Recap of last night’s season finale of Lost Girl – Flesh and Blood
Synopsis: Concerned that Bo’s plan is too risky, Trick offers Bo one more weapon for her own, and everyone else’s, safety. Bo must lead her friends into battle ahead of schedule when her hand is forced by their enemy. A revelation from Dyson provides Bo with ammunition, but another’s deceit threatens the mission. Prophecies come true… but at what cost?
So, I am kind of ambivalent about last night’s episode. Yes, the storyline revolving around the Garuda was wrapped up with a tiny, shiny red Bo-w.
Let’s go over what I liked:
The relationship, friendship or whatever it is between Kenzi and Hale was thrust to the forefront as Kenzi’s life was at stake. There is a genuine bond, if it is just sidekicks uniting under the duress of potential catastrophic quests or just two individuals slowly becoming more than just friends… it is truly a joy to watch these two be there for one another.
When Kenzi was sliced, the pain and worry in Hale’s face said it all.
Vex is the foil to everything that the Good guys attempt to do. Yet, he does it in such a way that you end up liking him. Yes, he can be annoying, but that is part of his charm. He gives scenes a comedic twist when it needs it the most, just as Kenzi does day in, day out.
The little double-entendres exchanged between Vex and everyone had me laughing, but it was that moment when he realized that he indeed had to join in the fray to assist in the slaying of the Garuda that had me cheering him on.
By the way, Bo had ample chances to inject the Garuda (especially when Dyson had him by the throat). Why wait it out? This leads me to what I did not like…
The Garuda storyline left me wanting a bigger, splashier finale.
What we got, was the backstory of when everything first went to pot. That moment when Trick’s right hand man signed the death warrant of Trick’s wife and thus propelling the fae world into such a bad luck streak that it is still has not recovered.
The backstory of Trick was interesting, but it could have been conveyed in a different medium or just by these two men talking and forcing Trick to realize that everything has been somewhat his fault. It felt drawn out and the re-enactment was a bit too much.
Then there is the “Who will Bo choose?” scenario. She made her choice, Lauren, but Dyson is not giving up without a fight. This is what the fans love, but in hindsight… the most fun we had over the past season was when she was with Ryan. That is what I want to see, Bo having fun, even if it leads to insane moments. There is some joy in watching her contend with someone that matches her in almost every way. Both Lauren and Dyson are a bit too emotionally heavy, even though I will love seeing these two try to outmatch one another as they vie for Bo’s attention.
One of the major highlights from last night was that we will indeed have a third season and it will be coming to us in January.
That makes us wonder about what will come in the third season, well there are five obvious story arcs:
- 1. Bo is still housing a little bit of the corrupt essence within her. How that affects her day-to-day job as a private investigator, protector of the fae world and her relationships is yet to be scene, but I’m sure it will be interesting.
- 2. Kenzi and the nasty mosquito bite that she picked up at the Norn. Is it evil? Will it too corrupt Kenzi?
- 3. Trick’s quest to make amends for what had happened to his beloved Isabeau.
- 4. Lauren vs. Bo, it’s on.
- 5. The new Ash.
It should be a fun season.
