Fangover Fangathon Day 5 Worst Storyline (via @SookieStack_SVM)
While there were some good parts about this story line, I think the Obama’s one was very ill thought out. I think it was a very poor attempt to give a nod to those of us who know the books. The good bits in it were when Luna turned into Sam and then went to find Sam, the moments there were just so funny and though it was a serious situation, I had tears rolling down my face with laughter. How the actors managed to keep a straight face when doing those scenes, I will never know. I also liked how this story line gave Martha a chance to redeem herself after what she did to Sam in the first episode. The scene where Luna sees Martha in hospital and is told that Emma ran to her was well played out by the two ladies. Martha came across as a very determined grandmother who would do anything to protect Emma.
The Obama’s “rescue of Hoyt” was in one word absurd. Hoyt just did not look right playing a member of this hate group. He was uncomfortable from the start and it seemed that all the reasons that we loved Hoyt in the previous seasons were just expected to be wiped away in a flash. I found it to be very unconvincing and there could have been better ways for Hoyt to deal with the hurt he was feeling after finding out about Jessica and Jason. This just seemed very unconvincing as a whole.
On the Subject of unconvincing, Bud as one of the leaders of the group definitely filled that description. Also To suddenly have a new character introduced as a Villain, sweetie des artes, without any real prior mention of her was also very remiss of the writers. This whole story line started off well but then seemed to get rushed in the desperate bid to find filler and also try and tie some things together; Hoyt’s hurt, Sookie and Jason’s Parent’s death and to give the season some tie to the books.
I was glad when the whole thing ended the way it did, cause there is no way this can be resurrected again.
