Being Human Review: Things Will Never Be The Same

by at . Comments

Can you believe what Sally went through with Danny and the exorcist this week?!?

It was fantastic when Sally inhabited the exorcist's body long enough to talk to Danny and for the exorcist to know what he did to Sally. I was happy to finally hear a human say Danny deserves what he gets. I wonder if we will see what that is.

Going Dutch Scene

Elsewhere, the elders were a nasty bunch of old curmudgeons. They seemingly refused to change and adapt to the new world.

I would have encouraged them to quickly go back to their cocoons. They were whiny, uppity and downright annoying. Why haven't the modern vampires figured out a way to dispose of them by now?

Marcus was such an idiot, a brown-nosing jerk who really thought by spilling his guts to the Dutch that they would kill Bishop and put him in charge. For a split second, I almost felt sorry for the dolt.

Apparently, Bishop had a plan similar to the one executed by the vampires on True Blood. He wanted to increase their numbers and bring them out into the light. I didn't see that coming. It was a pretty good idea, actually, but he was foiled again. It turns out that when you don't share your plans with your minions, you are sometimes left all alone.

How incredibly gross was it that the big dinner for the Dutch elders consisted of a pregnant woman (compelled, of course) tied to a table so they could eat her twins. Really? I don't even know how to feel about that scene. It was far more than I needed to know. But the final outcome of the dinner was classic. Made me root for Bishop. He gets more fun to watch every episode. He really is a crazy nut who wants to rule the world.

It was a groovy fight scene, and the music played during the action really worked. I love when things turn out so much differently than I expected, and this was an awesome way to wind up the story of the Dutch elders. After Bishop killed a few of the elders, Aidan (literally) turned the tables on him and saved Heregen.

Every minute of this episode left my mouth hanging open.

Just as Marcus was set to kill Aidan, Rebecca stepped in and killed Marcus. Yes, I know we all watched this together, but it was worth repeating because just when my mind was set that she was unforgivable, her redemption was set in stone.

Unfortunately, she wasn't set in stone, and turned to dust. I was finally looking forward to her future with Aidan, how they might together try to bring peace to the vampires, but it wasn't meant to be. Instead, she became a tragic heroine of epic proportions.

I loved the way Josh handled the announcement of Nora's pregnancy. It happened much earlier than I would have imagined, and he made the event so comical. As usual, Josh said the wrong thing at the wrong time when he really wanted to say the opposite. Fear has a way of jamming your own foot down your throat. In spite of their still burgeoning relationship, it grows stronger and more realistic each week.

If I didn't know better, I would have said this made an awesome season finale. We still have two episodes to go, though, and at the pace they're taking the show I cannot wait to see what they hold. It's become a cliche, but that doesn't make it any less true:

"Going Dutch" was a game changer.

I was so done with Rebecca before last night. I agree completely she redeemed herself x 100. I was actually bummed when Aidan dusted her. I really wanted her to stay, who knows what might have come next. On that note, Aidan is truly in a fml phase. =(

I've started watching the US version of Being Human since the season 3 finale of the UK version, and I have to say it's growing on m! I wasn't expecting Nora to be pregnant so early! I really love the the US version is wondering further from the plot of the UK version. And what the heck is up with Sally in the next episode? Can you say CREEPY? I love it!

Being Human Season 1 Episode 11 Quotes

So greedy. And they think we're uncivilized.

Bishop

Edler Vampire 1: They're not chained.
Elder Vampire 2: Were they compelled?
Bishop: There's no need. They're here by choice. Some because they hope to be diners some day and some, they have issues.
