I think you write pretty fair reviews, although on occasion your bias for josh comes through :) I agree with all if this. I recorded and found myself checking to see how much was left about every five minutes. The Siren thing annoyed me. I never bought that he was so irrevocably in love with her but I never understood his love beyond guilt for the red head either.I too was waiting for suren to stake her mom. When she got staked instead I was too frustrated to care . Sally's story seemed to be a setup for next season I guess. I didn't understand her plan for going to limbo and when she shredded herself and pleaded for yge boys I sighed. She's flawed and I know they care about her but they never think about her when their consumed in their own stuff. It sucks.

I just don't get it. Aidan is supposed to be a powerful vampire, but he can barely fight! I like his character, but the writers need to let him show a little strength now and then instead of making him into such a wimp. Just because you "say" he is a powerful vampire, doesn't make him one. Show us some strength instead!! Until then, even the idea of him taking on "Mother" is a joke. And, for pete's sake, can't vampires wipe their mouths after they eat?! ugh. Josh also needs to grow some. And I used to love Sally's part - she was level-headed, honest and fun, but now her best thought was that it would be better to be in "limbo"??!! Probably won't hang around for another season, but good luck. Hopefully you can liken up the characters for those that continue to watch.

Things I liked about this season:
1) Kyle Schmid as Henry. It wasn't clear whether or not Mother killed him. But, I hope he survived and will be a recurring character next season.
2) Sally's hot alter ego, the Reaper. Let's make it clear because some people on other websites seem confused. "Reaper" IS Sally, her id. She can't hook up with him because he's her dark side. Well, she could. But, it would be narcissistic. I wish there was a way the actor could be a recurring separate character because I like watching him.
3) Josh finally being able to hug Sally. Josh & Aidan's inability to touch Sally gets me every time because they obviously care a lot about each other. Touch is so important to the human experience that when they are finally able to connect with her physically, it feels like such a great relief. Yes, it really sucks to be a ghost.

I HATED the few minutes I did see. I HATE MOTHER! getting rid of Bishop(and Rebecca) was a HUGE HUGE HUGE mistake. That (mother) shit is boring as hell. Sorry. I did not enjoy this season, I actually missed about half of it. I'm very disappointed:( Especially as a Josh and Nora fan.

@Mike - While I was never a big fan of the Mother-Suren storyline, I think you misunderstood its purpose. Suren was killed because she couldn't be what her mother wanted her to be. All she ever wanted to do was love Aidan and live somewhere in peace, apart from all those "royal" responsibilities; perhaps visit old mom on holidays, etc. She loved them both and shouldn't have been made to choose. 99% of the other vampires are able to live like that (because they have makers, not royal moms). So, why not her? In the end, it was clear to me that love won over fear. Mom could not make her kill Aidan. To me, that proved she was strong, not weak. Ironically, her mom believes that bowing to her every whim indicates a strong daughter when really, the opposite proved true.

Couple things that bothered me, plot wise:
1. Who told Norah about this "killing the werewolf lifts the curse"? Was it the surviving pure bred twin?
2. Ray said "putting a bullet in me is like putting a bullet in him". What?

Aside from that Werewolf nonsense, it wasn't terrible. It's leaving you genuinely curious about the fate of each character and will be a decent place to pick up next year, my problem is that literally nothing has changed. Mother will still be the main villain, Josh will still be a Werewolf.
I suppose the main plot point for next season is getting Sally out of limbo, which doesn't sound very promising.

I give it a C+, didn't wow me but it could have been worse.

Suren got what she deserved, she had the perfect chance to kill her mother and then take the leadership herself, she was inches away with a stake in hand, she could have easily done it and surprised the mother, but she wimped out. So she got what she deserved.

So why can't Aiden just dig himself out with his vampire strength in a couple of hours when everyone has left? Pretty sure he could do it.

So happy that Sorien is dead , she is not right for Aiden !! you know Josh and Nora will still be werewolves, and what's his name will get away !! Sally going into Limbo to save the other ghosts she put there was a brave move and Im sure she will come back soon..

This season I did not like the lead they picked for Aiden to love I didn't feel a thing for them !! And I didnt like her looks or acting...Yuk !!

As for Josh and what's her name , when she got struck by the car and told Josh she always loved him , sorry but that was heart felt and made me sad. I felt the emotion more from their relationship..

Mother SUCKS and I cant wait for Aiden to kick her butt and get rid of that whole story line ..

Two words; not impressed. Really? That was the grand scheme for the Season Finale? To answer nothing? Really? I'm trying to figure out why people thought it was a great finale, sorry I just can't go there. As was mentioned, in all finales there is at least one story that comes to a conclussion, but here it just became nonsense. Ugh. Season 3? More of the same fun and joy? meh, we'll see. I do know that in 8 or 9 months I won't be eagerly awating the return of the show.

@AntonioSaucedo Forgiven! Don't chew my head off on the next full moon and I won't reap you unnecessarily. ;-)

@Kate Totally right on the homage to UK Being Human, but the writer's have sworn not to take story from there, so it gets confusing when they do. How could we NOT compare those two stories?
