*Spoliers for the True Blood season 3 finale*
After the current series ended, much of the commentary online argued that Sookie acted completely out of character when she dumped Talbot’s remains down the disposal at Fangtasia. Perhaps because Alan Ball has reduced Charlaine Harris’ spunky heroine to a helpless doormat for much of the programme’s run. But let’s review what Sookie has endured because of vampire King Russell. She was stalked by werewolves, suffered a home invasion twice, had a close-call brawl with Debbie Pelt, was abducted twice and nearly drained twice because of his designs upon her fae blood. So pardon me if I fail to regard an act of drain-clogging with the gelatinous remains of a 700 year-old lover unwarranted.
Why do folks balk at the comely blonde lashing out when they will stand all manner of bloodletting from the fanged and lupine men?
