"Faetal Justice" 
Season 1; Episode 11
Dyson wakes up outside of a club with a recently deceased Dark Fae redcap named Ba'al beside him and blood all over his body. He obtains sanctuary from Trick, and discovers that he has no memories of what happened to him, and asks for help from Bo to find out why. In the meantime, The Morrigan blames Dyson for the death of Ba'al, an associate of her favorite Vex and looks for revenge on Dyson for this. Both The Morrigan and The Ash attempt to convince Dyson to give himself up but without success. Bo in the meantime searches at a Dark Fae owned club which Vex runs trying to solve the mystery. She discovers that there is more to the place than is on the surface and discovers the truth of what happened.

My Take


     We find ourselves watching as Dyson gets into the face of juice head at hopping goth bar, complete with a hula hoop hanging woman. The nosed pierced juicer is telling Dyson off, he goes on to tell him that he shouldn't be there and that he's asking the wrong questions.  Dyson's inner wolf shows itself and he's ready to rumble.  Just as things are getting interesting, in walks Vex, yes that Vex.  He is his usual arrogant self and tells Dyson how bad it would look for a light enforcer to be on dark turf and be accused of a crime.  He tells him that he can make him do bad things and no one would be able to stop him.  Dyson reminds him that he can't control an animal and that he would have him by the throat before he would know what is happening.  Vex tells him that he wouldn't do that in a room full of humans, Dysons tells him not to be too sure about that.  Vex tells him that he should leave, after an intense stare down, Dyson thanks him for the drink and leaves the bar.  Vex and the juice head watch Dyson leave and Vex yells at the crowd asking who wants a drink, juice head says it's time to have some fun.
           Kenzi and Bo are the throes of a cooking storm adding spices to a pot and drinking wine.  Bo tells Kenzi that she didn't know she knew how to cook.  Kenzi tells her she ran a con as a cook for high society. Bo goes on to tell Kenzi that she wonders what deep dark secrets Dyson has.  Kenzi tells her she would kill to read  his diary, Bo laughs and tells her that with Dyson she just might have to.  The girls taste their concoction only to spit it out and use their wine as mouthwash to rid themselves of the foul taste.
       All of sudden we find ourselves outside of the club, called Carpe Noctem and the juice head is exiting the club and heading towards the corner.  As he walks toward the corner we hear a deep growl and see a white wolf across the street.  Juice head hears it and draws his knifes and prepares to find in the alley behind the club. In a matter of seconds the wolf pounces on him before he has a chance to strike.  A lovely arc of blood on the alley walls are all we are able to see.
   The next scene is very interesting, Dyson is shirtless and lying on trash bags in the alley.  His mouth and torso are covered with blood and the dead body of the juice head lays at this feet.  He wakes up and disorientated and flees the scene.
     Over at the Dal, Bo and Kenzi are hitting Trick up for some 411 on Dyson. He's telling them that Dyson lived in Spain, then Bo wants to know where else he lived.  Trick tells her that he lived in Reykjavík, Iceland for about fifty years or so.  Bo wants to know if he was a cop, too.  Trick tells her no, not always. Then he wants to know why she is asking so many questions.  Kenzi tells him that Bo wants to know all Dyson's deep dark secrets.  Bo tells them that she can't be blamed for wanting to know more about the guy she is in a relationship with.  Trick tells her that curiosity killed the cat is not just an empty saying.  Trick looks up and  Bo and Kenzi follow his gaze to find a bloody Dyson standing in the bar.  Both, Kenzi and Bo run to Dyson to check his wounds.  Dyson yells, "Sanctuary, I ask for Sanctuary" and Trick yells to clear the bar because Sanctuary has been evoked.  Bo wants to know what trouble he's in and where he's hurt, but Dyson tells her it's not his blood.  He tells her that the blood belongs to Ba'al, a psycho dark fae.  After one of Kenzi's witty remarks, Dyson tells them that Ba'al is dead.  Just then Dyson's cell phone rings, he takes it out of his pocket and answers it.  It's Hale and he wants to know where Dyson is at.  Dyson tells him that he's at the Dal.  Hale tells him that it's one hell of a time to get his drink on.  He tells Dyson that there are a lot of people looking for him because there are witnesses that mark him as Ba'al killer, they saw when Dyson was threatening him.   Dyson tells him that he's innocent and that someone set him up. Hale wants to know how Dyson got to the club, but he can't remember anything after work.  Hale tells him that the Ash wants him to come in for questioning.   Dyson goes on to tell Hale to stall for him. Everyone at the Dal want to know what's going on and Dyson tells then that the Ash wants him to turn himself in.  Trick tells him that he can't do that, that they would turn him over to the dark fae.   Bo wants to know what happen to due process, and Trick tells him that's how the fae work.  Bo wants for him to tell her everything he knows, he tells her that he doesn't want her anywhere near the problem.  Kenzi tell him that he has saved their lives on more than one occasion and that he needs to let them help him. Trick tells him that Bo is thier best bet in finding information. He tells them that  Ba'al  worked for Vex.  Bo can't believe he didn't tell her that Vex was back in town. She wants Hales help, but Dyson is still adamant about her not getting involved. He's afraid that Vex will hurt her again.  Bo promises not to do anything stupid, and Kenzi tells him that she will make sure.  Dyson is doubtful and Bo tells him that he's making it really hard to help him.  Dyson admits it, and says thanks.  Bo turns to Trick and asks for the Siricorn he had lent her before, he tells her that the Ash took it away. Bo gets ready to leave and Dyson stops her.  She tells him that she's going to be alright and Dyson tells her that she better be. (The looks he gives Bo is just peachy.)
