Lauren reveals to Bo that Hades helped her become a Conduit which brings some stress to their relationship and Lauren seems to be losing her memories, but the reason is unclear. Bo discovers that Zee has not been banished and Hades reveals what he did which allowed this to happen. Bo encounters Zee, but discovers it is actually Elizabeth, her human host, and she does not know where Zee has gone. Prior to this, Zee gave her shield to Hephaestus who uses it to create a weapon for Bo to use against Hades. Bo is forced to act as a lawyer in a courtroom in order to see Hephaestus and eventually passes the test when she answers her own truth. While in Hephaestus’ armoury, she encounters Zee who has possessed Lauren’s body. Hera awakes in Lauren’s clinic, pretending to be Kevin in order to escape and does so meeting with Zee in Hephaestus’ armoury to confront Bo. Zee leaves Lauren’s body after sending a message to Bo, returning to Elizabeth’s when Lauren suffers side effects, and after warning Bo about Hades, banishes herself and Hera, freeing their human hosts.
In the aftermath, Bo receives her weapon, a horseshoe, but does not know what to do with it. Dyson and Alycia are living together and their relationship is growing, but Dyson has issues dealing with it, knowing that his true love is Bo. After Zee and Hera depart, Alycia returns to Kevin and Dyson ends their relationship. Lauren takes an antidote, ending her being a Conduit, and admits to Bo that she lost herself in what she became. She then breaks off their relationship, claiming that her being human and Bo being Fae makes it impossible and she will not allow Bo to suffer when she passes on. Bo confronts Hades, blaming him for all that has transpired, but he claims that he only wants Bo to be happy, which she does not believe. Bo then finds herself becoming intimate with Tamsin once more, but as they kiss, Bo’s hair begins to turn white, her features shifting and appearing similar to that of Hades.
The episode opens with a recap of the previous episode including: Bo and Lauren kissing, Bo asking in a voice over why Lauren did not tell Evony that she was a Conduit, followed by Evony confronting Lauren and asking why she did not return her to being Fae when she had the chance, Lauren replying that she wanted to test her serum, Evony then asking who Lauren was testing the serum on. Trick is then shown telling Tamsin about the last time Hades was vulnerable, that being when he was banished to Tartarus. Stacey and Tamsin are then seen at the Valkyrie Academy, Tamsin commenting that the portal to Valhalla would only open for teachers. Acacia is then seen entering Tamsin's classroom in the past followed by Tamsin telling Acacia that Hades wants to build an army, Acacia telling Tamsin to be the General that Hades wants. Hades is then seen leaving his isolation cell at will with Tamsin's voice warning him that she will protect her friends followed by Bo wondering what game Hades is playing and Tamsin telling Bo there is only one way to find out.
The episode begins with Bo (Anna Silk) in the shower who is soon joined by Lauren (Zoie Palmer), the two being intimate for a time before kissing and then Lauren feeding on Bo's Chi for a moment before Bo asks: "Is this really happening?", Lauren saying nothing before they kiss again, but the second time Lauren does not seem to feed on Bo. The two are then seen walking through Bo's home, Lauren commenting that she is hungry, adding: "Does Chi sucking always give a bad case of the munchies?" Bo does not reply to this but when Lauren asks if she wants pizza, Bo tells Lauren that he already called for pizza shortly before. Lauren brushes this off, claiming to be "kidding" about doing so. Bo answers: "Ha" and Lauren asks: "What? You don't think I have a future in standup?" Bo replies: "I wouldn't put it past you, I never imagined you'd be Fae." Lauren tells Bo that she isn't quite Fae, and only is if she is touching one. Bo asks what happens if Lauren does touch a Far for too long and Lauren jokes: "I explode into confetti. It's actually quite spectacular, want to see?" but then tells Bo that she cannot give an answer to the question, only promising to do some testing to find out. Bo then comments: "On yourself? Isn't that what guinea pigs are for?" Lauren promises she is taking "every precaution" but Bo notes: "and I am every bit worried." Lauren then tries to tell Bo not to worry, starting to explain that "after we found the TTV..." Bo interrupts at this point and asks who else was involved, which forces Lauren to admit that Hades had assisted her in finding the answer she needed, but also adding that she would have come up with the answer on her own eventually. Bo tells Lauren that Hades is planning "something" and is concerned that Lauren being changed into a Conduit might be part of his plans. Lauren brushes this concern off explaining: "I will be one step ahead." Lauren then tries to calm Bo's concerns telling her: "I know this is overwhelming for you, but this is a step in the right direction. The forever direction." Bo again warns Lauren that Hades is not to be trusted, but Lauren tells Bo: "It feels like the issue is that you don't trust me." At this point their conversation is interrupted by a knock at the door which Bo goes to answer, commenting: "That must be the pizza."
