LOST GIRL – Season 3 Episode 13 – SPOILERS
LAUREN: Did you know that my name isn’t even Lauren?
BO: Whoever you are, I know you. And I love you.
This is a busy episode, as though the writers realized at the last moment that the season was ending and rushed to position the characters for next year. A lot of things happen that are only vaguely connected, and much is left unsettled.
At the start, Bo takes the wounded Tamsin back to her place and, since her healing powers are on the fritz, calls on the kitsune for help. (Bo met them while rescuing Kenzi from one of their fellow fox fae in Episode #41.) Amanda (Allison Dawn Doiron) and Kasey (Sidney Leeder), who are clearly valley kitsune, manage to get the bullet out of Tamsin, but while doing so, they discover that Tamsin is dying of old age. (That’s why her hair is falling out). Then Bo and Tamsin go see Masimo the Druid for a concoction of valkyrie hormones to speed Tamsin’s recovery. They then arrange to be captured by Taft.
The mad scientist (Shawn Doyle) has been explaining his backstory to Lauren in hopes of gaining her cooperation. Seems that, when Taft was a child, his brother was beheaded by a wendigo, and that drove him over the edge and set him on a quest to blend human and Fae DNA. Lauren tells Taft what he wants to hear, but she has already set a plan in motion to defeat him.
After Lauren operates, Taft believes the marrow transplant has made him half wolf. Instead he has become half cabbitt, making him a tasty meal for Dyson.
OTHER STUFF THAT HAPPENS
Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) is seen in the full wolf form for only the second time in the series. The first time was in Episode #3 (O Kappa, My Kappa).
Bruce (Rob Archer), the Morrigan’s hired muscle, turns out to be a well-educated, poetry-quoting charmer who is fond of Kenzie. The two of them take off for parts unknown in the Morrigan’s car, with Kenzie saying mysteriously: “Where we’re going we don’t need roads.” (Next season, when Kenzi inevitably screws up her budding relationship with Hale by dealing with Masimo the Druid for Fae powers, maybe Bruce will have a chance. Kenzi could do worse.) Kenzie’s foot fetish (see episode #22) manifests again as she compliments Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) on her shoes.
Tamsin and Bo have a great fight scene. The valkyrie’s internal conflicts have her bordering on madness here, and that makes Tamsin look quite a bit like Hudson Leick‘s Callisto in Xena: Warrior Princess. Tamsin’s unfortunate Chevy pickup truck is demolished. One of the bumper stickers on the rear reads “You like to tailgate/I like to shoot people/Everyone has their thing.” The second bumper sticker is even more dreadful. Apparently Tamsin is something of a redneck. Since Rachel Skarsten will be back for Season 4, they pretty much have to give her a new ride.
Bo (Anna Silk) disappears in a puff of black smoke. (Trick was snatched from the Dál at the end of Season 2 in much the same way by the Garuda.)
Suneetha the Cabbitt (Julie Brar) is eaten by Aife. This after learning (in episode #12) that her husband is dead, and having Lauren swipe some of her DNA. (Cabbitts are a cross between a cat and a rabbitt. They are quick like a bunny and have a proclivity for reproduction. It is not clear what traits a cabbitt inherits from the feline side of the family.)
Hale lets Trick out of the car trunk where he’d been since episode 12. A rusted-out 1957 Pontiac is shown prominently as the two walk through a parking lot. Not to read too much into this, but this shot may be intended to foreshadow a coming threat from Hale and Trick’s past.
Aife (Inga Cadrenel)’s change from being wounded and slightly addled to an intensely feral succubus in a matter of seconds was so completely unexpected and so well done it is the only truly frightening moment
in any LOST GIRL episode.
QUESTION: How did The Wanderer announce himself before 1961 when Dion released that song?
Allison Dawn Doiron will be Jenny in the film AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSOR, due to be released on 10 May in the US. It stars Parker Posey, and is about an advertising executive who wakes up in hospital speaking entirely in slogans.
Sidney Leeder (Kasey) will be Lara in the 2014 science fiction film DEBUG, which is about 6 computer hackers sent to work on a derelict space freighter. They encounter an artificial intelligence with a deadly determination to become human. The film is written and directed by David Hewlett (Dr. Rodney McKay in the Stargate universe).
