Actually, it was only 44 minutes vs the usual 52 or 53- minute show. Doesn’t matter. Everyone watching noticed that the show was shorter. And True Blood boards were buzzing with angry fans. It’s not like HBO gave us a more detailed or longer preview.
Still, if we’d checked the HBO schedule, we would’ve seen the show was listed at 44 minutes. Next week’s show, “Frenzy,” looks like it’s back to the regular 53 minutes, according to the show schedule.
Hummm? Does this mean we get an extra long finale? The schedule shows the season 2 finale on Sept. 13 — “Beyond Here Lies Nothin” — will run 57 minutes. We’ll have to see if HBO says anything on Monday about the 44 minute episode.
Sunday’s episode — “New World in My View” — was packed with details:
- Evil Maryann is after Sam’s soul and the souls of everyone in town.
- Sookie’s fairy powers are beginning to show.
- Tara is out of her Maryann trance but her friends and family need to keep her away from Eggs and Maryanne.
- Maxine is bonkers out of her mind.
- We almost get to see Queen Sophie-Ann (After Bill rushes off to see if she can help defeat Maryann).
- And wasn’t Jason a kick tonight?

If you’re a Karen Marie Moning fan, you’re chomping at the bit for the next book in her Fae series with heroine Mac! DREAMFEVER is out in just a few more days — Aug. 18 — so we won’t have long to wait for find out if our sidhe-seer is powerful enough to beat the Lord Master. And will we figure out who or what Jericho Barrons is? And is the death-by-sex Fae prince V’lane good for Mac? Or just plain bad! (If you’ve never read this series, give it a go. CLICK HERE for info on the series.)
Here’s a synopsis of DREAMFEVER from Karen’s Web site: (Yes — it is a lot steamier than the other books!) I’ll be posting more on the book once it arrives! And let me know what you think of the book! (Post in comments!)
MacKayla Lane lies naked on the cold stone floor of a church, at the mercy of the erotic Fae master she once swore to kill. Far from home, unable to control her sexual hungers, MacKayla is now fully under the Lord Master’s spell. In the New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning’s stunning new novel, the walls between human and Fae worlds have come crashing down. And as Mac fights for survival on Dublin’s battle-scarred streets, she will embark on the darkest-and most erotically charged-adventure of her life.
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister’s murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac’s every thought-and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
As the enigmatic Jericho Barrons and the sensual Fae prince V’lane vie for her body and soul, as she rallies the sidhe-seers to fight an impossible battle, and the power of the Dark Book weaves its annihilating path through the city, Mac’s greatest enemy delivers a final challenge…
It’s an invitation Mac cannot refuse, one that sends her racing home to Georgia, where an even darker threat awaits. With her parents missing and the lives of her loved ones under siege, Mac is about to come face-to-face with a soul-shattering truth-about herself, and about the world she thought she knew.
