Lost Girl – Episode 9 – Fae Day
Kenzi gets Bo to finally get out of the house, where she has been hiding from the Fae and all their shit as she puts it. So they go to the Dal where Trick is eager to have Bo see La Shoshain a Fae holy day. A day of celebrations where the dark and light fae can intermingle freely with consequences, and fae are not permitted to use their powers or feed. While all are enjoying the festivities, a Banshee suddenly wails foretelling the death of someone there in the bar. Trick clears out the bar, the Banshee only wails for someone belonging to one of the five noble families. Anyone there belonging to one of those must stay in the bar till they can figure out who it is that is going to die. Trick has called in Dyson to help, whom also asks Bo to help him, since she is unaligned she can help since she is the only one that can use her powers. Dyson asks nicely and Bo goes with him to find the banshee that has run off, so they can find out whom it is that is going to die. A grumpy Trick is snappy with Kenzi, so Dyson goes to check on him. In the back room he sees baggage from someone, Trick tells him that it was Lou Ann’s. That he intervened in her death since she was the midwife at Bo’s birth, that they owed her at least that much. Dyson and Bo track down the Banshee at her place of employment and proceed to retrieve the information from her. Not a pleasant or clean experience, but effective. The banshee girl says she cries for the lose of Shawn of the Cabina family, he will not live past sundown.
Back at the Dal Kenzi meets a Faeman that attracts wealth, the two of them are enjoying placing bets and playing games. When in comes Bo and Dyson to inform them of who it is the Banshee wailed for. An guess who, it is Kenzi’s new Fae friend Shawn. Shawn has decided (with help from Kenzi) that he wants to make peace with his dark Fae brother Liam before he dies. Liam feeds on human greed, so Bo agrees to help him find his brother. Dyson goes along with Bo and they find his brother, who is arrogant and not willing to go and see Shawn. Bo explains a banshee wailed for him and he doesn’t seem to care in the least due to their history. Since his brother wont come, Bo goes back to find out what really happened between the two brothers. Shawn tells how Liam was a wild one, but their father gave them the responsibility of keeping the books at the family business. One day $30,000 goes missing so Shawn wanted Liam to face the music so he called the cops. Instead it back fired and his brother left the family and went to the dark fae. So Bo agrees after a near miss with a chandler that she is going to get his brother to come so they can reconcile. While Kenzi gets Shawn to do some bucket list things before he dies. While out doing this, Shawn goes to say goodbye to his father. He lets him know a banshee wail for him, his father wants him to get his estate in order, and that is all he is concerned about. Shawn though just wants to have some fun before he goes.
Meanwhile, Bo talks to Liam using her powers, which he then reviels that he put a hit out on Shawn. Which he was now free to do since his mother was now dead. Kenzi and Shawn back at Bo’s place are attacked by a goblin hit man. Bo and Dyson come in and join the fight, just in time Dyson ends up shooting the goblin saving them all. Shawn can’t believe that his brother has sent this goblin after him. Dyson says that more goblins will be coming once they take a job they don’t give up. They need to contact the Ash and Morrigan due to the unsanctioned hit on Lo Shoshain. While they discuss this Shawn slips out and goes after Liam, Bo gets there with the others, when she then in acts Agallamh. Doing this forces the two brothers to attempt to reconcile their differences. If there are not successful in the allotted amount of time, or it does not go according to the rules the one that invokes and provides over it, in this case Bo, will be put to death. Dyson agrees to be the one to do this if it comes to it. Also Dyson is concerned for Bo, he asks Trick if he will use his blood to save her if it is necessary, he hopes it won’t come to that.
The peace talks begin and so far things are not going well between the brothers. When Kenzi gets an idea about what was really going on, so Bo stalls to give her time to find what she needs to help out. Just in time Kenzi gets back with Shawn and Liams father. He admits that he their father was the one all those years ago who stole that money, that it was for his gambling. He never admitted it saying his wife would have left him, and the family name ruined. This news allows the brothers to make peace. With this reconcile they move for peace and the brothers are at peace once more. Bo is successful is her Agallamh. They walk Liam out of the Dal and are about to part on peaceful terms when a man runs up in the ally and shoots. He is aiming for Liam but Shawn moves to protect his brother, taking the bullet and dying for him. He says before he dies that they are now even.
Afterwords, an upset Kenzi is comforted at their home by Bo. While back at the Dal, Trick and Dyson have an interesting conversation. Trick asks Dyson if Bo had failed if he would have been able to kill her? While Dyson asks Trick if he would have used his blood to save her? Dyson praises Bo about how strong she is and that she deserves to know more, Trick says though that he is not ready to tell just yet. Dyson raises his glass to the Blood King and all he has sacrificed, Tricks smiles and says don’t ever call me that.
So from this episode we learned a few important things. First, we know that Trick and Dyson know about Bo’s mother. Apparently her name is Eve, if and when she returns there will be a reckoning. Dyson wants Trick to tell Bo about her mother, he seems to of course know a lot more then he is telling. Though Trick does not want to tell yet, cause he is not ready. So from that I would say he is personally connected to this in some way. We also know that the Blood King is a legendary figure for the Fae, he forced peace between warring tribes of Fae. Thus creating the Dark and Light Fae, along with all the rules of the now Fae society. The day he did this is now known as Lo Shoshain. A lot of new information going on in this episode, and I am sure there is more to come soon. So what do you think about Trick being the Blood King? An what about the information he holds about Bo’s mother, do you think he will tell her soon?
