Of all the stories to pluck from the books, Alan Ball went with the one where shifters were being mowed down. :shuffle:

Last nights show was fast paced.

Still trying to figure out the Jesus head seen by LaFayette...and then by his mother. :rofl:

LUNA!!!! :(

I loved that Lala's mom was basically just 'okay, I'll tell him' to Jesus lol.

I squealed when I saw Denis O'Hare's name return to the opening credits. He's awesome!

Eric had the best lines of the episode. "Alcide, you sure know how to treat a lady" and "New York smells like pee and the people are rude." (Which is funny because Alex spends a lot of time in NYC)

I loved that even though Eric and Bill are still on the same team, we saw that old tension between them again, with Bill not backing down over whether Eric had told Nora. My guess though is it's Salome who unearthed Russell, and that maybe Russell is her maker.

Loved seeing Tara start to embrace her vamp side. And nice to see Jessica get to be the mentor for a change. Is it just me or is Rutina Wesley looking extremely gorgeous this season?

And I loved Sassy Sookie. Much more like the book version of the character these past few episodes IMO.

That's my initial instinct as well. We didn't see Nora's face. There's definitely some deeper story to Salome. No one outside the four -- Bill, Eric, Pam and Alcide -- needed to know. If Russell is Salome's maker, he could possibly have summoned her as Eric did Pam.

Yeah, I think it is pretty obvious that it isn't going to be Nora who helped Russell. My guess is also Salome but there could be someone who we have yet to meet.

I think that the Reverend Newlin has been glamouring Jason, and having a little fun. That is why Jason woke up naked in the chair after that dream. He looked around like "What happened to my clothes?"

Me too. :lol:

Except Andy woke up buck naked too. ;)

I'm really glad Sookie gets to be a lot sassier this season. I really enjoyed Tara/Jessica, and I really, really hope Tara gets to be something other than :mad: once she's reconciled with being a vampire.

I'm going to do spoiler tags as not everyone has seen the episode yet.

Seriously, Christopher Meloni's character is dead already? Name in the top of the show's introduction along with the main characters and he's gone by episode six?

Obviously, the conspiracy goes deeper than just Nora.

I enjoyed the episode and I find the energy is building for the season.

I just hope we don't fall back into any Sookie/Beeehl drama. They are so much more likeable as characters when they have nothing to do with each other. :)

Unless the new show runner wants to transform Alan Ball's vision, I think it's pretty clear Sookie and Bill will end up together at the end of the series in some fashion. Maybe he'll turn her or one of them will die. But I do think the series will end with Sookie and Bill together.

Since we know we're getting at least one more season after this one -- my bets are on the show running for seven seasons -- I think we'll get to enjoy them apart for a while longer.

Is there a head of the Sanguinista movement? I thought Russell was viewed as a hero but not a bonafide leader.

If there is a leader, it's not Russell. We've yet to see their leader. Russell was quite clear he's not part of any movement. I believe his words were "Order is for pussies ."

I was lucky enough to be at Comic Con and managed to get to attend the autograph session (not many people did). And I can say that without a doubt, Alex was the friendliest of the cast.

When security led the cast to the booth for the signing, everyone just walked past the lines of fans who didn't get a wristband for the signing, but Alex actually stopped to sign a few autographs, and only started moving again because security made him. Sam Trammell didn't stop, but did smile for pictures as he walked past.

I'm not a fan of what Alan Ball has done with the show, but he was extremely friendly too. And much smaller than I expected. And Kristin Bauer is super skinny in person! I've always found Joe Manganiello a bit of a douche and I still stand by that. As we were in line they had the workers hand out Alcide stickers, and when the cast were signing, he himself was handing out more. Alex is even more gorgeous in person, and I got to shake his hand! Deborah was really friendly, and Rutina was sweet as well. I didn't get to chat with Stephen, Chris or Sam, as we were being moved along really quickly, and we weren't even allowed to take pictures when they were signing. Anna didn't do the signing, which people were accepting of, since she's 5 or 6 months pregnant right now, and I can only imagine the germs they come into contact with at these things.

The panel itself wasn't that exciting, but there were a few good moments. Ryan did an amazing walking handstand across the stage. Alex signed his namecard for an audience member, then pretended to sign Chris Meloni's face before kissing it. He and Kristin were really adorable through the whole thing - she escorted him out when he was announced. Anna was really cute when she came out, stopping to rub her belly before Stephen helped her into her chair.

It was fun to hear things like their favourite scenes to shoot. Joe loved the lake scene with Anna and Alex from last season (which was filmed on Valentine's day. Anna with 2 naked men and a wolf). Alex loved Godric's death scene. Stephen and Alex talked about how much fun they had filming the trunk scene from the first episode of this season, and Alan mentioned how he called them to his office to reprimand them - they were having too much fun giggling.

Another fun part of the panel was when Alex was (of course) asked about the fan interest in him dong 50 Shades of Grey. He said he still hasn't read it, nor has he seen a script. That all he knows is that the character has a sex dungeon, like Eric does (he referred to the TB one as a 'Saw Room') and has some intense sex. I forget whether it was Anna, Kristin or Stephen, but someone added 'so your usual' (or something like that) to him.

But for the most part, you don't get anything more out of the TB panel experience than you would watching it online. The autograph session was the awesome part for me.

Has anyone read the TB comics? Michael McMillian (Steve Newlin) writes them (and was signing them at Comic Con - I met and chatted with him for a bit). If you read the latest one, it seems like it connects to the show. The long-haired guy who sits on Eric's throne and says 'Northman is history' I think is a character from the comic named Remus, who is Godric's brother. Apparently Godric's maker was a sadistic asshole, and Godric killed him, which pissed off his brother. The brother tells Eric that he wishes he would have turned him so he could have been more of a 'real' vampire. In the comic there's a flashback to right before the revelation, where Nan forces Eric and Pam to become mainstreamers. My thought on it all is that Eric does want to co-exist, but that Remus kind of got to Nora and brought her over to his side of things.

No one has commented in two weeks. This season is even worse than I think.

While I found the two Sam scenes kind of hilarious and Sam Trammel did a great job at Luna being Sam, it makes no sense why Luna would shift into Sam, especially against her own will.

I enjoy True Blood's sexy time, but the Alcide scene with the woman whose name I don't even remember made no sense. Seriously, what is this character's name? She's had all of three lines this season. She's mostly there to look pretty.
