Short Summary

Vex and Kenzi attend an art festival underground and witness Kenzi's friend Aussie vanish in the middle of a show as an actor is killed. Kenzi asks Bo to help her and they discover a den of Alligator Fae led by a Fae named Atticus who, it appears, threatens to reveal the Fae to the human world. Through Hale's being the Ash, Dyson discovers that the Alligator Fae are being threatened by a Pied Piper who wants them killed to allow for his own political and economic gains in having a subway built through their home. The Alligator Fae have been framed for the disappearance of humans and Fae so that this will happen. However, Bo's involvement leads to her bringing the Piper to Atticus and the two face off, Bo leaving the two of them trapped underground in battle with each other. Lauren and Bo's relationship continues to grow, the two becoming more and more intimate. Bo experiences dreams of her attacking others and taking their Chi which lead to Trick contacting a Weaver to try and help Bo with her dreams. The Weaver does so and discovers an image of Bo in a monstrous form feeding on someone. Dyson meets his new partner, Tamsin, who is Dark Fae, and is partnered with Dyson as an experiment between the Light and Dark Fae. But the two are immediately at odds with each other. Tamsin also accuses Bo of feeding on a Dark Fae and shows evidence to that effect.

Detailed Summary

The episode opens with Kenzi (Ksenia Solo), Vex (Paul Amos), and a friend of Kenzi's named Aussie (Daniel De Santo), entering an underground arts festival. Vex continually complains about why he is there, making references to Fae feeding on humans several times quite loudly. Kenzi and Aussie talk about some of the times they spent together in the not-so-good-days while Vex continues to make flippant comments. An actor in a alligator suit (Adam Barrett) appears which makes Vex attack him with a knife. Kenzi however manages to talk Vex down but not before the actor wets himself. As the three receive armbands for the show, Aussie mentions that people have gone missing underground and Kenzi tries to comfort him explaining that she and Vex will take care of the problem whatever it is. When Vex protests about not agreeing to this, Kenzi warns him to be nice. Vex then tries to be nice asking if Aussie is short for Oswald, but is told that Aussie likes Australia and that's why he calls himself Aussie. When Vex becomes snarky, Aussie asks Vex id anyone ever told him he looks like Robert Smith from The Cure. Vex replies that people have, especially an "old friend from Wales who apparently is walking again."

Meanwhile, Bo (Anna Silk) and Lauren (Zoie Palmer) are at Bo's home in bed together. The scene is very emotional, the two obviously in love with each other. In the middle of their moment Lauren comments that "I must be the only woman in history that has to pretend to be a ditz to repel sexual attraction" which makes Bo laugh in reply before drawing Lauren beneath her and continuing their moment together, Lauren then adds she is kidding and Bo's answer is that she knows Lauren is before Bo's phone goes off with a message from Trick asking Bo to see him and that it is important. When Lauren asks how important, Bo's answer is that Trick (Richard Howland) exaggerates before the two continue.

Returning to Kenzi, Vex and Aussie, the show begins with an MC (Danny Waugh) introducing the attendees to the show talking about myths and legends such as Bloody Mary and the Slender Man, before claiming that only one, the Sewer Alligator, is true and the actor from earlier in the episode appears on stage as well. As the show continues, several of the people around Kenzi and Vex begin to vanish before the lights go out for a moment. When they come back on, Aussie has vanished and the actor has been killed on the stage causing a stampede for the exit by everyone there as Kenzi calls out Aussie's name.

After the opening credits, a black and white flashback of Bo feeding on someone in the alleyway leading to the Dal Riata is shown, which occurred at the end of the previous episode Caged Fae. In the middle of Bo feeding the scene suddenly switches to Bo waking up in bed with Lauren as if from a bad dream. Lauren asks if Bo is alright, and Bo begins to explain, but then changes her mind simply saying that she is alright. Lauren then tells Bo that for the last two nights she has been with Bo, Bo has woken up screaming from her dreams. Lauren asks, teasingly, if committing to her is that terrifying, and Bo assures her that it isn't. Bo kisses Lauren goodbye, telling her to go back to sleep, but as Bo leaves the bedroom, Lauren reaches for a wine glass, tips it over, and it shatters, obviously exhausted from Bo's attentions.

