Previously on Being Human: Nora had issues, Sally liked shiny, pretty things, Aidan showed poor judgment, again, and Josh worried.
A crunchy, twangy guitar leads us into Aidan’s voice over, as he ruefully sits on the edge of Suren’s bed contemplating about how he still thinks with his dick after 257 years. He’s justifying his poor judgment by telling us that at the end of the day, all any of us wants is to feel good, whether it’s sex or drugs, it will haunt you until you give in and let yourself feel good again.
There’s a knock on the door and Suren says it’s “room service,” but looks like a straight up hooker in a hoochie dress. Suren offers the woman’s wrist to Aidan but he turns it down remembering just how low he got when Darla handed him the knife…but we don’t get resolution on that scene because Dr. Handsome’s girlfriend, Janet, is getting some resolution of her own. As she lies back on the bed, we see Sally, who was having proxy sex with the good doctor.
Sally’s giggling and fondling the silk charmeuse (she says chiffon but Sally knows the difference) nightie draped over her pillow and Aidan informs us that nothing feels better than giving in to your inner monster. She’s acting like Sally and totally forgetting she’s not actually Janet and talks about putting on the nightie because she won’t have to wash it in the morning, and Dr. Handsome, as he did with Zoe, just lets the crazy talk slide since he’s ready for another round.
The dirty guitar stops as we see a storage facility, so it’s time to geek out with Josh. He’s with the creepy twins and Nora explaining his theory and how he plans to test it. He’s using scientific/medical language and the twins exchange plutocratic asshole looks because people with ambition amuse the idle rich. Brynn acts self deprecating by saying that Connor likes to throw money around, better at Josh than around Champagne Rooms across the northeast and…damn, that’s just too smarmy and condescending. This is why everyone hates rich people. We’re not jealous; y’all are just a bunch of assholes.
Nora’s tired of indulging Josh’s fantasy and asks how Josh plans to run all these tests and he feebly says they’ll just…pee…in a cup. Nora handles this like you’d expect a girlfriend to handle her boyfriend TMI’ing about their lives: by snotting at him, and have I mentioned lately how much I love Nora? I thought casting such a sweetly pretty blonde was counter-intuitive, but Hager’s pushed past her own prettiness (must be tough) and really created a character who’s dealing with profoundly traumatic changes to her life before she even processed the last profoundly traumatic events in her life, and isn’t necessarily handling these changes well, but in the most human way she can. By getting angry, over-reacting, getting drunk, causing scenes and pushing her wishy-washy, sensitive boyfriend away. I just want to hug her half the time.
Anyway, Connor doesn’t exactly feel the same way about Nora and patronizes her by saying he “understands” how she feels but “what Josh needs” is their patience and, bless Nora, she didn’t haul off and deck the asshole. She just points out how ridiculous their little Scooby enterprise is. Josh is awkwardly trying to say something, but Nora shuts it down with a scathing “You’re a werewolf, Josh, and you’re kidding yourself.” Josh feels like a jerk, but the twins, as is their wont, smirk.
Sally’s still lying around in bed with Dr. Handsome, watching him sleep, which I guess is a thing with Being Human. She kisses him goodbye and then, ew, we watch her leave poor Janet’s body and bad CGI makes my heart ache. Janet wakes up as Sally leaves and Aidan’s back with his voice over to tell us every monster has an addiction.
Back to Aidan, brooding. He continues that the problem with monsters giving in to their darker impulses and urges is that someone else always ends up paying the price, and, clearly he means the poor housekeeping staff at the Halloway who will have to wash the blood soaked sheets from Aidan and Suren feeding on the hooker in bed. Seriously, vampires, don’t you have any manners?
Suren’s all bloody and high and gross asking Aidan if he missed her. Aidan tries to smurf that they don’t need to make up for 80 years in a week, but Suren’s being all Drugstore Cowboy on Aidan telling him his tolerance isn’t what it used to be and to feed on the poor hooker’s other carotid artery, which he does with maximum slurpiness, then he and Suren make out. So much for sexy fun times with vampires. These two are gross. And sticky. He finishes up his voice over telling us that “When a monster sets sail for rock bottom, there’s no telling what destruction he’ll leave in his wake.”
