In celebration of Gay Pride Day and the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, True Blood opened up with what may have been it's best sex scene yet. I mean, that was pretty hot. Too bad Jason woke up when the really good stuff was starting. In church.
As much as I adore Ryan Kwanten, am I the only one who feels that Jason Stackhouse has become a bad, offensive interpretation of Jason Stackhouse? He is even more bumbling and immaturely aggressive than ever. And between the southern accent coming out of both Jason and Bill, everything about True Blood is feeling, well, tired.
"We share or we starve", proclaims one of the Hep-V vampires. It was interesting to see into the Hep-V vampire community; this is a group of people who are entirely unhappy about their present situation. They seem, mostly, upset about their new need to kill and feed and they also know that death is imminent. So, this begs the question, why do they insist on feeding? Also, what is in Arlene's blood that turned the school teacher into vampire soup?
I would like to know why Tara's mom is still alive. Seriously, how on earth has this woman survived for so long? She probably killed Tara just to get some of that tasty vampire blood that she's clearly addicted to. And this is the best we have to do with Lafayette? Keep him in his super fab, ghetto je ne sais quoi house and spew sassy one liners to people? Just like Jesse Pinkman, Lafayette is one of those television characters who was never intended to see the end of season one, but because he is so awesome, he is still alive. So, hopefully, he will begin to be better utilized as the series comes to a close.
Oy vey... a group of southern rednecks, guided by fear and paranoia, overtaking the police station and utilizing their second amendment rights? Never seen this storyline before and I have no doubt that it will end well.
While we're on the topic of completely surprising story lines, good thing Sookie read that gal's diary so she could be reminded that Bill is her true love. Otherwise, she would have made the foolish decision to stay with that Alcide character. Hey Alcide, I can take care of that broken heart for you.....
So, while I enjoyed Jason's pizza forensics and Tara's homage to Britney Spears, watching this last season of True Blood is starting to feel a lot like watching that last season of Lost; punishment.
Wait, wait! Did they not kill off Eric last season just so they could give him Hep-V? Oy vey, indeed.
