A man walks into an Amish hovel… and kills all the vampires therein for killing his son, a werewolf’s head hung on the wall like a portrait of suffering. He’s Liam Mclean, the father of Brynn and Connor, who befriended and de-friended Josh and Nora in season 2. He’s clearly gruesome and dangerous, and aims to avenge his son’s death.
But back to happy land: Aidan is freed from being six feet under for a year. Josh is no longer a werewolf. Nora is a werewolf but doesn’t seem bitter at all. And, last but not least, Sally has been reanimated into her body. She is ghost no more. Talk about a pilot that changes the status quo. Then again, that’s always been BEING HUMAN’s calling card: going places, no matter how uncomfortable, crazy, weird and painful.
Along with Sally, Stevie and Nick are also back to life. Nick’s already snogging Zoe, and Stevie promises not to kill himself again, aiming to lose his virginity. Aw. They leave us to our main characters, who are just as shocked as we are at the new developments in their lives. There’s a lot to catch up on. Aidan’s happy to see Josh happy, Sally is raiding Nora’s closet, Nora is entirely too happy to spend their first night back together in the storage facility.
Aidan’s sabbatical has saved him from the sickness that has been ravaging vampires, who are dying from tainted human blood. Aidan tries his old haunts to find clean blood, to no avail, until he tracks down a “blood” dealer. He doesn’t get to try the blood because a pack of werewolves attack him. He’s weak and starved, but Henry (Kyle Schmid), Aidan’s progeny, saves him.
Meanwhile, Josh and Sally are spending the night on the town. It’s the first full moon Josh has spent away from Nora, because he’s felt so guilty and spent his nights watching over her as she changed. Sally and Nora both tell him to start living his life. Sally aims to get drunk, until “Trent” (John Bregar), a friend of her…brother, appears and recognizes her. Josh and Nora were warned that when Sally comes back to life, she cannot see anyone from her past life. Oops. Instead of running away, she hatches up a story that would explain her being alive, and aims to sleep with the guy.
**Note to horn dogs: find a recently reanimated corpse if you want to get laid. Although, judging by what happens, maybe disregard that advice.
Liam tries to track Nora down, while Sally and Trent aim to make some bad decisions, and Josh has come to terms with a big life choice. Aidan’s reunion with Henry seems too good to be true; his son has a human girlfriend, Emma (Kimberly-Sue Murray), and he’s happy to see Aidan, even after all the Mother and Suren business of last year. As always in BEING HUMAN, it is definitely too good to be true, promising another stellar season of the SyFy show.
