What I’m Watching: True Blood

True Blood: Season 3, Episode 6 “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues” (B)

When a show puts its central characters in jeopardy, it’s hard to believe that they’re not going to survive their ordeals. Someone like Tara may be expandable, sure, although they’ve kept her around much longer than most would like, but there’s no way Bill’s going to die, despite having all of his blood drained and pretty much coming as close to dying as he possibly can. I flashed back to him running in the sunlight to save Sookie and just collapsing in a heap in the first season finale, so I have little doubt that Bill will soon be good and fine. I am hopeful that Lorena will soon depart from this show’s universe since she’s been nothing but trouble since she first showed up. I am very intrigued about exactly what Eric is up to since he’s betraying so many allegiances that soon no one will trust him. It’s good to see the Queen again, and the idea of her and the King as a pair should be quite interesting. Sookie asking the King all of her questions just breaks down how little she knows and how much crazy stuff there is to know. Tara and Sookie’s decently-coordinated escape plan seems doomed to fail, and Lorena feasting on Sookie certainly won’t help matters. The arrival of Alcide should, though. Even if it’s a bit more slow-moving, I’m finding the events back in Bon Temps to be the most engaging. Lafayette and his unlikely romance with Jesus, now most likely threatened by the revelation of Lafayette’s profession. Arlene and Jessica are quite fun together, and Jessica glamoring the grumpy customer to leave all her money and then feeding on her was a neat, devilish trick.
