In This Episode...

It is time for Hale’s inauguration. The shit hits the fan and everything is a blur. Ready?

A bartender doses Dyson’s drink. Paramedics come for him, but it turns out they are humans and abscond with Dyson before Bo can stop them. The bartender chooses a dose of poison for himself rather than spilling his secrets. The vials of poison came from Lauren, so Bo starts her search at Lauren’s house. She finds Tamsin crashing there, and fall-down drunk. She agrees to pull herself together to help Bo. While Tamsin is picking the lock on a car boot, Bo finds photos of herself and a vial in Tamsin’s truck. She sends a picture to Kenzi. A douchey fae named Massimo tells Kenzi he can tell her what that stuff is, but the cost is a kiss. Kenzi agrees, and Massimo tells her someone is trying to capture Bo in that bottle to make her into a slave. 

Bo and Tamsin easily find a massive compound where Dyson has been taken. The girls don’t make it inside. A guard shoots; Tamsin takes the bullet for Bo. While Bo tries to patch up Tamsin, her phone rings. It is Massimo telling “blondie” that he obtained the best friend’s kiss and the potion is ready to go. Inside the compound, Dyson is put in a cage and a big, beefy man is brought to the cage. The two men fight to the death. Dyson wins.

Lauren is finding success at Isaac’s lab, but she starts to get suspicious when Isaac hints at wanting to find a way to turn bad people good. She sneaks into a secure room using a stolen key card and is shocked to find a bloody Dyson in one of the glass cages. Isaac appears and admits that he is trying to figure out a way to harness the fae lifestyle for his own gain. He then locks Lauren into a glass cage next to Dyson.

Hale has invited the Morrigan to his inauguration in the hopes that they can forge an alliance. The Morrigan blames Hale for letting his humans run amok and calls in the dark to vote against Hale’s leadership. The vote passes, and somehow this means the Morrigan can declare all humans enemies of the state. Kenzi is still at the Dahl, so Hale has no choice but to arrest Kenzi. In doing so, he kisses her and slips a trinket into her pocket.

Also: Hale admits he has feelings for Kenzi, and Trick is kidnapped.

Dig It or Bury It?

Um, what the fuck happened here? I get it; it’s a two-parter. But there was so much going on and everyone was so angry it made my head spin a bit. Hale is going Ash-zilla; he finally admits his love for Kenzi; Morrigan is suddenly able to lead a takeover of the light; Lauren got herself mixed up in some sort of nasty anti-fae nonsense; and I don’t know what is going on with Tamsin. It was like so much happened tonight, yet nothing happened. Is it just because there was so much crap jammed in here?


Things come to a head when the Morrigan ignites the flames of war between the light and the dark.
