There was a time I avoided spoilers for ‘True Blood’ like the plague, because it was the show I most looked forward to in an empty summer. Now I’ve been reading them hoping for something awesome. The writing this season has just been sloooooowwwwwww!
Just some brief thoughts on the latest show, before the spoilers. Though at this point I think I’ve posted these all in the shoutbox.
I was a little disappointed in the rise of Lilith. I can’t figure out yet if she’s real or a hallucination brought on by the blood. Now that they drank all the blood, will they be able to ever see her again once their high wears off? I would assume after all the hoopla over Lilith that we’ll see her again at some point.
I’m still really looking forward to finding out which vampire killed Sookie’s parents. I hope we find out this season too, and aren’t left hanging. As this is one of the stories I’m enjoying, that will piss me off!
I was glad that Jason shot Jessica in the head. Actually that scene was hilarious. She’s become such a spoiled brat, which sucks as I used to really love Jessica.
Hoyt is also a character I used to love, and now he’s gone and gotten himself mixed up in a “love” hate-group. I definitely see Hoyt ending up taking the fall for them and getting caught. I think the guy who showed up at the hospital and was caught by Sam was a decoy. They are up to something bigger and needed to distract him.
The Pam and Tara relationship has gone all weird. I’m beginning to think they are going to become lovers.
Alcide’s story trying to become pack master is boring me as much as Terry and his genie. That’s a shame as I really like Alcide, or at least looking at him when he’s on screen. I had hopes for an Alcide and Sookie hook-up finally, but now he’s all into his 2nd in command. Oh and that red headband he had on was just ridiculous! Who dressed him?
I’m glad that Emma’s grandma came to her senses about J.D. and the pack doing V as Alcide told her. Maybe there is hope she isn’t going to be a total bitch . . . pun intended.
Is Debbie’s tooth still under Sookie’s fridge? You know someone is going to find it at some point!
I think that’s about all I gotta say . . . onto the spoilers!
