How’s your True Blood watching going?
Episode 4 preview…
Our True Blood nights seem to be flying by. We’re already staring down the barrel of episode 4?!!!! Extra depressing since this final season is only 10 episodes long. Anyway I thought I’d take a quick minute to discuss the happenings…
WARNING IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE FIRST 3 TB EPISODES DO NOT READ ON!!!
I’M SERIOUS! DON’T READ ON!
Ok, firstly… BOOOOOO!!!!! Why did they kill off Alcide! I care about him as a character a lot more than I care about characters like Lettie Mae (Tara’s mum) and even worse than the fact he was killed off, why did they kill him off in such a non-scene. It seemed a wee bit of an anti-anything to have him shot in a passing camera angle. His character definitely deserved something more. If you’re going to kill off a character like that then do it with some effort. Tara was also killed off in a non-way (her death didn’t even get camera time except for the before and after) But that I could live with, it was a different way to approach it. Now after adding Alcide to the non-event death it just seems a wee bit bitter. Lets hope more characters don’t get added to the body count… Also, I would like to note… Like Kristal and I discussed, as IF Alcide and Bill wouldn’t have heard the shooter in the trees. Ridiculous.
This brings me to Sookie and Bill, Alcide is out of the picture now, seemingly so is Eric (more on that soon) So now suddenly Sookie and Bill are having deep and meaningful conversations about life and love? And conveniently he’s ‘not the same vampire who did terrible things to her’ since he was drained last season? If this is a play to have these two end up together I am unimpressed.
Now to the next issue. Eric. I’m sure you all were hoping Eric would be back after last seasons events…
Good news is that he is back. Bad news is, seriously they’ve given him Hep V?! And for some reason that’s turned him into some wuss of a vampire that’s just laying around waiting to die? That is not the Eric that has been portrayed right through this series. Not at all. So not only do I feel a bit miffed that he’s got whatever that zombie vampire illness is, but I now have to put up with him being a shadow of his former character. Come on, us viewers need a little smidge of good to get us through the last ever season!
And who the heck had even heard of this ‘Sylvie’ before episode 3’s flashback scenes. I’m not buying it.
I’ve decided to finish on a good note, with the things/characters that have Kristal and I enjoying TB… Lafayette. Honestly, love this character. Always have, he’s just freaking awesome. Jason Stackhouse. Hilarious, love that he keeps the humor ticking over that this show needs. (especially this season) Also his eye-candy appeal is not hurting either. Pam!!! Who doesn’t love Pam. I wish that she was getting way more screen time this year so I’m hoping we start to see more of her soon. And finally, Kristal and I both agree that it’s so good to have the story based back in Bon Temps. The last few seasons have seemed like they’ve been everywhere BUT Bon Temps, so we’re loving it.
So we haven’t quite decided where this is going yet… we do have a few ideas. A few hopes and a few fears. Luckily a lot can change in the last 7 episodes… otherwise, could we possibly be looking at the apocalypse? I’d love to hear your thoughts. What are you loving? What are you not?
