Hold on tight guys... this changes everything.

Lucy's betrayal, Kemp's fury and Lloyd's willingness to carry out his orders resulted in an explosive finish. Has anyone survived? Could Annie and George live without Mitchell? How will Lloyd react in his next CenSSA broadcast?

So many questions... You'll just have to wait for the answers, but in the mean time check out our exclusive behind the scenes video to see exactly how the incredible explosion was made.

This is our darkest hour. Stay strong.

    This episode was so hard to watch. I was going NOOOOOO all the way though.

  • Comment number 7.

    Devestating! Who have we lost??? PANIC! Oh I cried so much with Annie and her mum.

  • Comment number 8.

    God lol i was in tears for so much of that episode!!!

  • Comment number 9.

    Oh, and the thought of Ivan on Twitter, hilarious!

  • Comment number 10.

    I love the "Goodbye" and "Hello" on the phones, subtle that ;-P

  • Comment number 11.

    OMG!!!! (7) yeah, I was in floods with annie and her mum! Can't help but notice that the 'next time' included no Mitchell...too much suspense!
    I really reckon Annie'll be leaving by the end of the series.....

    Never really felt that much love for Ivan's character, but after hid little speech about daisy, then seeing him dead, made me cry! :(

    also, BAD LLOYD!!!

  • Comment number 12.

    mitchell had better not be dead. that's all i'm saying...

  • Comment number 13.

    Lovely explosion and yes I can so see geeking out and going along to watch :-)

  • Comment number 14.

    Ivan not dead no ash VAMPIRE remember oh yes forgot I was first

  • Comment number 15.

    Mitchell can't be dead... And Annie can't be leaving... I was so sure it was confirmed they were coming back for series 3.

    (11) It was lovely to see some humanity in Ivan "Everyone deserves a daisy"

  • Comment number 16.

    It seems Ivan does feel emotions after all. I can’t believe he saved Mitchell. I thought CenCCA was going to run in with stacks not use a boom.

    I actually felt sorry for Kemp after the intro this week.

  • Comment number 17.

    i need a hug and by the looks of it so do you lot so *massive bh airhug to everyone* xx

  • Comment number 18.

    Oh my b....y god....

    Until the explosion, I thought yeah, episode a bit quiet, not much going on apart from the odd funny moment and LucyBF being a hypocrit (after having her wicked way with our vampire...ha!)...

    And then, there was this...

    This explosion...how many have been killed, who's left? I've a fair idea who one is but it looks like Ivan's copped it...or has he? And how come vampires can suddenly be killed by fire/explosions? Is this a new rule we've not yet come across...

    Loving the line by Ivan "The way I feel now I could take out an entire branch of Argos"! lol....that was the line of the episode for me...classic...

  • Comment number 19.

    (16) Yeah touching moment when he lept on Mitchell. Oh they'll be doing a duet of Guy Love from Scrubs before we know it.

  • Comment number 20.

    that explosion was amazing

  • Comment number 21.

    (16) Yeah, I had no idea what CenSSa were going to do, I was thinking 'but they're only 3 humans, they don't stand a chance against a hoard of vampires'.....how wrong I seem to have been :p

  • Comment number 22.

    Ivan :(

    And Annie can't leave. :(

    I'd express some worry over Mitchell's saftely, but I sure he'll be alright. lol.

  • Comment number 23.

    19-lol love that song xx

  • Comment number 24.

    Yeah, nice scientific research, Lloyd. :|

    Mitchell is definitely going to pop up next episode and Ivan is still around which is a relief cos I knida like him. Loved his line about most of them being on his Twitter. :D

  • Comment number 25.

    OMG!!!!
    If they've hurt Mitchell, there will be trouble (I'm so glad theres BBC press office thingamies, I'd be going insane not knowing either way!)
    Aidan was v cute in that vid - with the camera shaking - maybe get a tripod, love?
    Excellent ep, I hope Ivan survives but I dunno. He has some fab lines did th right thing in pushing Mitchell down!
    Will blog tomorrow when I'm not in such a state! Hope everyone enjoyed it!


    P.S - Near the start when Mitchell took his top off to get to the blood stained vest.......Yay! :D
    Night all x

  • Comment number 26.

    OMG! NOT Ivan........ !!!

