Guest Blogger Series: “Episodes 412 & 413: Endings and Beginnings” by Mahlers5th and Valksy

And here it is,  Mahlers5th and Valksy‘s analysis of the last 2 episodes of Season 4. We’d like to extend a big thank you to the both of them for their contributions throughout the season.  And we hope that you have all enjoyed their insightful pieces.

Architects of the world
I walk your streets and live in your towns temporarily
Architects of the world
You’ve served us well until now, but soon we’ll be on our own

(Nova Heart, lyrics by Gordon Deppe)

Sometimes the lights all shinin’ on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it’s been.

(Truckin’, lyrics by Jerry Garcia)

Valksy

A long, strange trip indeed, as the writers placed us all on a mystery train that seemed to obscure boundaries of reality and invited us to accept a world more steeped in “magic” than ever before.  The first few seasons of Lost Girl introduced us to an alternate universe to our own where all myths had an organic biological grounding.  There was always a question whether the Fae created mythology to obscure their own existence and cloak themselves in the supernatural, or if stories were told by humans who had experienced the Fae for themselves and struggled to make sense of the encounter.  But the core of “magic” still had a rational explanation:  Yes, there are succubi.  Yes, there are brownies.  Yes it is all real.

“Someone you love very much will soon be dead”

We were certainly given plenty of time to brace for the worst. Even before season four began, the title of the opening episode (“In Memoriam”) hinted that one of the core group might not have survived the season three finale. In Episode 403 (“Lovers. Apart”) the death of the star-crossed lovers – the Fae bodyjumper and her human lover – highlighted the obstacles faced by cross-species romances and seemed to presage a violent end to one of our cherished ships. In episode 406 (“Of All the Gin Joints”), the subplot involving Ianka and Marcus, the aria from La Boheme, and the many references to Casablanca  all suggested that before the season was over, someone dear to us might sacrifice himself or herself for the greater good. Hale was already bleeding from his ear by the end of that episode – never a good sign – but surely the writers wouldn’t rob Kenzi of her first real shot at happiness…would they? Flora’s murder near the end of “La Fae Epoque” (episode 407) left us fretting whether Lauren was long for this world. The Leviathan’s warning in “Destiny’s Child” (episode 409) was unmistakable — someone Bo loved “very much” would soon be dead, and even though her fate had already been written and sealed by the writers, I still prayed, “Dear God, please don’t let it be Lauren.” Tamsin was on her last life anyway, right? She seemed like a logical choice. But my real money was on Rainer. I wanted him dead anyway, and since Bo had been at least brain-washed into believing that she loved him “very much,” he passed the Leviathan test.  Like Cinderella’s older sister, I was desperately trying to make the shoe fit somebody, anybody, other than Lauren.

Guest Blogger Series: “Episode 410: Making Waves” by Mahlers5th and Valksy

Enjoy Mahlers5th and Valksy‘s analysis of episode 4.10.

When you end with an ending like 409 and [Bo]
shows up with some hunky guy and says,
“He’s my destiny,” I think everyone expects
something when they come back for the next episode.
I know it drives fans crazy, but I love upending
those expectations. You wanna stick around to
see what’s happening here.

We all want things we can’t have.  Being a decent
human being is accepting that.

As I watched a beaming Bo at the end of episode 409, seemingly enthralled by the glowing golden handprint on her body, introducing Rainer to the others as her “destiny,” I was reminded of the old serialized episodes of Doctor Who that I watched as a child.  I learned then that cliffhangers, apparent perils, and shock revelations were rarely genuine.  They were intended to hook the viewer’s attention and manipulate us into coming back for more and needed be taken with the proverbial grain of crystallized sea salt. With that in mind, I found myself reserving judgment about the relationship between Bo and Rainer and regarding their scenes more dispassionately as simply the next step in an intricate, plot-in-progress.

Guest Blogger Series: “Episode 409: Destiny’s Child” by Mahlers5th and Valksy

This week, enjoy Mahlers5th and Valksy‘s analysis of episode 4.09.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience

in which you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the
thing you think you cannot do.

[Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living]

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go
Can’t do it alone, I’ve tried
And I don’t know why.

[Lenka, “The Show”]

Valksy

In the second scene of episode 409, Bo makes an emphatic declaration that surely must have been sweet music to the ears of many viewers:  “Don’t you see what is happening to me?!  Not knowing is driving me crazy!  This has to end now.”  Questions of what happened when she was with the Wanderer — Who and what is he?  To what degree has he influenced her behavior since her escape? Is she lost forever? — have been driving many of us to the edge of frustration too.  Here, finally, the Bo we once knew and loved seems to have resurfaced. She has rediscovered her voice and her agency, reasserted her position of leadership, and resolved to “get to the bottom of this once and for all,” come what may.  Although the “Groundhog Fae” episode was (mercifully?) not referenced in the preamble to episode 409, is seems likely that Bo’s new energy and determination stem from having found the courage to articulate and accept her worst fears during her personal Yuletide reckoning with Krampus.
