Short Summary

Kenzi has left town with Nate, and Bo is on her own as The Ash asks Bo to locate a Djinn named Sadie for him so that he can obtain more information on the Garuda. Trick, Hale and Dyson have recovered from what happened in the previous episode, and Trick shares what he has learned with them. He also shares the information with Bo, but she tells him that she has already learned the information from The Ash, which confuses Trick and worries him. Dyson tells Trick that he was made to admit that he cannot love Ciara, and he is having problems dealing with that truth. Dyson seeks out The Norn who tells him that since wolves mate for life, and he gave his love of Bo to her, he has no love to give and therefore cannot love Ciara or anyone else. Bo meets the mysterious man from the previous episode that gave her an odd bracelet which turns out to be someone named Ryan who provides various items to The Ash on occasion for a price.

Bo attends a party where Sadie is attending and with the help of Ryan and one of his devices, manages to capture Sadie, but they both wind up trapped in the same trap with Sadie. It is revealed that the bracelet Bo was given is proof against Sadie's powers as they try to escape the trap. Ryan reveals that he is a Loki, one of a family that created the myth of Loki. They manage to contact Dyson and he locates the device in the outside world, and takes it to Trick who attempts to get them out of it, but cannot. Hale however can sing the tune of the trap and does so allowing Bo to communicate with them. As this happens, Sadie seemingly kills Ryan and then in order to stall for time, Bo convinces Sadie that she is her biggest fan, which begins to slowly kill Bo. She however places a kiss on Sadie marking her and making Bo her Mistress for a time. Ryan returns and soon after the three escape the trap. Ciara confronts Dyson over what is going on with him and their relationship. He reveals to her that The Norn took his love in exchange for Bo's life, he cannot love her. She cannot understand why he would not give up his wolf for her husband and leaves heartbroken. Bo sees The Ash and tells him that she will not be his champion, but will be his partner to which The Ash agrees. Bo delivers Ryan's payment to him and he tells her that he is impressed by her and what she stands for. After he tells her that he doesn't care about her past and he doesn't have any to worry about, he and Bo become intimate together. Afterwards, Ryan reveals that he is Dark Fae to Bo's shock, but after he tells her that with him there are no rules, she stays with him.

Detailed Summary

The episode begins with Bo (Anna Silk) at home calling out for Kenzi (Kenzia Solo) to tell her where the sharpening stones for her weapons are as one of her knifes is dull. Kenzi does not answer her, then Bo tries to pour herself a cup of coffee, but finds the pot empty. She then notices a note from Kenzi on the table which says: "Hit the road with Nate Back Soon Love ya! -K" Bo then tries to call Kenzi on her phone, but gets Kenzi's voice mail instead. She tells Kenzi that she hopes she and Nate are having a good time "living the rock and roll dream." But then asks how many scoops of coffee to put in the coffee pot and also if she should be Lachlan's (Vincent Walsh) or not. Suddenly Bo turns around and throws the knife she had been holding at someone behind her which turns out to be Lachlan (The Ash) who catches the knife in his hand and greets her with "Morning Bo." He then tells Bo that he needs her to do a favour for him, that being bringing someone to him that has information on The Garuda that they both need.

The scene shifts to a television studio where a Blogger (Ryan Cooley) is interviewing an actress named Sadie (Lauren Holly) for his website about the series she appears in and filming her with his phone as he does so. The Blogger is smitten with Sadie and describes himself as her biggest fan, but when Sadie reaches out and takes the phone from him, she scratches him slightly and then he begins to act oddly, his skin seeming to glow or burn. Sadie asks what he likes about her and other questions, but as he does so, he seems to be suffering from some sort of attack. Sadie then bares her teeth and makes an almost animal-like growl before he falls out of the chair he had been sitting in, his skin almost grey in colour and not moving. Sadie seems disinterested in what has happened, leaving him behind as she calls for one of the crew on the set to see what's wrong.

