Being Human: Children Shouldn't Play With Undead Things

Josh starts out the episode pining for Nora and reciting his usual litany of reasons why his life as a werewolf sucks (relationships are impossible, blah blah), and just when you think a hard kick in the ass is the only solution...POW! Nora stops to talk to him at the hospital, his wolfie personality doesn't want to play nice boy anymore and he ends up shagging her good and proper. Awe-some! Josh is a really nice guy and I like his bumbling behavior but it was also nice to see him in a grittier situation for a change. He needs to find some sort of balance with his inner wolf. Nora obviously wasn't too shocked by anything because she thinks they might have a thing and both decide to take it slow for awhile. We'll see how that goes.

Aidan displayed a softer side when he rescues a neighbor kid from being bullied and they become friends~ playing cards, watching movies, knocking a ball around etc. All that is ruined when the kid gets ahold of his vampire porn DVD and the mom goes crazy on Aidan. You could see it coming from a mile away, especially when Rebecca shows up at the park, but I still felt sorry for him when the idyllic bubble burst. And the Josh throws in his two sense about Aidan keeping the DVD. Poor Aidan.

Josh upset me the most because I thought they were in this being human thing together, and all he ever does is cast judgement on Aidan for struggling with his monster. Watching blood sex seems like a pretty minor offense considering that Aidan doesn't kill people and tries to drink bagged blood. At this point I'd have to say that Aidan and Josh need to have an honest discussion about what all this means.

Sally grew up a bit and thanks to Aidan she now has another avenue of ghostdom to explore. The hospital ghosts were creepy and sad so I'm hoping she doesn't spend much time there, but maybe she'll find some answers in that puzzle wall of scary ghost writing. I did like that she acknowledged the pity party and might move on from gets old and she was staring to get super bratty (yelling when Josh was trying to talk to Nora, hollering at Aidan when the kid was over).

Who do you think has it the worst? Any predictions for Josh and Nora? And still, what do you think Rebecca is up to? Overall thoughts and opinions about the show?

Here's a sneak peek at next week:

SUCH a good episode!! Josh finding his inner wolf was pretty fab. I felt so bad for Aidan and the little boy. They are becoming good friends and I knew something was going to happen like that. Just wish it hadn't.
Sally keeps growing as a ghost and I found her trip down the hospital hallway really creepy, but necessary.
Can't wait for next week.

did the preview make you think that the little kid was going to get turned into a vampire?

I think Sally has it the worst. At least Aidan and Josh can do things to help themselves and interact with people. Sally's stuck and can barely do anything to make that d-bag Danny suffer. That scene where he was like haha, you're nothing because you're dead and I'm still alive? I wanted to reach in the TV and throttle him. I hate him so much. I can't believe he brainwashed her friend so quickly, but she's dumb enough to swallow it. Being Sally would be uberfrustrating.

That preview did make me think that the kid might be turned, probably by Rebecca, in another feeble attempt to get Aidan to return to his vampire roots. Vampire kids creep me out, except Claudia in Interview with the Vampire, and I don't like the idea of hurting children so we'll see how that goes.

I still can't figure out what would be worse, a vampire, a werewolf, or a ghost. Call me fickle but I change my mind like 5 times per episode:)