   Bo and Kenzi pay Hale a visit.  They want to know everything he has on the case.  He tells them that the last thing Dyson needs is someone making things worse.  He gives Bo the details of the witnesses at the club that night. He tells her that he will be watched carefully, but he will help Dyson in any way he can. He tells her to tell Dyson that he has his back.
     The girls head over to the club and start to look for the witnesses.  Bo is working the room as she walks into the club.  They order a drink and begin to speak to the bartender.  He tells them that the cop killed Ba'al and Bo wants to know why he thinks that way.  He tells them that he saw Dyson threatening Ba'al that he'd kill him.  Out of the crowd Vex appears and begins to tease Bo about how she came out to go clubbing.  He calls her the unaligned love machine.  Bo tells him that he makes her sick, he can't believe she holds a grudge.  Kenzi makes another brilliant remark and Vex tells her that next time he'll make Bo kill Kenzi and not herself.  Since the word kill comes up, Vex tells Bo about how Dyson killed his close friend. Kenzi tells him that she heard that Ba'al was a pyscho.  Bo wants to know what a girl named Portia saw that night.  Vex tells her that the girl saw the same thing everyone else did.  Vex tells Bo that he would like to see her at his club, and that she could have as many as she wanted to feast on and no one would know.  Bo tells him that he creeps her out and leaves to find the goth girl with Kenzi.  She then leaves Kenzi to search out the girl on her own.
  Back at the Dal, Bo gives Dyson clean clothes.  She wants to know what his tat means.  He tells her that they are souvenirs of battles he has been in and lords he's had fealty to. She wants to know what language it is, he tells her it's in lycanthrope, wolf shifters, both  light and dark used it for thousand of years. She tells him that it's a lot of ink and he must of killed many. Dyson asks Bo if she thinks he killed Ba'al, too. She tells him that she knows it wasn't him.  Bo tells him what everyone said and how Vex saw things go down.   He goes on to tell her why he hated Ba'al so much.  He explains redcaps and how there are the street gangs of the fae world.  Ba'al stuck Dyson with a blade and left him to bleed to death.  He tells her that he wanted to kill him, but he didn't do it.  Bo tells him that she is going to bring justice to fae town.
   In walks in the Morrigan, she wants to take Dyson for the murder of one of her own.  They all begin to fight, but Trick pulls out a gun with silver bullets and stops them from taking Dyson.
   Dyson is worried that they are getting involved and are going to get hurt because they are standing by his side.  Bo tells him that she will help him, and Dyson calms down after a kiss. (Yummy) He tells her that if she walks into the club tht she is walking into Vex's hands.  She tells him that she thinks Vex may be sweet on her and that she'll be alright.  As she walks away and Dyson can't take his eyes off her, Bo stops to ask Trick how long until the fractions come to a decision, he tells her.  Then he tells her that to be careful with Vex getting into her head and that she can do the something.  Bo tells him that she knows and leaves.  (Dyson watches her leave with longing.) Trick walks over to Dyson and Dyson wants to know what he knows about keryns, they can read minds, retrieve memories, and are very dangerous.  Dyson wants to remember what happened the night before.  Trick tells him that he will try to find one.
     Back at the club, Kenzi is getting chummy with it's patrons trying to find Portia.  She finds herself the center of some goth boy's attention.  He is pouring it on, and Kenzi does not take him seriously.  She asks if he knows Portia and he tells her where she is and points her out.
     Bo is back at the station and is speaking to Hale, he giving her the facts he's been able to find. Vex is the main suspect as far as Bo is concerned.  Lauren comes into the office and give Hales the results on the teeth marks. She tells them that Dyson will have to come in to give an impression of his teeth, just to make sure it's not him. Bo tells her that is not going to happen.  Hale tells Bo that she is the real thing and good for Dyson.
    Right back at the club Kenzi has mad her way to the bar and Portia.  She is trying to make small talk with the girl.  The girl tells Kenzi that everyone at the club are jerks and the only one that is nice is Syles.  She goes on to tell her that she thinks the cop is a wolf.  She saw the wolf killing Ba'al, Kenzi tells her that the drugs they sell must be kicking.
