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.

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.

Because the warepanthers were a stupid storyline

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.

Except for logic and common sense, you mean.

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.

Yup. She was a footnote in the books, almost.

That's of course an issue with a TV series. In a book, you can introduce a character and them simply get rid of them or have them play a tiny role in the next book.

In a TV show, that's much harder. If someone is introduced as a main character, it's tougher to reduce their role to a minor one for the next season...

Well, in the book, Jessica was far from a main character.

Well, there is certainly one character in the books who's central in the first book and becomes an incidental character later one:

I think the werepanther story arc was a joke by the producers on the book readers.

Oh, my bad. I forgot that they didn't have him change. I remembered the getting bitten story, but forgot about the fact that he didn't become one. Thanks for the reminder.

Besides, the problem with the books is that EVEYRONE is supernatural. It's annoying.
