Lost Girl Introduces Hot Lesbian Lovin’ And An Intriguing Foil When Albino Alligators Attack
By Alex Cranz
Oh SyFy/Showcase, when other channels can’t do more than a peck on the cheek between lesbians or gay men they do a full on sex scene complete with a shot that would probably get them an NC-17 rating if it were theatrically released. After deciding that they wanted to make a go of dating last week Bo and Lauren skipped straight past coffee and went for the money, because Bo is a succubus and Lauren hasn’t had any since her last girlfriend went crazy possessed by the Garuda. Because this show is all about equality (no really it is) their love scene is just as softly lit and graphic as any sex scene featuring guys.
And then Lauren disappears for the bulk of the hour–presumably to recuperate–and Bo gets drawn into Kenzi’s quest to save her hitherto unseen bud from her street living days. I hope it becomes a thing where Kenzi has these best buds who CANNOT DIE but that she never mentions until they’re relevant. Like all the grandparents on The Cosby Show.
In their hunt to find the disappeared friend they find a whole mess of sickly blind fae in a tunnel and Lost Girl’s very own immortal crocodile–a beast I thought Once Upon A Time had cornered the market on.
Lost Girl’s human/crocodile hybrid avoids massive lapels, glitter paint and the romanticizing of abusive relationships and is instead a kind of crazy and definitely ancient dude out for revenge. Also he is blind. For some reason an blind albino crocodile man just seems normal? Have I watched too much Batman and grown too accustomed to Killer Croc? I’m confused, as confused as Bo was when Croco-man pulled a catch and release on her and she found herself snuggled up safely in bed.
While the ladies dealt with this new fae issue and Lauren recuperated and Vex at around messing with his stupid little face tattoo (seriously WHAT is that thing) Dyson got topless.
I mean, uh, Dyson got a new partner. A new dark fae partner. She’s sassy, snazzy and she hates Bo with the fire of a thousand repressed lesbian tendencies. Also she played the worst version of Dinah Lance since Arrow and the atrocious Birds of Prey many moons ago. We’re gonna let that one slide though, because this is the first time someone hasn’t really been just completely labially dominated by Bo in ages and it’s nice to see someone so openly antagonized by her that isn’t a dude or evil. Tamsin COULD be evil, she is Dark Fae and all, but she really just seems more of a law abiding lady who hates Bo’s mile wide anarchic streak.
Which is on full display what with her repeatedly being arrested and repeatedly walking out with a wink and sly middle finger to establishment.
In that past Bo’s anarchic streak had been lauded because the establishment she attempted to operate in was absolutely archaic and skewed against her and “normal” folks. Now that isn’t the case. Her friend is in charge of the light fae and he’s actually making good choices. Something that surprises even Dyson. He’s so accustomed to horrible despotic acts by the Ash that he doesn’t even blink when its suggested that Hale wants him to murder the sickly fae in the tunnels.
Dyson. Bo. They’re no longer rebels fighting to protect weaker folks. They’ve won and now don’t quite know how to act in the status quo they’ve created. That makes them unpredictable and that makes them dangerous. Maybe even as dangerous as whatever is lurking in Bo’s head. It would seem she’s not aware of just how evil she’s been lately. That whatever was unlocked in her during the battle with the Garuda might not even be a part of her.
After two seasons of Bo and company battling external forces this season is undeniably about the threats from within. Bo’s the killer now, and judging from Tamsin’s file and that wall Kenzi saw, Bo’s on a very, very bloody streak.
Which means Tamsin, of all people, is kind of the good guy.
- Why was Trick so repulsed by his lady friend? She didn’t seem that bad…just amorous!.
- Tamsin’s bloody kiss was kind of lame, but I still like her. She’s got a little bit of a different energy then anyone else on the show. She’s comfortable with her “badness” but she’s lawful bad after we’ve been stuck dealing with countless chaotic bads.
- Yes that was me just getting hella Dungeons and Dragons up in here. Bo is chaotic neutral by the way.
- Vex’s face tattoo may annoy me, but him in the robe eating cereal and teasing Kenzi and Bo in bed was a lot of fun.
- I hope Hale doesn’t crumble under the pressure or get pushed aside now that he’s the big boss man. Having a smart Ash who genuinely likes the heroine is as refreshing as Tamsin genuinely hating her.
- Speaking of Bo, she’d now wickedly comfortable using her seduction powers huh? You’ve come a long way baby.
- Albino alligator fae’s accent. I…what? Oh Canada.
- Next Week: Bo and company deal with spin the bottle and disease and maybe a little light body switching.
