Join us each Tuesday as we discuss ‘Being Human’. This week we discuss ‘For Those About To Rot’. You can listen to this review HERE.
I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Being Human US, ‘For Those About To Rot’.
This week has a dual focus – Josh and Sally have to deal with zombie drama, whilst Aiden deals with girlfriend drama. Aiden has a date with his girlfriend, where she finds a book written by his father. It’s interrupted by an ex of hers, and when they get back to her place they over-share – she wants a family, and Aiden (obviously) can’t have one. This leads to flashbacks of Aiden’s past where he struggles with religion until he eventually gets a son – and how happy it made him. Aiden and his girlfriend finally sleep together, but he later wakes up outside (he’s been sleep walking) and walks home, not noticing the body of his girlfriend’s ex drained of blood nearby.
Meanwhile, Nick was killed by Zoe when he tried to attack her. Sally goes round in time to see Nick’s ghost and him finding his door. Sally can no longer see Zoe, as she’s a danger, but Josh helps Sally to get rid of Nick’s body. They realize that Stevie will be in the same boat and find him at his parent’s house. Eventually, he explains that he’s eaten his parents, and Josh agrees to kill him to set him free. Sally is upset, but is made to feel better when she talks to his ghost, before he also gets his door. Sally is shocked that his door is the same as Nick’s, and adds it to the list of things they need to sort out. Josh then goes to visit the hippie werewolf to find him being attacked by vampires. He’s attacked too, but is told he’s safe because of the deal with Aiden, before he’s knocked out.
It was a great episode that dealt with some of the questions from previous episodes, whilst also keeping the major storyies progressing nicely. I can’t wait for more next week.
Thanks for reading.
