Midnight, Texas Season 1, Episode 8, “Last Temptation of Midnight,” Aired Sept 11, 2017
Things are getting crazy in Midnight and that’s putting it lightly. Let’s take a look at all of the crazy shiz that went down on the latest installment of Midnight, Texas.
Face ripper. A new demon is in town and he is beyond creepy! He kills a priest and cuts his face off to wear it! WTF!? And he doesn’t stop there! The demon cuts a bunch of faces off and then picks up our bud Manfred after his RV breaks down. Not good.
Fiji’s friend. Fiji has been having some trouble with that stupid demon that has been creeping around in her house. When a friend stops over, Fiji realizes that the demon isn’t just targeting her – it’s after her friend too. Her friend goes out onto the street and nearly stabs herself because she says that the demon told her to!
Grandma’s end. We knew that Manfred lost his grandma but we didn’t know how exactly, until now. She had cancer and instead of seeking more treatment, she “picked her exit” and took pills to end her life. It was super sad but it was also eye opening. Just before Grams died, she had a vision of Manfred saving Midnight. That’s why she sent him there. After she finally tells Manfred the truth, she is able to cross over. WE WILL MISS YOU!
Lem’s hunger. Ever since we saw Lem drink human blood, he has been having some trouble controlling his urges. It’s even worse in this episode and he almost takes a bite out of Olivia. The demon and the thinning of the veil are making Lem lose it. He wants to turn Olivia but she wants to stay human. Lem’s loss of control leads to an all out battle that is only stopped when Fiji hits Lem with some potion. Lem snaps out of it, but the damage is done. Olivia is pissed and we can’t say we blame her.
Manfred’s trick. The faceless demon brought a truck load of humans to sacrifice to the demon that has been bugging Fiji and it gets bonkers. When the faceless dude grabs Fiji, Manfred calls upon the spirits of the humans that the faceless demon killed. They attack the faceless demon and drag him back to Hell.
Everything seems okay and things are settled – for now.
Wow. We need a drink after that! What did you think?
