Supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk), is a succubus who feeds on the sexual energy ("chi") of humans. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door - until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them secretly and in different ways, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out this she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the human and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin...

Once again, like last season, the main drive of the series and ongoing story arc revolves around a mysterious threat that is coming to cause havoc amongst the light and dark fae.

Things are shook up a little as Hale becomes the acting Ash of the light fae, meaning that his position as cop-partner for Dyson is open. The gap is filled by dark fae, Tamsin. This makes for a little tension as dark and light are not really used to working together, so you know that the dark are going to have a few underhanded tricks up their sleeves.

In addition Kenzi, Bo's flatmate, takes more of a back seat. Her injection of light relief is a little more subtle with the end result being that the show seems a little more serious than previous seasons. A lot of the storylines focus a little more on Tamsin, which is understandable as she is the mysterious new regular cast member. And Bo and Lauren becomes more of a focus for the writers.

The bi-sexual aspects of of Bo's love life (leaning a little too heavily towards the lesbian side) seems to be purely there to ramp up the viewing figures in the young male teenage market. I have to admit that it started to become a little tiresome how much of these scenes were used as pure filler material. While there aren't that many "sex" scenes, the ones that are there just seem to go on and on.

Once again, as with the previous DVD releases, there are no extras in this collection - which may come as a disappointment to hardcore fans.

While this is an interesting show I did get to the end of this season and feel that we were no closer to the characters than at the start.
