Things are certainly heating up on Lost Girlâ€”and I donâ€™t just mean that surprise hook-up between Bo and Tamsin, although it does feel like this week’s biggest development. Rookie Blueâ€™s Noam Jenkins made his first move as a resuscitated corpse, bringing the ominous words â€œbeginning and endâ€ to screens and teasing something cataclysmic in the offing.
Considering how long things between Bo and Tamsin have remained at the casually teasing phase, I was pretty stunned to see Tamsin finally make a bold moveâ€”and, admittedly, even more surprised to see Bo, after a moment’s hesitation, opt for the second of Tamsin’s gifts. Maybe itâ€™s because their friendship has been so rocky, or maybe because I was sort of digging the banter-creating tension between them as they started working together, but Iâ€™m not entirely sure how I feel about these two launching into something that looks like more than a chi-swapping fling.
I guess that for all the hints and chemistry between the two, Iâ€™ve always assumed Lost Girl would head to some kind of resolution involving the Bo/Lauren/Dyson triangleâ€”though maybe this move is suggesting the show is considering something a bit less predictable for our loving fae and her friends. Either way, it gave Bo someone to confide in, and I canâ€™t think of anyone who would be more understanding about Boâ€™s need to separate herself from her fatherâ€™s legacy than Tamsin.
And while Iâ€™m certain that whateverâ€™s brewing with Lauren and Dysonâ€™s elevator crash case is closely tied to Boâ€™s fatherâ€”both did, after all, begin with a trip to Hell and one cryptically named candleâ€”Iâ€™m guessing that final shot of Horatio, a.k.a. the recently-deceased Kevin Brown means solving the elevator crash might take priority over that rune-covered Jack-in-a-box present from daddy dearest.
Itâ€™s certainly more pressing for the fae world now that their signaturesâ€”and powersâ€”have been taken from the safety of Trickâ€™s lair and are now being used by Kevin, and, presumably, that mysterious blonde woman responsible for his death, to hunt for whatever fae they need to take out (or collect pieces from). With the oracles now blind to any other visions, thereâ€™s no one to warn Bo and the rest about whatâ€™s coming, or what it may want from the rest of the fae.
Except maybe Dysonâ€™s new kid, Mark, if he somehow manages to get over being a ridiculous stereotype of a teenage brat in time.Â Right now it seems like heâ€™s on his way to being recruited to the Dark sideâ€”a process Dyson should probably explain to him a bit more clearly, and soon. Because while the kidâ€™s aware his new friend stole the book, he doesnâ€™t seem to have any idea what that means, or why itâ€™s important. And sure, heâ€™s dreaming Boâ€™s dream of being unaligned, but right now I donâ€™t think heâ€™s savvy enough to pull that off. Especially since Vex seems to be the only friend heâ€™s capable of making, and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out Vex is the one who orchestrated the whole hook up in the first place. Mark’s recklessness may have been cute enough for Bo last week, but it’s quickly turning into something dangerous. And if Dyson doesn’t step it up in the paternity department soon, there may be more problems than a few broken pint glasses.
And as fun as it was to watch Tamsin deal with Boâ€™s slow transformation into a kitten (note: a napkin is not a suitable cover for the sudden appearance of paws), or to at least watch Anna Silk take up residence in the soothing confines of a cardboard box, Iâ€™m still itching to make a bit more progress on what the hell (pun intended) is going on with, well, everything. Or at least see the team start to connect a couple of the dots and give us something a bit more substantial to speculate with.
Lost Girl airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Showcase.
