Fairy Gone (Episode 5) – Black Moon and Lost Child’s Song

Fairy Gone Title

Veronica has come to rescue Marlya from Team Rocket… I mean the Gui Carlin clean-up crew, but why? There must be more to it than being old friends.

What did you watch?

All right, so that was episode five of Fairy Gone. So far this series hasn’t set the world alight, but there’s always time to change, isn’t there. Well at twenty-four episodes long, there is, but they need to pick up the pace otherwise they’ll be no one but me watching it!


What happened?

Picking up the last episode, Veronica burst through the church window to save Marlya from Jonathan. He’s the standard lip-licking psychopath who likes to throw knives and hid inside his disposable fairies. Down in the crypts Free battles Patricia and her heavy chest.

Eventually, they all escape from the burning church, where Veronica finishes off Jonathan and disappears into the night, telling Marlya that the Veronica she knew is gone… again! They take the Black Fairy Tome back to headquarters and then it’s time for a celebration.

What did you think?

I’m having a really tough time with this series and this episode is not helping. While they got the Black Fairy Tome back, I don’t feel like anything progressed the storyline. We already know that Veronica is torn. What we don’t know is what the main point of the story is and what will happen if they fail to achieve whatever it is they’re trying to achieve. It feels like we’re watching a dark soap opera where it doesn’t matter if you miss a month’s worth of episodes. I just don’t get what they’re trying to do.


What was your favourite moment?

It was when Free was fighting Patricia and she seemed to have the upper hand. Suddenly, Free gave her a look and shifted his game to another level, breaking through her knives and then yelling at his fairy to stop screwing around. It’s interesting that he’s assessing his opponent, but it does get annoying given just how easily he ended up defeating her.

What was your least favourite moment?

Again with flashback montages! Seriously, this is beyond annoying. It doesn’t do anything to make the viewer connect with the characters. If anything we’re more likely to miss stuff, like the fact that the tune Veronica was humming at the end of the show was the same tune the girl called Monica was humming at the start of the show.


Who was your favourite character?

I want to say Veronica but she has little to no depth. All we know is that she’s dark and angry with a soft spot for Marlya. As a result, I think Free wins this episode, but I still don’t think they’ve done enough to connect us to the characters.

Who was your least favourite character?

That would be Jonathan. He was just annoying with all his insane babbling and peek-a-boo moments. This whole segment was not good.


Would you like some more?

I don’t know why, but I want this show to turn the corner and start to make sense. At present, it’s terribly disjointed and boring. I feel like something big needs to happen and hopefully all the scenes with the guy in the castle that Wolfran works for us leading up to something. Just give me a reason to want to know what happens, because at the moment I really couldn’t care less!

  1. Love your favorite moment — it was was one of mine, too! Did you notice Patricia’s reaction? She knew the odds had shifted!

    And I cheered when Jonathan died — not because Veronica won, but because now I won’t have put up with him anymore!

    I still enjoy watching this series, but it’s making me work for it. The bar scene in particular has me scratching my head…

      Yeah, she knew it was about to get messy. Jonathan was just an unbelievably terrible character. I really want to enjoy it, but I’m really not enjoying the style of storytelling. The flashback montages are absurd and don’t do anything to make us connect with the characters. By now, I should want to know what happens to them even if I’m not on board with the plot, but so far I don’t.

  2. “What did you think” paragraph sums it all up entirely. The same issues keep adding up as episode after episode they don’t get addressed and they are basic, simple issues that stories should cover from the start such as direction. At this point, it might just get repetitive and duller, not to mention the connection with the characters is so poor forget about it.

    • Lynn Sheridan

      Yeah, they just don’t seem to want to do anything to keep us coming back. I’ve seen this series dropped by a lot of reviewers, which probably means the regular viewers won’t give it as much of a chance. At the moment, I don’t think I could summarize what the show is about.
