We discuss things that didn’t happened but we think should have as part of our 30 Days of Lost Girl series in which we answer a bunch of questions about Lost Girl. Tell us what you wish would haven’t happened bud didn’t in the comments!
In these bits of conversation left over from our episode about The Dark Fae, we discuss some minor Dark Fae characters as well as another example of Light Fae exploiting humans similarly to how Dark Fae often have. We also discuss Bo’s position as the unaligned succubus in the Light/Dark system a bit more and the concept of Light and Dark territories as well as clans.
While Lost Girl has provided very refreshing portrayals of queer characters, it unfortunately has fallen into the same pattern as many sci-fi/fantasy shows in regards to its representation of non-white characters. We discuss how non-white characters have been portrayed on Lost Girl, including how Hale’s storyline has been treated as well as the show’s use of the human/Fae divide as a metaphor to talk about race.
Bo must confront the effects of her and Rainer’s alliance which released a hell beast, but first she has to deal with Massimo who has kidnapped Lauren to bait Bo. Dyson, Tamsin, and Trick try to hold off the hell beast’s undead army in the meantime, and Kenzi realizes that she might, in fact, have a role to play in the fight.
When Massimo steals the furniture from the clubhouse because of Kenzi’s debt, Bo must return to Lauren’s apartment for an herb to pay him, and she discovers some surprising things. While he tries to find Lauren, Dyson babysits Tamsin, who is going through some changes. Meanwhile, Lauren deals with her captors, who have an interesting request.
The newest addition to the Lost Girl gang, Tamsin is brash, callous, and ambiguous in her loyalties much like the hardboiled detectives of noir crime dramas. We talk about how Tamsin compares to noir detectives like Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, including how Tamsin acts as a foil to other characters and her burgeoning redemption story arc.
Bo has many facets to her personality that make her an interesting, compelling character, including her protectiveness, her resistance to rules and binaries, and her nerdiness. We discuss these characteristics and more, and we delve into Dark Bo/Super Bo’s powers as well as her evolving relationship with her human friends.
