George's reunion with his parents was like an episode of Jeremy Kyle gone wrong, but let's be honest we wouldn't want it any other way. So when we were offered a trip to the family home of 'Sandscastle' how could we refuse?

Not only did we want to give Ruth a hug, Marcus a punch in the face (again) and steal George Snr's salt and vinegar crisps, we also wanted to show you guys exactly how these fantastic scenes were made.

However, it's not all fun and games. Nancy's net is closing on Mitchell and Herrick goes ever stronger in the attic... Two more episodes left and so much left to see.

Any predictions for next week? Don't forget a new episode of Becoming Human has just been released and there are some pretty big revelations, so make sure you check it out.

    Please stop giving Annie the stupid pills!!

  • Comment number 2.

    Oh Annie, you're going to regret this.

  • Comment number 3.

    Oh lordy, Annie, what *are* you doing, girl?

  • Comment number 4.

    No, Annie, noooooooooooo...!!!!

  • Comment number 5.

    OMG i have no idea if that was a good episode or not, because my freeview signal was sooo bad, it even completely cut out at one point! I'll have to watch it again tonight to get the gist of it.
    UGH!! so disappointing.

  • Comment number 6.

    Just a thought: This week we have almost 2 disconnected stories? and Mitchell was loosing his mind last week but this week he's much more composed? is it me or it felt a bit off?

  • Comment number 7.

    Wondering if Annies unfinished business is learning how to not be quite so aspergers and spot men in shifty, lying boyfriend mode. To be fair to her, it took me a couple of decades..

  • Comment number 8.

    @5 - My Freeview signal vanished before the episode had even started.
    I had a panic attack, and ended up streaming it online.
    I think I'm due a re-watch as well.

  • Comment number 9.

    Thank you for another brilliant episode! The acting, the humour, the darkness, the tension!

    Just everything, so thank you again BH team!

  • Comment number 10.

    Another great episode!

    BTW am I the only one who wants Mitchell to get caught? I really don't like the character at all.

  • Comment number 11.

    I just knew that if I bigged it up too much and got over-excited, it would turn out to be a bit of a let-down. I got a room but the thrill had gone..
    Roll on something with a bit more bite next week..

  • Comment number 12.

    Totally agree about Annie and the stupid pills :-/

  • Comment number 14.

    Oh my!I was chuckling a lot through this! Well, the bits with George Snr. Can't believe he was alive!

    Oh no Annie! This is going to end in tears!

  • Comment number 15.

    i think they are stringing us out a bit. last week was such an epic intense episode that they cant keep up that height of emotion .dont worry it will build again leading up to the finale when sure we will all be screaming at our televisions!

    funny stuff with the sands.really want herrick to come back to 'normal' he was such a great character and mitchell needs him

    two things to say to characters..mitchell think! herrick already told you secret to heir ( i know it was 60ish years ago!)


  • Comment number 16.

    11.- Agreed. It felt off to me. They had us all week waiting...and it was (for me) very anti-climatic. How will they resolve all this stuff in 2 episodes???

  • Comment number 17.

    And oh yeah, Mitchell, a wee life lesson for you, burn evidence immediately!

  • Comment number 18.

    I'm beginning to think I only watch for the sex and violence..

  • Comment number 19.

    17. lol! been saying for weeks..why oh why did you keep that book!

  • Comment number 20.

    I quite enjoyed tonight - more of a contrast between the ongoing story and the one off stuff. Herrick is creeeeeepy - how good is Jason Watkins! Annie is brilliant - wonder how long it'll take for the penny to drop now? Was good to see relaxed Mitchell early on in the episode but the contrast was quite marked when he was in the attic.
    Carrying on from earlier - he looked all right clean shaven and smart - best flashback hair yet!
    Loved James Fleet as George Sr - what brilliant casting!
    Did George's mum remind anyone else of Molly's mum? I can't remember her name!

  • Comment number 21.

    First up....thanks BHProductions for another fun and informative behind the scenes vid....looks like that barbie was fun even in the rain!

    Episode 6....a combination of raw and moving emotions throughout. A very different episode from previous ones....but I did enjoy it

    And we thought that it was Nina pushing the Box Tunnel buttons...but no, Annie is managing that all on her own.....the crash is going to be huge when she realises that not only is Mitchell guilty but that she has led the police to him.

