Lauren’s Light Fae pendant has always been an important symbol on Lost Girl for Lauren’s servitude to The Ash. However, she left the Fae and took off the pendant in Season 3 and has not worn it since. Season 4 introduced another significant necklace, a gift from Lauren to Bo. We discuss how Bo’s necklace serves as an interesting counterpoint to Lauren’s necklace as well as talk about a couple other meaningful necklaces on the show.
Lauren’s Light Fae Pendant
- Symbol of her indentured servitude
- Chooses to put it on but she is manipulated both times
- Bo pulls it off her (and then throws it back at her) in “Vexed”
- Lauren takes it off and throws it at Lachlan in “Can’t See the Fae-rest”
- Lauren re-swears herself to the Light in “Masks”
- Lauren takes it off when she leaves with Taft in “Adventures in Fae-bysitting”
- Bo finds the discarded necklace in “Hail, Hale”
- What has happened to the necklace, we wonder.
Bo’s Labrys Necklace
- Bo finds it in “Turn to Stone” (Sorry, it wasn’t an engagement ring, Annie) with the note “For giving me the freedom to love and I do”
- Interesting counterpoint to Lauren’s Light Fae pendant, which symbolized captivity
- Bo chooses to put on Lauren’s necklace, presumably as a symbolic gesture that she still loves her
- Compliment to Lauren telling Bo freely, “I’m yours”?
- Copies of the necklace are available for purchase with all proceeds benefiting the Because I Am a Girl initiative
- Labrys: double-headed axe symbolic of lesbianism and women’s strength and power within the Wiccan/goddess movement
Other Significant Necklaces
- Kenzi is wearing Bo’s symbol as a necklace in “The Ceremony”
- Bo has Kenzi’s engagement ring on a chain in “Dark Horse”
