A group of strippers enter the police station and break out a cop killer. Bo is asked to investigate when a Fae identifies one of them as her daughter. Dyson reappears and Bo finds herself at odds with him over the case they both are working on from different angles. The clues take Bo and Kenzi to investigate a strip club and Bo discovers that all of the dancers there are Fae and they are using their powers on the cliental there. Bo manages to get a job at the club tending bar and learns that the group, who are Selkie are attempting to gather what they need to steal their pelts from the owner of the club that is keeping all of them there under his control. With Bo's help, they manage that, and with Dyson's help bring the owner of the club to justice. Dyson is still with Ciara, and she is entwining her life with his. Trick discovers that there is something going on between the Light and Dark Fae that is resulting in the deaths of many of them, but does not know why it is happening. Bo learns that Lauren's girlfriend Nadia has been in a coma for the past five years because of Lauren's mistakes in the past and how they involved her with the Fae. Together they discover what the Morrigan gave to Bo as the solution to save Nadia, but have no idea what it is.
The episode begins with Bo (Anna Silk) and Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) sitting on their couch at Bo's home. Sitting between them is the Morrigan's gift to save Nadia, Lauren's girlfriend, that Bo received in the previous episode It's Better to Burn Out Than Fae Away. Kenzi demands that Bo opens the gift, but she refuses to do so, worried that it is a trap, or worse, according to Kenzi, send Lauren into the arms of Nadia. When Bo declares that it is not even hers to open, Kenzi then taunts her with the idea that they should get rid of it. Bo's reply is to snatch the gift back, saying that would be underhanded and selfish to which Kenzi says she is not. Bo says she could be those things, but Kenzi just smiles and tells her it's good to have dreams before touching Bo on the nose and getting off the couch.
The scene then moves to the police station that has appeared in many episodes before. A cop killer is chained to a desk by a police officer and then locked in a room alone. Moments later a trio of masked strippers appear and begin dancing for the police officers, all of their attention placed on them. The men appear to be tranced or at least hypnotized by them and, over time, the women disarm them and take their clothing and other items. While this happens, the cop killer watches from the locked room as if anticipating something.
Returning from the opening credits, Dyson (Kristen Holden-Ried) and Hale (K.C. Collins) walk into the station to discover the officers in the room disarmed, partially disrobed, and confused about what exactly had happened to them. As well, the cop killer is no longer in the locked room and appears to have escaped with the help of the strippers. Hale and Dyson check the surveillance cameras and discover that the cop killer, Zephyr (Robin Kasyanov), was indeed taken from the police station with the help of the strippers who it appears seem to know him. Dyson comes to the conclusion that the woman came into the station, seduce enough of the men to give up their clothing and then took Zephyr away. Hale comes to the conclusion that it has to be a group of Fae that did this. Dyson agrees, but he comments that the scent of Fae is very weak and he doesn't know why.
Bo and Kenzi in the meantime are in a park with a Fae woman named Donna (Maria Del Mar). Kenzi reads from a newspaper article about the breakout at the station and Donna states that the girl in the pictures is her daughter, and that she, and her daughter, are simple tree folk and she doesn't understand why her daughter would do this. Bo asks if Donna is sure that it is her daughter and she says she is sure even after ten years. It turns out, according to her, that they had a fight, her daughter left and she never heard from her again. Donna asks Bo to find her daughter Sheri (Cristina Rosato) as according to the other Fae in town, Bo is the best, and that since the police will believe that Sheri is with Zephyr that she has to do something. Bo then agrees to take on the case, find Sheri and help her if she can. After Donna leaves, Kenzi notes that the words "simple tree folk" were repeated over and over again and she thinks that they haven't been told the truth. Bo agrees noting that the Fae have never been straight with them. Kenzi repeats Zephyr several times and after deciding that it must be Russian, makes a phone call to someone, speaking Russian as she does to try and get information on him. Bo is unhappy about the entire situation as she knows full well that she will have to be on Dyson's turf and sneaking around him.
