It's entirely appropriate that this episode is entitled Sonata, because up until this point, Beth has been under the belief that her relationship with Mick has been just that: a fantasy. However, a murder that threatens to expose the Vampire community cause the facts of dating a vampire to intrude on Beth's life. And soon, her fantasy world comes to a halt.
This week gave us an answer to the question of Beth's job search, as well as a look into Mick's pre-Coraline past and gave the couple a few questions to chew on about the meaning of family. All while they thwarted a serial killer/kidnapper.
So before the strike lines formed up, the creators of Moonlight were determined to send their show into hiatus with a bang. Accordingly, the plot was chock full of action, suspense, twists and turns.
I'd like to have my teeth back, if you can find them. It seems only fair, since you kicked them out with this episode.
Sleeping Beauty had all that. But despite this, it had plenty of good points to keep me entertained.
After episode 1.07, The Ringer, I was hoping that the next episode was going to be more about Coraline and the major head trip she was putting on Mick. Instead, Moonlight had to fix the pesky problem of Beth's post-traumatic stressed induced memory blocks. So instead we next got 1.08, 12:04 AM.
With that pesky problem out of the way, we're free to move back to the Coraline story arc with episode 1.09, Fleur De Lis. And, hang on to your seats folks, it's a heck of an episode.
Alas, instead of Coraline, we get a villain of another sort in the form of Donovan Shepherd, a serial killer whose life echoes that of Charles Manson.
Love makes you do the wacky – William the Bloody
When you love crazy people, it makes you crazy. Just ask Mick St. John. Fifty years ago, he married a woman named Coraline. But she neglected to tell him a slight detail. No, it's not that she was one spring roll short of an all-you-can eat Chinese buffet. She was, but that's a minor detail compared to the big secret: She was a vampire. Mick found that out the hard way, when she turned him into one as well.
