‘True Blood’: 500 storylines and nothing on

via the Los Angeles Times
I realize I’m far from the first person to say this, but I’m starting to worry “True Blood” has spawned too many plots in its third season. Look at tonight: You’ve got Sookie heading off with her new pal, Alcide, to find Bill. But that’s only after she and Eric do a little werewolf detecting. You’ve got the adventures of Bill in his Mississippi prison with Lorena and Russell, but you also get to look into his past again. You’ve got Sam doing … something with his birth family. Tara continues to go through the stress of losing Eggs and attracting a new suitor. Arlene is pregnant again, but the baby is farther along than it should be if it’s Terry’s. Jason is trying to become a cop while still dealing with the leftover feelings from last season. Jessica continues to attempt to hide that dead body. And the vampire PI is just generally making everybody’s life miserable. And that’s to say nothing of plots that basically don’t turn up at all, like, say, Eric and Godric in World War II.

All of these storylines more or less shared the same hour, but they didn’t really have a lot in common, beyond just featuring characters who exist in the show’s universe. On most other shows with this large of an ensemble, the storylines are either pared down each week, or they all share some sort of thematic link. On “True Blood,” the writers just come up with a bunch of crazy stuff for the characters to do, then toss their scripts in the deep end.

Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the lastest episode of True Blood.

And if you have, may I offer you a a Brillo pad to scrub out your brain? ‘Cause I think I speak for fans everywhere when I say…ick!

After tonight’s stomach-churning, head-spinning (sorry) sexual twist (again, sorry)—the shocking scene that Stephen Moyer called a “watercooler moment for the next 20 years”—I’m sure many of you fellow fans don’t think you’ll never be able to look at a certain True Blood star the same again.

‘Vampire Diaries’ exclusive: Did David Anders survive?

by Michael Ausiello
Though in last month’s Vampire Diaries cliffhanger Elena’s doppelganger brutally attacked John, his portrayer, David Anders, confirms that he’ll be back for the season premiere. And beyond that?

“That’s up in the air right now,” he says. “They haven’t picked up [my] option yet. I feel like the character has a lot of legs and you can go in many different directions with him. But ultimately it’s [executive producer] Kevin Williamson’s choice.”

Although on paper the odds of John surviving would appear slim — the dude got his fingers chopped off and took a blade to the gut — Anders reminds fans, “People don’t always die from knife wounds.”

I have to admit, I was glad when Katerine stabbed John. He irritated me beyond belief. I understand they need people to keep coming in and stirring things up, but he’s the only character that I couldn’t stand. At least with the other antagonists I didn’t want to fast forward.

What did you think of the twist on True Blood? Would you like to see Lucifer return to Supernatural?
