Plot

Short Summary

Hale’s inauguration arrives but Dyson is kidnapped by a group of humans. This allows The Morrigan to discredit Hale because evidence indicates that Lauren is involved in the attack and she is missing. Through this The Morrigan forces a vote which declares that all humans held by the Fae, or connected to the Fae, are terrorists. As a result, Kenzi is arrested and sentenced to death. Lauren is deceived by Isaac who has a plan which has meant he has been hunting Fae and experimenting on them for years. Lauren is imprisoned along with Dyson and it is revealed that Aife is also being held. Trick is kidnapped by unknown persons, while Tamsin is shot as she and Bo try to locate Lauren.


Detailed Summary

The episode begins with Bo (Anna Silk) and Dyson (Kristen Holden-Ried) arriving at Lauren's home to look for her. They barge in, Bo calling out for Lauren, but she does not answer. As Bo does so, Dyson finds Lauren's abandoned cell phone on the desk where Lauren left it before leaving with Isaac in the previous episode Adventures In Fae-bysitting. Bo asks Dyson why anyone would ever leave their cell phone at home, but Dyson rationalizes that Lauren might have forgotten it. When Bo protests, Dyson tries to explain to her that he is in the "middle of the most important case of my life. Not to mention today is Hale's inauguration and I don't have time to play relationship detective." Bo cannot understand why Dyson is not taking Lauren's disappearance as seriously as she is and when Dyson suggests that her concerns are connected to The Dawning and her break up with Lauren, Bo is defensive for a moment before agreeing that she doesn't believe that what she and Lauren are going through is a "break."

Meanwhile, at the Dal Riata, Trick (Richard Howland) is in the middle of the final preparations for Hale's inauguration with Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) nearby helping him. Kenzi comments that Trick seems chipper and he replies: "My protégé today is officially becoming The Ash. Of course I'm chipper. It's good that I was hard on him. Hale is going to make a real change." Kenzi questions this asking: "Oh yeah? Is he not going to be such a dick anymore?" Trick tells Kenzi that she needs to "put your personal feelings aside. This is a big day for the Fae and they won't take kindly to a human belittling it." The Morrigan (Emmanuelle Vaugier) appears and asks: "Do the Light always hold their inaugurations at a steak house?" Trick asks what she is doing at the Dal and she replies that: "Regardless of the fact that the last time the Light elected a new leader he turned out to be an impostor, I'm only here with good wishes for the New Ash." Trick answers: "It is unacceptable for the Dark leader to attend the Light Fae inauguration." The Morrigan claims that she was invited and as she does so, Hale (K.C. Collins) appears and states that he invited her to attend. Kenzi looks at Hale for a moment, then walks away as she says: "No. Still a dick."

After the opening credits, Lauren (Zoie Palmer) is seen working in a laboratory with Isaac (Shawn Doyle) hovering nearby and watching her as she works. She is engrossed in watching a video display of the experiment she is working on and does not notice how everyone has stopped to see if her experiment is successful or not. After adding what she calls an enzyme to repair a toxin, the screen shows apparent success which seems to shock and surprise Lauren and she exclaims "We're one step closer to heart disease! Er, curing it!" before embracing isaac as the others in the lab applaud her efforts. Lauren apologizes for her actions explaining: "it's been a long time since I've felt this useful." Isaac then hands out champagne and the group celebrates Lauren's work. When Lauren questions having champagne ready when it was only their first attempt, Isaac tells her: "I knew you would do it. Drink up genius." Lauren pauses and moves to text Bo about her success, but then realizes that she does not have her phone or a means to contact Bo and becomes melancholy for a moment before joining with the others. The scene then shifts to someone in the lab, likely Lauren, taking her creation to a storage fridge and closing the door. Moments later, another figure opens the fridge and removes two of the samples before leaving with them.

At the Dal Riata, Dyson meets with Hale, the two sharing a drink together. After doing so, Hale asks Dyson what he has discovered with regards to the Fae killings and it told: "We're still processing the bodies. Eighteen so far. Both Light and Dark. And it looks like they were tortured. And some of the Vics were missing their organs." Hale wonders: "So black market Fae organ harvesters. Tell me you have a lead." Dyson cannot and Hale tells him that after the inauguration, he will talk to The Morrigan about what they have found and see if they cannot pool their resources to solve the mystery. Hale is unsure about what is to come and asks Dyson: "This is what I want right?" Dyson answers: "It's what everyone wants. Change." He then tells Hale that he is proud of "my old partner", Hale answers "Miss my old partner." Dyson then gives Hale a small container explaining: "Your father didn't want the first Ash from clan Zamora in a hundred years to stick his neck out only to have it chopped off. This little baby should keep you safe." Hale looks at it and comments: "Well, it's nice to know he cares about me. Not enough to cancel his ski trip by the way but..." Dyson then leaves saying that he has to change and look presentable for Hale's inauguration.

