It’s been a long time since we last saw Midnight, Texas. The first season ended in mid-September 2017. So it’s been more than a year since last season ended. That’s a long wait. The series is based by the popular books written by Charlaine Harris, who also wrote True Blood. But the show hasn’t yet reached the audience that True Blood has, which was why renewal is still up in the air at NBC for so long.
The show premiered with 3.6 million viewers, which isn’t bad for a summer series premiere. And it didn’t lose too much after that, with a finale of 3.4 million viewers. This might not be great for a fall or spring series, but was good for a summer series. Now it remains to be seen what happens now that the show is moved to the fall.
If you don’t remember where the show left off, here’s a quick recap. The finale began with the group concerned about a veil separating the living from the dead. Fiji was the demon’s big focus, and everyone set out to save her. A wraith badly burned Olivia, and she, Bobo, and Creek sought shelter in Fiji’s home. Manfred found demonically imprinted items at the pawn shop and told Lem that he planned to “let evil hijack me.” He told Creek that he loved her just before he took the big step. In exchange for a promise of being freed from this realm, multiple evil spirits jumped into Manfred’s body to help him.
So thus powered, Manfred squared off to face Colcannar. Meanwhile, Bobo suggested sleeping with Fiji so the demon wouldn’t want her anymore, but she admitted to accidentally killing Jeremy when she tried that. She wasn’t willing to risk Bobo’s life. However, he persisted, they made love, and Colcannar was very, very angry.
That’s when possessed-Manfred, with the help of Lem and the Reverend (who is actually a werewolf), destroyed Colcannar in battle and the veil re-sealed. Olivia, meanwhile, was close to dying. But Lem gave her some of his vampire blood and she was healed. They later married.
At the very end, Manfred realizes that he’s bleeding from his ear and the ground beneath him begins to rumble. That’s when everyone goes outside and sees a construction crew. Melanie Pratt says they’re renovating the hotel and they want to revive Midnight. Manfred sees a ghost banging on the hotel window, and it looks like very bad things are afoot.
