I like the way True Blood is allowing us to see the lives of the other characters in Bon Temps, stuff we couldn't see with a first-person POV. Episode 6 kind of threw me, though, in that Sookie wakes up the day after her grandmother's funeral and THAT is when she goes to Bill for some sex and neck-biting? It threw me in the book too though.
Lafayette is a MUCH more likeable character in the show.
Referring to the white-ed out part, it didn't seem that weird for me. Her being so hyper-happy afterwards was a little weird, but I'm attributing that to the vamp sex doing some weird stuff with her hormone levels because otherwise I think she's still be dealing with her grandmother's/mother figure's death
. I did think it was weird that no one brought up the passing though to say it was odd that she was like that.
