The Lucy Lawless character is Skye’s mom. Yes. Even though Isabelle Hartley – OSTENSIBLY – was killed in the car crash at the end of the episode. I’m still calling it.
The Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear shows were an eclectic mess of WHAAAAAT? as designers shook out their anxieties and tried to settle on a new vision to bring humanity forward into the next half of the decade. For Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear, they’ve settled on a collective vision. SO. MUCH. BOHO.

One night, we went to karaoke and met a woman with a Serenity tattoo and a Captain America t-shirt. I was also wearing a Captain America shirt, so naturally, we chest bumped (as you do when you meet another geek in the wild) and merged our groups for the rest of the night. At the end, we were invited to a charity costume ball being run by one of her friends. It was way the hell out in the suburbs, but hey! Geeks! Costumes! Tasty adult beverages! Of course we’d go! How could we not? These are our people! Right?

So long, Awesome Pam. You were the best thing about True Blood. I’m disappointed you never got the spin-off series you so richly deserved, but it’ll always be there in my dreams.
So, as far as True Blood goes, that was a satisfying ending for Sookie’s character. After all this time, Sookie finally gained a sense of self. And once she asserted herself, Bill no longer had any control over her. Sookie walked out of that graveyard her own person.
In the end, the message was that if we truly love The Doctor, we’ll always be there for him no matter what face he’s wearing. And while I can’t completely get behind that statement – I am, after all, a champion 10th Doctor Hater – I understand the sentiment.
At least we can leave the True Blood-verse secure in the knowledge that Jessica and Hoyt are back together and Ginger -AT LONG LAST – finally got to bang Eric.
