MOONLIGHT Review – “Fleur de Lis” (1×9)

MOONLIGHT - Alex O’Loughlin as Mick St. John and Sophia Myles as Beth Turner in “Fleur de Lis”

This last episode of CBS’ MOONLIGHT “Fleur de Lis” was interesting to say the least.

The thing about loving a show is that it doesn’t prevent you from criticizing it once in while, so here are a few things that didn’t make sense to me in Moonlight‘s last episode “Fleur de Lis”:

  • At first I thought Coraline (Shannyn Sossamon) had a tattoo of a fleur de lis, but turns out she was actually branded. So now there is one thing that doesn’t make sense to me: When Mick (Alex O’Loughlin) was chasing her in the graveyard and saw she didn’t have a tattoo and then we realized that she put some make-up on it, wouldn’t he have noticed the burn anyway? I am not convinced make-up would be enough to conceal the brand.
  • Coraline is a human now?… I am a little skeptical about this storyline because it seems like the writers dug themselves a hole with that one. I am curious to find out what explanation they will come up with, but I have a feeling it’s not going to live up to my expectations. It’s probably going to be one of those “oh that’s their explanations?!” Let’s be positive for a moment and hope that the writers surprise us.
  • Mick makes out with Coraline – I’m sorry but don’t you hate her? Didn’t she ruin your life? I guess men stay men when it’s about sex, even when they’re vampires…
  • How about some positive:

  • Josef (Jason Dohring) was in the episode, that’s always a plus.
  • Beth (Sophia Myles) doing the voice over… interesting.
  • Beth stabbing Coraline – you go girl!
  • Finally I was just wondering what happened to Beth’s fiancee? Not that I like to see him, but if they’re going to cut him out at least give us a resolution between Beth and him.
  • Overall it was a good episode definitely left me wanting for more, that’s why it’s so upsetting that there will be no new episode this Friday. How will I survive without Moonlight?
