"Being Human" season 4 continued Monday, Jan. 20, with episode 2, "That Time of the Month," in which a few things were revealed about Suzanna (Katherine Isabelle), and during a recent press call, Sam Witwer discussed what we learned.
In the latest "Being Human" episode, Aidan and Suzanna reconnected, and she told him about Bishop (Mark Pellegrino) turning her. She also told him that Isaac had "died a grandfather," but the truth was that her craving to feed got to be so great that she killed Isaac without meaning to, and Bishop refused to turn him or kill her. To punish herself, Suzanna's nightly routine included flogging herself.
Should Suzanna tell Aidan the truth? "She better not tell me," Witwer said. "If I were her, I wouldn't tell him." Speaking of secrets, Kat doesn't know that the woman she talked to at the faculty mixer was actually her boyfriend's supposedly dead wife. "[Aidan's] been having a human relationship, which is miraculous to me," the actor admitted. "He's been going to the movies and he's been going to restaurants and pretending to eat sushi and, you know, watching TV and reading in bed with this woman. And it's incredible to him. It's an incredible thing that he's interested in protecting. You know? Because it works – the relationship works. It is a good relationship."
However, just because their relationship works, and they have now both said "I love you" doesn't mean it's going to be smooth sailing. "The problem is that Kat doesn't know nor understand some of the pieces inside of Aidan, some of the darkness," Witwer said. "So he's got a relationship that works, but there are certain elements that his woman is not let in on and can't be let in on. So then this other woman shows up who was aware of these things and they have a history and that's very tricky. In a way she's kind of like a watermark for Aidan because she's the only person who has seen him before all of this stuff happened to him."
How will Aidan handle having these two women in the same city? "It will be interesting to see how he deals with that. How is he going to protect the relationship with Kat? Or is he going to try to pursue something with Suzanna? Or does he even know who Suzanna is anymore? It's been 200 years. People change quite a bit. It's complicated." Witwer wondered.
Do those questions mean that Suzanna will be sticking around? The short answer is yes. "You're going to see a very different character than you saw in season 3. She's quite different. She's got a fun energy and she's maybe a different type of vampire," he previewed. "The psychology of her character is certainly interesting. It's not something I expected. And when we started playing with it on set it was really fun to see how that goes. I'm trying not to spoil it, but her – it's a very different idea than I've seen in "Being Human" – either the British or our own. They did something very different, which I like. I like that a lot. I like different."
"Being Human" season 4 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Syfy.
