Looking forward to more of The Adventures of Bill and Eric. And I hate to say it, but I'm interested in where the show goes with vampire Tara.

And I want more boobies and less bare man-ass.

If they keep Tara the way she was in this episode, she might actually be tolerable.

Honestly speaking, the Bill and Eric story seems like it's going to be the only interesting thing this season will have. Everything else in this one bored me to tears.

I liked learning about Eric and Pam's backstory and hope they fill in even more of that. They are both such great characters.

Newlin is a fun vampire. I winced at the idea at first but so far, I like it.

And I need a gif of Eric in the hat licking his fingers real real bad. Geezus. Come on internet, don't let down.

This was a pretty awesome episode. Better than any from last season.

I think Tara will learn to like being a vampire/never having to be a victim again. I'm the rare breed that actually likes her, so I'm interested.

Another Season begins and another season where I hate myself for watching this.

That's not saying much, of course...but yes, better than last season and certainly better than last week...although I wish they'd dump the stupid werewolf subplot.

I'm not crazy about the Tara storyline either, but I did like the irony that even as a vampire, she's got a string of bad luck/suffering (running into that spray on the porch when she ran off).

While I am not a fan of Tara, I do find what has happened to her interesting. Not only is she what she hates most, she was sired by the one she seems to also detest most. Pretty much the ultimate mockery for someone like her, so vowing to "never forgive" them makes sense.

I could not give a flip about Terry's war story. Ugh.

My wife surprised me last night. When Tara perched up on the sink she blurted out

"SHE OWLING!"

That was the highlight of the episode for me. This isn't 2nd season of Hero's bad, but it's going downhill fast.

That's the one thing I completely check out on.

That was Frank from Raising Hope as the Stakehouse clerk, right? If so that's the second RH cast member to appear this season so far. Hope we get more.

I'm hoping that Tara's mom returns just to see her reaction to the new Tara.

It was good to see Russell officially back, though still in a weakened state. I just hope they use him for something good, and not a plot device. If they just use him for a cheap ploy then I will quit watching.

Rumors are that Russel is a "changed vamp," which is going to make it a lot less easy for Bill to kill him (although Eric will have no moral qualms, I'm sure).

Yep. I love the Wolf Mom. The way she plays her is very deep.

I'm hoping that Tara's mom returns just to see her reaction to the new Tara.
That would be very interesting.

I like the "Lilith" and "Vampire bible" angle.

I can't believe it took me almost three seasons to realize that Alcide is played by the same guy who played Flash Thompson in Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3. I need new glasses.

Umm, he was Brooke's Boyfriend on One Tree Hill! That's how I know him.

What's this Spider-Man you speak of?

Same here. I like when they get into the mythology.

When Tara said "I will never forgive you for this," the first thing I thought was... yeah you will.

I may have turned a corner on my Tara hating. If they continue to keep her from talking, I might begin to like her.
