Lost Girl: Recap of Lachlan’s Gambit
We gave an overview of the season on the latest Last Bite podcast, so we are going to proceed with recaps on this site for the remainder of the season.
As you are well aware of, we are heading to the end of this season and it seems like all bets are off as Bo comes to the realization that she indeed is the only one that can combat the Garuda.
But, I am skipping ahead of myself.
The Garuda is not holding back anymore and he sent in his berserkers to get his hands on the “Blood King” a.k.a. Trick. But with Bo, Hale, Kenzi and of all people… Ciara to head them off, there really was no need to to worry.
Then Lachlan sends in his men to get Trick and during Trick and Lachlan’s discussion, we come to learn that the key to combat the Garuda is Trick’s blood, but if they use it… they would have to contend with a more wicked creature. Apparently, in this universe, there is always a repercussion for every action and it never is never a happy one.
While this is happening, Dyson showsup and he now believes that he is destined to take down the Garuda. Bo, is all wiling to let everyone deal with the Garuda because in reality she is not ready to confront the Garuda, no less take him down.By this time, they’ve become worried that Trick has not returned, so they get him back from Lachlan.
There are moments of tenderness between Ciara and Dyson and Lauren and Bo and it is because they know they may not make it through the battle with the Garuda. Eventually, the battle takes place and we lose Ciara (who sacrificed her life to save Bo from the blade of the Garuda)
and Lachlan (or so we think). I have to admit that Ciara’s death was unfortunate, but necessary because it showed us that Dyson does indeed have the capacity to love. After her passing, Dyson stays behind to take down the berserkers as Hale takes Bo to safety. If you are wondering about Kenzi, she initially followed Hale and Bo, but she double-backed to help Dyson. But, all she did was drag his battered and beaten body to safety. When Bo sees Kenzi pushing Dyson’s body that is the moment that she realizes that she is alone in this battle.
In the next episode: Into the Dark
In the wake of emotional losses, Trick reveals his deepest secret to Bo. Bo realizes there is no turning back and she must go to any extreme, which includes aligning herself with a sworn enemy, to take on a battle that could decide the fate of the Fae.
Let me tell you that there is a big reveal in the 1st 5 minutes of the next episode and it changes everything, but it starts clicking everything into place. So, you better watch it. Oh! And Vex will be in the episode.
