I guess I was wrong about Bo and Lauren still being together. If they did break up, I totally missed it. But then, the writing this whole season doesn't seem to be very cohesive. Like, why is Trick suddenly acting like a bad guy?

Was Trick acting bad or just talking with the Morrigan?

I'm still unclear why Trick erased Raynor from history, (it was Raynor, right? It wasn't the Wanderer, was it?) and how did the Wanderer get to be Bo's dad if he's a demon in hell? (They did say he was Bo's daddy last night, right?)

Speaking of not being cohesive, wasn't it season 1 where we learned Fae and Humans don't get married to each other without bad things happening? If so, why could Hale marry Kenzi?

Speaking of Bo and Kenzi, why was Kenzi on one side of the funeral aisle and Bo/Tamsin on the other last night? Are you telling me that enough Dark Fae attended that they rated the left side of the service?

I'm guessing the sword in his torso is an indication that he couldn't. In that case, that was the most consistent thing about the last couple of eisodes.

Alas I was out of town and missed last week's ep. I did see the "death" scene on youtube, but didn't know until last night that the human druid was the guy who killed him.

If Hale died because of Kenzi, why did the human druid "get" to do the deed?

That one I can't help you with. I'm still kinda the noob here...

Well, how about: "Kenzi is indirectly responsible because she's the reason the druid could survive Hale's attack on him."

Re: Lost Girl season 4

Yeah, this whole Raynor storyline still isn't working for me. Apparently Rainer isn't the bad guy, there's some other guy/thing who is the bad guy and is also Bo's dad. As for why Rainer was erased from history, I think it was something to do with him rebelling against Trick while he was the Blood King. It might also relate to the prophecy about his return bring about Bo's dad's arrival. I'm not sure.
As for Trick and Evony, I don't think it was that he was "acting like a bad guy", it's just that the new threat, aka Bo's daddy, is such a big threat that they are willing to cooperate.
I've been a huge fan of the show from the beginning, but even I'm having trouble following this season's storyline. It really hasn't been a great season overall.
I do agree that Lauren turning Evony human was kind of random. Then there's the whole reveal with Massimo being her son, who was raised by Vex. WTF!

I was talking about the whole season. Trick hasn't been acting like a friend or mentor to the rest of the cast this year. He's been acting alienated and secretive and sketchy all season, and it's unclear why.

Re: Lost Girl season 4

In the season finale, Kenzie will find Hale alive in the shower-- because it's all been a dream. That's the only way to explain everything.

I know I missed an ep here and there, but I never really understood why Bo fell so hard for Raynor, nor did I understand why she was so standoffish with Lauren after nearly jumping her bones at the Morrigan's big party and after Lauren worked with her on the case of the missing Vex and with Dyson on the case of the missing Bo.

Still its sad to see Lauren and Dyson in a better place by the penultimate ep than Bo & Lauren.
I'm getting the sense that no one understands why Bo fell for Raynor. Not the characters and certainly not the fans.

(And is anyone else just getting confused as hell by that name? I am because "Raynor" is so similar to "Reynard," the body-swapping insane anarchist murderer in "Original Skin.")

I figured Bo was standoffish with Lauren because Lauren was standoffish with her, which Lauren has often been. Honestly, I've really had a hard time seeing the chemistry between Bo & Lauren. I understood the original spark of attraction between them back in Season 1 but I just think that they're too different to be romantically compatible. I think that Lauren is looking for someone a bit more settled & domestic. That isn't Bo at all.

IMO, it doesn't help that Zoie Palmer has more on screen chemistry with Kris Holden-Reid than she does with Anna Silk.

As for that OTHER couple, Lauren & the Morrigan, TBC shouldn't hold out much hope.
I know. I'm just saying it's a major missed opportunity. Had I been writing this season, I would have put a lot more emphasis on Lauren & the Morrigan, given Tamsin WAY more development, and maybe developed some kind of Bo/Dyson/Kenzi love triangle (or better yet, a Crystal/Lauren/Bo/Dyson/Kenzi/Hale DAISY CHAIN OF DOOM!!!!!! (TM)).

