and Michael Rosenthal
Bo is attacked by a zombie and with Dyson, Tamsin and Acadia, goes to find who was responsible for the attack. They discover that Massimo did not die having survived due to possessing the Twig of Zamora. Kenzi is visited by her mother and cousin who Hale contacted. Her mother attempts to reconcile with Kenzi, and then when Hale proposes to Kenzi, they ruin the moment for Kenzi and Hale. In spite of this, Kenzi decides to accept Hale’s proposal. Before Kenzi can do so, Massimo attacks Kenzi and Hale, delivering a fatal blow to Hale. Kenzi offers her life to save Hale, but Bo refuses because doing so would kill Kenzi. Bo attempts to explain to Dyson about Rainer, but fails to do so and their relationship falls apart. In the aftermath, Tasmin makes a move on Dyson. Vex visits Trick and it is revealed that Vex was responsible for the seed that Trick possessed being stolen. Rainer, as his curse has been lifted, is being rewritten into history and when Tamsin sees an image of him, tells Bo that Rainer was not the one that hired her to find Bo.
The episode opens with a series of flashbacks to earlier episodes which include: Bo leaving with Huginn and Muninn to confront Rainer, while in a voice-over Dyson tells Lauren that they should have protected Bo, and Lauren replying that Bo doesn't want to see either of them. Then two short scenes are shown of Bo discovering that Massimo was human and then Massimo plunging into the furnace to his seeming death. Kenzi and Hale are then shown kissing after they admitted their love for one another with Hale and Kenzi in a voice-over telling each other they have "always been here." Bo is then shown dealing the death blow to the Una Mens with Rainer looking on in the previous episode while Trick in a voice over asks Bo not to do so. Then the Origin Seed is shown gathering the powers of the Una Mens. Bo is then shown talking to Tamsin, asking Tamsin if the evil she met could be Bo's father and Tamsin replying "that thing would have done anything to find his ideal mate. Including if it meant creating her himself."
The episode opens with Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) offering Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) a pair of movies to watch, one being 'Zombies got the Blues' and the other 'Sexy Vampire Doctor went back to College because he lost his way.' Tamsin thinks about the choices and then answers: "Is that it?" Kenzi offers Jerry Maguire, but Tamsin clarifies her question and asks if the situation with Bo and the Wanderer is just... over. Kenzi replies that she doesn't know and that Bo "locked me out." Kenzi then starts on a rant over she being Bo's best friend for four years as Bo (Anna Silk) approaches Kenzi from behind. Kenzi tells Tamsin that she knows every heartbreak, every tear and "just like that I'm out. So if you wouldn't mind I'd like to forget about it all and watch some zombie movies okay?" Bo calls out: "I like zombies!" Kenzi is slightly miffed and asks: "Taking a break from athletic shower sex post-slaughtering the Una Mens?" Bo tries to explain to Kenzi that she has been "meaning to talk to you", but Kenzi asks "what about Dyson and Lauren?" and Bo replies: "One day." Kenzi rolls her eyes in disbelief which makes Bo ask: "What do you want me to say?" Kenzi asks: "I want you to say you're not brainwashed. I what you to say that I still have a best friend!" Bo tries to reassure Kenzi that she "still has a best friend and no, I am not brainwashed. And as far as Dyson and Lauren go, it's not like it was ever perfect. Dyson gave his love away and then he became an a-hole like forever." Kenzi interjects: "You called him Mopey Dick." Bo continues: "And then I broke his heart with Lauren and now she's all buddy-buddy with The Morrigan." Tamsin comments: "All bad things" and then Bo continues: "With Rainer, I finally feel like I provided something to a relationship. I broke his curse. We want the same things it's bigger than love." Throughout all of Bo's assertions, Kenzi does not really believe what Bo is telling her. Bo then adds: "And I'm sorry if I locked you out Kenzi, I just needed some time." Bo then picks up a bootleg DVD of Jerry Maguire and while holding it between herself and Kenzi continues: "You complete me." Tamsin then breaks in and tells Bo that Hale asked Kenzi to move in with him, but Kenzi insists that she doesn't know that, and all that she does know is that Hale has told her that he wants to talk to her and it is important, which Kenzi calls "terrifying." Bo then asks: "Are you leaving me?" Kenzi replies: "Sucks when it happens to you huh?" Bo looks shocked and confused, but Kenzi hugs her and tells Bo that she: "Had me at a-hole. You had me at a-hole" which makes Bo smile. After the hug ends, Kenzi tells Bo: "Now, go downstairs. Snacks need drinks have I taught you nothing?" Bo replies: "So much. I'll be right back." Bo goes down into the kitchen and looks through the fridge as someone enters behind her, shuffling as they do so. Bo hears them and turns to see what appears to be a zombie approaching her. Taking a long knife, Bo thrusts it through the zombie's chest, but to no effect. Bo comments: "This is usually the part where you die" and a moment later there is the sound of a blade moving through the air and the zombie's neck is sliced through and it falls to the floor revealing Acacia (Linda Hamilton) who greets Bo with: "And you must be Bo."
