Lost Girl 5x08 Recap and SPOILER Thread: Succubus in a Box

Bo and Dyson in Lost Girl 5x08We'll be recapping Lost Girl as it airs on Showcase in Canada and we'll be repromoting them as it airs in the United States on the SyFy channel. Enjoy and discuss!

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 8, “End of Faes.”

Tamsin is moving out of Hilton Hovel under protest from Bo who claims she and the team still need Tamsin. Tamsin rightfully doesn’t believe Bo’s platitudes anymore and claims she doesn’t need Bo, which, let’s be honest, she never did. Tamsin seems over last week’s rejection and claims that Bo’s heart will always be with Doctor Lauren and they’ll always be a couple even when they’re not. You know what? I can’t even bother unpacking all the bullshit that’s in that statement anymore. Bo wonders where Tamsin is going to go. “Wherever the universe takes me. Motel 6. And then wherever the universe takes me.” Heh.

Lost Girl 5x07 Recap and SPOILER Thread: Succubus at the Heart of the Storm

Bo and Dyson on the case in Lost Girl 5x07We'll be recapping Lost Girl as it airs on Showcase in Canada and we'll be repromoting them as it airs in the United States on the SyFy channel. Enjoy and discuss!

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 7, “Here Comes the Night.”

Chaos reigns in the streets of Faeronto. A tornado touched down in downtown, wrecking cars, pinning people, generally wreaking havoc heretofore unseen. Dirty and disheveled, Dyson and Bo slowly make their way through the disaster. They’re both visibly stunned by the scope of the damage around them. It’s very dark; look, they put such a dark filter on this episode, it is really hard to make things out. I’m all for ambiance and playing with shadows, but we the people have to be able to see what’s going on in order to know what’s going on. And it’s not like Lost Girl was such a brightly lit show to begin with.

Bo hears someone calling for air in a car pinned down by a telephone pole. She runs for the door while Dyson lifts the pole off the car. “Hasn’t every annoying person ever told you: lift with your legs,” Bo orders. “Way to make light of a heavy situation,” he replies as he hefts the pole off the car. They get the people out. Tamsin hurries up to tell them the tornados passed on to the east. Dyson goes to take care of the humans they freed. Tamsin thinks the scene looks like a battlefield and she’s seen enough to know. “Shit got real.” Frightened, Bo admits she’s never seen anything like it. Tamsin puts her arm around Bo and promises it’s nothing they can’t handle together. “You’re my girl.” Bo starts to have The Talk, but backs off instead. Wandering through the wreckage she finds a huge mark of the triskele burned into the street.

[Saved by the mark...]

Lost Girl 5x06 Recap and SPOILER Thread: Bring It On, Succubus

We'll be recapping Lost Girl as it airs on Showcase in Canada and we'll be repromoting them as it airs in the United States on the SyFy channel. Enjoy and discuss!

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 6, “Clear Eyes, Fae Hearts.”

Bo sits in an ethereal white room wearing a white gown turning the crank on the box Daddy Hades sent her last week from which comes a sweet lullaby. It’s almost exactly like that cool season two promo, except, as the camera slowly pans up, we see it’s not Bo; it’s Doctor Lauren. She turns and smiles at Bo, still cranking away at the box. Try not to get hit over the head by the metaphor. Bo wakes from the dream with a gasp and sits up in bed deeply troubled by its possible meaning. Is it prophetic? Is the doc a tool of Hades? Or a victim? Or does she just crank Bo’s box? Okay, now it hit us upside the head. One thing’s for sure: It means my doccubus-free bliss is apparently coming to a quick end. Oh well. All good things can only last for so long…like season one.

Lost Girl 5x05 SPOILER THREAD: Luck Be a Succubus Tonight

Bo and Tamsin in Lost Girl 5x05We'll be doing full recaps for Lost Girl when it airs in the United States on the SyFy channel. Meanwhile, enjoy a quick summary of last night's episode and discuss!

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 5, “It's Your Lucky Fae.”

It’s Bo’s birthday! And we know how that always goes so well. Already, she’s got a box delivered from Daddy, which is about as creepy as it sounds when your Father is Hades, Lord of the Underworld. Talk about your gifts from hell. Inside the gaily wrapped box is…another box. Older and creepier and loaded with potential dire meaning, but still, a box. Incidentally, it’s the same box that Bo was winding in the promos for season two, so props to Lost Girl for continuity! Wow. There’s a sentence I never thought I’d write. ­­­-

The card enclosed reads Happy Birthday, Precious. Love, Daddy. Who do you think did a package pickup in hell, UPS or FedEx? Properly freaked out, Bo calls Cassie the Oracle for a confab. Cassie is only too happy to have her dating site date interrupted. She wants Cassie to tell her what the birthday gift from hell means. “All I’m good for, right?” Cassie sneers. Gotta wonder when the last time was that Bo gave Cassie a call without wanting something from her. They agree to meet at The Dal the next day for pints on Bo and a consult.