Bo, in the meantime, is at home soaking in her bathtub when she hears a noise and bolts from the tub brandishing a knife. It turns out to be Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) who appears to be drunk as she enters the room asking: "Wow. You always bathe with weapons?" Bo answers: "Morragh attack a couple of years back. Can't be too careful." When Bo mentioned that the door was locked, Tamsin answers: "It was." Bo asks if she can help Tamsin, but receives an unclear answer from her except to tell Bo that she mainly came by to "drink all of your liquor." Bo answers in amazement: "Wow. At least you're honest. I'll give you that." Bo tells Tamsin she's not in the mood for small talk, but Tamsin presses on saying: "Everyone loooooves small talk." Bo explains that the problem is Lauren, that she hasn't seen her in a "few days and I'm worried about her." Tamsin tells Bo that Lauren is fine and she probably "needed some space" which Bo echoes in frustration before adding that Dyson is checking who she called on her phone. Tamsin become slightly more serious saying: "So this really isn't small talk. You weren't the one that killed the blonde hottie. The six fingered lady did. And someone killed her." Bo is shocked by this revelation and then asks about the Dark Fae who Tamsin claimed Bo had attacked. But Tamsin's answer is to flush the toilet she is sitting on and then add: "It is entirely possible that I do not smell so good." When Bo suggests that she take a bath, Tamsin looks strangely at Bo before slipping off her shoes and then sliding into Bo's bath fully clothed and facing her. Tamsin then removes her gun and looks at it covered in water and bubble bath before throwing it away with an "Oops." She then becomes very focused on Bo and asks: "Where do you get off being so perfect? You think you've seen everything, and then you see you." Bo replies: "I'm alright, but I'm not perfect." Tamsin moves in very close to Bo before she continues: "Yes you are. To me you are. Your eyes are both brown and blue." Bo asks Tamsin what she is doing, but Tamsin continues: "Your heart is both strong and gentle. You're virtuous and you are a Succubus. You shouldn't be." Bo asks: "Be what?" Tamsin's answer is: "Be real. Be here." and then she gets out of the tub, her clothing soaking wet. As Tamsin leaves, Bo tells her that she'll see her at the Dal Riata, but Tamsin tells Bo: "Keep your wits about you. You never know who might be watching."

Outside of the Dal Riata, a man in a black van watches the goings-on and calls out over a radio: "We're at the nest. Target's on route."

After a commercial break, Kenzi is folding napkins in the Dal Riata and tells Trick that she does not what to be there. Trick asks why she is "dressed to the nines", Kenzi tells him that "it isn't for Hale's benefit. That guy sucks." Trick then explains to Kenzi that the bartender is late and he has no one else to help him. Kenzi shoots back, "No, you have no other humans to help you." Trick sighs and begins to walk away, but Kenzi suggests that she will start a union for claimed humans. Trick tells her: "You know the last human that tried that didn't fare very well. Jimmy Hoffa ring any bells?" After he leaves, Kenzi continues to fold napkins until a strange man approaches her (Tim Rozon). Later in the episode, he describes himself as "The Druid", but at this point there is no clue to who he is or what he wants. He tells Kenzi: "I'm looking for a tall blonde, eyes like blue ice." Kenzi laughs at this and says, "I have those eyes, those are like, totally my eyes." He continues: "You have the eyes, but you aren't a natural blonde by any chance are you?" His questions completely turn Kenzi off and she calls him "Dickface" before turning away and returning to folding the napkins. However, he does not leave and introduces himself as Massimo before he peppers Kenzi with questions and comments such as: "You are an outsider. You don't belong here do you?" "I'm a man that can do things and make the impossible happen." Kenzi finally tells him to "Make the impossible happen and disappear" but before leaving he adds: "I'll leave you to your chores." After he leaves, Kenzi looks at him and dismisses him out of hand.

