Lost Girl: S5 E7 Here Comes the Night

Kris Holden-Ried and Anna Silk in a scene from Lost Girl

This episode of Lost Girl takes place at night. A night when the electricity is off. It was shot with blue light and is very hard to see. I hope the screen grabs aren’t too dark. I did brighten them up quite a bit.

Spoilers ahead.

Bo and Dyson rescue people trapped in a car

There’s a tornado. Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried), Bo (Anna Silk), and Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) are rescuing people. Tamsin tells Bo they can handle anything together, because Bo is her girl.

Bo stands in the triangular symbol

Bo finds this huge symbol in the street at the scene of the tornado.

Zee with the 3 oracles

Elizabeth Helm / Zee (Amanda Walsh) has the 3 oracles in her hotel room. Bo’s friend Cassie (Vanessa Matsui) is one of them. The 3 of them stand up and chant, “Only in the darkness can we see the light.” Then poof, Zee knocks out all the lights in the city.

Three oracles constitute the Moirai. Only Zeus can control the Moirai. Ergo, Zee is short for Zeus. Wait, Zeus is a woman?

Lauren and Sam watch the TV news

Lauren (Zoie Palmer) and her assistant Sam (Gabe Grey) have a clinic full of injured people. They watch the TV news, which calls the storm “bizarrely localized.”

Bo, Dyson and Tamsin show up at the clinic and report on what’s happening. They plan to leave again, but Bo decides to stay because it might be the ancient ones trying to create an opportunity to get the switcheroo serum.

Before Tamsin leaves, she kisses Bo. Dyson is watching. Bo looks at Dyson and he raises one eyebrow but doesn’t comment.

Bo and Lauren have a moment of meaningful eye contact just as all the lights go out. Lauren’s first thought is the power supply to Evony’s cryobox that contains something old and evil.

Trick with a book

Trick (Rick Howland) reads about how Zeus flooded the earth to destroy mankind. Zeus used Hera’s messenger Iris to do it. Poof, the lights go out.

Trick asks Vex (Paul Amos) to find more candles.

Vex and Mark kissing

Vex is busy swigging wine and finding candles when Mark (Luke Bilyk) comes in, looking and acting very sexy. He kneels in front of Vex and does whatever it is that someone does to a guy while kneeling before him. I obviously have no idea what is happening. When he stands up they start kissing. Vex is bewildered by how much he likes it, even while saying, “This is very wrong.”

Tamsin is wet from the storm

Tamsin goes into the gym, dripping wet from the storm. She shows Dyson a poster that Alycia Welles  (Lisa Marcos) posted about her supposedly dead husband Vincent (Noam Jenkins). We know him as Heratio.

Dyson wants Tamsin to do one thing, she wants to do another: she wants to go to the clinic. He reminds her that there will always be other people for Bo. Tamsin is only worried about one other person.

Bo and Lauren with the box of evil

Lauren struggles with Evony’s box of evil. It’s on a back-up generator with a back-up generator. All of them failed. It starts counting down and saying “Evacuate.” They push it in a room and it pops open like a jack-in-the-box. Nothing but a bit of smoke comes out.

Bo and Lauren watch the box open

Lauren curses Evony. Bo says that all of this is to make Evony Fae again. Lauren says, “No.” Then she rethinks and says, “Yeah. It is.” She points to her ear.

Lauren and Bo dancing

Lauren puts on music and pulls Bo close in a dance. She whispers in Bo’s ear. “I know what I’m doing. You need to trust me. I’m doing the research I want to do and it has nothing to do with Evony.” Bo comments that Lauren knows how to seize an opportunity. Lauren says, “Well, for some of us, life is short.”

Bo and Lauren kissing

Bo interprets that as an invitation to not waste a moment. Seize the besame mucho. She kisses Lauren.

Dead Man Dating is still around

Dyson goes to Alycia Welles house and finds Elevator Man / Dead Man Dating / Heratio. Dyson asks to come in a take a statement.

Bo and Lauren having sex

Tamsin arrives in the clinic and finds Bo and Lauren enjoying each other.

Tamsin

Tamsin is not happy about what she sees. I love snarky, badass Tamsin, but it’s interesting to see Rachel Skarsten act vulnerable and heartbroken for a change.

At the Dal, Mark asks Vex to help him with something. Vex says, “Again?” but Mark doesn’t seem to know what Vex is alluding to. He acts as if he doesn’t know what happened earlier.

Evony

Evony (Emmanuelle Vaugier) enters the Dal. Vex introduces her to Mark, whom she deems flirt-worthy. Vex gets a little jealous. Evony wants Vex’s help because “you know what will get out” now that there’s a power outage.

Bo and Lauren in bed

Bo and Lauren are still between the sheets, where Bo wishes they could stay forever. Lauren gets up to go for some special wine. She walks into the clinic in nothing but her lab coat to find Sam standing there with his back to her.

Sam looks tarred

She spins him around to find that he’s dead. His face looks scorched or melted. Bo realizes there is an invisible monster.

Dyson

Dyson tries to get information about of Vincent / Heratio. Dyson tells him he knows who is. Heratio starts strangling Alycia. Dyson tries to stop him and calls him Zeus.

Dyson with a face full of flies

He says, “My name is Hera.” Wait, Hera is a guy? He blows a swarm of gadflies into Dyson’s face to torment him. When he turns back to continue his strangling, Alycia stabs him. He leaves to repair his bothersome human body but promises Alycia he’ll be back to get her.

