“Don’t fear the Scott”
Season 2 – Episode 211
Being Human, it was logical to assume this week’s episode would be a light-hearted view of Josh the Werewolf, Aidan the Vampire and Sally the Ghost’s return to normalcy. With the exception of a delightfully awkward “family” dinner amongst the roommates and their lady friends, this episode was anything but normal.
After a rocky start, Aidan and Suren finally have their relationship back on track. Henry has been properly tortured for previous transgressions and allowed to return to the Boston elite Vampire society, the orphan problem has been eradicated and in an effort to fit into Aidan’s odd lifestyle, Suren has even promised not to eat any of his friends and/or roommates at dinner.
But, things go horribly wrong when Mother comes to town and Aidan’s supposed reward of "freedom" for successfully helping get the Boston Vampire Frat back in ship shape is nothing like freedom at all, but in fact a banishment. Shocked and lovesick at the thought of life without Suren, Aidan takes a quick swing at the merciless Vamp mama, misses, then races back to the house where he informs Sally and Josh that he is going on the run and taking Suren with him because he is in love with her. Trusting only Henry with their plan, the lovebirds skip town and hole up in a dirty motel complete with gaudy duvets and a green pool out back. While on a mission to acquire some "food" for a very hungry Suren, Aidan gets attacked by a gaggle of vamps led by none other than Henry, or Judas as he can now be referred to as, in a stunning turncoat move that everyone saw coming...probably even Aidan.
Stay tuned next week as Aidan tries to decide whether to flee with Suren or stay and fight for her, Josh ruminates further about being the frayed rope in a nasty game of relationship tug of war and Sally picks up the pieces of her broken afterlife…hopefully without the help of that pesky reaper fellow.