    Mitchell particularly dark in this episode....and I honestly thought Herrick was going for her throat.

    Could George's dad ( loved James Fleet's performance!) really 'see' him as a werewolf and how was that possible?

  • Comment number 22.

    It was a bit anti-climatic but I think that maybe they are setting us up for future stories (introducing George's parents etc, what next, his ex-fiancee?)

    Did Mitchell give a fake surname for Daisy to the policeman?

    I can't believe Annie is so blind as to what is under her nose!

  • Comment number 23.

    Haeresis. Yes, you are alone. ALL ALONE.

  • Comment number 24.

    OK, for the A/M shippers: AT LAST Mitchell said that he didn't want to die because he had something to live for, he couldn't loose her (Annie), not now. Focus Mitchell, that's it.

  • Comment number 25.

    13. Lol! another 80s chick!

    was concerned when discussing james fleet last week that people didnt imediately think 4 weddings and a funeral...thought was just showing my age!

  • Comment number 26.

    I felt like screaming "no Annie you idiot!"..but if Mitchell had burnt that damn folder in the first place, or (dare I say)... actually told Annie then he wouldn't have this problem!

    Sorry, rant over. Other than that I enjoyed this episode, especially the scenes with George and his father.
    Even had a Mitchell & Annie moment, albeit a small one ;-)

  • Comment number 27.

  • Comment number 28.

    Great episode, Annie is not gna like what she discovers
    Why dnt she just read Mitchells aura?

  • Comment number 29.

    Okay by now some people will have pointed out that if George senior was alive both George and Nina should have smelt him.

    So an answer that isn't suspension of disbelief.

    George and Nina both see being a werewolf as a 'manageable' condition they try to ignore these extra senses.

    Now comes the reason they were in his caravan would have assumed his scent was from the fact he lived there not him.

  • Comment number 30.

    21. so many theories discussed on this blog and none of us saw annie as being the one who ultimately would lead to mitchell being outed!!

    great writing BH! always throwing in the curve ball!

  • Comment number 31.

    Oh I loved when Annie started the tangent of Cheryl Cole lyrics haha!

  • Comment number 32.

    Drunkkath [25] - 'fraid so.

    Dorina [21] - doesn't George Snr. just think that George is bonkers?

  • Comment number 33.

    "Tomb service" Remember that from series 1??

  • Comment number 34.

    29. George seems not to be able to distinguish between ghosts/human. S01 ep. 1, he thought Annie was a squatter or something, but true, by now they should know better.

    It didn't make too much sense all the first interactions between George and George Snr, viewed retrospectively. So, George Snr was cool as a cucumber with George telling him that he was a ghost (when he clearly knew he wasn't) or is it that George Snr thought George was a bit...loopy???

  • Comment number 35.

    Oh dear, I really do feel disappointed. After 3 fabulous episodes full of intrigue, tonight let me down in the same way that episode 2 did. The producers could have done so much more with George's reunion with his parents than a re-run of 'Parent Trap'. How much better if George had actually been able to confide in his father and be truly understood?

    Annie - bless her - deserves so much better than being cast as such a ditz. After last week's episode when she seemed right back on form, I could only cringe at her actions this week.

    Let's hope that having Lord Toby back in charge next week will bring some continuity back into the proceedings.

  • Comment number 36.

    I cant believe Annie is going to get Michell caught and i was kind of disappointed withe the two separate story lines because there wasn't much interaction between Mitchell, George and Annie together witch is what i think makes the show so much better.

    Also i felt Herrick was rather left out of tonights episode after last weeks being all about his return. At times i would actually forget he was there until it showed the outside of the attic and i would be like "oh yeah...hey Herrick"

  • Comment number 37.

    35. Fitzov. Couldn't agree more. There is a chasm between this episode and the previous one(s).

  • Comment number 38.

    I'm disturbed by how much Mitchell looked like Timothy Dalton in the flashback. Yeek!

  • Comment number 39.

    George and George Snr - they are so great together. And loved creepy Herrick.

    Last episode was so dark it was a relief to have some light moments - Annie quoting Cheryl Cole loooooollllll!!!!

  • Comment number 40.

    Saffz. Yes. Old jokes, but then, vampires are old :/

  • Comment number 41.

    Funny: When the policewoman said that somebody could have something against Mitchell's hair. Do you think it was a little nod towards the hardcore fans and our discussions?

