True Blood Season 2 : Godric

There was a time when all teenie-boppers were googly eyed and gaga-ing over Edward Cullen, I was head over heels for Bill Compton. Being the fan that I am of vampires and their dark, twisted and troubled souls (except for the ones in 30 Days of Night. Those kind gave me nightmares for 4 days after watching it. Had to practically sleep with the lights on), you could say I was disappointed with how Edward was portrayed by Robert Pattinson. I love Edward Cullen in the book but somehow I wasn't feeling the same way about the one in the movie. I guess what I had in mind and how I pictured him isn't the same as what the director had in mind. David Boreanaz of Angel was always the perfect vamp for me. Which was later replaced by Mick St John from Moonlight. Which was then replaced by Bill Compton from True Blood. And now (as sad as I am about this fact), he is replaced by Godric, also from True Blood.

When I bought the 2nd season DVD of True Blood on Sunday afternoon, I promised myself not to watch it until all of my work is done (which would be by the middle of November). I even considered having my mom hide the DVD in some place I don't know (yes, it has happened before. I'm known to have very low self-restraint) but not before I have a sneak peek of it. I have to know what happens to Bill and Sookie...

So I slid the DVD in the player, remote in hand and started fast forwarding from one scene to another. Just a preview, I remind myself. Okay, I see Bill and Sookie (Yeay, they're still together!). Fast-forward. Sam is afraid of a woman named Maryann(I wonder why?). Fast-forward. Eric is hotter now (I'm sure Cia is excited about this). Again, fast-forward. Wait, why is Lorena back in the picture? More fast forwarding. What??!! Eric nak Sookie? Mana boleh!!! Oh my God, Sookie kena attack!! (Bill, you've to help her!!). Fast-forward again. Wait, who's this guy who saved Sookie? Godric? (Siapa pulak Godric ni??) A little of rewinding. Oh, Eric's maker. Fast-forward balik. A 2000 yrs old vampire in a body of a teenager. Powerful (Apparently all other vampires bow to him). Kind (He's against all this bloodshed). Wise (He's very philosophical for someone who's in a teenager body). Troubled (classic tortured soul that looks like he's heaving a tremendous problem in his chest). And my, my, my...aren't you the David Archuleta look-alike (I could go on and on describing him). The best part, he has an accent! Godric, you are officially my new favourite vampire. Accent trumps everything, even Bill.

And with that, I put down the remote and watched the whole scene involving Godric. So much for the sneak preview. Then when the scene is over, I fast-forwarded to another scene with Godric in it. Up to the scene where he plans to kill himself (What?? Get off from that roof Godric!!) And when the sun rose, he stood there and burnt to death. (Why? Why? They should've killed Eric!!)

Godric only lasted 4 episodes. And with that I switched off the DVD player. Texted Cia to mourn over the death of Godric (she has finished watching the whole 2nd season). I'm not even sure I'm looking forward to watch the whole DVD come this November. *Sighs* Why did they have to kill Godric??!!

This just in : Because the character (Godric) proved to be popular among viewers (see, I told you), the creator of the show hinted the possibility of Allen Hyde returning as Godric in the near future.

*Nak beli the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Most bookstores sell them separately and there are 10 books altogether. Went to KLCC last week and saw the box-set at Kinokuniya. Wajibla nak beli but it's RM 300!! Mane nak cari duit??? I think I need to brush up my begging skills with my mom. Yeah right! Like THAT'll ever happen*
Spoiler ahead : The books said Sookie ends up with Eric and they're married. *Haiyoo*
