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?