Josh is up and in an uncharacteristically chipper mood when he sees Sally looking beat at the kitchen table. He mocks her by asking if she had a “rough night” then explains his joke because he’s not just a geek he’s also a nerd. He goes off on a tangent about how Jager bombs are banned in parts of Australia and blahblahblah. Aidan comes down and Sally lifts her head up, looking like crap. Aidan and Josh are momentarily struck mute. Sally wonders if it’s really that bad and Aidan jokes about her face color-coordinating with her “snuggly cardigan.” Sally lolls around wondering what the other menacing vamps would think of Aidan’s penchant for talking like Tim Gunn but Josh just wants to know what a ghost could get up to that would make her look like she spent the last week living in a dumpster.
Sally gets a louche grin on her face and says she had fun. Josh points out that they’re all too tortured for fun but Sally says she’s been experimenting. With people. Even Aidan, who usually manages to make his concerned dad faces away from Josh and Sally is all “Whuh..huh?” Sally doesn’t pick up on it so she continues that she’s actually only been experimenting with one person, Dr. Handsome’s girlfriend, Janet. Josh jokes about a certain nurse being crushed that the doctor has a girlfriend, then wonders what her “fun” was, coming up with such exciting things as dinner and a movie and fro-yo. Sally reprimands Josh for talking like an asshole but Aidan picks up the thread and asks if she’s sleeping with the doctor.
Yeah, she smiles the “gettin’ some” smile and Josh is aghast. AGHAST, I SAY! Josh points out the moral dilemma there, but Sally counters that it’s not like she’s having sex Janet wouldn’t be having, anyway, then blames Aidan for asking…never realizing she didn’t have to admit it. Oh, Sally. Never, ever learn self awareness. Aidan decides to get all strident daddy on her telling her about how possession is addictive, but Sally’s on a roll, pointing out that Aidan sure doesn’t look hungry anymore. Aidan doesn’t get a chance to lie because Josh says she’s just deflecting, prompting a classic Being Human exchange:
Sally: Eat me, Josh!
Josh: Eat you? Or the meat suit that you’re possessing.
Ha! I just wanted to preserve that. Anyway, Sally knows she’s beat so she turns on the guys and tries to guilt them that she’ll give up feeling better than she has, probably ever, and never know what it’s like to feel real again…and is that what they want to hear? Yes, but she disappears before they have a chance to say so.
Besides, she has better places to be. Like back in the sack with Dr. Handsome. Sally manipulated him to switch shifts and has the morning off. They talk at cross paths as he calls her a “single-minded career woman” and Sally’s all “sure, I’ll go with it.” Then Dr. Handsome tells her “not to take this the wrong way” (like there’s ever a right way to take ANYTHING that starts out that way) but only says she’s been different lately. This leads Sally into uncharted territory as she decides to tell Dr. Handsome about how her father took her to a fireman’s carnival when she was a kid and she never wanted to leave and that she’s never felt more alive than she does lying in that bed with him…and only then remembers that these are not Janet’s memories or feelings. Smooth, Sally.
She starts backtracking and questioning what she’s trying to say and luckily, Dr. Handsome found her blather so boring he’s dead asleep. Realizing she probably dodged a bullet, Sally kisses Dr. Handsome goodbye and prepares to leave Janet…but it’s not working. She tries a couple of times, but nothing. Oops.
Down at the Halloway and we flash back to 1930. Aidan and his unfortunate moustache with visible glue walk into one of the basement rooms. Aidan sees a guard standing in an entryway who says “He doesn’t wish to be disturbed,” but Aidan walks in to see…Henry, seriously, graphically, and borderline Showtime, in flagrante delicto, and really, SyFy. That was a bit…much. Henry pulls up his pants and introduces Aidan, “his maker,” to “the best he could do in a pinch.” Nice. The girl doesn’t even seem to hear him, though, so Aidan smacks Henry around a little to remind him that Suren’s very highly strung. Henry’s all “No duh, asshole,” so Aidan wants to know why he’d step out on her.
