would that mean that Tamsin uses Trick's blood to change something? or...I don't remember how Trick's ability works
Added (09 Jan 14, 1:15 PM) --------------------------------------------- The Morrigan also uses black nail polish and i think Trick may strike up a deal to with her since he said something like "I'll give you my blood oath" to someone to protect Bo
Isn't he supposed to write things with his blood ? I'm a bit lost actually because there was also this thing about Bo being able to make people like commited to her or something because of her lineage with Trick. Also, in the pic RS posted, you can see two bottles, that look like the one used in the promo ...

Hugin and Munin are Odins messengers, or some such thing. Which seems about right with this little tidbit.
I had to do some research, because I'm wondering if the show is going in the direction that Bo will turn out to be Hel, the goddess of death in Norse mythology. So I had to figure out how she links with Odin, since he isn't exactly her father originally. And I found this; http://www.angelfire.com/journal/ofapoet/hel.html
When the Gods first learned about the children, they realized almost immediately that they might be the same children that they had been warned about. At first, they chose to believe that it was simply because of the terrible nature of their mother. Then, after they had considered it for a while, they came to realize that the children were the same ones mentioned in the prophecies; however, it was not because of who their mother was, that caused them such great concern; it was actually because of who their father was. Their father was Loki, who was known for causing great destruction and evil. Loki also happened to be the brother of Odin, the leader of the Aesir, which was a patriarchal and warlike tribe of Norse Gods and Goddesses.
Since there was no doubt that the children were Loki's, Odin decided that the best thing to do was find the children and then bring them back to Asgaard. [...] Odin ordered the Gods to travel to Giantland, find the children, and then bring them back to Asgaard. The Gods did as Odin desired, and when they returned from Giantland the three children were with them.
Obviously the writers must have changed the story a bit, but we know they do this, and I find it very interesting considering my theory.
So, Odin the Wanderer is known for spreading his seed, and producing children (with humans) Odin is Hel's "uncle" (blood relation between Loki and Odin isn't there. They are kind of sworn brothers) Odin sends out gods to find Loki's three children and bring them back, and Hel is given the world of Niflheim (renamed Helheim / Hel(l), and became the goddess of death.
Changed to be Odin the Wanderer / Rainer having fathered Bo / created her to be his ideal match. Loki is cut out of the equation, and a valkyrie is sent out to find her, upon which Odin is the one to go out and bring Bo/Hel back, to rule the realm of death (as she does in norse mythology, and which has been hinted at being Bo's fate in the show) with him.
I'm beginning to feel quite strongly about this now. What do you guys think?
Could be. You know...I've not seen many folks ask what I think is one of the most important questions about this whole thing.
Why does he want his perfect mate? Why do these particular qualifications appeal to him? Usually a quest for a perfect mate is to ensure that the offspring of that bond is powerful. Is that what he's looking for? If so.... WHY?

It seems to me as if Bo is almost brainwashed...but I don't know what to think about anything right now.
I'm exhausted of the endless triangle mentions. It just never ends. lol Yes, yes. We get it Bo. You love them both. They're your family. You can't choose. etcetera
I am also irritated that Tamsin and Bo didn't share one scene together. I'm just saying. And speaking of Tamsin....
I'm fascinated that Tamsin was apparently living her last life during the Fae Wars. That means she's a lot older than I had originally thought. And she traded regeneration for not delivering Rainer...
Trick...I have no idea what to think about him. I believe he thinks he's doing things to save Bo...but I just don't know. He seems to turn on a dime and I'm still not pleased with how he referred to Tamsin as a lowlife and spat out the word human as though Kenzi were a slug.
I'll have to rewatch this of course to see what nuances I've missed...but I don't feel that Rainer is who/what Bo believes him to be.
We know he screws with memories and we know what Tamsin said in the last episode about him being the face of evil.
