The best TB episode so far this season. So many things happened at the same time. I could follow all storylines except the whole Iraq event.. what's the deal?
Vampire and emotion. Funny thing to comment on, because normally these would not go together. Well, TB proved us wrong, again. The whole Pam-Eric scene reminded me of Godric -- ah.. too bad he isn't here.
I also liked Tara in this ep. She got finally more: a real connection to her maker. Interesting to see what will happen next in that relationship.
...Now, the Jason story with the fairies could have given us more...I mean if Jason and Sookie are brother and sister then he is fairy too and isn't he suppose to be a were panther as well? When is that going to happen?
Well so far I like this season. I love how "real" Pam/Eric scenes were. I also like that even thought Pam don't like Tara much...she respect Eric's bloodline more. What I got from the scene with Pam and Tara feeding on the human was how she was telling her to take her time and not kill the child. She was basically telling her that she was in control just like Bill did when he was talking to her in Ericâ€™s office. As I was reading others post I see most hate Taraâ€™s character but I for one wish the writers would stop making her out to be â€œthe angry black womanâ€ on hereâ€¦not all of us act that wayâ€¦just saying. Give the girl a real story line. I am a little tired of Jessica and the Jason back and forth storylineâ€¦either let them get together or give us some new eye candy to look at. As for the shifters I am wondering who killed them...I would put my money on the Alfa less wolf pack. The Terry scene was okay and something different but keep it moving...Now, the Jason story with the fairies could have given us more...I mean if Jason and Sookie are brother and sister then he is fairy too and isn't he suppose to be a were panther as well? When is that going to happen?
I presume whoever referred to the definition of "decimate" may have watched the Monk episode where he stated it means to decrease by one tenth. However, it also has a broader definition, meaning "to cause great destruction or harm to"
By the way, I love the term "Snoozi" in reference to Sookie.
What an awesome paragraph to finish the review? Your reviews are really a joy to read....Brilliant stuff!
(Don't take that to mean, I agree with even half of the stuff you said ;-) )
The best thing this season has been the intro of the authority & roman. At long last we know why vamps came out of the closet. Humans are dumb but they have huge armies and like to kill things. If they found out the vamps would be destroyed. (If roman was telling the truth.) Also the air of legend is nice Salome, the Judas dagger, etc. I am wondering if gentleman Bill is a sangunista, (perhaps leader?) He might have freed Russell. Turning Bill evil would really be an improvement. Eric/Bill & Eric/Pam are the best storylines. Alcide is ok even with snoozie. Jessica is as always wow. Why jason girl? Lafy is always a scene stealer. Right now I have given up on everything else. Unless Tara is brought into the Sanguinistas, please please Tara meet steak.
@Rose I never said it had to be "Sookie Hour" HOWEVER...Sookie IS (like it or not) the main character........
After thinking again about what Pam said to Tara when she brought that girl to her to feed on and what she said, I'm thinking it is possible that Pam is involved in Russell's release.
Can't wait for me Tara/Pam scenes.
Show needs a central, relatable heart driving it. Bill and Eric, as great as they are, could never fill in those shoes just by virtue of being what they are.
I myself thought the Terry flashback was a godawful waste of screentime. Everything about it was completely cliche. A little middle eastern town getting bombed and a soldier yelling about how much he loves America, then a civilian getting shot with a, "how do you like Bush now?" line. Could we get any more tired/stale than that old message? It may have felt fresh on a vampire show, but it was truly anything but.
Other failures include Sam's scene (because who really cares that two random shifters were killed?), and the whole faery dance club party (while it's great that we finally see them again, we didn't get anything of value here).
What gave me hope is that it seems the show is finally ready to make Sookie a key player again and bring her into the main storyline (Russell, the Authority). They've acknowledged the problems with her character and dragged her through a slump of self-realization and now, if we're lucky, she's ready to be a true main character again - because the show does need a central, relatable heart driving it. As great as Eric & Bill are, they could never fill in those shoes just by virtue of being what they are.