Hale is interrogating the officers that were involved in the stripper breakout and in each case the testimony comes down to the men being dazzled by the woman and not remembering much other than the cup sizes of them and not much else. Dyson then arrives and drags Hale off to the last known location of Zephyr. At that moment, Bo has arrived at that location to find a van parked inside of what looks like a warehouse. She finds on the floor one of the outfits that the women were wearing as well as one of the masks as well. She checks the van for clues, finding it empty, but takes some items from the glovebox that she discovers there when she hears a car pull up outside. She attempts to hide, but walks into the body of Zephyr hanging from the ceiling to her surprise. He is dead, hung from the neck and one of his hands are removed from his corpse. Dyson then calls out Bo's name and she spins around with the words: "I'd like to report a murder."
Returning from commercial, Bo attempts to deflect Dyson's questions about what she is doing there, but in the end she tells him that she is investigating a missing persons case, but refuses to tell him anything more about it. Hale comes back in after looking at the can and comments that it is empty and the glovebox was cleaned out. Bo quickly makes her excuses to them and then leaves the scene as quickly as she can. Dyson is sure that Bo is holding out on him, but lets her go. The two decide that they need to take the body to Lauren for further examination and do so.
Bo finds Kenzi at The Dal Riata and the two of them examine what Bo was able to take from the van. They are in the middle of a conversation about the tree folk when Kenzi suddenly hides the evidence as someone approaches their table. That turns out to be Ciara (Lina Roessler) who begins to talk to them both, but stops as Trick (Richard Howland) comes by and asks him for his most expensive bottle of scotch to celebrate a business deal she had made recently in Zurich which involves her investing in a medical research facility. When she walks away, and Trick passes by, Bo asks him if Ciara is rich and Trick confirms that. Bo's comment on that news is that "Dyson's girlfriend is a billionaire and I live in a house without walls." Kenzi then shows Bo a VIP membership card for a strip club called the Naughty Ladies Gentleman's Club and putting two and two together, the pair leave to see if Sheri and the other girls involved are there or not.
Dyson and Hale are back at the station going over the evidence they have and Hale discovers that one of the officers, Boyd (Richard Chevolleau) had recently lost his keycard to the station. Dyson remembers something and shows Hale a picture of Boyd being very friendly with one of the strippers and they come to the conclusion that he must know this woman from somewhere. Bo and Kenzi meanwhile arrive in the strip club to find Sheri and all of the other women they are looking for dancing there. As they watch, Kenzi comments that she didn't know that she liked "chicks" and Bo figures out that the women, all of them, must be Fae using their powers on the humans in the room to control them, and playing on the centre stage is Sheri.
After another commercial break, Bo and Kenzi are sitting at a table watching Sheri finish her set. Kenzi asks if Bo feels what they are doing to her and Bo says that yes, she is horny but not hypnotized. After Sheri is finished, Kenzi calls her over to their table and pays for Sheri to perform a lap dance for Bo. Bo attempts to talk to her, but Sheri refuses to talk at first and tries to use her powers on Bo, but when Bo resists her and then begins to question her, Sheri pulls away assuming that Bo is a cop. Kenzi then explains that Bo is looking for a job and Sheri shrugs that off saying that she needs to talk to Lewis (David Hemstead). He tells Bo that she could be a headliner at the strip club in no time, but would have to pay a price. Bo explains that she was thinking more about tending the bar and Lewis agrees to that idea as it would make his customers happy.
Bo and Kenzi return home and talk about what happened. Bo surprises Kenzi by telling her that she is going to take the bartender job there. Kenzi tries to get Bo to understand that they did their job, they found Sheri and at this point they should leave her to Dyson and Hale to deal with. Bo refuses saying that there is no one looking out for Sheri and Kenzi tells her that "that's what makes you, you."
Hale in the meantime is interrogating Boyd about what happened once again. He tells Boyd that they know his card was used by the strippers to gain access to the station and that makes him an accomplice to a cop killer. Boyd tries to explain that he is innocent of what happened and that it was possible that he had been at a strip club, met Sheri, told her that he would be involved in moving Zephyr, and she took his card. Hale then tells Boyd to write down the address of the club.