The scene then shifts to what appears to be a blacksmith's shop. Zee (Amanda Walsh) is seen entering, carrying the Aegis Shield which she gives to the man working there warning him: "Don't fail me." He replies: "Sundown tomorrow it will be done." and Zee leaves a moment later after giving him a harsh look. Moments later, Zee is seen leaving an elevator and encountering a woman (Nengi Adoki) that recognizes her human host. Zee sighs: "Not again." then asks: "So, are you a screamer or the type that is going to get all emotional?" When the woman comments: "I thought you were dead?" Zee answers: "No." then snaps the woman's neck, walking past the fallen body and adding: "That's you."
After the opening credits, Alycia (Lisa Marcos) is seen making breakfast at Dyson's home, Dyson (Kristen Holden-Ried) entering moments later and sitting at the table with her. In the midst of eating, Dyson's phone rings and after speaking on the phone for a moment comments to Alycia: "Work. Something's come up." Alycia asks with a smile if Dyson wants his coffee to go, Dyson picking up his mug and replying: "No. I'll take it like this." After telling Alycia he will see her that evening, Dyson moves to leave, but Alycia stops him to hand over his wallet that Dyson left behind. Dyson thanks her, commenting: "I'm an idiot" before the two share a kiss without thinking about it, then pausing a moment, looking at each other before Dyson apologizes, Alycia telling Dyson: "No. It's my fault." Dyson ends the moment by telling Alycia they will talk later and then leaves, Alycia turning away and smiling as he does so.
The scene then moves to the Dal Riata where Dyson is showing surveillance camera footage of Zee killing the woman to Bo, Trick (Richard Howland) and Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten). Dyson informs them all that there were no witnesses to the event while Bo cannot believe that Zee has returned as she: "saw Zee vanish with the painting just like Jack (Hades) said she would." Tamsin sighs: "There's your answer" and Bo replies: "Jack lied to me." Tamsin comments that Zee and Hades must be working together, Trick adding: "Brothers in arms together again." Bo decides to confront Hades which brings Dyson to comment: "You don't think he's going to lie again?" Bo replies: "Oh I'm pretty sure he will which is why we need to play ignorant to the fact that Zee is back." Tamsin smiles as she muses: "The old he can't know that you know cause if he knows that you know he'll know. Yeah." After everyone gives Tamsin an odd look she adds: "You know?" Trick wonders why Zee was at the courthouse and Tamsin points out that it is the place were the Ancients came back to Earth through the elevator crash which provided them with host bodies. Bo comments there has to be something special about the courthouse, saying that it "must be sitting on something big." Tamsin muses: "Lucky courthouse" which makes Trick chuckle and Tamsin explains: "I swear that must be my inside voice." Trick tells the group he will: "Dig up any archaeological history I can find on the courthouse" as Bo sighs: "First stop, old man liar."
