At least we don't have to worry about it being a bad picture, there is no such thing as a bad RS picture.
From these pictures I really like Kenzi's and Bo's, Dyson really looks as usual there's never much change there. I gotta say whoever did ZP's eyebrows
Oh god, the Karen Beattie mess that they pulled out of their butts I mean hats last season in a last ditch attempt to make Lauren more interesting - yet again? How many times now have they resorted that tired old trick? She was a medic in Afghanistan! She can make pipe bombs! She did the doctors without borders gig in the Congo! She has a secret comatose girlfriend stashed in a pod! She's a freedom fighter/terrorist wanted by Interpol for...protesting! Isn't she so cool???!!
Well, I read in a ZP interview recently where they were joking about her backstory (I hope she was joking) because they were talking about how she had finished med school like at 13, and estimated her IQ at 250.
Available to users only Is it too much to ask that they focus on their more interesting, emotional, and likable characters? "Why do you care so much!?"
This place seems to be going strong though! It's nice to be able to hang somewhere where it's not a cardinal sin to dislike Lauren or doccubus.
ETA: Or should I say BoRen - since it is boring as hell to me. Tamsin and Bo are so much more exciting, unpredictable and have loads of potential. BoRen feels played out, especially since we saw that given a fair shot they were incompatible and not able to fulfill each others needs (physical or emotional).
True love that will last a thousand years? Pfffft. It barely lasted a couple of months let alone years. LOL. Valkubus has so much more of a shot of lasting in the long run.

It's a standard tactic to diminish opposition. Your opinion is invalidated because you hate women, or you hate LGBT or whatever. It doesn't matter if it's true or not because once it's said, people spend so much time trying to defend what is clearly a deflection from an opposing perspective to take away from the original issue.
My issue with Bo and Lauren has nothing to do with sexuality or rights and has everything to do with what I feel is a horrible incompatibility between them on a lot of levels.
That I ship Bo with Tamsin and Tamsin is a woman is apparently not proof enough that I care about the chemistry, the character development and the drama and tension. No, clearly because I have since rejected the Bo/Lauren pairing, my true motivations must in fact be nefarious. lol "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"
In my opinion they were clinging to the fantasy/illusion of a perfect, effortless relationship and avoiding all the real issues they faced as a couple. Bo doesn't really like intellectuals or people who think they are smarter than her, Lauren feels her hardwork and dedication to a scientific field isn't being recognized, they both end up disconnecting and feeling that they're not a priority. But they gloss over that and the huge elephant in the room which is the fact that Bo is left starving after sex with Lauren and Lauren doesn't really want her to find her meals elsewhere. As much as she pretended she was okay with Bo feeding on others to supplement her diet, she really wasn't okay with it and wanted more. But she kept quiet and denied anything was wrong until she finally broke after the revelation of the Tamsin kiss and the brutal attack by the boyfriend who told her he was ruined for anything else after loving a Fae.
In contrast, Tamsin and Bo's interactions have been messy, confrontational and brutally honest at times. They confuse and challenge each other, but at least they aren't trying to sugar-coat anything. Rather than lies and evasions and obliviousness we have moments when they get under each other's skin and get to the raw, painful truth. And it doesn't destroy them, instead they come out stronger and closer because of it.