Returning from the opening credits, The Ash and Bo are still talking. As he pours coffee, The Ash explains that the being they are looking for is called an Afreet, which according to the Ash is a subclass of the Djinn. He describes her as malevolent powerful beings with great wisdom, but there is a catch. The Afreet do not reveal their secrets unless they are enslaved. After Bo compliments The Ash on the coffee, she tells him that she doesn't like the idea of enslaving others and reminds him of what he did to Lauren. His answer is that "sometimes a leader has to make very hard decisions." He explains that Lauren has an important role to play in the coming battle and that he has placed his faith in her as a result. The Ash promises Bo that if they survive the Garuda, they can discuss "the Lauren situation" and she promises him they will do so. He continues to explain that the Afreet normally stay on their plane of existence, but Sadie has been crossing over for millennia and causing misery and grief and, as a result, The Ash feels that it is time she paid a price for what she had done. Bo is not pleased with the idea of kidnapping an actress from a movie set, but The Ash tells Bo that she should be able to find Sadie at a bar called the Swarga Lounge she has been seen at regularly, Bo should be able to trap her in a magic lamp. When Bo asks for the lamp, The Ash tells her that she will need to see a man named Lambert for it. He then tells Bo that the strange man that gave Bo a gift in the previous episode, Masks will be suppling what she needs. When Bo confronts him about this, The Ash tells her that he had hoping that she and Ryan, Lambert's first name, would "hit it off" as Ryan doesn't give his inventions to just anyone. Bo attempts to tell him what she thinks of him, but The Ash tells her that he is counting on Bo to be his champion, but Bo's reply is: "Baby steps" as she takes a last sip of coffee.

At that moment, Dyson (Kristen Holden-Ried), Hale (K.C. Collins) and Trick (Richard Howland) are at the Dal Riata recovering from the events of the last episode when the three of them were unconscious after Trick attempted to learn what the threat they are facing was. They seem none the worse for wear, save that they are all very tired looking. Dyson asks Trick what he saw, and Trick's answer is The Garuda. Trick explains to Dyson and Hale that during the Great Fae War, a single Garuda was feeding on all of the Fae, but they never knew. He also tells them that what The Garuda wants is for Trick to unwrite the laws that he used to stop the last war so that it can being a new one.

Returning to Bo, she is examining the bracelet that Ryan gave her at the party with some suspicion when her phone rings. She reads several text messages from Kenzi that are all in internet shorthand, the last one translating as: "Love you Like a Sister Too." Then the phone rings again, and this time it is Trick calling her. Trick begins to tell Bo that he knows what is coming, but Bo interrupts him with the news that she knows already what it is. She then tells Trick that The Ash told her what the threat is and that she can't talk to him at the moment as she is on a mission for The Ash. This confuses Trick as the last time he spoke with Bo she wanted to kill The Ash. Trick asks Bo to see him as soon as possible and Bo promises to do so before Trick hangs up. He then tells Dyson that The Ash knows about everything and Dyson asks the question if The Ash is on their side, but Trick is unsure how to answer that. Dyson seems concerned about something and Trick asks him what that might be. Dyson explains that he had been forced in the previous episode to admit the truth that he cannot love Ciara (Lina Roessler). Trick tries to tell Dyson that he needed to move past Ciara in order to deal with The Garuda, but Dyson explains to him that he managed to move past Bo and he should be able to love Ciara, but he cannot and that makes no sense to him. Trick tells Dyson that only he knows what it all means, but Dyson tells Trick that there is another that does know.

We then return to Bo who walks out of a freight elevator into what looks like a laboratory of some kind filled with all kinds of devices, cars, robots and many other things. Working on a counter in the middle of the chaos is a scruffy looking man, this being Ryan Lambert (Anthony Lemke) who Bo approaches. After she gets his attention, the first thing he says is that the bracelet he gave her looks amazing on her, and Bo tells Ryan that she wears it all the time. As Bo tells Ryan that she is there to pickup a lamp. he picks up what looks like some kind of electronic belt and then asks Bo to hold up his shirt as he fastens the belt around his stomach. He then tells Bo to hit him as the belt will, according to him, protect from all impacts. However, Bo punches him in the stomach, keeling him over and he mumbles that the device needs some fine tuning. After recovering, Ryan gets back to the question of the lamp that Bo is looking for and wanders off into a back room. Bo follows him and after he discounts several lamps for their flaws and asking Bo what kind of Afreet she is hunting, Bo's answer being "the movie star type named Sadie", Ryan comments that she likely is the kind that feeds on adoration and picks up what looks like a small music box encased in clear plastic. When Bo notes that it isn't a lamp, Ryan explains that the lamp is a metaphor and that genies don't actually go into the device he shows her describing it as sort of a containment vessel.

