from Being Human (UK) episode “The Pack” (air date February 13, 2011)
I am a sucker for divided spaces and the framing and mise-en-scene here quickly and beautifully conveys the uncertainty and space between Annie (left, played by Lenora Chrichlow) and Mitchell (right, Aidan Turner). [spoilers!] For those unfamiliar with the series, Annie is a ghost and Mitchell a vampire - and, in the most recent episodes of season 3, the two have begun a tentative romantic relationship. It is, as you might imagine, a bit difficult.
The stairs also allude to Annie’s death, as she was pushed down the stairs by her fiancee (which occurs before the series begins and in a different house). Placing Mitchell on the stairs and having Annie join him there twists the allusion slightly.
