It’s been a while since there has been a vampire show on TV. Angel was just a continuation of Buffy. Blade was an action show. Moonlight is somewhere in between. It’s gritty and romantic, which isn’t appalling. Unlike Angel and Forever Knight, Mick St-John isn’t that old of a vampire, so the flashbacks all take place in the 1950s to 1970s.
Alex O’Loughlin plays Mick St-John, a vampire private detective. He is a vampire who fully remembers what it meant to be human and longs to be human.
In this episode, Mick discovers that Coraline is still alive and well. Coraline has found a way to be alive again, and not a vampire. This is astounding news to Mick. However Beth has other plans for Coraline. When she discovers that Morgan is Coraline, she has her own ideas on what to do with her.
I liked this episode. I’m still curious on how Coraline became human again. this will probably be revealed in the next episode, if Coraline survives. This episode is called Fleur de Lis, but the right spelling in French is Fleur de Lys.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
