BEING HUMAN: SCOOP ON SEASON 3
SyFy’s Being Human returns tonight, but before you sink your teeth into this new episode,Sam Witwer has a strong endorsement if I’ve ever heard one. “I think we’ve completely nailed [the tone] on the third season,” he says. “While I think we did some really great stuff in the second season and I think our best episode might be in the second season, I also think it got a little bit unbalanced — the darkness didn’t necessarily have as much humor to balance it out. So the thing I’m most excited about in season 3 is that there is a very keen balance between the humor and the dark stuff.”
I know it may be hard to imagine just how they strike that balance considering how we left the characters at the end of the second season, but trust me when I say tonight’s episode certainly has a few light moments. (Hint: My favorite scenes from the premiere involved some hallucinations.) But my one warning before you tune in? Don’t expect everything to be wrapped up immediately.
In fact, most of the episode, which takes place 15 months after the finale (in show time), will find all of the characters still looking for some type of closure. “[Aiden] had a very traumatizing previous season…and the consequences of everything [he’s] done are going to haunt [him] this season.” (Note: Come back tomorrow in the morning for a premiere post-mortem with Witwer!)
+ What happens to Sally in the premiere will blow. your. mind!
+ Aiden rocks a grizzly beard tonight — and I totally dug it.
+ Mother doesn’t come up until episode 2.
+ And much further down the road, expect another flashback that goes “way further back into history than the show has ever gone,” according to Witwer.
