Welcome to the season finale of Being Human and Whoa! When the season’s theme is “Temptation is a Beast” I didn’t exactly expect everyone to be happy roommates like a 21st century, supernatural version of Three’s Company but I never expected this season to end here.
But first, where are all the roommates? Sally’s despondent over all the havoc she’s wrought and pain she’s caused. It was so much easier when the Reaper was a separate ghost. She involves herself in Josh’s little plan which requires her to possess Ray’s wife which brings back the Reaper and sends Sally further down the rabbit hole, seeking out her mother. She wants her mother to shred her so she can go to limbo to pay penance for all the ghosts she’s shredded. Rina may not have been mother of the year but she can’t just kill her dead daughter and damn her to limbo. Their disagreement about whether or not Rina should shred Sally leads Rina to have a moment of grace which brings on her door. This isn’t the good news it normally is because now it gives Sally options so which one does she take? I was shocked.
Meanwhile with Aidan, proving there’s always a worse parent than you out there, he decides he’s going to free Suren from Mother’s grasp by staking Mother and Henry’s going to help. Henry’s all “Hold up, I don’t think so.” Aidan tries to guilt him by pointing out it’s Aidan’s blood that saved Henry, conveniently forgetting that it was Henry’s act of misguided bravery that saved Aidan from being staked by the French soldier but nearly got himself killed in the process thereby needing Aidan’s blood to begin with. Foolishly, Henry is still loyal to Aidan despite having roughly 3,294 reasons to tell him to fuck off. Aidan’s plan goes about as well as every other ridiculous Aidan plan, and Henry’s hung up in the cellar like a side of beef while Mother and her goons take Aidan.
Of course, there has to be a worst of the worst, and that’s Mother. Suren may, in fact, be her biological daughter and she’s giving Suren the final ultimatum. If she can stake Aidan and finally rid them all of “the heretic” she will become Mother’s successor. If not… Things go bananas after that, but Mother needs to die.
Finally, Our Josh of Perpetual Guilt. Emily stops him from going to Julia’s funeral since all of Ithaca is basically blaming him for everything from the Kennedy assassination to global warming to the current war on women’s reproductive rights so he’s not really welcome. They bond in his car about how Josh’s life has gone straight to hell and he can’t even come home anymore but it’s stopped by a call from the hospital. Nora’s been admitted and they called Josh since she hadn’t changed her emergency contact information. She knows about Julia and she sees Josh is wracked with guilt but when he says he couldn’t kill Ray and lift his own curse while leaving Nora a wolf, she deus ex machinas that if he kills the wolf that turned him Josh’s entire bloodline is saved, meaning Nora’s curse would be lifted, too. She doesn’t want him to kill Ray, though. Not for her.
But that’s like waving a red flag in Josh’s face and he musters as much resolve as he can, which still involves a lot of vibrating and shrill screaming, to kill Ray once and for all. End it so he can live a normal life. Aidan agrees to help while Josh and Sally cook up a rather clever plan to lure Ray out to the woods but as with all things Being Human it all goes horribly awry when Nora shows up trying to save Josh from himself.
So who’s left standing for season 3?
