PatchyMama - imagine how irritated *I* was. I NEVER read a series until they're all released - I waited years to read Harry Potter. I still haven't read Wheel of Time. So I'm online and I hear about Dead Until Dark and someone says there are only 7 books. (There were actually 8 already.) I'm a nitwit and think that means they're all done. Noooooo. So now I'm waiting for the next with everyone else.
"brain-damaged vampire" haha. He does make a great subplot, though. Who will have killed the were?
I wonder about her ending up with any shapeshifter, truthfully. I mean, she mentions here and there if she ends up with a vampire she won't be able to have kids, but if she ends up with a shapeshifter I wonder if her children will be able to change... thus would whoever she ends up with be secretly upset about that?
Now, about Tara. In the books she's such a small character - with the show at first I really liked her speaking up about stuff, but she's gotten a bit crazed. I wonder if they're going to get her to be more "normal" after the exorcism and then she can eventually get a real career, etc. Perhaps that won't happen until some time in the third season (based on the events in the second book)?
As far as the exorcism stuff goes... when I first saw it on True Blood I was just laughing in disbelief... then I started to think about it and wonder if this is Alan Ball's way of introducing other paranormal stuff besides the vampires and the allusion to Sam's shapeshifting. I know that the other demons actually have their own bodies but I wonder if they're all born or some are just possessing bodies. So perhaps her Mom really did have a demon and Tara does too. Make sense? Check your disbelief at the door, I guess.
