"Lost Girl" is better than ever (and has already been renewed for a fourth season), and on Thursday, March 7, we joined a conference call with series stars Anna Silk, Ksenia Solo, and Kris Holden-Ried as they teased what's to come in the rest of season 3.
The love triangle. While both Silk and Holden-Ried said that there will be progression for Dyson and Bo moving forward on "Lost Girl," Silk added it's "not quite as linear as you would think." As for the two people in Bo's life, Holden-Ried sees Lauren and Dyson as bound together because "in the end, they both love Bo." He respects her, and she's learning to respect him in turn.
Kenzi and Bo's friendship. Kenzi has had a rough time lately, and Bo has tough times coming with the trials she's going to be facing, but whatever happens, "it's impossible to tear them apart because of the bond they have and the love they have for each other," Solo shared. "Every relationship goes through its ups and downs and I think they've been on the up swing for a while so I think it was time this season to give them a little, some hardships to go through. So I think once they get over these bumps in the road, they'll be able to move on to the next chapter in their relationship." Silk agreed, adding, "Friendships really have to evolve, they have to be challenged, so I think it's good for Bo and Kenzi to shake things up a little bit in terms of their friendship and see where it goes from where we leave off."
Challenges and decisions ahead. Speaking of the trials coming Bo's way, Silk and Holden-Ried both teased an upcoming scene in episode 9 that the actress said "required a lot of emotional presence" in a dream world. Also facing some challenging situations is going to be Kenzi, who, while she's back and alive, is going to now be more aware of the fact that she is just human in this fae world. "Now more than ever she feels weaker than all her friends," Solo admitted. "Obviously everything affects us whether we know it or not, consciously or subconsciously, so I feel like [her recent experience] is going to affect the decisions she makes in the upcoming episodes." And Kenzi will have "some really big decisions" to make going forward.
The Dawning. Right now, Bo is facing this Rite of Passage every Fae has to go through, and it's not going to be easy. It's a storyline that Silk has enjoyed, and she told reporters, "There's definitely elements of dark and there are more elements of dark to come. …It's coming from a scary place for Bo. It's not just about her becoming evil and bad, it's the fact that that potential for her to devolve…is really scary and she has to really rise to the challenge and her team has to rise to the challenge as well or participate in it in some way."
Tamsin's "truncated" storyline. Holden-Ried explained that Tamsin's (Rachel Skarsten) storyline was originally planned out for a longer season, but when they shortened it to a 13-episode season, "they short had to truncate" it. He teased that she "has her own agenda" and does play a very important role in what's coming.
The missing (and missed) Hale. Hale hasn't been around much, and that's because K.C. Collins is also filming another show. "As far as his involvement goes," Holden-Ried said, "he's there with us all the way to the end."
And it's all leading up to an exciting season finale… While they couldn’t say much of anything about the last episode of season 3, Silk did tease, "The tension definitely builds" to "a very heart-pumping season finale," adding, "Some things come together and some things really get ripped apart." And when asked about the separate journeys Bo, Kenzi, and Dyson have gone on this season, she explained that each character brings something with them to the group after their individual experiences and Holden-Ried previewed, "The group and the group dynamic is pretty pivotal to the last few episodes and how we end season 3 and start season 4."
Speaking of season 4... While the actors couldn't reveal anything about what's coming up, Solo did say she would like to see more "outside the box" episodes, like the one where they switched bodies, "things that really challenge [them] as actors and challenge [their] characters." Meanwhile, Silk said, "I feel like we're evolving exactly as we should, which means that we're constantly challenging and changing and moving forward, so I hope for more of that." Finally, Holden-Ried did tease that there have been talks about looking into Dyson and Trick's past and it could happen in season 4, "hopefully with flashbacks or really getting into the history of it."
"Lost Girl" season 3 airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on Syfy. What are you hoping to see this season and next?