Elsewhere, Trick is standing over a map of the city which has many markers pinned to it. He is on the phone and repeats that a group of Light Fae Nuns attacked a group of Dark Fae customers at a charity clothing drive. After hanging up, he stares at the map with all of the incidents marked on it very concerned. Bo then enters the room but before she can see anything that he is looking at, he covers it up and asks how he can help her. Bo tells him that she has a human with one hand cut off, and a very bad haircut. Trick asks if there was body fat removed and Bo tells him that he was kind of filleted. Trick explains that someone is making something called The Hand of Glory. It turns out that it is a candle used as a talisman by thieves which allows anyone that lights it to break into anything that they wish to as long as the candle remains lit and the only thing that can douse the candle is milk. When Bo asks why everyone doesn't own one, she is told that it is a grizzly affair to make and that the hand retains the personality of the person it was taken from.
At the same moment, Lauren is talking to Dyson and also explains about the Hand to him, including that the candle is the fat of the person, the wick is their hair and that the one killed must be a murderer. She also tells him that the more vicious the killer the more powerful the hand is. After getting the information Dyson asks her if she has talked to anyone else about this case and her answer is no. When he leaves, Lauren asks if she could stay in the room they are in for a while as she has an escort and this is one of the few times she feels free. Dyson tells her to take all the time she needs and then leaves the room. Lauren then calls Bo who is still at Trick's when she answers the call. After talking about the Hand for a moment, Lauren then asks Bo if she has had any luck with the solution that the Morrigan had promised for her. Bo's answer is that she only has more questions. Asking Lauren if there was anything else, the answer is no, and then she hangs up on Lauren abruptly. The next scene is of Bo at the strip club tending bar and trying to talk to Sheri. Bo asks why she doesn't go to another club and Sheri tells her that she was planning to leave the business soon and do something on her own. Sheri is then called to the stage to perform her set and, just after she leaves, Dyson and Hale appear in the club and confront Bo.
Back from commercial and Dyson begins to grill Bo on what she is doing at the club. Dyson is not pleased with Bo getting in the way of his investigation and before she can make her excuses, Sheri appears on stage and Hale puts it all together commenting that their missing persons case is the same one as Bo's. They go to arrest Sheri, but Bo pleads with them not to interfere and give her a chance to find out why Sheri made the Hand of Glory. When she tells Dyson that he needs her, he tells Bo that he's not sure that he can trust her anymore. He does however relent and after telling Bo to be careful, the pair leaves. Afterwards, Bo notices that Lewis is leaving his office and she makes her way inside. She discovers that his office has a number of fishing trophies including sharks and other big-game fish. She searches the office and finds a save behind a poster from the club on a wall. When she attempts to touch the safe, she finds her hand passing through it as if it didn't exist. After taking a picture of it and hiding the safe again, she is confronted by Lewis before she can leave. Bo makes the excuse that she was admiring his collection of trophies and Lewis preens among them telling Bo of some of the adventures he has had. When Lewis becomes to close for her liking, Bo takes a glass he was holding and then excuses herself to return to the bar once more.
Bo meets Dyson and Hale at The Dal Riata and tells them about the invisible safe and what else she has learned. They blow up the image of the safe that Bo took and Dyson explains that the safe was made by the Nibelung Dwarves, the best metal smiths in the world. The unique part of this safe is that they managed to make the metal exist in two different dimensions and that it cannot be broken into, except of course if you use the Hand of Glory. Dyson takes a phone call and also reveals that Lewis is a Dark Fae named Kobe Ah Ket and he is a Bunyip, a water spirit that abducts women. Hale suggests that they arrest Lewis immediately, but Bo pleads for more time for her to get Sheri what she needs in that safe. Dyson agrees but warns that she has until noon in order to do so as they will arrest him at that time.
