Video ~ SPOILER ~ Mick's DNA results scene from What's Left Behind ~ episode #1x15

Spoiler Alert! Scene from Moonlight's What's Left Behind episode (#1x15)

This video is of the scene where Mick St John gets the DNA results to find out if he has a son or not. Alex O'Loughlin is so good in this clip. You feel the sadness, but also the happiness he has for his best friend.

"I didn't know how much I wanted a family until I almost had one."

Spoilers ~ Recap of Moonlight's What's Left Behind episode (#1x15)

SPOILER ALERT! My recap of Moonlight's What's Left Behind episode (#1x15)

I feel so sad for our boys.

This was a serious episode. A few light moments here and there, mostly courtesy of Josef as usual. Making Mick go couch shopping at 4 am. I snorted out loud when Mick asked if he should check the now infamous tar pits for Josef's fired designers.

When the detective tried to kick Mick out of the crime scene, Talbot stood up for him by saying all help is needed when a child is missing. I think he wants to be around Mick to check him out up close, since he is obviously investigating him.

Is that also why he offered Beth the job as a civilian investigator?

They brought back Erika Ringor as Detective Theresa Novak. Remember her from Fever (episode #1x04)? I like it when tv programs bring back characters. It adds a bit of realism.

Little Jacob Fordham is kidnapped. Bad memories for Beth. This also brings up bad memories for Mick.... in more ways than one. Not only reminding him of Beth's kidnapping, but of his history with the Fordham family.

Loved when Mick vamped & threatened the kid blood drinking Vampire, Leo. Dangerous! and sexy ;>

Of course, we already knew that Mick had been a medic in WWII. Tonight, we learned that his unit was stationed in Italy during the late summer of 1944.

Mick's best friend, Ray, is thought to be killed in action. The last thing he asked Mick to do was tell his wife, Lila, that he loved her and to take care of her. He tries to do just that. Both are grieving for Ray. They have that in common, plus years of close friendship. They end up taking comfort with each other, which often happens in these situations. However, Ray was not dead. When he returns, Mick simply disappeared from their lives. Can you imagine the guilt he must have felt? Still feels! We know how our Mick takes everything to heart.

This leads Mick to think that Jacob could be his grandson, and that the distraught father, Robert, may be his son.

I thought Beth was going to cry as Mick explained the story to her, especially when he admitted to loving Lila.

"See, I've sired plenty of vamps in my day, but no rugrats." One of Josef's only regrets about his Vampire life is that he can never have children. The look on Jason's face said it all. He can go from humor to a serious line like that with ease. And back to humor when he realizes Beth is standing there having overheard him say that Vampires can't have kids. "Hi Beth. Beth is here" Ooopppsss!

I agree with Beth. It is too early for having the kiddos conversation. They've only had one passionate kiss for goodness sake. Wow... that look Mick gives Beth when she says "We haven't even slept with each other yet. It may not be any good." He is too hot! If I were her.....

Beth had to know that Mick was not going to wait for the warrant before rushing to save Jacob.

Mick's eyes glowing in the dark! Super cool!

The DNA test proves that Robert is not Mick's son. "I didn't know how much I wanted a family until I almost had one." Alex's expression and voice did me in.

As I said at the beginning of this recap, I feel sad for Mick & Josef. Even though they could adopt sweet babies, then what would happen? Watch their children grow old and die? Turn them into vamps too? *sigh*

Spoiler ~ my recap of Moonlight's Click episode (#1x14)

SPOILER ALERT! My recap of Moonlight's Click episode (#1x14)

I was hoping that Mick's temporary humanity would give him a new appreciation for his Vampire life & power. He seems to be embracing life period. Putting himself out there, as he says. Mick has a facebook page!?!?

Was it just me, or did Alex seem extra magnetic last tonight?

Mick's mantra of "you can't die" while enduring Tierney's driving made me bust out laughing.

After all this time of Mick and Beth's romance being longing glances and hinted conversation, I'm still getting used to the openly dating thing.

Tension in those stares between ADA Talbot & Mick. Alpha males guarding their territory.

