True Blood: Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Last night's True Blood started as Bill & Eric's Excellent Adventure and ended up more like Bill & Eric's Bogus Journey.

So do we think Rev. Newlin and Russell are going to hook up now that they're both churchgoing men? #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
What would Ray Liotta say if he could see his little girl now, working as a tech geek for vampires? #CorrinaCorrinaJokes #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Kinda wish Lafayette WAS "gmail for dead bitches" though. That would be awesome. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
"Keep our heads down, our tits up, and the #TrueBlood flowing." Words to live by as always, Pam. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Movie idea: Bill and Eric play stoner college roommates. Wait, that is BASICALLY WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE SHOW RIGHT NOW! #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Oooh I think our earlier prediction might come true: Bud Dearborn is not to be trusted! I dig his style though. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Next summer I'm signing up for Werewolf Camp! #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Scott Foley you are boring me even while you are holding a gun. Stop scaring Arlene and go back to Felicity reruns! #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
"You use your dick for a compass. Me? I'm just a bad cop." Don't be so hard on yourself, Andy! Your naked pics got a lot of hits. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Bud was caught out on in his squaredancing boots! It's like getting Al Capone on tax evasion. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
How will their new law prevent sexless marriages? Sorry, but getting rid of vampires won't turn Bon Temps into a Cialis ad. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Love how much of a role #squaredancing is playing in this episode. "Grab your partner, kidnap a shifter! Now promenade on home." #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Salome is NOT dancing to distract Bill. That's the OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK! Really, it is! #BibleJokes #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
"Humans rule" was the best he could come up with? Too bad Bud had to go out on such a bad note. I liked his square-dancing boots! #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Russell and Steve, sittin in a tree. F-A-N-G-B-A-N-G-I-N-G! #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves. Alcide wears his on his car stereo. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Is a werewolf watching dog races like me watching the #Olympics? #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
If I was drinking every time someone kidnapped someone during tonight's #TrueBlood I would be WAAASTED by now.BitchMedia LiveTweet
This story went from "Bill & Eric's Excellent Adventure" to "Bill & Eric's Bogus Journey" pretty fast. #TrueBloodBitchMedia LiveTweet
Next week on #TrueBlood: Eric goes sleeveless, Alcide wears a shirt, and Tara & Pam rock jackets from the "Thriller" video. Tweet ya then!BitchMedia LiveTweet

Well, at least Steve and

Well, at least Steve and Russell happened. I seriously thought Momma Hoyt was going to end up being the Dragon, but then they introduced yet another new character. Seriously, a major villain should be someone we get to know over time, not a random person out of the blue. It would have been better if Bud were acting alone, as much as it pained me that they made him a bad guy in the first place. And the glimpse into Sweetie's past made me wince so hard. A fat woman is a villain because she lost a man and hates herself? Can't she just be evil because she enjoys it, or because she craves power? (A la Ursula the sea witch.)

Also, the Jessica/Hoyt/Jason storyline is awful. I had a really hard time watching episode 8 with Jessica's kidnapping, the rhetoric of the hate group, and Hoyt actually considering shooting her. Hoyt's behavior has been completely inexcusable and at this point I think he's beyond redemption. I'm confused as to what the writers want us to think. WIth Jessica's self-blame, it feels like we're supposed to be at least a little empathetic to Hoyt, which disgusts me. There shouldn't be any room to feel for a guy who would kill a woman for breaking up with him. Jessica has every right to sleep with and be otherwise intimate with whomever she wants; Hoyt's position is completely indefensible.

At this point, I feel like Eric is the only likable character left on the show. I mean, other than Russell and Steve, I guess, but they're bogged-down by a horrible mess of a story line.
