Holy crap! Did anyone see that ending coming? A lot of extraneous happenings in this episode ... so we just have to bear through the clutter and hopefully be rewarded with a crazy, blood-filled ending to the season.
True Blood has always and probably will always have a socio-political agenda. For these "anti-vampire white trash," the face of Obama himself has become the "big bad" who is to be feared for the devastation and chaos he will surely leave in his wake.
I jinxed myself when I hoped that "True Blood" would keep up the pace that it presented ever so nicely last week. But there were still enough highlights and WTF moments to keep the episode afloat, if only barely.
Turning history's most pivotal players and storied icons into modern era styled super-beings cannot be a "one off" experience. There are far too many to choose from and far too many powers with which to pair them.