Bo is walking through her home, a contemplative look on her as Kenzi and Vex barge in. Kenzi is panicking and try to explain to Bo what's happened as Vex interjects randomly interrupting her. Bo finally asks Vex if what happened was Fae, his answer being that if the actor was Fae he would have been a better actor, also commenting that Sir Laurence Olivier was Fae. After Bo clarifies that she meant Aussie disappearing, Vex's answer is that it probably was. Kenzi tells Bo that they have to go and find him and Bo agrees, telling Vex to come along. He refuses to go, saying that a Real Housewives marathon is about to begin. Kenzi then says in a false British accent: "Mother? May I kill the freeloader?" But Bo holds her back saying that Vex "isn't worth the sweat." Bo and Kenzi then leave, Bo telling Vex that: "If you go near my girlfriend, our Christmas Balls next year will have a certain panache." After they leave, Vex comments that: "Hook up illegal cable and what do I get? Threats to my junk. Typical."

The scene shifts to a gym with a tall blonde woman walking through it to catcalls from the men around her. She approaches the boxing ring where Dyson (Kristen Holden-Ried) is in the middle of a match. She calls out to Dyson's opponent: "Twenty bucks if you kill the white boy." Dyson considers her as he fights and then she reveals that she is Dyson's new partner which distracts him and allows his opponent to land a punch, knocking Dyson into the ropes facing her. His eyes change in anger and then Dyson knocks the other fighter out with a single punch, the woman commenting that she: "Bet on the wrong guy again. The story of my life." Dyson's answer is: "You should get that looked at." She finally introduces herself as Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten). Dyson replies that he was not informed about a new partner and Tamsin simply pushes on giving Dyson a case folder which she explains is a Sewer Alligator sighting. As Dyson looks at the folder, Tamsin explains that the Sewer Alligators were supposed to be quarantined, but now they will have to kill all of them, because they are causing problems for the Fae, pointing her hand like a gun to her head. Dyson comments: "Too subtle, maybe next time you can add sound effects." Dyson continues reading the file, noting that two Fae city workers have vanished and Tamsin adds one human has also been killed. Then to a comment that the Ash can't be happy about this, Tamsin reveals that she is Dark Fae and working for The Morrigan. Tamsin then goes on to explain that the two of them are part of a "peace project" between the Dark and Light Fae. When Tamsin prods Dyson about attacking defenceless humans, meaning the fighter in the ring, Dyson reveals that the fighter's wife had been attacked by him and he was returning the favour.

We next find Bo and Kenzi underground looking for Aussie. Bo asks how Kenzi knew about the storm drain they used and Kenzi explains that after she ran away from home, she lived in the sewers and other underground places because she had nowhere else to go. Some street people told Kenzi of the abandoned subway line and the tent city that sprung up there and that is where she met Aussie, who saved Kenzi when she was suffering from pneumonia. Aussie was thirteen at the time. Bo comments that there is so much she don't know about Kenzi and Bo adds that she never needed to live underground. Kenzi's answer is that for humans it's not as easy as it is for a Succubus using her powers to make someone fall in love with them. The pair stop walking and Kenzi tries to apologize, saying that it "cam out wrong." Bo tells Kenzi that she gets it as Bo's phone rings.

The call is from Trick, who Bo greets as her "favourite Grampi", but before he can talk to Bo, a woman at the bar asks for a drink. Trick explains that he found a Weaver to help Bo with her nightmares and that he wants Bo to come to see him as soon as possible. Trick explains that the past eight hours have been the worst of his life as the Weaver, named Eunice (Phyllis Ellis) is "haunting" him, appearing to have a crush on Trick or at least is really interested in him. Bo then explains about the search she and Kenzi are on for Aussie and Trick begs them to please hurry back as soon as they can. After the call ends, Bo and Kenzi find themselves looking at a very old sign that warns of an area which is quarantined. As they try to figure out where to go next, a blindfolded man appears out of the darkness, his hands groping in the air towards Bo and Kenzi.

