Short Summary

Dyson wakes up outside of a club with a recently deceased Dark Fae named Ba'al beside him and blood all over his body. He obtains Sanctuary from Trick, and discovers that he has no memories of what happened to him, and asks for help from Bo to find out why. In the meantime, The Morrigan blames Dyson for the death of Ba'al, an associate of her favorite Vex and looks for revenge on Dyson for this. Both The Morrigan and The Ash attempt to convince Dyson to give himself up but without success. Bo in the meantime searches at a Dark Fae owned club which Vex runs trying to solve the mystery. She discovers that there is more to the place than is on the surface and discovers the truth of what happened.

Detailed Summary

The episode begins at a nightclub called Carpe Noctem where we see Dyson (Kristen Holden-Reid) confronting a Dark Fae named Ba’al (Karl Campbell). The pair get into an argument and Dyson threatens Ba’al as Vex (Paul Amos) appears to taunt Dyson that since his is in a Dark Fae bar they would be in their right to kill him should be attack. Dyson considers for a moment and then leaves. We then switch to Bo (Anna Silk) and Kenzi’s (Ksenia Solo) place were the pair are attempting to cook something for dinner. Kenzi claiming that she can cook and did so during a scam she once ran for a month as a high society caterer. Their talk turns to the things they don’t know about the people close to them and, eventually, wondering about Dyson’s past. They eventually get to the point to try Kenzi’s cooking, find it awful, and decide to make grilled cheese instead. Back at the Carpe Noctem, Ba’al leaves the club, walks around a corner and then is attacked by a white wolf that kills him.

After the opening credits we return to see Dyson unconscious and covered in blood. He awakes and sees the dead body of Ba’al beside him and growls. Leaving Dyson for the moment, we are next in Trick’s bar as Bo and Kenzi try to get some information about Dyson’s past from Trick. We learn that Dyson had been in Spain as well as Iceland in the past, and that he had not always been a cop. Trick questions Bo as to why she is asking all these questions about Dyson and she tells him that she wants to know more about someone she is intimate with. Trick replies that the phrase “curiosity killed the cat” isn’t just a saying. Then Dyson appears and claims sanctuary from Trick, which he gives and moments later the bar is empty save for Trick, Bo, Kenzi and Dyson. He then receives a phone call from Hale (K. C. Collins) who tells him that people are looking for him because they have found the body of Ba’al and there are witnesses that claim Dyson was threatening Ba’al less than an hour before. Dyson also tells Hale that he has no memory of what happened for several hours before. Hale replies that The Ash wants Dyson to turn himself in so that the Light Fae can hand him over to The Morrigan and the Dark Fae to have their justice served on him. That justice meaning his death.

Bo tells Dyson that she will figure out what happened, but is shocked when Dyson tells her that Ba’al was close to Vex and that Vex returned to the city a few weeks before. Regardless of that threat, Bo and Kenzi decide to press on and try to solve this mystery before it is too late. Bo then asks Trick for the Siracon that she used in the episode Vexed to combat Vex’s powers. Trick tells her that it was confiscated by The Ash as a restricted weapon and he no longer has it. Bo and Kenzi then leave Trick’s bar on the hunt for an answer.

We return to find Hale, Bo and Kenzi in Hale’s office discussing what happened to Dyson. The Morrigan sent evidence to Hale who sent it on to Lauren (Zoie Palmer) to be examined. He also tells Bo that there are three witnesses to what happened between Dyson and Ba’al. Those three being Vex, a Dark Fae bartender named Silas (Daniel Kash) and a human Goth girl named Portia (Holly Deveaux). Bo and Kenzi then leave but not before Hale tells her that he will be watched by the Light and Dark Fae since he is a friend of Dyson’s, but he will have Dyson’s back in all of this.

Bo and Kenzi go to the Carpe Noctem and begin to have a look around hoping to find some clues about what happened there. The first person they meet is Silas who is tending bar when they arrive there. They talk for a short time and Silas says that Dyson clearly threatened Ba’al and so he must be guilty. Bo wants to ask more questions, but Vex arrives and her attention turns to him. Vex taunts Bo with the information that Ba’al was important to him, that there was a story between Ba’al and Dyson in the past and that Dyson had a motive to kill him. When Bo tries to leave, Vex attempts to convince Bo that it would be a good thing to be on the side of the Dark Fae as she could feed whenever she wanted and be as powerful as she wanted to be. Bo pushes him away, as does Kenzi. They decide that Kenzi will circulate through the Carpe Noctem, looking for Portia, while Bo returns to see Dyson and get some more information from him.