Henry very pointedly, and sexily, says that when Aidan made him (heh) he never warned Henry how much he’d enjoy it. Aidan realizes Henry’s his responsibility and goes soft on his progeny, practically ruffling his sweaty, bloody, hair then turns back to “the best Henry could do in a pinch,” who’s still just writhing around on the slab.
Aidan tries to talk sense into Henry that Suren was made nearly 700 years earlier and that she’s not the posh, rich girl she appears to be. She “has the blood of warriors” but Henry’s manhood is now being questioned and he says “So do I.” Henry says he was doing them a favor by showing Mother and Suren that they’re no different and Aidan rightly points out that he has a hell of a way to show it. By banging every extra in Montreal. Henry wonders if Aidan’s jus jellus, but Aidan says that Suren’s the only reason he spared Henry in the first place…but he wouldn’t have tried to kill Henry if not for Suren, so it’s kind of a wash. Henry doesn’t point that out, so Aidan tells him not to make Suren regret it.
Which flashes us back to the present as Aidan and his pasty ass and hairy thigh is spooning Suren to skirt the FCC indecency fine. There’s another dead hooker on the slab with them (at least now they’re in the basement so they can just hose off the blood) and Suren’s telling Aidan he needs to go talk to Cecilia, the predatory cop we met earlier, to deal with some bureaucratic BS. Aidan’s wondering how she’s still lucid because he’s twice her size, but she’s had twice as much to drink. She calls him a pussy lightweight or says she’s more than twice his age.
They continue their bureaucratic pillow talk and are about to test those FCC fines again when a bell starts ringing. Heh. Suren says “This had better be good”…and it’s Mother. Good? Probably not.
Aidan and Suren come into the ballroom where Mother’s waiting, both looking fresh as daisies with clean, coiffed hair and Suren even found time to put on some make up. How long did they leave Mother waiting? They share flashbacks to the massacre in 1930 but this is just prelude to Mother calling Suren a whore telling Suren she looks “fresh” assuming it’s a side effect of shirking her responsibilities. Suren busts out her best project manager speak and tells Mother that the hotel is thriving, even though no one’s ever there, and that the police force is in check.
Mother cobra walks over to Aidan and Suren, wondering about the spike in murders and, oh yeah, did she stutter when she told them to cull the orphans? Aidan gets all heavy-lidded and slurry, telling Mother they went into hiding and drawing them out has been impossible. She susses this out for the bullshit it is and asks him to leave her with Suren.
Mother starts guilting Suren about “her release” calling it a gift and an unearned privilege. Suren’s not really buying that and says it was a test, which is why she sent Aidan and brought her back to the Halloway. Mother whines that any child of hers should know how to rule. Suren snides about how Mother built her empire. Rich people problems.
Suren continues, asking Mother what she thinks Suren’s been doing since she’s been buried for the last 80 years and that she knows what she’s doing and nothing Suren does is good enough and she wants to go live with Dad. Wait. Suren petulantly suggests that Mother’s not really all that concerned with Bishop’s orphans, acting like the bratty teen she’s been for the last 700 years. Maybe burying her wasn’t a bad idea.
Mother stops her and points out that since Suren hasn’t prioritized the Culling, they’re organizing, and with all that time on their hands, they’ve learned how to survive and fight, while Suren’s busy traipsing down Aidan’s
happy trail path of mercy, and then sneers about what a pleasure it is to watch Suren get her head twisted by a man, again. With no good comeback, Suren just yells at Mother that she didn’t choose who dug her up and stomps off.
Down at the hospital and Josh is on his way, somewhere, when Janet runs up to him, frantic, telling him she’s “stuck.” Josh is all “Why do the crazies all seek me out,” but says he’ll call psych for her. Heh. She stops him, telling him she’s Sally but he doesn’t believe her, so she tells him his name is Josh Levison (I thought it was Radcliff?) and that his favorite Star Trek movie is Search for Spock but he lies and says Wrath of Khan to save face. Realizing that only a good friend would know such a shameful secret, Josh makes a Josh face when he realizes Sally found a way to really fuck up this time.
