Hello! I’m so happy that many of you are continuing to join me for our “game”/discussion. I love reading all your comments even if you are “late” to the party and you don’t write till later in the week. Keep them coming!
Please return here–to this post–during show time!
Tonight’s drinking game:
Step 1: Drink before the show in anticipation of nimrodery. And then drink at any other time the nimrodery (yes–another made-up word) compels you to.
Step 2: Take an extra drink every time that you think someone’s “grief” is over the top or insincere. For example, when Bill likely says something like, “I’m sorry, Sookeh. Alcide was a good man,” we all chug.
So, here is this week’s show description:
In the aftermath of yet another bloodbath, Sam, Sookie and Jason find themselves the bearers of bad news in Bon Temps and beyond. Pam recalls the events that led her and Eric to Shreveport and Fangtasia. Bill and Jessica get nourishment from unexpected sources. Following a new lead, Sookie enlists a band of vampires and humans to track down the H-Vamps.
Item 1: The bearers of bad news–Well, Alcide’s gone. I’m guessing that’s the bad news? Did you get the sense that Alcide was a big part of the community of Bon Temps? Maybe the “beyond” is to his family? Did we ever care about Alcide’s dad?
Or maybe the “bad news” is that the vamper nappers are “unstoppable.” (Well–they did subdue Bill. LOL.) And just look how intimidating and “scary” they are…
I’m sad that Alcide’s gone in a way; I really am. But his character was sorely misused, and–as with in the books–I liked him less and less as time went on. Too bad he was just a “prop” for Bill/Sookie in the end. RIP Alcide. You deserved better. And now, we enshrine your bottom, as I become the bearer of bare news.
Item 2: Pam’s recollections that brought them to Shreveport–I wonder if emo-human-we-didn’t-know-about-mourning Eric will be the reason they moved? He moved to Louisiana to “leave behind the past” and “become the cold-hearted monster” TIIC (the idiots in charge) want us to think he is? Pam and Eric’s past could be cool to find out about, but I’m guessing that it won’t be something I care about at the end of the day–unless we get to see Eric’s bottom again.
(Are you sensing a theme?)
Item 3: Bill and Jessica–nourishment? Um—-I’m guessing Sookie feeds Bill and Adilyn feeds Jessica. But that wouldn’t be unexpected at all. What would be? Um–Jason feeding Jessica; at this point, I wouldn’t expect that. And Andy feeding Bill. LOL? Whatever. I would prefer it if Bill starved, please. That would be unexpectedly wonderful!
Item 4: Sookie leads a band of misfits against the Hep-V vamper nappers. I wonder if it will end in those pics we saw (in the previews) of Bill lighting Fangtasia on fire. Wait–I bet we’ll see Eric and Pam “opening” Fangtasia in a memory, just as we see Bill burning it down in “the present.” That would be an “amazing montage” and a huge FU to the Eric character and a prop-up for Bill, so I’d put money on it.
Sigh. I’m ready to drink already!
But until the it’s time, let’s all enjoy a lustful laugh by studying 80’s Eric and his “interesting” hairdo.
