First off the angel chick, Bowie, I have to admit is pretty cool. This episode called “Angel Heart”, finally gives us a little more information about Joe’s past. Unfortunately, there was no young hot Mickey Rourke. (Google Angel Heart and that will make a bit more sense to you- promise.)
This contains big time spoilers. If you haven’t watched the episode, I am advising you turn back now. Save yourself.**
The cool female angel Bowie trained Joe. She taught him about battles or something? Killing things basically. 🤔The opening scene is a bit unclear of the origins of their relationship. Over in current times, Creek returns to work after discovering her family disturbing secrets. Fiji is also battling a case of PTSD over the demon hanging around her. And, I guess she’s still lovelorn over Bobo. Joe’s partner, Chuy, returns to Midnight as well, telling Joe that he wouldn’t let him fight this battle alone. I’m still not clear what the battle is, but ok. The badass chick angel finds Joe’s shop, but he and Chuy manages to flee before she arrives.
Olivia and Lem hide Joe and Chuy in their panic room. Joe calls a special Scooby club meeting. Bowie confronts Manfred demanding he tell her Joe’s location, but since he has been possessed by Zelda she cannot read his thoughts. Afterwards Manfred joins the Scooby meeting; during which Joe confesses to having left Bowie for Chuy. Oh, btw Chuy is a demon. Nice twist!
Joe and Chuy explain that Chuy is only half demon and Bowie believes all demons deserve to die. Joe says Chuy’s has humanity and that’s when he fell in love and decided to be with him instead of Bowie. That’s actually really sweet. Manfred comes up with a plan to use Fiji’s mirror as a portal to send Bowie to hell. During their conversation about the towns latest drama Olivia tells Lem eventually she will leave him because she doesn’t want to be turned or grow old in front of him. Y’all smell that foreshadowing don’t you? Over at the bar Bowie threatens to kill humans if Joe’s whereabouts aren’t revealed to her.
The Scooby Gang’s plan doesn’t work. Bowie manages to evade the portal and decides to emotionally drag Manfred by exposing Creeks thoughts. She thinks Manfred is a useless scam artist that should have told her about her dad and father. Mean, but kind of true. Joe seemingly had had enough, because he turns into angel mode and physically drags Bowie away. Joe and Bowie fight an almost cool little battle, but she bests him. Then Bowie threatens to kill Joe which causes Chuy to turn into a demon. He of course kills Bowie, which I must say was anti climatic and not as exciting as it should have been. Joe manages to calm Chuy and bring him back to his human form. He apologizes for turning demon and I guess keeping the secret of his identity. Manfred confesses to Joe he didn’t really stay in Midnight for the town – it’s all about Creek. Yeah, but they are just so blah. They are so boring. Manfred and Creek have the chemistry of a bowl of soup – actually soup is hotter.
Speaking of blah, Fiji has a breakdown. She is over the new drama and longs for the days when the town was boring. Urm, honey don’t worry it still is.😏 Manfred decides to leave town – again.
There is a serious lack of thrilling with this show. The storylines are coming off dry and somewhat dull. I still cannot place my finger on what this show suffers from but it’s definitely still suffering. I’m hanging, I hope you guys are as well.
A faceless supernatural makes a pilgrimage to Midnight to usher in the arrival of a demon from the veil to Hell – the same demon that has been plaguing Fiji (Parisa Fitz-Henley). Meanwhile, the Midnighters struggle to fight the effects of the veil to Hell opening in their town, especially Lem (Peter Mensah) and the Rev (Yul Vazquez), whose hunger increases to dangerous levels. Olivia (Arielle Kebbel) and Bobo (Dylan Bruce) make plans of their own to protect the town. Elsewhere, Creek (Sarah Ramos) struggles in the face of great loss as Manfred (François Arnaud) confronts his constant self-medicating.