After the opening credits, we return to Bo as she watches Tamsin shove Acacia against a post and cry out: "You're supposed to be dead!" Acacia replies: "What can I say? I'm just a lucky girl!" Tamsin checks Acacia's right hand and finds that her hand had been severed but a new one had been attached there. Acacia explains that Massimo had "grown a new one onto my stump." Bo asks Acacia how she lost her hand and is told that "The Wanderer had his crows cut it off. Because my protégé here didn't deliver you as quickly as he wanted." Bo seems shocked and tells Acacia that "Huginn and Muninn betrayed Rainer. They could have been acting alone." Acacia asks: "So you two are on a first name basis now?" Tamsin tells Acacia that Bo is Rainer's boyfriend and Acacia's reaction is to begin to leave and comment: "Annnnd I'm out." Tamsin stops her from leaving, but Acacia explains: "This wasn't a social call" and Acacia explains she is a revenant hunter instead of a bounty hunter and that "it was a lucky coincidence that someone was trying to kill your friend here" referring to Bo. Bo asks what a revenant is and Tamsin explains that it is a dead Fae risen from the dead to settle old scores. She also adds: "Very effective. Acacia and I used to use them all of the time." Tamsin examines the body and finds on it a Wanderer card and shows it to both Bo and Acacia. Tamsin angrily tells Bo: "We need to talk to your boy-toy now" but Bo tells Tamsin that Rainer left "late last night" and claimed that Rainer went to the battlefields to pay respect to the dead. Tamsin replies: "Yeah, or to reanimate them." Bo insists that Tamsin is wrong, but Tamsin confronts Bo and asks what Bo really knows about Rainer. Bo's answer is that she broke his curse and that "he's a good guy." Acacia asks: "How?" Bo insists that she would know if Rainer was trying to kill her. Tamsin looks through a book and then slams it to the table as she tells Bo: "Let's see. Rainer right? Nothing. These books have every moment of our history in them and he is nowhere to be found." Tamsin again demands to know where Rainer is and after a long look between Bo, Tamsin and Acacia, Bo turns away, takes her coat and tells them they are the experts and so they need to find out who is raising the dead. Tamsin takes the cut-off revenant head as Bo starts the search to prove that Rainer wasn't behind the attempt to kill her. As the three leave, Kenzi enters the room and moans: "Guys! Unbelievable! Seriously, would I leave a dead body on the floor if her boyfriend was coming over?"
The scene then switches to Trick (Richard Howland) who is in his lair and looking at the image of The Wanderer as a winged horse that he had been looking at in the past several times. As he does so, Vex (Paul Amos) enters and Trick hides the painting away before he turns his attention to Vex. After greeting Vex and thanking him for visiting, Vex asks Trick why he isn't out among the Fae "restoring the faith" and "spreading the word that the Una Mens are dead." Trick replies: "Still drafting my condolences." When Vex comments that Trick's answer wasn't what he was expecting from the acting leader of the Light Fae, Trick replies: "I used to be a King. I didn't do that well either I'm afraid." Vex laughs at this saying that everyone knows the tales of Trick's "long and glorious reign." Trick replies: "History is written by the victors." Vex tells Trick: "History is written in blood" and then recites "And so he rode on his noble steed and cut down the vile insurgent thus ending the rebellion and bringing peace to the land." Trick is silent for a long moment and then says: "No matter what I did. Rainer always had an answer. Always ten steps ahead. His gift is foresight. I had no choice but to use my blood. I wrote that his armies betrayed him." Vex asks: "He was evil wasn't he?" Trick replies: "Just defiant. Like my Granddaughter." Vex replies with a smile: "Yeah, well, I can't argue with that." Trick continues: "There is real evil in the world Vex. Real terrors. The Garuda was evil." Trick sighs and looks at the artwork he had been looking at before and sighs: "The Priapus. That's real evil." Trick then offers the art to Vex who looks at it and comments in disbelief: "The Priapus? Come on, bat winged horse? Honestly? You've got a better chance at meeting Godzilla!" Trick sighs: "Should have been a better King." Vex pauses, then tells Trick: "Well, who among us haven't regrets." Vex then admits to Trick that he betrayed his own family to save his own life. Trick tells Vex that his father was one of the bravest men that Trick had ever known. Vex does not believe this, saying that his father was only a fisherman and that Trick could not possibly know him. Trick reveals: He was my best General. He was a hero." Vex does not believe this, telling Trick: "No. My father believed that kids should be seen and not heard. He never liked my jokes. He never liked me at all. I never knew my father. And that suited him just fine." Trick hands Vex a flask and asks: "What do you want to know?"
