Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including for Season 5, Episode 9, “44 Minutes to Save the World," which aired last night on Showcase in Canada. We'll re-share this Bo/Dyson-centric recap when the episode airs on SyFy in the U.S. in early 2016!
Welcome back to the final 8 episodes ever of Lost Girl!
We start where we left off: Bo with the box on one side of the door, Zee and her protests on the other side warning of doom and gloom. “The answers in a gift” Bo recites while Zee shouts undermining invectives like an Internet troll: “You think you’re special?! You think you’re strong?! Everything is because of him!” Bo decides it might take evil to fight evil and opens her box (not like that!). When she hears the nursery rhyme chime, Zee carefully inches out of and away from Hilton Hovel.
A white light and some dust spring from the opened box, surprising Bo. The box’s interior goes suspiciously black and then…nothing. Absolutely nothing happens. “Dad?” Bo queries the empty room. Nada. Zilch.
Which is why Bo is startled when someone suddenly knocks on the door. She carefully opens it to reveal a bald man on her doorstep. “The end is nigh,” he warns. Anyone else go right to The Cheese Man when they saw this guy? Just me? Ho-kay.
When asked, he introduces himself as John. “Do you want to be saved?” Bo, clearly having a very different conversation, asks what he wants. “I wanted to invite you to prayer circle on Wednesday. The end of the world is coming.” Snort. Bo rolls her eyes and shuts the door in his face. “No kidding.”
