I'm wicked pissed that I won't be able to watch the show for two whole weeks. Seeing as I don't want to watch only one episode, if I stockpile three eps, that'll be five weeks! Summer will be practically over by then!
I love that the show has rich secondary characters. Lafayette still remains one of my favs (why hasn't the man been nominated for an Emmy or Golden Globe?), and I enjoy ping-ponging between liking and disliking Tara.
Some people have complained about Franklin pulling the mojo on her to get into Sookie's house. I didn't mind. Bill did the same thing to Jessica's little sister last season, and it'd be cute if this became a sort of running joke. Sookie gives Tara the run of Gran's house and inevitably the shit blows up.
I had to tolerate a whole series run of Losties getting guns taking away from them or missing targets entirely (Sayid lost a tremendous amount of cred when he couldn't kill Ben- 'cause double-taps are hard- and Sawyer might as well have been firing a rubber chicken). What I'm saying is that zombified Tara two seasons in a row doesn't bother me. Anything to get her to stop bitching about Eggs.
Jessica's penance of sleeping with the dead guy was absolutely brilliant. His lasts words were "You're a whore." Her agreement with him, a nail on the coffin she pounds in herself, was heartbreaking. I wonder if she and Hoyt will get back together and if this issue- she's a murderer and how do you love a murderer- will be addressed.
Sam's family is too awful on so many levels. Joe Lee's underwear- those dingy, disgusting drawers- make me cringe. There's been rumors that he might be molesting the younger brother, but I don't agree. I do think he's making Tommy fight in dogfights. I don't like this storyline- but can't decide if it's a good dislike. The family is gross and pathetic, and has the makings of a shit ton of cruelty. They also make me uncomfortable. But that ties into the show's main conceit. It's right there in the opening shots: hello cheeky panties, hello KKK cherub, hello bump and grind, hello maggot-ridden roadkill.
I want Lorena to hurry up and get dead. The final scene of the third ep was heeee-larious and effed up to a mammoth degree. I was a little confused if they were actually having sex (that could've been a little clearer), but when Bill decides to twist like he did last summer and she tells him she loves him, my insides recoiled (definitely in a good way). She's a sick dog and needs someone to go Atticus Finch on her ass.
Two weeks, two whole weeks...I might have to watch the eps again to assuage the gnawing in my heart.