Lauren confronts Isaac and asks where he found the enzyme that Lauren used, but Isaac's flippant answer is that he got it from China. Lauren allows that she is glad they met and she admits that there "has been something missing, an emptiness" inside of her. Isaac jokes that success can take care of emptiness and Lauren agrees that it can. Isaac then asks Lauren if she heard a news story about a year prior that told of "A waitress in the midwest that was attacked in a diner." When Lauren does not, he continues: "This woman. Speared in the ribs. Nailed down to the floor of the diner in the shape of cross." Lauren is uneasy about his, but Isaac continues to explain: "The DNA of a killer named Gabriel was all over the diner" and the method was this killer's usual method. Lauren is completely confused, but before she can ask further questions, Isaac takes Lauren on a tour of the facilities she is working in. As he does so, he continues the story explaining that Gabriel killed people because he wanted them to "ascend" He then explains that while Gabriel had been arrested for many killings, at the time of the waitress being murdered he was already in prison. However before he was imprisoned, Gabriel gave another man a bone marrow transplant to save his life. Lauren cannot believe this story and refuses to believe that by using this transplant Gabriel was able to take control of the other man. Isaac claims that this is, in fact, what happened and then asks Lauren: "What do you think we could do if we could take that negative and turn it into a positive?" Lauren is immediately against this idea and expresses her fears about the darker side of what they could so with such a thing, referring to the atomic bomb in doing so. Isaac then asks if they just had their first fight in a somewhat surprised tone of voice. Lauren is taken aback by his attitude, but he insists they continue their tour.

Back at the Dal Riata, the bartender that Trick was waiting for, named Jerry (Seth Cooperman), arrives. Trick asks why he is late, but does not listen to Jerry's explanation and orders him to start work at the bar while he runs off to finish getting dressed. Dyson arrives and asks Jerry for a "Whisky, the scottish kind please." Bo then walks to Dyson who tells her: "I've never seen something so beautiful in my life." Bo thanks Dyson and compliments him as well before Dyson asks "Can I offer you a free drink?" The two sit at the bar where Jerry continues to work. Bo asks for a "Whisky, the scottish kind. And make it a double." As Bo and Dyson make some small talk, Bo noting that she can have one drink and then she must talk to Hale, Jerry opens one of the vials that had been taken from Lauren's experiment and pours it into one of the glasses before handing them to Dyson and Bo who drink them as Jerry watches to be sure they do so.

Lauren, in the meantime, interrupts a lab technician and as she examines a sample takes a test tube from the counter and hides it in her lab coat before walking away. Going to another microscope, she disconnects the television camera attached to it and then examines what she took. After checking it, she makes a phone call as Isaac watches from nearby. When Lauren sees him, she tells the person on the phone, "I'll need those files" as she watches Isaac pass through a card-lock door and disappear.

At the Dal Riata, The Morrigan fawns over Hale warning: "If it wasn't punishable by death, I'd give you a taste Handsome." She then idly adds: "I do hope that you don't get murdered with all of the death threats. Finding your killer would be like finding a whore in a whore stack." Hale is unimpressed and warns: "If we are going to work together I need you be a lot less 'All about Eve' and a lot more 'Steel Magnolias' The Morrigan answers: "Which one is about the haircut that gives you cancer?" Hale finally tells her to leave and she does so, passing Bo in the crowd on her way to Hale. When Bo confronts Hale about The Morrigan, he diverts her questions and in doing so, Bo continues to ask the question she meant to about Lauren being missing. Hale answers: "I really do not need this today. Lauren came to me the other day asking about some time off to work on some other project." He tells Bo that he denied her the request and this does answer one question for Bo about what could have happened to Lauren. As the same time, a waiter asks The Morrigan if she would want something, but instead suggests: "The Ash might be a little peckish." She then places what appears to be a fly on one of the snacks before the waiter takes it to Hale. As Bo asks for some time to find Lauren, Hale agrees but only to the end of the day as he picks up the snack The Morrigan altered. The fly then crawls on Hale's neck and then is zapped by some kind of protective field around him, The Morrigan turning away in disgust as it does so. Bo then leaves Hale and he walks over to The Morrigan and tells her: "You should really try the hors d'oeuvres, they're generating quite the buzz" before slapping her on the rear and walking away.

