Being Human Season Four Premiere Preview: “Old Dogs, New Tricks” [SET VISIT PHOTOS + VIDEO]
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Season four of Syfy’s Being Human premieres tonight. After what can only be considered the best season of the series ever (the third), how is the show going to top itself? Well, it gets off to a good start with the premiere, “Old Dogs, New Tricks.” So many things have to be dealt with.
A synopsis for the premiere:
Aidan (Sam Witwer) and Nora (Kristen Hager) struggle to save Josh (Sam Huntington) who remains in wolf form. At the same time, visitors from Aidanâ€™s haunted past collide with the present forcing him to make impossible decisions that will affect those closest to him. Sally (Meaghan Rath), having been dragged down into her death spot by witch, Donna (guest star Amy Aquino), finds herself trapped with her foe but newly imbued with her own magical powers that could profoundly change all of their lives.
Thoughts/slight spoilers for “Old Dogs, New Tricks”:
-I’m not sure what exactly is going on with Sally but I want to find out. The premiere does start providing some intel on the matter.
-Remember the relationship between Nora and Aidan in season three? Well, expect them to have put aside any animosity. Finally. These two are practically BFFs now. And I love that.
-Something I’m super excited to see unveiled: the reason why a woman who looks like Aidan’s (late) wife is in town. I happen to love the actress who plays her (Katharine Isabelle, who played Ava during season two of the CW’s Supernatural) so this development has me intrigued.
-Josh is mostly in wolf form but don’t worry, there will be a human Josh sighting. Is it too soon to say that scruffy Josh = sexy Josh? I’m just saying.
In honor of theÂ Being HumanÂ premiere, we have some treats:
TV Goodness recently went to Montreal to hit the set of Syfy’s Being Human.
At a press conference for the series,Â Being Human creator Anna Fricke talked about the theme for season four:
ANNA FRICKE: This season is destiny. And I think thatâ€™s partially us sort of hearing fan feedback and also us doing what we like to do the best which is about these guys [Aidan, Sally, Josh, Nora] and bringing the characters together. So itâ€™s really exploring the fact that everything happens for a reason. These people are together for a reason. And that they are crucial to keeping each other human.
And if you think the characters are in for a break, think again.
ANNA:Â Weâ€™ve always said thatâ€™s itâ€™s…no one can ever have it easy on this show so itâ€™s definitely about how itâ€™s getting harder for them to kind of get away with stuff theyâ€™re trying to get away with and that they definitely all are forced to fully embrace the various kinds of monsters that they are so there is sort of that version but I wouldnâ€™t say itâ€™s hell in that itâ€™s dark and itâ€™s going to be a horrible struggle the whole time. I think itâ€™s definitely a battle for all of them. Itâ€™s more of how they need each other to run that race.