   At the Dal, the Ash pays Trick a visit and wants Dyson to turn himself in.  Trick tells him that it won't happen.    The Ash tells Trick not to go against him and not make it a problem.  He is not at all happy with the Ash, and tells make sure of his grasp on power before he attacks others.  The Ash tells him that was the wrong answer and walks out.
   Kenzi meets Bo out in front of the club.  They are still asking Portia questions about the night before, Portia retells the story and keeps her story the same, Dyson is the killer.  Bo pulls Kenzi to the side and have a private conversation.  Bo thinks the girl is lying.  Bo steps back and thanks Portia before going back into the club.   Kenzi asks her if she has someplace to crash and invites her to stay the night, Portia agrees and leaves with her.
  Inside the club Kenzi questions Syles, the bartender, and he keeps to the story.  As Bo is leaving she is accosted by Vex's power, he is making her do things she doesn't want to do, like feel herself up. After Bo struggles for a while, Vex finally sets her loose and walks away, Bo is steaming mad. (I bet she can't wait to kill him.)
   At the Dal, Trick has found the memory reader, but he warns Dyson that is very painful.   Dyson doesn't care and is ready regardless.  Dyson screams from the pain, and the Kerin can't find a thing.  Dyson's memory has been wiped clean.  Dyson wants to know if it's like a fae roofie, the keryn tells him that is exactly what he thinks.
   Over at the house Kenzi is talking to Portia, it seems to be a mini bout of therapy over a glass of wine.  Portia is telling her she has survived and how Syles treats her well and is nice to her.  Kenzi notices a bracelet that Portia is wearing she tells him that Syles gave it to her, it has fae writing on it.  Kenzi once again asks her side if the story and when she tells her the same thing, Kenzi tells her that Bo can protect her, but Portia keeps to her story. She takes off her jacket and Kenzi sees lash marks all over her back, Portia has no idea how they got there.
   Bo returns to the Dal and asks Dyson if he was able to remembered anything.  He tells her that his mind had been wiped and he still couldn't remeber.  Bo wants to know if he remember anything about that day.  He tells her that he received a call at the station. Bo calls Hale so he can run the number that called Dyson.  He then tells her that the number belongs to one, Lyle Harrison, an art dealer. Dyson has never heard of the man.  Dyson is getting cabin fever and it's driving him crazy that he can leave the bar and find out the truth.
     In the mean time, Kenzie goes to find alcohol for the lashes on Portia's back only to find her gone.
     Bo pays Lyle Harrison  a visit and uses her sucubus powers to get the truth out of him. He begins to tell her about  a sex ring where girls are treated badly.  Lyle tells Bo that  Ba’al killed the girl with glowing eyes and how Ba'al ran Vex’s sex ring.  The girls forget what happens to them with the help of a drug. Bo calls Hale and he tells that there was a missing girl with glowing eyes that has been missing.
      At the bar, Trick is handing out insults over the phone to all those who wont vote in Dyson's corner.  Dyson doesn't want Trick to protect him and tells that he is going to take care of things on his own. Dyson leaves the bar as Trick tries calling him back.
   When Bo gets home, Kenzie tells her about the lashes on Portia's back.  Bo tells her that there are more like her.   Bo thinks she knows where to find her.
   At the club, Dyson is checking out the basement, when she sees a man at the bottom of the stairs and attacks him, but he is ambushed by the Morrigan's men and Vex.
Bo and Kenzie enter the club and are prepared for a fight, especially Kenzi with her brass knuckles.  In the depths of the basement Dyson is stung up and is being questioned by the Morrigan. When she wants know more about Bo and he doesn't answer, Vex burns him with a burning poker.   Dyson screams from the torture, but doesn't tell her anything.
    Bo and Kenzi find Portia on the way to the basement. She tells that she is fine and that Syles will help her keep safe. Bo recognizes the bracelet that Porsche is wearing and asks her where she got it.  She tells that Silas gave it to her, Bo recognizes that it is the Lycanthrope language, that of a shifter.  They have found their killer.
   Bo walks in as they are torturing Dyson she does this buy placing a poker at the Morrigan's throat.  She makes them take him down and tells them it was Syles that killed Ba'al and told them all the details.  Syles tries to leave, but Vex stops him. Bo tells then that she already called Hale and told him everything.   Bo and her gang leave the basement.
     Later on at the Dal, The Ash apologizes that he didn't believe in him, and that the disagreement has been forgotten. Dyson thanks Trick and Trick tells him that he is his friend and not to do it again.
     Back at the house, Kenzie says goodbye to Portia and she tells Kenzi that she got a job at a pizza place.  Portia wants to know if she can call Kenzie sometime. Kenzi tells her that she can call her anytime.
    Dyson thanks Bo in a real cozy manner, he wants her to know how much he appreciates her helping.  She tells him that she always knew he was innocent and knows him, he tells her that he knows her too.  She is and Dyson share a steamy kiss. (Too short in my opinion)


