An Alan Ball episode finally. I liked it but there's no making up for a pretty weak season sadly but it did speed up the momentum of the show a lot.
. Russell and his very to the point views about humans was great. A nice contrast to the boring Order", "Peace", "Mercy" and Lilith stuff being spouted by Roman and a bunch of vamps who's names I still don't know.
. Roman didn't do the explody things that vamps normally do when staked, so I hope he's not gone. Chris Meloni is great. I just wish they had given him a better character and story.
. Eric glamouring Alcide was great
I am glad Sookie undid it pretty quickly though.
. I was dreading Alcide getting drawn into the pack politics but I have to say I thought it was pretty cool when he showed up and faced off with the new pack leader. Fair play to that girl for siding with him. She probably wants to bang him ... fair play again
. Pam dragging Tara away was pretty funny. I do wish Jess had kicked her whiny ass though
. The Fairy stuff is still pretty meh but I do wonder who the vamp was that sensed Sookie's blood? I'm thinking Eric, not sure why.
. Still don't care about Fire Demon but the Arlene and Terry scene was great and really sad
I kind forget how good Carrie Preston is. Arlene is another character who deserves better story lines.
. And Alcide had his shirt off