Lauren is then seen attending to Hera's (Noam Jenkins) unconscious body with a nurse (Elisa Atristain-Garcia), checking for any kind of reaction from touching the soles of his feet, but has no reaction at all from doing so. After ordering some further tests, Lauren asks for test results from a "Patient X" and the nurse informs Lauren that she has been carrying them under her arm for some time. Lauren laughs about this, then looks over the results, a concerned expression coming to her as she does so, commenting to herself: "Early stage Parkinson's?" The nurse adds: "The patient's cognitive decline is increasing rapidly. It's not looking good." Lauren sighs: "No. It isn't." When the nurse asks who the patient is, Lauren replies: "No one." and then walks away, Bo entering and approaching Lauren moments later. Lauren begins the conversation by telling Bo that she is not "in the mood to talk about last night." When Bo tells Lauren she is there to question Hades, Lauren asks: "When you need his help it's okay, but when I do..." Bo tells Lauren: "This is different. Because we are talking about you. The woman that I love. How can someone so smart... I just don't get why you are so willing to give up who you are to be Fae." Lauren sighs: "No, I guess you don't." and then starts to leave, but Bo asks Lauren to talk about what is going on, Lauren telling her: "What else is there to say?" and then leaving the room.
The scene then moves to Hades (Eric Roberts) in his isolation cell making a sketch of Bo as she stands outside glaring at him. Hades tells Bo: "I only brought the horse to the water, I had no part in making her drink." Bo answers: "Horse shit." but Hades continues: "I admit I helped her with the solution, but I had no idea she was going to use it on herself." Bo tells Hades: "You are messing with someone's life." Hades tells Bo: "She wanted this more than anything else in the world." Hades then asks about Zee, wondering why Bo hasn't asked about her and Bo replies: "Why did you lie to me?" Hades explains: "I told you the painting would banish Zee, I never told you to where." Bo sighs: "So you played me." Hades tells Bo he protected her from Zee using the painting against her. There is the sound of something breaking in the distance and when Bo looks at Hades he comments: "Don't look at me." Bo considers him a moment, then goes off to see what made the noise. Bo then discovers Zee laying on the floor, gasping and looking frightened. When Bo picks up a knife and threatens her, Zee scrambles to her feet and cowers, asking who Bo is. Bo does not believe this, thinking it an act of some kind and asks: "Cut the crap Zee, what are you doing here?" Zee continues to be frightened, crying out that she does not know what Bo is talking about. Bo approaches closer and then whispers: "Elizabeth?"
After a commercial break, Elizabeth is seen at the Dal Riata eating while Trick, Bo, Tamsin and Dyson watch her, Tamsin commenting: "I thought I could eat." Bo comments: "Feeding off adoration must not feed the human appetite." When Trick asks if they are sure it is not Zee, Dyson replies: "There's no scent of Fae in there, it's all human." Bo wonders where Zee went and then goes to talk to Elizabeth in an attempt to find that out, Tamsin, Trick and Dyson following along to watch. Bo asks Elizabeth what she remembers about Zee controlling her body and Elizabeth explains: "I tried to block most of it out" adding that she hummed old Madonna songs and tried not to see what Zee was doing most of the time, and thinking about her fiancé, which gives her pause for a moment, then she whispers: "I... She... killed him didn't she?" Bo tells Elizabeth that she can't be hurt, but they need to figure out what Zee was doing in the courthouse. When Elizabeth says she can't remember, Dyson shows Elizabeth a picture of the woman that Zee killed, Elizabeth identifying her as Claire. Elizabeth starts to hyperventilate and panic over this before Tamsin tells her: "Okay, what happened to you is horrible there's no denying that it sucks to be used against your will. But it's time to be a hero and not a victim, so maybe you should stop crying and start remembering." When everyone looks at Tamsin she shrugs: "What? Tough love." Elizabeth calms down enough to remember a smell she describes as "musty and hot, not Florida hot, fire in my face hot and... banging. Like someone hammering on a furnace. I think there was something about a shield? I think she was giving it to someone?" Trick comments: "Aegis shield." Trick then opens a book he has been carrying and explains that Zee likely saw Hephaestus, also calling him Hepha, adding that he is the son of Zeus and Hera. Trick explains that Hepha is the forger of weaponry for the Ancients. Dyson wonders why Zee would give up her shield of protection and Trick explains that "Hepha grants only one weapon per God. Zeus could be trading it in for something stronger, more deadly." Bo comes to to conclusion they need to search the courthouse, but Trick explains that to see Hepha, one must "be granted an audience with one of the Erinyes, the ministers of Justice. Tisiphone, Megaera and..." Elizabeth asks: "Not Judge Megaera?" adding: "Everyone knows her." When Bo asks what Megaera is like. Elizabeth replies: "I don't use the Lord's name in vein often but she is one mean son-of-a-you-know-what." When Dyson comments: "You didn't use the Lord's name in vein", Elizabeth replies: "Exactly."
