True Blood? 8/29

So I'm thinking that Eric's last stunt with the King of Awesome will have something to do with his amnesia/personality switch for season 4.  At least, that's what I'm crossing my fingers about.

And Sookie will find something she hasn't yet learned about Bill and they will be on the outs for next year.

And where the hell have the werewolves been?  Please tell me they make an appearance in the finale in two weeks.

Re: True Blood? 8/29

  • I thought last night's ep was a little slow, I guess they're saving everything for the finale. It doesn't seem like it should be finale time yet!

    I was thinking that too about Eric's amnesia. I'm not really sure wtf his plan was other than making sure Russell was dead. I was happy that Sookie was actually pissed at Bill for once.

    Sam was starting to really annoy me, he is acting like such a jerk. I can't believe Arlene is trying to get rid of her baby too, Terry has been so great about it. Just because it's Rene's kid doesn't mean it's going to be evil. I feel so bad for Terry.

    Crystal is annoying me too, although I don't think I liked her much in the books either. It looks like the raid on Hotshot is going to be a big part of the finale too which may set Jason up for what happens to him in book 4.

    I miss the weres too! Where is Alcide??

  • I so hate that these True Blood threads on here are rife with spoilers from the books.  I don't mind if you talk about them on here, but when you put the date of the show in your post title, I'm expecting that the thread will contain elements of that particular show.

    Maybe I'm the only one that feels this way, but it's something that's been bugging me all season long.

    But talking about the show that aired last night, I'm confused by this season - it really seems all over the map.  Shifters, werewolves, crazy Russell with Talbot in a jar, passing the vampire resolution - I haven't been able to ascertain any real overarching theme.

  • I felt horrible for Tommy last night, you could tell he was freaked out by Sam turning on him like that.

    I wonder what is behind Jesus and what Lafayette saw..the guy in the mask freaked me out a little too. I would have made him leave. 

    I appreciated that Andy just told Tara he was sorry..and how he felt. It sort of seemed like Tara *may* have appreciated that too. 

    Arlene's baby=stage five clinger. I think it is an evil baby--and if it wasn't before, it is now--you can't do magic on babies--have them live and then have them turn out good. NOW she should be scared. 

    Eric=hot. 

    The episode was a little slow...as shown by my somewhat slow post above. 

    Oh..I LOVED that Evetta was a urologist in Ukraine, and she saved  Sookie. Laugh out loud. 

  • It feels as though they have SO MUCH to fit into the finale! I think you ladies might be onto something with Eric's amnesia. Arlene is such a dumbdumb with this abortion thing, but it is completely in her character to be ridiculous like this.

    The 2 things that have bothered me so far this season are:

    1. Calvin Norris. Maybe its just because he has only recently been introduced, but I sure hope Alan Ball doesn't plan on making him a jerk for much longer.

    2. Alcide and Sookie. I would have liked to see more sexual chemistry/struggle with these two; especially when they were in Jackson.

    ETA: And where the hell is Bubba???

  • FOR ANYONE WHO HASN'T READ THE BOOKS...SPOILER ALERT... 

    I felt bad for Tommy, but he seriously needed to be put in his place.

    Really confused by the whole Lafayette/Jesus thing...I wonder where they're going to take that?

    I really like the idea of this thing with Eric and the sun will explain his amnesia - I can't wait for next season - Eric's amnesia!!!  I hope they don't ruin it by keeping Sookie with Bill all next season. 

    Like lots here, I feel like they have a ton to wrap up in the finale.  I do feel like they are cramming a lot of info into one season.  I can't believe we have to wait 2 weeks for the finale!

  • FWIW, I don't think this is the Season 3 Finale coming up. I think it's the half-season finale. I believe there is a whole other second half coming this fall/winter, although I could be wrong.

    Frankly, none of this is making any sense to me right now. Russell just got outside and wasn't burning yet. If he's so powerful, why doesn't he just yank Eric back inside? Why wouldn't Eric have just handcuffed him to the light pole? Why wouldn't Eric just STAKE HIM?! Annoying. Although I did feel for Pam as she watched them. Highlight of the show.

    Tara's character: I think we've thoroughly established her ability to get pissed off, throw a fit, and run out of the house now. Let's see her do it about 10 times. Oh, wait, we have.

    Angry Sam: I'm not a fan. And nobody would keep sitting there in the restaurant while he went off like that.

    Werewolves: Where art thou?

    Lafayette and Jesus: Getting boring again.

    Andy: his transformation as he admitted what happened with Eggs was really great. Although he didn't exactly explain it well.

    Arlene: And this is why we follow the witch's directions for 5 days, not 1.

    But, like I said, I don't think they plan on wrapping anything  up in the season finale. I think it's just a half-season cliffhanger.

  • This was a slow episode.

    I thought Eric should have booked it back into Fangtasia while leaving Russell handcuffed to a pole outside to burn. Not handcuff himself to him so they both can die....stupid

    We all know that Eric stays alive for season 4. It basically revolves around him. Besides I believe the shower scene is a must for next season, am I right ladies?

