The sour love story between Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) also curdled further, with Hoyt given the opportunity to stake his ex-girlfriend by the hate-group he's joined, and didn't even resolve with a satisfying breakthrough. Hoyt still hates her guts, but isn't a killer. Let's gloss over why Bill (Stephen Moyer) wasn't aware of Jessica's predicament, as her maker.
Does anyone care about the local wolf pack's search for a packmaster yet? I didn't think so. But Alcide (Joseph Manganiello) is proving to be a very disappointing contender against a rival twice his age and with half the muscles.
|Like namesake Sam Beckett before him... oh, boy.|
Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) pleased Tara (Rutina Wesley) by helping her get revenge on a racist classmate with a privileged lifestyle, by brainwashing her into becoming Tara's obedient blood slave in Fangtasia's dungeon. I'm not sure what the point of Tara's story is this year, really. That being a vampire isn't so bad, because you can make a mean cocktail with your super-shaking forearm, learn a supposedly sexy pole dance, and feed on school bullies you'd long forgotten about?
Oh, and actor Stephen Moyer directed this one; like you can tell, or it matters.
