Being Human Season 3 Clip Shows Aidan Battling Temptation

One of the things I really liked about last night's Being Human was the conversation between Sally and Aidan, wherein she reminded him that she and Josh used to be enough for him. Josh has been off the wagon for more than a season now, and it's about time he at least tries "being human," I think. Given the dangers of blood drinking for vampires these days, now seems as good a time as any to give up feeding directly from humans.

The sneak peek video from next Monday night's episode ("Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Mouth"), shows what appears to be some serious withdrawal on Aidan's part as he answers the door and is greater by a very pretty, very drinkable friend of Nora's.

So, he's hallucinating his victims. That's not a good sign. But it is a good sign that he's trying. I really want to see the show get back to the days when Josh, Aidan and Sally were kind of close-knit, and I think to do that, they need to be battling their inner demons, not succumbing to them. Of course, right now Aidan's really the only one of the three of them with an inner demon to battle. And I do think things get more interesting when they have their little slip-ups, but after a season of Aidan going full vampire, it's good to see him trying to regain control of that aspect of his life (or undeath).

In other news, Nora's friend is noticeably cute. Any chance she might be Aidan's next love interest? Unless she thinks he's a big weirdo for declaring himself "not a junkie" on their first meeting. The crooked grin might be enough to get him out of that, though.

Being Human airs Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET on Syfy.
