Being Human "Of Mice and Wolfmen" Review: Zen and the Art of Werewolf Maintenance

Being Human S03E09 “Of Mice and Wolfmen”

Aidan flashbacks that kind of made sense. Nora inching ever so close to being likeable again. Josh getting in touch with his inner-wolf and not being a wuss about it. Sally finally eating that freaking mouse. There was so much to enjoy in “Of Mice and Wolfmen” that even though the cure for the vampire flu left me slightly disappointed—ONLY slightly—I’m thrilled that the season appears to be righting itself and returning to the path to awesomeness. 

My issues with the werewolf blood curing the vampire flu actually have nothing to do with the cure itself. That’s pretty cool. It sets the vampires and the werewolves up for some interesting interactions in the future—like Blake feeding that stalkery wolf to her merry band of sick and starving vampire pals. OMG that was sweet. But there are some itty, bitty little details that could use some smoothing over, like why no one figured this out before—particularly Pete, who claimed to have some vampire buddies himself, and who seems really into trying new things and solving all the problems. Is Aidan the only vampire who's ever accidentally noshed on werewolf blood? If Erin’s blood from a few weeks ago acted as a booster shot, then do vampires have to keep dosing on werewolf blood to maintain their immunity? If Erin’s blood gave Aidan the extra oomph he needed to beat the flu, then shouldn’t Nora’s have, IDK, neutralized the flu before it even hit his bloodstream? Or something? 

At least they didn’t go the Aidan-beats-death-because-true-love route, which is where I thought we were heading with the mushy kissy-face flashbacks to Aidan’s wife. She took the vampire thing REALLY well. Maybe she’s related to Max? I was braced for the inevitability of Aidan eating her, but maybe that’s next week. He and Kat are jumping right into their epic romance now that he’s all flu-free-the-way-to-be and we all know how Aidan’s romances work out. Best-case scenario, she grows old and dies and he continues to wallow in his immortality. 

But you know what? This was a FUN episode and we needed fun. We also needed almost-zombies. ALMOST-ZOMBIES, YOU GUYS I AM SO EXCITED. Sally finally ate the mouse that'd been teased in every promo ever all season long and found her death breath and rotting flesh instantly restored. However, she also found herself lingering outside a pet shop gazing longingly at the cute kitties and puppies with one thing and one thing only on her mind: FLESH. 

Nick assured her that there was nothing morally wrong with subsisting on stray animals and the critters that inspire normal people to call an exterminator because humans eat meat all the time and honestly, when he put it like that, I was all aboard the brains train. But then he made the leap to chowing down on human flesh and ate Zoe. BYE ZOE. MISS U. 

I really hope she makes an appearance as one seriously pissed-off ghost in the future. Of all the deaths Being Human’s extensive ghost population has featured, being eaten by a semi-zombified boyfriend is definitely one of the best. 

Sally, in a rare case of the insights, identified the slippery slope to Night of the Living Dead laid out before her and decided to stop contemplating the taste of fresh Fido/let herself waste away, essentially dying (again) and restoring the natural order of things. She went from undead party girl to wise old soul real fast—and while I had a hard time wrapping my head around it when the first hints were dropped earlier this season, even with Kat currently occupying Aidan’s heart-shaped spotlight I felt like the Sally/Aidan vibes were coming on a little strong in “Of Mice and Wolfmen.” Aidan was surprised by her decision, but seemed to really respect it. Dude knows a thing or two about going cold turkey. 

Sally wasn’t alone in being oddly zen about her apparent fate this week-- after some brief shots of him angsting over his fresh werewolf scratches (that REALLY looked like they needed stitches, I mean c’mon, half the house is occupied by medical professionals, somebody help him) Josh followed the new guy Pete’s advice and meditated to “meet” his wolf. Initially, it was a bust, but if at first you don’t succeed, wander around the metaphysical forest of your mind again. Pete claimed that getting to know his wolf was the only way he was able to accept his condition and continue to live life on his terms, and given Josh’s positive reaction to seeing his own wolf, perhaps this second round of the curse will be a better experience for him and, by extension, for us as viewers. Pete’s philosophy is simply a gentler take on what so many of the wolves we’ve encountered in the past have told Josh: The wolf lives inside him, it’s an extension of him, a part of him. Unlike vampires, plagued with their depressing immortality and literal thirst for blood, and ghosts who are... well... GHOSTS, the werewolf curse only has to be a curse if Josh lets it. Pete called his wolf his friend. Nora has found strength and confidence in her wolf. Even dead/undead/MIA Ray embraced his wolf and found freedom during his monthly change. He refused to let it stop him from having the mundane, normal life that Josh craves for himself. 

