Meet Bo. Raised human, she’s actually a supernatural succubus (it sounds worse than it is). Her kiss can kill and she can kick your butt - and that's even before she's had her morning coffee. Read on to learn all the events of Lost Girl's first season - and how Bo discovered who (and what) she truly was.
When we first met Bo, she was working as a bartender and rebuffing the advances of some creepy guy. Getting nowhere with Bo, the guy spiked another young woman's drink. The target of his sleaze: Kenzi (seen here), a spunky drifter with a wig collection that would rival RuPaul's.
Bo came to Kenzi's rescue by working her kiss of death on the sleaze - namely, by sucking out his life force. Bo took her home to crash, and the next morning found herself telling her soon-to-be-best-friend about how she gets terrible cravings that force her to prey on people (via making out with them).
Enter Dyson, a werewolf detective who's as sexy as he is scruffy. He and his partner Hale, a 21st century Siren with a voice that can hypnotize, immediately recognized Bo's sloppy kill as a case for the supernatural court.
Bo was restrained and brought to a mansion where she got a crash course on her lineage. She is Fae, a race of powerful supernatural being with incredible powers. Her captors represent two Fae factions - Light and Dark. The main difference, besides a predilection for bondage wear amongst the Dark crew, is their attitude about humans (guess where the Dark Fae lands?).
The head of the Light Fae (the Ash) and the leader of the Dark (the Morrigan, seen here) demanded Bo pick a side, as all Fae must. Bo, reeling from learning the explanation for her killer kiss powers, claimed she's neutral. No one bought the Switzerland act.
Meanwhile, a human doctor in the Ash’s employee, Lauren, told Bo that her Fae identity may not be the curse she thought. Although, like all Fae, Bo must feed on human energy, she need not kill to sate her cravings. This knowledge made Bo a bit more comfortable with her burgeoning attraction to the good doctor …
Not buying her neutral stance, the Ash and Morrigan forced Bo to fight for her freedom. Knowing Bo would need all the strength she could get, Dyson ordered her to kiss him, if only to draw strength from his sexy wolfy chi (P.S. since Dyson's a Fae, he doesn't die from locking lips).
After following a lead that promised to reveal the truth about her mother, an injured Bo once again found Dyson to be a very sexy nurse. Despite sleeping over for a night of sexual healing, Dyson claimed he couldn't be anything more to Bo than a band-aid. But Kenzi was convinced his feelings ran deeper.
After Kenzi suggested opening a detective agency, a rebuffed Bo found herself diving headfirst into the world of the Fae, helping those who could not find what they need from either the Light or the Dark. Dyson was never far away, often without his shirt on.
Bo and Kenzi became integrated into the lore and tradition of the Fae world through the advice of Trick, owner of the local Fae hangout bar. What Bo didn't know (but we did!) is that Trick held the truth about Bo's mother, whom she was desperate to locate.
Desperate to keep Bo distracted and in the dark about her mom, the Ash instructed Lauren to bring her flirtation with Bo to a head. Betrayed after their dishonest dalliance, Bo told Lauren to take a hike!
Bo brought on Dyson as her fake husband in a case at a country club (where Dyson's shirtless quota for the episode was filled with lots of bathing suit scenes). The simmering attraction between the two exploded, and they finally admitted they wanted to be a full blown couple.
A powerful succubus that Bo had befriended, dropped a bomb on her - she was her mother, Aoife! This was after Bo caught Aoife knocking boots with Dyson, whom she hypnotized (it happens). And that wasn't the only bomb. Aided by her army of Chippendale's thralls (seriously, they looked like extras from Magic Mike), Aoife planned on blowing up the Ash to disrupt the harmony between Light and Dark Fae.
Aoife kidnapped Bo, who, despite her mom being a total psycho that slept with her boyfriend, still had hope she could be redeemed. Not so, as Aoife went ahead and critically injured the Ash. Full blown Light and Dark war seemed inevitable.
With all hope seemingly lost, and Bo too weak to defeat Aoife, Dyson visited the Norn, a powerful, malevolent being, looking to make a deal with the devil. In exchange for taking what Dyson valued most - his love for Bo - the Norn gave Bo the strength to survive her encounter with her mother.
Aoife was defeated (and disappeared), war was averted and Dyson was nowhere to be found. As for Bo, she was left with a hollow victory and the burden of facing even greater danger. From where? Season two, obvs. Read on for her adventures there!
