    I don't think Sookie can be glamored.

    Sookie is immune to glamoring, however what Bill told her needs to be true for awhile so the authority doesn't get wise that Bill didn't glamor her, his life is at stake.
    I want a Jessica spinoff show.

    Bill and Eric have tried to keep Sookie's "fairyness" secret from everyone. They killed Nan to keep the secret. So certainly Bill believes that the authority does not know that Sookie is a fairy. And her "fairyness" is why she cannot be glamored.

    Does Sookie know that? Because she seemed awfully scared when Bill moved to "glamour" her, until he shook his head...

    OK - I may be showing my lack of knowledge here but

    Isn't True Blood based on something like a comic book or a regular series of True Blood books and therefore aren't all the stories and sub-plots already pre-determined?

    Or did I make that up?

    I am enjoying the show but admit I am fast forwarding almost completely through the Iraq subplot and the smoke monster stuff.

    There is like a 13 book series lol, but my co-worker has told me that the show shies away from it a lot.

    The show has strayed very far from the books, mostly for the better IMO.

    I know how much sex, nudity, gore, and violence there is in the show, so I can't even imagine what there would be in the books to shy away from.

    But there are comic books. Which are based on the TV show, not the original books.

    While I haven't read the books I've read that Lafayette is killed in the books so they are obviously not following the book plotlines 100%.
    I guess if I read the books it would be a good thing because the HBO series can still surprise me in some ways.

    I used to like this show until it became a show about 'jokey one liners'. The comedy gets in the way of the horror/suspense aspect of the show (IMO).

    I think she does, yes. I think there was at least one instance where a vampire tried to glamor Sookie before and it didn't work. I have a vague recollection of Sookie looking at the vampire, puzzled, wondering why she was being told to do something that she would not do.

    I think she was scared because of the whole situation (her life was in danger from the Authority, after all) and also was upset by what Bill was saying.

    I think the books are much better, but they are very different, so they don't really spoil each other. Not killing off Lafayette in the show was a good call. Giving Tara such a big role, not so much. :(

    If they killed Tara at the expense of killing off Lafayette too though, I'd tell him to go ahead.

    I hate Tara that bad
