"Original Skin "
Season 2, Episode 9
Opening scene has Kenzi going all ga-ga over her new shoes, she is dancing on air. Bo's reading a book on the bed and isn't paying any attention to Kenzi. Kenzi won't have Bo sitting at home and pinning over Dyson, she tell Bo that they have to go out. After Kenzi sets out her plan of action for the night, Bo agrees.
The girls arrive at the Da'l, dressed to the nines, the place happens to be empty, it appears that Bingo isn't anyone's forte. Trick is at the bar with Hale and Dyson, and Dyson is the last person she wants to see.
In the back room where Trick keeps the keg of beer, an odd looking dude walks in dressed in white, he then plunges and empties a syringe into the keg, making weird faces the whole time.
Lauren tells Bo how great she looks and then Bo tells here how awkward she felt kissing her in front of Nadia's comatosed body. Lauren totally ignores the comment and tells her that she needs to speak to Trick. (What a bitch!) Lauren tells Trick that she can't find information on the Shaman that cursed Nadia, Trick tells her he's trying to find information, too.
The kicker is that he tells them that he's tracking an escaped prisoner named Raynard, and that he believes that he's hiding in the Da'l, no one can leave. He's a dark fae tracker named Wood and he shows them the kind of power he wields, to keep them in line, especially after Hale shows him his badge.
Wood tells them that Raynard is crazy and has the ability to hijack one of their bodies. Trick has issues with him keeping them all hostage, but Dyson agrees that Raynard has to be stopped. They learn that Raynard stole the blood of a Gorgan and plans to use it. Dyson picks up his scent in the back room, Raynard is slouched in a chair, but alive.
It seems that Bo is the one that has had her body taken over by Raynard. She finds herself in the amysticon with the creepy little girl with mad news. Bo wants to know where she is and the Nain Rouge lets her know.
Wood is explaining to everyone what they need to do in order to find out who is carrying Raynard. Kenzi keeps forgetting that the wine is poisoned and has to spit it out.
The Nain Rouge tells Bo that they call her "the harbinger of doom". Bo finds out that the reason the child keeps showing up is that Bo is the doom awaiting the fae. She keeps calling Bo, Ysabeau. Bo wants to know why and the kid tells her that's her name.
Back at the bar Bo is acting strange and Kenzi can tell right away that Bo is not herself. When Kenzi tells Wood, Bo takes Kenzi and places her in a choke hold. Bo who really is Raynard at this point threatens to finish Bo off. Dyson tells him that he would killl him first.
In Limbo, Bo is trying to get answers form the girl. She keeps letting Bo see her future of doom, but Bo doesn't believe the visions, visions of her killing Trick. She tells Bo to follow the light in order to get back to reality, Bo chooses a door and walks through.
Raynard, in the body of Bo, is still choking Kenzi, but something makes him loose his grip on her and Kenzi escapes. Wood grabs Raynard and throws him onto a table, he's just about to stab him, when Dyson stops him, telling him that body belongs to Bo. All of a sudden a black smoke like cloud leaves Bo's body, but then she's sounds like Wood. It seems like Wood is now in Bo's body and Bo is in Wood's. Things are going crazy the smoke cloud is making the rounds with everyone in the bar except Trick, he didn't drink the beer. By the looks of it every one has changed bodies and Raynard is still in one of them, but no one knows which one. Trick suggests that everyone wear name tags. As it stands here is who is in who if you know what I mean. Ciara is now Hale, Hale is now Ciara. Bo is Wood and Wood is Bo. Dyson is now Kenzi and Kenzi is Dyson, but who has Lauren changed up with?
Trick is speaking to Wood about the dangers of a war if a dark fae is able to kill the Ashe. Wood wants the bounty on Raynard's head regardless of who catches him. Only humans can leave the Da'l because of the spell Wood placed. Only Dyson, in Kenzi's body, can leave. Kenzi and Hale start kissing and saying good bye, it looks very weird, yet we know it's Ciara and Dyson.
Wood is still chained to the chair, but soon sets himself free with a hairpin and leaves the Da'l.
Dyson, in Kenzi's body, enters the Ashe's compound to find bodies everywhere and a Raynard, in Lauren's body holding a syringe filled with Bella-dona to The Ashe's neck. (If the AShe couldn't stand Lauren before, imagine how he's going to feel every time he see her, now.) He greets Kenzi telling her that she finally made it, but Dyson explains that he's Dyson. Raynard mentions that he's just speeding the process of the war along, because something else bigger is coming, he can feel it. Dyson then asks the Ashe if he's redecorated and he says he has but he's keep some things the same, like the floor. Dyson kicks a blue disk in the floor with Kenzi's new set of heels. Electricity comes out of a stain-glassed window to electrocute Raynand.
Bo tells Trick about what the Rouge said and showed her. She went on to tell him that she called her Ysabeau. Trick makes a fleeting comment, but doesn't say more. (Was it just me or did he pause and then look at her under his lashes. Trick has more secrets.)
The Ashe is telling his security detail that they will have to beef up security. He then goes to a chest, unlocks it and opens it, taking out things until he reaches a small compartment at the bottom. There lies a decapitated head that is the mirror image of the Ashe except it has pointy ears. (Snap, it seems the Ashe has a twin.)
Note: Entertaining episode, Kenzi played Dyson superbly, but the others were lacking in their renditions. It seems to me that Trick knows more about Bo than we thought. I don't understand Lauren's attitude with Bo, maybe she regrets taking Bo to see Nadia? I really don't like Lauren, Nadia and her just don't gel for me. The small admission Dyson makes to Kenzi is interesting, could it be that after being with Ciara his feelings for Bo started to resurface. Otherwise why did he place his finger on Kenzi's lips, to keep quite, didn't the witch takes his desire for Bo? The fact that the Ashe has a decapitated head in a truck is beyond odd, but I guess we'll find out more later. I enjoy this Ashe more than his predecessor. Did you catch the action between Hale and Kenzi, even though it was Ciara and Dyson, I can't help but wonder if it's not a foreshadowing of what's to come. Well, I guess we'll all soon find new things to ponder next week.
Kenzi's Best Lines:
