Bo and Lauren are reunited thanks to The Morrigan, after not seeing each other since their encounter in front of Dr. Isaac Taft at his laboratory. They kissed passionately, delighting in their reunion, and made love while they could. Lauren suddenly realized that Bo was at the Dark Ceilidh party and asked her why she was there. Lauren is shocked to hear from Bo that she is now Dark Fae, but Bo explained that she intended to reverse her alignment.

Later, Lauren broke the news to Bo that she had chosen to join the Dark after accepting The Morrigan's offer to protect her. She told Bo that when The Una Mens started killing humans and she ran for her life, the Light Fae had not bothered to come looking for her, but the Dark had sought her out and offered her protection. With the Dark, Lauren could come and go as she pleased, on her own terms, without a binding agreement or a "dog collar", and felt free for the first time. Bo told Lauren that if she claimed her, she could be free and protected, but Lauren turned Bo down because being claimed by Bo meant being owned by her and said to Bo, "You're Fae. I'm human. So I'll always be a prisoner. The least I can do is choose my own cage." Bo walked away, feeling shock and disbelief.
