Sue (Ontlls) said that she like Episode 13 – ‘Fated to Pretend’, so we celebrate her birthday by having a closer look at it, while celebrating our ‘Month of Mick’!
Here we have Mick, who at long last, got what he wanted to have the most in this world – to be human again! Mick all pretty and happy with all his cuts and bruises, strolling carefree along the beach……..
Surrounded by hundreds of girls eye-humping him and he´s wondering how they would react if he told them he was 85 years old. Most of them would definitely want to have his plastic surgeon´s number – this is LA after all!! 😀
But in his eyes, there is only one girl for him……Beth!
Then *bam*, tragedy strikes and Beth lands in the hands of evil vampires. Only Mick can save her and as a human he has got no chance! 😦 There is only one way out, and he begs Josef to turn him back again!
Mick has to give up the one thing that he wanted for so long – being human!
Have you ever experienced a moment in your live, where you had to give up something that you regarded as the most precious thing you possess? What kind of power persuades a person to take that step to give it up…….. is it only true love that can motivate a person to do it?
… that little line, ‘My Beth’… that was actually an improv line. ‘My Beth’ just came out of me being in the moment in the scene, living in Mick there for a moment. I don’t remember it happening, but when we were shooting I was just thinking how much I loved this woman.

Mick and Josef storm in and save the day – or rather Beth and the DA. And everybody pretends to be happy, because life is short and it seems
we they are all ‘fated to pretend’! 😀
And in the end, we only got a kiss out of it all…….
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Sue, Mick sends his love too
And best wishes from Paula and FOYeur!
