'True Blood' burning questions: Can we have more Jessica, please?
Image Credit: John P. Johnson/HBOLast night’s True Blood was probably the best of the season — which is now at its halfway point. I get that the show’s building dramatic tension and whatnot, but I still feel like all the wrong things are being emphasized. Action = Good! Talking about dog fighting = Sorry, I slipped into a coma. Here are my burning questions:
When is Jessica going to get a bigger storyline?
I’m tired of her being relegated to second-redhead at Merlotte’s. This is a travesty. Jessica is far, far more interesting than Tommy, and maybe through her newbie eyes we could learn a little Vamp Politics 101? Like if everyone knows the Vampire King of Mississippi is gay, what kind of stock might they put in his power-play marriage to the Vampire Queen of Over-Acting Louisiana?
Will other kinds of mythical creatures come “out” the way vampires have?
Or have they already? We have shape-shifters, werewolves, vamps, and a few other non-human entities. Why are vampires the only organized ones? Get a message board going, you guys.
When will Lafayette catch a freaking break already?
Please, show, give me one couple — just one couple! — to feel good about.
What about you, PopWatchers? What are your burning questions about this season of True Blood? Last week a lot of you said you were digging the story about Sam’s family. Are you still?
Sookie, Bill, Eric, Lafayette, Sam and the other residents Bon Temps deal with vampires, werewolves, fairies, and shape-shifters—not to mention romance and drama
