Lost Girl: “Sleeping Beauty School” Recap

A disoriented Bo awakens to find herself on some sort of Fae ghost train.

A disoriented Bo awakens to find herself on some sort of Fae ghost train.

The Una Mens have arrived and they’re quite the scream – ask Vex. Throw in a pint sized Tamsin, an interdimensional train Bo is being held captive on, and the kiss we’ve been waiting for since Season 1 and you’ve got this past episode of Lost Girl. So let’s jump right in.

Toddler Tamsin . . . I mean Teenage Tamsin:

While inspecting the scene of the car crash that sent Dyson and Tamsin flying off a cliff last season, Dyson recounts the events of that day and how he survived by shifting. In the nearby bushes, he finds a small girl with a knack for using weapons – or rather, Tamsin reborn. After their lives are used up, Valkyries are reborn with their memories of past lives slow to follow if at all.

Due to the excessive carnage they see in their prior lives, a Valkyrie’s memory of the past comes back in bits and pieces, or sometimes not at all.

Between babysitting and young Tamsin experiencing sporadic growth spurts of 10 year, Kenzie has her babysitting work cut out for her, but its necessary. At this stage of their life cycles, Valkeries are considerably vulnerable and even more valuable. Hopefully Tamsin gets back to her full-grown self before anything bad happens to her.

Una Mens:

We finally have our first look at the Una Mens and considering its one of them torturing Vex, it’s safe to say that bad things are coming. Actually, I don’t think you can put ‘safe’ and ‘Una Mens’ in the same sentence. They seem almost disconnected from the world. One even asks Vex if this is what pain is after he’s finished being tortured and is scared out of his mind.

Two members of the Una Mens stand over a tortured Vex. Do they seek answers or more deaths?

They refer to Vex as “the last mesmer” before they decide to kill him; however, he quickly strikes a deal to give them someone else, which from the camera panning over to a death mask labeled ‘human doctor’ it seems like he’s talking about Lauren. The Una Mens accept but implant some sort of worm-like parasite in Vex. Whether this is to control him, listen in, or something more we will have to wait to find out.

Upon closer inspection of this scene, you can make out some of the other names on the death masks the Una Mens have set up in the background. The ones titled “last mesmer” and “human doctor” are clearly meant for Vex and Lauren respectively, but the others are “claimed human”, “unaligned succubus”, and “human terrorist”. We know our Bo is the “unaligned succubus”, and Kenzi is most likely the “claimed human”, but who is the “human terrorist”. As far as the Fae see it, that’s Lauren too. It seems as though the Una Mens already have their list of people to kill. Guess the interrogations/torture are just fun for them.

Hale and Kenzi Sitting in a Tree:

Well Kenzi and Hale finally did it – almost. After Dyson telling Hale to man up after 3 seasons, I mean years, Hale went to tell Kenzi exactly how he feels. Sadly the passionate make-out session that followed was interrupted by Toddler Tamsin getting a growth spurt. 

Several seasons later, we finally get the kiss we've been waiting for, but did it mean anything?

It is unclear whether this near hook-up was a direct result of Kenzi feeling the same for Hale, or because the magic potion to make women swoon over him hadn’t worn off yet. Another factor could be Kenzi’s apparent emptiness over missing Bo. Whatever it was and will be, we will once again have to wait for them to have ‘the talk’.

Endymion and Clio:

After discovering that Bo is no longer on this physical plain of being, Dyson seeks out a Elemental Fae tracker by the name of Endymion who can traverse different dimensional plains. After quite a few sidetracks, he finally finds him, but it seems as though Endymion is about 800 years rusty.

While pushing him towards an oncoming train, Clio informs Endymion that his services as Tracker are no longer required seeing as she is actually an Elemental Fae with power over all 4 element

Clio informs Endymion that his services as Tracker are no longer required.

Clio once again returns and reveals that she in fact is not only Endymion’s replacement, but that since is also an Elemental Fae who can commune with all the elements. After some heated words, Clio directs Endymion into the path of an oncoming train, making her once again the only different dimensional tracker.

Checking in with Lauren:

All the Doccubus fans out there have probably been wondering where Lauren is in all of this. Beyond the general human hatred going around the Fae World right now, Lauren is particularly being hunted due to her supposed involvement with Dyson’s kidnapping. She may have gone brunette and is now waitressing far away from all the Fae drama, but she has attracted someone else’s eye.

A brunette Lauren joyfully hugs Crystal after she deletes an incriminating Fae video off her phone.

Lauren’s new coworker Crystal certainly isn’t shy about approaching Lauren, and whereas she seems repulsed at first, by the end of the episode we see Lauren slowly starting to warm up to Crystal. Will this turn into anything more? Will we see the usual love triangle of this show turn into a Love Pentagon?

Whether you’re Team Dyson or Team Doccubus, you have to admire how Dyson and Lauren mutually respect each other. Just as Lauren saved Dyson at the end of last Season with the Fae gene transplants, Dyson now is watching over Lauren and keeping her safe. At the end of the day they both love Bo and want what’s best for her; and they cant fault the other for that.

2 Tickets to See Bo:

Those ‘Wanderer’ cards always seemed like a weird sort of calling card, but they’re actually more like invitations. These cards offer passage to a different dimensional plane – or rather train. The one currently in Dyson’s possession read MMXV (20:15) for the train to take. We last see Dyson and Clio about to board a speeding train in order to find Bo, but does Clio have her own agenda?

With the Wanderer Cards being revealed as first class tickets to another plain of existence, Dyson and Clio set off to find Bo.

Immediately before this we see her getting a call from a badly beaten Vex who wants to hire her to bring someone back alive and in one piece. Come to think of it, why would the Una Mens spare Vex’s life if he promised a human terrorist? Anyone could track Lauren down. Unless the person Vex actually gave up was Bo.

The final moments of this episode show Bo draining one of ‘The Wanderers’ maids before leaping off the train into the darkness, but will this make finding Bo easier or harder?
