Trivia

One of the coffins in Malcom's nest (specifically the green marble one) has "Gott ist tot" written repeatedly around it's side. "Gott ist tot" is German for "God is dead". See more »

Goofs

Forty minutes into the action, Sookie is at her grandmother's kitchen table, talking about her feelings towards Bill. She has long bangs and her dark roots are showing. Her Grannie mentions her "ability" and when the camera goes back to Sookie, she has shorter bangs, platinum blond hair and a softer makeup. Even the lighting looks all different from the previous framing. This look stays until she goes to Bill's house, peers into his window and then turns back: then, her black roots and longer bangs appear again. See more »

Tara gets laid
24 September 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

The series is picking up in excitement as Sookie(Anna Paquin) manages to escape from three evil vampires that continue to prey on humans. Her new "friend" Bill (Stephen Moyer) manages to convince the others that she belongs to him. How long that will last is anyone's guess.

In the meantime, Sookie is constantly plagued by thoughts and dreams that will likely lead up to an eventual union with Bill, but one can only guess how many episodes that will take.

At least Tara (Rutina Wesley) managed to get her needs taken care of after suffering for many months.

Hanging on to this one for as long as I can.
