Being Human "Your Body Is a Condemned Wonderland" Review: A Not-So-Modest Proposal

Being Human S03E08 “Your Body is a Condemned Wonderland”

Uh-oh. Sally isn’t looking so hot. That unfortunate hair-loss incident went a step further this week with the scalp rot spreading to Sally’s forehead like the worst case of undead poison ivy ever and speaking of poison ivy—do you think the rot itches? I know, slightly off-topic, but that was my primary concern during most of Sally’s sort of awesomely gross storyline this week. And brains. Nautical Nick ate a stray cat to reverse his deterioration, so he theoretically COULD have eaten a brain already. Sally moved on from potato chips to raw hamburger and I’m still waiting for that mouse-swallowing routine that’s been teased in pretty much every promo since the beginning of the season. If she’s swallowing those babies whole, V-style, then there’s DEFINITELY a brain in there somewhere. Being Human has entered the zombie apocalypse. Sort of. I mean, a mouse brain isn’t exactly a human brain, but we have to take baby steps. Sally and Nick are still people enough to feel shame over their icky eating habits, but we’ll get there.

In the meantime, precious adorable little Max came to the rescue with his makeup bag that is bigger than mine and slathered some heavy-duty corpse foundation all over his decomposing ladyfriend’s head. He actually took the corpse girlfriend thing pretty well and only bailed when flu-stricken Aidan and his (once again) werewolf-in-shining-armor stomped through the living room in a bloody mess and Sally refused to share secrets that didn’t belong to her. Aww, poor Sally.

Poor Sally. Poor Aidan. I’d say poor Josh, but eh, human Josh kind of sucked and then he went ahead and proposed to Sucky Nora anyway so full disclosure here: I totally cheered when Daddy Werewolf clawed him during Operation Save Aidan’s Ass. My only regret is all the angst we’re gonna have to wallow in as he comes to terms with being a werewolf again.


No one cares about your problems, Mimi-Siku. Except Aidan, who was totally willing to confess to killing Connor AND Brynn, in order to clear Nora’s name of whatever suspicion Liam may have had and give Josh and Nora the fabulously boring lives they’ve always dreamed of...

...or at least that Josh has always dreamed of. I’m increasingly incapable of figuring Nora out except that she’s crazypants and very good at constantly playing the victim. I mean, her entire conversation with Liam about how she wished she had a dad who loved her was, well, it was bullshit. Nora’s daddy issues might have worked better as a sympathy card if we hadn’t actually met Nora’s family earlier this season and seen how, while they aren’t exactly the Cleavers, it’s not like Nora’s actual father was beating her senseless and making her sleep in the cabinet beneath the kitchen sink every night. The Seargents were incredibly average—the low side of average, sure, but all-in-all, pretty normal. I’m sorry you got an emotionally stunted crabass for a father, Nora, but let’s stop pretending you and Erin had anything even remotely close to the same home life. Her parents were meth heads. METH. HEADS.

Now, if we wanted to emphasize Nora and Erin’s mutual crappy taste in men, then maybe that whole “WE ARE ONE” mentality might have worked, but we’ve already exploited Nora’s awful exes for werewolf storyline fodder sooo... I don’t know. I just want Nora to stop talking.

Do you think she’ll even feel bad when she finds out what Aidan did for her? I think probably, if only because the writers desperately need something to make her likeable again if they intend to go forward with the Josh/Nora marriage plot, but I’m so over her, you know? I hate when a character is so mishandled that I don’t even care enough to push for a redemption story. Josh, Aidan, and Sally tend to make their own messes through their insecurities, which is a very human trait and adds another layer to the meaning behind the series’ title and I THINK that’s what the intent behind Nora’s actions was in her quest for the perfect family and latching onto Erin as a troubled-but-fixable mini-me. I just don’t think it was done very well in Nora’s case. A lot of pieces were forced together and they didn’t all fit very well. Nora failed to come off as particularly sympathetic as a result. If the entirety of her motivation is shaped by how horrible and abusive and miserable her life was growing up, then we need to actually see it, otherwise she looks like an ass. Sure, there are more subtle forms of abuse than your standard physical transgressions, and maybe that’s what Being Human was going for in Nora’s case, but the execution just wasn’t there.

