ALEX! Look at you! Carving out a niche for yourself on this show! And good God, this episodes actually scared me. At one point I even let out a scream, which was weird because I was watching it on my computer with my headphones on and my dad looked at me like I was insane. But little boy ghosts are super creepy. This season is going to be epic.... especially with who will be in the next episode, but we'll get there... despite the fact that I am bursting with fountains of joy.
This episode had three main components, Hal and Tom in competition for employee of the month, Alex gets stuck with the ghost of a Victorian boy and Rook using Crumb to try to save his organization.
Hal and Tom are in competition. Again. Haven't we seen this before? Yeah, we have but the whole thing ended with a food fight and you can't hate that. Basically, Tom wants to feel like he matters, so when an employee of the month competition comes around, he sees it as his opportunity to prove himself. Of course, their boss is pining after Hal, so even when Hal purposely tries to suck at his job, Tom somehow gets screwed. It doesn't help that both of them have the devil whispering in their ear.
While this is going on, the scariest thing to ever happen in Being Human history is occurring The ghost of a little boy starts haunting Alex. It is the creepiest thing ever when she hears her name in the child's voice as water drips into the sink. Each drop whispers the name "Alex." When she turns the sink on, the most horrifying screams come with it. Terrified she runs to get Hal and Tom. Together, the three of them find the boy, named Oliver, who turns out isn't really scary so much as a pain in the ass. And kind of racist. At first he is demanding, driving Alex insane. But Tom, being awesome entertains the boy at least for a while.
