Lost Girl: "Lovers. Apart." Episode Review  
Lost Girl 4.03 "Lovers. Apart."

Judging from the fact that Bo had jumped out from the train, and because traveling from one plane of existence to another is dangerous, I'm guessing that it'll take a little longer before we find out who had taken Bo. I mean, we know kinda, but characters refuse to say his name as though it was something of a curse. And now that both Bo and Dyson don't remember the train we'll have a little bit more to figure out what exactly happened.

I'm guessing we're getting more of Lauren's backstory after all. I'm glad for that.

I'm also taking a wild guess that her waitress friend either was sent to watch Lauren and get information before whoever came to take her or she caved under the pressure when they came looking for her. Either way it doesn't look good.

And it looks like Evony (aka the Morrigan) is back, in all her cartoon villainy glory.

What bothers me about her, in general, is that we don't really get a sense of who she really is. Leader of the Dark Fae, yes, but what else? Who is she as a person? How did she get elected to become the leader of the Dark? She doesn't seem at least a bit concerned when it comes to the danger that threatens their entire species, and she seems more than willingly to kill anything and anyone without an inch of remorse. Surely that's a Dark thing, but she seems more someone that the Dark fear because she can dispose of them whenever she likes rather than an effective leader. She also has this petty fury towards Bo, which I'm guessing is hurt pride because Bo didn't choose to join the Dark? It just seems kind of ridiculous at this point to continue on with this cycle unless there's something interesting to get into about her character. Like, I get she's antagonistic, and cartoon villains can be fun and entertaining, but I feel like we should get more with her and her motives aside from "just because."

Other than that, this was a good episode. Next episode is noted to be focusing on Bo and Kenzi (and hopefully Tamsin as well), so I can't wait!

This, basically.

I was a bit confused about who took Bo. I mean, her father, in some orchestrated way, but if it was her father, I kind of thought it would be a lot harder to get away from him? And I know Tamsin was involved, but I honestly can't remember who that human dude was who told the Morrigan about Bo being gone.

I kind of want Bo's father to turn up and become the next Morrigan.

I think that he's guy who has been supplying Kenzi and also the one who gave Tamsin her Super Valkyrie dose last season.

Oh, yes. That would be amazing.

All the hints that have been dropped about her father seem to point to the fact that he's Bad News, so being head of the Dark Fae seem like a natural move, as well as a great way to set up some more interesting conflict. Though I would also accept him just killing the Morrigan for whatever reason, because she is wearing VERY thin for me.

Especially if it means having to convince/manipulate his daughter into joining the Dark, or have her go against him. Or perhaps it has nothing to do with Dark or Light but something far beyond that, like absolute power and control. It would become a very personal thing not just for Bo concerning her father, but for Bo herself. That is something I would like to see happen, just in general really.

LOL! THe Morrigan is rather cartoony isn't she? I can honestly say I won't miss her.

I mean, I just wish they'd do something more with her character than what they've been doing. It doesn't even have to be any kind of complicated backstory, just something more to her than just being stereotypically diabolical.
