Network Blurb: The new season of Being Human picks up 15 months after the events of last season’s riveting finale which ended with Aidan buried alive as punishment from vampire leader Mother, Sally lost in a state of limbo, and Josh’s plot to kill Ray, his werewolf “maker,” endangering Nora instead.
My review: You can clearly see the potential for this season in this episode, but barring Aidan’s plight and the introduction of a witch named Donna… the first episode paled in comparison to last year’s season-ender.
Aidan’s story arc seems to be the one to watch this season. We see a creature that has spent 15 months in a coffin, starving but refusing to die. What saved him was this alternate universe he created in his mind that allowed him to interact with the two people he loves the most, Josh and Sally. He is pulled out of his grave by a guy trying to make a quick buck by selling vampire blood. We come to find out, from this guy, that Aidan is practically the last of his kind. All the other vampires (including the dreaded Mother) have died or have fallen ill due to the dreaded flu, yes you heard me right. I guess the avian flu kills vampires. Who knew? Any who, one of the Amish vampires, who is infected, comes and busts Aidan out so he can save both himself and his brothers. Unfortunately, there is something different about Aidan’s blood (remember when he took a bite of Josh? Could that have changed his genetic makeup?) because this one brother took a bite of him and nothing happened and we saw poor Aidan crash into a pole and in a ditch.
Josh and Nora spend their time looking for a psychic to get Sally back. We also learn that Josh killed Ray in order to protect Nora in doing so he got his humanity back. This leaves Nora as the Werewolf and she is handling this very well, where Josh has become an utter basket case that makes me want to change the channel every time he is on. On the upside, they come across this witch named Donna. She is the real deal and with the assistance of Rays’s heart they successfully resurrect Sally. The thing is, she is not a zombie and she is not human. The caveat is that she must not cross paths with anything from her past.
Sally’s storyline was kind of lackluster because as expected she is trying to make her way back to Josh and Aidan. Yet, she and her two friends keep hitting a brick wall. Until Donna comes into the picture, once the door opens for Sally, Sally forces her friends to walk through the door. Yes, that means these two guys are waking up (as zombie looking creatures) in their coffins, this will end terribly.
The coolest part of the episode involved Donna. At the very end of the episode she finds Ray, but what is she going to do with him?
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the season gets better and better with each new episode.
As the year progresses we will update this section with new books that we think you will like.
