About B

Really, there is never enough Eric... I'm loyal to the Viking, no matter what. I will love him whether in Book, Show, and just because... my first thoughts are of him and I close my eyes to dream of him. As far as I'm concerned, the night can not get here soon enough.

  1. This was my 2nd least liked season of the show. (the 2nd season comes in first) I am rating these to the overall plots of the episodes. I am not just considering Eric scenes in this rating. There were so many disappointing things from season 5 for me, one being the fact that Roman(Chris M.) wasn’t in enough eppys and was killed off too soon. I didn’t care for Eric’s sister or his relationship with her, and other points too numerous to get into here.

  2. It was hard doing this season. My very least favorite season. The only episode I got the littlest bit excited about was the last when Bill dissolved. It was a short lived excitement however.

  3. The last episode is the ONLY one I really liked in season 5. Watching Bill turn into a pile of goo was a treat, even if he didn’t stay that way for long..(okay, the one where Sookie threw up on Alcide wasn’t a total loss),

  4. Just about the worst season of all. Very uneven. Poor use of Eric. Poor use of Roman. Interesting character development of Bill/Bilith. Last episode was the best with the death of Bill and the rise of Bilith plus Eric and Sookie together. You knew that it was all going off the rails and not in a good way with this season.

  5. I couldn’t stand Season 5,especially the Authority storyline.
    We really didn’t need to know about it,would have been better if we never knew
    about it~ it was better being kept in the shadows.
    We never would have had to put up with all of that “Lilith BS”
    The only good thing that came out of Season 5 was Nora Gainsborough.
    The only other thing was Eric Northman saving Sookie Stackhouse in
    the last episode!!

  6. damn it all to hell, i don’t know what i did but i voted somehow but didn’t do a thing to the little spreadsheet… ah hell i guess i will get over it