   
Note: I get the feeling that the dark and light are going to meet in larger numbers and it won't be for tea.  I really don't like the Ash.

Haven’t read the series yet? What are you waiting for?! Here are the books, in order:


First Grave on the Right {#1}

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper
Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.
This is a thrilling debut novel from an exciting newcomer to the world of paranormal romantic suspense.


For I Have Sinned {#1.5}

Darynda Jones revisits the sexy, suspenseful world of supernatural shenanigans she created in her Grave series with For I Have Sinned. In this Charley Davidson story, Charley helps a woman find out how she died and gives her the closure she needs to pass through to the other side.

Second Grave on the Left {#2}

When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.
Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?
Third Grave Dead Ahead {#3}



Third Grave Dead Ahead {#3}

Charley Davidson—grim reaper extraordinaire, private investigator . . . meh—is practicing her profession under the influence, caffeine and copious amounts of it, due to an extreme desire to induce insomnia. Every time she closes her eyes, Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan, is there. Only thing is, he’s a tad peeved. She did bind him for all eternity, so it’s hard blame him. But 13 days without a wink is bound to bring out the crazy in a girl. So, when a man hires her to find his wife, Charley accepts the job with one goal in mind: Put the man behind bars, and not the wet kind. She can sense the guilt waft off him and vows to find the woman’s body and prove he’s a murderer.
In the meantime, Reyes is back in prison and none too happy about it . . . so Charley thinks, until she is carjacked by the dark-haired rake, who swears the very man he went to prison for killing is not only alive, but close by. And he wants Charley to find him.
While a visit to her old friend Rocket sheds no light on Reyes’s situation, Charley finds out the man’s wife is still alive and time is running out. Finding her before she dies would be a miracle, but she has to try. Together with the help of a fashion-impaired receptionist named Cookie, Charley sets out to bring the bad guys to justice. She just hopes Reyes is not one of them. And that she’s not hallucinating from her self-induced bout with insomnia.


Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet {#4}
        Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.
     In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.


Hope to see you there!

"The Mourning After" ~ Lost Girl Recap

Posted on Mar 20, 2012 with 3 comments

Mar 20, 2012


"The Mourning After"
Season 1; Episode 10

    Bo is hired to investigate the suicide of a woman by her sister. In the process of doing so, she encounters a Dark Fae succubus named Saskia. Saskia displaces Kenzi in Bo's life, and the new pair attempt to solve the mystery. Trick in the meantime is threatened with the loss of his bar, The Dal Riata, when a business associate arrives to claim an item from him which seems to have vanished. Kenzi agrees to help Trick locate the missing item by summoning a Lightning Bird for him. Bo comes to battle an Albaster, who is the natural enemy of the succubi as her investigation continues with deadly results and Bo making a decision about Saskia's involvement in her life.


My Take:
     It's a Friday night and Kenzi and Bo are at home talking about waxing, length, horniness, and drinking Pinot.  This train of thought is brought on by a bout of cleaning weapons, and boy, do the girls have weapons at the ready, trunks full of swords and knives. Kenzi is lamenting the fact that the two of them don't have hot dates on a Friday night.  She goes on to ask Bo if she wishes that she were with Dyson.  Bo tells her that Dyson and herself are taking things slow and that the relationship is hard work.  Bo then asks Kenzi for a blade and Kenzi takes the opportunity to make a naughty joke. The girls are playing with a dummie and target practice is the name of the game.  Bo is trying to explain the dating scene to Kenzi and how she will no longer go out of her way to find that perfect someone.  She states the fact that she's been a "Try-sexual", you know, men, woman, fae, and humans, she's tried them all.  Bo goes on to tell Kenzi that the dating scene is a killer.
 