And finally, we have Nora. Touched by Aidan’s willingness to sacrifice himself for her, Nora has decided to be nice to him again. At least her frantic efforts to make amends compliment her overblown anti-Aidan sentiments from earlier rather nicely. She’s not a hypocrite! She’s just fickle! 

Yeah, I know that’s not much better.


What did you think of this episode? 



NOTES


– Does anyone else think Aidan cluing Blake in on the flu vaccine was a bad move? I mean, I get that he wanted to save his species and all, but still. 

– Mimi-Siku had some good ones this week. I loved that he referred to Kat as a muggle. But my favorite of his lines was this one, directed at Nora: “Why do you insist on befriending every stray wolf you come across?” PREACH! 

– Werewolf flu cure: epic win or epic fail?

– I still think Bubble Boy’s a goner.

– Pete is super awesome. So is he going to die or is he going to turn out to be working for Liam or something? I just assume there’s an unhappy ending waiting for Pete because I like him and I’m not allowed to have nice things.

I loved this episode in part because it sets up a vamp-wolf war that's been hinted at but never realized. Up to now, we've had the vamps going off on wolves when they find them just out of...fear, contempt, the natural need to feel superior? But now, let's say you have vamps hunting wolves for their blood 25 days out of every 28. Then you have a couple of days before the full moon when the wolves get strong and fight back. Street battles. Yeah. THEN...imagine a pack of wolves hunting vamps together on the night of the full moon and the vamps in hiding because they're overpowered. Even better, imagine the McLean family, led by Liam, leading the pack. The potential is freaking awesome.

Okay, this was by far the most enjoyable episode of "Being Human" this season. Excellent and FUN!
-I think it will definitely have some unpleasant repercussions in the future. Though, knowing this show, this might end up waiting until next season.
-I LOVED Josh in this episode. And the stuff he kept coming up with this episode were very him.
-I put the cure as an Epic Win. It was unlikely enough to be plausible that very few, if any would have figured it out, and just likely enough that this band of merry misfits just randomly happened into it to save one of our main characters.
-I'm with you, I think Bubble Boy is still a goner.
-I LOVE PETE!!! Don't kill him!! I want him to just continue on his merry way for a while, maybe stopping back for an episode or two next season. Only because, while I would love to see more of Pete, if I wish for any more involving Pete, then I fear he will end up dying.

Somehow I had nothing to say about this episode, but I just finally caught up with Sunday's series finale of Being Human (UK) and I am amazed that they pulled out of their nosedive and ended it beautifully. I shed a tear. I have those.

They better not go all True Blood and find out the the girl Aidan is knocking boots with is actually his great great granddaughter or some such. It seems to be going there, and that would be SUCH a blatant rip off...as well as, can we all say "EW"?

Meh, I don't know if it was a rip-off. An immortal realizing that he just made out with his great-great-etc. relative has been done before. And in True Blood's case, I believe it was just a quickie.

Actually, since it all happened so fast on True Blood I thought it was going to play out into something more. Like in Season 1 we learned Bill only inherited his "estate" back because the law said if a vampire has no living descendants then it could get its old estate back. Well, they showed him with a descendant so I thought they were going to take his place away and give it to her.

I thought the werewolf blood cure was obvious but I thought Josh would research the disease like he did with werewolfism and discover the cure. I have always been suprised by the lack of all out werewolf/vampire battles in this show. Hopefully now we will get some. I wouldn't have told that awful vampire woman about the cure. He should've kept it to himself and made buttloads of money selling the cure. I think all of the semi zombies are eventually going to return to their ghost states. So, if Nick killed Zoe then at least they will be together as ghosts and will eventually walk through their door together. I loved Pete but I agree that his future sees dim. It is definitely not a coincidence that Kat is a history buff. I just hope that they discover the truth about them being relatives before they have sex. I would really like to avoid bile rising in my throat. I don't get all of these Nora haters. I love her. I also think that she and Aidan had to be enemies so they could overcome it. It will make their alliance that much stronger when the great werewolf/vampire war starts. At some point I think Nora will risk her life to save Aidan. Bubble Boy is becoming so boring. Turn him or kill him - I no longer care. I would be way more interested in seeing what would happen if he were scratched by a werewolf.