Bo arrives back at Trick’s bar and sees Dyson. She then has a good look at the tattoos that he has on his body and discovers that they are written in the Lycanthrope language which is used by both the Light and Dark wolf-shifting Fae. Bo tells him that Vex said he had a reason to kill Ba’al and Dyson explains what happened between them. It turns out that years before there had been a series of murders taking place in the city and that Redcaps were involved. These being a group of Fae that use human blood to dye their hats red. He explains that he found Ba’al and tried to get some justice from him, but Ba’al attacked Dyson with a silver blade and he almost bled to death. In the end, it was seen as a unsanctioned attempt and Ba’al attack was classed as being in self-defense. Bo promises that she will solve this for him and they will get justice. Then, as they embrace, The Morrigan (Emmanuelle Vaugier) arrives with two thugs looking to take Dyson from Trick’s bar. When they refuse, she attempts to take Dyson by force. Dyson and Bo attempt to resist her and her thugs, and are almost defeated, when Trick aims a shotgun loaded with iron and silver at The Morrigan’s thugs. She laughingly tells Trick that his resistance will not work and she will have her way with Dyson eventually. However, she does leave, her wishes for the moment unfulfilled.

Next we see Dyson telling Trick and Bo that no one else should become the target of The Morrigan because of him. Bo tells him that he cannot leave the bar because he will be taken as soon as he does. Eventually Dyson agrees to stay and Bo leaves. But before she does, Trick tells her to remember that Vex can get into her mind, but she can get into his as well. After she leaves, Dyson asks Trick about a Fae called a Kirin. Trick answers that he knows that they can get into a person’s mind and find lost memories, and that they are dangerous. After some discussion, Trick agrees to locate a trust worthy one for Dyson in order to attempt to find the memories he has lost.

Kenzi meanwhile continues her search in the Carpe Noctem for Portia, meeting a goth guy and having a talk with him before seeing Portia at the bar and moving towards her. At the same time, Bo is talking with Hale about Dyson and learns that he was a Stone Warrior until the last fifty years when he took on the role of a Detective. Bo also learns that Dyson has a lot of enemies from his past and that there is no evidence of what happened between the time that Dyson left his office and waking up in the alley save for what they have. Then Lauren arrives with her report for Hale on the evidence that The Morrigan provided. She and Bo have an awkward moment and Hale asks if something is going on. They both say no and Hale drops the question for the moment. Lauren then shows the evidence she was given. The bite marks are from a canine and she is still waiting for DNA evidence to see if Dyson’s is there, but she has little else. After Bo complains that Lauren has too many hopes in her evidence, Lauren leaves obviously upset with Bo’s attitude and reaction towards her.Hale then tells Bo that he was worried about Dyson getting too involved with her at first, but now believes that she is “the real thing.” Bo then leaves to try and get more information from someone that might help her.

At the Carpe Noctem, Kenzi hooks up with Portia and has a long talk with her, the two of them bonding together as that happens. She finds out something of Portia’s past and they share stories with each other. Kenzi talks about the killing and Portia tells her what she saw, that Dyson left the bar, Ba’al left the bar, and then a big wolf killed Ba’al.

The Ash appears at Trick’s Bar and tells Trick that his concern is Dyson’s welfare to which Trick replies that Dyson will not turn himself over to the Dark for The Ash’s sake. The Ash tells him that fighting what is happening will only bring the two sides closer to war. The Ash then warns Trick that his strange power will be threatened to which he answers that The Ash should be very sure of his own position before threatening someone else. The Ash repliea, “That was the wrong answer.” and then leaves.

Next we see Portia meeting Bo with Kenzi and they ask her further questions about what happened, but get nowhere further. Eventually Bo decides to go into the Carpe Noctem and face Vex while Kenzi takes Portia back to their home for the night as she has no where and no one to go to. They leave, Bo enters the Carpe Noctem and finds Silas and finds out that his does not like Vex at all, but gets little else from him. Bo then leaves, but begins to act oddly as if she is having an orgasm in the middle of the dance floor. Vex then appears beside her and it is obvious that he is using his powers on her. Bo attempts to fight back by using her powers on him in return and they seem to come to a stalemate for a time before Vex gains the upper hand. He however notices that everyone is looking at him and Bo and sets Bo free as there are too many witnesses to what was happening.

At Trick’s Bar, the Kirin has arrived to scan Dyson’s memories. Dyson is warned that the process will be like “someone pouring battery acid in your skull.” Dyson tells him to do it and the pair scream in pain as the memories of the past are touched. The one that appears is Dyson taking a phone call just before he left his office and then the memory abruptly ends there. He is then told that there is nothing else, that everything is simply wiped away and does not exist, and cannot be recovered. And someone is responsible for that.

Portia and Kenzi meanwhile are at Bo’s place talking about various things. The topic comes up about Vex, who Portia says is nice, and Silas, who looks after her. Kenzi notices a bracelet Portia is wearing and Portia says that it was Silas’. She then asks if she can crash on the sofa and removes her top. Kenzi then sees that Portia’s back is covered in welts and many marks that look like knife cuts or worse.

