Missed it? Watch it! Because, here be spoilers...
One of my favourite moments from Being Human season 2 was when after a night of being hunted by the purebred werewolves, Aidan just walks up to that snarky sod Connor and shoots him at pointblank with a shotgun loaded with silver bullets. I don’t know why, it just made me laugh in a morbid way. Well now, we all know every action will have a reaction; for example, you kill a werewolf and hand its body over to a bunch of vampires who then mount its head on their wall, the reaction is the werewolf’s pissed off father will come looking for revenge.
The other action to reaction in last night’s episode is Sally: bring a ghost back to the land of the living, have her make out with a guy she used to be into in her previous-previous life, and boom! The reaction is he dies. (Though the conclusion to the problem presented at the end of last week’s episode, ie: Did she just say Stevie Nicks is in her? was uncomfortably haste. Can we assume that action will also have a reaction down the road?)
And then there’s the vampire flu – saying that out load just doesn’t seem right – and our newly shaven, yet forever tormented vampire is finally free of the politics of vampire society but forced to be resourceful with getting a clean food supply. Enter (again) Henry who offers up his human [clean] girlfriend to help Aidan through this 15 month hungry strike. Reluctantly, Aidan (and the girlfriend) agree until Aidan finds out his dinner is actually a prisoner in her own home, shielded from any germs or viruses to ensure she never gets sick. Aidan’s moral high ground is a shakey one, but he decides to let her go much to Henry’s chagrin.
Overall, another great episode that is setting the stage for the rest of the season, probably moreso than the premiere did. We have our vampire flu, a vengeful purebred werewolf and a cursed reanimated corpse. These actions are waiting for their reaction to explode!
And before I close off this recap, can I just say:
Please note that whenever you have an inkling that happiness is around the corner, it’s not.
