Season 3 of Lost Girl kicked off last night on ShowCase, and the fun continues from the end of Season 2. Bo and her scooby gang had kicked the Garuda’s butt, with only minor casualties — Dyson’s ex gf and Lauren’s gf, leaving the love triangle of Bo / Dyson / Lauren back in play. Bo knows Trick is her grandfather, their whole gang knows Trick is the Blood King, and it’s one big happy family. Except Kenzi has some sort of fae rash on her arm that is out of control, and Bo is a bit extra-sparky in her eyes with some sort of bonus power from having killed the Garuda and embraced her inner warrior. I watched Lost Girl Confaedential before the season premiere where Jay Firestone (as executive producer) had the actors who play Bo, Dyson, Lauren, Kenzi, Hale and Trick all sit around the table and talk about their experiences playing the characters, etc. It was basically what you get at Comic-Con type fan fares, and it worked okay. The big personal reveal is that Anna Silk is pregnant, so who knows what that will mean for shooting near the end of schedules. I have no idea how she’ll keep an 80 hour workweek going when her role is so physically demanding, but who knows.
The new episode opens three weeks later and apparently “Bo” has not been a good little succubus. She’s running wild and Dyson is chasing her. She even feeds in public! It doesn’t take much to figure out she’s undercover, but Hale as the (Acting) Ash was a bit of a surprise — I thought it was possible, but unlikely. Anyway, a female Fae prison is run by Amazons and is corrupt, so Bo is undercover to investigate the death of a doctor friend of Lauren’s. An interesting place, given that they are all Fae but without powers (a special stone lets the guards counteract the loss of power). The rest of the episode is pretty linear, except for a crying game ending, and then just when you think Bo is playing at being dark, she feeds off someone without warning and dumps the body. What the ? Oh, I’m going to like the new year, I think. Faux Bo and all.