He then demonstrates the music box to Bo, the box playing the tune She'll be Coming Round the Mountain and telling Bo that by turning the crank and playing the music, she will trap Sadie in the device. Bo doesn't believe Ryan, but he tells her that: "When you marry ancient science and modern fae technology you get surprising results." Bo tries to take the device, but Ryan stops her saying that he is hurt that Bo didn't even send him a card thanking him for the bracelet. When Bo tells him that he didn't tell her who he was, Ryan's answer is that Bo is supposed to be some sort of detective and that she should have been able to figure it out. Bo then asks him if he will give her the device, but Ryan tells her that he never gives anything to anyone, but he will sell her the device, or rather sell it to The Ash. Bo takes the device and then Ryan tells her that he could give her a workshop on how to operate it over dinner, but Bo tells him that it would be over her dead body. Ryan's answer is: "Hope not, it would be a waste of a fine body." Bo tells him that he "certainly has started a fire" which makes Ryan more amorous towards her, but Bo points over to a section of the lab where a real fire is burning. As Ryan tries to put out the fire, Bo leaves with the device.

The next scene is at the Swarga Lounge where a party is going on. Bo arrives and begins to search for Sadie, but her phone rings as Kenzi calls Bo back as she promised from her text messages earlier. Bo tries to talk to her, but Kenzi seems to be standing next to a speaker at high volume and Bo can't quite understand her. Bo then sees Sadie talking to a man nearby and tells Kenzi she has to go, ending the phone call. When she approaches Sadie, Bo discovers to her surprise that Ryan is there talking to Sadie and he calls her over.

Returning from commercial, Bo walks over to Ryan who introduces her to Sadie as an "extra special client of mine." Sadie compliments Bo on her hair, and asks where she has it done, to which Bo's answer is "my bathroom." Sadie makes some small talk about sending her stylist to Bo's bathroom, and asks Bo what her story is. Bo avoids answering the question, save for mentioning that she "freelances" but Ryan mentions that Bo actually consults at a high level and it is a very "hush-hush" thing. As Ryan talks, Sadie and Bo's gaze lock on each other, and Sadie reaches out to touch Bo, but Ryan interrupts her which snaps Bo out of what Sadie was doing to her. She then walks away with Ryan, telling him that she wants to buy him a drink. When they are both well away from Sadie, Bo confronts Ryan asking what he is doing there. At the bar, the bartender (Anna Cyzon) makes small talk with Ryan, seeming to have been in a relationship of some kind with him. After the bartender leaves to get Ryan a drink and Bo a glass of water, Bo begins to grill Ryan about what he is doing there. Ryan attempts to lie to Bo about being at his favourite bar and eventually presents Bo with a small booklet of instructions on how to operate the device she possesses.

Bo takes the booklet, but Ryan also tells her that he didn't get her phone number and that she shouldn't play at being hard to get. Bo tells him that she isn't playing. Then she tells him that all he told her was to crank the handle to trap Sadie, but Ryan explains that she also has to say the magic word for it to work. But to give Bo the magic word. he wants to watch what happens as he has never seen an Afreet be captured before. Bo looks at him in disbelief, and realizes that Ryan doesn't know if the device he created will in fact work. Ryan claims it will, but admits that he isn't completely sure either but if it doesn't work, Bo probably would want him there. Bo agrees and asks for the magic word which turns out to be "abracadabra" to her disbelief. They then look across the room at Sadie who is talking to a young woman. Bo asks Ryan how long he has known Sadie, but asks if she is jealous. He then tells Bo that he isn't sure what her powers are, but most Afreet can turn people into animals, some can turn into fire breathing dragons, or inanimate objects. He also tells Bo that every Djinn can be controlled in one of two ways: either place them in a lamp, or, put your mark on them. Ryan then asks what Bo is doing for breakfast, telling her that he knows a place in Budapast. Bo is shocked and tells him that he has seriously misread her if he thinks that she is impressed by a private jet. Ryan tells her that: "No matter how independent a woman is, she secretly wants to be taken care of." Bo's answer is: "Every guy secretly wants a boot to the face." Ryan agrees.

