Synopsis: Bo and Kenzie go undercover in the Shady Grove to investigate a gated community when a babysitter asks for their help to determine what happened to her employer. Meanwhile, Lauren makes a difficult, and potentially dangerous, choice.
My recap: This episode harkened back to the beginning of the series, where Bo and Kenzi take on a case that came to them via one of their old flyers. The case revolved around a coven of bitter housewives, who used magic to off those that pissed them off, be it husbands or annoying neighbors. How they killed people was via a fae that has been dead for a while, but via magic is used as a vessel for their evil deeds.
This storyline opened Bo up to the power that is in her, her daddy issues and her “break” from Lauren.
Which brings me to Lauren, we found out that she is actually on the lam and someone is willing to give her a fresh start and it is not Bo. She leaves the Ash necklace and her cell on her desk and she walks away from this life. Shocking!!!! We always considered her Bo’s doormat, but apparently she gets it… Bo’s new post-dawning fae life will always take precedent over love. The question is, will she be back when the chips are down for Bo? Bets anyone?
While this is all going on, Dyson and Tamsin catch a break on the case that pointed a finger at Bo for a series of fae murders that had been plaguing the town. They go to a field and after some digging, find a slew of murdered fae. One of the bodies match the fingerprints on one of the decedants in the dark fae’s original case. Dun, dun, dunnnnnn… Of course, we caught sight of something keeping an eye on the investigation…
Btw, did you notice that Tamsin was not looking too hot in the episode? Is waiting for the inevitable really taking such a toll on her?
Overall, this was a fun episode that not only gave us back the fun of watching Kenzi and Bo working a case, but gave us more insight on charcters like Lauren and Hale. These are the episodes that build the mythos of this universe and they should keep doing it.
Next time: After an attack at the Dal one of the group member’s life is left hanging in the balance. Meanwhile, the Morrigan attempts to instigate a Light/Dark Fae clash with Kenzi and Hale caught in the middle.