Bo and Tamsin are then seen walking through the courthouse, Bo calling Lauren's phone and leaving a message for Lauren to call her back. Tamsin comments when the call is over: "Makes me glad I'm single." When Bo starts to apologize, Tamsin assures Bo that it's fine and she is "very happy for you and the Doc." When Bo asks if she is sure, Tamsin replies: "We're friends, we're not friends with benefits." Elizabeth then interrupts through earpieces that both Bo and Tamsin are wearing with a sound check and when Bo asks if she can hear them, Elizabeth replies: "This is so Mission Impossible!" After Tamsin tells Elizabeth to focus she describes Megaera as: "Elegant, like an older Kate Winslet in Titanic. Or you can always count on her statement necklace." When Bo asks for something more specific, Elizabeth adds: "She likes to eat her lunch under that super weird, super offensive painting." At that moment, from across the hall, Megaera (Mimi Kuzyk) is seen eating her lunch. Elizabeth also tells Bo to speak in short sentences and to use legalize in doing so. Bo comments: "I object. No, really, that's all I've got." When Elizabeth comments: "We should Roxanne this", Tamsin growls: "If she makes one more movie reference I'm cutting her off." When Bo asks: "Roxanne was a movie?" Elizabeth answers: "Oh come on! Steve Martin? Daryl Hanna? Cyrano De Bergerac?" At this point Bo and Tamsin approach Megaera and Bo greets her by saying hello, but Megaera says: "No." When Bo is confused, Megaera continues: "You don't just waltz over here Miss Dennis, interrupt my lunch, and ask for an audience with Hephaestus." Bo answers in a chastised voice: "No, of course not." After complimenting Megaera on her egg salad sandwich there is a pause while Megaera puts her lunch down and then tells Bo: "Okay. An audience is given only by proving oneself worthy." Bo asks: "What are we talking? Slay a dragon? Swallowing a centipede?" Megaera says nothing, but casually points to her side were a pair of doors have appeared out of thin air. When Bo moves to enter, Tamsin following, Megaera warns that only Bo is allowed to enter. Tamsin backs away as Megaera tells Bo: "Your test awaits you." Bo replies as she looks at the doors: "Will I get time to study?" and when she looks back to Megaera, she has vanished, leaving her lunch where she had been sitting behind. Tamsin tells Bo: "I'll be here if you need me." and then leaves as Bo turns to the doors and enters.
Once though the doors, Bo finds herself in a courtroom, Megaera the presiding Judge and the two parties appearing before her in the room waiting. Bo pauses to look at one of the parties who sighs: "Great. This is just what I needed. I really hope you are better than the last three lawyers. This business is my life. Don't screw it up for me." He then introduces himself as Phillip (Ennis Esmer) and offers his hand, but Bo excuses herself and approaches Megaera. Bo tells her: "I think there's been a mistake, I'm not a lawyer." Megaera replies: "Succeed for your client and you will be granted an audience. Fail and the only thing you'll be granted is a one-way ticket to Myth." Bo asks: "Please tell me that's an island in Greece." Megaera sighs and explains: "Myth is a realm of eternal stasis. Limbo? If you will." Bo asks: "Can't a girl cut a deal?" but Megaera tells Bo to take her seat as Megaera calls the court to session. As Bo walks away, she tells Elizabeth: "Hey Roxanne? You're on."
