There’s a lot going on in this episode. We are introduced to Dyson’s new partner, Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten), who is an unlikeable Dark Fae character and potential new love interest for Dyson. Ted Atherton is awesome as police chief Robert Hamelin, and Jordan Pettle is also great as Atticus, a crocodile-like fae living in the sewers. When Kenzi’s friend Aussie disappears during an underground event, she gets Bo to take up looking for him. After a curious encounter with Atticus, who reveals that the underground fae are suffering from an unknown disease, Bo is interrogated in the police station by Tamsin over the dark fae she drained and left in a coma at the end of the previous episode. Tamsin and Bo immediately get confrontational as Tamsin suspects Bo and Dyson of having a history together. When an extermination order is given by the Ash, Dyson confronts Hale only to find out he ordered relocation, not extermination. Dyson hits the underground to find that Bo and Kenzi are already there. I won’t spoil the episode except to say that the police chief plays a crucial role in events, and his last name gives his identity away if you know your fairy tales.
The best parts of the episode are Bo escaping the police station not once, but twice, by charming a cop (“she’s still pretty!”); also Tamsin dumping a pot of coffee on Dyson’s desk. It’s not as funny as last week, and actually kind of a creepy episode. In a good way, though…
The fun quote of the week comes from Vex, while sitting in Bo’s Kimono with fuzzy slippers on:
Bo: Know this…if you go near my girlfriend, the little balls hanging from the Christmas tree next to you will have a certain panache.
Vex: Hook up illegal cable and what do I get? Threats against my junk. Typical.