Meanwhile, Kenzi is at home, cleaning the long knife that Bo had used to try and kill the revenant who had attacked her. There is a knock at the door and calls out: "Hey hopefully not a dead dude but an absoulious sex machine!" But when Kenzi opens the door she sighs: "Oh my God Dimitri (Ian Matthews)." who is her cousin. When Kenzi asks what he is doing there, he answers: "We came to see you." He then asks about a "69 yellow Camero" and if it is Kenzi's. Kenzi says it isn't her's and then Dimitri tells someone on the phone he is holding: "Eh. Call it off." When Kenzi asks what Dimitri means by we, a woman (Linda Kash) then appears from around the corner which shocks Kenzi and all she can do is whisper: "Mom."
Elsewhere, Bo, Tamsin and Acacia arrive at a place that Tamsin calls: "A place that people go to when they don't want to be found." Acacia adds: "Or to find someone to carry out their dirty work." Bo again insists that Rainer was not responsible for the attack, but Acacia is unconvinced of this. Acacia asks Bo: "Tell me, what's the weather like in Rainer-land? Dark and stormy? Sunny and shady?" Bo warns Acacia to back off and Tamsin asks that they stop fighting an focus on finding "The Cult of the Dead" so they can find some answers. As they walk through the crowds, there are screams and the crowd parts to reveal another revenant is approaching them. Acacia comments: "Oh look, your boyfriend sent a grunting telegram." Bo again tells Acacia that this is not Rainer's doing and turns to face the revenant as it points at Bo.
Returning from a commercial break, Bo is about to face off against the revenant. She tosses her knife into the air and then says: "Heads it is" as she moves towards it. However, before she can do anything, Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) appears and dispatches the revenant, ending the threat. Dyson turns to Bo and comments: "Sorry I'm late. Traffic was a bitch."
Kenzi in the meantime is trying to deal with her cousin and her mother visiting. Dimitri asks if Kenzi needs a new fridge, telling Kenzi that he can: "Get you a good price on this vending machine." Kenzi warns Dimitri to stop selling her stuff and Kenzi's mother insists that Dimitri is only trying to help, but Kenzi tells her mother: "Last time he tried to help someone stole my identity." Dimitri claims this was a misunderstanding and then warns Kenzi that if she receives phone calls about bad cheques it might be a good idea to leave town which upsets Kenzi greatly. When Kenzi's mother asks them to stop yelling, Kenzi reminds them that: "All we do in this family is yell." Kenzi then asks her mother where she has been, but before she can answer Hale (K.C. Collins) enters the room. In a panic, Kenzi rushes over and tries to explain to Hale that her family just showed up and she adds: "I'm nothing like them. She's only my mother by birth." Hale then tells Kenzi: "It's okay. I invited them!" In an outraged voice Kenzi answers: "You did this to me?"
In the meantime, Acacia comments to Tamsin: "Harvey is going to be happy to see us." Tamsin replies: "Well. I hunted down his mom like a dog and delivered her to hecuba prison so..." Acacia tells Tamsin to wait outside. As this happens, Bo thanks Dyson for being there for her, but Dyson explains: "Well, my partner called." Tamsin then interrupts Bo and Dyson, telling Bo that she and Dyson are going to go talk to the "locals" and that Bo should go with Acacia. After Bo leaves, Dyson sarcastically thanks Tamsin as they go in another direction.