Josh rushes her into a hospital room to figure out what they’re going to do, and Sally speed talks about how she was looking for Zoe but couldn’t find her then grabs Josh’s forearms and gets distracted by how hairless he is. Josh assumes this is an attack on his manhood but turns into her buzzkill brother, pointing out that she said she was going to stop. Sally just gets all “Duh, I lied. Kill me. Oops, can’t. Dead already.”
Then they get into a fight over how wrong it is, and not for the reason’s you’d think. Josh is offended because Dr. Handsome is…on an amateur jai alai team. HAHAHA, ew. Sally doesn’t see the problem since he’s from Connecticut. Josh finds the buried lead and reminds her that he’s also human and thinks she’s Janet. Sally tries to blame cloudy judgment from the rush of being able to feel an intimate connection for the first time in a long time, but Josh tells her she’s lost all judgment and she’s just a junkie. He guilts her some more, wondering if Sally plans to possess Janet forever, but before Sally can say anything, Dr. Handsome shows up to drive Josh’s point home.
Befuddled as always, he wants to know what Janet’s doing at the hospital then asks Josh if they’ve met before. This opens up the nerd floodgates and Josh metaphorically craps himself trying not to be awkward and Sally steps in saying she just asked him where Dr. Handsome’s office is. He doesn’t have one and Janet knows that, duh. As Josh goes to leave, Dr. Handsome wonders why Jally’s not at his apartment since she’s supposed to meet his mother, and this draws Josh’s attention. Dr. Handsome offers to walk Jally home and Josh’s head nearly explodes but he pulls it together when the doctor leaves.
Connor’s down at the hospital to visit Nora. She tries to send him off by telling him she has real medical procedures to do, but she grossly underestimates how much disdain a rich person can absorb from the riff raff. He tries to “bond” with her over her skepticism but she Occupies© his ass. He redirects her righteous anger with the classic rich person maneuver of pretending they earned their wealth and you can, too! Only he pretends it’s all about the wolf. Nora continues that Josh hates the wolf and just wants to be normal again, and she doesn’t want the creepy twins taking advantage of him. Connor, proving that no matter how bad Josh or Aidan get, they’ll never be half the asshole he is, tells Nora that she’s not afraid they’re going to take advantage of Josh, she’s just afraid that if he does find the cure, he’ll make her take it, too. Then he sashays off like RuPaul told him to.
Dr. Handsome, who’s supposed to be in surgery but go with it, is still in his apartment with Jally explaining how this is better without his father. Jally’s starting to get twitchy, so Dr. Handsome tries to calm her down by saying that this was the better way to meet his mother because it’s casual and whatever, there’s a shadow creeping over his dining room table, freaking Jally out. It’s the carbon emissions ghost and Jally starts talking to it, telling it to stay away from her. The carbon emissions ghost plows into Jally, slamming her into the wall and knocking Sally out. Janet has a whoosh of Sally flashbacks and, finally, Dr. Handsome has a stronger response than befuddlement and comes over to see if Janet’s okay. She says she is but looks shaken.
Still pissed from Connor’s visit, Nora’s day takes a turn for the worse when her abusive ex, Will, shows up at the hospital. Nora’s freaked out to see him but he tells her he saw her at the hardware store the other day and then at a bar the night before. Nora’s being tweaky and nervous, so he accepts that he’d probably not want to talk to him, either, and he wants to apologize and tell Nora he’s changed. Nora says they’re not going to “do this.”
Before they can talk any more, Josh comes up and sees she’s upset. Nora introduces Josh to Will and smash cut to Josh yelling at Nora about how could she let him near her again. She didn’t really have a choice, Josh, he showed up unannounced. But rational thought isn’t anyone’s strong point when his abused girlfriend’s abusive ex-boyfriend comes back, so I’ll cut him some slack. Nora says she doesn’t want to feel like that anymore, but Josh wonders like what? Justifiably threatened?