As Bo enters another room, she discovers Dyson on the floor unconscious with Jerry the Bartender nearby who tells Bo that Dyson suddenly collapsed. Jerry then tells Bo that he called the paramedics and in the next moment they arrive and move to put Dyson on the stretcher they have with them. Bo looks at the two of them strangely asking: "Are you both Skunk Apes?" Bo then asks: "It's just that he's part Wanblee. Is that going to be a issue?" When one of the paramedics claims it will not be, Bo starts to confront them and as she does so Jerry ducks behind the bar just before the two paramedics pull out weapons and point them at Bo. Bo realizes that they are both human and threatens to call for help from the Fae in the next room, but Kenzi moves to attack one of the humans which diverts Bo's attention and she moves to protect her. In doing so, Bo knocks Kenzi to the floor unconscious which allows the kidnappers to take Dyson outside to the waiting black van. Bo attempts to stop them, but one of the kidnappers takes a shot at her and they escape with Dyson. Jerry then approaches Bo and asks: "Did they get away?" but Bo turns on him and knocks him out with one punch.

Returning from commercial, Trick tells Hale that they have been attacked by humans and they took Dyson with them. Hale orders the Dal Riata to be locked down, but The Morrigan overhears what has happened and tells one of her minions to have the Dark Fae Elders attend as soon as possible commenting: "The shit's about to get real." Bo is at that moment trying to get information out of Jerry, mainly by assaulting and threatening him. At first he claims to have no idea what she is talking about, but after Bo reveals that she saw him look for cover before the kidnappers took out their weapons, and both Trick and Hale threaten his life, he removes a vial from a pocket and drinks the contents. Before he dies moments later Jerry explains: "They have my wife. I had no choice." Hale's anger overcomes him and he leaves the room telling Trick that he knows what he must do. After they leave, Bo looks at the vial and then sees that it has Lauren's name on it, shocking her. Seeing Lauren's cell phone, she takes it and rushes from the Dal Riata.

Kenzi wakes up in another part of the Dal Riata to find Massimo hovering over her as she lays on a couch. He comments: "That's quite the smack your owner gave you." Kenzi tells him that Bo sis not her owner, and he snidely adds: "Of course, she was just saving your life. Some people are crazy about their pets." Kenzi attempts to defend herself against his comments, but he continues to play up all of sorts of doubts that have been inside of Kenzi for some time including: "Holding your friends back." Kenzi admits: "It's not easy being the only human on the attack squad, but I bring other things to the table." He continues to play upon Kenzi's insecurities with: "What if I told you you could bring the real thing to the table?" Kenzi is confused by what he says and then he adds: "Oh come on, you can't tell me that you haven't wanted to be one of us." Kenzi walks away from him and warns that he should not be where he is. He claims to have been concerned, but Kenzi tells him that: "It takes a con to know a con." He then asks Kenzi if she is hooked, but Kenzi's answer is: "I'll just wait for the movie thank you." After Kenzi threatens to scream for help, he leaves the room, Kenzi looking troubled and confused.

Bo has returned to Lauren's home to look for clues and finds Tamsin there instead. When Bo asks what Tamsin is doing there, she tries to explain that is there to look for evidence, but then reveals that she lives out of her truck since Lauren isn't there, she decided to take advantage of the place. Bo tells her that she doesn't care and Dyson has been kidnapped by humans. When Tamsin asks how that is possible, Bo gives her the vial with Lauren's name on it adding that the bartender at the Dal Riata poisoned Dyson and then himself, but she didn't get any answers before he died. Tamsin asks after looking at the vial: "This better not be your Lauren." When Bo tells her that it is, Tamsin answers: "Well, isn't that just a shit sandwich that eats like a meal." Bo then continues explaining that the humans hid themselves by using the same method that Lauren used when she was undercover in prison with Bo. Tamsin jokingly asks: "So one of your ex's took out the other?" Bo pauses and then admits: "Well, when you put it like that it sounds weird." Bo asks for Tamsin's help, but she asks how Bo knows that Dyson is still alive. Bo tries to explain that she knows, that she can feel that he is alive, but she cannot explain how she can. As this happens, Tamsin tries to have another drink, but almost collapses, Bo just managing to stop her from doing so. Tamsin pulls away and claims she is fine adding: "I've just been having all of my meals in liquid form lately." Bo pulls the bottle away from her and it smashes on the floor. Tamsin's mind seems to clear for a moment and she tells Bo that they have to look through the apartment and see if they can find a clue to why Lauren has "turned against us." Tamsin asks about Lauren's phone and Bo gives it to her saying that Dyson dropped it when he was taken. Bo then opens the drawer where Lauren left her pendant marking her as being owned by The Ash and Bo whispers: "Oh Lauren... No..." Tamsin then asks if Bo found something, but Bo tells her that she didn't and puts the pendant in her purse hiding it. Tamsin leaves the room adding to Bo that she should change because: "Things are going to get dirty." When Bo asks if Tamsin is up for the fight. Tamsin answers: "Humans took Dyson. I've never been fightier in my life."

