Yea, the vamp at the end was Bill's maker, she says when she is on top of Bill that they share the same blood. Which I think causes curiosity, does Bill's maker know when Sookie is in trouble or can track her? Since Bill's blood is his maker's blood.

Yeah - you're right Hanso - I remember now on one part where the manservant interuppted Tara and Eggs and Maryann slapped him around or something - I think.

Absolutely loving this second season so far because I sense a war on the horizon and the writers are building that angle up (of course I haven't read the books so if I'm wrong here, let me know). It seems that there are some lines being drawn in the sand.

And seeing Eric's history this week was outstanding. Can't wait for more of that. I take it that Eric is indeed Eric the Red, the infamous viking?

I do agree that Ball and Co. should lay off the relationship angle between Sookie and Bill for a while. It's been a bit heavy-handed this season but if that commentary/love/lust is a set-up for something coming later down the road, I'll forgive it.

After going into fanboy shock upon the cancellation of Rome and Deadwood, it's nice to have a new hour long show on HBO to love. Keep it up.

The books don't really give any guidence for the show.  For example, Lafayette was only on two pages of the first book and dead by the second.  Also, characters like Jessica are completely new and Jason is almost completely absent from the second book.

What I am saying is Ball and Co. are taking the characters from the books and a very loose sketch of the plot (Eric sends Bill and Sookie to Dallas) and creating a new story with more detail, more fleshed out characters and a different plot.

I actually like the writing of the show better than the books.

 

Now, to shift gears, I do think Jason is being set up for something.  The Fellowship has plenty of willing soldiers to join their vamp killing army but for some reason they are rapidly promoting him through the ranks and telling him he is a leader when we all can see he isn't the brightest guy in the room.  Either he is going to be a fall guy or they want him for a suicide mission.  I can't tell yet if Sarah is still manipulating him or if she isn't on board with her hubbys plan.

I can't believe I just found this review. :\ I kept thinking it hadn't been posted yet.

My feelings about the episode are just "meh."

Eric, as a Viking, not wanting to die? i thought vikings lived for death and mainly wished to die in battle. Wtf?

Bill and Sookie's romance smoochie's are probably forced in there because they felt it would please the females that watch the show.

LaFeyette....still trying to figure out what's going on with him. He just seems to be a character that's just floating around with no real direction.

And last, but not least.....I gotta agree with hanso. If only my French teacher  from High School would have given rewards like that. *sigh*

I don't think Jason's being set up for anything.  He's just been the most physically able of the soldiers.  Also, he doesn't really seem bright enough to question orders.  Like a good little soldier.

Good call on Bill's maker.   I didn't recognize her, but Mrs fft figured it right away.

Maryann definitely has something in store for Tara.  The question is, does Eggs (wtf kind of name is that anyway?) know about it, or is he a pawn, too?  I can't believe Tara was so stupid to be manipulated into having them all stay at Sookie's.  That was dumb of her.
