Lost Girl – Scream A Little Dream (S2, E3)
The lair is dirty, Bo has enlisted Kenzi to help her clean it up. Bo wants to spring clean the home, before she can spring clean her heart from Dyson. The cleaning is not going so well for Kenzi, who loathes it. Good thing for her a client needs to be met, no more cleaning for now!
Local Faeman Frank is seeking to enlist the help of Bo. He works at the Crawford apartment building, where he tends the humans. Apparently, though everyone there has now lost their minds. Frank thinks that there is a Dark Fae preying on them, but the Ash will do nothing to help him. That is why he is meeting with Bo hoping she can help figure it out. Bo decides to call up Lauren to assist her in this medical mystery. While Kenzi is off to the Dal to drink away her cleaning issues. Venting this to Trick, he offers to let her work there for some extra cash. Kenzi is not keen on actually working for her money. Having overheard Kenzi’s need for cleaning, a local Brownie Fae comes over and offers his services! He offers to come live at their home and clean for free! This seems like a dream come true to Kenzi. She confers with Trick who informs her that Brownie’s are not harmful, they like to eat Honey and Cereal, you just have to make sure and not take them for granted. Since Trick gave his safe to take home approval, She takes him home!
At the apartment building Bo has Lauren with her checking out the residents. Though Lauren needs to run a lot of tests, she can’t tell what is wrong with them. Bo is eager to find out if with this new Ash Lachlan, if Lauren is now free of the Fae or just what is going on. Lauren still won’t tell Bo what is really going on, just that she will at some point. The only thing that Lauren will say is that like all things Fae it is complicated.
After a long day of searching vents and checking things out with Lauren she returns home exhausted. Quickly discovering the new housemate, a Brownie named Mumphert! He has been happily going around the house cleaning up and making tea! With Bo so tired Kenzi gets her to bed to rest. She is not asleep for long when she is awakened, startled she goes to check it out. Only to find Dyson in her shower, a welcomed surprise she joins him. Only in a sudden turn from the romantic embrace is a nightmare change, as he grabs her heart right out of her chest. Hearing Bo’s screams Kenzi comes running in to find a mystery woman in a black coat on top of Bo. This Dark woman seems to be feeding off of Bo’s nightmare about Dyson. Kenzi came just in time to stop the creature before it finished. Seems Bo has found what has been plaguing the tenants of the apartment.
Bo tells Kenzi to keep on top of the Brownie situation, while she goes to find out more information. Off to the Dal! Trick says he believes what is plaguing their dreams is a Mare. He is going to refer to his books to find out how to stop it and if they damage to the humans can be reversed. Meanwhile, Bo goes to see what information Lauren has been able to find out. Lauren sets Bo up in a head machine to see what is going on. Apparently, the Mere and Bo have a psychic link together now. Bo definalty needs to stay awake till she can get to the bottom of this. While at Lauren’s place trying to find a remedy Bo tries to get her to tell her more about why she is in service to the Ash. Just when it seems she might tell a little bit, in comes Lachlan. He has come to let Bo know that she can no longer speak or see Lauren without his permission. Bo with a knife in hand, tells the Ash that Lauren is no one’s property. Lauren tells Bo she need her to stay out of this, and she is escorted out.
Frustrated and tired Bo goes over to the Dal to see what Trick has found out. He says what she really needs is a shy Fae called a Baku, they eat bad dreams! A live Baku eats nightmares, but the pelt of a dead one wards of disease. So the poor things have been hunted almost to extinction. Trick says Lauren might have one on file. She then tells of the situation that has come up with the Ash. He tells her that he has ears all around, that Lauren is being treated well and with respect from what he is told. That Bo needs to play nice with Lachlan since not much is known about him. So Bo goes through the proper Ash channels to see if she can talk with Lauren. While she is waiting for him she falls asleep only to awaken from another nightmare and Lachlan before her. Bo goes so be-humbled to the Ash to ask to speak with Lauren, he says no of course, she is busy. He says perhaps if it was in the interest of the Light Fae he might let her have five minutes with Lauren. So Bo explains how she has taken on Franks problem since Lachlan would not help him with it. Bo continues on in a unprofessional manner when she finally stops herself; the Ash lets her know that no one named Frank, a doorman or otherwise has ever come to talk to him.
