Go Ask Dallas: What does the note say that Sam's adopted father gave him?


Here it is:

Melinda and Joe Lee Mickens last know in Magnolia, Ark.

I'm sorry

Any other questions about last night episode?

This location is a nod to Charlaine as according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas :

Jean Charlaine Harris Schulz is a horror and mystery writer whose novels have a distinctive Southern setting and are often full of dark humor. Several of her “Southern Vampire” books have served as the basis for the HBO television series True Blood, which debuted in 2008. Her twenty-sixth novel, Dead and Gone, made its debut at the number one position of the New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list on May 21, 2009....She currently lives in Magnolia (Columbia County).

Obviously one of Sam's parents is a shifter, right? I hope Sam can be happy, he really is a great character, and sure is fond of Sookie. I am looking forward to him finding and meeting his real parents. Shoot, I don't know if I can wait nine months!

I'm so excited about Sam's storyline.

" Dallas " said...

I think both of his parents were shifters for him to be one -

this is an unusual twist from the books ..

How did Sam shift into a White Bull without one to "imprint"? It's not his go-to shift and I doubt they run around Bon Temps :)
I'm annoying everyone with this question...

" Dallas " said...

I explained last night on the show that I think that "imprinting" the image of the Brahma bull was part of the plan he and Bill hatched at Merlottes. He has books and internet in his office .
He doesn't have to see the image the second before he shifts he just has to have a recent imprint of the image in his mind.

He didn't have a lion image with him when he shifted to a lion in bk 8

Well i would think Sam looked at the
bull head Maryann had or he looked at a pic of one in his trailer or
the bar.And it looks like Sam may
go see CH.hahaha

Merri B. said...

Thanks, Dallas...true, he didn't need that in the books. I think it didn't translate as well on screen and something had to have transpired between Bill and Sam during their "planning" phase.

I think since the fly in the cell scene was more literal, this came across more confusing. I've read the books, but I was wondering from the series POV.

" Dallas " said...

yes and the owl in TB but Sam the shifter just needs to have an image in his mind HE DOES NOT have to have just seen the image.

Isn't CH from Magnolia? Do you think this note was a nod to her?

" Dallas " said...

Yes, I added the Encyclopedia of Ark entry

Great! Does it look like mEgnolia in the note to anyone else? Weird.