After another commercial break, Bo is acting as a lawyer and asking questions of Phillip about the case at hand, which revolves around Max Pearson (Steve Arbuckle), selling some software to a rival company. After being coached by Tamsin and Elizabeth, Bo completes her questioning and then listens to Max's Lawyer (Harry Judge) cross-examine Phillip, making some errors in objecting to the questioning, and then listens has Phillip is asked about how he treated Max as part of the company and why he acted in the way he did and why Max did not appear as a partner in company literature and other venues.
The scene then switches to the Dal Riata where Dyson is drinking and Trick asks what is going on, eventually piecing together that while Dyson claimed Alycia to protect her, he has feelings for her. Trick tells Dyson: "Bo will always be your greatest love, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for you to love another." Dyson replies: "That's not the way of my kind. There are rules." Trick muses: "For thousands of years I lived by the rules of the Light and the Dark. Because of that steadfast resolution, I tore my family apart. Sometimes the heart does what it likes despite what the rules say."
Meanwhile, back at Dyson's gym, the kitchen is filled with smoke as the fire detector is sounding. Dyson rushes in, calling out Alycia's name and she appears from within the smoke, carrying a fire extinguisher, and uses it to put out the fire on the stove. When the fire is out, Alycia explains: "I made dinner." Dyson answers: "Yeah. I could smell it from around the block. Yeah. Roast chicken." Alycia says that it was, calling herself an idiot, but Dyson tells her: "It's the thought that counts." and then suggests that they order in something for dinner. Alycia stares at Dyson for a moment, then moves closer to him. Dyson asks: "Wait. Shouldn't we talk about this?" Alycia answers: "No" as the two kiss and the scene ends.
Back in the courtroom, Elizabeth tells Bo that they will win the case as the law in on their side. On the stand, Max testifies that he tried to bring Phillip into the agreement he made. Bo then is allowed to question Max and she asks he stole company property and sold it to another company. Max explains that he owns half of the company and he has the right to sell an idea that isn't valued by his company to another. Bo is pressed towards one line of questioning by Elizabeth, but Bo instead turns the questioning towards the relationship between Phillip and Max, revealing that Max felt he wasn't being valued and Phillip felt he was trying to protect Max. Max asks Phillip who made it his role to protect him and after a moment Phillip drops the lawsuit, telling Max he can do what he wants to. The two then reconcile, agreeing to work together towards their mutual goal as equals. Megaera then dismisses the case and the court is adjourned. Megaera then begins to leave the courtroom, Bo following and asking: "That's it? I know I didn't win, but they worked it out in the end. Doesn't that make us all winners in the end?" Megaera replies: "Unfortunately no." Bo then realizes: "It wasn't about winning. This was about me." Megaera explains: "My courtroom is designed to reveal one's inner justice. Only then can Hephaestus forge a weapon befitting a warrior. Ugly bastard." Bo tries to explain: "I have always tried to protect people, but, maybe the wrong way. I should be supporting them. Supporting Lauren, that is how I will protect her." Megaera smiles: "Well done Bo. You have found your inner justice. Use it wisely." After Megaera points at the doors leading from the courtroom, Bo walks towards them, passes through and then enters Hephaestus' forge.
In the forge, Bo walks towards Hephaestus, pausing near to him and calling out to him. Hepha replies: "You must be Bo. I am Hephaestus." Hephaestus (Christopher Russell) is revealed as a handsome man, not at all an ugly being. Bo comments: "More like Hot-Facestue. You are the ugliest of all of the Ancients?" Hepha turns away, telling Bo: "By far. Olympus is a place of sublime beauty. Look away if you must." Bo walks closer, telling him: "I came for Zee. What is she planning?" Hepha looks to the side, revealing a hatch mounted in the floor with a wheel lock on it. He explains: "My fire fuses with the icy waters of the well, and from the Yawning Gap, the place of Myth, I forge a weapon worthy of the God before me." He then looks at Bo and bows towards her. Bo tells Hepha that she knows that Zee visited him and asks what Zee wanted. Hepha replies: "Ask her yourself." Bo then turns around to see Lauren standing behind her. Bo asks Lauren what she is doing there, and Lauren replies: "Deceiving isn't it? Turns out not all blondes have more fun." revealing that it is Zee within Lauren's body addressing Bo.
