We've been following this project since it was first announced that an adaptation of Kelley Armstrong's novel Bitten was in the works. And now, here it is! Check back weekly for episode recaps from Jackie Lester the day after the show airs in the U.S. on SyFy (and remember that in Canada the show will be airing a couple days earlier, on Saturdays on Space). Catch up with recaps for episodes 1x01, 1x02, 1x03, 1x04, and 1x05.
Note: This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Bitten, including last night's Season 1, episode 6, “Committed.” Enjoy!
The nighttime Toronto skyline is in full view as this episode opens. The background audio’s music combines with the sounds of kissing. Elena and Philip are in a post-coital moment, beaming like love sick teenagers. Philip comments that they haven’t left the house in two days, which Elena has absolutely no issue with. They should have been spending some of that time looking for a wedding gift for Becky; neither appears overly concerned with this. Elena says, emphatically, “I’m starving” (surprise, surprise.) Philip tells her to contact the takeout place (again!), that they have ‘their’ address on file. Elena picks up on the hint at co-habitation, which was primarily decided on by Philip because Elena had been at his place constantly since she’d gotten back to town. It’s a weak attempt, but Philip follows up with a joke about Elena “mov[ing] in by stealth.” Elena says she wouldn’t do that, based on her lack of desire to cook or clean. Philip ups the ante with an offer of a cleaning service if she’ll agree to make it a permanent arrangement. Something about the mention of this service gets Elena back ‘in the mood,’ effectively evading the serious conversation with round…whatever…of their sexcapades.
