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 »

Confronting Maryann and setting things up for the third season
30 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As we come to the concluding episode of the season it is time for the showdown between Maryann and those planning to stop her from raising the god Dionysus. Jason and Andy have armed themselves and plan to kill her, Bill and Sam have another plan which the viewer isn't told about until it is put in to operation… and I won't spoil it here. Once Maryann is defeated the townsfolk are freed from her possession but have no idea what they have done; some of them have a few wacky theories though! Most of them are happy not knowing, Eggs however is determined to find out what he has done, something he will surely regret when he learns the awful truth.

This was a decent conclusion to the season although Maryann was defeated rather early in the episode; I kept wondering if she was going to return but she didn't. The way she was defeated wasn't a total surprise but it was effective. The remainder of the episode was not without excitement though, including one real shock when a character was killed! I look forward to seeing the next season although it is a pity that the excellent Michelle Forbes won't be featuring again. The ending was certainly a 'To be continued…' moment so I hope it isn't too long before the next season airs here.