Nora doesn’t want to talk about it and Josh mistakes her reticence with forgiveness and loses his shit, telling her one two minute, “hat in hand” conversation and she’s ready to get over the past. This tweaks every one of Nora’s own control issues and she asks him if he hears himself, and mocks that he’s supposed to be the “nice guy alternative.” She tries to calm the situation by saying they’re on edge because of the full moon, but Josh isn’t in the mood to calm down so he snots that he’ll be so much more ready to discuss her “psycho ex-boyfriend” during a waning moon, then storms off.
Josh goes down to the storage facility to get mindfucked by the creepy twins. Brynn’s all “We’re angry, too. He attacked one of us,” but Josh is getting super possessive and says she’s not theirs. Connor douches over and tells Brynn that Josh is right, it’s Josh’s place to avenge Nora. Then he gets into Josh’s head about how easy it would be to find Will since he’s a contractor and that every night Josh spends with Nora, he can see the scars Will left behind and that maybe Josh and Connor really are different because Connor couldn’t live with that. And since that’s twice in one day that someone’s questioned Josh’s manhood, his mind’s made up.
Will’s working a construction job when Josh and Connor show up. At first, Will’s all “Hey, Josh, right?” and trying to be friendly, but when Josh slams him into the wall framing, Will turns it out that Nora used to like it a little more blue collar and that she’s working her way up the only way she knows how. Klassy.
Josh tells Will to say one more thing about Nora, but before he can, Josh uses his wolf strength to throw Will across the room and starts kicking the shit out of him. Connor’s enjoying this side of Josh and joins in. Like all good bullies, Will realizes when he’s beat and gets meek, again, saying he just wanted to talk to Nora, which only makes Josh grab a wooden plank to bash in Will’s head, but Nora shows up to stop them, looking like she’s actually concerned for Will’s safety. Nora’s angry with Josh and yells at him to leave and Connor actually cracks what appears to be an honest human emotion when Josh leaves but Josh just pushes past because he’s still Connor.
Josh is home, reliving the beating he gave Will and beating himself up for losing control like that, when someone knocks on the door. It’s Janet and Josh assumes Sally’s still possessing her. He’s in no mood to indulge what he thinks is Sally’s folly, so he asks if she managed to single-handedly ruin some poor woman’s life. Janet’s not really listening, she wants to know if Josh knows her and wonders why she knows their house. Aidan comes down and calls Janet “Miss,” which is a cute, anachronistic touch for someone who’s 257 years old, asking if there’s anything he can help her with.
Josh isn’t nearly as courtly and yells that she’s Sally and she’s stuck in her “fleshy pleasure sack” and needs their help to get out. Sally shows up on the stairs and says “Oh crap,” so Josh and Aidan can see her, while Janet’s just staring around the house trying to figure out why she recognizes it.
Janet’s living Sally’s memories and says something dark is coming for her and it all started “here” as she touches the spot on the landing where Sally died, well and truly freaking Josh the hell out. He tells her she probably inverted the address and as he’s pushing her out the door telling her it happens all the time because they order a lot of pizza, she’s begging for his help before he slams the door in her face. But he remembers to wish her the best of luck, because he hasn’t lost all his manners.
Sally realizes she did this to Janet and feels guilty but Josh isn’t done pointing out how she’s ruined Janet’s life enough and that maybe this time she can’t fix the mistakes she made. Sally doesn’t really listen and as Josh gets angrier, Big Daddy Aidan decrees that Sally should go and see what she can do.
Josh can’t believe that the same person who was lecturing Sally the day before about how addictive possession is suddenly is all “let her do her own thing.” Sally swears she just wants “to talk” to Janet, but Josh has a good head of righteously angry steam going and points out that she can’t really do that since her earthly powers are basically confined to holding a spoon, sometimes. Aidan still thinks it’s Sally’s decision, and Josh really hates both his roommates.
Josh goes down to the hospital courtyard to talk to Nora. She tells Josh that Will’s fine and not pressing charges, so Josh isn’t facing jail time despite his best efforts. Then she tells him she’s not going down that road again. Finally, Josh says something and asks if she still has feelings for Will. She’s confused and a little angry that he’s making it about his own insecurities so Nora tells Josh that when she got out of the hospital after Will put her there, she just left everything behind, friends, family, because nothing was worth seeing him again.
