'Lost Girl' fan recap: Who's your daddy?

Season 5 | Episode 4 | “When God Opens A Window” | Aired May 8, 2015

Just like Lost Girl to start off with a bang! It’s good to know Bo and Tamsin are getting along and sharing food, of both the edible and sexual kind. We meet a down-on-his-luck kid named Mark (Luke Bilyk) who’s also sharing—a mostly empty bus—with Maggy (Michelle Mylett) and trying to hit on her. Too bad someone just shot an arrow into the bus (out of sheer luck, Mark bent over) and killed Maggy.

Bo and Tamsin have a new case. Mark saw their ad. Tamsin doesn’t want to help; Bo does. Something about the kid gets to her. Buuuuut, considering Mark just ripped Bo off while the girls were discussing this, I’m with Tamsin on this one. A grifter and a fae? This should be fun.

If you’re wondering how the Morrigan is doing, Lauren’s gone to visit her. Still human, Evony’s done okay for herself by marrying for money. Also, as the money behind Lauren’s clinic, she’s very interested in the cure Lauren promised for her current human state.

Evony and Lauren

Well, Bo and Tamsin have caught up with Mark. They get the stolen goods back, but then Bo gets an arrow in the back, and Mark runs off again. Who IS this kid? Whoever’s after him is shooting some wicked arrows. Bo’s hurt, and even after Tamsin kisses her to heal her, the wound comes back. Luckily, Lauren just showed up. She saw the kiss (boo) but has her medical bag (yay).

Oh hey, Vex is back! Good guy, bad guy, who knows? Trick just took him to Dyson so Dyson can keep an eye on him and they can both go look into three new deaths. This should be … interesting. Also, Vex is looking rather dapper these days.

Vex and Dyson

Bad news for you Doccubus fans. Bo and Lauren haven’t had a moment alone since this season started, and now that Tamsin’s living with Bo, I’m not sure when they will. Tam’s not what you’d call a fan of Lauren’s. Still, Lauren did help Bo. The wound wasn’t healing because the arrow was laced with some sort of bizarre organism. The organisms are out, but we still need to find the shooter.

Where’s Mark? At The Dal, trying to pull the Nigerian Prince scam in person. It takes a little strong-arming, but Tamsin and Bo get Mark’s real story. He’s fae, but doesn’t know what type, lost his mother, and has been running from whoever’s chasing him as long as he can remember. Bo can relate.

As to who this hunter is, the team sets up a neat little play-acting ruse to trap him, and then Lauren goes totally overboard with the tranq gun. (You know Lauren, she doesn’t do anything halfway!) When he wakes up, the Hunter (Aaron Poole) explains that he very much has his reasons for hunting Mark. He says Mark killed his wife, child, and others—and then feasted on them. Uh oh.

If you’re wondering how Vex and Dyson are doing on their case, let’s just say things aren’t going well. Dyson’s so busy hating Vex (because he’s blaming him for all the things that Massimo did) that he’d rather shoot him than work with him. Luckily, Lauren talks him down.

Bo goes back to Mark with the story she got from the Hunter, and Mark swears that he didn’t do those things and that the Hunter killed his mother. He seems sincere, but is he? There’s also something about him that’s very alluring to Bo. I don’t know if he’s telling the truth or not, but Bo doesn’t seem to care, because they sleep together.

Meanwhile, Dyson, Vex, and Laurel are actually getting somewhere with their case. The bodies seems to have been used in some sort of ritual. A fae cult ritual. Points to whoever came up with THAT idea. During their investigation, they get very close to running into our lovely resurrected lady from last week, but Bo sends them after Mark, who’s gone to kill the Hunter.

Fae Resurrected

It’s a good thing Dyson went to stop Mark, because he’s figured out what sort of fae Mark is and why the Hunter is after him. Dyson smells something. Mark’s a Shifter. Just like Dyson. Or he will be once he has his Dawning.

He’s also Dyson’s son.


Bo’s face when she realizes she had sex with Dyson’s son is priceless. Mark’s not taking it much better. He’s pissed. Dyson never knew about him, but Mark’s still pissed.

Also pissed? Evony. The Morrigan is super unhappy about this whole “being human” thing. Lauren needs to fix it NAO. She even left a little evil motivation for Lauren: a very dangerous fae, currently in stasis.

While he may not be right with his son, Dyson’s found a way to deal with the Hunter. With a little help from Vex. Daddy instinct is strong and, since the Hunter just promised to kill both Dyson and his son, Dyson goes full wolf and kills him instead.

He may not be happy about life right now, but all the stuff that’s happening has given Dyson a new idea for his current case. The brands he found on the bodies form a shape.

Branded Fae

What that shape means, well, we’ll find out next week, I guess.

Lost Girl airs Fridays at 10/9C on Syfy.
