Objective was to introduce not two
Having kicked off in spectacular fashion, True Bloodâ��s Watch The Dark Knight Rises Onlinefifth season continued apace this week with Authority Always Wins. The clue might be in the title, but apparently, Vampshave more problems with Authority than most. And not just because you canâ��t really tell a 200-year-old what to do.The second â��s most apparent objective was to introduce not two, but three new characters to the season. The two Chrises, while characters in their own right, also form part of the third new character â�� the oft-mentioned, but never before seen Authority. Itâ��s never easy joining a well-established show, but both Stargate alum Heyerdahl, as smiley torturer Dieter, and the late-of-SVU Meloni, as Roman, equipped themselves more than admirably. Meloni can always be relied upon for an effective menacing in a very expensive suit, and Heyerdahl is ever good value, whatever the character, as his excellent accent proves. With the Authority taking centre stage this season, the show needed some very noticeable presences, and with the two Chrises, Team True Blood have placed a clearly important story element in two pairs of very safe hands.Watch The Expendables 2 OnlineThe two Chrises were the backbone of the introduction of new character number three: the Authorityâ�� and it was juicy. Less of a government than a religious institution,
theAuthorityâ��s eerily familiar rites and rituals, (un)Holy Book and letâ��s face it, Vampire Inquisition were, if anything, completely unexpected. But then, no one expects the Vampire Inquisition. Having said that, the general theme of the appeared to be faith and its tenets,Watch Ted Onlineand the reveal of the religious nature of the council was fantastic. The full extent of Romanâ��s paranoia over an unseen faction completely against mainstreaming Â¬â�� essentially amounting to â��youâ��re either with us or against usâ�� â�� is also eerily familiar. And that wasnâ��t the only Republican-esque speech of the . Setting up the Authority as the all-powerful, all-paranoid, armed to the hilt, Conservative heart of the Vamp population is exactly what the show needed â�� one of the most interesting things about True Blood to begin with was the political implication of vamps coming out of the coffin â�� and itWatch Step Up 4 Revolution Online seems that weâ��re finally reaping those original seeds.Which, the smart money says, is exactly why the ex-reverend Newlin was turned. Anyone who can go on television and tell a religious nation that Jesus understands vampires because â��anyone whoâ��s been dead for three days knows where weâ��re coming fromâ�� definitely has Authority clearance. And balls.Catholic baiting vampires aside â�� Salome is a vamp? Gives a whole new meaning to the line â��Bring me the head of John the Baptistâ�� â�� a proto-Roman Church is the perfect choice for fictional Vamp religion. Itâ��s got tons of handy rituals and transubstantiation built in; thereâ��s that whole inquisition extravaganza, plus a complex hierarchy â�� throw in Russell, and itâ��ll be aPretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 12 hotbed of political machinations and such. And, we can but hope, absolutely no Faeries. Whoever the so-called Sanguinistas are, the Authority is clearly running scared. Why else would an allegedly all-knowing Authority ask Bill Compton if heâ��s against Mainstreaming? Have they never seen the show? Bill essentially wrote the book on fraternising with humans, but then, no self-respecting Inquisition takes anything for granted.The torture of Bill and Eric, apart from being a bit of a waste of time, gave their burgeoning bromance more time to settle â�� itâ��s incredibly telling that Eric didnâ��t sell Bill out at the first opportunity. Three years ago, Eric would have sold him out for the laugh; two years ago, for Sookie; this year, it didnâ��t even cross his mind. Itâ��s a beautiful thing.In other vamp-related news, Madam Pam finally got that backstory weâ��ve been waiting so long for. Weâ��ve always known Eric was her maker, but that she was a Madam back in early 20th century San Francisco is new information, and somehow completely fitting. She had an eye for an outfit even then. Clearly, the story has just begun â�� finding out how Eric did the deed will be nothing if not interesting...