More Josef and Mick scenes please! Love the banter between our boys.... especially the scene when Mick goes to Josef's office and teasingly called him dad. "Step-sire" Too funny!

Not surprised that our adorable Josef dated Jean Harlow and apparently Garbo.

We were correct in our spoiler speculation that "Ann Booker" was the writer's code for Beth.

Speaking of the spoilers...... the scene where Mick & Beth run into each other on the Queen Mary was changed. The dialogue of "we had something once but it's over.... it's complicated" became "I think we're dating.... it's complicated." Beth's nod to meet outside was gone, etc.

As I wrote before when I posted a spoiler video for Click, the debate that has been churning over Mick's line in the pilot episode, "60 years is a long time to deny yourself the touch of another" is answered. Mick makes it very clear to Beth ( and us ) that he has not had sex with a human since becoming a Vampire... and that he has slept with a vamp.... vamps?

Mick leaning in for a kiss was soooo sexy, even tho it was interrupted.

Tierney didn't last very long.

Poor Mick ~ having someone murdered on his watch :(

A sleep over.... but not quite how Mick & Beth pictured her spending the night at his place.

Moonlight is about vamps who walk among us. We saw that in action with the too little tabloid photographers. Giggled when Mick said "The camera... lost boy!" A fave film of mine, and Alex too.

The actor playing Dean Foster did a great job of making him a scummy paparazzi for us to hate.

When he caught the killer, Mick had to control himself. He was on the verge of going Vampire on that guy. If I say that I really wanted Mick to vamp out, does that make me a bad person? ;>

I've always wondered how Mick was able to stay in LA this entire time without being discovered. When Beth asks what would happen to a vamp if outed, you see her heart sinking as Mick says it would require moving, changing identities & so on.

Of course, I knew Beth would go to Josef when Dean tried to blackmail her with his Mick photos & threatened to further investigate. And.... we all knew that Josef would take care of the problem! One of the reasons that I love him. Beth was well aware of what would happen if she went to Josef, but she stepped up to protect Mick.

Now, Josef & Beth have a shared secret that they are keeping from Mick.

Continuing the protection by quitting her BuzzWire job. She wouldn't have stayed there anyway with the new editor's trashy, unethical approach to journalism. Not that you can call what he does journalism.

Mick ~ "I suppose we're all Vampires in one form or another."

Totally not surprised that Talbot is investigating Mick.

Ooooooo..... before I forget.... Click on the photograph above of the delicious Alex O'Loughlin for a larger version of the image.

Our first look at Alex O'Loughlin working on the set of his new movie, The Back Up Plan. shot & posted this behind the scenes video. The footage shows Alex & Jennifer Lopez working on a moment for the film. They are shooting in Pasadena, CA. We've always heard such great things from those who have been around Alex. Check out how friendly and nice he is to the guy touching up Jennifer's hair around the 2:25 mark on the clip.

Will Three Rivers be on the CBS Fall television schedule?

A week from today! CBS Network will hold its upfront presentation on Wednesday, May 20th, 2009. That is when we should find out if Alex O'Loughlin's new television series ~ Three Rivers ~ will be picked up for the Fall schedule. *fingers crossed*

Nikki Finke @ Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting "I also hear that MIAMI TRAUMA and THREE RIVERS are still in skintight competition at CBS for the medical show Les Moonves wants." And.......

MIAMI TRAUMA (Warner Bros/CBS-Paramount) is Jerry Bruckheimer's medical show, and I'm told Les wants a medical show. But this may not be the one because sources say it was a "soft screening" and is in competition with Three Rivers.

THREE RIVERS (CBS-Paramount/Deuce Three) is looking likely to be the medical drama Les wants (and wants more than rival Miami Trauma). CBS liked what they saw. And the network loves star Alex O'Loughlin. Not only might he bring his small but rabid Moonlight fanbase, but he recently starred in a Criminal Minds sweeps episode. And I hear CBS Films just put him in the feature film Plan B opposite Jennifer Lopez. Insiders are betting this show with a 24 splitscreen feel will go.

Alex O'Loughlin talks with Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly's Pop Watch Blog has a fun interview with Alex O'Loughlin. I especially giggled at the discussion of possible sensual moments in his new show, Three Rivers.... "I told them I'm happy to do whatever sex scenes they want. Either with actors or by myself." Alex has such a wonderful sense of humor.