Back at the Dal Riata, the assembled Fae, including the Elders, demand to know how it was possible for humans to attack, one asking how they managed to get by the enchantments protecting the Dal Riata. Another voice claims that they must have been helped "By that human the Succubus keeps." Hale attempts to defend Kenzi, noting that she saved Dyson in the battle with The Garuda by herself when all of the assembled Fae were hiding. However this only results in his words being dismissed. The Morrigan then enters the room calling out: "Friends, Elders, Noblemen... Shut the hell up and listen." The Morrigan then takes the floor and declares: "Hale and I have been trying to broker a peace. We've been trying to find a way to get the Light and the Dark to work together for a common good. Well, the need for such an alliance has finally come. But not with him." The assembled Fae murmur in agreement and she continues: "Too long have bleeding hearts like him stood by and watched humans believe that they are the superior beings on this planet. So much so that they had the hubris to plan an attack again the one true race. On our own turf and get away with it. His leadership allowed this attack to happen." As The Morrigan continues her speech, more and more of the assembled Fae turn to agree with her and then she reveals yet another test tube which she gives to Hale. She forces him to read what it says and he does so, saying Lauren's name which pushes the assembled mass of Fae further towards revenge and action rather than considered action at the urging of The Morrigan. She then calls for a "vote of no confidence in this fake Ash" which results in applause from the assembled Fae.

After another commercial break, Dyson is seen trapped in an arena outside of a complex of buildings. One of them appears to be some kind of observatory and the doors to the dome part slightly as a altered voice notes that he was strong enough to recover from the poison in only a half hour after he was given the antidote. What follows is a series of taunts from above which end with Dyson having to face the mortal enemy of all wolf-shifters, a Lupercus (Ed Martyr) which attacks him and the two battle under the watch of the one imprisoning them. Eventually Dyson manages to defeat the Lupercus and the battle ends, but Dyson has been struck across his chest and is bleeding severely. This battle ending after the events with Kenzi that follow below.

As this battle rages, Bo and Tamsin arrive at Tamsin's truck, Tamsin telling Bo that the "tech boys" have told her that the number Lauren has been calling is at a compound outside of the city. They then see that Tamsin's truck has been booted for being parked illegally. Tamsin works to remove the boot while Bo goes inside the truck to wait for her. While she does so, Bo discovers the Rune Glass that Tamsin possesses as well as photos and other evidence about her, taking a photograph of what she has found with her phone. Kenzi is still at the Dal Riata and Trick is shocked that she is still there. She tries to talk to him but Trick tells her that she needs to leave and go home and hide, promising "When the dust settles, I'll come and find you." Kenzi throws up her hands and starts to do so, but Bo calls her and tells Kenzi that she has sent her a picture and needs to know what it is. Kenzi tries to tell Bo that The Morrigan is trying to have all claimed humans declared as criminals, there is a vote against Hale, and they found something with Lauren's name on it as well. Bo begs Kenzi to leave the Dal Riata immediately and go somewhere safe, which Kenzi promises to do. Tamsin removes the boot from her truck and moments later the two drive away.

As Kenzi looks at the image that Bo sent her, Massimo appears behind Kenzi and tell her the he knows what she is looking at. When she asks him why he is still there, his answer is: "Because you are still here." Kenzi starts to leave saying: "Well every Fae and their dog wants me gone so... toodle-loo Wankhead." Once again he plays on Kenzi insecurities and asks: "Who are the Fae to tell you to leave? Especially after everything you have done for them?" Kenzi stops and tells him that he knows nothing about her, but he mentions her saving Dyson more than once, that she fought a Cherufe, and he claims it is not fair that "they are trying to push you out." He then plays on her fears once more saying that she fights with no gifts and still succeeds before turning away from Kenzi telling her: "But you have to go." Kenzi is silent for a moment and then tells him to stop. Kenzi then tells him: "I don't trust you. But my best friend is in trouble. You want to help me? Then tell me what this vial is." He refuses, telling Kenzi there is a price for doing so, that being a kiss from Kenzi. Kenzi does not believe him, but he insists that: "This kind of information requires this kind of tribute. I don't make the rules." Kenzi whispers: "Fine" and they kiss for a long moment before breaking it. Kenzi seems shocked and asks: "What the hell was that?" His answer is: "That? That was something" and then turns to walk away. Kenzi yells after him about the information she wants, but he insists that he needs a few minutes to get "the right information" for her and leaves. Elsewhere Dyson's battle ends and he calls out to his captor if this was what they wanted, but receives laughter in reply.

