Remember that dreadful situation when everyone swapped bodies and Kenzi was Dyson? This episode was very similar, only 500 times better!
I didn't really care for the out-of-body experience last season, so I was very glad that this episode's role reversal was of a completely different kind. Normally Bo, Dyson and Tamsin are all business while Lauren, and most definitely Kenzi and Vex are more playful, so it was refreshing to see them with opposite roles.
First the funny! Adults playing goofy teenage versions of themselves are often sad to watch, but Anna, Kris and Rachel all did a fantastic job. The teenage crushes, girl talk, spin-the-bottle, and especially the dancing were all very well done and captured what I would expect those characters to be like. I especially loved Dyson dancing to Duran Duran's Hungry Like a Wolf.
It wasn't all fun and games for the rest though. Kenzi may have just proved that she needs a Fae weapon so she can fight beside Bo full-time. She was absolutely amazing with her magical stick! She fought against the odds with grace, style and kick-ass moves that only Kenzi could pull off. Plus, what an outfit!
It was also great to see Lauren back into her serious doctor role. So far this season she's mainly become Bo's play-thing, which didn't lead to much character growth. Perhaps she will find her place in this scooby-gang yet.
Vex was another story. I really don't know what to make of him. One moment he is becoming Kenzi's BFF, then he's double-crossing everyone only to chase after pigs with an axe shortly afterwards. Ever since he's lost his powers Vex hasn't been the same. I enjoyed him as a puppeteer, so hopefully when he returns from his walkabout he will return to his powerful self, only not evil. Perhaps he can be the one that will bring Bo back from the dark, if she ever gets there.
'ConFaegion' was by far the funniest episode of Lost Girl I have ever seen and yet it remained action-packed. Sure, it didn't move the seasonal story arc much, but it didn't need to; it was awesome all on its own.