Acacia and Bo enter a warehouse where Acacia comments: "So you are the one that convinced my Tamsin she could be more." When Bo asks: "Something wrong with that?" Acacia replies: "Absolutely nothing." Bo comments that Tamsin seems to love Acacia, but warns Acacia that if she gets on the wrong side of her that she will: "Not leave enough Chi in you to turn and cough." Acacia tells Bo: "All I did was side with The Wanderer because I had no choice. Sound familiar?" Before the conversation can continue, there is a voice from the darkness that comments: "Well, well, if it isn't my favourite ball busting over accessorized Valkyrie. So when did you trade in bitchy and blonde for brunette with bouncy Christmas hams?" Acacia greets him as Harvey (Scott McCord) and wonders if he is really still mad at Tamsin for: "Hog-tying your mother cause your mother is really fat and she kind of had no choice." Harvey replies that should Acacia see Tamsin that she tell Tamsin that: "she can make it up to me with a little spit and elbow grease." Acacia then slams Harvey's head to a tabletop and then places the revenant head there as well, telling Harvey that she wants to know: "Who owns the head Harvey." When Acacia reaches for her sword, Bo tells her: "I have this" and then uses her powers in an attempt to make Harvey answer the question. When Bo says her name, Harvey seems to be aware of who she is, and knows that Bo is a Succubus. When Bo asks him to give her the answers, he replies: "I would do anything for you and I'd do anything to you." Bo releases Harvey and then he takes some blood from the severed head, pouring it into a glass and then goes about tasting the blood in a fashion similar to that of a wine taster. He explains that the only way to gain power over a revenant is to drink their blood. It also can tell who has power over a revenant at that moment. As Harvey continues to sample the blood, Bo tells him to finish before she becomes ill and he finally tells Bo: "Yeah. It ain't one of mine." When Bo presses for more information, Harvey answers: "This dead belongs to her" meaning Acacia.
After yet another commercial, Bo is confronting Acacia over the revenant who Harvey has claimed was sent by Acacia. Acacia pushes Bo away telling her: "Hands off the leather." Bo replies: "That's my line." Harvey then gleefully cries out: "Catfight!" and rushes away to get a camera as Acacia and Bo continue to face off. Acacia claims that she might have killed the revenant, but she didn't raise him from the dead. As Bo moves to attack Acacia, Harvey calls out for Bo to" Pull her hair!" as Bo angrily tells Acacia she is "nothing but a hired killer" and "this evil shit is right up your alley." Acacia throws Bo against a wall and tells Bo she knows nothing about her, adding: "If I was here to kill anybody they would be dead already. I am that good." Harvey continues to film the fight, calling out: "Rip her shirt open!"
As the fight continues, Tamsin and Dyson are walking together, Tamsin asks how Dyson is and he replies: "Never better." Tamsin asks if Dyson is lying to her, but Dyson only answers: "Never better" and Tamsin replies: "Well, if it is any consolation, I think she's crazy." A homeless man (Adam Kenneth Wilson) calls out "Crazy!" and they turn to him. He then continues: "Help me? There can be no help for me. But there may be help for you. Long ago there were three sisters. And they were all magic but only one survived because she could control the dead. She took her like a shirt from a clothesline. Dead and alive, dead and alive. She can control the dead. She is dead and alive. She took her from me!" The homeless man then talks gibberish as Tamsin and Dyson look on.
Tamsin then enters the warehouse where she finds Bo and Acacia in a headlock with Harvey calling out: "Punch her in the tits!" Tamsin asks what is going on, to which Bo and Acacia reply together: "Nothing!" and then stop fighting. Tamsin tells them they found a lead "Someone named Laveau." Acacia takes the severed revenant head while Bo takes the camera from Harvey, throws it to the floor and then crushes it under her heel, telling him: "Send me the bill" as she leaves.
Kenzi is in her bedroom alone when her mother enters and tries to talk to her, asking why Kenzi is "so mad." Kenzi tells her mother: "Are you seriously going to ask me that?" Her mother offers a set of earrings that she says Kenzi loves, but Kenzi will have none of it. Kenzi reminds her mother: "Your boyfriend ruined my life" and her mother attempts to explain that Bodgen is a "complicated man" but Kenzi will have none of this. Her mother admits that she made mistakes, drinking too much when Kenzi was a child being one of them. She tells Kenzi that she should have protected Kenzi, but again, Kenzi will have none of this. Her mother claims that she thought she "needed a man" because she could not "stand on my own." Kenzi replies: "I was a little girl mom and I was living on the streets because you chose that bastard over me. Do you know how long it took me to feel normal again?" When her mother claims to know, Kenzi tells her: "No. You don't know. Before I met Bo I lived off what I could steal and I... I was in some situations not only that I am ashamed of, but I can't even believe that I survived." Kenzi's mother then claims that she ended her relationship with her boyfriend six months ago. She then claims that she did not know how to find Kenzi, but when Hale called, she decided that she needed to see Kenzi. After her mother tells Kenzi that she has "the strength of your father" Kenzi does hug her mother and tells her that she was worried about her and that her mother did the right thing to leave her boyfriend. Kenzi's mother is relieved and tells Kenzi that they will "celebrate tonight" and as she leaves, she asks Kenzi to "put on something nice. So much black. You could be a very pretty girl." After her mother leaves, Kenzi picks up the earrings and seems to be thinking about something.
Elsewhere, Bo, Dyson, Tamsin and Acacia are on their way to see Laveau. Acacia asks Tamsin to help her understand what has happened with Bo and Rainer: "Okay, so help me out here. The Wanderer gets off the train and suddenly starts playing house." Tamsin says nothing and Acacia asks what's wrong. Tamsin explains that since Rainer has returned she is beginning to remember things such as she gave Rainer's soul to the Blood King instead of taking it to Valhalla. Acacia is shocked that Tamsin was the one that put Rainer on the train, but Tamsin claims that she "helped make him The Wanderer." Acacia tells Tamsin they must kill The Wanderer saying: "That man is bad news. Just because he is boning sugar snatch doesn't mean that he's going to leave you be after what you've done." Acacia then whispers: "Rainer's revenants are after you!"
The group arrives at a trailer around which are hanging several bodies with their heads cut off. Bo calls the scene "charming" and asks who Laveau is. Laveau (Marci T. House) leaves her trailer at that moment and claims to be a Voodoo Priestess and adds: "My gifts are at your service Succubus." When Bo asks how Laveau knows her, Laveau claims: "Everybody knows you girl. You took out the high council council of hate and are involved with a man of mystery." Dyson asks: "What do you know of it?" Laveau replies: "I know you felt that crazy kind of love wolf. I've seen into your animal heart. But when are you going to see its prison is totally of your own making?" Bo stops the conversation and places the revenant head on a table, adding: "We're got a head in a bag and we'd like to find out who sent it to kill me." Laveau laughs that Bo wants her to "wake the dead" and then Acacia loses control of the hand that Massimo attached for her, it taking the sword from her back. Acacia curses: "Massimo told me he made this from scratch! Dirty lying son of a grave robbing..." and then she swings wildly at Bo, Dyson and Tamsin as Laveau continues to laugh.
Following yet another commercial, Acacia is under control and Bo confronts Laveau. Laveau tells Bo that she has something she wants and when Bo asks what that is, Laveau explains: "The Devil's horse, the Priapus is coming and I need to protect myself. When the prize of the five was all made dead their powers was sown into one. And I wants it." Bo has no idea what Laveau is talking about and is told that what Laveau wants is "the seed" referring to the Origin Seed that was once in Trick's possession. Dyson moves around behind Laveau and knocks her out. Bo looks at Dyson and he offers to take Laveau's feet as Bo takes hold of her as well.
As this is going on, Kenzi, her mother, cousin and Hale are having dinner together. Hale compliments Kenzi's mother on her cooking and she says it was so good because Kenzi helped, Kenzi commenting: "Easy mom. Baby steps." Kenzi's mother tells Hale that Kenzi will be a "very good wife" which shocks Kenzi and makes Hale wince. Having his hand forced by Kenzi's mother, Hale takes Kenzi's hand and tells her that he would not: "feel right doing this without asking for your mother's blessing." Hale drops to one knee and then places Kenzi's hand over his heart and explains: "Feel my heart Kenzi. Whenever I am around you it loses control. The moment we met and I saw who you are through those ridiculously beautiful blue eyes I knew you were the one. Nobody makes me laugh like you do. Nobody makes me want to be a better man. No one does the exact opposite of everything I say like you do. Little mama..." Hale then reveals a ring box and asks Kenzi: "Will you marry me?" Before Kenzi can answer, her cousin's cellphone rings and he answers it, which makes Kenzi shout: "Seriously?" When Kenzi's cousin asks Hale if Bodgen "can expect his money tomorrow?" Kenzi is confused and Hale explains: "Well your father wanted to borrow some startup money." Kenzi tells Hale: "The man is not my father." Kenzi then turns to her mother, outraged that she lied to her. Hale tells Kenzi that "it isn't a big deal" but Kenzi is furious and tells Hale to "stay out of this" as she tells her mother and cousin to get out. Hale is devastated as he closes the ring box, believing that Kenzi will never marry him now.