She’s still angry, but it’s not at Josh anymore so she tells him that no matter what Will says about changing, she’ll never forget what it felt like to be that helpless and, that wolf or no wolf, Josh is not the guy who beats up a bar full of people. She tells him she loves him and his lower lip is all twitchy and it’s still on the safe side of schmaltzy when Nora says she has to go back to work and that she’ll see him at the storage facility. As Nora walks to the entrance Josh stops her to tell her he loves her, too. She smiles at him and I’m sure this is the start of their completely functional relationship.
Oh yay, back at the Halloway. Suren’s bitch-packing a bag and whining about Mother being gone and if that mook could find the orphans, Aidan should find them, too. Aidan tries to be all Mr. Sensitive, but Suren’s back in “royal” mode saying that the Culling should be their main priority because Boston has “potential” and they shouldn’t have to worry about Bishop’s delusional urchins. She says that regardless of what Mother said, this is what Suren wants, too, and if Aidan refuses her one more time it’s all over. And by “all” she means the creepy, bloody sex.
Then she asks if he still wants to be ‘free” but he weasels that it’s more complicated than that. Suren’s all “Waaah, you big baby. If I don’t take care of this shit, Mother’s sending me back to ground and probably never digging me up, so if you can’t trump that, we’re going.” Aidan admits to knowing where one of the nests is, so Suren makes out with him as a thank you for being so easily manipulated.
But this just sends us back to 1930 and his stupid moustache. The ballroom is full of people and Suren comes downstairs in a lovely white gown while Mother’s wearing a turban. Bold move. Mother tells Suren to enjoy the evening because it’s her last in Boston. Mother’s bored, now, and Suren’s gotten enough “experience” so she needn’t stay. Suren says that if she’s experienced enough, she’ll stay on her own. Mother laughs a laugh that she’s probably used for the last 700 years to cut down poor Suren and tells her she doesn’t think Suren will ever be ready to go off on her own, but there will be other towns and other “Henrys” and maybe at some point Suren will find one that’s appropriate. Suren kind of proves her mother right when she storms out of the ballroom like a child.
Making a beeline to her suite where Henry’s having his way with “the best he could find in a pinch.” Suren catches them and Henry tells the woman to leave then lies to Suren that she was just “something that caught his eye,” and he was planning to feed on her with Suren and was, I guess, biding his time until she came back upstairs. Suren’s all “Bitch I’m crazy not stupid,” and asks how many other women there have been. Aidan comes into the suite and Henry asks Aidan to back him up that Suren’s the only one he “wants.” Aidan just broods, but he also might have gotten some of that moustache glue on his lips and can’t speak. Could go either way. Suren runs out of the room. Henry tries to talk to Aidan, but when he realizes that isn’t going to work, he just books it for the door. Heh.
Aidan chases after Henry and says “I warned you,” proving my theory about the moustache glue wrong, then headbutts Henry down the stairs. Henry still sasses back at Aidan about how Aidan’s been hot for Suren for months so Aidan slaps Henry like he’s Erica Kane.
Suren runs down to the ballroom and sees Henry’s little tart with her friends. The tart gives Suren a smirk and we cut back to Aidan and Henry as Henry throws some weak ass punches before Aidan just yanks his arm out of its socket and threatens Henry to never come back to Boston.
Back in the ballroom, Suren snaps and superspeeds over to the tart and rips open her throat before any other vampire in the room can stop her. Aidan’s too busy choking Henry to stop it and Suren tosses the dead tart to the ground, dripping sticky blood all down her pretty white dress while the ballroom has a surprisingly mild response to watching someone getting her throat ripped open.
Aidan senses what’s going down in the ballroom so he sends Henry off and superspeeds downstairs. Mother goes all Joan Crawford on Suren, telling her she exposed them all, and as Suren suppresses the vampire, Mother says she’s left them no choice. As Aidan reaches the ballroom, mother orders her minions to strike up the band and lock all the doors and NOW the humans are freaking out.