After yet another commercial, Tamsin and Bo arrive at the compound where Dyson is being held. As Tamsin comments that she has seen this before and it will not end well for the humans, She then tells Bo that if she was her, she would get out of town while she could. Bo refuses to leave and explains that the guards look like the people that took Dyson and Lauren is still missing. Tamsin insists that Lauren is as good as dead, but Bo refuses to accept this. Tamsin demands to know why Bo cares so much, but before Bo can answer her, a guard appears from behind them and takes a shot at Bo which Tamsin blocks, receiving a stomach wound from the bullet. When he turns to shoot Bo, Tamsin uses her powers on him, her face changing as she does so. The guard turns away from Bo and this allows her to knock him out. Tamsin then tells Bo: "This is the last time I do anything nice for you" before falling to the ground, bleeding severely from her stomach and is unresponsive to Bo.

At the Dal Riata, the vote concludes and Hale calls out the final vote as: "twenty-six for, and thirteen against. The Morrigan's motion is passed." The Morrigan then declares to the assembled Fae that: "From this day forward, all humans claimed or under the emply of the Fae in this territory will be considered terrorists, enemies of the one true state." As the Fae cheer her words, Hale leaves the room.

Kenzi is listening to Massimo as he explains that whomever holds the vial and the photo is trying to imprison Bo. Kenzi asks why, and his answer is: "To enslaved her? To kill her maybe? I don't know really." Hale then rushes into the room and asks Kenzi why she is still there, pushing Massimo aside who leaves in the next moment. Kenzi tries to explain that she believes that Tamsin is trying to hurt Bo, but Hale does not listen to what she is saying and tells her that she has to stop thinking about Bo and she has to go. Kenzi yells at Hale: "You keep saying that to me! Why does everyone keep saying that to me? We all used to be friends Hale!" Hale tells Kenzi: "Dammit Kenzi! You are not my friend! You have never been just a friend!" Kenzi is shocked by Hale's revelation and he continues: "If anything happens to you I won't be any good to anyone and right now I need to be better than I have ever been." Kenzi bursts into tears, slaps him on the chest, and rants: "Asshole. Stupid... Why couldn't you tell me that?" Hale explains: "Because I was scared. You have to go." As he says these words, The Morrigan enters the room with one of her guards who moves to take Kenzi. However Hale comes in-between and takes hold of Kenzi before placing handcuffs on her and saying to her: "Kenzi, claimed human of Bo the unaligned Succubus, from this day forth you will be known as an enemy of the state and will be immediately put under guard until such time as you are provided with a date of execution." Hale then kisses Kenzi to her surprise, slipping a vial into her dress before pulling back and commenting: "I always wondered what a terrorist tasted like." Kenzi then breaks free from Hale and runs off, The Morrigan's guard following her. Trick is elsewhere in his lair, gathering items and putting them in a shoulder bag, one of the last ones being the artwork of The Wanderer he was seen looking at inside a lock box. Picking up a hat, Trick then walks over to his fireplace and pulls a hidden lever which reveals a secret passageway that he vanishes into. Moments later, Kenzi arrives calling out for Trick, but there is no one there as The Morrigan's henchman arrives to take her away.

Lauren is in the lab and takes a swipe card from a lab coat and uses it to open the pass card protected door that Isaac used earlier in the episode. Outside, as Bo tries to get Tamsin to respond to her, Tamsin's phone rings and Bo answers it: "I'm busy, what?" On the phone is Massimo who replies: "Hello Blondie, it's the Druid. Just thought you would like to know I've secured the kiss from the best friend. The serum to tame the Succubus is ready." Bo answers: "Great. I'll be in touch" and hangs up before looking at Tamsin and asking: "Oh Tamsin... You stupid, stupid girl."

