Relationship Recap: With Friends Like These…on Being Human

If there’s anyone who can sympathize/empathize with Josh its Aidan. And vice versa. They’re both trying to be human – have relationships, jobs, friends. It’s so hard because they have a lot to hide and even more to lose if they’re exposed. It makes sense that they’re best friends, although it was nice to hear Josh say those words to Aidan last week. There’s only one problem with that, though. Blood is thicker than water and at the end of the day, Aidan is a vampire. He often hates what he is and turned his back on his “family” a long time ago. But with a vamp showdown on the horizon and Aidan back in the fold, there’s only so much he can do for his friends. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Ironically, Josh and Aidan actually are age old enemies. As we all know vampires see themselves as superior beings and when Josh attacked Victor, he set himself up for a world of hurt. When that manifests as a dog fight there’s only so much Aidan can do to get Josh out of that cage match. The wolf he’s fighting has been a champion for 15 years – he’s older and he’s stronger. Aidan doesn’t know anything about it until he sees Josh in the cage and even then there’s only so much he can do. Aidan can’t help him without one or both of them dying. The best option is to go back to his family, and to Bishop in particular. And isn’t it convenient that Aidan returns to his family just as the Dutch are preparing to kill Bishop? Hey, that’s not a spoiler. That’s what Bishop tells Aidan.

But back to Josh and Aidan. In this age old blood feud I just can’t see the werewolves or the vampires triumphing over the other without these two friends getting thrown in the middle. I think I showdown is coming and both Aidan and Josh are going to have to pick sides. I hope their friendship is important enough and strong enough to fight for because I can’t imagine Aidan and Josh being on opposite sides. I think we all know who’d win that fight.

Season 2 of Being Human premieres Monday, January 16th at 9/8c on Syfy.