We then move to The Norn's home which was last seen in the final episode of the first season, Blood Lines. The Norn (Kate Trotter) finds Dyson waiting for her and seems bemused by his being there. She tells him that he has nothing left to give her, but asks, "what foolish deal do you want to make today?" Dyson accuses her of taking more than she agreed to and in return The Norn warns Dyson that "he who has the manhood to accuse a Norn of treachery may soon find himself with no manhood at all." She asks how she wronged him and Dyson tells her that she promised to take only his love for Bo. Her answer is that Dyson knows full well that when a wolf mates he mates for life. When he gave his love to Bo he gave her all of it, leaving nothing within him. When The Norn took his love, there was nothing left behind. Dyson bares his teeth at this news and then leaves with The Norn laughing as he does so.

Back at the party, Sadie is seen walking away with the young woman she had been talking to. Bo sees her leave and follows her with Ryan rushing to follow Bo as she does so. They discover the woman in distress, close to death. Bo wants to get a doctor, but Ryan tells her that there isn't any doctor that can help the woman. Bo asks in frustration if Sadie had teleported away, but Ryan whispers that isn't likely and she might still be there. When Bo comments that she wished that Sadie was still there, that she wanted to talk to her, Sadie appears out of thin air and demands to know why Bo and Ryan are following her. Bo then reveals the device and turns the handle making the music play. She then says the magic words, but the device doesn't seem to work. Ryan then tries to take hold of the device, but it slips out of his and Bo's hands falling to the floor and breaking. Immediately afterwards, Sadie fades from view and the scene ends focused on the broken device on the floor.

Returning from commercial again, we find Sadie, Bo and Ryan standing in a hallway. Sadie angrily accuses them of placing her in a lamp and then begins to create fireballs in one of her hands to attack Bo and Ryan with. She throws one, which misses and Bo suggests that they all calm down and then talk about everything while they toast marshmallows. Sadie throws a few more fireballs as Ryan attempts to activate a sliding wall to protect them. As he does so, he tells Bo to use the bracelet against Sadie. Bo then uses it to block the fireballs and destroy them, making Ryan comment that: "That has to be worth a thank you card." Finally he activates the wall which separates them from Sadie. The pair then are seen running up a flight of stairs towards another part of what turns out to be the internal workings of the device which is a trap to contain Sadie. However, when they get to the place that Ryan needs to be, it turns out that the door that should be there isn't and he tries to remember what he was doing at the time he was creating the trap. That turns out to be that he was slightly drunk after sampling single malts and trying to figure out what distillery to buy. Bo then asks him what kind of Fae he is and Ryan tells her that he is a Loki.

Bo is shocked and asks if he is the Norse God of mischief, but Ryan explains further that he is "a Loki" and that there is a very large family of them in the world. He explains that the myth is a PR thing, but does admit that the mischief part is true. He stops in front of a door and after a few moments, Bo opens it to reveal a series of gears spinning inside of it which indicates that the entire device is run by them. Ryan begins to work on the gears, but as he does so, he asks Bo what her story is, telling her that being a Succubus must be great. When Bo tries to tell him it isn't he interrupts her saying that he'd like to keep his fantasies. He then asks if pleasuring herself works or not which Bo tells him is none of his business. But Ryan presses on in a clinical manner asking what happens, but Bo tells him that it just makes her hungrier. Ryan's comment is: "I can give you something for that." He then shorts out something in the space he was working on and tells Bo that she should be able to get reception on her phone now, to which Bo says that at least she can answer the five hundred texts that Kenzi has sent her. Ryan however tells her that all she has time to do is to call whoever she has on speed dial.