  • Comment number 27.

    bye guys, another *massive air hug squuueeeeeezzzee*
    xx

  • Comment number 28.

    they are vampires, already dead so how do they die? please help am confused!

  • Comment number 29.

    Wayhay, Dr. Who special effects crew from Cardiff over in bristol!! Big up the welshies!! woohoo, sorry excitement over now! :P

  • Comment number 30.

    Possible that Kemp thinks an explosion will kill vampires but no reason that he has to be right. It might be his first attempt at mass vamp killing. So far we've seen the classic stake in heart work and head ripped off by werewolf but nothing else.

  • Comment number 31.

    the shame I wanted to see more of red haired vamp girl

  • Comment number 32.

    Intense.
    Emotion filled episodes to the max!
    I always knew Lucy was bad for Mitchell, if his dead i'm not going to be happy next Sunday!
    I don't think Annie will have the guts to leave, her character always runs away, that's Annie.
    George? All i'm saying is what have you gotten yourself into NOW!? LOL
    Being Human is just tooo much :) but I love it :)
    Excellent job, well done BBC! x

  • Comment number 33.

    oh my gods... I have no words. None. :O

  • Comment number 34.

    I presume an explosion is just as good as a werewolf for ripping you apart.

    I am a bit unsure now, we saw Ivan, that means he is alive doesn't it? But some people seem to think he's dead. :S

  • Comment number 35.

    (30) Although Ivan must have thought they were in some danger to jump on Mitchell. I suppose it would do a fair bit of damage. Some vampires are very flammable, but I think if that were the case they'd all have been burning in that shot.
    It'll be a bit of an anticlimax if they all stand up and brush themselves off completely uninjoured at the start of the next episode.

  • Comment number 36.

    Jesus! and Bloody hell! and "No not Mitchell"!
    He wasn't in the preview for next week.... god i hope he's ok (but from recollection, AT has been commissioned for S3 so he should, by logic, survive) And i'll still love him even if he's scared.

    And..... YAY DANNY! I've missed him on the last few DW Confidentials, its great seeing him in action again.Love him - Danny is so brilliant. What is Aid like switching his camera off - the dodo!

    Thanks BH for another FANTASTIC episode. *Mwha*

  • Comment number 37.

    Oh god, that episode was so sad :'( & Lloyd has once again broken my heart...
    There were some great moments though and I loved the explosion [even if I didn't like *why* there was an explosion]
    And Nina's back next week! :)

  • Comment number 38.

    the fact it was a fire bomb killed the vampires all the references of dealing with vampires on a pyre means fire kills vampires

  • Comment number 39.

    Hehe I have to say I think that would be my dream job - great video Mr P thank you - you know I love the special effects stuff and that was awesome! Bye bye funeral parlour! Lol

    Oh and I didn't half giggle at Aidan "I'm such a geek" yep yep you are lol but have to say I'm a sucker for anything like that lol I love it when stuff blows up and I love gore...and people say I'm not girly? Pfft lol

  • Comment number 40.

    Oh love the Bloody Bible

  • Comment number 41.

    31 ewan - Same, I hoped we'd learn more about her.

  • Comment number 42.

    Wow...was expecting the place to be set on fire because vampires can burn ( allegedly) but wasn't expecting the bomb!
    Thanks for the explosion vid BHPrpd..great to see how it came together and Aidan Turner..you could NEVER be a geek!

    Will need to watch again tomorrow to get my head around all of the stuff in this episode..great episode by the way...loved it.

    Yes Mitchell must survive...think that Ivan will as well but will any other vampires?

    And was it Kemp's wife and daughetr killed by vampires ( wasn't he a Catholic priest...?) no matter...explained a lot about him.

    I actually thught that lucybitchface would phone Mitchell and warn him to evacuate the building..but..no....she'll get her comeuppance I'm sure.

    Loved the Annie story with Alan, other ghosts and her mum....wwaahh

  • Comment number 43.

    I think a special blog post.... George and Mitchel slideshow with the backing track "guy love" post 19 is so right! yay... Agree with Annie George and Mitchel need to get a room *tehehe*

  • Comment number 44.

    I almost forgot, Nina next week :D And is George starting to transform at parents' evening. Eek!