Elsewhere, Bo and Dyson have brought Laveau to Harvey and asks for his help to free Acacia of her control. Laveau then awakes and Harvey helps her to her feet, commenting as he does: "I guess your boys didn't get what we need baby?" There is the sound of hammering at the doors and then in the windows can be seen many revenants trying to enter the building and attack Bo and Dyson under Laveau's control. As this goes on, Harvey tells Laveau: "Even though you are dead you are the hottest bitch I've ever seen!" Harvey tells Bo there is no escape and Laveau demands that Bo give them the Origin Seed, Bo then pulls off a scarf that Laveau is wearing and it is revealed that her head has been attached to a body that isn't actually hers. Bo figures out that Laveau is the head revenant and then cuts Laveau's head from her body as she tries to run away. The other revenants continue to enter the building and approach Bo, Dyson and Harvey. Bo sees this and having no other choice drinks the blood from Laveau's head before handing the head to Harvey telling him: "She's all yours" and walking towards the oncoming horde of revenants and calling out "Be at peace!" which causes the revenants to collapse to the floor and are no longer a threat. Bo then asks Dyson: "Please tell me you have a mint."
Kenzi is in the midst of throwing her mother and cousin out. She gives her mother back the earrings and does not want to hear her mother's explanation for what has just happened. When her mother moves to strike Kenzi, telling her that she should have "not been so defiant," Kenzi stops her hand in mid-strike and then tells her mother: "You know, I always thought you were a victim. I always thought you were scared but you aren't scared. You're just a coward who doesn't value herself so you cannot value your own children. Goodbye." After Kenzi's mother leaves, her cousin tells Kenzi: "Listen. You and this guy. He's good. Don't call it off." Kenzi takes his cell phone and then pushes him out the door without another word and closes the door.
Dyson is at the Dal Riata, sitting at the bar and drinking as Bo approaches him and asks: "So you want to talk about it?" Dyson tells Bo that he doesn't but she asks that he be honest with her. Dyson tells Bo: "At least with Lauren I knew she cared, but this Wanderer..." Bo interrupts telling Dyson his name is Rainer. Dyson continues that he knows nothing about him and "neither do you." Dyson continues that Bo does not know if "he is here to get back at Trick for cursing him?" Bo replies: "You have every right to be hurt." Dyson looks away and answers: "I will always always be there for you I will always stand by you and help you fight the bad guy but if this... Rainer... if he turns out to be the bad guy... I don't think I can help you with that." Bo is shocked, asking: "You can't mean that. You and I have always been more than just lovers." Dyson tells Bo that he knows this, but then asks: "What are we now?" Bo does not answer that question and replies: "This whole destiny thing is hard to understand, believe me I am having trouble with it too." Dyson reminds Bo: "The man kidnapped you" but she insists that Rainer did not and when Dyson asks "What was it like?" Bo again avoids the question, only saying: "It is a long story." When Dyson looks away from Bo, she tells him that she would have stood by him and when Dyson completes the sentence with "when you were in love with me" Bo answers: "You cannot always choose your path." Dyson again looks away as he takes a drink and tells Bo: "You seem to." Bo hesitates and then leaves Dyson alone at the bar where he continues to drink.
In Trick's lair, he and Vex are still talking, Trick telling Vex about one of his father's great triumphs where he stood on his horse, threw his sword, and then used his Mesmer powers to force a soldier to be unable to defend himself, Trick calling it "legendary." A shot of some of Trick's books is shown along with an odd sound as the books move with no one touching them. Vex asks what happened and Trick explains that Rainer is being written back into history. Vex thanks Trick for telling him about his father and then moves to leave telling Trick that has "an important engagement." Trick calls out to Vex and asks him: "The seed. The sixth Una Mens seed. It's missing. Someone's taken it from me." Vex turns to Trick: "And of course you think I have something to do with it." Trick asks Vex if he did, but Vex does not answer and turns away once more. Trick calls out to him: "It's not too late Vex. I see the good in you. I see your father in you. Whoever has that seed has no idea what kind of power it can unleash. You can stop more suffering than anyone has ever known." Vex looks back at Trick and replies: "You see good in me yeah? At least that makes one of us." Vex then turns and rushes off leaving Trick behind who can only call out Vex's name and tell him "Don't be a fool!"
Elsewhere, Tamsin is walking with Acacia,who tells Tamsin: "It's nice to have been working with you again baby girl." Tamsin then confronts Acacia, telling her that she knows that no one hired her to track down the revenants. Tamsin tells Acacia that she knows that all of this was a plan to get Tamsin and her friends on the same side so "we would take The Wanderer out." Acacia tells Tamsin: "You know the things he is capable of. You know the things he's done." Tamsin replies that she "isn't a killer anymore." Acacia reminds Tamsin that The Wanderer took her hand and Tamsin tells Acacia: "If Rainer is what I think he is, then I will be the first to slit his throat, but I am going to do it right this time I have to make sure." Acacia asks: "What are you going to do Tamsin? Go out and find yourself a little wolf? Settle down and squeeze out a couple of puppies?" Tamsin then starts to walk away but Acacia stops her and warns that Massimo is "up to something big." When Tamsin tells her that Massimo is dead, Acacia replies: "And you and I both know dead don't always mean dead" and then after kissing Tamsin on the cheek she walks away.