So, Sally is probably dying and Mimi is back to actual werewolf status. Things are returning to status quo over at that creepy awesome house in Boston. With Aidan infected with the vampire flu courtesy of Liam and supposedly on the fast track to certain permanent death, I think this is a prime time for there’s-no-way-he’s-actually-dead-Henry to sweep in and save the day, yes? Maybe? Are we ever going to get to the bottom of that story?

And what about freaking RAY?

Whatevs, I’m just excited this series found its pulse after the snoozefest of the past two weeks. What did you think of this episode?



NOTES

– So those hallucinations of Aidan’s dead girls are actually ghosts of dead girls? WHY? And why NOW?

– Josh “almost spilled future generations” looking at the master bath in that house he and Nora totally can’t afford. Lol, dirty.

– Aidan and Kat are kind of adorabs. When she said she had an ancestor who fought in the revolution, I was hoping it would be someone Aidan knew (it can’t ACTUALLY be him because he slaughtered his family or something, right?), and I’ll never forgive Liam for interrupting them. Nope. Never. I just want them to geek out over reenactor costumes and stuff!

– How do you think the rest of the season is going to play out?

So on Aidan...
The only reason I'm thinking Kat MAY just be related to him or connected to him in a way that may not allow them to be together is because there has yet to be a kiss. There obviously has to be something to that ancestor comment and the fact that they haven't gotten it on in any way, shape or form. So not an Aidan move.

And am I the only one obsesse with the idea of Aidan and Sally? I mean, c'mon!

Here goes: Hate Nora. I was a big Julia fan..... Josh is being a wus ok until he FINALLY rescued Aiden. YES I will stop watching if Aiden dies. Aiden needs to get better and have a nice romance. Nora needs to go but it would be satisfying to see her put in her place first since in life we don't always get to do that to bullys. Lastly give Sally a break PLEASE. She finds a nice boy finally??!! Come on BH has potential to be a GREAT show don't frustate the fans so much there has to be some happy time plateaus!!!!!

I have found that the answer to most of life's problems can be found in either pizza or ice cream. I suggest they feed them to Aiden to see whether they can cure vampire flu.

While we are pulling apart this episode, let's remember that the one previous to this, ended with Sally pulling out her hair, discovering the rotting place, and screaming for Josh. We know Josh was in the house. Did he just ignore her? Because when this ep. began, she was wearing a horrible hat, hiding her head from both Josh and Aiden.

While that family "setup" wasn't exactly "normal" (or, say, on the *good* end of normal)--it wasn't as bad as she always eludes to it being. Definitely not enough to whine about it ALL THE TIME and make everyone *else* around her feel as though they owe her some kid-gloves sort of treatment because she is so shpeshul and "broken".

ALL of this Mary Ann. I agree with ALL OF THIS!