Lauren discovers a chamber which contains a large number of prison cells. Dyson calls out to her from within one of them and she rushes over to him. Dyson is bloody and injured and tells Lauren that he was drugged and then was forced to fight, but then is confused to why Lauren is there as well. Lauren tells Dyson to listen to her as she explains that there is a sample upstairs "from a mature Succubus. Her immune system... Is Bo here?" Isaac appears and asks: "Who is this Bo? How do I meet this Bo?" and stalks over to Lauren. She asks Isaac if he has "any idea what you are meddling with?" Isaac turns the question back on Lauren and asks the same of her. Then continues: "It wasn't supposed to be like this. I've wanted to tell you how long I have been planning this. Since I was a kid. Forty years they have been laughing at me, have you any idea how gratifying this is going to be?" Lauren tells Isaac: "You used my research to poison my friends. You lied to me." Isaac loses control and rants that it was his research and not Lauren's. Then becomes calm again as he admits: "But yeah, that's fair, I used you. I'll continue using you." Dyson attempts to break out of his cage, but cannot and Isaac comments: "You're magnificent. I can't wait to be like you! It's going to be fun!" Isaac then leads Lauren towards another of the cages, claiming that he wants her to understand how important "our work is" before placing her inside one of them were a Fae woman sits on the floor. He then tells Lauren, "We're going to do great things together, you and I.... Lauren. I never lied to you about that" and locking the door.

After a commerical break, Trick exits an underground passageway and walks through a barbershop towards the outside. However, moments after stepping outside to men in suits take hold of him and then drag Trick to the trunk of a car which drives off, having kidnapped Trick.

The final scene of the episode beings with Lauren trying to talk to Dyson, telling him that she is sorry and that she had no idea what Isaac was doing. Dyson tells Lauren: "He's been hunting us. Torturing us. Making us fight each other like dogs! Hale told you not to go!" Lauren's answer is: "He lied to me!" Dyson's reply is a calm: "This is why you cannot leave the Fae Lauren. Why you can never leave." The Fae woman in the chamber with Lauren asks if she has seen her husband, explaining that his name is Jerry and they wanted him to do something for them or they would kill her. Dyson assures her that "Jerry did fine. Looks like you are going to live." Then another woman's voice comes from nearby and asks: "What about my daughter? She's safe? My daughter?" Across the hall a woman appears and Dyson is shocked to realize he knows who she is and calls out her name in confusion: "Aife?"

The last image of the episode shows a closeup of Aife at the door of the cell looking disheveled and confused, almost insane, not understanding what is happening around her.

Questions in this Episode

  • When Lachlan was given the position of The Ash, there was no large ceremony. All that was shown consisted of his being on a throne and having a crown placed on his head. Hale was to have an inauguration at the Dal Riata which does not appear to follow previous events in the series. As well, Lachlan was involved in a Stag Hunt for the title of Ash, but it appears that Hale never did so. In fact, the reasons for him being selected as the Ash are completely unclear.
  • Through Trick's being blunt and harsh with Hale, did that alter his personalty and ability to think clearly? He seemed to be overwhelmed easily by The Morrigan when she took control and did not attempt any real defence, being shouted down quickly.
  • Did Hale actually ever become the Ash? It did not appear so in the episode as there was a vote of non-confidence in him. If this is true, is this why The Morrigan was able to control the situation?
  • Is The Morrigan actually the force behind Isaac and all of the Fae killings? Is the entire event a means to bring all of the Fae under her control? There are too many signs that point to this being possible in that she seemed to be not surprised when Dyson was taken, she had the vial with Lauren's hand writing on it as well. The entire event seems like a setup.
  • What exactly was the gift Hale's father gave him? It really wasn't explained save that it seemed to stop The Morrigan's attempt to poison him. What other protect did it give him? As well, is it possible that Hale somehow transferred this protection to Kenzi when he kissed her after she was arrested?
  • When Tamsin talked to Bo in her bathroom, what she suggesting that Bo was under surveillance at home and elsewhere?
  • Is Tamsin in love with Bo or is something else going on that is linked to the events in Fae-ge Against The Machine when the Dawning game seemed to make Bo and Tamsin kiss?
  • As Lauren was using a microscope and looking at a slide sample, how is it exactly that an entire blood vessel or heart valve or other organic structure was visible? More importantly, how was it that it was functioning? This is not how these things work.
  • A good question was asked by the Fae Elder, how was it that humans were able to get past the enchantments on the Dal Riata? Assuming that they only had some protection from Lauren's research, and that was limited, someone had to allow them to pass. Could that have been The Morrigan?
  • It has been seen in much of the series that many Fae are in fact racist to one level or another. The Morrigan's declaration of the Fae being the One True Race, seems to project that Dark Fae, or at least The Morrigan herself, are racist in some way. This also seems to be present in a large proportion of the Light Fae in that many of them seemed to also agree with The Morrigan's words.
  • How is it that a forced vote can make such a dramatic change in Fae politics? Nothing in the series to this point has ever suggested that this was a possibility, not with the differences between the Light and Dark Fae.
  • What exactly did Hale slip to Kenzi at the end of the episode? Could this be something to make her Fae? Or reveal that she is Fae?
  • What is the purpose of the "Serum to control the Succubus?" Is it that Bo loses her powers? That she is mind controlled?
  • How did Aife come to be captured by Isaac? The last time we saw her, she was being carried away by a Thrall at the end of the first season finale Blood Lines.
  • Is Aife still insane or is her apparent confusion because of her imprisonment?
  • What is the purpose to Isaac's plans?
  • Is he a pawn or is control? Is he The Wanderer or is that yet another threat that faces Bo?

