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?

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?

What show did you watch? Bo and Lauren have amazing chemistry together. More than any other couples combined. If in doubt, wait for episode 4.

I don't know what show you are watching, but seriously...Bo and Lauren have an international following simply because they have such great chemistry. I feel like you and I (and the thousands of others like me) are watching a different show somehow. It just simply is undeniable that others see it and feel it. It is there. Chemistry. Seriously.

ahhh best episode ever!! kenz and lauren working together was just the icing on the cake Will you miss Vex?
I am already missing him!! Are Bo-Lauren missing the chemistry that Bo has had with other partners?
Bo didn't have chemistry with other partners so.. no. bo and lauren complete each other and balance each other out. bo needs her and i have no doubt their feelings for each other will play a huge part in the dark bo plot down the road.

Thank god someone else agrees that Lauren and Bo are a boring couple. They have like no chemistry. Oh well still love the show and like the different fae they bring to it :) good funny episode.

Avatar

Hmm Bo and Lauren have much better chemistry outside the bedroom than all relationships on this show combined. Bo and Dyson had none. It's inside the bedroom that I happen to think they lack (too awkward? uncomfortable? too choreographed?) But to each their own. Kenzi shouldn't have denied that awesome gift. She totally made the episode for me! Also, I was really digging her with Vex so I hope he comes back soon