Returning from commercial, the man turns away suddenly to capture a rat and kill it, placing the remains in a bucket as Bo and Kenzi watch. When the man, who appears to be blind and most certainly Fae, crawls through an opening and disappears, Bo and Kenzi follow to discover a den of similar Fae, all blind and held together in this one place. Bo describes them as "Fae that live like animals", Kenzi's thoughts are: "They took my friend." Then Kenzi's flashlight finds a leg and follows that to the body of what seems to be a member of the police SWAT team before the Fae surround the two of them. Bo manages to joke: "Would you believe we took the wrong turn at Albuquerque?" They are then taken to a Fae who speaks in a Southern accent who's first words to them are that he hopes that they have not been treated poorly as they do not like trespassers. Bo attempts to explain that they are not trespassers, but the Fae interrupts telling Bo that it is impolite to interrupt one's host. Bo confronts him about kidnapping Aussie and as well the dead Fae police officer they found. He explains that sight is a funny thing and when you have lived in the dark as long as he has, and lost it, only then can you "truly begin to live in the light and know what is right." Bo tells him that ripping a man to shreds is barbaric, but the Fae brushes that off as a simple culling of an animal.

Meanwhile, Dyson and Tamsin are investigating the murder of the actor at the beginning of the episode. Dyson examines the body and notices that the bite pattern seen seems wrong. Dyson then smells something that he calls ""familiar" around them. The two then take verbal jabs at each other over working as detectives together, Dyson commenting that he would be a fool to trust someone from Tamsin's team. Her answer is to ask if he means Dark Fae or women as she walks away.

Back with Bo, Kenzi and the Fae, Bo warns him that if he touches Kenzi, she will "become a lot less civilized." He then speaks of his past, which involved presenting himself in front of Fae nobles for their amusement. He speaks of his family, a wife and child, how they were collected by a man in black who took them all away to be quarantined where they are now because of a disease they had contracted. He then reveals his name is Atticus (Jordan Pettle) as he tells of his family asking for help, which he was unable to give and he followed with the rest as the man in black took them all away. He also tells that the disease was simply a means to the Fae like him losing their lands and homes, not actually becoming ill until they had been sealed underground. Atticus also speaks of an urge for revenge against the man in black that caused all of the pain that his kind is going through now. Kenzi then accuses Atticus of taking Aussie, but replies that: "Sight cannot be trusted my dear." Kenzi then tries to attack him, but Bo intervenes saying that they will leave him in peace. Atticus then asks if they know their way to the surface, which they do not, before locking them in the room and gas seeps in around Bo and Kenzi.

Returning from commercial, Vex is wearing one of Bo's kimonos and eating cereal as she waits for Bo and Kenzi to wake up as they lay in bed together. When they do, he asks: "So, go on then, how was it to finally consummate your marriage?" Bo and Kenzi are confused, not knowing how they got home and when Bo asks how they got there, his answer is: "years of latent sexual tension." Bo asks if Vex is wearing her kimono again and Vex answers that he had it altered to fit him just before Bo and Kenzi attack Vex with pillows from Bo's bed. Dyson then walks in and witnesses the scene which makes him smile. Then Tamsin appears and walks up to Bo unimpressed with her. Bo's answer is to not back down and ask: "Who the hell are you?"

Bo arrives at the police station with Dyson and Tamsin, the three immediately entering the interrogation room and Kenzi waiting outside. After some small talk, Dyson asks Bo why he sensed her "perfume" at the crime scene they were investigating. Bo explains about Aussie's disappearance and that she and Kenzi were looking for him. Dyson reveals that other humans and two Fae workers had been also taken, as a result, Dyson reveals they have been ordered to exterminate the underground Fae. Bo tells Dyson about the dead SWAT team member she saw in return. Then Tamsin interrupts and accuses Bo of feeding on other Fae, which is illegal and punishable by death. Photos of the crime scene are shown to her, to Dyson's complete surprise and he attempts to defend Bo. When Tamsin asks what she will tell The Morrigan, Bo's answer is: "To tell her to shove it." Bo then turns to Dyson in confusion that his partner is Dark Fae, but before he can answer Tamsin presses on asking where Bo was one week ago at eleven in the evening. Dyson answers that saying that he was with Bo releasing her from prison, referring to last week's episode. As this is happening, Kenzi waits outside and looks at a board with missing persons on it, but a police officer covers the board when he sees Kenzi looking at it. Tamsin continues to grill Bo trying to make her admit to the crime she is accused of, noting that the Fae she fed on is in a coma elsewhere. Bo ignores her and reminds Dyson about Kenzi's friend who has been kidnapped before asking Tamsin if there was something else she wanted so say. Dyson tries to explain to Bo about the Sewer Alligators, but Bo interrupts saying that the Fae is charge is named Atticus, and Dyson explains that Atticus is threatening to "out" the Fae. As Bo and Dyson continue to talk, Tamsin collects the file on what appears to be Bo's feeding and then walks out of the room. Bo tells Dyson that his new partner is a real peach, Dyson replies that he wouldn't use that word.

