So, yeah, this vampire-human war as metaphor for civil rights theme has gotten beyond heavy handed on True Blood, hasn't it? Remember when the battle was all about Jason going to sleepaway camp with Reverend Steve Newlin and his hot wife? But to make up for it, this week's episode did give us a few skin-crawling scenes that it is our pleasure to relive with you right now...
1. Vampires are the new ... Ooof. The 1998 dragging death of James Byrd Jr. in Texas was shocking to anyone who thought racial brutality was a thing of the past, and even to those who knew it wasn't. We're not so sure if that kind of horrific event needs to be co-opted by an HBO drama. It's just, well, not fun.
3. Eric fights for the whooping crane. OK, this is not really WTF, but we needed to take a moment to laugh at Alexander Skarsgard's attempt to look meek and nerdy.