  • Comment number 42.

    LOL 38 I thought that too. Admittedly a young Timothy Dalton, but definitely a resemblance.

    Fave line of the week was definitely "It’s difficult to find the right words at times like this. Why not rely on those of the literary greats like Auden... and Cheryl Cole."

  • Comment number 43.

    41. I do so hope so. Be nice to feel interactive :)

  • Comment number 44.

    Another fantastic episode....Annie - what are you doing???? She thinks she's helping Mitchell, when she's doing the complete opposite! But then if Mitchell hadn't kept that book...none of this would've happened!

    Not quite believing that George couldn't tell whether or not his dad was a ghost...surely he can tell??? I did think James Fleet was a great choice to play George's Dad....and the fleece...just like George.

    Once again, Herrick was wonderfully terrifying.

    I need a re-watch...now!

  • Comment number 45.

    34. yes was wondering that when we found out G snr wasnt dead but becomes clear later on that he thinks he has had some sort of mental breakdown hence all the talk of ghosts and werewolfs
    35. we are dealing with people who are 'being human' and would never understand the other world
    38 didnt like AT with short hair - looked like cross between timothey dalton and marti pellow!

  • Comment number 46.

    Thank you Ewan for the links! You're so very kind to us people in the "non-available" area.

  • Comment number 47.

    45. Marti Pellow!?? Now I'm really scared :((

  • Comment number 48.

    I feel a quite letdown by this weeks episode. The Longerst Day was a stunning piece of tv and i thought it was the one that kicked a patchy series into gear.

    Tonight, just as the momentum of plotlines and theories build to the series end we get a show that has what is essentially an unconnected (and weak) background story taking up forty minutes and.. oh by the way: the police are onto Mitchell. And Herrick? Whose Herrick? And Annie helping the police? As i twist i get it but she's not stupid and this series has made her stupid. The whole Mitchell being questioned & Herrick knowing he needs blood but resisting was underplayed.

    I'm not a hater. I LOVE this show. Perhaps i had too many high hopes for tonight.

  • Comment number 49.

    Best line: 'And finally, finally i feel complete, i feel happy...i'm not ready for this to end, i am not ready to leave her...!'

    George Sr having just finished watching Titanic: 'well couldn't she have moved over a bit? That piece of wood she was floating on was massive!'

    'When you feel like we're growing apart, let us just go back..back..back..back..back..back..' Touching words there Annie!

  • Comment number 50.

    Oh I have to say this "Tomb service" - episode 5 season one Herrick telling stories of Mitchell's past - so the well bitten body on the table has been a vampire for at least 77 years. - don't know if she was blown up or not

  • Comment number 51.

    46 - it's what I do

  • Comment number 52.

    Ha ha was everyone glad to see the legendary "Tomb service!" moment? I know I was. Got to go and check series 1 DVDs later to make sure the story matches up.

    Loved George and his dad, especially the moment when they both subconciously put their arms behind their head. I catch myself doing stuff like that all the time with my dad, sitting in the same way, both folding our arms etc. Wonderfully observed.

    Trying to place the detective woman, I think she has been in Doctor Who or something, anyone recognise her?

    Ohhhh and Mitchell, when will you learn to dispose of evidence properly? The fool!

  • Comment number 53.

    Great stuff again.
    Lovely performance from Russell tonight and a beautifully judged one from James Fleet.
    But - this is my first-ever criticism of Being Human - the policewoman (Nancy) has got one of those Trans-Atlantic croaky shrill voices (rather like an ET voice) which so many actresses have adopted these days. Is it a fashion? It annoys me intensely. I think it sounds horrible.
    Apart from that it was snashing. The sooner Nancy goes (and takes her hideous voice with her) the better.)

  • Comment number 54.

    Herrick still seems to be fighting his vampire nature interesting came very close to ripping Nancy's throat out. Have to say did love the bloody tissues bit. it was a nom nom nom moment

  • Comment number 55.

    euuuggggghhhhhhh- a bit of a clunky episode this week- bits I didnt think that worked-
    1. George senior and wife suddenly getting back together not great writing there, chaps and chapesses
    2. The detective character- unbelievable and nowhere near the high calibre of actor we have come to trust BH in.
    Reminded me of a combination of Queeny from Blackadder and some forgettable am-dram.

    however- outstanding bit HERRICK through the ribbed bathroom glass door- fractured soul metaphor, anyone?

