I want to dub this the Heartbreak episode.
That pretty much was the theme, wasn't it? Well, heartbreak and dread, for me. Things seemed a little too happy there for a bit with so many town's folk rallying to Bill's side, and Sam sorta getting the girl for a bit even while maybe being a pyscho dog man, and Jason actually looking at Tara finally (if not really seeing her) and Gran being so excited about the meeting while also getting threats... I just couldn't help but feel this mounting dread through the whole episode.
I'm definitely heartbroken over Gran. That last scene was utterly horrific. God, poor Sookie. I don't even know what else to say about that. The Stackhouse kids are already so damaged, I feel awful for them and I'm dreading how they're going to handle this. *wince*
Also, Tara throwing trash on Jason and the blonde bimbo- very much appropriate.
Oh my goodness, yes it was. Before that, it was hard to watch Tara get her hopes up even a little when it comes to Jason because she's so self aware and she damned well knows what he's like. But man, that still had to hurt like motherfucker.
*Lafayette takes a really sinister turn with this. After the cuteness of the exchange with Tara, it was disturbing to see him pull the super drug dealer moves on Jason.
Absolutely. During the whole Tara/Jason story this episode, my thoughts couldn't help but keep going back to Lafayette and why in the world he would push V back on Jason even after seeing how upset Tara was about. In fact, I felt like there was an underlying meanness to Lafayette's decision because
of his scene with Tara. I also can't really figure out why he finally spilled the beans about Tara's feelings to Jason. I mean, clearly L and Sookie both have known how she feels for years, but they haven't ever clued in Jason before, out of respect I suppose. So why now suddenly? We could theorize that maybe Lafayette thought the V would finally let Jason open up and connect with Tara, but dang, he knows Jason well too so surely he had to know it wouldn't end with puppies and rainbows for the two of them? His motives seemed darker than that to me tonight. I don't know though. It seems like something else is going on with Lafayette and I have a feeling it's bad. Maybe with his V supplier?
Bill's story was sad. I'm still not really connecting with Bill all that much, but his backstory did at least interest me in him a little more. I hope we see the lady who vamped him in the present. She seems CrAzy. I think she'd make a great recurring villain. Ee! I missed Eric and Pam tonight though.
Is Sam the killer?
Maybe why Sookie can't read his mind.
She can read his mind though. Remember, she said he just doesn't sound like other people sometimes. Sometimes it's just sounds, or rushing waves or something? Also, in the one epi where he hugged her and basically thought all intensely at her about loving her? He still might be a psycho though. Who knows. Sam creeps me out!
