Episode 104: Escape from Dragon House

We definitely liked Fangtasia. It totally lived up to its name and was creep-tacular. I’m sure we’ve haven’t seen the last of Eric and that his interest in Sookie will grow.

The real question of this episode is what’s going on with Sam? He’s being setup to look like the killer, but that’s far too obvious. There’s growing suspicion amongst our ranks that Sam is a werewolf. We thought he was just looking for clues at Dawn’s house, but what the hell was that at the end??? Did he have a thing for her? Whether our suspicions are right or not, there is more going on with Sam than meets the eye.

True Blood Links

HBO has done some fun and creative marketing for True Blood to show you what it could really be like if Vampires were openly out in the world.... So check out these sites and get sucked into the world of True Blood:

Murder in Bon Temps

Okay, now about these murders. I don’t think it’s a vampire. Why would a vampire strangle a human instead of just draining them? It doesn’t make sense to me. I think the killer is a human that is punishing the women for sleeping with the vampires.

Any other theories?

Episode 103: Mine

Who else was completely taken by surprise with how episode 2’s cliffhanger played out? It did not go at all the way I had imagined. How could Bill invite Sookie in and let her see what was happening? How could he even consider drinking Jerry’s blood? The only explanation I could come up with is that we don’t fully understand the rules of the vampire world and that Bill was doing what was necessary in order to keep Sookie from being harmed. For me, that whole scene painted a much darker picture of Bill then I held previously.

Is Sam Really a Dog?

After watching episode 2 I am convinced Sam is a DOG!

After watching episode one I was in shock that it would take Sam so long to chase down Sookie as she ran after the Rattrays to protect Bill. Why did Sam never catch up to her? She was in the parking lot for what seemed like a long time. Sam was nowhere to be found but the dog shows up… Sam is not seen again until Sookie walks back into the bar and meets him on the way in. Sam is winded, like he had been running, but he couldn’t have been running all that time. Of course, at this point I just think that’s strange and don’t come to my “Sam is a dog” conclusion until after watching the second episode…

In the second episode, right in the beginning, when the Rattrays are kicking the crap out of Sookie just feet from Sam’s trailer, I kept wondering why Sam never came to her rescue. Of course, he hadn’t fallen asleep that quickly and his trailer was right there so he should have heard the commotion going on feet from his front door. Sam never showed, but the dog comes to her aid. It’s clear Sam was awake in his house the entire time that night, because before Sookie leaves in her car she says to her self, “Sams lights are still on”…

Now I am almost certain that Sam is the dog that keeps coming to Sookie’s aid.

Am I the only one who is thinking this could be a possibility? I can’t wait to see episode 3 hopefully some light will be shed on my suspicions that Sam is really the dog!!!

Episode 102: First Taste

There are several things that I want to bring up about episode 2. The first thing is that I thought Bill would have shown up sooner to save Sookie. He was almost too late. I did really like the interaction between them while he was healing her though.

I also love Bill coming over to see Sookie. His interaction with her Gran was great and he definitely cleans up nice. Jason and Tara acted about as I expected. I would have been surprised if they were friendly.

Okay, we finally come to it….Bill and Sookie’s walk. So it seems there is more to Sookie than her ability to read minds. She can’t be “glamoured” by vampires. I’m sure that will come in handy and I hope we eventually find out why. Their first kiss was not a let down either and it apparently did the trick for Bill since his fangs involuntarily came out (if you know what I mean).

How about the ending? Gah! Cliffhangers kill me! It definitely surprised me that those vampires were in Bill’s house. Although, we do know very little about Bill’s past. Makes me wonder what we’ll find out about him in future episodes.

The last thing I want to bring up is, did you see the painting in Sam’s office? It’s a painting of a dog sitting beside a little girl. The dog looks a LOT like the dog that’s looking out for Sookie. Hmm….

Episode 101: Strange Love

In episode 1 we are introduced to the characters of Bon Temps, LA for the first time. For me, it took a little while to get a beat on Tara. At first I found Tara to be hostile, but by the end of the show I found her to be quite funny and I was looking forward to hearing what she had to say.

Almost immediately, my heart went out to Sam as that nice guy who is heartbreakingly in love with Sookie, but does not have a chance. Especially, once our resident Vampire walks into the picture.

It did not take long to discover that Jason is a slut of epic proportions, which already got him into trouble by the end of the episode. The question is; will he learn his lesson?

When we are first introduced to Sookie Stackhouse, you can tell that she is burdened by her ability to read minds and it is not surprising that she is instantly attracted to the one person whose thoughts are a mystery, Bill Compton who, of course, is a vampire.

As vampires go, Bill Compton, is dark and brooding and realizes rather quickly that Sookie is different from other humans. I believe that this is what attracts him to her.

At the end of the episode it is clear that Sookie is smitten, but I was still not quite sure what to make of Bill. What I did walk away with, however, was that feeling of a very intense relationship building between these two characters, which very quickly put Sookie’s life in danger. I’m sure that it will not be the last time.

On a side note, there seems to be something mysterious about the dog.

Please let me know your impressions of the characters.