    Looking forward to seeing Mitchell's reaction when he finds out the truth abotu Lucy.

  • Comment number 45.

    @#39 Eagle-eyes, ditto the "I'm such a geek" but haha when Aiden knocked it off! And he jumped! Growl xx

  • Comment number 46.

    maybe after the tri vamp attack he converted to a stricter faith

  • Comment number 47.

    Yeah I def think everyone needs the air hug lol ty (27)
    so funny that Aidan knocked off the camera but to be fair it did seem pretty frightening!
    Will definitly be rewatching this episode several times- altohugh now i know to have a box of tissues next to me for all the tearful moments.

  • Comment number 48.

    Also, I've mentioned this on twitter but for all on here...what;s your thoughts about Molly? I'm certain she knows about George, but not sure why! I did think she was the girl from the daisy/ivan prequel but apparently not....definitely knows about his werewolf-ness, just can't figure out how....

  • Comment number 49.

    Dorina (42) Hey there....

    Think Daisy survives too...

    You can still become a Catholic priest if you're not actually married at the time you want to be one...you can have been married but I think can only become a Catholic priest if you're a widower, which Kemp was...I understand now why he went weirdy religious but he's completely flipped and gone bonkers...now thinks killing is fine as long as you kill the right beings, except they're the wrong ones because he's as bad/worse than the vampires etc he professes to hate..

    Hope M is only injured because he'll get better pretty fast and then watch out LucyBF and co.!

  • Comment number 50.

    @#48, I think Molly could be a witch, or possibly a seer of some kind. She knows something, I don't know if she can work it out, but she is definately sensing something

  • Comment number 51.

    When is this episode going up on iPlayer? Only its entry on iPlayeer implies that it won't be 'til Friday :S and a friend of mine missed it (SHOCK! UNSARCASTIC HORROR!).

  • Comment number 52.

    Mitchell won't know that Lucy had anything to do with it though will he? Unless she feels guilty and tells him next week. He has no reason to believe she has anything to do with the bad guys, in fact I don't think any of them are even aware of the bad guys existence, except for Nina and she doesn't know they're bad!

    Haha wow that was a really long way of saying that! *fail*

  • Comment number 53.

    48 - I reckon there's something more to Molly. I wondered if she was the prequel vampire girl, but maybe she's in league with Kemp? He seems to have a way of persuading people... *sob*

  • Comment number 54.

    @49, Two wrongs don't make a right. Lloyd is hiding behind his faith and using it as revenge for his Wife and Daughter's murder. Although, I was touched and did cry when he held his daughter.

  • Comment number 55.

    OMG! Another great episode and blog video too!! Really can't wait for the next ep now.....

  • Comment number 56.

    (53) I can;t see Molly being involved with Kemp, that'd be too weird somehow....but she knows...she knows... :p

    ooh, also, when kemp hugged lucy, did anyone else notice how creepy his face was? as if he fancied her or something?

  • Comment number 57.

    57) Lucy is becoming a surrogate daughter to Kemp to replace his dead daughter

  • Comment number 58.

    Shambolic: (56) Yes Kemp almost having some kind of religious "experience" *ahem* when he was hugging Lucy...think it was because it was such a long time since he had had any human contact with people...very, very twisted man!

    And how could Lucy NOT have warned Mitchell...

  • Comment number 59.

    oops 57 was supposed to be 56

  • Comment number 60.

    (56) I thought that when Kemp hugged Lucy he was reminded of his wife, probably the last woman he hugged. I hate him and pity him at the same time. You can see why he does what he does at least.

  • Comment number 61.

    @ 42. Lucybitchface lol

    Oh no Mitchell - please be ok!

  • Comment number 62.

    Yeh we're having quite a long Twitter conversation about Molly...think she can sense something even if she desn't know what George is

    Think that Mitchell will find out about Lucy next wek because i tink Ivan will survive and there will be evidence of the bomb so Mitchell will realise that it had to be someone who knew tha he had called a gathering....or something like that!

    And how did the body of the Chief Con disappear without any other vampire mentioning it except Ivan?

  • Comment number 63.