Don't forget Sally agreed to give her soul to the witch, so she can't be going back to being a ghost. I'm sure she'll find some way around it though, but I'm surprised Sally is willing to let herself die knowing her soul belongs to the witch. Wouldn't you want to stay alive as long as possible?

Yes I thought of that. But, ultimately the show is about a vampire, werewolf and a ghost. That is how I knew Josh wouldn't stay a human for long either. Sally's happy ending will arrive when she is finally able to go through her lost door. I don't know about wanting to continue living if it meant eating live flesh. If there is anyone I wouldn't worry about it is Sally. She has overcome so many obstacles like interacting with our world, defeating her ex, defeating the reaper, escaping purgatory and so much more. Giving her soul to the witch was bad but who wouldn't have done that to save a loved one?

Yeh, I was kind of thinking that Josh would start reading his journals, perhaps to see if anything different would happen this time since he was infected again... like antibodies or something.

And then realize that werewolf blood messes up Vamps because it puts their immune system into overdrive. And thus would kill the virus. So he'd ask Nora to give Aiden a pint.

But instead, it was just a happy "Cool, THAT happened, nice to know"

I liked her, and like her again.

But there was that stretch of bitterness towards Aiden that grew quite suddenly. Being cautious about a Vamp meeting your college buddy is one thing, constantly throwing barbs at him for what he did is another. Especially since for a while, whenever Josh was trying to defend Aiden and say Erin attacked HIM she would do the equivalent of covering her ears and yelling "NA NA NA I CAN'T HEAR YOU" It was only for a couple episodes and started just a little before the whole Erin / Aiden attack.

My favorite bit was when she was disgusted and surprised that Aiden had semi-recently killed 3 people. When, you know, she killed 2 even MORE recently.

It's like Lana Lang on Smallville. I liked her in the beginning, and the end. But there was a period where she got all bitter towards Clark Kent and just acted like a straight-up-*itch because he wouldn't tell her "some" secret (she didn't know what). Just about every scene was her putting him down. So she hooked up with Lex Luthor, a man who she KNOWS repeatedly lied to and manipulated her. But she would say "at least Lex is honest with me"

Loved the epi. Glad Josh didn't wimp around forever. I was glad Aidan got better, I was freaking out about him being sick. Remember he did tell crazy ass Blake that it only took a few sips of wolf blood for the cure...I think he was warning her there better not be any over kill on the wolfs...and that she and any of her buds better stay away from Nora and Josh. Now the Sally thing I don't know...see I liked her better as a ghost...plus I hate zombies and zombie show...But anyway this season is starting to shape up..I was afraid it was going down the crapper...which made me sad, because this is one of my favorite shows...

I love how Sally is always wrong - even when she is wise and stuff!
So she stops eating freshest meat, facing the consequence to decay and then ultimately die so her soul can be eaten by a witch who in return gets younger for that? Haha! Oh Sally!
Reply
Flag
Nah, I don't think it's a normal younger-feeding thing. Unless a pact means a stronger ownership and thus more of a life-boost.

Otherwise she would just leave Sally dead and take the souls from Sally's victims since it looked like (to me) that anyone Sally accidentally killed became her property.

There is probably more going on: like perhaps owning Sally's soul will mean she can control her to do stuff. Or perhaps an actual agreement between the two means something more: like immortality or something.

I don't think Zoe's actually dead, I think she'll either end up getting away or Nick will find a a way to gain enough composure to stop himself from eating her... I guess we already know the condition isn't transmittable, since Nick had already gotten toothy with Zoe before the attack at the end.. Although I never really expected it to be transmittable in the first place considering the nature of their zombism.
I'm so glad they figured out a way to cure the vamp flu annnnd hopefully turn the tables against Liam and his merry band of fanger-hatin' wolves... Its on, and like someone else mentioned below, I don't feel one bit bad about (most of) the wolves getting their comuppance for trying to exterminate the vampires..
And Josh, well, I'm glad he's trying to make peace with his inner wolf, I dig it.. Nora of course did a huge turnaround on Aiden...saw that coming...she's a bipolar hypocrite, but oh well. I just cannot wait for it to come out that Liam killed Erin...won't Nora really feel like a stupid biatch then??
Great episode, def best of the season...Keep it up Being Human!

