The promo is a bit campy. Bo is chemistry. That's her very essence. Remember when she first met Lauren and Lauren couldn't control herself and blurted out how gorgeous she is? Bo replies that this is a common response to her and Lauren said that this fact helped confirm her theory about Bo, that she was a succubus.
So...to show an OOC Bo washing her car in a very provocative way is overkill and actually takes away from who Bo is. She doesn't need to douse herself in water and blow bubbles to be sexy. Bo is the sexiest to me when she doesn't try, which is like most of the time, actually. She a the case study in sexual attraction.

Bo looks hot, but then she'd have chemistry with anything, including a soap bucket. Lauren and her melty ice cream? DNC. If this is all the BoRens get to tide them over this season, they're welcome to it. Note it's only an online teaser, not for mainstream TV consumption. My guess is it's an easy way to keep a certain section of the fandom from going suicidal at the possible lack of Lauren in the actual show (at least initially). Of course, this is probably just my wishful thinking running riot here.
I agree that Bo is super attractive without having to go all soft porn slo mo on us. Perhaps they thought they were being avant garde in having a woman viewing another woman as a sex object?

Headcanon: Bo was working her thang to seduce Tamsin offscreen.
Bo is trying to seduce Tamsin, because Tamsin sees Bo as more than just something to ogle over. I mean, the first time Tamsin saw Bo naked, she just smirked to herself and continued on. That is obviously what is going on here. Available to users only "Why do you care so much!?"
Honestly I wouldn't put any stock into the video as being particularly meaningful with regard to the upcoming season or frankly anything at all.
It is completely out of place in the Lost Girl universe except as a gift to certain online fans. It has nothing to do with anything at all nor does it reflect any of their character arcs.
It is at its essence a fanwank. I'm frankly glad that they didn't include Rachel in this. And heck, hopefully this is as much triangle as we see all season while Bo focuses on other more important things. "And I wonder...can you really know yourself without memory?

Showcase is just stuck with its bad decision in how they are promoting s4.
My guess, Showcase wanted to go for intrigue, mystery and hair-pulling moments for fans. Only they f***ed it up big time because they made the impossible to keep Tamsin's fate a "secret", to the point where they ignored mentioning Rachel's name in their press releases. If they wanted to keep the suspense because Tamsin drove of a cliff and we're not supposed to know if she's dead or alive, then they should have done the same for Dyson... meaning, no mention of him or Kris in anything s4 related... not to mention, they should have really done a much better job in keeping Rachel's return a secret...
Then again, I guess they weren't counting on Anna of all people to spill the beans about Rachel's return in that online radio interview around the time s3 ended.
Why Showcase stuck and is sticking with their original idea for promotion? They're cheap bastards and don't want their money to go to waste... but that's pure speculation on my part. What do I based this on? Jay's interview along with Rachel, Ksenia and Emmanuelle during MCM. I just wish the PTB in charge of Showcase realise how moronic they look by keeping everything Tamsin-free. I get it that Dyson is part of the main cast... but if they wanted to keep the suspense going then they should have also kept Dyson away. BECAUSE BOTH OF THEM DROVE OFF THAT CLIFF. NOT JUST TAMSIN.
Oh, and late, but I'm going to share my two cents over the Anna quote from that radio interview. Anna was careful enough to use the words monogamy and monogamous. She never mention love. Which can be interpreted in so many different ways.
Available to users only past history is so far-fetched that it takes a gymnast to contort logic to make it even remotely believable. Lauren or Karen was in the US military? And yet she gets vetted to become a Fae doctor? Come on, the threat of exposure to humans has to be high, but we're just supposed to believe that this ex-military, world-renowned, international terrorist/fugitive/doctor is a good person to bring into the whole Fae secret? I'm sorry but the writers really haven't thought their own back-stories through, imo. It's ridiculous and certainly doesn't make me any more interested in Ragweed who seems, these days, to have become a prop to prove that the show is not that sexist or too heteronormative in it's portrayal of romantic relationships.
Well, guess what, the show was always supposed to be sex positive. For all genders. And now we have other options: Tamsin is perfectly poised to become a love interest who can hold her own and have her own story without being just a romantic appendage (which is what Ragweed became) or some long-suffering martyr/damsel in constant distress.
