Vacation Vixen: Lost Girls

Oh, you crazy Lost girls (and honorary Lost girl, Dyson). I love you, but I can’t believe you’re making me recap during my vacation. I do this because I love you. (New recaps up at AfterEllen each week, hint, hint.)

p.s. Holy shit, last night's episode. Kittens, do we need to taaaaaalk. 

p.p.s. Oh, hey, I am well aware Bo and Tamsin are bisexual and I am quite happy about it. So when I called them "such lesbians" in the context of the recap it was as a joking term of endearment that could be applied to anyone - women who love women or men or both and/or men who love women or men or both. It was referring to their processing, which is a trait often ascribed to lesbians. It was not an official declaration of how I identify them or how they identify themselves. It was a joke, which I like to do in my recaps and hope we all like to do with each other as friends. Precise language is important, but the ability to have a sense of humor about and enjoy each other and our community is also important. And now back to my vacation, which I continue to recap during because, again, I love you.

Im glad they are keeping Lauren OUT of Bo's revolving bed. Lauren has too much class to partake in that farce. I hope she stays cool and far away from Bo and to not stoop to being just another "SCREW" to Bo.

It is interesting that they really haven't shown Bo HAVE SEX with anyone except a few neck kisses on Persephone's neck. The "sex" have all been before and after scenes or noise coming from other rooms. Why is this ? Has the show all of a sudden gone PG. Or has Anna Silk said she will not do more nude sex scenes ?

Or, maybe because all these partners Bo is having sex with are unimportant.

I think you hit the nail on the head with the last sentence: because none of these hook ups have been emotionally important for where Bo is probably heading. Previously, in seasons 1 and 2, and even in 3, random sexual encounters provided the audience a fuller understanding of a succubus's extraordinary sexual drive. Now that's pretty clear, so I think the show is going to concentrate on emotional and (I hope) political resolutions to Bo's future and the Fae's future political organization, maybe even to how they interact with humans.

Yeah we need to talk about how you called Bo & Tamsin lesbians when they are patently bisexual...

*eye roll*

Can someone explain what 'processing' means? I'm a lesbian, and I'm unclear on this. Plus Google let me down on a definitive answer. Womp.

Processing - Talking out your feelings ... lots and lots of feelings

bo and tamsin are bi and now have been to bed with each other, where does that leave dr. lewis? .and yes, tamsin had a discussion with lewis to lay off bo-bo. my prediction is bo will align with lewis at the very last minute or with wolf man...who is quite good looking on his own...as a former hepthalon athlete...he has to keep up wih the wild women and heal just one.
is kenzi coming back and who will slay dad from hades?
have fun guessing!