Out in the world, Dyson is back at the Dal with Trick as his phone rings with a call from Bo. She tells Dyson that she is trapped in a lamp which looks like a music box and where it is. She has just enough time to ask Dyson for help before her phone shorts out and the call disconnects. Trick asks if there is a problem and Dyson's answer is "sounds like." Back in the trap, Sadie has found Bo and Ryan once again, however Ryan leads Bo into an elevator and the two manage to escape her for the moment. When they exit the elevator on another floor of the trap, Ryan tells Bo that they are in the top floor. However, when the elevator doors close, they vanish leaving a solid wall in their place. Ryan then opens a panel in another wall and begins work on trying to fix this problem. Dyson in the meantime has arrived at the party and has discovered the broken music box on the floor and picks it up. Ryan at that moment burns himself on the gears in the wall and stops working on them for a time. Ryan tries to make light of the situation by saying that he knows that he is good because he built a trap that he cannot escape from, but Bo is unimpressed.

He asks why she isn't thrilled to be on a genie hunt, and her answer is that all of Faedom is depending on her, but Ryan doesn't believe her and laughs about it. He then asks Bo what the deal is between her and The Ash and Bo tells Ryan that The Ash wants her to be his champion, but sounds like he wants to own her. Ryan then tells Bo that it makes sense that The Ash wants her: "You're awesome. You don't want to be owned and that's what's amazing about you. When you go out and try to save the world you aren't doing it for the Light or the Dark, you are doing it for you. When you put your ass at risk it's not because you are someone's puppet. You do it because it is your ass to risk. Guess I would ride to hell and back to support that." Bo seems to be touched by what Ryan says, but then he adds: "Plus I really hate to be bored." Bo is about to say something to him when Ryan suddenly rushes back to the gears in the wall and after a moment, makes the elevator doors appear again. The pair then approach the now open doors to see no elevator there, and only the empty shaft. Ryan stops Bo from getting too close and looks inside, but is then thrown down the shaft by Sadie who appears behind him to his seeming death. She then turns to Bo and tells her that she is next.

Back from another commercial break, Bo tells Sadie that she has killed their only means of escape, but Sadie doesn't want to listen to her, saying that she needs to be out in the world to be admired. Then Sadie begins to glow and tells Bo that she will burn so hot that the trap will be destroyed. Bo then tells Sadie that she can't do so because now she can spend time with Sadie finally and adore her. But in spite of Bo's attempt to convince Sadie of this, she doesn't seem to be able to and the reason for that is the bracelet that Bo is still wearing which seems to be protection against Sadie's powers. With little choice, Bo takes off the bracelet and then Sadie asks Bo to tell her what she loves about her. Trick examines the broken music box and declares that he cannot repair the damage. Dyson is frustrated by this and demands Trick tell him who can fix it. Hale then interrupts and reminds them that he has perfect pitch and he might be able to solve the problem. He listens to the notes of the music box and then recreates the tune using his own voice. As he does so, Bo fades partially out of the trap as Sadie feeds off her energy and then appears as a faint image to Trick, Dyson and Hale. Dyson asks her what is going on and Bo tells them that she is trapped with an Afreet and she is trying to keep her "from going supernova."

After another break, Sadie is seen taking energy from Bo and she tells Trick, Dyson and Hale that it hurts and she needs to know how to control Sadie. Trick tells her that the one that possesses the lamp can control her, but it is broken. He then tells Bo again about leaving a personal mark on Sadie, but it has to be a charmed one. Bo has an idea and tells them to put her back inside. Hale sings the tune backwards and Bo returns fully into the trap. Once back inside, Bo punches Sadie in the jaw which stops her from feeding on Bo. Bo then apologizes saying that being with Sadie is so overwhelming to which Sadie says that happens a lot with her. Then Bo asks for a kiss so that all of her dreams come true. Sadie agrees and then Bo gives her a hickey on the neck, leaving a personal mark on her and thus becoming Sadie's Mistress. At the same time, Ryan crawls out of the open elevator shaft commenting that he said he would fix the belt he had been working on earlier and congratulating Bo on taking control of Sadie. He then tells Bo to have Sadie burn as hot as she can straight down which will result in the trap being destroyed. But Ryan gives it a fifty-fifty chance of working. When Bo questions this, he asks her if she would rather stay in the trap with him forever. Bo then tells Sadie to burn the place down. Hale watches as the music box in his hand begins to glow brightly. He places it on a table and the box burns hotter and hotter until it explodes releasing Bo, Ryan and Sadie who appear in the room with Trick, Dyson and Hale. Bo thanks them all for their help and promises to return to tell them what happened before leaving with Ryan and Sadie in tow. After they leave, Hale asks: "was that Lethal Grace?"

