The Blood Moon: Pilot Episode Summary
Lia Ortega and Mateo Rodriguez abandon their respective destinies as chosen ones to become a couple. Their earlier mission was to instill peace and l0ve among werewolves, vampires and mortals for them to live amicably on earth but at a point the two forgo their purpose to engage in romantic relationship after their last war with the evil vampire, Magnus Imperial.
This changed their mission and purpose as their core wish now is to give their daughter a better life away from their respective clans as werewolf and vampire.
After Mateo, a vampire and Lia, a werewolf embark on the unity project with Mateo k!lling the evil vampire who k!lled Mateo’s father and set the earth under disrepute formed the La Liga Unida (LLU), a unity bond ensuring no creature makes the other a prey.
Mateo (vampire) together with Luna Soldiers (mostly mortals), wolves formed the LLU and each member is accustomed to the bond. The two mighty creatures, Mateo and Lia then fall in l0ve with eachother after sealing the unity bond, thinking their task was accomplished. Unaware of a creature Barang has created to conflict their task.
They then give birth to Malia (name combination of Mateo and Lia and a reflection of the two formidable forces in one person) who is a still born. The two mighty creatures conferred their power on the child to resurrect her. Jethro, a seer now prophesied that the earlier prophesy has changed as there is a new chosen one coming from the new world brought forth by Mateo and Lia since a new evil vampire with a cursed ink will emerge.
And the prophesy is fulfilled as Sandrino, a son of Magnus Imperial who is still bitter with how Matteo k!lled his father without showing him mercy even when he begged Matteo a number of times to spare his father’s life and give him a second chance to make things right for the better.
Mateo believes Magnus transgressions to humanity is beyond repairs and he k!lled Magnus. Magnus is widely known as rapist aside his other evil acts. He is believed to have raped Maria, Sandrino’s mother and Rica, the mother of Tristan.
Soon, after her rape, Tonio, a Luna Soldier who helped Mateo to bring an end to Magnus married Rica. During an award ceremony, Rica who had a baby bump received a prophesy from Jethro that under a full moon the son she would give birth to and a chosen one’s powers will merge to bring an end to the vampire with a cursed ink.
The prophecy gets Supremo agitated as he bared the cursed ink. Cursed ink is a cursed spell which consumes all the goodness in man’s heart, it causes them to have bad intentions, rage, anger and has no heart on people but also becomes stronger.
Before Sandrino became Supremo, he was a mortal child whose mother, Maria Villalobo despised due to how Magnus raped her. She showed the resentment she had for the father to the child instead. She starves him forcing the boy to feed on live animals like fowl. Through that the boy begins to have alter ego, a secondary personality that does things beyond his control.
Due to the maltreatment he has been suffering, he was fighting to be l0ved and become like any normal kid but his suffering reached its peak when he bit and suck the blood of a boy. Realising what his alter ego has done he apologised but his mother pushes him off a balcony with an intention to k!ll him. Surprisingly he did not die. His alter ego equally pushed his mother from the same balcony and the woman died.
Sandrino is later seen by Rica who showed him l0ve and calls him Gilbert Imperial meaning the chosen one, the name she intends to give Tristan. When the Lunas capture Rica and k!ll Sandrino, Barang, a foster mother of Sandrino invokes the spell of the Cursed Ink, conferring upon him a protection from all weapons and transforms him into a vampire to avenge his race. Barang fuels the anger of Sandrino until the curse consumes his soul.
When everything seems normal for the chosen ones, Mateo and Lia as they have carried on with their lives as mortals with their seven years daughter, Malia after they lost their formidable power when they used it to resurrect their daughter.
They fail to attend LLU meetings and lead their simple lives in San Isidro devoid of worries and fight. They enjoyed their mortal beings and fail to talk to their daughter about who they really are. Waiting to confirm their human nature under the blood moon and it happens as they wanted, they are mortals.
They have plans for the future of their daughter, however their wish for their daughter crushed when Jethro sees a new prophesy of the chosen one again. The prophecy gets on Supremo’s nerve and together with his minions they embark on a manhunt for Malia.
Possessing a great power, Supremo captures Jethro to force him to reveal whether he is the vampire he saw Malia k!lling. As the seer failed to talk, he holds him as hostage. Together with his rebel vampires, they smite female children of seven years, this compelled Veruska, a wolf whose husband is the Lord Sentinel of the LLU council to betray her clan by revealing where Lia and Mateo is hiding with their daughter.
Although Baristo tries to make Mateo and Lia evade the bad fate by fleeing from their hidden abode, the couple soon is found by Sandrino’s minions and the former chosen ones died in the fight to protect Malia. Sandrino took joy when he finished off Mateo, Lia and a child with a belief that he would now reign forever.
Unbeknownst, Baristo saves Malia and the LLU members who survived the massacre go into hiding to train Malia for 14 years to help her unleash her formidable power during her 21st birthday under the full moon before the blood moon or the super moon to take down Supremo. However, the expectations of the LLU greet with hitches as Malia’s power fails to manifest sending the camp into disrepute.
Tristan also loses his father, Tonio after a vampire k!lls him during the massacre when he was protecting little Tristan from Supremo’s minions. After his foster father’s funeral, he is taken away from San Isidro to Manila and 14years later he becomes a mechanic and a driver who has a will power to avenge Tonio’s death.
He joins Moonchasers, anti vampire association to find a lasting solution in finding the existence of vampires and getting rid of them.
Sandrino now assumes the leadership of his race and becomes the Supremo, the King of evil vampires and architect of a utopian world without werewolves where humans exist solely as their food source.
