After last week's mind-blowing season premiere, this week's episode felt a tad more normal... if you consider a mini-me, a dab from love potion number 9, torture, and other dimensions normal that is. Are the writers taking some sort of drug to think up all the craziness for this season or something?
We knew Tamsin was going to be returning, but did anyone expect her to be so adorably annoying? Sure, Tamsin was a bit immature, but now even looks the part. I don't understand why Kenzi didn't just show her how to restart her entertainment, besides so we can constantly hear "again..." repeatedly throughout the scene. I can't believe a character so troublesome could have been so fun to watch.
Just as entertaining as baby Tam-Tam was the insight into a certain former Ash's love life. I think fans have been waiting a very, very long time for Hale and Kenzi to be official, and it sounds like it is imminent... unless something very bad happens. Too bad everyone was a tad busy with other problems, and Hale was "blessed" with a dab of a love potion... There's always next week, right?
Hale wasn't the only one who finally expressed his love, though, but Dyson will have to wait a bit longer for his love to finally know how he feels. With Bo's great escape, and Clio's darker motives, it will probably be a few weeks before everything settles down a bit so they can talk.
I can't believe this is the first time Trick ventured out of his tavern and into Bo and Kenzi's shack. With the number of unwelcome guests they have had, his remark about the security of the place is almost spot on. Seriously, there is so little on the walls that I'm surprised they haven't had a group just jumped through them during an attack... yet. I'm sure if anyone knew of the goodies they have in that place it would have been cleaned out by thieves ages ago.
But what about our Bo? For the star of the series, she hasn't had much of a role in these first two episodes of the season. I love how this is giving the other characters more time to shine, but is anyone else missing the seduction and face sucking? (Sorry, that train attendant doesn't count.) Where is the Wanderer anyway?
So far I am loving this fourth season of Lost Girl. I hope that we continue to get more serialized episodes like Sleeping Beauty School and less of the more procedural episodes that we have received in the past; the story and characters have never been presented better!
