True Blood / Season - 3 Finale
Let's talk about Mr. Compton first. I honestly have no idea who's side he's on now. I was cheering for him at the beginning of True Blood, but now, I really don't know. Maybe I'm just confused, but I had no previous impressions that he was using Sookie for her blood. Eric shows up out of the blue and tells Sookie that Bill is using her, so Sookie freaks out at Bill. I understand her not wanting anything to do with any supernatural creatures right now, but Bill hasn't shown anything but love for her. Sometimes he did go a little too far trying to protect her, but even so, I don't think Sookie has any reason to not trust him. I believe Sookie just wants him to be human, but that ain't gonna happen babe. You're not even human yourself.
Tara gets a haircut! She looked good too. In my opinion, Tara's always been the weakest character. The writers never gave her anything important to do. Well I guess she was pretty important to the main plot last season, but I absolute hated the main plot, so that doesn't count. This year she was a prisoner of that vampire Franklin, who died pretty awesomely at the hands of Jason Stackhouse. The finale had a moment where Tara gets thinking about all the hell she's been through. I really didn't put it all together, but yeah, she's been through more than anybody could ever dream about. Her life since Sookie met Bill has been a living nightmare. Did it look like she was driving away at the end there? Maybe she's leaving town? Or even leaving the show?
Did Sam shoot his brother? I remember earlier this season they showed a weird flash-back type scene with Sam stealing money? or running a con-job? Something like that. So maybe he has it in him to shoot someone, even his douche-bag brother. He also blew up at everyone in the bar randomly an episode or two ago. That came out of nowhere. He spent some of his time in this episode just apologizing to people for the horrible things he said.
Who am I missing, oh yes... Hoyt and Jessica. I love these guys. They better live happily ever after, at least for a little while. Although, I guess that would be pretty boring. Hoyt's mom buys a rather large gun, no doubt to kill Jessica with. Crazy woman. I could see his mom trying to attack Jessica and Jessica accidentally-on-purpose killing Hoyt's mom! That would be crazy. Bill hasn't spent any time with Jessica at all, even though he turned her and is supposed to be training her. As Jessica has told Hoyt, she kills people and drinks their blood. Hoyt is okay with that though, as I think anybody would be if they knew a vampire as crazy-hot as Jessica.
All in all, this episode had a lot of ups and downs. I'm probably forgetting some of them but I literally just finished watching so these are my immediate thoughts on the episode. I'm not too excited for next season and I think it would have been better to leave us with the cliffhanger from last week. But meh, I'll keep watching to see what happens. I am getting rather sick of this fairy stuff though, almost as much as the lovey-dovey stuff that Sookie and Bill were going through for most of the show. Although the fairy stuff will stay, the Bill and Sookie lovey-dovey stuff seems to be gone. So I'll take the good with that bad.
Also, I'm not sure who this show is geared towards anymore. Age-groups, men and woman, I have no idea. It's all about fairy's and vampires falling in love, definitely for 13 year olds. Oh, but there's some semi-hardcore porn thrown in there, as well as drug use, strong language, and blood and gore. So ...I'm a little confused at the demographic for True Blood. I'll give the finale a 7/10. They seemed to try too hard with the shocking moments though. I think every character had one.