Alex O'Loughlin: Catching up with the 'Moonlight' star on his 'Criminal Minds' guest spot and more!
EW ~ PopWatch Blog ~ by Mandi Bierly

We know. You're not used to seeing Moonlight's Alex O'Loughlin looking like a serial killer with OCD. (You prefer to remember him the way we do: either holding a "Hi Slezak!" sign at 2008's New York Comic Con or shirtless.) But it's only for a role. O'Loughlin guest stars on tonight's episode of Criminal Minds (CBS, 9 p.m. ET) as what fans of the series know as the Unsub, or unidentified subject. He plays a man who sends a video of one of his murders to the BAU team, hoping that they'll be able to end the bloody spree that he himself cannot stop. We phoned O'Loughlin for a quick chat about the part, his CBS drama pilot Three Rivers, and the romantic comedy he begins shooting next month with Jennifer Lopez, The Back-Up Plan.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY : We can't actually go further into your character on Criminal Minds without giving the twist away, but tell us how the part came to you.

ALEX O'LOUGHLIN : The genius writer and friend of mine Simon Mirren [one of the show's co-executive producers] offered it to me. I'm eating an apple while we talk. Is that okay?

EW : That is fine, yes.

Alex O'Loughlin : Thank you. I read it and was like, "Absolutely." It's not often that I get to play character roles. You kinda leave drama school and you head off into a direction and that's the direction you take. You're either on the character actor route or the leading man route. It was a delight for me to play a role like this.

EW : You are the leading man in the CBS pilot Three Rivers. [We'll know May 20, when CBS announces its fall schedule, if it gets picked up for next season.]

Alex O'Loughlin : I play a cardiothoracic surgeon called Andy Yablonski, who's based on a real-life surgeon called "Gonzo" Gonzales-Stawinski who's become a wonderful friend of mine. He's a cardiothoracic surgeon up at the Cleveland Heart Clinic, which I spent a bunch of time at in my preparation for the role. It's a fantastic script that's really grownup and smart and important. It tells the story of organ transplants from three perspectives: The organ, the recipient, and -- the organ? [Laughs] It tells it from the organ's perspective. From the recipient, the donor, and the surgical team.

EW : I read that Andy is separated from his wife and lives in a motel near the hospital. Is that right?

Alex O'Loughlin : Yeah, connected next to the hospital, actually. So he can live his job even more than he usually does.

EW : The word motel always sounds kinda seedy to me, so I thought maybe we'd get to see him taking advantage of that proximity. But if he's a workaholic.... Are we not gonna see sex scenes is basically what I'm asking you.

Alex O'Loughlin : Ohmygod. No, I told them I'm happy to do whatever sex scenes they want. Either with actors or by myself. So they're getting back to me on that. That may or may not be a reason why they pick up the show. "He's obsessed with sex. No, we're not gonna pick the show up. Moonlight f---ed with him. He's kinda all weird now."

EW : You have a holding deal with CBS, so I'm assuming you had a few pilots to choose from. Why this one?

Alex O'Loughlin : It's a well-written piece that I foresee a longevity with that I didn't with the other pilots that I read. I see three years ahead, you know what I mean? I see the fifth season. I see where the characters are going to go, the potential. I loved the character. I've sat in on five open-heart surgeries now. I realized how important a story like this was before I did that stuff, but the deeper I've gone into it, the more mesmerized I am.

EW : And what's Andy's personality like?

Alex O'Loughlin : He's a bit cheeky, too. He's like a lovable scallywag.

EW : You're about to start filming the movie The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez. Tell us about that one.

Alex O'Loughlin : It's a movie about a girl who is heading toward her 40th birthday, she hasn't met The One, she really wants a baby, and so she goes and gets artificially inseminated. Right after she does this, she bumps into this guy called Stan. I play Stan. She falls in love with him. He falls in love with her. She tells him about the pregnancy after they've fallen in love and he flips out. Then it's about him coming to terms with the fact that if he loves her, he loves all of her, and working out how he's gonna deal with it. It's very funny. It's very moving. It's a terrific little film.

