To kick it off, Bo and Kenzi shop for supplies at a hardware store. They talk about Bo’s history - about her running away when she was 18 years old and where she grew up in a small town. They seem to be developing a true friendship. Bo spots a good-looking guy in the shop. She’s so attracted to him that she gets hungry and desires to snack on him right there. Kenzi stops her, reminding her “We don’t kill where we shop.” Very funny…
Meanwhile, a young-man searches for someone in the woods at night with green fire flares trying to scare him. The man stops at the edge of a cliff and he drops his backpack. The man is determined not to fall for any tricks of who his searching for. He finds a small sheltered tree house and, inside, a chest filled with jewels.
Back at Bo’s place Kenzi has moved in and is helping Bo decorate so it looks less like a crack den for them. Bo is upset when she learns Kenzi has been getting furniture by using a five-finger discount. Bo doesn’t want to attract attention and reminds her they need to stay under the radar so they do not get the Fae angrier. By not choosing a side, Bo has put herself in between the system between light and dark Fae. Suddenly, green fire lights up on the couch and a man appears.

The man is Will, he is a will-o’-the-wisp, and he lives in the forest outside of town. He explains to Bo that a man who has been looking for him for years has stolen his precious treasure. Although he is a member of the Light side, he has come to Bo because she is not part of the system and he has information about her parents that he thinks will motivate her to help him. He asks Bo if she has a birthmark on her left foot just above the heel, and she does. He tells her about the night 28 years ago when he saw a woman carrying a baby and running through the forest. Bo wants to know more, but he will only tell her after she has found his the man who took the treasure from him. Will found the man’s backpack and hands it over to Bo. Bo finds a gun inside the backpack and takes the pack to Dyson (Kris Holden-Reid).
Even though he’s technically not supposed to be helping her, Dyson can’t seem to help himself when she shows up at the police station. He wants to know how she got in so easily. Doesn’t he know she can get whatever she wants? All she has to do is touch someone and turn on that feminine charm. In this case all she had to do was tell the guys, who are charmed by her, that she was Dyson’s girlfriend. Dyson tells her he’s surprised to see her so soon, even though he did offer to help her if she needed it. He assumes she’s hungry and may go on a killing spree but Bo just wants help with her case for the moment. Dyson warns Bo about staying out of Fae business, but Bo is stubborn, and she threatens to ask a human officer and reveal the truth about her nature. Dyson agrees to help her, but she has to go with him to start learning the rules.
Dyson decides it’s time to take her to Trick’s bar, The Dal, for a little Fae education and also neutral ground for Light and Dark Fae. Dyson introduces her to Trick (Rick Howland), an Elder of the Fae world.
Non-locals have to declare themselves at the pub. Many at the pub are uncomfortable with Bo’s presence because her independence goes against tradition and has made a political mess between the two sides. Bo wants to know more. Trick takes her to a back room. Bo remarks that the furnishings look “early Tolkien,” and Trick replies, “Where do you think he got it from?”

Trick asks Bo for her parent’s names, but Bo only knows the name of her adoptive parents. Trick actually knows more than Bo does about her parents: they’re both Fae. Children born of only one Fae parent are born without Fae abilities. Bo also learns a little more about the century-old grudge match between the Light and Dark Fae. A war betweenthe sides would wipe out and destroy the humans as well as the Fae. Bo signs Trick’s book. He explains that they choose to stay under the radar because it’s more comfortable for them to remain a myth and also stresses that it is important for the Fae to remain hidden. All Bo’s questions are causing problems but she just wants to know why her real parents dumped her. He also tells her that he thinks her parents let humans raise her to protect her.
On her way Dyson tells Bo that the gun is registered to a Michael Connel, who lives in a trailer park. He warns her to be careful about whom she trusts. After Bo leaves, Trick and Dyson discuss Bo. Trick has his suspicions about Bo’s origins.
Bo and Kenzi go to the trailer park. Bo knocks on the door, but there is no answer. Bo opens the door slowly, hears the click of a gun, and dives out of the way to avoid the shot. There is no one at home. The gun is a makeshift alarm system.
Bo, whose hand is now bleeding, and Kenzi enter and search for clues, finding lots of books about Fae history.