-Yeah, so I'm totally on team Eff Nora. Like shut the hell up Nora. Like, totally you suck. Nora. Is there a team for that? Can we have our own t-shirts? She has been so insufferable the past few weeks, I don't even have the adequate words to describe it. Like, she's telling Aidan to stay out of her way, and I'm kinda trying to imagine how one does that, given she's living in HIS house. I soooo agree with the entire thing with Erin. Like, while that one time she and Erin nuzzled as wolves made me say Aww. Sort of. I never seen where they shared this bond. Like, ironically the only one Erin liked was Aidan, before she tried to go all Buffy on his ass. I agree about Nora's family. I mean...Erin had a rough life as a kid. She was homeless and in foster care and her parents were freakin addicts. I loathe when someone tries to make their relatively average home life into this horror story for sympathy. I mean Nora acts as though she grew up in a Manson family, when really her family was more like Roseanne Connor and co. Where is all of this anger and hostility coming from? Scratch that! I don't even care. I just want Nora to disappear for a while, because honestly, I don't see if there is any way possible she can be redeemed. And like you Mary Ann, I don't even care to see a redemption arc from her. I don't even care. If she disappears into the night with Liam or ends up in the Boston Harbor, I wouldn't bat an eye. She's just been so whiny and bitchy and insufferable to watch. She's also been coming across as ooc too. Like where is the rational, logical, practical, at times despondent Nora?
-I love Josh. But again I ask, why the hell does he still want to marry her? Like for realsies? He hasn't wavered on that at least once, and that has me questioning him a bit here and his thought process. It's like in his quest for normalcy he's willing to ignore everything. It honestly has me wondering if he's actually in love with Nora or if he's just in love with love, and the life, and the idea of them together, because he's afraid she's his only real shot at having that piece of normalcy that is married life. It's funny, because Aidan knows that, and he's willing to die to make sure his friend has that chance to be happy. Even if it means taking the wrap for Nora the harpy shrew. And again I say, who comes off as the better person here when the entire time Aidan encourages, supports, and looks out for Josh and Nora, and Nora would have killed Aidan a thousand times with her looks alone?
-I love Aidan and Kat. They are kinda adorable and I like watching them interact. It's different and healthier than any other chick he's been with on the show so far.
-Sally's bf is the bestest. How many guys would Spackle their zombie gf's? I do however wish he were just a bit more flexible with things. I just chalk it up to his lack of experience dating etc though. Because for them to have not known each other very long this is the second time he's found himself having hurt feelings because she talks to her friends about stuff and not him. It really wasn't her secret, well, secrets to tell. I'm guessing he'll get over it though. Nick eating kitties was pretty darn gross. So they're going all zombie now. Has me wondering where Stevie is and what Stevie is eating at this point. This is an interesting development, for sure. Also, still wondering what this has to do with the witch and raising Ray from the dead.
- Rough torture scene.Where else can they really go with Liam though? I imagine at this point, that he'll somehow survive all of this now that he's responsible for Josh being a werewolf again (THANK GOD!) and I doubt they'll go back to human Josh. Unless someone else kills him. Again, I'm hoping Liam and NOra disappear together for some daddy/adopted daughter time or something. Injecting Aidan with the flu and Nora's blood (umm how did he get Nora's blood?) is pretty brutal.
-Loved the scene with core three, battered, bloodied, and worn trying to figure out what they hell they're going to do now. That's BH at it's best. When the three of them are just trying to figure shizz out together.

Not to be a stickler, but Penicillin is for bacterial infections. Influenza (the flu) is viral, so Penicillin won't help. In fact, there are relatively few anti-virals out there.

So really, even if the Vamps could use modern medicine... there's not a lot out there to handle the flu. Most of the OTC stuff just helps manage the symptoms (fever, aches, congestion, etc.)

Spot on review. This season is shaping up to be a lot better than last season, but there is NORA. Again I say I never liked her but she gets worse every week. I really hope she dies or at least goes away, because having to deal with married Josh/Nora acting like they have the hardest lives while Aiden deals with vampire drama and Sally deals with undead drama is going to be really annoying.

My first reaction after this episode ended was, "Now things are getting interesting." Mostly because even though the nora storyline has been pathetic but aiden taking the blame for brynn will help him mending fences with Nora and get her all mad and crazy about killing Liam and that's the best part of her character, to be able to accept her wolf side.

But please save aiden without introducing henry back is what i would say. Henry is amazing and completely undead (again) but he just takes aiden away from the group onto some boring emo journey, which I don't like.

Also, can anybody tell me how is sally going to survive? I mean if she died her soul is gone completely. If she lives she has to eat brains and stuff.

Maybe not necessarily brains, but "living creatures". I mean, there were plenty of vampires in past fics who did away with human blood by snaking on rats and the like instead. It also seemed like Sally's ex-dead buddy had his rotting go away the moment he chewed on a living cat (and they made no specifics of him eating just its brain either).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who totally saw through Henry still being alive.
If you don't actually see them die on the show, then never count them out.
Maybe it'll be some weird "You have to sire someone to survive the virus" thing or "drink zombie blood." who knows.

I'm kind of glad everyone is uber monster right now. That was the whole point of the show right?

Nora needs to take a chill pill. I get that she feels like she has to take care of people (nurse, crappy family, josh) and that Erin was like pogey-bait to her desire to take care of people and she could feel all motherly because they bonded, but something there is off, and instead of grieving with her, we're not even feeling sorry for her because she's just coming off wrong.

I hope adorible (totally going to need therapy) Max comes back. He's just too damn cute to lose. Same goes for Henry.

Rest in Peace stray kitty. I totally thought Nick was cheating on... whats her name... which was why he was trying to get rid of Sally. Nope, just needed to eat animals, living things instead. Yay?

