Being Human - I Loathe You (For Sentimental Reasons)

Aidan is having trouble with his cravings and goes to visit the old donor lady again. She opened the door and the sight of her really bummed us out. She looked drained. Sickly. Aidan had to leave, because if he sucked on her nasty-looking, cut up, scarred arms again, she would die. Suren met a local mob boss who wants to be turned into a vampire. In exchange, he will provide access to all the corrupt politicians and cops in the city. He will also provide security, hunting down the last of the orphans. Aidan is against turning this man, even though he is not all bad. He provides protection for some citizens and brought a rogue orphan to Suren’s doorstep for her to stake.

Aidan goes back to the old donor lady’s apartment and a child answers the door, clearly being offered as food. To his credit, Aidan doesn’t just leave, he bolts. He decides to turn the mob boss for Suren but loses control and kills him. Suren joins in to feast and gets what she really wants: Aidan, romantically.

We got to see some 1930s flashbacks of Aidan and Suren, and the nature of their relationship. Sexual, obviously. Aidan had an underling that he turned. The underling was unsatisfied with the perks of being a vampire, because he had to serve under Aidan, and Aidan was charged with babysitting Suren. Mother was in full control over Suren, and Suren wanted to run away with Aidan. Aidan refused, so Suren slept with Aidan’s underling. Aidan tried to kill the betrayer, but Suren stopped him, saying that Aidan made his choice. We hope that’s the last we see of Aidan’s awful little mustache.

Josh’s plot this week was interesting. He met two werewolf siblings who were Born This Way, baby. Brynn and Connor are a little wild, and Connor ends up in the psych ward after getting into a fight. Brynn spots Josh in the hospital, is able to tell he is a wolf, and convinces Josh to help her break Connor out. They couldn’t have him turning into a werewolf in a few days, after all. It wouldn’t be safe. They take Josh out to party, revealing that because they were born wolves, they always felt the way he does on the day of a full moon. That’s why Connor is so aggressive.

Connor has to use an herb called wolfsbane to keep himself calm. It wasn’t really his fault he got into a fight if you take that into account, but Josh still doesn’t like Connor. He thinks the siblings are spoiled, because they party and are rich. Josh tells them that he is looking for a way to cure lycanthropy, and they offer their support…and money. Josh refuses at first, because he doesn’t like the siblings. Aidan tells Josh to get a grip and take their help.

Josh calls them into his storage unit lab and explains that he is looking for a trigger, so that he can turn it off. The siblings get excited, because they realize that if Josh finds that trigger, he will be able to turn it ON for them all the time. They don’t want a cure to be human. They want to be permanent wolves. Brynn explains to Josh that she feels wrong inside 29 days a month, while Josh feels bad for one day a month. Josh sympathizes. Brynn is drop-dead gorgeous and might cause a love triangle between Josh and Nora. Both women are likeable, but if Josh abandons Nora at this point for someone so unpredictable and clearly animalistic, we will have a hard time forgiving him.

Sally still wants to reincarnate, and Zoe invites her to a ghost support group meeting. There, Sally sees her dead ex-date, Nick. When we last saw Nick, he was really obsessed with his own death and relived it by drowning every day, in order to feel something. Sally gave him the boot. Nick is now dating Zoe, and he has stopped drowning himself. He is a lot better. This upsets Sally, because she can’t understand why Nick could get better for Zoe and not her. Sally thinks that she should have a shot at healthy Nick, seeing as they are both dead.

So, yeah, Ern doesn't think Sally was making any sense this week, but Leeard felt really bad for her and could fully relate. Breaking up with someone because they won't change, and then finding out that they changed for someone else really hurts. Sally sees a couple kissing passionately and saying gushy stuff to each other. Ripped apart by jealousy and loneliness, Sally loses her damn mind and possesses the woman so that she can continue the makeout session. This guy was not even hot and not worth risking your existence over.

This was a fine episode, but it wasn’t as intense as other episodes, and it didn’t suck us in as much as previous weeks. We enjoyed the Jack Bauer/Chloe/24 reference by Josh though. This show has been renewed for a third season, so that’s good news.

Episode grade: B
