Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere The vamps over at the Authority aren’t the only ones causing a superb amount of trouble this week. Pam’s continued remaking of the newly kick-ass Tara in her own image remains a joy to behold. Eric clearly taught Pam well, and she’s fast becoming the best sire in the history of forced-siring. It’s also fantastic for Tara, who finally gets something fun to do – in the form of feasting on an old school frenemy – after four years of horror. As has been said many times in these reviews, the only way this gets better is if the duo becomes a trio and Jess is allowed to join the gang. Because, God knows, she clearly could use the help. She’s incredibly lucky that Hoyt is who he is... Which is handy, because so far, being who he is has been anything but lucky for Hoyt. Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere That poor boy just cannot catch a break!
With the Point Break Vigilante gang pretty much decimated, Sam and Luna’s quest to destroy them must surely be at an end; added to what appears to be the end of the Laf hoodoo nonsense in the lowest-key way possible, and a solution to the fire monster rubbish in sight, these storylines have a sudden whiff of padding about them; the séance – while it’s lovely to see Laf back to his abrasive self – definitely didn’t sit well; the same could be said for the abrupt and almost completely silent end to the Don Barolo/Jesus’ Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere head story. Having said that, let’s just be thankful they’re pretty much out of the way.
With Bill’s ‘evolution’, Eric’s mission, Sam’s investigation, and now Alcide’s return to the were-side, for the first time in almost five years, Sookie is completely and totally man-free. Which is an interesting turn of events – given her propensity for flitting between any one of three supes at any one time, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was against the natural laws of the -verse for the girl to be single. How long she’ll stay that way is anyone’s guess, but wouldn’t it be lovely if, Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere for once, Sookie rescued herself from the clutches of whatever is coming her way next? Just a thought...
Admittedly, Sookie could look to the Faeries for help, but considering that they’re bloody useless – not much point turning up after the parents are dead – their presence would appear to be mostly tactical. Clearly, giving Sookie some much needed insction in the uses of light magic and whatnot is about all their good for. After that, if they could just leave as quickly and quietly as possible, Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere we’d really appreciate it.
So, with four s to go, the Vamps have once again the only show in town. Whether in the form of Sanguinistas, Pam and Tara, Eric and Bill and even the mysterious parent-killer, the fangs are back in charge of the -verse. Which after all, is exactly as it should be. Wolves, Faeries, shifters, whatever, it’s the vamps that we came for, and that’s why we stick around. With so many possible vamp combinations and outcomes, the next four s will be nothing if not interesting. Will the Sanguinistas prevail? Will Eric be able to stop them? Will the Ex-Rev Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Steve end up sharing a jar with Talbot? Will the parent-killing fang make good on his threat? The answers to these questions and many more are coming our way in a veritable fangfest in the next few weeks – as hopefully, will a brand new Russell breakdown. It’s been way too long since he was off the leash...
Read Emma's review of last week's , In The Beginning, here. Well, tonight's of felt about as scattered as last week's, however "Somebody That I Used to Know" did manage to deliver a number of more entertaining, less draggy scenes than last week's , and I think Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere we have a better idea of where things are going for the series on a number of plot-points, most of which seem unrelated to each other.
I think that's one of the bigger issues of this . It doesn't really feel like a lot of what's going on connects much. In one area, we have the Authority and Lilith. In another, Tara's a vampire. And then there's Terry's smoke-monster drama. Alcide's having wolf issues. Sam's having shifter issues, which is loosely related to Hoyt's issues. But maybe things are coming together, because, after Lafeyette spent an with his mouth sewn shut, he's now using his Jesus-acquired powers to help Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Terry. And as mentioned, Hoyt joining the sup-haters did connect him with Sam and Luna's issues. And their stuff is kind of connected to Alcide's.
Maybe because we're in the middle part of the , it's harder to see where this mess of a web connects, but those connections do appear to be forming. Sookie and Jason appear to be firmly allied right now, as their sibling status is proving to be pretty relevant for the first time in a while. Jason helped Sookie embrace her gifts enough to stop trying to zap her powers away, and then the two visited with the fairies to Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere see about figuring out who killed their parents. In their efforts to tape into mother nature and connect with her memories, Sookie managed to tap into the mind of a vampire called Warlow, whom Claudine apparently knows, and who killed the Stackhouses. Warlow found an old bandaid in the backseat of their car (gross) so we can assume he knows there's a little girl (now grown) out there with the same blood as her mother's. In other words, sooner or later, Warlow's probably going to be knocking on Sookie's door. Let's hope she has enough lightning in her to fight him off. Downton Abbey Season 3 Episode 1 Premiere Interesting factoid from this arc. Albert Einstein was apparently a halfling like Sookie.