I liked Nora because I liked the idea of someone who embraced her wolf instead of hating it. I still think that is worth exploring. But her antipathy towards Aiden came out of nowhere, and her sudden love, and blindness, for Erin seemed forced. It was not believable. They are writing for drama without giving us a basis for it, and it doesn't make sense for the characters.

I love the actress who plays Nora and the fact that she's a regular cast member now, but I don't like what's going on with her character. Everything else about this season makes up for it though. It's been pretty awesome compared to season 2.

I feel bad for Josh, but I'm glad he's a wolf again. His struggle was a major part of the show, and then they just did away with it in a quick flashback in the season premiere. It'll be interesting to see how he deals with being cursed again, especially after seeing him so happy and confident without it. It's heartbreaking but such a good thing for the story.

I'm also weirdly glad that Sally can eat people to reverse her decay, but only because it will allow Meaghan Rath to continue being hot. lol

Oh, one little annoyance: I wonder why Erin's ghost never showed up to tell the gang who killed her. That seems like something a murder victim with supernatural friends would do.

Thank you! When the gore skanks decided to make the house their stomping grounds I wondered why Erin never even appeared. Do werewolves' souls not go through the same process? (And is that a bit sad or do all dogs really go to heaven?) I have a feeling if she shows up she will want to tell Nora the truth about Liam and the circumstances of her death, and I have no doubt Nora will be mum on any apology to Aiden for her horrid behaviour.

Sally's story has gone epically gross. I couldn't stop wondering if her scalp-rot smelled and/or if it was oozing pus. But the closing scene of her going to town on a raw meat binge was phenomenally cringe-worthy, shudder-inducing television. I literally gagged, more than once. If I weren't veg already, that would have permanently put me off meat for certain. Good times, keep it up. So much more entertaining than last season.

I'm so ready for Nora to die (DIE, DIE, DIE!) already. She is more annoying than Andrea and Lori from TWD, April Kepner of GA, Betty Draper of MM, Skyler White of BrBa and Daisy of Bones, COMBINED! I'm sick of her, and she has become a vortex of self-pity or worse, unmitigated self-righteousness, in every single scene. I totally bellowed, "oh SNAP!" at the tele when Aiden brought up Brinn and then she busted herself. Please Liam, find out the truth and kill her already! Or better yet, hand her over to the evil voodoo priestess to buy back Sally's soul, win-win!

Kat is very likable, but I think the foreshadowing about her Revolution Era ancestor is more likely to be one of the men Aiden slaughtered from his regiment than Aiden himself. The show is twisted, but I don't think the writers are walking that close to the edge yet.

It seems everyone is certain of Henry's return now that Aiden is infected. I sort of thought that since Josh and Nora are both medical professionals they might actually use some of Josh's werewolf research to help Aiden forestall the true death. Too logical?

No woman on television is as annoying as Skyler White. That being said, Norah's character definitely needs some work... writing work. We've seen her be sweet in the past, so it's possible for the writers to fix her character. Also she shares more of a bond with other werewolves and therefore sides with them over vamps or even humans and no one was there to witness what happened with Erin and Aiden so it was only Aidens word against Erins.
At least Norah confronted Liam about it and asked him if he had sent Erin to kill Aiden.

Erm, technically that was self defense too. How many more vampire chases was he planning after that one? I'm thinking a few. It's what he and sister did. It's what Nora probably did when she was with Brynn, until it got out of hand. It's why Nora continuously comes across as this huge hypocrite, because she's probably killed a great deal of people herself while running free as a wolf.

Nora's sheer and unbelievable lack of likability is starting to affect my liking this show. Josh and is moronic dumbed adoration of Nora is starting to become grating. Which leaves only one recourse, will somebody freaking kill Nora already. Aiden saving her by telling Liam he did it lends belief that he has caught the FLU but the FLU for him makes him a gluten for punishment. Nora isn't going to know about it, he isn't going to tell her. And Josh is apparently incapable of doing anything like saying the equivalent of "Ah Shucks, what are we gonna do, lets all try to get along". Erin was trying to kill Aiden, I know you liked her. But she was an idiot and you knew her for like 3 weeks. Get over it. Actually she doesn't have to get over it. She just needs a silver bullet.

Sally's decomposition is interesting. But her former ghost buddy not telling her he was also decomposing seemed unnecessary. Why not tell her. Obviously this has something to do with the witch. Likely they require that age reversing powder that she has. But how are they not compiling their strength, knowledge and contacts. They know ghosts and vampires and Werewolves you think they could get one over on a witch.

