With only a few episodes of Being Human remaining, it’s almost time to say goodbye to Aidan, Josh, Sally and Nora. Even though the decision to end the show was made for all the right reasons (check out our interview Sam Witwer where we discuss that very topic and much more!), it’s still hard to let go of our favorite supernaturals. Here are three ways we would like to see the show end on a high and satisfying note…
Don’t Sink The Ships
In the last few episodes of Being Human, let’s hope they don’t sink our favorite ships and leave us with a sad ending. Now that it looks like our favorite “will-they, won’t-they” vampire-ghost duo may actually be on the verge of becoming a couple, it would be cruel and unusual punishment for the writers to deprive us of a full on “Saidan” or “Ailly” relationship. Sally (Meaghan Rath) and Aidan (Sam Witwer) have grown closer and closer over the last four seasons, and even if he can’t remember the alternate timeline when they were a couple like Sally does, let’s hope after her recent revelation he realizes what fans everywhere already know- these two are meant to be.
As for Josh (Sam Huntington) and Nora (Kristen Hager), their relationship has surely had its ups and downs, emphasis on downs since the wedding. With Josh’s cheating and not getting no means no (remember that scene where Nora had to pull the knife?), it’s hard to think that there’s any hope for these two, but wouldn’t it be nice to see the old Josh return and somehow make things right with Nora?
A Little Bit of Peace
If Sally & Aidan and Josh & Nora can’t have happily ever afters, most viewers would probably be ok with it as long as each of them finds a little peace. All four of our main characters have a lot weighing on their consciences. It certainly hasn’t been easy to be a ghost, vampire or werewolf in Boston, and a lot of blood has been shed there, and in the past (especially for our sometimes bloodthirsty killer with the heart of gold, Aidan).
For Sally, maybe the best thing could be having her door return. Moving on and letting go of her desperate attempt to be more human again would be a satisfying end to her story. As much as it would pain many viewers, Aidan having a similar fate to the original Being Human‘s resident vampire, Mitchell, might be the only way for him to finally stop repeating his cycle of murder and regret and get some relief from his constant guilt. Peace might be a little harder to come by for Nora and Josh, but there has to be some way to wrap up their stories and leave us with the feeling that’ll it’ll all turn out okay.
We’ve already learned from Sally’s trip through the wormhole how different their lives could have been, and she seems desperate to keep the horrible things she saw from happening. Here’s to hoping she succeeds and that all four get the peace they need, even if it means they have to move on from each other.
The Butterfly Effect
But what if everything Sally is doing to prevent the horrible things she saw, like Aidan at Josh’s throat and Nora with an addiction problem, cause all of it to come true? It may not be the most popular of ending options (and would definitely make the first two options impossible), but it would make for an emotional and climatic finale. Who says every ending has to be a happy one?
