“Burning Down the .. *yawn.*

August 26, 2011 in 4.10 Burning Down the House, Promo Video, True Blood

For this week’s episode sneak peaks Tara’s got some rage, Andy’s got some V, and Jason’s got some guilt.

As if we didn’t know.

First I must admit my pleasant surprise at the continuity this time around, Tara’s hand is still burnt and now bandaged. I hope it hurts like hell, maybe if we’re lucky it will get infected. Holly has a plan though, so it looks like they both might live yet. Damn.

Next we have the drama-rama at the Bellefleur Manse with Arlene and Terry confronting the Sheriff of Bon Temps for his illicit drug use. Oh rich people problems! Sigh. Andy, Andy, Andy. This shit is painful. Please get help. It gets better.

Finally, Jess tries to tell Jason she’s a free woman and Jason tells Jess Hoyt walked with a cane when he hit puberty. There’s a third leg joke in there somewhere but more to the point, SO YOU CHEATED ON HIM, JASON? Oh lawdy, lawd, yous in trouble. One does not betray the friendship of the gangly and uncoordinated.

Now please excuse me, I have some grass I need to watch grow.

      Naah, my expectations aren’t that high. :lol:

      These clips just seem especially boring, predictable, and not very informative either. I best quit talking about them now, they’ve already consumed far too much of life as it is. LOL.

      It would probably be better if they didn’t give us any clips at all between episodes. The last person I want to see is Tara. Blech.

      Is it just me or is Arlene more likable this season? I mean it was hard to tell in the first two episodes or so when she was freaking out about Mikey being evil but she doesn’t seem quite as narrow-minded or something? I can’t put my finger on it. It’s probably the up-and-down writing.

      I actually think Jason is now my favourite character on True Blood. He’s probably the only character that has remained likable all season.

      I’m hoping Tara and Holly get to show off some badassery and do some powerful magic without being mediums. I don’t really care for the whole possession angle they’ve gone with for witchcraft so far in the show.

      Nope it’s not just you Sean, I really like Arlene this season too(aside from the Mikey is evil stuff). I think it’s because she is with Terry and he is really good for her.

      I think you’re right. I get to see how she loves her kids, and Terry. She’s actually the “stable one” this season. I like Jason…and Jessica. The clip with Holly and Tara was my favorite.

      I feel the same about Arlene. Terry is obviously having a good influence on her. She used to be more liberal, sweeter and nicer before the Rene thing happened, so maybe it’s just that after a year in a happy, great relationship she’s recovered from the postraumatic stress of being with a secretive serial killer who subjects your kids to porn and kills (or tries to kill) your friends?

      Something clicked in me the moment Eric launched himself at the silver tray carrying witch and it’s been going to hell in a handbasket ever since.

      On reflection, I think for me the descent really started with, “Why is there a bed?” “Can we make love in it?” “Like, maybe never stop,” “Why would we ever want to?” *eyeroll*

      Amen to that SVB! Although, to be fair, I never watch sneak peeks unless they have Eric in them. I’m never chomping at the bit so much to see what the other residents of Bon Temps/Shreveport are up to that I can’t wait until Sunday to find out.

      That said, this last episode really did a number on my overall enthusiasm for the rest of the season.

      Which is good, actually. If he was just doing things for the shippers, this show would be so dull. Sure, it’s good to listen to the fans every now and then, but if he’d do that, he’d have to listen to ALL the fans, not just the Eric-worshippers. So… you might not really like the show after that.

      Actually, I don’t like the show. And not because the bitch doesn’t listen to the fans, but because he changed the story. He changes the core of the main characters and made from Eric a secondary character. Not only so, he also chose all secondary characters from the story in order to figure them as leads in the show, so that’s why we are watching all these shitty and boring plot devices. There is no time for deepness, nor drama. Only for shock value, twisted sex and rape. And rape is getting so constant that even viewers are getting used to it.

      And for those who think that staying true to an original story could be boring, they need to see “Game of Thrones”. This is the best example of how to make an oustanding HBO series while keeping faithful to the original story and be successful. Oh, and is also a great example on how to win Awards, because Awards are very VERY important for HBO Network, and TB is failing BIG TIME in that area for at least the last 3 seasons.

      Also, I’m utterly convinced that I’m not the only one who doesn’t like in what TB has become. After all I’ve been watching this season, now I understand better than ever why HBO was reluctant to negotiate a new season with AB.

      And BTW, wouldn’t be great if instead of the shitty plot of ANTONIA GAVILAN DE LOGROÑO!! (Marnie) and the BRRRUJO, they would have given us the original Witch War with Pam as the leader? But no, instead we have a sacrificed and cool KING and another FOTs (yeah, because if anyone didn’t notice The Festival of Tolerance has almost the same acronym of the Fellowship of the Sun. Very original new story… *rolleyes*.

      I really do wonder what CH thinks when she watches some of the stuff that goes on in this show? CH is a rape vicitm to and there is so much rape on this show. I didn’t really mind when Sookie called Eric a “fang rapist” but if anyone really “fang raped” Sookie it was Bill. Also, Bill raped Lorena so he shouldn’t even be a viable suitor for Sookie(I know Sookie doesn’t know it was rape). Sookie was molested when she was younger yet they show Bill raping Lorena and it’s nothing. I know in Lorena’s warpped version of love she enjoyed it because she was so desperate to be loved but Bill’s intent was rape.

      Actually Lorena wanted to have sex with Bill and seemed to enjoy that freak show. That being said, it seemed to me that Sookie saw both Bill and Eric’s treatment of her as “fangrape” – which it sort of is, survival-vise it could be even worse than sexual rape for some victims, because of the immense pain and possible blood loss. She probably saw it as less worse from Bill, because he was dying, while Eric wasn’t. And at this point she thought Bill had treated her and her loved ones with more decency than he actually had, so she didn’t want to give up on the relationship.
      To me it’s strange that she would consider a relationship with either of them, after the Laffayette thing, the almost-draining in the van and all the other horror that went down. She’s strangely forgiving, not just about what people do to her, but also about what they do to her friends and family, which is very strange to me.

      Sookie just needs to be single for a while because she has alot of emotional and psychological trauma. To bad Bill lives right across the cemetary so she can’t get to much space from him. Eric might start avoiding her so she might get a break from him. I hope Sookie doesn’t choose to be under anyones protection at the end of the season. She has her fae powers so she can do a decent job of taking care of herself.

      Jessica is no longer in love with Hoyt and she move on. Jessica did nothing wrong with sleeping with Jason. Jason of course feels guilty for sleeping with Hoyts’ ex-girlfriend. The only thing Jessica should feel guilty is glamouring Hoyt.

      Jessica and Hoyt are both responsible for the breakup and now Hoyt can go back to his mother and still her she was right about being involved with vampires.

      Hoyt will be the next to join Steve Newlin group of hater for the vampires.

      Jessica/Jason are both wrong in this IMO. True Jessica/Hoyt are officially over now so she’s free to move on just as Hoyt is free to move on. However moving on with Hoyt’s best Friend knowing they grew up together especially is wrong. Jason is just as wrong if not more cuz its his best Friend he’s doing this to. These two both know Hoyt is still in Love with Jessica. I dont like the things Hoyt said to Jessica when they split, an think he is acting childish, but do I think he deserves this from Jason? no. However I agree with Jessica in that she doesn’t have a Human Heart anymore so she no longer sees the World with Human Eyes. We also have to remember Jessica is what 18 now? an was sheltered her whole life then becomes a Vamp, an ends up in a serious Relationship pretty much right away. So her behavior isn’t really that surprising to me. The fact is Hoyt wanted to live a Human lifestyle, an Jessica isn’t Human anymore. This is why their Relationship failed IMO. If Jessica had been Human it may have worked out cuz she would want similar things as Hoyt. I do think Hoyt wants a Woman like his Mom in a way to who will have his Food on the Table when he’s Home from work, an basically be catered to. Summer just might have been perfect for him really.

      I agree. First of all, sleeping with your bff’s ex is LOW. One day after they broke up, when he just helped saving your life and is clearly still concerned about you – even lower! And Jessica should be free to have rebound sex, sure, but having it with your ex’s bff the night after the break up is really, really cruel and selfish. No matter what happened. That’s one step away from ending things by banging his brother.
      I also don’t think Hoyt will turn into a bigot. It was a horribly fight, Jessica said the worst thing possible (“You’re just not (good) enough for me”) after a year of living in his house, drinking his blood and so on. Then Hoyt freaked out, said the worst things he could and acted like a jerk – because he’s hurt. They’re both hurt and immature and (at this point) horrible for each other. And that Hoyt would still be an infantile jerk the day after and write “monster box” like a teenage boy, also still normal. You don’t get over a relationship in a night.
      What crossed the line for me was that Jess and Jason just had sex a few hours after this one-year relationship ended. Blood is a factor, but it’s not an excuse. Both Jessica and Hoyt don’t deserve each other anymore (I’m not even gonna get into maybe-cheating and glamouring territory), but Hoyt certainly deserves a friend who is more concerned about him and less about his own libido.

