The Last Three Episodes of Being Human

The Ties that Blind The flashforward of Nora and Josh waking up, naked, in the woods killed any suspense that one of them (ok, Nora) might be killed. Werewolves always look so nasty and feral the next morning when they wake up as humans. Gross. The twins find out about Josh’s betrayal in this episode, and they are none too pleased. No more twin friends. Nora has accepted her wolf side completely, which is crazy, but we kind of like it. Josh and Nora are over, for now, and that creates new possibilities for both characters. We approve.

We can’t believe the twins lived through the night and were completely shocked when Aidan appeared to blow the brother away. How awesome was that? The dead wolf body sure looked nasty. We were sick of him anyway. Sally had a great showdown with Danny, who died in prison. The reaper showed up, took Danny, and made it clear that it won’t be long until he eliminates Sally too. Hey, but at least she’s special! This episode was more action-packed than usual. Most of the time we like our episodes a little more talky and relationship driven, but this was fine.
Episode grade: B

I’ve Got You Under My Skin We loved when Sally told herself to “nut up” in the beginning of the episode. We say that all the time (usually to each other). This girl is lucky she died with lipstick on. Right away, we thought it would be so cool if Sally became a reaper. Sally, it’s a pretty crazy idea to rip apart the reaper. That could have all sorts of otherworldly consequences and upset the balance between life and death. Duh. Sally does need a purpose in order for her storylines to become more than her just wandering around, trying to connect. It’s insane that her first kill assignment was supposed to be the troubled Stevie. Training continues next episode…

We love Josh. He’s so sad from his breakup. Julia is back. Yayyyy. She left too soon. We really loved her with Aidan. Sadly, she’s hanging out with Josh. We liked their interactions though, especially the scene where Julia told Josh that she came to Boston to find him. These two are believable as exes who would have made it if not for the supernatural. It was a bad time to have this conversation since Josh is already feeling guilty about destroying Nora. We were also happy to see Josh’s cool sister. She looks like a prettier version of Tina Majorino (not that Tina Majorino is unpretty).

Aidan and Suren’s plan to kill the orphans was insanely clever. Legal documents can kill vampires, eh? We kind of hope Suren’s torture of Henry kills Aidan’s love for her. She’s a sick, vengeful puppy. We think Aidan should have stayed to watch and support though, so that he could make sure Suren didn’t kill him. In all the drama, we wish there were more lighthearted moments and more happy roommate scenes. Sometimes this show feels too intense, and we like dark stuff, as you know. This was a good episode though.
Episode grade: B+

When I Think About You, I Shred Myself- Mi casa su casa, Skinless Henry. Gross! And poor Henry. Aidan’s devotion to his son was admirable, but it’s a shame that he had to brainwash two innocent women in order to feed Henry. It was better than forcing them to touch something they thought had no skin though. By the end of Aidan’s dark season, will viewers still like and root for him? Watching Henry feed on them was really sick. Henry is just as bad as Suren. Aidan needs to kill both of them as soon as possible. We got some much-needed background on Aidan and Henry as civil war veterans. Best of all, no one had a doofy mustache.

From the start of the episode, it looked like Julia was trying to get back with Josh. Friends first, lovers second. We can’t believe they had to attend a sexual harassment seminar together and that they sat next to each other. Talk about awkward. We liked Josh’s dead friend until he possessed Josh and slept with Julia. That is going to make things soooo complicated. Poor Josh ... after all he went through with Nora and his sacrifice in giving up Julia. If you loved her, you wouldn’t rape her or hurt her by making her think Josh wanted her, dude. As much good, emotional history as there is with Josh and Julia, we still want her with Aidan more. They were really sweet together.

At the beginning of the episode, we were like, “Sally is a ghost-hunting ghost now! Whoopeeeeee! Now her storylines might be as interesting as Josh and Aidan’s. We hope she loses her hesitant attitude soon and just becomes as bad ass as we know she can be. Will the pleasure of shredding make her evil though?” We love Sally, as a character, and often feel for her. We think the actress does a good job. But it is high time for Sally to have something real to do. Then when we found out the reaper was lying and evil, we were happy about the surprising twist, but sad that it threatened Sally’s possible storyline well. 

Then there was yet another twist. There was no reaper. Sally is losing it. Oh no! We love that this was foreshadowed in the first season. Sally is ripping ghosts right and left, her reckless actions changing her into something everyone should be afraid of, especially by the look of the previews next week. Worst roommate ever. Well, this show just got real. Where are they going to take this from here? Is Sally possessed by the dark thing or is she just crazy? We had been wishing that Aidan, Josh and Sally spent a little more time together. We guess that wish will come true in six days. We could have predicted almost nothing in this episode, and we love getting the break from Nora and the wolf sister.
Episode grade: A-
