This was a great start to the final season, and what I'm hoping will be an improvement to last season.
I really liked that we immediately got right into going to Valhalla to save Kenzi. I also really liked that after seeing her there, that she was having second thoughts about her rescue plan. Obviously she wanted to bring Kenzi home, but if Kenzi was truly happy there, especially with the plans of having her be married to Hale when he crossed over from where he was residing from the other afterlives, then she wasn't going to intervene. She was placing Kenzi's happiness over her own selfish reasons for bringing her home, and I loved that she reassured her about that.
But of course, everything went to shit. Now Kenzi has returned back into her body in the mortal world and Bo is supposedly going to finally meet her father.
Which, I have to say, I got serious Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibes when Kenzi awakened in her coffin underground. The only difference is that at least Bo had the actual decency and brains to look and verify Kenzi's whereabouts, making sure she was okay and asking for her consent to return back to Earth if she was truly unhappy where she was and setting aside her own personal feelings on the matter for her friend's opinions, unlike fucking Willow, but I digress. Either way, I'm guessing either Kenzi is going to use the blade that Bo gave her to get herself out from her own grave (which must be traumatizing enough) or that Dyson and Co. are going to come help her out, and then it will be a race to get Bo back as well.
It's not unknown that I'm not Lauren's biggest fan, so when she told Tamsin that she hasn't sacrificed anything it made me really mad. Tamsin has sacrificed so much, so I'm not here for Lauren trying to guilt her into helping. Oh, and I'm so not here for the possibility that Lauren might turn herself Fae. It hasn't been mentioned on the show, but it's been implied with certain scenes, particularly with her ability to turn Fae into human and human into Fae (and that the Dark will be coming after her), and it makes me worried that they may go that route. Especially if it's for the reason that she can claim Bo which, no, I'm also not here for that.
THIS IS TAMSIN'S LAST LIFE, OH NO MY BBY TAM-TAM. D: AND SHE DOESN'T WANT TO LIVE IT WITHOUT BO! WITHOUT KENZI! WITHOUT HER FAMILY THAT SHE'S NEVER HAD IN ALL OF HER OTHER LIFETIMES! OH MY HEART IT HURTS. :(
However, she was pretty hilarious in this episode, from the "eat a sack of tits" to "HEEEERRRREEEE'S TAMMY!" What a gift. ♥
I'm sad that Kenzi didn't even get a chance to see Hale. I don't know if we'll even see him return to the show, perhaps only getting a little tidbit that he's waiting for Kenzi when it is finally her time for them to be together finally. Just, man, that sucks though. I know that the true love story on this show is the friendship between Kenzi and Bo (who were both adorable in this episode), and that is who Bo will choose and vice versa and that's how it should always be until the very end, but it still sucks nonetheless.
(Kenzi rocked that wedding dress, though, holy shit.)
In short, this premiere was pretty awesome. I'm hoping for more awesomeness for the remaining episodes of this show to come.