As Bo and Dyson continue to talk about her, Tamsin pours a pot of coffee over Dyson's desk, ruining everything there which makes Dyson rush outside to stop her. Dyson confronts her asking what she is playing at, Tamsin pushes Dyson to explain his relationship with Bo. Dyson tells her that he knows Bo didn't do it. Tamsin scoffs saying that: "Why? Because when they were giving out brains you took a second deck?" Dyson then reveals that Bo has been feeding cleanly and safely for two years. He reminds Tamsin that it isn't about him and Bo but the facts. Her response is to agree that the coffee was a bit much, but a lot of the facts still lead in Bo's direction. Dyson then gives Tamsin a warning that if she wants to be partners she will need to control herself. As their conversation ends, Hamelin (Ted Atherton) arrives and tells Dyson and Tamsin to follow him. After they leave, Bo motions Kenzi to open the door, which she does, and an officer attempts to stop them from leaving. However, Bo uses her powers on him and takes control of him. At that moment, Hamelin, Dyson and Tamsin are elsewhere talking about Bo being involved in the situation underground. Dyson explains that Bo will be involved until Kenzi's friend is rescued which throws Hamelin into a panic. He tells Dyson that if Aussie is down there, he could be infected and that would make things worse. He also tells Dyson that saving Aussie is not possible and that is a direct order from The Ash, Hale. Hamelin puts pressure on Dyson to get the problem solved as his human role as City Manager is in jeopardy with the Mayor. He tells Dyson to keep Bo locked up, but by this time Bo and Kenzi have escaped. Tamsin growls in anger: "That bitch is doomed."

Bo and Kenzi arrive home and gather their weapons, Kenzi worried that they are already too late. There is a knock at the door and assuming that it is Dyson and Tamsin, begin to leave out a window, but the door opens and Aussie walks in. Kenzi asks what happened and Aussie claims that they went to the show and then drinking together the night before. Kenzi tries to explain that didn't happen, but before she can do so, Aussie sinks to the floor, struck by some kind of illness. They take him to Trick where Eunice proceeds to see what is troubling Aussie's mind. After asking for a hair from Aussie she weaves the hair into a loom. Trick tells Bo as this happens that he isn't happy about having an unclaimed human in the Dal Riata when he has sixty Ogres there for a rugby reunion. Eunice demands silence and also tells Trick that he owes her a private dinner for dealing with a human, something she never does. As Aussie's memories are revealed they show him being held somewhere with a group of others and the last image is a shipping container number. Trick recognizes some of the images as a shipyard, St. Thomas Shipyard, he used in the 1700s and Bo is confused as to how he knows. Trick explains that the statue in Aussie's memories is that of St. Thomas, although the bible seen is usually held in the right hand of the statue. Aussie's condition becomes worse, blood now coming from his eyes as well as his nose. Leaving Aussie in Trick's hands, Bo and Kenzi leave for the shipyard and look for the container. Kenzi moans that: "There isn't an app for navigating shipyards, but there is an app to turn people into zombies." Kenzi is confused as none of them have a number like they saw. Bo explains that the view was a mirror image and the numbers, like the statue's bible are backwards. They find the container and open it to discover the missing humans and the two worker Fae.

