Lost Girl Review: Is Bo the Wanderer?

at . Comments

"Fae-ge Against the Machine" was an unusual episode of Lost Girl - and, with this show, that's saying a lot. 

From the moment Bo left the restaurant with Tamsin until about the time she got drunk, I wasn't sure what the heck was going on. It was a confusing scavenger hunt of sorts that she didn't even know she was on. Was she fulfilling her promise to Balzac? And how did that tie in with what Trick was doing?

Then, all of a sudden, it was as if the fog lifted and the sun began shining. There was a point to this game and it was potentially a life-or-death situation.

Bo's Scavenger Hunt

Tamsin decided to accompany Bo on her journey to complete her obligation to Balzac. When the Valkyrie first showed up as Dyson's partner, she was almost unbearable. Since her last adventure with Bo to save Kenzi, she has become likable and integrated herself into the group in a positive way. Both Bo and Tamsin are strong and independent and complement each other with their knowledge and strengths.

When it comes to the Fae world, this partnership sped to the top of my favorites. There's an amazing tension between these two that is palpable. Bo fed from Tamsin when they were saving Kenzi and commented that it was unlike anyone she's had before. And, after completing the task and killing the "cricket," they shared a kiss. Neither of them expected it and it only happened because Trick touched the game while kissing, but there was a spark there. 

Could the love triangle become a love quadrangle? Now that Bo knows that Dyson has his love back, she certainly doesn't need another romantic entanglement. Given the "Wanderer" card, I believe that there is something greater at play between Tamsin and Bo. And, based on Tamsin's reaction, it's not a good thing.

Even though, Bo missed Lauren's big event and left with the scientist, they should be able to overcome this minor set-back. It's not like Bo purposefully skipped out on Lauren, instead she basically was compelled to do it. With the Dawning upon her, Bo's going to need Lauren's love and support. 

Bo survived the game and received the invitation to the Temple. Next up, the real challenge. Will Bo make it through alive and unscathed?

Odds and Ends

  • I usually miss Kenzi when she's gone. Given the set up of this episode and Tamsin's role, the story didn't need her presence so her absence wasn't as pronounced as in some previous episodes.
  • Why was Tamsin the only one being honest with Bo about the dangers of the Dawning?
  • Elderberry Smash: Don't buy that drink for Bo.
  • Why is a lock of Valkyrie hair so valuable? What can it do?
  • Lauren looked absolutely gorgeous in that dress.
  • How did Bo find out that Dyson got his love back? My Lost Girl pet peeve. Again, an important reveal happened off-screen. (Will Lauren and Bo even discuss the missed awards ceremony? Or, will that be another fight/make up that happens off-screen?)
  • "The Wanderer": What or who is this? What's the importance? 
  • Valkyrie is from Norse mythology and so is Odin the Wanderer. In the myth, the Valkyrie maidens complied with Odin's wishes. Could this mean that Tamsin will end up submissive to Bo?

Are you disappointed we didn't get to see Bo find out about Dyson getting his love back? Is Bo "the Wanderer?" Are you enjoying the Dawning storyline?

Hello to my friends out there I am testifying about the good work of a man who helps me has been hell since the day my husband left me I am a woman with two children of my problem raised when the father of my children never help traveling he was living, but about two weeks since I got my eye on my husband tries to call me but did not take my call a few weeks he calls me tells me he has found love somewhere easy at first I need to be serous but one day after he arrived at the house to collect his things, that was the time I realize that things go wrong it will help, but the things that went wrong that day needed to talk to someone about it, so i went to his friend, but there was no help, so I let him month later I met online a man called PROPHET ROBSON on a sorcerer who never believe this, but I needed my man back, so the sorcerer gave me trouble at first did not trust him to i was doing to make love, but after three days my husband called me telling me that her return home but I still do not think until six days, the father of my children came to the house to ask me to give my love to him the work with told myself from that day I was happy with my family thanks to the care of PROPHET ROBSON

Greetings to every body that is reading this testimony
Me and my boyfriend were seriously in love for six years and we were planning to get married but one day he came to my house and told me he was no longer interested in our relationship simply because he was dating another rich lady who promise to buy him a car and to sponsor their wedding. And i suffer heartbreak for seven months and i was not tired of loving him.so i take a bold step by contacting a spell caster who help me bring my ex boyfriend back. he is powerful and great his contact is Kumalovespell@gmail.com you can also contact him for help


An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is harry, i live in USA,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife, with a kid. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife. so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce. she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore. So she packed out of my house and made me and my child passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail. and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife. So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited prophetjakula@gmail.com


"Why is a lock of Valkyrie hair so valuable? What can it do?" Having seen Tamsin loose a lock after using her power on Dyson (episode 6), I presume that it allows one to wield a similar power. Do not doubt me, just yourself :)


I'm with Mel, I'd love a spin-off series with Dyson and Kenzi and Hale and Vex and some of the other characters who don't get a lot of screen time.
And I agree with the reviewer that the off-screen thing sucks, because I really wanted to see Dyson and Bo have a moment together when she learned that he had his love back! Bo also needs to realize that she has to feed off of fae, because she can't be monogamous and live, and just getting sexual chi from boring old Lauren isn't satisfying for her. I think she should take Dyson and Tamsin to bed and feed off both of them! Oh, and I loved the Tarot cards aspect of this ep, and I am thrilled that Lost Girl has been renewed for another season! YAY! I love this show! I also hope Trick finally has a girlfriend!


Good. Weird. I agree about the offscreen exposition.

The show has been picked up for season 4 both in Canada and on Syfy in the US. It will be another 13 episode season.


Hey and Jessica is Bo's dad really Odin liked you said before or this putting it out there


Hey okay so I don't know much but one day I was scrolling through channels saw this fell in love and got the previous episodes from Netflix.... I really would hate if this got cancelled and I think it would be mote interesting if Bo's father was Odin andbif Bo and Tamsin had a thing... Please answer if you believe they will have a thing because it is kinda lame to put that kiss in to tease us right?


Final piece--Sorry this forum truncated the message, oh well. (continued)... everything in his power to help her... As far as I remember Trick also knows of Bo's father, but has declined to talk of him so far. Which makes me think he may've once even knew him... The Odin or Father/Dad ideas might pan out, but I don't think this is it unless it will have something to do with Bo's Dawning--her having to meet and confront him successfully, maybe even for the sake of her biological mother.
