There is a section of the True Blood audience who grieves for the Sookie-Bill relationship; the re-introduction of Lorena in the storyline may not make sense, along with Bill's defection to Mississippi and his albeit reluctant acceptance of the more brutal nature of that kingdom. But if you're a fan of Harris's novels, you've seen this coming. Eric and Sookie have a full-on relationship. And yes, Alcide and Sookie flirt a bit, too. And there's nothing wrong with Alcide! He's a great addition to this cast...well, at least his abs are. ;)
Look for more with the werewolves, more from Sookie and Bill, and...let's not forget the werepanthers. Calvin Norris and the good folks from Hot Shot just outside of Bon Temps have a real wild side. They caught Jason's scent already. And, do I smell fairy dust this season, too??? Hmmm.
If you get a chance, check out the HBO On Demand "minisodes" on the main characters like Sookie, Bill, Jason, Sam, Jessica, even Eric and Pam at Fangtasia. You'll love seeing backstory moments to the larger story arc built into season three.
Patience is a virtue with season three of True Blood. There's a lot of *new* this season, and it's sometimes difficult to introduce everything in the span of a 50-minute show from week-to-week. But trust me, you'll definitely be able to get your fang-on this summer! Rewatching episodes in chronological order On Demand will help you see the cohesion that some of you may feel is missing this season. And read Harris's Club Dead if you haven't already....
Until next time, dearest fangbangers and vamparazzi!
