This is my one hundredth post here at Eric and Sookie Lovers, can you believe it? I cannot quite believe it myself for it seems as if I have been a part of this blog since its inception. Before I go on with this monumental post, I would like to thank my Viking Wenches here at ESL.
First, to Erika for taking me on as a staff writer and allowing me to start up new features for the blog and for letting me have a place to mouth off with my rants and opinions to like-minded people or to people who may not have given a shit, as the case may be!
To Bee and Evie, for not minding one bit that an outsider (read newbie) was coming into a territory you had well and truly earned your place in, wanting to muck shit up with her rabid ways. I know you must have thought ‘damn this chick is so going to upset the apple cart and can we vote her off the island please?” I just want you ladies to know that you rock and I love you!
So to Bee, Erika and Evie I want you to know that I see you three as family and that will never change! I see us as a functional/dysfunctional family at times but family nonetheless.
Now that I made you cry, on with the post!
We are now at the halfway mark of this season of True Blood and already so much has a happened! We have been on quite the ride so far and it is so much better than the season before it as it seems we have gone back to basics a bit. For me, the best part about this show is the Viking but that does not mean I do not pay attention to the other characters.
Rather than go into a bunch of things I have already talked about endlessly already, I will let pictures and gifs do most of the talking. This is a celebration post after all!
ALCIDE ‘ALPO-MALE’ HERVEAUX
I think I have stated many a time just how much this whole storyline completely bores me. I don’t even know why we have to suffer through it at all. I don’t care about Alcide and his daddy issues. I know the plight of the vampires will soon be on the were’s shoulders as well but right now they are pretty useless and feel so far removed from the main plot. Leave Emma alone, she really is of none you your concern, you big bully! Excuse me while I get up to relive myself!
Sam, where for art thou Sam? Did you get lost in the subplots? Why, yes I think you did and it doesn’t really matter as you don’t really have a story anyway, outside of Luna dying and taking care of her child. I have no idea what his purpose even serves (same as Alcide), what little story he has just feels like a filler that takes away from the really interesting storylines(same as Alcide again) and I am bored. This plot is also far removed from the main plot and it is waste of Sam’s talents. At least my La La is fitting in with more places in the storyline……speaking of…….
AMAZING LA LA! I simply love him with all my heart. When talking about Luna shifting back into herself on national TV, his comment was hilarious. La La along with Jason is my comic relief. Lafayette is and was not only essential to the plot of Sam and Emma but also to the main plot of Sookie and her issues, it all ties in and thank God Nelsan was not marginalized. Lafayette should never be put in a corner!
JASON THE LOVABLE IDIOT
Jason Stackhouse always seems to get the short end of the stick and this season is no exception. He is always in pure Jason form and I would not have him any other way. Jason is my other comic relief besides my La La! You can count on him always to give you one hell of a laugh! The way he went about killing the vampires and strutting his I hate all this attitude, it was worth watching over and over. The way he loves his sister is very endearing as well, even when Jason acts like a jackass!
BILLITH and JESSICA
I find this Bill a little more interesting but I still want him to take some responsibility for his actions because we all know he never has. If anyone deserves their comeuppance it is Bill Compton. Like Lilith says this week, ‘It is all on your shoulders” Just in case, he does not take responsibility then this picture speaks volumes and Lilith can take Mr.Compton with her!
Jessica and her relationship with Bill just keeps getting creepier and creepier and I hope this ends soon,like very soon because Jessica needs to wise up! She has been a vampire longer than Tara who beats her by a mile as a newbie. VAMP UP Jess I know you have been through a lot but so have we all!
BEN…..WARLOW…..BENLOW OR WHOEVER THE HELL YOUR ARE!
I am still on the fence about this guy but I will say this, if he can really stick it to Bill/Billith then I will love the guy for life. I may not want him with Sookie but if can give Bill his comeuppance (which he so richly deserves) then I am all for it! ALL HAIL BENLOW, you picking up what I am putting down?
I am really loving Andy this season, becoming a daddy is the best thing that could have ever happened to him, even if it was twelve kinds of crazy! I felt so bad for him when three of daughters lost their light thanks to the likes of Bill Compton! RIP one two and four or whatever numbers you were.
I am having some issues with Pam this season, kind of I love her but dislike her at the same time. I understand how she feels but the petty jealousy crap has really got to stop. As Tara said, “love doesn’t have to be a competition between you and everyone else” but I still love her and she does have style!
I still have a love/hate relationship with her but I love her much better as a vampire and her bitchy lines are still epic!
TERRY/ARLENE AND EVERYONE ELSE I FORGOT
I know they are a part of the story and they can be entertaining but I wonder what purpose they serve. All the the same, Terry please don’t let your crazy army buddy kill you, you have children man!
So far I am loving that she is not acting pretty damn stupid as per usual, especially where Bill is concerned and I hope this much at least sticks! She is far more interesting when she is not stuck up Bill’s arsehole. I am glad she sussed out Ben real quick and I felt bad that her own parents tried to kill her, not matter their reasoning!
ERIC THE STRIKING VIKING
I am not sure there are enough words in the English Dictionary to describe the depth of my feelings for the Viking so pictures will have to do the talking.
Shew now I am exhausted, searching through tumblr for all those gifs and pictures but it was well worth it!
