Lost Girl: "Waves" Episode Review  
Lost Girl 4.10 "Waves"

Well, we got a little more explanation, but not by a whole lot.

Like, how did Bo get from questioning and demanding answers from Rayner to suddenly making out with him on the train? It was like some switch turned on and suddenly there's a deeper connection that we didn't really see. I'm trying to understand, but it's kind of confusing, mostly because I'm not entirely sure where this is leading to. Rayner appears to have been bad news so much that he had to be sent away without his memory and with no way of escaping his punishment, not until the right person comes along. And apparently, this is what Trick inadvertently did; he created this after using his blood all those ages ago, and now it's come back to bite him on the ass. But we don't know much about Rayner. What did he do? What does Bo know about him, and does she even know to trust him? What happens if she learns that Rayner is not all what he appears to be?

Let's also talk about Bo basically abandoning her friends over him. That is so unlike her. She would never do something like that unless there was an absolute reason for it, and even then she would at least have someone who would listen to her. But she hasn't even contacted anyone. She basically shut them out.

I keep thinking either she a.) knows something and is keeping it hidden from them or b.) was brainwashed.

Either way, I'm not entirely sure what is happening here. Mostly because we've spent all this time thinking that the Wanderer is her father and we get something like this. I want to believe there's something else at work; that maybe whoever may want that seed in which the Una Mens, after their demise (by her hands, thanks to Rayner), retreated to, has been in waiting until Rayner had escaped in order for this to happen and has been using Bo in order to do so. Idk. Again, it's still very confusing and we still don't know the whole story, especially about Rayner and Trick and what happened between them in their past and what caused this whole thing to begin with.

Even though the Una Mens are no more, I have this sinking feeling that the threat of someone Bo loves will end up in grave danger. While I don't want anyone to die, I have a suspicion it might be Trick, as his last resort in saving his granddaughter and making amends for what he did.

And as always, our trio dream team working together makes me very happy (the only person who was missing was Tamsin.) Kenzi being excited over mermaids will never not be the best thing ever, plus I really liked how they got the lore of mermaids to work in the episode. Complete with them turning into foam when they die. Cool, indeed.

Overall, I liked the episode well enough but it needed more answers. We have like, what, two more episodes to go? Something needs to happen to explain more thoroughly what all this is about, and why Bo is going with Rayner so willingly because right now I'm not convinced. And I want something to really kind of show us that after everything, that evil that Tamsin saw in her previous life, all that happened last season, Trick being afraid, I want all of that to pay off in the end. I want there to be some meaning to all of this.

I have no idea. Really, this show never makes too much sense if you think about it, but this is really out of left field. And like, I don't get why Tamsin was so scared of Rayner last season? All he seems to do is hang out on his train and play bad music.

Kenzi was basically me in this episode, because I would also go gaga for mermaids like that.

She says that in one of her previous lifetimes she met him (the Wanderer) and she had never met someone who possessed such evil. So I'm guessing he's much more dangerous than we know? Because on the train he doesn't remember why he was placed there or who did it. Now that he's on the physical plane again, with his powers restored and his memory, he might be withholding information from Bo? Trying to get her to trust him so she does what he says? And that's already happened with her killing the Una Mens. Which makes it even more dangerous because if this is true, and she finds something that incriminates him, she can't defeat him because he has the ability of foresight and can see all her attack moves.

And based off what Tamsin said, he would do anything to claim his "ideal mate", even if it meant creating her himself. So this leads more questions on how/why there's a connection between Bo and Rayner. idk

lol, same here. Any mythical creature, actually.

I'm so glad the Una Mens are dead, really. They annoyed me. lol.

I guess Rayner is probably much worse than we know, though that still doesn't explain why in the flashback that was supposedly explaining things, it didn't explain why Bo suddenly jumped into bed with him saying he was her destiny. It didn't even look like he DID anything to her, you know?

And if I have to pick between Trick and Tamsin dying, I'll go for Trick.

My thoughts exactly. Unless he imprinted on her previously, like that handprint dealio which we never quite got an explanation for.

I'm personally blaming the butterfly. It seemed that after Bo touched it, everything started going a little bit off with her but I seriously am wondering what the hell's going on. Seeing how they only have three episodes left, now doesn't seem like the best time to introduce yet another plot thread, although I suppose the death of the Una Mens leaves a place for whoever is using the seed.

But there's something going on here that we're not privy to, or this whole Wanderer business is more complicated than what they've shown? Like, the person that Rayner seems to be doesn't match with what we've seen in S3 thus far (cutting off Acacia's hand, kdinapping Bo, etc).
Renée: Lost Girl.rogueslayer452 on January 24th, 2014 02:04 am (UTC)
Yeah, that butterfly thing was weird. And we got no context of that either. Like, why was that on the train? How did it get there? What is the significance of it and what did it have to do with Rayner?

Like, the person that Rayner seems to be doesn't match with what we've seen in S3 thus far (cutting off Acacia's hand, kdinapping Bo, etc).

Those are my thoughts exactly, like everything we've gotten until now has been the Wanderer has been pretty much a scary motherfucker. If he's been trapped on a train all this time with no memory of why he was placed there in the first place, how could all of what occurred last season have happened? Unless he's been lying, or someone else has been in charge (someone who wants that seed) and the Wanderer is just their pawn for something much bigger.

Yeah, I guess it was supposed to be something that she had found when she was younger, so thus leading to the whole idea of Rayner=destiny? But it just came off as...really weird and oddly placed, considering that after she found it she was all on board with Rayner?

Unless he's been lying, or someone else has been in charge (someone who wants that seed) and the Wanderer is just their pawn for something much bigger

I'm starting to suspect that as well, only from what we've seen of Rayner as a character, he doesn't seem that he'd have knowledge of the seed or much motivation beyond tearing down the current system of laws? Which may be that someone else (Bo's father?) is moving all the pieces instead.
