If you thought the SyFy finale of Being Human was going to be an imitation of the British Series One finale, think again. Although there were similarities, this finale offered a few juicy twists to keep it original in its own right.
The finale began with Aidan (Sam Witwer) in the hospital cellar, fighting for his life after Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) attempted to dust him at the end of the last episode. While Josh (Sam Huntington) and Sally (Meaghan Rath) anxiously watched over their friend, poor Nora (Kristen Hager), still outside of the supernatural loop, hesitantly complied with Josh’s vague instructions, violating hospital protocol in the process. This was the final straw for Nora—she could no longer be with Josh if he continued shutting her out.
As worry for his vampire buddy consumed him, Josh recalled when and how he first met and befriended Aidan. These flashbacks seamlessly weaved the past and present, laying the foundation for Josh’s move later in the episode.
Not wanting Sally to lose her chance at crossing over, Aidan implored her to return home and pass through the portal/door that appeared just before Bishop attacked. Though she initially refused, Sally eventually returned home, only to find the door gone. All is not doom and gloom for Sally: she can now physically hold solid objects.
Celine (Nathalie Breuer), understanding all too well the strength Aidan would need to fight Bishop, unsuccessfully tried to convince him to drain her. When Celine wheeled Aidan to the hospital elevators, a brief stare-down with Bishop prompted the evil vampire-cop to threaten Josh and his family—unless he agreed to deliver a message to Aidan.
When Josh weakly (and adorably) informed Aidan of Bishop’s desire for a vampire-vampire showdown in the old factory the following night, Sally realized a full moon was on the horizon. With Aidan still weak, Sally thought it might be better if Josh blindsides Bishop with his inner werewolf.
Aidan, determined to face his nemesis, returned to Celine, who finally revealed what Bishop did to her years ago. Following a touching farewell, Aidan gently drained Celine. Meanwhile, our favorite werewolf returned to Bishop with a change in plans: Aidan will fight him in the hospital cellar, not the factory.
After what felt like the final supper between our paranormal friends, Aidan headed to the factory, seemingly unaware of Josh’s plan to claw down Bishop. Once in the cellar, Josh reminded Sally to close the door upon Bishop’s arrival. Sally sweetly told Josh he is not a killer, locked him in the cellar, and left him alone…or so she thought.