      If spending a year with a beautiful person you love Is a waste thaen Hoyt does not deserve her. It was a year with a gorgeous VAMP.. anyone would love that. NO regrets. Enjoy what you had.. It’s gone.. Move on. Hoyt is just not mature enough. Jessica is a very young woman & vamp. Hoyt was lucky he had that year. She did not mean him harm. It’s over because it’s over.

      I think Jessica could indeed be more callous. :) The only thing she should be sorry for imo is glamouring Hoyt. But she can’t spend the next few decades with a man she no longer desires just to keep him happy. He needs to suck it up and just accept the fact that she’s just not that into him.

      What is Danny Zuko complaining about? He always wanted to sleep with Sandy (Jessica) anyways. These sneak peaks are so Lame. Tara should shut the hell up since this was mostly her own fault. Every time she becomes angry or depressed she winds up making Shitty decisions. Nothing in these episodes surprises me.

      The theory of Pam becoming Tara’s maker has me worried. I hope it doesn’t happen. If Pam wants to turn someone turn Lala(by his choice). She might make Eric and Pam miserable if she is turned. I don’t know that they can ever fully trust her. Eric and Pam can’t stand self-loathing. Please don’t make Pam her maker and it would be a buzz kill to Eric/Pam. It would be pure gold if they made Lala though. Plus, Pam/Eric are the one functional relationship on the show add Tara to the mix and who knows.

      Oh, don’t even dare have those thoughts of Pam becoming Tara’s maker, it will be a major catastrophe. Pam has a lot of rage towards tara, she wanted to kill her, twice this season. So the possibility of tara becoming Pam’s vamp is a little slim. It would definitely ruin the Pam/Eric relationship and I would hate to see that happen. Lala is a better substitution though.

      I’d like for Lala to be turned by Eric. Actually maybe it wouldn’t be such a good thing if Pam was Lala’s maker either because she wanted to keep him as a pet. She kind of terrozies him too like when they were in the freezer last season. Lala seems more scared of Pam than Eric LOL. After this season and what they have done with Pam’s character I don’t think she is quite ready to be a maker. She has some growing up to do. Plus, I’d rather see Eric as Lala’s maker (like I said before it’s probably to good to be true). There aren’t many humans on the show so I wouldn’t mind Lala staying alive either so we can see him during the day and drinking his booze.

      I think Lala getting turned could be a catalyst for Tara to change her views regarding vampires. He will still be her cousin.

      To bad it most likely won’t happen because he already his his whole medium/witch storyline. Plus, it would be way to awesome to see Lala as a vampire so they can’t have that. Even though it makes sense for him to become a vampire(since the writers brought it up in season two and Eric said he’d think about it) and is a storyline I think alot of people would like/maybe even love.

      That’s because on TB Tara is made the eternal victim. Three seasons of Alan Ball making her the victim and unable to control her own actions. Then they give her some control over her actions and she makes some stupid decisions (like only the women on TB can) so she goes to play victim again. (It’s everyone else’s fault! I didn’t do anything! I’m just protecting myself! I didn’t instigate anything!)

      I’m so sick of them making Tara the eternal victim. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if Pam turned Tara and gave her a choice. Pam and Eric are awesome and a stable couple. Tara has been looking for stability her entire life but no they’d probably make her the victim yet again next season. Rutina is such a good actress to bring back some of season one Tara with some growth. I really don’t want Pam to turn Tara though so I hope that doesn’t come to fruition.

      These days they would be a good match but we would have to suffer through it. I’d rather see Pam bond more with Jessica than turn Tara. Pam/Jess scenes are always good together and Pam could be a good mentor. She has already helped her out some. Deborah Ann Woll called her “Aunty Pam”. She can be Pam’s shopping buddy.

      Ginger screams – drink! (oops – you said screaming already)
      Tara’s lip quivers – drink!
      Lafayette calls someone a hookah – drink!
      Bill escapes from silver (again) – drink!
      Dead character reappears – drink!
      Sookie zaps someone with her jazz hands – drink!
      Real Eric changes into a black wifebeater, jeans and leather jacket, slicks his hair back and kicks some ass…….what were we talking about again?

      :D I think there should be separate screaming categories:

      Ginger screams
      and
      Sookie screams.
      They are both distinctive yet ear piercing and deserve separate recognition.

      I’d also add:
      Andy groans & fidgets
      Bill does his clown face

      The reason for the rape is so Jason will move on from Hotshot and so he can get over Crystal and move to Jessica. The rape was just plot that was not going anywhere at all. The writers probably don’t remember it anymore.

      It seems like they forgot. But they#re stupid that way – who would get raped and then have sex soon afterwards and really enjoy it? So far, Tara (with Sam) and Jason (with Jess). In reality, that’s just not a thing.

      The only explanation I can think of is that he’s throwing himself into sex and yet another instant relationship (this time with Jess) in order not to think about it. But yeah, other than Hoyt occasionally mentioning it, it seems to have been dropped. I’m sure the sole purpose of that painful storyline was to have Jason knock at least one of them up, probably Crystal.

      Yes, sex is Jason’s form of escape or not dealing/dealing with his issues. He can avoid or try to avoid thinking. I think Ryan mentioned that in an interview at some point. After Gran’s died they showed him sleeping with this that blonde woman he met at Merlottes and he was crying.

      Yeah WTF is with that? He’s pack raped and tied to a bed for three fucking episodes, he finally escapes…and he’s having porntastic sex with a vampire in the back of a truck. And his ONLY problem with this is the impact on his friend. Valid concern – but wouldn’t you think he’d be having a problem getting the damn thing up right now?

      Considering he had a severe case of hard on FAIL in season 3 with his college pick ups after killing Eggs?

      Are we saying that when rape happens to a man – a man who has a stud-ly rep with the laydees – it’s not REALLY rape? Because he loves sex IT’S NOT REALLY RAPE? Because he loves sex, he FUCKING ASKED FOR IT? It doesn’t MATTER what happened to him in that nasty shed??

      FUCK FUCK FUCK.

      Honestly, I think it is 100% to do with the blood. They keep trying to drive that point home. The blood is the only explanation for what is going on with Jason. I think they had Jessica on top, in the dream and in reality, for that very reason. Again just to force the blood point even further.

      Seriously, was Jess even a blip on Jason’s radar before the blood? Nope. Didn’t give a flying poop about her.

      From your lips to AB’s ears legalease. We better get a damn good Pam/Eric reunion and not some half a** thing that ticks msot of us off. After the debauchery that was Pam’s almost non existant storyline this season it is the least that they can do (maybe I am asking for to much). Hopefully since Nancy wrote this episode their reunion will be done justice (at this point I don’t even know). I want to see emotion from Pam and Eric saying something lovely in Swedish to her and maybe a kiss on the forehead. However, if the reunion is front of everyone it probably won’t happen. I’d like it to be a private moment. In the words of Nan “They better not F this up.” This is what I have been wanting to see the entire season. They better not have Eric be an a-hole to Pammy. Pam needs some serious love from her maker after what she went through and her best friend in the whole wide world telling her that he doesn’t ever want to remember. I wouldn’t be surprised if they f’s this up at this point. They will probably find a way to add Bill in and interrupt any heartfelt reunion.

      Legalease you mentioned this in the forum and I agree:(your statement about Pam/Lala sounds so true)

      “I think Jesus is gone, one way or another, and Hoyt and Laffy are also options for turning but AB knows we’d love Pam as Laffy’s maker too much so he won’t give it to us” (Legalease).

      Pam or Eric turning Lala would be awesome and a lot of us might be over the moon so maybe they will actually have Pam turn Tara and make alot of people unhappy.

      Normally I’d say it was a given that we would get a wonderful scene between them post amnesia. If the reunion takes place in public (like the tolerance rally) then I’d be happy with a scene between them later at Fangtasia. Pam could hide her relief by snarking on his clothes. I really want Eric to wonder at what the hell happened and who the hell dressed him that way, lol!

      legalease, maybe Pam will even be hesitant to approach normal Eric after the things AE said to her. Normal Eric will have to reasure her that he doesn’t regret making her for a second (like in DR he said he made a good choice). Even if we do get a scene it will probably be really short because Pam/Eric seem to get the short scenes(can’t give us to much of a good thing). Even most of AE/Sookie’s scenes were to short yet Bill can give long speechs to Sookie that seem to go on and on.