    (57/59) :p I hadn;t thought ofthe daughter connection, jumped straight in with the wife one....maybe why he was so involved with all the prayer and the blood-stained bible this episode, guilt perhaps, about feelings towards lucy...or maybe i'm going too far with this hahaha

    58, i thought she was going to bottle out of it, or at least after when kemp said 'shall we pray?' i thought she would walk off and leave him, like when she slammed her phone down after betraying mitchell, but no, she's too involved now :(

  • Comment number 64.

    (56) yeah was really weird lol but i saw it more as she was becoming a daughter figure that he was able to protect as he was too late to save his own daughter

  • Comment number 65.

    Trying not to read any comments here as havn't seen tonights ep yet... so BHP can you please tell the peeps on iplayer that EP5 is NOT the last one that was on!!!

  • Comment number 66.

    sorry guys a really disappointng ep for me - other eps had almost too much and this one too little. Annie's storyline was just boring and unfunny - if she wanted to resolve things with her mum she could have just visited her? George's story was slight and repetitive - and the dialogue with Moly wasnt credible. Still cant work out how Lucy has gone from researching evil genes to killing vampires en masse no matter if she is a religious nut in thrall to Kemp. Kemp's backstory was so obvious.
    How many times did we have to see Lucy and Kemp praying? we get it? Then the real action was crammed into a couple of minutes (no room even for seeing how the CI's body was sorted)
    But - great explosion and great vid - and Ivan's lines (and acting) just get better
    sorry - had to get that off my chest - I'll have to watch again to see if I can calm down.

  • Comment number 67.

    Oh no lol, well this ep was amazing, so you have a lot to look forward to -hope nothing is reuined for you =](65)

  • Comment number 68.

    Love the Behind the Scenes videos in the blog, makes us fans feel more apart of the show & to be a bit nosey hehe =D Cant believe they blew up the funeral parlour!! What next, the house? Cant wait for the next episode, like i do every week x

  • Comment number 69.

    I can't believe I haven't watched it yet, and won't be able to until at least tomorrow (away on business), it all sounds so good (as usual). I already know the synopsis for next week, and will probably know the one for ep 8 tomorrow. It's so frustrating - I want to see it all now but don't want it to end. Can it go on forever please?!

  • Comment number 70.

    do we wait for Family guy to finish before watching Being Human again I want i player

  • Comment number 71.

    (66) I agree with you on some level. It felt like everyone's story was just being moved on a few steps though I still enjoyed it it wasn't the best episode of the series.

    Still the last 5 minutes elevated it and the explosion was so unexpected and exciting plus it gives us a bit of a cliff hanger over how many lived and died. There were some nice touches and bits of humour, probably one of the funniest episodes.

    Ivan got some of the best with the Twitter and Argos lines. Plus the bit where he is giving out glasses of wine and says 'Just alcohol, none of the hard stuff, I'm afraid' made me chuckle. And I like that he really does love Daisy. :)

    Next weeks episode defintiely looks like it will be great. Toby is back writing and its the penultimate episode. Bound to be exciting as we build up to the finale. Nina's back!:D

  • Comment number 72.

    sori celticgrace i have to disapoiont you but i really enjoyed it. maybe lacking a bit of comedy but thought the story line with annie was sweet and truthfull and bringing the character back to the same girl in series 1. Maybe she could have gone to see her mum previously but she wouldnt have had someone to talk to her unless she used g or m but imagine how freaked her mum would have been for a stranger to seek her out and tell her her dead daughter was tring to contacted her. she was worried enough wen she went out of her own way to speak to annie.

    Do think george is moving way too fast though. I know he wants to live his life but is this not a bit much. and to explain away every full moon wen your living with someone will be hard.
    That molly knows something though!! they do say cildren can sence supernatual things though.

    and oh my god im loving all the half naked Aidens this series

    sori this is really long got a bit carried away lolk

    *Maddmaniactoni*

  • Comment number 73.

    72) Sorry but I've got to ask why do you sign your blog?

  • Comment number 74.

    well ep 6 is available on mobile phones there are so many blocked words I wish to type

  • Comment number 75.

    ewan:~ how comes no i player. you get it online as well as on wii but then again not l,ong to wait for it to be on bbc3 again

  • Comment number 76.

    75) sometimes i player not play fair

  • Comment number 77.

    73) dunno really lol

  • Comment number 78.

