True Blood: A Quandary *Spoiler Alert*

with 10 comments

Yesterday, I watched the finale of season 3 of True Blood and was curious about how they chose to end the season. The multi-cliffhanger ending really wasn’t a good step for the show in my opinion. However, who am I to say what will work or what will not.

In the show, I am glad that they spared Russell Edgington because I like him as a progressive villain. If they had wasted him this early, I would have felt left down in the storyline. He is an interesting character that they have created, and I want to know what they plan on doing with him in the future. Let’s face it; he is not going to stay locked in that cement for very long.

I’m glad that the whole thing with Bill being a deceitful bastard finally aired out. I don’t like Bill…he is a shell of a vampire. I don’t necessarily want to see him die (as in the fight between him and Sophie Anne); however, he is one of those vampires that I don’t care for as much because he is whiny and lackluster.

The whole Sookie going to be with the fairies thing does not set with me. I don’t like the whole thing…I don’t know what exactly is going to happen because they are playing fast and loose with the books. I am wondering what the hell they are planning on doing with the books as a whole…are they planning on following the books or are they divulging from the storyline entirely.

Honestly, these are my gut shot reactions to the finale…I don’t know what is going to happen. However, when Bill said to kill Pam, my heart sank, and I thought that would be the end of the finale. I was glad that they proceeded to screw all the characters’ personalities in the show…I wonder what their thoughts are for the next season. Will they go with what the books predict or will it be something else?

True Blood Season 3

leave a comment »

So, I’m not going to post spoilers in this post. However, I am excited by the beginning of the 3rd season. This is partially because I have been reading the books. I am really wanting to see what they do with the whole 3rd book Up till now, they have been following basic story lines of book 1 and 2. I’m intrigued to see what they are going to change and keep the same. I’m also interested in a few other things.

Pam’s character development. In the books, Pam’s character is much more well-rounded. In the first episode in an exchange between she and Lafeyette, you see a little more of this. I can’t help it. I love a woman who is powerful and dangerous. Pam is this. Also, her character has subtext that makes me wonder more about her.

Werewolves. I’m interested to see how they show werewolves within the frame of the show. In the books, the werewolves are pretty scary and vicious. I hope that they show this to the fullest within the framework of narrative. Will they be scary like the show has built them up to be? Or will they fail?

Will they follow the biggest plot development in book 3 or will they continue to make everything semi-happy. If they do introduce the “betrayal” as I’ll call it, it will make an interesting change in the dynamic of the show. Eric will become a much bigger player and thereby Pam. I would like this change…not that I don’t like Bill, but I like Eric better.

I guess that all my questions will be answered as the season progresses. I can hardly wait to get my True Blood on. It will be an exciting few weeks of waiting and watching.