I know, don't think, just "enjoy the ride", but there isn't much to enjoy when there's "no" Bo and Lauren, not much Bo & Dyson or Bo & Tamsin and certainly NO Bo & Kenzi!
Agreed. They're making my favorite show very tough to love right now.

Agreed. It doesn't make sense. And it's also not working. Trick works great as the stern or avuncular grandfatherly figure. But when they try to explore his dark side, it just feels forced. Some of the most poorly written & acted moments of the entire series were when we got the flashbacks to when he was the Blood King during the last great Fae war between light & dark in "Flesh & Blood."

Would it help any to know that it's actually spelled "Rainer"?

I think the actresses have good chemistry -- though in a more gentle and sweet way than the sultry chemistry that Anna Silk has with Rachel Skarsten. And it's Bo and Lauren's contrasts that make their relationship interesting.

I'm not talking about their "break" last season, which I remember perfectly well. I'm talking about "Let the Dark Times Roll" from this season, the episode where Bo was very happy to be reunited with Lauren and telling everyone who'd listen that she was right about the "break" being temporary. They did get back together in that episode -- but what I missed was that they more decisively broke up at the end of it. I thought there was just some renewed tension over Lauren's Dark loyalties but that it didn't affect their restored relationship. Evidently, though, it was meant to be a breakup rather than just an argument. But if so, that was conveyed very vaguely.

Re: Lost Girl season 4

This is why, after watching the 1st two seasons, I said that I didn't really want Team Lauren or Team Dyson. I wanted to be on Team Kenzi.

Posted 7 months ago... so no actual "spoilers" for the finale. Except... maybe why Tamsin tastes happy now.

It also explains why this season has felt so off, since we haven't had enough of "this" in season 4.

Re: Lost Girl season 4

Yeah, and that reached its crisis point in the last episode, so that's something else they need to fix-- next season if not in this season finale.

I hadn't really noticed, but thinking back I realize now that you're right.

Re: Lost Girl season 4

Just 2... no make that three things.

1) I officially have no idea what went on this season.

2) I agree with the final WTF title card after the credits ran tonight.

3) I really preferred the season 3 finale of XENA Warrior Princess: Sacrifice II ( and I assume the season 4 premiere of same) to this LG 4 re-imaging.

Re: Lost Girl season 4

Yeah, this whole season was incoherent. I couldn't figure out what was going on half the time. It's like they skipped over a bunch of episodes or scenes within episodes that would've told us what was going on.

Like the whole Rainer thing. I didn't understand what the deal was with him, and I hoped it was building to something that would make it clear, but instead they just killed him off and I never understood why he was there in the first place. And the identity and motives of the Big Bad this season were never clear, since he's just been this offscreen gray eminence and there was nobody to actually confront except this Massimo, who I never quite figured out and who was never very impressive as an antagonist (and what was with him suddenly doing a Gollum impression in that scene with Lauren?). And what books were they researching that led Kenzi to become convinced she had to sacrifice herself? That just came out of nowhere. Everything plot-related this season has just been so vague and telegraphic.

And that final battle against the zombie horde was awful in execution. For some reason, these vicious revenants supposedly attacking the heroes were actually just shambling around in the background and half-heartedly wrestling with each other, so that the main characters could just stand around having long conversations in the middle of a battlefield, and Kenzi could just walk through the whole thing and step into the portal and scuttle the villain's plans without any of the villain's minions making the slightest attempt to stop her. It was laughably incompetent and robbed the scene of any trace of drama or impact.

I don't even know why I'm still watching the show at this point. It doesn't even have the same level of sex appeal it used to -- there's more talking about sex than actually showing it. I think the only time Anna Silk took off her clothes this whole season was in the flashback episode where she was really Dyson. Here, when Bo and Tamsin were talking about how Bo needed to heal and recharge before the battle, I thought that was a setup for a love scene between them, and in earlier seasons it would've been; but here Bo just sucked some chi from Tamsin without even touching her (making Dyson's subtle jealous reaction when she told him afterward seem incongruous). I could live with the writing being bad if the show were at least trashy enough to be entertaining, but it doesn't even have that going for it now. I still like the cast, but they're being given nothing to work with.