EW : You've met Jennifer already, obviously. How's the chemistry?

Alex O'Loughlin : The chemistry is fine. I think we're gonna be pals. You know when you sit in a room with someone and you kinda can't talk to them, or you sit in a room and you're easy with someone -- we're easy together. So I think it's gonna work. I think we're gonna be really good onscreen together. Her husband is wonderful. I met Marc and the kids, and they're great. They're a really lovely unit.

EW : You also costar in the thriller Whiteout coming out this fall. [Kate Beckinsale plays a U.S. Marshal in Antarctica in the graphic novel adaptation.]

Alex O'Loughlin : I can't remember how many years ago I shot that. I can't remember what I did in it. [Laughs] No, that's not true. I'm looking forward to seeing that. They've been cutting it for so long. That's Kate's film though. Essentially, I play the villain in that as well. A rogue-ish, rugged, Australian pilot who's a bit of a smartass. It's like Wow, what a stretch.

SPOILER Video ~ MickBeth's rooftop date and kiss in Fated to Pretend (episode #1x13)


This video shows the incredible final scene from Moonlight's Fated to Pretend episode (#1x13). Mick St
John and Beth Turner's amazingly romantic rooftop picnic date and kiss! I still can't believe she left.... he would have had to kick me off that roof to get rid of me *grin* The song used is Lucky by Bif Naked.

SPOILER Video ~ Josef turning Mick scene from Fated to Pretend (episode #1x13)


This video shows the scene of Josef Kostan turning Mick St John back into a Vampire in Moonlight's Fated to Pretend episode (#1x13). If you haven't seen the episode & don't want to be spoiled, do not watch this video!

Even after watching this scene over & over, I still get chills. It is emotional, sensual & unforgettable. Alex O'Loughlin & Jason Dohring are simply stunning. Do you realize this scene is only about 2 minutes long? They made the most of every second. Mick calling Josef "brother." We see what a powerful friendship they share. Alex allows that single tear to roll down his cheek. Jason shows the anxiety Josef feels in those first moments of waiting for Mick to accept his blood. You know he was thinking of his tragic attempt at turning Sleeping Beauty. Jason said the music was incredible in this scene, & he is so right. It is also an erotic scene. Hot! How did they pack so much into that small amount of time!?

I could write on & on, so I must restrain myself.

Behind the scenes photo wallpaper of Sophia Myles as Beth Turner

Reposting a lovely photo wallpaper of our Beth Turner. It is a great behind the scenes picture showing Sophia Myles getting a make-up retouch... for the doctor's office scene in Moonlight's Fated to Pretend episode (#1x13).

My recap of Moonlight's Fated to Pretend (episode #1x13)

SPOILER ALERT! This is my little recap of thoughts from tonight's Fated to Pretend (episode #1x13).

We have all discussed Beth wearing Josh's engagement ring to his funeral, her guilt & blaming Mick. Glad they addressed those issues at the beginning of this episode. Beth apologizes to Mick, which she should. She also says what we all did.... Josh wouldn't have wanted to be turned. She tells Mick she wouldn't have accepted Josh's marriage proposal because "there is someone else... and has been for a while." Hmmmmmm.... wonder who she means *grin*

Great humor tonight..... especially from our Josef and Logan. Jason Dohring & David Blue know how to put just the right spin on their lines.

As Beth pointed out, Mick was also much happier and showing off more of his sense of humor. Alex O'Loughlin is such a talented actor. Look at how he shared with us the difference between Vampire Mick and human Mick. Even his voiceover work was different. A lesser actor would not be up to the task.

Mick admits to Josef that he is in love with Beth. Josef is completely unsurprised. But.... Mick doesn't tell Beth that he loves her.

Poor Mo! And poor Beth. Yet another person close to her dies.

Eric Winter makes his entrance as the new ADA Benjamin Talbot. He is much, much hotter than Josh. We knew he wasn't gonna like Mick. You could feel the tension in the air.