Bo and Lauren talk

In the clinic, Lauren says she hasn’t felt so guilty since her Karen Beattie days. Bo can’t believe she’s telling her this now, but says, “Karen Beattie all over me.” Lauren says people died and it was her fault. Bo wants her to leave, go somewhere safe. Lauren grabs an ax and announces she’s ready to stay and fight whatever it is with Bo.

Alycia

Dyson takes Alycia to the gym where she feels more secure. He gives her a cot and tells her to rest. He goes into the room where his murder board is.

Bo

Bo comes up behind Dyson. She doesn’t smell right, but she’s seductive and he’s willing to lock lips.

Evony and Vex

Evony and Vex are at the clinic, looking for the serum. They hear a noise. Evony says, “If it gets close, you know what to do.” Apparently Vex saved her once before from whatever was in the cryobox.

Evony sees a wall safe with plants in front of it. She wins best line of the episode, “Of course the serum is behind a bush. When will I learn.”

Lauren and Bo confront Evony

Lauren and Bo are there. Lauren confronts Evony about trying to steal her work. Evony says nothing can kill the thing that was unleashed. Bo thinks they should give it what it wants most: Evony. And, hello, Evony used to date one of the ancient Fae.

Evony and her old flame

In an alley, Evony waits. Bait. The Moirai come marching along saying, “Only in the darkness can we see the light.” They disappear and Lauren throws her ax into something invisible. It takes form as some sort of slippery looking black thing, but Evony seems to recognize him. She calls him Eros. Evony gets tears in her eyes when she recalls how he broke her heart.

Eros is zapped by a bolt of lightning. Bo says, “Zeus’ lightning. Takes an ancient to kill an ancient.”

Isabeau appears to Trick

Isabeau (Alisen Down) appears before Trick. She’s about to kiss Trick when Mark walks in. What Mark sees is Trick with the 3 oracles trying to kiss him. The oracles run off.

Dyson and Vex clatter down the stairs. Trick says, “Has anyone else had an unusual interaction today? Perhaps something sexual in nature?” Dyson and Vex raise their hands. Mark does not.

It’s Oracle Vision. The oracles touch lips to take truth. When the oracles are doing their lip lock visits, they are required to deliver truth themselves. They appear as the person a heart most desires. (That means the person Vex most desires is Mark!)

Trick realizes it’s because they all have Bo’s blood. Only in the darkness can they see the light. The light is Bo’s blood. Zeus wants Bo’s truth.

Bo goes home. She’s about to blow out the candle she brought from Hell when the oracles arrive.

Just one kiss from your lovely lips

The oracles are closing in for a kiss. First they appear to Bo as Dyson, then Lauren. Bo realizes it isn’t real. Next she sees a gravelly voiced man. Bo looks at him and says, “Dad?”

Trick comes in and chases the Oracles off. Bo finally tells him that her father is Hades. Trick says that’s not possible. Bo says her father took Aife to Tartarus. Bo saw where she was born – in Hell. She shows him the candle Persephone told her to bring out and light. She wonders if lighting the candle is what brought the ancients. Trick thinks it might be. Bo says it’s time for them to meet the other side of the family.

Cassie

The Moirai report to Zee. She grabs Cassie and touches her lips – takes the truth they’ve gathered that day. Zee’s eyes turn white and she says, “She doesn’t even know.” Then she tosses Cassie off the balcony. Ungrateful!

Vex and Mark play beer pong while Vex explains that Vex locked up Eros all those years ago and Evony’s been her evil self ever since. So, does that mean Evony is going be nice now that Eros is out of his box?

Vex won’t tell who he saw in his Oracle Vision when Mark asks.

Tamsin finds Bo at home. Bo says the words Tamsin dreads, “We need to talk.”

Tamsin is hurt

It’s a poignant scene with a truly vulnerable Tamsin revealing that she loves Bo. Very gently Bo tells Tamsin that – although she loves her – she doesn’t love her like that.

The lights come back on. Tamsin walks out and slams the door.

Bo blows out the Artemis candle and walks away. It flames up again after a few seconds.

Some Thoughts

I loved this episode because we learned so much about Bo and about the Ancients. Of course, there’s still some mystery that Bo has to unravel.

I think we learned that Lauren is the one who Bo wants to be with. It might be a little early to firmly state that Doccubus is going to be a thing. There’s always the possibility that it was the effect of Eros getting out of his prison that lead to them having sex after so many seasons without them getting horizontal together. Later, when the oracles were tricking her, she saw both Lauren and Dyson. Confusing, isn’t it?

We learned that Lauren is doing research on Fae/human switches for her own purposes and reasons. I’ve been thinking for some time that Lauren was going to make herself Fae so that she and Bo would have similar lifespans and could be together. With this show, making a prediction like this with 9 episodes left before the end is chancy.

I love the gender-bendy fact that Zeus is in a woman’s body and Hera is in a man’s.

Isn’t it crazy that Vex has the hots for Mark? The feelings are subliminal, but they are there. Vex is attracted to Dyson’s son. Oh, my.

  1. Loved this episode. Loved the acting. Interesting things happened to all the characters. I think Bo has finally been given a clue to not play with other people heart strings.

    2 problems with this eps ..

    How was Eros stored BEFORE cryogenics and mostly inportantly before ELECTRICITY.

    Why did that tornado not demolish the flimsiest building in the fea colony … Bo’s crackshack. It was untouched.

    1. Tristen, Eros was locked away using the technology known as “willing suspension of disbelief.” This show uses that brain freezing cryogenic technique a lot.

      My experience with tornados is that they can knock down one thing and leave something just yards away intact. But speaking of the crackshack, I keep thinking that Bo will become Queen of all the Fae and move into really luxurious digs similar to the Ash’s compound.
