No one put a gun to Dyson's head and made him lie repeatedly to Bo but he still did, because Trick told him too. Im not going out on a limb by saying Trick and Dyson's relationship is more friendly then Lauren and the Ash. Lauren says in the second episode that it is dangerous for her to even be talking to Bo let alone be working with her to control her powers. Bo even says in the final that she knows what Lauren is risking for helping her, so the risk is there gun to head or no. I never said Lauren gave more for Bo in the finally you must have me mistaken fro another poster, I was merely pointing out that those who think she has done nothing for Bo are wrong. Is she on level with Dyson, Kenzi or Trick, no of course not but like I said she cant go running after Bo whenever she wants or go to the norne, but that doesn't make her contributions to Bo any less valid.
I'm going to go step by step because there are a lot of spurious arguments in that one. The first one is that I'm not reading the entire thread and I'm confused. This discussion began when one poster said that he/she didn't think that Lauren had done as much for Bo and that's why he/she is team Dyson. Another poster said yes she did, she risked her life (I'm paraphrasing, please read the entire thread for actual wording). I'm not in agreement with that argument nor the argument that she is a "slave," which I said in my post. You jumped in then. And disagreed. I asked for support for the she risked her life point, you decided I didn't want to listen to anything because I don't like Lauren. And I replied that all I wanted was something from the actual show that we've seen where Lauren's life was in danger. Note: You did not provide. Yes, Bo says I know what you are risking. But we don't know what that was, and that very ambiguous statement does not indicate that Lauren was putting her life on the line. I never said Lauren doesn't risk anything for Bo, she does break rules. I'm saying she doesn't risk all that much and there is nothing to support that she has been or will be punished for rule bending--like helping with treatments. Extrapolating that into a grand sacrifice to put Lauren on par with Dyson's and Trick's sacrifices or that Lauren is in constant fear for her life is where I disagree.
Secondly, you've decided to compare Dyson not telling Bo what he knew about her mom to Lauren sleeping with Bo on the Ash's orders. There are a lot of differences. One, Dyson owned his choice. He chose to keep Trick's secret until he started "dating" Bo. And when he declared his feelings, he forced Trick's hand. And he apologized for it and took the consequences. Was it a jerk move? Should he have told her earlier? How much did Dyson really know? Should you keep something from someone if it will only cause them pain and drive them away from the people trying to help them? Could the story have survived if Trick and Dyson had come clean in episode 3? This is all a totally different argument. Lauren betrayed Bo because she thought that following the Ash's orders/advice was in Bo's best interest, manipulating her was better than talking to her outright. And when she got caught she doesn't regret her decision, "I did nothing wrong." She doesn't own the choice and she doesn't own the consequences. Now, a number of fans say Lauren didn't have the choice (and I'm not saying you are one of them) that she had to follow the Ash's orders. I personally think that makes her more dangerous. The same way telling the hit squad that Bo and Kenzi and Hale were infected and where to find them for the greater good of the fae made Lauren dangerous. Dyson chooses his loyalties--to his King, to Bo, to the light Fae. And when push comes to shove, he places his loyalty to Bo above his king, above the light.
Thirdly, I do think that because she does less for Bo she is less of a helper than Dyson or Trick or Kenzi. She doesn't risk what they do. And in a season about sacrifice, that means something to me.