Answers in this Episode

  • Trick describes Hale as being his protégé.
  • According to Trick, Dark Fae are not supposed to attend Light Fae inaugurations. Hale invited The Morrigan to his as another attempt to bridge the gap between the two sides.
  • Dyson reports to Hale that they had processed eighteen Fae bodies, both Light Fae and Dark Fae from the field they discovered in the previous episode so far, but there appeared to be many more. Evidence also pointed to all of them having been tortured and as well some of the victims were missing organs.
  • Hale's father did not appear for his inauguration, but did give him a gift to protect him from harm which saved Hale from an assassination attempt by The Morrigan.
  • Bo mentions being attacked by a Morragh to Tamsin. This happened in the First Season episode Vexed.
  • Tamsin is the one that tells Bo that she did not kill Riley as she and Dyson found proof. Based on Bo's surprise, it is likely that Dyson never told Bo what they found.
  • When Tamsin left Bo's bathroom she left her gun on the floor, meaning that she was likely unarmed for the rest of the episode.
  • According to Trick, the last human that tried to start a union for claimed humans was Jimmy Hoffa. This was likely a joke, but in this series you never really know.
  • Bo recognized the scent of Skunk Apes on the fake paramedics from when Lauren used the scent to hide that she was human in Caged Fae.
  • Wanblees also appeared in Caged Fae and any one with Fae medical experience would have known the possible dangers involved with Skunk Apes being near one. This was another hint to Bo that something was wrong.
  • Tamsin revealed that she lives out of her truck, meaning that she does not have a place to live.
  • There is a connection between Bo and Dyson that becomes present in this episode which seems to allow Bo to know that Dyson is at least alive, if not where he is.
  • A Lupercus in the Lost Girl universe is the mortal enemy of all wolf-shifters and has been so for, according to Dyson, thousands of years. It seems that they are both similar in that they are wolf-like, but the Lupercus seems to be more of an UnderFae than Fae- like.
  • The vote held by the Fae accomplished three things. Hale was rejected as the Ash, all claimed humans are to be treated as terrorists and sentenced to death, and, apparently, The Morrigan is now the leader of both Light Fae and Dark Fae.
  • The final vote was twenty-six for and thirteen against.
  • Kenzi faught a Cherufe during the episode The Girl Who Fae'd With Fire.
  • The Morrigan referred to the Fae as the "One True Race" and the "One True State" in her speeches.
  • When Hale arrests Kenzi he formally charges her with "Kenzi, claimed human of Bo the unaligned Succubus, from this day forth you will be known as an enemy of the state and will be immediately put under guard until such time as you are provided with a date of execution."
  • Apparently the Rune Glass holds a means to "tame the Succubus" what that means is unclear.
  • Isaac somehow captured Aife, Bo's mother. The time she has been imprisoned is unclear.
  • At the end of the episode, Tamsin is shot, Bo is trying to save her. Kenzi is alone with The Morrigan's henchman as she moves to capture her while Hale is with The Morrigan at the Dal Riata. Dyson, Lauren and Suneetha are imprisoned with Aife by Isaac. Trick has been kidnapped by unknown persons.
