Okay, so I’ll try to keep the spoilerage to a minimum – but be warned. I just may get carried away and I’m still processing the hugeness of recent developments, as well as dealing with that lost hour of sleep from Saturday night.
The Showcase synopsis forewarned of pre-war casualties in last night’s episode of Lost Girl “Truth and Consequences.” And, boy, there were casualties. Relationships. Innocence. Death. To quote some lyrics from one of my favourite Sarah McLachlan tunes: “Hold on. Hold on to yourself. This is gonna hurt like hell.”
Kenzi had to make a hard choice about her relationship with Nate. Bo had to choose how far she was willing to go in these early days of battle with the Garuda. And Nadia’s disturbing ailment – confirmed as part possession/part Fae Congo virus – forced Lauren and Bo, and even Nadia herself, into a deadly decision. Meanwhile, Hale steps up and shows leadership in organizing a sit-down between Lachlan and Trick, and Dyson is AWOL. This episode was as heartbreaking as it was gripping – and left the audience feeling that this is only the beginning of the sacrifices to come.
Big props to Lost Girls Anna Silk, Ksenia Solo and Zoie Palmer for their outstanding performances. Thank you for that, ladies.
Three more episodes of season 2 to go, including a special finale pre-show event before the final s2 episode on Sun, April 1.
