Lost Girl: "It Begins" Episode Review

Lost Girl 4.12 "It Begins"

I feel like this episode and the finale are just gonna be filled with many things as possible to introduce how big the Big Bad is going to be, even if it doesn't necessarily deliver on that front.

There's just so much happening, and all in favor of prophecies and destinies being fulfilled. It's still very confusing because up until now it hasn't been consistent and I think the problem is due to most of the season dealing with memory loss and until recently having only dealing with Rayner (which we don't know much of anyway and even with history returning in the books and painting him as a horrible person which may or may not be true we still don't know anything about him or whether he can be trusted, or why Bo trusts him). It's just been a cluster of things and it's not really been that cohesive this season.

Moreover, is the situation between Kenzi and Bo is what I want to talk about.

Kenzi is riddled with grief. She just lost someone she loved, had to attend his funeral, wanting to get revenge on the bastard who did it but shit goes wrong when she attempts twice for doing so, and on top of that having to deal with all the other bullshit of destiny and whatnot. Which she unfortunately learns that Hale's death had to play a part of. At this point she feels completely and utterly done with everything surrounding the Fae. Bo has been trying to comfort her, but there's already so much on her plate that she cannot guarantee anything for her friend, so ultimately Kenzi feels betrayed by her. For not saving Hale when she asked her to, for not giving her the time to grieve, for letting Massamo go. But I also feel like Kenzi blames herself most of all, because had she'd not given away the Twig of Zamora none of this would have happened. She feels angry with herself, angry with the situation that has happened.

When she demanded that Bo unclaim her, it was her saying she has had it with everything. She wants out. Everything that is going on she wants none of it.

I figure it will only be momentarily, because regardless she does care and Bo and the rest of the gang are her friends and family, but at this moment in time she feels like everything around her as crumbled. Also, because the Bo and Kenzi friendship is the absolute center of the show and they will not break even when there is a rough patch.

But also, there's the frustration with Bo and her own situation. This season has been kind of all over the place with her storyline that, even if we did get a glimpse of it last season and it's finally coming to a head here, it doesn't seem very cohesive the way they've handled it. Most of the season was her wondering why the hell she mysteriously joined the Dark and why she couldn't remember what happened when she disappeared. Now in these last string of episodes she seems to believe Rayner and believes she loves him and that he's the Warrior and now suddenly she's The Queen, The One, and she had to marry him in order to save his life and confront her father who, surprise sur-freaking-prise, happens to be bad news and that she has made a huge mistake. And her fight with Lauren was sort of unnecessary, I think. It's like she has butted heads with everyone from Dyson to Lauren and now Kenzi over this one dude who she has not known for very long and doesn't know much about, and it's really kind of, ugh. Idk.

Everything is just very disjointed. I'm not quite sure how the finale is gonna be handled and how much is gonna get done, but I'm betting there will be a cliffhanger.