After the commercial break, Dyson and Tamsin are getting ready to assault the Sewer Alligators when Bo walks in. Tamsin immediately shoves Bo against a wall before thanking her for coming back. Bo tells her: "Relax bitch. I brought gifts." Kenzi then arrives with the missing humans and Tamsin releases Bo in disgust. Once again Dyson, Bo and Tamsin go into the interrogation room where Bo tries to explain that she does not believe that Atticus is responsible for the kidnapping of the humans and Fae because he and his kind cannot exist in the light any longer. Tamsin refuses to believe this and Bo continues to lay out her evidence that Atticus could have killed her and Kenzi, but didn't and that, to Bo, does not sound like a cold-blooded killer. Dyson stops Bo and tells her to stay out of things and let them do what they have to do. Then Hamelin arrives and takes Dyson and Tamsin away, leaving Bo again alone in the interrogation room with Kenzi outside. Hamelin then demands to know why the Sewer Alligator Fae have not been dealt with. Dyson explains that Bo found the missing humans and Fae and her evidence suggests that they are not guilty of the crime. Hamelin then reminds Dyson that he is under a direct order and that Dyson will eliminate them immediately. Dyson tells Hamelin that he will take this up with the Ash, Hale, before anything happens. As all of this happens, Bo escapes again, once more using her powers in the same police officer as before. Tamsin then tells Dyson that if she didn't hate Bo so much she actually might like her. Dyson's answer is: "She has that effect on people."

Bo and Kenzi have returned underground and are on their way to see Atticus when a dark figure appears behind them and follows nearby. In the meantime, Hale (K.C. Collins) arrives at the police station and is greeted by the officers there. There is some banter between them which reveals that they believe that Hale won the powerball lottery and is the reason for him no longer being a detective. Dyson takes Hale aside and tells him that he has an issue with how Hale is dealing with Atticus and his people. When Hale tells Dyson that they have made a new home for Atticus and the others, Dyson is shocked as this is not what he had been told to do. Hale also reveals that they are doing this because it is the right thing to do and not just because of the new subway line being built through that part of the city. Dyson thanks Hale and then rushes off. Bo and Kenzi turn a corner underground and remark that they have a bad feeling when Hamelin appears behind them and changes form, his arms lengthening and his face reshaping. Bo and Kenzi are taken under his sway, their eyes changing as he controls them and he orders them to show him the secret way to where Atticus is.

After the commercial ends, Dyson is seen running through the tunnels in search for Bo and Kenzi as they crawl through into Atticus' home with Hamelin close behind. When Bo snaps out of Hamelin's control, she asks what he is. Hamelin reveals that he has been known as the Slender Man, the Erlkonig, and is best known, according to him, as the Pied Piper. Seeing that Kenzi is in pain, Bo demands that he stop hurting her, but he refuses. Bo then realizes that in fact the Fae and others were never sick, the bleeding is a sign of how Hamelin feeds. When Bo wonders what the Elder Fae would say if they knew what he was doing, the answer Hamelin gives is that it "tastes so good." He admits that after the Fae were taken below ground he was supposed to release them, but did not. He also reveals that if someone has eyes, then he has power over them, his feed becomes transfixed by the music they hear. Bo tells him that he is disgusting, and Hamelin replies that Bo is no better, referring to her Dark Fae feed. Before Kenzi can ask what's going on Atticus appears and says he had to interrupt because he hadn't heard Hamelin's voice in over ninety years. The two greet each other and Hamelin approaches Atticus, however when Hamelin tries to use his powers, they do not work to his surprise. When Atticus speaks of not having sight, Hamelin then attacks him, but before Hamelin can crush Atticus with a boulder, Dyson arrives and stops him. When Dyson tells Hamelin that he is taking him to jail, Bo offers a better idea to which Atticus readily agrees to. He then leaves to face Hamelin as Bo collapses the roof of the tunnel that leads to where the two Fae battle each other, the last image of the two as Atticus bites into Hamelin's neck.

After the final commercial break, Dyson is in the boxing ring with Tamsin, she landing several blows on him as they spar. After taking several more hits without striking one in return, Dyson asks if she has had enough and Tamsin tells Dyson that she has had enough of him and Bo. Then she strikes him once more and tells Dyson that was for ditching her to help Bo, who she calls Dyson's girlfriend. Tamsin then tells Dyson that: "There is so much more to life than that unaligned cooze." Then she kisses Dyson and asks him if she "tastes good", Dyson's answer is that she does, but he still doesn't want a new partner. Her answer is that she doesn't either. Tamsin then reveals that the Dark Fae that she believes Bo fed from has been moved to a Dark Fae compound and when he wakes up, they will have the proof she needs to have Bo killed.

