Moonlight Episode Discussion - Ep 3: Dr. Feelgood

You're right, FdL. I don't think our rewatching of that scene will turn too many heads on this board. LOL.


A woman arrives home and is shocked at the state her garage is in.

Image

She looks around and finds her husband (our newbie vamp) sitting in the refrigerater.

Image

She's a little worried. Ya think?! When asked, he says it felt good to sit in the frig. She tell's him it will be alright - that he's just stressed. Uhuh. She has NO idea.

Image

They head into the house.

Later that night.....

Mick and Beth go for a drive. They are waiting to hear something about First and Main. Beth is eating chips and offers Mick one. She says there is no garlic. He laughs. He could eat chips with garic. If he ate.

Image

They discuss what it means to be a vampire. She asks if he can fly. He answers 'yes'. Just kidding.

Image

Beth wants to know how old he actually is. He tells her he was Turned when he was thirty but he will be 85 yrs old.

Image

Beth gets a message on her iPhone about a car being towed from First and Main. It belonged to a Jeffrey Pollack.

Image

They head to Pollack's address.

When they arrive it's dark and quiet. Mick apparently asked Beth to wait in the car again. She doesn't and reminds him how well that worked last time.

Image

Following the scent of blood, they find Pollack's dead wife.

Image

They go searching for some clue of where Pollack would have went. They find his office. Beth sees a wedding photo of Pollack and his wife. She's horrified that he killed his own wife. Mick is suspiciously quiet.

Image

Beth starts to ask him questions about his life before becoming a vampire. He tells her he had to give up his family because he was a danger to them. And, yes, he was married. Mick tells her his wife was dead. Beth says she's sorry. Mick mumbles that, no, she's not. Hahahaha, I love those little zingers. Mick finds that Pollack is a doctor at a local hospital.

There's a noise. Mick tells Beth to stay put. Twice.

Image

Mick finds the intruder in the living room. It's Gerald Stovsky.

Image

Stovsky thought about it and would like to show his new vamp the ropes. He'd never been able to sire before and he wants to take advantage now.

Mick says it's too late - Pollack is ferral. He's already killed and will only get worse. Stovsky doesn't want to listen. He stakes Mick.

Image

And he leaves. Beth hears the door and she comes looking for Mick. Thank the Lord. Mick can't move but manages to tell Beth to pull the stake out.

Image

She's worried. He doesn't look too good. He tells her it's okay, he heals fast. They need to get to the hospital.

I liked Alex in this scene. I thought he did the whole 'staked vampire thing' really well. :cheering:

Yes, blue. He acted his sweet little a*s off in that scene. From being paralyzed, to being in pain, to being weak and then recovering from it. He was great.

I agree Blue. It was both funny and endearing.


Jeffrey Pollack finds the hospital to be a virtual candy store for vampires. There is blood everywhere!

Image

He roams the halls, looking in on patients who are having blood tests done, IVs. And then, there's Stovsky who shows up to try and 'train' his young ward.

Image

But Pollack doesn't want to listen. He attacks Stovsky and continues on. Stovsky runs into Mick and Beth and tells them that Stovsky is a madman. Uh, madvamp.

Image

Mick tries to talk Pollack into remembering that he was just recently human and he does not need to kill in order to feed.

Image

Again, Pollack doesn't want to hear it. He's a vampire! Top of the food chain. He intends to enjoy himself. Pollack takes off and Mick is in hot pursuit.

Meanwhile, Stovsky runs into some people who have been waiting for him.

Image

Mick catches up with Pollack and they fight.

Image

Mick stakes him and Pollack whines, promising that he'll be good. Mick tells him it's too late.

Image

Beth finds Mick as he's wheeling Pollack on a gurney. She wants to know what Mick is going to do with him.

Image

Mick's going to do what he must - and get rid of Pollack. He doesn't want Beth involved. To the incinerator with Pollack.

Image

Later on, Josef joins Mick at his place for a little 'pick me up'. He gets a kick out of Pollack being incinerated. He tells Mick he would have done the same thing, except he would have enjoyed it.

Image

Mick's not laughing. They speak of Coraline, Mick's wife and sire. Josef thinks Mick has been carrying her memory around long enough.

Image

It's time to let her go. Mick agrees. But, apparently, easier said than done.

Image

Next morning, Mick goes to see Beth. Mick is ready to tell her how he became a vampire.

Image

He tells her how it was his wife who Turned him on his wedding night.

Image

Also, Beth had questioned earlier if Mick trusted her. Mick tells her that she's the first human he has ever shared any of this with. So, yeah, he trusts her.

Image

And he leaves.

Love the wide sitting pose that Mick does.

He just looks so.....comfy, yeah, that's the word I was looking for. :devil:

And those scenes by Beth's door, I think I held my breath the entire first time I watched that.

Thanks again GA for doing such a wonderful job with the re-caps and the pix. :hearts:

Okay, I've been waiting FOREVER to make this observation....

In this shot...

Image

There is a shadow between Beth and Josh. It looks to me oddly like Mick's shadow has fallen between them, just as Beth's growing attraction to Mick is dividing her from Josh.

Coupled with the fact that Mick is doing a voiceover as we see this, it really almost feels as though he's spying on them as they are lying in bed.

Omg lucky!!

You are freaking me out!
Yes, it does look like a shadow of someone--you can see the shadows of Beth's and Josh's heads, it is definitely not theirs.
Amazing observation---would love to know if they meant to put that in, and if they have done that before and we haven't noticed. Or, is it just a shadow from the cameraman shooting the scene?

I am going with Mick, because I love that scenario.

Beyond weird lucky, beyond weird. There are so many great scenes in this epi. It's one of my favorites. His hand on hers at the end, the stay in the car bit, even the scene where he is explaining how he is a vampire and why she can't be there when he is at the incinerator. Just lovely. :yahoo:

I finally started watching the show today, i watched the first 3 episodes in a raw with my niece, she absolutely loved it, i have to admit that i didn't particularly liked the first 2 episodes, i liked them enough to keep going though but i absolutely loved the 3rd one, loving Mike back story and Alex is so great in that role, same for Jason love his character and Sophia is good too. So Overall it's a pretty good show and i'm sure it's gonna get even better. :ysmile:
