Hello dear readers and welcome back to TiBS TV reviews where more shows have been added for your reading pleasure. I am here to review and recap Episode One of Season 3 of SyFy’s shows Being Human. I have to admit that I didn’t get into this show right away, not because I didn’t have an interest, but because it was conflicting with another show that I thought was more important at the time. During one of the hiatus’ I found myself looking for something to watch and choosing Being Human was a great choice. Now I’m hooked and find myself getting excited for each new episode. I find the cast compelling and the storylines interesting. I know many may disagree with me feeling that the BBC version of Being Human is much better, but since I have never seen it I can’t comment.
Before we start with the season premiere let’s briefly look back on how last season ended. Our three main characters were all left in situations that left us with our jaws hanging open and wondering what the new season would bring.
Season 2 left us with Sally going to Limbo, Aiden getting buried alive as punishment and Josh facing Ray with the intent to kill.
So with that being said let’s see what Season 3 starts us out with?
Season three starts off Fifteen months after Season 2, with Aiden having delusions regarding his misfit family as he tries to keep his sanity under the dirt. Josh and Nora on a mission to find Sally and Aiden, and Sally running around Limbo.
One of the questions that burned in my head though the hiatus was if killing Ray worked and we soon found out that Josh has regained his humanity by killing Ray, but Nora is still a werewolf.
On their quest to find Sally, Nora and Josh encounter the medium who tried to exercise Sally during Season One. She informs them that she is unable to help them, but gives them a name of a person who may be able to help. This woman is a witch who tells Josh and Nora that bringing a soul back from Limbo was a dark task and that her fee was $2,000 and she needed the heart of a person they had killed. The prospect of anyone else finding out they had killed Ray concerns Nora, but Josh is determined to bring Sally back and begins to justify that if he can bring her back with Ray’s death then there is a little justice in the world. After delivering Ray’s heart the two get the full scoop of what they are about to embark on which is the resurrection of Sally not just the return of her soul. After having a meltdown about losing his friends and not being able to save Nora, Josh comments to the ritual convince that Sally would rather be there then in Limbo.
Sally is being tormented in Limbo by having to rescue her friends each and every day from their own form of Limbo to attempt an escape. Her attempts always end with them disappearing and she having to start all over again. Finally the door to Sally’s home opens and after convincing her friends to follow they step through.
Aiden is dug up by a man claiming to be his Savior, but he is aware of the vampire sickness and the price of pure vampire blood, so he is taking Aiden as his captive in order to sell his blood. However his first sale goes bad when one of the Amish finds Aiden and “rescues” him. Being plagued with the sickness himself he has plans to take Aiden home and he and his family will feast on the untainted blood that would cure them. However, after having a delusion about Josh, Sally and Bishop, Aiden tries to fight but the sick vampire is still too strong for his “dehydrated” self and he is fed upon. Unfortunately for the Amish vampire Aiden’s blood didn’t cure him and he dies at behind the wheel of the van causing it to crash into a telephone pole.
It appears that the reanimation was a success when Sally finally wakes up and tells Josh and Nora that Stevie and Nick had come with her. Does that mean that they woke up in the coffins?
The witch goes out to the woods to find Ray’s body. Now what could she want with his body?
The show ends with Aiden laying up by the side of the road fighting death!
I can honestly say that I think season three could be the best season to date. I enjoyed the heart wrenching scenes between Josh and Nora and Josh’s torment of losing his friends. I’m intrigued by what the witch could want with Ray’s body or what she could do to cause trouble for the gang. It’s going to be interesting to find out what’s going to happen if both Stevie and Nick returned with Sally and how Sally copes with being “human” again. However, the most intriguing storyline of this week’s episode is if Aiden is going to survive and will he stay sane or will he continue to have these delusions?
Well, until next time, readers have a great week and remember to tune into being human next Monday night at eight central time.
