We definitely liked how this episode shaped up and is starting to build into the main story line. There are still a couple of offshoot stories that seem out of place like Arlene and her baby.
What is up with this story line? We really wish they'd get rid of this. It seems like something from a B horror movie.
We were happy to see that Tara went home to see Sookie. It seems that we may have judged her too quickly. She really does seem to be doing better, hopefully, for her sake she'll go back to New Orleans. But I have a feeling she'll get sucked into helping Lafayette.
Poor poor Jason. He has the worst taste in women. Has Crystal completely lost her mind? It seems like V is not so good for her.
What happened to Andy? We started to have a little respect for him at the end of last season and now he seems like a useless junky.
Hmmm....Jessica and Hoyt. Going as badly as expected.
We liked the back story on how Bill became king, but the death of the queen was a bit of a cop out. Really wanted to see a big fight not a political assassination. It was interesting to see Bill's ties with the AVL and how much power they really have within the vampire community. Even though the AVL is clearly a force to be reckoned with and he has had a long association with them, he is still willing to risk his own life to protect Sookie from them. It would be really interesting to find out more about the AVL hierarchy and their long term strategies in handling the anti-vampire movement.
How do you feel about Sam's new love interest? We don't trust her yet, especially now that we know that she's shifted into another human being. Is she going to turn out to be one of the horrible Skinwalkers described in her father's stories? Or is somebody else pulling her strings...using her abilities?
Maybe there's hope for Tommy and Sam after all? I guess we'll find out.
We're a little surprised at how Eric is handling things. He's over 1,000 years old. You'd think he'd be a bit more clever in handling the coven and Sookie. We all know he can be very charming and usually gets what he wants. He seems to be failing on both counts. At least you know where stands. In some respects, he's more trustworthy than Bill. The cubby hole was pretty awesome! Eric offered to protect Sookie from everyone. Little did he know that he'd become the biggest immediate threat with the loss of his memory and discovering just how good she smells.