This was to be, not only the Eric’s season, but Pam too! that She should to lead the War Witch! she should be looking for her Maker, and not be diminished and humiliated with a horrible subplot, in which AB has used to criticize women who use Botox, only concerned with vanity about to betray your maker, and the remaining time to be worried to kill a character that nobody likes for move the plot.

      So, it’s only Arlene and Terry confronting Andy about his V-addiction. What the hell happened to Portia and Caroline? Is Portia been committed to the local asylum because the townfolk thought she’d lost the plot since she ran screaming each time she saw Queen Bill? Is Caroline hiding somewhere working on her Bellfleur family albums? I guess they were only important for Bill propping and now that he’s back in Sookie’s good graces they are no longer needed. Never mind that they are Andy’s family.

Unless Hadley died or something while Eric had amnesia. Honestly, who knows with this show? Sometimes stuff seems like it’s going somewhere and then doesn’t.

      Yes Northwoman, I would love to see Eric interact with Hunter. I absolutely love the scene with Eric and Arlene’s children. Actually, wish they would do another scene with Eric and Arlene’s kids like maybe at Merlottes. I wish Eric had more interaction with Hunter in the books (the scene where Hunter talks about Eric smiling at him was cute). I don’t think Eric minds kids that much either. He thought Arlene’s were cute.

      Maybe they will delve into it in season 5 and Lala can do an Ectoplasmic Reconstruction (that is neat to neat to pass up). I just have no idea how they will do Hadley’s story. I’d like to see her and Sookie interact once more before she dies (if she dies/gets murdered)

      My interest in TB has waned dramatically over the last 3 weekends. Many of my friends that I made over on the Eric thread of the TB Wiki back in ’08 stopped watching after Season 2. A handful started to watch Season 4 but they have now given up again. Why do we keep putting ourselves through this? Supposedly, the ratings of the latest epi were the highest ever. What is it that we’re missing? I really am beyond disappointed with the Eric/Sookie arc this season, and I truly had high hopes for it.

      Andy. That storyline needs to wrap itself up. He’s been a one-note this entire season. We get it! He’s addicted to ‘V’! Now can someone clue us in as to the point? The only thing I’m seeing right now is that the writers are trying to remind us of the addictive qualities of vampire blood and paralleling Debbie falling off the wagon. Just waiting for it all to coalesce. Arlene and Terry are great, though.

      I agree to and it makes me so upset with what they have done to Pam’s character this season. I still love Pam but they put her on screen with her one liners and she is more than just funny one liners. I do think the Ginger/Pam stuff was funny. However, they could have done so much more with Pam and Kristin is such a wonderful actress. There is supposed to be a flashback next season and I don’t know if I should even be hopeful about that (or they will find a way to F that up). Book four was just as much Pam’s book as Eric’s. It was really her chance to shine but no can’t have that on TB.

      I seriously wonder what CH thinks about Pam’s story this season?

      My biggest disappointment with her, however, is that I always thought of her as very independent. Now, without a maker, Jessica seems more able to look out for herself.

Also, how on earth would this affect Pam, unless he’d cut Eric out in favout of Beel and Pam couldn’t be around without Eric?
      Is this because AB is gay? Because it’s starting to sound that way and it’s really getting weird, the way people talk about him.

      In book 4, Bill is mostly absent and PAM takes charge of the witch problem and she’s all around awesome.
      In the show, Bill gets rid of Sophie Anne (another female character that’s pretty awesome in the books but got ruined and then killed before its time in the show for no other reason than to prop Bill up) and conveniently becomes king, basic logic and plot consistency be damned…
      while Pam is stuck with a stupid curse, acts like an idiot and is basically reduced to an irrational shallow female… I sense a pattern here.

      Many characters, including Sookie, have been sacrificed in order to keep Bill relevant. It’s pretty undeniable at this point but I’m willing to hear valid arguments for the contrary…

      Sorry to say trixie but I totally agree with you there :(
      Eric and Pam have been strategically torn down this season to prop up Bill and Bill/Jess relationship.
      To think that Pam the independent, strong, straight thinking, rational woman in the books who lead vampires, weres and wiccans to war is now a total mess of a character this season with occasional one liners and Bill has been given her role. This is the woman who was tortured last season by the magister, and still stood her ground. She was very loyal to her maker, now she’s only concerned in her looks and she even foolishly betrayed her maker to Bill. That would never happen to Book Pam nor season 3 Pam. It seems to variate between seasons to serve the plot.
      Sookie, Pam and amnesia Eric have all been proping up Bill this season. Sookie has been Bill’s plot device since season 1 actually.

      Eric conveniently forgets that he has a child and Pam hasn’t been seen in Sookie’s house since day one! She didn’t even call when the vamps were to be chained down, did Pam really trust Bill to send chains to Sookie?

      I am this close to never lay eyes on this show ever again. I have mostly lost interest.

Still, he had to drink blood from a snifter while his “miracle” screwed his nemesis in the woods by his house. So I still have hope for this show.

Sookie still wants to believe he’s good leader. Nan mocks Bill and makes him feel like he two feet tall. Most of the characters don’t care for Bill at all and mock him. Bill as the King is a big joke.

      The lead characters are Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam, Jason, and Tara. Of course Bill is going to get airtime because he important character on the show.

      Eric has amnesia of course doing it out of respect but when he gets his memory back he wont be doing it. Bill in charged of the battle of the witches is one big joke and he doing bad job on it.

      Bill is King because of his spying on his Queen and betraying her. Nan made him King because she wants a puppet.

      Bill is not hero but a jackass and that what the actor is playing him as.

      CH has really has not done much for the character of Bill and AB decided to make Bill king is to make Eric miserable and Eric has to take orders from Bill. Bill is behaving like Victor.

      I also guess that Bill will be like Victor. Alan Ball feels obvious sympathy towards Bill. Bill will be an AssHat, and given all the good “savior” stuff at the same time. Bill is as complicated as any other character on the show. Alan Ball took the show in a less predictable direction, and I like it, but I still very much prefer Eric, and definitely want WAY MORE ERIC TIME, especially Eric with Sookie problems and adventures.

      I also thought that Ball probably wants Bill to become Victor from the books, so once again Ball gives stuff from other characters to Bill; So Ball just wants to build up the rivalry between eric and Bill…I rather would have seen the real victor character from the books, but no, ball messed it up once again…

      And that’s exactly the crux of the problem.
      Actually, I’m convinced most of the problems of this show stem either directly or indirectly from this fundamental change of the basic structure of the source material.
      TB is only nominally centered around Sookie, when it’s glaringly obvious with a bit of analysis that it’s actually BUILT AROUND BILL.
      Yeah, there’s still a vague semblance of some major plots from the books, but everything is twisted and “adapted” and often brutally desecrated with no regard for consistency, natural story development and other characters’integrity, all for the sake of keeping Bill relevant.
      I’ve felt from season 3 that the story was being sort of “forced” to go a certain way instead of where it “wanted” to go and this year it’s become perfectly clear. Everything feels sort of “off” to me, there’s so much weirdly OOC behaviour everywhere and the whole love triangle thing makes no freakin sense, it feels so forced and empty and unbelievable at this point, not to mention the increasingly bad bad bad, inconsistent writing… basically my emotional investment in the whole thing is close to zero at this point. I used to get really angry about it, but now I’m beyond that, I just laugh and look at the trainwrek with a sort of mild scientific interest.

      I’m in agreement with all the folks who think Arlene is more likeable this season. I’ve not once thought ” SOMEONE please kill her” this season, perhaps because she loves and did what she could to protect her devil child.

      Terry is still so precious and can’t help but to love Andy’s fucked-up-ness.

      Jess is so mature in some ways yet is still able to make me believe she is still just a seventeen year old trying to adjust. Again, I would hate to see her go.

      Love Ms.super bitch Nan. Why do I think she and Bill were past lovers?

      PLEASE turn Laffy ( Eric) It’s the only thing that can save Tara since she loves her cousin. Once she loves a vampire she’ll give up all the hate. Otherwise, I am seriously sick of her and want her voted off the island with infected fingers permanently.

      I think it will be fun to watch the “did we fuck” tension between Sookie and Eric next season unless they manage to screw that up as well.

      I hope to see at least one more REAL sex scene between Sookie and Eric. The SummersEve tripping on acid “making love” has been fun but I want to see up close intense raw passion between the two of them – same as they showed with Bill and Sook.

      Someone has to die to save the show – maybe Hoyt? If this happens I just think Jason will never emotionally recover. Afterall, he killed Eggs and still hasn’t really gotten over that.

      Eric and Pam own this show. Without the two of them together this year has proven its not worth watching.

      It would be interesting if Laffy was turned, though maybe weird, because it would change too much? But yeah, it would create an interesting dynamic between Pam and Tara, who I both like, but in different ways.

