Lost Girl Recap: 412 'Origin'

This week on Lost Girl Season 4: IT BEGINS! But what is it? The beginning of the end of this season? The beginning of the ultimate "Who is Bo, really?" storyline? The beginning of an explanation for that time earlier in the season when Lauren, alone, mysteriously uttered those very words? The answer is all of the above, along with bonus revelations and plot twists a-plenty. One episode to go after this one, which ends with all Hel breaking loose right before Bo’s eyes... If you have not yet seen "Origin" watch it here. Below, some highlights from the episode. [WARNING: SPOILERS, SPOILERS EVERYWHERE!]

Shortly after Hale’s admittedly moving funeral — who knew Dyson was a public speaker? — a knight appears pledging fealty to her queen. (That queen is Bo, which surprises everyone, including Bo.) Rosette works for Rainer but has arrived to protect Bo, because prophecy decrees that with the death of the Una Mens, the evil and imprisoned Per Apice (dragon; trans: The Apex) will rise. Various clues lead the trio to a spiritual centre for women and horses (don’t ask) where Rosette betrays Rainer for her true master, who kills her by way of thanks. #toughaudience. Episode’s end sees eruptions of fire and smoke proclaiming what appears to be the return to the mortal world of Bo’s father — yep, the Per Apice. Worse, Bo is married.

“SIr, there’s an unruly mob to see you.” “Do they have an appointment?”


Massimo continues to prove to be not just wiley but also incredibly hard to kill. Kenzi demands that pretty much everyone help her execute her fiancé’s murderer, even resorting to Vex. Big mistake, because it turns out that Massimo has a personal history with not just Vex but also Evony, who is...his mother. Kenzi, confused and beyond hurt, demands that Bo unclaim her and then leaves, forever. #nooooo!!! Lauren confronts Massimo and cannot prevent him eating Trick’s missing Origin Seed.

Sneaking about in the Dark Archives, Lauren finds proof of Rainer's duplicity (remember, though: we still don't know that Rainer is Rainer) and brings the information to Bo. Her discoveries include a warning that “between the warrior and the queen, one of the two shall die.” If Bo is the queen, the who is the warrior? And was Hale’s death in fact not the one that the Leviathan predicted? In a turn of events sure to shake the succuverse worse than the marriage to Rainer, Bo tells Lauren, “I chose you but you broke my heart.” Hurt or just cunning (probably a bit of both), Lauren makes Evony feel like only a human can feel, no beer or pizza required.

The doctor is in. Insidious, more like.

Trick remains on the outskirts this episode, though he does show up long enough to refuse Evony’s request for permission to kill Bo. While the Blood King’s away from The Dal, Tamsin starts free-pouring drinks and tells Bo that everyone’s favourite succubus is not, in fact, the queen — she is The Queen.
