Listen to our on air discuss of Being Human US on Tuesday at 8:30pm EST on Blog Talk Radio. Come back each week for Dan’s blog as well.
I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Being Human US, ‘(Dead) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.
Liam McLean finds his son Connor’s corpse mounted in the final stronghold of the Dutch, killing them all in sorrow and proclaiming he will find the murderer. Back at the brownstone and after seeing Nick and Stevie off on their new lives (yes, they’re both back alive and in their own bodies), Josh and Sally receive a phone call from Aidan who has managed to survive the car crash. Aidan is surprised both that Sally is corporeal and that Josh is no longer a werewolf. However, he later realizes the ends that they had to go through, including the taking of another life and the use of blood magic.
Aidan, however, feels the need for blood and goes to find his old source Tracy, who reveals she caught the flu virus that is killing the vampires. She instead sends him to the black market to find pure blood. As it is the night of the full moon, Josh plans on dropping Nora off at the storage unit, but she convinces him to go take Sally out on a night on the town, as she knows Josh sits outside the unit watching over her. At the hospital, Liam seeks out Nora. Josh takes Sally to a bar where she indulges in her newfound humanity, and she tries to make Josh do the same, when he reveals he wants to propose to Nora. Sally congratulates Josh on his choice until she is recognized by an old high school friend Trent, despite the fact Donna warned Josh that Sally could not see anyone from her old life.
Sally tells Trent that she had to fake her death to escape Danny, and not even her family or her estranged brother Robbie know. They hit it off well, leaving Josh to contemplate the proposal alone. Aidan has found the black market source of blood, but it is actually a trap set by the werewolves who have taken over Boston. Henry saves him, and brings him home to meet his girlfriend Emma who has been free of the infection. Henry has Emma feed Aidan to tide him over, until Aidan realizes Henry is keeping Emma captive and under his compulsion. Aidan refuses to feed on her and leaves.
At the storage unit, Nora prepares to lock herself in when Liam arrives, intent on finding out what has happened to Brynn, even though Nora says she has been out of contact with her for over a year. Liam locks both of them in the unit, knowing that his wolf will judge Nora’s wolf’s character. Sally takes Trent home, but he feels a bit of apprehension that he cannot explain, so he takes his leave for the evening. That night, Sally and Aidan catch up, and they seem to enjoy their company until Aidan feels weird about Sally’s body.
The next morning, Aidan has let Emma escape, angering Henry, but Aidan promises that they will find a new way to survive. With Sally awake, Josh talks to her about proposing to Nora when he opens up the storage unit, despite Sally’s protests, but their discussion is cut short when they hear sirens outside. They investigate and discover that Trent is being loaded into a body bag and being sent to the morgue, with Josh realizing this was why Donna warned them about meeting people from the past: they die as a result of the blood magic. However, Josh still goes to the storage unit, only to find it empty, the door torn like paper, and a large trail blood leading out of the unit.
It was a brilliant episode that saw a whole bunch of brilliant reunions. The story developments were brilliant, and the inclusion of Xander Berkeley is terrific. I can’t wait to learn more next week.
Thanks for reading.
