So obvious

Sorry everyone, I love this show, but I hate when things are soo obvious. I def. knew way before this episode that Rene was the killer. There is no reason for his character to have such depth unless he would ultimately play a bigger role. This whole Jessica thing is probably gonna come back to haunt Bill in some way, ie. she tries to kill Sookie or something. It was obvious from almost the very beginning that Sam was a shape shifter. He barked in his sleep when Tara slept with him. He came to Sookie's rescue in the parking lots against the Rattrays. And Bill obv. knew what he was since he asked Sam to watch over Sookie and said you are the only one who can. And lastly, I think that it is also very apparent that this "social worker" woman is a vampire that goes and bails out kids that she knows have nowhere to go and either turns them or feeds on them. So it'll be semi-interesting to see where that goes from here. I just started reading the book and am only at Chapter 5, but Tara isnt even in the book yet. Sorry if I ruined anything for anyone, but Im very disappointed that things have become so obvious, I really like this show and would love to have a little suspense. Anyone else for this?... Girl loves vampire that doesnt drink human blood, vampire loves girl, shape shifter loves girl, girl goes for shape shifter, vampire comes back.... Twilight to the tee. I dunno, maybe The Sookie Stackhouse books came first.

Pick a show that isn't atleast a little obvious. Its how these things work. You give the people what they want. I happen to think that True Blood is about as original a tv show as I have seen in a while.
Everyone has had lots of fun guessing who the killer is. There has been quite a buzz about it. And while it is obvious to us all now I think the show has given us a gradual progression of clues to keep it going. We had no idea in the beginning! Or at least a lot of us didn't!
As for Twilight, I've never read it or the Sookie Stackhouse books. But I don't really think it matters all that much. Theres plenty out there like me who dont read horror or sci fi but have been enjoying the show. Yes certain things are obvious. But I guess its pretty much like all genres of literature. Certain things are obvious its the little twists and embellishments that you fall in love with.
I am most certainly in love with True Blood! lol!

Rene didn't have /that/ much more depth than any of the other supporting characters, I didn't think it was uber obvious it was him (even though I've read the series and already knew :P)I agree about the Jessica thing... continuing on with her was just too random for her to not eventually pop up again.As for Sam... it's obvious if you're already kind of knowledgeable in how stories like these play out. But for someone who doesn't watch a lot of shows like these, they probably wouldn't really connect the two until Sam explained it. I know a lot of my friends who haven't read the books totally didn't even think of it.
SPOILERS BELOW!
Actually, I have a hunch that the social worker is the fairy (icr her name) that helps Sookie out in the books (even though it's way too early to be her... the car thing is what got me, as well as her appearance. The fairy has a car like that, and is described the same way.) I could be wrong, but I don't think she's a vampire because the officer knew who she was - she'd be suspicious if the people this woman took in were never heard from again.
Also, I don't think the series has that many similarities to Twilight. It's much darker, and the love triangle thing.. I don't really like how that's turning out in the show (wasn't even in the book) but it still adds that extra element, which is the point I guess.

I love the show, very hooking and all but if Sookie acts stupid like that all through the rest I'll drop it. I mean stick with one thing, why go kiss one guy when the other doesnt show because he's off to get punished for saving your sorry ass? I love her but and hope she really is worth all of this because I dont care for an unsteady character.Also, can anybody explain why the hell Sam went to snif Dwan's bed after she was killed because if not for anybody else, that turn on some alarms on my part. Is it some sort of greaving shapeshifter's ritual we dont know about or is he just perverted that way?

Stago:I thought it had something to do with the animal thing. A way of mourning her. Esp. as he finds it easiest to turn into a dog. I thought maybe its was like that sent rubbing thing that animals do. Anybody else think the same??? or am I barking up the wrong tree? (ba ha ha ha sorry terrible joke I know but couldn't resist it! lol!)
Endoftheline: Fairy thing! I'm intigued! I had thought some sort of vamp but the point you make about the police officer makes a lot of sense! Hope it is a fairy that would be way cool. (and not predictable! lol!)

Ok, I don't mean to be rude and I know everyone is entitled to their option but get real, if we analyze every show or movie, they are all predictable.
Most of us go on roller coasters at theme parks even though, they try to add more speed and more loops and of course there's the long lines where we see an overview of the ride before going on so coasters are predictable and we still ride them.
My point (if you couldn't predict it) is I am along for the "TRUE BLOOD" ride and I wait in line for a whole week (soon to be all winter).
Lol Just a thought to think about :P

Good lord, lms why put spoilers right at the opening sentence where everyone can see? You just ruined this episode for me. Thanks a lot for being so inconsiderate. Hope you enjoyed ruining the surprise for others. Think a little more before you post next time..

What peeves me (beside the fact that no, not all of those were obvious and no, not all of them are true - like how obvious that Tara's friend's a Vampire. I'm pretty certain she isn't.) is that somehow, Twilight is the origin of all things vampire, nevermind decades of vampire fiction (that's actually written well, and not as a stilted teen angst-drama rip-off of Romeo and Juliet).

To those who think that the woman who picked up Tara is a vampire. She picked Tara up at day time, vampires can't be out at day, find the connection, God it's not hard to use a little logic.

The social worker looks like the Woman with the pig that Tara almost ran over. She might be another shape shifter...maybe a woman that Sam knows and has history with. That's my hunch.

About the show being predictable.. yeah, it totally is. But in the books, its not so obvious who the killer is because so many other characters have detailed stories. Of course the show had to leave some of this out, but just so you know.. the books were very suspenceful. And on the social worker, I'm pretty sure she's the maenad (sp?). Someone already mentioned this, but she is definetly the woman with the pig.

Oh geez, for those of you who say it's predictable, OF COURSE it's predictable. There are only about 9 or ten different plot lines for ALL EXISTING LITERATURE in the world. When all of your elements are the same, (vampire who doesn't drink blood, girl with some special ability that sets her apart, shapeshifter, etc.) OF COURSE it's going to sound the same. It's not /what/ is being said, it's /how/ it's being said.

Titanic was not predictable, at all. :)
