Love the promo photos! I'm looking forward to seeing some Kamsin! We haven't had Rachel and Ksenia scenes yet, and seeing as Kenzi has been there for Tam during her rebirth, I sense a growing bond forming
It could also be that Tamsin will be a bit different from last year. I posted over in the Tamsin thread that the last Tamsin never had friends. Never had anyone go to bat for her. She was always under the gun and she trusted no one, with the exception of Bo and Dyson, and even then she didn't tell them everything she was involved in.
This Tamsin enjoyed friends right from the start with Kenzi and Dyson caring for her and watching out for her. This Tamsin believed Bo hated her, that she was fated to be evil (thanks to Massimo)...but Bo came looking for her to help her. Bo who she thinks despises her still inspired her to go full valkyrie to go after Massimo to save Bo. This Tamsin had honesty and friendship bestowed on her in her very short life...she is still only less than 2 weeks old...and learned very quickly what true love is.
So while I fully expect we'll get snarky Tamsin back...and we'll see shades of her self-hatred and despair as her memories come back, they will be tempered, I think, by who she has become in this life cycle, thanks to Kenzi, Dyson and of course Bo. "And I wonder...can you really know yourself without memory? I mean, can you really know what you want?" - Bo Dennis, "Of All the Gin Joints"
I'm hoping that she'll be a bit different from last year and that we'll see that opposite side to her. I think it'd make perfect sense that even if her memories did all return, she wouldn't transform back into the completely cold Tamsin that we saw in S3...sure, she'd retain her sarcasm but I would hope that because of all she's experienced in her very short life cycle so far, she'd have a bond to those she's had the experience with; Bo, Kenzi etc. I just hope we get that alliance between them all and the writers make the memories add to the person she's already become so far, not make her revert back completely to who she was. I'm quite looking forward to seeing how Tamsin deals with the memories returning whether she deals with it well or it leads to despair and self-hatred, then again I am a sucker for punishment.
I might just be repeating what other people have been saying but that's just what I want to see happen to Tamsin
Going by what Rachel said at MCM about wanting Tamsin to be happy, I think tortured Tamsin is going to return. It sucks in a way, but that's also why I love her. Conflicted. Bo: "I'm alright, but I'm not perfect." Tamsin: "Yes, you are. To me, you are."