   Somewhere in town, outside the cavernous depths of a club playing Euro dance music, a couple is saying goodnight to each other.  After each one tells the other of the wonderful time they spent and kissing goodbye the male starts to walk away, only to have the female stop him from walking away. She then invites him back to her place for a drink.  Flash to her bed, heavy smushing, panting and lip locking is going on, it seems everyone is enjoying themselves.  The next day, the woman wakes up to find herself alone in bed.  She then is in the bathtub, writing on the window that is arms length away with what looks like a lip liner.  It seems like she has self esteem issues, she continues to write on the window, she writes whore and all its synonyms.  She then takes and turns on the hairdryer and drops it in the bathtub with her, electrocuting herself.
    Soon after, Dyson and Hale are at the scene of the suicide.  The decide that there were no signs of forced entry and the writing on the window can be considered a suicide note.
    Bo and Kenzi meet with a lady that happens to be the sister of suicide girl,  she doesn't believe her sister would ever commit suicide.  She found their flyer and hopes they will take her case.
    Bo and Kenzi go to visit Dyson for help on the case. (These two are giving each other the look, and it's cute.)  Dyson tells Bo that it could be a fake suicide but that Bo will have to get the help of Doc Lauren if she wants more help, because his hands are tied, the humans think it was a suicide and that's how he has to handle it.
   Bo pays Doc Lauren a visit, the good doc wants to know why Bo hasn't answered her calls. Bo blows her off and wants to know about the girl that died.  Doc tells her that it could have been a fae kill, but there is no proof to the fact. Lauren tells her that the dead girl had sex before she died and that it appears it was consensual.  Bo goes on to tell her that she doesn't trust Lauren's opinion on sexual matters.  Bo tells Lauren that she ruined any chance they had of being together, she leaves, telling Doc that she has to meet with Kenzi.
 
   Kenzi walks into the Dal and ask Trick for a drink.  Trick informs her that he is busy and hands her the shot glass and the bottle.  Kenzi is just pouring herself a shot when a small person walks into the bar speaking in a deep Irish brogue and sporting a flower in his breast pocket. (Could it be a leprechaun is in the house?)  It seems he is talking to Trick, Kenzi can't help but to make a lovely wise crack, Kenzi and Trick share a weird look. Kenzi is in awe of the name he is calling Trick, she looks at Trick and whispers the word, "Fitzpatrick?".   He keeps calling Trick, Fitzpatrick, and goes on to remind him that he has only 24 hours until he has to give back the coin.  Trick tells him he knows what day it is and calls him by the name of Valentine. (Could this be the embodiment of Cupid?)  Valentine then tells Trick that he'll see him tomorrow, unless Trick wants to hand over the coin to him now.  As he says this, he tries to grab the little box on the bar.  (I didn't even notice that box when Kenzi walked in.) Trick tells him to step back and and wait until he's invited unless he wants to lose a hand.  Valentine steps back and tells Trick that he will be waiting for him at midnight and for him not be late, because Trick knows the consequences.  He then leaves the Dal.  Kenzi pours herself another shot and asks Trick what that was all about, Trick tells her to mind her own business.  Just then Bo walks into the bar and grabs Kenzi's shot and drinks it.  She goes on to spew about Lauren, she then grabs Kenzi's arm and tries to pull her away from the bar, but Kenzi resists.  Bo tells her that they are late for the meeting with Colette and that the dead woman had sex before she died. Kenzi doesn't want to leave, she wants to get the 411 on the little person.
 
    Bo and Kenzi meet up with Colette at the dead sister's place.  Bo is asking her if her sister told her about the guy she was to meet up with.  It seems a bit much for Colette and she leaves the keys for Bo to lock up when she finishes the search of the house. (We finally have a name for dead girl, Allie!) Kenzi and Bo check out the apartment for any leads, all they find is a large selection of books that delve into the world of love and how to find it and a bowl full of match books from a the same local bar. The girls decide to head over to Crimson and check it out by having a drink.
   Once the girls arrive at Crimson the sound of music is thumping in the air.  Everyone is either drinking or on the dance floor having a good time.  Some guy comes up and takes the girl's photo and then hands them a card.  As the girls continue they notice a sign that says Singles every Friday and realize that it must be the event the dead girl participated in on Fridays.  While they enter the roped off section of the club, there's a lady watching them. Once they enter they are greeted by Bertram, it appears to be a speed dating event, he wants them to grab a name tag and enjoy themselves.  Once Kenzi finds out that it is a speed dating event, she's in a "hell no" frame of mind.  Bo grabs her and tells her it's important if they want to find info on Allie.  And so begins the hastey game of musical tables and Bo's Oscar worthy performance of the needy girl, looking for love.   Bo uses her succubus powers to get the answers she seeks.  Kenzi, on the other hand, is in all her Klepto glory and making a killing as she pours it on with her bag of tricks.  The girls continue to speed date until a woman, the same woman that watched as they entered, sits across from Bo.  Bo smiles and tells her that she didn't know that it was a girl on girl kind of thing. The woman reaches over and kisses Bo, but it's no ordinary kiss, she's a SUCCUBUS!  Talk about being shocked, Bo is floored and just stares at the woman.  Kenzi is sitting at the next table and watching in awe. While Bo is in an opened mouth state of mind, the succubus wants to know why she's poaching in on her hunting grounds.
 