Even though I realize they couldn't just have Sally and Josh hanging out with Aiden the whole episode, they had to do their own things, but in reality if my friend had only a day or two left to live I wouldn't be having dinner with some stranger, I can understand Sally needing to do what she was doing but Josh should have been at his friend's side, not entertaining guests.

This might be a weird theory, but I think Kat is one of Aiden's distant relatives. The comment about how one of her ancestors was a hero in the war he fought in, and how she kind of looked a lot like his wife were some big tip offs. Curious to see if I'm right about this one.

Not that weird: lots of people are considering it. Heck, the instant they interrupted her before she could say WHO her descendant was (and never returned to it) I figured it was either Aiden or someone he fed on (perhaps the FIRST guy he fed on).

I can see that happening, I can't believe I didn't think of that though with all the flashbacks and American history talk I should've saw it coming.

I agree with most that the werewolf blood being the cure is pretty cool. I was convinced Henry would come back (perhaps from reading all of these site's comments!) but was pleasantly surprised with the plot twist. I do wonder about Aidan telling Blake, not realizing it'll probably cause an all out war and I thought the vampires were all but extinct. Where did Blake's group come from? Regardless, I think what's coming is gonna be awesome except for the death of Pete, who is a great character and given how specific Aidan's instructions were to Blake, will probably get killed soon. My guess is that Nora will spin off against Aidan again when that happens. As far as the zombies go, it is very cool. Part of me has hope that Zoe somehow survived since we didn't actually see her die but again, her as a pissed off ghost could be fun too. Doesn't Sally or Josh have to confront the witch soon to ask her about all this zombie stuff, since she brought Sally back in the first place? At any rate, I agree with all of you that this was the best episode this season and definitely pushed the season in a great direction!

I thought that Kat's blood was going to end up being the cure for Aidan. When Aidan had asked her how she got interested in American Revolution history and she said it was because she had a relative who had been a war hero, I thought she may have been talking about Aidan. She just obviously wouldn't have realized that Aidan was him. When they started doing flashbacks of Aidan's wife and son, I thought maybe they would reveal that Isaac had had a family and that Kat was Aidan's great great great great granddaughter. And that drinking the blood of a blood relative would be the cure. That certainly would have put a damper on their romantic feelings....ick.

I had the exact same thoughts as you! And I ruled out the werewolf blood earlier because it seemed too obvious to me - I mean really?! No vampire tried something crazy like werewolf blood in a moment of pure despair? Ever?
So blood from a direct relative - even distant - seemed harder to come by for me and therefore more believable as a miracle-drug. Huh, we were wrong. Silly us!
But I think we're right about Kat's heritage anyhow.

I wasn't as excited by this episode. I mean, it was a good, solid episode--I'll readily admit that, but we shouldn't be this ecstatic about things being *as they should be* (I think).

Two things I really liked, though.

1). Pete is absolutely awesome! I would *love* more of him.

2). Josh and his wolf, meeting face to face--it was adorable on every level. I'd've liked for us to see them meeting again, too.

Under the circumstances, I'd been expecting Aidan to try 2nd round werewolf (Josh) or Zombie blood as a last ditch supernatural effort to survive.

Kinda wish with all the medical staff around that someone had researched vampirism and how the disease was actually affecting them to try to find a cure, or even to create a supply of safe blood with testing for the anti-bodies.

Ditto. Science, even pseudoscience, is arguably even more interesting and entertaining than magic and mysticism. Josh is meant to be some sort of near genius and has notebooks full of werewolf research yet no one in the entire group thinks to perhaps find a hematologist or virologist to consult on the issue, or even pick up a microscope themselves. The lack of logic involved in problem solving for this group requires even more suspension of disbelief than the illogical solutions they present to the audience. Occasionally I view these characters and find myself without compassion, even think they deserve some of their misfortune.

In fairness, this flu was unknown in the vampire community as it was just a mutated regular old flu bug. There had apparently never been such a plague in their ranks before, so I can forgive them for not looking it up. I doubt any of Josh's books mentioned that their blood was good for what ails vampires.

