  • Mick and Beth team up to try and catch a teenage vampire who preys on innocent escorts.

    A brilliant episode that encompasses the growing bond between Beth and Mick. The plot is sound and brings the two leads together in a realistic situation. This is done in order to display their growing bond. This episode helps to integrate Beth into Mick's everyday life, and brings her into contact with Konstantin, who plays an important role in Mick's life. This adds to the potential of the growing relationship between Mick and Beth. This episode also delves more into the fears on vampires. Through the anguish of the teenage vampire in his inabilty to ever 'grow up' and Mick feeling his pain we are able to see in more intricate detail the way Mick's mind works. His hopes and fears. I believe this to be a great episode for character growth. Especially as we see Beth acknowledge the special and growing bond between Mick and herself.moreless
  • A vampire stuck looking young forever preys on escorts.

    10
    Mick is asked to look for a missing girl, and ends up finding her dead room mate first. Beth is on the case of the dead room mate, and it appears that she was attacked by a vampire. Of course Mick is trying to avoid Beth because of things that happened in the previous episode but it seems as if they are pulled together by some invisible source. They end up working the case together, as they hunt down their vicious vampire. It was a very good episode, one that will leave you wanting more Moonlight the moment it is over.moreless

    i was so happy and sad at the same time when i realized that cbs isn't going to allow any more renus of moonlight to be shown i hope it more will show. anyway mick keeps on voiding beth because he almost died and she made sure that didn't happen so she allowed him to suck on her blood. now beth is the one that keeps on calling him and calling him he won't allow him self to answer and say a hello. so if he won't say hello fate comes to the resuce and make them meet each other in down town l.a. then again. beth wonders why do they keep meeting each other mick acts like he doesn't know but beth doesn't understand why he feels so unsure around and has him work with her to find the missing escort so in that way mick can find the teen vampire who kills the escorts. the best part that i thought was really cool is in this episode josef finally meets beth for the first time. i loved who he kept his eyes right on her but you can also tell who protective mcik is on beth. you can tell that when mick held on to beth he might have told josef his best friend to back off that is so hot of beth and very kind. the last 2 minutes were the most hottest and sexy 2 minutes i ever saw mick and beth first kiss you can tell beth might have been in love with mick cause she smacked 2 kisses on him, you can just tell how happy mick was i am going to miss watching his smiles i hope their will be more episodes.

    so this is what i shall say.............

  • Mick and Beth "bump" into each other again when trying to track a murdering 200-year old vampire stuck in his teens. Another fantastic episode!

    9.0
    This show just keeps getting better and better every week. It is fast becoming my guilty pleasure since I'm normally not interested in fantasy and/or vampire themed productions. But Moonlight has been very addictive so far! This week, I didn't dig the case nearly as much as I digged the scenes between Beth and Mick. How much more likeable can this almost-couple get? Mick does everything to avoid Beth but fate doesn't seem to allow him. "You can run but you can't hide." Very true! The conversation about vampires and sex was amazing, especially the "Your parents never told you?" line from Mick. All the romantic tension between Mick and Beth this episode would've killed me if it didn't result in something. And it did! Beth kissed a puzzled and enormously cute Mick in the parking lot and then scurried off. Sigh... More please!moreless
  • Very cool eppy

    What an awesome episode. I did feel empathy for the Vampire Boy. I mean, to be stuck at that awkward age for all those years would be horrid. I think the show is doing a fine job with the sexual tension between Beth and Mick. I love all the characters in this show, Mick and Josef being my two favorites. I hope we get to see more of Josef and get to delve into his past a little bit. I'd like a few more flashbacks of Mick as well. That's always fun!!! This was an excellent episode, this show is definately not disappointing, can't wait for next week!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • In the scene where Beth is sitting at the computer, as Marissa walks up to her it can clearly be seen that she's just touching the keys of the keyboard, not actually pressing them down to type something.

    • Goof: When going to the apartment of the teenage vampire, Mick and Beth walk up the sidewalk, coming from the right. Mick's car cannot be seen behind them. When they leave, they walk in the opposite direction, where Mick's car is parked. Why would they have been coming from the opposite direction on their way in?

    • While David is sitting in front of the laptop at the beginning scanning through escorts the names are going by too fast to read, but if you slow the shot down you will see that almost all of the women have the same name: "Jen"

    • In the scene at the morgue where Beth is confronting Mick her posture goes from leaning against the wall to standing upright as the cameras switch several times.

    • Whenever Mick mentioned what he learned in his 85 years of being a vampire, the number is displayed in closed captioning as 89 years. This happens twice in this episode.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Beth: (about pretending to be Jazzmyn) What am I supposed to say? I've never spoken to a serial killer before.
      Josef: Well, you know. Be polite. Please, thank you.

    • Mick: (voice over) Maybe it's the sum of a million coincidences we don't quite control that brings us to a particular place at a particular time, or maybe it's the choices we make, the actions we take. If there's one thing I've learned in 85 years, it's that what we want doesn't always matter. (Mick and Beth kiss.) What we want doesn't always matter, but then again, sometimes it's all that does.

    • Beth: So your friends are they .. ahm
      Mick: What?
      Beth: You know...
      Mick: Vampires? You can't tell, can you? Scary.

    • Beth: So, what are you doing here?
      Mick: Same. Blood ... work. I-I-I have to get some blood work done.

    • Mick: He's a kid, maybe 16 years old.
      Beth: Sixteen?
      Mick: Well, going on 200. I saw a picture.
      Beth: Ugh, awkward age.

    • Josef: So your reporter friend. Uh, what's her name?
      Mick: You know her name.
      Josef: Yeah, but... right. So how's it going since, uh, happy hour?

    • Josh: Or better yet come by tomorrow night. We're having a few friends over to celebrate one year together.
      Beth: Oh, I don't think... Mick doesn't wanna...
      Mick: No I would, want to, uh, but I can't.

    • Beth: You know, I left you a message.
      Mick: (voice over) Actually, she left four (voice over ends). I must have missed that somehow.

    • Beth: So how does it work, anyway?
      Mick: What?
      Beth: Just, you know, the sex thing.
      Mick: Your parents never told you?

    • Beth: Okay, I'm just gonna say it. Don't you think it's a little weird us running into each other here?
      Mick: Not really. What do you mean?
      Beth: I mean you've been avoiding me.
      Mick: No, I haven't.
      Beth: Yes, you have. Ever since, you know, the desert, you've been dodging my calls, avoiding me. And then we run into each other twice. First downtown and now here. Following two completely different paths, we end up in the same place. Don't you think that's a little strange?
      Mick: You know what? I'm not big on categorizing things into strange and not.
      Beth: Wow. Vampires make really bad liars. Go on, admit it.
      Mick: I just don't think we need to make this into a big deal.
      Beth: It is a big deal. I fed you! You were dying out there and I brought you back to life with my blood. With my blood, Mick!

    • Mick: (voice over) If I've learned anything in 85 years it's that what we want, doesn't really matter. You can want to get from here to there. You can want to be on time. You can want to avoid someone for their own good, say because you drank their blood out in the desert. But if the universe wants something different, you can run but you can't hide. (runs into Beth and Josh)