Ray, I imagine he is working for the Witch. I think Zombie lore came from voodoo and the witches had zombies do their bidding. So likely that is the case. Other than that, no idea where he went to.

In short - I didn't want that episode to end so soon, it was the true Being Human hour that I missed this season, it started and it ended just in matter of minutes. And my moment was when Josh come face to face with angry-daddy-wolf. I knew in my bones that something is coming yet I was also hoping it is not worst specially when Liam swing his claw, I was not only on my feet but punch in air a few times. Also I was glad Liam didn't rip Josh's arm off in the process.

Also Kate and Aidan looks good together, better then his other long-term relationships she fits him good and she know how to play him. That was very geeky-bad-a$$ move changing his mind like flipping the switch. I just hope series don't kill her off since now she made herself an obvious target to get to Aidan.

So, will Josh be some sort of better werewolf now since not just some ordinary wolf but one of the most powerful pure werewolf turned him? Will our bubble-boy help in some sort of blood transfusion (I hope I am using the right word here), getting infected blood out and get new blood in system. Lot of questions there hanging in my head and I did not want that episode to end there like that.

Nora has gotten awfully dull, as Andrea has in WALKING DEAD when you just wanna go up to them and yell the truth at them, which you wish they'd figure out already (by the way, I heard on the radio that fans actually went up to the actress that plays Andrea and yelled at her -- I am not condoning that behavior, just for the record). That's the writing, which is definitely getting a little questionable now. All of you have said it... what's going on with Ray, the witch, Liam and the intro to zombies?... It's all fine of course, but you wish things made a little more sense. When Sally agreed to give her soul to the witch, you don't think she would've asked about the fine print? As questionable as the witch had been? Bringing back Ray is fine and good but I agree that when they do bring him back, we're all gonna wanna know what he's been doing all season. And I laughed when Liam scratched Josh -- it's like the writers knew they couldn't keep Josh human for very long -- he'd just get too boring. It bothered me when the two girl ghosts were making fun of him -- there was really no reason and even they're kind of here and there for no reason. This season seems to be throwing in a bunch of crazy stuff every episode just to see what sticks. What's up with the bubble boy or the red haired vampire that's still around? And of course the witch is a huge question mark. What will her ultimate function be? A major antagonist like Mother? Oh, and even Erin seemed to be a lark... they killed her pretty quickly, as if her ratings weren't good enough, not that she was interesting -- she could've been but I think they pulled the plug before fixing that unsatisfying character. How will Aiden get over that virus? You all mention Henry, which I admit I hadn't thought about. You're probably right. He'll probably come back cured with the answer for Aiden, but of course Aiden curing himself will come with a moral dilemma, which by the way, would be just fine. I will end this tangential rant with one thing... I found myself for the first time forwarding through scenes this episode, just to see what would happen in the next scene plotwise. That happen to anyone else? Like the proposal scene. Once Josh proposed, I found myself yawning and forwarding to the end of that scene with the "let's have sex in the bathtub" suggestion which I found a little gross, frankly, not to mention out of character. But of course, with all this, I still love the show and will keep watching through whatever.

So am not the only one who's not a fan of Nora huh? Right now she is irritating the shit of me but who knows maybe she might redeem herself later on. We'll see. All I know she should be kissing Aiden feet since he took the blame for killing both Connor and Brinn and also taking the heat off of her. Glad Josh will be wolfing out again. And poor Sally, poor, poor, Sally. Can't catch a break that one. I wonder when's going to start craving brains? Well she's almost close to that point now. Her fellow zombie buddy is already eating cats. I saw that one coming a mile away but apart of me was hoping its wasn't going to happen.

I have to confess stupidity here. When they were talking about the stray cat, I thought that Sally was going to come back and eat it since Nick was denying any rotting problems. Duh,,,,

Dear (desperately lacking in creativity and imagination) writers of Being Human, the U.S. version. Please have Daddy Liam find out that Nora is the real murderer of his crazed c**t of a daughter and then proceed to him tearing that moronic, pitiful bint Nora limb from limb.

