From what I've read Oroka has something to do with the transfer of energy from one being to another.

As for mojo: wiki's definition.
Mojo (African-American culture), a magical charm bag used in hoodoo.

Maybe someone's powers are getting sealed in a little magic bag?

This is what I have found:

Quote
"oroka (愚か)" means foolish, unwise, or stupid.
 
And it may seem that this episode title plays upon the word/title that is "Orokamono", which seems to mean, or translate to, "Red blinds the foolish".

As for mojo:
Quote
The word originally means a charm or a spell. But now its more commonly said meaning sex appeal or talent.

Interesting either way.

I googled Orokamono and found this-

Oroka-mono wa Aka o Kirau or
Red Blinds the Foolish

Its a manga about 2 men falling in love and was awarded the best yaoi in 2008.
The description says, its about -
Rafita is the young, rising star of the bullfighting world known as "The Red Matador." He has never
feared facing a bull since his first kill at the age of twelve. But when
he falls in love with Mauro, a butcher who rends the bulls that Rafita
kills, his confidence begins to waver.

(Whoa!, does it sound like Tamsin meeting Bo and fearing that shes falling in love?)

In the matador's dreams, Mauro (who, like a bull, is colorblind) is alternately the bull he
faces in the ring and the butcher who carves up his own skewered corpse.


Red Blinds the Foolish depicts a complex relationship and a cultural form, in a place where the sublime and the savage meet.
(mangaupdates.com)

Interesting....

SlightlyTwisted,

oroka = foolish, unwise, or stupid
mojo = charm, spell, sex appeal or talent

foolish charm? foolish charm? foolish sex appeal? foolish talent?
unwise charm? unwise spell? unwise sex appeal, unwise talent?
stupid charm? lol, stupid spell? stupid sex appeal? lol or stupid talent?

Very interesting indeed. I can certainly see that as a storyline fit for Tamsin (and Bo).

My hopes just spiked! I didn't bother looking into the manga thing, so thank you for doing that!
I was too busy trying to think of the title as "Sex appeal blinds the foolish" and such, and what that would mean lol

And now you're doing the same LOL

SlightlyTwisted, ok, if we apply this manga to LG.

Rafita he has never feared facing a bull but when he falls in love with Mauro, a butcher who rends the bulls that Rafita kills, his confidence begins to waver.

In Rafita's dreams, Mauro (who, like a bull, is colorblind) is alternately the bull he faces in the ring and the butcher who carves up his own skewered corpse.

In LG, Tamsin never cares for anyone and never fears anyone until she met Bo,  in manga, Rafita sometimes see Mauro as a bull in his dreams, bulls are color blind, they only see the red flag (the movements of the flag), in LG Bo is blind of Tamsin's feelings for her, like a bull, the bull only sees the flag and not the matador., and the matador here is Tamsin.
Bo is Mauro and the bull and the butcher.

In Rafita's dreams, Mauro is the bull, and the butcher who carves up his own skewered corpse.
In LG, Tamsin who fears no one, see's Bo as someone she fears, her weakness maybe, and probably the only person she's afraid of, unsure of herself of?. She saw Bo as the butcher to hacking her own corpse, this might mean Bos' self loathing and her desire to rid herself of her evil/monster side.

OMFG! I confused myself!

So, bottom line is -

Red Blinds the Foolish describes to a matador's work.

the Bull is the foolish one = which in LG is Bo
Red Flag = things/people that  Bo chases
Matador = is Tamsin

OMG! CAn you believe this? Bo (bull) sees the red flag, chases it, round and round, she only sees the Red, it blinds her too much that she never sees the matador holding it, which is TA DA --- TAMSIN!

OH GOD, YOU GUYS!
OMG! MY HOPES JUST SOOOOOAAAAAR!

I think, I'm gonna cry! tears

I need this season now!

Hopefully this is where the writers are going.

Get Kenzi back in the first two episodes, and then straight to Valkubus, or at least a Tamsin storyline!

Also in regards to this, I'd love to see an open and honest conversation between them so that it's all out in the open, then they can deal with it properly instead of puppy dog faces and "awkward cough" moments.

Is it fall yet?? Can has S5 now???

OH GOD, I freaking forgot that matador's kills the bulls, right?

Will the writer's pull a Jean Grey/Wolverine scenario for Bo and Tamsin?

Ok, Erase that thought!

Bo is blind and Tamsin's afraid or fears rejection SMH.

I fear that Tamsin will say the L word if she thought Bo is either dying, or shes losing Bo.