After still another commercial break, we return to the forge where Zee explains that when she discovered that Lauren was a Conduit, she decided that Lauren would make "the perfect new vessel. She struggled, but held on just long enough." Bo sighs: "So that's what happens when you hold on for too long." Zee walks past Bo and gloats: "Your girlfriend went from part-time conduit to full-time Ancient. I'd call that a promotion." Zee then moves to open the hatch, telling Bo: "It's time for a wake up call."
Back at Lauren's clinic, Hera awakens, the nurse attempting to contact Lauren to tell her what is happening. The nurse tries to talk to who she thinks is Kevin, trying to communicate with him and calm him down. However, he begins to panic, demanding to see Alycia, before dropping to the floor, seemingly unconscious again. The nurse then opens the isolation ward to help, but when she is close to Hera, he opens his mouth and a swarm of locusts attacks her as the scene ends.
Returning to the forge, Bo tells Zee: "Get the Fae out of my girlfriend." and Zee answers: "You need to listen to me. I am your only only chance against Hades." Bo answers: "You knew I wouldn't hurt Lauren." When Bo asks what Zee wants, she explains: "To warn you that Hades might seem benign, but he's a master manipulator. He'll infiltrate every inch of your life." Bo comments: "Oh, you just hijack girlfriends." Nonplussed, Zee continues: "He's evil Bo. Pure and ugly evil. Looks like he's already started. Who is it? The Valkyrie? The wolf? Oh... right... the doctor." Bo tells Zee: "I will never let my father get between me and Lauren." Zee then seems to suffer some kind of attack, becoming unsteady on her feet. Zee tells Bo: "The doctor is much too weak to hold out much longer. Functioning as a full-time Conduit comes with full-time side effects. I can feel her cells breaking down." Bo cries out that Zee is killing Lauren but Zee insists: "It's not my intention to hurt her. You just need to listen, Hera." Bo assumes that Zee is losing her mind but then Lauren seems to come into control for a moment, asking Bo where she is, before collapsing into Bo's arms. Elsewhere Tamsin and Elizabeth are listening to what is happening and Tamsin moves to help Bo, Elizabeth asking how she can help, but Tamsin does not answer as she leaves. Back at the forge, Bo attempts to leave with Zee, but is stopped by Zee who tells Bo they must wait as: "Hepha created my shield and now he's using it to forge a weapon for you." When Bo turns once more to leave, she finds Hera who enters and blocks their way, commenting: "Oh good, the gang's all here." Bo tells Hera that Lauren is dying and they need to leave, but Hera replies: "Oh that's a pity. She took such good care of me, saved my life. Why was that? Because Zeus killed me!" Zee sighs: "You're not still upset about that are you?" As Hera moves towards Bo, Tamsin enters with Elizabeth following close behind her. Tamsin tells Bo that Lauren is too weak and offers herself to Zee, but Elizabeth rushes around the group, taking hold of Lauren's arm and then Zeus leaves Lauren's body and enters Elizabeth's once more. Bo then hands Lauren off to Tamsin, telling her to get Lauren away, which Tamsin does, neither Zee or Hera stopping her. Hera then demands that Zee admit that she needs him. Zee replies: "How can you be so stupid? Of course I need you." The two then kiss as Bo asks Hepha how long it will be until the weapon is ready, Hera telling Bo: "Not in this lifetime succubus." Hera then wonders what Zee's plan was and then says: "Plan: 'Now we kill Bo."