Bo is pacing at home as Tamsin enters. Bo attempts to explain about Rainer, saying that she has questions too, but she "cannot ignore how I feel" and that "sometimes you just have to go for it right?" A book on a nearby table opens and they go over to look at it together. An image of Rainer appears on a blank page there and Tamsin asks: "Who's the hottie?" Bo tells Tamsin that the image is of Rainer who she calls Tamsin's boss. Tamsin looks at Bo and tells her: "That's not my boss."
Another commercial break and we return to Hale looking at the ring he was offering to Kenzi earlier in the episode as he attempted to ask her to marry him. Kenzi enters the room and calls out: "Got to hand it to you rich boy you know how to pick the bling." Hale attempts to apologize to her, but Kenzi approaches Hale and asks him if they should slow down a little as they have "so much time Hale. We have all of the time in the world. And I just don't want to be my mother. I don't want to rush into things and feel trapped and lose... me. I promised myself I would never do that." Hale replies: "You aren't letting me down easy... Are you?" Kenzi replies: "Are you crazy? Do you really think that I would let the best most amazing wonderful man I have ever met slip through my stupid stubborn fingers?" Kenzi then holds Hale close and kisses him.
Bo is still looking at the book as Kenzi runs in and yells at Bo before showing her Hale's engagement ring that she is wearing. Kenzi tells Bo: "Yes, but I haven't said yes yet." Bo is happy for Kenzi and Kenzi is amazed that she is "even considering it" and must be crazy, but Bo tells Kenzi that she isn't, before she asks if Hale is upstairs. Kenzi stops Bo by calling out: "No pants! No pants!" Bo then tells Kenzi that she will go out and get some snacks and wine. Kenzi calls out after Bo: "And candy!"
Back at the Dal Riata, Dyson is still drinking there alone as Tamsin enters and walks up to him and asks how he is. Dyson tells Tamsin: "I haven't felt this alone in centuries." Tamsin asks Dyson if he remembers the first time they met and Dyson tells her that he remembers: "Taking some shots in the mouth." Tamsin takes a drink and comments: "That's not all I did to that mouth." Tamsin then straddles Dyson and looks into his eyes. Dyson tells her that he: "Cannot even think straight right now" and she replies: "Stop thinking. You're always thinking" before she begins to kiss him and encourage him by saying: "Come on" over and over again until Dyson begins to respond to her advances.
Kenzi is looking into the fridge and calls out to Hale: "Hey baby! You want cheese or ice cream?" When she closes the fridge and turns around Kenzi sees Massimo (Tim Rozen) there, his face burned and bleeding and says to Kenzi: "Well you could just die already." Kenzi attempts to run past Massimo and screams out for Hale, but Massimo stops her and tells Kenzi that he "never did like the sound of your voice." He then throws Kenzi to the floor before grabbing Kenzi by the hair and then starts to beat her, ranting as he does so: "You and that stupid Succubus bitch couldn't leave it alone could you? You tried to kill me. Burn me alive." When Kenzi tries to take hold of a weapon to defend herself, Massimo takes it away from her and taunts Kenzi telling her that he will: "Make you pretty. Just like me." Massimo kicks Kenzi again and then places his foot on her throat before again taunting her asking why Kenzi doesn't "use your sparkles and sparkle me away!" before calling Kenzi a "pathetic little human just like me." Hale then arrives and pulls Massimo off of Kenzi, holding him by the throat before punching him, knocking him to the floor, kicking him repeatedly and then using his Siren voice to seemingly kill Massimo.
The next scene there is no sound, save some background music, as Kenzi is on the floor in pain and Hale touches his ear to see blood on his fingers. Hale wobbles on his feet and looks at Kenzi who is in pain and then she screams at Hale, but he cannot hear her words before Massimo appears behind Hale and drives the sword he had been holding before through Hale's back and out his chest. After Massimo pulls the sword out of Hale, Hale falls to his knees and into Kenzi's arms before he crumples to the floor, Kenzi crying out as she holds him. Massimo then shows Kenzi the Twig of Zamora and begins to repeat the verse that tells of its powers but stops midway in doing so and begins to rant at Kenzi again, telling her that the Twig has saved his life twice and thanks Hale before kicking him. Kenzi screams at Massimo not to touch Hale. Massimo then tells Kenzi: "You are right. I should be thanking you. Consider us paid in full" before turning and walking away leaving Kenzi alone with Hale. Kenzi begs Hale to breathe, but Hale tells her: "I love you." Kenzi cries out: "No! No! Someone help me please! Please anybody! Bo where are you!"
