'Being Human' nostalgia recap: Tying up loose ends

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “You’re the One That I Haunt” | Aired Apr 4, 2011

Danger is lurking in the shadows for the roommates on Syfy’s Being Human. After Bishop’s attack on The Dutch, a war is brewing on the horizon. Aidan and Josh can feel the tension—the issue has left everything up in the air for them and their lives. With their greatest enemy ready to strike, there’s no telling when they’ll find peace with this battle.

Last week’s episode left the roommates in a state of shock. Sally is still in creepy ghost mode after her failed exorcism, while Josh and Aidan are forced to carry wooden stakes to defend themselves. Bishop is public enemy #1 for killing Boston’s most powerful vampires, and he wants to take his anger out on someone: Aidan. The stress has gotten to the boys so much that Aidan nearly kills the handyman at the hospital. Everyone could be a threat to their lives—Bishop could have turned anyone.

Josh (Sam Huntington) and Aidan (Sam Witwer) disagreeing about handling Bishop (Mark Pellegrino).

Luckily for Aidan, there’s a familiar face at the hospital that would do him no harm. Celine, the mysterious woman from his past, is visiting the hospital for a checkup. Aidan hasn’t seen Celine since the ’70s, when they were lovers. Aidan wanted to be with Celine for the rest of her human life. Unfortunately for them, Bishop tracked down his former protégé to bring him home.

Aidan left Boston years after The Dutch’s last visit, and he’s stayed in Montreal with Celine since then. Bishop urges Aidan to come back, threatening to kill Celine and her entire family to do so. The love-struck vampire doesn’t want to lose her. He plans to hide her and run off together, but Celine isn’t ready to give up her life to be in hiding. She takes off without Aidan, and while on the road, Bishop kidnaps and threatens her to never contact Aidan again.

Celine took the deal for the safety of her family, and ultimately, she made the right choice. Since then she’s enjoyed a full life of love, friends, and family. Aidan can’t believe his eyes when he sees her again in the hospital courtyard. He’s shy at first, but the pair reconnect as if not a moment has passed. However, their reunion is a onetime thing.

Celine isn’t just visiting the hospital for a checkup—she’s dying of lung cancer. She survived her first attack, but the cancer returned. Aidan offers to end her pain and turn her into a vampire, but Celine is ready to die. She’s had a great life and has a family to leave behind. Aidan makes peace with his past and focuses on the future.

Celine (Nathalie Breuer) seeing Aidan (Sam Witwer) for the first time in years.

Josh, on the other hand, is only worrying about the present. Nora is already starting to show from her pregnancy, which seems to be moving at an accelerated pace. She schedules an ultrasound to view the baby, but Josh is worried it will be a werewolf baby. Aidan calms down his friend and diverts his attention back to the Bishop problem.

A vampire could attack any one of them at any minute … like the hospital lunchroom clerk, Jenny. Bishop has turned the shy clerk into a vampire and sends her to kill Aidan. She ambushes the roommates in the hospital staircase, but the boys are well prepared. Josh stakes the newbie vampire and saves his friend.

Back at the apartment, Sally is experiencing a new side to her ghost life—the poltergeist life. After using her powers to trick Danny into cutting his throat while shaving, Sally returned to normal. She’s excited about tormenting Danny for life and showing him nothing but pain. Danny, on the other hand, is ready to say goodbye to Sally once and for all.

Sally’s former fiancée and killer arrives at the apartment to burn it down. With no house to haunt, Sally will disappear forever. Danny throws gasoline everywhere and lights the apartment on fire. As the room starts to burn, Sally isn’t letting Danny escape so easily; she traps him inside to burn with her. Danny calls out for help. Josh and Aidan burst through the front door in time to save the building. While Josh puts out the fire, Aidan wants to kill Sally’s murderer.

Danny is surprised to find that both Josh and Aidan can see Sally. Death will come swiftly for the murderer, but Josh has another idea. He convinces Sally and Aidan that a life behind bars is what Danny deserves. They force him to confess to the police that he set the fire and killed Sally. Sally’s killer is going away for the rest of his life. She can now find peace.

The roommates are celebrating their win. Sally’s killer is behind bars and Josh might go back to med school part-time. Sally has a long ghost life ahead of her—that is, until her door arrives. It’s time for her to move on and say goodbye; it’s her moment to go to the afterlife. She’s not ready—she’ll miss Josh and Aidan.

Before she’s even able to open the door, Bishop has one more surprise for the roommates. The disgraced vampire leader bursts through the front window and stakes Aidan! The attack isn’t enough to dust him, but it can eventually kill him. Aidan is left dying on death’s door … quite literally.

Aidan (Sam Witwer) dying in the manor as Josh (Sam Huntington) and Sally (Meaghan Rath) try to save him.