    Lafayette and Jesus: Boring, although I believe they are heading right into being Warlocks or something so it sets up for next season

    Tara I offically just want to slap. what A whiner. every episode I wish she'd get her backbone back

    Angry Sam needs to chill out. I like seeing he has a tainted past but really...do we have to watch him go coo coo berry over it. I actually felt bad for Tommy when Sam went off on him. " Your like Joe lee only in a Sam suit" best line ever from Tommy. Sam, snap out of it.

    Don't know whats with Arlene. she snagged the good guy finally and wants to focus on an evil baby. Could do without this whole storyline

    Crystal and Jason: why to they need to stop the raid? I expected this storyline to be far better. I hate that they turned the whole town into in-bred meth dealers. They were supposed to be strange but decent people. who actually wanted to bring in new blood to their blood line. not keep it "all in the family"

    Oh, and I agree with whats missing. we need Alcide and some werewolves to make another appearance. Don't you think Debbie would want to make a comeback after Sookie and her brawl had happened. Not just take a beating and mysteriously disappear until next season.

    I hate that they're making us wait 2 weeks for the last episode. It had better be good

    Agreed. I haven't read them yet, but now I know about Eric.

  • Ah, yes, I agree about Crystal and Jason. She wants to get away from them... she wants to go back... wait, now she wants to get away... oh, wait, now they have to go back. Zzzzzz No new relationship focuses so heavily on how to save an entire meth dealing minicity.

    I did, however, get a kick out of her lines about marrying her half-brother and her "double cousin" who doesn't mean any harm. LOL

  • I haven't read the books yet, but I enjoy reading these threads. If it wasn't for the side knowledge from the books that I read here, I would have thrown up my hands a long time ago pissed because of the open story lines with no resolve.

    That being said, can someone please explain what the deal is with Jason and the QB from Bon Temps? Is this explained in any of the books?

    I also looked at the website for the Sookie Stackhouse series and its mentioned that the books don't really go in any particular order. I'm planning on picking up book 4 to read for next season since they said it would follow more closely with the book. Does any one have any recommendations for any other book?  I noticed that way down the line in book numbers is the story line from the first season when Jason was suspected for the murders.

    The story with Jason and the QB is made for the show there is no referance to that cocky kid in the books at all.

    Personally I would read all the books in order. they are quick reads and by reading them all it will make more sense as to whats happening. I enjoyed all the books but the standouts for me were. "Club Dead" (book 3) (book 4) (book 7)and book 9

  • It is the end of season 3 for whoever thought it might not be. Another 9 months until more True Blood.

    I'm curious to see what the rest of Eric's plan is. He and Sookie still need to get together for real. 

    Sam and Tara both annoy me.

  • I am on book 7 right now and I have to say I like the books better. I can't stand Tara and I like that she is not a huge person in books. And I have to say am I only one who wishes Sookie and Alcide would get together. Also I wonder how the Eric thing will play out I was shocked and did not understand why he would chain himself to what's his face either. And I want to know how the hotshot stuff will turn out since all the people are so off base from the book.

  • Enough with Sookie and Bill.....I am done with those 2!!!!! It is time for Eric and Sookie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And yes why does Arlene have such a big part...I don't care about her and her psycho baby...ugh she got like 20 minutes out of the episode!!! aahhh

    Replace Arelene's storyline with Alcide...where did he go? Where is crazy Debbie? Where is the queen?

    Is the Finale 2 hours? I hope so because this episode was a little boring....And is Jesus anything? Is he like a witch or something?

  • I definitely think that this season's finale will mirror season 2's finale with another missing person (i.e. Jason). 

    Totally hoping that Eric's sun exposure leads to amnesiac Eric!! Probably my favorite part in the whole book series. 

    Really don't like angry Sam. I guess the writers of the show are taking a lot of liberties with ALL characters this season (sam, bill, eric, calvin....etc.)

    Arlene's pregnancy really confuses me, not sure what's going to happen with that.

    Werewolves have definitely been MIA...thinking they'll reappear more next season? maybe? It would be nice if we could meet Quinn sometime soon too!

    Any thoughts on if they'll have the conference in Rhodes? I think that would make for a great season! Maybe for season 4 they can to half Eric/half conference? I can only hope!

  • Too much Arlene, too much Tara, and too much Crystal (though I dislike Crystal in the show a little less than I dislike her in the books).

    I sooooo hope the show starts going in the direction the books went in book 4.  That book is SO AWESOME!  I do like some of the changes from the books to the show but book 4 is just so great.  It would be a shame if they don't take advantage of that story line.

    image

  • Having read all of the books, the show kind of frustrates me with how different it has become.

    The whole Sam storyline is getting on my nerves.  I don't like angry Sam.

    Tara, please stop with all of your angsty drama.  I really like you much better when you are a minor book character.

    Where are the werewolves?  Come back Alcide!

    And Eric = yum yumminess
