Becca Wilcott 's Recap: True Blood, season 3, episode 7 – ‘Hitting The Ground’

Well,  thanks to the wonderful Becca for the big shout out in her column today in the National Post ( Canada)  ...
Dallas is sure proud to have such a wonderful team for Talk Blood Radio !

Every few weeks I appear as a guest on Talk Blood Radio (www.blogtalkradio.com/true-blood-in-dallas), hosted by the lovely Dallas of Loving True Blood in Dallas (www.lovingtruebloodindallas.com), one of the most prolific fan run fan sites for True Blood and The Sookie Stackhouse Novels. If you haven’t tuned in, treat yourself. It runs 9:30 pm CST after each episode airs, and Dallas’s guests include a host of professional bloggers, national columnists, and die-hard fans. It’s fast-paced, energetic, and always a blast.

All to say, that I was one of Dallas’s guests this past Sunday evening, so you can hear me wax poetic about the avalanche that was “Hitting the Ground.” What will emerge from this episode is bound to be a tightly-packed snowball gaining momentum with each of the remaining five episodes, not to mention dismembered body parts, starting with the sinewy remains of Lorena and the Magister’s head. Let’s take a moment. I adored the Magister, in part, because as a fan also of Damages and Big Love, Zeljko Ivanek is unsurpassed in his role as The Man of Code. And I hadn’t yet grown tired of remarking how great Lorena was this season. So while I wasn’t surprised by her demise, I’ll miss her deeply. (And the chance to meet her maker. Maybe if we write to Santa Ball?) Mariana Klaveno was given a lot to work with this season. Rewatching “I Got a Right to Sing the Blues,” I’m still taken by the delivery of her threat to wear Sookie’s rib cage as a hat, spinning on her heel as she walks out the door to torture Bill. Actors just don’t get to say and do those things every day. At least she went out with the fury of a chocolate fountain at a company holiday party. (Still don’t want to believe she’s gone for good. We gotta see the woman when she still had the light in her eyes, don’t we?)
