Lost Girl: I Fought the Fae (and the Fae Won) Review:
Out with the old, and in with the new.
By Tyler Olson
Still recovering from last weeks bad news from Dyson, Bo decides to go skimpy or go home. Refusing to give up, she put on her most revealing clothes and tried her best to bring Dyson back for a bit more doggy love. It is really sad to see that this may actually be the end of their relationship. I am sure it didn't help that she left so many people in a happy unconsciousness earlier on. This likely means that Bo is stuck to resorting to more take-out, finding a new sucker, or going on a suicidal rampage and try to kill the Norn.
The main story this episode was much brighter thankfully, even when it tried to be depressing. A woman on death row and her secret lover refusing to see her before she dies should have been sad, but thanks to Bo's indefatigable attitude, there always seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel, even after the light was snuffed out.
We learnt a lot more about the Fae during this episode too.
First, the Light Fae leaders are named after trees while the Dark Fae are named after dead warriors. After Bo comments that all their rituals involving killing, and they aren't really very different, the Blackthorn admits that they may need to be re-branded. Perhaps Hippie Fae or Woodland Fae would be more accurate. It was cute how he called Bo an obnoxious vegan in comparison to their habits.
We also learnt that the Light Fae's leadership is decided in a cross between democracy and barbarism. The Ash is chosen by a hunt, which takes place with the three most voted for candidates, who typically kissed voters hands and gave their babies a good firm shake. The voting seemed so unsecured and so easily tampered with that I am sure if Kenzi was there, she would have been dragged out after getting caught moving stones to Hale's, only after Hale's was overflowing.
Hale is actually Baronett William Haley Francois Santiago, who is actually of noble blood. It is a bit surprising that someone from a powerful family would actually become a dog's sidekick. Kenzi was a thief, and she got a Succubus, but instead he is stuck smelling like wet dog after he finishes cleaning up Dyson's Feral behaviour. I am sure that since he was in the final running for the Ash, he will be getting a bit more attention from the other Fae, and hopefully we will learn more about him in the process.
Since it seems that the Blackthorn knows a lot more about Bo and Trick, I am sure that he will return again. Since the new Ash is an ass and already has it out for Bo, he may have to return soon to call another election. I can't see this new one surviving for too long.
There was no word of the great evil that was coming for Bo during this episode. I am guessing she didn't even mention it to anyone yet, which is a bit disappointing. Does the new ass of Ash have anything to do it with it? Probably, but he just doesn't seem like a great evil, and just more of an annoyance that will slow everyone down at actually protecting people.
Even with the lack of great evil, this episode was still fun. Hopefully, now that the Dyson no longer loves Bo story is past us, we will stop seeing the teenage breakup drama that has been overused in these past few episodes.
