I still kinda miss Renee...
With that (fake) accent of his I thought he was the sexiest thing on the show...
Ahh well... Hoyt's starting to look better and better...
Vampires have long been used as an outlet for human sexuality in story telling, I don't think it's lazy to immediately jump to that conclusion if the whole series hasn't been dropped in our laps. Alan Ball knows what's coming or where he wants to go, we don't. It is lazy on Alan's part to alienate (<not the word I wanted to use, but it's slipped my mind) some of his fan base with his thoughtless comment considering Vampire history in film, especially in the 80's when "the bite" was correlated with becoming infected [with aids].
"...they're amoral, a lot of them." I think the same can be said about a lot of homosexuals screwing everything in sight and defiling their bodies with drugs. He should have chosen his words more carefully.
Anyway, I love me some True Blood. I actually like it when he says "Sookie" when he's frustrated or trying to explain something to her.
Which is weaselly if you ask me, it's not like we're not paying for it...
As for the series being a metaphor for gay rights... Look, I really don't want to argue about it. Whatever your opinion is is the right opinion for you.
But, we *are* talking about Alan Ball here. Everything he's been involved in from "American Beauty" to "Six Feet Under" has had a strong homosexual undertone running through it.
I doubt much has changed.
I think the episode recap coming up sunday is caused by HBO not wanting to compete with America's attention to the Independence weekend.
And along comes Barry.
The character Barry was cute.
This show is incredible...tonight was GRADE A stuff.
Thank goodness for DVR the sex scene with Mechad Brooks made me bust 4 nuts...i kept rewinding it and playing it in slow motion till i nutted.
I almost nutted when Lafayette was sucking Erics blood that was sexy.
So Mary Ann Is The Monster That Tried To Kill Sookie...
She is also the girl in the painting by the pool last episode.....the girlfriend of the god pan ( animal and party god)
Eric is sexy
Ah crap, they came back this week huh?
Man, so far I've had to watch everything on demand this season. I'm getting really bad at keeping up with shows. I'm so thankful for shows and movies on demand.
Eric is so hot. And so is Jason's bunkmate -- the one that told him that Sarah wanted his "hot beef injection." I hope we see more of him.
Lafayette dancing was probably the funniest/weirdest thing that's happened on the show so far. And I loved when Sookie was checking out the "adult" videos. His First Fang Bang looked gay.
And I'm excited to see Nathan Stark from Eureka in next week's episode!
Whatever happened to that white dog poop from the '70s?
Kenny, What was the comment of Daphne's that your refering to?
Loved it! True Blood is the best fucking show ever.
I'm thinking Maryann wants Tara to be the next Daphne.
I'm really over the Maryanne storyline. We only JUST learned anything at all about her that seems at all relevant to the story and even that was something we pretty much already figured to be the case. I'm ready for it to climax and end.
Obviously the sex scene was hotness
Barry was cute. I love these new characters this season. Apart from Maryanne but technically she was around last season so she doesn't count.
What a fucking awesome show.
so, originally, I thought Marianne was a Succubus, but I have refined my theory...
I know think she's either Circe or a Nymph like Circe
I read your wiki post Elvngaurdian, good call!
Gengar7s I would have to disagree. The town folk of BonTemps are more like the maenad. MaryAnn seems to be using their energies to conduct her rituals.
But whatever, she still throws a mean ass party! I wanna go too.
I just can't shake the thought of what happened to Ro Larin after she joined the Maquis!
Now that we know she tried to kill Soookie, I can't wait for a fight between her and Bill or Eric.
Thanks for the interview Kennylicious.
But in a different direction, How long before Jason and the preacher's wife break her marriage vows. Rev. Nolan is such a pussy.
Danm it to sound like some1 from the show y'all way ahead of little old me. I've only jst watch S1 Ep1! I gotta say its got potential although I found it very hard to believe that the girl murdered was the same age a Sookie!
"Flipping Dykes I though they were a myth like Weapons of Mass Destruction" Grace Adler.
AM I the only one who thinks Revered Nolan wants Jason as much if not more than his wife? I picked up on his attraction to Jason before I picked up on hers.
I've been reading a lot of the conversation on tonights episode here.
Warning though, they bring in stuff from the books. If you don't want to know how things happen in the book, read the forum carefully.
Not quite as action-packed as the last episode, but still very entertaining.
It looks like Bill's maker is now a cast regular. I noticed a new name in the opening credits. That should mix things up a bit. They should just make the actress who plays Daphne a regular too, since she's been in almost every episode this season...unless she dies soon.
I thought Daphne might have been the pig, so I guess that now leaves Eggs and Karl.
And Ed Quinn is looking good!
Whatever happened to that white dog poop from the '70s?
That handjob scene was one of the hottest things i have ever seen on TV. I got 80% erect.
So...That's Godric, huh? Okay, let's see how this plays out. I wonder what the dynamic between him and Eric is going to be. And that was Bill's maker, I thought as much. Good episode, all in all. Favorite line of the night, "Let me reward you, Jason." Fantastic!!!
Don't worry, he's coming back. All tease this episode was, potatoes are fine but I want meat. Thought Godrick was hot, but would have liked it better without the blood. But hey what can you expect. Enough with MaryAnn being the bitch, but we've seen the convex side of her powers. Man have I been in Tara's shoes before, has anybody else had a day at work like that?