Guillermo wasn't to thrilled about being stuck with that A+ he stocks up on for Mick. Jacob Vargas had much more of a presence in tonight's episode. He made the most of it ~ "starts with a V... you used to be one"

Loved the banter between Mick and Beth. When they broke into Maureen's place.... Beth ~ "Breaking and entering was more fun when you were a Vampire." I agree with her about the "sexy Vampire jumping thing."

The Logan scenes were soooooo funny! Mick and Beth walk in with the cat.... Logan ~ "Since you brought lunch." Mick figures out the key to Mo's encription is the cat's name, Travis.... Logan ~ "We shall never speak of this again."

Josef is part of a story Mo was working on due to a charity scam. Mick ~ "Josef probably murders ever day." *grin* Then, when they confront Josef he mentions his bodies ending up in the tar pits. I like the way he handles business! Mick wants to speak to the pr man in charge of the charity. Josef ~ "remember the tar pits" hahahahaha......

Or, when Josef says it's like "role playing without the leather."

I could quote practically the entire episode. Must stop!

Mick doesn't stop stepping up to save people just because he is human.... and could die himself. Look at him on that roof with Bonnie. He finds it exhilarating! Beth has a great line there ~ "I'm not used to worrying about you like this."

Bad vamp, Dr Anders, obviously has the ability to tell blood types. Comes in handy for his little biz of selling special ones. Incredibly icky when he licks Beth. Ewwwwww! Since Mick tasted her blood before but didn't realize her rare blood type, it seems that Moonlight vamps can have different powers. That is common in most vamp lore.

I completely understand why Jason Dohring was emotional for several hours after the scene where Josef turns Mick. Very well done! Jason & Alex do amazing work together. Vamping out to show his currently human friend Mick that he can not hope to take on a Vampire. The expression Alex gave when Mick admits to himself that he has to be a vamp to save Beth was heartbreakingly perfect. Who didn't get teary eyed during that scene as Josef says he would be taking something from Mick that he had always wanted... his returned humanity. "Forgive me!" He has heard for YEARS how much Mick hates being a vamp. Yet he has to be the one to take that away from his friend. At least, Mick makes the choice himself this time. I'm sure Josef will take comfort in that. As for the actual turning..... *swoon* Sensual does not even begin to cover it! If you didn't dream of being turned before, this scene surely changed your mind. I could not breath! HOT!

Mick willingly became a Vampire this time.... to save "my Beth."

LOVED the fight scene! My action girl heart is still beating fast over that. Our first time seeing Josef vamp out and fight. Plus, Mick relishing his powers. "It is SO on!"

Even tho Talbot was blindfolded, he could still hear the hissing and fighting going on around him. He knows that Mick came to their rescue. The same Mick that he thought was dead. You know he is not going to let this go.

Our final scene! I will say it again..... Moonlight gives its fans the best last act of any television show out there! Mick and Beth still had their rooftop picnic date despite him being a vamp again. He couldn't join her in eating, but did drink the wine. I'm glad Beth stood up for herself & their possible relationship.

That kiss.... Can you imagine Mick grabbing you, spinning you around and kissing you like that?! What am I saying, of course you can *wink* How romantic and sexy!

If I were Beth, there is no way NO WAY you could have gotten me to leave Mick like that.

Beth ~ "You may have forever, but I don't."

My recap of Moonlight's The Mortal Cure episode (#1x12)

Recap of SciFi's rebroadcast of Moonlight's The Mortal Cure (episode #1x12).


Mick still tries to reach out to Beth. He is so sweet. I know she is grieving and feeling guilty because of her emotional affair with Mick, but I hated how cold she was to his attempt. "You did everything humanly possible."

I think Beth was quick to jump to the conclusion that Josh was having an affair with Celeste because it would assuage her own guilt. This is also an example of the story changing from the spoilers that come out. Originally, Celeste was written to be helping Josh investigate Mick and Vampyres. In the finished product, she morphed into his jeweler. Side note ~ did anyone else think that was pretty personal service? My jeweler doesn't meet me for dinner.

Laughed when Coraline's friend, Cynthia, and Mick are sniffing each other through the hotel room door.

