Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 10 Review: The Virgin Sacrifice

at . Comments

A happy ending for everyone is the kind of ending we love.

Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 10 wrapped up its first season in a way that was unexpected, intense and incredibly satisfying.

The Wraiths - Midnight, Texas

Manfred might have been the one to come face-to-face with Colconar, but it was Fiji who was the true hero of this story.

Fiji was willing to sacrifice herself to save her friends and Midnight, and it was a brave move on her part. When Bobo found out what she was going to do, he had a much better idea. And it was a beautiful one to boot.

The two of them have been doing a slow dance since Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 1 so it was quite satisfying for them to come together at the end of the season the way they did.

What better way to show love for their friends and Midnight by showing their love for each other in the most intimate of ways? They created magic just by being together, and it was enough to ward off the demon spirits and ruin Colconar's plan of ultimate destruction.

And Bobo finally had a purpose which was wonderful, because all season I had been wondering what the point was of his character. Well, he ended up being very important to the plot. Who would've guessed that?

The greatest thing about Bobo and Fiji's union was how naturally it happened. They didn't rush into anything and suddenly rip off their clothes like they could have done. Instead, they talked about their feelings for each other, and how they both wanted to be together for quite some time.

Fiji was worried about hurting Bobo the way she hurt Jeremy, but Bobo wasn't. Fiji was older now and more in control of her powers and her emotions. Deep down he knew it was all going to be okay, and she did too, otherwise, she wouldn't have allowed it to happen. 

What I loved most about the entire scene was the slowness of it. It was very romantic and refreshing. Sometimes you don't need to see all the nitty-gritty to get the point across.

Unfortunately, Fiji and Bobo's lovemaking wasn't enough to get rid of Colconar completely. The demon knew when Fiji was no longer a virgin, and it was furious.

Manfred had been battling the demon but was losing the fight. The prophecy had stated the only way he could fight evil was with evil, and he had allowed several evil spirits to take over his body.

But they weren't enough until Lem showed up with a super booster that allowed Manfred to finally defeat Colconar. 

Choices - Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 10

Out of everything that happened this hour, the big battle was the least exciting. I guess I was expecting more from a big, bad demon that wanted to destroy the world or at least it's section of the world.

Kokonar wasn't that intimidating after his power was diminished from Fiji losing her virginity, but I guess that was the point. Her story was the most important story. 

What's surprising is why the prophecy didn't have any mention of a woman. Considering Fiji played such an important role in the defeat of Colconar, you'd think it might've shown up in the prophecy. Maybe Joe just read it all wrong.

All that matters is that Fiji didn't have to sacrifice herself to save anyone. But her life wasn't the only one in the balance.

When the team arrived back in Midnight at the beginning of the hour, they had to fight some of the spirit demons. One of them grabbed Olivia and almost killed her. It had left a deep wound in her stomach that Fiji couldn't cure.

Creek had to take Olivia to the hospital, and things looked quite dire for her. She wasn't expected to make it through the night.

Lem didn't know about Olivia because she didn't want anyone being distracted from taking care of business, but once all was back to normal, Bobo broke the news to Lem.

Of course, Lem was going to do whatever was necessary to save the love of his life, but it didn't go the way I expected. I thought he was going to turn her to save her, but instead, he just gave her some of his blood which made her stronger, and she was able to make a full recovery.

If Olivia had died, I would not have been happy. Granted, I expected someone to die, and Olivia would have been the perfect person considering she had told Lem she was leaving Midnight after it was all over. 

But it didn't turn out that way at all because everyone had a happy ending in Midnight and Lem and Olivia had the happiest ending of all.

I never expected them to get married, but they did, and it was wonderful. Does this mean Olivia is going to turn at some point? Maybe, but for now, it's good to see she's finally made a commitment and is willing to stay to be with her man.

Day or Night Lem is Always Cool - Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 10

The season finale tied up everything that needed to be tied up in a satisfactory way, but it did leave a few strings behind should the series get picked up for a second season.

Overall, Midnight, Texas was a great summer series. It wasn't perfect by any means, but as the season progressed, it kept getting better. I do hope we get a Season 2 so that we can delve more into each of the characters as they tackle the issues that have come up in Midnight. 

How about you? Do you want the story to continue?
