Lost Girl Review: Blood Bond
The Garuda versus Bo and her blood united team was the mission in the season 2 finale of Lost Girl, "Flesh and Blood." The Garuda didn't stand a chance, though the battle was not without some close calls.
While I never expected any of the core team to be at risk, I was surprised everyone made it out alive. As soon as Hale's sister showed up, I thought she would be the sacrificial goner. Instead, there were a few close calls with Vex breaking his arm, Kenzi getting nearly sliced in half and Trick being posessed by the Garuda.
But they all survived.
The revelation from the Garuda fight was the manifestation of Bo's blood power and a "Dark Bo." It was heartening to see that Bo was concerned about turning into her mother. She went to great lengths to make sure that didn't happen.
When Bo made Kenzi promise to kill her if she was overtaken with power was one of the most heartbreaking moments on Lost Girl. The bond between Bo and Kenzi is as strong as any two people can be to each other. It was because of that that Kenzi agreed to do the unthinkable -- kill Bo.
Even when Kenzi was near death, her first concern was keeping her promise to Bo. She kept up her end of the deal, even though Bo broke it out of the love for Trick. Though, in that moment, Bo was fine; it wasn't until later that she started to turn dark.
While Kenzi broke the blood bond between the team, the darkness didn't entirely leave Bo. The end was scary. How much has Bo turned? Will she be able to control it? Or, is she destined to turn dark?
Bo wasn't the only one changed. Kenzi is undergoing a transformation herself due to the black goop that got on her at the Norn's. Will she become permanently Fae-infected? She's had so many close calls that it wouldn't be unexpected. Is it possible for a human to become a Fae? Or, gain Fae powers?
When Lost Girl returns for season 3, will we get the Bo and Kenzi that we love back? Or, will they be taken to the dark side? We will have to wait until January to find out. It will also be months before we find out how Bo will react to Dyson having his love back.
At this point, Bo is passionately in love with Lauren. Their kiss -- wow! But, Dyson was correct that if Lauren wants to get out from under the Ash's control, now is the time to do it. I expect that Lauren would find that price too high. She loves Bo and if she has to stay with the Ash to remain with Bo, she'll do it.
Besides, now that Dyson has his love back, he offered that option to Lauren to free the path to Bo. It's intriguing that he hasn't told Bo yet. Did he wait because he didn't want to create a distraction during their Garuda fight? Is he afraid of her response? Does he see she is happy with Lauren and doesn't want to disrupt that? His intentions have been unclear.
Whenever Bo finds out, it will be a moment to watch. Will she jump into his arms? Or, will she remain faithful to Lauren? As you see there are lots of questions about Bo and her loves and those are answers we will have to wait for season 3 to get.
Were you happy with the finale? What do you want to see happen next season?
