So much happened in the latest episode of Lost Girl that it is a lot to rap your head around.
First, Kenzi and Nate are back after being on the road. They learn about Bo’s new boy toy – Ryan – and a sweet reunion takes place between the pseudo-sisters once the boys are out of the way. And, they make arrangements for – of all things – a double date.
Second, Dyson is in trouble at work because of his attitude change – he is in free fall now that Ciara has left him – getting himself suspended; but thank God for his partner Hale who went to bat for him with their captain (guest star David Richmond Peck). But standing up for his partner could land Hale in as much trouble as Dyson. He better be careful or things could go from bad to worse in short order.
Third, strange occurrences are happening to twentysomething backpackers, who age overnight after visiting a local clinic that offers instant money for those needing extra cash. The case first lands on Hale’s desk at the precinct, but soon ends up in Bo’s hands after Trick determines that the wounds found on the neck of one of the victims was made by a Dark Fae. A Dark Fae who usually is harmless and non-threatening; but that is obviously not the case, at least where these occurrences are concerned.
Meanwhile, the double date takes place at a pricey restaurant for which Ryan is not only well-known by the hostess but also the only one out of the quartet who could even afford to eat there. On top of that, Ryan rubs Kenzi the wrong way by pre-ordering their meal and – although meaning well – insults Nate for performing at such small venues.
The double date is then cut short by a phone call that pulls Bo back into the case with a new lead – a lead that takes her to the clinic in question. After visiting through the front door and basically getting shut down, Bo decides to make a second visit through the back door, which winds up putting her life in jeopardy because of the sisters – Hessa (guest star Genelle Williams) and Lana (guest star Lynette Greenwood) – who run the clinic.
Bo finds out the sisters are draining the youthful essence of the twentysomethings with their Dark Fae powers and selling that essence as an anti-aging treatment to high-paying clients. Of course, Bo expects them to stop but is knocked out by Hessa and wakes up tied to the same chairs where the humans were drained. Lana is forced by older sister Hessa to drain Bo; but Ryan shows up in time to rescue her. Unfortunately, he sides with the sisters when it comes to helping the human victims; but Bo is able to convince Lana to stand up to her sister, ending their business for good.
The one “good” (if you can even call it that) thing that came out of the rather disastrous double date was Ryan trying to do something for Nate’s career – but that “good” thing was putting Nate on the radar of The Morrigan (recurring guest star Emmanuelle Vaugier). As soon as she shows up at the restaurant to meet Nate, she offers him all he could hope for (since she specializes in making big careers for talented musicians only to use their fame and talent as her main food supply); but Kenzi knows exactly who The Morrigan is and doesn’t want Nate to end up as her next meal. So, in order to rescue him, Kenzi strikes a bargain with The Morrigan that could have terrible ramifications: owing The Morrigan a favor for which she can collect at any future time she wishes. “Yikes” doesn’t even begin to cover it.
On top of that Ryan, who is Dark Fae, seems to be having an effect on Bo that could lead to even more ramifications if the episode ending three-way between Bo, Ryan and the hostess from the pricey restaurant is any indication of what is to follow.
“Table for Fae” is the 15th episode of the second season of Lost Girl. The next new episode of Lost Girl will air on the Canadian channel Showcase on Sunday, February 12 at 9 PM. The show is being pre-empted on February 5 (just FYI).
