Additional Q&A with Emily Andras: Part II
Here are Emily’s answers to three more fan submitted questions that didn’t make it into our live chat due to time constraints. Part I can be found here.
A lot of series do musical episodes… like Buffy & Xena. Do you see that at all in the future of Lost Girl – seeing as you also have some “musical” cast members?
Buffy set the bar pretty high on this one, so we’d have to find a new angle on it. How’s that for non-committal?
Was there actually a line in the script in episode 303 where Lauren whispers something suggestive to Bo? Or just a stage direction?
Imagine the sexiest, more blush-inducing innuendo your Doccu-lovin’ brain can cook up: It was ten times better than that.
What is your opinion on the love triangle at this point so far? Is there any possibility where the show might move away from the love triangle and focus on other dramatic plot points in order to create tension and conflict among key characters?
Love is amongst the purest human endeavors. There’s a reason every great story since time began has revolved around it. With regards to our little show: if you’re going to follow a character whose blessing and curse begins and ends with sex, lust, passion, and obsession, then romance is going to be part of the equation. Still, Lost Girl is more than the sum of these parts – which is to say, I take issue with the wording of this question (shoot me: I’m a writer and words matter). We often focus on other dramatic plot points to create story. And it’s disingenuous to suggest that Bo’s pursuit of romance doesn’t get the fans’ motors running…it very much fuels admiration for the show, DOCCUBUS.COM (ahem). Let’s face it: Bo’s exploration of the different types of love – familial, sisterly, erotic, and epic – is fascinating, and the audience, though divided, is clearly very engaged with Bo’s choice. So, to me “I hate the love triangle” often translates to “please, please pick my ship”. In short (snort!): do I want to watch Bo flip-flop between the wolf and the doctor forever and ever, amen? Not necessarily. But be careful what you wish for.
Now ask me who I think is endgame (I’ll never tell!)
