Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

Well, that was weird. Sally traveling back in time and actually changing history by preventing her own death? The whole relationship/sex thing with Aidan? I think this was all a dream that didn't really happen.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

You do know that they know that the show is cancelled?

They can fuck shit right up and there are NO CONSEQUENCES.

More so it's a fantastic excuse to invite a lot of people back to say thank-you for building the show.

They did this time travel thing for the last six episode of Felicity which was astounding.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

I thought Sally might turn into a vampire but she got the werewolf treatment instead.

What was up with those freeze-frames at the end of each act?

Comic book effect? I don't know.

Guy, I know the series is ending. But I hope they don't go with the direction of last night's episode. Maybe Sally will realize she's in purgatory and will end up battling John Locke/Smoke Monster.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

The episode was a fun look at another possible version of the events of the series, but I'm hoping that we go back to the original timeline before the end. They didn't seem to have really tied up to much of the arcs, so at this point I'm assuming they will.

It doesn't matter what you know, it matters when they knew.

As soon as they knew it was over they could start writing an end.

Purgatory, it is.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

Sorry, that came across a lot ruder than I intended.

What I meant, was that they were writing towards an end before the end became public knowledge.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

I think those flashes were turning points in this new history.

Kinda shocked at the Aidan/ Sally romance, but she DID save him a whole lot of pain. (Though I think she forgot she was a ghost -- and could get hurt by Marcus "Ghost of Future Suck It"?!?!

But poor Josh!!!

I thought this would have been an episode they could have stretched...but I guess they'll move quickly to the end. Looking forward to it.

How many more episodes?

Interesting episode, I wasn't expecting the direction they went with this episode. Too bad she couldn't push Danny down the stairs, that guy's a piece of work. It's too bad Sally gets so impulsive when she has the upper hand but that is consistent with her character.

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

She wasn't protecting history enough.

Bishop and his minions had to die at the right time.

A lot of other people had to die at the right time too.

Or else they are bouncing around creating new problems.

And what about the virus?

Do we know who started that how?

On one hand she knows the cure, on the other hand she doesn't have to tell Aiden that he's inoculated, if she inoculates him, but Sally has the power to remove vampires from the world globally if she feels like it, just by keeping her mouth shut.

Vampires performing oral sex on a were wolf?

One. That's Sally inoculating Aiden.

Two. That's gotta hurt. Negative reinforcement. Vagina = pain. That's the reverse of how homosexually is supposedly cured in males... And of course how supposedly homosexuality is cured in females.

The flawed psychology on this is sound: Sally's painful wolfgina will make Aiden gay if he performs enough cunnilingus during the height of her cycle..

But Sally is neither a vampire nor a wolf. She's just Sally; in any case, head trauma is her undoing.

Did you miss the part where Josh accidentally scratched her? She became a wolf for about 4 minutes of screen time. But the question is -- did she become a ghost again? (Or her "prime" universe ghost has been released?)

I was wondering , though, did her friend who killed become a ghost?

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

Thank you Morpheus.

Sally said that her past soul and future soul had become fused.

Which means that it's 50/50 if she's an invisible timelocked ghost now that she's dead again, or a witch ghost who her supernatural friends can see... Although if she's invisible, it's no big deal, because she then just has to possess someone else and she's back in the game.

Can a Ghost possess a Vampire?

But as soon as she can do magic again, and gets flug back into the past again, she can put everything back on track by not saving herself, and what happens when she catches up to what should be the present, it seems like the rubber band should snap.

Do we like or dislike the intense brightness of this timeline?

(I altered the picture settings so it looks normal, which means that I practically robbed my self of the intended experience. Bad me.)

UM?

What about (past) Donna?

Donna said that she gets timelost sometimes which means that her past self has probably noticed some ripples from Sally's grandstanding against the natural order of things.

What if freshly dead Sally get's a Door?

What a stinker if she has to pass up another door?

Re: Being Human (American Version) - Season 4

This current plotline is getting old after two episodes. I can't wait for Sally to get back to her original timeline. I still have residual memories of her forced hookup with Aidan.
