As it turns out, there was a failsafe built into Reiner’s curse. He will die in less than 7 days unless his curse is undone once more with Trick's blood. Luckily for him, Trick's blood happens to flow through Bo’s veins.
Looks like Lauren dabbed some potion (made from Evony’s own DNA – remember the plastic lips Lauren peeled off after their first kiss?) where the sun don’t shine, and when it touched the Morrigan’s lips she became human, and therefore unable to melt Lauren with a glance as portrayed in the accompanying image.
But it turns out that Lauren only smacked her around a bit for science! Regardless of the outcome this little trick will make Lauren even more of a marvel in the medical community, but Evony’s blood will either take to the mutation or reject it, killing her within an hour. Set the clock.
Meanwhile, Tamsin explains the crest of the Queen – Bo’s quest and it’s place in a great prophecy that seems to call Bo out as the chosen savior of the Fae and all of her friends and lovers have a roll to play.
Elsewhere, Massimo has gotten his clutches on Lauren and reveals that he had been in possession of the Origin seed all along. He consumes it, believing that the Twig of Zamora will sustain him and falls to the ground gasping and flailing.