At first, I thought the resolution to Aidan's flu happened too fast and was kind of unsatisfying, but now that I think about it, it would have been boring if they gave him a long, drawn-out recovery. So I'm happy about it. The rest of the episode was excellent, and I love the idea of wolf blood being the cure. I think this is going to make things pretty exciting for vampire-werewolf politics as the season/series goes on -- werewolves have been hunting vampires all season, and I can only imagine the vampires are going to be seeking some epic revenge.

I thought the episode was probably the best of the season thus far.

The idea of wolf's blood being the cure is actually pretty interesting. Call it the Syrup of Ipecac of the vampire flu. Which really? Is the cure anymore ridiculous than the Vampire Flu? No. But the wolf's blood causes a vampire to ooze blood from their various orifices so one could presume that it would also expunge potential toxins from them as well. So at least it kind of makes sense.

Nora is still annoying. I don't care that she is playing nice with Aiden. She still wanted him dead for no reason and she still is a fool. And silver bullets.

Sally's was kind of my favorite. The realization of havingto do what she is going to have to do and her dealing with it was probably the most hilarious aspect of the show.

Aiden and whats her name. I think that is interesting. I don't particularly like her character. But Aiden needs other Vampires in his life that is the giant douche that was Henry.

Good over all episode.

In her defense, at a weak point in her life she had Liam selling her on the kool-aide that Werewolves are morally right and Vamps are morally wrong... and that Vamps should all die.

I mean, he's not wrong. The Vampires are kind of a larger danger to humanity in general since they feed on humans day-to-day while Werewolves just loose control. Sure, the vamps tried to keep the death-toll to a minimum (for practicality) but all-in-all, more dangerous.

That being said, she sided with Erin a little too quickly. That girl lied about JOSH, the guy that was trying to help her out in 10 different ways: taking her in from cruddy life, helping her with wolf stuff, etc. And she told Nora he just came in and started punching her rapey BF for no reason what so ever.

Personally I'd think it would've been more believable if the cure had been the garlic tea especially because it was shortly after drinking it that Aiden had his seizure. It would be funny if that was actually the cure and everyone's munching on wolves but still getting sick.

Aiden has never had Nora's blood. Liam gave him "some old whore's blood". So, the only werewolf blood he's had was from Josh and Erin. I'm glad he's cured, but bummed Henry didn't show up.

I loved this episode. My lifelong love for horror has made it so that I'm very rarely truly frightened. But the ending gave me the heebie jeebies for a good little while. That's a very good thing.

I'm still not into Aiden's romance. I just don't care about it one way or the other. I don't know why.

I LOVE Pete, and I'm glad that he had good insight for Josh about his wolf. I hope Pete will stick around, but I'm not allowed to have nice things, either, so scratch that. He's kind of a wanderer anyway, so he's unlikely to become a regular. But it would be nice if he could show up now and again. But while we're on that, why did Nora change outside? Isn't she usually in the storage container?

I think Sally's decision is a good one, but I believe hunger will get the better of her.

Liam actually says "some whore's blood." (although I'm sure Nora haters could make jokes about them being the same thing) If it had been Nora's blood, Aidan would've had the "bleeding eyes" reaction and would've been too sick to do anything but keel over in the scene where they escape from the dungeon. He was pretty messed up by the end of that episode, but that was from being tortured by Liam, and there was no blood in his eyes. Also, after Aidan recovers and they're talking about times that Aidan has had werewolf blood, he says he's only had it twice, from Josh and then from Erin.

I know. I watched it three times, all with closed caption. I always heard "old whore's blood", but a lot of people from the beginning were saying it was Nora, and I COULD hear it that way because he doesn't really enunciate it well. But it really wasn't her name; it was was "old whore's blood".

Such a fantastic episode. So many great things happened: Nora stopped being a bitch, Aiden got over the flu, Josh stopped being a vejay about his wolf and Sally ate a rat. What more can you ask for?

As far as the cure... I agree that it was good and bad. It didn't make a lot of sense, maybe if he had drunk wolf blood right before his seizure it would make more sense. Either way though, the fact that werewolf blood cures the disease will open up for some tension between the two species which should be fun.

I'm also curious about Josh's wolf. Does the fact that he saw his wolf as being a beautiful, normal wolf just because he was coming to terms with his wolf or was it that he's now a different kind of wolf since he's been turned twice?

