Alex O’Loughlin’s Guide to Moonlight – Episode 12

Moonlight Episode 12

– The Mortal Cure –

Written by: Chip Johannessen

(18 Jan 2008)

Beth discovers that Josh was getting ready to propose to her. Meanwhile, Mick learns that Coraline is still alive but is a vampire again. She tells him about a cure and, in fact, administers it to Mick before she is whisked away by a powerful vampire, leaving a very human Mick behind.


Notes O’Loughlin, “Mick has been obsessed with a cure; the fact that there’s a way out. You know, there’s an important moment in episode seven when Josef says to Mick, ‘You’ve got to stop hating what you are. Accept it.’ And Mick doesn’t. Well, he does, but he lives in this controlled denial. He’s not a stereotypical vampire. He’s a reluctant vampire. In this episode he’s cured and he remembers how painful it is to be human. And there’s a gap between Mick and Beth, Coraline’s gone and we don’t know what’s going to happen to Mick. It was a pretty exciting place to leave us when the Writer’s Guild strike happened.”

  1. The pleasure on Mick’s face in this episode when he hurts and doesn’t heal like the rest of us is truly beautiful on Alex’s part. I does emotion so well.


  2. Yes he does Caroline and he was so damn gorgeous !!”OUR MICK”

    I really liked this ep and was disappointed when the FinalFour eps just dropped this whole scenario, including Coraline and the love triangle.