Bo returns to Dyson convinced that Vex is responsible for everything that has happened. Dhyson tells Bo that he got a bit of information back and that the last thing he remembers is taking a phone call at his office. Bo calls Hale and he tells her that the call came from an art dealer in the city named Lyle Harrison (Rob Stewart) and Bo leaves to find him and see what he knows. Kenzie returns to the apartment with some medicine for Portia’s back, but she has left in the meantime. Bo finds Lyle and by using her power on him, discovers that he is sexually aroused by pain. She learns through him that beneath Vex’s place there is a dungeon that special VIPs use to fulfill those fantasies. He tells of a girl with pink hair that Ba’al killed, apparently that being the way that they got rid of them when the VIPs got bored. Bo almost takes Lyle’s life by feeding on him, but instead warns him that if he does this again she will take it and leaves.

She then calls Hale and gives him the information she has gotten and discovers that the girl with pink hair that was killed was a Light Fae. Hale puts out the theory that maybe that is the reason that Dyson killed Ba’al but Bo believes that it isn’t as Dyson could have easily just told the Dark Fae elders about it and they would have punished Ba’al for doing so.

Trick is on the phone in the meantime attempting to get support for when the time comes for Dyson to be judged. The person on the other end of the phone refuses and Trick tells them that they are done. Dyson tells Trick not to throw away his friendships for him. Trick replies that it is a good time to know who his friends really are. Dyson then leaves deciding that he will not wait any longer. Bo finds Kenzi at home and Kenzi tells her about Portia’s wounds and that she cannot remember how they happened. They then leave for Vex’s place. Dyson in the meantime arrives there and sees that the doorway to the lower level is open and investigates. He finds Vex there and confronts him, but it is a trap set by The Morrigan and he is captured and taken away for punishment by Vex, The Morrigan and her thugs.

Bo and Kenzi arrive next and head downstairs as Dyson is seen chained to the ceiling. He says that he remembers nothing about what happened, but The Morrigan doesn’t care about that and only wants to know about what Dyson knows about Bo. Dyson tells her to ask Vex about Bo but he admits that he knows nothing about her. Dyson tells The Morrigan that she knows as much as Bo does, but The Morrigan replies that she knows that Dyson knows more than he is admitting to. Vex then takes a red hot poker to Dyson’s back and begins to burn him with it. At that moment, Bo and Kenzi find Portia locked away in a room nearby and free her from from it. Bo then sees the bracelet that Portia is wearing and recognizes the writing as being Lycanthrope, this telling Bo who is responsible for killing Ba’al.

The Morrigan meanwhile is getting bored with Dyson’s refusal to talk and tells Vex to finish him. However, before that can happen, Bo and Kenzi arrive, Bo grabs the poker and holds it to The Morrigan’s throat, threatening her life. Bo then reveals that Silas was the murderer to everyone there. Kenzi then explains what actually happened that night. Silas was in love with Portia and when he saw Dyson threatened Ba’al he took the opportunity to give Dyson a drink that would wipe his memory. When Dyson left, Silas knocked him out in the alleyway and waiting for Ba’al to leave. When that happened Silas shapeshifted into his wolf form and killed Ba’al leaving Dyson beside the body as evidence, Silas then asked Portia to lie that she had seen Dyson kill Ba’al. Portia then arrives and tells Silas that she hadn’t told anyone about what happened. Vex asks why they would let them all leave and Bo tells him that Hale knows what is going on and that if they don’t get out alive that The Morrigan, Vex and the rest will be seen as part of the pink haired Fae girl’s death, thus starting the war they are so afraid of. Kenzi leads Portia out of the dungeon with Bo and Dyson following behind them. The last we see of Silas is Vex holding him with The Morrigan watching.

The end of the episode begins with Bo, Dyson and Trick at the bar when The Ash arrives to tell them that the Dark Fae have dropped all charges against him and that it seems that the Dark found the murderer in their own ranks. Bo comments that The Ash being there is ruining a celebration to which The Ash tells Trick that what he did foretells of a bigger conflict between them in the future. Trick’s answer is, “Was there any doubt?” The Ash answers, “I suppose not.” and then leaves. Dyson thanks Trick for what he did and Trick tells him not to make it a regular occurrence. Dyson agrees and then touch forearms as Dyson says, “On my honor.”

Kenzi and Portia are at the apartment and Portia tells Kenzi that she has found a job and a place to live, getting herself off the street. Kenzi makes her promise to call regularly and the two new friends separate each on their own paths to their futures.

The last scene is Bo and Dyson talking with each other, Dyson telling Bo that she is the one person that he has not thanked properly. Bo tells him that she didn’t need to ask all of the question she had about him, she knows him now. Dyson tells her the same. The last image is of Bo and Dyson in each other’s arms kissing, Bo not feeding, and having a smile on her face.