They find a jewellery store circled in the yellow pages and decided to check out the store. Before they can leave, a neighbor holding a gun stands in the doorway. The lady doesn’t buy their story, so Bo approaches her and kisses her because she needs a snack.
Bo can’t stop, so Kenzi pulls Bo off. Bo whips around and chokes Kenzi, her eyes glowing. Bo comes to her senses and thanks Kenzi. The woman is fine but drained. They exit the trailer. Bo’s hand is healed after her little snack with the neighbor. Kenzi leaves back for home while Bo investigates the jewellery store.
At the jewellery store/pawn shop, the owner does not believe Bo’s story and denies having any uncut gems, so Bo threatens him with force. The owner tells her where Connel can be found in a hotel. Bo calls Kenzi so they can meet at the same hotel.
Dyson and Hale (K.C.Collins) are at the trailer park. An ambulance takes the neighbor away. Hale covered Bo’s tracks by using his siren ability on any curious people. Hale is concerned that Bo could be getting out of control.
Kenzi is also concerned about Bo losing control. Bo assures her that she is okay. Kenzi stays in the car so Bo can check out Connel room. Bo dresses as a maid to gain entry into Connel’s room. He lets her in, but he aims a gun at her. The maid had cleaned the room thirty minutes ago. Connel knew the man in the woods would send someone, so tells Bo that the man in the woods is his father. Connel informs her his mother worked at a research facility in the woods. One night, she saw the green lights and followed them. She got lost, and his father, Will found her. He wined and dined her, and she left the forest pregnant. She spent years looking for him, but he would not let her find him. Many thought her story was crazy, and Connel is upset that she died without seeing his father again and proving her story to be true. He wants to meet his father and only took the treasure to get his attention.
A man approaches Connel’s room. He takes off his head and pulls out a sword. Kenzi rushes out of the car to the room. The man bursts into the room. Connel leaves. Bo fights the mysterious attacker. Kenzi gets a mop and tosses it to Bo. The sword slices the mop in half and Bo stabs the man with both halves of the mop handle, killing him.

After Bo kills a head-less assassin sent after her client, she goes to see Dyson at The Dal. Humans are not really welcomed at the pub. It’s a problem for Bo to bring a human in the bar, but it’s not as big of a deal after Bo claims Kenzi. Bo needs help with a dead body and the three leave to the car to see the mystery dead man is in the trunk of her car. The attacker is a Dullahan, the mercenaries of the Fae world. They are almost unstoppable.
Dyson takes Bo aside to caution her again. He’s worried about her living in a world she doesn’t understand. He doesn’t want to see her get hurt or killed. Bo says getting in touch with the Light side doctor Lauren will help her take the edge off her craving. Bo needs her help to start finding a better solution to her hunger needs. He tells her there are other ways to deal with her problem but Bo doesn’t want to owe the Light Fae anything. So against his better judgement, he gives Bo the doctor’s number.
Bo and Kenzi tell Will about his son. At first he is happy, then he is worried about a human knowing about the Fae, but he comes around and is actually happy to be a father. Will is fascinated by a fire extinguisher and denies sending the Dullahan after Connel.
Bo goes to Lauren. It is dangerous for Lauren to help Bo because Bo has not picked a side. Bo doesn’t want to get anyone into trouble but she tells Lauren she needs some help. If Bo became a member of the Light side, then Lauren would not have to hide helping her. Lauren gives Bo an injection that helped an incubus, which is a male succubus. The injection helps curb the hunger, but Bo will not be able to heal unless she feeds again. And, of course, her case puts her in the line of fire. After Bo used her persuasive ability on Lauren, she becomes more than fascinated with Bo and helps her out.

Bo meets Connel at the storage facility. He shows her the treasure chest with the jewels. He aims his gun at her.
He wants the world to know the truth of what happened to his mother. He makes Bo toss him her phone, and he locks her in the storage room. She tries to relate to him about being abandoned, but he says it is not the same because she has powers and he does not.
Will and Kenzi arrive at the storage facility. Bo yells, but Connel aims the gun at them, forcing them to stay. Will tells Connel that Fae are not allowed to tell humans the truth, which is why he kept hidden from him and his mother.
Another Dullahan arrives and Will confesses to hiring them because he did not know Connel was his son. He cannot make the Dullahan stop; once the Dullahan accept a job, they don’t stop. Kenzi gets Bo out. Bo fights the Dullahan with a pipe. Kenzi go to the rescue and holds the Dullahan’s head over a fire. The Dullahan cuts Bo’s throat before Kenzi drops the head into the fire. The Dullahan dies.
Kenzi supports Bo because she is weak and bleeding from her neck. Will tells Bo her information that he knew about her before they disappear. The woman in the woods was a Fae midwife; she was running away from someone trying to hurt the baby. He does not know any names, and he does not know if her parents are alive or dead. But, He encourages her to find her parents. Will disappears, taking his son with him and his jewels.
After Bo’s injury, she tells Kenzi she does not need a doctor, she needs Dyson. In order for her to heal from a serious wound, she needs intimate contact, and Dyson is the only man she knows who has a chance of surviving a sexual encounter with her. And although she admits she hasn’t thought it through, she tells him this is the only way she can heal. And he is very willing to play doctor with her. Dyson knows what she needs and Bo tells him she’ll find someone else to help her (although she is a bit worried about killing him) so she and Dyson start kissing, and Bo’s wounds start to heal.
