to a changed world.
After her hand cutting incident, it appears that she may be possessed. Could it be The Garuda? She was caught inspecting Bo's weapons. And, then she cut her hand similar to what Trick did in "Barometz. Trick. Pressure." Did The Ash that cursed Nadia do it for a specific reason? And, now that it has been undone are the Fae at risk? Nadia now appears to be much more than a human.
Whatever is up with Nadia, I hope it ends with her no longer with Lauren. They may have loved each other in the past, but Lauren isn't happy with this clingy version of her girlfriend. Lauren is trapped between her servitude to The Ash and Nadia, which has suppressed her spunk.
In other relationships, Bo has continued to see Ryan in secret. That's not going to go over well at all when Kenzi finds out. Since his mistake with Nate and the recording contract, he has seemed to help Bo more than harm her, but he is Dark Fae. It won't be long until his beliefs clash with Bo's.
Nate's still around? It was a surprise to see that he is still dating Kenzi. The last we saw of him, he was upset with her over the broken recording contract deal. Nate was gone, but now he's back. One complaint (and it may be the only one) about Lost Girl is the inconsistency of some characters. Another example is from earlier this season, Dyson and Bo were fine working together and then the next episode they are still struggling with the end of their relationship.
It's like Nate was brought back, just to create conflict when Hale asked Kenzi to be his "girlfriend." I've been a fan of a Kenzi-Hale relationship for a while and I'd love to see it even more now. They are good together. Who would watch The Mighty Ducks that many times with someone if they didn't care about them? It was sad to see Hale walk away leaving Kenzi with Nate.
Hale was the big loser at the end of the day. He didn't get the girl, but he also lost his best friend. Dyson has continued to self-destruct. Val definitely wasn't blameless. She threw herself at Dyson and basically forced herself on him. But, Dyson is a big boy wolf. He knew he shouldn't have sex with her and he stopped, but then made a conscious decision to go forward with it.
Dyson deserved that punch. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to knock any sense into him. Since the Norn took his love, he has been on a downward spiral and destroying himself with pity. Dyson needs to stop being destructive and do something to try and get his love back. This is the Fae world, there has to be away around the Norn deal.
The second season is quickly coming to a close. Will they be able to defeat The Garuda? And, if so, at what cost? Will Dyson find a cure for his loveless heart? And, will Lauren be able to save Nadia again or is it too late? Bo is the centerpiece for all of this, how much of a toll will it take? It's sure to be a fun trip to the end.