   She then walks out of the club and Bo and Kenzi follow her out into the alley.  She goes on to tell Bo that she's new in town and that Bo should mark her territory, it was plain rude that she didn't.  Kenzi makes a pee comment, and is looked at by the other succubus like she's deranged.  Bo tells her that she is the only other succubus that she has ever meet.  The succubus is bewildered by that a fact and wonders how it is even possible.  Bo invites her to a beer to explain it all.
 
    While they are all having drinks, the Succubus goes on to tell Bo how she ended up in town.  She tells Bo that succubus gravitate towards exciting towns and that there are lots of succubus in Berlin. Bo tells her about the case she's working on and the succubus can't believe that she works.  She goes on to tell Bo that succubi don't work and that she has so much to teach her.  Kenzi wants to leave the club, but Bo wants to stay and pick the other succubi's brain for a while. Bo gives Kenzi the car keys and tells her that she plans on taking a cab.
    Kenzi ends up at the Dal, eating peanuts to chase down her shots . (Kenzi is becoming a regular at the fae bar, hmmm.) She's mumbling about how uncool things are and Trick overhears her.  Kenzi ask him if he's listening to her and Trick informs her that she's not the center of the universe.  Kenzi tells him that first Bo ignores her and now he does. She starts to walk away and tells Trick that the next person that wants to crap on her can find her at home.  Trick stops her and apologizes for being mean, he tells her that he's under a lot of pressure and needs her help.  She  offers to find Bo, but Trick tells her he needs her help.
    Back in Trick's treasure room he shows Kenzi a book that shows a coin, the "Coin of Jahayla”. He explains the coins power to bring luck in business and how Valentine and himself found it a long time ago.  The coin couldn't be cut in half because it looses it's abilities, he wants to give it back but he can't find it.  That's where Kenzi's help is needed, he tells Kenzi that he needs a human female to find it.  He then tells her to meet him back, tomorrow.
    Bo is still getting to know the succubus by the name of Saskia, back at Crimson.  She shows her a picture of Allie and asks if she's seen her. Saskia tells her that she looks familiar but she doesn't know who she is.  She tells her that she never spoke to her.  Bo wants to know if she saw her with anyone, Saskia tells her no, but she wants to help Bo with her case.
   Bo and Saskia go to speak to Bertram and ask about Allie. Bo wants to know if there were any complaints. Bertram tells them that she was wonderful and every guy that met her put her name on the cards.  She was a favorite, but was very picking.  Bo puts the moves on Bertram in order to get the names of the men that participate in the speed dating group.
    Bo is back at her place with Saskia and Bo makes a call to Dyson.  Dyson wants to meet for drinks, but she tells him no, yet wants to know if Dyson will run the names of the men in the speed dating group.  Dyson tells her yes, and ask her how her evening was.  She tells him and hangs up.  Saskia can't believe that Bo lives in the dump that she does, she doesn't want anything to do with the police, she tells Bo that she is dark fae and can't afford to have anyone involved in her life.  Bo begins to ask her questions, Saskia starts to tell her that one or both of her parents must have been sex chi eaters in order for her to be a succubus.  Bo stops her to take notes, but Saskia tells her not to worry that she'll be around to answer questions. Bo is so happy that she has found someone help her learn more about herself.  Kenzi walks in and wants to know if they have sex, would there be a black hole created, or a will they cancel each other out.  Saskia tells her that she's not into other succubus.  Saskia then leaves the house, and Kenzi wants to know why Bo is talking about the case with her. (Kenzi is a bit jealous.) Bo tells her to chill and that she just needs to learn as much as she can about her kind, and this might be the only person that can help her.  Kenzi understands and  just tells Bo that she just worries about her.  Bo says goodnight to Kenzi and tells her that Saskia and her will be visiting Colette in the morning.
   Colette answers the door and starts screaming her head off.
The next day Bo pays Dyson a visit at the station.  He tells her that there are no leads with the names of the men, but that there have been a dozen suicides with the same type of graffiti left at the scene. He tells her that he can't help her on an official capacity, but if she needs him for her to call him.  He then wants to know if she wants him to go with the to visit the sister, but Bo tells him, no.  He tells her that she looks different and she smiles and tells him that it was too many drinks the night before.  As she's saying this she puts her arms around his neck and stares up at his face. (Awww!) She tells him that she knows that she can count on him, thanks him and then leaves.
    Bo and Saskia go to meet with Colette and let themselves in with the key she gave them.  There's no one to meet them and Saskia is complaining about the early hour and how she needs her beauty sleep.  Bo tells her that she wanted to catch Colette before she left for work.  They find Colette on the sofa and bottle of pills spilt on the coffee table.  Bo tries to wake her up, but nothing is working, Colette has no pulse and is already cold.  Saskia notices the graffiti on the walls and on other places and wants Bo to tell her more.  When Bo tells her that the sister did the same thing, she tells Bo to move that it's a Albaster doing the killing and they have to leave quickly.
    At the Dal, Trick is gathering ingredients and items to summon the Lightning Bird's lighting, which is how she travels. He tells her not to look her into the eye and try to have her give Kenzi an egg..  He tells Kenzi that one of her eggs can be used to find any missing item.  He also tells her that only a female human can hear and see her.  Kenzi wants to know why Trick can't just tell Valentine about the coin, he tells her that he put the Dal up as collateral.  Kenzi tells him not to worry that she will help save the Dal from Valentine. Trick tells her that he'll meet her back at the Dal after sundown.
 
