Lost Girl: "End of a Line" Episode Review  
Lost Girl 4.11 "End of a Line"

I am at loss for words on what just happened.

Like, I'm not even sure my brain has fully processed it yet.

I'm also in denial, because this is Hale we're talking about. He has been part of the show since the very beginning. He's been an important part of Team Awesome for basically four seasons and suddenly it's like, he gets killed. Part of me wants to believe that this isn't going to stick, that somehow he gets saved and is resurrected, but that last scene with Kenzi begging, pleading and basically demanding that Bo use all her chi to save him and the crying and just, ugh, unless there is a miracle happening in the finale, I think this is a final done deal. And it sucks. It really really fucking sucks.

(Although I feel like there was something else happening with him, his ears bleeding happened twice this season, so maybe that might be explained later, idk.)

And poor Kenzi, this is the second love she has lost. Why can't she ever catch a break?

I mean she still has Bo and their strong friendship and being platonic life partners and all ("You had me at a-hole" "I choose you, I will always choose you!"), but she had just realized her feelings for Hale this season and to take all that away from her? Never mind how much she is blaming herself and will continue to blame herself for his death, I just can't okay. ;___;

Aside from that, I'm kind of frustrated at Bo right now because of her exclamation about Rayner and how she feels like she's in a real relationship because she contributed something to it. I don't know, it feels kind of a weak explanation on why she's with him, you know? I know we don't really know how Bo feels and how Bo thinks she knows Rayner, but that's the problem with how the show set it all up. Like that flashback episode didn't give us anything on why she suddenly trusted him or how she suddenly fell in love with him. We don't know anything about Rayner, or whether he's being truthful, and Bo being highly defensive of him and basically claims that she wasn't kidnapped and everything is okay when everything clearly is not okay. Like, it's conflicting because I know she doesn't owe anyone anything but at the same time, you can't expect people to trust someone you just met and who nobody knows anything about, and where we don't even know how you trust him either.

Also, Rayner not being the one Tamsin had worked for? And what is Vex up to? Could he possibly be working for the same person that approached Tamsin? And Rayner, where the fuck was he?

I don't think we'll be getting enough answers in the finale, tbh.

And right now all I can think about is Hale and that last scene that broke everything inside of me.

That last scene was... something. I had a feeling we were headed toward something bad when Kenzi started getting the crap kicked out of her when she was in her underwear. It just suddenly felt like real violence. Of course, she didn't end up getting a sword used on her, but the seriousness of the scene was definitely leading to something major. And it did.

Yeah. This show has its fighting scenes, but this was I think the most real violent scene we've ever gotten, because of how vulnerable Kenzi was and how serious shit got very fast. Not just that, but the fact that this wasn't anything supernatural about this fight. It was a human attacking another human, a male intruder beating and overpowering a defenseless woman in her own home. That is perhaps the worst fear a woman can have, even if you have your own weapons and whatnot (like Kenzi had her sword, but she couldn't reach it in time.)

I was anticipating what would happen. I wanted Hale to help save her, which he did, but I didn't anticipate what happened next. And it just, it took my off guard and I still haven't really recovered from it.

OTOH, maybe Tamsin and Trick are safe now? I mean, someone Bo loved already died...

Maybe? I don't know. I'm still worried that something may happen.

Ksenia was amazing... but I could have done without Hale's death.I had been rooting for them since season 1, and now I feel strung along and emotionally manipulated/violated by the writers....not to mention effing heartbroken!

Since this show is kind of a mess now and there aren't many other things keeping me watching,I kinda want to stop watching....

I was kind of shell-shocked when the episode ended. I couldn't believe they went there. I'm not quite sure how to feel yet (on the off-chance that there's something else up their sleeve re: this whole thing.)

I'm still gonna keep watching, of course, though I agree this season hasn't been the greatest. It has a nice setup that I'm interested in, but it's been mostly messy and incoherent with where they're taking it (i.e. Bo and Rayner, for example, doesn't make sense and unless they make it make sense in the finale I'm not quite sure where they're getting at with them and Bo's mysterious "destiny" or whatever.)

Ksenia Solo was amazing this week. Amazing talent!

I don't think we'll get decent answers for the finale and I'm with you on being frustrated with Bo. No decent explanations there at all!

For real though, from her scene with her mother to that ending, she just blew me away. That last scene had me bawling, jfc.

Honestly, out of all the seasons, I think this is the weakest because we haven't really gotten anywhere.

That's exactly it. We're just having filler episodes plot wise and not moving along at all. I'm so over the Wanderer and the train as it's just getting more and more drawn out and boring but the show can't move passed it.
