FINALLY! It is spoiler time for the first new Moonlight episode ~ Fated to Pretend (#1x13) airing on Friday, April 25th, 2008. Getting back to our normal routine makes the return feel more real. It is wonderful to have something new to discuss! Unlike the rumored spoilers that floated around recently, this has been confirmed with several sources. Do not read if you wanna be surprised :)
Maureen, Beth's editor & boss at Buzzwire, is killed not long after confiding to Beth about a hot story to chase. Benjamin Talbot, a new ADA, is in charge of her murder investigation. Of course, Mick and Beth begin their own investigation. Talbot warns them that if any evidence is tainted it would mean that Maureen's killer would walk. Beth & Mick's snooping leads them to Bonnie. She is the daughter of a local politician on the verge of being elected mayor. She is also hiding a huge, painful secret about him. Keeping this secret is tearing her up. She tries to commit suicide, but Mick comes to her rescue with an understanding ear, and some "human speed" reflexes.
Wow! My thoughts...... Poor Beth! Another person close to her is going to die. :( Mick is obviously still human in this episode. From what I read in the script, that does not stop him from putting himself in danger to help others. We knew that he would still be our big hearted Mick whether he is human or vamp :) Mick and Beth working together again! YEA! It also appears that new ADA Talbot is not fond of Mick. Hmmmm.... a little tension added to the story. As you know, the script is subject to change.