Meanwhile, Bo is in the Dal Riata and tells Trick about what happened in the aftermath. All of those sick stopped being so and she tells Trick that Hamelin had been feeding off the Fae for almost one hundred years. Trick tells Bo that everything that Hamelin did was stupid and cruel and he tells her that the Fae owe her again for what she has done for them. Bo's answer is that she is just happen that Atticus and his kind have been relocated. Eunice then steps in and takes Bo aside to see what is troubling her. Trick moves to stay but Eunice tells Trick it would be like reading her diary and Bo assures him that it will be okay. Trick then leaves and then Eunice settles Bo in before running the spinning wheel to see what is troubling Bo. What appears is an image of a monstrous looking Bo feeding on someone. This frightens Eunice who abruptly ends the session and leaves in a rush. Bo asks what it was and Eunice tells her it was beautiful and she thinks it was: "something you ate."

The final scene in the episode is Bo looking around in confusion and, for a fleeting moment, the image of the monstrous Bo is visible before it vanishes. Bo then sits down and mumbles to herself: "Why are people always lying to me?" as the episode ends.

Questions in this Episode

  • What kind of Dark Fae is Tamsin? This is not revealed in this episode. However, some articles have described her as being a Valkyrie. What they are in the Lost Girl universe has not been revealed.
  • Who's idea was it to partner Dyson and Tamsin together? Was it Hale to promote a better relationship between the Light and Dark or The Morrigan that did so in order to drive a wedge between Bo and Dyson?
  • When Bo and Lauren are in bed together at the beginning of the episode, did Bo feed at all on Lauren? Or, more interestingly, did Bo give Lauren some of her energy?
  • Sir Laurence Olivier, according to Vex, was Fae. Knowing how Vex exaggerates, it is unlikely, but...
  • Assuming that Weavers can see into the dreams of others, it is seeing just dreams or are they foretelling the future?
  • With regards to Tamsin herself, there is this interesting page on the net about a character that seems strangely appropriate. Specifically this part: Tamsin has a tendency to judge some people quicker than others. She might not always act on these judgements, but people clearly not adhering to her (romanticized) standards of nobility will need to work hard(er) to prove themselves to this woman.
  • The image of Bo as a monster at the end of the episode brings the question, as it does in this series, if this is prophecy or a possibility or Bo's fear.
  • We are still not sure what is happening to Bo, if she is turning Dark or not.
  • Why is Tamsin so hateful of Bo? What is the reason for this?
  • Is Tamsin supposed to become a new love interest for Dyson? Why would Tamsin be when his love for Bo has been returned to him?
  • Will Dyson and Tamsin actually partner up or will this just be constant snarking back and forth?

Answers in this Episode

  • Tamsin is Dark Fae and has been partnered with Dyson as an "experiment" to help with peace between the Light and Dark Fae.
  • Hale appears to no longer be a detective, his cover being that he won the lottery and has retired from the police force. This allows him to be The Ash full-time.
  • The man that Bo attacked in the previous episode was Dark Fae and did survive the attack, but is in a coma.
  • Bo apparently has no memory of her attacking the Dark Fae at the end of the previous episode. However she does dream of it and has woken up at least twice screaming from the dream.
  • Vex's arm still appears to be injured in this episode.
  • When Kenzi left home, she lived underground until she met Bo. At one point she lived in an underground tent city that was hidden in an abandoned subway line.
  • A Weaver in the Lost Girl universe is a Fae that uses hair from others to see into their minds, adding that hair to a spinning wheel that reveals images to the Weaver of what is haunting a person. There is a real world mythology about Weavers which you can find here.
  • Sewer Alligators in the Lost Girl universe are Reptilian Under Fae. There is an urban myth about them which you can find here.
  • Based on Tamsin's statements to Bo, the previous episode occurred exactly one week prior. Specifically when Bo seemingly fed on the Dark Fae in the alleyway.
  • According to Dyson, Bo has been feeding cleanly and safely for two years.
  • Hamelin is a Pied Piper. In the Lost Girl universe, this is a Fae that has a measure of mind control as a power and feeds through the eyes of their pray. You can find out more about the original myth here.