Papa wolf Liam gets at least 5 bullets in him and knife and it's like it didn't affect him at all:D I am pretty sure Josh used silver bullets and knife. WTH!?!?!?:D But I love Liam,so I am good,I guess:D

Maybe Nora had more hidden motives with Erin...uuuu:D...maybe she adopted her,so she could see,if having a kid of their own flesh and blood with Josh in future,if that could work. Being that mother is she-wolf,best friend is vampire and so on. So maybe her anger and bitchiness goes alot deeper,than it is shown.

Yeah,I wouldn't date zombie girl:D And Max only bailed,because Sally was keeping secrets again. I think,if she told him the truth,he might bail,but would come back. This time it seems he bailed for good.

I too am a little glad Josh got scratched but sorry for his character in general. He worked so hard to become fully human only to have that work completely erased by that bastard Liam. I think this will put Nora and Josh back on level playing fields to me.

I think Nora will be redeemed, which she definitely needs to be, cause she acting like a total ass to Aidan. How can she not see just what a SOB Liam is?!!! Definitely looking forward to how she'll come full circle.

Sally and Nick are sooo cool together. Nick took the undead news quite well by the way lol!! Good man!!!

I keep trying to like Nora, I really do and it is entirely the BBC's show fault because Nina was my favorite character. I know they tried to make Nora too like Nina at the beginning and now feel weirdly conflicted over it. I don't know if it was actually a full moon since Liam can change whenever, but I kept hoping Nora would walk in and see Aiden before he healed (though I also agree it was important it was just the three of them then).

I am weirdly hoping being scratched by a purebred wolf is different than just a random one, like Josh might actually become interesting if he starts getting affected by your standard werewolf human symptoms (more powerful senses as a human, more effective immune system, and stronger) just so he has something to do beside whine.

Poor Sally, but I am glad Nick is back at least with the same issues. I love little Max and I think he will deal fine with knowing everything, but I agree with Sally, those are the boys' secrets to tell.

Liam can't change whenever he wants. Remember when Liam's kids were talking to Josh about how they wanted to find a way to turn whenever they wanted and/or stay a wolf. Also there was a cut scene of the full moon right after Josh asked Norah where Liam changed. That's also why Norah wasn't around when Josh and Aiden got back.

I thought they were looking for a way to just stay as a wolf permanently. I figured it was a full moon, just was hoping it wasn't so we can get Norah on a redemption path sooner than later.

Though it does beg the question... does being cursed into a werewolf TWICE result in anything special / different?

Logistically speaking, I imagine no. Otherwise in the fight against vampires the werewolves would use that to their advantage by turning some weakling / disposable schmuck so they could have a bunch of double-turned-wolves.

But still, it does lead one to wonder.

They would have to turn some schmucks, get them to turn someone more dependable and that that someone kill the schmuck and then be bitten again, so because is so complicated, I think it might have some importance that he is twice bitten.

"And what about freaking RAY? "

Seriously, what is so hard to figure out about Ray?
The guy was shot by Nora & then had his head caved in with a rock by Josh, they then cut out his heart to bring Sally back.
Are you really expecting his heartless corpse to just reanimate for no reason at all and be a part of the sorylines?

At this point you've asked about him a few times like he's a major character that's missing, either you have gotten 2 characters mixed up or you totally missed how Josh became human again and Sally became whatever she is now.

Yes, but then the witch found his corpse in the woods when she was throwing his blood out at the end of the premiere and implied that she would be using him for something. Since reanimation is kind of her thing, I don't think it's out there to assume that she might have brought him back for some nefarious witchy deed or something.

So at this point, it better be AWESOME since they've let the thread hang for pretty much the entire season.

The witch found Ray's body after she gave Josh and Norah Sally's body and poured some of that dead ghost dust on him and said something to him and then, seriously, Ray's reappearance while sort of blue lighted as been as previewed as Sally eating a mouse.

Well, we saw the witch re-animate him (or something like that) in the final seconds of the season premiere. Obviously she has designs on him or else why show us that scene.

Granted, that whole "witch" storyline is kind of stalled. First we see she "eats" ghosts that Sally created to rejuvenate herself. And... that's really it. Either put up or shut up / user her or don't.

When she said she was a descendant of a war hero from the revolution I immediately starting wondering if she was his descendant. I don't remember what exactly happened to his son, only that he had one and that he was bummed out about his death, but he could have died and old man and Aiden would probably still be sad (it's his kid after all). Although I seem to remember something was said/shown where his family died I just can't remember the exact circumstance, it might have just been his wife, I simply can't remember.

