So I just finished watching True Blood S4 and I'm actually KIND OF MAD, lol. Idek you guys, I was pretty fucking pissed about Jesus kicking it, but at least I saw that coming from a mile away, and I could have gotten past it. (And the results of that may be... uh, interesting, to boot.) But TARA. WHAT THE FUCK. THAT WAS SO FUCKING RANDOM. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN FUCKING DO THAT. IT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE. GODDAMN.

Fuck you, True Blood writers. No srsly, fuck you. I've mostly been merely hilaritized by all your shock-factor camp writing, which is the reason I've watched the show to this point, but you've taken this shit too far. This was just completely random and pointless. Fuck.

(And I notice the characters you just killed off were two of the only three major poc AND queer characters on the cast, not to mention taking away the two most important ppl in the world to the remaining poc queer dude. Have you even killed off any other major non-villain characters? Oh, I mean, besides Tara's boyfriend from a previous season, who was GUESS WHAT ALSO A POC. Don't think I don't see what you did there.)

Idek if I want to watch the next season. I'm curious as to what happens to Lafayette, but lord knows they're just going to make him as miserable as possible, so I'm not sure there's any point.

In comparison, a clusterfuck might have been fun. For someone.

Bah.

IKR?

Apparently Tara's actress IS signed on for next season, but who knows in what capacity? I mean, Jesus's is too, but we already know he's a fucking ghost. Wouldn't that be the tastiest angst-muffin to shove down Lafayette's throat - his dead boyfriend and his dead cuz following him around.

Alternatively, she might end up a vampire or something. I don't think I'm too pleased with either option.

It's always a jolt when RL impacts plot, innit?

(I haven't kept up with the show since S1 (other than reading AV Club reviews now and again), so my opin isn't worth much)

I wonder what the status of contract negotiation had been at the point that those developments were finalized - like, were they written out in a slightly open-ended way to allow for both short term cliffhang and long term plot wriggle?
