It has been a helluva ride! Amazing... This show is... The premise with its raw setting and special take on humor; well-defined characters with their perfect casting and dysfunctional, but deeply sweet relationships, makes my blood effervesce and my face twitch-smile. This show is a gem i can't admire enough.
I will simply state and speculate on the many loose threads left out to snag our hearts during the finale episode as we wait for THE SUMMER SEASON 2 PREMIERE. Jeesh, it'll feel longer than waiting for summer vacation...
Jason, with his sudden random and ridiculous religious hysteria. He doesn't fanatically hate vamps, especially after having gotten close to Eddie, so what's the point of his Fellowship of the Sun membership?
Arlene and Terry - hinted-at future romance.
Jessica looking like a goth tramp- a result of her continued transformation, which was initially surprising anyway from her first appearance being 'victim personified' (a performance which would have stirred pity in even the coldest heart, but these are vampires...). Exactly what pot-stirring will she create?
(thought yall might want to see him again. Hmmhmm!) Mehcad Brooks plays the character Eggs- extremely sexy and charming, and what that means for our lovelorn Tara, who now somehow has a mysterious radiance... He better be a regular next season! It'll help Sam realize Tara's worth a competition! (Rutina was hot in that swimsuit, and anybody else not like Anna Paquin's teeth?)
Lafayette- was it he that Bill fed upon? Now that I think of it, were the 2 every really introduced? Bill must have been aware of Lafayette's connection to Tara, and therefore Sookie. Bill should've known better. How she gonna feel when she finds out he drained a friend, of all the people in town? But then she wasn't too concerned when he told her he needed to feed to heal, and they were busy embracing in the relief of each other's well-being.
Sam, and that stashed secret fortune of his. He did flip out at Arlene's engagement suggestion for Bill and Sookie. Was he upset enough that "Bookie" is back on that he would skip town? His lack of identification and financial past (which is funny because of ALL OF THAT MONEY- he did seem kind of dodgy when it came to explaining the exorcism fund, guess now we know where he's pulling from...) border on lack of American citizenship, so what is he doing? Will Tara be there for him, or has she had enough of waiting for him to finally give up on Sookie. She is every bit as special, but I fear Sookie's last loving insight into his true nature has him attached all over again. And they say dogs are loyal...
And for that matter, will Sam be there for Tara, to save her from his suspicious past acquaintance Maryann? What is her deal anyway, with the pig and the spurt vibrating? She seems to be (and this is a jump 'over the Grand Canyon' conclusion), some sort of animal witch, and she was pursuing Sam, who can become any beast. How is this contributing to her apparently vast wealth, and what is she really trying to offer the now hopeful Tara and the other take-ins. I think some major lore is going to be presented in regards to this, and some mythically fantastic showdowns!
And last, but by no means least, and by no means I mean- never mind; that foot! Whose leg and foot is that that flailed out of Andy's car! Then in a drunken self-pitying depression, after exhausting his jealousy-inspired personal vendetta against Jason, we find along with Andy, Sook and Tara, another dead body! Is it a new, but already dead character? By the skin color, the person looked to be afric- OMFG!!! I JUST REALIZED IT'S LAFAYETTE! I remember him painting his toenails that color red at the bar when he was watching the Senate campaign speech! The
