Tamsin: “What’s so great about Kenzi anyway?”
Bo: “She’s Kenzi. She’s smart and honest and kind, and she makes me feel normal and special, all at the same time.”

There are numerous great things about this episode. First off, the writers really showcase Bo and Kenzi’s relationship. Even though they spend most of the episode apart, their friendship is front and center. It’s great to hear Bo fight for Kenzi when everyone else thinks she is insane, and Kenzi talking about Bo to Evil!Kenzi is fantastic. The writers also use this episode to give some answers regarding Tamsin. A little bit more is divulged about what exactly she can do as a valkerie. There’s still more to uncover, but the writers give enough answers through Trick and Tamsin herself to hold viewers over for awhile. Not only that, but the writers reveal more of who Tamsin is as a person, and what she wants. Tamsin is slowly starting to fall in love with the happy sunshine gang, as the Morrigan calls them. What did you love most about this episode?
Evil!Kenzi, also known as Inari, is still a bit of a mystery. Yes, the writers explain how all she wants is friends and it is clear she is a little mentally unstable, but it’s hard to understand what exactly she is, and more specifically, what her fae powers are. Here’s what we know. Inari gave up her glamour power to the Norn (it was in the jar Kenzi got on herself) which apparently allows her to feed, she likes to collect shiny things and thinks earrings are food, she has weird teeth, and she can somehow turn into Kenzi. The writers give a lot of hints, but they never connect the dots. They should have expanded more, either through Tamsin or through Inari herself when she is in the cave with Kenzi. Plus, does Kenzi have any of Inari’s powers? She should, right?
Bo has been struggling since the beginning of this season, and somehow it is because of the dawning, which Trick explains is a rite of passage. It’s hard to understand what exactly is happening to Bo, aside from Lauren’s scientific answer of cells are dying and being replaced. Bo has been hungry a lot recently, and she has killed some of her feeds, but doesn’t remember it. Somehow that leads to the dawning. The writers do explain the sense of smell thing, which is apparently a sign that Bo is turning into a underfae. Right now this storyline has the potential for being exciting, what with Bo having to be tested and all, but there are still a lot of questions. It’s like with Inari, the writers give you clues but aren’t connecting them. Also, what happens when Bo passes the test, will she gain some new found succubus powers? What is your take on this whole dawning business?
Leave me your thoughts in a comment below. Out of Lauren, Dyson, and Trick, who do you think really should have believed Bo and/or noticed Kenzi was not alright? In other words, which betrayal hurt the most? Also, where was Hale? Make sure you hit subscribe!