      Looking forward to the Sookie/Eric bickering and awkwardness to begin. The will-they-won’t-they, in a whole new dimension, because sexy things have already happened.

      I disagree with the Hoyt-death consequences though. Jason isn’t deep enough to be caring for a long time, somehow. He got over Nan, Amy, the FotS, Eddie, Crystal and being raped in a shockingly short time. Plus, it doesn’t seem like he cares much about Hoyt, considering last episode. Just enough to feel a little bad about things, but not enough to not do them.

      And finally, I think the topless fangbanger in Nan’s limo was supposed to be a plot device, as in “look, this character is gay”, because we don’t know much about her and this was pretty obvious. Also, every other character on the show who’s into men has at least mentioned interest in Beel or Eric (or had sex with a man, or all of the above), if they ever met them. So, since she hasn’t done that, it seems like a law of the show that she must be gay, even if it’s a weird law.
      Plus, she seems to look down on Beel so much, do you really think she’d let him even touch her?

      I’ve let men touch me who I’ve later looked down on so … just sayin’ (heh). Dunno; just a strange vibe I get from the two of them.

      Jason isn’t deep enough to be caring for a long time.
      I think Jason cares deeply but is without any discernible life/coping skills. He has a bro’s before hoe’s heart and mentality but poor sexual impulse control which will only make his self loathing more pronounced. MHO

      Bill was Nan’s last male lovewr…. WHY SHE WENT TO WOMEN … LMFAO. Well, there it is then. I once told my BFF I would “turn” gay but it wouldn’t matter because a year from now I’d only be ringing her up whining “You’re not going to believe what she did to me” … lol

      Has anyone heard the SM interview where he states that something may happen with the storyline next year that could really piss off alot of fans? Wonder if this is a warning that he and Sookie may patch things up? IF we’re not allowed to speculate about such things here then my apologizes and do ignore the question please.

      Shout out to MA and baby to be. May your child be as snarky brilliant as you are. I dig the hell out of and appreciate all the writers here. Also love this guy over at TV without pity ( a queer writer named Jacob) who described the hook-up between Eric, Sookie and Bill as follows:

      the whole scene is backwards and dumb and barely sketched out at all, and after Sookie has delivered these ridiculous lines in the most wooden, unsexy possible way, they have the most awkward, painful-looking couch make-out of all time. It’s not even a threesome, it’s an… I don’t know what. I didn’t expect to see Bill and Eric doing each other, nothing like that was necessarily on the agenda, but certainly it should be less chaste or skin-crawling than watching a couple of Gomez’s kiss their way up Morticia’s arms, smoochy-smooch-smooch, while Sookie kneels on the couch between them looking like she’s holding in a fart

      BAHHHH. Hope it okay to share this. If not, let me know.

      It seems Season 4 started out so great and with so much promise…Amnesia Eric, witches, Jessica….then, it started to slide. Has it jumped the shark? If so, what did it for you? The non-shower scene? Queen Bill? Vamp Politics? Tara?

      I was really enjoying the season until the non-shower scene. If they had come in from swampsex and then hit the shower for some steamy lovin’ that would have worked for me. If they wanted to do the Sex Narnia, they should have done it after the blood exchange. I could believe that they fell asleep together after removing the silver and talking about Eric regaining his memories and then dreamt the forest scene. But the way they did it was so damn cheesy. I just looked at my screen and thought, “There’s not enough Naked Alex to compensate for this crap.”

      well the episode with the weird shower scene was done by Alan Ball, I wished someone else would have done it, I really think Ball on purposely came up with something like this to piss off the book readers, everyone was anticipating it and then he came on with the Narnia stuff; I think Ball hates the idea of Eric and Sookie, thats why he has done this, he was probably also the first one who came up with the idea of Bill being king to make him look cool, the whole season has been absolutely weird and so many people dislike what they do, some episodes were so badly written, the last one was probably the low point of the season..

      LLE, with all due respect, from what I can tell from the posters and writers at sookieverse, this is a site for people that enjoy thinking. MAS’s recaps/reviews explore below-surface themes and many people who post here tend to expand on that thinking. In my opinion, once you start thinking about and analyzing a show, book, whatever, it is kind of hard to stop – which I think is a good thing. The themes that appear to be occurring in this show happen to be somewhat disturbing to people: casual relationship violence, sexual violence, the disempowerment of women, etc. I for one, am really glad there are viewers out there like the peeps on this site who are thinking while watching.

      This season has had it’s hits (particularly in the beginning), but in these last couple of episodes, it seems to be all misses. Sookie and Jason both started off the season great; they finally seemed to be growing as people… and now they’re right back to where they were in S1. Any character growth that occurred has either been destroyed, or gone to Beehl and his “redemption.” Who the fuck cares about Bill’s redemption when it’s ruining the show?

      I miss the emotion this season. We haven’t seen Sookie rip Bill a new one (or even really deal with the bombs that were dropped last season), we haven’t seen Jason deal with his rape. Where is the emotion of previous seasons? I may make mime jokes about it, but the S/B hospital break-up broke my heart (my non-B/S shipping heart) as I watched it. The bond between Pam and Eric could practically be SEEN when they were saying good-bye. Hell, anyone else remember Sookie’s desolation after Gran’s death in S1? This year, any potential has been sacrificed to move the (way too many) plots forward. AB and crew should cut down on storylines, so that they can ACTUALLY write the ones they do use in a realistic fashion. I can suspend belief for the vampires, weres, fae, telepaths, etc… but when you destroy basic human emotion and motivation for plot? That’s when a show starts to sink, and that’s what TB is doing. Not even Fiona Shaw’s excellent portrayal of Martonia can save what this season is becoming.

      If there were 24 episodes it would be fine to have a lot more storylines but there are only 12. Not everything comes together and not enough time is devoted to storylines. I doubt they will cut back though. Their running out of time too. If they ever do plan to put E/S back togehter there won’t even be a sufficinet about of time to show a relationship. They would have a long way to go with shorts scenes and not that much screen time together.

      Just watched ‘Burning Down the House’ and I was BLOWN AWAY by it. Sorry SVB, I was not bored to tears but cried with the Tommy/Sam scene, thrilled by how AE turning into RE was handled (fantastic piece of film construction) and excited by each story line like I have never been before. I guess I just got into the whole story tonight and just enjoyed it.
      I’d like to also comment on Tara. Yes, yes, I know almost everyone on this site hates her but I can’t think of one other character that would go the distance for Sookie & Jason the way she has. She braved the Were’s & Vamps at Russel’s mansion to free Sookie, she took on the Sheriff & Andy at the Police station to spring Jason , she truly tried to care for her cruel, alcoholic mother even though she could have washed her hands of her long ago. I don’t care for the overall writing of Tara as ‘The Bitch’ but I would be grateful to have a chick like that in my corner. As a human…well, she’s human! A human that had a sh*t start in life but does her best. I’m okay with that.

      I was blown away with the episode to but in the opposite way. I couldn’t even pay attention to the rest of the show I was so upset. However, I did start crying during the Tommy scene because of all the emotion I had over the E/S scene which I felt like they completely trashed that book moment. I’m just beside myself over it.

      I don’t think I would have cried over the Tommy scene if it wasn’t for the E/S scene because the emotions just washed over from that. However, I did feel horrible about Tommy’s death because I did like Tommy. It was so sad and beautiful when Sam said that Tommy was loved. I wanted good things for Tommy even though I knew that probably wouldn’t happen. Poor Sam. Okay maybe I would still would have gotten a little choked up. I’m not usually a big crier either.

      I didn’t expect to get choked up over Godric’s death either which was on a whole other level.

      I did like the scene at the end when the vampires got out of the truck and were walking to the show. Even though I kind of wanted Eric to shoot Bill (I know that’s terrible but I was so po’d). I was at the end of the show so I paid attention.

      You are not alone I wanted Eric to be unaware of all that too, in the books all the confusion was funny,and I think it helped construct the relationship the way it is today. However I think they did it because they know they don’t have 9 seasons to develop all that ( if they are going to develop anything at all, because after last night’s episode I think Sookie will end up with Bill)

      So she loves him for being her protector? He bloody well owes it to her to be her protector, since he stood by and watched and allowed her to be bashed near death when he first met her. Rather than being reason for her to love him, the fact he is now her protector should be no more than reason for her to not hate him.

      Last seasons finale Eric said,” What about you letting two psychos beat her within an inch of her life so you could feed her your blood the night you met? Think she’ll forgive you for that?”

      What the hell were you on Eric there isn’t anything to forgive? The Rattray thing really must have been in our heads IATM.

      You know CH is going to get asked a ton of qusetions about this. She doesn’t even like talking about TB much when she is promoting her Sookie Stackhouse books. I wonder what CH was thinking when she watched this episode? I think she is going to get a firestorm of questions about this even though she isn’t invovled in the show.

