Did You Know?


(at around 20 mins) When Sookie gets in her car upon leaving Merlott's, she lets out an exaggerated sigh and her breath is visible. So despite the setting of summer in Louisiana, it's clearly a cold day on the Los Angeles set. See more »


Orry Dawson: [to Jason in jail] Officially the church can't condone what you did. You took the lives of four women. Women who had tainted themselves and their race. But still human women. Hey.
[motions for him to come closer]
Orry Dawson: But we do recognize that even though your methods may have been flawed, your intentions were pure.
Jason: [utterly confused] I got no idea what you're talking about.
Orry Dawson: That's smart. Don't admit to anything.

Great Conclusion of the First Season
21 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rene pays a visit to Jason in the jail and then Sookie arrives to see her brother. Meanwhile Tara is welcomed by Maryann and stays in her fancy manor. Jason is approached by a priest of the anti-vampire church Fellowship of the Sun. Sookie accepts a ride of Rene to her house; when the serial-killer chases her, she runs to the graveyard crying for help. Bill awakes, leaves his grave and runs in the sun to help her while Sam heads to her house first and then to the cemetery. When the serial- killer is murdered by Sookie, Jason is discharged from prison.

"You'll Be the Death of Me" is a great conclusion of the First Season. What happened to Lafayette? What is the connection between Sam and Maryann? These questions will only be replied in the next season that I look forward to see. The airhead Jason now has joined the cult Fellowship of the Sun and I believe Bill will have serious problems with this stupid character and also with the outcast Jessica. Even Eric can not support the annoying, but gorgeous vampire. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Assim Você Vai me Matar" ("This Way You Will Kill Me")
