Well, it’s finally here, a new season of Lost Girl.
Bo walks into an alley and is confronted by two men. She takes them on with a bag of all things and leaves them lying on the ground. She then walks up to a line of men waiting to get into a bar, sucks essence from the bouncer and then throws money from her bag at the crowd. Bo is then chased into Trick’s bar by Dyson, who wants to know if there is any fae law that she hasn’t broken in the last three weeks. Kenzi attempts to intervene but Vex uses his power to stop her. Dyson slams Bo on the table and handcuffs her. Bo makes a quip about begging for sanctuary and Trick tells her that he is not going to fall for that again and doesn’t know who she is. Yeah, I smell a set up.
Bo is taken to a lockup where her possessions including a watch and a pocket rocket are taken. She is then forced to shower and is led down the prison block to a cell. Her cellmate is Sylvie and she claims to be nervous and admits that she is in prison because she stole some bread to feed her family. Bo of course makes a reference to Les Misérables. Would it really have been that hard to come up with a realistic crime and still have Sylvie be sympathetic? Sylvie then hands her a stack of letters that she wrote to her mother, which apparently have been returned unanswered. Bo asks, “what’s the deal with the feminazi’s?” Really, in 2013 we’re still using that hateful term to apply to strong women, on a show apparently about a strong woman. Sylvie says that the guards are all Amazons and apparently not only do they not like men, they refuse to take orders from men. Once every few years, the Amazons search out men to mate with and then abandon any male babies in the woods to their fate.
Their conversation is interrupted when Bo is led away for work detail. Surprise, surprise, Bo is taken to the medical lab, where Lauren is in charge. As soon as they are alone, it’s clear that it’s a scam. Lauren has coated herself in some noxious product to pass as fae. Bo’s mission it seems is to go undercover to deal with “sadistic man hating Berthas.” Lauren is also concerned that her mentor is missing. They banter back and forth about whether or not they are in a relationship, until they are interrupted by the warden. Despite Lauren’s suggestion that she needs Bo, the warden reassigns her.
At the bar, Kenzi is freaking out firm in the belief that the plan they have concocted is not going to work. Kenzi marches up to Hale and tells him that he needs to fix this because he is the Ashe now. Considering Hale’s limited role in previous seasons, I cannot help but think that this is nothing more than a promotion to obscurity. Kenzi says that she didn’t like the plan but went along with it anyway and now she is concerned that Bo has no one to act as backup but Lauren. Trick tries to reassure her about Lauren’s resourcefulness. Hale reminds Kenzi that he is only the acting Ashe and explains that does not want to go up the line to get one of the female elders to intervene. Trick suggests that this is the perfect opportunity for Hale to make a name for himself.
Kenzi looks down at the prison plans and learns that it is built on ley lines, which means that Bo has been stripped of her powers. Dyson assures her that everything is going to be fine because Lauren slipped Bo a stone, which will allow access to her powers. Apparently, all of the Amazons carry these stones, which is information that Trick is not happy that Hale revealed. Trick then reminds Hale that he is has to be careful about what information he gives out as the acting Ashe. Dyson calls Kenzi over and says that Bo can handle herself.
Back at the prison, Bo is scrubbing the floor on her hands and knees and is scantily clad. The warden goes into her office where she is confronted by another Amazon, who wants to know how long she is going to keep up with her ongoing activities. The warden says that she does what she has to, to keep the Amazons strong.
