True Blood "Don't You Feel Me?" 7/21/2013

OK, I realize that this is a fantasy universe, but even here, the Second Law of Thermodynamics has to apply. So Warlow's plan of just endlessly recycling blood between himself and Sookie is never going to work -- with each cycle, they're going to lose a little energy, because they need to use some just to live. (Un-live?) Ultimately they'll have to feed on someone else.

Strange that Billith didn't already know that Jessica was gone / in trouble -- he had no trouble sensing Sookie's distress.

Am I suppose to care about the Sam/Alcide storyline? I just can't seem to.

Wow Terry's death was sudden.

Alcede and Sam is worthless as a story I agree.

same thoughts here, i sped through the scenes after a few of moments. most of the tawdry werewolf "chip on the shoulder" storyline has been mundane.

the predictable sookie & ben intimacy finally happened - what took so long?

How all of a sudden does Sookie have enough faerie power to go into the faerie world? I don't remember exactly how she got there the last time but I do not think she was able to do it on her own. Also, the last time she was there for only a little while yet when she came back to the real world 2 or 3 years had passed. Is that going to happen again this time?

Gerry

P. S. Didn't Sookie say her faerie powers were getting weaker?

Yes Sookie was supposedly running out of Fairy power and this was not congruent.

She needed Warlow and his power to get there I think.

True she did have to have him give her his hand.

Based on the end of the episode, she appears to be re-charging them through the crotch.

Yeah when I saw that I could hear Pam's comment about her magic vagina in the back of my mind.

I don't think that was meant to be a solution so much as foreplay.

The sudden one for me was Billith ripping the head off the Governor.

I saw it coming too, but I still don't get it. Is that it? What was the point? Why didn't they just end him last season with the demon? That was HIS drama/story. This season he had nothing going on. Unless he is coming back as a zombie and his story isn't over yet. I just don't see the point.

Me either, unless it's just to reduce cast size. But if that's what they're after, the whole Sam/Alcide storyline could just go away. It's really not adding anything to the show. Terry's character, struggles, and the way he manages to keep a lid on Arlene's craziness and nastiness is much more interesting to watch.

Heck, they could drop Sookie from the show and I wouldn't mind that much. I knew she was going to end up knocking boots with Warlow as soon as he showed up young and good looking.

I agree Terry is the wrong character to kill of it is just about cast size. He is much more interesting than Sam or Alcede.

I agree I wouldn't really care if they killed off magic vagina danger whore either.

Eric, Pam are what make the show. Even Tara is far better with Pam and Jessica than snaggletooth.

I believe it is called a super-snatch. Or a fairy vagina.

Since it's (very loosely these days) based on the Sookie Stackhouse book series I don't see that ever happening.

YES, I forgot about that! I don't know if that will recharge Sookie's faerie power, but it probably was needed to get to the faerie land.

I respectfully disagree!! I still like Sookie's character and I do think she has a very pleasant figure!

So what about the time difference when she comes back from faerie land?

I just finished reading the latest Sookie Stackhouse book, and on the cover it says it's the last book. That's too bad. The books are way better than the show.

I thought the governor had some magic way of making glamouring not work. How did it work for the girl? All the vampires could have escaped if it was that easy.

I've actually been enjoying this season. I think it is stronger than the last several. It may help that I've stopped watching with a critical eye, and I just take it for what it is.

I'm liking it too. It's going in directions that aren't completely predictable, unlike previous years. I quite like the idea of Sookie embracing her inner danger whore.

There's also a little more campiness. I laughed out loud at the whole "passing the arm back and forth" routine, it was so ridiculous.

same for me, compared to last season. i had set my hopes too high when chris meloni joined the crew, and didn't recover from the disappointment when his character was gone so early. he was one of my favorite unpredictable villians on oz.
