Lost Girl - Season 2
Bo faces personal challenges with Dyson after she found out in Blood Lines that he had lied to her about knowing who her birth mother was and that he had been Trick's undercover agent, then later about his lost feelings of passion for her; and with Lauren when their relationship becomes complicated after The Morrigan informed Bo in "It's Better to Burn Out Than Fae Away" that Lauren had a girlfriend. At the same time that she is coping with these turmoils, a villainous and evil ancient enemy of the Fae, the Garuda, is awakened and reappears with the intent to destroy the truce between Light and Dark Fae, and reignite the Great War between them. The new Ash, Lachlan, recruits Bo to be his champion in the battle against the Garuda and she agrees on the condition that he regard her as a partner, not as his servant. Bo learns in Into the Dark that she is not only Trick's maternal granddaughter, but deduces that she has inherited some of his Blood Sage powers: if her blood comes into contact with someone's open wound, it can enslave and bind the recipient to her will (the same power that her mother, Aife, used to create male slaves). She uses her blood power to unite her team in the final battle against the Garuda.

Showcase announced in a July 7, 2011, press release that the Season Two premiere would be on September 4, 2011, and that an additional nine episodes had been ordered to make the season a total of 22 episodes. The order for more episodes was made public two weeks before the first appearance of Lost Girl cast and producers at San Diego Comic-Con International 2011.
The new season gets off to a bang as the Succubus finds herself navigating a web of seduction between Dyson, Lauren, and a Dark Fae she just can't resist. And now there's a new Ash in town with his own agenda for Bo. Throw in some shocking revelations by Trick, a new boy toy for Kenzi, a Fae-devouring beast with fiery wings, and it's enough to make any girl head straight for the spa.
Lauren is in a difficult position. Her comatose girlfriend awoke like nothing had happened in all the years she was unconscious and Lauren has hidden the truth about that time from her. Unfortunately, both are pretending to to other that everything is fine and that does not bode well for a continued, successful partnership.
Flashbacks were one thing that Lost Girl never had that much of. Even though not every show needs flashback, they were a welcome addition for this season. With lost memories and demons from the past resurfacing, flashbacks were very necessary; however, problems arose when some of these flashbacks blatantly contradicted each other.
If I talked about everything wrong with this season, I could be here for hours. Those were the biggest good and bad moments of this season. For a more complete feel ,check out my episode recaps, but to sum up, here are some final bullets of what this season did well, and what was just . . . you know.
perfect! exaclly what i thought of this season, only 2 things first the kenzi dyson kiss which never should have happened(incest between main characters is weird did we 4get dexter) probably was a warning that this season is being written by writers who dont know the characters and have never seen the show and second HIMYM finale was awesome
During the hours discussion we managed to quiz the actors a little more about their characters, but were not allowed to ask any questions that would promise to spoil the season one finale or the season two opener.
The Lauren relationship is one that I know in Episode 8 which aired a couple weeks ago Lauren was being dishonest with Bo and that has changed their relationship for now. It definitely continues to evolve as the season goes on but also in Season Two.
Dyson's ritual of returning to the scene of his and Tamsin's car crash finally pays off when he finds a feral-looking little girl with blonde hair rustling around in the bushes. My immediate thought: "Is this Tamsin reborn?" Sure enough, it's TamTam -- in the form of a precocious, knife-throwing kid with a short attention span and a penchant for mischief. She doesn't remember everything but mentions Bo's father. Since Valkyries deal in souls and see so much death, they often repress bad memories, so Tamsin may know where Bo is, but something's keeping her from remembering.
If you were bummed by a lack of Lauren in the season premiere, there's a lot more of the good doc this week. She's still a redhead, working at the diner, and going by "Amber." We meet her boss, Crystal, played by the amazing Ali Liebert, and as thrilled as I am to see Liebert on "Lost Girl," I'm immediately suspicious. Is she a friend? A spy? A potential love interest?
The search for Endemian brings Dyson and Hale to Selene's, a salon owned by Endemian's ex-girlfriend. While Dyson uses his animal magnetism to gain some intel, Hale searches the salon's computer -- and surprise! Cleo (Mia Kirshner) is back among the Fae! Cleo tells Hale that someone named Astrid can help, writes something in Hindi on his hand, and POOF, she's gone.
Obviously it reminded me immediately of Buffy, particularly because it has the same structure of each episode being its own procedural of sorts and the entire season dedicated to one Big Bad, and then the Kenzie/Willow parallel (especially if Kenzie gets powers next season) and, perhaps, even a Tam-Tam/Faith parallel? A Giles/Trick parallel? I could go on.
As a queer lady, I think all women on television should date and fuck other women, exclusively. Yup. Every single female character on television would be a better character, in my opinion, if they were gay. I will root for the girl-on-girl hookup over the girl-on-boy hookup any day of the week.

Everybody and their mothers (and by that I mean straight folks and especially my very own mother) want bi women to date male partners. Based on their own heteronormative expectations and the lack of understanding of (1)same-gender attraction and (2)fluid sexualities, they treat relationships and the actual date partners/lovers/girlfriends/wives noticeably different. And noticeably less serious.
Speaking of Doctor Who, Riese what did you think of inter-species lesbian couple Madam Vastra and Jenny this season? Most DW fans are dying for them to get their own spin-off with Strax. I hope it happens for them because they are adorable.
I used the language I find apt to the show and I loved the show. I raved about it and pushed for everyone I knew to watch it for the incredibly progressive views on sex, openness, and both bisexual and lesbian relations. I adored it and it made me sick to my stomach the day my partner I am watched the opening of season three.
But yeah, Season 3 of Lost Girl sagged a bit. I rejoiced that Bo and Lauren made it official, but the rest of the season felt off for most of the time. (And the finale was frustrating to say the least)
I also want to recommend the following blog for Lost Girl recaps. The author is in the TV/movie industry, but also a huge nerd, and digs pretty deep. The recap of the season three finale was particularly eye-opening: -girl-season-3-episode-13-those-who-wander/
I used to love this show so much until season 3. They completely wasted and undermined Lauren, turned Bo into a completely unlikable ditz wihout a single redeeming feature, and just crammed Tamsin down my neck until I was fit to burst. The charm is gone.
Regina offers Snow White a deal; if the Princess declares Regina the rightful ruler of the kingdom, the Queen will allow her, Charming, and the dwarves to live peacefully on Charming's former farm. Snow White equates the "deal" to exile. Regina responds by reasoning that, instead of trying to kill Snow White, her focus should be taking everything that was once supposed to be Snow White's. Charming reacts to this statement, fighting against his bonds. Regina tells Snow White to get down on her knees and swear on her father's grave that the kingdom belongs to Regina. When Snow White asks what will happen if she doesn't, the Queen responds, "then someone will pay the price." She uses her magic to lift up one of the female villagers, choking her. Snow White, sword in hand, charges at the Queen, who disappears in a cloud of smoke at the last moment, dropping the village girl. Charming breaks out of his binds, aiding the villager. Regina reappears, telling Snow White that she has until sundown the next day to give up her claim to the throne. For every day that Snow White defies her, she will kill one of Snow White's subjects. Regina further taunts the Princess by claiming that she'll never be a Queen. 041b061a72