    OOOh,OOOOh and did anyone else spot poor acted detective's boss as Le Moustache vampire servant from the flashback? I did.

  • Comment number 56.

    Mitchell is still the uber coward - he had his chance to tell Annie! God damn it, why didn't he??!!!

  • Comment number 57.

    First, 30s PREQUEL! YESSSSSSSSSSS! BHP you know that I love you!
    Thank you for that!

    Then, I was frankly so on the edge of my seat I thought I'd fall off.
    In the bathroom scene I was literally hyperventilating and almost hiding behind my own fingers.

    Herrick proved to be THE villain. I'll never get tired of saying how awesome a character he is, and how brilliant JAson Watkins' interpretation is. He is the ultimate vampire, instintivley and consciously evil, creepy and totally scary.

    Annie is so smitten she's blind and she's going to mess things up, for all of them,not just Mitchell.

    The Sands'part was the light comedy relief to an otherwise extremely tense and intense episode.
    But in the end I was left with the doubt that George snr might indeed be really dead..

    And I am so excited to see how things are going with McNair in the house next week.. "something's different" And nothing good can happen when he meets HErrick.

  • Comment number 58.

    I liked the episode, wasn't my favorite though. George's dad was actually pretty loved the father and son interaction. Oh no poor sweet Annie letting her naivete get the best of her, she believes she's actually helping Mitchell by getting involved but it's going to end up in tragedy and heartbreak.

  • Comment number 59.

    So do you get to be an Old One by being smart in the first place and sorting out an heir? And why only one? Does everyone a vampire recruits become an heir? In which case if Herrick was so peeved why did he recruit Cara if he already had Mitchell? Sorry, too many questions!

  • Comment number 60.

    Also the 'stop all the clocks' being used - some might remember I did a being human version on the blog a day before Lia love the fact that it went weird.

  • Comment number 61.

    annie is going to be so desperate when she finds out mitchel did do it. i'm not sure she is going to be able to forgive him.
    nice episode. missed the adrenaline rush though.

  • Comment number 62.

    Agreeing with Haeresis here: Mitchell is one of my favourite characters but I have been getting to think he deserves to get caught. Although I am finally beginning to get the Annie/Mitchell romance. Apart from when he's being really nasty to her - if it was real life I would not think the way he acts is OK. I am quite glad Being Human isn't real life actually. Anyway.

    Today wasn't as good as last week's, which was epic, but still bloody brilliant. Loved James Fleet, even if that whole storyline was a little dumb. Is it me or was his Dad being buried by a vicar though? I thought George's parents would be Jewish?

    Glad we finally got a Daisy mention! It was irritating me that they were kind of skirting around her involvement, presumably just because they haven't brought Amy Manson back..? I feel like that's being handled a bit oddly. I don't like unevenness damnit!

  • Comment number 63.

    62. Usually the jewish religion is passed down to the other line, so if the other is a jew and the dad isn't, the son would be "automatically" considered jew.

  • Comment number 64.

    62. ... and by "other" I meant *mother.
    My M key has tajen stupid pills too..

  • Comment number 65.

    Oh did anyone else just love it when Annie was at the police station and she was pretending to be a cop? I thought that was absolutely fantastic, i think Lenora may be the best actress I've ever seen.

  • Comment number 66.

    It's a difficult one, cause Annie's doing the right thing - but it's not going to end in good news!

  • Comment number 67.

    56. think mitchell has missed opportunity to tell annie..too much at stake now ( pardon the pun) has too many other things to deal with that the last thing he needs to be worrying about is annie at the mo.

    mcnair back next week..hope herrick is back to full strength as would really enjoy that battle

    think annie will surprise us all in the end..she will be mitchell's saviour

  • Comment number 68.

    60. showing age again..'stop all the clocks' 4 weddings and a funeral flashback!

  • Comment number 69.

    Oh and the A/M moments were so cute, loved when Mitchell said "I am not ready to leave her" or something like that. Why didn't he just burn the books before the cops came knocking? And did I see some guilt and fear on Nina's face when Annie mentioned Mitchell finding the person who called the police. And I actually held my breath when Herrick came into the bathroom to speak to the lady detective (I forget her name) wow I thought she was a goner.

  • Comment number 70.