Josef is back ~ and he forgot his shirt! YEA! Mmmmmm.... All the boys on Moonlight are so hunky. Josef was just trying to help Mick relieve some stress by offering him a willing freshie massage. :>

Beth finally comes to Mick. How tender did he sound when he said "Come here" to her. As usual, Alex O'Loughlin conveys so much with just two words, his expression and body language. No matter how Beth treated him or made him feel, he is instantly there for her.

She doesn't know what her answer would have been to Josh asking her to marry him. Accepting that may have been what allowed her to seek out Mick.

Mick wants to be human so badly. The look of hope & excitement on his face when Coraline gives him the "cure." We knew he hated being a vamp, but that look really brought it home. Human again, if only for a brief time, after 55 years. Can't even imagine!

I also laughed at the way Alex says his line "you ate food!" to Coraline.

Mick ~ You once told me you were giving me the greatest gift by turning me" Coraline ~ "That was a long time ago, Mick"
Mick ~ "Yea, but what's happened? Why this sudden interest in becoming mortal?"
Coraline ~ "I wanted to feel life again. And, maybe love can't exist without mortality."

Jason Butler Harner was scary good as Lance. I wouldn't want to be on his bad side!

Lance's hand immediately healed when burned. As I wrote previously, I think we now know how Coraline survived the fire.

"I think Beth is starting to like me. She didn't stab me this time" ~ Coraline. Hahaha.....

So, the Reign of Terror was actually a Vampire genocide. They definitely do not tell you everything in history books. We learn that the cure is indeed temporary and is linked to the French Revolution. The French royal family were all Vampires. During the Reign of Terror, they used the cure to pass as human & avoid being killed.

Coraline turned Mick without permission and then stole the "cure" for him ~ both brought on the family wrath. Lance is so invincible & he is the errand boy for whoever he's taking her to ~ yikes! I would not want to be Coraline. She surrendered to this scary fate in exchange for Lance not killing Mick.

While watching this, I wondered if a future episode might revolve around Mick trying to rescue Coraline.

A bit about Mick's fight scenes......... When Lance first corners Coraline at the lab, Mick is looking on. Instead of allowing Coraline to be taken, Mick intervenes... and is beaten badly by the much older & more powerful vamp. Later, he comes to her rescue again by fighting Lance WHILE HE IS HUMAN. Not good for our Mick. :( It is obvious that he is on the verge of being killed. Equally obvious is the fact that he knew he couldn't hope to defeat Lance as a mortal. However, Mick is not the kind of man who can stand by and watch even tho the odds are completely against him. I loved how he still staked Lance's sidekick with flair as a human!

Mick pigging out was priceless! Exactly what I would do in his place :) FOOD!

Why is Beth wearing Josh's engagement ring? Hopefully, it was just a sign of respect. If I were her, I would return it to his family since it was his grandmother's ring.

"Are you human?" Even with the pain, it feels amazing to Mick.

Mick tells Beth Coraline is gone ~ that it is over ~ and was never meant to be. Beth says she kinda knows what he means. Hmmmmm....

Alex O'Loughlin apologizes for missing BBM Convention

Alex O'Loughlin has written another sweet message for us fans. Always the gentleman, he takes the opportunity to apologize to fans who had hoped to see him at the Breakout Before Moonlight/Star Fury convention (Heathrow, London England). However, don't forget that our marvelous Jason Dohring ~ aka Josef ~ is still scheduled to be there at the moment.

May '09

Hey everybody!

Thought I would drop you all a quick line and let you know that things are going really well.

I finished Three Rivers and landed the role in Jennifer Lopez' new film The Back Up Plan, which I have been madly working on preparing since I got back from Pittsburgh.

It is very exciting news about this film, and I think it will be a really good thing for me but it does mean I am going to have to miss out on other things. One of these being the Star Fury event in London which I was looking forward to very much.

I really wanted to reach out to anyone who was going to come and say hello to me there.

I know that when you buy your tickets they tell you we (the actors) may not be there if we get a job, but I'm sorry all the same. I wanted to be there too but this film I could not pass up. I hope you guys understand.

Also, thank you so much to all the people who tuned into my Criminal Minds episode the other night. It was a fun show to be a part of.

All my love to you all.
Alex O'Loughlin
