I thought I might as well follow up the resurrection of the blog with another post. I’ve been watching True Blood from the beginning, and even though I wasn’t overly excited by the first season, I looked forward to the second one. For the most part, it did not disappoint. Spoilers ahead.
The first 6-7 episodes were very entertaining, mainly because of the “The Fellowship of the Sun” storyline and Eric Northman’s tie-in into it, i.e. him trying to locate his maker. However, the ending of that storyline was rather disappointing. Godric wasn’t nearly as aweinspiring or interesting as I had hoped, even though it was cool to see a Danish actor on an HBO show. Finding out that the fellowship didn’t really pose any threat was also a bit of a let down, and instead we had to follow the rather tame Maryann-storyline as the season’s finale.
Speaking of which, this storyline never really appealed to me, and neither did the ending. If all it took to kill Maryann was stabbing her in the chest, then why hadn’t they tried to do that before? The twist was also extremely predictable. In the last few scenes of the season it was also painstakingly obvious that the show’s creators had to come up with some cliffhangers, and most of them were idiotic. First of all, Jessica fanging some dude instead of talking to Hoyt was dumb and extremely annoying, since their relationship was one of the season’s best. Eggs dying was just as stupid, yes, he was holding a knife, but will you fucking relax, Jason? Jeez. Then we have Bill being kidnapped, I didn’t really care since Bill and Sookie’s relationship has been annoying me the entire season. Sam’s ending was a bit interesting, but honestly I just want to see scenes with Eric being a bad ass.