Following still another commercial break, Bo asks: "I thought we were on the same team here? Hades, bad. Us, good?" Hera tells Bo: "Zee doesn't need another sidekick. I'm her second in command. And now? You're fired." Bo replies as Hera approaches: "I believe that's my line" and then picks up a red hot poker and points it towards Hera. He takes hold of the poker by the red hot end and begins to push it towards Bo. As this happens, Zee has moved towards the hatch in the floor and begins to open it which diverts Hera's attention to her, telling Zee to stop what she is doing. Hera begs Zee not to send him back to Myth, telling Zee about how bored they were there. Zee replies: "This isn't the end love. You trust me don't you?" Zee offers her hand which Hera takes, telling Zee: "I do." The pair then take hold of the wheel and are about to turn it, but Bo calls out: "So that's it? No goodbye cat fight?" Zee walks over to Bo and tells her: "I'm so glad we got to know each other. My beautiful niece. You know I defended people once. And in return they worshipped me. They had sacrifices for me." Bo comments: "Sounds like you had it all." Zee tells Bo: "I let it go to my head Don't let it go to yours. Remember with great power comes great..." Bo interrupts: "Okay, Voltaire." Zee then hugs Bo and whispers to her: "Never forget. Hades' evil comes in many forms." Zee then returns to Hera, the two open the hatch and then a moment later, they leave their human hosts, entering the opening and defending to Myth, the hatch closing behind them and their human hosts falling to the floor, Hera unconscious, Elizabeth groggy, but awake. There is the sound of something metallic falling to the floor and Bo looks to find what appears to be a horseshoe laying on the floor nearby. Bo calls out Hepha's name, but he does not answer. Bo then walks over to the horseshoe and picks it up. As she looks at it, Bo wonders: "What the Hepha am I supposed to do with this?"
Elsewhere, Dyson and Alycia are seen in bed together, Alycia commenting: "Why didn't anyone tell me about Fae in college?" Dyson's phone then rings and after a short conversation with Bo about what has happened, he turns to Alycia, a troubled expression on his face. Alycia tells him: "I don't like that look." Dyson replies: "It's Kevin."
The scene then moves to Dyson leading Alycia into Lauren's clinic, a nurse standing over what appears to be Kevin in bed. Dyson tells Alycia: "You don't owe me anything. I want you to live your life the way it was." Alycia replies that she doesn't regret anything as it is revealed that Kevin is awake and Alycia runs to be with him, Dyson looking on for a moment before turning away and leaving.
Elsewhere at Bo's home, Bo is setting out some takeout as Lauren enters the room. Bo tells Lauren: "I got us pho. To help you pho-get about spending an entire day inside that psychopath's head." Bo apologizes for her joke when Lauren doesn't react to it. Bo then tells Lauren that she loves her and explains that: "If you want to be Fae, then that's what I want too." Lauren replies: "I took the antidote. I'm not Fae anymore." Bo is surprised by this, but tells Lauren: "I'm just glad you are okay. Are you okay?" Lauren begins to cry as she explains: "I lost myself. I was so completely obsessed with us, that I lost myself." Bo tries to comfort Lauren, telling Lauren that she is "healthy and things can be the way they were" but Lauren continues: "You asked me why I was so willing to give up who I am to be Fae. It was never about being Fae, it was about us. It was about fixing the one thing that holds us back." Bo tells Lauren: "We don't need to be fixed, we're perfect." Lauren sighs: "When I am old and grey and losing my mind for real..." Bo again tries to tell Lauren that: "I will still love you. You. Lauren Lewis. No matter how many grey hairs you have on your head." Lauren whispers: "I know you will Bo. That's just it, I know you will love me until my last dying breath. But I can't do that to you. I don't want to do that to you." Bo tells Lauren it is her decision to do so, but Lauren insists that it isn't her decision alone. Bo tells Lauren that how she is feeling is because of Hades interfering in their lives, but Lauren replies: "No, it's not because of him. This is about you and me. I'm supposed to be a healer and you're a protector. I risked all of that." Bo is silent, then tells Lauren: "All. I want. Is you." Lauren tells Bo that she "can't" and that "People need you, people need me." Bo begs Lauren not to sever their relationship again, but Lauren continues: "Believe me I know. I'm so sorry. I love you." before she kisses Bo and then Lauren leaves the room, Bo remaining there, saying nothing as Lauren leaves.
