It’s all under the cut my darlings, for those who don’t want the spoilery bits.
Okay, first of all there was this:
To this I say:
Okay so I didn’t say it as much as that was pretty much me when Sookie let him verbally have it with both barrels. As usual, the mendacious Mr. Compton shows essentially no concern for others. It’s good to know that all of that stuff about seeing Sookie as an abomination wasn’t just him ranting at the end of last season. Any affection he once had for her is clearly gone and I am so fucking thankful that Sookie has finally purged the last bit of her feelings for Bill from her system.
I really wasn’t sure this day was ever going to come, but I guess it had to eventually. That scene with Sookie and Sam at the bar was just painful to watch for so many reasons. First of all, I don’t believe for a single second what Sookie said about her thinking she and Sam could end up together. IMO that was a last ditch effort to find a reason not to agree to be Warlow’s. I don’t think I really need to comment on how crazy it is that after a grand total of what… three or four days together Sam thinks he’s in love with this new girl.
I refuse to learn her name since I’m sure she’ll be dead soon anyway. I’m just going to call her Curly. Seriously… does it even matter? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t generally have anything against Sam but come on now. Just ugh.
We have Sarah losing her damn mind and beating that TruBlood lady to death with a shoe. Right. Like no one is going to come looking for her and figure out that you’ve been corralling vampires and sticking them in a death camp? Barring the VRA having been repealed (and I don’t think it was), I’m pretty sure those are some grave rights violations that Sarah will have to answer for. You know, assuming the prisoners don’t exact a little justice/revenge on their jailer.
You know… like this here…
(A thousand bonus points to anyone who knows what the above picture is referencing!)
Warlow continues to be living in his own little world where the Sookie he’s been imaging for the last 6,000 years still exists. Dude’s got some stones on him to give Sookie an ultimatum like that. I’ll save your friends if you’ll give me the rest of your life. Why yes, fuckface, that does sound like true love and not an unhealthy obsession! Thank you, oh wise one, for showing this mere mortal the light. Or…
But mostly, and I posted about this on tumblr already, but how pissed off do you think Bill is that even with the blood of a vampire god running through him, Eric is still smarter than he is?
I really fail to understand Bill’s bizarre attempts at what I think in his mind pass for diplomacy. I suppose it could have something to do with wanting to smooth things over with the Bellefleurs so that they won’t pursue Jessica for killing Andy’s daughters, but it doesn’t really explain his halfassed attempts at brokering deals with Sookie. It has to chap his ass that even as a supreme being there are either places he can’t go alone, or is too big of a pussy to try and do it himself. He’s had Sookie’s blood and she’s had his. So it stands to reason that if Eric was able to sense the location of that fairy portal, then Bill should have been able to as well.
Clearly he hasn’t lost the ability to track Sookie down, wherever she might be. So Mr. Day Late and a Dollar Short Compton strikes again. There he goes, throwing his weight around only to discover that his posturing has been for nothing since Eric has beaten him to the punch, and potentially saved Sookie at the same time. We know the latter part of that doesn’t sting much since he’s ‘evolved’ from being so in love with her. You know, his miracle.
The kicker is that I doubt Bill’s lame ass plan would have even worked out. The great, master plan was to bring Benlow to Vamp Camp and let all of his vamp friends take a sip? That was the best he could come up with? Seriously. And he’s got the blood of a god running through him. That’s pathetic.
But then again, that’s Bill. Never taking responsibility for his actions and always, from what I can gather, waiting for someone else to solve his problems. He’s the king of finding scapegoats and nothing more.
In other news, because it’s funny… Steve Newlin running the hamster wheel? Huffing and puffing along… that is some of the weakest shit I have ever seen but I couldn’t stop laughing because it’s just so ridiculous. Talk about your failures as a vampire. Clearly the good reverend isn’t cut out for this lifestyle. I still want to know who turned him, dammit! My hope was that it was Russell, because how fitting would that have been, but no. I doubt we’ll ever know but damn, I want to.
I have zero speculations for how this season is going to end because the only thing I have been right about so far is Benlow pulling Sookie out of the pond when her father tried to drown her. Otherwise, I’ve been way off base on things so I would just as soon sit back and enjoy the final two episodes. In either of which Eric better not die or I’m fucking done with this show.
