Bo: “What happens when you hold on for too long?”
Lauren: “I explode into confetti. It’s actually quite spectacular. You wanna see?”
“Judgement Fae” is the February 22 episode of “Lost Girl.” Warning: this article does contain spoilers. “Lost Girl” airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. CT on Syfy.
Someone exploding into confetti would have made this hour a lot more entertaining. Overall, it was a let down and had some drama that came out of nowhere and seemed unnecessary. Sadly, the final season isn’t turning out to be all that awesome.
Where to start? Let’s go with Doccubus. This poor ship went through so much, and it all happened rather quickly. First, Lauren realized that she was dying from the serum, but before we can start to really process that, she took the antidote. Okay, human Lauren again, let’s think about what this means for her and Bo…oh, wait they just broke up.
We really should have spent some time mulling things over. Lauren made a lot of huge decisions rather quickly. Breaking up with Bo was a big deal, and somehow Lauren did it so quickly because she lost herself in her and Bo, which you can kind of understand because at least we’ve seen how Lauren was as the conduit.
There was one kind of good thing about the break up. Lauren’s reasons were that not only is Bo super important, but she is too. Often times it seems like couples on TV break up because one of them is super important to a particular case and the other person doesn’t want to be a distraction. Lauren’s a valuable human in the fae world. She’s a healer, and thankfully, Lauren recognized that Bo’s not the only one that the fae world needs.
Going back to the conduit issue, what was the point in putting Lauren through all that? Was it just to break her and Bo up or did it somehow further a plot by Hades that we still haven’t quite put together yet? Was it just so Lauren could have her “wait I wanna be fae” moment?
Lauren being the conduit might have happened to give us, the viewers, a better sense of what a conduit is in the fae world. Why? Well because it looks like Bo might be a conduit or something for Hades. Right now it’s the only possible explanation for whatever happened at the end with Tamsin and Bo/Jack. Seriously, what was that weird face swap moment that was going on?
It looked like Jack somehow possessed Bo, which in this case is a relief because otherwise Bo was a huge jerk who disregarded Tamsin’s feelings. The real Bo would never proposition and kiss Tamsin like that, especially since Bo knows how much Tamsin loves her. There was definitely yelling going on when Bo kissed Tamsin.
Jack’s mission seems to be to destroy all of Bo’s relationships. He worked with and encouraged Lauren to take the serum, which led to the end of Lauren’s relationship with Bo. Now, Jack’s moved on to sabotaging Bo’s relationship with Tamsin.
Jack wants her all by herself because maybe then Bo will turn to him and join his side. She already cried in his arms over Lauren, which seemed really odd. Bo went from yelling at him to hugging him to storming out. A lot was going on, and yes, he’s her father, but it’s not like Bo has known him her entire life and just now found out that he was Hades. There’s no excuse for the hug and sob fest that happened.
On to the next shipper drama – Dyson’s relationship with Alicia has been boring and annoying since the beginning. It was obvious that they would develop feelings for each other, and then we would have to endure the awkward and painful fallout whenever Kevin, Alicia’s husband, woke up. Why can’t Dyson just be happy?
Hera and Zeus came back basically to leave again. Their presence was pointless. It was hard to really understand what Hera’s goal was whenever he stormed in on Bo and Zeus and Hephaestus. First, he was angry at Zeus. Then, he decided to kill Bo, but oh wait, him and Hera actually decided to go back to Myth. Okay, bye?
Well, at least Bo got a horseshoe out of it all, and some more cryptic warnings about Hades. Zeus, if you are going to go through all the trouble of possessing Lauren to get across a message to Bo, make it at least useful! She told Bo that Hades’ evil comes in all shapes and sizes. This was a tip that didn’t give Bo any help whatsoever.
What did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy the test that Bo went through? Honestly the only interesting part about it was that it revealed Bo’s inner justice, which is kinda cool. Leave your thoughts in a comment below.
