Well, on a show that is as over the top as anything on TV, this was maybe the most over the top episode yet. Parts of it almost seemed like a season finale...with the fast pace and tons of action. Loved it. As trojanchick said, it seems like we're building toward some huge, epic confrontation.

Also, I'll put this in the spoiler tag, although I'm sure some of you already have heard about this...

 
I know who's playing the "Queen", and I couldn't be more excited about it. Great casting choice, and I can't wait to see what they do with the character.

TRUE BLOOD BEST HBO RATINGS SINCE THE SOPRANOS

The off-kilter vampire series True Blood is drawing audiences to HBO the likes of which the pay-TV network hasn't seen since the days of The Sopranos. Sunday's episode averaged 5.3 million viewers, the largest audience HBO has drawn for a scripted series since April 2004, excluding The Sopranos runs. HBO said that when additional airings of the show were included, plus DVR viewing and HBO On Demand, the True Blood episode actually drew 11.6 million.

I've started watching the second season - good so far.

The fact that Bill owns a Wii cracks me up, that and when he gives the recycling speech to Jessica.

lol, yes. Both of those scenes are great. My favorite line is when Eric asks why Bill doesn't return his texts, and Bill responds something like, "I do not like typing on the number bad." I love how he's always so serious.

Last night I caught up and am now on REAL TIME with this show. I didn't think I'd like anything but Anna Paquin, but the show is awesome.

two weeks until the finale

this episode - could have been edited down to 30 minutes

this season - could have been edited down to half the episodes

Coincidence that the ratings soared after I started watching? I don't think so. That's how fucking powerful I am. You want to stop watching, GAF, go ahead. With 11.6M people, we won't miss you. Goddamn teenage dirtbag.

Alright, Evan Rachel Wood as The Queen is probably the hottest thing ever on the show this side of Lafayette.

But other than that, yeah, this most recent episode didn't propel the plot much further at all. We're not really any closer to the big showdown than we were two episodes ago. Still awesome, though. Eric can fly.

And Evan Rachel Wood.

YAHTZEE!

Yeah. All those episodes where Bill would tell Sookie "I have to leave tonight" for one thing or another and here it is the end of season 2 and we're just now finding out exactly the means by which a vampire "leaves tonight."

I'm really sick of the Maryann plot line and all the black-eyed peeps. Let's wrap this thing up in the season finale and get a new plot line going next season that involves serious amounts of Lafayette and vampires and vampire blood and shape-shifting Sam and fangbanging Jason. That's pretty much all I care about at this point. Back to the season 1 basics only better, please.

I still like Maryann A LOT! Yes, that plotline does need to get resolved soon, but I'm still digging it and I like how they plotted out Bon Temp's downward spiral under her control over the whole season. It probably could've been shortened by a couple episodes, but I still liked it.

What/who I no longer like is Bill. His constant one-note anger and over-seriousness has just really gotten to me. I liked him first season, but I really cannot stand him this season. Everytime I see that super serious face of his onscreen, I just get He has no humor in him at all.

I agree, I am totally devoted to team Eric now

Bill should not be in the same frame with Eric.

Each time it happens his stock goes down a bit.

I like how they left Layfette in the series...he gets killed off in the book...he's such a great character.
As for Eric....oh just you all wait! Yum-E!
