Being Human, season 3, episodes 5-13

Being Human ended its excellent third season this week. As promised, it was lighter in tone than the dreary, but still entertaining, season two.

Liam was a good Big Bad, but Donna was better. She's creepy as anything. Is she taking Sally to hell? We are getting a little sick of Sally traveling between planes and getting stuck, but the scary Donna factor makes us more willing to follow Sally anywhere. A highlight of the series had to be Sally's flesh-eating zombie phase, especially when she brushed her hair and teeth. Remember the toothbrush poking through?! Eeeek!

Another highlight was Max. That's one persevering, loyal guy. He stayed with his girl even when she was rotting from the inside out. That's above and beyond. The only problem with him was his hilarious ghost mother, Linda.

We like that Sally and Josh spent most of the season alive and cured. We knew the show had to take them back to ghost and wolf state and only hoped that it would feel natural when they did it. It did. Josh's scratching went organically with the Liam plot (and hopefully made him a more bad ass wolf), and Sally definitely had to die in order to take out Donna. It all worked out, and Sally even got a better outfit to haunt people in.

We weren't digging Erin or Kenny. They were both brats. We did like that Kenny was a half-breed though. There had to be some lasting consequence to the virus after Aidan so easily cured his sickness.

Pete the werewolf is one of the only nice people our characters have ever met on this show, so of course he had to die. It was better than the old hippie turning out to have a sinister intention, but wow was that sad. We liked the idea of an easygoing werewolf friend for Josh and Nora.

We loved Nora's reaction to Erin getting killed. While she was irrational in blaming Aidan and should have trusted Josh, we love how much she cared. Eventually, Nora did decide to call a truce with Aidan until she had more facts. The anger was just her initial reaction. A cool head prevailed later.

If we had known Nora was going to be a main character on the show this long, despite not being one of "the three," we would have allowed ourselves to become attached to her earlier. The love interests just come and go so fast! We loved Nora's protective, motherly streak and we're glad things between her and the vampire worked out smoothly.

Sally's brother, Robbie, wasn't used to his full potential. He came and went with almost no emotion. It was nice for Sally to sacrifice her soul to keep him alive, but the relationship seemed stale, so we weren't touched.

The siblings were dropping the ball this season. Emily's reaction to her brother's werewolf curse was cruel and almost unbelievable. She kept harping on about the "murder," even after Josh explained that it was defense and then said that she couldn't take "his world."

She should have showed Josh the grace that he gave her when she turned out to be different than expected, as he rightly pointed out. We don't think that's how we would react to a sibling sharing a supernatural secret. We might lecture him about his friends, but we wouldn't walk away angrily and make it all about us.

Most of the Aidan flashbacks were a little dull. His turning could have been explained with a few lines. His time with his wife was obviously important, but everything before that could have been abbreviated. We forgot how much we love Aidan though, because his character was so lost last year. When he told Liam that he killed Brynn, we were so proud.

We love the relationship between Aidan and Kat so far, but he crossed a line when he had Blake erase Kat's memory. He hasn't told Kat he's a vampire yet, but that's going to pale against the news that his wife Susanna is alive. Woah. Did not see that twist coming. Speaking of Blake, we don't like her. She reminds us of Suren, who was the worst.

If Nora is dead, we are going to be pissed.