Bo is then seen sweeping the playing pieces off a chessboard in anger as she then tells Hades: "Let me get something straight, in case it is not abundantly clear. You and me? Never going to happen." Hades is nonplussed as he replies: "You found Zee. How is the old girl?" Bo continues: "This is all a game to you, isn't it? You set up the chess pieces and you sit back and watch them fall. Whatever you are planning? Go. Do it. I'm done waiting. It's your move." Hades calmly asks: "Lauren reversed the serum." Bo tells Hades: "Not before it nearly killed her. Bravo! Your master plan worked! Lauren and I are done." When Hades attempts to explain, Bo warns him: "Do not Bo me. This is what you wanted." Hades insists that what has transpired is not what he wanted, adding: "I want my daughter to be happy." Bo cannot believe him, replying: "Hades wants me to be happy?" Hades continues: "People like us, we are capable of many things. But Love?" Hades says nothing more but shakes his head. Bo cries: "She's gone Dad. We're over." Hades then embraces Bo, whispering: "Oh baby... I didn't come here to ruin your life. I think I should take a step back now. Let you sort things out. But I'll be here. I'll be right here if you decide you need me." Bo replies: "Great, everyone's breaking up with me today." Hades tells Bo: "Gods no. You haven't heard a word I've said. Without family we are nothing. But I can only lead you to water, I cannot force you to drink." Bo sighs: "We're back to the horse metaphors. You're right. You can't force me to drink, and I never will." as she then walks away from Hades.
After the final commercial break, the scene then moves to the Dal Riata where Trick tells Bo and Dyson that the horseshoe is made of Adamantine and pure gold. Bo tells Trick: "A horseshoe is not a weapon. It's a parlour game." Trick explains: "In lore, the horseshoe symbolizes protection, wards off evil, and brings good luck." Bo sighs: "I'm not feeling especially lucky right now." Trick tells Bo that he will keep searching for more information and then hands the horseshoe back to Bo. Bo comments to Dyson after Trick leaves: "All of that for a gods damn horseshoe." Bo muses: "Maybe Jack's right. Maybe I'm not made for love." Dyson tells Bo: "I think the opposite is true. But if there's one thing I have learned from loving you, better to have loved and lost." Bo asks: "You cared for Alycia." Dyson pauses a moment, then answers: "I didn't think I could." Bo smiles, takes one of Dyson's hands in hers, tapping them on the horseshoe and they look at each other as the scene comes to a close.
The final scene of the episode begins with Bo at home watching television as Tamsin enters and tells Bo: "We have to do something about this wallow. It's all wrong." Bo replies: "You are critiquing my wallow?" Tamsin explains: "Wallow requirement numbero uno: snacks." Tamsin offers to order pizza but this only makes Bo start to cry. Tamsin then suggests Sushi or something else, like Chinese, instead after seeing Bo's reaction. Bo tells Tamsin: "She's gone Tamsin. We're over." Tamsin replies: "You do whatever you need to do. Cry, scream or whatever feels right." Bo stares at Tamsin a moment, then moves towards her, kissing Tamsin. After the kiss ends, Tamsin whispers: "Or that works too. But, maybe not with me?" Bo is silent for a moment, then tells Tamsin: "No matter how much I try, someone always ends up hurt." Tamsin replies: "It's just we're friends without benefits remember?" Bo smiles sadly, nods and then apologizes to Tamsin before telling Tamsin she is going to bed and starting to leave the room.
Tamsin then calls out for Bo to stop and then walks up to her saying to herself: "I'm going to regret this later." Bo then stalks up to Tamsin, the two kissing again before Bo tears Tamsin's shirt and then presses her against a wall before kissing her again. The final image of the episode is a closeup of Bo as she kisses Tamsin fiercely, Bo's hair around her temples turning white, her features changing to be similar to Hades as the episode ends.
