LOST GIRL – Season 5 Episode 2 – SPOILERS
STACEY: Valhalla’s books are still unbalanced.
TAMSIN: So are my boobs, but I make do.
Some speculation in the previous post was incorrect. Evony is no longer the Morrigan, despite the medical clinic bearing her name. And disappointingly, The Leviathan has not returned.
Bo takes the elevator to the Tartarus sub-basement, where she encounters Puca (Alex Appel), who takes a bite out of her leg. Then Persephone (Hannah Anderson) shows up and Bo heals herself with Persephone sex.
QUANTUM SEXUAL ENTANGLEMENT — Lauren, who is napping, has sex with an unidentified spirit at the same time that Bo is doing Persephone. Later in the episode, Lauren tells Bo that the ghost had some of Bo’s patented moves. This incident calls to mind the bit in Fae-ge Against the Machine where Trick and Stella share a kiss and Tamsin, far away in Brazenwood, is inspired to spontaneously kiss Bo at the same time.
Persephone is the wife of Hades and, as it turns out, Bo’s stepmother. So Vex was correct (early in Season 4) when he described The Pyrippus as a boogeyman made up to frighten children. Odin is The Wanderer, and Odin (the Norse version of Zeus) is the brother of Hades and married to Hera, Hades sister. His assistance may have been obtained in Hades’ quest for Bo. Anyway, Bo’s dad is Hades, which is kind of cool, because a 1998 article by Margaret Matthews, titled IS XENA’S FATHER A GOD? YES! IS IT ARES? NO!, developed a quite well thought out theory that Hades was Xena’s father. Bo offers to help Persephone escape from the underworld, but after it is explained that she can’t do that for another few millenia, Bo takes Persephone’s moon candle, and uses it to light the path home.
Earlier in the story, Lauren and Dyson dig up Kenzi. They revive her at the clinic, and Dyson returns to the gates of Valhalla to prevent them from closing and trapping Bo inside. Lauren and Kenzi discover that they have been followed by a spirit which writes ‘help’ on a steamed up glass pane, making them think it is Bo. One wonders why, since it turns out not to be Bo, it writes ‘help’ on the glass.
Kenzi and Lauren trying to deal with a ghost is funny but the best part of this episode is Stacey (Kate Corbett), the Valkyrie bully from Tamsin’s school days. She and Dyson have chemistry. What does one call this ship? Dycey? Dyson is free now, because Tamsin and he have declared themselves to be nothing more than friends.
Kenzi is off to Spain to live a Fae-free life, because Hale left her some land.
Home alone, Bo removes boards from a living room window and lights the moon candle, causing a lawyer in an elevator somewhere to become a vehicle for a beast from hell. The lawyer, played by Amanda Walsh, when she’s holding that candle, looks more than a bit like Celesta from Xena: Warrior Princess.
When Kenzi tried to make the ghost she thought was Bo visible, she gave it physical form. Later, when it attacks Lauren at the Dal, Kenzi shoots it. The ghost seems to have been Japanese, setting up the next episode, “Big in Japan”.
