LOST GIRL – Season 5 Episode 15 – SPOILERS
Tamsin, caged by Hades,
and doomed by her pregnancy
Dyson, who as recently as Episode 5.5 has said that he hates cats, watched as his son Mark shifted for the first time into a panther. Kenzi got to ride the last of the unicorns (which had been rescued by the Dark Fae after his horn was chopped off by poachers). Remember that the first episode of Season 5 begins with Bo climbing a crag singing “She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes”? The six white horses in that song turn up, and seem very glad to see Bo. When the horseshoe forget by Hephaestus turns out to be too large for a fire breathing horse, Bo deduces that she is The Pyrippus, at least metaphorically.
Dyson, hater of cats, confronts Mark after he shifts into panther form
This episode co-incidentally aired on SyFy right in the middle of the (quite justified) uproar about Lexa‘s death on THE 100, Tamsin endures some pretty rough treatment. After being impregnated against her will, she is kidnapped and imprisoned by her rapist (Hades), who also clips her wings. Then we are told that she will die in childbirth (Valkyries always do), becoming the
138th 143rd 148th lesbian or bisexual television character to be killed off. (See list on Autostraddle.)
Kenzi, who has no experience with horses, finally gets to ride a unicorn
Tipped off by Vex, who survived having his throat slashed in the previous episode, Bo visits Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) in an attempt to locate Lou Ann Heidinger (played by Marie Ward), the midwife who rescued her from Tartarus when she was an infant. We learn that the former Morrigan has given up on Lauren as a source of a cure for her involuntary humanity, and has launched a campaign to raise money to cure her “disease”. Evony looks too good to be human, and not at all ill. She may have somehow managed to turn herself Fae again and just isn’t telling anyone.
Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) – possibly cured and pretending to be human?
Explaining why she, in the past, had wanted Bo killed, Evony tells her: “When I couldn’t figure out what made you tick, I wanted you dead. What else do you do with a weird mole? Burn it off.”
Turns out that after Trick saved Lou Ann from execution, Evony found her and hid her away, figuring she might someday be useful. She put the former midwife in charge of the Dark Fae horses.