Back from commercial and to the aftermath of the massacre. Mother tells Suren that her weaknesses have banished them all back to the shadows. Two vampires carry Suren off, screaming, while Mother tells her she’s to be punished and that maybe a century is enough for her to reconsider her failings. Suren actually begs Mother not to ground her (heh) and Aidan looks nauseated, but that could be because of Suren, or Henry, or having to massacre all those people or, really the foul combination of blood and moustache glue he’s been huffing.
Sally’s over at Dr. Handsome’s apartment to watch Janet acting bugnut crazy and drawing. Sally tries to apologize but Janet can’t hear her. She sees that Janet’s drawings are just black blobs so she goes over and realizes Janet’s drawing the carbon emissions ghost, only she’s called it “Reaper.” Dun….DUUUUUNNN!
Nighttime at the hospital and Nora’s walking home, to get ready for the change. Brynn’s literally lurking in the shadows and sneaks up on Nora when she walks past. CREE-PEE! Nora snots that Brynn should be gutting Bambi in some enchanted forest, but Brynn says she’s been thinking about Nora. This should be good. Nora tells her to make it fast, so she cuts straight to the mindfuck. She’s had the benefit of generations of wisdom and it breaks her heart that there are wolves, Nora, being robbed of that kind of acceptance. She says she sees the questions on Nora’s face and she thinks she can answer them.
Will’s working at the construction site, but he doesn’t even have a claw lamp or generator so what does he plan to do? He sucks as a contractor. He hears something outside and we hear Nora in voice over explain how she started stalking Will just to see what he looked like, now, but she’s been stalking him for a while, almost every night, just to watch him.
Will’s getting freaked out, but Nora continues that she has this urge inside of her and she knows it’s her wolf..and Will points his flashlight at where he hears the noise and see wolf paws…OH NO! Brynn’s encouraging Nora not to push the wolf down, and Nora’s desperate to know what the wolf is and what she wants because she’s been counting the days to the full moon.
As Will sees the wolf’s shadow and muzzle, Brynn takes Nora’s hand and tells her the wolf knows and she just wants to run free. Nora used to be a level-headed woman and would have run screaming from this loon in the first season, but she’s pretty much still turned around about being a wolf so she listens to the nutter…as we cut back to the construction site where Will sees three very gross-looking monster wolves descend on him. Ouch.
Aidan takes Suren to Sapp & Sons, which has been abandoned since he killed Bishop. He tells her it was the only home the orphans knew and when they see all the dead rats lying around the garage they realize the orphans were using it as camp recently. Suren conveniently leaves to check the other rooms so Aidan can hallucinate seeing Bishop at his desk (SQUEE!) then hear Henry tell him the orphans got word he was coming.
Aidan’s all “the hell?” but asks if Henry’s been living with the orphans. Henry says he is an orphan and some annoying emo singer starts up. I’m sure the romantic vibe was unintentional as Aidan starts welling up from the emotion of seeing his pretty, little progeny after 80 years. Suren breaks up their reunion quickly to tell Aidan she didn’t find anything. Aidan runs over but Suren notices he’s acting weird and wonders what it is. He flashes back to sending Henry off and Suren getting sent to ground so he does what he always does and tells her it’s nothing. Then the song gets super whiny and shrieky and now it’s a duet that even Aidan thinks is overkill and he leaves.
Josh wakes up in his storage unit the next morning and rushes over to Nora’s unit to see if she ever showed. Which she didn’t and now he’s standing around an empty storage facility in his boxers with a sad wondering where his girlfriend is. Well, she’s lying in the middle of the woods naked, covered in dirt and blood…and sandwiched between the creepy twins. Rather than freak out and run, as the annoying emo duo yelp and whinny about being skin and bones, Nora just smiles a smile creepier than either of the twins. Yikes.
So, yeah. Nora doesn’t hate her wolf nearly as much as Josh does. And Henry’s back so Aidan can be good and tortured. Sally’s dealing with the fallout of what exactly it means to be Sally and I can’t wait to see Bishop come back again, even if it’s just as an hallucination or flashback. Everything’s better with Mark Pellegrino.
