Many moons ago when the first casting calls for season 3 began to trickle out, many of us here heaved a collective sigh at the news that Franklin Mott would be cast to terrorise Tara this year. After suffering through a Tara-Maryanne arc that lasted about 8 episodes longer than it should have, the thought of spending back-to-back seasons watching her deal with another supe fucking with her head was more than our fragile little psyches could stand.
I am happy to admit that I WAS WRONG.
(And I’m not one to admit that often you know – just ask my other half).
The wonderful southernsugar found this Franklin fanvid and posted it on the forum. I’ve watched this like 10 times now, and I’m still laughing.
Franklin Mott has been the stand out surprise so far this year. He’s quickly shaping up to be season three’s Godric – just like Godric, he’ll go out in a blaze of glory, there will be universal fan outcry…and we’ll probably be subjected to multiple Tara flashbacks in season 4, as the writers languish in their regret at having once again prematurely ejaculated in the name of shock and awe.
Alas, I’m getting ahead of myself.
Frankie is a HUGE FREAK and we love him. If only for the fact that his mere presence in Tara’s scenes has made her tolerable once more.