      It was like Eric had to try to convince her to want him. That was incedibly difficult for him to admit and it seemed like Sookie acted like it was nothing. Alomst like his love isn’t as good as Bill’s. He was floored (especially at the Rats’ reveal)

      Not only that but it ruined Pam/Eric’s scene for me. Pam wanted to know why Eric didn’t call her right away (it made me sad for Pammy). They didn’t even show Eric and Pam alone together.

      Pam and Sookie will probably never be friends.

      So much for the end of my rant. Sorry.

      Eric’s love isnt as good as Bill’s at this point.. remember Billy said in Sookie’s dream that He “Billy” loves her ( Sookie) 20 times more then Eric’s age..

      So Eric is a homeless child searching for some scrapes of Sookie.. Sookie love is what Eric’s character is lurking for & Sookie is already selfish & consummed with other ideas, but the thought of Eric is secondary to her main ideas.. ( does that make sense)??

      Eric is the 3rd leg in Sookie love.. & if the writer’s add a were animal then he will get dissed simply because there isnt any room .. but it will be placed as the dudes fault because Sookie is Sookie… ( just as Tara is Tara & Jessica is Jessica)..

      It’s even worse that Sookie will either go back to Bill or date some were person next season. I can understand her dating someone else when Eric didn’t have his memories but he laid everything on the line and then some. He poured his heart out to her and she just handed it back to him.

      I didn’t expect E/S to be together at the end of this season and I didn’t even want that right now. I wanted her to be single but I didn’t expect Eric to have all his memories back(I should have though since they change everything else on this show) and telling her that he loves her.

      Eric and Hoyt should talk together. I feel bad for Hoyt/Jess/and Jason. I think it was wrong of Jason ans Jess to do that to Hoyt. I know Hoyt said awful things to Jess out of anger(he just found out she cheated on him) but he doesn’t deserve to have his best friend betray hi with his ex.

      At least Eric was making snide remarks about it though like “Sookie backing the worng horse” etc… Also, Eric knows that Bill lied to the AVL and tried to stake him.

      Sookie is mentally 16 years old in a grown womens body..

      lets back track for a second.. Billy in DUD didnt save her from LS ( Eric did).. but since Billy is the first dude that she gave herself to she cant let go of the past no more then Billy could get over Lorena turning him in the past.. Billy held a grudge for 175 years.. Eric held a grudge for 1,000 years regarding Russell.. Sookie only holds grudges when it deals with Eric..

      with Eric even though she can be mouthy , she likes playing the role of “baby doll” for Billy.. that Southeren Belle shit ( like Scarlett).. so YES, she needs to grow the fuck UP.. look who CH choose to represent Billy as character’s Sam & Quinn.. AB choose Tara/ Debbie/ Jessica/ Amy/ Crystal…

      in DAG, Sookie thought stalker Billy outside of her house when she & Eric were having sex was okay because Sookie said “i know i should be mad, but he is only protecting me”.. & then CH writes Billy saving Sookie from the bad Fae, regardless that Eric sent Billy & Niall to find her silly ass… Sookie had her moment of love for Billy in DAG.. Sookie cant & wont ever leave BT’s because Billy lives next door & Sam & her waitress job.. & it appears from the new short story that Sam is just simply going to make Sookie a business partner instead of paying her the money back.. so CH is creating a out for Sookie’s finacial stability & reason for staying in BT’s.. & it is suppose to appear as “empowerment” for Sookie..

      okay back to TB : Sookie never acknowledges the Rattray beating, because in her mind regardless of Billy flooding her with his blood he killed LS, he ran out in the sun to protect her from Rene’, he went along with Eric’s Ultimate Vampire Dream because Eric is “High Handed” & was in charge, Eric tortured Laffy.. now in this most recent epi Billy wants to take out the witches & talks back to Nan & Sookie is thinking about Tara’s silly ass.. Billy already let Tara get raped by FM & the least he could have done was speak up then in Tara’s behalf.. but that is also forgotton..

      if AB plans to add a were animal lover then he is following the script “nod to the books”.. but Sookie cant be taken seriously because she is too fickle & Billy centric…

      This Will Have Spoilers….
      I kinda dig how Sookie was able to say she wasn’t sure if all the blood Bill (and Eric) gave her was causing her to still hold a love for him. She is aware enough to ask that age old question of what is love? Is it chemical? What is it? Who the hell knows? But she could look into Eric’s eyes and see the man she loved too. Her looking away was her mind doubting and probably dwelling on all that the ‘whole’ Eric is now. Eric was wise to have her look into the window to his soul.
      Sookie has brought a lot to Bill & Eric. To Bill she has renewed his faith in his own humanity. Can he sustain it is the question. Looks doubtful. In Eric she renewed Love. Can he honor this completely? This will be the test.
      I get how book readers would be disappointed in how the memories flooded all back to Eric. I read the books this year. But I have always taken myself away from them to watch the show. I had to so I can enjoy it all. It is like another dimension to me. I really did like how Eric can embrace the whole Sookie love thing now. Wasn’t it in Season 2 ‘Timebomb’ that when Sookie said he loved Godric he said ‘don’t use words I don’t understand’? He seems to have saved his love for Godric (Father/brother/son) and Pam (his child). And now… there is Sookie.

      I get your point GiggirlNY and I am glad someone got enjoyment out of this episode. It’s just frustrating to me.

      ***********SPOILER if you haven’t seen this episode ************

      I don’t think that it is all because of the blood. Jason/Jess had a conversation in this episode about the blood. Jason mentioned that he wouldn’t have slept with her if it wasn’t for her blood. Jess told him tha twas BS because he wanted her regardless of the blood.

      Also, in Sookie dream sequence she told dream Eric “I can’t help it I had his blood.” Well Sookie said the same thing to Bill in the car last season about Eric. “Not feelings, feelings. I had his blood I can’t help it.” I am not going to sugar coat it and say it is all because of Bill’s blood. I don’t know that it is. I do think the blood has influnece but I can’t use it as an excuse. I’d like Sookie’s feelings to be all about the blood but it might not be all because of the blood. This is just a matte of opinion and the blood issue is confusing on this show.

      Sorry if this upsets people.

      I understand C.K. The blood thing is confusing. I feel that there will never be a clear answer because relationships truly never have a clear answer. Before or after vampires.
      Bill did a lot for Sookie in the beginning if we can get past the initial ‘set-up’. He took out creepy Uncle because he hated this guy who hurt her in her past so deeply. He went out into the SUN after Renee. For goodness sake…he was her FIRST! And really good at it it seems. How many young woman can boast that? A few but not everyone. Why shouldn’t she love him? Who’s perfect?
      I just have the hots for Eric so I love the tension, both sexual & emotional, and the conflict (badass vampire & sunbathing goodgirl) that he & Sookie have together. And I just love the way Alex conveys lust with his eyes! Just sayin’.
      And as for Jason…Jess is correct. But of course, when has Jason NOT lusted after a hottie? The guy is a complete Lothario. LOL!

      I think she needs to grow up. I understand was her first and all and in her own way she believes he loves her. What I cannot understand is her not dealing with it like a strong woman. I want to empathize with her but I can’t. Even when she was with Eric I couldn’t. She still saw him as evil for the most part. I want her owning up her own decisions.

      The thing is that most of of didn’t think/expect Eric and Sookie to be together at the end of this season so this isn’t what it is about. I know she loves Bill but it just seems like she sweeps all his bad deeds under the rug. I get her forgiving Bill for the Rat’s situation but not in a week. How can you forgive a person when she don’t even aknowlledge the event in the first place. It’s like she glosses over all the lies and manipulation. I wanted her to be single at the end of this season. Book Bill’s offences were not as long as show Bill’s. I know Eric and Sookie would be a trainwreck if they got together at that moment and I’m not going to romantize it.

      I just feel that Sookie was cold hearted and insensitive towards Eric. Another thing is that they took this important book moment that was just about Eric and Sookie and made it all about Bill. I don’t like how it went down and at this time. She was like Cathy going about not imagining a world without her Heathcliff (I actually like Whuthering Heights). I don’t expect Sookie to want Bill dead either. She was just going on and on about Bill. It made it seem like she was choosing Bill. Book Sookie still loved Bill but she closed the door on him after all that he did to her (not nearly as much as show Bill). Bill was a terrible boyfriend and they weren’t good togethr. Yes, Sookie love Bill but she fell in love with his “Southern Gentleman” act. She fell in love with an ideal. Again this is my opinion and I don’t expect everyone to agree and that is okay.

