Remember when I said I thought Bo’s new boy toy was douchey? Yep. I still think that. Boinking your little Fae brain out is all fun and good, but when you decide this whole “no rules” thing is better than the whole having a moral compass thing it’s the opposite of fun and good. And that’s all I have to say about that.
AFTERELLEN BAIT (What enticement did the episode use to reel in gay lady viewers?)
So Kenzi (and the delightful, delightful Ksenia Solo) is back. And the Morrigan (and the yummy, yummy Emmanuelle Vaugier) is back. Heck, even Leena (and the lovely, lovely Genelle Williams) from Warehouse 13 showed up to make lesbian fandoms collide. Plus Bo is, well, Bo and her epic, epic cleavage never went anywhere. Now if only some doctor lady with really, really Hotpants was back, we’d have all the bait we could handle. Guess that’ll have to wait until next week.
FEELINGS, FEELINGS, FEELINGS! (Did the episode give you a lot of feelings?)
OK, let’s talk about the threesome. Let’s really, really talk about the threesome. Because as much as I love it when two ladies make out (and I love, love it when two ladies make out), how and why they make out makes a difference. And this, this was not the kind of two ladies making out that I love. This was the two ladies making out for a dude. And that, that is not the kind of show I thought Lost Girl was.
The great thing about Bo as a character has always been that her sexuality is her own. She’s sexy, she owns it. She’s into boys and girls, she owns it. But what she has never been is about selling out to the male gaze. But this little “present” from Ryan and then making out in front of him together for him? This is not the show I signed up for. The only saving grace is that I think this whole tawdry display was meant to show us how out-of-character Bo has become thanks to Ryan. Let’s just hope she realizes it soon, too.
DOCCUBUS ACTION (Exactly how hot were those pants this week?)
Another week without Lauren and another week without sunshine and rainbows and warm puppy kisses. Metaphorically.
ACTION ACTION (So what the Fae actually happened, and did Bo kick its ass?)
So, a mystical force that steals people’s vitality, making healthy vibrant people into old, wrinkled shadows of themselves? Where have I seen this before? Wait, is this that Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode where Buffy runs off to L.A. and is working as a waitress and uncovers a demon cult that’s stealing street kids and forcing them into slavery and then returning their old worn-out bodies to the streets? No? OK then, this has to be the Warehouse 13 episode where the agents uncover a photographer using Man Ray’s camera to steal beautiful model’s youth and sell it to rich women? Wait, also no? Oh, this is the Lost Girl episode that mashes those up where a Fae sister act suck out the youth of backpackers and sell it to rich women at a day spa. Got it.
Hey, was I the only one it took forever and a day to figure out who the older sister guest star was? I think it was Genelle’s slicked back hair. It threw me off and I didn’t recognize her as our friendly Warehouse 13 innkeeper. Though, the good news from this episode is we’re one step closer to having a Lost Girl/Jaime Murray connection. Because Bo getting succu-facey with H.G. Wells would be a thing of beauty and a joy forever.
KENZISM OF THE WEEK (What makes her just the Kenziest Kenzi ever?)
I like to show and not tell sometimes. And, oh, what a show.
BOOBS O’CLOCK O’ THE WEEK (Because you can’t spell “Boobs” without “Bo.”)
There the ladies are. How we missed you last week.
