I was on the edge of my seat as soon as I heard Beth doing the voice over. That signaled right away that this episode was different. Beth sounded different. We have watched her changes and growth every week. Mick is changing her life.... and vice versa.
We learned that Coraline became a Vampire in the 1700's, when she was a courtesan to the French court. Her Fleur De Lis brand was given to mark her as a courtesan. A "hooker" as jealous Beth snapped.
That jealousy was on full display tonight. It fueled Beth's researching Morgan, along with hate, fear and desire for revenge. Who can blame her for wanting vengeance on the person who snatched her from the safety of home & "terrorized" her. However...... would she have ever met Mick otherwise?? Hmmmmmmmmm.....
It was Beth's idea for Mick to turn on his charm, that no girl can resist according to her (she would know *wink*), to keep Morgan busy while she snooped.
We knew that Mick was going to apologize to Morgan for the cemetary scene last week. The scene at the restaurant was great! She made him squirm. "You're buying, right?"
Shannyn is fantastic as Coraline. I know many of you do not like her ~ words like hate and evil were used often. I like her! Shannyn and Alex have great chemistry together. I would not respect Mick if he did not have feelings for the woman he married and had been on/off with for 33 years. Conflicted though they may be. Remember when the teenage vamp (Arrested Development episode #1x05) asked Mick if he had ever loved someone so much he would do anything for her. Mick closed his eyes and thought of Coraline. Then, opened them and said yes.
I have a severe shoe addiction myself so I loved Beth's shoe envy when digging around at Morgan/Coraline's loft. :)
We could have been shown generic medicine bottles to establish Morgan's humaness. Instead, they made sure we could read the label for her Naproxen perscription. Will that come up in the future? Is it part of the "cure?" A bit about Naproxen.... It is an anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medicine, often used to relieve pain ~ headaches, arthritis, backaches, menstral cramps, etc. Also, as a BLOOD thinner. Hmmm......
I knew Mick would smell Beth when he and Morgan returned to her home.
When Mick asked Morgaline what she thought his type was and she said "that would be me," I gasped out loud. She is so bold. Love the bad girls!
Josef sighting! I was happy to see that Beth went to him for answers. How great was it when everyone scattered at the snap of his fingers?!?
We learned that Josef met Coraline in New York ~ when Lincoln was president. When he said in The Ringer (episode # 1x07) that he knew her long before Mick, he really meant it.
Loved it when Mick jumped instead of using the elevator. Then, ran and leapt sky high to save Morgan. I get a thrill any time he uses his vamp powers. Yea!
Another hot shower scene! Who does not want a man to look at them the way Mick looked at Morgan/Coraline?!??!! Oooooooo my.....
Is there a permanent cure for Vampirism? Only temporary? Mick seemed like his human self ~ so hopeful ~ when he realizes that Coraline found a "cure" for what he considers a curse.
Beth's face when she saw Coraline on Mick's stairs, WEARING his shirt, wet from the shower was so hurt. After reliving the nightmare of her kidnapping which she had kept buried for years, she goes to her protector's home and thinks he has taken up with her enemy. I felt so bad for her.
My heart went out to Mick. He knows that if Coraline dies he will never find the cure. Would he actually take it? What would Moonlight be like with a human Mick?!?
How are they gonna explain Coraline's stake... er... I mean... stab wound to the hospital staff?!!!?? Accidental? Self inflicted? Ha!
Getting stabbed like that is a pretty serious wound for a human. If Coraline is dying, will Mick turn her to save her & to get the "cure" information? That would be great role reversal for him to make her a Vampire. However, unlike our Mick, Coraline enjoyed being a vamp.
I love that Moonlight gives us sooooooo much to think and speculate about with every episode!
