If last week’s episode was jam-packed full of action, this week offered some clarity in the death of two characters and one story line. While Daniel struggles with the twisted legacy of his family, Jack and Amanda are halfway to Nantucket before Nate Ryan makes his presence felt. Meanwhile, Emily, Nolan, and Aiden hatch a plan to flip Padma. The Graysons host their annual labor day party and are confronted by Helen Crowley’s replacement (I told you so!), played by Burn Gorman of Torchwood. The Graysons point the finger at Amanda, since Victoria planted evidence under her bed. As Ashley tips off Emily that Amanda has made a play against the Graysons, Emily realizes the danger Jack and Amanda are in, and she and Nolan hop a speedboat to Nantucket. Aiden and Padma demand proof Padma’s father is alive, and receive his finger for their trouble. Silly people, haven’t you learned not to make demands upon the Initiative? The show ends with an explosive (literally) sequence that leaves the Amanda on the bottom of the ocean, two people dead, and one shot in the gut. We finally get some tears and heavy emotion from Emily, who’s had to hide her true feelings constantly. A pretty enjoyable episode…

Lost Girl: “The Kenzi Scale” (Season 3 Episode 6)

I wasn’t happy with the last episode, but fortunately this one wrapped up the fake Kenzi mini-story line. We actually get to see Tamsin’s ability for the first time, and it was awesome! It left Dyson a wreck. I thought the episode was interesting for the fact that all of Bo’s friends believed fake Kenzi instead of Bo and locked Bo away. It took Tamsin, Bo’s adversary, to recognize something was wrong. Tamsin turned the corner in this show, helping Bo and facing down the Morrigan. Rachel Skarsten is a great actress…she’s had to walk around with a perpetual smirk or angry glare for most episodes, and there was the “slumber party” a couple of weeks ago where she had to act like a teenager with Bo. In this episode, when Tamsin makes a comment about how her friends wouldn’t have rescued her, Bo tells her that maybe she needs new friends, and Tamsin gets teary-eyed watching Kenzi and Bo’s reunion. Plus a new story arc is introduced – Bo must undergo some kind of Fae personal trial. It sounds like “the Quickening” from Highlander. Still to be addressed is the fallout from everyone distrusting Bo. Now that we have Kenzi back, I’m intrigued once again…
