Well one thing is for sure: you cannot be expected to understand much more from this episode.
Let's see if I can recap episode 2 for you in some coherent manner...
After a brief (and kind of unnecessary) plea from Trick (Rick Howland) as he asks Bo (Anna Silk) to come home, Dyson (Kris-Holden Reid) pulls up on his motorcycle at the season 3 finale crash site and finds...
Dyson drags the kid to Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) Manor... and the pair realize that the child is, in fact, Tamsin. (Rachel Skarsten).
|You're shitting me, right?|
Cut to Doctor Lauren/Waitress Amber (Zoie Palmer) in the cafeteria... Chatting to - oh! It's only Bomb Girls' Ali Liebert!
Meanwhile, Dyson and Kenzi are still pondering over what to do with baby Tam Tam. Trick tells them a valkyrie's memory comes back slowly, so this could take a while. Of course, because nothing is ever easy on this show.
Trick reveals all about what happened last week with Aoife (Bo's Mother), and Kenzi whips out the compass she stole in last week's episode.
|Trick: Always the pessimist.|
BUT, we are about to find out where she is... Kind of.
|Oh, Anna. That broken glass frames your face so elegantly.|
Trick gives us some more info about those darned Una Mens, who are apparently interviewing a bunch of Fae to figure out why the world (and by "the world", I mean Toronto) is in such a mess.
And one of those Fae is Vex. (Paul Amos.)
As Vex is tied naked to a slab, the Una Mens question him about the apparent death of The Morrigan. He tells them she's alive... but they shouldn't kill him because he can give them "her." (You should also note that the weird bitches make him eat part of their skin, too. Yum.)
|Kinda stalker-ish, don't you think?|
Back in the real world, Hale (KC Collins) and Dyson head out to a, seemingly normal, salon. And then look who shows up.
|Yes, that blouse belonged to Shakespeare in 1585.|
|No! Not the fairy dust!|
Over at Astrid's place, she explains that the Hindi on Hale's hand cannot help. Why? Because apparently Cleo doesn't want them to find Eddy. What?
|I did not sign up for this.|
Back in the loft, look what little Tam finds.
|And still we are no closer to finding out what these cards mean.|
Over to waitress Amber, who has found a 'missing persons' ad in the newspaper, including this terrible artist's impression of Bo.
|This is the best you could do?|
Crystal notes that Lauren clearly has never waited a table in her life. True.
|No please, continue.|
Oh, look, Dyson has found Eddy. (As you can see I'm not really caring so much because Crystal has caught me off-guard.)
|Mr. Wolf Man shows his anger. As usual.|
Aaaand he's awake!
Here's your quick Bo fix for the episode, because she's barely in it once again:
|Just me or does Bo go for the ladies more often than the men?|
Eddy, Dyson and Hale are on the hunt.
|Help. Too much testosterone.|
However, Dyson does give Hale a kick up the arse, and tells him he needs to suck it up and tell Kenzi how he feels. (True.)
What the hell is this?
1) Gross dude pervs on Lauren.
2) Crystal tells her not to think too much of it.
3) Gross dude chokes on breakfast.
4) Lauren SLICES HIS THROAT OPEN.
5) She identifies which Fae he is and dislodges something from his throat.
7) ...Crystal got the whole thing on video. Oops.
|That escalated quickly.|
Anyway, Hale realizes Kenzi is only so readily jumping into bed (or on the kitchen table) with him because of the perfume. What perfume? That part escaped my mind too. They stop kissing because baby Tamsin screams from the other room.
Plus side? Maybe if she keeps growing she'll grow into Rachel Skarsten sometime soon...
While this is all happening, Dyson finds some weird device near a train track.
|Just looks like a vintage gas pump to me...|
She explains that she can commune with all the four elements and that she is actually now Eddy. What? I'm sure we'll find out at some point... Maybe.
|(I have nothing witty to say. I just thought this was a great shot.)|
She explains that they need to get the next train and they'll need a ticket... And Dyson thinks he actually has one!
|Unexplained card to the rescue!|
At the same time however, Vex seems to have made a call to Cleo, who has somehow convinced her to bring Bo to him once she finds her. (It's his payment to the Una Mens in return for his life, if you'd forgotten.)
Cleo gives Dyson her "blood oath" that she will find Bo, which only makes Dyson suspicious. Why is she so eager all of a sudden?
|This all looks like some deeply depressing princess movie.|
In the diner, Lauren and Crystal are drinking what looks like tequila shots. She roots through Crystal's purse to look for that damn video of the weird throat-y Fae and Crystal catches her. Lauren explains the situation and Crystal duly deletes the video.
And finally I realize what should be endgame here. My current Lost Girl ships are as follows: Lauren/Crystal, Kenzi/Hale, Dyson/Cleo... and Bo/Tamsin. YES.
To end the episode, we see Bo. Finally. Who has sucked just enough energy from the help to escape the death train.
Did you prefer this episode to last week's? What do you think season 4 is missing so far? Let us know in the comments!
