"When I Think About You I Shred Myself" is the ninth episode of season two of the North American remake of the original BBC television series Being Human. It was directed by Stefan Schwartz and written by Mike Ostrowski. It first aired on Syfy on Monday, March 12th, 2012. In this episode, Aidan hypnotizes two young women into visiting the skinless Henry Durham so that he can feed, but things go horribly wrong. Aidan reflects upon his first encounter with Henry during World War I. Meanwhile, Sally continues her apprenticeship under the Reaper and is forced to shred the ghost of a compulsive possessor named Walter. She discovers however, that the victims the Reaper is selecting are innocent ghosts who do not actually threaten the cosmic balance as he claims. At the hospital, Josh has a ghostly encounter of his own as he reunites with Stu, his old buddy from Ithaca who was killed by the same creature responsible for turning Josh into a werewolf. Stu actually has his sights set on Josh's ex fiancée, Julia.
