Evony: “Sure, I don’t mind being the dangling freaking carrot. The rain is great for my human hair.”

It’s hard to gather your bearings when you are just dropped into an aftermath of a storm. That’s what happened. All of a sudden, Bo, Dyson, and Tamsin were out helping people in some kind of chaos that was never really shown. Obviously, the ancients were behind it all, but it would have been nice to have a little bit of a lead in and not just get thrown into the aftermath.
The blackout was caused so the oracles could find everyone’s truth because it needed to be dark to see the light (aka Bo). Yeah, this did not make a whole lot of sense. What exactly did they hope to find? That Bo’s dad was Hades? Okay, that might make sense. Then, did the oracles go after Dyson, Vex, and Trick because they thought it was Bo at first, since they all had her blood in them?
This whole oracle situation wasn’t ever fully explained. There are too many questions. It would have helped to have another team pow wow session to further explain what the oracles were doing, and why they went to each person as they did, or even a chat with the ancients about the oracle scheme. Instead, we got a lot of romance drama.
In order to extract the truth, the oracles posed as someone their target loved or had feelings for. Bo saw Dyson and Lauren. Dyson saw Bo. These little chats did reveal more about what is in each of their hearts, but it wasn’t really brand new information. It just reaffirmed that Bo loves Dyson, and he loves her.
The most interesting and shocking moment was learning that Vex has a thing for Mark. It was entertaining and then surprisingly heartbreaking. However, as soon as this happened, something felt off, and it was frustrating that it wasn’t until the very end that we learned that it was a hallucination of sorts. It would have worked better if Vex and “Mark” happened last, or at least happened right before Trick’s hallucination.
Oh joy, the love triangles are back and more annoying than ever. The Tamsin/Bo/Lauren triangle showed up in a huge way. On top of Tamsin being concerned about Bo being around Lauren, and then walking in on them having sex, the romance hallucinations courtesy of the oracles just caused the romance factor of this episode to be way too much. It was overwhelming.
Sadly, things got worse. Tamsin told Bo she was okay with her sleeping with other people because Bo’s heart belonged to Tamsin. Cue the awkward chat. Bo told Tamsin that she was just confused. Yeah, Bo did not handle that correctly.
Instead of being harsh and telling Tamsin, someone who has lived a life or two, that she doesn’t understand her own feelings, maybe it would have been better for Bo to take the gentler route and just saw that she doesn’t return Tamsin’s feelings. All of this Tamsin and Bo drama was unnecessary. Tamsin should have never fallen for Bo in the first place. It didn’t feel genuine.
Oh right, in addition to all of this romance craziness, Evony’s little ancient fae escaped. It turned out that she loved this ancient fae but he didn’t love her, so she locked him up. Yeah, all of this was pointless and confusing. It did not really add to the storyline at all.
