This shit is so political, y'all. There are tons of Obama-face videos on the site of Obamas* curb-stomping shifters and blowing up vampires and the like. It is disturbing.
Obamas*: "Death to soups! Long live the Dragon! Long live the Dragon!"
Jason: "Now there are dragons, too? Our world is full of wonder."
Andy: "No, it's a hamfisted reference to the KKK. Like Jane Bodehouse's uncle or cousin or father, or some combination thereof, was the Grand Dragon of the KKK. Cletus Bodehouse."
Jason: "Cletus, sure."
They beat up Joe Bob a great deal, because of their insecurities. It seems like there's a meaning or that the show is trying to say something, but I don't really know for sure. He will not give up the Dragon. Perhaps he is embarrassed.
Drivin' along in his car, listenin' to horrible music, bein' mopey like he just figured out that werewolves are trash even though he figures this out three times or more each and every season, Alcide remembers one time when his dad, Robert Patrick, put on a bunch of Ren Faire crap and yammered at them about being werewolves. This was before Debbie got to be super gross. Also before Alcide got super hot. Anyway, they all talked about how important the Pack is when you're a werewolf, because nobody else will deal with you because you are gross, and Alcide makes a decision and stops driving wherever he was going before, heading off to wherever he is going now.
Bud: "Ginger ale, Sookie? Regular flavor, not Oxycontin flavor. And thanks for asking about my colon cancer so I can say words like colon and bowel and tumor a bunch."
Sookie: "Neat, anyway have you ever thought that my parents were killed by vampires?"
Sookie: "Thanks for your time. Is there anything else I should know?"
Bud: "No, or else I would tell you."
Sookie: "Okay, I'm just going to obviously read your mind in an incredibly rude and invasive fash... Oh, you were telling the truth. My bad."
Sweetie Des Arts, the lady that Bud is cheating on his wife with, clobbers her over the head with a cast-iron skillet. She's a larger lady, a smoker of menthols. Enter the Dragon. What, did you think it was going to be a person on this show? Silly reader. That's why they showed her for a whole five seconds, six weeks ago! So it would seem organic. (In the books, she's a cook at Merlotte's with a legit grudge against specifically weres that makes her anti-supe. Of course, in the books the whole entire shifter-sniping scenario makes about fifty times more sense anyway -- far beyond the Sweetie part -- which is saying quite a lot, actually, because even in the books it makes very little sense.)
