    The writers set themselves up for a challenge having this entire episode take place solely in one location with little character interaction outside the main cast but did an outstanding job of keeping it suspenseful and gripping with believable dilemmas.

    Sally's subconscious world where she is engaged to the reaper made me think of what she was with Danny the whole time I was watching. The man who was always convincing her that his idea of her life and their relationship was what was best for her and what she really wanted. Which is extremely symbolic of her afterlife issues. This led me to believe that perhaps not letting history repeat in a sense is what would snap her out of it.



    When the reaper woke in Sally's body and ripped the guys a new one was by far one of the most amazing scenes in the series.

    "Upstairs you can smell it can't you Josh? It's seeping through the wood. No amount of scrubbing is ever going to get it out. not ever. You'll always know what he did here, in your Brilliant line regarding Aidan killing those girls in the previous episode.



    That was one of my favorite things about this episode, Aidan getting a wake up call he desperately needed since beginning to live drink again. I was very glad Josh gave him that bitch slap and hope it gets through.



    One issue I had was that I would have found more depth in Aidan or Sally having snapped Sally back. Aidan was the one getting through when they'd tried to talk to her comatose form and since season one you can tell they have a connection, so probably that's probably my Saidan shipping speaking hehe.



    It irritated me that even after actually meeting the reaper both in Sally's mind and in possession of Sally's body, Zoey still could not understand that Sally was not responsible for her actions. Her relationship with Nick was unhealthy and there seemingly couldn't have been much to it anyway. Unless Nick discovered the touching trick, they can't touch so they can't kiss or cuddle or have sex, and they can't marry and have children. If Nick did learn the touching trick, could she even feel him then? Because if he just feels like air, that's not much better than not being able to touch him. They can't even go on proper dates because he's not there to the rest of the world. So what kind of relationship was it really? I don't really give a rats *** about Zoe though so I don't much care if she never forgives Sally but really after the strong evidence that got shoved in her face, she was a pretty big *** about it. Sally/reaper may have even done her a favor, now she can learn to be with living men where she belongs. The mind melding thing was really interesting though, I liked that concept but again it lost it's depth with Zoe having doing it. Or this may also be the Sally/Adian shipper and corny romantic speaking. I mean it was unique which the show usually is and what is so great about it. Technically though you could say that Adian was the one who really pulled her out of it, when he screamed while having his vampire convulsion he send a rumble through her little dream world causing the Reaper to be distracted enough to yank Sally into the half way point between the dream world and reality. Where she then saw what was happening to her friends and reminded her who she was. So very nice domino effect from Josh's selfless sacrifice of his blood. I guess it was her friends who saved her. :)



    Overall a very exciting and creative episode as usual, although from the previous I had expected more action from Reaper Sally but oh well.

    Next week's episode looks super awesome and exciting, except for Adian wanting to run away with Suren. Guess that slap in the face from Josh didn't work. XP I want it to be next Monday now.moreless

    This season started off great then got bogged down with lame characters/stories. The past two episodes have been great. Amazing special effects. Ballers on a budget.

    Dream Reaper was a superb episode of Being Human and I really enjoyed watching this episode as Sally was lost in a dream state as Aiden, Josh and Zooey tried to help her. In the process Josh and Aiden are forced to tell the truth about themselves to Zooey. The way they redecorated the house in Sally's dream world was awesome and very beautiful. In the end Sally comes back but finds that she can't escape the pain she has already caused. This episode really delved into the human psyche and it was interesting to watch how the story progressed. The ending was kind of crazy and I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless

      Josh: Yeah, this isn't a joke.
      Zoe: So--so you're going to turn into a wolf and have me for dinner.
      Aidan: Okay, listen very carefully. He's telling the truth.