The next scene is at The Ash's compound were Bo and Sadie appear in front of The Ash. The Ash is unhappy as Sadie is not in a lamp, and Bo tells him that the deal is that she will make Sadie tell him what he wants to know. Then Bo will set Sadie free and return her to her own world where The Ash will not be able to control her. He tells her that there is a battle coming and Bo tells him that the battle is only worth fighting if they remain the "good guys." He then asks if she has decided to be his champion and Bo tells him that she will be his partner, to which The Ash seems to agree.

Following this, Bo returns to Ryan's lab, where he is continuing to work on the belt again. She places a suitcase of money on the floor, which is the payment for the music box from The Ash. Ryan asks if The Ash got the information he wanted from Sadie and Bo tells him that she doesn't know. Bo then tells him that she had a good, if weird time. Ryan tells Bo that it was the best night he had seen in a decade and he thanks Bo for that. Ryan then asks if he can take Bo out on the town and show her a good time, but Bo doesn't seem to really want to do that. Bo explains that she recently went through some very emotional things and she thinks it is best that she passes on his offer. Ryan tells her that she is: "the most enthralling and inspiring and seriously ass kicking person that I have ever met. And I would be happy to make sure that you knew that every second that I was in your company. If you ever invite me in your company again that is." Then he adds: "I don't come with any baggage and I'm not interested in yours." Bo manages to tell Ryan that what he has said is "refreshing." He manages to tell Bo that he will be thinking about her just before Bo begins to tear off his clothing and the two of them become very intimate together.

Coming back from the last commercial, Trick, Hale and Dyson are still at the Dal when Ciara (Lina Roessler) walks in looking for Dyson. She confronts him and demands to know what exactly is going on with their relationship or she will leave for Zurich and never return. Faced with this ultimatum, Dyson explains to Ciara that he learned that something was broken inside of him that day. That it can't be fixed. He then explains to her that he saw a Norn, but Caira claims to understand, that she heard the rumours about his doing so and that she does not blame him for her husband Stefan's death. Dyson explains that he did deal with a Norn, but not at that time, but recently to save Bo's life. Dyson tells Ciara that he offered his wolf, but his love was taken instead. Ciara asks if Hale or Trick knew about this, but both of them shake their heads and Dyson confirms that he is the only one responsible for what happened. He tells her that he can't love her, but if he could, he would. Ciara lashes out at him that he couldn't give up his wolf for his best friend that he knew for one hundred years, but could for a woman that he only knew for a few months. She asks him if he was willing to give up everything for Bo and Dyson admits he was. She then tells him that he is not the man she thought he was and then leaves.

The final scene of the episode shows Bo and Ryan in bed together after what seems to be a long, wild bout of sex. Ryan compliments Bo on: "that thing with the sucking and the blowing was amazing" She tells him that: "It's true, you are very good with your hands." Ryan then asks if Bo has "ever been with one of us?" Bo is confused over the question until Ryan reveals that he is Dark Fae which throws Bo into a panic. Bo tells him that she thought he was Light Fae because he worked with The Ash, but Ryan tells her that with him there are no rules and he works with many people he shouldn't. Ryan asks what the problem is and she tells him that the Dark Fae have not exactly been her friends. Ryan tells her that he is not defined by his clan and there are no rules with him and no strings attached and then he tells Bo that if she wants to walk away to do so. Bo then gets an odd look before crawling on top of him and as her eyes change colour and glow she speaks the last words of the episode which are "No rules" before starting to have sex with him once more.

Together, jinn, humans and angels make up the three sentient creations of Allah.