I thought the proposal was super sweet, but then got creeped out by their going to have sex in the bathtub of that house. Use some self restraint for Heaven's sake. I thought this ep. was head and shoulders above the last one.

I think Henry's coming back now. Yay! How weird was it that Max could take the fact that his girlfriend was a reanimated corpse, but has a problem with her not sharing her roomates' secretes with him.

I blinked. Did Aide and Josh kill Liam? (hope, hope hope)

Liam isn't dead. That would be too easy for a main character, plus he was still pretty alive in the last scene.
Unfortunately they haven't made it very clear how a werewolf could be killed. Does it take a silver bullet? Does it take a shot to the heart? All we know is you can bash their head in, suffocate them and shoot them in the heart to kill them but those are the only ways we've seen so far.

Hard to say, Liam has a couple of silver bullets in him. Being A) being pure-blood and B) being in transformation (and mid-transformation) during most of the chest shots... chances are he'll heal. After all, towards the end there it seemed like Aiden was hinting that the gun wouldn't be enough for Liam.

Considering he was locked behind the door banging against it, I doubt the writers would have THAT as their closing scene. They probably want him to go out with a bang.

Man I really hope they either A) redeem Nora or B) get rid of her. I liked her back in the day, but she's annoying.

My "favorite" part was: oh, he's killed *3* people lately? Umm, girl, you killed 2 people in even less time: your ex and his bestie-beastie. Glass house?

Not to mention, she wasn't really arguing against the "Erin attacking Aiden" theory this episode, so she was accepting that Erin was attacking Aiden but Aiden couldn't protect himself?

Seriously, bring back past-season Nora. She was alright.

Seriously...it makes me wonder if Liam has drugged her (gosh, that would be such a nice and easy way to return her to the way she was...I don't even think she was that horrible at the beginning of this season was she, so maybe that is it!) Fingers crossed.

I so agree with you about Nora. I kept thinking what a hypocrite she was being. Her hands aren't so clean. She used to understand what being paranormal meant. There are different rules. None of them chose their lives, and her sudden blaming Aiden for his life is just wrong, and not really logical or even in character. It is so obvious a plot device, that it's just distracting. It doesn't feel like a logical evolution of her character.

Ditto. Nora has been written into such an utter mess right now. The only way I can make sense of how she's thinking it to chalk it up to her being a giant hypocrite and I haaaate thinking like that but otherwise I just get a headache from trying to make sense of her motivations/thought processes this season. :(

And the thing is, I think we're supposed to understand her motivations. The writers aren't having Josh point out to her the obvious hypocrisy in her statements, and he's not THAT big a wuss. So, I'm guessing the writers believe we are following their train of thought.

So Aiden would obediently follow Liam back to his loft without a fight and let him torture and kill him with certainty? Wow! Death wish from Aiden or plain illogic writing again? How amazing. And how on earth did Ray know how to eat cats to rejuvenate? Instinct? How did Sally suddenly develop a taste for raw meat and then live rats from the trailer next week? Geez, tie up these loose ends man.
PS: And yes, Nora is really becoming a whiny BiTch -woof pun intended!

3 wolves against 1 vamp, in the daylight, with Aiden's blossoming love-interest within spitting distance. He didn't really have much of a chance to put up a fight. Plus, as we learned a while back when Josh met his maker... when it's nearing "turning" time a human-form wolf can take on a vamp fairly well. And last night was (sigh) another full moon.

As for Ray, he was probably getting really hungry, some instinct took over that made cats look like a tastey option, saw he was decomposing, and figured 2+2 == zombie. After all, our bodies tend to crave what it needs. And if he was a Phd or doctor I guess he figured it out.

Loved this episode & totally applauded when Josh got scratched.

Sally's decomposing was pretty gnarly but I'm glad her story arc is getting more interesting.

Henry is coming back now that Aiden is sick... I know this.

I'm glad that Nora actually confronted Liam about Erin being a mole. Yes, she was a bitch to Aiden but at least she took what he said and considered it a possibility. Hopefully Josh tells her what Aiden did for her as well so she can stop being such a bitch.

Also I was so glad not to see bubble boy... that arc was getting super boring.

Loved how Sally instinctively grabbed a vial of blood for Aiden when he came in all beat up.
