Lost Girl Review: Energizer SuccuBunny

by at . Comments

"ConFaegion" was by far the funniest Lost Girl episode ever. Energizer SuccuBunny, anyone?

It even topped "Original Skin," which had some hilarious moments, but it was also quite serious at times. I loved that Dyson had a callback to that episode tonight as well. I usually prefer the more serialized, arc-based episodes, but this was an exception because it was so well done. 

Vex Brings Trouble

Even though she hasn't been around, the Morrigan hadn't forgotten about the blackmail picture that Bo had on her. The Dark leader was committed to hurting Bo and sent Underfae after Underfae after her with no success. When Vex visited her, she saw an opportunity to take out Bo by restricting her powers. The bug-like creature invaded Bo's body from Vex and gave her the intelligence and maturity level of a teenager, while hampering her abilities.

And hilarity ensued! A teenage Bo was a blast and it only got better when Dyson and then Tamsin joined her in their teenage years. Her attraction to Dyson was adorable, as was his for her. I was waiting for them to start singing about being in a tree and K-I-S-S-I-N-G. That didn't happen, though Dyson did a striptease to "Hungry Like a Wolf" on the bed and then they played spin the bottle.

In a more serious moment, Bo and Tamsin shared secrets via poem with each other and promised to never reveal them. After Lauren healed them, they seemed to forget everything that they did and happened while they were teenized. We'll just have to wait and see if they eventually remember the secrets or not. There is definitely something up with Tamsin. When Bo kissed her, she was immediately curious about what type of Fae Tamsin is.

While the kids played, Lauren and Kenzi worked to fight off the pigmen that the Morrigan sent. Kenzi picked up the "Staff of Righteousness" and became "Darth Vader." She had some mad fighting skills. I could watch that scene over and over again. Too bad she had to choose between being one-handed with the powers or give it up. She made the best choice, but it would have been awesome to see her maintain those fighting abilities.

Just when Vex was starting to fit in, he decided to leave. It's a shame, he was fun to have around, even when he temporarily turned against Bo and her friends. He's a lost Fae without his powers and much less formidable. It's sad to see him go, but it will make his return all the more exciting.

There wasn't much touched upon in the big picture of the Fae world, but Hale as the new interim Ash showed his strength when he warned the Morrigan against stirring up any more trouble. He was intense and had a strong presence. He acted like a leader.

Hale: You ever pull a stunt like this again, I'll personally rip your head off and shove it up your little white ass. This detente is too important to be screwed up by some petty feud. Am I clear?
Morrigan: Crystal. | permalink

Will the Morrigan obey? Most likely not, but at least the boundaries have been set and she knows where he stands. If she causes problems. he will go after her without restraint.

The big revelation, at least for me, was that Bo and Lauren are a boring couple. When they are in bed together, they are steamy hot and without a doubt sexy. It's when they leave the bedroom that it's a problem. They clearly love each other, but that's not all that is needed to make a relationship work. Bo is a succubus and thrives on sexual energy. Her lack of healing while with Lauren is just one sign that it isn't enough.

Bo had more chemistry outside of the bedroom with both Dyson and Ryan. With both of them, there was a fire and tension that just isn't there with Lauren. And, before you say that I'm discriminating against Lauren because she's a woman, that's not it at all. Instead, I think it's a situation of the guys both being Fae and also having a bit of a bad and sarcastic side. Lauren is too nice and polite, even when she was "spy-banging" Bo.

Will Dark Bo become more prevalent due to her lack of fulfillment while with Lauren? Or, is it possible that the goodness within Lauren is what will keep her from turning Dark? I'm not sure, but it will be a fun ride to find out what will happen. Plus, Bo will eventually find out that Dyson has his love back for her. Will he become a player for her heart again?

"ConFaegion" had some of the funniest lines of the series. Check out our Lost Girl quotes section. Is your favorite there? If not, share it! Here are a couple of my favorites:

Vex: It can't be easy keeping up with Energizer SuccuBunny. | permalink

Kenzi: ... suddenly I'm Darth Vader. | permalink

Did you love this episode too? Will you miss Vex? Are Bo-Lauren missing the chemistry that Bo has had with other partners?

I like Laren and Bo's friendship! The best part of their screen time is when they are sharing as sisters! Bo is able to share her deepest parts of herself with Laren. I felt from the first encounter that it was lust driving the attraction. I don't like Lauren's character whe she appears weak and acts like a love starved teeny bopper! The whole love at first sight was sold too hard from the very beginning!

Definitely agree about Kenzi having a crush on Dyson. Dyson and Tamsin would be a fun couple, but I think he should ultimately be with Kenzi too.

@Lisa yes yes and yes! absolutely Dyson and Kenzi! It's a shame Syfy cut that scene with Vex because it was blatantly obvious she likes Dyson more than a friend. This is someone who did everything in her power for him. Bo did nothing. Every sacrifice Bo ever did was for Lauren. I like the Vex/Kenzi dynamics but this is a guy who forced a mother to kill her 3 children. people seem to forget about that because they've turned him into a comic relief character. so... no, thank you. and lauren is definitely the one for bo. you'd think someone who went to Afghanistan and had been a slave for over 5 years wouldn't be all fluffy and rainbows. she is only ever herself when she is with bo. not sure any of you watched ep 4 yet but lauren gets girlfriend of the year award. there is zero doubt they are in it for the long haul.

(continued) we don't have to see so much of Dr Dull (Lauren). I am excited to see how Vex changes when he gets back, and I laughed at his gift of a makeup brush to Kenzi...it's like they are on each others wavelength. I was also glad to see Hale taking charge, and putting the Morrigan on notice.

Blu said "It is Lauren as a character, she comes across as stiff and stoic. On a show where other characters have a bit of bite and humor she always falls flat." I am totally with Blu here, I find Lauren extremely boring, and that is NOT because she is a lesbian, because I went to college with a lot of gays and lesbians, and some of them were really sexy, and some were not at all sexy. Lauren is a cardboard character, dull and lifeless, and I believe there isn't any sexual sizzle between her and Bo, or at least enough to sustain our favorite Succubus. I have to say that I LOVED Dyson's striptease to Hungry Like the Wolf, and I adored Tamsin and Bo's bonding as teenagers. BTW, Tamsin said she is a "Valkyrie", so we do know what kind of Fae she is, we just do not know what powers a Valkyrie has in this show. I also loved Vex's chemistry with Kenzi, and I don't think that she and Dyson make a good match at all. I hope he and Bo get back together, they had great chemistry, and that way we don't have to see as much of Lauren as we have been.

I have been a Dyson/Kenzi shipper since episode 6, season 1. I was glad Vex addressed Kenzi's crush on Dyson this episode (which Syfy cut, by the way) because it has ALWAYS been obvious and I always laughed when people saw it as a sibling relationship. I don't know about you but I was never obsessed with my brother's junk. But that's just me. And I never liked Bo and Dyson together. They just lacked any kind of chemistry and depth - hell Kenzi and Dyson have more depth and they've never been more than friends! I can't wait to see more of them this season :) Also, I love Bo and Lauren together too. I don't necessarily "ship" them but I think they are cute together and their chemistry is almost as good as Dyson and Kenzi's. They make sense together and the depth is also there.

Bo and Lauren have been boring since Episode 1 but because they're both girls everybody is going to say "They have so much chemistry, they're the best, they're hot" blah blah blah. I personally loved Dyson and Bo in Season 1 but I couldn't really see them together now. I would like to see Dyson and Kenzie get together :) And have Bo fly solo for a while! Maybe hook up with fiesty Tamsin or something ;) Just a thought!