    Why dose Molly say Georges eyes go dark they go yellow

  • Comment number 79.

    Just watched Guy Love on Youtube, so funny!

  • Comment number 80.

    Oh please let Ivan survive, he's my 2nd favourite vampire. Of course Mitchell will survive - he's already signed up for the 3rd series.

  • Comment number 81.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.

  • Comment number 82.

    Guy love is that from scrubs or something else?

  • Comment number 83.

    i simply cant wait for next ep yet im so annoyed and frustrated because im going to be working :( really not happy about that. things are getting intresting for our trio

  • Comment number 84.

    78) mabey she doesn't know he's a werewolf just knows he has an 'evil' side which and dark eyes have evil connotations ..?

  • Comment number 85.

    remember molly had a nightmare that reviels our subconcious. maybe she isnt completly mortal, though as i said previously children are said to be more perceptive

  • Comment number 86.

    We all have to like Ivan now because he tried to save Mitchell. I like him anyway because he is an interesting character.

    The trio find out about CenCCA next week that will be interesting.

    I think children are more open minded and can sense the supernatural. She dose not know he is a werewolf but she can sense something is ‘wrong’ with George.

  • Comment number 87.

    i players up for those who want to know

  • Comment number 88.

    iplayer online now :)

  • Comment number 89.

    lol sorry, yours appeared as i sent it and refreshed

  • Comment number 90.

    i agree rebecca i like ivan but then again i never really disliked him but in the last few eps ive grown 'fond' of him i think he is really honest and true with himself though wen faced with something he is uncomfortable with he struggles. e.g. wen george made daisy 'feel'. he didnt know how to do with that. he likes his place in the world and doesnt want that to change

  • Comment number 91.

    George "we should get a dog" - sounds dangerous - would a dog be able to spot he was a similar species??

    Kemp "the devil was designed for temptation - he can be charming and clever and exciting - and Mitchell can be those things too .." - got something right Kemp lad

    so despite my disappointment - watching again...

  • Comment number 92.

    George and Mitchell in a toboggan? come on BHProd - we have to see this? you can do it!

  • Comment number 93.

    loved this weeks songs how long till play list and personnel downloads

  • Comment number 94.

    good for you celticgrace. there was some good one liners but still my fav from both series is 'deadly funtiture'

    i was quiet sad with the sceen of our trio on the sofa, annie leaves then mitch finaly george, then theres about a three second pause of a veiw of the empty sofa, i just thought thats what it'll be alike when it end a empty sofa :(

  • Comment number 95.

    Michell is going to be angry isn't he, I mean really, REALLY angry when he finds out what Lucy did (he must find out eventually, right?). He was a bit of an idiot for trusting her but that's love for you and a love betrayed? Ouch! Recon he's going to kill her? That might push our understanding and forgiveness a bit.

    Molly I figure isn't just sensitive because all kids are, I think the first picture we saw of her, dressed as a witch was a big hint that she has 'powers'. Probably why her mum has so little luck with men, Molly sees their true nature and drives them away.

    Annie, I just hope she uses the aura sensing trick that Sykes taught her to warn her off Kemp and Lloyd.

    George, I really really hope the clip at the end isn't misleading and he just says no, there is no cure, and walks away. Don't see that happening TBH and they are so tricksie with clips, but I'm going to cling to the hope.

    Lloyd, for all his protestations is one cold blooded SOB!

    Kemp, you can understand why he's doing what he is, but we're on the side of 'our guys' so however understandable his actions he has got to go.

    LucyBF is weak. Not strong enough to resist Michell (understandable) but not strong enough to stand up to Kemp either. Won't miss her :-p

  • Comment number 96.

    92) I still want to see the paint ball

  • Comment number 97.

    95, Nitchell is going to be REALLY angry I think...but I don't think he'll kill her, they've made him so in love with her I don't think he'd be able to, he'd have to walk away from her entirely...

  • Comment number 98.

    mitch has meny meny years experience surly he shuld be able to see the bad ones now (e.g lucy) if he cant what hope is there for the rest of us mere mortals??????????????

  • Comment number 99.

    if I were you Lucy I would look out for Daisy

  • Comment number 100.

    and yes, I blatantly meant mitchell, not nitchell ;p
