Tonight’s the night we’ll discover is Lia’s prophecy about Mitchell will come true. Yep, the [[Being Human (TV Series)|Being Human]] finale is almost certainly going to end in a wolf-shaped bullet. But from which direction is that bullet going to come?
The chief suspect, grizzled werewolf McNair, died at Herrick’s hands in the last episode. So we can rule him out. We can also rule out Nina, who got stabbed during an encounter with Herrick and is now in intensive care. It’s uncertain whether she’ll survive, let alone the baby wolf she’s been expecting throughout the series.
That leaves two possibilities – McNair’s adopted son Tom, who may blame Mitchell for leaving his father at Herrick’s mercy. More likely in my book is George, who was last seen rushing to Mitchell’s aid after discovering Nina reported him to the police. When George discovers everything that Mitchell’s been hiding, plus Nina and the baby’s lives in the balance… well, will George be so understanding? I don’t think so.
The episode synopsis for The Wolf-Shaped Bullet seems to support this, but we won’t know until tonight what’s really going to happen:
Following Nancy’s investigation into the Box Tunnel massacre, Mitchell finds himself trapped by the police. Desperate to escape, Mitchell discovers that help is at hand – albeit from an unlikely and untrustworthy source. Annie is heartbroken but stands by Mitchell and returns to purgatory in search of answers. She finds Lia but things are not as they seemed. This was never a game to Lia – this is revenge. A guilt-stricken Mitchell tries to make amends but, as the revelations pile up, and with Nina in a critical state, George must decide whether he can stand by his best friend.
Just a personal opinion, but I believe that Mitchell needs to pay for his crimes. He’s been furtive and deceitful to his friends, bringing danger to their door. They had to move to Wales on account of his crimes. And I’d prefer it if Annie wasn’t quite so rose-tinted in her view of the vampire.
