Mick and Beth were always a "team," right from the beginning. He killed (or did serious damage to) a TA to save her. She killed LeeJay to save him. He killed Pollack, the assassin at the No-Star Motel, the teen vamp, Lola, Shepherd, Martan, and (with Josef) took out the 3 vamps at Anders' lab. Why did she feel the need to "protect" him in secret? It's out of character.

Personally, I think they were trying to set up some conflicts for season 2 and they did a sloppy job of it. :2cents:

Well, be that as it may, it's canon. :brow: So I'm trying to fanwank it into some sort of meaningful context in terms of what we know about the characters in the show.

Fanwank.

Interesting word.

Don't think I've ever heard it before, but I like it.

An Alle original?

Oh, no, I didn't invent it. Here's one of many definitions: http://www.wordnik.com/words/fanwank

I don't agree with you about this, Lilly.I tend to agree more with MS. Beth was afraid to bring this to Mick since he'd already told her about what happens when a vampire has to leave. Kind of like the Witness Relocation Program, you can never go back, at least within a human life span or two.

I think there is that, but also...it strikes me as odd, since particularly with the Pollack kill, she saw him take out someone in cold blood who was a threat to the tribe.

On the other hand...people sometimes make decisions that aren't entirely logical. And possibly Beth didn't think through all the ramifications.

Beth? Not think something through?

Naaaaaah.

Oh, and about fanwank. Thanks, my vocabulary is duly expanded!

I wish I had been at chat last week. Just watching the episode now. This was one of my favorites. The "Dad" talk. Josef & Beth protecting Mick. I also liked the feel of the episode, fast paced paparazzi style. I'm only half done but when Mick told Talbot the anchor was the murder weapon he didn't seem to doubt it. I don't remember, was there a rumor about Talbot being a werewolf?

That was one of the things Harry Werksman mentioned at the Con, Carol. But I'm pretty sure that CBS nixed the werewolf idea, so they went with the Legion story instead in their second-season pitch.

Thanks Alle. Werewolf would have explained why Talbot would have gone along with the anchor thing he may have smelled it as well. He may have known or guessed that Mick was a vampire and wanted to get Beth working with him so he could confirm that. :sigh: All the possibilities