[Happy Birthday, Bo!]

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 4, “When God Opens a Window.”

Tonight on Lost Girl—Dyson’s a daddy?!

Bo and Tamsin are still working out the kinks in their roommate agreement. For example, Bo expects when Tamsin says she’s coming back with weapons, she doesn’t mean stopping to bang a hottie in Bo’s bed. And Tamsin would like Bo to stop cock-blocking her when they’re shaking down a potential client turned suspect as it undermines the bad cop spiel she’s perfected over the centuries. Still, it’s nice to see they’re learning to share things like Chinese food and one-night stands…

Lost Girl 5x03 SPOILER THREAD: Sayonara?

We'll be doing full recaps for Lost Girl when it airs in the United States on the SyFy channel. Meanwhile, enjoy a quick summary of last night's episode and discuss!

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 3, “Big in Japan.”

Tonight, Bo and Tamsin take on a case, Dyson teaches Doctor Lauren to defend herself, and Bo loses her mojo. Oh, bee-have, baby.

Bo has lost her mojo. Big time. She can’t feed and while she wants to bang, not even a half nekkid (Hot Tattoo Alert!) and totally willing, no-strings-attached (hah! Heard that one before) Dyson can rev her up. Neither can Doctor Lauren’s tepid neck kisses or Tamsin’s matter-of-fact offers. This essentially makes Bo human—unable to feed means unable to heal—and it comes to a quick head when she’s stabbed by her case-of-the-week (yay for returning to cases!). Doctor Lauren stabilizes Bo at her fancy schmancy new Fae clinic but is unable to heal the internal bleeding. Tamsin prods Bo into confessing the heart of the matter: the loss of Kenzi. Bo is convinced she’s destined to be The Chosen One alone, slowly but surely abandoned by all the ones she loves. “I’ll always be alone.”

[Don't say that, Bo!]

Note: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Lost Girl, including last night's Season 5, Episode 2, “Like Hell, Part 2.”

In Like Hell part 2 Bo bangs her stepmother and walks and talks around Tartarus a lot which last week was Valhalla but I geddit. When you’re filming at the Royal York hotel, you’re gonna milk it for all its worth. Despite walking all over the place, Bo never meets her father YET AGAIN. Instead, Bo is attacked by a pooka goblin, confused by the voices in her head, and ultimately saved by the only woman with a suckier fate than Pandora—Persephone. Their sexy healing times inadvertently conjures some in tandem ghost sex for Doctor Lauren back at Hilton Hovel. Only afterward does Bo find out Persephone is married to her father, Hades. Now that’s keeping it in the family.

Surviving DrOutlander: Bridging the Gap of 20 Years

The following post includes spoilers for the Outlander series. Like big, honking ones. No, seriously. Proceed at your own risk.

I’ll admit, I’m reaching deep to get through the long, dark days between the end of Outlander S1 part one this October and the debut of part two on STARZ network April 4, 2015. I came this close to adding Jamie’s eye-sexxing as my mobile wallpaper talisman to make it through. Here at Heroes and Heartbreakers, we’re pushing through this six-month Droughtlander on a steady diet of nekkid JAMMF GIFs and banked episodes on our DVRs.

Why—WHY—must they torture us so?!

Looking ahead, this may be a small drop in the Long Wait Pond. It’s already been announced that Outlander the television series plans to film one season for each book in the Outlander saga. This means season two will be based on Dragonfly in Amber (DIA) and season three on Voyager. Anyone who has read these two books knows that Jamie and Claire are separated at the end of DIA in a pretty freaking definitive way. They remain apart for the first third of Voyager as they (unknowingly) wait 20 years on either side of a 200-year divide to be reunited.

So the question has to be asked: how will Outlander the series handle their 20-year separation?

[I have a few ideas...]

Serious as a Hart Attack: Cristin Harber’s Titan Group

Hart Attack by Cristin HarberHart Attack is the seventh installment in Cristin Harber’s Titan series, a military romantic-suspense series about an elite group of operatives.

Roman Hart is a member of the Titan Group, haunted by a mistake he made that cost someone's life. The heroine, CIA operative Beth Tourne, is also suffering from her past, wishing she could go back and correct her own mistake, one that meant she failed her husband when he needed her most.