    65 - YES!!!!!! She needs to be made aware of this fact... hello Mr P, please let her know, x

  • Comment number 71.

    Perhaps not one of my favourite episodes, but it was enjoyable all the same :) On one hand it felt like a filler episode, but at the same time it played a crucial role in the Box Tunnel plot. I really liked Nancy - I thought she was a goner when Herrick appeared. He is one creepy, CREEPY guy!!!!

    Loved the George/George Sr dynamic! A definite 'like Father, like Son' example if ever there was one :) And yes, also being a grammer freak, I noticed the apostrophe mistake in the paper! *sheepish grin*

    Also, and I feel a bit of a traitor for saying so, but Mitchell's character has been getting a little annoying of late. Having a BH marathon with my friend a few weeks back, we didn't realise how whingy and moany he is. And the fact he can out-right lie to people he loves and trusts, and completely get away with it... grrr! No doubt it will all turn around and bite him on the backside soon...!

    Only 2 episodes left, and I know it's all going to end in tears... :'(

  • Comment number 72.

    38- I thought Aidan looked like Timothy Dalton when I first saw him S1. I had just seen A Lion In Winter and Dalton was probally about the age that Aidan is now. Also, he looks a bit like an 60's American actor who's deceased now named Bradford Dillman. I'm really showing my age now.lol

  • Comment number 73.

    62. didnt like mitchell lying so easily to annie tonight..shows weak character..is beneath him

  • Comment number 74.

    re-62: so has your K key?! :-)

    re-55: Yes i agree. "Oh look. My husband is back from the dead. You punched my current boyfriend and now i love you again" All a bit eastenders to me.

    Despite this being a weak episode i still have faith that the last two will come good.

  • Comment number 75.

    71 - he's always been whiney, always with his pity me ways.

  • Comment number 76.

    Has Annie brought a completely new warderobe with her from the Other Side? If she can change her top, then surely she'd be able to remove said top..? Or does it sort of "grow out of" her body according to will and taste in design?

  • Comment number 77.

    Annie...nooooo!!!! it's going to come back and literally bite you on the bum!

    I too honestly thought that Herrick was going to bite Nancy, i was holding my breath just waiting for his eyes to change but he's feeling the bloodlust kicking in.

    Again i was holding my breath regarding the book, Mitchell was scary when he requested the book back...why he didn't destroy it earlier i don't know...

    The George storyline was kinda sweet i thought, i loved Nina's 'get in' when George sr finally thumped Marcus.

  • Comment number 78.

    RealMitchell [55] - The detective boss guy is a vampire?!?! Good spot!!! Perhaps this is why he wanted to stop Nancy interviewing people? He's part of the connection Mitchell was talking about; how 'they' have to stick together???

  • Comment number 79.

    75. must admit always laughed at mitchell blokey whining at the beginning but now he is looking a bit pathetic

    is supposed to be evil killer for gods sake..man up mitchell!!!!

  • Comment number 80.

    Although I think the storyline wasn't the best, it was still very engaging.... I thought vampires couldn't do things like cut their hair short and shave and that? I don't know why I thought this but all the vampires I've seen have never visibly... changed. I don't like short hair Mitchell either, not quite right there...
    Good acting too.

    Haeresis - you're very, very alone out here...

  • Comment number 81.

    76, I've noticed Annie clothing too, since I was trying to make myself an "Annie-styled-cardigan-thingie" and I was trying to figure out how it's done.
    Because it seems it can take many shapes, can be gathered, become a sort of scarf, be worn with the front open, or on the back.. I love the fact that it's so variable.

    BHProd, you should make a special extra video on the costumes. I'd love that!

    74. Or maybe it's just very late here in the future.

    71/75. Yep, Mitchell has become a bit whiney lately, but I thiunk this is what you get when you have too many secrets and trying to keep is difficult with someone so nosey as Annie around.

  • Comment number 82.

    Um, I was confused ... I thought George was meant to be Jewish, but his Dad's funeral was led by a vicar ... maybe his mum was Jewish, his dad Christian? Wasn't explained though, and George being Jewish had previously been a plot point of some relevance before ...

    Other than that, I was quite happy with the way the story was moving on. If the police had been all over Mitchell from the start and we'd gone shhhooom! into the consequences of Nina's phonecall, it would all move too fast towards the conclusion, and not give Herrick time to realise his role in the story, which I predict will be pivotal. At the moment, we understand that Mitchell is holding back from staking him because he wants Herrick's help to secure true immortality - this will prove to be another of Mitchell's poor decisions, though George's request is the bigger part of his restraint (and that was at least a good decision).

