Welcome to the penultimate episode of Being Human and I already don’t want next Monday to come. I’ve grown accustomed to the monsters. This week’s theme is Josh’s fear of the dark coming back and the duality of our existence as rendered through the metaphor of eclipses and how totally screwed up the supernatural world becomes during one. Because Being Human is deep like that.
First up, Aidan. Although giving him every reason to turn on him, Henry’s still loyal to his not-at-all-gay-for-him Daddy, Aidan, and helps him survive the goon squad Mother sent and Aidan returns the favor by stabbing Henry in the gut. He did it to save Henry’s life, though, not because he sucks at being a vampire sire. Then they have a good laugh at just how gay they are so Henry can head back to Boston and Aidan can continue on his fool’s quest to make an 800-year-old, spoiled princess with no impulse control happy. While Aidan takes off to talk to Atlee about hiding out with the Dutch, which I’m sure is Suren’s idea of heaven, Suren lolls around the motel feeling hungry and sorry for herself. One of them will be very disappointed when Aidan comes back from Pennsylvania.
Sally’s still trying to make amends for all the awful things she did when she was posing as a tall, skinny Balkan guy with a penchant for shredding other ghosts. Her new target is Zoe, who’s not nearly as easy to fix as Janet. Thanks to Sally, Zoe’s decided to turn her back on the entire Ghost World (even Steve Buscemi?), but Sally’s never been one to take a hundred noes as an answer so she stalks Zoe long enough to be with her when the eclipse begins and shredded ghosts start reappearing. Zoe explains that eclipses bridge the different planes and Sally gets the bright idea to bring Zoe back to the house to see Nick, forgetting that she also shredded Danny in the house. One of those four is happy by the end of the episode.
Finally, Josh. And he’s getting hit from all fronts. First, he still has Nora’s advice buzzing in his head that he needs to kill Ray. He learns Ray’s life has taken a decided turn for the much, much better. He’s a landscaper and living comfortably with his wife and son. Then he gives Josh the sage advice to be honest with Julia about being a wolf. Of course, Julia is back to being “all in” with Josh and is even meeting up with her best friend, Chelsea, who curses the day they met Josh, and wants him to join them for drinks. Because Josh handles conflict and awkward situations well. Josh is contrite and they all seem to have a good time until Julia excuses herself so Chelsea can
drop an anvil warn Josh about hurting her again. With her work of spooking and guilting Josh done, Chelsea leaves so that the eclipse can come and totally screw everything up. Then things end horribly for Josh.
