Kenzi: “You were with me every second that I was away, and that’s never going to change, because you are my sister from another mister.”
“Rise” is the March 21 series finale of “Lost Girl.” Warning: this article does contain spoilers. It’s been a great ride, “Lost Girl.” Thanks for all the good times. “Lost Girl” aired on Syfy, and you can rewatch it from the beginning on Netflix.
This was a rough final season. It could have been so much better, but it did have its good moments. The same can be said for the finale. We had good moments like Kenzi’s unwavering support in Bo, and then we had the rough moments as well.
It felt rushed. Bo was tricking Jack. Jack broke Bo. Bo returned to her normal self and fought Jack. Then, there was the fact that at times, we were unsure whether or not Bo was tricking Jack or if she was under his spell. As far as a final showdown went, Bo’s and Jack’s was lame.
Jack was a great villain though because he could not be tricked. He was the ultimate big bad. The problem was not with Jack but with how Bo and the gang tried to defeat him. Admittedly, the fact that Trick’s blood, his love, was the thing that undid Jack was a nice moment.
Let’s talk final send offs. Tamsin’s was heartbreaking. It was funny watching Kenzi try to help Tamsin give birth, but things soon turned sad. We knew that Tamsin was on her final life, so it wasn’t all that shocking that she died. Personally, her dying in battle would have been better, but her line about how a Valkyrie on her last life rises was a great moment.
Kenzi drove off with Dagny, Tamsin’s daughter, to raise her in the human world. Honestly, her being raised in the fae world makes more sense and would have been more entertaining, but perhaps there was a concern that people would know who Dagny’s dad is and would try to kill her. Should Dagny’s have been raised with the fae?
Another issue is that this meant Kenzi lived away from the fae, away from Bo. We know that Dagny was growing at an accelerated rate, but we don’t know how much time elapsed. It just doesn’t feel right that Kenzi would stay away from Bo for all that time. They are family.
Dagny is basically reliving Bo’s life, which shows that honestly Bo just stalled Hades’ master plan. Hades isn’t gone. He’s still there, so all of that was for nothing. We basically have to go through the whole thing over again but with Dagny. Couldn’t we have given Bo a clear victory to end the series off with?
Dagny is a Valkyrie. While the implication was that she was going to kill her girlfriend in the car like Bo did, it just doesn’t make sense. Bo lost control of her succubus powers (that manifested that night). How was Dagny going to kill the girl? This parallel just did not work, and honestly, it would have been better if we ended the season with Dagny as a baby.
Then, there was the Lauren and Bo reunion. While it’s great that those two lovebirds are working it out, Lauren basically agreed to give it another shot because she realized that once she dies, Bo will have Dyson. Does that seem weird to anyone else? This was not a good enough reason for them to reunite.
Lauren will still grow old and die while Bo stays young. Another concern Lauren voiced was that she lost herself in Bo, so did Lauren fix that problem? This seemed like a rushed solution to get to please fans. It would have been better if Bo and Lauren had never broken up this season in the first place. What are your thoughts on this?
