  • The previous week's episode "Love Lasts Forever" would have made a much better finale.

    7.0
    With how great the previous week's episode "Love Lasts Forever" was, I assumed the season finale would be fantastic. However, I was dissapointed with the season finale (assuming it is the finale based on the strike). It was kind of anti-climactic. I liked the introduction of super vampire Lance. It is not like Mick getting his butt kicked is anything new. But at least Lance had an edge and seemed more imposing than other vamps. But as a whole, I found myself somewhat bored with the finale. Overall it is actually one of my least favorite episodes since the Pilot. I get why they had to do the backstory on the cure and everything. It still didn't really offer up that much excitement and suspense though. Character exploration and backstory are usually done through out the season, so that it can all come to a head in the finale. Finales are supposed to have you on the edge of your seat and leave you wanting more. While I am mildly curious what happens to Coraline, the rest of the episode didn't leave me wanting more. The ending at the funeral was also a bit anti-clamactic. It didn't really leave that much to the imagination. Mick will obviously return to being a vampire since the cure isn't permanent, and with time Beth and Mick will get back to where they used to be. I do find it interesting that Beth told Mick she didn't know what she would have said to the proposal, and then at the end of the episode she is shown wearing the ring.



    In all honesty, the previous episode "Love Lasts Forever" was fantastic from beginning to end. That actually should have served as the season finale in my opinion.moreless
  • Mortal Cure Delivers

    This episode was not intended to be the season finale but was made one when the writer's strike didn't end. This show was awesome how it showed, Mick's desire to be human while at the same time we saw Beth dealing with Josh's death. Each on their own yet still intertwined. It was awesome near the end how Mick acted the way any of us would, eating everything he could find from every delivery place. Then the way he enjoyed the sun light and the quote that their can't be love w/o mortality. Thats Good stuff.



    Also, the introduction of this mysterious sire and brother of Coralines. I never liked Coraline, cause face it I want Mick with Beth but this made her a bit more interesting and charismatic to me. I still want Beth and Mick together but at least Coraline has grown from a thorn to a very interesting plot twist. What powers does this sire have, and what will he do with this unwanted addition to his bloodline.moreless
  • Who could believe that beth found out that her dead boyfriend was going to ask her to marry him. And that mick had a helping hand from his ex wife to finally get the cure.moreless

    This was such a thrill ride in watching this episode. where can i start. beth shouldn't of ignored mick when they pasted each other the first time. she does have to understan that mick did what ever he could of done to save josh. but she was all you could make into a vampire, you could have had him live. that to me was not fair at all. she made him seem like he was the bad guy. which i don't understand why she would have wanted josh to live. because 1. josh never knew mick was a vampire.

    2. josh never liked mick in the begining. he always felt like mick was a threat,because beth was always hanging around him.

    3. if josh became a vampire he would have killed mick him self and used his vampire abilitys maybe to use them on beth to turn her or maybe sleep with her.



    anyway i did like how beth slowly seemed that she wanted to to forgive mick. i was happy that she and him were able to sit on the couch and talk about how josh was going to pop the question. i think that the reason mick was so supportive of that was because maybe he didn't want to let her know how much he loves then having her change her mind about josh.



    the old vampires are very creepy but i did like understanding about the old 16 hunderedths it was a site to see how it went for vampire back then. i thought if it was that hard to live as a vampire then how could they survive all these centuries?



    the only thing that bothered me was earlyer in the year of last year mick told us that vampires couldn't fly. well in the ending when lance steaked coraline and grabed her and looked at mick then leaving off he looked like he could fly that to me did not look like leap. so now i am thinking that if you are an older vampire you could fly but if you are less than 200 years old you can't fly. that might be a good thought. now here is what cbs sould read please i want beth and mick together but before we could see them again we need to............

    I really enjoyed this episode although the enjoyment was tempered by the fact that this was going to be the last episode until the writers strike is resolved. While the characters of Beth and Mick have evoloved quite a bit from the first few episodes there is defintely room left to grow and I can't wait to see where the characters will end up once we start getting more new episodes. This episode also very interestingly sets the stage explaining where Coraline and her "bloodline" comes from and hence where Mick comes from. Who knew that the French Revolution was really a vampire genocide! This opens the door for all kinds of interesting storylines what with the introduction of Coraline's creepy brother Lance and possibly more siblings in future!

    Hopefully after his taste of mortality Mick's "quest" for a cure will be resolved or at least but on the backburner for awhile.moreless

    I LOVED loved LOVED this episode... very good. It was a good touch the proposal Josh intended, it so hard because he was such a sweety pie, but honestly who does business with their Jeweler at a restaurant, in the evening??? Not very realistic of the writers in my opinion. Ohhh... Lance was a very good addition to this episode, and his abilities are awesome, who needs an elevator when you can simply jump off the building and do it with style!!! And his black eye, nice touch. I also liked seeing Josef, hadn't seen him in a while, wish he could have more participation in the show in general though. he is such a fun character, always trying to persuade our honorable Mick into ceding to the powers of temptation. Naughty little minx, but he knows how to enjoy life. I felt sorry for Beth, she must of felt bad for knowing Josh loved her so much he was going to propose, when she wasn't really sure of her feeling at all... however she wore the engagement ring to the funeral, so mixed feelings or not?