Back at the now spring freshly clean hovel of Kenzi and Bo something is a bit a miss. Mumphert the Brownie has earlier brought Kenzi some great hard to find clothing, she was so es-tactic about it. He only asked that she make sure to get some more Honey Berry Crunch since they were now out. Seems Kenzi has forgotten about this, though he has not. In dismay of Kenzi’s lack of gratitude, the spaghetti is horrid, and things around the house are now frazzled. Mumphert tells Kenzi she knows what she did to upset him, and he is not leaving either this is his home now.
With this information from Lachlan, Bo goes over to the apartment building to confront Frank. When she does he soon uses some sort of dust on her and off she goes to dreamland or in this case nightmare-land. She starts dreaming that everyone is at the Dal and they don’t want Bo to join since she ruins everything. A frustrated Bo stuck in a chair is then visited by the Mere, whom soon disappears. Bo’s nightmare world begins changing more and more into a dark dream of blackness. Suddenly she awakens to find herself tied to a chair, with Frank standing over her. He explains that he had no choice, things are beyond his control. Bo shows him beyond control and knocks him down, smashes her chair, and gets loose.
Back at the humble home, Kenzi has brought something for Mumphert. She calls out to him when he comes out, what she finds is surprising! He is dressed in her clothing, and wigs, what a sight he is. Kenzi explains that she is full of gratitude for him, she has a huge bag of Honey Berry Crunch Cereal for him. Everything now is fine, all forgotten he even offers to help her. Kenzi tells him if he can find it she needs to find a Baku pellet with the Baku still in it.
Meanwhile using her powers of persuasion she gets Frank to tell her just what is going on. He admits that he lied, he is Dark fae in Light fae territory. Though Frank thinks he is going to get away with it since the Light fae are still in such a disarray. He dragged Bo into this since Connie is so hungry, she needs a juicy Fae for the main course after finishing the humans off. Connie who is the Mare, couldn’t use Frank since he is a Sandman Fae who never sleeps, he is no good to her. So they targeted unaligned and unprotected Bo to go after.
Suddenly Bo feels so sleepy, the Sandman has got her again. Connie who is very much pregnant comes out and frees Frank. The apparent couple argue about the situation they are now in with Bo, and how she is eating for an extra six. Bo suddenly awakens again while the two are still bickering. The Sandman goes for her again, but she pulls a knife and gets away. Bo wanders down the hallway to an elevator with the Sandman after her. Once inside she pulls the knob so the elevator doesn’t move, and calls Kenzi. Bo is in such distress and not sure but sure she is at the Crawford building. Just in time Mumphert comes in with the Baku he has found. She tells Bo to stay put they are on their way to help her. Trying so hard to stay awake Bo looks at the buttons on the elevator realizing she knows right where Connie is hiding out. Bo goes down to the basement, and is thrust into a dream/nightmare world again without knowing it. She see’s herself old, crying and alone never having found love again. Her older self pleads for just one kiss, but she doesn’t want to. Soon the old her disappears only-to be replaced by Dyson who wants them to be together always. Just in time Kenzi and the Baku come along and find her. The Baku works his magic on Bo by hugging her. He eats the scary dreams, but he says something is holding her there, she can’t get out. Bo inside the dream stabs Dyson knowing now it is just a dream, she comes out of it. Bo greets the Baku and they all have a group hug. Bo tells him there is a building full of people with real bad dreams if he is still hungry. Off he eagerly goes to feed on the nightmares. Though Bo still feels there is a link between the Mare and her. Bo realizing about the Mare charges into the room in the basement. The Mare and Sandman are there together, the Mare’s water just broke she is going to give birth now.
With the situation now under control, Bo goes to see Ash Lachlan to inform him someone had to do his job for him. He offers her a job to freelance for him, no allegiance, and with a retainer. Bo politely refuses him and leaves.
Kenzi is upset that Mumphert the Brownie has decided to leave. He is going to live with the complete shut in, the Baku. He needs him more, Kenzi says her goodbyes to him. Then she tends to Bo who is in such need of sleep now!