Beth’s inner turmoil over her husband’s death keeps her from being able to move on and enjoy a physical or emotional connection with another man, too afraid to risk it when, for all her love for her husband, she missed clues to his ultimate unhappiness. Lately, the most stimulation she’s gotten has been baiting and poking at Roman safe in the confidence that it can never go anywhere real.

Beth is also stuck in her professional life where she’s so successful in her role as party girl monitoring the social elite of Washington D.C. that the CIA has no desire to fulfill her request for more challenging field work. Until Beth is given a new assignment: woo an international money-launderer and keep his attentions and affections by any means necessary. Yeah, like that. Now the personal and professional walls she’s constructed to survive her heartache are crumbling down at Roman is right at the center of the eruption.

Orphan Black Season 2, Episode 10 (Season Finale!) Recap: Clones Unite!

Tatiana Maslany as Sarah Manning in Orphan Black Season 2 episode 10Orphan Black blew us away last year (you may have seen our Season 1 recaps during the hiatus?) with its riveting performances (led by Tatiana Maslany), brilliant storytelling, and intriguing romances (like Sarah/Paul and Cosima/Delphine). Now it's back for Season 2, and so are our weekly episode recaps. Buckle up—we have a feeling it's going to be quite the ride.

This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Orphan Black, including last night’s Season 2 finale “By Means Which Have Never Yet Been Tried.” Enjoy!

Welcome to the season finale of Orphan Black. Grab your glass, get comfy, and strap in! It’s one hell of a ride.

Sarah stands in a dark corridor. She is systematically stripped and interrogated over her medical history all while being methodically if hastily examined. Sarah does not resist but rather sits quietly and endures the humiliation. The examiners are faceless; who they are doesn’t matter. “Are you taking any prescription medication?”

Interspersed with this cold inspection is the heated argument Siobhan and Sarah are having in Mrs. S.’s parlor, presumably right before Sarah turned herself in. Their fight is in the fuzzy background as a devastated and still slightly drugged Felix sits in the foreground trying to come to grips with his unwilling part in Kira’s abduction.

[It'll be OK, Felix. Right???...]

Wearing yellow rubber gloves streaked with blood, Donnie stands over Doctor Leekie’s corpse, which lays on his garage floor. Alison enters through the side door wearing pink on pink but for her matching blood-streaked, yellow rubber gloves. She pauses a moment when she sees Donnie. “I cleaned the car!” she informs him brightly. She asks what he’s doing. “I think those are his brains,” Donnie moans. “They’re congealed.” Alison steps next to him to consider the body and takes a deep breath. “Pitter-patter, Donnie. Let’s get to it.”

A van tears through downtown Toronto, weaving through traffic at high speeds. Sirens can be heard; presumably the cops are chasing the van. It pulls into a garage. A small-sized man with a kerchief masking his face jumps out of the driver’s seat. He checks the street but they seem to have gotten away. A larger man is in the passenger seat wearing a ski mask. “What the hell were you doing?” Man 1 asks Man 2 as he opens the door. Man 2 insists he’s fine despite bleeding from his side from a gunshot wound. He tells Man 1 they need to switch cars. Man 1 helps Man 2 through the garage. “Thought you had that place cased,” he complains. “That was a freaking ambush!” He wonders who their assailants were, “not cops. Not feds either in $400 shoes.” Man 2 bitches between breaths that he told Man 1 to stay with the whip. Man 1 points out if he had, Man 2 would be in the morgue now. Frankly, that looks inevitable anyway. Man 2 collapses before they can get to the car. He swears when he sees how the wound is very bad. Man 1 crouches before Man 2 and pulls down his kerchief. HOLY SHIT, IT’S A BOY CLONE with a serious almost monobrow.

Alison and Vic the Dick are making the place settings for Family Day at the New Path Wellness Center. Alison is going on about how her neighbor Aynsley always thought she was better than Alison but showed her judgment in little jabs and nasty looks. Vic the Dick commiserates that he hates people like that. “I guess, in that sense, she had it coming,” Alison decides. Vic the Dick wonders what Aynsley had coming. Alison awkwardly brushes it off as “an incident” but Vic the Dick encourages her to unburden herself. “That’s why we’re here.” When she continues to resist, Vic the Dick gets all serious and promises Alison she can trust him. “The stuff that I’ve done? No judgment.” She pauses and then confesses how she slept with Aynsley’s husband in a parking lot. “Do you think I’m awful?” Vic the Dick thinks she’s brave for sharing. “Feels nice. Feels good, no?” Alison agrees. He begins to tell Alison that her next step is to forgive herself, but confession felt so good the first time, she interrupts him to go for broke. “Then I killed her.”

This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Orphan Black, including last night’s Season 2, episode 6, “To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings.” Enjoy!

Sarah and Helena are camped out in the wild. Honestly, that’s a sweet tent. Also, who set them up with supplies? Or does “survivalist gear” automatically come with when you use Mrs. S.’s truck? Actually, that wouldn’t surprise me at all. Helena is eating something from a can. Surprise! Sarah wonders remarks on her sestra’s iron gut. “I only ate half,” Helena says handing the can over. That’s some clone love for you right there. Sarah takes a whiff and passes it back uneaten. Helena chides that she has to eat, but Sarah would rather talk about Cold River, which isn’t on the map. “That would spoil the surprise,” Helena teases. Sarah wants to know why Helena doesn’t just tell her where Duncan is so they can take him to Leekie. “If you knew where Swan Man is, you would leave me behind,” Helena accuses. Sarah grimaces at getting caught out. Helena asks her sestra that if Sarah has Kira and she and Helena are twins, “could I have babies too?” Sarah asks why Helena wants to know that. “I’m very good with children,” Helena replies matter of fact. I can see Helena’s Craig’s List advert now. Sarah side-eyes her but makes no further comment. “You said the Proletheans did something to you,” she says instead. “Something about “married”? What happened?” Helena shrugs and puts on a knit hat. She says doesn’t remember given she had “the fever.” Sarah pulls on a jacket while Helena announces that Kira is lucky. “You are a good mother.” Sarah scoffs that she doesn’t think so.

[Aw, Sarah, give yourself more credit than that...]

First Look: Laura K. Curtis’s Lost (May 20, 2014)

Lost by Laura K. Curtis

Laura Curtis
Lost
InterMix / May 20, 2014 / $4.99 digital

Tara Jean Dobbs was a Texas police officer until her friend Lucy Caldwell almost died on her watch. She’s since left the force, left Dobbs Hollow, and vowed to never let a loved one down again. So when her best friend Andrea joins a seemingly harmless spiritual cult—only to disappear without a trace—Tara decides to find out what happened by becoming one of the Chosen herself.

Five months later, no one’s heard from Tara, and FBI Agent Jacob Nolan is going after her. Taking a false identity, Jacob finds it surprisingly easy to play the part of Tara’s boyfriend. But as they uncover the inner workings of the Chosen, they realize how much danger they’re in. Because Andrea isn’t the first follower to conveniently disappear—and they may be next.

Lost is set almost entirely in the world of a reclusive cult and Laura Curtis delves deep into what such a society might get up to behind its electrified fences. There’s a lot of logistical detail as to how the members spend their time and the creep factor unrolls slowly as the novel unfurls. This setup is necessary to understand the dire straits both Tara and Jake have willingly entered into, and the dangerous dance they perform to keep the cult from discovering their true intentions, but it does make for a slower start to the story during the first third of the book. But once the action picks up, it spirals out from the cult’s restrictive environment and ups the intrigue levels. I was particularly surprised by how far Curtis took Tara and how high the stakes were raised and it certainly raised my appraisal of the book as a whole.

[Sounds intriguing!...]

Doctor Leekie supervises the apartment clean up and sighs over the carnage. The PROJECT LEDA photo is in his hand and Sarah is too smart to leave that behind accidentally. Rachel arrives, Paul in tow. Despite Leekie’s objections, Rachel demands to see Daniel’s body. She slowly approaches the body. She’s incredibly upset – well, for Rachel, that is, but when she looks at Daniels body, her jaw clenches. Leekie and Paul flank her on either side at her back. She stops at Daniel’s feet and waits and blinks and then waits a moment more. Finally, when neither man anticipates her need, she rolls her eyes. “I’d like to see him please.” Honestly, the eye-roll ‘bout killed me. So much aggrieved annoyance there. Men. Paul does her bidding and whips the plastic back. Rachel crouches by Daniel’s body. With halting movements, she lays her fingers over his eyes. Leekie offers his sympathies, adding that Daniel was a very loyal man. “To you,” Rachel notes bloodlessly. Unable to help himself, Paul asserts this wasn’t done by Sarah. “No,” Rachel allows as she rises to stroll into the bathroom. “I believe we all recognize the handiwork.” As she moves, Helena’s clone-stick-figures-drawn-in-the-blood-of-her-victims calling card is revealed to be on the wall. This time, it depicts two clones, Sarah and Helena, with Kira swinging from their hands in between them. What was Sarah doing while Helena finger painted the walls?

