Cyndi Lauper was right- girls do just want to have fun, even the dead ones. That is exactly what this episode of Syfy’s Being Human is about. Sally is back in her body and looking to celebrate being alive-ish . The primarily character-oriented “(Dead) Girls Just Want to Have Fun” slows down the pace a little bit from the season 3 premiere, but still keeps things moving pretty quickly.
You don’t have to wait very long before the trio are back together again. Aidan calls Josh from a phone booth (do those still exist?) to catch a ride home, and, once he’s brought up to speed on the season’s new developments, he gives a fantastic “Ubuuuh?” reaction to the news. After getting caught up and losing the massive beard, Aidan sets out to find some untainted blood to drink. He visits one of his old human friends, who seems kinda hookery if you ask me, and finds that she’s contaminated with the virus. She sends him to the black market where he gets beat up by a group of wolves in human form. Good thing his old pal Henry comes to his rescue! He and his handsome face show up just in time to save Aiden’s equally handsome face.
Henry offers his girlfriend, Emma, to feed Aidan because she’s never had the virus. As he’s about to drink he discovers that she has been held against her will inside the apartment by Henry, cut off from the rest of the world so that she doesn’t become infected. Aidan’s too good of a vamp to let this happen so he sets her free without getting any of her blood. Henry gets pissed that his golden goose is gone, and so gets his feathers ruffled and flies the coop.
Sally gets to change clothes! And put on make up! And fix her hair! She also convinces Josh to go out with her to celebrate his being human (Hey, that’s the name of the show!) and her being alive-ish. While they’re out, Sally bumps into Trent, someone she knew in her past. Uh oh, Witchy-poo told her not to do that! She makes up a story about how she had to fake her death and then proceed to make out with Trent hardcore. Josh does his best to remind Sally of Witchy-poo’s ominous warning, but she doesn’t care. It feels too good and she wants to get some, so she invites Trent back to the apartment. When they get to the steps, he says he feels weird and needs to go home. Booo! Sally’s sleepin’ solo tonight.
The next day she and Josh hear sirens outside and discovers an ambulance zipping up a body bag filled with dear old Trent. Josh comes to the conclusion that that’s why Sally can’t see anyone from her past- they’ll drop like a bag of rocks!
Nora has to miss the fun night out since it’s a full moon. She reveals to Josh that she knows he sits outside her unit all night just to make sure she’s okay, and convinces him to move on by going out with Sally. Great timing ,Nora! While she’s locking herself up, old Liam comes by looking for his daughter. He and his family are wolves themselves, but his son was killed and now he can’t find his daughter. Nora explains that she had run with her (as a wolf) previously but couldn’t keep up, and now she doesn’t know where she is. We also get to see a quick flashback to when Liam’s son was killed, with Nora smack-dab in the middle of that nonsense, reminding us that she might be stretching the truth to old Liam here. Liam decides to lock them both up together so that his inner wolf can decide if she was trust worthy or not.
Josh confides in Sally that he plans to ask Nora to marry him and goes to let her out of her storage unit. When he gets there, he finds the door busted open, with no wolves or humans in sight, but a buttload of blood everywhere.
If you’re wondering about Stevie and Nick, they were both brought back to life just like Sally. Stevie takes off to lose his virginity, and Nick leaves with Zoe. Hooray! Happiness all round for those guys. Goodbye, you two goobers, and we hope to never see you again because if we do it probably means something bad has/will happen to you.
This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!
