Brown Folks Cain’t Never Have Nothin’! Especially not in the season finale! We’ve been waiting for the shoe to drop all season, but they ended up dropping a crate from Zappos on us. Kendra, Joe, Alea, Amber, and Jordan joined me to parse out our feelings – and you may want to grab a snack and clear out some time. Just when you thought they couldn’t top the fleeing from the plantation scene…
Kendra: oh sweet, we get some nudity this ep.
Joseph: I got my hot chocolate, my Luray Caverns fudge and I’m ready to bitch!
Latoya: You know, this cut to Marnie!Laffy was a bit anticlimatic for the season ender.
Alea: Yes. Too many damn storylines this season. Andy and the Faerie; Sam and Luna playing house–the writers are all over the place.
Jordan: They could do a whole season on the stuff from this season on
Latoya: We aren’t gonna finish everyone
Kendra: Oh, can we take bets now on whether the Were Panthers will be back? Because… where on earth did that thread even go?
Latoya: Hmm. That’s tough to call. Next season?
Amber: Right. I think Ball is hoping we forgot about HotShot and is waiting to hit us over the head with something next season. After all that build up, that storyline can’t just be over…right?
Alea: Probably, but I feel like its expiration date will have passed by then. There’s way more interesting stuff going on.
Latoya: You know? there’s the Pam-Eric split; the Alcide fall out; the BilEkie drama, Jason-Jessica.
Kendra: Tara’s an Atheist!
Alea: Score one for non-Christian black folks.
Kendra: Tara’s… back? well, for once she might be safer with Sook than Laffy.
Latoya: Look Ball, I would have appreciated this nice touching coffee scene about three seasons ago.
Jordan: The loyal black sidekick…always there to talk to you about your problems over coffee.
Amber: Loyalty is an understatement. We’re right back where we started with these two, as if no serious drama just went down.
Latoya: “[Gran] did have all the sense in the family.” Damn Tara, burn.
Alea: She speaks the truth.
Kendra: “Be good to each other.” Advice more for Sookie than Tara…
Jordan: Ummmm… and just like that we’re all good
Alea: Tara’s magical, so she has the ability to fix any problem through humor, down home wisdom, and self-sacrifice.
Latoya: Never thought I’d say this, but I miss attitude Tara.
Amber: @ Alea @Jordan Mammy anyone?
Latoya: This is the stangest friendship ever.
Kendra: Sam does clean up nice. (But his dress shirt has pockets on both sides >.>)
Alea: [Totally. I love that his idea of formal funeral wear is adding a black tie and sport coat to the type of shirt he wears every single day.]
Amber: Complete with cowboys boots and a gold plated belt buckle. He pulled out the big guns for this special occasion. Lol.
Latoya: I love watching Sam trying to process Ms. Thortenberry’s confessions
Alea: “Nobody taught Tommy how to love somebody without hurting them” — combined with Thortenberry’s litany of shit-Tommy-stole, that’s a pretty apposite eulogy, right there.
Jordan: I think all Sam does are strange friendships
Alea: Absolutely, Jordan.
Joseph: thats probably cause its a western shirt (fashion correspondent strikes again!)
Latoya: Pork Rind Casserole just sounds all kinda nasty.
Amber: Agreed–like a crunchy soggy mess. * shudder *
Alea: I do not imagine her to be a very good cook.
Alea: Dear god. Which is worse — no family or Mama T?
Joseph: all her dishes sound (and look) unpleasantly mushy
Alea: That’s a casserole for you, a genre of food around which I still have difficulty wrapping my mind.
Latoya: So the Skinwalker moment for Luna and Sam has passed I suppose.
Kendra: Oooh, I like the end of that scene. I think Sam may have a new family, Mama Thortenberry. Read the Post Ain’t No Sunshine: True Blood Season Finale