Bleeding from the head and nearly unconscious, Sarah tries to rouse in the crashed car. Also bleeding, Daniel sprawls unconscious beside her. Through the window, we see the truck slowly back up into frame. Through her mental fog, Sarah hazily hears Cal calling her name as he leaps from the truck that just hit Daniel’s car. It had to be him in the truck though I wouldn’t have been surprised if it’d been Mrs. S. I’m not putting anything past that woman.

“Oh, shit, I’m sorry,” he gasps as he reaches the car. “It was you?” Sarah says duly. Cal admits he didn’t know what else to do. He quickly opens the door and as he takes off her seat belt—seatbelts save lives! —she finally comes all the way back and frantically asks where he left Kira. Cal assures her Kira is OK. “You hit your head,” he nearly moans. They’re both seriously freaked out. He scrambles to get her out of the car, but she lunges back in at the last moment to snatch the Project Leda photo and Daniel’s gun.

Out in the middle of a field, Sarah and Fee wake up in the truck Sarah stole from the birdwatchers. She checks if he’s all right and, when Fee snarks about how much he adores camping, reminds him it’s less camping and more sleeping in a truck. “I slept in a flatdeck. In my world, that’s known as camping,” he insists while Sarah pops a squat. “Otherwise known as ‘homeless in the country’.” He checks over his shoulder before asking how much of the last night’s bloodbath Kira saw. Sarah assures him Kira didn’t see Mrs. S. take the shot at Barry Birdwatcher. “Our dear old mum’s a dead eye with the rifle,” he muses with disbelief. “Just makes me queasy.” Sarah solemnly relates how cold Siobhan was when she took the shot, “like she’d done it before.” Pretty sure that’s a given. Fee thinks it’s all crazy. “It’s Mrs. S.! She makes tea and…taught me piano.” He hops off the back of the truck and straight into a cow pie. This sets Sarah off laughing like a loon while Felix epically freaks and that all wakes Kira who sleepily asks what’s funny. “Uncle Felix camping is funny,” Sarah says warmly. “We need to get to civilization,” Fee declares.

Helena lies unconscious in a hospital bed while a nurse details her arrival to a uniformed cop. Their voices are hazy, as though Helena hears them through the fog of her coma. “Eastern European accent and scarification?” he asks. “Angel wings,” the nurse clarifies. She also notes that Helena has no I.D. but hands over the contents of her pockets. “Sugar packs and lollipops?” the cop queries. Just be glad she didn’t stick some globs of Jello in there too. “Shot point blank in the chest and she just walks in? How is she even alive?” That is the question indeed. Helena takes this moment to gasp back into consciousness as her heartbeat accelerates to a crazy level, even for CrazyClone. The nurses sedate her.

It’s raining in Cloneronto. In a full out panic, Sarah sprints down the sidewalk. She’s running so fast, it’s a struggle to keep her hoodie up to hide her face. Skidding to a stop under the awning of a diner, she pulls out the PinkMobile and dials Felix while chanting “pick up, pick up.” Alas, she gets his voicemail. “Leave it for Felix.” Heh. Sarah leaves a message. “Fee. Shit! Fee where are you? They took ‘em. They took Kira and Mrs. S.” Disconnecting, she’s looks to see where she is. She ducks into the conveniently empty diner. The big, bald bruiser of a cook takes one look at her soaking wet, ragged form in his doorway and immediately offers her of coffee. Sarah concedes that she’ll take tea instead. She slides into a booth and checks her lip, which is still bleeding from her fight with Helena. Pulling out the PinkMobile, she checks the short contact list: Alison, Beth, Cosima, Felix, Paul. She calls the first name on the list only to hear the three-toned ring of, “The number you have reached is not in service at this time.” Swearing, she goes down to contact three: Cosima. “The number you have reached is not in service at this time.” Now she frowns at the phone. Once is annoying; twice means something’s wrong. She clicks on the only name left to her and stares at it with frightened indecision for nearly a full minute. Steeling herself, she calls Paul…and her head nearly hits the table when she gets his voicemail. “Paul, what the hell is going on?! Did Rachel just take my family? I need you to call me now.”I’m a tad puzzled here since they were in the elevator together at the end of season one when she got the news from Cosima that they could not deal with the Dyad Institute. Based on that, I expected them to have made plans to meet up later when Sarah went home only for her to find Kira and Mrs. S. gone. Guess not.