      I like your take, C.K.
      This is, as others have mentioned, a strange triangle. I step back and look at the whole TB universe. It is FILLED with beings that are more than mere humans. Sookie is in this category too. Have we met any happy (read- not ending tragically) couples who are in this category? The best the vampires can hope for is a long relationship with their child. Or being creepy and cruel nest mates. What I can’t get is how AB keeps bringing Bill into Sookie’s life as any kind of romantic potential. Let it go already. Nofangs has a great point. Sookie is not a little girl. Bill is not the ‘one’. Why is AB doing this disservice to women by keeping Sookie attached to Bill? Let her acknowledge her ‘First’, there will always be something special in that, and move forward. I’ve always felt that only Lafayette’s character has been allowed to move forward in an emotionally mature way. Arlene got lucky that Terry has pledged an allegiance to her.

      The blood thing is actually more confusing than in the books, for me in the books it was so clear the blood bond and everything,in the show that chemistry she mentioned was really weird.

      Just to check if you drink the blood you “fall in love” is that how it works? ( on the show I mean)

      Who knows how it works. AB is not consistent. The queen is more powerful than Eric. Even Jessica is more powerful than Eric (Silver). Is Lafayette in love with Eric? NO. Is Sam in love with Bill? No. But Sookie being a weak plot device only rationalize that blood does that. She does not own up to her decisions. It is not the blood and she does not love Bill or Eric. She can’t know what love is otherwise she would never ever let the Queen dominate her life like she did.

      I HATED THIS EPISODE. Could not even enjoy the rest of the scenes because of Sookie. In fact, I am pretty done with this show. The last 3 episodes were so bad that I cannot even re-watch it. The problem for me is that Sookie is weak. I know a lot of people can understand her but I can’t. She is still completely crazy. While she got some moments of sanity this season, it did not leave me convinced that I should root for her. C’mon. For that matter I am mad a book Sookie too for her hypocrisy about killing Victor. This supposed ambiguity or “humanity” that she tries to hold on to is just off for me. Make a decision, be strong!
      I am pissed that Eric told her he loved her. WTF? How could they diminish this moment like that? “I still love Bill”my ass. What am I watching? Why do I waste my time? They should have Sookie chose Bill and then I will be done with this crap and only watch Eric’s parts as long as they don’t continue to destroy him by making him pursue the b**ch!
      So she can only love Eric when he is a child but not the whole man? F*** her!
      This sucks!

      This is another problem that Sookie doesn’t seem strong like book Sookie when it comes to Bill. Why even do the Rats reveal in the first place if their just going to act like it’s nothing. Sure she yelled at Bill once this season in episode 6 but it’s not enough. Have some self respect and back bone when it comes to Bill.

      That’s what it drives me nuts! In fact, to me, it is crazy that she loves both Eric and Bill. How can she love Eric? She “hated” him, preferred cancer over him. I know she saw more to him and could love him, but not yet! How can she love Bill? Even if we ignore the Rats reveal (which apparently we have to) there are many reasons for her to not be in love with him. She knows what he did to her and ignores it completely. What she did to Eric is unbelievable – I mean the words she chose. It is very hard to like a show where the main “plot device” is unlikeable. The words were too strong “I cannot imagine a world without him”. This is too much! Grow up- I so miss Book Sookie even though she drove me nuts but at least I could respect her and empathize. This weak plot device we call TB Sookie doesn’t do it for me.

      Another rant: she should know better. She has had a tough life having experienced so much loss and being able to hear people’s nastiest thoughts. I don’t buy the whole first love thing. The Queen broke her heart but 15 minutes later she was happy to see him. This is not normal behavior. Anyway…

      She never really hated him, that was pretty clear. Still, i agree that being so completey in love is not really believable. I can totally buy her having very strong feelings for Eric, but embracing them so fully and being so aware of their extent doesn’t ring true to me. Way too soon.
      Also, I thought it was rushed the way Eric was instantly accepting of his amnesia self and declaring his love. Realistically, he would at least be totally confused for a while.

      But most of all, what truly makes no sense is that after all of this, and having had no time to actually process Bill’s betrayal and her trauma, she’s magically got over so much pain and anger and freely proclaims her love for him. this is just really badly written, lazy, inconsistent and emotionally hollow, all for the sake of forcing a stupid triangle that at this point just shouldn’t exist.

      that is so right, because of the fact that they rushed this whole thing, they even made some sort of blood blond makes me think that the show could really end after season 5, or at least Ball is going to leave the show; If ball leaves I actually would like to see the show continue, because then maybe they would finally stop to focus so much on Bill.
      It would have been better if Eric doesn´t remember this season and Sookie would stay single next season, but if at the end of the season she choses Bill than I am finally done with this sh*t, its absolutely stupid that she can forgive Bill that easily in such a short of time, makes no sense at all, they make Sookie look like a stupid and naive chick…

      trixi, I just feel that they dropped the ball big time on this.AB has a habit of dragging stuff out and then rushing it. Sookie has been gone for a year so I can understand him missing her and I do think he was in love with her before amnesia. However, I didn’t think they would have him embrace it so soon or for them to admit that they loved each other (I didn’t want that to be rushed yet it was). I wanted them to admit thtat later. This important scene was tainted in my view. I don’t even have a desire to re-watch that scene it’s to sad.

      Actually I don’t think after a week or two you can love Eric or any other man for that matter(well maybe Eric hahaha). In the show she was supposed to hate Eric,to see him like pure evil, and after some days with him she loves him?, in the books there was something going on between them before AE happened. But in the show she was rude with Eric more than once, specially when he told her the truth last season. And now she is in love?

      About being in love with Bill well some girls are just plain stupid, so its more believable, but then she says its because of the blood, so what is it sister the blood or pure love?

      I almost cried when Eric said those things,I was truly not expecting them, poor viking vampire he’s now heart broken, he was left behing for a cheater. Eric was very calm I would yelled at Sookie after hearing what she said about loving Bill (I think I actually yelled at her something like What? Are you crazy?)

      I wonder if they are going to show us the Pam and Sookie scene anytime soon when she begs Sookie.

      They only thing I really liked about last night was when Eric said to Bill get your hand off me (or something like that) I was like YES Sheriff is back (hoping he is really back)

      Sookie should go back to Bill they deserve each other.

      WOW, this was the most disappointing episode of ALL. Sookie has just hit a new low by declaring she still LOVES beehl. I wanted to vomit. This shit is getting more ridiculous, now I can’t stand seeing beehl nor sookie. I agree with nofangs, this sookie has no backbone like the one in the book. I couldn’t believe she would use her “light crap” towards eric, without knowing what damage it might do to him, in order to save beehl. Yet she didn’t use it towards beehl/guards when eric was arrested and was going to face the true death. It’s unbelievable. AB should put the words “I love Bill” all over his face.

      I think AB has it right with Sookie loving both Eric and Bill at the same time. Or at least having feelings for them both. Remember she wasn’t really away for a year, though she was, so there isn’t such a long time yet when she broke up with Bill. And when you break up with someone it’s not like you’d instantly lose all feelings for them. And on the other hand she’s had an interest for Eric for a long time, since season 2 and perhaps already season 1. There’s nothing that would happen really abruptly, though situations just changed with Eric having amnesia.

      AB is writing the series more queer than the books and I like it just that way. Certainly a triangle like this is a really classic, age old story convention. But he’s giving it a twist. I just wonder what the season 5 will look like. And I’m very very glad they didn’t make the series some Romantic Teen Vampire Daydream 2 with everlasting love and all.

      I have no problem with AB creating “a” love triangle and as a writer I understand this necessity to keep the story from falling into the “romantic Teenage Vampire” silliness you speak of. The problem I have is ABs decision to continue using BILL as a love object since he committed such a horrific act of violence against Sookie. It is cheap and manipulative and sends a horrible message to and about women i.e a man can beat you within a inch of your life and you can return to him under the guise of needing “love”

      WRONG. It is a disgusting image and message to send and I would be saying the same thing if it had been Eric who had committed such an act. I defended Bill for three years because I believed he had just as much right to love and fight for Sookie’s affection as Eric did but his unforgivable violence against her lost my respect forever.

      For a long time I rolled my eyes when I read over and over how AB “loved” Bill thinking everyone paranoid and ridiculous but into the forth year of this show I have to admit they are probably right. I love AB writing queer ( he is afterall) but he has lost my personal respect do to his inability to separate art from his personal feelings for a character. He continues to sacrifice the integrity of the protagonist(Sookie)who SHOULD never return to Bill under any circumstances for her own mental and spritual development as a strong fully functiong adult. I do not care for the books but it is an insult to CH to turn sookie into such an emotionally weak female, in fact, it is an insult to ALL woman.

