You should enjoy the finale. It definitely raises the bar. With Marilyn Manson's interest in television, I wouldn't be surprised if he's pimping himself out. He's going to be acting in Sons of Anarchy, isn't he? Beautiful People was also used in the Witches of East End promos.

Entirely possible that he's hired by the Benefactor or working another angle completely. But we have little evidence either way at this point. I shouldn't have guessed.

I don't think Reynolds is "good" yet. I think we're learning more about what he knew about the beasts and that's adding some grey to the black and white. He was an obstacle to VinCat and did it in the wrong way. Now he's a little different. He's realizing not every beast is the same and it's because of love. I can buy that. Agreed with the humanity issue. Let's hope we're done with it because it was beat to death and absolutely ridiculous that when Cat said he could kill, humanity wasn't a problem, but when she was concerned, it was raised again. Inconsistent and hopefully over.

To me, the important characters are those that we started with and around whom the entire series has revolved. Sookie, Bill, Sam, Eric, Pam, Jason, Arlene, Andy and Jessica (as an extension of Bill and earlier lost Hoyt). I'm not sure about Lafayette right now because they've made him a caricature, but he would otherwise fit in this category.

I didn't think it fit with his character. It was like a completely new (and lame) dude was introduced. He wasn't flighty at all. He even made it a point that just because he was into tattoos didn't mean he was flighty and off kilter. The latest episode proved him to be the exact opposite.

The dinner and what came immediately before and after it were integral in making him a character I really enjoyed. He was grounding Brenna. They obviously decided to go in a different direction with her and now they're sacrificing Kieran.
I agree there are some things that required us to deny plausibility in the premiere. I'm hoping they did that to throw a lot out there and that it will be centered in coming episodes.

Yep. Looks like we're in for 13! I hope they don't drop any balls. There are a lot in the air!
What the hell is up with Utopia? First of all, there is a brilliant little scripted series in the UK called Utopia that will be starting its second season shortly and secondly, no stupid reality show should have so many damn nights in a row and third, it won't be as good as the scripted version called THE 100! Argh.
Who knew they could bring in another pain in the ass female. She's like that chick from The Following last year, this Rebecca. Absolutely nothing but trouble and not at all interesting. If you were inside a closed ecosystem and unsure of what it meant, would you set a giant fire? Is she soooo smart that she knows for certain the smoke won't remain and frak up their ecosystem? Steal their oxygen? And then they decide to use pesticides. Good lord. I can't use hairspray in a bathroom! Another thing I'm having a hard time with right now is that these freaks have only been locked up for two weeks (assuming they're changing the intro as time passes for god's sake) and they're completely at ease with their situation. Red is in love with Barbie who she's known a nanosecond. Joe's friend completely forgets she arrived with two mothers and has no one left. Nobody seems to even recall all they lost all of two weeks ago. The series is not redeeming itself from it's problems last year and making them worse. Somehow Big Jim seems like the least of our worries. Sadly, on Thursday nights when nothing else is on I feel compelled to catch up with this train wreck. Then I want to pound my head on the counter and scream "WHY???"
