I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Being Human US, ‘One Is Silver The Other Pagan’.
Erin continues to taunt Aidan as he writhes in pain from the werewolf blood in his system. In a last ditch effort he gives her a swift kick that sends her flying into a wall, before she falls to the floor like a ragdoll. Josh arrives home before Liam can arrive to slay Aidan, finding the horrifying scene. Erin is rushed to the hospital where she is in critical condition, and Nora is furious that Aidan attacked her, ignoring his explanation that she provoked the attack, and claims she will make him pay if she does not pull through.
Sally heads to a bistro to meet up with Bridget, who at first believes Sally is still a spirit, but is enthusiastic that she is once again flesh and blood. Nora sits by Erin’s bedside, incredulous that Aidan may cause Erin to die, while Josh tries to assuage her feelings by revealing the situation, but she does not want to hear of it, as Aidan has been a murderer far longer than Erin has been a werewolf who could possibly not know her blood’s effect on vampires. Aidan checks up on Kenny to see he has a visitor who is taking a vial of his blood, before she offers it to Aidan. Introducing herself as Blake, she tells Aidan Kenny has entered a contract with her: he will feed her for the next year, and upon his eighteenth birthday she will make him a vampire. Taken aside, Blake tries to convince Aidan to let her have her way, revealing that she knows he has killed a purebred werewolf, and wanting the best for Kenny.
At the bistro, Sally and Bridget catch up, with Bridget revealing she has since joined a wicca coven after her experiences with Sally in the afterlife. She invites Sally to join her, and Sally is reluctant until Bridget says it is now a part of her life and she wants to share it with her. As Aidan empties his blood supply down the sink, Kat shows up at the brownstone looking for Nora as a pipe has burst and she cannot find the superintendant’s number. Aidan offers to help her with the plumbing, as Nora is looking after Erin. At the hospital, Josh confronts Liam about what he has done, as he has realized Liam somehow tasked Erin with killing Aidan, and he threatens Liam to stay away from them all. Josh’s sister Emily shows up, having had lunch plans with Nora, and she realizes that Josh wants to propose to her.
At Kat’s apartment, Aidan has helped fix the plumbing, and after Kat reveals that she is a history doctoral student studing the American Revolution, particularly Massachusetts’ attempt to secede, Aidan impresses her with his (first hand) knowledge of the times. Back at the hospital, Emily has brought Josh their grandmother’s engagement ring after Julia returned it to her. Emily also bolsters Josh’s confidence, saying that she knows Nora is the one Josh truly loves. Aidan checks up on Kenny to find him highly lethargic after Blake has taken way too many vials. He confronts her, who says she is starving and this is the only way they can survive, asking for his help, as she wants to run Boston, which angers Aidan.
Kat arrives at the hospital, bringing food to bring up Josh and Nora’s spirits, and runs into Aidan, again. When Kat leaves, Nora threatens Aidan, still believing him to be trouble. Aidan talks to Kenny, again, who wants to change, and reveals Blake scares him. However, Aidan has talked with hospital security which blows Blake’s cover as Kenny’s aunt. Aidan wants the best for Kenny, not wanting Kenny to be bound to as vampires for an eternity, and Kenny reveals his ultimatum once more. Sally joins Bridget’s wicca circle, observing them try to contact one of the members’ dead husband, when Sally sees two male ghosts, revealing between the two of them that they are not the woman’s husband, try to stir things up in the group. One of the ghosts possesses Bridget, with the other one revealing he had possessed her previously, when Sally ends the pretense, calling out the ghosts and inadvertantly revealing her previous supernatural nature to them. They approach her, but she dissippates one with a candlestick and threatens the other.
Blake heads to the hospital once more, but Aidan reveals he has promised that he will turn Kenny and will not allow her to come near him. He then heads to Kat’s apartment, asking her out on a date for another day, and she agrees. Josh professes his love for Nora, not yet proposing, and lightens her mood. Liam heads into Erin’s hospital room, and as she wakens he commends her for the actions she has taken for the pack, before smothering her with a pillow and killing her. At the house, Sally tells Bridget that she needs to move on with her life, as the ghosts possessing her will only cause her to go insane. She says they should part ways, but she gives Bridget the Spirit Lock pendant to keep her safe.
Josh and Nora check up on Erin only to find emergency doctors trying to revive her, and Aidan arrives to see the trauma from afar. Blake walks alone at night only to be stalked by Liam, revealing that his pureblood allows him to attack her more easily. She taunts that there is a purebred wolf killer in Boston, without naming anyone, and he lets her go. Back at the house, Sally brushes her hair, only to find clumps are coming out. She investigates one, only to find a piece of her scalp is still attached, and she finds an open sore where it used to be attached, before calling out for Josh’s help.
It was a brilliant episode, and really stepped up the storylines that are up in the air at the moment. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Thanks for reading.