    Coraline resurfaces, and Mick saves her from Lance... who turns out to be her brother. But even more shocking is finding out her bloodline is royal, and date's back to Louis XVI and the French revolution.

    She shares with Mick her secret to becoming a mortal, it is temporary, but she gives him a taste of it, not exactly at the best time though. Hated seeing Mick take that beating from Lance, loved seeing him gorge on food.. But maybe now our boy can go to the beach get a tan, and possibly we can see him there, with a little less clothing, he he. Hope to see some more moonlight coming soon, i love this show!!!moreless

    • Goof: Mick and Coraline were married in 1952, yet the marriage certificate for Mick and Coraline shows a ZIP code of 90065 for Mick's address. The line on the form is titled ZIP CODE, yet ZIP codes didn't start until 1963. It should say Postal Zone, and just be 2 digits, 65.

    • What we know:
      • As vampires age their scent becomes more potent with decay.
      • There are some vamps even Josef won't mess with.
      • Coraline is a vamp again.
      • The Reign of Terror was really a vamp genocide and the guillotine was the weapon of choice since only decapitation and burning could kill vamps.
      • There is something called "the compound" which masks the traits of vampirism temporarily.

    • When Mick comes to visit Logan, he's playing the single "School's Out" by Alice Cooper on the game Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock.

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Lance: (to Mick) Welcome to the family.

    • Mick: (voiceover) I've wanted to feel human for a long time, but I forgot how painful it can be.

    • Mick: (voiceover; about Coraline) Stabbing a vamp with a wooden stake is the equivalent to putting a human in shackles. I can see the fear in her eyes; it is not the fear of the stake. But the fear of where Lance is taking her.

    • Lance: (to Coraline, about her turning Mick) You made your choices, sister. You chose to bring this ungrateful mortal into our bloodline without his consent; and without our blessing. And now you've chosen to betray us with this compound. There will be consequences.

    • Coraline: (discussing her testing the cure on other vamps) Just rogues; it helps with the research and they need to be put down anyways. So, I'm killing two bats with one stone, really.

    • Coraline: The "cure" is mortal itself, it is only temporary.

    • Mick: (voiceover; heading towards his apartment) Here we go again. (sniffs) I'm not alone. (sniffs) Second time today I've returned home and found someone waiting for me ... except this time, it's not a vamp.

    • Mick: (voiceover) As vampires age their scent becomes more potent with decay. (sniffs) I'm picking up a lot of decay.

    • Scientist: Let's be rational about this. (Lance decapitates the scientist)
      Mick: (voiceover) Clearly, Lance wasn't interested in being rational.

    • Beth: Are you human?
      Mick: For now, yeah.
      Beth: How does it feel?
      Mick: The pain... the sun... the mortality... It feels amazing.

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

    • Mick: I did everything possible to save him.
      Beth: You did everything humanly possible.
      Mick: I live every day regretting what I am. I'm not about to subject Josh or anyone else to that fate, okay?
      Beth: I'm trying really hard to understand, okay?

    • Coraline: I think Beth is starting to like me. She didn't stab me this time. (she pauses) You saved me back there.
      Mick: Yeah, well. I also burned you alive, so I guess that makes us even.

    • (about his relationship with Beth)
      Mick: (voice-over) No matter how close we start to get, there's always been this eternal wall between us. She, mortal, and me, a vampire, but with everything that's happened, maybe there's hope that things could be different.

    • (At Josh's funeral)
      Priest: We're gathered here to celebrate the life of Josh Lindsey, whose journey has come to an end. While the event that brought us all here together is nothing less than tragic, part of what makes life so invigorating is its finite nature. We're all mortal. Our time is limited. It's part of what allows us to love and hurt, and in the end, it inspires us to make the most of the time we were given.

    • Mick: (voiceover) First time in many years I could sleep in a bed ... too bad I don't have one.

    • This was the last episode completed before the Writers Strike. Had the strike not ended soon enough, this would have been the final episode of the season.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Mick goes to see a vampire named Logan -- Logan was also the first name of Jason Dohring's (Josef) character on Veronica Mars.

    • The French Revolution:

      From the history of the French Revolution we know that King Louis XV had exactly SEVEN children. But none of those children ever took the throne, one child even moved to Spain. The throne passed instead to his grandson, Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. We can assume the writers have taken liberty with French history and those seven royal children were all turned into Vampires.

    • Louis XVI:

      It is alluded that Louis XVI and some of his court were vampires and that the French Revolution and its use of the guillotine was actually the cover for a mass vampire genocide. Louis XVI was the last absolute French monarch who reigned from 1784 until his execution by guillotine in 1793. His wife, Marie Antoinette was executed ten months later. The French Revolution lasted from 1789 to 1799. The Reign of Terror lasted for nine months from September, 1793 to July, 1794. In the last six weeks of the Terror, nearly 1400 people were guillotined in Paris, alone.
