I think they established that skin-walking was dangerous to your health.

But Sam's brother managed to do it many times and for much longer periods of time. I'll just tell myself "because they wanted to get rid of the actress" and move on!

We don't know how many other times she has done it, and she's a girl!

I thought she had been shot, or am I not remembering correctly?

Yeah, I vaguely remembered her getting injured when she and Sam stormed the compound.

ETA: Nope... just shifting sickness I guess.

I can live with that, even though I hate dumping extra kids into a storyline.

Not to mention that they were sleeping at night!

I thought that the night of Billith was getting into early morning and they were settling into bed before sunrise. Since all the windows are blacked out during the day it could have been there was sunlight creeping in but we could not see it.

Yes, I think that's right.

Yes here also. In the earlier seasons they always ended up someplace other than a bed. A coffin, or in the dirt under a house or something like that. So I too was confused about the bed!

That isn't completely true, there were some swanky vampire hotels where they had beds. I think they also might have some in the kings house.

YES, you're right! Now I even remember once when Bill was being held by Russell Edgington (then King of something) Bill was in a room surrounded by silver but I do remember a bed being there.

I guess it only makes sense that if you're in a regular old house to reduce your risk of some sort of accident or tornado or something hitting during the day.

And maybe some vampires are just traditionalists.

I'd think that sleeping in the dirt under a house, or in a coffin would be very uncomfortable. I'm of a mind that a move up into a bed would be one of the first things that occurred when the opportunity presented itself.

I guess it all depends on how loosely you interpret the intent of the framers...

I kind of agree with about this much of your post.

The show, at least this episode, has just moved to an "all gore, all the time" situation, and while I'm not offended per se, it seems like they're substituting blood for writing to an extent. This is the only episode of the new season we've seen thus far, I'm hoping things will pick up a bit.

TY, I was beginning to wonder if Shaunnick and I were to only ones who noticed a slippage.
