Being Human: No Care, All Responsibility  
I'm so not ready to say goodbye to this show.

Given the fate that befell Mitchell after the Box Tunnel Massacre, I'm pretty certain that Hal's going to get a stake in the heart at the show's conclusion. As much as I love Hal, I can't say he doesn't deserve to die at this point. Such is the brilliance of this show. I adore the character to pieces but the writing is such that after seeing so many people die at his hands, I can't pretend that he's some innocent victim of his own nature. He is dangerous and there have been too many casualties at this point to keep forgiving it. And as much as I mourn the death of Hal and Tom's friendship (but maybe they'll make up before the end???), it can't really hold a candle to the gut-wrenching saga that was George and Mitchell's story. And as much as I like Tom, I feel like he got the short end of the stick in this episode. He's basically a pawn who is getting played waaaaaaay to easily.

Alex was my favorite in this episode with her tenacious sleuthing to her rather mature way of approaching the tension that still existed between her and Hal. Her angry rant to Hal about why he had to leave was really well done. And it's rather true. He has to go because at heart, he doesn't want to be helped. Lord Hal is now too close to the surface.

I also applaud the writers and their lovely continuity. We got mentions of Allison, Yvonne, Leo, and the fact that Hal goes apparently all bizarre if he drinks Kia-Ora! I also liked Hal's approval of Tom shutting down Alex's idea of getting him some porn, saying those women could become somebody's mother. It reminded me almost right away of the factoid that Hal was born in a brothel and rather lovingly raised by all the women who worked there.

Unless the last episode gives us a slew of flashbacks and quickfire scenes, I'm going to have to make a list of things we never got to see on Being Human.