OH.MY.GOD. I was wondering who that chick at the end was...that totally was Bill's Maker wasn't it!??! Holy shit...I love this show...hahahahaha
and what's up with Daphne....like ok she's a shape shifter like Sam...but why does she have the claw marks? Did Maryann attack her too? Or what? I'm confused by that part.
And I'm convinced that Daphne and Maryann are in cahoots with each other. I bet Maryann is trying to get back at Sam for whatever he stole from her, and Daphne is the perfect way to do that. Not sure about the claws though...maybe she was attacked like Sookie and brainwashed?
Whatever happened to that white dog poop from the '70s?
When I first heard about Godric I pictured a really old vampire. Even though vamps dont age, elder vampires tend to be in old bodies in media. I think it's cool and different that they made Godric young and hot.
I used to think the rev's wife and jason was kinda hot but now she's just annoying and skanky making all those faces.
Last nights ep was pretty good. Slower than I thought it would be, but it seems to be setting up for something real good.
I am curious what Sookie and Bill are going to be like once they get back to Bon Temps and see Maryann shacking up in her house. I wonder if Bill will figure her out or not.
That tub scene with Jason was so hot. You can tell she feels kind of neglected.
I was surprised how young they made Godric look, but good choice, that guy is hot. Nice getting to see Eric's past a little too. Gives you a little insight into Eric. I hope they keep that up. He is one of the more intriguing characters on the show.
It is going to be interesting to see Lorena back. I wonder how Bill will change now that his maker is back in his life. According to someone on the true blood wiki, in the book Bill and Lorena had a long and intimate relationship, despite her being his maker.
Now I am just wondering what will happen with Jason now. I bet he is going to help her get Godric out and back to safety. He will probably see Godric down there and flash back to Eddie in his basement. Not to mention, he won't want anything to happen to Sookie.
I wonder what Maryann is though. Someone mentioned she could be a maenad. What do you guys think?
^ Post #418 has an interview with the actress claiming Maryann is in fact a Maenad. It seems to be legit to me.
I hope Lorena puts a little space between Sookie and Bill. I'm sorry, I like them individually, but every time they're together it turns into a corny cheesy lovefest scene. They act so perfect and it just seems incredibly corny to me. I want Lorena to stir up some trouble.
I wouldn't be surprised if Daphne was working with Maryann. When she mentioned shapeshifting I immediately thought she was going to be the huge pig but I guess not. I wonder who the pig is. While I'm on the subject, can shapeshifters only transform into one thing or can they teach themself multiple forms?
Oh and I'm so glad we get to see more of Hoyt's character this season. How did I manage to overlook him last season? I mean, I knew who he was but I never really looked at him. I guess Rene distracted me... I kind of miss that psycho.
Something was brought up on the true blood forum.
The theory is that Eric called in Lorena to keep Bill back and let Sookie do her job. Makes sense seeing how Bill is being way over protective and getting in Eric's face a lot.
Good move on Eric's part.
Shape shifters can take on more than one form I believe. But it seems like they like to keep to one shape. I might be wrong though.
Hoyt is one of my fav characters. I love good boys, and he is just so infinitely sweet. I think he might become a vampire before the series ends somewhere down the road. That would be interesting to see. He does seem really interested in vampires as it is.
I like that thing he does with his eye brow, kind of like what the Rock used to do, but not so voluntary.
I DVR this show and generally fast forward through Sookie and Bill's scenes. Especially the sex. It's weird seeing Anna Paquin having sex because, she's a bit older than me, but I grew up with her. But also Sookie and Bill are so boring compared to all the other couples. And his "No Sookie!" crap is getting tired. Sookie is interesting when she's doing things without bill though.
I wonder if Jason and Sookie will cross paths at the fellowship of the sun church. Jason will probably blow her cover and get them both in deep shit. Then again, the preacher's wife might free them since she's so full of lust over Jason.
I wonder if Eric is bi. I would love to see him and Godrick get it on.
I also wonder if Sookie could develop her telepathy into suggestive mind control somehow. That would be cool if she could pseudo-glamour someone.
Hoyt is so adorably cute and his romance with Jessica is even cuter. I hope he stays a cutie pie with Jessica protecting him from other vamps similar to Bill and Sookie's relationship, except all cutsy and lovey dovey
So, I was (and possibly still am) convinced that Bill's Maker is the Queen of Louisianna... it just seemed like something ironic enough to happen
Here's Godric, actor Allan Hyde:
And I am absolutely loving this show!!!
I didn't recognize Bill's maker either until someone mentioned it here. At the end of the episode I was like "Who the hell was that?"
There's still one thing I can't figure out - like others have said, I think Maryann and Daphne are in on some plan to get back at Sam. But, the marks on her back implies Maryann attacked her as well. Hopefully that little old lady doctor who told Eric to "fuck off" was around
But I can't understand why Maryann would attack her, and how she survived...
They really need to cut the cheasy shit wit Bill and Sookie already god damn. We get it He loves her and She loves his vampire cock.
Anyway yup Bill's maker is about to stir shit up and I knew the preacher's wife wanted Jason's dick from the jump but who can blame her.