      AB’s enmeshment with “Bill” ironically exposes his own hidden dysfunction. IF he is willing to let a man beat a woman nearly to death and then send her back to him to keep a cheap ass love triangle going for ratings then all I can say is he has lost his way as an artist.

      well said!!! AB loves Bill so much… im wondering why, he isnt marrying Stephen:) j.k. newayz, i would understand why he loves him so much, he was so happy and overwhelmed with the fact that his two lead characters went on in real life, it shows he did know who and who cant have the chemistry in his show. And because of this, he is blinded now, and ruining the show, for wanting it to be Anna and Stephen at the end. And i think that is why he is leaving, reasons maybe for the show to get back to its real roots, it is based on the books of CH. it doesnt mean the show would be identical with the books, but if they try to make the show so far different from the books then better yet dont based in a famous novel of our dear CH.

Billy cant beat Russell even with Sookie’s hand glow since on the show it hasent killed anybody yet.. & Sookie’s hand glow didnt kill Russell in s3 when she used it on him.. so Sookie will have to turn to Eric for strengh & power or resource of thoughts even though she shited on him all s4 about his idea of using her as the Ultimate Vampire Dream.. & we all Know Russell wont fall for that trick agian & Billy is only 175 so strengh wise he is no match reasonably for Russell..

      so on lives the fable lie of LOVE & user when it is avaliable & that opens the door for another plot of Eric marrying The Sook ( ATD stuff)…

      so IDK, if the writer’s will do a marriage or not.. i’m simply speculating from the foreshadowing between the 4 seasons.. but i dont want a STALKER Viking in s5 so he might as well pull a stunt that marries him to Sookie so he doesnt look like a Stalker..LOL !! otherwise, he will look creepy stalking Sookie in the future seasons & she declares to be Billy’s agian..

      I don’t think they will have Eric stalk her (at least I hope not). I think it will be the opposite that Eric will avoid/ignore her (but that would be like the books). Eric has a lot of other things to deal with like Russell coming back.

      I felt so bad for Pam when she asked Eric why he didn’t call her sooner. Poor Pam is going to have arough time of it because she is used to being the only woman Eric loves. Pam is his spoiled daughter and I think that she is jealous of Sookie. Pam wants Eric all to herself. Did they even show Pam in the montage because I don’t remember?

      I do agree that the continuation of this so called love triangle will begin to cheapen the integrity of the E/S relationship. After the Rats reveal the relationship should have been over. When the second reveal happened in the books Sookie closed the door on Bill forever. I can maybe understand the procuring because that was apart of his job but letting terroize Sookie was inexcusible. I just want Sookie to acknowledge that and say that she can’t be with a person who let something like that happen to her.

      Well, in comparison to the previous episodes this one falls in line with those I found ‘OK’.

      I’m glad Tommy is dead, but I liked the way it was done, very emotional.

      I would have far more respect for AB if he would just have Sookie say ” Hey, Bill’s a great fuck and I’m not ready to give him up” I do understand that it has been too short of a time for her to completely get over Bill; my problem as stated above is using “love” as the psychological bridge to continue the triangle.

      I certainly don’t see AB as misogynistic, quite the opposite actually as he has given parts to many strong females (and not all of them are young and beautiful) and perhaps this is WHY I feel so disappointed with him as a artist. He should know better and be conscious of the universal message he is sending!

      Also, on second thought, maybe his decision is not based on ratings afterall. I mean, if he just wanted ratings he’d hook up E&S since that is what 75% of the audience wants.

      What I’m concerned about now ( Oh Gawd – how I do go on) is his attempt to deliberately shift the psychodynamic POWER from Eric to Bill. The cheesy way he had Eric confess his love to Sookie(robbing the audience of sexual tension “of did we or did we not have sex” between the two of them next year) leaves me wondering if that is his plan.

      Eric would become more domesticated, nurturing, cautious and “understanding” because of his love for Sookie reducing his BAMF attraction as AB tries to shift these attributes to Bill making him the bad ass strong, decisive, powerful sexy leader of the Vampires.

      I think that’s what he trying to do but it ain’t working because Eric’s leadership qualities ( and Skarsgards portrayal of him) is hard wired indigenous to his nature. Both are innately sexually powerful men who walk and lead with an air of natural authority. This is not the case with Bill (or SM)so no matter what AB tries to do to give Bill more power it is bound to be recognized for what it is …superficial camouflage. One can not cut and paste leaves on to a bush and then try convince everyone it’s a tree. Well, you can but you end up looking like a delusional idiot and destroying the natural beauty of the landscape.

Eric was throwing Billy around like a rag doll & untill Sookie blasted him because she cant envision a world w/out Billy she will have to turn to Eric in s5 & remind him that Billy released him from a True Death in s4.. **GAG**

      Also everyo else on Eric’s sh** list gets their comeuppance except Bill (aside from losing Sookie for a while) who tried to kill Eric 4 or 4 times. Oh and Bill’s just made king and Eric has to follow his orders after Bill tried to kill him so many times. No one else would get away with that. I wish they would have Eric put Bill in his place. I still want Eric to be BAMF. Book Eric is with Sookie yet he is still BAMF just more vulnerable with Sookie. AB is probably happy that many of us are po’d because he knows we would be and probably even doesn’t care. It’s like the E/S relationship is going to be made a joke.

      even though Luke the bomber had silver & other metals straped on his body going into a vampire nest .. so the debris other then silver still hit Eric when he protected Sook from the blast…

      if the writer’s were planning on writing the bullet sucking scene as Billy was right about the silver pushing itself out, then why give him the LS kill in s1?? i mean Book Sookie didnt start loving Eric in DUD simply because he staked LS.. WTF are they doing in the writer’s meetings?? i mean Billy get’s up off the floor in s3 with silver on him & he was tortured for hours & in s4 Jessica a 1 yr. old Vampire breaks loose through her silver restraints..

      & the end of this silly ass epi the writer’s decided to do a vampire A- Team..**sigh**

      I agree. My main concern is NOT that Sookie will end up with Bill (they deserve each other) but that they will destroy our sexy Viking as a character. They have been doing it slowly. I did not like particularly how they handled AE but the worst is that Eric is back and he admits that he loves Sookie in Bill’s house? C’mon! Eric should be feeling strange and confused about what the hell happened. He always cared for Sookie (who knows why – TB Sookie sucks) but to all the sudden feel no confusion and is ready to be with her. In 1000 years he probably have never experienced this and now he is ok with it? If they make Eric a weak Viking that chases after the dumb blond I will be EXTRA pissed. Anyway, he is a Viking Vampire God that bows to no one! I hope AB remembers that… Unfortunately, it is only hope not conviction at this point. This show has been so bad that I only watch for Eric and Pam. If they continue to change the characters- I won’t be able to stomach it.

      Also (just because I cant stop venting): someone mentioned that Sookie is 16 years old in maturity. I agree. She seems to love either a father figure (extra creepy guy because she was molested) or a 16 year old boy like AE. She is no woman and no woman for our Viking!

      Agreed. Bill’s paternalistic treatment of Sookie from the beginning has been screamingly obvious and now that you mention it Eric was pretty much reduced to a non threatening lovey dovey 16 year old.

      It’s odd because as much as I dislike the books (mainly due to CH writing style) the one thing I did get from them was a strong empathic feeling of wanting Sookie to be happy. I walked away with a great respect for her firmly in the Sookie camp. I really don’t give a shit who she ends up with as long as she gets what she wants out of life be it with Eric, Bill, Sam or alone.

      While it may sound like I hate Bill or even SM… I honestly do NOT. I just don’t like the way her character is being grossly manipulated to prop up their “love story”.

      Okay enough! I’m being redundant as hell already

      Same here MoreEric I don’t hate Bill and I was a Bill/Sookie fan back in season one and some of season two. Like you mentioned what makes me dislike the Bill character even more is his how they use Sookie to prop Bill up. It seems like they have her forgiving him for everything and he can do anything and get away with it. Disrepsect authority figures so he just has them killed off. Tries to kill Eric and becomes king. Nan will either be killed or put on trial(probably Eric will have more to do with it) so Bill will get away with that too and probably remain king.

      Sorry I keep going on and on about this I should just stop.

      I’m not sure what to think about the show atm. I have enjoyed parts of this season, and i did enjoy season 1,2 and 3. What annoys me the most though is no one seems to be giving info and prosessing information correctly. We always get little hints, but usually it’s Sookie that seems to be totaly in the dark.
      Bill is still controlling and manipulating Sookie, and i feel that the only way she will be free of him is if Bill dies(the true death) or Sookie does. Bill might act indifferent infront of Sookie, but we have seen that he is always working on getting back in her good graces. He will not let her go. To him she is still his possesion.
      Eric might or might not be aware of Bill’s massive influence over Sookie at this point, but i wish Sookie would break free on her own. Unfortunatly i doubt Bill will let her.
      Sookie needs to go to rehab before she can start a healthy relationship with anyone.