I was really surprised that Aiden told black about the cure but I guess he was just trying to keep his friends safe by helping to eliminate the threat of Liam and his crew while gaining allies.

About Nora... I told you so people. I knew she would come around and even bringing Kat over... how nice of her. That was a pretty big gesture after she practically bit Aiden's head off because he was talking to her...in public.

I am glad we got Nora back on the redemption path...I did think the werewolf thing was a little convenient, but it also kind of makes sense. If I remember correctly, Aiden was on a blood strike or something and Josh convinced him and then I think Erin's blood was probably the last blood in his system. I don't know if it was a good idea to tell Blake, I might have gotten her to commit to a hierarchy and whatnot before she was told. I am kind of surprised that he didn't send them all right after Liam. I am conflicted about Kenneth.

I like that they finally figured out a way to make Josh fine with his condition (and seriously, I think Pete was lying to them about his age, and hate to bring this up, but that probably would have come up with Ray or Liam).

Oh the zombie storyline will be fun...did you notice that Nick had zombie eyes? It seems Robbie does too next week. Good for Sally for making a stand, but it will be interesting, does she remember where her soul will go? I am actually not that worried about it because it seems the witch uses the souls to reanimate stuff...I am betting Sally might be stronger than whoever the witch uses.

Aiden initially got Josh's blood when Sally's shadow side, I forgot his name, too over her body completely. Aiden and Josh fetched Zoe to help, and the entity locked all the doors of the house intending to kill all of them. Josh was scheduled to turn that night and was afraid he would kill Zoe. And Aiden was just starving. The hospital was monitoring the blood so he was having to visit blood whores or catch and release. Josh insisted that Aiden take some of his blood to stave off impending starvation and to keep Aiden from being tempted to snack on Zoe.

No, she will just go back to blaming Aiden. I keep expecting her to start in on how he killed Erin, but Erin's blood saved him.

The down-side to Sally's acceptance is... instead of just becoming a "Ghost" again she's sacrificing her soul to the witch. Which may be equally bad: she may become remote-controlled to kill / reap / torture / etc.

If it was just "accepting death" then I could see Aiden being supportive.. he's been there. But I don't know if he's aware about the Witch Ownership thing.

Though I have to wonder: why has she progressed so much slower than the other two?

While I agree that the werewolf curse isn't as bad as the other stuff... it's still a curse.

For starters: as we saw with Pete, you age quickly. 39? The dude looked 50.

Then there's the fact that it seems that Pete isn't 100% behind the wheel when wolfed-out, it's still "Gordon" calling at least some of the shots. So you still have the fact that unless you take special precautions you might wind up killing innocents or loved ones. That's fairly curse-worthy.

I'm not saying it's completely sucks-ville... a positive outlook and tons of precautions will reduce the down-sides... but they're still there.

Hopefully this time around Josh will embrace things more and "live with it" much like Aiden did.

It was nice to see a friendly Nora again... she wasn't raging at Aiden and everyone else for no reason but back to her friendly old self. Though I don't know how much of that was because Josh is more of an equal now as opposed to a snivelling human.

My guess: Blake is going to capitalize on becoming "The Savior of the Vampire Race" to make a real play for power... and probably become antagonistic against Aiden because she'll have some real loyal followers who probably have no idea that Aiden gave her the info. So his threats against her will be worthless. She can be a real *itch, and has shown how power-hungry she is.

I had a similar thought about the "booster" to the point that the Vamps will have to continue to drink werewolf blood like every month or something to stay clean which means a lot less wolves. I doubt Aiden is the only one that EVER accidentally drank werewolf blood, so it was probably the fact he had it so recently.

Nora and Josh will probably become upset that the wolf population is dwindling as a result, perhaps after their new hippie friend Pete (or whoever) will be a casualty. Thus reigniting Nora's hatred of vamps and/or Aiden. Though really, the wolves were fine with hunting the vampires to extinction so it's only fair play.

I doubt Blake with go against Aiden, more likely she will keep trying to get him to join her. She's already tried to get him to join her before and I'm sure she'll try again to gain more power.

Yes, that's what Blake will try to do. But, she's a baby vamp. Aiden is much older, wiser and stronger. She'll be dust pretty soon.
