In The Morning is the sixth episode of the second series of Being Human.


Annie befriends the psychic Alan Cortez who lost most of his "sixth sense" in an accident and has been unable to communicate with spirits since then. His once awful stage show now serves to help ghosts send their final messages to loved ones - something Annie does as well when her mother attends the show.

George's relationship with Sam gets more serious, but when a parent-teacher night falls on a full moon, it forces George to lie about his plans to cover up his secret.

Mitchell plans to leave the coven to start a life with Lucy, but unbeknownst to him Lucy helps Kemp stage an explosion in the funeral parlor, killing most of the vampires.


Flashback - 1972. This episode shows us the origin of Kemp's hatred of vampires; as a young vicar, he saw his wife and daughter killed by them.
