Bo is dark, and she is not happy about it. The writers have done a decent job of showing that Bo and Kenzi dislike both the light and the dark. They all around hate the idea of having to pick a side. It is great to spend more of an episode with the dark fae. Surprisingly, the Morrigan does not come off too horrible in this episode. She actually is useful and acts somewhat as a friend to Bo. It’s definitely a new side of the Morrigan to see. Somehow Bo pledged to be dark, and her sponsor is someone by the name of Rayner. Does that name sound familiar to anyone else? The Una Mens are familiar with whoever he is because they are not happy. Perhaps it is an alias of The Wanderer? What are your theories?

Fae history lesson time! There is a surprising amount of backstory given in this episode, and it is absolutely fantastic. We learn about the Blood King’s ties to the Una Mens, and how they began. In addition, we also get so really sad Vex backstory. Since the fae live much, much, much longer than humans, they typically have amazing tales to tell, but the writers don’t always get a chance to share it. This episode did a great job especially with Trick and the Una Mens because it gave the viewers a surprising twist, and it also answered some questions about how the Una Mens came to be. Did you enjoy the history lesson?

Here are quick thoughts on elsewhere in the episode. Kenzi is reunited with Bruce! He is not in a good place, and so Kenzi comes up with the idea to have Tamsin master Bruce (apparently it’s a dark fae thing). This storyline is just fun, and it is needed to balance out the serious episode. Nothing too exciting happens, but watching Tamsin and Kenzi dance is pretty amazing. The plus side to being dark? Bo is reunited with Lauren! It is a little annoying how long it takes Bo to realize that Lauren is working for the dark. What is great about this is Lauren’s reasoning to Bo about why it’s not so bad that she is working for the Morrigan. Lauren is being treated better with the dark than she was with the light. This episode did a good job of showing various facets of the dark fae. What are your thoughts on Lauren working for the dark?