Bo and Kenzi meet Donna at Bo's house and demand that she tell them the truth about what is going on. Donna explains that she and Sheri are Selkie, or as Bo calls them, seal shifters. Donna explains that she gave away her pelt to be with a human and then had Sheri. Bo is confused and asks how it is possible when it is illegal for the Fae to have children with humans, Donna brushes that off explaining that Selkie are in a grey area and that rule does not apply to them. She also explains that she was pregnant with Sheri before she met the fisherman she loved. Donna also reveals that she never explained to Sheri that she was a Selkie either, and hid Sheri's pelt from her. When Sheri turned fifteen she found her pelt and the breakup with her daughter happened. Bo asks what happens if a Selkie does not have her pelt and the answer is that they can never return to the sea.
Bo returns to the strip club to find it empty and Sheri working on something. Bo confronts her and reveals that she knows that Sheri is trying to get her pelt and that she is going to use the Hand of Glory to get it. Bo also tells her that Donna sent her to help and that she isn't going to be the one to turn her in for Zephyr's murder. Sheri explains that Zephyr had hurt one of the girls badly and that when they discovered he was a murderer, the rest just happened. She also reveals to Bo that all of the girls in the club are Selkie like her. She explains that Lewis tricked them into turning human and then took their pelts in exchange for the money the girls needed for their plans of building a beachside hotel. Lewis made them a deal of working for him for one year and then being released, but he never kept his end of the bargain. Sheri asks Bo what her intends to do, and Bo tells her that she will help her as Donna asked her to. The group of Selkie gather and prepare to light the Hand, with Sheri's promise to Bo that she will see her mother immediately afterwards. Sheri attempts to light the Hand but is interrupted as Lewis enters the club, enraged at the damaged doors and wanting to know what is going on. Dyson and Hale arrive next and hold Lewis at gunpoint giving Bo and Sheri a chance to light the Hand. They do so and everyone in the room with them is frozen were they are, only Bo and Sheri able to move as they were touching the candle when it was lit, who rush off in the direction of Lewis' office.
Back from commercial again finds Bo and Sheri in the office revealing the safe. Sheri attempts to touch the safe, but her hand passes through it. Bo suggests that maybe the hand knows what to do and after Sheri places it on a desk an ethereal hand of smoke rises from the candle, approaches the safe and opens it revealing the pelts within. As they remove then, the candle flashes and the hand reappears, flies across the room and begins to choke Sheri. Bo finds a container of milk and pours it over the candle putting an end to its powers and saving Sheri. On the main floor, everyone moves again and moments later Bo and Sheri appear with the pelts, all of the Sekie rushing over to them to retrieve what is theirs. Lewis attempts to stop them, but Hale arrests him and takes him away. Dyson then confronts Bo telling her that he has to arrest Sheri now for what she has done. Bo asks that he doesn't that no one needs to know what Sheri and her sisters did. Dyson asks Bo if she wants him to conceal all that has happened from the Ash and she explains that what Sheri did was to free her and her sisters from slavery. Sheri then come over and asks if Dyson had ever had something special to him taken away. Dyson and Bo look at each other quietly for a moment, obviously in pain over what had happened to them before Dyson agrees to cover things up with Bo's help.
The final scenes begin with Trick looking at a newspaper that has a headline on it that the death of Zephyr had been deemed a suicide and smiles. The phone then rings with another report that there has been another attack between the Light and Dark Fae in the city. Trick then makes a call to someone else telling them that he needs to talk to Lauren if the Ash will allow it.
Donna, Sheri and Bo are together on a beach, Donna reconciling with her daughter finally and healing if not all of the wounds between them at least making a start to do so. Cheri thanks Bo one more time for what she did for them all and after a last embrace with her mother, she returns to the sea transforming into a deal and disappearing into the surf.
Dyson and Ciara are next seen at Dyson's home being intimate together. Her phone rings and Dyson throws it away complaining that all of her calls are important to which she answers that she is a powerful woman. She then offhandedly mentions a painting she bought for herself, a rug she bought as well and tells Dyson that she might as well make herself at home since she seems to be there most of the time. They continue to embrace and have sex, but Dyson has a troubled look as they do that Ciara never sees.
