Look guys, there is a case of the week! It seems like forever since there was a weird fae case. This time, however, Kenzi teams up with Dyson and Lauren. It is sad that we don’t get to see Bo and Kenzi’s reunion (again) and also what Kenzi’s initial reaction was to her and Rainer being an item. What is great is the end, seeing how Kenzi is dealing with Bo shutting her out. Yes, there are Dyson and Lauren moments dealing with this, but it is great that the writers focused a little bit more of Kenzi because Bo and Kenzi are family. The case is entertaining. Between the new team dynamic and Kenzi’s love of mermaids, it is very enjoyable. What did you think of Dyson, Lauren, and Kenzi as a team? Also, does anyone else wish we could actually see Dyson training Kenzi as a shadow thief, and also maybe learning what that even means?

This episode fills in the gaps as to what happened when Bo first arrived on the train. It isn’t too hard to start to like Rainer during this scenes. He is just as trapped, angry, and confused as Bo is, and there is a little bit of a charm with him. What is still confusing is Bo and Rainer as a couple. Bo touches a butterfly and remembers something from her past about (assumedly) that same butterfly. This causes Rainer to believe that it is “her,” and then they touch, and all of a sudden Bo is referring to her and Rainer as “us.” I feel like we are missing some steps here. Is there some magical fae lore that discusses that you know you love someone based on one touch? There is not a logical jump from sort of tolerating each other to romance. Hopefully the writers will explain more, after all Bo still has to talk to her friends about all of this. What is great is that the writers explain how these train flashbacks led to the season opener with Bo on the train. Are you buying the romance?

Here are some other Bo and Rainer thoughts. There are a whole lot of flashbacks during this episode. We have the train scenes, and by the end of the episode, we learn that the entire Una Mens fight was a flashback. It is hard to follow the Bo and Rainer storyline in the present. Rainer has some power of foresight in battle, and somehow throwing his Wanderer card at the head Una Mens lady, and her throwing it back into him, restored Rainer’s powers. Okay because that makes sense. Any who, for some reason, Bo and Rainer decide to destroy the Una Mens, which is not a terrible idea. They haven’t been the nicest of people. It is still hard to decide whether or not Rainer’s motives are true. Personally, I still don’t trust him. Also, all this pain and killing all of Bo’s loved ones does not sound nice. What did you think of Bo and Rainer’s adventures in this episode?
