Lost Girl Season 4 has finally ended in the US. I stumbled upon some Canadian spoilers about 4 weeks before the finale and found them pretty upsetting. So just a warning to those UK fans, don’t read this blog post if you don’t want any spoilers.
First the whole story plot about Rayner/The Wanderer was terribly confusing. I admit that I was a Lost Girl just trying to keep up with this season. The writers were kind of all over the place, or maybe I was doing too much multitasking while watching TV. Sure, we probably shouldn’t of had the demon escape (allegedly Bo’s father), but they could have used that as an extended plot (thinking on the lines of Supernatural here – how many times have they used a plot line through like 3 seasons?) and used it that way. Now, that doesn’t mean we would still have Hale – it would mean we would have Kenzi still. With that being said, from other things that I’ve read over the internet – it doesn’t mean that Kenzi (played by Ksenia Solo) is gone forever. Although I do anticipate this would be closely under wraps at the Showcase studios. Kenzi is a very loved character in the Lost Girl fandom, it would be terrible to see her go. Although, like many of the other sci-fi shows that I watch, sometimes they don’t really die or go away.
To explain, Supernatural has ghosts – Lost Girl hasn’t really showed “ghosts” much, but with the ideas of there being a limbo or afterlife – there could be points where Kenzi actually hangs out. I’m not completely sold that’s what they will do with the Kenzi character. It will likely be very challenging and we may not see Kenzi for several episodes. However, I really think and hope that Showcase doesn’t leak that Kenzi will be coming back – give us some suspense.
Obviously Tamsin will be on her way out soon, given that the wings of Valkyrie are the sign of the last year they will be alive. (According to Lost Girl lore.) Will S5 be her last season or will she be around for at least a couple? Hard to say. We haven’t really been told about the “life cycle” of the Valkyrie (or I just don’t remember).
Now that The Wanderer is out of the picture, what will happen to Bo and Lauren/Dyson? It’s been great seeing Lauren and Dyson become close friends over this season. Probably one of my favorite parts of S4, I swear my experience at ECCC 2014 had nothing to do with it. (Haha) Perhaps they can form a stronger poly-amorous relationship, although I know the teasers between Lauren/Dyson/Tamsin/etc. have been great for the fan-base to pick sides. Bo really seems to be gravitating towards a poly-amorous lifestyle.
We have gotten a confirmed guest appearance from Charisma Carpenter (popular as Cordelia Chase from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) for Season 5. Charisma will be playing the popular Norse Goddess, Freyja. (Courtesy Huffington Post – Canada) It will be interesting to see how the Lost Girl writers and costume staff actually have this role in the series.
Well folks, those are my thoughts for today. Thanks for reading!
