Midnight, Texas Review: Blinded By the Light (Season 1 Episode 6)

Midnight, Texas Season 1 Episode 6, “Blinded By The Light” answered the pivotal question that started the series. We found out who killed Aubrey and, lo and behold, it turned out to be Connor. Just like the last episode wrapped up some major storylines, this episode did the same thing. Lots of threads were revealed this week, and it was definitely a wild ride from the beginning to the end scene. 

Connor, The Killer

I was definitely wondering how the question of Aubrey’s murder was going to be answered. Bobo obviously didn’t do it, and Lowry didn’t kill his wife. Someone killed her, and it was a loose thread hanging in the story but not for much longer. 

Of all the people that could’ve been her killer, I never would’ve expected that it was Connor the whole time. That was a left turn if I ever saw one. The fact that it was him and that his father was helping him cover everything just made things all the more intense. 

I don’t feel bad or sympathetic for him in the least bit, though. The fact that he was covering everything up means he knew what he was doing was wrong. I would’ve loved it for The Midnighters to go ahead and kill the father too. It would suck for Creek but, in this instance, the cover-up is just as bad, if not worse, than the actual crime itself.

Angelic Homing Beacon

The mystery of Joe Strong deepened by the end of the episode. I was relieved that he finally showed everyone that he was an angel. At first, I was under the impression that everyone knew what everyone was but, since that apparently wasn’t the case, it’s great that everything’s out on the table now.

Though, there are still plenty of questions that are left to be answered. Why did he wait so long to tell everyone that he was an angel? What are the consequences of using his power that he had to warn Chuy not to come to town? Who are the people he’s so afraid of that’s gonna come to Midnight? Why exactly is he a fallen angel, as opposed to a regular angel?

With the season more than half over, I expect the answers to those questions and more are gonna be answered relatively quickly.

Other Thoughts

  • I wonder how long it’s gonna be until we see more than just the hand of the demon. A threat like that usually doesn’t stay out of sight for long.
  • I can’t wait to find out more about the prophecy. Now that everyone knows what’s happening, they should be let in on that part of it as well.
  • I most definitely more scenes between Fiji and Joe now.

Overall Grade: A (This episode was full of twists and turns that kept me engaged to what was going on. This show certainly knows how to maintain the pace and still have enough left on the table to keep you coming back. After tonight’s episode, there’s no reason for me to quit this show.)
