Cajun Vampires and Were-spaniels

Recommended Posts

I saw episode 1 of Season 2 on demand last night because I worked Sunday. I liked it. It didnt blow me away but it was a solid start. I havent read the books so any predictions/comments I make are pure speculation on my part.

 

 

I think Mary Ann killed the fake exorsist woman

 

I think Jason will end up having sex with the preachers wife

 

Jason and Sookie will have conflict the deeper he falls into that church because of their staunch anti vamp stance

 

This was part of the sneak preview of next weeks episode . Lafayette asks Eric to make him a vampire. I can see that happening and I can see him as a vampire being an awesome character.

 

I wonder if all Sam did was rob Mary ann. Is that why she is that mad at him ?

 

 

I think it was a nice start to a really great show

They've deviated enough from the books that your predictions are as good as any.

 

For example, very minor spoiler from the books... Layfayette is an extremely minor character in the book and his character isn't developed. I'm guessing that once the actor took the character live that they felt they needed to keep it going since the actor is really good and very dynamic. It's be a complete waste to not let the character develop.

 

Also, Tara is a minor character in the books too, but I think that actress is the tits. She totally owns the screen.

 

As to your comments...

I think you're right about Mary Ann killing that woman. I bet your right about Jason hooking up with that church chick. According to the books, the church does wind up playing a significant role, but the storyline is already going in a different enough direction that you're probably right.

 

In the books and in myth lore, the creature that Mary Ann is, is rather unpredictable. Sam is a logical, direct line thinker, so he assumed the obvious, but she could be mad just cuz he took off after sex while she slept. I guess by "creature", I mean she's a woman and they're fookin' unpredictable :wacko:

So what are everyone's guesses about the nature of Mary Ann's talents? Doesn't appear to me to be a shape shifter like Sam, so what the heck is she?

The following is a spoiler from the books...

She's supposedly a Maenad and even the vampires are afraid of her. But she's a minor character in the book and the story line has already deviated.

Based on the ancient nature of her art, the Greek sculpture/bass relief near the pool, and the fact that she hadn't aged a day between the day Sam first met her and the present I'd say she's some sort of mythological character. Probably not a god; her interests are too worldly. But perhaps a lesser creature (like a titan, cyclops, medusa, etc).

 

If I had to guess what she is interested in its getting Tara (or herself) pregnant with some type of mythological offspring.

One meaningless thing I noticed from episode 1 was how unrealistic it was when Mary ann was riding young Sam. She was going up about 2 feet over his body. Either he shape shifted into John Holmes or their sex scene choreography was way off. Check it out next time you watch it

Are there witches in the books? I hope not but but I was thinking that Mary-Ann has some sort of major power so why not a witch?

book spoilers...

yup, witches, but up until about book 6-7 (I forget where I'm at), they're very minor characters. Why do you dislike witches?

Yes, but Mary-Ann is not a witch. Though Witches do play a major part in one of the books.

I guess I put that a little wrong. Not that I dislike them, I just don't think that I want them mixed into the show. :wacko: I don't know, kinda hard to explain why I feel this way.

Holy SPIT that was good. Wow, the writing seems to have taken a step up from last season. I like the cliffhanger.

That last scene was some high drama for sure . So far so good this year.

 

 

Do you think they turned Lafayette ?

 

 

Do you think the guy pursuing Tara has bad intentions ? Maryanne has Sam by the balls. I just wonder her motives. Is she going to just slowly torture him like this ? I wonder what the climax of that storyline will be .

 

I am not big on the Jason storyline so far. It does set up some good stuff down the road though since his sister is dating a Vampire.

 

Eric and his crew provide the violence or threat of violence. This show is great..

love the show, love the books! It looks to me like the show's creators/writers are intentionally going out of their way to develop minor characters from the books to allow themselves creative freedom while loosely following the original books' path. The good thing about this is that we don't neccesarily know what is going to happen, unlike in season 1.

+1 Maryanne was hardly in the books at all, and when she was her character was much different. I think they will stay true to the main story line, but they are definitely branching out. My only real concern is that because of all the stuff they are adding in, they are only likely to cover a book per season, and I fear that the show might be canceled for whatever reason before it they get all of the story told. I mean, at this pace, it will be another 7 years before they get through all the books currently written, and I assume there are more to come. If that is the case, how do you keep an actor playing a vampire from aging over 7 years?

I think they will, but maybe not just then. Layfayette as a vampire would be a GREAT sub-character. I think the actor bought himself a long-time role with the job he did last year.

 

 

My daughters were laughing thier butts off that the Eric/Bill confrontation was going down in "Forever 21".

 

 

I wonder if Bill HAS to kill that family? Some sort of secrecy pact the vampires have? His use of glamour on the child was very well done.

I'm sure he'll try to glamour them first, but if he kills them, that certainly the end of his and Sookie's relationship.

Do you think the Dad sexually molested the red head (I forget her name ) or just beat her ? I wasnt sure why Bill was so angry with him and looked like he was going to attack. Why do you (CR8) think he might have to kill them ?

I'm not sold on him abusing the kids, per se. He probably disciplined them as his church instructed. And I wouldn't rely on what that crazy chick said. And I think Bill was just pissed in general. He's kind of a tool.

That's right where my thoughts were. Remember, Bill seems to kill those that deserve to be killed. He sure looks crazy angry there at the end but the Sookie relationship thing looks like that might hold him back.

 

My guess, Bill kills Jessicas father. Sookie tells Bill to take a hike. Eric and his crew end up coming after Jason and Sookie goes crying back to Bill.

 

Oh and inbetween, we see lots of tits and lots of banging of the preachers wife and Tara.

True. The only indicator is when she said "It only hurts a little at first" but she is a little nutty. The dad did show his colors though because he already started yelling at her and grabbing her 2 minutes after he saw her. That scene was one of the firts times you ever saw Bill lay into Sookie too.

I almost forgot one of my favorite parts from last night was when Sookie was listening to Maryannes thoughts. That was pretty wild. I wonder if Maryanne knew she could do that

oops, I must've missed the line when she said that. So I think you're on the mark.
