Cannot wait for this awful season to end. Another like this, and the show is done. The books are popular because they revolve around Sookie. Her love life. Her special gifts. I was so disappointed with how they rendered the witch story arc in the TV show, compared to the books. This whole vampire authority BS is a distraction. Terry Bellefleur is such a background character in the books, and that is where he needs to retreat.
Now, admittedly, the most recent book in the Sookie Stackhouse series was also a complete waste of paper. But before that there was a lot of good material. Surely the TV writers can do better than a blood-soaked swimsuit model as the foundation for a series. Or not. I guess.
Return the focus to Sookie, and the show will recover. Otherwise it's doomed. This was just about my favorite show, and one of the reasons I subscribe to HBO. But if the next season starts out as poorly as this one, I won't even bother watching.
