This puts the second season at the half way point and looking back, there doesn’t seem to be very much forward momentum. Things have happenedsure, but I feel like the story was progressing much quicker last season. Right now, the house is one gigantic hot mess. Aidan especially. Josh is having to make some tough decisions and Sally realizes that her mortal life wasn’t what she thought it was.
There was no Nora in this latest episode and it seems like the twins are doing their best to keep her away from Josh. The repercussions of their feeding frenzy last week comes to a head when two detectives show up at the hospital and question Josh about Nora’s ex and her whereabouts. He tells them that he doesn’t know where she is and that he has no idea what they’re talking about, so they proceed to tell him how the ex was killed. Josh is a smart cookie and puts two and two together. He goes to the Brynn and Connor’s house, but they won’t tell him where Nora is.
Josh informs Aidan of what happened and asks for his help, but Aidan is currently dealing with his own demons and, in a bit of a dick move, blows Josh off. Frustrated and worried that Nora is going to get busted, Josh seeks out Cecilia, the cop that Suren and Aidan turned. He asks her for help in making the case against Nora disappear. She’s reluctant to help a wolf, but he offers a price she can’t resist…taking down the purebreds. She still seems apprehensive however.
Worried that the cops are closing in, Josh heads to the storage unit to get rid of all of the evidence of his and Nora’s transformations. The two detectives show up and want to know just what he’s using the storage unit for. Things are about to get ugly when Cecilia shows up and does her Jedi/vampire mind trick on the detectives. Josh doesn’t have to worry about them anymore thankfully.
A man true to his word, Josh collects Hegeman’s rifle that he had hidden and heads to the twins’ house. He tells them to pass a message on to Nora for him and leaves. From there he goes to meet Cecilia and gives her the rifle so that she can take down the twins. It’ll make her look good since she’s a new vamp and it will take care of a problem for Josh so it’s a win-win.
Where to start with Aidan. He’s a damned mess. He knows exactly where all the orphans are hiding and after seeing Henry last week he heads to their hideaway to look for him. He tells one of the gals there to spread the word that he’s looking for Henry. In the meantime, he decides to drink himself stupid and ends up having visions of Bishop.
Aidan spends the bulk of this episode in a sort of selfish stupor and Bishop hangs out with him pretty much the entire time. Bishop’s purpose? He basically follows Aidan around trying to convince him that he needs to find and kill Henry. Easier said than done because Aidan can’t find him. That is, until Henry shows up on Aidan’s doorstep.
All of this leads to a confrontation at the pair’s old feeding spot where fisticuffs ensure. Aidan gets the upper hand, but can’t bring himself to kill his own “son” so he lets Henry go. Bishop sits by and watches and tells him that a maker can’t kill his offspring, yet the offspring will always try to kill their maker. He also tells Aidan that he’s never been more proud, or scared for him than he was at that moment.
Sally gets a surprise when Josh informs her that her mom is in the hospital and getting ready to die. Sally shows up and sits and watches her dad who just waits at her mom’s bedside. Finally her mom passes and the two are reunited in the hallway of the hospital.
Sally’s joy at being reunited with her mother is short-lived however, when she sees her mom getting frisky with the ghost of their former neighbor. It comes out that this neighbor, Jerry Patterson, was the man who her mom was having an affair with when he passed away. Shocked, Sally begins to question everything she knew about her parents relationship and wonders if any of it was real.
In an effort to make peace, Sally has her mom and Jerry over for “dinner” which Aidan and Josh both attend as well. The tension is thick and Sally is a bit jaded about the whole thing between her mom and Jerry and she doesn’t make it a secret. Her mom on the other hand isn’t happy that Sally is still living in the house that she was killed in.
So, that about sums up this latest installment. I will say that it was really nice seeing Mark Pellegrino back as Bishop. My biggest irk with him last season was the horrible hair he had, but he looked rather dashing this week. I was a bit surprised by Aidan’s attitude toward Josh this week. I get that he’s dealing with some stuff, but there’s no need to be an ass about it. I was also surprised by the very ballsy move that Josh made in dealing with the twins. He basically just sanctioned their extermination. He’s not that type, but then again, it all has to do with Nora. This is one decision that will have major fallout however. Looks like Nora is back next week so it’ll be interesting to see where it all goes.Tags: Being Human, Being Human Mama Said There'd Be Decades Like These, Being Human Recap, Being Human Season 2 episode 6, Mark Pelligrino, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Sam Witwer, SyFy
