If Manganiello ends up winning the Batman role, Alcide probably won't be on the show for much longer.

It would certainly be a good trade-off.

He's the best looking guy on the show. I'm surprised he never got to have sex with Sookie. They really don't know how to tie him into the main plot, though.

Wow. I can't believe Eric ripped that doctor's junk off. Even my wife was cringing at that one.

Re: Trublood Season 6 discussion *spoilers*

That was a very uneven episode, did not really care for it. Jumping between Terry's funeral (and flashbacks) and the vampire breakout and daylight fun. Also it getting kind of silly to be just keeping Warlow sitting around in the fairy plain. Did anyone like this episode?

I actually liked that they took the time to remember Terry. It sort of felt like their way of acknowledging what a soldier goes through.

I'm kind of surprised that Jason was the only one who remembered Sarah and none of the vampires did. You'd think she'd be at the top of their list.

Well, they were high from the fairy blood.

That said, I also found the episode very uneven. I almost gave up on the show last season and I think I'll call it a day after this one. It has pretty much run its course, nearly all characters have done horrible things by now and the storylines have grown somewhat repetitive. Maybe something epic will happen in the finale but if not, I'm out.

They weren't high from faerie blood, they were high from Lilith's blood, just like last season (though clearly more subdued).

Personally, I've found this season a lot of fun and very interesting. To each their own, I guess.

You should call it a day. I only hope that when next season rolls around I won't cave because there is so little on TV. I could... go outside or something?

The characters really are a bunch of monsters. Pretty much without a shred of the relatability of the plethora of TV anti-heroes around today. They even had to create that preposterous new boyfriend for the redhead to have a 'good' vampire, since the rest should all be serving consecutive life sentences at best.

The Terry scenes ranged from 'completely tedious' all the way up to 'just ok'. But what really didn't work was the cuts in between the two storylines. It felt to me like they shouldn't have been in the same episode with each other, or at least that they should have focused on each storyline for longer periods of time. It was almost like they were trying to do some kind of.... something? But god knows if I can figure out what.

But hey, at least Terry was a great guy! Oh wait... he's a war criminal right? Nvm

Also why is the Patient Zero delivery of True Blood in Hawaii? Seems to make zero logistical sense, but that probably was the least of this episode's problems.

I hear they have this thing called nature nowadays.

I only got lured back into the show this season because Bill turned into a Vampire monster at the end of last season. It sounded like an interesting development, especially after he turned out to be some sort of vampire god in this season's first episode. But I feel they haven't really used the potential of that storyline, either.

Re: Trublood Season 6 discussion *spoilers*

I thought this was a really good episode. Contrasting the funeral with the events at the prison and then dovetailing with the scene of Jason letting whatsername go was very effective.

Now I'm wondering if this group of vampires is permanently immune to the sun or if it will wear off.

Re: Trublood Season 6 discussion *spoilers*

I was wondering the same thing. Bill has been able to spend quite a long time out in the sun after drinking just one little vial of Warlow's Blood. I imagine Eric will need to get out of the sun sooner rather than later though. The effects of drinking Sookie's blood didn't last long on either him or Bill when they drank it in the past.

Wow horrible season finale on top of a horrible season. For a moment there i thought the part with Eric was going to be the cliffhanger. That would have been tragic and yet a comedic way out. Everything that happened beyond that point was just bleh. As usual, I'll watch the show until it ends, which is hopefully soon. :T

I haven't seen the finale yet. I assume the vampires will not permanently be able to stay in the sunlight. Otherwise, it wouldn't make much sense that Lillith was able to die from sunlight after drinking Warlowe's blood millenia ago.

Re: Trublood Season 6 discussion *spoilers*

I liked most of this season, but this episode showed why they need to return to 12 episodes. They just sort of copped out of the whole Warlow thing. They completely left the wolf thing dangling (not that that was a particularly compelling storyline anyway).

BSG-style time jump that was weirdly placed and weirdly handled, yet it DOES push the show in another direction. So there's that.

Shouldn't the Hep V vampires have died already instead of becoming bloodthirsty evil zombies? Last week that baby vamp's maker was dying from just one dose of tainted TruBlood. So how are these ones still alive after 6 months?

Violet has actually grown on me. Her pairing with Jason is funny and the "I <3 u truly, madly, deeply" shirt she had on made me laugh out loud. She's actually kind of adorable. In a weird way.