      Watching Sookie beeing addicted to a manipulative abuser for 4 seasons is not very entertaining though, and something needs to be resolved and soon.
      Wish the show had more episodes and time to flesh things out more, but alas..
      I do hope Eric will be ok though regardless.

      i agree that Sookie needs to go to rehab ( she should listen to Amy Winehouse)..

      on another note my biggest concern in s5 is Eric & how the writer’s write his character.. i mean if they plan to hook Sookie sexually back up with Billy i dont want Eric outside of her house ( DAG & that was Billy’s role in DAG).. i dont want to watch a season of stalker Eric.. **roll eye’s**

      i already know the writer’s will most likely have Sookie turn to Eric for something related to Russell & she will throw in his face that Billy saved his life from a True death when he was under amnesia..

      i’m so annoyed with TB & AB’s Shenanigans with Billy having the majority of book Eric stuff..

      Sookie does need to be detoxed of Bill’s blood. Someone mentioned (I can’t sorry I can’t remeber who) that Sookie might still have a lot of Bill’s blood still in her system from before she went to Faery. In Sookie time she was only gone a week so it will take time for some of the blood to clear out of her system. However, I won’t blame it all on the blood but it does have some influence.

      I am holding out with hope that Sookie will figure out what is influencing her: the blood. Jason mentions. To Jessica that he didn’t feel like this until she gave him his blood.Spooks (my spellcheck won’t let me write her name lol) tells Eric she sometimes wonders if it’s you all’s blood. Eric asks her how she could love Bill IMO not questioning how she could love them at the same timebut how could she love him after all he has done to her. If the books on his bedside, along with his his ability to keep a sraight face sand figure things out….he is going to find out that bill gave her blood. Hopefully Eric will still act as the voice of. Truth. He’ll help her figure it out, whever the chips may fall.

      Oh I forgot that Eric wouldn’t know that Bill just gave Sookie blood again because he wasn’t there. I don’t think Sookie mentioned it. Not that I think it is all the blood but it does have some influence. Sookie didn’t start dreaming about Bill again until she had his blood since that is a side effect.

      I didn´t mind it that Sookie said that she still loves Bill, I think its normal that you still have feelings for someone if you have just broken up; my big problem was that she said that she couldn´t live in a world without Bill wtf?? Seriously, I cannot believe with what kind of Balls*t they have once again come along, it sounded like that Bill is her everything and that without him she cannot exist, this whole sentence annoyed me seriously, they turned True blood Sookie into a stupid and naive woman; And looking at the new promo, it looked like that Bill is leading the witch war, its so stupid that this ^175 year old vampire now suddenly has become the boss, what the hell, the only reason they made Bill king is to give him power over eric, but I think its just too stupid that this young vampire can order vampires around that are so much older, at least Sophie Anne on the show was over 400 years old or something like this, so I had no problem wit her; and who wwill defeat Marnie, yes I think it will be saint Bill, the super strong superman vampire who will save everyone (eyeroll); and if they do Rhodes next season and Bill is king that would mean that he would be once again all over the place, its all about Bill Bill Bill, even this season, who should have been more about Eric and Sookie had more Bill then anything, for example the whole Portia thing was so senseless, a nonsense storyline that no one really cares about anymore, but yes he always needs to have at least 12 minutes each episode…

      AB did promise CH that he is keeping to the spirit of the books. Sookie would do anything to keep Eric, Bill, Sam, Jason, and Pam safe. In the books, Sookie stills loves Bill but not in love with Bill.

      In book 4, Sookie was not over Bill and she does get over Bill but it takes time. Sookie not stupid at all.

      The Rattrey beating reminds me of the rape in the book. Sookie was drain and rape and she block it out like it did not happen. Right now, Sookie is doing the same thing like she did in the books.

      The only that Sookie would go over rage if Bill killed Sookie’s grandmother.

      True Blood is a soap opera and there are good thing and bad things.

      Don’t mean to pick on you. Book Sookie actually came to terms with what happened to her by not thinking about it. In one way she understood that Bill was not in control. TB Sookie pretends it never happens. Somewhat different. Also Book Sookie abjured Bill after she learned that he was sent there to find her for the Queen. TB Sookie also forgot this info.

      Excatly, TB Sookie pretends that Billy never drained her in s3, & she selectivly pretends that she never learned about Billy & his mission & she dismisses that Billy tried to kill Eric & Pam because her excuse is that Eric tasted her.. she dismisses the Rattray beating because she cant envision a life without Billy.. Sookie dismisses any wrong doing with Billy & she is now blaming it on the blood to Eric in s4 when he isnt AE.. Sookie resorts to sex with Billy after he drained her because her excuse is that Billy was tortured in s3 & he didnt mean to do it.. Sookie ignores that Billy had a file on her family & she ignores that Billy is the “Mendacious Mr. Compton”.. Sookie is totaly the infacuated tween ..

      after a while Sookie is far more worse on TB then i could have ever imagined because i dont care for her that much in the books.. but at least book Sookie actually finished her relationship with Billy as a no way return once she learned about his mission.. because book Sookie in DAAD was considering hooking back up with Billy anyway.. so if TB does that in s5 i wont be suprised because TB Sookie always resorts back sexual with Billy no matter what he has done..

      @LLE

      We have to agree on disagreeing.

      I have read the books multiple times.. In fact I was a fan of the series before TB existed- so you don’t have to tell me that Book Sookie is not stupid. She is annoying at times but not stupid.

      However, TB Sookie is stupid. And as for AB promising that he would keep the spirit of the books- He has broken this promise many times. His biggest flaw is with Sookie (not Bill). Why should I care now or believe him now? I can only hope.

      Also, I am not saying that she needs to be over Bill but from being over and can’t imagining a world he is not in it – that is a huge huge gap. And to say that to our Viking who remembers everything and confesses his love? It is just crazy but then again she is that stupid.

      Sookie is telling Eric that Bill is still very important to her and Eric knows that he can’t kill Bill because of Sookie.

      Sookie does think the same way about Eric too. Sookie has lost a lot of people that she loves over the years. Sookie’s grandmother was murder and than she found her grandfather and he just die less than week.

      In the books, Sookie broken into Bill’s database and found Judith and let her know that Bill situation.

      AB is keeping the show spirit of the books. AB knows that Sookie loves Bill and Eric and he going that way.

      now, i believe she is the villain in the series,
      it is because of her that Bill had to kill her uncle, its because of her that Bill had to kill Longshadow. because of her that Bill had to make a progeny out from his decision.
      because of her Bill have to kill QSA. because of her Bill have to kill Eric and Pam.

      and because of her, our dear viking is heartbroken…

      come to think of this…
      i really thought she was the victim at first…

      Bill didn’t have to kill Sookie’s uncle he chose to do that. Bill chose to try to kill Eric and Pam to sure he did it out of jealousy

      Sookie was a viticm of Bill. In my opinion Sookie is not a villian. Season one seemed stronger but the longer that she was with Bill the more codependent she became. He completely f-d her up. It’s not Sookie’s fault that Bill let to psycho’s beat her up, he chose to do that all on his own. However, it seems like she just refuses to acknowledge the Rats attack and act like Bill is so great. Bill and Sookie are both terrible for each other. Yes, I agree that Sookie broke Eric’s heart.

      Now, Now stephanie19 ,

      i dont hate Sookie, i simply dislike her.. I hate Billy :-) **wink**

      but really, it wasent Sookie’s fault that Billy killed Uncle B.. Billy is a killer naturally & we the audeince were suppose to be moved by the fact that Billy did a hit on a cripple old man who use to molest Sookie as a child.. Sookie forgave Billy for that because she looked at it as an “act of LOVE” just as Billy telling her in s3 that he will kill everyone who knows who & what she is.. Sookie looks at that as an “act of love & protection” from Billy.. i mean kill the dude who sent you Alcide to find the love of your life simply because he tasted you .. TB Sookie rationalized it as that way & it simply blew my mind.. she comes off as ungreatfull for what Sheriff of area 5 has done for her ..

      but lest we forget how they wrote Eric for the past 4 seasons… in s1 Eric simply asked Sookie to find out who was the theif of Fangtasia & LS tries to kill her & Billy is captian save a “hoe” :-) that is actually a song by E-40..LOL !! Billy has kept his role in Sookie’s eye’s while the Viking tortures Laffy, pays her $10,000 for her trip to Dallas, & sends Alcide to help her find her beloved Billy, & uses her as the Ultimate Vampire Dream because he saved her & her dead beat boyfriend Billy when he killed Talbot in Jackson.. not to mention that Eric bought her house & fixed it up for her in s4.. But she still cant envision a world w/out Billy?? what planet is she on??

      shit IDK, i go on tangets because i’m pissed off at the style of the story & i’m totaly a Viking shipper.. plus i adore Pam :-)

      There’s definitely a difference.