After another commercial, we return to see Kenzi holding Hale in silence as Bo returns to find the aftermath of Massimo's attack. Bo rushes over to Kenzi and Hale, asking what happened. Kenzi tells Bo that Massimo killed Hale and "it is all my fault." Bo touches Hale and cries "Oh Hale!" as Kenzi mumbles about giving Massimo the Twig of Zamora in exchange for her power when Bo was missing and tells Bo that she alone is responsible for everything that has happened. Kenzi then looks at Bo and realizes that she can bring Hale back, but Bo tells Kenz that she cannot do so. Kenzi reminds Bo of the time after her Dawning when she took all of the Chi from everyone around her when Dyson was dead and brought him back to life and demands that Bo "being back Hale! You have to do it!" Bo yells at Kenzi that she does not have enough Chi in her to do so and it cannot be done, Bo telling Kenzi that she "cannot lose you." Kenzi then takes hold of Bo and screams: "You are so god damned selfish! You say you always want to help but you only ever help yourself! I will never forgive you." Bo says nothing and then Kenzi tells Bo: "Do it." Bo then begins to take Chi from Kenzi but after a moment stops. leaving Kenzi gasping. Bo tells her: "Kenzi, I can't save him." Kenzi demands to know why and Bo tells Kenzi she will die, Kenzi screams she doesn't care and Bo yells: "I do! I care! I choose you! I'll always choose you!" Kenzi cries out that she was going to say yes, that she "wanted to say yes!" as Bo touches Kenzi's cheeks and uses her powers to calm Kenzi down and sooth her pain as much as she can. Kenzi falls across Hale's waist, her head on Bo's laps as she sobs, Bo crying out in pain with Kenzi, telling Kenzi over and over again: "I'm so sorry..." The final image of the episode being Bo holding a hand to her face and sobbing as the episode ends.
Questions in this Episode
- Bo's apology to Kenzi at the beginning of the episode seemed to be not very true and real at least from how Kenzi took it. Is that a sign that someone or something is controlling Bo or altering her way of thinking?
- What could possibly suggest to Hale that having Kenzi's mother and cousin be there when he proposed to Kenzi knowing as he must that Kenzi's relationship with her mother is not a good one?
- Did Kenzi's family actually expect Hale to pay for Kenzi's hand in marriage? Were they taking advantage of him more than anything else?
- It seems that everyone knows that Bo was responsible for the death of the Una Mens, does this mean that Bo will be a target of Fae that supported them or the followers of the Una Mens?
- The location of the Origin Seed is not known, but Vex seems to be have been the one that stole it.
- Given the conversation between Bo and Dyson, it seems that their relationship is, if not over, then close to it. As Bo seems not to be able to express to Dyson why this is so, is this again the influence of Rainer or something or someone else?
- It is possible that Massimo is the one that desires the Origin Seed so that he can become greater than all Fae kind and make them bow to him which would fit his personality. But in using the seed, would be just become a tool for someone or something else?
- Where has Massimo been hiding all of this time?
- Why did he go after Kenzi at that moment? Why didn't he go after Bo since she was the one that "killed" him? Or for that matter, why didn't he go after Tamsin? What made Kenzi so important that he had to attack her first. Wouldn't it have made more sense to stay hidden and then attack Bo or Tamsin leaving Kenzi for last?
- If Tamsin is correct and Rainer was not her "boss" the one that sent her in search of Bo, then who is?
- Is Rainer actually The Wanderer, or in disguise or working for them or something else?
- Assuming that Kenzi did say yes, or that she at least possesses Hale's ring, does this mean anything to Hale's family, especially his father and sister?
- If Hale had not died as a result of Massimo's attack, did the blood coming from his ears mean that Hale was going to die at some point anyway?
- What will Bo, Kenzi, Dyson, Lauren, Trick and Tamsin do to avenge Hale's death? Obviously something is going to happen as a result of what Massimo did.
- What is Massimo planning?
- If he is planing to use the Seed on himself, which seems likely, what happens when the Seed meets the Twig?
- Is it possible that Kenzi, using her new found skills as a Shadow Thief, going to go after Massimo, steal the Twig and then make him suffer for what he did?
