*I like Eric. I like Bill. I continue my trend of not comparing one vampire to the other, and I think it's the way to go on this show. Both are interesting and compelling - one likes to cry more than the other, and one looks great in a blue shirt. Curiously, I don't want to sleep with either of them. I do, however, want Alcide shirtless and chained to my side like a loyal-but-occasionally-angry puppy.
*I have a hell of a time reconciling Eric's continuing love for his dead human family with the fact that he finds teacup humans delicious
. Maybe I'm still too Jossian in my view of the nature of vampires, but how can Eric have sufficiently detached himself from humans enough to feed on kids but still retain enough love for his dead parents and sister to step right into a vat of shit with the King of Lousiana, risk his progeny and his own life, as well as his club, in order to avenge their deaths, which occured a thousand years ago?
*I do love him and Pam together, and I hope we get to see the same kind of dedication between Jessica and Bill next season. And, even though I know it's not in the cards, a lot less of crybaby!spunky!sassy!annoying!Sookie.