    Back at Bo's place, Saskia is explaining about the Albaster.  She explains that the Albaster are the natural enemies of the succubi.  Albasters make people feel bad about sexual behavior, especially women. It then leads to eating disorders, depression and even suicide.  Bo tells her that now they will have to go after the Albaster because she let Colette down.  Saskia is surprised and wants to know what they should be looking for.  Bo and Kenzi use the photographers site to bring up pictures on the computer for the club.  They find a picture of Allie with last man she had sex with.  Saskia finds it exciting and thinks maybe she should pick up a hobby.  Bo jokingly tells her that she's converting her, but Saskia tells her that it's the other way around. The whole time Kenzi is rolling her eyes with all the bonding going on between Saskia and Bo. As picture come on the screen, Saskia recognizes the guy in the pic and tells the girls that he comes into the bar at the end of the night.  Bo wants to know if Kenzi will be coming with them, but Kenzi tells her that her dance card is full, and she has other things to do.
   At the Dal, thunder strikes the floor before Kenzi and Trick. Kenzi wants to know what they have to do now, and Trick tells her that they have to wait until the bird shows herself.  Trick then turns and continues to pick things out for the meet with the Lighting Bird. Trick tells her that the Lightning Bird likes shiny objects like a magpie does and takes it from the people they help.  Kenzi wants to talk payment for her help.  She wants a cut of the bar, but Trick tells her no.  She then ask for the coin, and Trick says no.  She then goes on to as for free drinks for life and he agrees.  After they agree, Kenzi turns around and finds that the bird lady has just arrived.  She tells Trick that the bird is in the house.  Trick can't see her, but Kenzi curtsies and  bows her head.  The bird lady is not impressed with her efforts.  (She has a bitchn Jamaican accent.) 
   At the club Saskia and Bo are in search of the guy in the picture as the walk through a dancing crowd.  They spot him right away. (talk about a horrendous dancer) They both double team him and sandwich him in between themselves and they start to sway to the beat of the music and turn on their succubus.
     At the Dal, the bird lady tells Kenzi that she can call her, Gloris.  Gloris and begins to pick up all the shiny objects around the room.  She goes on to tell Kenzi that she has always liked the humans because they never ask for anything, but she points at Trick, who is still trying to find where the bird lady is by way of flaying arms, and tells Kenzi that it is men like him that always want something.  She asks if the he wants one of her eggs.  Kenzi tells her, yes, that he does. Trick turns around when he realizes that Kenzi is talking to  Gloris.   Kenzi goes on to call Trick a bastard. Trick calls out Kenzi's name to stop her from ruining his chances for an egg.   Kenzi then tells  Gloris  not to give them one, that they don't own her, Gloris is quick to completely agree.  Kenzi keeps telling bird lady that if they want eggs they can go to the grocers for them, Gloris feels the same way.  Kenzi pours her a glass and makes an "in prontu" toast. Kenzi shares a look with Trick, he is beginning to understand that Kenzi is pulling the wool over  Gloris 's eyes. She then tells bird lady that she needs an agent, someone to help make a deal for her egg.  That if she gives Trick her egg, Trick will then owe her a future favor.  Gloris is astounded that it can even be done.  Kenzi assures her it is so and Trick says that he will indeed owe  Gloris  a future favor in exchange for an egg. (Trick is not at all happy, but he gets the egg.) She tells Kenzi that she doesn't know why Trick asked for her help, when he could of gotten what he needed by just writing in his blood book.  Trick wants to know what the bird lady said.
  Bo and Saskia are putting moves on Carter and asking him questions using their succubus powers.  Saskia tells Bo that is she's too gentle and begins to suck his chi, and almost kills him before Bo stops her.  She tells Bo not to worry and returns his chi.  The guy tells them that he didn't do anything with the girl and Saskia gets up to leave with Bo.  Bo wants to know how she did what she did and if she can do the same thing.  Saskia tells her that she has a lot to teach her.
    Down in Trick's treasure room he is cracking the egg and adding the ingredients in order to find the coin.  Trick dips the amulet in the egg mix and then hangs it over a map and allows it to show them the location of the coin.  It appears that the coin is at the cemetery and that Trick wants Kenzi and Hale to help him out.
  Bo arrives at her house and is on the phone with Saskia and is thanking her for the ride home, when all of a sudden Bertram says, "Hello, whore.", while his eyes light up.   Bo tells informs him that she knows that he is the Albaster.  She wants to know what he's doing in her house.  He tells her that she let him know that she was a succubus when she tried to use her powers on him. He says that he will be happy to teach a succubus a lesson, Bo tells him he is the one that is in need of lessons. Bo's cell phone is ringing and the id caller is showing that it's Saskia, he just smiles at Bo.
   Kenzi, Trick and Hale are at the cemetery and entering a crypt.  Hale tells the others that the place creeps him out.  Trick tells him it creeps everyone out.   They push the lid of the tomb and find a corpse but, no coin, Kenzi tells them she knows where to find it.
   Back at the house Bo is questioning Bertram,. Bo tries to use her succubus moves with him, but he is stronger and is using his powers to control her. Bertram is stronger and is killing Bo.  Saskia shows up  and begins to suck his life and then sends him flying across the room.  She then turns towards Bo and helps her out, Saskia gives her some of her power and helps her up.  As Bertram lays on the floor, Bo is pissed. She stands up and wants to show Bertram a thing or two.
  At the Dal, Valentine shows up to collect the coin, Kenzi is there to inform him that she knows that he pulled a con on Trick.  Valentine acts like he doesn't know what she is talking about, Kenzi goes on to tell him that he had the coin all along and that she knows he was at the cemetery retrieving the coin, that he hid, because she found flowers all over the place. He continues to deny it but Kenzi tells Hale to frisk Valentine down, but Valentine is quick to tell the truth, handing the coin over to Trick and then leaving in a huff.
   Back at Bo's place, she is tying Bertram up to a chair with duct tape.  Both Bo and Saskia are making him delirious with lust.  Bo calls him a hypocrite and turns to call Dyson to pick him up.  When she comes back she finds that Saskia has killed him.  Bo wants her to bring him back to life, but Saskia tells her no, he has killed, and he tried to hurt her and deserved to die. Saskia tells her that her people will punish her if they learn that she killed one of her own to save Bo.   Bo tells her that she will never tell them.   Saskia tells her that if she wants to learn more she will have to find her, when she is ready.  Saskia walks away and leaves the house.
 
