Did You Know?


The tee shirt Terry Bellefleur wears in Merlotte's near the end of the show says: "WARNING: Beaucoup Dien Cai Dau: I suffer from occasional loss of mental stability and become very violent with only slight provocation. The Veterans Administration has determined that both mental and physical harassment of my person may be hazardous to your health and well being. So stay the hell out of my face. Thank you." Pronounced "boo-coo din-key-dow", "Beaucoup" is French for "very much", and "Dien Cai Dau" is a Vietnamese saying that is the equivalent of "crazy as a kicking rooster", much like the American expression "mad as a wet hen". It is common jargon adopted by the US soldiers during the Vietnam War, and is still used to some extent by some in the armed forces to this day, just like "Gung-ho" became common USMC jargon after WWII. So it is likely Terry Bellefleur became familiar with the phrase as an Iraqi War veteran with self-acknowledged PTSD. See more »


Maxine Fortenberry: [tranced] What would it do you to keep your own mother locked up in her own house. Norman Bates!
Hoyt Fortenberry: You know I'm going to take everything you've said for the last two days, about me, about daddy and I'm gonna lock it up in a little box and I'm gonna forget it ever happened.
Maxine Fortenberry: [growling] This is bigger than your petty little feelings. A god is coming into our midst. Does any part of your puny brain understand what that means?
Hoyt Fortenberry: We're stayin' home!

The Food of the Gods
2 November 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lafayette is possessed and subdues Sookie and forces her to change her clothes to be the maid of honor of Maryann that is wearing the grandmother's wedding dress. Maryann is not capable to control Sookie and tells her that she is beyond human and Sam is her wedding gift. Hoyt is having troubles with his mother. Bill threatens Eric for selling of vampire blood V but he does not know that the Queen is behind the scheme. Jason and Andy arrive in the Stackhouse's property and see an orgy in the lawn but they are possessed by Maryann. Bill tells Sam that he needs him to be the receipt in Maryann's wedding and exchange him for Sookie. Maryann summons her bull horn god Dionysus to marry her. Eggs stabs Sam and he telepathically orders Sookie to destroy everything. Maryann chases Sookie and sees a bull that she believes is her god; but it is actually Sam that takes her heart and destroys the evil maenad. The locals return to normal with gossips and conspiracy theories and the truth is hidden. Hoyt tells his mother how offensive she was with Jessica and telling lies to him along his life. Eggs has gaps in his memory and blood on his hands and wants to know the truth. Sookie helps him and he finds that he had killed people. Sam visits his stepmother expecting to meet his biological parents. Hoyt comes to visit Jessica while she is attacking a truck driver. Bill goes with Sookie to a French restaurant to propose her. Jason kills Eggs to protect Andy and the detective takes the blame for the shot to protect Jason.

The conclusion of the second season is only reasonable and quite disappointing, and I expected much more from Alan Ball. The powerful Queen is silly and annoying. The conspiracy theories raised by the locals to explain their craziness are funny. The consequences of the attack of Jessica to a truck driver and Sam seeking out his parents will certainly be explored in the next season. I believe Eric might be behind the abduction of Bill. In general, the use of silver to attack the vampires, instead of crucifixes and holy water and garlic, is weird and a rupture with the fear of the traditional vampire; maybe a reflex of non-catholic writers that change traditional symbols of the legend. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