Lauren visits Trick, a watcher standing nearby to be sure that she does not escape. Trick tells her that over the past week there has been an increase in hostility between the Light and the Dark Fae, and always unprovoked. Trick asks if she has even seen something like this to which Lauren explains that nothing she knows of would trigger the blind rage that Trick describes the Fae being in. Before they can continue to talk about the problem, Bo arrives. Lauren's watcher blocks Bo's way to Lauren, but Trick offers the man a beer and Bo and Lauren have a chance to talk.
Bo tells Lauren that she owes her an apology, that she was angry with Lauren and that it was unfair but it was because Lauren was unfair to Bo. She then places the Morrigan's gift on the table and tells Lauren that she knows about Nadia because the Morrigan told her. Lauren tells Bo she is relieved that she knows, that it had been killing her not to tell Bo about Nadia. Lauren explains that Nadia is lying in a coma for the past five years because of something that Lauren did. Lauren explains that she was in the Congo on a research grant, Nadia was with her taking pictures of refuges for a magazine. Five months into their excursion a disease attacked nearby villages and Lauren went to help. And that was when she discovered the Fae as they were the ones being killed by the disease. Nadia became the only human to be attacked by the disease The Old Ash was there and offered Lauren assistance in finding a cure for Nadia, but at the price of her complete servitude to him. Bo tells Lauren that they might have the cure in front of them, but that she hadn't opened it because she felt that they should do that together.
The final scene of the episode has Bo open the gift box to reveal a slim grey rod of some unknown material resting on silver cloth. She lifts it from the box, looks at it and then offers it to Lauren. Bo asks what it is supposed to be and Lauren's answer is that she has no idea as the episode ends.

Answers in this Episode
- Kenzi can apparently speak Russian.
- The reason that Kenzi left her home was that she asked her mother to choose between her and her step-father.
- Ciara apparently is worth several billion dollars and previously ran the security company that her late husband, the King mentioned in the episode BrotherFae of the Wolves owned. She now owns the entire company.
- Selkie in the Lost Girl universe have some powers similar to that of Succubi as to controlling others, but unlike them, they do not seem to have to make physical contact with humans or others to attempt to influence them. In the myth, Selkies are able to become human by taking off their seal skins, and can return to seal form by putting it back on. Stories concerning selkies are generally romantic tragedies. Sometimes the human will not know that their lover is a selkie, and wakes to find them gone. Other times the human will hide the selkie's skin, thus preventing them from returning to seal form. The Selkie in the Lost Girl universe appear to follow most of what the legend says about them, including that if they do not have their pelts they cannot return to the sea. You can find out more about this myth here.
- Bo apparently can resist the powers of Selkie Fae.
- The Hand of Glory is a candle used as a talisman by thieves which allows anyone that lights it to break into anything that they wish to. It renders motionless all persons nearby when it is lit. The candle can only be put out with milk. It is the dried and pickled hand of a man who has been hanged, often specified as being the left hand, or else, if the man were hanged for murder, the hand that "did the deed." There is a myth about this item and the Lost Girl universe version of it seems to be very close to this myth. You can find out more about it here. The Lost Girl universe version has a ethereal hand made of the smoke from the candle which open safes and other vaults for the bearer of the candle. However, it also seems to have the personality of the one it is made of as shown in the episode when Sheri is attacked by it and Bo saves her by dousing the candle with milk.
- There is a reference to the Nibelung Dwarves in Norse mythology. You can find out more about this legend here. The Lost Girl universe legend does not fit this legend exactly, though there is a connection with safeguarding a valuable treasure.
- A Bunyip, is a Dark Fae water spirit that abducts women in the Lost Girl universe. The bunyip, or kianpraty myth is of a large mythical creature from Australian Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. You can find out more about this myth here.
- Nadia has been lying in a coma for the past five years because of something that Lauren did. Lauren explained that she was in the Congo on a research grant, Nadia was with her taking pictures of refuges for a magazine. Five months into their excursion a disease attacked nearby villages and Lauren went to help. And that was when she discovered the Fae as they were the ones being killed by the disease. Nadia became the only human to be attacked by the disease. The Old Ash was there and offered Lauren assistance in finding a cure for Nadia, but at the price of her complete servitude to him.
- The gift that was given to save Nadia looks something like a nail with intricate markings along the length of it.
