“I can’t do ‘Moonlight’ again — it’s finished. The bottom line is that my true fans will follow me where I go.”

This story begins with another story that I did about Steve’s scars a few months ago. I am re-posting it here for those of you who haven’t read it before and also just for all of us to see those few shirtless moments again. 😉
In the beginning of the story I asked for some sort of explanation to this mystery of why the scar moved after Steve was initially shot in the arm and why the scar seems to look different all the time. Up until now nobody has offered me any form of answer
One thing I do know is that the chances of anybody surviving a shot
in that specific area, will be rare. Why am I saying this? For that we have to take a closer look at where this scar is located.
The scar ladies…..it’s about the scar!
Here is the proof that any human that has been shot in that spot,
could not survive it, if not treated immediately and much less be able to fight or operate a gun with that left arm.
On the exact same spot as the scar, you can see the Blue and Pink “tubes” that are the blood vessels that take the blood to and from the arm. The Yellow “tube” is the major nerve that goes to the arm. But anything is possible! It could have happened that the bullet past somewhere between the 1st and 2nd rib and somehow missed all those “tubes”…….but that still leaves me wondering about something else……
I am no gun expert but a bullet fired from a big gun like the one Victor used at such a close range, surely would have gone straight through the body (especially if it was able to penetrate the Kevlar)…..but alas no exit wound has ever been seen on his back.
AND as you can clearly see he WAS hit in the left bicep……..so what happened and why is the scar in a different place?
This is one of the “best” theories I could come up with:
We are watching the stories of Steve McGarrett the Undercover Vampire Navy SEAL of Hawaii Five-0. (The spin-off series of Moonlight)
How did we get here? What happened to Mick after the door closed at the season finale of Moonlight?
Beth woke up the following morning and decided that the s*x was not good enough for her! 😛 She did not want to give up her whole life and become a Vampire or a Freshie and she left Mick. Mick was heartbroken and decided to relocate. He joined the Navy and took the identity of Steve McGarrett. 😯
The first thing that any Moonlight fan
will ask me, is how is all this possible? 🙄 How is it possible for a Vampire to be a Navy SEAL and then handle the harsh sunlight in Hawaii? He is hardly ever seen with sunglasses either.
The secret lies in the re-turning by Josef in Moonlight, Episode 13, ‘Fated to Pretend’. With the superior blood lines that mixed in the process, Mick got a special ability to tolerate
sunlight. This is what makes him so good at doing his job. He is not only an Undercover Vampire now ……… he is a superhero named Steve McGarrett!! 🙂
Oh and we have to get back to the scars. The scars are just there as a cover for Mick/Steve to look human. He has to add them and his bicep tattoos every time he needs to go shirtless. Sometimes he gets it wrong and they look different. He also forgot where he was actually shot by Victor Hess and he just chose
the place where it is now, because he thought it looked cool and it was easy to reach. 😎
But I am on to him and he might just leave us further clues of his true identity – Mick St. John. After all we are fangirls and we look at everything through a magnifying glass. 😀
One of the errors of my career was doing a vampire show. The fans that I got from that show are very committed. They will never ever see me as anything other than Mick St. John.

Goodbye Sweetie…….till next time!
This is dedicated to the make-up department of Hawaii Five-0 – I know I joke about your work a lot, but it is mainly out of pure jealousy. You do a wonderful job and actually get to work closely with this gorgeous man’s body! So please forgive me for all my complaining.
PS. Are there any vacancies? 😉
I am adding this most recent casual picture of Alex to eliminate any confusion there might be of the existence of the scar beneath his collar bone in real life (Please take note that this was taken during hiatus this year and he was most probably not wearing any make-up to cover any scars during his private time)
