With a war brewing between the Fae and the Garuda sacrifices were made in "Truth and Consequences." There were heartbreaking decisions, but ultimately our beloved characters made the right choices.
In order to win the Fae-Garuda war, the players realized that working together was paramount. Bo's decision to dagger The Glaive was instantaneous, but she knew that they couldn't afford to have a high ranking Fae working with the enemy. And, while she thought that The Glaive had a second heart, she couldn't have known for sure.
With the capture of The Glaive, Bo also proved her loyalty to Lachlan in the fight against The Garuda. The side was further strengthened by Hale's decision to call for a parley between Trick and Lachlan. Fortunately (for now), Hale's slip of the tongue revealed Trick's true identity of The Blood King to Lauchlan.
Lauchlan went from discounting his meeting with a barkeep to kneeling before Trick. A pleasant shift to witness. With The Ash and The Blood King teamed up against The Garuda, they are much stronger. Hale made an important decision to bring them together instead of working with each of them separately.
While those decisions did not pull at the heart strings, the other two hurt to watch. Ever since Nadia awakened from her coma, she has not been normal. Her initial clinginess made sense, but her anger and snooping was well beyond human. We finally got confirmation of what was assumed, Nadia was possessed by The Garuda.
Possessed-Nadia's knife attack on Lauren did not make much sense in the big picture. Why would The Garuda want Lauren dead? Or, perhaps it was just a reaction to the anger generated by The Garuda. Ultimately, the only way to save Nadia was to kill her. While painful, Bo did the correct thing by stabbing her. Nadia confirmed that by saying, "Thank you" with her dying breath.
Bo's immediate departure from the situation was a bit surprising. Will Lauren understand why Bo did it? Or, will Nadia continue to be a block between them? I could see it going either way. Lauren is going to need support to get over Nadia's death and she loves Bo; this situation could draw them closer than ever or push them apart.
The other heartbreaking decision came from Kenzi. I have not been been a fan of Nate and was surprised he stayed with Kenzi after she sabotaged his recording contract, but he stuck with her.
She loved him, but had to make a choice between her boyfriend and her best friend. A lose-lose situation.
Kenzi would probably have been happy if she ran off with Nate. They could have gotten married, had kids and a normal non-Fae infested life, but there would have been a unfillable hole in her heart. Kenzi made the only decision she could by staying with Bo. They have a connection that is much more than a romantic love -- family.
Kenzi chose a dangerous path, but it was what she had to do. She never would have forgive herself if something happened to Bo and she was not there. Regardless of whether Kenzi helps or hurts Bo in her fight against The Garuda, they will stand firm together. Their love for each other is stronger than anything, while Kenzi is sure to find romance again.
This was the episode I have been waiting all season to see. There was solidarity in the fight against The Garuda and it was not without sacrifice. The team is stronger now than ever. The only improvement would be if Dyson returned on his motorcycle to add his strength to the mix. But, only if he is over his angst.
