I’ll go ahead and admit that I’m probably one of the un-girly-est broads around. Especially when it comes to crying. So it pains me to admit this – but I totally had a chick moment during the Season 3 Finale of UK’s Being Human.
You may have read this – and if you haven’t, you should. Recently, SyFy has done its own spin on the show. And it’s… cute. It’s… entertaining. But what it isn’t – it isn’t something that can even remotely hold a candle to BBC’s Being Human.
Last night was the end of the unstoppable trio – and the beginning of well… who knows? So let’s touch on some highlights of Season 3.
Annie Comes Home:
Mitchell braved the afterlife (technically the after afterlife?) to save Annie. There he was forced to face some of his demons – from his first kill to his most recent. And she happened to have a grudge. It was there she foretold his fate of a “wolf-shaped bullet” coming to end him – and we watched Mitchell slip back down a dark place doing all he could to avoid that metaphorical loaded gun.
On a happy note? Annie and Mitchell found love. And I’ll be damned if Annie isn’t the cutest thing since those little guys from Critters when she tries to flirt.
Starting a Pack:
So… who would have guessed the pill doesn’t work when you are a werewolf? Season 3 of BBC’s Being Human brought us some werewolf humpage (not as hot as the Howling II’s infamous scene, mind you) – and George and Nina now have a furry little monster on the way. Cute… er… right?
He Walks Again:
Sometimes you can’t simply kill evil by ripping its head off. Proof? Herrick. His return is brilliant. He’s insane. He’s weak. And he’s forgotten he’s a vampire.
But… not everything is so easy to forget. And what he remembers? Blood. Lots and lots of it.
The last two episodes were like a steamroller of action. If you haven’t seen them – quit reading. And go watch. Now.
With Nina and the baby in critical condition after being gutted by Herrick – I was almost convinced Nina was a goner. But luckily, the healing factor of Weres is far superior to that of man. Both Nina – and baby are fine. However Mitchell‘s trip into madness caught up with him. And he has made the choice to die.
And he does. In the most purely unadulterated beautifully loving way possible. Through tears, and anger, and begging – George sets Mitchell free.I did my best to dance around the key plot here – in hopes that those of you who haven’t seen it yet – won’t rely on a silly review and actually go watch. And when you do? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