    Bo and Dyson take Bertram's body to Lauren, he is dead, and they will have to tell the dark fae that he tried to kill Bo in her own home, and that is why he was killed.  Dyson tells Bo that he will take care of everything.  Bo hugs him and tell him, that she wishes he could, and then leaves.
    Kenzi has her feet up on the table at the Dal and is having a nice pint of beer. Trick tells her that the bar is closed, he asks if she plans on moving in, and Kenzi tells him that she is in no rush to go home.  Trick realizes something is up and wants to know what is going on with Bo.  Kenzi is playing it cool and tells him that Bo is making new friends.  He tells her that people rarely take a person for granted unless they let them.    Kenzi tells him that a lighting bird told her something about him, that his power can make things happen.  She goes on to ask him if he knows anything about that.  He tells her that she has a wild imagination and she should go home.
    Back at the house Kenzi notices that Bo is sad, when she ask what is wrong, Bo tells her that they always talk about her and that she wants to know about Kenzi.  Kenzi is thrilled and starts to talk non stop about her day.  Bo acts like she is listening, but she is staring at the red jacket that Saskia left.  


Note:  Kenzi just shines for me, the more I watch the more I think that Kenzi should be the center of attention and not the Lost Girl, a truly wonderful secondary character that makes the lead pale in comparison. Bo will have to meet up with Saskia soon to learn more, I wonder if she is not working with the dark fae.
