Bo: “Oh, and know this: if you go near my girlfriend, the little balls hanging on our Christmas tree next year will have a certain panache.”
Vex: “Hook up illegal cable and what do I get? Threats against my junk. Typical.”

One of Kenzi’s friends, Aussie, is taken right in front of her eyes while attending a sort of magic show. This case is full of misdirects, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, the writers could have improved a couple of things. First off, the actual bad guy, Robert, shows up early on in the episode, but it is hard to figure out just exactly who he is. It’s clear that he is fae because he is talking to Dyson and Tamsin about fae things, but his position is a bit fuzzy. The writers should have clarified that a bit. It would not have taken away from the twist that he is the bad guy. All it would have done is made the viewers less confused. Also, it would have been nice to see some more detective work from Dyson and Tamsin. They really don’t add much to the case aside from locking Bo up in interrogation. Did any parts of the case confuse or bother you?
There are a lot of great things about the case. For one, the viewers and Bo get to learn a little bit more about Kenzi. In the first episode, she reveals that she lives on the streets, but in this episode viewers find out more about where she went when she first ran away from home. It’s a small moment, but it is still nice that the writers are sharing more of Kenzi’s back story. Vex also helps out, for a moment. Anytime he is dragged along someplace, it is actually entertaining. What did you enjoy most about the case?
Ladies and gentlemen, Dyson has a new partner! Her name is Tamsin, and she’s dark fae. Well isn’t that a nifty little complication. During this episode there really isn’t any moment where Tamsin and Dyson struggle with them being on opposite sides of the fae spectrum. Mostly it is all about Bo – who would’ve thought? Let’s just focus on Tamsin, shall we? She and Dyson have great banter with a bit of an edge to it. Friendly isn’t exactly the right word for it, but hate may be too strong. She is interesting, that is for sure. The writers need to focus more on revealing who she is, and dial back on her crusade against Bo. Clearly it is an important part of her arc, but the viewers need to be able to have more of a sense of who Tamsin is. What is your first impression of Tamsin?
