I can't believe there hasn't been more True Blood love this season. Last week's episode was amazing with all of the stuff that went down (the big showdown at Sookie's, Eric Northman staking Talbot, the Bill/Russell skirmish). This week's episode was almost sure to be a let down. Mostly, it was, until an absolutely phenomenal final scene involving Russell and the news.
Franklin and Russell were what the show needed to get it going back in the right direction after the awful story with Mary Ann last season. I'm totally digging it this year.
Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!
This show is at its best when it heaps on the crazy, which it did this week.
Early on this season, I was afraid the show was heading into "Every character is miserable, thus I am miserable watching them" territory (a trap Alan Ball fell into with Six Feet Under). These last few episodes have really turned things around.
The Jason/Crystal storyline still makes me want to punch things, but I have faith it's going somewhere.
