I started out this season not exactly liking Salome.
I wanted her dead. However, as soon as I realized that she was supposed to be the Salome from the Bible, it really piqued my interest. To see someone who was so villianized over the death of John the Baptist, and then to watch her descend into the religious crazyfest, was an actual adventure. I think the idea, the belief of Lillith, was something that struck true to her. To have been there when Jesus walked the earth, to have seen what he influenced, and to have watched it grow. She must have wondered, “if a man could do that, what could a vampire do.” She saw the men of the bible, who many people hold in just as much regard as God himself; only she saw them as what they really were: men. I think it made perfect sense for her to believe that a woman was God. That she was chosen, to live through all of history, physically, for a reason, while these other men had not.
Sorry to see you go, Salome.
I liked your wardrobe almost as much as Pam’s.
