Midnight, Texas Season 2, Episode 2: The Monster of the Week Is Patriarchy
So far Season two is off to a great start and I for one am looking forward to finding out what’s going on in Midnight in the coming weeks.
I told you Manfred wasn't feeling well so and now you all know why. Demon possession can be a real bitch and apparently, it leaves a nasty aftertaste. Luckily Kai's supernatural healing ability saved Manfred from "demon cancer" (poor wording by the way). And just how did Kai do that? Well, that mystery hasn't been solved yet but I'm sure we will find out in time.
Anyway, besides our newest additions to Midnight we now know something is up with Fiji and Bobo (well, besides the obvious). It seems their happiness is pissing someone or something off, but more about that later. And who can forget Olivia and Lem? If you were her would you really want someone reading your every thought and feeling? Yes, it seems cool but I'm not really sure how cool it is.
Anyway, Let's move on to episode two, shall we? Manfred was right when he said last week that the Hotel is haunted and this week we get out first "visitors". Unfortunately, they aren't all that friendly and cause some mayhem. Luckily Manfred and Fiji are there to help restore order despite having their suspicions about Kai and Patience.
Speaking of Fiji, she is beginning to realize there is something wrong and that a strange force seems to be out to get Bobo... but what and more importantly why? And speaking of lovey-dovey couples, I was right about Olivia and Lem. She is already annoyed with their "blood Bond" and wants some space. Of course, Lem really knows how she feels when he accidentally messes up and she has to help clean up his mess.
This leads to another realization that the supernaturals in Midnight are going to be really interested in but I won't spoil that surprise. You will just have to watch and find out for your selves.
There were some noticeable absences this week too. Creek is gone and Manfred is feeling lonely though he still holds out hope for their happy reunion. The Rev is nowhere to be found this week either but I'm sure we will be seeing him in the near future. Joe is also less involved in episode two but that is only because he is grappling with awakened feelings that have laid dormant for hundreds of years. It will be interesting to see how Walker fits into all this.
So far Season two is off to a great start and I for one am looking forward to finding out what's going on in Midnight in the coming weeks.