    I thought though that Herrick peering through the wavey glass, his 'secret' and Mitchell's threat to Nancy were seriously menacing and horrifying to watch. Great TV.

    My thoughts on Mitchell: He is meant to be a 'grey area' character - the writers are almost challenging you to be on his side. We pity him, we want him to confess to Annie, to win her forgiveness, we want him to escape detection so he can live happily ever after with Annie, and then we see the way he terrifies that policewoman and we want her to get him, we watch him lying to her and blaming Daisy, and we feel sickened by him, we see Annie's anguish and watch him shrink from telling her again and we despise him ...

    So, he's a 'challenging' character, but that is why I watch BH and that is why I like him so. :)

  • Comment number 83.

    Never 'posted a comment' before, guess that just shows how much I love the program. It could go on forever! Love the storylines, the characters...everything (ok particularly Mitchell!) oh so gorgeous!

  • Comment number 84.

    Piratemoose 78 and RealMitchell 55 - that moustache was worse then the Go Compare man's! Normally I miss everything so I was dead chuffed I spotted him! He was really keen to steer her away from Mitchell but he could've been more plausible than just saying 'nah it's not him'.
    I think this episode was one to let us get our breath - a calm before the storm one in time for the big finish!

  • Comment number 85.

    10 - I simply must ask: is the name "Haeresis" chosen because it sounds a bit like "Heresy"..?

  • Comment number 86.

    38-Don't know why Yeek to Tim Dalton, but if Dalton played James Bond that role could certainly be in AT's future couldn't it. I admit he'd have to clean up a bit, a good shower and then a tux,Oh my!

  • Comment number 87.

    59, not sure, I think an heir is someone you've told "the secret" to, i.e. what to do to bring you back if you've passed. Mitchell/Herrick must have recruited loads of vampires in their time, if they were all heirs then they would all know how to do it?

    Annie is coming off childish again to me, I almost could see them together after last week's episode, but now I'm back to thinking she's too childish and naive for him again.

  • Comment number 88.

    78.didnt spot boss guy either..man you really have to concentrate when watching this!

    when you think about it makes sense..the vampire community must have spotted that the BT20 was done by one of their own so they want to make sure it is resolved without exposing themselves

    maybe all is not lost for mitchell

    do we think daisy will return cos she could be the one who tells annie of mitchell's involvemnet

  • Comment number 89.

    If it's true that the guy at the police station is a vampire then it connects with the theories that the Bristol force are corrupt and know of Herrick. Surely they will find Herrick in HH?

  • Comment number 90.

    81 - Hi Indil-in-the-future! You get weird bits of material from the likes of JML and QVC etc that you can wear in about 40 different ways. I think Annie's is something similar so might be a good starting point!

  • Comment number 91.

    61 - yes, after last week's episode I thought she would totally stand by him but now I'm not so sure! They have cleverly switched things around so much this ep from the last.

  • Comment number 92.

    82. topomostro - as I wrote before, if I'm not mistaken on my religious studies the jewish religious belonging is passed down on the mother side.

  • Comment number 93.

    Haeresis - I agree with you totally, I'm hoping thats intentional though, I want to like him!

  • Comment number 94.

    81 - Indil, isn't it strange that although we're in the future we're actually getting to se BH an hour later than everybody else? It is a very unfair paradox.

  • Comment number 95.

    87 (continued) - And HE's way way way too dark and secretive for someone like her.

    Throughout vampire film and literature generally the guys seem to have a whiny moany pity me its not my fault etc thing going on. And the female vampires generally portrayed as ruthlessly practical and extra vicious and enjoying it. Look at the whole genre.
    The point being if you want a "real man", who doesn't say please save me for I am useless and only have my puppy dog eyes, then you want a.. cockney builder?

    I'm guilty of writing characters like that though. I love my dark murderers with their whiny self hate. They can't stand what they're becoming or have become and they try to convince themselves they've escaped it.

    87. think mitchell is with annie cos she is naive..he has had enough of all the evil vampires he has met in his past so annie innocence is refreshing.
    isnt that why he was drawn to george and annie in the first place cos they helped him feel 'normal'
