Great things!

EVONY IN JEANS!!! OMG, has this ever happened?

1)  DARK BELCH BEER!
2)  Levony, with Lauren being a sneaky badass.
3)  Opera.
4)  Anvils
5)  Kenzi being awesome.
6)  Khan (Con) collectible action figures


Sad things

1) Vigorous Dybo
2) More wildly crazy lines//actions from Lauren (who is this person.  I have no idea anymore. /sadpanda)  but who cares, its nice to see her laughing.  Even if it's for double crossing purposes.
3) Recycling the lines of "Nobody owns you" from Dyson--> To Bo while screwing.  (my fangirl world shattered in that small tiny moment)
4) Convoluted caper requiring a fae dictionary...again
5) The whine fest of the tragedy of Light and Dark not being able to "beeeee" "tooooogether".  Thanks for taking that too from doccubus show.  Damn you trolling writers.
6) Crystal...we have no idea where she is.  Probable Bus strike off screen.

To be completely fair and honest, I'll take Lauren's story over the pathetic Dyson whining and Bo simpering ANY day of the week.  Even if she's separated from "the gang".  At least it's interesting.  On the left hand however, it's rather depressing that they cannot integrate this character with the others.  They can't.  It's like their shtick.  Frustrating.

I am really interested to find out what exactly Lauren is up to. Its obvious that she has some sort of plan. I did like the Evony/Lauren stuff but Im still on the fence if Evony is being as truthful about the "deal" as she appears, my guess is that there is more to it than that. The rest of the episode wasnt that great although Bo may have had an epiphany about the way shes been acting so Im interested to see if that is the case. Dybo is still as boring & nauseating as ever at the end of the episode I was reminded of S1 with Bo going on about how amazing Dyson is. Cant wait for next week though Bo & Lauren teaming up, cant wait for that. 

Im also liking this Lauren for some reason, I feel that she is growing as a character, into what I dont know but I am intrigued. Another thing I liked that I forgot was Kenzi in this episode. Bo tries to tell her to leave/stay behind & Kenzi flat out refuses and does what she wants

Anvils.  I'll make a list.  Let's start with this one.

Speaking about the enslaved fae singer who is starving...

1)  "The GPS is in her necklace"-- Dude
     "Than I'll rip it off her" - - Bo
     "Try it and you'll only tighten it around her throat"-- Dude

2)  Necklaces layered in explosive threat.

3) "I took life in a weakened state.  I am no more." -- Lanka
    "Someone would have always tried to own me."  -- Lanka as she's sacrificed herself to stop her lover who had turned controlling and possessive talking to Bo
    "In captivity I heard stories of the unaligned succubus.  You are what made me believe I could be free."   "Your heart is what you want it to be."  ----Lanka

4)  "To it beginning." --Lauren to thin air after taking the Morrigan's DNA under her lips.  SO AWESOME.  My only caveat to this is if they do make Lauren the big bad evil... I will cry.  Because while she is incredible doing anything, it's just another feather in the problem of her characterization and how tropes follow lesbians around TV like a bad plague.

P.S.  After an hour of consideration, I really liked this episode.  Even if the story is still a hazy shade of winter.

ETA After reading EA's Loop, I have to admit, none of this will probably come to fruition.  It's all stuff infinitely tied to Lauren, but gets glossed over completely ALL the time... love... hate.  This show.

kedrie tons of anvils you're 100% right!

So many parallels.  Every couple Bo has encountered along the way is looking for freedom.
And the female partner looking for freedom is always wearing white, gee just like Lauren in all the promo pics.

She has angry sex with Dyson, again, even pushes him in the same position as her last encounter with Lauren.

But can we just take a moment to celebrate ZOIE DANCING  :egyptian:

UGH the feels  :(w00t)

Thing I liked:
Everything Lauren - the dancing, the banter, the star trek (though i dont watch myself)
Kenzi taking charge! KALE!
Kenzi saying she misses Lo (naw)
The B-E-A-utiful singing in this episode!

Things I not so much liked
Dybo sex. Barf, once an episode is more than enough
How there didnt seems to be any acknowledgement of how Ianka's situation related to Lauren's in terms of freedom (but maybe thats just my own thinking)
The recycling of classic doccubus lines with dyson. barf x2

Still, an enjoyable episode~!
How could I ever get over her...?

I agree with everyone about likes & dislikes!

Great episode - but because Lauren has growth, she "helps" and Levony!

Honestly, can we say that Dyson has any character growth as much as Lauren? He's been static since S1.

I love this Lauren. She saved the episode with Evony scenes. And gotta love more Lauren she is the best genius ever. And Bo is more selfish that ever. Dybo was boring.

OMG Lauren dancing. I love love love love this woman.

Drooooooooooooooool

Lauren and dancing. Lauren and smiling. Lauren and beer. Lauren and collectible action figures. Lauren hatching a plan. I SHIP IT!  ;D

I am very happy. ;D

Laurigan was the best part of the ep. Also Kale.

PS: I am so excited to see Lauren's new condo/flat and lab facilities. Even if it might be short lived.

PSS: The #1 item on my S4 wishlist was Lauren happy and strong.  :(bigups)

Lauren is too cute...her Star Trek obsession.

Might I say though, Evony looks amazing this ep. Thank you wardrobe & hair for keeping Lauren  and Evony looking like regular people and not that helmet hair!

Bo's outfit...not to my liking...but everyone else was fine... especially Lauren & Evony in jeans/shirts.  :(nod)

They did well this episode! Well, Lauren being cute and happy saved it for me. Bo is still an immature ass. Plus eww...the Dark/Light forbidden deal? Ugh, hate the way Dyson said it...It's FORBIDDEN.  We knew it would happen...but still, I rolled my eyes.
