    So far in the show, we haven't had any indication that Jason has fairy blood. But you just spoiled that revelation for us.

    Not true, we knew that Sookie's fairy blood came from her grandparents (which are Jason's grandparents).

    Trust me, the show has wandered so far off the reservation compared to the books that no one really knows anything.

    Just because we knew Jason and Sookie had the same grandparents does not mean we knew that Jason also had Fairy blood. Them having the same grandparents did not mean Jason could read thoughts. Siblings don't automatically inherit all the same traits. But now we have been told he does have fairy blood.

    Well now we know that Jessica or another vampire who feeds on Jason will be able to walk in the sunlight. We didn't know that yet.

    I don't think we know that at all. Having a fairy bloodline doesn't guarantee you have any of the "specialness".

    "Bloodline" and "blood" are two different things. Bloodline is ancestry and we knew Jason and Sookie are siblings. Blood is what vampires take from your veins. Agatha Mystery said Jason has fairy blood like Sookie she didn't say bloodline. If his blood is fairy blood it has special powers and we did not know that before.

    Wow, let me try it this way. If my grandfather is Irish both my brother and I will have Irish blood.

    If it were possible for our grandfather to be Fae, we would both have Fae blood. We are related, no big mystery how that works.

    I am good and math and disorganized. My brother is a clean freak who can't add. Those are traits that have nothing to do with what kind of blood we have.

    Sookie can read minds, Jason can't. That doesn't mean they both don't have the same blood from their grandfather.

    We aren't talking about their ancestry, we are talking about their literal, liquid, drinkable blood. When a vampire drinks fairy blood they can walk in sunlight.

    Right. You are assuming that Agatha means that Jason has SPF blood, and I am not. None of use will know for sure (including Agatha) until we see what happens on the show.

    Seriously, how are you not getting what people are trying to tell you. Just because someone has the bloodline of a particular race/species/supernatural being what-have-you, does not mean they will exhibit all the features of that bloodline. Both Sookie and Jason are attractive because they have fae blood. ONLY Sookie has the extra special ability to read minds though. It is not like Jason is going to suddenly discover some hidden power.


    <------------- Not a book reader.



    Although, now that I hopefully cleared that up for you, one wonders why Jason never turned into a werepanther.

    Wrap your mind around that one. :D

    To further complicate a tangent that is already gone stupid, the fae blood was not from Sookie and Jason's "grandparents."
    Adele Stackhouse "Gran" had an affair with a fairy named Fintan in an attempt to have children as her husband Earl was sterile.
    Neither she nor her husband Earl had fae blood.
    The union with Fintan produced Corbett Stackhouse, Sookie and Jason's father and another sibling, Linda who is Hadley's mother.

    So while Fintan was their biological grandfather and the source of the fae blood, Earl was their family grandfather.

    Oh Good Lord. I didn't spoil anything. They are siblings. She inherited her fairy blood. Jason has to have it as well, as they are siblings. They have the same parents. Just because you have fairy blood doesn't automatically mean that you have fairy powers, as he hasn't exhibited any (aside from being attractive). He is now part werepanther. It's entirely possible (pure speculation here) that that might preclude his blood from giving the 'walk in the light' ability. The walking in the light thing is NOT in the books as best as I can recall. So I haven't spoiled a danged thing, as that isn't a book story line. Heck, Tara's storyline is not in the books, and Lafayette dies in the first book, so his entire storyline isn't there, either.

    And I've heard that Jessica is as different from the books as you can get. ;)
