Episode 13

Mick is enjoying the idea of being human again, but when Beth is threatened by the killer of her BuzzWire boss Maureen, he feels he has no choice but to ask Josef to turn him back into a vampire so that he can rescue her.


“I remember reading that scene with Mick and Josef in the loft when Mick is going off to be the hero, and Josef slaps him around a bit and says, ‘You’re out of your mind,’ and Mick realizes what he has to do,” says O’Loughlin. “So he reluctantly asks Josef to turn him back. I thought it came out great and I thought it was an evocative scene. That’s one of the things I’m intrigued by about these creatures – there’s such ambiguity to them, which this scene played in to sexually.”

  1. My favorite ML episode…

    “He has Beth. He has my Beth!” Ad-lib lines are the best. *sigh*


  2. Alex said the scene was evocative but it was highly erotic too! Might have to be my favourite scene from the entire series, that and the one when Mick and Josef were feeding on the freshie. Pleased that he recognised the sexuality of the scene too.

      yes I agree with you. I have no shame in saying that turning scene if one of my favorite from the show. Vampires are sexy sensual creatures , and when they feed it is a sensual act. There is no denying that the turning scene was sensual. You can forget it I mean wow Josef turned him on a table can’t forget that .

    I’m days late to the party but this was my fav epi. Especially as he’s being turned back the one tear slips down his face. Heartbreaking and so very erotic.

    Beach. Sun. Skin. Such lovely skin. *ahem*

    That turning scene was wonderfully erotic, yes. What shall we call it? Friends with benefits? Different kind of benefit, but still. And the fact that Josef just had him on that table, like a drunken couple too far gone to make it to the bed – YOW.

    Am I getting obnoxious yet? Because I’m having a grand time rolling around in here. Tell me if I get the couch all messy, okay?


  5. The way Josef looks like he is trying to control himself, like it’s all he can do to not feed on Mick when he shoves/throws Mick into the wall was so good. I can’t say I blame him. I loved that all black outfit on Mick.
