  • That's it?

    This was a decent episode. I like things that play with your mind, and while I've seen it done better, it was somewhat intriguing.

    The problem with the episode is all the episodes before building up to it, telling us this would be the biggest challenge Bo ever faced, which it really wasn't. It also looked to me like the lack of details Bo had were a plot device; there's no way all the people who had gone through it before would not be able to prepare her better.

    Lastly, there was a bit too much, "this is an impossible thing that no one can ever do," "I follow no rules, there's always a It felt like Bo got through the whole thing pretty easily. I rather expected that in a future episode there would have to be some sort of reckoning, but instead the series just moved past the dawning, making if feel like something they hadn't really thought through.moreless
  • Definitely a mixed blessing

    On the upside, we have Bo proving---once again---that she is still her own woman. I mean; what Stella told Kenzie (re: the usual fate of fae-sponsored human wards who lose their sponsors) might be true for an age-old Light Fae traditionalist like herself. But, now even she has to acknowledge that Bo is a thoroughly modern, unalterably unaligned non-conformist. One who will never abandon her friends for any reason. Not so long as there is even one other alternative that she can hold on to with all the strength and tenacity of a pit-bull with a T-bone steak!

    That being said, I must now confess that I am more freaked out, than ever, by Bo's glowing-eyed, basso profundo mood swings. Because, it's now undeniable that they were _not_ symptoms of her pre-Dawning devolution! And, after what was shown to her in/by the Temple during her Dawning, I have to wonder if there isn't something more to the paternal side of her heritage. Something that might seem to indicate that her biological Dad (Trick's son, who is still mostly unknown to us viewers) might not have been a full-blooded leprechaun. That he might have been half something else on his own mother's side of the family.

    Hopefully, the question of what that might be will be answered before Season 4!moreless
  • not fair to lauren

    i really disliked this episode the most!!! i have watched all the episodes and this one was not my fav!!!!
  • Was Bo's Dad Odin or Perhaps Zues? The most confusing episode ever.

    I would have thought Hale would have been there and Tamsin. The other seasons you saw everyone. Kenzie is way to thin is she ill ?I really miss the Bad Boys Ryan and Vex. The cast seems tired or bored with there parts. When is Dyson going to take off the girly panties and put on his Big Boy pants. He is no wolf more like a kitten. Do you thing people wanted more money that's why the show seems a little thin this season? What was that horse with bat wings was it sucking souls or burning the people in the picture? Speaking if sucking why didn't anyone say anything about having there Chi sucked without permission ? And the voice about taking over the world what was that about? Still not a word about it like it was an everyday thing. Very puzzling. Oh and now Tamsin has to kill Bo or Linda Hamilton will???moreless
  • Not as exciting as I thought it would be

    Given that the last few episodes had been building up to Bo's dawning, I would think this would be a lot more exciting. However, the end result was... somewhat boring.

    Few things I did like though, Bo has evolved and there is a glimpse of her father. I don't think Bo is ever going to end up being with Lauren, the fact that she is also human would make it difficult for Bo (who supposedly probably won't ever die lol).

    One of the things I really felt uncomfortable with was watching Kenzie this week, she looked so thin that it was almost anorexic. Has she always been this slight? I would have to rewatch older episodes to be sure, but I really didn't think so. I always see Kenzie as more of Bo's sidekick rather than a 'pet'. In this episode they deprecated Kenzie so badly that it is almost demeaning. I am not sure what the writers were thinking.moreless

    • Kenzi: I know that you're gonna get through this. And I'm gonna be on the other side with mojitos. Because horns or not, we're gettin' drunk when this is done.
      Bo: What if I'm drooling and have back hair?
      Kenzi: We will get you waxed! You'll always be my girl, Bo. Even if you do come outta there with a dong. (Bo hits her) Ow. No dong.
      Bo: No dong.

    • Stella: Your empathy for the human species is commendable. But it's not the ancient way of the Fae.
      Bo: Maybe not. But it's my way. You keep saying I don't know who I am. Well, I know this, I will not murder for pleasure.
      Stella: Without a full feed, she will fail The Dawning. She will devolve. She will die.
      Kenzi: She will surprise the shit out of you. And you know, you'd think I'd get tired of watching, but I never do. And I never will, Stell.

    • Lauren: Do you know that I have a hard time believing that I ever found someone like Bo? That she even exists.
      Dyson: Yeah, I know what you mean. (about the Dawning) It's gonna be fine. I got a good feeling about it.
      Lauren: Well, I have a hard time measuring good feelings, scientifically speaking.
      Dyson: Yeah, sometimes it's not about what you can prove it's about what you believe.
